See the Good in People ✨


"She is so authoritative"

"He is so arrogant and cocky"

"She always try to please everyone with something or the other"

"He always wants to be in a limelight"

We all have such thoughts running in our head whenever we interact with people, and somewhere or the other people do gossip, people lash out, and snipe at others to protect their fragile selves. They tear you down to make themselves look slightly better by comparison.

But my question to is "Are we a gold digger or a dirt digger?"

Wondering why I'm asking this? 

Well, If you are among those who like to point faults in people, this habit of yours may ruin you!

yes, you might not realise it, 

But,

it's an ultimate recipe of misery

We all have sensitivities that are specific to our upbringing, isn't it?

All that matters is how you look upon others,

Sometimes the ego that exists in our small portion of mind dominates our thoughts & it often provides a subtle psychological lift to our self esteem by diminishing the value of others

Its so easy to find a million flaws in someone, or to find reasons to dislike someone. 

It's easy to disagree with someone, or put someone down.

it's all the more easy to gossip about others, judge them without even knowing who they actually are and what are they going through. That’s something anyone can do. Anyone can focus on the negative in someone

It's easy to say that 'wow, their life looks so perfect, everyone loves them, 

But, Maybe their grass looks greener, because they’ve painted on its hue, Just remember from the other side, your grass looks greener too. Just because someone carries it well, doesn't mean it isn't heavy. 

It takes a humble mind to think of the good in others most of the time

Maybe if we sought out gold instead of dirt, the world might be a better and more peaceful place.

Be an example for others and make them wonder why you are different, be the one that finds gold

Always remind yourself how small you are in the amazing wondrous world around you

If we eliminate fault finding by turning within through the eyes of introspection, we'll realise how Imperfect we are!, for 1 fault we identify with someone, if We resolve to find 10 errors within ourselves we will become so busy digging up the dirt within ourselves that there may not be opportunities to point fingers at others. 

The more you invest in recognising the greatness of others the more it'll translate into recognising your own greatness

I love this quote bt Eleanor Roosevelt- " Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people" 

Stop verbalizing your negative thought even if you have a thought. Create a filter in your mind " if you don't have something nice to say, keep it to yourself" .
Life would be much more beautiful then.

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

Seek The Good❤️

Choice is the most powerful tool we have! Everything boils down to choice. We exist in a field of infinite possibilities. Every choice we make shuts an infinite number of doors and opens an infinite number of doors.  At any point we can change the direction of our lives by a simple choice.  It is all in our hands, our hearts, and our minds. In a world where it is easy to see the dirt, be the one that sees gold in everything❤️ Believe that people genuinely will do the right thing and have the best intentions when they begin something So stop, close your eyes, and think about the goodness in people instead of the negative tendencies. Seek out the positive intent ❤️ We all go through tough times, have bad days, sad days and boring days. We all experience times when we feel like nothing good can be found.  Though we can't totally avoid these days in our lives, but the choice comes down to how you handle those days when they do come. Will you wallow in the negative feelings?
