“Just be like me and you will have your life filled with glee. Always keep moving towards your destination. Don’t look back when life turns a sharp corner. Just like blossoms and fish sail along with me, there would be people who will always be at your side, whatever the circumstances might be. Don’t loose hope when you come across an obstacle, embrace it, make your way and keep flowing.”

Self respect: a jewel💎

“Self respect starts with you”

I came across a limping old lady on the other side of a busy path yesterday. She wanted to cross this path where a lot of people were busy cycling, walking and jogging and there was a lot of moving rush. I thought that she wouldn’t be able to cross this path without guidance. She might get knocked out by someone with earphones, fall and hurt herself. I approached her and politely asked if I could be of any help to her. She got quite agitated and replied to me in a painful yet bold tone that she could handle herself better. We had a substantially long conversation. She expressed herself beautifully.

She had grown strong over years and did not want anyone to take advantage of her disabilities or yet even have pity on her. She did not wanted any help from any person unless it becomes absolutely necessary , as it hurts her  SELF RESPECT. She gave a wide message to all the disabled people who have already fallen down from deep within. And introduced an effort to delete those three numbing letters from ‘dis’abled. A struggle to live a normal, special and happy life.

I realised that everybody use ‘self respect’ in their own way but all mean the same- to respect oneself and to rise in one’s own eyes before admiring or respecting some other person.

Do not expect people to respect you if you let you disrespect yourself. It’s not ego. EGO is negative. Self respect is positive and as precious as a jewel.

If you are a bit dark complexioned and sometimes you do feel a bit low amongst fair people (I am not a racist okay!) . If you think that you are being discriminated against. Of course you have to raise a voice but for a moment just think and laugh about the time when you felt happy wiping your black butt with white toilet paper. It might change the way you look at yourself and consider yourself no less than others. SO RECONSIDER !

Self respect can also be associated with one’s love and respect for one’s own country. Respect the place where you live in and connected with, and only then can you expect people to respect your place.

Respect yourself. Don’t let anybody hurt your dignity. There was a real incident which happened few days ago wherein a street cobbler refused to accept the coin which was thrown at him disrespectfully in return of his service. He told the customer that he need to be respected for his effort and that he couldn’t lose his self respect and dignity at any cost.

“If nobody holds your hand, put your hands in the pocket and move on”.

Don’t let yourself down to make other people happy. If they are true friends then they will accept and respect you the way you are. They will be happy to see your success. There are some people who always want to let you down. They often break your heart and you still expect them to get better the next moment. Turn a deaf ear towards them. They are not to be taken along ,in the journey of life.

Living individually with respect is better than being in company which discourages and does not value you. Respect and identity are the first things you own/possess. They are the priorities. They should be given love before anything or anyone else. One can loose parents, friends and relatives but respect for oneself (and from others) when once lost can be very difficult to gain back.

You may survive without respect, dignity or honor from the outside but your soul might harden or injure.

Smile 😁

It’s very infectious! You catch it more easily than common cold…It’s a simple smile 🙂

Often in in our daily routine we get impressed by various things. A smile will not only make you happy but also make the other person encouraged.

The benefit….It’s priceless !!                            A smile is the best accessory that both men and women can wear at any time.

You can smile and make others smile too, effortlessly. It’s a way of showing affection. There’s no reason for being happy or passing a token of love.

You get lightened when your wife recieves you at the door with a beautiful smile after you come home from a difficult day in office. She smiles at you without any reason for a reason…To make you feel that you are important.

Isn’t it amazing that a simple curve on the face is full of emotions and can convey a beautiful message !

I am sure that a like or follow on your post or when you like somebody else’s post makes you smile. That smile= an expression of contentment and appreciation. 😃

(And I know you are smiling right now!)

Wear your smile everyday !!  It makes you look more beautiful than all the make-up and dressing.

Go ahead, a smile can melt even the hardest of the hearts 💞

Thanks ☺

It’s Orange…

One day ‘Mr Sun’ got a flying kiss from a lady. He blushed so much that he turned ‘Orange’.   🙂

Ever saw the hues of a setting sun or a sun just sliding from the blanket in early morning ?!

The beautiful orange circle in the sky with its tinted cheeks hides behind a curtain ,just like a popstar waiting for his entry. The curtains slide and he unleashes his beauty and might.

“The sun even shines on those who are ungrateful to him”. The sun, the wind, water and sky the elixirs of life are the only things which today’s greedy human can’t own and can’t classify into relegion, caste or political party. They are common for everybody irrespective of the diversity in this world.

THE SUN…It’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. The color combinations set by HIM are prettier than the prettiest dress of a woman. The sun is so bright and lovely but he won’t let you see him for long { I think it’s shy 😉  }

You can’t live without its warmth in chilly winters  but you still like him when he gets really hot 😎 in summers !!  If it wasn’t there ,you would not have had the chance to eat your favorite ice cream.

And sometimes when the blustering winds of autumn hurt, you would like him to come out of those clouds and save you like a hero !!

Thanks
