Rahul is dealing with personal issues and while he's growing he's confused. Often when he does something wrong he's wondering that it's always surrounding his self respect. Even if it's about saying sorry or taking responsibility of things in life. It's his ego that isn't allow him to do that but he's calling it self respect. But isn't there a thin line between ego and self respect. So next time when you don't admit anything or think twice to apologize for something. Ask yourself it's your ego or self respect talking
When I was in school I thought good marks will sort my life, in college I thought that being in best university will and at work I consoled myself thinking that a good pay cheque would sort my life. Today as I earn well I still feel incomplete. The 26 yr old is confused and exhausted.
Talking to his dad he's sharing his pain. His dad interrupted, "I know your job is making you rich, but are you satisfied?
To which he answers, I thought money makes life easy but all my 4-5 years of career I didn't even celebrate my birthday, festivals. I sometimes don't even get to see you guys dad and I hv not slept well past so many years. It's like a constant struggle. I am on client calls while eating and sometimes even while walking to office and coming back. Even after all the hardwork and money I feel I am missing everything. Dad offers his son water and asks him to breathe. My child, no money, college or grades can satisfy you till you sit down and ask yourself the real definition of success for you. Till you know what your aspirations and expectations are and what you love to do what is your ikigai
Life has different meaning for different people and everyone is different and may have different priorities. There are so many people earning very less but happily spend time with family and are living a statisfied life. You can be part of the rat race. Learn to talk to yourself and ask yourself what you want from life.
Take your time and don't take life too seriously.Grades or earnings are part of life don't make them your life. Learn to be easy with yourself and understand that your just a small part of this universe. Don't be too harsh on yourself and when needed learn to slow down and just enjoy your own company. You will find all your answers.
Hope you like it. Am not a professional writer am learning. Lots of love Prerna Avasthi
There is nothing as beautiful and wonderful as nature.
"Today let's get lost in nature."
You naturally heal yourself as you sit quietly in nature but sit with nature without a watch or gadget. Water the plants in your garden today and smell the earth. Absorb the smell of grass and leave your slippers and walk on the grass. Hug a tree for talk to trees. Smell the flower don't plug but pick a flower that's fallen and with that little soil on it smell if and put it in your hair. Feel the beauty and nature. Be thankful to the creator for giving you eyes and making. Today sit with trees and enjoy the company. Walk in street filled with dried leaves. Don't rush it today spent it today. And let it flow.
Did you know that everything you post says a lot about you and your personality. It even attracts energy. I am a believer of the thought.So like any random day I posted today on my Instagram,
"May this day bring you healing and positivity."
To which some replied, But why someone commented on her story. "Am not ill that I need healing."
I read the comment and smiled.Healing has so much depth but we humans are so dedicated towards out gadgets that we don't want to go deep into our souls. Only ill humans need healing. I feel sad listening to those words. Do you only brush your teeth when you get cavity? You don't. Why would you only heal and spend time doing self care and self love when your witnessing something. Why not practicing in routine. We want to bundle up the negative thoughts and sickness or stress that we carry of the social world and lives till it's not worse. Isn't that ridiculous. Healing is something that everyone needs. Everyone should practice and bring in daily routine. Because you deserve self love and care. Spend time healing and be ready to deal with anything that comes your way.
I wish I was told I shouldn't take myself too seriously on my bad days. Pushing myself was important but stressing wasn't needed. After things do fall in place with time. No matter how bad things were. Feel like I didn't live those years. I didn't live my life and took all of it too seriously.I shouldn't have but that isn't something I teach my daughter. It's not important to win win. It's important to learn and evolve. It's important to be grateful with whatever you have and to be a good human. Intentions and evolving matters. So when my young girl (7 years old)walks up to me showing her tree on her drawing sheet that isn't as perfect as her friends drawing. I tell her it's beautiful. You tried my love and that matters.
Today don't take yourself too seriously and flow like water,Come what may"
Kids were feeling very low in lockdown and isn't it natural. I don't remember one summer vacation,where I was home. We use to play all day in sand,outdoors and find ways to do literally anything that annoyed mom. Was it the same with you? After the Sushant Sir's investigation or maybe since Corona we ain't watching news on tv as it may impact kids. But today as the kids watched lights and beautiful view in ayodhya the same joy and smile that had lost somewhere in lockdown came back. We watched news after so long.My little ones are curious to know how we'll light diyas tomorrow. They hv finally got some activity. But honestly nothing makes me happy but seeing my little one smile. They do messl the house and increase my household chores but they are making memories,lot of them.
Today it felt like "It was like lord Ram has finally arrived. " Loved the view. Sending you love and Positivity Prerna Avasthi
