Whom are you living with :P Fri, Sep 25

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! 🙌

The world is full of influencers, choose yours wisely :P Fri, Sep 11

भियो, असल परीक्षा तो अब है!

🙏


भियो, असल परीक्षा तो अब है!

Time to pay full attention to every aspect of our doing and well-being. 


Simple शब्दों में, we should get really conscious, mindful and even sceptical. We all know what to do to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe, healthy and happy. 🙃


So there’s a rise in road rage, गुस्सा, frustration and if some of us also are feeling the same...

Guys just chill माड़ी!


Try 4-7-8, it actually relaxes the mind.🤗

RELAX! Don’t adapt to the energy, influence the energy. 


Louie Zamperini said, “Never give up. No matter what”, and that’s what he did, he remained Unbroken till the end of times.


Saw this amazing movie on Netflix, based on a true story. The spirit of Olympic track star Louis Zamperini remains Unbroken.

Also, saw a series, again based on a real-life character who influenced people and their faith- Ashram. What crazy world we live in...


The world is full of influencers, choose yours wisely 🙈🙉🙊


Read an article the other day that talked about how influencers are diverting us by talking about things they want us to take notice and not what the real issue is. The writer suggested asking 2 questions

  1. Does this thing actually matter to me or my loved ones?

  2. How is it affecting me?


It did hit a chord, this is how we can work on our growth mindset. Stop getting carried away by things, people or incidences.

So, next time whatever you’re doing or thinking about, ask these 2 questions and you can try to shift your focus on what matters to you.


And what is it that matters the most to you? This might tell you a thing or two. 


Eat healthily, exercise your mind & body, choose happiness & stay safe 🙏


Love,

गणपती बप्पा मोरिया!🙏


We all say 'गणपति बप्पा मोरिया, अगले बरस तू जल्दी आ'


And, इस बार गणेशजी आ गए, so everyone is like इस बार गणेशजी जल्दी नहीं आ गए 🤔


Btw, आप ले आये उनको 🏡 मिटटी के लाये ना?


मिट्टी की महिमा मिटने में,

मिट मिट हर बार सँवरती हैI

मिट्टी मिट्टी पर मिटती है,

मिट्टी मिट्टी को रचती हैI


बारिश का मौसम और मिटटी की खुशबू! 🙌

The Rain Gods are finally मेहरबान! But are you मेहरबान on yourself?

Sometimes to find ourselves, all we need to do is get lost and a little pampering would help not only find the zeal but also, rejuvenate and since it’s the weekend, why not pamper yourself at home 💡


Everything in life requires efforts- constantly, consistently, continually. Be it our work, health, relationships, happiness… the day we cease to put in efforts is the day we cease growing. 


“If you suffer, it is because of you, if you feel blissful, it is because of you. Nobody else is responsible — only you and you alone. You are your hell and your heaven too.”

-Osho


You are the greatest project you will ever work on- work smart, live well ✨


गणपति बप्पा मोरिया, अगले बरस तू जल्दी आ!

What you SEEK is SEEKING you! Fri, Aug 7

Albert Einstein said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.”

Ke aal lee ✋


Albert Einstein said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.” 


Over a ☕ पर चर्चा, lightning struck 💡

if we wish to, we can get experiences & gain knowledge from any situation.

So the talks were common, everyday gossip 🙈🙉🙊 :P, but the realisation was unusual.  


And the quest for self-improvement 🐒led to 14 ways to acquire knowledge.


These days everyone's on a quest- looking for ways to enhance their skills & habits. Try this fantastic idea of writing down your short-term goals & checking on it on a weekly basis 📓


But again the realisation bug stuck out :P until you are self-disciplined you cannot fully achieve your goal. The other 2 supporting pillars high emotional intelligence & a few good hours of sleep

Festival alert- approaching right ahead 📅

Eid ul-Adha 🌙 Rakshabandhan 🎁 & Friendship Day 😎🤗

The first Sunday of August is celebrated as Friendship Day & do you how it started? 
As a marketing strategy in the early 1930s. What else happened in the 1930s- it was the darkest decade.

We might say MMXX (2020) is one of the darkest years of our life, but how? Yes, things are looking bleak, but you are not alone in this, everyone you know is going through a struggle of their own. You think coronavirus has changed the world, we believe GPT 3 has changed the world. 
Don't know what it is?
For happiness we're here, for everything else, there's Google 😛

So, DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY ;)

Want to know where the problem lies? In our minds...
We believe we’ll be happy when we are successful; we just keep pushing our goals higher & higher and elude ourselves from happiness

Here’s the happy secret to happiness. (you’ll keep laughing till the end, also, learn a thing or 2 about you ;)

Learning to know yourself better- a thing or 2 as I said 🤓
  • What is the 1 quote you go by?
  • What is the 1 word that describes you best?
  • Who is the 1 person you’re missing the most now?
Go ahead, give that person a hug, a call or share a prayer 🙏

ज़ोरदार, ज़बरदस्त, full on...  
It’s festival time, celebrate it with your family & friends, stay safe & also stay happy 😉

Love,
Walkover

Ola!

Beautiful weather, light showers, long drives, eating out... all is fine until you follow precautions and stay safe 🙊

The virus is spreading at a much higher rate and it’s becoming asymptomatic 😱

MOM shared a perfect visual for it.

Can you?

We don’t know who has the virus, all we know is we should stay safe and maintain social distancing.


But, याद रखें, बीमारी से लड़ें न कि बीमर से!

Sorry, itna sun liya hai ki yehi line yaad aayi 😝


So what’s up? 


New series you want to recommend or a book or a course or share your thoughts? Let’s have a real conversation.

Okay, I’ll go first- 


I recently realised that we all are WISE in our own way. Some might be more and some might be less, but we all act according to our understanding. And, according to our own self, what we do is correct. 

There is no right or wrong. Just ways! 


What’s your thought on my आज का ज्ञान? 

Don’t get introspecting as yet, अभी और भी बहुत कुछ है…


How many of you fondly eat moringa (drumsticks or सहजन की फली)? I wasn’t too fond of it until I got to know it’s a superfood 💪 an immunity booster. The weather is just right for some amazing soup 🍜 and I know a perfect recipe.

-4-6 cut & peeled drumsticks 🌾

-1 tomato 🍅

Pressure cook it for 10 minutes with 1 cup of water. Mash & strain the liquid.

Add a dollop of butter, pinch of salt & black pepper. Serve hot.


High in iron, antioxidants, vitamin C and other nutrients, Moringa benefits include strong bone health, controlled blood pressure and more


Lovely weather, warm soup in your hands, what is missing is some amazing music🎼 This one here is a beautiful version. 

Enjoy your drink & your weekend💃


Adios Amigos✋

The foom koob hmoov rau (blessings in Hmong) 🙏 list can go on & on but the question is, how many ticks for you?


For some, the answer would be all- but does that make you happy?

 

No matter how many blessings we have until we choose to be happy we cannot be happy. Happiness is a choice that we need to make everyday 😇


Yes, we all have issues, some crisis are actually deeply disturbing and choosing happiness feels distant. But till when? As we cannot stay in an upbeat mood at all times, similarly we cannot stay in an off mood. 


No 2 days are the same and neither are our thoughts. Push your boundaries to not only think positively but act positively. Haven’t we heard- actions speak louder than words. 🤘


Act now!

 

Let’s see what else are we counting today?


It was exactly 11 months ago on July 26 that the first Happiness update was shared. Not exactly the 1st anniversary but we celebrated our tenth in a new way 🍾


Celebrating 10 years
