“If you go off into a far, far forest and, get very quiet, you’ll understand that you’re connected with everything”
They say,” in nature nothing is perfect and everything is perfect” and so true. There’s something about the surroundings when you are in the forest that just makes you smile and forget everything.
Most of us live in busy cities where nature cannot be easily connected to our daily lives… but for someone like me who lives in the country side can tell you how beautiful and peaceful it becomes if you just take a few minutes walk in the forest. Trust me, you’ll forget all your problems and worries as soon as you’ll connect with nature!
I love connecting with nature. it’s just so quite and peaceful. You feel alive! If you look deep into the nature, you will understand everything.
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks”
When you walk in the nature, you tend to forget everything. You see, we don’t ask anything from nature, yet nature gives us silence, peace, harmony and beauty.
“In nature,nothing is perfect and everything perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they are still beautiful”
And that’s exactly how our life is: it’s not perfect but it is perfect. It’s just the way we look at it. You see, everything is just a reflection of our mind…and everything can be changed by our mind. We just need to change our mindset!
“Slow down and enjoy the simple pleasure of life”
Nature has it’s own beauty and soul and by discovering nature, you discover yourself🙏
” even when humans fail to understand my words, Dog understands my silence”.
Ok so I was not okay today! I had bad day, not feeling well and decided to come home early from work. And guess who came to greet me at the door?
Yes my darling cute little Mayuri!
Awww one look and I was already feeling better! No matter how tired or sad you are, if you have a four legged friend, you know you don’t need any other medicine aye?
That’s why I just love my babies. Yes both my ginger cats can be lazy and need attention from you but my dog is something else. Not only she loves listening to my non-stop talking (I’d like to believe that) but whenever I am feeling down, she will give me the best cuddle and kisses that makes all my pain go away.
” My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies….
It comes from the love that’s in my dogs eyes”
No wonder they say, ‘dogs are the only thing in the world that loves you more than he loves himself’. And yes, they really are humans best buddies!
Whoever said diamonds are girls best friend are absolutely wrong! I think they must never had a dog. I am a big animal lover and my happiest moments are when I am with my fur babies: Marsh, Mellow and Mayuri!
“They don’t care what car you drive
They don’t care who you know
They don’t care what you wear
They don’t care where you live
They only care that you are there”
So like me you too, if you feel sad or lonely, go and cuddle your pets and trust me, you won’t need any other cure or medicine ever!
“Red 4 prosperity, Green 4 happiness, Blue 4 longitivity, Orange 4 progress, Pink 4 friendship.. Colors in our lives makes the life more colourful and beautiful”
Holi is the festival of colours. Holi is a popular ancient Hindu festival, also known as the “festival of love”, the festival of colours”. The festival celebrates the eternal and devine love of Radha and Krishna. It also signifies the triumph of good over evil.
Blessed to be celebrating it with our small community here in New Zealand. This festival always reminds me of my home country Fiji where festival like holi and diwali is celebrated in a big way.
Holi is always and will always be special for all Hindus. It’s a special time of year to remember those who are close to our hearts with splashing colours.
“Holi is the day to express love with colors. It is a time to show affection”
Wishing you all a very happy holi. Colours of happiness and joy are the most beautiful colours of life. Wishing and hoping they stay forever in our lives.
“In a rapidly changing environment, it is no longer about survival of the fittest or the fastest, but rather survival of the most flexible”
“And those who flow as life flows know they need no other force”
They say you never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone. And isn’t it so true? When you start trying different things, when you start looking at life in a new light, you actually start living your life!
I have and I will continue doing this for life. Lot has changed since 2017, as I have mentioned before 2017 is the year I start believing in myself and loving the way I see everything, and since than I never looked back.
This morning, I had a great time walking the coastal pathways, breathing the ocean air, absorbing the breath taking surroundings and of course enjoying the beautiful company of my two amazing friends.
You see anything is possible when you are surrounded by the right people in your life. I am a firm believer that you need to have the right people and a little flexibility in your life if you want to enjoy your life.
“with the right vibes and the right people, it’s easy to create something magical”
I know there are many challenges and fears we go through in life, but you need to be able to do things that you love. It’s very important that you look after yourself and be happy for who you are.
And the only way you can achieve this is by staying active and creating a more flexible mind. I personally believe in creating a positive mindset. Be flexible in your approach towards life and you will have a more peace in life.
“freedom and happiness are found in the flexibility and ease with which we move through change”
Just try and relax and live in the moment. Be grateful for what’s around you. And learn to be happy with whatever you have. You can either be your own best friend or your worst enemy. It’s you who needs to decide who you want to be.
I know it can be difficult but it’s not impossible. Just a little time for yourself is all you need to think and reflect about you. Even if you don’t have any friends, you can still enjoy your own company. All you need to do is FIND YOUR OWN WAY TO FLOW!
We all love drinking water but have you ever thought that you can actually learn a great lesson from water itself? Yes the biggest lesson it teaches us is how to adjust in life!
Just like water can adjust itself in every pot or change its flow, we can also make adjustments in life!
“Lovely things to learn from water: Adjust yourself in every situation and in every shape.
Time is anything which tells you who you are, where you are, and where you want to go. If you think it’s too late to start something…YOU ARE WRONG!
There’s no age limit to start again or learn again. I’m still learning and so are YOU
I have noticed many of us feel that it’s already too late to start something and achieve. But there’s no end to knowledge. Life is a lifelong learning process and we are it’s student.
We are constantly learning something new everyday as we grow in life. They say,” anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning is young!” The choice is ours – if we want to stay YOUNG or grow OLD!
” The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know”
Let’s think about it, many times we have said to know everything. But do we?
“A fool thinks he knows everything. But a wise person understands there’s something to learn from everyone”
I’d like to become that wise person and learn something new everyday. What about you?
No matter how knowledgeable you are, life will always teach you something new everyday. Always remember, the more we learn, the more self-confidence we will have. And one day we will thank ourselves that we did it.
Your growth is in your own hand. Unless you try to challenge yourself beyond what you already know, You will never Grow.
” Challenge yourself everyday if you wish to sustain the spirit of life…
Challenge yourself everyday if you wish to change the worldwide…
Challenge yourself everyday if success is all you seek…
Challenge yourself everyday if you wish to challenge what others feel you can’t meet!!!”
“You may not know this yet, but you have the ability to reinvest yourself endlessly. That’s your beauty”
Weight loss – when we think of losing weight, we get nervous and frustrated. I had the same situation some years back. You see, for some reason that voice in our head that says, “give up” is often louder than that says ” keep going” But if you listen to that small voice that says keep going, there will be a day, you will thank yourself!
For me, weight is just a number. My main goal in life is to stay fit and healthy. I have stopped weighing myself ages ago. There’s no point weighing and getting frustrating. And anyways, they say weight doesn’t always being in the gym with dumbbell; it starts in your head with a decision.
“Decision is the hardest thing to make, especially when it is a choice between where you should be and where you want to be“
Trust me, looking after yourself and staying healthy should be your number one priority. If you are healthy, nothing else matters.
When You are healthy, YOU ARE HAPPY
And when You are Happy, YOU ARE HEALTHY!
Make time for yourself. Any obstacles should not let you stop it. Does not matter how slowly you go, as long as YOU SHOULDN’T STOP!
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”
” The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice”
There’s so much to learn, and there’s not enough time! Yes, this is what comes in our mind when we think of learning. Not enough time or where to start. Same happened to me, after completing my degree, I thought this is it…there’s no need to study any further.
But I was so wrong. You never stop learning. You will always be a student and learning throughout your life no matter how old you get. I guess, in this ever changing world, where technologies are the new norm, you are constantly learning.
“Be a student daily, never a master. You must keep moving forward, and never stop learning”
There are and will always be challenges in our path, whether it’s building our career, happy homes or a better you. And the day you stop learning, you stop living. The good thing is, every experience: the good;the bad, ends up teaching you something you can move forward with.
“Never Stop Learning because Life Never Stops Teaching”
I think the beauty of life is that it gives you the opportunity to learn whenever you need them. Just like it has given me the opportunity to complete my studies towards becoming a CA- that’s something I dream of becoming back home in Fiji. But due to change in circumstance, I was not able to. Now I have the opportunity to continue my studies and hopefully achieve my goals and be what I really want to be!
“Goals:There’s no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in them. And there’s no telling what will happen when you act upon them”
If you have a dream or goal, you should go for it. And if you make it a goal to never stop learning, you will remember that the journey is a series of new starts that make you wiser and stronger each time. And it will only take you closer to your dreams and goals.
I guess, in life no matter what stage we are in, we are always learning. Some of us are learning to build a stronger career and some of us learning to overcome the challenges that comes in our way. Whatever the reason, the truth is WE ARE ALWAYS LEARNING because it is a continues process in life!
“Life is a continues learning process, some learn and some don’t, some learn more from rejection and disappointment than from achievement and acceptance”
They say,” Never stop learning because every morning of life starts with the hope and every night ends with experience and Knowledge! I haven’t and you shouldn’t either. So, if you do have a dream that you want to achieve, go for it.
Life is too short to short and the more we think about it, the more time we loose. Be brave enough to chase your dream, you never know one day you might actually catch it!
“You will surprise yourself one day by having the strength to do something you never thought”
“I don’t know what it’s like to not have deep emotions / feelings, even when I feel nothing, I feel it completely”
Don’t we all get that feeling where we don’t actually know what it is but still can feel it? I’ve been lately drained in the last few weeks with everything happening around me all at once. I’ve been angry most of the time and having mixed emotions that cannot be described…but hey I am only human and I am allowed to experience all these emotions / feelings from time to time
Happiness, fear, sadness, anger…yes we all felt it and still feel it. It’s only human nature, so it’s obvious, we feel different emotions from time to time. And most of the time, these emotions are directed at someone or something
“Feel the feeling but don’t become the emotion. Witness it. Allow it. Release it”
Yes, that’s what I exactly did yesterday, I listened to my feelings and tried to deal with it, I expressed it and tried to let it go. And this morning, I am feeling much better by letting it go, whatever I had bottled up inside is now outside…and the feelings quite amazing to be honest .
Something I did learn that in life, we will always come across many different kind of relationships…from coming into this world as a tiny little thing to experiencing friendships, to becoming life partners, to creating families.
Each of these relationships will teach you something new everyday…and it’s natural to get connected to these relationships. When you have a strong relationship, you will have a strong emotions attached to it. And this is where, it becomes hard when suddenly, one of these relationship becomes affected.
I guess being an adult is not that easy as what we use to think when we were little. It does have it’s own emotions and feelings attached to it.
“when you are happy, you enjoy the music but when you are sad, you understand the lyrics…same happens with our emotions and feelings that are attached to our relationships. We get a deeper meaning to it only when it gets affected.
“To be human and to be adult means constantly to be in the grip of opposing emotions, to have daily to reconcile apparently conflicting tensions. I want this, but need that. I cherish this, but I adore it’s opposite too”
Feelings and emotions will always be part of every relationship, and it is the only thing that could either make it or break it. It is really important to share your feelings and let it out before it becomes a problem for you and your loved ones. I have seen and experienced many times, when you try to bottle up everything inside, you not only end up hurting yourself but others also
IT’S OKAY TO FEEL, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHEN YOU FEEL IT, LET IT GO!
“It’s okay to have bad day…It’s ok to feel sad
It’s okay to angry…It’s ok to be upset
It’s okay to feel confused…It’s ok to feel lonely
It’s okay to feel hurt…It’s okay to cry
It’s ok to not be Okay…
There are always going to be moments where you don’t feel okay. And these moments are important. They help you grow into the person you always meant to become”
If it’s natural to feel happy, then it’s natural to feel unhappy…We are allowed to really feel our feelings!
“I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence…but it comes from within. It is there all the time…”
Have you ever seen gaint sunflowers? We have some planted in our garden. Big, Bright and Yellow flowers that actually brings a smile on your face.
“I want to be like a sunflower; even on the darkest days, I will stand tall & find sunlight”
Looking at these sunflowers, I always wonder, why can’t we be like sunflowers- no matter how the situation is, we stand tall and face it?
I guess this is where most of us lack confidence…
Yes! One little word CONFIDENCE! Easily defines as the feelings or belief that one can rely on someone or something; a firm trust”
Confidence plays a big part in our lives- just like when we feel confident in someone, we trust them to do what they promised…
And if someone lets you down, you start doubting yourself and this is when your self confidence level goes down…
While some people are naturally confident, there are others who dream of becoming confident one day. Sadly, that “one day” never comes…
I think our biggest fear is “what if we fail” This thought itself can make you doubt everything before even you started. And when we have self-doubt, we start comparing with others…
But why even compare when you are enough the way you are?
“Confidence is the ability to feel beautiful without needing someone to tell you”
We all have our own journey and we have to walk with integrity and confidence no matter what someone do or say…
What works for you may not work for someone else…so why compare?
There shouldn’t be any room for jealousy or comparison when you have the courage and ability to keep going
If you ever get a chance, watch the sunflowers grow…
The biggest lesson you’ll learn from sunflowers…even during the darkest hours, they stand tall and smile
And not only that…they live to the fullest knowing they are not there for long…
Have confidence that you can do it and YOU will do it!
“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement”
Fear is nothing but only our imagination and the day we face our fear is the day we gain our confidence!
Oh Yes, there will always be those people who will have issues with you. There’s someone out there ready to put you down no matter what you do…
And the reality is You just cannot please everyone. You just cannot make everyone happy all the time! So stop trying because if you try to please others, you will never be confident enough to live your life in your own terms…
“Confidence is not ‘they will like me’…Confidence is ‘ I’ll be fine if they don’t”
The door to your success is YOU! You are the only one who has the key to open that door and let the success come to you.
Always remember, there’s no magic out there, when you make mistakes…You learn from it. Just be grateful for your journey, even if it is hard because your own experience is giving You the confidence to grow!
Think before doubting yourself because You do have something that others don’t. And if you are in doubt, listen to your heart…It’s always right!
“Be Bright, Sunny and Positive. spread seeds of happiness. Rise, Shine and Hold your Head High with Confidence”
