A life that could’ve been…

Naah, this is not a serious post that analyzes life’s various elements, dissect and give an anatomy report. It’s an imagination of life that could’ve been a way which is completely different from the current one.

Holidays are really important to do various things in life. How about having 3 days weekend all through the year? You don’t have to wake up early for 3 days, so much time to fight with your loved ones and also time to understand them much better.

You work so well, putting your heart and mind during work hours; but in after hours your brain may just resist to think and cooperate further. How about having two brains? If one gets tired, let’s hibernate it and use the other!

Naturally, we are constrained on moving freely in this world. Unlike birds which fly over continents, fishes which swim across the oceans, we humans always get stuck with these traffic woes. How about having wings along with the hands? We can travel as and when we wish and bid adieu to the everlasting traffic chaos. (Not sure of the air traffic that might surge if everyone starts flying!)

You may like some moments very much in life and wish you could get back them again. Let’s consider college days, or the first day you spent time with your soul mate, or any everlasting memorable incident in life. How about having a live record button and experience them again and again!

Sometimes life surprises you with two important events at the same time. It may be hard to sacrifice one for the other. How about having two YOU so that one can work diligently at office giving reports to your boss and the other can lend roses to your loved ones sipping a hot cuppa :)

But life is truly interesting only without these things. The moments we long to get back those wonderful days, the little unpredictable surprises, sailing through tough times thinking this too shall pass, having great confusions on sacrificing one for the other etc., life is just truly worth it.

The new beginnings

Beginnings are always good. We may not remember few of them and in few cases we may not even know how it all got started. But definitely there would have been a hesitation, a little fear, a little not sure factor, a little ‘should I do this now’ thoughts. However every experience will sure to give you some cherished moments and learnings in life.

At a later stage, we may think either one of this; ‘glad I did that’, or ‘I shouldn’t have done that before’. If it’s a former one, well and good that you’ve started something new in life and the determination paid you; but the latter one is a troublesome thing.

Whatever happened is happened. It’s all been done and you can only let it be. In this roller coaster ride of life, you should strive to realize your full potential. You may be much stronger and mightier than you think. There’s an opportunity waiting everyday for you to discover. It may help you to undo/overwrite things from the past.

If you truly believe in something, and your instinct supports you, just go for it and begin it; even if the whole world is against it. When your instinct fails you, don’t collapse or feel bad. It’s just a part of life and can happen to anyone. Think all over again and get started. Do it and remember to do it well.

Don’t hesitate to face the change. Every challenge gives you myriad opportunities to discover a new you. Surpass the obstacle with a smile. If the world doesn’t accept you now, you rather be patient and wait for your turn. There will be a time where the world will just accept you as you are; but at that time, you should remain the same without changing your ideology.

Coffee - The ultimateness

No, this post is not about the benefits of coffee and what good it’s gonna do for you. This is about the lighter side of life, exploring coffee’s role in our day-to-day activities and how it helps making some major breakthroughs in life. This indeed plays a great role than we can imagine. You may think what is there in this single cuppa coffee? Often small things are overlooked in life, but this one plays a crucial part in everything.

Great ideas, great conversations, romantic intuitions, friendly hearts, sibling loves and many, many other things are happened in this world just over a cuppa coffee.

For students, this is a great companion to make them stay awake for studies. It will help them kill the sleep and win over studies for the next advancement in life.
And for all those young adults, this is a great conversation starter, be it with your friend or a lover.

You may just ring up your friend when you feel down due to various other things in life, and your friend will ask you to meet-up at a coffee place for a chat, just to pull you back to normalcy. The soothing words, the consoling talks, the reliable shoulder which all will help you feel normal, but all this would have happened over a cuppa coffee!

You would have seen a huge gang of pals meet at a place to chit-chat and discuss life’s best things over this coffee. Of course they wouldn’t have realized the time gone by.

From great business strategy meeting, corporate acquisitions, multinational expansions to sales review meeting and marketing way-forward, this coffee stays everywhere to make all those office breakthroughs happen successfully.

When you’re engaged, you may take your soulmate to have this cuppa coffee to understand her better for the rest of your life. When you fight with your better-half, you will make some special coffee for her with all your love, to end your fight and bring a smile on his/her face.

So next time, when life stops you with something, you know what to have to move forward!

Wash your mind and thoughts

Your mind is a generator of thoughts and you have to keep it clean to have a good output. Bad/ill stated mind will only generate negative thoughts that will manifest to bring more sadness to life. We all take bath everyday to clean our external body, have washing machines to clean our wardrobes etc. But how do we clean our mind and soul?

Unfortunately, you can’t clean them like the way you clean your body, dress and everything. Given a chance, we all might take our mind out, soak it in a detergent to remove all the dirt, dry it and put it back to have a refreshed start. Who knows, people might even put a conditioner which will make the mind stay fresh all through the day! But none of them is possible.

There are few ways which can help in cleaning our mind and soul. We will have to streamline the thoughts to facilitate our mind to stay clean.

Throw that rubbish:
Just like how you’ll never let the garbage stay inside your house, the same way you should never accumulate the rubbish in your mind. They could be anything like negative thoughts, being pessimistic, doubtful, obsessive, depression etc. If your mind is occupied by so many other rubbish things, there won’t be any room for positive thoughts and inspirations which will lift you mood and bring happiness.

Change the surrounding:
Your external environment may influence your mind and thoughts. If you feel like you are surrounded by too many rubbish things, just move out of your current environment to a new place. It could be a next room or balcony or any new environment. Your thought process may change and old pattern might diminish.

Don’t hold on to resentment:
Grudge will eat up most of your mind’s valuable resources, never allowing any good things to come out. The person whom we hold the resentment may not even know about this or care about it. It is only going to affect your peace of mind. Practice the art of forgiveness. It will help thrash away those unwanted feelings from your mind.

Find your happiness factor:
This could be anything that will make your mind shift its focus and give happiness and positive affirmations about life. It can be any of your passion, a sport, a friend, a calm moonlit walk, a social service, a musical relaxation, a spiritual connection, a meditation or anything that will help you strike that happiness chord.

Remember, a clean mind is a gateway for a beautiful soul…!
