It’s that time of the year

Yo!

It’s that time of the year again

Where things start to make sense

When realization hits hard

When guilt starts to fade away

And also the things start to make sense

It’s that time of the year again

When we look into the past 9 months

To figure the good, the bad, and the ugly

To rise above all the troubles

To hold the damned torch as high as possible

To say Thank you and Sorry to all

For the part, they played or are still playing

It’s that time of the year again

To access my life and try to bring positive changes

To start looking after my health

Both mental and physical

When all that matters is ME

and some more people 😉

It’s that time of the year again

To understand the lyrics of the songs

To understand the meaning of the words said

To connect the dots and realize stuff

To grow and let grow

To live and let live

To be happy and make others happy

To smile and let smile

Because smiles are here and smiles are there

Smiles are everywhere

No matter the time

The reason

The occasion

Smiles prevails

So let all smile

No matter the time of the year 😀

P.S.: I am back to B’lore from my Family trip to Gujarat. It was a great time with parents/sisters/relatives. I loved it all. Will share the pics in the next post 😉 I am proud of my younger sister because lately she’s been listening to English songs and she knows Careless Whisper of George Michael 😀 She’s growing awesome. I am also proud of my elder sister because of the wise words/thoughts she shared with me while our return trip to B’lore. She definitely has a way of letting the audience think like her and also because I couldn’t go anywhere else as I was on the flight so I HAD TO listen to her and she really made sense 😛

That night

There’s always a beginning

The pilot

Chapter 101

And that’s why there was that night

Our first together as friends

Just introduced that same day

Talking in syllables

Trying not to sound interested

Cutting the conversations midway

And then it came

The wise evening

With its cool breeze and drizzle

The weather turned class

The tension faded

Conversations became longer

Longer became the day

Food was shared

And so were many other things

Like favorite color, movie, books

The more the time passed

The more close we became

And soon the night fell on us

Our other friends

Receded to their beds

But we weren’t tried

We wanted to share more and discuss more

We didn’t want that day to finish so soon

And the night was young

And so were her eyes, her lips

Her curly hair swaying our her face

I so wanted to brush them aside

But I was scared

Maybe I will face yet another rejection in life

But then she came near

And hold my hand

And arms in arms

We walked down the road

She in her bubbly mood

Moving her head to and fro

Me smiling silently

Thinking where was she for so many years

But, it all didn’t matter

Because now we were together

I am grateful for that night

Which got us so closer

And also for the friends

Which got us introduced

And this is how that beautiful night

Is still young in both our hearts ❤

P.S.: As you know, I got a YouTube channel where I share my travel/motivation talks. You can subscribe to the channel @ Darshith Badiyani. Today’s song is Get Lucky of  Daft Punk. How is your September going on? I am going to Gujarat from 22nd Sept to 2nd October. If you’re there and want to meet, please do let me know. Yo! Peace out! 😉

Let there be everything

Yo!

In this beautiful month of September

Let there be work

Let there be play

Let there be smiles

Let there be satisfaction

Let there be humor

Let there be gifts

Let there be music

Let there be books

Let there be laughter

Let there be hugs

Let there be travel

Let there be festive

Let there be silence

Let there be ignorance

Let there be judgment

Let there be anger

Let there be sleep

Let there be rest

Let there be excitement

Let there be life

Let there be you

Let there be me

Let there be us ❤

P.S.: This is for each individual out there who lives in routine facing some of all these things. Let there be love. I am becoming a fan of this song of Bruno Mars named That’s what I like.  Feel free to check out my motivational/travel videos @ Darshith Badiyani.

 

Be brave, be selfish, be you!

Yo!
Me!
I am me!
Meet me!
Greet me!
I am a speck of dust
Yet, I am important
You know why?
Because I am alive
Because I exist
I breathe
I laugh
I smile
I cry
I express
I feel
It’s all important
For me because
That’s what makes me who I am
And I am awesome!
Got any doubts?
Please, don’t ask!
Do I care?
Yeah, damn, I don’t!
I love vulgar words
I love to express myself
I love to show who I am actually
I care for you
I like and love you
But you’re never a priority
Because my priority is me
It was difficult to digest it
Learn it
And, thankfully, I did!
I am everything, I know it!
I am grateful for all the things
The sun, the sky, the moon,
the flowers, people, family,
smiles here and smiles there,
hugs, stolen kisses, winks
All the things
But, all of those stop existing
If I stop to exist
If I don’t take care of myself
If I am not my own priority
I am grateful for these selfish thoughts
It has made me happy
It has given me time to invest on things I love
I am happy to be selfish if that makes me happy
Because smiles here, on my face, are important
So are yours, but first,
smiles here and then smiles there
If it is smiles there first,
then for you, it is too,
smiles here and smiles there,
So always the first person,
I, me, myself
I am grateful for such happy times

Be brave, be selfish, be you!

 

Last weekend I went on a #soloTrek to Shivagange and I loved it. You can tell I am selfish. The hell I care. I love to spend time with myself. If you don’t love/like to be alone, trust me, you’re boring. Start making your life an adventure. Do things you fear. I feared to go on a solo trek, I did it. I conquered it. I was 2640.3 feet above the ground, bare foot, scared, but moving forward. I have shared pics and videos of the place. Feel free to go to the place, if you’re near by Bangalore.

P.S.: One of the new songs which I like to listen to is What lovers do by Maroon5.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mistakes and how to analyze them

We all do mistakes and some of us do blunders, including me. But, wise people are those who learn from their mistakes and come out victorious by not doing the same mistake purposely.

“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” – Johnny Cash

Wanna know what kind of mistakes I have done?

  • Not listen to my parents in some of the situations, which led to my loss/harm somehow.
  • Not trying to save money even after working for around 3+ years. I should start using a piggy bank.
  • Buying so many books a regular basis(No! This ain’t a mistake), but not able to read all those books is. I cry at the sight of those beautiful creatures sitting there in the cupboard and all I can do is bat my eye.
  • I am a selfish guy. See! There it is out in this universe and I feel relieved. I have been telling this to most of my friends and frankly speaking, I am getting various reactions. Why am I doing this? Because we all are selfish and I want everyone to accept it. Just try to think and assess.

I can keep on going but all I want to let you know that we’re full of mistakes and we gotta accept the fact that we have to keep on evolving to have a good life so that we learn more from our failures and mistakes than our successes.

If my cell phone falls from my hand, it’s because I was careless or because of something other or someone else. If the same is done by someone else, I start thinking that they did knowingly.

So, to tell in short is, my mistakes are granular in size and other’s mistakes are humongous or blunders.

Ideally speaking, this should not be acceptable, but, as humans, we tend to do it. We tend to be impartial and follow favoritism. Now, don’t tell that you’re not your own favorite. I love myself.

So, before getting angry and trying to judge others based on their mistakes, think by being in their shoes and by being rational.

Good luck and do check out my video on the same topic.

P.S.: How are you, people? This is Rains of Castermere from GOT. Just 1 more month for GOT new season ❤ I love B’lore and my life. What about you? Do you love the place where you stay? Do you love how you spend 24 hrs of each day? Please do share your thoughts 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Taming my own demons

It’s difficult, just like everything else. Or, it’s easy, just like everything else.

Henry Ford rightly said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t — you’re right.”

With me, it’s the same. And I am sure, with you all, it’s the same too. But my inner heart says that most of us just fail to have a strong will power of DOING IT.  To have a strong will power means to have a strong character. To have a strong character means to have a strong guidance throughout our life(childhood, youth, and next). To have good guidance means to have good people around ourselves everywhere(home, office, friends). So finally, to have good people around ourselves, we ourselves have to be good first. To be a good person, we have to be good at heart.

To become or remain good we have to tame our demons, regularly. It’s similar to an app’s update because new changes and features keep on coming. Or, new bugs like the Ransomware virus ruling the market since 2 days. So, it’s important to evolve and keep on taming our demons to stay good and then only good things will happen.

How to tame our demons? Good that you ask. First, we have to be strong mentally to face them, keeping aside our fear of facing and also the fear of losing. Then, we have to prepare for the face-off. What to do when we actually face our demons? What tricks we can play? Like Mohandas Ranchod Das’ words from the Movie ‘3 idiots’, i.e., ‘Aal izz welll’, we have to keep on reminding ourselves that no matter the outcome, it’s always in our favor or whatever happens, happen for a reason and we just have to try and forget about the outcome.

Taming is not an easy process and a time consuming one too but it definitely gives the expected result if tried regularly and with dedication. Many try to stop smoking or drinking or biting nails(yeah, that’s me!) but we fail the first time. Forget the first time, we fail the 50th time too. I have always failed in the case of biting nails but in the back of my mind, it’s there. I want to get rid of this bad habit and someday I will. When I will be mentally ready and then, I will let you all know about it.

We have to keep on fighting and trying to be better the next day always. That’s the key. One of the other reasons is in the below video. Feel free to have a look.

 

P.S.: Today’s song pick is All my Loving of Paul McCartney. I love this song and this guy and Paul is in Pirates of Carribean 5 movie so it will be interesting. See you soon and how are you all? Miss me? Want me to travel to a place? Want me to gift you a book? Please let me know in the comment section ❤
