Own your life

Yo!

I am back again! How are you guys? Watching FIFA WC 2018? If yes, which team are you supporting? Please tell Germany! 😀

There are life lessons in every simple thing. It’s on us to recognize and work on it.

For example, I support Germany in football and they lost their 1st game against Mexico. There are many friends and people who went ahead and criticized them. It is fine because they played poorly. But then, they are also human beings and once in a while, they cannot meet our expectations. Accept it! Own it!

Similarly, we suffer many failures in our lives, loss of dear ones, investing our time and energy in wrong places and wrong people, and then when we know it is not good, we become harsh on ourselves and don’t accept or own them. We don’t tell people that we did something wrong. We ignore those things.

But, if there is something good, like a good TV series recommendation, or a good book, we own it saying we recommended it.

So, if we learn to own the good, the bad, and the ugly things of OUR OWN life, then things would become better.

I would have loved to make a vlog and share along with this but I don’t know why I stopped making vlogs 😀 Trust me, I am going to make vlogs again, soon!

P.S.: Germany is out of FIFA WC 2018 because they played poor but they will be back just like previous times and I root for them. I trust them just like I trust myself.  Yo! Own your life and your values. Follow my YouTube channel, Darshith Badiyani, for motivation videos, which are definitely already there and coming soon in the future. Happy weekend! Half of 2018 is almost done 😛

Work-Life balance in Software jobs

Yo!

I am into software and I love to explore what my future would be if I stay in the same career for forever 😀 It’s similar to the question which we all are asked in interviews like, “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” 😉

FYI, sometimes, not always, I go to the restroom in office and read epub 😛 If any of my colleagues are reading this, trust me, my stomach is always upset with me for not eating more food 😛

So, this week, while I was in the restroom, reading a post,  I could hear 2 other colleagues talking. They are senior(read married)  😉

Senior1: Hey man, how are you?

Senior2: I am good. You?

Senior1: I am good too. How is everyone at home?

Senior2: Everyone is good. I think my son has forgotten me!

Senior1: Why? What happened?

Senior2: Because when he wakes up, I am getting ready for office. By the time, I leave for the office, he’s taking bath. I come to the office, he goes to school. When I return from the office, he’s already asleep.

So, now you know, what it is to be married and work in a software company. Good luck to me 😛 Don’t worry, I ain’t getting married anytime sooner 😉

P.S.: Yo! How are you, folks? I know, I have been writing more blogs than making more vlogs? Is something wrong with me? Of course not! It’s just that, I want to rejoice writing more than videos. But, the videos are coming 😉 Maybe 2018 will be full of videos 😛 If not done yet, then check out my YouTube channel, Darshith Badiyani. Today’s song is Ain’t no love in the heart of the city by Bobby Bland.

POV!

How was the weekend?

For us, it was a long weekend because of Diwali. But as always, the weekends rushes by at the speed of light and the weekdays drags itself at the speed of a snail.

We’re back again in our respective cubicles, doing our respective work, savoring our respective favorite coffee in our respective mugs 😀

So, as we’re talking so much about PERSPECTIVE, let’s talk in details.

We all have our respective perspective of Life 😉 As Dirish says, “We all have our own A take on Life” and that’s true!

Since last many a weeks, I have been learning things. Things related to perspective by talking to more people, by listening to them, by trying to see from their POV. It is helping a bit but it’s difficult to think from their perspective.

I think all my life(which is mere 26 years), I have been trying to look at everything from my perspective and never think about the other person. It may be because of several reasons. No one pointed this out to me earlier, hence I didn’t realize it. Now as I am being questioned, I am feeling cornered that how can anything be wrong when the perspective is correct?

POVs are a great way to express our thoughts and again a great way to get out of any situation, but when we realize that our perspective has been defeated and that other’s perspective is more purposeful and right, then what do we do?

That’s what I am going through. I am not saying, I am wrong or I am right. I am just saying that I don’t see my POV as the BEST anymore and that I have to consider other’s perspective too.

There’s a quote by someone very talented, “We judge those whom we don’t know, and if we don’t know them, why do we have to judge them?” 😀

I don’t know why there is so much of confusion within me nowadays that it’s started to make kind of a mess. I sincerely feel like the above quote by Mr. Lennon ❤ I love that guy and his words and his songs. This quote, in particular, is close to me. I feel like a loser and God, all at the same time 😀

Hope I can sort things out sooner rather than later. I think traveling will help me and I am doing that now on a regular basis. If any of my friends are available then with them or else I love to travel solo too ❤ What are your preferences while traveling? You like to pack everything with you or you keep it light? Do you call yourself a traveler or a tourist?

P.S.: I was reading one of the previous blogs of mine called REINS and I loved it. I loved the flow with which it was written. The connection, the beauty. Now when I sit to write, it’s all confusion and haphazard and not pleasing. Recently I am listening to an old favorite song Bubblin by Blue.

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 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2016 in nutshell

2016 is long gone,10 days into 2017, and this year has already started leaving its footprints in all our lives. Be sure that I ain’t gonna bore you with the highlights of 2016.

But I would just show you what all good things happened with me(read Smiles here and Smiles there 😛 )

I started making Vlogs and I think that was the best decision ever because it widens my thoughts and helps me help others in whatever way possible. Presently I have 65 subscribers on YouTube. My aim is to reach 1000 by the end of next year(I think I am being far fetched but I want to achieve the figure).

I also started meeting blogger friends in real life and it couldn’t be any better.

In 2016, I have met —

In 2017, I am going to meet whom all —

  • Bhavya
  • Rupali (you had to be in 2016 list :P)
  • KP
  • Upen
  • Enigma
  • Karthik
  • Jackie
  • NJ
  • Sri Di

Reading books was slow this year but I am happy with the number of books I have been gifted and I have gifted, so 2017, BEWARE, I am going to read much more 😉

So, let’s see what happens this year but be sure there will be more meetings and more videos for sure 😉

P.S.: I also wish to write more blogs this year as compared to last year 😉 Stay tuned because I will be sharing many more videos very soon in my YouTube Channel Darshith Badiyani.
