The gap …

eba785a2-b789-4609-a6f6-cb1b217e16f1This article is written in true inspiration from many of us…struggling on a day today routine…to live our dreams!

“THE GAP” … I want to be this, I want to do that, I want to reach out there, I want to see myself here …. are some of the goals we set, for ourselves, right?. We start aspiring ourselves at a young age, isn’t it? But, at the same time, I have heard lot of old people share about their own lives – saying, what if I had done this I would have become that or what if I could carry my youngster days more focused…. 🙂 😦 ..would have led a better life…etc..

On the other hand, the irony is that, we get to meet our elders who have led a successful life as per them, lived all their dreams in reality and contented with the entire life journey they have had, with no regrets…!!!

Be it in contentment or in anxiousness lies our inner peace which we should definitely notice…I feel. Whether or not we are successful or not, it’s we who get pinched at the end of the day, it’s we who feel proud of ourselves and it’s we who feel low, or it’s we again, who feel on top of the world! isn’t it?…..we go through soo many emotions, as we would have, had or have been analyzing ourselves more than anybody else!….right?

It’s all life situations where we have landed here today and it’s “US” to decide where we are heading where, and when….isn’t it?

So, when this much of a wisdom is there in our own hands,…why is that we are not filling the gap ….? the gap to reach there..the gap to see ourselves there..the gap which will put an end to all our inner doubts and thoughts.!

It’s just that, this gap comes with a price…a huge price, where we need to be more and more focused, more realistic in true sense, not to give up even if its the hardest thing,…. right? In other words, we need no explanations from others as it’s the “inner voice” that will make us reach where ever we aspire to see ourselves….isn’t it?  It surely comes again with lots of sacrifices, tough routines, discipline to practice,……but in the enddddd ,…isn’t it, an ultimate pleasure to see ourselves reached out there?

It’s a true bliss, as per me! It’s an experience that cannot be written in words as your happiness can’t be measured when this ULTIMATE blessing is seen in reality.

So, don’t we play a major role in creating us? The question is ON!

Design !!

“DESIGN”, a very vast subject, isn’t it? What comes to your mind when you get to hear  this word, ‘Design’?

7a149227-1633-4f3b-b7cf-1292b6dfb406Well, for me, its my favourite word offlate 😀 , it’s like my fav hobby as I have turned my passion to profession!! With each passing day, it gets more and more interesting for me, as I get to create a whole new lot of stuff for my clients by drafting a design that looks just like their dream, in other words, just like how they want it to be !

…and by the end of it, after all the effort put by the entire team, me being an Interior Designer not only get to see the visuals of my client’s dreams but also as an additional lottery, I get to see their happy and contented faces! 😀 😀

So, sitting towards the parkside of my apartment, I was just relating the same happy faces of clients, to the happy faces of ours, in our own lives…. In simple sense, the entire process of designing our own life is also soo soo similar, isn’t it?

Ultimate aim we all hold, is to be happy and to look back one day and see what all we have done till date to have reached there, right?. So, in other words, it’s like a route map which is so clear in front of us, isn’t it?

I hope you get it … what am trying to say here… as a designer myself, I feel, “design is like a route map” as the destination is in front of us, giving us options to choose our path, as per our dreams so as to reach out there! 🙂

Life like this, if at all we can map, can get so easy , isnt it? 😀 🙂

There’s no theory or thumb rule to it. It’s just that we all, here in our design profession, follow, something, – that may be termed as “reverse strategy”, I guess. In my own words to explain you, it’s like a set – end scene that we visualize, and as per that, we design – to see the desired end picture!!

As simple as this !! How I wish we could also ‘visualize’ and “map” our routine as per our dream, Right? Like how a designer reaches his/her client’s dream by the end of every single project….life,…. in the same way, is a vast project! Isn’t it?

So, don’t you think so you need to give yourself a minutes time, to en-route  your destination, to start your travel…as per that !!?? Am not joking  .. all it needs is a start with a clear vision – which I call a “map” here.

Of course, it can’t happen as easy or tough as designing a house may be, but it takes lots more time and of course endless effort. Inspite of all this,  if u don’t miss out on your “map” and design of the goal that have set for yourself, then, for sure you will reach out there one day!!!

Self Discovery

img_6689“Self Discovery” ….a precious journey to know yourself !

We speak this much…judge this much..but… but… but… :D, when it comes to speaking about ourselves, don’t we stammer? Do we have a quick answer? Do we actually know ourselves properly?:) You might be an amazing person around, achieved these many things in life.. but when it comes to yourself, have you ever given time for yourself – to know yourself better?

We often come across this common question in any of the job interviews…asked to us… where in, you are asked to speak about yourself. Haven’t we practiced our answers? 😀 Few of us have… few of us haven’t. Forget interview… it’s for us to know ourselves better, right?

How does it help? Self observation always helps, as it is only then, you realize your strengths, weaknessess, your happiness, your habits, your likes…dislikes… etc.. Each one of us are so busy in day today life setting up goals for ourselves. But, amidst this set busy routine schedules, where do we stand today emotionally,  is something that we don’t even give a thought, so as to improve ourselves to reach out there where we wish to be. Financially, we are all good at :D, but, more than that, don’t you think, being a better human first…is something more prominent? Where do we stand there? It’s an open question, isn’t it?

I feel, this is one simple way again … to be more sorted, from within, and gaining this kind of a clarity is the much needed thing as we all live in a fast moving city life! Take very few minutes in a day … to observe yourself… coz once it’s a routine to you.. it will help you to be more strong, more peaceful, more appropriative towards situations,…..overall, isn’t it a plus?…over a period of time? 😀

It is only then…all our goals can be eventually achieved as we know to handle our things better…whatever the hurdles we may come across,.. as we know ourselves better!

To be more precise, know yourself better, before anybody judges you… NOT TO GET shattered with comments, judgements around you, “BE YOU” !! For you are “GOD’S VERY OWN MASTERPIECE” ! Know yourself better!

 

 

Create your own sunshine.

img_7471.png“Create your own sunshine” written, in observance of nature….

Every morning, reminds us of the fact that it’s us, who’s one in nature, and it’s us who has to shine … and that too every single day. Our day’s purpose when we wake up has to be, to shine!! Whatever may be your day is going to be like, however hectic it is supposed to be, how much ever boring it would have been meant to be, still,,,, it’s left to us, to be a “hero” or not, during the day! Right?

The morning sunshine, does remind us of our own routine, right? Come what may ..we have only seen the sun, rise in the morning and set in the evening…whatever the climate may be, whatever the season might be…the SUN is constantly shining 😀 , isn’t it? no matter what…even if the clouds have blocked… it’s again seen. Where would life exist at all…otherwise?… Right? It’s the “heroism” that we can see here. An unfaded superhero, born to shine!! 

What’s our take back from this? It’s the ‘HEROISM’ that’s eternal. That’s constant, that’s permanent… that does not fade. Isn’t it? Have you observed?

Such is the ‘heroism’ from within that one can follow …so as to reflect the same on others. In other words, let’s be kind, let’s be helpful, let’s be compassionate, let’s be loving, let’s be adorable, let’s be beautiful ….soo beautiful and complete from within, that, we automatically shine from outside. It’s not only about we shining here, but its also, to an extent, bringing about that ‘rainbow of shine’ in people around us!!. Trust me, from the situation you are in , to the ambiance you create, everything, can get so natural , isn’t it? As, this kind of an energy is coming, from within…!!And, that’s being in nature…for me!

For this to happen, there’s certainly a “mee” time that’s required each day without fail to gain this kind of a compassion. A mee time, which knows no worldly things around, which knows no roles to play around ! It’s a much needed thing, as we , all of us indeed are so very tuned in our lives to our roles, this much. Isn’t it.

So, let’s uproot ourselves… such is an ‘Ora’ that one can spread…where there’s only light and positivity everywhere !. This shine in us is as true as us. So, let’s not fade it , let’s focus on nurturing it, for, it’s ours.

 

“After all, the reflection is anyways seen… by us, from within … by others, from outside !!!…….”

Write your own destiny!

img_9200It’s you, to define your own life. Not anybody else, right? It’s your life and it’s you who has to shape it, the way you want it. 

Then, why is that we get hurt? Why is that we stop? Why is that we are not able to express? Why is that we are stepping back each time?? Is it because we value others opinion on us ? Or is it because we lack self confidence?

Each one of us are born with our own strengths and weaknesses. Isn’t it? Are we focusing on our strength or weakness, is the question.. 😀 , do we know ourselves or are we taking others judgements seriously? If yes, how can we contribute to our own destiny or life, if we depend this much on others to know about ourselves..? 

As a matter of fact, others opinion on us in our life doesn’t matter or shouldn’t matter. Of course, we have to respect elders, take their advice, listen to all criticisms , for they make us strong. All respect! for the kind of experience our ancestors have had, definitely to take their words, advice and follow also if required!

But, in this day and age, there are certainly few people around you, whose victory, only depends on you giving up. Whose entertainment lies, only in your tears. Have you noticed?

Whatever may be the situation in your life,  you are the decision maker of your own destiny, your own happy life, right? Then, why blame others?? Do we actually have to give prominence to them, this much? Is my question.! 😀

My feel is, as it’s your life, you rock it!! The more they want you to loose, you win. The more they want you to cry, you laugh. The more they want to see your defeat, you shine. The more they want you to achieve, achieve more n more…:D, isn’t it? . Let’s dictate our own destiny where in, we dont hurt others, focus on spreading happiness.., makes sense?

If they are yours, if they are your well wishers, then, they will definitely wish for your victory !!! They will want you to smile, they will want to see you shine … such are the people who deserve all your love and time !! Value and respect all those people around you, who are this genuine, who are yours.

It’s time…to live life! Without any grudge or disturbance. Let’s be passionate. There’s so much to achieve. Let’s invest our time and energy in that.

Start !! Build your own destiny !! It all begins with a clean mind !! Make it your’s today !! Start working on yourself , your own life, it’s a beautiful journey !!

Go – Kart 😀

img_7466.png

Go Kart !! So much fun !! As you race and race , you want to win .. you want to reach first 😀. It’s a good thing ! Adventure is always super fun ! You, for a moment forget who you are, what your duties are, and just live at this moment, so as to live, is to win !! It’s amazing isn’t it. Any adventure sport for that matter, is the same .

You .. have no choice but to be, and live in the moment … to win! 😀 yes, it’s the only thing !! so good it can get there🤗, right?

But, why is that we need this kind of a ‘push’ each time ? If not for any adventure or any new stuff, we are back to our own world of thoughts, isn’t it? any reasons?? For no good , I should say  …. as these are the thoughts which often curb enthusiasm in us. And, that is where, I should say, a child’s enthusiasm towards anything is unmatched!

So let’s be “thought free” anywhere we are, the glow on our face is anyways seen if we are living just for this minute !!

Or .. even after all this, if it still gets bugging, go, Karting 😍😀. Adventure in any form … is definitely fun, getting out from your routine .. is a basic need of the hour 😍.

 Be joyful , be adventurous , be thought free ” . 

Entangled

img_7468How much entangled we all our, with every person around us, we have a kind of an emotion that we share, be it, knowingly or unknowingly. Emotion could be in any form …could be in the form of happiness, love, anger, greed, jealousy, pride, anxiety, weakness, anything for that matter.

A simple shop keeper in a grocery store, can either make you happy by giving that extra discount 😀 , or send you back with a happy mood even otherwise 🙂 . Our house maid doesn’t turn up … we are in worst possible mood, isn’t it 😀

So, in other words, our mood depends on these many people, could be all people around us, with whom we are entangled all through our day.

One mantra for happiness can be, do not let any of these people enter your mind or heart. Do not get entangled in any situation or with any person. As it can only bring in an emotion, that’s temporary. Every action in the body is a result of the chemical reaction that goes through inside, right? So every emotion that you have felt or feel will have a chemical reaction and our reaction to it is always an outcome!

Not required, right ?

Rather, let’s get entangled within ourselves, in nature! In other words, time to surround ourselves in love, empathy, kindness, care, courtesy, wisdom n happiness !! isn’t it? So that, we not only are, but can also bring in that calmness in others, that can actually change the whole situation topsy turvy !! Try it out !! Not only are you calm and composed, and happy like this, but you are actually influencing an other person around you also, to be the same !

As the saying goes, ‘always mind your mind’. How true… right?
