Through My Eyes - Author Unknown You are beautiful Although, you may not see the person that I see when I look at you And if the mirror you look into could show your reflection through my eyes you would see a smile so bright it could light up the world throughout the day and into the night You are courageous Although, you may not feel all that brave But I see, how strong you can be And if you could take a minute to look back at all your ups and downs you would smile with pride because you made it through And then you would be believe what I already know to be true You are incredible, intelligent fearless and strong. Life is beautiful, wonderful and fun and all your dreams can come true if you start by believing in you.
Be Happy. God Bless.

Take Responsibility of Your Own Self


Take responsibility
 for your own happiness, do not expect people or things to bring you happiness, or you could be disappointed. – Rodolfo Costa
.
Many of you had gone through
this quote but do you know what is this all about taking responsibility of your own self. May be like me many of you are in the foggy misty confusion that the words are powerful but how to live this words.  We all are taught in schools  how to read, write so that we fit well in the material world. Our parents teach us  how to behave in a proper manner  and become a person whom society  will look up with respect and honor , on the whole we are taught how to be responsible to do something  but in this whole process  none teaches  us that it is also a responsibility to be someone… like  to be happy, to be lovefull , to be peaceful ….this is self responsibility.
Every other person was sending the messages that we will be granted as a responsible person when we do a task or a job well and bring desired  expected result.  For example parents think we are responsible when we bring good grade in exams, boss will think that we are responsible if we meet the deadline  in time , spouse think we are responsible when every need of their is fulfilled unquestioned and the list of responsibility goes on and we rub our self hard to meet every need with a smile so that we don’t loose the tag of responsible from our character criteria list.
In this whole journey we all miss the self. Responsibility became a prominent word which cover our outer self and in this journey our own self energy get depleted, we became very responsible person  whom other love to look on but empty inside.
Who don’t love praise surely it boost our self esteem and we feel great  no doubt but  do this happiness last. It stays for a moment and then we are given another responsibility and we run after that so that  our parameter  stays on a right lane.  It is to look a situation from outside in. When you do a job people praise and you feel happy . Let’s try the other way round inside out. Take the responsibility to be happy inside , to be loving and to be peaceful inside and then do the job outside how fun it will be.
Till now the thought process is when I do something well people will praise and then I will feel happy.  So your happiness is literally on other’s hand. Now shift your thought take the responsibility of your own happiness. Be responsible for your own inner self. Connect with the positive happy energy of your won self and then do the work  given. As we all know work done with positive energy always yield more superior result . So now you are happy and doing the work and not doing it for happiness.  Praise or critics will not effect your state of happiness and you will remain in the state of positive vibes all the day through.
 We are all human being not human doing.  May be we are very responsible in our doing and meet all the material need in the outer world but if our  being is not nourished and nurtured well  and is not stable then  the  vibrational energy that we are emitting from our self  are not  that of happiness, love  and peace  , remember at the end neither you will be happy nor others  around.  May be you will be gifted with the garland of superficial words from outer world  but in times a void will be created and you will be unable to figure out that what went wrong that you being so responsible in all your doings still feeling empty and restless.
 Now it’s time to make your being , your inner self stable. Your emotional dimension is at the core ..suppose when you are happy everything around will seems happy, when you feel love you could handle the worst of the situation with ease.  It’s time to look inward  and connect with your core values that is  love , happiness and peace. Self  responsibility means that my response is my ability to response.  I am the self creator  responsible for all my decisions, thoughts , belief , perception and action. Outward situations will come you can’t control that but what  we can control is our inner thoughts and how to respond in that situation. Inner stability is our choice. From now on when you make your responsibility list  put self  on the top. Once your connection with your inner self is stable all other responsibility will automatically fall in places.
 A little exercise affirm “ I am the creator of my every though, belief, perception, attitude and action.”  Accept it and consciously note how many time you are reacting to a situation and blaming others even you know you can’t change the situation .Suppose you are stuck in a huge traffic jam on your important meeting.  You start complaining  though you know you can’t change the situation then why to grudge and grumble instead relax, be happy  and enjoy the me time with a happy music or any creative thought  or send good vibes to others , it don’t need a penny but it all need a shift of your attitude towards the situation. Stay connected with your core values that is happiness, love and peace and consciously take care that situation don't over power and snatch all your inner gift . It will not happen in one day but start practicing and consciously keep eye on to your inner world  you will definitely be successful. Keep trying, keep focusing and moving with a positive feeling inside out.
Hope from now on you will not look for happiness , love or peace. Your inner self will be filled with  all your inner gift and and you will  be a generous giver of happiness,  peace and love which when flow back to you again will drenched you  and your  life will be a memorable journey  to live on.

This above write up is inspired from BK Sister Shivani’s teaching on self management. Thanks a ton for Sister  for making life peacefully beautiful.

Simple Steps to Take Right Decision


Every now and then in life we are in midst of a road where we need to take decision. Sometimes the decisions are major life changing and sometimes they are minor simple day to day decisions  that keep life moving.  Even  when we take minor decisions it may seem minor for us but life changing for others  in positive or negative ways. Again every decision of ours fill our Karma account with good and  bad deeds that are outcomes of those decisions. So decisions are always important factors of life. 
Major decisions are may be that whether  you after finishing your high school go for a law major or join fine arts that’s what your heart desire. Minor decision is when your are under peer pressure to smoke or to drink whether to say yes or no. Remember every action yields it’s result  so you should know how to take right decision on right time . Here sharing with you an insightful way to take right decision rightly so that in the long run you will be peaceful happy and enjoying life without guilt or shame. 

1. As we all know we are all spirits living in this human body. There are few qualities of spirit that is love truth, happiness and peace. While taking decision attune to  your  higher self and make sure that the decisions that you are taking is based on the principal of truth, love , happiness and peace. Suppose your parents want you take law as your future prospect but you think that joining fine arts you can be true to your self and to others, it’s what you love and you will be happily showing your creation to the world which will bring peace to your life journey. It is very important to be calm and clear to your self  stay tuned with your inner core values and then decide rather than getting influenced by others, take a decision which either you regret at the end or will be a heavy baggage to walk with, which will drain you up and soak all your positivity towards life and  you will be just breathing and not living. So make sure you take the right decision tuned to your core soul values and in times every well wisher and your dear ones will be happy to see you prosper both inside out.

2. If you done said or thought  something which bring you near to your  inner core values of truth, love happiness and peace it’s right and if something  which take you  away from your  inner core values then you are  surely wrong. Any decision of yours that will bring shame and guilt and don’t let you sleep at night or bring the slightest bit of discomfort and lower your self esteem means you haven’t taken the right decision. For every right decision taken the gifts  are  peace happiness and immense good feeling and it means you walk tall without  any fear what soever because you are nourished by your higher self in the path of righteousness.

3. Check whether your decision make you happy and other’s happy not in the moment but in long term too.

Happiness In Simplicity

                                                     image source: http://img3.rnkr-static.com/
I asked the professors who teach the meaning of life to tell 
me what is happiness. 
And I went to famous executives who boss the work of 
thousands of men. 
They all shook their heads and gave me a smile as though 
I was trying to fool with them 
And then one Sunday afternoon I wandered out along 
the Desplaines river 
And I saw a crowd of Hungarians under the trees with 
their women and children and a keg of beer and an 
accordion.  - Carl Sandburg
True happiness is in all those little things that life gift us in a blink of our eyes. To dance, clap hands, exult, shout, skip, leap, roll on, float on can make life a poem of new happiness. Happiness to me is all those tiny moments of sharing and caring. To be refreshed by the morning walk or an evening saunter spending some time with the morning birds and the street dogs. Sharing a chunk of bread or few biscuits and to see them wagging tails with words unspoken, yes they love. A cricket match with family shouting at every boundaries….cheering for home team and a bottle of Coke and popcorn to share are simplest forms of happiness. A long drive with a friend and then a watching a blockbuster movie giggling and laughing together, that’s happiness.
 I am real foodie and love to make innovative recipes with food and drink. It bring immense happiness when I share my innovative yummy delicious recipes not only with my family and friends but went out and share with the homeless or the street kids. It’s really a true pleasure to see those eyes sparkles with happiness when they see good food and drink in front of them. Once learnt and experience in my own life truth of this words “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” I find true happiness in giving.... whether feeding a hungry with delicious food ... a thirsty with a glass of drink ...  some good words of praise and happiness that will motivate and inspire and brighten a gloomy day of someone with a ray of hope. Sometimes people around don’t need any tangible good to feel the vibes of wellness but only some caring and loving words that can just make them feel good and move on in life with a smile. So even it’s a simple Happy Birthday to an unknown Facebook friend from a far land, I never miss to type that on their wall. I know it well that I will never meet them in person in this life time but just when I think that may be with my words I can sprinkle little color in their life canvas, my heart fills with an unknown pleasure and a pure smile lighten up my face. Life is nothing but pearls of moments beautifully tied together in the silk thread of time….let’s choose happiness.

 This post is part of Coca-Cola International Day of Happiness. To Coca-Cola, happiness is anything that brings a smile to your face! It's about adding a dose of refreshment, brightness & cheer to the lives of people who love it.

Be Happy. God Bless.
