Your Life Is Your Message To The World

Your Life Is Your Message To The World!


 Introspecting on various events in my life, brought me to an awakening moment! Simple yet so important in everyone's life, but we barely pay attention to it. Yes what I am trying to say is boldly projected in the image above - "Your Life is Your Message to the World. Make Sure it's Inspiring". 

How many times in your life have you taken some time out not only for yourself, but but as a moment of Introspection into your own life to see, what is what! It's like reading a "Who's - Who" of your own life and events in your life. The layman or the common man had little time for this as we are so held up and tied up with out daily commitments, run-of-the-mill jobs, "family responsibilities" as we so tag them with; that we rarely have time to introspect! Yes the world "Introspection" has a deep rooted meaning and connection with how your life shapes up! But we rarely do it!


As is rightly mentioned in this Image - "Introspection" is basically "the journey to myself and away from it" ! Such a sublime yet strong way of expressing its true meaning. 

My post today is related to simple events and occurrences in my presence on my various Social Media Platforms which I introspected, reviewed and applied to my life to make it better. Hope you too can do it!

We often overlook small comments, suggestions or even taunts given by others, whoever it may be as looking at them from an angle of despite and anger for someone who we always feel is out to get at you. Let us now change the approach to this view and look at is as a genuine hint at trying to convey to you a much stronger message for your own good. Look at those messages as something to do better to your life and you will see a whole new world opening to you and to others. 

I say this not only out of personal experience, but with conviction, as I can proudly say that if today I project an Image of myself as what people look at me , I am proud of it. Yes there is always a lot of room for perfection as no one is ever perfect, but I get that deep satisfaction that "Yes I can be and am looked upon as someone reliable, trustworthy, compassionate, knowledgeable, caring, and the very humble person that I am today". And what better can I say than thank all of you for making me what I am, because it was my serious introspection of every comment, like, suggestion, and messages that I have kept receiving in life from so many of my friends, fans, relatives either personally or through my vast social media presence and writing on the Internet that has brought about a change for the better! 


Many a times, we neglect small comments from others. As mentioned above not all critics are haters. They also have something to say to help you. Proud to say that my biggest critic as well as well wisher is my daughter Mansi, who from time to time keeps pulling me down for constantly liking, commenting and posting on my various social media platforms. She means good most of the times but many times I need to explain to her my reason for doing this and she immediately or most of the times agrees to it when she sees reason. The same holds good for all those wonderful friends, fans and relatives who keep commenting, and messaging me with so many inputs. 

The bottom line or key discussion for this post was try to be what you are truthfully. Don't create a Pseudo Personality - one yourself and one for others as a public image. That can be harmful not only to you yourself but to others as well. There is no harm in being who you are, in fact be proud of whatever you are as far as it does not affect the society badly that is! All you need to do is control your Attitude!


What you write, comment, share on your social profiles speaks a lot about your thinking, your culture, your upbringing and your respect for others and their feelings too. You may have an opinion and share it but never force it on someone. 

I have myself many times lost my hold on my feelings and posted very personal comments and posts which immediately related with those close to me and they messaged me to find out what was wrong. It only goes to show how much they actually care for you and are concerned about you. Never take social media lightly. It is a very powerful media which can bring about a revolution if you want to and do it in the right way. 

Posting events from your personal life may be viewed by many as inappropriate. Rightly so, but if those same incidents can bring about a change in someones life they will benefit from it. Yes it takes a lot of courage and confidence in yourself to speak out about your personal life, but then if you can justify every word or event being standing up only to let people know what you have gone through, and how you dealt with it, it could strike a chord with someone who is going through a similar situation, and may help them. Some may find this unnecessary , but as long as you are not being a crybaby and just posting for some attention I feel it is ok. Most important is never post or comment when you are in a Bad Mood, cool down, relax, come to your normal state and then think before you comment!
 
 
Posting Articles or comments that arouse secular or community based biased leads, can be very harmful. Respect every community, every religion, every country for what it stands as each is going through their own stages of good, bad or turmoil. Share their happiness, be with them in their bad times and feel for them in their moment of turmoil. That will only make this world a better place to live in. 

Having been a member of Various Social Media platforms I have come to realize that the power of Social Media as I mentioned above is very strong so use it in a way which will not only create a good respectable image of yourself but also get to know like minded people who could make a difference in a good way. Groups and Chats can spread the good news around very soon as much as the bad, but a bad post reaches out faster, so be careful what you post and present.

 
Ok friends, just sending out a last message, Be proud of yourself and make your life worth looking forward to, God Bless!

My "Yo-Bro" Friend - My Daughter!

My "Yo-Bro" Friend - My Daughter!

 Daughters have always been Fathers closest and most loved friends. This relation can never be diluted in any way! From the very moment she is born she is very special. She shares a very close and ethereal bond with her father. Not that the love between Mother and daughter is any less, but the Father-Daughter bond has always stood out strong and lasting. 

In what better words can I describe my own daughter like all daughters are to their father, than in the words in this picture I am sharing with you below. 




 This bond grows as the child grows and becomes strongest when she comes into her teens. She is on the look out for a friend, confidante, trustworthy partner and a shoulder to lean on whenever she needs it. And what better person than her father to fit that spot. 

As mentioned above it is a very touching and blessed relationship that cannot be described in words. No matter what age you are your daughter has always made you laugh, made you proud, made you cry, hugged you tight, seen you fail, cheered you up when you were low, kept you on your toes, and even driven you crazy at times with her unique mannerisms which you love so much. She becomes and remains your friend forever!

As we care and support for our daughters they have always been known to reciprocate in the same way and even more than what was normally expected of sons. The Gender bias issue stands large and looming today! But daughters have always proved them all wrong!
As she grows, she may grow by size and may not fit in your arms as she did so cozily when she was a child. Those moments will always remain a memory, but she will never outgrow your heart!

Today as I look back with foggy eyes at memories of yesterday it dawns on me that I have a friend for life. It also brings a chill in my spine in saying that today I'd be lost without my daughter!

 And when your daughter feels as proud about you and is so vocal about it, not only in words but in actions it gives your immense pride and a warm heart. 
 Your heart swells with pride when she mentions your cherished relationship to her friends and companions, and offers her help and mine as well to be friends with them as I have become with her. This maturity makes you feel so touched, and your mind goes off on a roller coaster ride all the way back when she was a toddler! 

All I have to say today to all fathers and parents in general. Do not discriminate between your children and create sibling rivalry. They are your own blood and body. Love them as your own, teach them respect for one another and see how your life will blossom! 

Today when my daughter says "Yo-Bro" when she approves of something I accept or is in line with her own thoughts it brings tears to my eyes, because I am so proud I have fulfilled her trust not only as a father but as a friend who she can feel totally in freedom to share whatever she feels.


I pray to God that this relationship  between a Father and Daughter remains and grows, and also that all of you have a wonderful family life, where you are all friend for life!

Take care, God Bless! 

LIVING LIFE - LIFE'S WAY

"LIVING LIFE - LIFE'S WAY"

You don't need a Five Star Monarch Cruise to enjoy life and feel its magnanimity. Life has the most fantastic Package Cruise for you all ready, but we fail to realize and partake of this wonderful gift.

All you have to do is let your feelings open up, share them in earnest with the ones close to you, friends, family, needy, and Life will open up the biggest Free Package Deal for you.


Life is Feeling for others happiness and joy!

Enjoying Life does not necessarily mean only with your Wife, or children. There is more to life. Spend some wonderful moments with your friends close or far. Reach out to a disturbed mind. Extend your hand to the Old and needy. Bring a smile on their face by spending some quality time with them. THAT - is life! And Life is Love. 


It is unfortunate that we that we have in our Society set the definition of "Love" is a very selfish way. Love has its own nuances and only one who feels, expresses and understands these nuances and shares them with respect, trust and selflessness will understand the true meaning of Love and LIfe.

In today's fickle minded world if you were to just say "Take Care, Love You" to a friend you will find tongues wagging and lashing out the choicest comments and expletives, and even whispering into your spouses ear every possible tag line that would make love shudder! We never have understood the true meaning of "Love", and immediately link it to a physical relationship or personal gratification. Little are we bothered or realize that you can share and cherish the best of loving relationships with a good friend, without ever hurting or compromising the trust and respect for your own personal relationship with your spouse which in fact is so pure, blessed, and godly. You could mean so much to the other person or someone may want to be a close part of your life as a good friend, without hurting your own life, and they hold on to that feeling for life, living a life of hapless disappointment and feeling unfulfilled. 



Yes you would have to have total control over your own feelings, but if your trust and understanding with your partner and spouse is so strong that it transcends all   boundaries of mere feelings, you could truly make a big difference in the world to so many others who crave for love and a happier life. A simple hug, a kind word, a consoling kiss on the forehead are like life to a person whose life may have gone through trauma. There are so many who are in need of selfless and pure love, but due to a few selfish, fickle-minded and corrupt minded people who derive sadistic happiness in hurting others, even at the cost of personal gratification and insult to the other, shed a shadow of doubt and create a pseudo perspective in the minds of others.

You have to differentiate between fantasy and reality. Life brings to you every phase of love and happiness. You have to be mature enough to realize the nuances in each stage. 

As we cross each stage in life from a child to an adult the meaning and feeling of the word "Love" changes so drastically, but few of us realize it. The love and care for your child is at its purest when a child is born in the family. Children are closest to God. Our care and concern for them until they grow up knows no bounds. But as they grow we trust them and yet love them to stand up on their own feet and taste the meaning of love themselves.

The meaning of Love for the same child as they grow goes through different phases as they cross their teens, grow up to be adults and phase out into the elderly phase of life keeps changing. We have to accept those fine changes at their respective stages and respect them too. It is understanding and making your children and family members aware of, and make them respect these stages that this same life gives you Happiness! If you flow against this trend, life will create disturbances which become difficult to handle. These are created by us and not life. Life has only Happiness to offer. How you accept each stage and take full advantage of this package is your own perspective to life!

Accept life as it comes in every stage, understand and feel the nuances of the various feelings and offerings by Life. Learn to respect each stage for what it stands, and you will be surprised that Life offers you the best of the best! It is for you to accept or leave it. 

So make the Best of Life and the only way you can do it is - " LIVING LIFE - LIFE'S WAY".

Take care, Be Happy, Be Blessed, God Bless!
