EMBRACE EACH MOMENT

IMG_1967
Have you ever wished your life could be like a movie? The soft music in the background. Intense, when appropriate. Scripted words for each situation. Conflicts solved in under 2 hours. A fairy tale ending!

But life isn’t like that. It’s messy. We don’t have perfect reply. In fact there is nothing called as ‘happily ever after’. Movies and books make us want something that doesn’t exist.

Seize those moments that take our breath away. Those where soft music would be apt in the background. The ones we cherish in our hearts forever. Put those in special memory box inside. We all have one. But it has storage limit. Use it wisely 😉

It’s a simple choice. To hold on to bad memories or good. You can’t have both because bad will consume you and drown the good.

Cherish the moments and put them in your memory box. Don’t cover the space with bad memories for there will be no room for the good.

Take time to enjoy the sunset on the way or dance in the rain. Embrace each moment for life has no Ctrl+z!

MOTHER AND SON

The first relationship a son will ever have is with his mother. A well-bonded child does better emotionally, behaviorally, academically and demonstrates resistance to peer pressure.

A mother teaches emotional intelligence to her son, which ultimately ensures that he can not only understand his own feelings, but also can be compassionate to others. This opens a space to teach him the power of intimacy, which ultimately leads to happiness in all relationships.

A son in late adolescence needs emotional support from his mother. He needs that hug and kiss on his cheek, that restores him, no matter what’s going on in his life.

Behind every successful man, there is a controlling mother. By constant communication with him, she promotes his emotional intelligence. Because of this, he has better friendships and close relationships, which help him have a happy life.

Salute to all the mothers. And Happy Mother’s Day!

LIVE YOUR DASH

The other day I was reading a quote, ‘Your life is made of two dates and a dash. Make the most of the dash’. And it got my attention!

Life is a struggle, neither comfortable nor safe; always moving a second towards death. No one will understand our journeys. We’re here to live our lives and not to make everyone understand.

We’re born and we die. What we do in the dash either echoes in eternity or will be forgotten the moment we die.

What we build, what we love,
What we’ve lived for,
And what we’re willing to die for!

Never settle for less than what we’re capable of, and regret in the end.

Unless we step out of the comfort zone; unless we step ourselves up for failure, we’ll never live life the way it’s meant to be lived.
We’ve one life. One chance.

Make the most of the dash and make it count!
