Restore the mind

Hand pick a habit
Or a belief,
Which is straining
Your soul deep down,
Which is holding you back,
Which is gripping your guts
With a unknown fear,
Take a deep breath,
Challenge it and wipe it off,
Fill the empty space with
Hope and positivity,
Get ready to start the new year afresh!

Redefine your fear

From the day we are born, we experience different things in life and meet different people. Based on our experience, we develop certain beliefs or have fear about certain things. As we grow up, our subconscious mind reminds us about those experience and keep the fear alive in our mind. 
That fear unknowingly ties us and restrain us from experiencing it again. I agree, I am not invalidating your fear and saying it’s wrong to have fear about certain things. But I ask you to loosen the grip of the fear and tiptoe to the unknown boundary. Surprisingly that fear might disappear as you experience the same things again in life. You might be able to cut off the string holding you right and breathe freely.

Order something

Life is like a food menu
So many choices to choose from,
either can try favorite dish
which we order every single time,
or can get adventurous
and try a completely new item
which might surprise us,
or look around and order
which someone else is enjoying
You might end up disappointed,
There will be some items
which is not everyone’s favorite,
but it will make your day.
think and decide carefully,
however, it is
few tastes stick to us forever!

Hope

Hope is like a plant
Fruit of positivity,
Add more good thoughts,
Fertilize it with a dream,
Weed the doubts,
Nourish it with the hard work,
Keep it in the promising surrounding,
Work on it day and night
Till you see it strong and alive.

Enable, don’t block

When we always do everything for our kids and parents, have you ever thought about the impact of that on their life? When there is a new technology which they have to learn but finding it difficult initially, Dutifully we come forward and do it ourself, without giving them an opportunity to learn. I don’t deny we are making their life easy. But At the cost of making them dependant on us?  After the first time, they don’t ever try to learn as we are there to do it for them.

This reminds me of an old story I had heard in my childhood. When someone is in suffering, don’t give them money, teach them how to earn money. Clearly, the former one just solves the temporary problem but the latter one solves their future problem also.

Keeping this in mind, next time teach them how to do the work, how to make it work. Be there, support them and supervise them when they try, But don’t do it yourself. Make them independent and eager to learn new things in their life. This is the correct way of helping them and motivating them to experience the thrill of doing things on their own.
