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 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The engine or the driver?

Woah! I am on fire lately because I am reading books again regularly. It’s maybe because I have switched jobs and I am getting some more ‘me-time’ than usual or because I have fallen again in love with books and I am spending quality time with them.

I am observing things and all this observation is leading to many findings. I am compelled to think whether I am a driver or just an engine? Am I a leader or just a soldier and a warrior? Because the engine faces the accident first. Because the soldier dies first.

What made me think this? Maybe because I am not doing things differently. I am not thinking out of the box. I am rooted. I am scared of change. I have started loving my comfort zone.

To become a driver, a leader, I have to leave all this and start doing things better, forget my comfort zone, and start thinking out of the box. I am ready to think that I need change but am I ready to embrace that change? Am I ready to expand my comfort zone? What do you think?

I know that I don’t have any other option and that’s the best thing for me. I have to do it all. I have to suffer and I have to toil hard and I have to get things done. I have to smile, smile from my heart and be satisfied with my efforts.

Being content will make me a leader maybe because I will be in total control of myself and the outside factors cannot affect me. For that, I have to be satisfied and also find inspiration from others and my surrounding.

Below is my video about how I find inspiration from people.

 

I am trying my best to be a leader but for that, I have to keep on learning and expressing my knowledge via actions.

P.S.: I have been just a name in the Blogging world lately and I am trying to turn the tide and be back with more frequently. I finished ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ book and now I am reading ‘The Girl on the Train’. Till that, keep smiling and enjoy Capsize of Frenship and Emily Warren ❤ Promise to see y’all soon 😛

 

Struggling days and me..

In most of the cases, and also different times in my life, I have been there during the hard times, the struggling days. But I am never there when things settle down. When things become stable.

Similarly, I can predict that I won’t be there again to reap the fruits of my hard work. I feel like I am a person silently working as a charm, never complaining, always reliable, totally content with whatever happens with me. I am happy to be such a person but it ain’t always a beautiful picture. It ain’t always the rosy ending.

This time again, I will fade away. This time again, I will march away from the place where reward will be waiting for me. I know it’s too early and difficult to say goodbye because of the bonds and relationships that are formed. But we all, especially myself, gotta look at the bigger picture, which holds more sweeter fruit for me(I hope so) than the one I am leaving behind.

See you,

The guy readying for the new struggle ❤

P.S.: Today’s song pick is Fall by Ed Sheeran(again). I was introduced to this song by a good friend and I love it. And also, check out my new motivational video in YouTube. How’s this weekend serving you?

 

 

Woah! What a weekend!

Once in a while, we should have time for ourselves or in my sister’s words, “pamper yourself.” I did exactly the same by going to Cubbon park alone and read 100+ pages of “The Count of Monte Cristo”. I stress on 100+ pages because I was able to do that after so many months and years. It’s an achievement for me. I also watched the long awaited movie Dead poets society and it was so good. CARPE DIEM is something which I will also have to ingrain in my character. Such a touching movie and on top of that I also watched

I also watched the long awaited movie “Dead poets society” and it was so good. CARPE DIEM is something which I will also have to ingrain in my character. Such a touching movie and on top of that I also watched “Kaabil” with my roommates. It definitely was a great weekend. But hey! Saturday is today and all those things were done by me on Thursday and Friday. You ask didn’t I have

But hey! Today is Saturday and all those things were done by me on Thursday and Friday. You ask didn’t I have office? I had but I took leave, just like that, as ‘me-time’ because it is what life is all about.

You know what my resolution of 2015 was? It was to spend 1 sleepless night per month and I successfully achieved it. But with passage of time, we change, we evolve. Similarly, now I am trying to sleep early and wake up early and sleep proper. I am on track for that but this weekend, I slept late and woke early and I was happy because of the old times sake. I was also able to be the old Darshith I used to be.

I am loving my ‘me-time’ and now I am looking forward to making more videos and read more books and watch more movies. Hope you’re also having a perfect weekend! What’s the definition of a perfect weekend for you? Let me know so that I can also do some of the exciting stuff just like you.

P.S.: Check out my latest video and feel free to share your views. I am in love with Ed Sheeran’s songs Castle on the Hill & Shape of you! ❤

 

 

 

From Blind spot to Yellow spot

We’re born blind

We’re born naive

We’re born innocent

We’re born to be born again

We’re always in God’s blind spot

And there we remain

Until we give our best

Until we try hard

Until we give it all

Then only, slowly and gradually

We start our journey from

The Blind spot to

The yellow spot

And, life starts changing

From good to better to best

The journey ain’t easy

It can be traveled alone

We gotta have faith in us

We gotta have friends to support us

We have to start this journey

Sooner or later

Or regret it forever

And I tell you

Regret ain’t the best of things for you

It’s always working hard

Giving it a shot

Giving it several tries

And succeeding

Because we got one life

Because we gotta prove

Because being in the blind spot

Ain’t so beautiful

So, go ahead and

start your journey to

The Yellow spot

It’s waiting for your presence

P.S.: This topic is so close to me and the idea was given by Aditi. She is a great blogger and has awesome personality. Another blogger, Shweta aka Bollywoodarian, requested a vlog on Insecurites and here it is. Hope the vlog helps everyone in some way ❤

What you do in the weekends..

Seriously! You have come to this post to know what to do in the weekends?

Nice! I will share what I do and I would like to do 😉

What I do in the weekends–
= Spend quality time with friends
= Roam near about B’lore because we are new to this city and one can always get to see beautiful girls around 😛
= Go to parties and pubs and talk to strangers(read gals) and be-friend them 😉
= Make motivational videos because it’s almost impossible to make them in the weekdays
= Do office work because work never ends 😦
= Watch some movies(because I am not watching TV shows anymore)

And yes, the weekend is done and dusted and bids adieu far earlier than expected 😞
Tell me, what do you do in the weekend? No matter weekend or weekday, all we gotta make sure that we have a good night’s sleep and for that, we gotta toil hard, watch out for our dear ones, try to spread smiles, and feel content no matter the situation we are in. No doubt, tomorrow will definitely be more good, more beautiful, more bright, more awesome, just like you, so try to make your today the best.
Yo! No shave November is on 😉 what is up with you, guys? Enjoying life? Enjoying weekend? Keep smiling and spread smiles and if you want me to make videos on any topic, do let me know 😉
