There comes a very important time in your life where you need to sit yourself down and ask;
“If you’re really living your life!
Are you content or are you happy?
Are you seeing or living?”

You only have one shot at this.
Travel great distances if that’s what you please.
Or stay at home and build a beautiful garden is that’s where you see yourself happiest.
If you aren’t happy, then change.
Analyze your life and get rid of anything that doesn’t make you happy.
One day when you’re eighty years old, you’re going to wish you did.
You’re going to wish you lived differently and there’s no way to go back and change it.
LIVE YOUR ALL DREAMS, GOALS, DESIRES WHILE BEING THE MOST AUTHENTIC VERSION OF YOURSELF.

SUCCESS IS OVERRATED!!

When we say “STRIVE TO BE SUCCESSFUL”, we must mention SUCCESS in what form!
In my eyes SUCCESS is an amazing form of accomplishment & it can be anything.

You are a good student, that’s a SUCCESS.
You are a good employee who loves & enjoys his/her job, that’s SUCCESS.
You are an entrepreneur or a businessman to a profitable venture, that’s a SUCCESS.
You lost 10kilo body weight in a month for shooting a music video, that’s SUCCESS.
You travelled 41 countries before turning 29, that’s SUCCESS.
You are truthful about what you are, that’s SUCCESS.
You never showed deceptive or inconsistent characteristics, that’s SUCCESS.
You are confident & consistent, that’s SUCCESS.
You never allowed bad times or bad people bring down your vibe, that’s SUCCESS.
You were patient with time to get what you wanted, that’s SUCCESS.
You baked the best sourdough pizza & sugarfree cheesecake for all your 17 friends, that’s a SUCCESS.
You know your bestfriend DEMI is a crybaby & despite that you had a long conversation about all your differences in opinion while grabbing her by waist, even that’s a SUCCESS.

SUCCESS is such a wildly overrated word that makes most people scared to even think about it.
We must use this word “SUCCESS” in our day to day life to feel more fulfilled in our way of living.

AS LONG AS YOU KEEP GOING,
YOU’LL KEEP GETTING BETTER.
AND AS YOU GET BETTER,
YOU GAIN MORE CONFIDENCE.
THAT ALONE IS SUCCESS. (Not my words.)

Consistent effort with clean intentions always leads to SUCCESS.

Listen to yourself.
If your gut feeling is telling you to distance yourself from certain people and get closer to those who have a positive aura to them, do it.
If your heart is telling you to travel,
change that job,
start this project,
spend more time in nature,
take a break,
read that book,
be with that specific person, just go for it.
Your higher self knows what’s best for you.
So please don’t ignore the messages.

BE YOU FEARLESSLY.

We’re never doomed because we’re being reborn each day and life is filled with new opportunities.
You have the freedom to wake up one day and decide to travel the world, change career paths, or reach out to a friend you haven’t spoken to in years.
Every day is filled with new ideas and possibilities.

Do something unexpected and out of character today.
Free yourself.

Each morning, we are born again.
What we do today is what matters most.

I’m a firm believer in leaving this world a better place for future generations.
Being an optimistic person has presented me with so many extraordinary opportunities to give back, to volunteer, and to touch so many lives along the way.
I’ve had the privilege of advocating for those dealing with bullying, eating disorders, and mental health issues.
Everyone has causes close to their hearts, so whatever you’re passionate about, do something to make a difference.
Do your part to make this world a better place.

I have been through enough ups & downs in my close to 30 life. I gave myself oppertunity to live/work/study in 4 cities/countries. I graduated engineering & MBA way back. The friends who entered my life those days are still intact, that’s my biggest flex. My address will change again next year. I will not say i enjoy travelling, everyone does. I will say, i relocate every 2-3 years. The more people i came in touch with the more i understood, we live in a world of WEAK MEN & GIRLS BUSY IN TIKTOK. Proper inconsistency at play. Still there’s hope to experience a world focused on growth, happiness & fulfillment.
WISHING YOU ALL A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2022.
LOVE AND RESPECT.

I’ve been so blessed to be able to travel so much over these last few years.
One of the most profound things I witnessed while traveling was seeing how much we take for granted.
I’ve seen slums where people are walking around without shoes or jackets in the freezing cold.
I’ve been to places where people are working so hard at such physically demanding jobs while making hardly any money.
It taught me to value every person on this planet and to not take my job for granted, to not take my life for granted, to never take the joy i experience for granted.

Stay open to anything and take a day (or week) seeing a new part of the world.
If you can’t afford to take time off work then visit a new neighborhood in your own town.
One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.
Be grateful for everything you have.

KINDNESS IS MORE THAN DEEDS.
IT IS AN ATTITUDE, AN EXPRESSION, A LOOK, A TOUCH.
IT IS ANYTHING THAT LIFTS ANOTHER PERSON.

(This screenshot got nothing to do with the post above. Google sends an email on first week of every month about your previous month’s travel timelines, it briefly says how many places/cities/countries you travelled. I guess i have taken easy 30+ flights since pandemic restrictions cooled down in July. I travel a lot, because people who are part of my journey have a heart of GOLD. Thanks to my bestie DEMI, Ryanair & Easyjet.)😜

Sunday story time.. 03.

A high school teacher once said;
“Being close & open to your opposite sex is important, you become more transparent, there’s no insecurities which makes you more confident. Later that also helps you build better relationship/friendships”.
I took those words bit too seriously i guess.
Even though my name is bit spoiled with university girls, I haven’t dated many in my almost close to 30 life. Actually i never missed dating someone. Being an extrovert & a LEO, I always had/have options to choose with whom i want to hangout/party/travel/workout/get cozy/watch Netflix/movie night/go hiking or shopping.

Now back to the story/confession/realisation, here it goes:
Way back when I was getting over a breakup, I used to spend most of my night filled with anger & a boyish temper. I didn’t realize it back then, I had so much to achieve in my life & such negative feelings weren’t helping. I wondered why she was able to get over faster than I was. Later I realised, it’s because I was spending so much time hating that situation rather than getting over it.

Anyone from my university friends scratching their head which breakup i am talking about; it’s my bestfriend DEMI. We are bestfriends since 7th century, but we have a mad crazy past. We dated for a very short period of time, I wasn’t ready for a COMMITMENT & i literally thought we were just fooling around. Fault was mine. I said YES to 4 girls for prom night & 2 out of those 4 were our seniors. I was expecting DEMI will be cool with it. To fight back & make me jealous, DEMI went on a date with one of my friends named Ivan. Being a loyal bro, Ivan asked my permission whether he is allowed to take DEMI out for a full monty brunch. DEMI didn’t like her date. She wanted to patch what fell apart in between us, but i was more focused with my studies & part-time job. I didn’t care much because i am the kinda guy who’s happy when my bank account grows, my life is more about my growth rather than allowing someone to mess with my piece of peace. Let’s say, I am a happy man because i am married to my bank account.

It became a runner/chaser situation for a week. Sad to say, i was the runner. One saturday evening it was snowing really bad. It was a lightbulb moment for me, I invited DEMI to try my homemade sourdough pizza. It wasn’t tasty like store-bought pizza, but we both ate it with pin drop silence. That was my first try with sourdough fermentation. Next day DEMI came to my apartment early morning, we followed another recipe from some website & we baked that pizza perfectly. We both were upset about each other’s behaviour. An amazing conversation after a good pizza helped us heal. We both got the closure & clarity we needed.

Coming back to this current day called TODAY, the only person who still sits on my lap is DEMI. I can ask her for a head & back massage anytime i want. We go on long drives. It’s a weddings/royal dinner invitations/travelling to some islands during weekends, we are each other’s +1 partner. If weather is not ok, we make it better by cuddling/spooning each other. 3-4 times she suggested whether we can date again! And as usual, I am not ready for dating experiments. But we already have an amazing equation, i don’t want to destroy that by allowing some romantic melodrama. We have a verbal agreement, there’s a sweet punishment if we miss each other’s phonecall or facetime. Last time i missed DEMI’s call when i was attending a university seminar, i had to send a butt naked snapchat streak to all my 186 friends as punishment. Our communication is flawless. The truth is, it took us a long time to build the amazing equation we share & i am not strong enough to hurt her. If i know someone who is TRUTHFUL & CONSISTENT so far in my life, it’s DEMI. Now there’s nothing except RESPECT & ADMIRATION towards each other.

Takeaway:
Whatever struggle you are facing in your life,
make sure you are not poisoning yourself with anger when you could be giving yourself love.
When you are filled with anger or hate,
the only person that suffers is you because most of the people you hate don’t know it and the rest don’t care.
Fill yourself with SELF-LOVE & SUCCESS before you are in search of LOVE.

What is the point in being alive if you are not going to try for something?
If you are not going to at least attempt to make your time here remarkable?
Stop holding yourself back.
Tell the person that makes your stomach ache with hope that every part of your heart is tender for them, even if you think you aren’t ready.
Don’t just fantasize about your dream job, actively pursue it, and if that door is not open, knock it down.
Dreaming about a new business, go for it & own yourself.
Got a goal? GO, Fetch it.
Buy the plane ticket,
climb a mountain,
swim to shred after an intense workout session,
surf when it’s raining,
pet your canadian warmblood horse like a sweet puppy,
surprise your mates & university bitches with some butt naked snapchat streaks on a beach,
let your friends tease you “Aquaman minus SUPERPOWERS”,
jump the fence,
kiss an angel,
makeout in the middle of a concert,
full throttle that AMG to 150mph cruising through Autobahn while touring cross-country with your bestfriend.

Make sure that you don’t allow your fear to hold you back.
Instead, look your fear in the face and invite it to dinner, become it’s friend.
Live alongside it, let it make you feel alive.
Just choose impossibility.
Choose risk.
Choose making mistakes, new mistakes, and making memories, and making it up as you go.
Just choose to embrace whatever time you do have here, stay consistent on your life path, because life is finite, and fragile, and it vanishes too quickly.
Just make it worth it. Make it count. Life is fun, let it be.

I am happy when I eat fresh fruit,
when I burst out laughing,
when I discover a new song,
when I finish a good book,
when I wake up and feel relaxed.
I’m glad to have friends, family, a home,
food when I’m hungry,
hot water when I shower.
I love being able to live and see the seasons change,
to have gifts at christmas and at my birthday,
to travel sometimes,
to have a good education and a great access to culture.
I’m flattered when people compliment me,
when people smile at me,
when people are polite to me.

There are so many things that make life so simple and easy and I will always think about them more than all the bad things that will happen to me.
I do not have time to be sad every day and ungrateful.
I have every reason in the world to be happy.
Take life day by day and be grateful for the little things.
Don’t get caught up in what you can’t control.
Focus on the positive.
