“Distracted from distraction by distraction.”
~ T. S. Eliot

Social media has become the link, the link that links us all in an ever expanding virtual community. A community much wider, bigger and beyond anyone’s control.

It will make you feel popular one moment and deserted the next. It can leave you feeling quite lost if you don’t bring along your only defense-a sense of humour.

“Yet the best determining factor of how comfortable we are with ourselves, is our ability to laugh at ourselves.”
~Wes Adamson

A lot of people are of the opinion that social media tends to make people feel low and depressed. That makes sense; looking at the selective best moments of friends, seemingly living better lives will do that to anyone.

Social media has some serious issues and it’s negative effects can’t be ignored. But we can’t avoid it’s use completely.

Shades of Life

There are many different shades of life presented by the many experiences and influences brought into our surroundings.

We have one great expectation to grow in our life and to make it better all the time, looking forward to perhaps an unreachable dream. Those who believe in the Divine Creator know that life is fare-most the greatest gift and that life is sealed by the Grace of salvation making us able to live by a still greater expectation of a better world to come. With that hope by the Grace of Salvation we can nurture our personal choice to opt the option of living and enjoy every moment we receive from the Creator. For that life we should be thankful for each blessing in our present life and the other life still to come and hoped for.

In our life where may be the shadow of all those experiences and special moments of life?  The memories which can build up our life and make our book of life a great story-book to accompany us on paths still unknown.
We may not be any more the one we were when we were a child. All those experience , which we liked and did not like, have moulded us in an other child. The innocence of our childhood is gone. But by the years we become softer and perhaps less experimenting, putting much more in perspective.   When older the empty days can be filled with memories.

Life may be going on for no reason, but we can give a lot of reason to our life, and that is what we should do.

“Among infinite shades of life, you can’t claim any one shade as The best or The worst. Life is so unpredictable.

Soulmate life

Walks with me like my shadow Amalgamated life
Time flies likeblink of eyes, though
Unswayed life

Lives in the hope of living and pray
Aspired life
Lost in the memories of yesterday
Ignorant life

Freely savour the present moment
Pithy life
Cherish the future’s golden element
Relentless life

Resonates the music of laughter
Melodious life
Takes the shower of tears
Morose life

हमसफ़रजिंदगी

साये की तरह साथ चलती ये
रहगुज़र जिंदगी
मेरे हाथों से छूटता वक्त है फिर भी कितनी
बेअसर जिंदगी

जीने के आस में हरवक्त रहती ये
अग्रसर जिंदगी
कभी कल की याद में खोई हुई ये
बेख़बर जिंदगी

कभी आज को खुल के जीती हुई ये
मुख़्तसर जिंदगी
कल के सुनहरे सपने सजातीे रहती

What could happen when you follow your dream

Today we do not find many who can say they do the job for which they studied. Also a lot of people can not say they do what the had loved to do in first instance.

sandseasky

We would advice always to follow your dreams and to do only what you would love to do, but this always in respect to nature and into respect of the Will of the Divine Creator.

When following a dream, trying to make things as best as you can, this often requires to take measures and steps which are not always liked by others. Sometimes it also mean you have to leave place you love or where you have been born and grown up.

A wife and a mother of two boys, Nezel Yurong earned a degree in Business Administration but after more than a decade in the corporate world,  chose to freelance full time in writing and virtual assistant services and heed to her calling, with the knowledge that obstacles are inevitable, but

Whatever they may be, just have the faith and determination that you can overcome them. {The 5 Qualities You Need to Reach Your Biggest Goals}

She writes

I may not have gone to a faraway place, but I feel I’ve been to the deepest core of every human existence. This may sound weird, but yes, for more than a year, I’ve exposed myself to the ideas of what makes us who we are, why we do what we do.

Of course, I don’t have all the answers to all my questions because I feel I have only touched the tip of my beingness. But it’s enough to make me understand more of myself and more of others. {Home Again}

Life would be so much easier if we would know the answers. Everyday, we are confronted with questions and looking for answers and every day we shall have to face new challenges. Often it may loook like it has become too difficult for us or that we feel we have enough of it.

Be persistent. Strong successful people do not give up. Do not push too hard on people or on yourself. You may make it slow according to your capacity; just keep moving forward. {The 5 Qualities You Need to Reach Your Biggest Goals}

We want to do so much in our life. Getting older, reflecting on what we have done, we often see many failures or notice how many dreams were not fulfilled. It seem frustrating, is it not? Several times we also thought this or that way would be a good one. We took a new road or an other turn. Time passed … and once more it did not look  or did not turn up to what we had expected.

weekly photo challenge: satisfaction

How many times did we not look at the road and at the goal we wanted to reach. How many times we did not know to be patient.

According to Beverly Sills,

“there are no shortcuts to places worth going.”

Get into the mindset that the wait will be worth it. Always take massive action. And remember that great things take time. {The 5 Qualities You Need to Reach Your Biggest Goals}

In the end that’s all what we have to give ourself in life: time, endurance and being resilient.

Along your journey, especially if you are just starting, there are people who tell you you won’t make it. Those are just challenges that might want you to quit. Don’t listen to them. It’s your journey not theirs. You’re aiming for your success not theirs. Look for a support group or people who are willing to encourage you. Better yet, hire a coach or a mentor who is an expert in that area you want to excel in. {The 5 Qualities You Need to Reach Your Biggest Goals}

Nezel Yurong knows that

How liberating it is to allow others to lead us to take a peek of their perspective, of how they see things much differently from us. The greatest lesson I learn is, there’s no us versus them, there’s only we. {Home Again}

It is the “We” and the “I” we do have to face. Most important in the end you shall have to face the “I” of yourself and to look back at all the things you have done in your life. Then it shall be important that you can say

“i did it my way”

but also that you shall be able to say

“I did it in a right way”

or

“I did it in a way I would not have to shame myself for it”.

We all have to remember that

Life is short, we all know it. What is the best thing we could do to this short-lived existence? {What fuels your drive?}

seeing hearts 10: love in unexpected places.

It might well be (as said above) we had to leave something behind on our trip to the future life; something beautiful, something useful.

Many great and not-so-great souls had passed this way. The great ones left inspiration and hope. The not-so-great ones left fear and continuing cultural conflict. This is a sad reality. And it is up to us to do our fair share of legacy. {What fuels your drive?}

The above mentioned writer who calls herself a purposive ninja tells her readers

I thought I would stay there for long, but after learning some of the necessary lessons, I have to move on to another path. It’s what I feel I’m called to do. I also learned, discovering our passion can’t always be done in one step. We need to follow a series of steps before we’re finally ready to do that mission we’re called to do.

For this, I’m allowing the waters to take away what no longer serves me and to prepare me with a refreshed mind for the journey up ahead. {Home Again}

I have often been fascinated by people’s perspectives; the fact that two people can look at the same thing or event and experience totally opposite emotions.
I have seen siblings growing up in the same environment where one is adversely affected by something and the other continues with life as if nothing has happened.
I have seen people living in dire circumstances that encourage others that live in luxury.
I have seen people excel despite harrowing experiences.
I have seen the suffering of those living in close proximity to negative people and the ripple effect that it has on the spiritual temperature of a home.
I have often wondered if a person is born with a tendency to have a positive or a negative attitude.
