2021 will only be happy if you are :P Fri, Dec 7

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year 🎇

So we keep talking about happiness and how we need to train our minds to be happy, but the question remains, what is happiness 🤔


Tell me if you agree or disagree,

Happiness is a state of mind and is not dependent on people or situations.

And, to lead a happy life we don’t need to do anything extra, but whatever we do- breathe, eat, exercise, work, relax, explore- be mindful & grateful. 🙌


“A disciplined mind leads to happiness, and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering.” Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness


So what plans for this weekend?

There's this serene Kheoni wildlife sanctuary just 130 km from Indore that is home to 125 species of 🕊, 🐆 and commonly found carnivores & herbivores.

Where else can you chill...Gulawat valley, 40 km from Indore is this beautiful lake filled with lotus🌷


Now let's see what your new year is filled with 😎.

Let’s play a happy silly game...the first 3 words you see might define your new year :P

Whatever we see, it will only define us if we work for it. Let's find our happiness, we deserve it 🍻


Love,

P.S. How are you progressing in your pursuit of happiness?

Don’t confuse this laughing with coughing 🎅

So it’s the last week of 2020; breathing a sigh of relief, are we?

The year passed away in a jiffy, but what a crazy, eventful year. A lot of losses, a lot of learning and a whole lot of ❤.


So what was the 1 resolution that you took at the beginning of 2020 and saw it through? And, what is your resolution for 2021?

Whatever it is, make sure it involves happiness and wellness.


Coming to wellness, a few of us attended ‘Beyond Breath’ and here are my 2 learnings

  1. We should be mindful of our actions  

  2. Whatever we do, do it consistently


Well, I have a question, not that any of you reply to me :P, but if you think about what I have to say, it’s half the battle won. 


We aspire to do so many things and sometimes it is time, sometimes laziness, sometimes other important things that we keep using as an excuse to postpone it


WHY?

You want to do it for yourself, so what’s stopping you 🤔


Let’s do an exercise, I’ve written 2 things in 'Small Steps To Happiness' I always wanted to do but somehow it doesn’t reach my priority list. Now it’s your turn, just 2 things and how do you plan to achieve it. 

Tip: Write small goals; they are easier to achieve :P


💡BTW, did you recognise your Secret 🎅?


So last time I asked you to share pictures of what adds to your happiness. 

We've got some love from Mohit Mehroliya & Mona Gupta

Every week Mohit and his friends get together for a cricket match. And Mona loves gardening.

Exercise, friends, commitment, efforts, greens...all add up to happiness.

What adds to your happiness? Share.


Till then, tis the season to be jolly

Wishing you & your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a Happy & Prosperous New Year 🎄 🍻 🎉


Be kind, spread cheer, live well 🤗

you’re good at; world needs; rewarding?

So we’re talking about IKIGAI 🙌

It’s what you do, every day, that’s meaningful to you & others. 


The Ikigai map has 4 directions to follow

  1. Do what you love

  2. Do what you’re good at

  3. Do what the world needs

  4. Do what you can be rewarded for


We all have an Ikigai, we just have to look deeper to find it. Let's start by understanding

  • You are not your job, you are your work.

  • Take your pleasure seriously.

  • When you find things that you enjoy, do them.

So what do you enjoy, what adds to your happiness?


Send us your picture of your happy moments, be it reading 📚, trying your hands at cooking 🍲, playing a sport🏈 , exercising, gardening, working...anything that adds up to your happiness, helps you find your everyday purpose 😎


Are you happy in this moment?

Remember, life is just a collection of moments. Take action :P


Love,

दिवाली कब आयी कुछ पता ही नहीं लगा!


Everyone has these same sentiments, it’s such a different kind of Diwali this year. ✨

But what we all are missing is, we are with our loved ones, happy & safe & celebrating in whatever best way we can. 🙌

We are fighters, adapters, we can mold ourselves in ways we never thought possible. This Diwali let’s all do our bit of making it beautiful for others. 

Consider the needs of people, animals & nature and keep it an eco-friendly Diwali 🎇


आपको और आपके परिवार को Walkover परिवार की और से दीपावली की हार्दिक शुभकामनाये 🙏🤗🌟

Spread cheer & share love!

Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful woman with her moral husband & her courageous bro-in-law. An intelligent egoistic man fell for the woman and due to his one vice, he is still put at an altar every year & torched. 🔥👹💥

Is it ever said- it happened because of the woman’s beauty;

We all agree- it was the man’s fault;

So why in today’s world- it is the women that are blamed? 


The most hurtful thing is that even women like to put other women down.

Ladies, we rise by lifting others! ✨


We celebrate & worship women during Navratri, but it is the same women we disrespect every other day in so many forms.


She is powerful yet she seeks your validation,

she has needs yet she keeps your needs ahead of her,

she is wild yet she keeps herself tamed.


It is not about how you treat women outside, it begins from your very own home, how you treat the woman sitting infront of you.🙌

When things change inside you, things change around you :)


So it’s the time of the year to put all evils at end, including the cobwebs 🕸 :P bring out all your brooms & paintbrushes & get cleaning. 👔

How’s your सफाई अभियान going 😰 


Now that we all are home, parents, partners all would expect you to lend a hand. Don’t worry, we have a few tips & tricks for easy cleaning.


Also, this is the time of the year we all go all out for shoppings, celebrations, make the most out of the festive season, but as we all know

घर पर रहे सुरक्षित रहे & if stepping out you know what to do :P

और हा Modiji बोलके गए ना- 'जब तक दवाई नहीं, तब तक ढिलाई नहीं।


What is important is not to fight, but to fight the right enemy. Fight your own evil!

May the 9 avatars of Maa Durga bless you with 9 qualities – power, happiness, humanity, peace, knowledge, devotion, name, fame, health.


Happy Vijayadashami 🎆

Que tal ✋


Let’s share secrets! 🕶


Most of us are looking for a secret. Can you guess what? Right


The secret to SUCCESS. 🙌


Have you ever thought about what success means to you? 

  • Is it an x amount of money

  • A certain position 

  • Some aspirations 

  • Reputation

  • Helping around


Success holds different meanings for different people, your idea of success might be different than your friend’s & so on. But here we are talking success in the relation to work.


And here’s what “successful people” say is the secret to success.


  1. Passion 

  2. Ideas

  3. Work

  4. Focus

  5. Persist

  6. Push

  7. Serve

  8. Value


So it’s not one or two but it’s all eight qualities that work together.😎 Let’s look for what we are missing & work towards it. 


So now that the secret is out, let’s talk about how are we stepping out?

We all know what to do, but just a reminder 😬

Wear a mask, carry a sanitiser, maintain distance.


So about distance- you know, “distance doesn’t separate people, silence does.
Talk things out- this is one of my secrets too 😉 I say what I feel and this weekend I feel like some extra care.


Be kind to yourself. Don’t punish yourself for not going for that run or being too busy to finish what you started.🤗

Bonjour you lovely people!

Bonjour you lovely people!

What's up?


First of all sorry for keeping you waiting 🙏 (I hope you were :P). Started with something & it got a little serious 🙃 then this thought popped up💡 & here we are 😇


So let's get to the question. Whom are you living with?

I’m talking thing & not people. ✋


INSECURITY


Well, we all feel insecure- about our health, our relationships, our financial standing, our way of conducting things… it can be about anything & it is real & disturbing.


But we are smart people, 😎 deep down we know what we are insecure about, but are we wise?

Do we understand that this insecurity we are living with is hurting us & maybe also the people around us?


Wanted to share an article or a video that could help, but realised

My insecurity- only I can uplift myself.

The question is, do I want to? 


I’ve heard a lot of people saying “Oh, I’m so worried about this thing. I’m stressed”

Again a question- how is your being worried about something solving the problem? 🤔

Ask yourself- are you a narrow thinker? Talking more about problems & less about the solution.

Well too many questions...but there’s one more


एक सवाल जो सबके मन में उठ रहा है 

Where is the Professor?

Busy planning a new heist :P


Have you seen Money Heist? A must watch & also Cobra Kai, both available on Netflix.


Okay going back to questions- there’s one more answer to the question I asked first (the one in the subject line & now its people) 😛

Our loved ones, especially our elders.


Not many are able to step out of the house and also not much to do at home. Let’s talk more with our elders, spend time, involve them in whichever ways we can because being alone is good, but loneliness isn’t. 


Create a good support structure! 🙌


Love,
