Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
True self-care is not salt baths and chocolate cake. It is making the choice to build a life you don’t need to regularly escape from. And that often takes doing the thing you least want to do. It often means looking at your failures and disappointments square in the eye and re-strategizing.
It is not satiating your immediate desires. It is letting go. It is choosing new. It is disappointing some people. It is making sacrifices for others. It is living a way that other people won’t, so maybe you can live in a way that other people can’t.
If youve never tasted a bad apple, you will not appreciate a good apple. You have to experience life to understand life. You have to endure disappointment in life, all kind of disappointments, you have to fall flat on your face and feel the pain. Accept that a lot of your “friends”rather see you fall and fail. Jealousy is bad disease. It’s hard to accept and it has a bitter taste, but thats life. At the end if you don’t give up, SUCCESS is inevitable. We have to fall before we find out who we really are and what we are capable of.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. One of my favourite songs i must say, I had to share it.🤣 Watch it for fun.)
When people act shady, allow them. When people betray your trust, allow them. But never, ever sink to their level. Their choices are a direct reflection of who they are, not who you are. No matter how angry, hurt, or disappointed you may be, do not allow them to make you bitter. Be better. React with love. Sometimes that means retaliating with understanding and compassion; other times it means retaliating with acceptance and sheer silence. Whatever it is, make sure it benefits you as a human being instead of lowering you into a position which you would rather not be in.
Normal people dont go around destroying other human beings. Only those who are hurt, lost, and confused cause pain. Don’t be one of them. Just take the lessons and move on gracefully.
Growth won’t always look the way you envisioned it.
Sometimes we can romanticize growth as only being abundance or making space for more. But i also believe growth involves shedding, loss, and really tough shifts. Growth is saying how you really feel. Growth is sometimes disappointing others by choosing you. Growth is being willing to let go even though it’s hard. When we ask for growth, we may have to be willing to allow people, places, and opportunities to leave for our benefit. That’s growth too.

(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Very few know about my Cullinan review video in snapchat spotlight. I am an automobile enthusiast. Rolls Royce recently made two electric engine marvels. One is this prototype phase spectre, their first electric vehicle. Other one is an world’s fastest electric engine plane. Waiting to see other luxury brands to follow. Future looks good.)
GOD is not in a hurry, you are. That’s why you are tired. That’s why you are anxious, and stressed, and disappointed. You just need to remain true & consistent with the way you are in your walk of life. Trust that what’s meant to be yours, will be yours.
How rare the trust is these days, how small the case looks like a strong bond based on openness and honesty, how small the chance seems to be a bit of loyalty and commitment?!? Even smaller is the chance of a combination of the above, smaller and almost rare.
We all want it, in fact we all call it. We claim to be loyal, to be open, to be honest, but if we are all, how does distrust arise? The disappointment? The abuse of trust and the use of someone else?
Whether it’s love, friendship or family. We all want the same thing. We all want respect, trust, honesty, communication, openness and loyalty consistently. Be aware of your choices, your actions and consequences before you harm a relationship, a relationship that is self-reliant today. If you want them to be true to you, then stay true to yourself first. (Not my words).
Be happy on purpose. Look for the rainbow when it’s raining. Find the hope even when it’s bleak. Choose forgiveness even when bitterness is easier. Choose love even when it feels impossible. Make it a habit to choose joy as much as you possibly can because life isn’t meant to be lived in disappointment or frustration. It’s not meant to be lived in hatred. It’s meant to be lived laughing so hard your stomach hurts. It’s meant to be filled with soft moments of love. It’s meant to be filled with tight hugs that last for minutes. Life is meant to be lived happy.
Next few lines about this word “HAPPY”. Only my 17 close friends know why sometimes i ask “Are you happy?” during our weekend meets. Good people, good communication & good vibes are always welcome with a HAPPY heart. (Pizzeria & Diwali, Thanks to all those who joined for a tiny celebration.)
Just always be the better person. And make your intentions pure. What and who you are is what will be remembered. Pain is inevitable and it will always exist, but if you focus on understanding what you are and what you are feeling, and why you are feeling it, you will overcome it.
The expectations we have often do not correspond with reality, we are disappointed every time this happens. We become disappointed when we expect to be treated as we treat others. When you start to realize that everyone is living at a different stage, thinking differently and making their choices, then you can only accept the fact that people do not share the same mind and heart. When you want to be happy you have to let go of that and start with yourself, be the person you can be proud of, be an example, show respect and understanding. Others may not change, but know that it is not up to you and be proud of how you are. You’ve got so much soul to be handled by someone who has never been passionate. Be a better you first. Life is fun, let it be.
