“It is a happiness to wonder; it is a happiness to dream.” – Edgar Allan poe
See good in everything, being happy does not mean you have become perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections. Positive thinking evokes more energy, more initiative and more happiness. The first ingredient to happiness is to avoid any kind of negativity related to past, present or future. To be happy, you must be your own sunshine. Happiness is a conscious choice. Happiness can even be found in the most darkest of times, It all depends on your outlook. Wake up every morning with a great desire to live joyfully. Never let the sadness of your past and fear of your future ruin your present. Live in the moment, live life to the fullest. Some pursue happiness others create it. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts. Your mind is a garden, decorate it. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. Rejoice! 🙂
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted something. “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost is very close to my heart. Various thoughts can be associated with it. I would love to read your interpretation of this poem in the comments. Much love!
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
“Then came the healing time, hearts started to shine, soul felt so fine, oh freeing time it was” -Abherjani
Time is the best answer to hurt. Forgiveness is the cure and above all changing negativity into positivity is the best medicine. Every 24 hours bring with it the opportunity to choose. Time is going to help you, you need to choose to utilize the time to help yourself. Healing is not an overnight process, it is daily cleaning of negative thoughts which reside inside you into positivity. You cannot heal if you refuse to confront yourself. Today will never come again. Be a blessing, be a friend, encourage someone, help someone and spare yourself the negativity. Smile and let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday. If you carry bricks from your past life to the new one, you will end up building the same house all over again. Healing does not mean the damage will never exist, it means that damage no longer controls your life. Healing will only prevail when you choose to walk away from darkness and move towards the light. Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. Uplift yourself. Clear your path towards mental stability and let the river of positivity flow. May hope rise within you and you be the best possible version of yourself. REJOICE! Love life.
“I don’t think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.”- Anne Frank
Create a life that feels good on the inside not the one that look’s good on the outside. Life is made of acts and omissions. If we do not give positive content to our life, it probably will not be good. Life is a journey and only you hold the map. Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass by, it is about dancing in the rain. This is your life, do what you love and do it often. It is never too late to do things differently. You are not given a good life or a bad life. You are given a life and it is up to you to make it good or bad. If you love life, life will love you back. The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts. Your new life starts today. Do not waste it trying to get back to what was taken away. Here’s hoping you live and love your life to the fullest.
“Fear is an idea-crippling, experience crushing, success stalling inhibitor inflicted only by yourself.”- Unknown
Fear is nothing but more than an obstacle that stands in the way of your progress. In overcoming our fears we can move forward stronger and wiser within ourselves.Fear is not real. it is the product of thoughts that you create. Danger is very real, but fear is a choice. You blow your positive thoughts when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith. Stop letting fear rule your life. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. Replace the fear of unknown with positivity. People are disturbed not by things but the view by which they take them. You have two choices either to forget everything and run or face everything and rise. Remember, with every experience in which you look fear in the face, you gain inner strength and confidence. So spread your wings open your door and go after it. The opportunities are all yours.
“Smooth roads never make good drivers, clear skies never make good pilots, problem free life never make strong persons, So do no ask life WHY ME say TRY ME.”- Unknown
When life puts you in tough situations, do not say why me? Just say try me. Everything happens for a reason and a purpose with which it serves you. Today i want you to ask yourself this one question – why not you? You are not what happened to you. You are what you choose to become. We are quick to think others are deserving and they enjoy a better life. The truth is we are equally deserving. It is just about the perspective of how you see and manage things. Life will keep on teaching you lessons, have to desire to learn. Fear or losing hope is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. You have to go wholeheartedly into anything in order to achieve anything worth having. Today choose to awaken yourself with a new perspective of the way you see things in your life.
“I have lost someone whom i loved as a brother, as a lover, as a closest friend, as a remarkable human being. We have also lost one of the best damn actor we will ever see.”- Jack Lemon
No one heals themselves by wounding another. No matter what at least once in your life someone will hurt you, rip you into pieces and wont even bother to watch where the pieces land. Through the breakdown you will learn more about yourself, more about life. No matter what you will grow from it and conquer yourself. When someone hurts you, think of them as a sand paper. They may scratch and hurt but in the end, you will end up polished. The pain you have been feeling can not be compared to the joy that is coming your way. Life is too short to fight or to regret the past. Count your blessings and move out with your head held high. Let it serve you as an opportunity to be better than what you were before. Do not ask yourself why someone keeps hurting you. Ask yourself why you are allowing them to do so? You will be able to rebuilt yourself. Time in itself is a best healer. People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used. It only takes a few seconds to hurt someone, but it takes years to repair the damage. Cherish the hearts that love you. You never lose by loving, you lose by holding back. Life is short, so make it worthwhile. Do not spend your time grieving, just spend it with a smile.
