The Spirit of Trees

I admire the spirit of trees
& want to live learning from it.

I want to be one with the tree
But I do not want to be a tree…
For if every man becomes a tree
Who would be there to nurture &water And witness their beauty.

Trees need us and we need them. There is synergy dancing between us.
As we care to nourish the nature around us.
We are nourished back by nature.

We are born to live along with trees
They are life’s longings for itself
Like ours sons and daughters
They are fragile and strong
And share untold wisdom within
And live sharing of themselves.

They protect us with their shade
as much as they nourish us with their bearings.
In the strength of the their interconnects we realise
The value in the interdependence.
They are because we are
We are because they are!

I deeply revere the spirit of these trees and bow down in gratitude to thee!šŸ™

Remember these 5Rs

1. Refuse what you do not need,
2. Reduce what you do need,
3. Reuse what you consume,
4. Recycle what you cannot Refuse, Reduce or Reuse, and
5. Repurpose (Compost) the rest.

Share and spread awareness of how each of us can sustain our environment.

Stay True

On Honesty and Integrity

Stay true…
To your words and deeds given and done.
For they are who you truly are.
Backing out in both, after promises
Remember is not an option.
For it shows up poorly for the self.

10 Tips to Body Confidence

In an age of self obsession bordering on extremes of behaviour from starving to binging, from wearing those uncomfortable hip breaking harmful high heels to choosing crazy outfits that fool you in the name of fashion, to wearing outrageous clothes without it actually suiting your personality, just to fit in and feel accepted I find a lot of people youngsters especially finding themselves at odds with their natural body and having issues with who they truly are. It reflects in the clothes they wear as much as in their attitude to the fast convenience food they choose to eat.

Here in this article I address this very insecurity and deep need to measure up to the so called dictates of trends and fashion in the name of modernity and suggest ways to work with yourself to help yourself shine your best inside out. For, a comfortable and relaxed confident body is the best outfit you can wear.

A positive body image brings optimism into your life and makes it easier to manage stress.

It also helps you cope the pressures of social situations with confidence. Below, Iā€™ve listed 10 tips to help you in owning a more positive body image and relationship with yourself.

  • Be kind to yourself

Liking who you are and feeling good about being yourself begins with being good to yourself and showing yourself loving kindness.

  • Respect thy Self

Move beyond a need for validation from others. Your life and happiness must never be dictated by assuming what others may be thinking of you. Avoid seeking approval from others.

  • Think well and exercise the power of positivity

Keep a check on your own thoughts and steer clear of negative self-talk. See the positives in yourself and others and speak positively. See life transform for the better.

  • The company you keep matters

Surround yourself with kind and positive people. Avoid those who are self-obsessed and definitely stay away from bullies.

  • Cultivate a good attitude towards life

As you continue to work on your self-esteem remember body confidence is a matter of attitude and the way you carry yourself.

  • Cultivate good posture and poise

Work on your sense of poise, avoid slouching and fidgeting. This can help you tremendously in boosting your self-esteem in any social situation.

  • Speak well

Your body is always listening. So, speak well of yourself and others. Make it a habit to start and end the day on a positive note.

  • Embrace Self-value

Try to understand your weaknesses and accept them as challenges to work on. Treat yourself well. Make sure to eat well, exercise, or take a walk. Be healthy and groomed. Make it a part of daily life.

  • Take it easy

Over perfection is an obsession and can ruin your self-esteem and self-confidence. Ease up on yourself. Donā€™t sweat the small stuff.

  • Own yourself

Embrace the uniqueness that you are endowed with. Remember you matter. You are so much more than a title, a rank, or a dress size. Donā€™t be desperate to fit in. Most importantly, be interested in your life and actively participate in it. Own yourself.

As you practise working on all these aspects and envision the positives, you create a positive shift in your perspectives.

Because you can!

On Nurturing 5

Nurturing Hope & Care

Hope is here to stay!’

Nurturing is a life affirming process ….rooted in bettering care and creating hope for a better life. There are many experiments conducted to support how even an exposure to nature like being amidst trees and tranquil places, hearing birdsongs and watching the sky , the sea and the sand can be extremely nurturing for ones health and wellbeing. The healing element associated with nature, is in the nurture it provides to replenish the soul.

The very nature of nurturing is both very inclusive and expansive in the same breath.The scope of positive outcomes of good nurturing is deeply significant to humanity at large . For that is what is truly important to sustain our planet . Every being’s effort in nurturing the world in and around him to thrive.

At the root of Creativity is a nurtured thought process. To nurture is to nourish the being with appropriate care.
Speaking of care giving, it is often a part of nurturing which can be rather challenging to say the least. In case of elders there can be a lot of unexplained resentment the care giver has to deal with for many seniors may take a while to come to terms with the many aspects of growing old.

Patience can have its limits too and with growing intolerance in a world which is more about the sense of self importance, the need to achieve much can stifle any thoughts of pursuing time consuming and almost never ending aspects of nurturing .

It is true the world is getting a little too self centered . However the realization of the impacts of an uncaring and indifferent citizens of the world is also hitting home and that too right from the modern changes of family systems in place.

The concern for global warming and carbon imprints is touching an all time high for the world now is slowly realizing how much it needs to nurture its own living spaces to ensure it has a world left to live at all. And thus thankfully hope is here to stay!
