Why you shouldn’t take life seriously

A constant struggle many of us go through is carrying unnecessary burdens. The tendency to take life too serious makes us fall into emotional ruins. And it is well known that emotional imbalance comes with mental, spiritual and physical imbalance. Life is a blank artist’s canvas, whatever you draw is what you get. Of course there are the occasional surprises of destiny we can’t control. 
For such situations we can’t control , it’s pretty self explanatory – You can’t control, so don’t even try! Trying to live your life fighting will only result to you being drained. The school of thought that suggests that things are not meant to be taken so seriously is where you should belong. This ideology brings much needed contentment and peace that is needed. So why don’t you give your mind a break and let go of that burden?

Understanding the meaning of Gratitude 

Much like consciousness, gratitude has many unique levels. Essentially, gratitude is the best gift to give in addition to receive. Gratitude has to be heart-felt and sincere.  Show gratitude all the time and your focus is going to be on the beneficial and your attention is going to be placed on what you would like. There are an assortment of approaches to practice gratitude. 

Through keeping a gratitude journal, you’re probably going to grow your gratitude and through this, you will likely grow a number of other Christian qualities too. Then create a daily custom of gratitude, morning or night, run through the particular things you’ve got gratitude for. Expressing gratitude is proven to give people a large emotional liftGratitude is a great medicine. Although it is something which everyone can experience, some men and women appear to truly feel grateful more often than others. Expressing gratitude is an essential aspect that could reshape and transform any negative life situation into the success that you want.

At best, you will experience gratitude via the little number of methods by which you can delight in spending your free time when not on somebody else’s watch. Loosely defined, gratitude is the sensation of appreciation and thankfulness for all of the blessings and acts of kindness that you have gotten in your life. Gratitude gets us through the difficult stuff. It is among the simplest and most powerful strategies to transform your life. Gratitude and resentment or anger can’t reside in the same region at the very same moment.

Eat in Gratitude,  as the direction through which  you eat your food could be equally as vital as the sort of food which you eat. Gratitude is the ideal attitude. Employing gratitude to modify your attitude is such a very simple and rather effective jewel for self discovery.Seems somewhat trivial, but gratitude may change your life. Gratitude is an excellent motivator when you will need cooperation. Gratitude is actually a grace when you think about how it is able to make you feel. Gratitude is also an answer to the present. Gratitude isn’t a one-time event but instead a mindset which requires cultivation. Gratitude is a timeless instance of the concept that what you concentrate on, expands. Gratitude isn’t just the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all of the others.

When you’re in a state of gratitude,  you’re engaging in among the greatest vibrations one can experience. The condition of gratitude is a great thing for your well-being. You enter a place of gratitude for what you currently have. Taking a while to sit quietly and think about something you’re grateful for will help lower the negative ideas and feelings and replace them with positive ones. It also  helps you recover from trauma.  Gratitude was proven to play a major part overcoming trauma.


Happiness is easy. If you are quite grateful, life will change a good deal. There are those people  in your life, and there’s beauty on the planet. Expressing Gratitude is the key to Success. If you need to be effective in life, begin being grateful and thankful for all of the things you have. Give thanks for the many blessings you presently have in your life, and they’re going to increase. If you’re able to truly have a look at your life and everything in it and be grateful, you’re a great deal more likely to be content, and to bring in more of the exact same to yourself later on.

Not only is it a gift from God, it’s a present from God that you don’t even deserve. Truly happy individuals recognize that everything they have is not just a gift they don’t deserve, but that it’s a present to be used for God’s glory. One of the best gifts of gratitude is it is not possible to feel both positive and negative emotions at the very same moment. A disposition of gratitude is important for all of us to develop too. An attitude of gratitude can be rather infectious! You may use the attitude of gratitude to obtain more of the excellent things in life. 


The fantastic spiritual traditions all teach the worth of gratitude. You can begin your gratitude meditation practice by first choosing the right place that does not have any distractions. Practicing gratitude meditation on a normal basis is the best method to move towards happiness. So, when you say your gratitude prayer, think what you can do in order to give back, today. You could decide to say a very long gratitude prayer daily, listing the things for which you’re grateful. If you concentrate on what you do have, you are going to be astonished at the blessings that enter your life. 

5 things to do before you die

Although death is a scary topic, we all know that it does come someday. And living brilliantly before our time runs out should be everyone’s goal. With that said, here are the 5 things you should do before you die.

  1. Travel: Don’t just live your life stuck in the same state, the same town, in the same country. Move (That’s why you have legs) and see the wonderful world! It’s one thing to travel and prefer the comfort of home and it’s another to never know anywhere but home. That’s why many of our ancestors were nomads. Human beings are naturally curious creatures, so do not go against your nature by staying put forever.
  2. Eat a lot of yummy food: Life is too short to forever count calories and stay on diets. Make sure you have fun eating yum foods. Also, food from diverse cultures is a plus. Do not restrict yourself if you are not allergic to it. Give me that damn gluten now!
  3. Be kind: Don’t spend life focused only on yourself. Be kind to others and make sure you do good deeds. Not only will you be happier, your existence will have more meaning. Our life is meant to help someone else out there. Let’s live with that consciousness to always do kind things.
  4. Play in nature: What’s more fun than having fun in nature? Enjoy the bare mud touching your feet. Eat fruits directly from the trees. Meditate in nature and feel like you’re some kind of guru. Yeah, just enjoy nature like people did in the past. Do not live your existence looked up in an office and wearing work shoes. Life is not about that.
  5. Do some art (or science): Where I am going with this is similar to discover your talent. It’s also closer to creating something with your own hands. It may be something practical like craft or fantastical like a poetry collection. Just do it, even if you don’t want to sell it to anyone. It can be your personal keep sake. Or it can become a family heirloom after you are gone. If you want to give it off as a gift, that’s good too. Why do this? Because it involves practically transforming your human talent into the physical. And what’s more humany than something created from an idea?

Can you do something about life’s unfairness?

Let me tell you a story. Imagine growing up in an impoverished home, always having difficulty possessing what many others seemed to have easily. To make things worse, being told consciously and subconsciously that you won’t amount to anything. Then imagine on the other side of the fence, there is a child who was born rich, was always taken to the best schools, given the ability to own a fashion line as a teenager. 

If you compare these stories, I’m sure you will say life is unfair. After all luck is what makes you be born into a certain family/ place and not another. But that is just the surface of things.

Digging deep, you will find that life is not that plain. I’m sure if you were omniscient, there will be a level of unfairness you will spot in each lives, just as levels of luck and fairness. The mental reasoning of painting life as fair or unfair is wrong. Life is a myriad of colours and cannot be simplified to just that.

Life can be unfair to some extent as life can be lucky. The girl born poor might be lucky to have good friends while the girl born rich could be the lonely and rich kind. The girl born poor due to social conditioning might not aspire to do more but she is free from the pressures of anticipation. The girl born rich might enjoy the virtually free luxuries of life but might be under more scrutiny by the public.
Even with all this, the concepts of fair and unfair varies in situations and persons. A 19 year old girl getting breast cancer can be seen universally as unfair. But an 80 year old man who dies with dementia might not be considered in the unfair spectrum by most. But who knows, the man might not had wanted to die yet, or have lived a wasted life with no meaning. 

The most important things about life is choice, faith, God , hope and joy. This is because these are the things we have control over. We can decide to choose to do better in our lives. We can decide to have faith and believe in God. Hope and joy can be ours for free. I will lay emphasis on choice for now. 

Imagine if that the girl born poor decides that she will achieve financial security in her life. So, she works smart, tries a lot of things, abandoning that which does not work and sticking to the things that brings results. Even if this poor girl has anxieties and inferiority complex, because she has made a choice to work on them- life becomes more fair. The girl born rich also has the ability to choice her destiny. She can remain shallow and rich or decide to change her world and develop deep relationships. The girl born rich might also become poor, depending on her choices.

So yes, life can be unfair due to the random occurrences before our birth. But after our birth what we choose to do with life is our choice

Today’s great quote: Unpleasant memories

Memories are thoughts that arise. They’re not realities. Only when you believe that they are real, then they have power over you. But when you realize it’s just another thought arising about the past, then you can have a spacious relationship with that thought. The thought no longer has its grip on you.

Eckhart Tolle

Delays are opportunities in disguise


I know that so many of us hate delays, I hated them too. But they always come and there is no way to escape from them. It might be a delayed flight, traffic jam, limiting illness, postponement, etc. If delays are properly handled they can become an advantage. I was taught this last week when my phone suddenly stopped charging and finally shutdown. If you understand how important my phone is in my daily life, you’ll scream. After taking the phone for a repair almost immediately and only to find it that it stopped working when I got home, taught me a lesson on patience. 

I had no free chance to go back to fix my phone (at a more competent source) for a week. Those seven days, I learnt how to manage and handle delays. Finding my days quite limited without my phone except for the work which I had, I began to read physical books. I should mention here that it had been a long while since I read books that were not ebooks. I read and finished about 5 books during the period of 5 days! 

This is something I would have never done if my phone were still on. The ebooks I read, it would take me days to finish just one. I gained a lot from my reading! And contrary to my expectation, that delay did not cause my week to be boring. I had a good time reading and I was relieved to be free from the stress of my phone addicted life (which many of us from the 21st century have). I was free from social media, the pressure to monitor my social media growth, apps, emails, useless messages, etc. My delay turned into an opportunity! I got the freedom from the anxiety that had engulfed me. 

Now that the delay is over and my phone is working fine, I will always be glad for that delay. Because I used it well. The problem is that most people do not use their delays. If patience is lacking, it will be impossible to decide to use your delay for your advantage. You would be too busy complaining about how unfair the situation is to see the advantage. There is an advantage in everything life brings to us. Allow for delays and you will use them creatively, if not it will bring about frustration and anger which are destructive in nature.

Mystic

She sits in the dark corners

At the late hours of the night

Uncovering the mysteries of her being

She dares to tread

What others fear and dread

Throwing all caution to the air

No one knows her trueness, her sincerity

An enigma to the world, she represents

Elusive, you have to search to find her current abode

Rare, a fine breed of human, she is

The mystic

She delves into the spiritual

Searches the supernatural for the natural

She knows all what’s physical,

Has a Spirit base

She knows the difference between good and bad

Practices the true, she throws away the wrong

Her soul is too mature for evil

Her mind is a philosophy

Nature’s working, a very own fascination

Governed by balance, she goes

Finding her own true way
