~ Live Your Own Life

~ Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. – Steve Jobs

Live your own life, go for your dreams and remember that life is too short so please yourself first before other people. They don’t matter unless they are the ones who truly know and love you for who you are. πŸ™‚

A Snippet About Life

Life is like a camera. Focus on what’s important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don’t work out, take another shot. – Unknown

If that is the case, I have run out of batteries/films. πŸ˜€

Cross and Burn

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered. – Tom Stoppard

There is always something to look forward to. Move on. πŸ™‚

Take Time

Sometimes we’re all too quick to count the days that we forget to make the days count. – Unknown

Take time to smell the roses no matter how busy life can get. πŸ™‚

~ School is not…

~ School is not real life. Real life is learning more about life when you are outside the school. – Bliss Steps, on comparing her life in school and in other places where people are required to have skills, esp. in the workplace

When the Dog Blinks

~ Just like a dog, I obey my master. But I have to bark or bite if my master asks me to do shit. – Bliss Steps

I Wish to Change

~ I wish to change the world but then I remember that I have to change myself first. Change the bad in me — the unstable mindset and attitude and other unlikely things that have a bad effect. Change is crucial if we want to expect a different outcome. Only then we could say that we somehow left our ‘comfort zones’ if we give in to change. – Bliss Steps

Some Thoughts About Life

I came across a beautiful quote by one of the world’s greatest philantropists, Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Just in time though, for my nonchalant attitude about the state I am in, is it a coincidence that I was able to read her aphorism? I like the last two lines – the lines my mum would always tell me.

 

β€œLife is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is beauty, admire it.

Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is luck, make it.

Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

Life is life, fight for it.”

― Mother Teresa

From Anais Nin

I agree with her. I may not be an authority in writing but I noticed that most of my posts revolve on how I live life and how other people live their lives. At times, I get ideas by seeing things through their own perspective. What I see is entirely different from what the other person sees. So, it is good that we also see through their eyes and feel through their hearts while we write.

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. – Anais NinΒ
