O | The O letter words you should pay more attention to

Observe yourself and the world around you. There are valuable lessons in observation

Be Original – at least sometimes in your thoughts and expressions. You have a lot more originality that you think or display.

Only say Yes when you truly want to say Yes.

Go Out into nature once in a way. The real world is more beautiful than the virtual world

Switch Off (your phone, TV, for a few minutes every day). It can be one the best gifts to yourself

Our is a powerful word. Use it more often. In most instances, it is better than I – I speak from experience here J:)

Be sure to fully Own your time, your dreams, your passions and your life. They are yours. Claim them / Re-claim them. A journey / war that is well worth it

Once in a way, invest in yourself – doing what you really want to and love it, especially important once you turn 30 or get married or become parents

Open your mind and life to new thoughts and experiences – No matter what age or stage of life you are in. It can make all the difference

N | Say "NO NO NO" – Loud and Clear.. For what?

One of the most powerful words in the English language is this two-letter word “NO”. A simple, clear and assertive “NO” has the power to transform any life. And yet, many of us are guilty of using this word so very sparingly. Many of us just cannot get ourselves to say NO. The words just fail to come out.

I wonder why it is so hard to say “No”? We want to say “No” to him / her / them, and we end up saying “Yes” to all of them. I think it usually is the compound effect of one’s upbringing, one’s social conditioning, one’s own fears and inhibitions on the repercussions of saying NO based on past personal experiences and the experiences of others around you.

And here’s the real thing | In saying “YES” to everyone all the time, you ends up saying “NO” to yourself every single time. Is it really worth it? I don’t think so.

Once in a way, say “YES” to yourself and “NO” the others. It is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.

So what should anyone say NO to do?

Say NO to people and situations which make you feel small

Say NO to people which are critical / judgmental of everything you do

Say NO to what takes you away from what you truly want in life

Say NO to people who make you validate your existence every single say

Say NO to negativity in any way or form – be it your own thoughts, feelings, words and deeds or others feelings, words and deeds

Say NO who shake and break your self-confidence

Say NO to those who made you sad

Say NO to what makes you feel guilty and sorry every other day

Say NO to what drains your energy (in a not so nice way)

Say NO to what you believe is wrong

Say NO to being exploited

Say NO to any kind / form of abuse

Say NO to what you believe is wrong

Say NO to hurt

Say NO to pain

Say NO to fear

Say NO to "Yes"... sometimes so you can say "Yes" to yourself

 No is a complete sentence and so often we forget that.
When we don’t want to do something we can simply smile and say no.
We don’t have to explain ourselves, we can just say “No”.
Early on my journey I found developing the ability to say no expanded my ability to say yes and really mean it.
My early attempts at saying no were often far from graceful but with practice even my no came from a place of love.
Love yourself enough to be able to say yes or no

M | 3 M's which make the world go round and round

OK.. So I've been mulling over what are the 3 M's which make the world go round..   

(1) Money
Yes! Whether we like it or not. Money is an incredible power and force which truly makes the world go round. Money can be the cause for many beautiful creations and also the cause of several worldly destruction's. Money can make or break dreams, hopes, people, lives, families, communities, countries, nations and societies. Money can create divide, money can unite. Money can mend bridges and break them too. Money can conquer and money can conquest.
Yes! Money can do a lot of things.. And it surely plays a role in making the world go round and round

(2) Marriage
Marriage is that one institution which has existed from time immemorial. Marriage is the foundation on which history was made. Marriage is also the cause for history to be unmade. Marriages are the reason and cause we exist. Marriage is the cause for societies to thrive and flourish. Marriages is also the cause for perish! Marriage is the cause of happiness, good change and new beginnings. Marriages are also the cause of sadness, bad change and closures & endings.
And so Yes! Marriages can do a lot of things.. And they surely play a role in making the world go round and round

(3) Magic
Magic or that "special something" which you can't put your finger on, you can't spot, you can't define, you can't fully understand, you can't see - But you can feel and experience. The magic in the air, The magic within you, The magic of that force.. It exists! It is the answer to what science cannot fully explain, the mind cannot fully rationalize and one can never truly understand!
Yes! The Magic exists. Call it what you want. But it surely plays a role in making the world go round and round. You and Me exist because of this Magic

L | 5 Most Important L's of LIFE

Start of a new week. A to K down. Wow! And it is time for "L". L is an easy word to write about - I mean there are just so many things which are integral to us and L - Life, Like, Love, Loss, Limits, Longing, Leaning, Laughing, Lessons, Listen, Left(-over, -ist,-feet), Light  - I mean you can write anything.

But in continuining with the "spirit of my theme", here I am pondering over what are the most important L’s of LIFE? Those L’s which govern your life, which create your present, which drive your future and which determine your ultimate destiny?

1) Love a little
Love is one of the most beautiful, powerful and transformational human emotion. If you are in a state of "Love", life is beautiful. So what to Love? Love yourself, your family, your friends, your institutions, your body, your mind, your heart, your past, your present, your home, your environment, your gifts, your talents, your education, your job, your spirit, your unique gifts, your dreams, your food, your sleep, your success, your failure, your laughs, your tears.. Love just about everything!

2) Learn a lot
Being a continuous and lifelong learner is one of the most important gifts you can bestow on yourself. And you can learn just about anything you want, and from just about anyone you think is qualified to teach you. Simply because continuous learning is such a rewarding and fulfilling experience in the journey of life. As you learn new things, you expose your mind, thoughts, emotions, dreams and life to new openings, new possibilities, new opportunities, new ideas, new harbingers. And hence it is important to make learning everyday a priority and a habit in your life.

3) Laugh a little
Laugh a little laugh everyday. It goes a long way in keeping you healthy, balanced, in control of things and equips you to see an alternative slice of life. Whatever makes you laugh, just spend 5 minutes doing it everyday

4) Live a lot
Live life - Truly experience what life has to offer. Good, Bad and Ugly. Take it in, Make it yours.. In this very moment. The present is all you've got! So truly Live it!

5) Let Live
Let others around you live. Live in peace, live with themselves and live with their beliefs and live to be happy! Don't judge, don't criticize and don't try to influence. Just let them be, like you'd like to Be!

So, what is your "L" view? Leave a comment to let me know

The Escape and The Escapist

I’m questioned
My questions answered
What do I do?

I’m cornered
I’m stopped
I’m unsure
I’m scared
What do I do?

I’m speechless
I’ve too much to say
I’m emotional
I’m unable to emote
What do I do?

I’m sad
I’m happy
I’m teary eyed
What do I do?

I see something I should not
I hear something I should not
I say something I should not
What do I do?

They laugh at me
I laugh back at them
Then, what do I do?

They ridicule me
I ridicule them right back
Then, what do I do?

They cheat me
I cheat them right back
Then, what do I do?


Why do I ESCAPE?
Because I don’t want to face the reality
Because I don’t want to face people
Because I don’t want to know the truth
Because I don’t want to face myself
Because I don’t want to hear the bad and ugly
Because I don’t want the judgment
Because I don’t want the advice
Because I don’t want the comparisons
Because I don’t want to hear the criticism
Because I want to breathe
Because I want to be
