little things make huge difference

How Little Changes Bring Huge Difference In My Life (And How It Can Help You Too!)

When I feel down I try to observe the cause of my sufferings. It is easy for me to seize the pain arising from one or two ways. But what shall I do if I’m suffering from a lot of problems and emotions? If I’m feeling down because of so many things I create a list:

  • Got into an argument with someone.
  • The people around me do not care what I’m doing for them.
  • I’m overwhelmed by too much of work.
  • I need someone to talk.
  • I’m overthinking.
  • Oh God! My life is screwed up. Shower some peace.
  • It is hard to live a good life.

I sit on my bed and break down into little sobs. I’m upset and disheartened. I curse everyone on the planet. Fortunately, I remind myself that I’ve never been so weak to lose the control over my life.

I gather myself up. I pick up my phone and play Jaapji by Guru Nanak.

I peel off my clothes and go into the bathroom. I turn on the shower. While bathing I meditate on the words of Guru Nanak. I feel a little better. (more…)

dalai lama quotes

17 Remarkable Quotes From Dalai Lama For An Enchanting Life

I’ve always been fond of collecting quotations and proverbs in my journal. I keep a diary beside while reading books. Whenever a sentence catches my attention, I write it down. Then I read my journal again and over again in my spare time. This habit has benefitted me many times in providing content for writing.

I’ve recorded a lot of quotes in my journal. Almost every line has left a profound effect on me. I feel so connected to them that sometimes I think these sentences have been written only for me.

As I cannot handle the journal for a long time and lose it, I memorise the quotations by heart.

Quotes play a vital role in strengthening your point of view. Moreover, quoting others while writing or speaking makes you look more intelligent. But that’s the second thing.

The most important thing is to understand them and apply it in your life. Applying the quotes in real life is easier said than done. But by continuously feeding the mind with positive messages, we begin to develop a positive character which later brings a pleasant life. (more…)

peaceful life

How To Apply Mindfulness To Attract Peace In Life

As a blogger suggested me to write short content rather than writing long articles, I spent most of my time sitting in my chair doing nothing.

‘People do not read long content. Work on creating short and good content,’ the professional said.

This idea disturbed me. I had never expressed myself in short articles before. I tried to make articles of around 500-600 words, but I ended up writing 2000 words. For a couple of days, it went like this that a fear of not being able to write caught me.

Writer’s block. I left writing.

I was depressed. I had not written a word for the past two weeks. My earnings went down. I smoked innumerable cigarettes. I avoided eating food. I didn’t bath for several days. I ignored my friends and the world around me.

One morning, I encouraged myself for a long walk. I drank tea for a nearby tea stall and went on exploring the streets. After an hour or so I discovered a tree in the far corner of the street which led to a forest. (more…)

Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

I live in an attic which I had rented a few years ago. Most of the place in my room is acquired by the books. Earlier, I had a box where I kept my collection. As I purchased more and more books, the box got full and I left handling them with care. Now, the books are everywhere: under my cot, in my suitcase, on the table, and in the shoe rack.

Sometimes, in the middle of night, I feel uncomfortable in my bed. I stand up, take off the bed sheet, thump the bed and find books under my mattress. One day, I found a novel of an Indian writer, Jhumpa Lahiri, in my bathroom, under the soap box. Although, I really feel myself as a careless boy, but when I discover the books on unexpected places, it reminds me how much I love reading.

I’ve studied a lot of saints and philosophers and through their words, I’ve made my own values for a better living. Creating values are very important for a man to embrace a peaceful living. (more…)

This Is How You Can Earn Money From Your Talent And Passion

Estimated reading time: 5 Minutes

There are millions of people on the planet who have talents but cannot do anything about it. The sad truth about them is without even exploring their passion they’ve discovered that their talents don’t have any scope for future.

You may be among those who love painting or writing or photography… But you do not have any notion what to do with it. Now you are doing it as your hobby, but life will not remain same as always. By and by, you get so busy in your life that you forget about your interest. Your hobby would just remain a part of your past and nothing else.

There were some people who claimed to me that they write far better than me. Often, they boasted their smartness and intelligence to me. Well, I cannot avoid the fact that they were smarter and brilliant. But one quality that distinguished me from them was my ability to take quick and bold decisions. (more…)

The First And Top Rule To Achieve Anything In Life

I’ve two tables, each table filled with books. I keep my stationary on the left one. To break the mundane, time-to-time I move my chair alternatively between them. But, as the right table touches the corner of the room, making everything seems congested, I prefer reading and writing on the left table.

In the wall, there is a rack divided into five fragments. At the top portion placed the two motorcycle helmets. I do not have any two wheelers. Maybe these helmets are of those who stayed here before me. Once in a while, I wipe off the dust from them. Third, fourth and fifth shell is filled with my grooming stuff, curriculum books, and footwear respectively.

On the second shell, placed an old portrait of Guru Nanak. This portrait gave me all the faith I needed over the years. When I’ve faith on my Guru, I never doubted in my work. I’ve not written any article without the help of Him. (more…)
