Once again I am here with the same topic "Life". God! I know I sound damn bore now. Sometimes I really feel that my thinking is so limited . I wish I could bring some changes in myself, in my thinking, in my writting, ......

Well I think Life can be defined in many ways. Few months back I shared here at my blog that life is an exam and whatever is been given to us by God and even not is just to test us and on the day of judgement we all are going to be rewarded for our good work and punished for bad ones. Sometimes I do feel that life is to judge and discover ourself that what we are actually? Throughout life we keep on analysing ourself in different phases of life and in every phase and in every relationship we found ourself different. Everyday we experience new new things and I guess we all change with time. Like life we human beings are also not certain and predictble.

According to some life is a journey towards death, for some life is fun, few define life as a punishment,and etc etc. We all have our own different defination for life and that based on our experiences, our thoughts, our studies and knowledge, and may be few other reasons as well to the list.

Sometimes its really hard to express our true feelings in words though I always beleive that true feelings never need words to be expressed but still I guess world need an expression and words are important sometimes because not everyone can understand you or knows what you got in your heart. Anyhow I have again started my philosophy here, actually I am just trying to express my gratitude for all the care and concern of my blog friends. I am truely grateful to Allah for bringing me so many loving and caring people around. I wish could also be able to come upto the expectations of all around me.

Once again my deep thanks for God and all of you for all your sweet words at my blog. Hope our all relationship will grow with time. Lots of prayers and best wishes for all of you. Take very good care of yourself and all around you. Lets us all together take our steps towards the friendship and peace in the world.

Best Regards,

Time to time I have expressed my thoughts and views about life here at my blog and today when I started again to write something about it I realised the fact that I am repeating same thing again and again with just a difference of wordings may be. Actually I guess I write all this off and on to help my ownself whenever I am down or depressed. It's reallity that no one of us is satiosfied with our life. No one can have a perfect life with everything, we all have to face both success and failures in life and pass through both happy and sad/depressing moments in life. With all this reality of life it's really hard sometimes to keep ourself positive and sometimes it's really tiring too. I think we all need a moral support of words time to time to keep ourself on positive track. Thats why I beleive no one can live or survive in isolation, we are nothing alone, we all need each other's support, and we all live in a chain. Sometimes we dnt realise the importance of someone in our life but a time came in life when we do realise the fact when we dnt have anyone around to share with and when we dnt have a shoulder to cry at. A sense of owning a relationship is I guess the most important and precious thing in life, this leads to hope, expectation, trust, love and care in our life.

Death Of An Innocent
Well I received this heart touching, lesson teaching poetry in a email and this really made me cry. I found this really worth sharing so here it is for all my blog readers and let us all think over it seriously and appreciate the work of whoever took the effort to wrote this.
I went to a party Mom,
I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom,
So I drank soda instead.
I really felt proud inside, Mom,
The way you said I would.
I didn't drink and drive, Mom,
Even though the others said I should.
I know I did the right thing, Mom,
I know you are always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom,
As everyone is driving out of sight.
As I got into my car, Mom,
I knew I'd get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me,
So responsible and sweet.
I started to drive away, Mom,
But as I pulled out into the road,
The other car didn't see me, Mom,
And hit me like a load.
As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,
I hear the policeman say,
"The other guy is drunk," Mom
,And now I'm the one who will pay.
I'm lying here dying,
Mom....I wish you'd get here soon.
How could this happen to me, Mom?
My life just burst like a balloon.
There is blood all around me, Mom,
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom,
I'll die in a short time.
I just wanted to tell you, Mom,
I swear I didn't drink.It was the others, Mom.
The others didn't think.
He was probably at the same party as I.
The only difference is, he drank
And I will die.
Why do people drink, Mom?
It can ruin your whole life.
I'm feeling sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.
The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,
And I don't think it's fair.
I'm lying here dying
And all he can do is stare.
Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.
Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, Mom,
Put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.
Someone should have told him, Mom,
Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him, Mom,
I would still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter, Mom.
I'm becoming very scared.
Please don't cry for me, Mom.
When I needed you, you were always there.
I have one last question, Mom.
Before I say good bye.
I didn't drink and drive,
So why am I the one to die???

Become Master of Your Destiny!
So very true that 'Determination' is the first and main step towards the destination. Once you are determined to acheive any goal in life than you can acheive anything as determination is one's 'Will Power' and 'Will' is the king of mental power. When one controls his/her thoughts, he/she controls his/her mind and that ultimately leads to the control of his/her life and once anyone reaches the stage of being in total control of his/her life he/she can be the 'Master of his/her Destiny'.

Special people in our lives
Special people in our lives
Don’t often come along ,
But when they do they touch us
just like a lovely song
A song filled with meaning
And moves our very soul
A song of inspiration
That helps us reach our goal
A song that makes our spirits sing
Our heavy hearts so light
A song that gives us courage
So we won't give up the fight
A song that makes us smile : )
When we are feeling blue
A song filled with laughter I
t makes us feel brand new
ou're like a lovely song
So soothing to the heart
A song composed by God himself
A priceless work of Art
(Author Unknown)

Well trust is the base of any strong relationship and really required in a relationship to grow further. Whenever I think about it many questions arouse into my mind like : how to trust someone? how to judge that whether that person is reliable and appropriate for our trust or not? do we trust anyone intentionaly or with any planning or it is something from inside and natural? what are the factors that are required to trust anyone? and so on ........

The answer that i got from my inside and on the basis of my experience and observations is that Trust is something from inside, our inside guide us or pushes us to trust someone and for that exactly we dnt need any reasons , its something from God side and natural. But I have observed that sometimes we all do take time and hesitate to accept and realize the fact that we trust anyone and I guess this is because that time we are thinking about it from our brain and our brain always want logics and reasons whereas i beleive trust is something from heart as every feeling comes from our heart. We trust God, His existance and we do accept that He is everywhere and doing everything but no one have seen Him, just on the basis of our religious teachings that we get from our teachers, books and elders we trust on Him. We dnt need any proof because our inside pushes and leads to our trust on God which is off course been gifted by God.

Few days back I was talking to my friend and she was telling me that she is really confussed about her fiancy,and have doubts that whatever he is commiting now whether he'll be able to do that in future or not, n so on... Well I know I am not that wise and intelligent but anyhow I asked her to first trust her ownself and God and stop judging him because we cant judge anyone 100%, we cant get into one's heart to see what he got inside, whom we love and care we just trust them without any reason.b Plus one another thins that I always beleive strongly is that if I am being honest and loyal with anyone than I'll get same return from the other party as well. So I guess our trust in God and in ourself leads to trust others around.

Well the reason of publishing all this here is to get your all views as well about the topic so that I can also make correction in my thoughts and may be able to get some new additional knowledge about the topic which is I guess related to our all life. Hope you all will contribute to it and share your precious thoughts here :)

Best regards,

To beleive is to know that everyday
is a new begining
It is to trust that miracles happens,
and dreams do come true
To beleive is to see Angels
dancing among the clouds
To know the wonder of a stardust sky
and the moon wisdom of the man in the moon
To beleive is to know
the value of a nurturing heart
The innocence of a child's eyes
and the beauty of an aging hand,
For it is through their teachings we learn to Love
To beleive is to find the strength
and courage that lies
Within us when it is time
To pick up the pieces to begin again
To beleive is to know that
we are not alone,
That life is a gift
and this is our time to cherish it.
To beleive is to know the wonderful surprises,
are just waiting to happen
And all our hopes and dreams,
are within reach.

The TOP 5 Things That Keep You Away From Success
A lot of people want to be successful. Yet, only a few people are willing to pay the price. There is a price to success as there is a price to failure. Here are 5 reasons that keep people from accomplishing their dreams.

A lack of motivation. Success comes from loving what you do. Is your current job your passion? When your study highly successful people, you understand that they have at least 1 thing in common: they love what they do and they do what they love. Is this the case for you? If the answer is no, you can start by identifying your passion. This is the best way to get motivated.

A lack of faith. Faith is a firm belief in yourself, God or others that you can do it. Build up a strong vision of what you want to accomplish. In developing a vision, the law of attraction is going to work for you. You are going to attract people, opportunities and money that will allow you to develop an unstoppable confidence.

The fear of failure. The fear of failure doesn't exist. Neither does the fear of success. Fear stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. Micheal Jordan said himself that "Fear is an illusion". It is hard to overcome fears. One simple way to overcome the fear of failure is to read inspirational stories and quotes of people that achieved their dreams. Read one every morning. That will give you strength and hope.

The wrong strategies. When you want to build a business, to achieve something really big, you need to have mentors. You can't allow yourself to loose time, money and energy. Mentors are people that will give you the right strategies; they will provide the right information and will inspire you. They will coach you through the process. Choose correctly your experts, your models. Work with them and adopt the same thinking patterns, the same strategies, the same beliefs. If he did it, you can do it too.

Limiting beliefs. Often times we have limiting beliefs about what we want to achieve. For example, you can really want to achieve a goal but at the same time something tells you: "It's not for you, you don't deserve that" or "You can't do it, remember". These thoughts pollute our minds and darken our life. A quick way to stop these damaging thoughts is to use the power to say no! First, represent in your mind the "limiting belief" and say NO! To it. Now, represent in your mind what you want in its place and say a big YES! You will be amazed how your attitude suddenly changed about the old belief.

Be thankful that you don't have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the beautiful times,
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
They give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes,
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
Because it means you've made an effort.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into positive,
Find a way to be thankful to your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

Well friends these are not my own words i received this in a mail and i really liked it and beleive in it so i am sharing it here with you all as well, hope you all gonna like it too.

Don't worry... be Positive!!

Positive thinking is one of the main key for a successful, happy, healthy life. People who are positive and live thier life 'in the moment' are really lucky. So if you can stop worrying about what you've done in the past,and stop worrying about how your actions will affect your future...then you will open yourself up to all sorts of positive events and people that the 'new' you will encounter.Everyone has to worry...but you must try only to worry about what you (and only you) have direct control over.Worry about anything else outside of that...and you will probably be worrying about something that may never even happen.

Nobody has the 'perfect life' and everyone has the ability to manage the positives and negatives in their lives. So its in our own hands to not to let the negatives on top of us...otherwise they will just overtake the positives - and we will be constantly miserable as a result.

So always be positive & happy :)

Saturday, August 12, 2006

God Knows!!

When you are tired and discouraged from fruitless effort, GOD knows how hard you have tried.

When you've cried so long your heart is in anguish, GOD has counted your tears.

If you feel that your life is on hold and time has passed you by, GOD is waiting for you.

When nothing makes sense and you are confused or frustrated, GOD has the answer.

If suddenly your outlook is brighter and you find traces of hope, GOD has whispered to you.

When things are going well and you have much to be thankful for, GOD has blessed you.

When something joyful happens and you are filled with awe, GOD has smiled upon you.

Whenever you feel lonely then do remember, your God is always with you.

No matter whole world misunderstood you, your God understands you.

May this whole world hates you but there is one your God who always love you.

Remember that wherever you are or whatever you are feeling, GOD knows!

When the door of happiness closes,
another one opens;
but often times we look so long
at the closed door
that we don't see the one
which has been opened for us.
Don't dwell on the past when things go
Look for the opened doors all around you!

What is Love..??
Well one of my blog friend Khurram posted a post at his blog regarding ‘Love’ and asked a question that ‘What is true Love?’ So I am sharing my views and thoughts regarding this most beautiful feeling Love here and want you all too to add your valuable thoughts here regarding the topic.

There are many other feelings or emotions that are been associated with Love and most of us think that this is love but in actual it is not. For example:

· If you love some one because you think that he or she is really gorgeous ....then it's not love .. it's "Infatuation"
· If you love some one because you think that you shouldn't leave him/her because others think that you shouldn't ... then it's not love.. it's "Compromise"
If you love some one because you cannot leave him/her thinking that it would hurt his/her feelings .. then it's not love .. it's "Charity"
If you love some one because you share every thing with him/her ... then it's not love... it's "Friendship"

But if we talk of Love than this is something superior and much much more of all these. Love is a feeling that makes life more meaningful. One’s love can be his/her strength, it can be a motivational tool, it can be one’s power, and many more…..

True Love is when you feel the pain of the other person more than him/her even when he/she is stable and you cry for him/her, Love is when you get attracted to other people but stay with him/her without any regrets, and Love is when you are ready to do anything for that person without even thinking for a second. There can be much more that can be added to define true love because we all have different perceptions, experiences and way of thinking but still Love is a feeling that we all need, that we all desire, and it is a feeling that we all owns in any means. Its true
“Love is life” so let us all spread Love on this planet, our home Earth :) :)

Did you ever stop to wonder,
If one day it could be you;
Who cannot access buildings,
Do things you need to do?

For accidents or illness,
May strike at any time;
And introduce new challenges,
Into a life sublime.

So, when you see a person,
With a challenge at the fore;
Consider your own wishes,
Were the challenge at 'your' door.

With your imagination,
Take the time to muse;
How you would cope with,
"walking in the other person's Shoes".

Some challenges are welcome,
While some are not by choice;
Some challenges are painful,
Yet, in others we rejoice.

Every challenge we must face,
Is one from which we learn;
Another's understanding,
Is the gift for which we yearn.

So, approach each individual,
From the very start;
With knowing that the person,
Has a living, beating heart.

For with a heart comes feelings,
Not so unlike yours;
With a little understanding,
We can all help open doors.

Just a thought....

Life is not consistent & certain, everyone have to face good and bad, happiness and sadness in life. Its also true that happy moments are very few in our lifes in comparison of the sad or traggic ones but if we are strong enough and optimistic than we can handle and face anything in life easily. But sometimes in life we get tired and it becomes really hard to keep ourself positive. I always talk of hopes n positive thinking but me myself sometimes alos get tired and it becomes really hard for me to follow my own rules. We all are aware of what is right and wrong, we all know we should be optimistic and look into the brighter side of anything, etc. etc.... but still we all need to hear this from others and seek for moral support at times in life. I know i repeat many things at my blog known to all of us but still i guess we all need a reminder of it to freshen up all this in our minds. I dnt know to what extend i am successful in it but i am satisfied that atleast i attempt and tried to make myself plus others as well to be positive and hopeful with all the realities and cruel facts of life.

Loads of prayers and best wishes for all my fellows, stay healthy and smiling:) :)

Best regards,

The Quietness Of Strength
Sometimes in life we cannot show
The way we truly feel
We have to smile and just pretend
A facade that's far from real
Someone who pushes you to extremes
Or a person who isn't sincere
Sometimes you want to walk away
And act like you really don't care
They shouldn't take silence for weakness
For one day they may be surprised
Although they may think you're just a wimp
you may put tears in their eyes
The quietness of strength is a powerful thing
That may help you forgive though they're wrong
And although I know it's the hardest thing
Stooping to their level will not make you strong

Happiness and sadness both are part of life. Since last few days I m seriously n deeply thinking about the topic and trying to find out the main reason to it. I first evaluated my own self that what makes me happy or sad and on the basis of my experiences till now in life its “EXPECTATIONS” that could be not only but one of the main reasons. Few times back I saw this equation somewhere and now today I understood what it meant for after thinking deeply about it.


This is so very true when our expectations come to reality we are happy but when we don’t get what we expect it really hurts and make us sad n depressed.

So I think it’s better to keep our expectations limited and only and only from God. But still question is there that can we limit our expectations? Is it in our control?

Thursday, July 06, 2006


It's not something to buy,
but it's definitely something to try.
It will make you feel good,
as only happiness could.
It may come from success,
or from what you possess.
Or it may come from the support of family and good friends
on whom you can always depend.
But today I want to send some happiness your way
in hopes that you have a brighter day!

For all my blog friends with loads of prayers & best wishes:) :)

I got this in a forward mail and found it really worth sharing so here it is for all my blog friends hope u all like it too:) :)
I ran into a stranger as he passed by,"Oh excuse me please" was my reply.He said, "Please excuse me too;I wasn't watching for you."We were very polite, this stranger and I.We went on our way and we said goodbye.
But at home a different story is told,How we treat our loved ones, young and old.Later that day, cooking the evening meal,My son stood beside me very still.When I turned, I nearly knocked him down."Move out of the way," I said with a frown.He walked away, his little heart broken.I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.While I lay awake in bed,God's still small voice came to me and said,"While dealing with a stranger,common courtesy you use,but the family you love, you seem to abuse.Go and look on the kitchen floor,You'll find some flowers there by the door.Those are the flowers he brought for you.He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes."By this time, I felt very small,And now my tears began to fall.I quietly went and knelt by his bed;"Wake up, little one, wake up," I said."Are these the flowers you picked for me?"He smiled, "I found 'em, out by the tree.I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue."I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;I shouldn't have yelled at you that way."He said, "Oh, Mom, that's okay.I love you anyway."I said, "Son, I love you too,and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.
"FAMILYAre you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us ina matter of days.But the family we left behind will feel the lossfor the rest of their lives.And come to think of it, we pour ourselves moreinto work than into our own family,an unwise investment indeed,don't you think?So what is behind the story?
Do you know what the word FAMILY means?

We all human beings have different ways to see and have different perceptions about same thing. Its at our own that whether we see the dark side of the picture or brighter one. Our vision keeps us positive or negative and our vision impacts many other things in our life too.

When a person begins to see all goodness as being the goodness of God, all the beauty that surrounds him as the divine beauty, he begins by worshipping a visible God, and as his heart constantly loves and admires the divine beauty in all that he sees, he begins to see in all that is visible one single vision; all becomes for him the vision of the beauty of God.

His love of beauty increases his capacity to such a degree that great virtues such as tolerance and forgiveness spring naturally from his heart. Even things that people mostly look upon with contempt, he views with tolerance. In nature he sees God, in man he sees His image, and in art and poetry he sees the dance of God. The waves of the sea bring him the message from above, and the swaying of the branches in the breeze seems to him a prayer. For him there is a constant contact with his God.

...'If you wish to know God, you must know yourself.' How little man knows while he is in the intoxication of individualism! He thinks, 'I am a separate being; you are another; there is no connection between you and me, and we all have our own joys and free will.' Did man but know it, his life is dependent not only on the objects and things that keep the body alive, but also on the activity of a thousand minds in a day. ... Who then can say, 'I am an individual, independent and free, I can think as I wish, and I can do what I wish? ...

We are connected with one another. Our lives are tied together, and there is a link in which we can see one current running through all. There are many globes and lamps, and yet one current is running through all..."

A True, sad story holding a lesson.....
This I read few days back and found it worth sharing . So here it is for all of you:

My mom only had one eye.I hated her... she was such an embarrassment...She cooked for students & support the family. There was this one day during elementary school and my mom came.I was so embarrassed. How could she do this to me?I threw her a hateful look and ran out.

The next day at school..."Your mom only has one eye?!?!"...eeeee said a friend.I wished my mom would just disappear from this world.So I said to my mom, "Mom... Why don't you have the other eye?! If you're only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don't you just die?!!!"

My mom did not respond...I guess I felt a little bad, but at the same time, it felt good to thinkthat I had said what I'd wanted to say all this time... Maybe it was because my mom hadn't punished me, but I didn't think that I had hurt her feelings very badly.

That night...I woke up, and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water.My mom was crying there, so quietly, as if she was afraid that she might wake me.I took a look at her, and then turned away.Because of the thing I had said to her earlier,there was something pinching at me in the corner of my heart.Even so, I hated my mother who was crying out of her one eye. So I told myself that I would grow up and become successful.

Then I studied real hard.I left my mother and went to Singapore to study.

Then, I got married.I bought a house of my own. Then I had kids, too... Now I'm living happily as a successful man.I like it here because it's a place that doesn't remind me of my mom.

This happiness was getting bigger and bigger, when...

What?! Who's this?! It was my mother...Still with her one eye. I felt as if the whole sky was falling apart on me.Even my children ran away, scared of my mom's eye.And I asked her, "Who are you?!" "I don't know you!!!" as if trying to make that real. I screamed at her, "How dare you come to my house and scare my children!"


And to this, my mother quietly answered, "Oh, I'm so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address," and she disappeared out of sight.

Thank good ness... She doesn't recognize me. I was quite relieved.I told myself that I wasn't going to care, or think about this for the rest of my life.Then a wave of relief came upon me...

One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house in Singapore.So, lying to my wife that I was going on a business trip, I went. After the reunion, I went down to the old shack,that I used to call a house... Just out of curiosity

There, I found my mother fallen on the cold ground.But I did not shed a single tear. She had a piece of paper in her hand....It was a letter to me.

"My son...I think my life has been long enough now... And... I wont visit Singapore anymore...But would it be too much to ask if I wanted you to come visit me once in a while? I miss you so much..And I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion.But I decided not to go to the school.

For you...And I'm sorry that I only have one eye, and I was an embarrassment for you.

You see, when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye.As a mom, I couldn't stand watching you having to grow up with only oneeye... So I gave you mine...I was so proud of my son that was seeing a wholenew world for me, in my place, with that eye. I was never upset at you for anything you did..The couple times that you were angry with me.. I thought to myself, 'It's because he loves me..'

My son... Oh, my son... "

This message has a very deep meaning and is passed to remind people of thegoodness they have enjoy was because of others directly or indirectly. Pause a moment and consider your life!Be thankful of what you have today compared to many millions who do notlive their life as you do!

I woke up this morning I could see,
I could walk,I could talk,
I could smile,I could smell,
I could taste,I could laugh,
I had food to eat,I had water to drink,
the best thing of all,
there is 'peace'
Peace in the house, peace outside,
so still is the air, not a sound near or far,
the air is fresh, no smog or smoke,
no people about, not a soul in site,
it's great where I live,
not like some places I hear about
where they don't have 'peace'
I look at the houses, and i recall
the different races of people,
religions and creeds,
in nearly every house lives a person from afar
all living in harmony
respecting each other and conforming to my land
a street of many nations
where there is 'peace'
I wonder how many people don't have what I have today,
the world has changed, some live in fear,
and I won't be fearful, I walk free,
without any fear i love, i don't hate,
I smile because I have a lot to smile about
I really wish that the world was like my street,
for then,
there would be 'peace'

Including me myself I found many around talking of loneliness . I was bit confused about it that what it is actually, whether a positive thing or negative?? So since last few days I am thinking about this topic seriously and deeply to get the answers of my questions.

Well according to the definition of ‘Loneliness’ it’s a condition where we can only depend ourselves for any strength or mental nourishment. It is a period when we may be completely alone or, although we are with others, we may feel alienated from them and unable to share our unique experiences with any other person at that at that specific moment.

Feeling lonely sometimes is natural. Humans need to socialize. "We need to have a sense of belonging, we need feedback from others, recognition, and a sense that there are others who care about us, understand us, and that we matter to them." Solitude is not always bad. We have all enjoyed being alone- with nature, or music, or books. It is when we feel depression, boredom, and meaninglessness then we have to act. Prolonged loneliness can become fatal if not dealt with as it can deprive a person of his will to live on.

Well I have placed here my findings and views about the topic and I would like all of you also to add your views about it.

Prayers for all.

The Falling Leaves And Life
All colors have faded on the weather-worn leaves,
Which, reaching their lives' final stage,
Relinquish their holds on the ancient oak tree,
And succumb to the pressures of age.
A gentle breeze catches them one after one
And tenderly nudges them around
To appear they are tiptoeing about in the air
While they flutter and float to the ground.
A few leaves tenaciously cling to the tree,
Although they are shriveled and dry,
But the others they follow and soon spiral down
To land on the pile where they lie.
The leaves have returned to the earth whence they came,
Enhancing the soil they have fed
And providing the space in their brief cycle span
For new life to appear in their stead.

7 Steps to Take Control of Your Life
Taking control of your life is getting in touch with your values, setting meaningful goals and identifying your vision. To be in control of where life is taking you means being more productive, dealing more effectively with stress, having the ability to solve problems, handing change and developing healthy optimism. Start with these 7 steps and you are on your way.
1. Get in touch with your values:

When we feel like we are working hard but not getting anywhere it is probably because our priorities are not aligned with our values. To begin identifying your values ask yourself these questions:

Ø What is important to me? Wisdom, freedom, happiness, equality, security, self-respect, romantic love, money, power, comfortable living, fresh air, beauty, controlling others, etc. Rate these values.
Ø Who is important to me?
Ø What or who is most important? Be honest with yourself.
Ø What do I need to do to feel good about myself?
Ø How would you feel if someone you respect knew this was one of your values?
Ø Would you stick by this value?
Ø Is it who you are?
Ø How is this value affecting your life?

Make a list of your 10 top values. Of that 10 choose 4 and of the 4 choose your top two. From this exercise you will see where you need to focus your time and effort.
2. Decide what motivates you:

If tomorrow you knew you could do anything and not fail what would you do? Is there something you are passionate about but are afraid of trying? If you have no idea what your passion is spend some time reflecting on it. To start, write down the types of activities you like to do and the types of activities (hobbies) that make you feel good when you do them. What are your special skills and talents ? Don't be shy ? Usually if it's something we like to do we are probably good at it. What inspires you?
3. Set Goals:

In order to get what you really want you must start by setting goals. Goals fuel your intent and make your desires concrete. Start by writing the goals for this year in area of personal relationships, work, health, finances and spirituality. List five goals in each category (add more categories if you like). Then break them down into monthly and then weekly goals. Focusing on what you intend in your life will bring it to reality. You create your life ? So start now by setting your goals.
4. Take Action:

Goals are worthless without action. If you have written long-term and short-term goals and prioritized them, you have a plan of action. Just take it one step at a time and do something everyday that takes you closer to where you want to be. Remember however, to live in the present and be thankful for what you have now, enjoying the journey toward your goals
5. Manage Your Time:

We all have the same amount of time to use in a day. Why do some people a lot done while others do very little? You have complete control of how much time you spend productively and how much you waste. Plan your days and prioritize your time to get the most out of the time you have. Use time-wasters like standing in line or waiting in a doctor's office to catch up on reading or something else that is important to you.
6. Do What Needs to be Done:

Do what has to be done to get to where you want to go. Whether it is a mundane task or internal work, putting it off gets us nowhere. You are either going forward or falling behind; there is no such thing as standing still. Sometimes when we work on ourselves we stop when we get to a place that we need to change. Change can be difficult when we have to step out of our comfort zone. The more change is needed the more difficult it is.
7. Self-discipline:

Self-discipline is the final step that takes all that we have learned and puts it into action. This is a trait that for most of us has to be developed. To reach our goals we must visualize them as already being accomplished and have faith that we can reach them. When you believe in and trust yourself and have enough desire, self-discipline comes easily.

The secret of life is to make the best
of whatever comes along,
Make every day fresh and new,
Go in search of knowledge and experience.
Let your questions and
your answers reconcile.
Do your best to remember
that the best kind of learning curveis
an educated smile.
Share your magic with the people
who share your memories.
Let your feelings run deep.
Be in touch with the people
who live in your heart.
Be a caring person who plays for keeps.
To really know what success means, earn it.
Don't rely on some elevator to get you there.
The higher the floor you want to reach,t
he more important it is to take the stairs.
The easiest lessons to remember
are the ones you learn the hard way!
Appreciate the little things
that make each day
unique and special.

Did you know ???
  • Did you know that when you envy someone, it's because you really like that person?
  • Did you know that those who appear to be very strong in heart, are real weak and most susceptible?
  • Did you know that those who spend their time protecting others are the ones that really need some one to protect them?
  • Did you know that people who occupy themselves by keeping others company or helping others are the ones that actually need your company and help?
  • Did you know that when you help someone, the help is returned in two folds?
  • Did you know that those who need more of you are those that don't mention it to you?
  • Did you know that it's easier to say what you feel in writing than saying it to someone in the face?But did you know that it has more value when you say it to their face?
  • Did you know that what is most difficult for you to say or do is much more valuable than anything that is valuable that you can buy with money?
  • Did you know that if you ask for something in faith, your wishes are granted?
  • Did you know that you can make your dreams come true, like falling in love, becoming rich, staying healthy, if you ask for it by faith, and if you really knew, you'd be surprised by what you could do.
