“Even on the days you don’t feel like it, showing up can make all the difference. If you show up and start the work-even though it feels so heavy to do so. What you end up making could be all you need to keep moving, to keep creating”
Be like these flowers, when their time comes, they just SHOW UP and make their surrounding more beautiful. They don’t care where they are. Or what the situation is, they just SHOW UP and DO their PART!
I think we all have experienced once in our lifetime, where we don’t feel like showing up…be it at any functions or at work. And sometimes, it’s because of the fear of criticism, or not being appreciated, we don’t show up.
It happens sometimes, we felt let down, or are not being appreciated of our hard work, and we get affected by all these BUT no matter what anyone says just SHOW UP AND DO YOUR PART!
Because the truth is showing up every single day of your life is critical to your own success in almost every field of endeavor be it in your professional or personal life.
Another thing is very common these days, family time is something we have taken granted for’ but in truth a family is what you make it. If there’s any big or small function, your presence does matter! Just show up and do your part and you’ll see the difference you make in others lives.
The rituals you help family members create, by the memories you share, the commitment of your time, your caring towards each other, and the love you show to one another does matters.
You see, Greatness isn’t handed to anyone; it requires a lot of hard work. All you have to do is just SHOW UP and DO YOUR PART!
I’ve read one of Seth Godin’s blog where he beautifully explains, ” some people show up when they need something. Some people show up before they need something, knowing that it will pay off later, when they need something. And some people merely show up – not needing anything, not in anticipation of needing something, but merely because they can” Be that person who just shows up and do their part!
It’s easier to give up or believe that you can just get by, by doing the easiest thing possible. And sometimes in doing this, you forget that there’s always somebody behind you who really wants to do what you are doing. And if given chance, they will try harder than you to achieve what you have always wanted.
“No matter what anyone says, just show up and do your part. If they praise you, show up and do your part. If they criticize you, show up and do your part. If no one notice you, just show up and do your part. Just keep showing up, do your part and lead the way”

JUST SHOW UP, DO YOUR PART and you’ll be glad you did!
“You came here empty-handed, and you will leave empty-handed. What is yours today belonged to someone else yesterday, and will belong to someone else tomorrow” Bhagavad Gita
Somebody asked me yesterday, what’s your new year’s resolution? And I replied, “take one day at a time. I’m going to go with the flow”
I mean why should I have a resolution? And why should I worry about it not getting fulfilled? Does it matter?
The fact of life is that nothing matters only if you allow it to be! And the above quote by Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita explains it all.
Why worry about the future you haven’t seen it yet? Why run after things that will not be with you forever?
We came into this world with empty handed and we will leave empty handed when the time will come….and this is the only fact of life we need to accept it if we want to enjoy our today.
My darling Mellow is giving you a Hi5 and telling you that life is very simple, we can’t always catch everything even if we try hard, we will return back empty handed. The fact is, not everything belongs to you!
The problem in our lives are that we are running after something every day. We have become a human machine. There was a time when everything was done without thinking about the outcome…but today, for every action, we are waiting for a reaction!
Anything we do, there’s something we want in return!
“We have the power to be our own friend or the folly to become our own enemy”
Why do we have to expect in return? Can’t we just do our part and move on?
When we start expecting, we become restless and unhappy. We start worrying about little things and that’s when everything falls apart…
But only if we start taking one day at a time and live with the flow…everything will start making sense
There is a reason for everything happening around you…
” Do your part with good intention and never expect, because if expectations are not met, pain is inevitable”
There is a reason you’re going through a bad phase in your life…
But remember, even if today’s not your day, doesn’t mean tomorrow will not be. There’s always a tomorrow for everyone of us. Everything will make sense to you if you just have a little patience, courage & calmness towards life!
“ You need not worry about the future, nor should you pay attention to the past”
The only thing you need in life is the control over the present, rest will follow!
I understand and totally agree that our mind is restless and it’s difficult to control…BUT it’s not hard and definitely not impossible!!! If your intention behind your action is good, nothing matters!
What you think, and how your thoughts becomes your action is very important. If you could control your negative thoughts and turn it into a more positive outcome, you have won half the battle.
Nothing is permanent in our lives! Everything is contemporary therefore, live with the flow and accept the only truth of life to enjoy your present and leave behind your past.
Learn to be happy with whatever you have…some even have nothing that you already have!
“Do everything you have to do, But not with Greed, Not with Ego, Not with Lust, Not with Envy BUT with Love, Compassion, Humanity and Devotion”
“Train your mind to see good in everything. Positivity is a choice. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts…”
Power of Positivity: A great way to start 2021 if you just believe that the power of positivity can change your life!
If your mindset is positive, you will have a more hopeful outlook, and you will start to see the world differently. Everything will make sense to you. And once you believe in yourself that you can do something great means you will do something great. It’s all about believing in yourself and having faith in your abilities.
“Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact”
When we become positive, our focus will be on good things but if we allow ourselves to be contained by negative thoughts, we will never achieve our fullest potential. We shouldn’t get stuck in our past, “where you are now, is not where you will always be”
“Optimism is a happiness magnet. If you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you”
It’s very simple, we can always choose to perceive things differently. Either you focus on what’s wrong in your life, or you can focus on what’s right…The Choice is YOURS!
According to Buddha, if we train our mind properly, happiness will be the result…but I know it’s difficult to stop negative thoughts from popping into our head. And there’s nothing wrong in getting these thoughts from time to time….as long as we can stop them from making a nest in our mind.
2020 is gone and you can’t re-write the past but you can start fresh and write a new chapter full of determination and positivness.
Think that 2021 will bring lots of happiness and success in your life…
Look for something positive in each day…
Keep your mind off things that don’t help you…
Stop wishing…Start doing…
Live in the moment!
“Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier, Love everything, you will happiest”
I am not saying that being positive means that everything is fine when they are not but the power of positivity will help you staying calm and patient in difficult times. Positive Attitude makes the big difference!
” The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry.
Love simply, expect little, give much…Scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others“
“The Power of Positivity makes You that Incredible Person you always wanted to be.
It just takes the change of Perception.
Start feeling optimistic about Everything and Feel Alive Again.
Because It is You who can change Your world and nobody else”
New is the year, New are the hopes, new is the resolutions & new are the Sprits… I wish this year provides you to be happy!
2020 was an educating year with so many life lessons and challenges. Some of us have lost our loved ones, while some lost jobs, prospects and opportunities due to COVID-19.
This virus created a world of caous, emotional imbalance, worry and suffering but we managed to survive.
Yes, 2020 was not a great year to start off with but it has taught us many life lessons… And the biggest life lesson we’ve all learnt is how to survive!
I guess we should say “thank you” to 2020 for the survival skills , personal growth, healing, the love, the experiences, the laughter and the tears, the fun and the sad, the ugly and the beautiful lessons it has taught us.
It’s all part of the journey and has made us who we are today!
Although no one can go back and make a brand new start but we can definitely start from now and make a brand new ending…
Let’s start 2021 with lots of positivity!
” The new year is a blank book. The pen is in your hands, it is your chance to write a beautiful story for yourself”
” Your Emotions can either break you Or make you!”
“Until you’re broken, you don’t know what you’re made of…It gives you the ability to build yourself all over again, But Stronger than ever”
Yes, it’s one of those mornings where I am having a mixed emotions from inside. I guess it’s been a long journey towards the end of the year and lots had happened, changed in terms of personal / professional life and while reflecting everything, you do get a little bit emotional
“Pretend to feel …Pretend to have fun…Pretend to forget…”
I guess it’s completely normal to feel sad or hopeless from time to time. After all, we are all humans and it is normal to feel different emotions right? And I’ve heard, your emotions never lie to you right?
“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us”
I use to give too much importance to reasons but I guess I have grown to accept reasons doesn’t matter. When you start giving reasons, your emotions start playing and it does affects your ability to think clearly.
“One who have control over their emotion has great power over those who don’t!”
Do not let emotions take over you. And this is exactly what I am doing this morning, I had mixed feelings and I was feeling emotional, so I decided to write about it. I think that’s the best part of writing a blog, you can write your heart out and someone out there will understand you.
And yes, I am already feeling great about it. I know it’s going to be a fabulous start of my day and I hope you all have an awesome day /night.
“Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event control your emotions”
Ignore the haters, doubters & unhealthy examples that were once feeding YOU
YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN YOU REALISE!!!
Its been a while since I wrote anything about fitness and health. So why not discuss the most important aspect of life: maintaining a healthy lifestyle!
When it comes to staying fit and healthy, most of us think we don’t have enough time to exercise? But hey, always remember one thing: The choice is always YOURS! Your mindset is your choice whether you think negative OR positive is entirely upon YOU
For me personally, 2018 was the year where I was feeling very low, lack energy and lost motivation. Maybe because this was the year where lot has happened…from moving regions because my husband found a new job to trying to sort out my son’s school, building our home, and trying to battle my own health issues due to endometriosis has been few of my challenges
During this period, I had gained weight, was feeling sick and feeling tired all the time and had lots going on my mind so basically was not really happy about anything..
July 2018 was where I became really sick, I was bloated all the time and was unhappy. That’s when I decided enough is enough, I need to look after myself first. That’s when I started thinking positive about myself. My mindset has been my biggest change within 2 years, I have to work on it daily to make sure I believe in myself and discipline my thoughts and my choices.
That doesn’t mean I don’t have my moments where I still feel like not doing anything on somedays BUT I do recharge myself back the next day. If you look closely at the above photos of mine, you’ll notice the difference. I admit, I was not huge but for me it was never about losing weight. It was more about feeling good and healthy. And trust me, I do feel happy all the time. I am not bloated or sick all the time and I can spend more time with my son doing outdoor activities.
“Switch your mentality from ‘I’m broken and helpless’ to ‘I’m growing and healing’ and watch how your life changes, for the better”
Yes, I am still on a waiting list for my hysterectomy surgery (and it’s going to be a long wait) but I know in the meantime, I am feeling great about myself. I am happy with where I am and the choices I’ve made towards leading a healthy lifestyle!
” Our mindset can either propel us forward into our dream life + keep us in a state of Happiness + Gratitude or it can keep us in Negativity + A Paralyzed state of spinning our wheels”
THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
It’s all about making a good choice that makes you Happy. And it’s never too late to start again. I personally believe it’s very important to look after yourself especially during this time where anything can happen.
I strongly believe in feeling good about yourself and taking care of yourself are very IMPORTANT for your self-esteem and self-image. And feeling good doesn’t mean doing workouts at the gym 24/7. It simply means choosing a healthy lifestyle!
“Health is not about the weight you lose BUT about the life you GAIN”
Yes, Life is meant to be enjoyed BUT only if you choose to enjoy a healthy lifestyle! What I’ve learnt from my personal experience, You can give up pretty much anything and still enjoy life as long as You believe in what YOU do. All you need is the right attitude in order to enjoy life!
The 3 C’s of Life: Choices, Chances, Changes are really important if you want to lead a better life. YOU must make a choice to take a chance or YOUR life will never change!”
