People today get bored of everything very easily, their mobile, their close ones, their partner, their job, their car, their life in general.
The problem is that people have become so impatient, they want newness at every step of life. The truth is that this is not practically possible and living life this way is only going to lead to problems and sadness.
Patience has always been one of the strongest virtues and it is most significant in the present day world. Run after whatever it is that you want to, but don’t run away from everything. As you’ll soon find out, there is no where you can run away to. Try to cherish and enjoy whatever you have while trying to get more out of life.
You can’t skip chapters, that’s not how life works. You have to read every line, meet every character. You won’t enjoy all of it. Hell, some chapters will make you cry for weeks. You will read things you don’t want to read. You will have moments when you don’t want the pages to end.
But you have to keep going. Stories keep the world revolving. Live yours, don’t miss out.
You are exactly where you are meant to be right now. Do not compare your journey to anyone else’s; yours is a wildly different journey up an entirely different mountain. If you were meant to be higher up your mountain, you would be. There might be more you need to learn from this spot before you can keep climbing. There might be something you need to see here before you continue forward.
Maybe you are simply meant to rest before the journey ahead. Regardless of where you are on your path, know that the rest of your story will unfold when it is time. Until then, enjoy your beautifully unique climb.
1. If taking care of yourself means letting someone down, then let someone down. 2. Never let rejection lead to self-rejection. 3. What happened yesterday may not be your responsibility, but how you behave today is upto you. 4. Obsessing over the things that society said you’re supposed to do will kill your happiness. Everyone is different and your path to happiness will be different too. 5. My low maintenance relationships are my strongest. 6. If you want to enjoy your life, don’t subscribe to other people’s definition of ‘fun‘. Your fun belongs to you, make sure you define it. 7. Stop expecting honesty from people who lie to themselves. People who are inconsistent aren’t going anywhere in their life, stop planning a journey with them. 8. If you learn to read books, you can be smart. If you learn to read yourself, you can be anything.
More than anything I really believe we are put here on this earth to enjoy the time we have. Life is precious so don’t get hung up or bent out of shape over the small stuff. Enjoy the present moment and have fun, whatever that means to you.
Enjoy free time with family and friends. Enjoy a laugh and make some memories. Enjoy learning & making people feel the goodness of life. Life is fun, let it be.
(This instagram post got nothing to do with the post above. Shared it because i liked it. I am not too much into shopping. Fast fashion brands & discounts in malls/online stores never excite me to purchase anything. I buy something when i am very specific about what i want. Most clothes/sneakers i wear are usually gifted by friends/brands during my birthday/thanksgiving/christmas or any random Monday. But i am a big sucker for watches. Now a days i prefer a good automatic or chronograph watch, but sometimes i still wear G-Shock watches from my high school/engineering college days.)
1. Give without expecting in return. 2. Trust without wavering. 3. Forgive without punishing. 4. Listen without interrupting. 5. Enjoy without complaint. 6. Answer without arguing. 7. Keep your promises. 8. Speak without accusing. 9. Be patient in all things. 10. Learn to let it go.
Put yourself first. Listen to what you have to say. Be your own bestfriend. Be your own dinner date. Dress up for you. Look good for you. Enjoy your own company. At the end of the day, you’re your LONGEST COMMITMENT.

(This video got nothing to do with the post above. It’s a Punjabi song & i have to talk about it. There’s Tory Lanez, i knew there’s something about girls & heart break. This guy needs to leave that feelings train. Now the good part; Diljit Dosanjh, the best Punjabi singer of all time i guess & his presence/MC is out of this world.)🔥
If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path toward happiness; don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes, because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart, where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again. BE YOU. LIFE IS FUN, LET IT BE.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I share what moves my head or heart. No matter where this war is heading, it’s a big shake to the core of basic human values. & The way we are treating refugees speaks a lot.)
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.
Our preference for instant gratification reveals an important truth about success: because of how we are wired, most people will spend all day chasing quick hits of satisfaction.
The road less traveled is the road of delayed gratification. If you’re willing to wait for the rewards, you’ll face less competition and often get a bigger payoff. As the saying goes; the last mile is always the least crowded.
STAY CONSISTENT & ENJOY THE JOURNEY.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Watch it for fun. Get a tiny insight towards a peaceful life.)
Our lives consist of the beauty we fill them with, the more beauty we surround ourselves with, the richer our lives will be. But wanting everything more and more blocks us from enjoying the things we already have. It’s good to want things in life, but it’s also important not to be greedy.
Don’t obsess over what you don’t have, feel grateful for all that you do have. There’s a traditional Irish saying connecting to this thought of being grateful & practicing gratitude; May you live as long as you want and not want as long as you live.
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.)
You can’t skip chapters, that’s not how life works. You have to read every line, meet every character. You won’t enjoy all of it. Hell, some chapters will make you cry for weeks. You will read things you don’t want to read, you will have moments when you don’t want the pages to end. But you have to keep going.
Stories keep the world revolving. Live your story, don’t miss out.
Now this paragraph is for my close friends. The question is; “Was i angry on Frank?” Answer is: No, i laughed at his tiny mind in November-2019. I was applying for PhD research scholar positions in Berlin. New city for me, Frank took me & few friends to an EXOTIC CAR MEET-UP, that too in a Dacia Duster. Not judging the car, any Dacia or VW is a good daily driver. But, I was laughing at the idea of going to an EXOTIC CAR MEET-UP in a DACIA DUSTER.😂
(No matter how much i praise a Tesla, i am a petrolhead by heart. I am a sucker for all AMG & BMW M-series cars, manual rear wheel drive please.)
Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately it keeps you stuck. The reality is that, there is no one on correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay.
Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person with all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs.
So stop comparing, and start living. You may not have ended up where you intended to go. But trust, for once, that you have ended up where you needed to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough. Enjoy the ride. Life is fun. Let it be.
Every moment of your life is deeply meaningful and plays a significant part in your journey. A lot of time we judge the moment because things don’t go our way but if you look life backwards you understand that those moments made you evolve and brought a shift in your consciousness. Whatever you are going through right now will not make sense to your human mind. You can’t comprehend the life order of universe through logic. But sooner or later all the dots will connect and you will realize that everything was concerned all along.
So instead of judging the moment learn to embrace every moment. Your higher self/consciousness is all about trusting the divine and seeing the deeper truth in every moment. Trust can only come from a place of surrender. Surrendering doesn’t mean you let go of free will. It simply means you let go of the things that are not under your control. Instead of flowing against the current of the river you become the flow. Enjoy every moment & everything is connected, it’s for your higher good.
We always hear “Slow and steady wins the race”, and though I love this idea. I actually love the idea of slowing down to savor the little moments in life even more. Living in our fast-paced world today, it’s easy to get into a busy routine and sometimes we literally don’t have time to catch our breath. Not only is this not healthy for our bodies and our stress levels, but it takes the joy out of whatever we’re doing.
I’ve found that time goes quickly, and if I don’t stop and slow down, I miss the little moments. So whatever place you’re rushing to or goal you are rushing to get, remember to enjoy the process too, otherwise what’s the point?
When you start to get wrapped up in your busy life, pause, take ten deep breaths, and try meditating or doing something that calms you down. STAY STRONG & STAY CONSISTENT WITH THE WAY YOU ARE. (Not my words).
As you move forward, I hope you have the courage to do things differently, to be the kind of person who takes the risk, to be the kind of person who leads with their heart and shows up in their life with a ruthless dedication to learning, growing and enjoying the hell out of their moments here consistenly. DISCIPLINE & CONSISTENCY with your approach are the two tools which can empower you, make you stand out of the crowd in the race of becoming a better Human.
I hope you have the courage to never let comfort or apprehension convince you that you are better off staying still. I hope you have the courage to trust the part of yourself that knows there’s more out there for you, the part of yourself that is easy to quiet when you’re trying to live by the rules and the expectations of a world that has bred so much dissatisfaction and sadness. I hope you have the courage to trust the part of yourself that seeks freedom from those trends, from those boundaries, and I hope you have the courage to go after whatever it is that genuinely makes you want to get up in the morning. I hope you have the courage to find the things in life that ignite you and deepen your understanding of the world and those within it. I hope you have the courage to fight for a future that inspires you, even if it doesn’t look the way you thought it would. I hope you have the courage to change. I hope you have the courage to trust in the person you’re becoming. (Not my words).
Life will always be filled with ups and downs. It’s the law of nature. Yin and yang, light and dark. It’s the nature of life and it’s okay. We must embrace the duality inherent within life. Without night, there is no day. Without male, there is no female. Without black, there is no white. Without negative, there is no positive.
Spending your life trying to make every thing be light only creates suffering. Spending your energy to only hold on to light is not freedom. We must learn to embrace the darkness, and in doing so, we transform ourselves. In accepting the nature of life, we accept what is and what isn’t and experience freedom. Life will always have expansion and contraction. When you stop seeking for perfection outside in the constantly changing world and realize that inside you is the ultimate perfection, that your soul is perfect beyond duality, beyond good or bad-when you understand that, you are free. Truly free. You see that life is perfect even in its seeming imperfection. Peace is an inside job. Don’t look for peace in the world because you won’t find. You can’t truly be free until you deal with the duality of life, to come into a harmonious relationship with what it is. Learn to dance with the reality of life.
This post is my little respect to those who enjoy traveling.
Traveling messes you up, but in all the good ways. It leaves you craving more, an addiction that can never quite be met. Every place, every trip, every person is a new unexpected adventure; pulling you deeper into the love of wanderlust. Your heart begins to hurt when you’re standing still, and your mind begins to itch over the idea of new places you haven’t been. Fill your soul with adventure and traveling and you will live a fulfilled life.
Why once you’ve traveled for the first time all you want to do is leave again!! They call it the travel bug, but really it’s the urge to return to a place where you are surrounded by people who share common interests & speak the same language as you do. Not English or Spanish or German, but that language where others know what it’s like to leave, change, grow, experience, learn, then go back home again and feel more lost in your hometown then you did in the most foreign place you visited. Missing few of my stupid university mates while typing this post. Grateful for the days which always pop up as memories in my Google photos.
I am a big petrolhead, but i also prefer a silent calm environment with less noise & pollution. Cities are beautiful because of it’s people, so it’s always our responsibility to make it more sustainable. In case you are from Berlin, make sure you sign this petition. http://volksentscheid-berlin-autofrei.de
If there is ever a day when you feel tired of saying good for them and you are wondering when things will be good for you, take heart with great hope, and consider all the things this season of growing will lead into. Like an ocean that awaits many miles way, you may not be there yet, but you are surely on your way.
So take your time while you are journeying, travel light, be safe. For there will come a time when you finally arrive on those shores and you will be so glad you did not settle. You will be so glad you did not give up. You will be so glad you did not sync yourself to someone else’s pace and chose instead to anchor yourself in the steady rhythm of grace. And after everything you went through, you arrived where you needed to be on time, and everything will be fine. Not perfect, but fine. For every beautiful thing will happen in its TIME.
If you waste your little time everyday worrying for things which didn’t go as you want, you might end up wasting years out of your 70-80 year life at the end for nothing in return. Focus to see the brighter side of why/how you reached here & appreciate your journey.
Worrying is not a solution to any problem. Tap OUT..😘
Doesn’t matter what you are doing work wise; If it’s providing stability to your life, make sure you enjoy doing it. Without the drive to make it happen, you will lose mojo from self. That’s destructive.
HAPPINESS is nothing but enjoying yourself with your whole TRUTH & MOTIVE.
Yes motherfucker, I look rude & I do have a beef going on with you. But what about those rose red cheeks you have!! You look like a child & child molester at the same time.
Either ways I appreciate you for being a friend to Tap since I know “Being friend” means something in real world. Happy birthday mate. Enjoy a blissful amazing year ahead till I wish you again. Gift yourself a relationship where your girl knows where to drop panties, so that your misunderstandings with friends will stop dragging.
People who fuck with other’s FEELINGS are unsure about their own FEELINGS. Feel them once, & leave them there till they realize their own game. COMPASSION & COCKBLOCK are two complete different words. First shouldn’t work for next. Enjoy your life.
