Yesterday, I have done something, which I hated the most!  Guess what?  I actually felt better 🙂 I always wondered how people wander in the malls and spend time to choose that one particular thing / item.  However, when I was trying yesterday it made me feel nice.  Though a little disappointment was there that I couldn’t get what I actually started off for, yet I was happy to find something that I wanted for so long and could get them for once!

I was on the verge of buying anything and everything that fit me 😀 but logic came to my senses and my wallet put a halt to my interests 😉

 Shopping isn’t bad at all, if only, one has dollars to pay and you get at least half of what you have targeted for! 😉 😛

I mean, I am not saying I haven’t done shopping at all.  It’s just that I have never done shopping for myself! It was always for gifts.

I always wondered why most of the people “love” things and “like” people.  Now if I think about it, I don’t see any wrong in that.  Of course, people are to be loved but nonetheless things can also be loved.  I love my MP3, my Bike, spectacles, hair band, ear rings, mobile (now a days least interest), my computer and an endless list.  If I look at it, these are the necessities in my life. 

What would I do if at times I feel low and can’t be at home or have a company?  Isn’t my bike the best bud to have? And like icing on the cake if my MP3 wouldn’t support to drift my thoughts, wouldn’t I feel much low?

I know; to have those “precious” things, money is important, but, tell me even if you have money can you get people? Can you get their utmost dedication and priority towards you? But it’s not the same with things.  You purchase an item and it is yours forever!  It serves you until it lives!  If at all it’s down, you get it repaired and it is again up with renowned energy!

A bow to all the lovable things I have till date! Thanks for making my life much easier, happier and safer! 🙂

To keep motivating day in and day out there are so many ways!  Yoga, Meditation, Gym, Music, Spiritual activities, Long drives and the list goes on and on.  However, the important ingredient is the “start”.  And it has to be within.  Since 4 weeks or so I have been suffering from depression!  Yes, there is a reason. There would be a reason for everyone to go into that state.  And the reason need not be a blunder and/or regret.  It could be as simple as spilling the coffee on the dress or as big as losing a most valuable person in life.  But the so called depression, it’s like a drug. 

Negative thoughts through and through, best critic you’ve ever seen or known in the world! The one feeling that actually makes us believe that “I am seriously a waste piece on this Planet Earth”!  It’s as serious as I see myself in the mirror and I hate to see the mirror again i.e., I hate myself so much. It’s a pain you can never explain! In spite of so much of negativity, we still give space to those thoughts.

Friends, Family, Hobbies everyone are available to help and get us out from this situation.  But we deny everyone’s help.  It’s not that we don’t want to take their help.  It’s the gush of so many thoughts which are shouting that these are the facts of you.  This is your life.  Eventually, we believe those thoughts so much that we actually don’t realize that we are into depression already.

Does that mean we don’t smile, stay lost and / or lose concentration? No, not really.  As long as we are in the crowd, the life goes on.  Laugh, Smile, crack a joke, complete the tasks, carry on with the daily life.  Only that the life is missing in those tasks.  It’s like as if we have already grown 10 years older in 10 days.  Nothing whatsoever will make us feel better. 

The funny part is, it all starts with a reason and the reason itself gets lost.  The thoughts would be so horrifying that the reason now is you. 

Well, as I already stated in the beginning to get out of this situation the start should be from within.  I am trying, I haven’t succeeded yet.  I am still struggling.  One day I feel that I am recovering.  I can push away all the negativity in me.  And the next day the thought process comes back to square one.  This time I am firm not to be a prey.

Self Appreciation Matters!

“Change” a very interesting thing that keeps on happening in life!  No matter whatever we ignore; change and hope are two things that can never be left behind. 

However, there is a small catch in this.  If one is very fast in adapting the change it’s tough to digest the fact and hence random comments will be passed.  And if one does not accept the change that person is termed as “old fashioned”.  For instance I have this guy in my team who follows trend up to date.  His way of dressing amuses many people on the floor. It’s not that he dresses awkward but it’s just too early to dress up like that in the city of Vizag.  Attitude really matters!  This guy for sure know the thinking of that “many people” but he simply does what he loves.

Anyways, the thought behind to write this topic was; yesterday I was conducting this Personality Development sessions and there came a topic about how important it is to “show case” ones self.  Our parents always taught us how to be humble, obedient, show respect so on and so forth.  However, “most of” our parents have forgotten to teach us that it is equally important to show case the talents which we possess and it is not at all a negative point to exhibit them.

They have taught us how to appreciate others; however, forgotten to explain how important it is to appreciate one self.  They have always taught us how to compliment others when someone does the right thing but forgot to let us know how important it is to compliment ones self for the right thing we do.

Yesterday, when I was conducting this session I have asked a question to the class i.e., what was one factor that they like in themselves; out of 15 employees who have attended the session only 3 of them were able to answer immediately.  The rest of them took a real hard time to realize what the factor they appreciate in themselves was and some gave up saying they don’t have any!!  All of them had a minimum of 26 to a maximum of 36 years of work experience in their present field and except for a couple of them all belong to the Capital city of India.

Adapt the change; understand that there is nothing wrong to love ourselves.  In fact it is the most important factor in life!  Appreciate.  Motivate.  Give importance.  Exhibit!  Everything has to start from within.

Today I write this because it’s been ages that I am habituated to be humble.  I have been habituated so much that if someone compliment’s me I feel embarrassed rather than being proud.  Thanks to the present organization, I have learn’t that “exhibiting selling your hard work” is a very important factor to climb up the ladder.  No matter how much the management knows how good my tasks are driven through, nothing matters if I am not able to explain the same in an interview!

Today I write this because if I compare how many times I was proud of myself and how many times I regretted for not doing the task or not taking the right decision properly.  The amount of criticism that I have given to myself was much more than appreciation.

I realized this importance 3 years ago and I am still struggling to achieve my goal.  So friends if you are already there I appreciate for realizing and adapting the change.  If you are like me, I hope we achieve what we have aimed soon.  And if you are still not there, it’s high time that you realize the importance of yourself!!

Wish me Good Luck and Good Luck to you too!!
