Everything I have gone through I could not have done without the love, faith, and support of my family. Even though i stay away from home since i was 16, just being around them once in a year or two brings me joy and I forget about any problem or fear I have. They accept me with all of my flaws. And I accept them as well, no matter what.
Soak up the love of your family today & everyday. Be grateful for the goodness you receive. Love them for everything they are and aren’t. Family gives us strength and builds our character. (Not my words.)
Often when we’re comforting loved ones, all that we want to do is take their pain away. It’s such a natural desire to help those we love in need. But there are many times when it is necessary for people to go through pain to fully learn and emerge stronger than ever. Remember not to enable someone who needs help with a problem. Support them in finding a solution.
The next time a loved one is going through a difficult period, think about how you can support them instead of fixing them. You can’t resolve other people’s issues, but you can sit with them and share the burden of their pain, thereby lightening it. (Not my words.)
A best friend is someone you can count on wholeheartedly. Someone who you can trust to tell your deepest and darkest secrets to, and not have a worry in the world that a rumor will spread throughout the town. A best friend is someone who supports your every decision even if they may not always agree with it. A best friend is someone who is honest enough to tell you the truth, but loyal enough to remain by your side. A best friend is chosen family. Someone who can get on your nerves, but at the end of the day you know who really has your back and your best interest at heart.
A best friend is knowing that out of all the human beings in the world, you two choose each other.
Next few lines are for my university mates who always question my equation & my snapchat stories with my bestfriend DEMI, just because i am one happy happening sweet gentle naughty TAP. OK little bit grumpy as well sometimes. So, did DEMI ask me to make 2 babies with her for the 958th time when she was little drunk? Answer is; Yes. Did i push her in winter wonderland ice bar right after that question? Answer is; Yes ofcourse. If i get a chance, i will do that again & again every single day. DEMI, SORRY MY BESTIE BITCH. YOU KNOW I HATE YOU FR.😘😜😂
One of my favourite feelings is laughing with someone and realizing half way trough how much you enjoy them and their existence.
Things are expected of you of your whole life, you are expected to make career, that you score well and have achieved a certain status. But life is not about status and work. These are extras.
What matters is that you can develop as a person. That you simply learn, discover and enjoy your journey. So instead of worrying about the numbers and status, you have to enjoy the journey and the small moments that can mean so much more.
I don’t want to be around people anymore that judge or talk about what people do. I want to be around people that do things. I want to be around people who believe in slow & steady progress. I want to be with people who gradually grow a rich character and a bank account. I want to be around people who remain consistent with their words, approach, intentions & journey of life. I want to be around people that dream and support and do things.
Supportive people bond long-term with growth mindset. Oppertunist comes to score petty short-term goals, it takes time but you will get rid of them today or tomorrow. (Not my words.)
In this generation it is almost exceptional that we look after each other and stand up for each other. There is competition and power struggles everywhere, but why? We could achieve so much more together if we support, respect and appreciate each other. I don’t compete with anyone, I am myself, I have different goals, norms and values, I am unique, just like you are, and for that we are not competitors but equals.
Jealousy, competition and grudging are therefore hugely misguided, it is impossible to compare yourself to another. The only thing you can do is look at yourself, develop yourself, compete with yourself and become your own ideal image. There is no room for jealousy, grudging and hatred, as this will always negatively affect your self development and self-image.
Focus on your own goals and work on yourself. Respect that you will never be like others and they will never be like you. Don’t change for anyone. Change for yourself. You are your own and only competition.
DISCIPLINE IS ABOUT MAKING CHOICE AFTER CHOICE CONSISTENTLY THAT’S ALIGNED WITH OUR INTENTIONS.
IN ANY MOMENT, WE CAN MAKE A CHOICE THAT SUPPORTS AN INTENTION. OR WE CAN MAKE A CHOICE THAT SUPPORTS AN OLD HABIT, A LACK OF INTENTION OR A FEAR.
ATTITUDE, HAPPINESS, OPTIMISM, KINDNESS, GIVING, RESPECT, GROWTH, LOYALTY, TRUTHFUL COMMUNICATION, WHATEVER CHOICE YOU MAKE, MAKES YOU.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. If you are watching from USA, watch it for investment tips. If you are watching from any other part of the world, watch it for some general knowledge on money. I am a big fan ot Kevin O’Leary. I saw him giving a 100 score to someone for the first time, that too to an Indian guy. My blood goes back to eastern part of India. Parents are next to god in our culture. And nothing comes above family values & money management skills.)
Your impact on other people is bigger than you think. Someone still giggles when they think of that funny thing you said. Someone still smiles when they think of the compliment you gave them. Someone silently admires you. The advice you give has made a difference for people. The support and love you’ve offered others has made someone’s day. Your input and opinions have made someone think twice. You’re not insignificant and forgotten. Your existence makes a positive difference, whether you see it or not. You just have to remain truthful & consistent with the way you are. You are unique & beautiful. Be you.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. It’s talking about obesity problem in USA. 2 out of every 3 US citizens are either overweight or obese, 1 is obese. And last 1 left is in tiktok i guess.😂 I am not surprised actually. If you eat Egg Mcmuffin & french fries with starbucks coffee for breakfast, what else do you expect! People drive miles to buy crappy fastfood & gain weight, then they talk about pollution & body positivity. Sadly this trend is slowly spreading in UK & Europe, but i am also happy that so many of those american fastfood chains aren’t present here so far. I can talk about life in Cardiff & Berlin, very few people prefer to eat out often. Even if they want to, at least we have an option to choose a full monty english breakfast/doner kebab/vegan avocado toast & natty acai bowl with enough lean meat/eggs/mushroom/vegetables/nuts/oats/berries/fruits at an affordable price. No offence to anyone reading from USA. I have cousins & friends in Cali, i tease them about being fat or fab everyday.😜)
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.
No one else can possibly know what kinda power you’ve got going on inside you. What kinda potential, life-force, and creative ability you contain. Only you know the beginning and end of that. And even if you tell anyone about your dreams, and they nod their head, like, “Yes, yes, maybe that’s meant to be”, they should never need to be convinced that you will reach those dreams. Because your dreams are not theirs. Let go of their opinion. Let go of their judgement. Let go of their support, even if it is coming from the most loving place. Let it go. Because it’s not for them to know, this thing that you are dreaming.
You know where you’re going. You know what you are capable of. There is no need to prove this or explain this or articulate this to anyone else. It is entirely up to you. And you need all the space within you to be free for new realities. Make sure you’ve cleared that space. Make sure nothing else is influencing that space. Make sure that this dream is all and only you. BUILD YOURSELF LIKE YOU DREAM.
