Promise yourself- A reminder in life:

22 Apr

I got this poem when I was a child. It is from an inspirational book and I do not know much about this author. I hanged this at my desk in my workplace to remind me about myself in the ups and downs of life.

Promise yourself  – Wilna Wintringham

All are happening for best

All-best-pic

My heart was filled with sorrow

Like the clouds of the sky

And there was nothing except tears

About the cross I bore.

I wandered like a child in strange places

To find out that distant solace of mine Read the rest of this entry »

Festivals- Christmas and Hanukkah are passing…. or just happy holidays?

09 Dec

Religions are paths to God-the Supreme Being- the goodness. God- without shape and form…a hard concept to understand. Primitive man worshiped him in the form of nature. Then in different places, different religions formed to understand God. So Hinduism, Muslim, Jews, Christianity, Buddhism….everything leads to God to promote goodness in human hearts.

Each religious festival has a meaning regardless of the religion, story or myth behind it. Read the rest of this entry »

How to make ‘work’ a positive experience:

23 Nov

(Update: If you like to see more articles, check my blog about work- Workitch (A blog from the founder of HireJustME.com) )

Most of us are doing the work just like a routine. Is it possible to make it in harmony with us, so that we can enjoy being at work too? It is important to be happy since most of the time in our life, we are spending at workplace. The best times of days- we are at work. If we are mood off, the time at home also become miserable.

Think of our work in a different angle. Even if we have boring routine, repetitive tasks, mean co workers, bossy managers…we can make our work a positive experience. Read the rest of this entry »

Goodness and God:

05 Nov

(My usage here is- without quotes God is the actual word; with quotes ‘God’ is the term when it is used differently)

Whenever people talk about God, it seems like an untouchable subject. Some see it as political, advice, religious or crazy. There is even a saying – not to talk about ‘God, age and politics’ between friends and family.

‘God’ is used everywhere, necessarily and unnecessarily in politics, religion, selfishness, curse, and blessing…etc.

When we think about God – our picture in mind is what we believe or hear about ‘God’. Just like when we hear about ‘Christmas’ some think of festival, Santa, gifts, tree, lights, sacrifice, gift of life…as per the individual’s perception, understanding and experience.

Can we change that image about God? Read the rest of this entry »

Paying back!

14 Oct

I know one of my friend who looks after her old mother who has Alzheimer’s. It is very hard for her, but she tries her best. Some people tell to put mother in a nursing home…but for her if she cannot do her best, she won’t feel good about herself. My friend may do it if she cannot handle in any way. But now, she has the resources to do it. She is telling, it is time to pay back for what her mother did. When she had to get up at night, she remembers how her mother had to do that for her!

When I look back in my life, I feel like kids always take it granted that parents do lot of stuff for them. When I became a mother I realized how much I have to thank my mother. When I had my baby with me, it was like I will do anything in this world to protect her. I remembered the incidents my mother was on my side to support, protect and encourage. Then I realized how fortunate I am to have her…I understood the value of having her.

Sometimes we don’t realize how fortunate we are to have mothers. Like everything, we don’t realize the value of something when we have it. I know a woman who said- she is grateful that sometimes her son visits. Sons and daughters, think about your kids…when they grow up, how you want them to be? Be like that to your parents! If you get a chance to pay back, don’t hesitate-go with your heart!

Listening and telling:

14 Oct

It is very common that we tempt to tell our loving ones this may the right way. We express it in different ways. Some people tell it as jokes, some people tell through the phone, some people through letters.

“How not to be so sensitive”

16 Aug

Some people think that being sensitive is something wrong. They think when you cry in front of others it makes them look weak. When you cry seeing a movie, people laugh at it.

Is being sensitive something to be changed in you?

What do we mean by being sensitive? Being sensitive and self-pity are totally different.

Self-pity arises from low self-esteem, sensitiveness arises from compassion.
While self-pity is selfishness, sensitiveness is giving.
Self pity makes you lose reasons; sensitiveness makes you realize reasons.
Self-pity is stubbornness; but sensitiveness listen to others.
Self-pity is denial; sensitiveness is acceptance.

If you are having self pity, that needs to be removed. To do so, you have to feel confident in yourself. Being a good human with sensitiveness is a great strength and virtue. If you are sensitive, be grateful and proud about that–don’t ever change it–be the sensitive YOU always.

—————————-

Update: One of my readers told me to write about ‘advice on how not to be sensitive’. Here it is:  How to live with sensitivity. This article or the previous article is not about ‘how not to be sensitive’, because, I will not tell anyone that being sensitive is something wrong or to be changed.
