On happiness

Everyone has a different idea of true happiness.

What do you think you need to be truly happy?

Is it love?

Is it hope?

Is it purpose?

Is it inclusion?

Is it health?

Is it material or non material?

I do think happiness is an inside job.

We are responsible for our happiness.

Feel free to share your thoughts on happiness.

On Managing Anger

One moment of anger

Can wreak havoc on your health

Take a moment to pause

When you sense anger

Make a habit to breathe

Out your anger

Inhale a breathe of peace

And exhale the anger away…

For both cannot coexist.

Make space for peace within.

“Anger is like a storm rising up from the bottom of your consciousness. When you feel it coming, turn your focus to your breath.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Breathe in peace

Exhale out anger

Inside you, let peace prevail

Over moments of anger…

Be you

There is great power

In being yourself

You will know

You are enough

To be all that you are

Be you

That’s what u are meant to be

When you arrive at being comfortable being yourself,and in front of others, your gifts will shine through and you will make a positive impact on this world.

All it takes is being the authentic you!

The Power of the Heart

Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.
Mahatma Gandhi

The Power of the Heart

What is your kind of power?

Power of Influence

Where your charisma

And your words and behavior

Hold them in sway

And allows you to lead

Or is it Dominance

Where your overt assertion

Makes you take charge

Wherever you are

Do you lead with your heart

Or is it all about the mind

The way you weild your power

Speaks much of you as a person

Are you powerful enough

To let love be felt & expressed

To have patience in waiting

To listen keen to what’s unsaid

To know that being gentle is strength.

Always remember the path of the heart

Is far powerful than the mind.

For its far expansive it knows the way.

On Self Belief


It’s easy to get caught up in seeking validation and approval from others, but the truth is that the only person you truly need to impress is yourself.

You are enough, just as you are, and your worth doesn’t depend on the opinions or actions of others. When you recognize your own value and believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

Learning to be comfortable in your own skin and trusting in your own abilities can take time, but it’s a journey worth taking.

When you focus on cultivating a positive relationship with yourself, you’ll find that you’re happier, more confident, and better equipped to handle life’s challenges. Remember, you don’t need anyone else’s approval or validation to be happy and fulfilled. You are enough, simply by existing as you are.

It’s common to fall into the trap of seeking validation and approval from others, but the reality is that your self-worth isn’t dependent on the opinions or actions of others. You are enough, and improving yourself from where you are, is the only thing that truly matters. By recognizing your own value and having faith in yourself, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

Developing a positive relationship with yourself and being comfortable with who you are takes time, but it’s a worthwhile journey.

By prioritizing your own well-being and self-belief, you’ll discover a greater sense of happiness, confidence, and resilience.

Remember that your happiness and fulfillment don’t require external validation or approval.

You are enough simply by being you.

Beautiful You

Beauty is a very subjective term inspite of all the objectification that goes on in the name of beauty.

Beautiful you

Every age has a charm

Of its own doing

Every life is beautiful

In its own way!

What to speak of a lifetime?

Self care

Came across this interesting forward of 10 steps to self care. All relevant to one’s overall well-being.

Self care is very important for your mind body integration.

Self care is all encompassing. From physical to mental, it is about holistically addressing the external to internal aspects of Self management.

A few questions to yourself…

Do you think you have been caring for your own body mind and soul?

How much time do you allocate to your self care every day?

What are your ways to Self care? Care to list them?

What is life without each other?

What is life without each other?

We are bonded in a connection
By infinite fibers between us
Both visible & invisible
At times tangible in the feeling
Some times palpable in the sensing
But it takes an acknowledgement
Of the beauty of us beyond the I.

On Leadership


In an increasing uncertainty in a volatile times, it is important to work from strengths than weaknesses and embrace the flexibility of approach.


Work on self-improvement by understanding your personality, your skills, and responsibilities. Be open to feedback and ideas and avoid bracketing yourself into one type of person, so you can stretch yourself and be able to adapt to whatever the circumstances. This way, you can resolve a broader spectrum of situational challenges without self limiting beliefs blocks.

Become a competent leader who knows to surf through the tides of change and stay afloat.

Remember there is infinite power in possibilities in you

All it needs to begin with is the first step.

Precious life

Spirit of life and living

Makes the soul

Treat the body as a temple

Make friends with your mind

Allow the body & mind to coexist

Let them be harmonious

The life feels just right…

To be really healthy and truly well all that is required is that we not only treat our body right, but our mind and soul too.

Power of a Moment

Everything starts from a decisive moment…

Decision is often the difference between greatness and mediocrity. In every man’s life there comes a time when he must search for a cause, a work, an ideal to which he can give himself. Whether he says β€˜Yes’ or β€˜No’ to the challenge will determine his future.”

Wilferd Peterson

A great motivational quote.

It opens up a few relevant questions on decisions and decision making.

How decisive are you about your life?

Do you take your decisions seriously?

Or do often you let/ want others take decisions for you.

Do you take time to make decisions?

Do you stand for your decisions and do your decisions stand the test of time?

There are different decision making styles based on how a problem is perceived.

A good decision begins with begins with identification and envisioning of the goal ,

Secondly it is important to collect all information so that you can weigh options and alternatives.

Next it is paramount to consider the consequences of the decision before taking the decision.

Once a decision is taken is necessary to be able to evaluate the decisions in time.

Worth thinking of how much a good decision in a moment has power of change life.

On thankfulness

There is so much more to thankfulness

Your mind body and spirit

Are integrated in the emotions

Your life becomes more abundant

Your health improves along the way

For you hold not expression or suppress feelings

You appreciate what needs to be appreciated

You create circles of light hope and joy in thankfulness.

Make sure to add yourself in your list of thankfulness.

All is a dance

There is a dance
In every leaf and flower
In every bud and bloom
In every twig and tree
In every turn and twist
In every life in the living
Of natures creation.
There is grace of uniqueness
Of patterns, of wisdom Beyond compare…
All knowing, all pervading
Magnificent Omnipresence.
Amazing Nature
Amazing Grace.
