Note to Self....

If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume
And come back as a new character...
Would you slow down? Or speed up?

Quite a poignant thought – if you look at it… it questions the very essence of your living…
Do you love yourself..?? Do you feel a sense of pride when you look at yourself in the mirror? Do you say ‘I love you’ to yourself?? Are you your favorite?? Are you happy with yourself? Happy with the way your life is going?

I am sure a lot of times you feel let down, bogged down, frustrated, irritated, depressed, and emotionally feel like you are not capable of doing whatever comes your way… doing what people entrust you with …. Or even simply not doing something that you actually feel like doing and something that you actually love doing…

Everyone is influenced by something or the other… someone or the other…. But it all depends on how you look at the way people say things… it is all a matter of fact if you have the courage to look deep inside yourself, and find the strength and the nerve to do things that you feel are right… even if they are not the right things atleast you’ll have no one else but yourself to blame and move on…

A lot of people I know, crib about themselves, about how their lives are not as good as everyone else’s… how others have it so much better than themselves… how others are better at things that they themselves are not… about how they had to suffer and undergo troubles when they were so young… (And what are these troubles??? – Not enjoying with friends, not travelling etc – this is what they say…)

Gosh! I have just one thing to tell …. Your life is what you make out of it… if you can’t do something that you like, like what you are doing…!! We’re given such a beautiful life to enjoy, to do good, to make good, to feel good… and all we ever do is just complain and crib about how life sucks and how things could have been so much better… if that’s the case, do it … make things better… don’t crib, complain, criticize and grumble about how sad and bad life is…

That way, you are criticizing GOD… Complaining about what he chose to give you… GOD would not have given you something that you cannot handle right… and even if you find it tough there’s always one or the other that GOD shows to help you… Never fear shadows, they always mean there’s a light shining somewhere nearby..!!!

Live life well… Treat it as a gift… and don’t gripe about small things that are of no consequence….

The only way you can repay GOD for the good things in life is by smiling always…

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me.”
