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™‚

Just & Only.

First post after a long time! πŸ™‚ Hope you all will agree with what I have penned down.

We often try taking somethings too lightly.

I just heard about this in one of the videos I was watching today morning. How important are these two words “Just” and “Only” in everything that we do.

Hard to believe. But it’s so true that these words have much greater impact on what we do.

For Example: Let me take the same example I heard of which made sense to me.

It’s Just a Game / It’s Only a Job! – Sounds so unimportant, also feels like it’s not that important for the one saying it.

On the other hand.

Its Just a Game / Its Only a Job!  (Read this without the word Just / Only in it) – Sounds so important, feels it’s really important for the one saying it.

Because there will be somebody else who will be waiting for such Game/ Job and turn it into a Career. Unlike the one who is playing a Game or doing a Job just for the sake of doing it.

Sometimes, these words will also end up being a trap in disguise!

Yes, remember anytime telling to yourself?

  • Let me try smoking Just one Cigarette! (Consequence – Many end up smoking it for lifetime)
  • Let me hang on Instagram/Facebook Only for 5 mins and then I’ll get back to my studies! (Consequence – You don’t turn up to your studies for a much longer time maybe even an hour or more)

Falling prey to these words, we all sometime or the other usually will be a victim of such decisions. It show mentally strong are you in taking a firm decision.

Be sure on what you’re doing. Be firm in what you want to do. Just don’t fall a prey to these words over and over again!

Is there anything that I have missed on? Please feel free to share your thoughts on this by using the comments section below!

Happy Reading! πŸ™‚
