#WhatSongsTaughtUs

My Best Life – KSHMR ft Mike Waters


KSHMR stated the following, for the reason behind this song, “talking about social media and how it’s become a tool for measuring ourselves. We talked about how it can be freeing to submit to the fact that somebody will always have nicer things / more money / etc and from there the lyrics came together”

Mike Waters also shared a few words following the same video as KSHMR, where the singer stated: “[KSHMR] and I wrote this song about being grateful for what you have – it can be hard to see people more successful than you (…) but if you don’t stop and appreciate what you have then it can really eat you up. (…) Be happy for those who made it work for them but most importantly be happy for yourself, and appreciate the position you’re in. (…) You get one life, but it’s yours, and you can make it whatever you want.”

The thing about Streaks (Part 2)

The thing about Streaks (Part 2)

(What do streaks mean and about my current streaks – mentioned in the blog post ‘The thing about Streaks Part 1)

The thing about streaks – you carry on for days and now it’s instilled as a habit too. However, a situation arises when a gap occurs or you feel like taking the weekend off.

In such a scenario, you cannot pause it and resume it.

You have to restart it.

Start again from Day 0 and build it up from there.

That’s the only way to maintain discipline and instill that habit to your lifestyle from the long-term perspective of your life.

Never Stop Learning

Never Stop Learning

• Never Stop Learning •
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Education is limited, learning is not.

In order to grow as a person, to evolve, to upgrade to a higher version of yourself, you need to keep learning!

Learn something
– new
– different
– and, everyday!

It could be in any form – written, audio, video – either consumption on the internet, or having conversations with like-minded people, whatever suits you best.

That’s the key – Never Stop Learning!

Walk your own path!

Walk your own path!

Only the achievements are compared, not the goals or the aspirations or the journey or the day-to-day life!

It’s simply astonishing how the society works!

The best way to move forward in life is to follow your Journey and stay in your lane!

Can’t get any simpler than that!

Celebrate others successes instead of dwelling over them!
Support them in their failures instead of enjoying them!
To top it off, walk with others instead of trying to trample them!

We are an amalgamation of

We are an amalgamation of

Who we are.

Who we become.

What we think.

Where does it all come from?

Certainly not from a bunch of books taught to us during school or college.

We are an amalgamation of every person we meet in our lifetime, every experience we have, every activity we are a part of, our conversations, what we read, what we observe around us.

It all affects us.

We are a sum total of all that.

Heartbeats

Heartbeats

Have you ever noticed how the heart beats?

It never beats in a straight line, because that would simply mean you are dead!

It beats upwards and downwards (the heart rate increases and decreases), which means the heart is beating regularly – that’s how it’s supposed to beat.

It also means you’re living.

Our lives work in the same way. However, no one notices it.

If you do the same thing everyday, without any change, for the good or the bad, it resembles the heart beating in a straight line.

Life is about ups and downs. Whenever there’s a down, it also means that you’re going to rise from it and be at the top again.

It also means that you won’t stay at the top for long, and there’ll be a down soon and you should be ready for it instead of being stressed about it or dwell about it when it happens.

Live your life the same way your heart beats!

Self-improvement Goals

Self-improvement Goals

“Canceling plans to read is ok. Skipping a party for the gym is ok. Staying home to cook is ok. Let’s encourage it and respect self-improvement.” – Chance the Rapper

Upgrading to a better version of ourselves should be the goal!

Whatever makes us happy should be the goal!

Not what makes other happy! Not what is part of the culture! Not what is “supposed to be done”!

You want to improve yourself? Spend your time on the right things which will make you learn more.

Let’s respect and encourage #SelfImprovement!
