Be the reason why people believe in pure hearts, good vibes and kind souls.
When it is time for something new, you will feel it.
You will feel a desire to let go, to shed layers, to move, to re-create.
You will know because there will be subtle shifts all around you.
You will release the old because you are really clearing the path for what’s ahead.
Trust this process.
Know that life does not take from us anything unless there is something else awaiting its replacement.
Understand & value the importance of subtle shifts.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I found it fun to watch, so it’s a fun to share. I didn’t know there’s a foster banana liquor. Now my travel diaries include one more place in 2022. I like trying such recipies even know i am not a big fan of alcohol.)
You made that choice to improve for a reason.
Don’t go backwards to habits and situations that weren’t helping you evolve.
You have to keep reminding yourself why you even decided to move forward.
Whatever gifts you’ve been blessed with, use them to make the world a better place.
Nobody else has what you have so apply your thoughts and ideas to help change the world.
You never know how you can impact this world unless you believe in yourself and try to make a difference.
Take the causes you feel strongest about and do something to help or benefit them.
You are here for a reason.
Use your gifts.
Stop overthinking and replaying episodes from your past you are not happy about.
Realize that everything happens for a reason.
It served its purpose.
It made you better.
Only through experience we can truly feel and understand the contrast of what is good and what is not, what we want and what we don’t want.
Experiences teaches us most valuable lessons.
It helps us grow, love ourselves and have empathy towards others.
Be grateful for your experiences, but move forward.
Embrace the new & remain consistent in your walk of life. (Not my words.)
Most people are just INCONSISTENT, pretend to do lot many things without being serious about anything.
TRUSTING SOMEONE IS THE TOUGHEST PART.
And there are two reasons why we don’t TRUST people.
First: We don’t know them.
Second: We know them.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I heard about mincemeat oat cookies for the first time from this Scottish chef. I am a baker by heart, especially pizza & cheesecake are two of my biggest weaknesses.)
People never understand “what you want to do” is always connected to “what you need to do”.
Suppose i want to be an engineer, i need to study engineering.
Suppose i want to a writer/musician/athlete, i need to learn & practice writing/music/sports.
Suppose i want to get fit, i need to workout.
What you want to do doesn’t make any sense till you aren’t following what you need to do first.
This is the major reason most people stay unhappy & blame others for their failures.
This one tiny mindset change can drastically evolve your life in a year.
NEEDS FIRST, WANTS NEXT.
(This movie trailer got nothing to do with the post above. My first real full-time job was software developer before i switched to data analytics field. I know where we are heading with time, our world isn’t going bad as this trailer shows. But the way technology is advancing, who knows what’s coming after hundred years!! Anyways, there are no boundaries for imagination.)
Pay more attention to what stirs your heart.
Pay attention to the music that makes you want to cry, or dance, or jump right out of your skin.
Pay attention to what makes you happy truly happy,
the kind of happy that drips from your bones,
the kind of happy that gives you hope,
and makes you believe that you have a reason to be here.
Pay attention to the things that make you laugh, the things that make you smile.
Really focus on figuring out what compels you.
Really focus on discovering the aspects of the world that interest you and challenge you and make you want to learn and grow.
You have to pay attention,
To the things that make you believe in being alive.
To the people that support you and build you up and make you feel like you’re understood in a world that can sometimes feel like a haunted and hurtful place.
You have to pay attention to the life you want to create for yourself.
Because you are in charge of your own happiness.
You are in charge of who you become.
So, if something makes your soul feel like it is finally home, pay attention to it.
Whether it is a job, or an idea, or a goal, or a person, or a place, just follow what makes you feel alive.
Just make your life your own.
Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.
