The Unconditional Love

#Blog6                                                                                                                          Dated: 24/11/2013

Our parents, the most selfless human beings on this planet are the people whose contributions in our lives go unnoticed most of the time.

We teenagers in our lives concentrate on the things that fascinates us a lot. We want to hang out, go for movies, play and shop and do everything that makes us feel great. Sometimes we get carried away with people around us. We get tied in the game of superiority. If she has it, I got to have it. If you are getting a lot of attention then the others crave for it. They get jealous. So you got to maintain yourself.

All this while do you realize who are the people that help you get all the stuff you want as and when you ask for it? You want to have new clothes, you want to look cool so that you get along with other so called cool guys around and you don’t want to feel left out. Who helps you with all of these?  #Parents.

It’s awful that we take them for granted. We demand things from them. They get it for us but sometimes they couldn’t. We get pissed off. Our parents are still the same. This is their selfless love. This is what makes us feel at home when we are actually home. We are comfortable here. We can do anything we want. We live peacefully and do whatever we want here. After a long tiring day we want to go back home. Why home? Why is it so peaceful there? Do you realize what parents do for you even when you don’t realize that they are actually doing it? Oh god, I love them so much.

My dad gets scared when I freak out with things around me. He tries to explain me the universal truths of life and the benefits of being peaceful. Freaking out is like self destruction. Why do you want to do that for yourself? You love yourself and your parents love you too.

My mom is the most wonderful person I’ve ever met. She sometimes leaves me awestruck. From waking us up from the bed till we get back to sleep she is right there for us like all the time. She prepares my breakfast, my lunch, worries about whether we had it properly, worries about my health. She couldn’t eat, sleep or do anything for a whole day when she knew I was unable to breathe properly when I got up one morning.

Our parents do so much for us. Isn’t it petrifying? Whatever we try doing for them is just so less! But still we can do a small thing. Have an attitude of Gratitude. Say thanks. Realize what they do for you to make every second of your life go with no hindrance. Tell them you love them. Trust me they are dying for a simple gesture of yours.

Be happy and spread the happiness around. Hasta la vista Niggers! You make me proud.

All Things Bright And Beautiful

#Blog5                                                                                                                          Dated: 21/11/2013

There is one truth common in everyone’s life. People come, people go. No matter how close we are to them and no matter what we do for them, one day when you wake up to find them gone. Why?

 Let’s face the universal truth. People move on. They go for things and people who make them feel better. They start accepting the love they think they deserve. 

I love making friends. I simply love to. Learning new things, talking about random stuff and feeling happy about it. They come to add the amazing moments in my life.  Life is all about appreciating their presence. Life is too short for complaints. We feel sad when we don’t get the required attention from the person we love. And doing stuff with that thought in mind will eventually make you lose the person. We fear about fights, they will arise. We fear hatred and hence we face the same.

A person’s distinguished only with two things: their thoughts and actions; and rest is the same. So we must do a simple thing.  Start appreciating instead of complaining. A person is like a flower. We love them. But if we pick them up they die and it ceases to be what you love. Love is not possession. Love is Appreciation.

Just imagine a world in which everybody appreciates. Life would have been so simple. It’s just that we choose to make it complicated. We have one life. Show that person how much you love them. Get them roses. Do things you want to do for them now. Do not be hesitant.  Keep no regrets.

Don’t hate, appreciate. Be simple. Be petrified with all things bright and beautiful. Peace out!

The Mayonnaise Jar

#Blog4                                                                                                                          Dated: 09/11/2013

     Sometimes we get so busy with our lives that we get carried away with what life brings for us. Just in case you are one of them, I wanted to share a story with you.

When things in your life seem, almost too much to handle,
When 24 Hours in a day is not enough,
Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class 
and had some items in front of him.
When the class began, wordlessly,
He picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar
And proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students, if the jar was full.
They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured
them into the jar.   He shook the jar lightly.
The pebbles rolled into the open Areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full.  They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.
Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.'
This is WORTH spending 2 mins to read.

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively
filling the empty space between the sand.  The students laughed.

'Now,' said the professor,   as the laughter subsided,
'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things - family,
children, health, Friends, and Favorite passions – 
Things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, Your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, house, and car.

The sand is everything else --The small stuff.

'If you put the sand into the jar first,'  He continued,
there is no room for  the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff,
You will never have room for the things that are important to you.


Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Play With your children.
Take time to get medical checkups.
Take your partner out to dinner.

There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

'Take care of the golf balls first --
The things that really matter.
Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.'

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.

The professor smiled.
'I'm glad you asked'.

It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,
there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.'

A good story right? Now I think of The Mayonnaise Jar and prioritize things well. Let's understand our lives better. Together. Good day!
