APPRECIATE YOURSELF

Swamped with responsibilities, cultural ethics, work pressure, love and family issues, there is a lot of things that keep floating inside you at a time. It is normal. The brain of a woman is structure to handle multiple tasks simultaneously. But in the mess somewhere we forget something which is most important, which you in yourself. Never demean your value, you are a power-packed superwoman and you don’t wait for appreciations. Appreciate yourself, YOU don’t need anyone.

GET A HOBBY

Each one of us is blessed with something that gives us that divine peace. Think about it, what is that one thing that unlinks you from this plasticity of the world and you log into your own blissful world. It could be writing, traveling, cooking, gardening, even talking. Find it and make sure you always take time for your hobby.

EXERCISE

Not because you have to fit into that slim fit dress and walk on the ramp but because you are supposed to take care of yourself. Exercising not only keeps you fit and healthy but it also helps as an anti-depressant for you. You are more confident and hence things around you automatically turn bright and flamboyant. And not to forget that slim fit dress, yes you can make it happen!

HANGOUT

meet people, talk to them, know whats going on outside your ecosystem. It could be frequent or once in a while but it helps. It helps you to discover those points where you are doing better than others at the same time where you can help others to improve. It is important, talking does half of the work when it comes to solving a problem. Others opinion matters, though the decision is all yours

GET UP EARLY

I know this sounds really like your MOM but trust me it works. Getting up early helps you sort your day. You have time to exercise, meditate, sort out the things and then start the day. I know it is difficult especially to those who run through a hectic daily routine and battle with the road traffic, but once you put in a habit, it will automatically make you realize how positivity boosts when you get up early in mornings. Try to start with 15 mins and gradually you will move backward and be able to make it at six in the morning.

Be A Happy Vibe

Today I got a text from one of my good friends, that she wants to end up everything and run. I called her, but she couldn’t talk. I texted her back and asked her to calm down and speak to me whenever she could. As a short-term relaxation therapy, I asked her to go for a brisk walk, often n release of energy helps us to get rid the of negativity that surrounds us. Later when we talked over the phone, she frowned. She had issues with work life, a non-supportive/non-earning husband, a little daughter to take care and no support from parents. To give you a slight background let me tell you that she is highly placed in her job and does wonderful work, she earns decent. But the bottom line is she isn’t happy. I talked to her for an hour, I wanted her to vent out everything that she was carrying inside her. She is better, I am going to see her soon and talk more.

loveyourself

Often while we are well off in life in terms of money, job, relationship, one thing that we often miss out is, happiness and peace of mind. I am sure to survive it is necessary to run after your work, take care of our kids and family, but often we get a little less in return which curses us. Today I want all of us to take a pledge that whatever be the situation, we must take care of one person always in life and that is you yourself. Yes! don’t expect anyone to pamper you.

Let me put it in easy words:

  • No one loves you more than your parents, but they will not be with your whole life. This is a harsh reality.
  • Your siblings will get busy with their families.
  • Your husband will be always focused more on your children’s future so he will not love you as he did in the very first days of your relationship.
  • Your kids will grow up and get busy in their own circles.
  • Your job will not support you if you aren’t well physically and mentally.

Hence, It is important that we should focus on our self-more than anything else, because if you are not well how do you expect to be there for others, which you need to. Most important, ever demean yourself, love yourself, people normally get more inspired with positive happy vibes. Be a happy vibe for someone.

STAY HEALTHY AND EXERCISE

Eat healthy food, it helps immunity and makes you stronger to fight the battle you are on to. Take little steps, dance while you are cooking, do simple exercises while you are on your work desk, walk more, use stairs and drink lots of water.

YOU ARE SPECIAL

Keep yourself in priority, admire yourself. Remember people will automatically love you if you love yourself. Be a happy Vibe.

DRESS UP AND CHIN UP

Dress up and look good. It will keep you motivated and happy

through the day. You cant avoid the fact that one compliment automatically boosts you onside, so why not attract more. Dress up good always.

NO STRESS

Don’t stress more about work. It is just a part of your life, it is not your entire life. The mess at work happens, but don’t bring it home. Leave it on your office desk. It is inevitable, and it will come back again, so you need not ruin your life after it. Always remember if you get any kind of physical/mental disability, your office won’t entertain you more. So, stay healthy mentally.

MEDITATE

Take 5 minutes from your busy calendar every day and make a practice to meditate. Trust me it is important. Do you ever miss to take a bath? No right, similarly it is important to take a mind bath, clean unwanted thoughts and only keep the required material. Make it practice.

VENT IT OUT

Whenever you are in a problem, talk it out. Don’t carry grumpy baggage inside your brain. It will only ruin your positive vibes and make people hate you more. Talk to some trustworthy person, or else write it down, it is easy and remains secret. I am sure days after when you will read it back you will realize how did you fought with the situation and managed to survive, and to be honest it only ads to motivation.

I am sure these things will help you in daily life. Share more and more with your friends and I would be pleased to have your feedback and experiences with regard to this. I am sure together we can help each other.

that Birthday Cake..

Some frequent discussion among a group of friends, all sloshed by wine and women. She was constantly looking at the phone. While she was present among the crowd, but all her attention was on her phone and the door. It was 11:55. In 5 mins she was turning 27. Her fourth birthday with him, but without him. He will surprise her with a cake in hand, he will come to meet her, thoughts floating in twisted nerves. He was her best friend, her love, he will plan something great to surprise her.

Friends were still in their own stories, some listening, some laughing and some drooled in their own company. She was four drinks down, but she cannot sleep. What if she misses his call? Suddenly there were voices from the crowd, happy birthday lady. Cheers!. The doorbell did not ring, there was no surprise cake. Wait, he could be late, her heart was still consoling. There were so many around, that she was alone. She could not collect herself, she was broke inside. PHONE… He will call her. She waited for him to call, he did not. He will call me, she knew. He never does that. 15 mins passed.

The moment did not let her rest, but she was straining to hold her tears which wanted to roll down to her dimpled chin. 20 mins passed. That was a sudden gathering, nobody actually arranged for a cake. There was no cake. She had to celebrate it like that, she felt bad. She wanted to cry. She felt down, depressed. “He forgot my birthday” she sulked. 25 mins passed away.

Everyone back in the mode, suddenly the phone rang: “Happy Birthday Honey! and she contended. This is what she wanted to hear. This is what makes this birthday grand for her. No cakes, no bouquet, no gifts, but she was so happy.

“I know you will call, but this late..?”

“ just slipped of my mind, i placed an alarm but it did not ring” he replied.

“When it’s your birthday, I know, since a week. And you need an alarm to remember mine.” she frowned. She felt bad again.

“I have to take my flight. Goodbye”

They disconnected.
Six Months Gone….
She feels like a substance, mortal yet dead. and Now they say that she is sick, she should get well soon. Irony!

Yes I am Stuck

Yes I am Stuck
Stuck to the warmth of his hands holding me when I was broke..
Stuck in those glinting eyes when I look at him and smile..
Stuck to that melt when he hugged me last before he left..
Stuck to those lazy late nights when he talks to me to sleep..
Stuck to all those random trips which I never planned but happened..
Stuck to the bench in the park when my hands would rasp by his hair and he would talk endlessly..

Stuck to that hairline getting grey I would see when he comes close to peck me..
Stuck to those rolling tears when he never turned up..
Stuck somewhere in my heart and couldn’t stop loving him..
Yes, I am stuck ….
He is that smile on my face, and I am stuck there..
Stuck one step before I could see there is a world beyond him..
