Spread Positive Energy !!

There are times in life when, whether we want it or not, we do feel low and depresssed. It could be due to some expectation or desire not being fulfilled or some other disappointment. At such times, we need some help in getting over our misery and we need someone to cheer us up. And when such an event happens, we feel great and relieved..

If we can tune ourselves to get this sort of positive energy from within, how wonderful life could be ! We could rid ourselves of our pain points in no time. If we choose to be positive and look at everything with this outlook, not only do we help ourselves but we also ensure that our misery does not get transferred to people around.

By being positive, we can also help people who interact with us when they have similar moments. And thus we can create a great environment around us. People will value our company and seek us out. We will have more friends and eventually benefit in more ways than one !!

What is the secret of being positive and how does one do it ? Well, in my opinion and experience, positive attitude comes from the realisation that worrying and fretting and fuming and being anxious does not help in any way. Rather, such emotions have a negative and adverse effect. Being positive helps us look at the brighter side of things, become more energetic and enthusiastic and help come up with solutions to every situation.

So, what do you think ? Be positive and see it for yourself !!

Treat Everyone Fairly & Well

The world comprises of so many different people and characters. I have always found it useful to watch with the curiosity of a child and observe the differences in people without attaching a value to it. Some people are frank, some bold, some stupid, some secretive, some faithful, some suspicious etc.

Initially, I used to get attracted to people with positive and desirable attributes and used to detest the rest. However, time and grey hair have taught me that it takes all kinds to make up the world. In fact, the world would be a very boring place if everyone was alike or everyone was nice. As they say, all five fingers of the hand are different but together they can do so many useful things, I have come to believe that diversity is not only good but also necessary.

Having said that it is but natural that I tend to appreciate differences and would prefer to encourage the same. Also, at the core everyone is the same. Each one has similar set of physical endowments, similar desires and similar dreams. Each one is striving for the same thing and it is better to recognise this and appreciate everyone.

Treating people equally and well also has its advantages - people respond positively to you and the amount of reciprocative behaviour is well worth the effort (if any). So, if you have a cranky neighbour or a nasty acquaintance or a naughty child, go ahead and smile at them and let them know that you accept them as they are. And see the difference !!

Welcome !!

Dear Visitor,

A very warm welcome to you. I am delighted that you took time to come to this site. I assure you that I will try my best to keep my blogs short and simple. I will look forward to your responses and comments to help me improve the style further..

My blog is purely intended to capture values and credos that have guided me. Most of these have been learnt by me through the course of my life and my teachers have been many. Whenever I hear or read of a value and it appeals to me, it has become part of my value system.

In these following blogs, I will try to capture those values and hope it will impress and inspire you to adopt the same.

Thanks for visiting my blog spot !!
