ACE of LIFE

I am the one holding the aces of my life in my hand.

I am deliriously happy, wonderfully content and blissfully at peace.

It’s not luck. It’s just the time after the rain.

The clouds have moved on behind me. And as I face the sun; I am stronger, happier and hopeful for my morrows.

I am no longer in search of love, peace , understanding and happiness. Because I already have it , in abundance.

Because I realised the key to win life and be a spirit of gratitude is WITHIN me.

I can change my fate, when I have a will.

Our FATE lives within us, We need to be Brave enough to see it.

I alone can set me free from all bondages of suffering.

I feel there are Three phases :

PHASE 1: When you drown into desolation, you lose hope. And you stop fighting against what is trapping you further into that dark pit. But I assure you , there is a point you reach, when it is unbearable, and you can’t take it anymore. And that’s just it. The fact that you accept that “you cant take it anymore” is enough .

PHASE 2: Do you feel that? The easing of pressure. Like a burden off you. Feeling Calm. And just like that you enter into this stage of being “numb”. No sadness or happiness. No negativity ,nor positivity. You just be there. And let the calm fill you in and out. You are pensive. You understand the phase one. And you understand that you don’t need to be sad. That you  need only you to be stronger. That you’re still breathing. And there’s something still out there worth living for.

PHASE 3: It’s when you realise there’s HOPE for something better. That life doesn’t lose it’s meaning with one lost battle. That every loss or failure counts. That it makes you better than who you were. It makes you accept the things you thought you couldn’t survive. It makes you accept that your life doesn’t move on whether you find something or lose. You realise that sometimes being without a purpose is a purpose in itself. The journey to find one. You see, at this stage you are at peace. And you smile from within. And even if life is not at its best. You are still happy (even without a reason to be).

Happiness doesn’t depend on a reason. It is an art of developing a healthy spirit.

ACCEPT THAT YOUR HAPPINESS IS AT YOUR WILL. COMMAND IT. WILL IT. LIVE IT. BREATHE IT.

ACCEPT THAT WHAT YOU THINK creates the situations of your life.

SO THINK AS YOU CREATE.

ACCEPT THAT YOU ARE THE MASTER. BE ONE. TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE.

COMMAND THE UNIVERSE TO GRANT YOUR WISH. If you want something to work, be the boss who commands , gets the work done and also does the work. 

Your life is like a project. Work on it the best you can. GIVE IT YOU’RE ALL. There’s a viva in the end. You gotta learn to answer the unasked questions and figure out how to go about with the unanswered questions. Life doesn’t end where people think it ends for you. Life doesn’t move with the number of failures or success. Life is not a mere journey from here to there, or down to top. It doesn’t matter if you are a billionaire or an extraordinarily great world-famous performer or just an ordinary person. Remember we all are born to die. So let’s be happy with the plate we have and work passionately to live our dreams.

Reality of those great successful people is that they managed to give substance and form to their dreams. It is not impossible. YOU CAN BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE , provided it’s in tune with what YOU OUGHT TO BE.

motivational-quotes-for-athletes

Life is a meaningful mystery. A gift from The Most High. And if you think you have un-wrapped it and you know what it is? You’re wrong.

Life is that gift that you keep un-wrapping till your last breath. The more you understand it, the more beautiful it gets.

It’s human enough to be considerate to those who respect you and be there for you. But pay no attention to the hypocrites who open their mouth and mind to rewind your growth. BE KIND. Even when you wish to ignore the words, REMEMBER that the {words , feelings, thoughts} and the {person} are two different aspects. Be fair as to how you treat the two. REMEMBER. Never ever believe YOU KNOW ENOUGH. Because you don’t. BE OPEN TO Every bit of knowledge you can get.

You hold the FOUR aces of your life:

ACE of HEARTs : spread the warmth of love and affection everywhere you go. Rekindle the flame in every shattered heart to love oneself above the misery. ACE of CLUBs :The clubs symbolising – Flowers -a sign of appreciation and honour when given to someone. Be a generous giver. Appreciate the things that make you smile and the things where the efforts put in are visible. It may not make you happy, but you sure can make someone happier than you know it. ACE of DIAMONDs : Be like a diamond. Don’t get tired of being polished until you shine. Even when it is tough, remember that the rough edges are being made smooth, for something better awaits. ACE of SPADEs : This one should remind you that you govern your life. That you can change anything in a mini-second ,if and only if, you will. YOU CAN WIN . Play the Ace of spades to change your life for better. It is the KEY to your FATE in you. One last thing  – a noble man I knew taught his children: If you lose WEALTH, you’ve lost NOTHING. If you lose HEALTH, you’ve lost SOMETHING. But If you lose CHARACTER, you’ve lost EVERYTHING

That’s how I want my Canvas…

And when I see it turning grey,

I look around for brighter shades,

Not soon I find the red I want,

But I keep searching , not wanting the black to haunt.

 

As soon as I find the colour pots,

I want them all to mess the grey spots,

Hide the black, fill all gaps,

Re-design my life map.

 

Oh Canvas! Oh Canvas! I want you all bright.

But if you’d show me my life,

Shouldn’t you be alike?

 

And thus, I add back the grey,

and alil of black,

And there’s my canvas

with all colours intack.

 Life-Is-A-Great-Big-Canvas

Take a step ahead.

Before you start I don’t have this and that.

Your tomorrow will never come.. You need to Stop complaining.. Stop looking for what is less and more and this and that..Stop thinking so much..
Just do it..

PAINT YOUR CANVAS JUST THE WAY YOU LOVE IT BEST.

… Remember you can’t buy the time that goes by..
Do something with your passion..

Create your opportunities rather than waiting for things to come your way or happen the way you want..

WAITING is wrong.. Your talent and capabilities are your weapon.

Be wise and use it.

Inspiration is a feeling that drives you to be a happy satisfied being.

We all need it. It adds friction or should I say fluidity to our movements in life.

Life needs to be lived in an artistic way. Live in the colours, flow in your passion, strike out and design and keep redesigning till you see the picture your mind weaves.

Our palettes are always so full, yet we complain for shades we desire not once giving a thought to what is there is actually what we deserve. We let it dry. And then we wail.

Why?

Why is it tough to appreciate what is around us, in us and within our reach?

We know we shouldn’t be looking at shut doors but we still fail to see the doors that are open and slowly closing without our knowledge.

We know what is right and what is wrong.

We know it. But the problem is WE DON’T ACT. We don’t take a step. We are too damn busy trying to figure out the meaning of our neighbour’s canvas rather than glancing at our own.

No-one will solve your problems for you. Not even GOD. Because you are given them, to learn, to grow, to embrace your fears, to become more than what you are.

Accept your palette and paint your life. Sketch it, imagine it, feel it, dream it, and finally just get yourself together and throw your colours across. Design and keep redesigning your life canvas.

Small things I feel that can give peace:

  • Don’t be a critic. But be an appreciator.
  • Don’t be proud. But be humble.
  • Don’t ask questions. But be an answer to the unanswered.
  • Don’t feel accomplished. But be hungry to grow above everything.
  • Don’t quit. Every end is a new beginning.
  • Don’t feel sorry. But learn to never repeat a mistake.
  • Don’t hesitate. But speak politely.
  • Don’t just hear. Listen.
  • Don’t expect. But be cautious.
  • Don’t imprison yourself. But always find a way to set free.
  • Don’t command obedience. But ignite the flame of inspiration.

I can go on. But the ultimate key to peace is GOD– the other name for Eternal love.

HE can help you design the most exquisite canvas.

The FOUR Ps.

– PURPOSE– PASSION – PERSEVERANCE – PATIENCE–

To walk down a road, we need to know the destination. What is it that the road we choose may lead us to?

Finding the meaning of your breath , of why you’re even alive! That’s purpose.

We aren’t totally aware of this purpose at any point of time in our entire life. Sometimes it’s as vivid as the day, sometimes it’s as dark and blurry as the night.

There’s got to be something that evokes in us a PASSION .i.e; completely undefined, something that drives us crazy enough to face all storm-winds to reach right there where we feel complete, where one purpose ends and another begins.

All we need is a small push. A channel that leads us step by step, road by road, closer and nearer to a finer purpose to live life.

Name it what you want…. goal, dream, aim, target, object, destination… anything at all. It all sums up to one thing “PURPOSE”.

A purpose that ignites the flame of passion to achieve through perseverance is what we all sought in life.

Purpose can be anything, be it small or big, upon fulfilment it gives us the same thing- satisfaction. It only grows stronger with every step we take in life. It becomes clearer as we start to understand life. It’s a growing hunger to live up-to what we are capable of.

Patience – the power of endurance. The key to be persistent enough to reach the pinnacle of our very existence.

Inside us lies a burning desire that can be kept hidden for years but one can never forget.

Everyone has at least once questioned “what purpose have I come to serve through this gift of life?”

And one of the many answers would be :

Purpose to live will never be self-destruction. And by choosing evil we do nothing else but that. And by evil I mean everything. Be it anger, hatred, violence, vices, utterance of foul words, inflicting hurt, falling prey to temptations, being judgmental, greedy, selfish, lamenting, complaining, blaming, …….and so forth.

When you open your eyes, and watch the world, observe the pain etched in every face.

There should be a part of you that wants to reach out.

To spread one smile everyday , to do good where good can be done, to leave the bad when your purpose has just begun.

To know that the climb will be painful, and you will fall no matter how much you try to be cautious. To become stronger and determined to persevere.

To believe in oneself and be persistent to fulfill the purpose.

To be passionate about the journey and foresee the hurdles and be prepared.

Life is an adventure. It’s not a jolly ride always. There are gonna be moments when you’ll hang upside down or you’ll be throw for a toss. Play you best move.

And never forget the purpose,

your inner strength- the passion,

your armour – perseverance and persistence,

your sword – patience.

Lesson 3 – The Conflict

Sometimes you have to face bitterness in life…. Everything can’t be sweet and sugary always.

“Too much sugar – Bad for health.”

Too much happiness will not make you understand the deeper meaning of life.

To understand the real meaning of one we need to learn the meaning of the opposite.

Your life can’t always have shades of red, pink , green and yellow.. you’ll have to deal with shades of black, blue, grey and brown as well.

Remember all shades together make the rainbow beautiful. How would the rainbow look with only the shades of red? No green, no yellow, no blue, no violet, no indigo? …. Weirdly not thrilling right?

Just like a rainbow gives you a smile… Smile through all the colors of your life.

You can cry over the blues…………. Hide through the blacks….. Run through the reds………….. Smile through the pinks…… Think wonderful all through the greens..

You have the color palette in your hand. Paint your life canvas the way you love it best.. Have loads of fun.. but also make your life an eventful adventure..

Make sure you get to ‘the pot of golden coins‘ at the end of your rainbow.. Cause we all do have a pot of coins awaiting us. These coins are your acts that can make you richer than the finest gold.

Act Wisely.

There is nothing wrong in being bitter to those who can’t cope with your sweetness. But why give the poison back to the poison maker? Do you really think he won’t know how to deal with such a deadly poison? Don’t make yourself the poison for others!

Why not instead you stop the over-sweetness and be the one person you are, that can drive away the poison makers– with the flare of indifference your behavior depicts and detain around you those who’s demeanor shouts loyalty?

Life is a colorful rainbow.. Drink in its beauty all that it showers over you.

Create a robustness about you that can hurtle the bitterness the world shoves your way, beneath the very ground you place your feet on.

Never bemoan of being yourself. Be proud. Stand Strong. Hit the storms headfirst. Live your life the way you feel right. But make sure the right ain’t the wrong.

Take no offense when you are being judged for free, remember you didn’t pay , neither did you ask. So don’t waste time over hypocrites and their cheap judgement, they can’t afford you.

And also don’t forget that Just Judges are the most expensive ones. And the One Above all is GOD.

Do what is righteous. Even when the right feels wrong and the wrong feels right.

What happened???

From a baby nestled in her mother’s arms
To a toddler crawling on the floor…
A toothy grin… or a wail so loud..
Thundering the neighbors’ doors.
What happened?

Like a child running all around..
Yelping, screaming or pouting …
Laughing, giggling or dancing..
Singing, dreaming and grinning..
What happened?

Crushing secretly.. sighing..
Admiring the temptations..
Tasting the fatal “Don’ts”
Oh the Teenage dramatic moans!
What happened?

Basking in the sun of youthfulness..
Growing over and above ..
Learning , changing, accepting..
Hurting, smiling, Still sailing..
What happened?

Aging in time… growing by mind..
Older we be… solving the mysteries..
Crying, grumbling, loosing faith..
Or rather- rising, smiling with courage!
What happened?

Memories rush.. everything’s hushed..
Echoing deep.. something leaps..
Agonizing puzzles.. silent storms..
Victorious glory.. happy songs..
What happened?

Don’t we all come across such moments… when we wonder:
“What the hell happened?”     “How did I reach this far?”                    “How did I change?”    “How did life change?”
Life is a nasty road… You gotta go up… sometimes even fall down..Rise again, crumble again. Smile or cry or wail or say “WHY?”
All good things , do come to an end. Not always there’s a happy ending. Silent storms help you become stronger.

Whatever happens/happened, whether you like/liked it or not – doesn’t matter, it has/had to happen, not only because it is/was meant to be but also because you are/were meant to grow over your weaknesses, find your courage, learn to rebel and learn to appreciate not just life but yourself.

Trace your life backward and you’ll see the way everything has changed.

Take time to ponder on “What all happened?”
Its nice to read your own life; smile over the times you acted stupid , impulsive, foolish or stubborn; be proud over the decisions you took, the resolutions you stood by, the many wishes you made, the dreams  that you made sure become your reality; the times you let your wounds heal; the times you learnt a lesson -maybe a hardway; the times you realised what made you special; the times you felt ten times your age; the times you smiled even when you crumbled within; the times you were simply happy…..
In all the agonising moments, we fail to remember the many many happy moments we had. Count such moments. Count the number of times you smile a day. Count the many blessings you have. Count the many breaths you have taken so far and well, aren’t you still breathing? Count the many times you were saved from looming storms. Count the many times you almost gave up, but something/ someone didn’t let you give in. COUNT.
Once you count. You’ll know what happened!

Be happy. Its life. You get what you deserve. Nothing more. Nothing Less. Even if its a frightening storm, know it will pass, know you can handle it. Enjoy every phase of life. These are the seasons that once slipped never come back. And once lived are enough. The little you have is much more than many can have.

Small moments you live make life easier, cause big moments are a rare catch. Everyone plays this game called life, all get fair chances, fair lifelines, fair choices and fair breaks.

Play it well…. whilst you always remember to enjoy.

Life is a Bumpy bus ride

I’m sure we all have had a bus ride, have had a window seat, or stood among the crowd in the narrow pass it provides. What all happens in there ? Sometimes we have to sit beside people perhaps we would never like to deal with. Sometimes we meet people who have a great impact on us within a few moments. Sometimes we look out the window and gaze at the nature sprinting past us. When the bus stops we feel stuck too and wait for it to move on and drop us to our destination. Sometimes we meet rude people as well as sweet ones.

When we were small we would think that it isn’t the bus moving forward but the nature outside that is running on and we are stationery.

Now you’ll will be wondering why am I bringing up the topic of a bus.  Right?

Well that’s simply because I relate LIFE to a bus ride.

A bus ride is a journey from where we are to where we wish to go or rather be. Isn’t life the same?

Life is a bumpy bus ride. It’s never a smooth one (if we remember our roads ). There are so many ups and downs. So many potholes jerking us from our seats or making us jump. Not always there’s a promise of a comfy seat. Not always will there be a companion you can think of as a friendly stranger. There are bound to be moments when you meet the wrong or people you’d not rather share a seat with.

There are those whom you can help out- how? giving your seat or carrying their luggage or standing up for them when you think you should. Don’t we do this in life? Helping out those who mean something to us? try to share their laughter and sorrows? help them carry their burdens? advice them? fight ? Sometimes even give up something we love or something that gives us comfort for those who we can do good to? Give away a smile? Or a daring stare to those with ruthless eyes?

There are spectators everywhere whether a bus ride or life. People are bound to judge you or criticize whether in their minds or on your face. Just remember that they like you are having a bumpy bus ride too, so keep calm and hold up your shield against such attacks and just stay aloof and do your work. Waste no energy or time on something so reckless and unworthy. If you know your worth and what you are, am sure no sly comments or thoughts should be enough to make lose your cool.

“Do what you Love. Love what you do.”

What you see sprinting past you become memories you leave behind. You may forget most of the journey except for somethings that will be unforgettable.

MEMORIES CAN NEVER BE FORGOTTEN whether GOOD or BAD.  All you have to learn is how to deal with them, as and when you face flashbacks. The best way is to accept and chase them back and not run away from.

One last thing, YOU ARE NEVER STUCK IN LIFE. No matter how much you feel you are. Confused maybe. But never stuck. Just like the bus keeps moving on stops here and there and finally drops you off at your destination. Same-way in life, you perhaps take some halts here and there, collect yourself, learn something, let go of somethings, amuse yourself over the drama and the role you play and so on. In all this, whether you’re happy or sad- you keep walking on- Accept it or not. But you do.

Life is a Journey that stops only when You reach your Destination.

The more breaks you take or the many times you space out thinking you’re stuck or confused, the more farther will your destination be.

So if you wish to make it shorter and pleasant. Stop spacing out. Get a grip. Learn fast. Accept without denial. Run (forward) if you have to. Don’t walk backwards, it’s pointless unless you wish to start all over again on the same route from square one and delay all the more crossing the finish line. Walking back is accepting defeat at the hands of failure. Don’t be a loser. Hold yourself and step forward . Accept failure as a lesson.

Every failure helps you master the art to succeed. Deal with your problems without lamenting and complaining. Prioritize your wants, dreams and wishes and goals. Plan your journey.

Just like the stops the bus takes, make the stops of your life short. Let go of the people who would be better out your life. Let them leave when it’s time. Welcome the  new faces. Enjoy the journey.

Live life with a fever of Never backing down -of not clinging to your comfort zones.

Swing in the adventures. Jump high. Fall back. Climb up. Take risks. But only risks you can afford. Don’t Blow up. Make it worth. But in it all “Listen to your heart .” Do not make decisions to please but take decisions to Live better.

Rekindle the flame of goodness in you. Even a small spark is magical. You’ll live without regrets. You will live in harmony with the positive vibes. A wonderful key to an optimistic life.

When you reach your destination, if you made the journey worth it – You will carry this with you till your last. But if you didn’t- then it adds up to the meaningless things you pile up.

Your LIFE DEFINES YOU- so make sure the definition is good enough.

ONLY YOU CAN DO IT . So Dear Master of your own-Life, Enjoy the bumpy Ride.
