There’s no book list this year, just some recommendation of books I’ve read and loved.
Happiness is the most essential ingredient of life. Though everyone has different priorities in life, but if you are not happy and content then nothing matters at all. All of us has a definition of happiness, some may say, if you want to be happy, tie your life with a goal not people and things, or some other may say, true happiness is spending a life for others and be selfless, some associate happiness with success but whatever definition of happiness you believe in happiness is an inside job don’t assign anyone else that much power over your life. Your life is precious, it may not be perfect but it should be happy. So that after many years when you will look back you don’t have any regret.
My idea of happiness in simple. ” I choose to be happy”. Life is never perfect neither it always throws flowers at you but you should have courage to deal with it. Worrying is like walking with an umbrella waiting for it to rain. I might have mentioned this earlier that every problem comes with a solution, you just need to put your negative thoughts aside and focus on going on and deal with it like a true hero because “life goes on”.
reminding you a very cruel reality, life doesn’t wait for anyone, it has never and it will never for sure.
Time is flying fast and it doesn’t stop for anyone, and if you want to compete with it then run or you will stay behind. Just like a plant, if you provide favourable situation , it will bloom and grows in its best possible shape but if you neglect and take it for granted that plant will might grow but eventually wilt and die without experiencing its full bloom.
“till death do us part” is a part of some traditional wedding vows. This phrase signifies that the married couple intend to spend the remainder of their lives together and will be parted only by death. Most of us find these vows spiritual and a promise for a forever relationship.
Marriage, where two different people start spending their lives together, It is indeed a simultaneous change in both of their lives, and the major twist is, this change or addition in their lives is permanent, yes, ” till death do us apart” type. Everyone has a perspective or you can say expectation with their new life as married person, it may vary on gender basis too. But let me tell you one thing, change is almost equal for both of them and both have to give their 110% to their new relationship, if they really want a ever lasting relationship.
Now coming to the fact, why suddenly I thought to write about marriage and all. Beside the fact that I am indeed a newly wed, the other day I was scrolling down on a social network and a phrase got my attention, it was something like ‘marriage isn’t beautiful’ and like any other curious newly wed, I started reading it, thinking that it might explain some typical cons of marriage, mentioning all those experience when you think of your single-hood and miss your bachelor life, but to my surprise it was something else, and being honest it made me real emotional.
So as I have mentioned marriage isn’t beautiful, yea! it is. All your life you try to hide bad of you and shows the best to leave a good impression to other people but unlike being single when you marry a person you get to see worst of each other. You become transparent, now your life is an open book and that one person start living with you like your reflection. So basically your private life becomes not so private. You get to see darkest side of each other. You see their mood swings, tantrums, when they are being harsh and intolerable, when they annoy you with their irritating habits, disagreed point of views, when they seem unlovable and stubborn.
But you see what is the other side of being in a relationship you see the best side of each other too, you see them laughing so hard that tears come out of their eyes, you see the kind and loving soul under that hard and strong body, you live the best moments with each other, make memories and then laugh and cry while recalling them. You listen to the late night snoring which will be denied in the morning (personal experience). You get to see the side of each other which no one else has ever seen and trust me it’s not always pretty. Agree it or not, top of the list insecurity before marriage commitment is that you are giving permission of full excess to yourself, it’s scary.
Marriage isn’t a beautiful but its amazing. It is the feeling that someone loves you so much that you will never be alone even when you are at your worst. It is knowing that someone is always at your back to support you no matter what. It is having arguments which you know can’t be settled. It is understanding each other by their gestures. It is saying yes to any decision without having a second thought. It is like saying “everything will be alright” even when you know things are out of your hands. It is that promise of staying by each other side through every kith and kin. It’s the toughest, most demanding job which is much rewarding. Because at the end of the day, you are with your best friend, the weirdest, most annoying, loving, goofy, perfect person you know.
Marriage isn’t beautiful, it’s a roller-coaster ride.
“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives…not looking for flaws, but for potential.”
So here we are again blessed enough to breath in the air of 31st december. A long journey of 365 days and it feels like it has passed in just a glimpse. But if we think about tiny details of this whole year then we will realize that it is not only a year of a few days instead of, it is a time period in which we had different experiences. Experiences , which were simple yet they played a vital role in changing our lives, sometimes for better and other times we have learned from our mistakes.
New years celebration is a common event now. Almost every country spends a pile of money and resources to welcome new year. late night parties, family gatherings, feasting, gift exchange, fireworks and countdowns has become a tradition. Whole world welcome new year in their own ways with happiness and joy. Everyone raise his expectations with new year. It brings hope and light to their lives.
New years day generally means new year’s resolution. There is a trend of taking new year resolution. The new year inspires people to improve themselves in variety of ways. Some resolve to work for a healthier life style, some resolve to learn something new, other might resolve to improve their habits. According to a survey about 80% people take new year’s resolution but over 65% follow it till the first week of January and 35% prolong it till June. I think if there is anything one needs to change it doesn’t need a new year resolution to make it happen.
Days are passing, new things are happening in everyone’s life, you meet new people and leave some people behind. Just to match the pace of time everyone is trying to give its best. But one thing which we are losing each passing year is our satisfaction genes. May be this gene is inversely proportional to our age or the oxygen we are breathing is now polluted with greed and unjust. Whatever it is, the deterioration is fatal and worst part is we confidently justify fall of our moral values with lame excuses. Every other day we hear news about progress in technology and side by side crime rate is increasing humoungously. Problem lies in our way of thinking, we only live for today and forgetting that the ease we have today is the hard work of our forefathers. The question is what do we have to inherit our next generation.
I am sure if anyone make a film of all his deeds he will end up hating himself. Still we expect people to love us unconditionally, this is the injurious level of selfishness. We seriously need to mend our ways.
New year’s day, a fresh start, a new chapter in life waiting to be written.New questions to be asked, embraced and lives. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformation year of delight and self discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself to dream. Only determination give birth to change.
