Peace begins when Expectations End 🕊️✌️


"How could she say that to me?"

"Why did she refuse to help me?"

"Why didn't she come to see me?"

We all have some expectations when it comes to how we want to be treated, Isn't it?

It is very natural, it's how we all are wired

& when those expectations are not met, Most of us get disappointed,our expectations backfire & create a great deal of pain.

Does that mean we should stop doing good to others, as we are not getting any return?

 No!

We don't need to lose our goodness, but definitely need to reduce our expectations from others

It does hurt deep when we don't get back what we expect.

But the fault lies in the problem itself

The burden we expect them to carry, might not always be mutual & it does differ from their perspectives too.

If you ask me, I practice empathy- I simply like to help, I do things everyday that don’t have an ROI, and that's also because it's naturally wired in me! 

I would sometimes go out of the way to help people out! That's because I just think doing the right thing is always the right thing.

Many times people are so worried about what other people think of them, why didn't they do what they thought they'll do!

So,

The moment you have such thoughts try to reverse that gear of mind & remind yourself-

"I'm not fragile, but a great person inside,& great people do get great treatment in return, no matter how much time it takes and I too, shall deservingly get it❤️"

A peice of advice I received shortly and would pass on -'' Cut your expectations short lest you wallow in disappointments. Because Expectations are root cause of all heartaches"

Granny's Patchwork of Love❤️

"Your Grandmother would've been proud of you, if she were here today" This is something I often hear from my family and relatives. She passed away when I was in Grade 8 and I miss her more as I grow older because now I understand what values she imbibed in me  My Grandma was a Social Science teacher and a Principal in a Government School, and my source of inspiration & guidance. She was an angel in disguise who taught me how to care. She was a spiritual person who believed in God and treated everyone with love and respect.  She always said "You never know when you are interacting with an angel, so be kind and generous always".  Since she passed, all I have is her fond memories, her valuable lessons & our laughs and giggles.  One particular thing she asked me to take as an advice as an oxigen canister in this fast spreading virus borne world.  That was -"Don’t ever let your ice cream melt while you’re counting someone else’s sprinkles.” 

History isn't just about Past🤝

"To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child, For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of History." - Marcus Tullius Cicero I'm often asked - What is the use or relevance of studying history? Why on earth does it matter What happened long time ago? The answer is that history is inescapable. It studies the past and legacies of past in present. Far from being a dead subject, it conmects things through time and encourages its students to take a long view of such connections.   Understanding the linkage between the past and present is absolutely basic for a good understanding of the condition of being human. That, in a nutshell, is why history matters. It is not just ‘useful’, it is essential. The broad span of human experience, viewed both in depth and longitudinally over time, is the subject of history as a field of study. History enables us to contemplate the e

Hope grins on the doorway of 2022♥️

The chilly winds on my face, the little mist in the air, red nose, cold hands, mom screaming take care oh, with December, the year comes to an end,  some tears some smiles, and i made one new friend.  The end of this year full of ambiguities is near, bringing the time to reflect what we reared in the whole long year, other than lament and fear. A time to reflect which do's and don'ts crossed our lines & which relations grew fine. What was learnt and what was taught. What was new and what felt like draught,  What engrossed within our hearts & what disappeared fast. What made us grateful & kind, What was love when cherished from distance, What was mirth when tried to express, What was gained and what was lost.  Was all a part of the year just going to pass. Falling again and again with consistency, Then bringing my life into existence, I learned that this world is here to tear you, Are you enough strong to create your own space, Only then, you can embrace,
