Gift to Oneself

Gift to Oneself

Let’s look at it NOW. What is it that you are trying to look at in everything around you in nature, in this life, in  human beings and in places. What is it that is making you admire them and say WOW. Wish I had been like them, wish something were like this, wish I were there and NOT here, wish I were more of THIS and more of THAT and nothing like I AM right now.

Gosh!! Isn’t that madness if you don’t know WHY ? Its due to a certain degree of perfectionism in us human beings that we try and attain. In a world, where everybody is good at something and best at rest, why is it that you want to be like them and not like YOURSELF !! “We as individuals have some or the other want and sometimes amidst that WANT, we forget to LIVE.”

“To live this life as a wonderful gift, a blessing , a day to contribute, a day to fulfill your goals, a day to be proud of your accomplishments, a day to pat yourself and say I am capable of doing everything, a day to look at unimaginable dreams and infact what not.”

When in this life everything is in abundance, what makes you think otherwise that there isn’t?

I looked at the birds and smiled

For they were kissing the sky with their wings

I looked at the sun and bowed down

For its sunshine majestically lit the earth with a crown

I looked at the temples and thought to myself

What is the innocent plea that every heart has to make

I looked at the mothers face and cried

For she has always kept everything at stake

I looked at the rivers and the mountains and sighed

For the ripples of the water were silent and still echoed in ganges with pride

I looked at myself and asked

What is it NOW that you want for your life

This life may never have been perfect

But gives you everything that you want to create to live a future bright.

Love yourself. This is the best gift from YOU to YOU.
