The Daily Post: No,Thanks? Is there a place in the world you never want to visit? Where, and why not?

Why talk about what we don’t wish to do?

Let’s talk about what we wish to do,

And where we wish to go!

Let us allow good to flourish,

Think positive and cherish;

Let us dream good and feel good.

Everything happens for a reason,

Let us embrace every season;

Heaven or Hell is part of literature,

It’s alright to not know all answers,

Life is a gift of countless mixture.

The Argument

DSC_4532

When there is disagreement or difference of opinion, there is controversy; and because there is controversy, change persists. We have seen childhood, youth and adulthood. And now we are experiencing parenthood. Just as our life cycle has been through different phases, so have our thoughts. Here are few of the cases, what we were taught to believe when we were young. What we were taught was not wrong; but they are not right either. At least, this is what we believe today. Our views on the same issues have undergone drastic changes. For good or bad, if you ask; we would say, its not the last! We still have miles to go before we sleep. 🙂

So, here are those issues, that we agree to disagree.

We were taught: Always keep good company.  A man is known by the company he keeps.

We believe: No company is good or bad. A man becomes what he thinks and believes.

We were taught: Read good books and learn from them. They will be your best friends.

We believe: Books are expressions of great people. Read the minds of great people and express what you feel before your life ends.  

We were taught: Never tell a lie, it’s a punishable sin.

We believe: Your intentions matter. Just keep your soul clean.

We were taught: Obey your elders, they know better than you.

We believe: Age is just a number. Follow the wise, even if younger than you.

We were taught: Man is a social being. Follow the rules to lead a smooth life.

We believe: Society is for us, we are not for society. Get out of the comfort zone before you die.

We were taught: Smile a lot and at many people as you meet.

We believe: Smile may be fake. Let your eyes speak as you greet.

We were taught: Never talk to strangers. You never know.

We believe: Learn to believe and trust; the good will always flow.

These were some cases, which we were taught to believe at some point in our life. Today, as knowledgeable persons we try to defend the opposite. And let us tell you, it feels great! It feels like a great development as a human being, as a learner and as a creator of our own destiny and world. Today, we dare to dream and experience reality.

We have seen the good and the bad, and we believe, there is always something good about the bad and something bad about the good. So, the ball is always in your court!

Skill of Living

Art of living

There are instances in life when we start questioning our existence; when nothing goes right and we feel left behind. These are times when we wish to be the master (or mistress) of some skill in this world; so that we can move on smoothly and live our life with contentment.

The skill that we would pick is: Skill of Living. We choose this skill because mastering the Skill of Living will act as a stimulus and show us the way to be the master in all other skills.

Here are few examples that we think, represent the Skill of Living. There is a negative though that may push us down, followed by a positive thought that will pull us up again.

“I’ve wasted my time”

“Every moment wasted has taught me to climb”

 

“I’m not intelligent, confident and smart”

“Never compare, get recharged and restart”

 

“There are people bad and good”

“Look at me, it’s something i misunderstood”

 

“You pulled me down, I’m hurt”

“I know my worth, I’m beautiful from my heart”

 

“I’m depressed, lonely and sad”

“These moments make me strong, I’m glad”

 

“Don’t do this, don’t do that”

“Take a risk, just go ahead”

 

“Time waits for no one”

“Remove the battery and it’s done”

 

“I’m negative, discontent and do not know how to chill”

“I know the Skill of Living, I’m the master of this skill !”

Be the change

Change

The Daily Post: Be the change
What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in this world? 

Change is something inevitable. And those who adapt to the changes survive. This has been the rule of this world since ages. However, change cannot and should not be imposed on anyone. Different situations and circumstances demand different rules.

Talking of this world and its people, a change is brought about by someone who thinks different. And those who think different will either be followed or criticised. Had we the power to change this world, we probably would not have been blogging here. We do not blog to bring about any change.

Yes, we have followers here in WordPress. They are our followers by their choice. They are those who probably like and enjoy our posts or get lost in the photographs we share. We love our followers because that gives us a sense of satisfaction, that we exist. This is a platform where we can be what we are- eccentric, stupid, crazy!

We are just like anyone else living in this world, with innumerable imperfections.  We make mistakes and learn from our mistakes. We are here to share our life; the good and even the bad, but trying as we do, to add a touch of positive vibe to make life look as simple as possible. We are one among those, struggling to create a life comfortable and suitable to live. We are here to make us feel good. We are glad to be part of the blogging community, learning everyday as we share our posts.

We are not here to change this world through our blog.  We are here to change us and be the change.
