You just have to start with yourself.
You just have to start with yourself.
The world has taught us that we are living in an age of depression.
What if we believed that we are living in an age of peace?
What if we believed that everyone wants us to win?
What if we believed that life is very beautiful if we are beautiful?
Babe, life is beautiful.
Embrace it. Enjoy it. Create it.
On that book
On your dream
On your fitness goal
On your ritual to take a daily evening walk
On your weirdest weirdo thought that you know only you can bring to light.
The biggest thing you will learn to give up in life, is to give up on giving up on the opinions of others.
If you don’t want your boss to call you on a weekend, have a separate phone for personal life.
If you don’t want to make the same mistake every day, change your systems instead of cursing yourself.
If you don’t want to fall in bad relationships over and over again, seek therapy to weed off the problem from the root.
Make the change. It is your life. You own it to yourself.
There is no other way than to write daily.
There is no other way than to show up for practice daily.
There is no other way to feeling peaceful than to meditate daily.
There is no other way to health and fitness than to get your workout, food and sleep in order.
There is no other way to good relationships than to forgive those who don’t even know they made a mistake.
There is no other way to feeling fulfilled than to attending to yourself first.
There is no other way to validation than to spend time with yourself, talking to yourself.
There is no other way to an empty head than to venting out everything on a journal.
There is no other way to success than to have a relentless pursuit of the daily essentials.
Because it is in the mundane that the fun we gain.
If jazzy and snazzy brought results, Warren Buffet, Ratan Tata and your favourite person would not be where you are today.
A colleague in our team resigned from work today.
She stated she isn’t having enough time to pursue her freelancing, along with the work that we offer her.
Totally respect her sentiment.
And her audacity to speak her truth out.
Very few people would actually do it.
However, on some days I see a lot of myself in her.
I also want to run away from things when they are not working out.
I also want to run away from problematic relationships (both professional and personal) at times.
I also want to run away from everything I am doing to start afresh, with fresh set of perspectives and people.
What we forget, however, is that wherever we go, we take ourselves with us.
You may run away from people.
You may run away from circumstances.
You may also run away from the pressure someone else put you through.
However, how will you ever run away from yourself?
The part of you that does not feel okay with the thing it is running away from.
The habits of people that trigger something in you.
The issues your behaviour exhibits when it comes in contact with something that is unpleasant to you.
This in no way means that you should continue working on and working with what is not working out.
However, what this surely means is when something is not working out in the outer world, there is certainly something within us as well that needs to be fixed. We move on from the toxic people and places however hardly sit around to get rid of our own toxicity as well.
Thus, it is important for us to reflect that in ourselves as well.
Otherwise, we would be like that single person who just moved on from a toxic relationship, only to land themselves into another one – because they did not fix the part of themselves that fell into that toxic relationship in the first place.
I had been struggling with a problem for quite some time now.
Yesterday as I went out with a friend, I forgot that problem for a while.
And then in came to me again.
Which is how it should be.
You gotta deal with your pain.
And resolve your issues.
So that it goes away.
Most of us just try to numb it by doing more things that are external.
We go out. Eat out. Party hard. Post on Instagram.
Basically put as many bandages without healing the wound.
However, not attending to the wound is only going to make it worse.
We may go out into the world, however, if we are not going within our world, we are merely puppets of our own trauma, instead of being masters of our emotions.
But the only person you go to bed with, is you. Not the glitz and glam. Not the insta likes and insta stories. And certainly not the external bandages you choose.
If you don’t deal with pain, it eventually becomes a choice.
Someone responded to me in 10 seconds teaching how to respond to heated messages 2 hours later.
It turns out, people who give wisdom yet not apply it carry wisdom. If we listen to the message, it will make us way more powerful.
That’s it. That’s the blog.
IDK why I wrote this title, lol 🙂
Anyway, I am doing good, hope the same for you.
An FYI, btw: Take care of yourself, everything else shall follow.
