Book of Life.

Yes, you might be wondering what this guy is up to now πŸ€”

I was just going through a book and found that there where many pages in it with many languages, words, sentences and images. To my astonishment, none of the pages were similar. Every single page was different in one or the other way. With single constant in all the pages of the book was the word “YOU”.

Having seen this in a book I realized, this is not just the case with this book. It’s pretty much the same with almost every other book we see in a book shelf. Most of the words get jumbled up to create different sentences and with words many images also get created, which sometimes will have some meaning to it and sometimes they really don’t.

Having said all these, I would now introduce the characters I created in my imaginary world to explain all that I wrote above. Pardon me for making you read this article twice. Because, I am sure you would want to correlate with the metaphors I considered to express my thoughts.

Book shelf – World we live in.

Book – Life of any individual

Pages – Phases in our life.

Languages – Diversified class of people with different culture.

Words – People around like you and me.

Sentences – Moments that get created based on the people in our life.

Images – Dreams that we create to fulfill it someday.

So bottom line is..

Be it of any language, a book is meaningful to read only when it has right set words which will create the best of pages and some memorable sentences which fulfills the images that are created before book is closed.

Never, waste a Book [Life] that is given to you. Create some valuable pages [phases of your life] so that when you look back there are no regrets but are filled with enjoyable sentences [moments] to cherish. Be sure that all your images [dreams] are completed before your book of life is closed [Last breath].

Do you love your book? πŸ™‚ If not, then better start re-writing it soon.. πŸ™‚

Please don’t forget to drop your thoughts on this article using the comments section below. Do let me know how did you feel reading this article. If you liked it feel free to share it with your loved ones to πŸ˜‰ Means a lot. Happy Reading πŸ™‚

Disclaimer: Based on my personal experience. I have just tried to be a little creative again in expressing my thought about how one should make their life meaningful with proper set of people, dreams, mixture of moments and memories to it.

Marriage – Decision Phase.

Hey guys, I apologize for not writing anything for last few days. Was stuck with loads of work in and out. Anyways, hope you all still there to read and support my writings πŸ™‚

Well, today’s post will be about the phase we go through right before marriage. As most of my friends and me are in a phase of our life, where it is very certain to get notified and be an eligible bachelor to get married. It’s quiet natural to be in the confused state of mind. As to who really is the perfect match for you right?

I hear most of my friends who say out loud that they are getting irritated with this word marriage already. Any thoughts on why this might be happening to them?

As per my understanding, I feel marriage is a very crucial phase in our life. It is such a phase which can either make or break your life. So it very important for us to be careful and choose our partner for life [our better half] very wisely.

And, when we will be in a mindset to take a call on this in a more practical way.. most of the times because of peer pressure from people around you, your relatives, family members, friends, colleagues you end up getting into a state of mind where you get a thought.

God, why do I even have to marry someone. I am doing well all by my own, why can’t everyone just leave me alone.

When you get such thought my friend, I would want you to just seclude yourself from the rest of the world. Stay calm. Sit in a place where it’s only you and no one else to disturb you at-least for sometime. Think over what is the right thing for you to do now?Β What is it that is exactly bothering you?

Is it that any pressure your feeling because of your relatives & family?

Is it that your still not ready to get married?

Is it that you’re not getting the right partner for your life?Β 

Think over it calmly, breakdown your thoughts, analyse it. When you feel your helpless you ain’t really able to figure out what to do I humbly request you to bow down before god almighty and seek his guidance. I am sure he will not let you down. In fact, what I honestly suggest everyone is please keep god in first place no matter what decisions your making in your life. Specially in decisions like marriage, it is really very important.

If you feel that you’re going through a lot of peer pressure – Just let the people who matter to you in your family, relatives or whoever it may be to let them know in what state of mind you are and what is actually bothering you. I am sure, if they care for you they will understand your point of view.

If you feel that you’re still not ready for marriage – Please make it clear to your family members about it at the same time give them a clear understanding why you feel so and by when you think you can be okay to get along with it.

If your feeling thatΒ you’re not getting the right partner – This is the most trickiest part, there can’t be a generic way of dealing with it. But, if it would be me I would pray to god and ask him to do his will for me, guide me to a person who is the right one for me. I am sure he will lead me to the right one! πŸ™‚

I am not sure, if this was of some help for you. If it was then please drop your comments and feedback’s, would love to read them πŸ™‚

Honest thoughts. Happy Reading πŸ™‚

 

 

Point of view.

This is an instinctive post that I am writing today. It just came to my mind when I was watching a movie while I was having dinner with my family this night.

It’s midnight here in India now and I am writing this post, maybe this is why people who know me well call me as nocturnal these days! πŸ˜€.

Coming back to what I was saying. Situation in the movie was something like this.

A marriage proposal breakup took place because the guy [who is self-centered, only cares about his happiness and he just wants to win and live his life just the way he wants to, he was totally against the word compromise and believed that two people in marriage can be happy only when they are exactly the same] on the other side was this girl [who was exactly opposite of how he was, she always cared about others around her, who believed that she would be happy when everyone along with her is happy and the one who believed if two people in marriage needs to be happy it is not necessary that they should be the same inΒ  everything].

With this background, it so happened that the guy felt, the girl was making lot of compromises to make herself fit into his lifestyle, his likes & dislikes. She had to leave her dance for him as she was learning it from past 20 years and enjoyed doing it. Little did he know that the girl was doing all this for him only because she clearly knew and saw that her world and priorities with the marriage would be just him and she was doing all that with her wish and was happy doing it.

After all that took place, girl was shattered to pieces when she knew that the guy whom she had started to love and felt that he is the perfect guy for her had left her completely broken with his point of view.

If you try to understand something from this, this just wasn’t the part of only the movie scene I narrated above. It’s almost the same with you, me and everyone around us these days. Rarely, you try to understand what is the point of view of other person in front of you. Based on whatever the situation you are in, you almost tend to build the probable possibilities, foresee things based on your assumptions and give your verdict to the person standing in front of you and just walk away.

If it does happen like this, for sure you will lose the person who was in front you while you passed the verdict because you never gave him/her any chance of understanding his/her point of view.

Well, because of this I see that most of us loosing out on hard-earned relationships be it friends, family, relatives or whoever it is. Only when you express your point of view & allow the one in front of you to express his point of view. Things get clear. Misunderstanding never occur. Every relationship will be a wonderful place to say without any hatred, misunderstandings and heart-aches.

And yes, later part of the movie the girl somehow made him realize he never gave her a chance to express her point of view and when he got to know what the girl’s point of view was about what he had thought about the compromises she was making for him and why she was doing all that for him. ItΒ was a happy ending to movie at the end.

Live your life. Express your point of view. Allow others to express it too and see how life changes in the best possible ways.

Honest opinion. Feel free to express your opinion about this. Let me know if I have missed out on anything. I will surely be more than happy to look into it.

Happy Reading πŸ™‚

Liebstar Award – #2

Hey guys, it’s totally an honor to receive this award for the 2nd time. Well, it’s almost been more than 2 weeks having been nominated for this award by this awesome blogger friend of mine Avni. Thank you so much for nominating me for this award and I honestly apologize for delay in responding to this as I was damn caught up and stuck in my work.

Avni has already made her presence felt across many fellow bloggers already because of her humble and kind nature. You guys should definitely check out her blog 11avni11 she’s a sweet little 15-year-old girl who honestly writes all that pops up to her mind and intends to make her readers feel good & satisfied about what she writes.

Liebster Award

It’s an award in which bloggers nominate other bloggers for showing respect to their works and their dedication. It’s an appreciation and recognition for all the fellow bloggers out there in the blogosphere.

Let’s get back and answer the questions asked By Avni!

1. Day Or Night? – It’s a little difficult to answer this question for me to be honest with this. Day – Gives me an opportunity to start a fresh and keep hoping. Night – Gives me an opportunity to spend some lone time & find peace within myself.

2. Coffee Or Ice cream? – Coffee for sure. Because, In one word – I just love it.

3. Winters Or Summer? – Winters it is. Simply because I love winter season as all the activities related to Christmas begins and there will be Carols, Christmas Sweets, Celebrations everywhere, Cake and so on.. πŸ˜€

4. High School Or University? – Yet again, it’s really difficult for me in some situations to choose between two. Like in the case of Day & Night and now this. Let me reason out why.. High School – Nostalgic! days which remains in one’s memories for the rest of our lives. University – Teenage time where in you undergo all sort of emotional battles and you’re in phase of transition from amateur teenager to a mature young adult. These two-phase being one of the most memorable days of my life. I really can’t opt between one and thus explained both of it.. πŸ˜‰

5. Dancing Or Singing? – Singing for sure. Being able to play guitar and sing along.. Dancing has never been my cup of tea.

6. Reading Or Writing? – Both again.. (I’m so sorry breaking your rule of choosing just one πŸ˜› ) Reading – It makes me feel good basically when I get along and connect with the other person has penned down. Writing – It lets me ease out my emotions in times of joy, in times of stress and so on.. πŸ˜‰

7. Children Or Parents? – OMG! Avni.. this question is surely like “Which one do you like the most? Your Left Eye or Right Eye?” πŸ˜› (Of-course, to a married man though). I being single, I have all the liberty to choose Parents as of now as I don’t have any children yet.. πŸ˜›

On a serious note. Children and Parents when they get older and older as we grow up.. They both are just one and the same. Their isn’t much difference between them if we look at them right? One request to all those who are reading this note.. please please take care of your parents when they start getting old in the same way as they managed to take care of you when you were a kid. We know it too right? we had no clue of what to we wanted at that moment but they still managed to understand it and provide us with it just to keep us happy and satisfied. If at all we attempt to just to do a little bit of what they did for us. Then, no doubt they will have their best of time in their old age. πŸ™‚

8. Street Art Or Paintings by Professionals (eg. Mona lisa, starry night)? – Street Art – No specific reason to it. Just like them.

9. Instagram Or Facebook? – Instagram – Because it is filled with only pictures that talk to me much closely and I connect with it well than I do with Facebook these days.

10. Hill stations Or Beaches? – Beaches for sure. I love the incomparable peace we get by seeing those tides running towards us and leaving us behind with a subtle touch. Gushing sound of tides, morning sunrise and evening sunset makes me feel happy within. πŸ™‚

11. What do you like the most about India? (Your views about India). – India being my country! I love it the most. Their isn’t just one thing that I love the most about India. There are many things of course. Being such a diversified country with huge masses living together and talking in various languages but still are together living in one piece of land and that is India to me. Diversified with different cultures but united with one proud though that we are Indians! and this I love the most.

In the end. Thank you so much again Avni for giving me this opportunity to answer these amazing questions. I really enjoyed it. πŸ™‚

Cry out.

I am writing this post today. Not because of any specific reason, but just to express myself and what I truly feel sometimes.

Being human it’s true every one of you go through hardships, troublesome time, confused, do something which you don’t want to do but eventually have to do because there is no other go, may it be for your good or bad, completely pressurised and won’t understand how will you ever be able to look up and face the world around you.

Just because of this reason that you are surrounded with so many people around you. It’s natural to hold yourself back and make yourself strong enough that you appear all rock solid, emotionally stable and strong human in front of everyone and also you tend to prove it to yourself. True. Undoubtedly, you must get strong to face the world around you.

But, amidst of all this there comes a time when you feel deep down within you that all you want to do once is TO CRY OUT LOUD.

You know, it’s really very difficult to actually cry your heart out when your surrounded with so many people who care about you, who can’t see you break down like that and that’s why you stand up again and cry within yourself in the closet of your own self, without letting anyone know that you actually did cry out some-night, some-day or whenever possible.

But, doing this will burden your heart more and more. As days pass by, you will seem to be rock solid in front of everyone except for the one person and that one person is YOU who knows that even you want to cry yourself out and lighten yourself.

Trust me when I say this, when you really make some time for yourself and spend some time alone and rethink, relieve yourself from such heartaches by crying yourself out is when you actually feel much much better.

I wish, I could do that too sometime soon. You should also try this out and maybe then you may feel much much better before crying your heart out.

To all the brave hearts out there, who are staying strong for themselves, their family, their close ones, their friends or be it for anyone you love.

Honest opinion. Not being judgemental. But trying to be practical. πŸ™‚

Missing Piece of Puzzle.

Puzzle is a word which derives lots and lots of metaphoric explanation when compared to our day-to-day life.

How many times you have ever been puzzled in your life. How many of you have come across this situation?

One moment you feel you have started to get all that you desire or wish to have in your life. Everything is falling in place. Your super happy about it.

The very next moment you start to feel there is something very important which is still missing in your life. And suddenly you start craving for it. All the happiness is gone for a toss. Only thing you want is that something which you crave for even after you have every other thing with you.

People might say it’s human tendency to always crave and desire for something new every time. I totally agree with it.

But at the same time. There will be something very special to you which we will leave you completely puzzled and you really can’t be without it in your life.

You might even get a thought. Why should I only be in this kind of situation every single time.

True! that it is but-natural. At this very moment you might be puzzled. You might be in complete confusion. Perplexed. Worried.

But, amidst all this remember. Bottom line is be sure of one thing. There is nothing that happens in your life which has no purpose or rightful reason behind it.

If that precious piece is missing and keeping you puzzled. There is a reason. Wait for it. There comes a time which will answer the reason behind the missing piece which is keeping you puzzled.

In short. Life is a Puzzle and Craving for something precious in your life is the missing piece. When you get it is the ultimate time when the puzzle is completely solved.

Happy Reading. 😊

sunshine-blogger-award.jpg

What is this Sunshine Blogger Award?

This award is given by bloggers to fellow bloggers who inspire positivity and creativity in the blogging community.

Below are the answers to the questions asked – πŸ™‚

  • Why did you start blogging?

Well, the answer is I always wanted to have a blog of my own and pen down my thoughts and expressions through it. But, it never really came true until 7 – October – 2017. It was the day when I finally stepped into blogging community ever since then I am loving what I am doing here. I enjoy writing in my free time.

  • Who is your favorite blogger?

My favorite bloggers are many and among them all. I really enjoy reading the way Dr. Perry writes in his blog. He writes really well and motivates many others too on his blog MakeItUltraβ„’.

  • What keeps you going and motivated?

There is no single mantra that keeps me going or motivated. In-fact, there are many. To name one of it. It is always that desire in me to scribble my thoughts and ideas by which I am personally motivated or inspired. At the same time if it serves the purpose of helping out others too. Then that definitely makes my day and keeps me going.

  • Which is your weirdest habit?

Ummm.. there isn’t any such weirdest habit that I have or is coming to my mind right now! πŸ˜€

  • What is your favorite cuisine?

It is undoubtedly, my all time favorite “Hyderabadi Biryani” πŸ˜‹

  • What is your that personality trait which you would like to change in yourself?

Well, it would be my anger and less patience. At times I really get impatient and lose my temper. Which I am really working on improving on it. πŸ™‚

  • What are the first three things you always notice in a person?

i) Attitude – How grounded he/she is so that he/she freely speaks to everyone around without any ego.

ii) Honesty – According to me. It is one of the pre-requisite for a person to be honest and straight forward no matter what. Because, I believe when you are honest and straight forward things are straight enough to handle and less messier with very little complications.

iii) View point – I personally believe. In being positive with whatever I do. It is for sure to have both positive and negative in everything around us. But, it is up to us on how we take it. If we start looking at things in a positive way. Definitely, positive starts flowing in and around you. So this is what I would look forward to see in every person i come across. Be advised (on my personal experience again). If at all you find negativity in anyone try to explain about it and change it to the best of your efforts.

  • Which is the best book you have read till date?

It would definitely be – The Be Happy Attitudes by Robert Schuller. It was one of the books I read long ago. But, it still remains on of the best book I have read till date.

  • How do you deal with the negative comments of the people about your appearance or anything else?

Well, if you ever get any such comments. Be assured, you are being noticed. It means you are making a difference. There is something unique in you that is making people talk about you. Take it in this way. If they are spending their valuable time in talking about you. Then you are worth their time and that’s awesome πŸ˜€ Keeping it short. Until you are happy with what you are and if you are confident about your appearance. I really don’t think you should even bother about such negative comments and like I said earlier in this answer convert that negative comment as a compliment in your mind. It will make you merrier and happier again πŸ˜‰

  • What is the meaning of your name?

Haha.. I have always heard my grandfather relating me to be a king (i.e. in terms of wisdom and knowledge through lord almighty) and my name is Richard because my father loved it. So in correlation to this. I would prefer keeping the meaning of my name the same as grandfather explained it to me. πŸ˜›

  • What is your goal in life?

To be truthful and honest by walking in faith. Humble and polite to my parents. Attain all the enormous success in my career and riches in the world so that I can keep myself and all my loved one’s happy. πŸ™‚

Introspect.

I always believe if you have anything in your mind and your doubtful about it.

Introspect. If at all you do introspect. Then be happy about it. Undoubtedly you’re in the right track. Because when you do and listen to your good inner voice. Your saved from committing any mistake or sin against god.

If not, then your bound to do a mistake or something that is not right by listening to your bad inner voice and commit mistake or sin against god.

All that I expressed above. Is because of the statement I heard from my brother when he said yesterday evening during healthy discussion about word of god.

If you’re a person led by Holy Spirit you will not do anything contrary to it in your day-to-day life.

So if you’re not introspecting yourself before doing something. Be it anything lawful or unlawful. Think about it. Start introspecting and listen to your good inner voice. Be sure. Things will change. Blessings will flow and good things are bound to happen.

Happy Reading 😊

Mom.

Hey Mom,

This is a letter to you from your son on your birthday.

I would first like to say though you’re a very soft natured and warm-hearted person, thank you for being so rock solid. I know it never was an easy Journey. There were many situations when you were drained completely with sheer trauma of disappointment and sadness because of all untimely death of dad. But, I want to thank you for being rock solid and standing firm for me and my sister and regaining strength for our sake.

You made me strong by imbibing in me the word of god and taught me ways of how I can walk in faith by clinging on to the word of Christ.

With this I would like to say on your birthday.

All your days of sadness, trouble and hurt are gone by. I promise you, I’ll keep all of them miles & miles away from you. I will through the grace of god fulfil all your dreams and get you all that you wanted to have and see to it that you will always have that wonderful smile on your face all through the days of your life ever after.

Love you mom. πŸ’ž

Thankyou so much for being there for me and my sister all the time. Happy Birthday. πŸŽ‚
