Live responsibly

Often times, a lot of people put things on fate… or destiny…

I gained weight because “My body is like that”…
I like drinking because “It cools my mind”…
The accident happened because “Things went out of my control”…
I am not successful because “I am just unlucky and fate is not on my side”

HOW MANY TIMES…. How many times will we blame things on fate and destiny?

When we have the courage to breathe, to party, to enjoy….. Can we not DEVELOP the courtesy to live responsibly??

What does living responsibly mean? I heard somewhere that RESPONSIBILITY is made of two words – RESPONSE & ABILITY – “The ability to respond”.

Responsibility means:

Owning your body, your relationships, your children, your career, your life and everything else associated with it.

YOU have to control your eating temptations to keep a healthy body.
YOU have to control your interactions with people to develop healthy relationships in your life.
YOU have to control your words to ensure they don’t hurt others.
YOU have to control your driving habits to protect the lives of people.
YOU have to control your desires so that you are not spending extravagantly.
YOU have to manage your friendships so you have good people in your life.

When you came into this world, you were given some power, some authority, some control.

The fact that you have a body that can move, that can interact with people, that can have emotional bonding with people MEANS that you have a lot of RESPONSIBILITY associated with this body and its powers.

If you are not having a good relationship with your family members, take responsibility for it and make changes.
If you are not able to get along with people, take responsibility for it and make changes to your behavior.
If you are having struggle in your career, take responsibility for it and improve your skills.
If you are having problems in your marriage, take responsibility and develop loyalty, trust and strength.
If you are having trouble with your kids, look at what YOU are doing wrong.

TAKE RESPONSIBILITY and see how your life changes….

Take control of your mind…

I read somewhere that, “We owe a lot to this body because it DOES so much for us. We OWE taking care of the body, taking care of its actions and emotions. WE OWE doing exercise on a regular basis so that it stays fit and healthy. WE OWE a LOT to this body”.

TAKE responsibility for your money.

Whether you are filthy rich or extremely poor… Whatever amount of money you have… TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for the things you buy and the things you decide NOT TO BUY. (Don’t crave for them after you have decided not to buy them)

If you have a lot of accidents in your house with kids…. TAKE responsibility and CHILD PROOF your surroundings…

If you have a lot of trouble with your determination, CONTROL your mind or DO meditation to enhance it…

YOU OWN EVERYTHING…

I am not saying that things don’t happen by fate…. Ofcourse if you are walking on the road and an AIRPLANE falls on your head… you can’t do anything about it… But what is the probability of that happening?!

TRY TO CONTROL what you can. Take responsibility. Be responsible.

When a person takes responsibility of his/her life, Life becomes worthwhile…. Your health improves, your relationships improve, your life improves, your children feel more loved and appreciated…

I read somewhere that “TONGUE is an organ that helps you speak and eat. If you are able to control THESE two POWERS and the emotions associated with it, you will feel atleast half of your life in control.

I don’t know who is reading this blog but this I hope it helps change someone’s life in a positive direction….

May god bless everyone!

Accidents CAN be avoided…

Accident…. It is defined as “an unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, typically resulting in damage or injury.”

Recently… I heard of an incident where a friend’s husband was wearing his helmet and all safety equipment…. he went to drive his bike on the road and was “UNEXPECTEDLY” hit by a speeding car… He soon died..

When someone talks about the word accident, I want to question the words, “Unexpectedly” and “Unintentionally”…

Another example that I recently saw was when someone’s finger got unexpectedly poked into a kid’s eye… just because the kid was standing close by….

DON’T YOU THINK AT LEAST SOME OF SUCH INCIDENTS CAN BE AVOIDED??

YES….. “ACCIDENTS” CAN BE AVOIDED….

A LOT OF ACCIDENTS CAN BE AVOIDED….

Some ways in which accidents can be avoided are:

By using appropriate security equipment.
By following appropriate security measures.
By avoiding roadblocks or barriers on the way.
By avoiding clutter and unkempt environment.
By following Road and safety signs for the benefit of others including speed limits…
By ACKNOWLEDGING things or circumstances that may lead to accidents and AVOIDING THEM.

By not calling ACCIDENT… an “act of fate” but a REALITY with some irresponsible behavior attached to it…

A lot of countries have many more accidents than some other countries. This is just because they follow/implement or regulate the lives of people and ASK THEM TO LIVE IN ORDER.

UNORDERLY OR CRAZY OR UNSOCIAL behavior leads to accidents.

Even giving birth to children is sometimes called an accident but I call it unplanned behavior.

LIFE IS SO SO SO PRECIOUS THAT IT’s HIGH TIME WE DO ENOUGH RESEARCH ABOUT ACCIDENTS and try to avoid them for the coming generations…

Accidents should not happen. They are not MEANT to happen. THEY MOSTLY happen when people LOSE their minds, are INCONSIDERATE of others or ARE JUST NOT PAYING ATTENTION… That is what should be considered the law….

Safety rules and regulations must be implemented in all places. (In workplaces, in schools, in modes of transport, at EVERY SINGLE PLACE)

ACKNOWLEDGED, REPORTED, WRITTEN and REALIZED BEHAVIOR CAN AVOID ACCIDENTS.

It is important to REALIZE… WHO IS AT RISK…. WHAT IS THE RISK? HOW can it be avoided? What better can be done in the coming times….?

There should be knowledge bases of articles that happened in the past… and research should be done on it on an everyday basis…

YES…. ACCIDENTS CAN BE AVOIDED…

IF WE ALL BELIEVE… then YES… THEY CAN BE AVOIDED.

A LOT OF PAST ACCIDENTS COULD ALSO HAVE BEEN AVOIDED… If people thought a little more….! If people thought safety a little more….

Keep moving on…

Keep moving on…

That’s what we heard from our parents… no matter what our successes or failures were…

Keep moving on…

That’s what we tell our children… no matter what their successes and failures are…

I happened to go to the IIFA Awards (International Indian film academy) awards function a few years ago…. I was lucky to see film stars right in front of my eyes… The entire crowd was cheering for them… clapping… waving… encouraging… The event was at Metlife stadium..

And then… when the function ended… THEY ALL MOVED ON… The entire crowd… All the film stars…. Everyone moved on… There was an exuberant illustration of fame, success, stardom and then…. everyone moved on…. The stadium was empty….

Such is life… you celebrate success, fame, fun, laughter and even tears, failures, sadness…

And then you move on…

Everyone gets only ONE life… people say…. and in the end everyone goes empty handed… but the RICH and LIBERATING experiences that you receive during this lifetime become memorable and cherishable forever….

Each minute, each moment, we are gaining and losing… We are gaining an experience in this moment and losing it at the same time…

Each minute, we gain something and then we are empty handed…

The only LESSON that remains to be told, untold and retold is…. KEEP MOVING ON…

Earth is a living planet… LIFE is movement… As long as there is movement in our minds, hearts and bodies… there is life!!

Infact, “Life” and “Death” are just two anecdotes created by man…

The reality is EVERYTHING IS MOVING…. so Keep moving on…

No matter how much money or fame or materialistic things you receive in life… Keep moving on….

Life is a reality and an illusion at the same time….

Life gives and takes away at the same time….

Life is a fleeting experience….

If you think you’ve received enough and now you can just relax…. NO…. Keep moving on…

There’s still more to be gained… still more to be lost…. still more to be loved… still more to be appreciated… still more to be cherished….

Keep moving on…

Whether you are at the pinnacle of success…the richest man in the world… or a small worker…. Life still has enough experiences to offer to you both….

Keep moving on…

Don’t stop…

Just keep going…

No matter if someone has less or more…. is rich or poor…. no matter if you are happy or sad….

Keep moving on…

The beauty of life is in its movement… NOTHING STOPS… Nothing can stop….Nothing should stop…

Keep….

Keep….

Till it sinks into your deepest core….

Keep moving on…

Two options – “Live and Die” OR “Die and Die”

We have all heard life is a race, a struggle, a challenge, a journey and so on and so forth.

Almost everyone in the world has some opinion about life! Life is this…. life is that…

Billions of books, articles and theories have been written about good life, good health, good mindset etc…

However, I realized today that you only have TWO OPTIONS to live:

You either “LIVE YOUR LIFE” and then die
OR you “DIE WHILE LIVING” and then die.

You “LIVE” when you have the enthusiasm, the positivity, the morale to keep moving forward INSPITE OF whatever comes your way…

And you “DIE” when you LOSE that enthusiasm, that SPARK, that BRIGHTNESS in your eyes to keep moving along…!

You “LIVE” when no matter how your body behaves, YOU never let your mind get down... You still PUSH yourself and say to yourself…. “There’s still more… there’s still more…”…. “I still have some work to do…some things to accomplish….some people to love and some time to share…”

You “DIE” when you are depressed, sad, not willing to move forward…. not willing to love, not willing to share, to believe…. to keep trying….

You “LIVE” when you ACCEPT change willingly and welcome it…

You “DIE” when you don’t want to change …. and want NOTHING to change…

You “LIVE” when you see someone beautiful and it gives flutters in your heart and you appreciate beauty in everything…. in flowers…. in tall trees… in the green grass…. in the falling leaves….🌈💖✌🎈

You “DIE” when everything seems monotonous and boring and NOTHING seems to amaze you…. when everyone seems to be against you….🤔

We all go through phases in our lives when we are LIVING and are DYING….

But my request to everyone is ….. “TRY TO LIVE”…. for as long as possible…. as happily as possible…

Even when you have absolutely NOTHING to appreciate… Appreciate your Body, your self…. your BEING… ✨

Appreciate the beauty with which your eyes blink, your fingers move and your heart BEATS…🥰

No matter what condition your body is in…. As long as there is a HEART BEAT in your heart… There is MUSIC in your LIFE!! There is rhythm… there is a beat…. there is a Spark that is MAKING THAT HEART BEAT….

DO NOT GIVE UP….

DO NOT DIE BEFORE YOUR DIE! 😣

LIVE…. LIFE IS A BLESSING… A GIFT… A BEAUTIFUL FEELING… 😁

Even if you don’t like ANYTHING in the world….. Remember the feeling of your first love…. or when your child was born…. or when you did something embarassing….🤩

LIVE….

LIVE IN YOUR HEART… LIVE IN YOUR MIND….😌

Blessed are those who lie on their death bed and when it’s time to go…. They give the doctor a WINK, a THUMBS UP and say…. “I had a good life!!” 😉
