Hello!

It’s a beautiful day out here in Mumbai today! It’s Saturday after all! The weekend, when everyone is in a happier and relaxed state of mind. 

Today has become even more special due to the rain. Yes indeed! The first rain has blessed us with its lovely appearance and has given rise to happiness and joy in people’s hearts! Although a bit untimely, most people are at their cheerful self because of nature’s surprise today.

Outside, the world depicts an enchanting gray sky with sparse rain falling from the clouds. It shimmers slightly as it touches the ground below and makes one believe in the beauty of nature all over again!

This is why, today, I visited this lake in my neighbourhood (it seemed like the ideal day to do so!) It looked all the more beautiful today and here is where I captured this picturesque view posted above! I have also pinged back this post to ‘The daily post’s’ weekly photo challenge. This week’s theme is ‘reflecting’!

This picture is captured using my phone, (sorry for the picture quality), after the rain seemed to cease a little. The buildings are reflected in the lake below.

As I looked at each building and it’s reflection, it made me reflect on one important life lesson. I felt that the more we achieve in our lives and rise onward and upward, the bigger the roots we should grow into our ground to stay balanced as an individual. Think over it!

This is why I thought of sharing this picture with you all! Does this view convey something different to you? Do let me know! 

Have a fun Saturday! 😊

Love, Pooja.

Reflecting

Hello again!

‘Like wildflowers, you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.’ – E. V.

I am in love with the above quote! It shows that there is something that we can learn from every other thing around us, including flowers.

Flowers have so much beauty and contain magic within them! Magic enough to mesmerise anyone and uplift anyone’s mood in an instant! Just like the flowers in the picture above did! Simply noticing the above beauties in the morning made my day and I instantly knew that this was something that I had to share with you all!

Since it also happens to be floral Friday, I am going to list down a few things that we all can learn from flowers. Read on for some major life lessons which flowers teach us every single day;

Bloom where you are placed An important lesson for us to remember! We CAN grow to our fullest potential irrespective of where we are placed in our lives.

Spread your fragrance Each of us have a fragrance or quality which is unique to us. Never let go of it, even if times get tough!

Learn to live with thorns Not all periods of our life are meant to be celebrated. Accept that life can and will be tough. It only makes the good moments sweeter.

You can survive unfavourable conditions – Just as flowers can grow on plants which grow through cracks, we too can find our greatest victories and achieve maximum growth even in adverse conditions.

Stay rooted Even on reaching your highest goals do not forget where you first started from. Stay humble and rooted to your branch.

The power of silence – Flowers grow to their fullest and bloom even in silence.

Beauty is diverse Every flower is different. There are so many varieties of flowers but each is beautiful in its own way! None can be compared with the other.

This, of course isn’t an exhaustive list but all that I could compile for now. Will add some more in another blog post later! Concluding this post with another quote that I love;

‘The flower which grows in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.’

Hope you have an amazing Friday! Stay happy! 😊

Love, Pooja.

Hello!

It has been less than a month since I started my blog, Life – Rose-Tinted, and I am thankful to you all for all your likes, comments and support! I truly appreciate it! You truly inspire me to do better with each passing day!

For today’s blog post, I have decided to go ahead with the Thursday thoughts theme.

I love reading thoughts as they help us become better people. They are an entire knowledge source within themselves. This is why I am sharing some of my favourite thoughts with you. Simply a collection of some lovely thoughts which I love reading through again and again. Going through them will give you that much-needed boost for the day and fill you with purpose and inspiration!

Read on for some food for thought –

‘Thousands of candles can be lighted from one single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.’

‘If you have the power to make someone happy, even if it is to bring a smile to their faces, do it! The world needs more of that.’

‘Shared joy is double joy.’

‘To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.’

‘A meaningful life is not being rich, being popular, being highly educated, or being perfect. It’s about being real, being humble, being able to share ourselves and touch the lives of others.’

‘Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is.’

‘There is no path to happiness, happiness is the path.’

‘We all have a unique art, a personal passion that serves as a vessel through which our souls speak. True happiness is found by filling it and purpose is fulfilled by pouring it out.’

‘Optimism is a happiness magnet. If you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you.’

‘Our days are happier when we give people a bit of our heart than a piece of our mind.’

‘It’s all contained within the little things in life.’

‘Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light!’

‘I AM, are the two most powerful words. For what you put after them shapes your destiny.’

 

What do you think about these thoughts? Take some moments to reflect over these. Let me know about some of your favourites too! Wish you all a thoughtful Thursday!

Love, Pooja.

Hello!

I am sure that reading that title above is enough to let you know that I am about to share an infographic with you all today!

I am a huge fan of infographics! With their beautiful colours, fonts and clarity, they state information out to the reader in the most engaging way possible. Personally, I feel that information conveyed through infographics is better understood as well as retained by our senses and the brain. This is why, I have tried my hand at creating an infographic today!

Read on and do let me know if you liked my first attempt at creating an infographic! If you have any more tips for me, do feel free to drop in a comment below! 

Hope you enjoyed reading through!

Think over these reasons and have a thoughtful Tuesday, everyone!

Love, Pooja.

Hello!

It’s a magical monday today! The first day to welcome us all to a week full of new possibilities!

Monday is the day most people dread and require motivation to trudge along on. In reality, monday is just like any other new day. In fact it is one which provides us all with a chance to a fresh start and to begin with a clean slate.

This monday fill in your slate with motivation and happiness. Make your monday a happy one by referring to this monday checklist –

1. Get up – Only when you get up can you show up and once you do that, you will realise that this is all you ever needed to jump right into a happy and eventful week! Showing up makes you win half the battle. Getting up a bit earlier than your schedule demands you to, will help you relax through monday.

2. Grab that coffee – Not that difficult right? In case you prefer tea, do that. The power and magic contained within a cup of your favourite beverage cannot be overstated! It helps get you charged up for the day!

3. Make a brief to do list – This is for the anxious ones out there who can feel a little out-of-place without one. If making lists works for you, chart out a plan for the day and list down the things you wish to get accomplished today. This will help you organise your activities and will lead to a happier and less stressful you!

4. A healthy breakfast – Having a healthy breakfast gives you the energy to kick-start your day! It is the most important meal of the day and research had proved that certain foods can affect your mood and emotions which gives us enough reason to seriously concentrate on this activity!

5. Practice affirmations – Very important! Have an idea about how you want your monday to turn out? State the reasons out to yourself as affirmations. Affirmations have a lot of power and can fill your day with good vibes!

6. Pray – Believe in the existence of supreme power greater than you are? Call it God, call it nature or anything you believe in. Praying and having faith in this power can help you feel blessed and at peace and will make your monday mindful and happy!

7. Hold an attitude to gratitude – Be thankful for all the small yet lovely things that you come across throughout the day!

Follow it through and you will realise that this checklist is all you need for a great start to your monday! Do add in your comments if you feel like I have left out on something!

Wish you a lovely Monday filled with happiness.

Love, Pooja.
