My Thoughts: Monday Motivation

Live in the moment ©Chitrangadasharan

Sometimes we are too stressed about certain things happening around, and in our lives. We make all the efforts to correct that situation, but fail in doing so.

Always remember— Usually, Things do not happen, as we plan them to be.

We may think something, but the ‘Supreme Power’ may be smiling ‘up’ and thinking something altogether different.

There is a saying in Hindi, which means that, If things happen according to your plans, it’s very good. But, if things happen according to ‘His (The Almighty’s Plan), it’s excellent.

Because, everything ‘The Almighty’ does is for our good, and good for the larger interests of others.

So, enjoy every moment of life, do your best, and leave the rest (to the Almighty.)

Keep Doing Great Work: My Thoughts

©Chitrangadasharan

One week (8 days to be precise) is already over in the new year.

All of us make plans and schedules and resolutions, as the new year commences.

As I looked at the calendar today, I was surprised to find that one week has already passed away.

But, still we have 51 weeks left. 👍👍

So, I am thinking of speeding up my work, finishing those plans, which I had promised to myself.

No more excuses, about weather, about visitors, about any other things.

Hope all of you are keeping your word (to yourself)!

Keep working hard, keep doing great.

👍🌹👍

सर्दियों का मौसम और चाय

Tea time @Chitrangadasharan

वैसे तो आमतौर पर, हर भारतीय घर में चाय से ही दिन की शुरुआत होती है,

लेकिन सर्दियों में उस गर्म चाय की प्याली का मज़ा ही कुछ और होता है ।

ख़ासकर अगर चाय में अदरक, या हरी इलायची, या लौंग, या दालचीनी कूट कर मिलायी गई हो।

ना सिर्फ़ ये स्वाद में अच्छा होता है, बल्कि सेहत के लिए भी श्रेष्ठ है ।

और अगर ये चाय कुल्हड़ में पियें तो मज़ा दुगना होना स्वाभाविक है,

और अगर साथ में प्याज़ के पकौड़े हो जायें, तो कहना ही क्या!!

तो इन्तज़ार क्यों करना, हो जाए!!

Weekend Thoughts: Self Care

Relax and rejuvenate amidst Nature, Picture by ©Chitrangadasharan

You will never speak to anyone, as much as, you speak to yourself, in your head.

So, please be kind to yourself, and spend sometime amidst ‘Nature.’

Nature is the ultimate healer, the real place to de-stress, to rejuvenate, to recharge, with positive vibes.

It’s indeed the best place to be for physical and psychological well being.

Having some ‘Me’ time is essential, and what better place to be, than ‘Mother Nature!’

Weekend Thoughts: Patience and Perseverance

My Thoughts, Picture by ©Chitrangadasharan

Life is a journey with many ups and downs, pleasure and pain, some successes and many failures.

Sometimes, we get stuck up in life. Nothing seems to work, even though we put our sincere and best efforts, and we are on the verge of giving up.

Then, somehow we gather the broken pieces together— start again, fail again, then start again— and the process goes on and on.

But, it’s an established fact that, those who don’t give up, do succeed, at some point of time.

I am sure, people have such stories to share with others.

Sharing those stories, might give others hope, and confidence, and we should often do that.

Try to be someone’s motivation, in their trying times. It is a satisfying experience.

Weekend Thoughts: Self Improvement

My Thoughts, Yellow Rose by ©Chitrangadasharan

Self Improvement is an ongoing process.

The moment, we start believing that we have reached perfection, we stop improving.

And, I believe that there is always scope for more learning, more progress, more perfection.

Not only does self- improvement help you to perform better in your already existing skills, but it also helps you to help others.

You feel better, more confident, with more self belief, and positive thoughts in everything you do.

As we age, we should not start thinking that, ‘Yes! I have achieved everything. I have fulfilled my duties and responsibilities etc. And, what more there is to do?’

No, there is so much to learn, even from the younger generation.

Now is the time to give back to the society, what we have learned and earned.

We should be progressive, open to new ideas, and a desire to learn more, and more.

Life is for learning and there is no end to it, until and unless there is an end to life itself.

Happy Weekend 🌹🌹🌹

Children’s Day

Happy Children’ s Day ©Chitrangadasharan

Happy Children’ s Day!

Why is it that when we think of good and sweet memories, we usually remember our childhood days!!

Even our own children do remember their childhood with fondness, and for the parents, nothing is as enjoyable as the childhood days of their kids.

May be because of the innocence of the children,

May be because the children have a pure heart,

May be the children do not possess negative vibes,

May be the children are compassionate, without the feelings of jealousy, fraudulent behaviour etc.

(So what changes happen, when people grow up, from childhood to adulthood???——-Think it over)

The next time, when you are feeling low, or under stress of some kind, try to spend some time with the children.
