Life as we know it

“Life is how we see it.” Some similar quote may have been said by someone famous & wise, but this is what I have realized lately about life. Few of you may agree to it & most of you may not. I don’t hold grudges against you, just chill 😀

Why I reached this conclusion? I have been a part of some devastating life changing incidents lately. Those have let me reach to the above statement.

I have a 6-month married cousin, who is just 1-year elder to me & has been my partner-in-crime since childhood days. He suffered a minor heart stroke 2 weeks back & had to be admitted to a hospital. Doctor said it was all normal & he has to cut out eating fast food & fried food of outside. The best way to live for him without further similar problems is NOT to eat anything spicy outside.

This kept me thinking. At such a tender age(20s’), restrictions have started to grow its root in his life. But then there’s no other way for him.

I had another cousin, yes, I know I wrote HAD because she expired some days back. She was a teenager and this mishap happened because she had some sugar related health issues. That news came as a shock. I couldn’t take her out of my mind. She’s the one who introduced me to this wonderful song, Amnesia(one among the many). She made me love One Direction. She’s left a void, no doubt.

Both the incidents happened within 2 days and they were quite a setback. Life is sensitive. Life is never in our control. We are always under the obligation that life will vanish into thin air and never be found. We, as humans, are helpless creatures.

Why did I mention this here? Because I know we all have trouble, shortcomings, & our own set of problems in life. We have tension of job & family & studies. But we have to make sure that it don’t get into our brain. The troubles should me thought of as a guest visitor in our home & not a permanent resident. If you have the power, don’t open your doors to trouble, but then they find their way inside somehow.

I have problems too. I have job-related tension and other stuff but then after going through the above 2 incidents, I realized, thinking & over thinking won’t help me in any way. The only thing that will help me is THOUGHTFUL ACTION.


I have to do what I love. I don’t have to invest a single second thinking about the things that drain me from within. If I don’t like someone, l will leave them. If I don’t like my job, I will leave it. If I love someone, I will let them know how much they mean to me. Because, in the end, nothing will count except how I felt myself & how I made others feel. So, feel positive things & try to spread this inner positive feeling to others. We all need it. Sharing is the best way of communication.

P.S.: I want to say, “I am back, bitches!” but I can’t 😉 I will start blogging again soon(gimme some weeks) and today’s song pick is Lush life by Zara Larrson. I will also do the remaining videos of AtoZ challenge but I am occupied as of now so they will be coming in 2-3 months time 😉

You, Me & God.. We all are selfish!!

It is said, “There are 3 sides of a situation.. Your’s, Mine and the other’s side.”

Selfish.. The word in itself generates a bad impulse in our brain and a foul sounding word.. According to some WE ALL CAN BE TERMED ‘SELFISH’.. But are we all really selfish??

Every thing can be proved as selfish, but in reality it’s hard to say so..

Can you call a blood donor selfish?
Can you call an army officer selfish?
Can you call a doctor selfish?
Can you call a mother selfish?
Can you call God selfish?

Below is how one can explain the good deeds of all the above as Selfish.. We all see this single world from multiple angles..

Before proving the above as SELFISH, let’s first define the word.. A person who sees his profit only and takes necessary steps to keep himself happy irrespective of what happens to others is known as SELFISH..

So now we go ahead for the proof..

Blood donor donates blood because it’s for a family member.. He wants his family member to live.. Because he thinks that he can’t survive or imagine his world without that person and so he donates his blood.. For his own sake of happiness he donates blood and he is selfish..

An Army officer protects his Motherland and fights his enemies because he wants to see his family members and his countrymen in peace and then he’ll be happy.. so again to make himself happy he makes this contribution and hence he is also selfish..

A doctor saves the lives of his patients or atleast tries his best and goes to limits to save them because it will make him proud of himself and make him happy.. and thus he is also slefish..

A Mother is the one who does everything she can to make her child happy in every way and give her child everything she herself didn’t get in her childhood.. She wants to see her child doing all those things she couldn’t do in her childhood and this makes her happy and so a mother is also slefish..

God.. We all are the children of God.. and he wants all of us to stay in unity and happily.. He does his best to balance the nature when we(His children) try to create imbalance.. God wants to see His creation as perfect and happy and that makes Him selfish..
But the naked truth is that whatever we do WE ALWAYS WANT TO MAKE OURSELVES HAPPY..

If we make ourselves happy by making others Happy, then it is indeed a good deed and a selfless one..
If we make ourselves happy by making others unhappy, then it is being SELFISH!!

Be selfish in the selfless way,
