For a good life.
For a good life.
A changing world
In this world of metaverses and advanced technology where emotional connects brings us closer, no matter the actual physical distance, building & sustaining trustfulness, integrity becomes paramount benchmarks for buisnesses in digital space. Companies that can understand this need and work around it by providing clarity of information and create experiences with strong data securities will have an advantage. Even terms and policies on user data needs transparent communication.
On the other hand the question remains how the world will adapt to new ways of work with avatars taking prominence over actual humans. The lines of real and virtual are truly interweaved. While this generation born in a digital world is synced in with the changes like AI storming in to our life the earlier generation is still reeling with trust issues.
Times are changing and how
From a generation that grew up without phones & computers & to a world that knows not to be, without a mobile phone & laptops.
In all this changing there is still one element of truth that is consistently evident.
The need for human connection. As development improves the way we interact with one another it is getting extremely important to feel a sense of trust.The way of work has higher need for transparency along with the responsibility.And that is creating more interdependence and collaborative styles of work.
Autocracy has to move to meritocracy for trust to be formed. For we are living in a world where everyone can function from anywhere at the touch of button,and can be informed and aware in real time.
Challenges are plenty but solutions are also clear.Leading the change building trust. Creating and sustaining better relationships.It’s all in us, the way we behave interact and live each moment. Trust takes time to form and be instilled. Once trust is gained it becomes a gamechanger. In any successful relationship be it professional or personal it is important to understand the need to cultivate and sustain efforts towards trustful connections.

Stories from Life and Living
In this series I share stories that are thought provoking, inspiring, motivational or touching our lives in some way or the other.
Better late than never
My mom had a lot of problems. She did not sleep and she felt exhausted. She was irritable, grumpy, and bitter. She was always sick, until one day, suddenly, she changed.
The situation was the same, but she was different.
One day my dad said to her:
– I’ve been looking for a job for three months and I haven’t found anything, I’m going to have a few beers with friends.
My mom replied:
– It’s okay.
My brother said to her:
– Mom, I’m doing poorly in all subjects at the University …
My mom replied:
– Okay, you will recover, and if you don’t, well, you repeat the semester, but you pay the tuition.
My sister said to her:
– Mom, I hit the car.
My mom replied:
– Okay daughter, take it to the workshop, find how to pay and while they fix it, get around by bus or subway.
Her daughter-in-law said to her:
– Mother-in-law, I come to spend a few months with you.
My mom replied:
– Okay, settle in the living room couch and look for some blankets in the closet.
All of us at my mom’s house gathered worried to see these reactions.
We suspected that she had gone to the doctor and that she was prescribe some pills of “I don’t give a damn about 1000 mg.”
She would probably also be ingesting an overdose.
We then proposed to do an “intervention” to my mother to remove her from any possible addiction she had towards some anti-tantrum medication.
But what was not the surprise, when we all gathered around her and my mom explained:
“It took me a long time to realize that each person is responsible for their life, it took me years to discover that my anguish, my mortification, my depression, my courage, my insomnia and my stress, did not solve their problems but aggravated mine.
I am not responsible for the actions of others, but I am responsible for the reactions I express to that.
Therefore, I came to the conclusion that my duty to myself is to remain calm and let each one solve what corresponds to them.
I have taken courses in yoga, meditation, miracles, human development, mental hygiene, vibration and neurolinguistic programming, and in all of them, I found a common denominator: finally they all lead to the same point.
And, it is that I can only interfere with myself, you have all the necessary resources to solve your own lives.
I can only give you my advice if you ask me and it depends on you to follow it or not.
So, from now on, I cease to be: the receptacle of your responsibilities, the sack of your guilt, the laundress of your remorse, the advocate of your faults, the wall of your lamentations, the depositary of your duties, who should solve your problems or spare a tire every time to fulfill your responsibilities.
From now on, I declare all independent and self-sufficient adults.
Everyone at my mom’s house was speechless.
From that day on, the family began to function better, because everyone in the house knows exactly what it is that they need to do.
A HAPPY WOMAN!!( pls feel free to share)
Sometimes good work needs appreciation… And that becomes a source of inspiration to do more … Today I am sharing a few of my dear daughters social work experiences at her stint with the HOPE foundation in India, in her own words that she had expressed about the satisfaction and contentment from the heart in doing good and sharing goodwill with the world around us.
I hope it inspires and motivates more in the path of positive intentions and acts of goodwill.
Have been working with an non profit organisation called H.O.P.E for almost a year now.Even though I focused primarily on events , I did want to try helping in their other verticals like Ad Care ,which was basically teaching shelter home children , academically as well as non academically.
Now, the children here hated studying and upon entering for the first time , all I noticed was books thrown outside the window! So we decided to use glitter pens and stickers to motivate them.
I was one such volunteer who taught English through games and then I would draw something for them on their hands because they loved the idea of ‘glitter tattoos’. Everytime I’d do so, all the kids would lineup to get one of their own and I honestly enjoyed the process every Sunday even though I sucked at drawing(I literally drew the kid version of a bird but that would still make them happy). Soon it led to me writing their names for them glitter pens in different fonts.
Coming back to the photo, this was clicked a day before Christmas and I was writing their names in different fonts when two kids asked me to write their parents names as well. This took me by shock as most of them are orphans or have been abandoned by their parents. Nevertheless, I did write their names the way they wanted and it lead to a moment that crushed my soul.
I watched them both High five after the tattoos for the fact that both of them had never seen their parents and they abandoned them here. I was truly appalled as I saw them jump in excitement and running down the hallway.
When I was leaving , the kids came to me and asked me to click a photo with them and asked me to spend every festival with them as they felt lonely. Kudos to our team and H.O.P.E for making a difference! 🙂
Hand in hand
Sometimes me ahead of you
At times you ahead of me
Hands held together
No matter the test of time
Two hands of two hearts
Still together as one.
To be truly happy
Cultivate self love
Be content with yourself
And you will be happy
Inside & outside.
In every now
Is a choice
To enhance life
Within and around you
Whatever path you take
But how you live your life
What you feel in the living
What you choose to notice
What you are listening
And what you understand
From it all defines the now
And charts the way ahead.
Be all you can be
Let your Uniqueness
Begin to manifest in life
For that is what is meant
For you to do
And trust in the power of you.
All of life is a dance…
Every being has its own ballet
Every life it’s own patterns
Every pattern has its own path
Every path its own flow
Every flow its own beauty
All is uniquely orchestrated
To manifest and align in time.
Allowing the art to speak and acknowledging its flow is of essence, to sense and enjoy the art itself.
Learning to dance & dancing socially comes along with many lessons and learnings…
In any partner dancing its important to respond than simply react to the movement direction from the partner in the flow.
The cultivation of the ability of any dancers acknowledgement & appreciation of their dance partner or other dancers, differences in movement speed or artistry not merely as tolerable, brings on the required humility and grace in the dance.
This is in itself the essence of a rich and rewarding social dancing experience.
You are given an opportunity to travel to beautiful locales on work or pleasure ,in a country so far away from your own
Everything is wonderful and picturesque…
Yet, you are traveling along with people/ or paired with a person of completely different interests.
If you are a morning person and they are late risers
If you like walking and they like to rest more.
If you like to explore museums and art scenes and they have no interest in anything art
If you want to experience new culture by meeting new people and connecting with them than simply trying out food .
What if you want quick bites on the go and they like fancy dining experiences.
What if you want to start early and you are exasperated as they prefer late afternoon after a lazy lunch…
What if you are up and ready to go and they take a really long time to get ready 🤔
You like to capture experiences and rejoice in the memories and they have no particular interest in photography.
When you like to have a conversation freely and they are too busy or too silent, you often realise its better to remain silent unless spoken to even if there is company.
What would you do …
You make things right for you!
Let’s see, it’s not all that bad
You are in a new location….
You realise its better to have some company than traveling alone in some places at least.
You begin to appreciate the environment and yourself in it.
You appreciate others who are around.
You pay extra interest in people and places, the quirkiest, even the strangest and most peculiar things as much as the ordinary seem to matter somehow.
You try to find happiness in whatever you see.
You adapt to things as it comes.
You accept everything, as your life’s myriad moments.
You remember to focus on the positives acknowledge the good in them and move on…
Happiness is in you!
Tommorow is another new day!
You can intend for change
But you cannot force it.
Your message is best understood
In empathic connection.
Do your best
Sow the seeds in hope
Let the best happen in time.
