Do you need a bungalow? Or a million dollars job? To #keepsmiling? Maybe if you set yourself up for these! But none of it is a must.
Today I was short of cash in my pocket. in fact, I had realised this ‘about to knock’ shortage several days ago! Being the last few days of the month I was trying not to withdraw from the bank.
However, today my pocket balance was humungous $0!🤐 And suddenly when putting up clothes to wash, “WHOAAAH!!!😮” I found a hundred rupees note😎. I can’t narrate the feeling of joy and surprise. It happens to me by chance but keeping cash in such places could surprise you and give reasons to #keepsmiling😁
What is the means to #keepsmiling forever? Yes, I have already shared a few. I just thought of one more for myself actually. Pick it up if it suits you.
Most of us wish to be successful and achieve. Good, definitely great! We all should attempt to be our very best!
At the same time, what if you base your happiness on success and achievements of others? I mean that we should FIND 😛 somebody succeeding and feel glad about the person!
Think about it logically and ’emotionally’😝! You are only ‘one’ person, and ‘others’ are in HUMENGOUS numbers. Already we are several billions of people across the globe. Can you imagine the opportunities for you to #keepsmiling?
I frequently come across a video of the superstar Amitabh Bachchan. In it, the bollywood superstar narrates about the days when he was struggling for an opportunity.
After coming home the disappointed, ‘yet to be’ actor would say, “There is too much struggle in life.”
To this, his father, Sri Harivansh Rai Bachchan, would say, “So long as there is life, there’s going to be struggle.”
Such a powerful statement to remember. And one that will enable us to #keepsmiling come whatever may! Just being aware of this FACT makes everything much simpler.
Walking on the street, sitting in a restaurant, standing in a shop, choose anything!
Whatever you do, wherever you go, make it a practice to observe. When you begin to observe the people around, you will find numerous moments that will make you smile.😝
Just yesterday I was near a bus stop in Chennai and a person slept off on the roadside. He appeared heavily drunk. A shopkeeper came to pick him up and the drunk guy tried to hit him (maybe he felt that someone wants to kidnap).
Then the shopkeeper got furious and man!!! Slap upon slap upon slap, he pasted six to seven right on the cheek of the drunk. And the drunk was sent back to sleep on the road.
I stood by the side and I could not stop but had to #keepsmiling😊! And whenever I remember the scene I am made to smile!!! No, I didn’t feel like doing anything except to #keepsmiling.
There’s more to this observed incident that I will share later! Have you ever had such an experience to #keepsmiling? Would you smile if you were in my place? Just curious 🤔
Job, family, friends, relatives, paying bills, buying vegetables, meeting doctors, do this, do that, on and on and on… It’s very natural to feel overwhelmed at times with such a long list.
Breeeathe and just sleep off! Yes, I am not saying to just do it. Instead just leave it.
when you wake up everything will stay! no earthquake is to appear if you sleep. But you will be able to #keepsmiling. 😁
What has been bothering you? What is it you have been wanting to speak about?
Are you scared about how it will impact the other person? Hmm!
What do you feel about the impact of ‘not saying it’ on yourself? Show some empathy towards the person and say it. He has the right to know!
It is needed…. You must show some empathy towards yourself too! They will definitely understand you.
My last post tried to help you #keepsmiling by revisiting what you liked doing. Today, I write the opposite! Do what you have never done!
We are frequently told by family/friends/society how to behave, what to do and what not to. Humans, as social animals, by their very nature, are inclined to listen to people for approval or to be part of a group, etc. And we try to make others happy.
At one point, we realize that it was not something we really wanted to do. You are not responsible for everything and everyone!
So, what is it that you have always wanted to do? But have never done? Go back in your memories, and think, “what is it!” Then come back and JUST DO IT!
