Descisions 

Whatever we do in life one thing we always face are descisions. Descisions are some kind of exercise that everyone does sub-consciously or consciously all the time.

For example, the descsion to get up early in the morning, the descsion to attend a class or not, the descsion to buy something. Many sales books say that the descsion to buy or not buy a product is taken by our subconscious mind in about 2-4 seconds. Pretty fast ! We think we have control over most of our descisions, but the truth is that most of our descisions are governed by emotions.

Let’s consider this, whenever you go out to buy a pair of shoes you always end up buying Nike, puma or some brand that has already created an emotional value for you. Many times we are told by our parents or elders to consider it twice before making a descsion. By this they mean carefully reviewing the good and bad sides of the consequences before making them. 

Career descsions are something that a person must always do it on his own ! Because you don’t wanna be 40 and regret about any descsion that you made earlier. If you wanna do something else in life but you are afraid due to the society, or what your parents will think, I say have the balls to get out of your comfort zone and take that descision that you always wanted to. You are very lucky to be born as a human who has choices in life, so get up, get yourself together and start making good descsions. Always know that you are not a product of your circumstances, but are a product of your descisions. 

I stumbled upon a very amazing quote which goes on like this “Joy is a descsion, A really brave one, About how you are going to respond to life“. I would like to conclude by saying Happiness, Success are nothing but just a state of mind. Make amazing descisions and live that amazing life that you always wanted to !

An attempt to define Love 

Love , such a simple four lettered word for something that has such a complicated meaning. Everyone experiences love in their life at some point or the other. Love can have various meanings according to the context of which we speak about it. Here, I have tried to express the different meanings that the word love has which I have experienced at some point of my life.

Everyone remembers their first love. For me my first love is my Mother. And I know that she loves me more than anything else in the world. This is a love which is never ending and unconditional. I think this is the purest form of love – Mother’s Love.

Love at First Sight – Happened to me a lot of times, and I’m sure everyone has experienced it at least once. Everyday we see countless faces. Some of them are very attractive. But sometimes you are walking down a road and see a face that you don’t forget for a long time. A kind of face that makes your heart skip a beat and makes the butterflies go crazy in your stomach.  The thought of that person transcends you into a totally different world. The kind of face that makes cheesy Bollywood songs easier to understand. Sometimes my logical brain wonders how someone can have such a deep impact in such a short period of time. I guess, some  things are best understood by the heart.

Sometimes you meet a person, get to know them. You like spending time with them, and you both click together. You talk to them for hours over the phone as they make you feel special. This feeling can have two different meanings, Obsession or Love. Most of the times obsession is mistaken for love.  But it feels good to be in that place where you can share everything with someone, even your deepest secrets. Someone who likes you for the way you are. Someone who knows your true self. That person who comes to your mind when you are reading a post on social media, that person who you imagine while reading a beautiful poem. The person whom you can spend hours and hours but it seems like only few minutes. You both are in a place where you actually don’t care what other people think about you. You both are completely lost, and have found each other. It feels as if you are living in a world of your own. Thinking about each other all day. Texting, Calling, Talking over the phone all day. These things may seem stupid to listen, but just fall in love once and you will feel the beauty of it.hdhxn

New Beginnings

We always talk about New beginnings and fresh starts in our life  

I wanna express some thoughts going around in my mind as I have boarded a flight to my  University. I find myself in this huge dilemma. I have a  desire to just stay back and relax but I feel compelled to get out of my comfort zone and do something for myself.

In our lives we may have many new beginnings, like the first day of school, first day of college, leaving family and going to a hostel, first day of vacation and much more. I personally have a lot of mixed feelings on this particular day. It is the end of a phase and a new beginning of another one. Sometimes we find ourselves in a difficult situation on this particular day. The situation I’m referring to is making choices, Choices like breaking up with a loved one, sacrificing our comforts, leaving some part of us behind.

As I am writing this I am in the middle phase of transition of the last day. The place where the past ends and a new start is ahead of us. We make up certain goals in our minds, set certain priorities which we hope to achieve in the days to come. We visualize ourselves achieving certain checkpoints and hope to work towards them. As I am writing this I recall a beautiful poem I heard in the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara. The one where 3 friends go on a bachelor road trip across Spain.

Dilon mein tum apni betabiyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum!
Nazar mein khwaabon ki bijliyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum!”

(Translated into English

You are Alive! Only if you hustle every day

You are Alive! Only if you visualize to achieve Your Goals )

This verse is very similar to what I am feeling right now. As I sit in the window seat of the plane, I can see the sparkling yellow rays of the sun rising over the horizon into a new day. I can very well relate to this because I too feel like I am just over the horizon, peeking into a new phase which is about to begin.

This article is to all the people out there just waiting for the perfect moment to make a new start. According to me, every moment is perfect, and whenever you feel the intense desire to do something in your life just begin. After all, every journey starts with a single step.
