How majority of humans used to behave, almost until a month back to now everyone being the same – more or less, and hopefully we make these changes a part of our life, instead of it just being a temporary phase of life.
Life has a funny way of teaching us lessons, don’t you think so?
No more materialistic comparisons,
no more competition,
no more ego,
doesn’t matter who you are,
doesn’t matter how rich or poor you are,
Life has brought everyone to a common level of humanity, where everyone wants to just stay alive.
Everyone is fighting together and wants to come out of this together.
This level of humanity should be appreciated and should be taken forward as well, because when we walk together, we grow together and we can tackle our problems together!
When a wave appears, no matter how big or small, when it hits the coast, it makes a splash and it passes.
Similarly, from time to time, we experience unwanted occurrences in life too, internally and externally. Mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
We wonder, why me?
Why is this happening to me?
We need to realize two things here…
One, the waves are going to appear in your life, time and again to test you, whether you can stand in your path or not. Sometimes bigger than ever.
You need to stay patient, true to yourself, in order to stand through that wave.
Second, it’s going to pass.
Nothing in life stays forever.
Unless you let it stay.
Unless, that’s not happening, whatever it is, is going to pass.
We work; we try; we experiment; we fail; we succeed; we learn.
Although, do you know what happens?
9 out of 10 times things may not happen the way we expected it to.
And that’s okay!
That’s the beauty of life!
Life doesn’t give you always what you wanted…
It’s that one time when you succeed, you get what you wanted, you reach your expectations.
That’s the one you got to remember.
That one pushes you to try another 10 times, out of which, yet again 9 out of 10 times things might not go your way.
Whenever it comes to conveying something, either in the form of writing, speaking or any form of communication, the best way to convey it is being to the point.
There is certainly no need to stretch out a topic because time is of the essence – for you and for the one who’s consuming your content.
If it is short and sweet, and yet to the point, it’s a win-win situation for everyone. Isn’t it?
I have been writing blogs on a daily basis for a year now and this is blog no. 365!
Do you know what it means?
Today, I complete One Year of Blogging, having never missed a day!
Whilst writing, I’ve come across some really interesting ideas/ thoughts which I’m sure, if not for blogging, couldn’t have been penned down the way it happened now.
Which brings me to the highlight of today’s blog post, because providing value on a daily basis is the base of why I do what I do.
If, after one year of every day blogging, I had to sum up my learning from it, it’d be the following –
- Daily blogging has widened my thought process in a way, that I’m able to concentrate on my thoughts better than before and write more freely on a topic that I think is important to talk about.
- Talking about writing freely, one of the most important learning was my writing process. To be honest, I wasn’t good at the writing stuff, the grammar, the vocabulary, the punctuation, the sentence formation – there’s a lot to think about when it comes to writing.
However, writing on a daily basis has opened it up for me and now, I’m more confident about it than ever before.
- All of this has also allowed my creative channels to open up – try to think more creatively while writing, how can a certain topic be said in a different manner so it brings more value than, if said directly.
- Also, having kept a scheduled time to post before, and without failing to post on a daily basis, it has also allowed me to develop a creative discipline within me which doesn’t have the space for “creative blocks” or “mental blocks”, because at the end of the day, I know what I have to share and I cannot back out of it.
- Lastly, it brings so much value to the people, the way they respond after reading something – it’s extremely joyful to know that your writing has made a difference to someone’s life.
Blogging is fun and no matter how many trends or platforms change and evolve, text as a medium of communication will never change and something like blogging is here to stay!
Thank you to everyone who take the time out to read these blogs, either on a regular basis, or even a particular one, once in a blue moon, when it seems imteresting to them. I’m ever grateful to all of you.
Keep reading, keep enjoying!
Your feedback is always valuable.
Cannot wait for blog no. 3600 in 10 years!
Our mind is so unique and can be used for hundreds of thousands of different things!
We control it.
We can use it to our advantage.
Everything that we do, in our life, in our day, all begins from the mind.
You tell your mind what you want to do next, and it does that for you.
Be it controlling your body functions for a certain task to controlling your thoughts to focus on a specific topic.
Everything begins from the mind.
We shouldn’t let it overpower us; but we should overpower it – use it a tool to live life, to enjoy life, to be happy in life, to grow in life. Its all linked with the mind.
If you want to live life,
If you want to grow,
If you want to succeed,
If you want to be happy,
You have to learn to be alone with your thoughts!
Your thoughts convert into questions you didn’t know you wanted to ask yourself.
Your thoughts convert into answers you didn’t know you could answer!
Your thoughts open you up; show you the path; get you of the rut you may be in – all answers lead to you being alone with your thoughts and listening to them and understanding them.
The problem is people can’t be alone with themselves; even when they are, they aren’t alone alone.
You get what I’m saying?
One tends to end up on the social media platforms, watching a video or maybe productively reading a book or listening to a podcast (maybe).
However, you still aren’t alone with your thoughts!
Most of the times, people are scared to be.
They don’t know how to do so!
They don’t know what will happen!
If you don’t try, you won’t learn, you won’t experience the results.
Your thoughts are so powerful, they can make you or break you.
