Willing to leave the starting point?

We’re standing still

Waiting to decide

Which way to proceed

With some willpower and confidence

We decide to take Path-A

But there’s a doubt

What if Path-A is not the best option for us?

What if we will find whatever we want in other paths?

And this feeling of leaving behind other options

And pursuing JUST one is what keeps us guessing

The game of options is tricky

Where winning comes with a huge sense of PRIDE

And losing it comes with a BIGGER SENSE OF GUILT

But, until I know, life doesn’t work that way

We cannot decide which is the best path for us

By standing there at the starting point

We have to take steps

We have to walk

We have to run

We have to hustle

Then only it works

Then only we make progress

And just maybe reach to the endpoint

So, leaving the starting point

Is just as important as choosing a path

Choosing a way of life

And seeing, how far we go

If it works, let the pride flow in

If it doesn’t, do not get disheartened

Because if we can start once

We can always start again

That too with added experience from the past

So, are you ready too to leave the starting point far behind?

AtoZ challenge Day03 (C for C%$#*&)

Hello, people! How are you guys? I am back again after a Sunday break for the challenge ๐Ÿ˜‰

A break from regular work always rejuvenates us & makes us work even harder after the break.

Welcome to the 3rd-day post of A to Z challenge. Today we’ll talk on the alphabet ‘C’.

โ€œSmiles here & smiles thereโ€ has gone 1 level up from 1st April. I have made a YouTube channel in which I will share inspirational thoughts & other random yet relevant thoughts & also some of my personal experiences. You can subscribe to the channel @ Darshith Badiyani.

Options are good to have but when we just have to choose one among many, somewhere within we think that it would have been better if we had chosen a different word. My options with ‘C’ were Claim, calm, casual but I didn’t choose any of those. You can check out the video to see the ‘C’ word on which we discuss and this word is IMPORTANT in the life of each & every one of us. Without this word, there’s no life.

 

With this new channel, I hope to spread smiles here & smiles there & smiles THERE too ๐Ÿ˜€

P.S.: If you can connect to my videos then you can easily like/share/comment/subscribe to my YouTube channel to be regularly updated by videos. It’s the new version of Smiles here & smiles there. Today’s song pick is Count on me by Bruno Mars. My inspirational people from WP with ‘C’ are Chaitali & Chris. Chris is a great photographer & Chaitali writes on real life experiences, love, life & whatever ๐Ÿ˜›

I also forgot to mention other inspirational people from blogging arena who inspire me with alphabet ‘A’ and they are Archana(& Desh too), Alok, Adi, Ankita, Akiraa, Akhila. I may again forget to add people in their respective alphabet post. So I will add them in the upcoming ones. Thank you for being a part of my life ๐Ÿ™‚

Through the peephole..

I don’t want to be outside
Knowing you through a peephole
I want you to open the gates
And let me flood in
Know you wholly
I am done
Living life your way
Knowing the parts of you
You wanted me to see
Now either let me see you wholly
Know you wholly
Let full submission be a part of us
Or cover the peephole
And bid me farewell
Because peephole is
Not letting me live
And not letting me leave
So, help me
And choose something
As I always said to you
You have the reigns & chains
It’s time again for you
To choose from options
And get me or forget me
I am just a closed door away
With the smile you like to see
With the heart you like to love
With the words you like to hear
Hopefully with the love you like to have

Evil & options..

due credits to BizHat.com

Options are good. But options to be bad is also bad and confusing.

I won’t say ย “Just Imagine” some kind of scenario and ask a remedy/solution because you may opt for stopping imagination and then it will be a waste of time for all.

This is reality. My reality. Everyone’s reality.

I want you to go to that phase of YOUR LIFE and provide your answers or some remedy.

There’s a case and you gotta decide.
Option1- You’ll become evil(to some) and others won’t want to be with you anymore. In short, 100% evil.
Option2- You’ll become evil(to some) but people will use double faces with you. In short, 20%-30% evil.
Option3- You’ll opt to die. You won’t be evil anymore because there will be no you no more.

By evil, I mean that you have to leave some important people behind in your past and make some crunch decisions.

What will you choose? Ever been into such a scenario?

Your thoughts would be appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

May be this is just Monday blues thoughts in my mind ๐Ÿ˜‰

Being Happy is an option!

There are always 2 sides of a coin. Either you select heads or tails.
Similarly, each and every situation in life can have 2 sides. We can name these sides. Pull and Push.

Every second we live is an option.. And every second we choose..
To live or die..
To breathe this very second or not..
To wake up early in the morning or not..
To let the kids have icecream or not..
To go to a temple or not..
To make ourselves smile or not..

Yes, we decide at every second we live.. We may not realise it because we have gotten used to it that the option and the decision are taken as a reflex but they are still options.
They sometimes pull you back or push you ahead.

From these names itself you can know what these 2 sides do. Either they pull you back and try to halt your progress, or they push you through the darkened difficult path by providing lights on the way.

Its totally in the nature of an individual, how we perceive the situation and then decide whether we want to be pulled or pushed by it.
Now, choosing is difficult but all decisions comes with its baggage of NOT choosing the other side.
So make sure whatever side you choose, you stay happy with it. And,make up your mind that you could never had been more happy if ever you had choosen the other side.

Winning over our mind is the most difficult battle. Even difficult than being in the death bed or being in a free falling to-be-crashed aeroplane, because if we are able to make truce with our mind regarding the happiness and closure we have in the present, then that’s victory and death can’t snatch that feeling of peace from you.

career-options

Not every situations are same, so an individual have to analyze and decide whether he will be more HAPPY(comfortable and happy are NOT the same words), if he pull or push.
You can take suggestions of those who you think can guide you, but take decision yourself and hold your stand after that and don’t point fingers to those who helped you in taking decisions. It’s you who gotta live with the decision.

Keep choosing whats best,
Darshith.

Run against yourself!!

All our life, we believe in running. Some run from home to work, some from work to home, some from one work to another, some on the treadmill, some in the games played in laptops, some from responsibilities, some from laziness, some towards comfortness, some towards each other, some towards one another, some from each other.. Whoa so much running and yet we’re never planning to stop!!

Take a break.. Have a deep breath.. Have a moment for your ownself.. Have a life.. That ideal Peaceful life..

Life is not about a sprint, it’s about a marathon. Running hard for a small period & then gasping for breath won’t help much. We have to be consistent. We have to run at a general average speed, so that no matter how pumped up we are or how tired we are, we must try to hold on to that average speed & maintain it. Hold on to the base speed. That’s what will take your far.

Competing is good. But we have to first make sure we compete against the right opponent.
Choosing the RIGHT opponent is difficult.. Him or Her or Them or Me??
If you make any other guy your opponent for competition, then you’ll aim to be like them & in the process you’ll lose your individual uniqueness or identity. And also, once you surpass them you’ll have to find another opponent & then again do the same drill.

But, let’s say if you choose yourself. You got many advantages like you will try to be(and you will definitely be) a good human being than what you were yesterday. You will try to improve yourself with such an opponent whom you know so very well & surpassing them will not only take wits but will also give you a profound sense of happiness. Run from the monster inside you towards the angel in you. You don’t have to keep on changing your opponent’s, because what you are today, you weren’t yesterday & you won’t be tomorrow. Tomorrow also you will evolve.. Today you’re evolving.. Yesterday also you evolved..

Run & Evolve

Choose the best for you.. Your friends, family, near & dear ones are the energy boosters in your life, who will help you overcome the hurdles you face in this marathon.. Seek their help, heed their advice but ultimately do what you think it’s good for you because you gotta face the consequences of whatever decision you take, not any of them.

Keep winning against yourself,
Darshith.
