Respect others skills and their virtues. Their flaws too. Respect their thoughts. Let them finish what they are saying, don’t interrupt, don’t be dismissive. Try to understand what they’re getting at. Let them be who they are. I am convinced that people are exactly as judgmental about themselves as they are about others. Find the value in others, or you will never see it in yourself. Forget the ways in which you would like other people to be different. Forgive them, and forgive yourself. Forgive yourself every time you wake up, and every time you go to bed. Forgive yourself every time you screw up.
Respect the world around you. The spectacles, the scenes, the details. Respect buildings and the people who built them. Respect businesses and the people who run them. Respect the trees. Respect the tiny, yellow-flowered weed that vehemently persists in thrusting itself up through the cracks in the sidewalk. It invests all its energy in growing, and it absolutely insists on being itself.
Love is picking up the dumbells the moment you start making excuses. Love is doing your scariest task first thing in the morning.
It’s not quitting early and treating yourself to a beer. It’s not telling yourself it’s okay for your apartment to be a pigsty.
There is a choice in every moment, between acting out of love, or out of fear. At any instant, you can stop and look at the moment, and it is clear which action is which. You will make a habit out of choosing one or the other.
You won’t be able to have respect if you do not make a habit of recognizing value. There is value in every person, object, place and moment, but you may miss it if you hold faults to be more important.
Find the endless value in the world around you, and it will be easy to find the endless value in yourself. Eventually you will no longer see a difference between the two.
Just a different aspect to life.
Until next time….
let me know how many of you got it right (or left).
Until next time…..

People often believe that the feelings and emotions they experience are determined by external factors or events. We come to these conclusions automatically, however if we stop and think its actually our thoughts that influence our feelings. Its never the situation or the words or actions of the other person, but how we perceive that situation or the person’s action.
Emotions are like powerful program that define our abilities: How we “Think”,”Act and “Feel”. Our emotions control the way we operate and experience the world. Basic emotions that we experience are
Apathy ,Greed, Fear, Lust, Anger, Pride, Courageousness, Acceptance etc.
Take a little time to consider your current state and you will find yourself in one of these emotions. In different areas of our lives we operate in different emotions, but there is typically one dominant emotion in which we reside most of the time.
What is your current state of emotion…..

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting weak?
Why do banks charge a few on “insufficent funds” when they know we dont have enough?
Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?
Why doesn’t glue stick to the bottle?
Why people constantly return to the refrigerator with with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?
Why does round pizza comes in a square box?
Why are you IN a movie when you are ON TV?
Why is it that people say “slept like a baby” when babies wake up every two hours?
How come we never hear Father -in-law jokes?
Why is that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?
If people evolved from apes, why are they still apes?
Do Alphabet song and Twinkle Twinkle little star have the same tune?
Why did you just try singing the two songs above?
Ha Ha Ha Ha

Can time actually heal break ups and lessen the mourning over the love which is lost and eventually , you meet someone else.
But some break ups are different. no matter what you do, you cannot get over. Not a single day goes by that this person cross your mind. One way or the other this person’s thoughts will haunt you making your heart feel heavy.
Its usually because the relationship is unfinished, but you can’t tell yourself that and you certainly can’t believe it. Instead you will try to assure yourself that you are fine until you hear that Song, see photo, yearn to share something or wake up thinking about him or her (back to square one). Even though currently you are not together you know that he/she is the love of your life. The connection with that person is so real, strong and magnetic that you are constantly pulled back.
The relationship hasn’t reached its potential yet, so it can’t be over. Who knows this might be the person you end up with. Your friends think you are crazy and you also feel the same about yourself.
People are complicated and love can be messy sometimes but that doesn’t mean it’s not love. Life is unpredictable, so for all those who are in this type of situation, maybe ONE day you will be with that person.
Do let me know what do you feel, have you ever been in this type of situation. Well i have been before getting married i broke up with my husband ( who was not my husband that time) so many times but see today i am with him happily married.
Until next time……
