Self Love

Self love is the purest form of love that exists, apart from mother’s love of course. We often forget to say ‘I love you’ to ourselves. Dear readers, please treat this post as a reminder to say the three magical letters to yourself ! Unconditional positive regard for oneself is the biggest gift ever. Love yourself & you’ll see life shine like a bright diamond 🙂

Hurry! Run Away…From Toxic People !!!

Meeting or even giving mind space to toxic people is such a waste of time. It’s pitiful how some people can ONLY & ONLY spew venom on others. In case you are wondering who these toxic people are, let me give you some of their common traits : bullying, taunting, labeling, ostracizing others, only to hide their own insecurities. I am sure you must have come across such prototypes at least once.

The situation becomes worse when our own so called ‘near & dear ones’ look down on us. Hurting people by excluding them, bad mouthing them, treating them like dirt for no plausible fault of the victim, is a sin which even the Universe doesn’t forgive so easily. Karma eventually catches up.


To all those who have ever felt unloved & unwanted, please remember you are BEAUTIFUL! If some people can’t appreciate your worth, it’s their misfortune, not yours. Cut & shut such toxicity from your life. Life is meant to be lived, not dragged. Focus on building your own life. The ability to move on is a trait that can be cultivated. Self love is the best form of love. Don’t let their venom kill your soul.

Love & peace to all !!

Kindness Is A Fashion Statement..

Which never goes out of vogue

In life, if there is one lesson that each and every child should imbibe, it is that what goes around, comes around. Being kind not only helps others around us but also helps us in the process. Our actions always catch up so it’s advisable to be as correct in our conduct & thoughts as we can be. Yes, life is not perfect but we can at least be conscious of our own behavior in order to shield ourselves from avoidable misery.

Love & peace to all !!

Love As An Emotion

Love – for a person/thing/place, is such a warm, cozy feeling. It has the power to make the world go round. It is way better than hate. Hatred only breeds negativity but love liberates. Of course it feels better to be loved than to just keep giving love, but even the latter is a very empowering feeling. I’d like to remind all those people who nurture and live on hate, to give warmth a chance. It not only would make them a much calmer & happier lot but also spread positive vibes in the air !!

Break Up/ Divorce

One wonders why this so called ‘society’ looks down on a couple who don’t want to be together anymore. Why is it such a big societal taboo to declare that this relationship didn’t work out & it’s time to move on? Moving on means the couple is hoping for better times in each of their lives & in their loved ones’ lives too. Is seeking happiness a crime in the eyes of the world?

It’s better to have two happy homes than to have one unhappy home. Often couples stick together for the sake of their children, not realizing that it’s those very children who would get impacted the most in the long term. Growing up, they’ll only see their parents fight & curse each other – which will plant the seeds of aggression, irritability, helplessness & commitment phobia in them. I sincerely believe that it is in the best interest of all the people involved to let go than to stick to a wound that will only degrade with time. Get a surgery done, remove the wound & live happily thereon.

As humans, we must realize that nothing, absolutely nothing, should come in the path of our own happiness. Why do we start sacrificing, trying to please others rather than pleasing our own selves? Hedonism isn’t such a bad thing, after all. I am not advocating irrational, selfish behavior, all I am saying is that instead of living a lie, it’s better to live with love & laughter. We are on this planet for a short while, let’s be joyful & spread cheer rather than living in gloom forever.

Write A Good One!

We are all but stories. Just like a story ends after a novel runs out of pages or a movie runs out of reel likewise life ends after we run out of breaths but memories stay. Write a good story (i.e. live a good life) so that viewers would want to revisit YOUR story again & again.. If you can write a classic, even better – it’s characteristic being that every time one re-reads the classic, some new lesson/message gets imprinted in the mind. That’s why they are considered timeless.. Happy writing, happy living!

Rise In Your Own Eyes

You decide to walk on a path which hits a dead end & now you are in a fix as to what to do next. Yes, you made a mistake but can’t you forgive yourself & improve? Why is it so hard to be lenient with your own self when you can easily pardon others for their follies?

Admitting to yourself that you are flawed is the key to becoming better as a human. Don’t cry over spilled milk instead get a cloth to clean the floor & be careful not to repeat the same mistake again. Wallowing in self pity or comparing yourself with others won’t get you anywhere in life but learning from your errors & improving yourself on a daily basis sure will.

Remember, you are your own competition. Strive to be better than yesterday, everyday. To err is human, to forgive is divine. Master the art of forgiving yourself & start afresh to live the life you have always wanted to live !

Learning To Be Mentally Strong

In life if there is one lesson that should be understood by one & all (irrespective of the ‘n’ number of individual differences that exist in the world), it is that we need to be mentally well built. There is a reason why our brain is situated right on top of our bodies. Our mind rules everything. Perception is often different from sensation. Our perception defines our lives.


Imbibe the fact that we cannot possibly control everything – we can’t dictate the terms of someone else’s life. At best, we have power over our own lives & that ‘power’ streams from our mind. If we choose to be helpless in front of circumstances, then please remember we are making a CHOICE. If we are anyway choosing, it’s better to make a better, wiser choice, isn’t it? Opt to be in control of YOURSELF. Life will eventually fall in order because it consists of seasons – one season after the other & time heals the biggest of wounds. Don’t let yourself disintegrate with the winds of time rather be like pollen & fly with the wind to plant a new life 🙂


Secondly, BREATHE. Yeah, just that. Breathing in & out fully for 30-90 seconds helps in anxiety management. Don’t believe me? Try it out yourself the next time you are panicking over that dreaded exam or that investors’ pitch or even when someone dear is admitted in the hospital. Respiration has the power to heal your nerves.


Stress will always be a part of human & animal life. We can’t wish it away. Frankly, even animals undergo stress from time to time. During such times, never forget that we are more than the sum of all the chapters that exist in this book called ‘Life’. Some chapters may be hard but some are easy too. Let’s stride through this journey with a smile because we won’t help the situation by sobbing anyway. In fact, we may make it worse.
Light & Peace to All 🙂

The Balm Called Music

Music can instantly lighten the atmosphere. It has the capacity to uplift your mood & make you feel better in a matter of minutes. No wonder most soap operas & movies have a background score to add that extra effect. Even animals seem to respond to some soulful tunes. Seriously, life without music can be so dry.

One piece of unsolicited advice, next time you feel low, turn to music therapy. You may just see your happy, confident self come back 🙂

Empathy-less Folks Cut Such A Sorry Figure!

Have you ever had an encounter (an unfortunate one, though! ) with a person who simply lacks empathy (i.e. the ability to feel what another is going through)? How can such people ever truly be happy, I wonder. What would you say to a person who is bereft of emotions or someone who only reserves emotions like care for a select few (say, close family members) and not for anyone else?

I really feel sorry for such empathy less souls. To my mind, they don’t deserve to be called humans in the right sense simply because a person is just bones & flesh without emotions. Emotions are what set a human apart. Empathy is a trait only found in homo sapiens. Yes animals (especially dogs,horses etc) are intelligent but they can at best sympathize with their human masters. There is a difference between sympathy & empathy.

Such insensitive ‘humans’ eventually end up lonely in life because probably all they did was invest in money or career instead of investing in relationships as well. The quality of a person’s life is determined by only two factors – how happy they are & whether they have meaningful relationships to fall back on or not. Money can’t buy happiness, it’s a fact.

I would urge all those reading this article to develop compassion & empathy in themselves – it’s never too late to embrace positivity & virtues because please remember, in life, what goes around comes around. If we are rude & harsh, the world will also be mean to us but if we are kind, even the Universe would be kind in return.

May there be understanding & care in this world instead of selfishness & rudeness. To quote late Mr Michael Jackson’s song : “We are the world, we are the children, we are the ones who make a brighter day so let’s start giving“. Let’s start loving & living 🙂
