If you have ever experienced moments when things just didn’t seem to be going right for you, let me remind you all that you aren’t alone.

Each day of our lives revolve around so many activities and tasks. Life is all about finding the balance among all these daily activities and achieving health & positive mindfulness.

It is while playing this balancing act that so many things can go wrong due to so many different reasons. Maybe things turned into worse scenarios due to things totally out of your control, maybe you just weren’t physically well, maybe someone else ended up making things bad for you and so on.

Whatever the reason may be, you cannot and should not allow the things that went wrong to spiral downwards further out of your control.

Take your time to vent things out and let go of the chaos inside your head but make sure you get out of it with a lesson learnt. Do not let it dull your sparkle & shine! 😊

If you are going through a difficult time right now & if things are feeling like they are going against you, here are 3 pearls of wisdom to help you embrace and realize the importance of these trying times as well;

When some things go wrong, take a moment to be thankful for the many ones going right.

At any given moment, remember that not everything is going downhill for you. You are still living the life that many people on the planet are only dreaming of. Utilize these moments and situations to thank for and be grateful for the things that you normally take for granted in your beautiful life everyday. Remember – You are blessed!

Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling in place.

Life is like a puzzle and has many pieces to it. Remember the times when you ended up arranging the pieces of a puzzle in the wrong sequence? All the pieces had to be pulled back apart and arranged in a different order to create the final correct masterpiece! It is the same with life. When things fall apart, God or the supreme power you believe in, is actually working on your life to create a stunning masterpiece! Maybe the one that had been arranged before wasn’t the one for you, maybe you deserve better. Sit back and watch as these trying times will soon pass.

When a child learns to walk & falls, it never thinks that maybe this isn’t for me.

So maybe things went wrong because you were to blame.. Life is all about constant learning and change. Take it as an opportunity to help you learn a new lesson. When a child learns to walk and falls, it never thinks that maybe this isn’t for me. It tries till it finally learns to walk! So can you. One failed opportunity doesn’t mean that things wont go right for you ever again. Accept the situation, take your time to deal with it and move on. You deserve the right to be or do anything that you wish to be irrespective of a few rough patches of life.

Life is a beautiful journey meant to be lived in full consciousness. One may stumble upon a few blocks or mountains on the way. The way one decides how to face them in the long run, makes one’s life a problematic one or a successful one.

Be positive, always. Love, Pooja. 😊

Hello!

Hope you all are having a fun Sunday!

Today I wanted to share the above quote with you all.

We all know that life is not the same everyday. Change is the law of life. Sometimes, life blesses us with beautiful and unforgettable moments. But many a times, life knocks us down. It is during these hard and trying times of our life that we need to stay strong the most. 

I have always talked about being happy and about the importance of happiness in our lives. But is it really possible to stay happy all the time? 

Every emotion has a major role to play in our lives, even the negative ones. After all we are all humans and life without the presence of negative emotions isn’t possible. 

Dwelling over negative emotions isn’t healthy. It is always advisable to get over our negativity and hurtful experiences and start each day afresh! Here’s where happiness comes in.

Happiness is not something that you can buy. It isn’t a commodity which you will never run out of. In fact, happiness is a journey and to be truly happy, one requires an attitude to look at life through rose-tinted glasses. On this journey, you might lose the way temporarily. Just when you shift your thoughts to happiness, you might be taken over by sadness and pain again. But don’t stop choosing joy. Remember that you can always choose joy any second of your day!

All it takes is a change of perspective!

There is no person on this planet who is completely free of problems and negative emotions. Life is all about finely balancing the positives with the negatives. 

So from today, do the best you can to solve your problems and let them go. Stop paying extra attention to your problems and focus on the good things you have been blessed with in this lifetime!

Stay happy and be the reason for someone’s smile today!

 Have a positive day! Love, Pooja.

“Life is better when you are happy!”

Hello!

Hope you guys are having an amazing week! Although I am writing a post on things you should do more often, I am going to talk a bit about the picture above. I simply liked the kid in the picture on seeing him! His colourful dress is a treat to the eyes & isn’t that smile simply contagious? The picture completely justifies the word ‘happiness’, thereby making it a mandatory share on my blog! 😊

I prefer a couple of lovely websites for free stock images (Since I don’t want to get into any legal complications) to use for my blog posts. Using these till I actually start around clicking my own ones. This particular one is taken from Upsplash. It has an incredible collection of HD quality pictures captured by photographers which are free to use. Do check out the website sometime to see the beautiful pictures and boost your mood! 😊 Have you seen better ones? Feel free to share where you get your blog post images from!

Coming back to the blog post topic! Today is a Wednesday. Inspired by the trending wellness Wednesday hashtag, I have decided to share 3 things that you should do more often. They are guaranteed to give you good results in the long run by affecting your mental and physical wellbeing. Read on, wellness is just half a blog post away;

  1. Notice life’s little pleasures – Be it a sweet smiling baby, a beautiful butterfly or a breathtaking rainbow, these everyday little pleasures add sunshine to any normal day. Often times we ignore these little joys and focus on life’s problems and stresses as they are always at the back of our minds. Make it a point to live completely in the present moment and on encountering joy, stop and appreciate it fully.
  2. Stop comparing – “Do not compare somebody’s tomorrow to your today!” Comparison kills creativity and originality. Each person is unique and one rule cannot apply to us all. To add to it all, each individual person works by his or her own unique time zone. If we are all different, how can we compare one person’s achievements or failures to another one’s? Think over it. Comparison only gives rise to negativity. Compete with your own self and strive to do your best!
  3. Practice affirmations – We all see and hear affirmations being talked about on social media. Their power cannot be overstated. Start and end your day with affirmations. They can simply be single positive statements you say to yourself or even a collection of some of them together. The key is to feel good. If you haven’t started this practice already, start now!

Remember that focussing on negativity​ and problems help no one. Let them go. Let the past stay where it should, in the past. These 3 practices can help you enjoy the present and to become more aware of your surroundings. See life through rose-tinted glasses! 

Have a positive day. Love, Pooja.
