BE MY PERSON!

You hear the words Support System, and you think Family first and then maybe some friends, someone you look up to. Right?? Well… I’d like to suggest another option.

YOU

I used to think I had a great support system in my family and friends. And then life dealt me my hardest cards. So confused as to what I should do.. Should I fold or keep playing this twisted game?? I turned to my family. I figured my dad should be able to help me, after all I’m his little Princess. What do I see in his eyes?? DISAPPOINTMENT, CONFUSION, BETRAYAL, CONCERN. How could I be so stupid and irresponsible enough to get into this mess?? I searched for my mom. All I see in her eyes is CONCERN, CONFUSION, STRENGTH FOR ME. I was overjoyed. But she still couldn’t show me the way. Then came the extended cousins and family. Again CONFUSION, most thought I was destined to be a fuck up and then again some couldn’t care less about me.

By now I’m too worried to even tell my friends what is happening. But I muster up the courage to do so to a few select friends. Some are CONFUSED, FaceBook says you are fine? What happened? Some say what are you going to do now? You cannot take care of yourself. And then some say well you should’ve controlled that attitude of yours. And then there were the amazing few who asked me for the first time, If I was OK? If I was going to be OK??

Through all my ordeals in my past I’ve come to filter the ones who really care about me and the ones who like me for the few minutes of my company. And the one thing that got etched into my heart and soul is.. You will always have family, friends and well wishers. You will always have someone in your corner. But none of that matters if YOU are not in your corner. See I had been looking for someone else to help me through my problems so much so that I forgot I’ve me. That I went through all of that. How can anyone else understand me as much as I do myself? Who better to give me a pep talk than the person who knows me the most? Who better to lift me up than me? The day I realised this I became my number 1 support system. Even at the end of the world, I’ll still have me. So look within you for strength, look within you for the support you seek from others. Some days will be harder than others. Your negative voice might be louder than the positive one, but know that You were born positive. So you’ve been positive more than you’ve been negative and that voice will diminish. You are stronger than your demons. Its a long process and a hard one to trust in yourself but once you do,the world will be a brighter place.

BE YOUR OWN SUPPORT SYSTEM, BE YOUR OWN PERSON.

WORK BLUES !!!!

 

CMnOzIOWcAA3gdX

Monday Blues-  Every one has had it from time to time.For me: Its a constant. I’ve seen friends who love their job, have a great passion for what they do and yet seen them crumble under corporate pressures. I’ve seen entrepreneurs fail constantly because the need to make money and be successful, trumps the joy of creating and experimenting. Our journey from Kinder garden to College, seems to be a pathway to pay bills and not discover the world we came into.

Yes- Bills need to be paid, and so yes you need a job. But you are more than that. I know its easy to say these things. Anyone who knows me, knows that I come from Money. Not much, but enough to make me take risks and go jobless for months together trying to find the right work. I know I sound like a Brat. But my reasons for it are probably not what you expect. Its not because I’m worry free because I know my parents have money. No. It is solely because I never found any job interesting and wonderful enough to stick to it. I knew as much as the world wanted me to have a steady 9 – 5  job, that wasn’t me. Every job in which I got to create, be artistically free, inspired me. And in those jobs, I learnt everything I can from it and then move on. Even if i hadn’t had money, I probably would’ve done a number of odd end jobs to pay the bills, while constantly searching for what I want.

As in love, In work, there isn’t just that one job.You can have a pick of what you want if you’ve the guts for it. So I say quit that dead end job that pays the bill but doesn’t feed your soul, work in as many different sectors as you can to find out where you fit in, and when you do, learn and accumulate as much knowledge as you can and move on to a place were you can learn more. Because your knowledge will be your saving grace at all times. You will be respected for it.

Learning never stops, until you choose to stop. Take classes, Find your passion and Don’t let the pressures of making money kill your soul. Believe in what you want to do, because a Job is just that. A Job. So the questions you need to ask yourself is, Is your current job what you want to do for the rest of your life? In the process of making money, did I lose memories? Am I doing this because I love it or because, am responsible for others and would rather kill my dreams and needs than be a disappointment?

WHATEVER YOUR ANSWERS ARE TO THIS, KNOW THAT YOU’VE THE POWER TO CHANGE IT, FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE.  IT IS YOUR DECISION TO MAKE.

On a lighter note: Do try working in smaller sectors, when you travel. My dream travel job is to be a bartender 😛 Can you believe the kind of people I would get to meet ??  🙂

CHEERS TO A GOOD WEEK OF WORK

Making THE Change!!

Image

This year has been a turmoil. Ups and Downs and Hurdles and Smooth roads!! I guess that’s life. Without its twists and turns even the most beautiful stretch of road becomes boring to the Human Brain. But what this turmoil did to me, was it Put Me Down!! Rather I let the world around me crash and I burned with it!! At my lowest of lows I was introduced to The Secret.

Every book, from a comic to great writings, holds in it the truths of life and ways to better oneself. How and what you take from it becomes your journey.

The first lesson I learned from The Secret by Rhonda Byrne is this.

BAD THOUGHTS = BAD OUTCOME.

GOOD THOUGHTS = GOOD & GREAT OUTCOME.

And the Power to make a good outcome in your life starts and ends with you. No external entity can influence your outcome. BELIEVE with unwavering faith in your truth, in your passion and The Universe will make it happen for you. Don’t Delay and Don’t Second Guess. ACT now. For the Change begins with you and you have to make THE change.

Today with this post, I decide to take the first step towards being the best me and giving into the Universe my most positive good thoughts. I vow to Heal myself. I vow to Dance my dance, Sing my song, because No one else can live my life.

I MAKE THIS SHIFT TODAY!!
