My Realization About Happiness

June was a month when we were having a series of negative vibes around the world. So, I was constantly receiving negative vibes, both from inside and outside. That’s enough to push you towards a world of grief, depression, stress, and anxiety. I was not an exception. But, amidst everything negative, I found a positive one. That was, being positive from inside and spreading that positivity to the outer world.

I was unhappy because I focused on the negative things only. I reminded the things I lost, the people who betrayed, how I received ignorance, how I missed the opportunities, how I did mistakes, how my innocence was fooled, and what will never come back to me. I focused on the things I DIDN’T have. In this dramatic period of unhappiness, I completely forgot to welcome the things I ALREADY have. And here is the truth I realized very soon.

“Happiness lies in welcoming all the colours of happiness in your world and celebrating them to celebrate the melody of life. Happiness is showering love to the life’s blessings to you.”

So, after finding the key to happiness, I started working on myself. And gradually, I started recovering from the unhappy state of mind.

Here is the list of things I did in Juneto keep myself positive and happy from inside:

1. Writing Positive Quote:

I wrote a positive quote everyday and posted it on social media and eventually, shared it with everyone so that others could receive the good vibes too. Thus, I created a chain of positivity.

2. Introspection is Therapeutic:

I started talking to my inner self more. I found introspection is therapeutic. To calm the anxiety, I keep telling myself what I really want and what I really DON’T want. Keeping a track what you don’t like to do is more important than checking up for the things that matter to you. Because this way, you can keep yourself away from the unnecessary burdens around you.

3. Finding Solace in Spirituality:

I found peace in the realm of spirituality. I started reading spiritual books, at least one page a day.

4. Love Yourself:

Loving myself was hard but I tried my best. I embraced the flaws of mine, I accepted the reality and the fact that I can’t change it. Letting go is the most difficult in such phase. But, after a lots of effort when I really embraced the art of letting go, I felt lighter.

5. Let It Go:

There are some things that hold really no meaning at all. They hold no purpose. A bad chapter is not the whole story of you. It’s just, a chapter with sad ending. And ending is always a new beginning, too. Letting go of the past is the best way to welcome the future in your life. When you live the present to the fullest, only then you live life with the note of happiness.

6. Rule Your Life:

Never let others to control your life and your mind. It’s your life, take responsibility and make peace with your choice. Whatever happens, it always happens for a certain reason. Whether it’s a learning experience for you or it’s there to lead you ahead. When you become a master of your own, you can live a life full of happiness.

7. Surround Yourself with Positivity:

Try to surround yourself with positive people, positive news, positive books and everything that brings positivity to you. Remember, it’s an important lesson for life. When you surround positivity, your mind will find peace and it will reflect positive vibes to you.

8. Try to seek positivity in every little thing you have in this moment. Be it little, but it can impact well on your mind. Life has always something to celebrate. You have to find it.

9. Find Hope:

Hope is always there with you. Every day begins with a new promise of hope. So, start your day with a note of positivity and seek happiness in every little thing you have.

10. Find the Peace Within:

Finding the peace within is the key to happiness. When you’re going through a phase where you face only negative things and you wonder about the purpose, the meaning of your life, try to dive deep inside the sea of emptiness. It will echo the answer you have been searching for long. As I found the key to bang on.

So, it was my own realization about Happiness.

“Happiness is celebrating every little beauty you have around, right here, right now. Happiness is finding the peace within. Happiness is to define happiness in your own way, absolutely.”

Things I learned during lockdown

Lockdown has brought the world to test the power of resilience at its best. The world became confined in a tiny version of world locked in home. Life is wrapped up with continuous chaos and hopelessness. Sometimes, I felt breathless and chocked from inside. I tried to find hope and eventually fell into learning something of my own. In a new way, absolutely. This way, life kept surprising me with its treasures of hope.
While this was the biggest revelation I received in the lockdown phase, there were some more I came across while writing my own journal.
Here are the things that I learned in lockdown phase:

Be grateful:

In this phase, I learned to be grateful for everything I have. At first, I wake up in morning saying Thank You to life. I am alive and this is the best gift one can ever receive. Life is big, every breathe is a gift from the divine grace. Every breathe is the messenger of life. Be grateful, you are alive.

Be happy with what you have:

You have everything. You have food on your plate, you have roof above your head. You have clothes, you have the strength to create the life you wish. You have everything that makes one happy. Be happy whatever life has in store for you.

Trust each other:

When life hits you hard to spend days after days in a small space, you don’t have much to do outside, try to build your own little happy world. Trust each other and build strong relationship with everyone in the family. Forget, forgive.

Celebrate togetherness:

The little space you own in this big world, belongs to your family. The ones who were, who are and who will be with you always you need a hand to hold, a shoulder to weep. They are your forever happiness. When the outer world is squeezed to this little word inside the home, celebrate togetherness every day in a new way. Make this world a happy one, help each other to stay positive. Let this togetherness be your real strength.

Take care of your mental health:

While being cocooned to a smaller space for an unlimited period of time, it’s quite obvious to fall mentally sick. Additionally, there are lots of negative news we are hearing these days. So, it’s obvious to feel suffocated with stress, depression, anxiety, frustration and many more. But, don’t let these control your life. Remember, there is still hope. There is still positivity around us, you just need to find them. Like your physical health, take care of your mental health. Meditate daily. Meditation will help you to calm your inner self.

Minimalist Lifestyle:

You will never know how little you need to live a simple life of peace, happiness, and joy, until the world will push you hard to live a minimalist lifestyle. Stripped to a life where you bring home only the things you really need makes you realize that life is best when you live it with little demand and big salutation. Lockdown has made me learned this amazing fact about life.

Be resilient, this too shall pass:

Whatever it takes you to stick to the storm and be strong, just do it. Your power of resilience is the only power that will make you a winner after the storm will pass. In this phase of lockdown, the only thing we can do is to pray from heart and soul to the Almighty for bringing hope and restoring peace in the world. Be resilient, have faith, this too shall pass.

*******


Life is beautiful. There comes a chapter that makes you learn a lots of things in the walk of life. Welcome the little happiness with gratitude and be compassionate. Life is big. Celebrate life with all you have. 

Let’s pray together for this scary phase to go away as soon as possible. Let’s pray for good health, let’s hope for peace. 

Let’s hope for a better tomorrow.

Finding Positivity in Your Hard Time

When we are going through the hard time, life seems miserable despite having all the things we wish. This happened to me in the last month. June was a month when my world turned upside down, once again and I felt broken completely. This time, I felt like, I would never succeed to rise again. This is not the first time I felt broken. I have been broken from inside many times before that. Every time I fell and broke, I managed to rise again. But, this time, it took me long to accept the reality and getting myself ready to let go of the past. Until I did it, I was unable to move on in life. Gradually, after fighting hard with my own self, I made myself understand that whatever I lost will never come back to me. What I didn’t find will never come to my life. Whatever I didn’t receive, it was not for me.

Rather, I should focus on what I have, now. I should count my blessings and find purpose to move on. I am a brave girl with a strong will power and a firm believer in the power of dreaming. So, how could I let myself drown into tears and fears? Never. It’s obvious to fall from the pinnacle of success, to face failures, to do mistakes. But, there is always hope to walk ahead. This is how I define life.

So, you may wonder when life is pushing you hard and you don’t feel life is adventurous, how could you find hope and positivity around you and your tiny world?

I am going to write here some tricks that worked for me well. I started believing that I have nothing left to do on life. But, there is always someone who will tell you who will remind you how strong and brave you are. It’s your inner voice. When I introspect, I found my voice back and I was ready to move on in life.

20200714_184810_0000

Here are the ways how I embraced positivity during my hard time:

1. Write a positive quote:

I started writing positive quotes. I searched for inspiration and wrote my own quote on the journal. Thus, I found positive vibes around me. I started receiving positive vibes from outside and also from inside. It helped me to keep going. 

2. Be grateful:

Gratitude helps you to find your life’s blessings. There are lots of things and people in your life to be grateful. It would be better if you can maintain a gratitude journal in this phase to write your heart out there. List the names of things, people around you who are the motivational force for you, whose presence and company you enjoy, whose name in your life lighten up your face. Be grateful to everything you have received so far. They’re life’s rewards for you. 

3. Accept yourself:

Accepting yourself helps you to reduce the burden of loss and accepting the reality helps you to let the past go. Letting go the memories that bring tears in your eyes always make you stronger from inside. Eventually, you will find the way to move on. 

4. Let it go:

As said, to find positivity in your hard time, it’s most important that you let go of your memories of the part of life that will bring only negative vibes to you. They make you weak. Eventually, you find life has no meaning at all. But, when you ask yourself that if they hold any purpose to you, your inner voice will always answer you a big no. So, it’s apt to let the memories go away with all your dark period. Say to yourself, “Now, it’s time to embrace new beginning, new identity. I am starting everything anew. “

5. Introspection:

When life pushes you hard, that time, you need to find a corner and start introspection. You are hiding a stronger version of yourself, within this cocooned self. So, it’s the great time to hear the voice within. Try to introspect your flaws that could be turned to your strength too. Try to embrace the inner peace. 

6. Hear the void:

In this phase, you may feel empty from inside. But seeker, remember one thing. Emptiness is the roaring storm in disguise. This time, you need to pause and reflect to the void. Perhaps, you would find the purpose you were searching for so long. 

7. Be your own inspiration:

Always be your own inspiration. Before going to be inspired by a stranger from the outer world, you must be inspired by yourself first. Just look behind, the road you have travelled so far. It’s always there to inspire you to walk ahead. 

8. Pick a good habit:

Picking a good habit is always inspiration. Because this way, you meet the one you have seen very long ago. You meet the one you were, once. You meet the one you have left behind, so far, many years ago. And this will help you to rejuvenate. 

9. Find positivity in little things:

We have a genuine tendency to ignore the little things around us. But, I have realized, when life seems miserable and we can’t find hope, little beauties around us always help to find positive vibes. They are the most beautiful gifts on earth. 

10. Find the peace within:

Finding the peace within is one of the best ways to get motivated from within. I know, in this phase of life, finding the peace within is most difficult task one can ever think of. But, try to find a lonely corner and make solitude your guide. Inhale deeper and stay calm. Finding the inner calmness will heal your wounds. 

11. Celebrate yourself:

Seeker, you are brave, you are beautiful. Trust me, you are the most powerful one I have ever seen. Your uniqueness define you best. Celebrate yourself everyday. Remember, you deserve the best. Always. 

So, this way, I tried to calm myself, heal myself and celebrate myself. I tried to find positivity in every little thing around me. I wrote down about them on my journal. I found the inner peace. And now, I am on my way of moving on in life. Because I know, life is big and I have to celebrate this beautiful gift with everything I have. Right now, right here. 

Accept Yourself to Inspire Yourself

When I am writing about being inspired by yourself, then it’s most important to tell you how to be inspired by your own beauty and wisdom. Accepting yourself is one of the most powerful way to inspire yourself.
A bad chapter is not the whole story of you. It’s just, a chapter with sad ending. And ending is always a new beginning, too. Letting go of the past is the best way to welcome the future in your life. When you live the present to the fullest, only then you live life with the note of happiness.
Life is beautiful. There comes a chapter that makes you learn a lots of things in the walk of life. Welcome the little happiness with gratitude and be compassionate. Life is big. Celebrate life with all you have. 

Accepting our flaws and imperfections, accepting our failures and mistakes and accepting the past, are one of the most difficult tasks to do in life. But, I have realized, accepting these things could make my life a better one. I always love to say that be your own inspiration. Always. You are your biggest inspiration and you will be always your biggest motivational force. From inside. When you can’t accept your past, or your imperfections or your failures, you can not move on. And moving on in life is as important as breathing.

Moving on is like breathing. Whether we need to breathe the air to keep ourselves physically alive, moving on is the one to keep ourselves alive from within.

Accepting yourself is the first step towards embracing the art of letting go. On other note, letting go is the very first step towards accepting yourself. When you let go of the past and accept that past is just a time that left a scar in your life, that’s all to do with past. Past is gone. You are living in the Present. And the more you will take time to work on your presence, the more your Future will take time to gift you surprises.

20200604_114612_0000

Two major things can help you to accept yourself and then they will help you to move on. They are:

  • Acknowledge your reality: Acknowledging the reality is the very first step towards accepting yourself. Try to say your heart that things went wrong because they had to. But, there were certainly some reasons behind this. I have to find the reason and make myself stronger and braver than before. You might have done mistakes but you did them unknowingly. You might have faced failure but you did it because you wanted to take risks. You might have received rejection but you did nothing, only that place didn’t welcome you. Remember, whenever you do some mistakes, you also do something right that keeps you standing for a cause that matters to you. Whenever you faced failures, there was someone who won because you are the one who tried and then only you failed. You failed because you deserve something else and that failure is your ultimate teacher so that you can learn life’s algorithm. Whenever you received rejection, that interprets the facts that you deserve something else. There is certainly another place where you will be welcomed with all the glory. Acknowledge the reality to accept yourself and move on in life.
  • Make lists of your goals: Making list of your targets is an intelligent way to recover from the pain of your past. Rather, it helps you to focus on your future goals and help you to understand your dreams and passion better. At first, make small goals and try to fulfill them You can begin with Love Yourself. A sample list can look like:
    • Love yourself.
    • Wake up early and feel the morning vibes.
    • Walk.
    • Sleep properly.
    • Do whatever you love, what brings unconditional happiness to you.
    • Try to smile as much as possible.
    • Find a purpose to go ahead. It could be something casual or little, or, it could be something big.
    • Name the ones who love you unconditionally. And also, the ones you love. They are the sole reason to keep you inspired always.
    • Get involved in creativity.
    • Most importantly, live a life without any expectation. Things will fall into place at the time they are destined to.

Dear seeker, if you are seeking the true meaning of life, you can’t stop at a place. You have to move on in life. To move on, you have to accept yourself as you are and let the older self go. Today, let the new self of you born with strength, bravery and rebellion. A resilient one, just like the bird that can withstand the storm and when it’s passed, it can fly higher. Higher in the sky of dreams.

Accept yourself to inspire yourself.

Dear Dad, Thank You for gifting me the untold story of mine

Dear Dad,
Whenever I needed a hand to hold,
In the streets, in the storm,
You were always there to make me aware of the power of resilience.

Whenever I needed a shoulder,
To weep off my pain, to wash away my insanity,
You were always there to embrace me in your arms.

Whenever destiny pushed me hard,
Into the test of life,
You were always there to show me the light.

Whenever I asked you, “Why me, Dad? Why it’s me, why, nobody else? “
You were the one who replied me back,
“For you are special to Him.”

I always wondered, why this daughter of yours is treated in a different way? Why, always?

It’s you who kept singing the anthem of inspiration to me. And I learned,
To be inspired by my own journey.
To become the silence that is hidden beneath the roar of the thunder.

It’s you who told me to be a rebel queen of her own empire.
And today, years later, I discovered that the fairy tale I used to love in my childhood, was the untold story of mine.

I have realized,
That a woman is always a warrior.
That a daughter is always a princess.
That a queen is always a rebel.

Thank you for gifting me the most beautiful fairy tale I’ve ever read in my life. Thank you for always being my real hero.

– Princess of the heart palace of a Royal father.

Express yourself to inspire yourself

An important way to embrace the art of inspiring your own self is the art of expressing yourself. When you are able to express yourself through a medium of art, you will find a powerful version of you. And thus, you inspire yourself.

Creativity helps us to channelize our thoughts, our emotions. Maybe you are bearing the void inside, maybe you are unable to say something you wanted to tell the world. When you express yourself in a creative way, you inscribe the unspoken story and unsaid words into your art. You pour the heart and thus, the artwork becomes a soul collage of you. Your creation becomes a glimpse of you.

This way, you learn the art of loving yourself. Because when you express yourself, you find a new version of you. A powerful one. It’s like, an untold story of you is being told in a creative way. And this way, you come to know that you are special, you are unique in your own way. Absolutely.


We all have something to celebrate within.

When you express yourself through the medium of art, that piece of art becomes a masterpiece. For in every stroke of the brush, there lies your hidden emotion. What you can’t say, can’t spell. But you spell it magically with your art.

 

 

Expressing yourself helps you to learn the art of letting go the past, to embrace the present moment with all its glory. And thus, you can prepare yourself for a better tomorrow.

20200604_115150_0000

Today, do one thing to express yourself. Be it music, or dance, or drama, or painting. It can be writing your daily journal, or maybe it can be something you left years ago. Pick that thing today, pick your lost piece of the soul collage. And start expressing yourself with every bit of it.

Flow with it. Rediscover your wings. Heal the pain, forget the past. Let it go.

Then, smile, inhale deeper, and promise yourself to come back with this newly found euphoria. Here, once again. Repeat the process and inscribe yourself on the notebook of life.
When you step towards the creative journey of expressing yourself, you walk into the celebration called “Inspire Yourself”.

Inspiring yourself is the first step towards inspiring the world. Be your own sunshine, be your own inspiration. Inspire yourself, inspire the world.
