#9 Second Most Important Day Of Life

‘ The two most important days of your life are: 

The day you are born and The day you find out why.’

 

_Mark Twain

 

It goes without saying that one of most celebrated days of a person all over the world is their birthdays. This is a day when every person who can afford it, buys cake, candles, drinks, calls friends and families and celebrates with them.

But this quote is telling us that we ought no to be hung up only on our birthdays but also as you celebrate it, also take time to think about why. For what reason were you born? What is your destiny? The day you will be able to answer such personal and deep questions, your life will start making sense.

I personally believe that every one of the 11 billion( if my math is correct) on earth has a particular and special place that only they can fill. Nobody is born just to go with the flow and repeat what others have already done. Each one of us has something no matter how little to give to the betterment of the world. It is our duty to take time and find out our proper place and position in the society.

Today, i’m encouraging you to look deeper into yourself, discover the treasure, the gem that only you have and use it to make a difference in the world. It might take some time, effort and numerous trial and error but when you find it; your life will never be the same again. It may be singing, dancing, writting, acting, car racing, motivational speaking, teaching, whatever it may be, go for it.

The good news is that you already possess it, you already have what you need to make a difference in your generation. Believe in yourself and Refuse to die with your light unseen and un-shone because it is simply too beautiful to be hidden.

Dig deep and Find it!!!

#8 Dare To Be Yourself

 

People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

 

Mother Theresa


 I don’t know what narrative to put on this one but I.Love.It!!

Mother Theresa has just become one of my most favourite role model!! If she were alive, I’d literally send her baskets of flowers!!😅😅

 I really hope this quote blessed and inspired you to be your best self as much as it did for me!!

Until Next Time!!✋

#7 Problem Solving: Einstein Formula

” We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

_Albert Einstein


Reading this, I’m thinking: no wonder the guy was a genius! I mean if we all thought like this when faced with a problem, I’m sure a lot would be different. But its unfortunate that it’s not always like that; a person would lie and get in trouble instead of coming clean and tell the truth, they’d still add more lies and thus getting into more trouble than before. I think the reason i suck at math is because I have failed to do just that, change my thinking with every problem encountered. And this applies everywhere not just in maths.

We can’t keep doing the same thing and expect a different outcome, its just not possible. So whenever you encounter a difficult situation, take a step back to see how and why it came about because only that will help you to make the right decision. 

Check out this one too also from Albert Einstein: ” It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” I’d say that happened to him because he always searched for new ways, change his thinking and such, as he tried that, he’d have a eureka moment, discoveries, that’s why we’re still talking about him even today.

So, Let’s change our thinking, discover new better  ways to handle daily issues and who know maybe it is that that will taken one at the center of the world. 

If we translate it in today’s language, I  believe it would be:” Think outside the box.”

What’s ur take on this?

Much Blessings!!



#6 Something We Can All Learn From

” Learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.”

_Groucho Marx


Well, there you have it. Ever since I was young, I have heard times and times again that experience is the best teacher but it just never convinced me. I believe that Experience is a teacher alright just not the best.

Looking at quote, I fell like shouting:” YESS” but I’m refraining myself!!😁 nevertheless, Groucho Marx hit the bull’s eye; we can’t go through life expecting to learn from our own experiences only. We gotta also read, listen to other people’s stories, watch and observe and learn from all that. Learning is a continuous process and it’s not done only through books but also from our entourage. I myself I am an observer, many a times I’ve been accused of staring too much or being shy whereas really all I’m doing is observing people, listening, paying attention to every detail, it’s just like a puzzle to me. But maybe that’s just my weirdness!!😅😅

I don’t know about you but for myself, i have avoided some very serious troubles by learning from others therefore I’m encouraging you to try this new way of learning, you won’t regret it. Also gotta keep in mind that no man’s an island.

If you’re faced with a problem, remember you’re not the first one to face it so before making a decision try to see and research how those that faced it overcame it or if they failed, why and how they failed.

What do you think about that quote? Agree or disagree? Feel free to comment your thoughts.


Much blessings!!

#5 Don’t Focus Only On Your Rearview Mirror

Never be a prisoner of your past, it was just a lesson not a life sentence.”

_Unknown


I don’t know who wrote this one but when I saw it, it spoke to me. It’s true that one’s past has a huge influence on the present and one may say that it shapes the person you later become; but let it not be a prison. Let us not hold on to the past hurts and tragedies. It’s true it was painful, dark and traumatising but we gotta look beyond that, see it as a life lesson and move forward to the future we desire not the one we fear.

Whatever’s happened to you, don’t let it hold you down, use it as a catapult to move forward. Don’t sit in the driving seat of your life and drive looking in the rearview mirror. I have had many times in my life when I thought that it was the end, that nothing good was ever going to happen; sometimes we find ourselves in that place between a rock and a hard place and you begin to think: “this is it, this is the end” isn’t it? Here’s the good news:
“No matter the length of the night, the morning will come and the sun will rise again.”

Looking at the past as a lesson not a life sentence is how you turn your scars into stars.



Thank you!!

#4 Express yourself: You Are Unique

To the heart in you, don’t be afraid to feel

To the sun in you, don’t be afraid to shine
To the ocean in you, don’t be afraid to rage

To the silence in you, don’t be afraid to break.



Najwa Zebian


This speaks volume!! I can’t even begin to wrap my head around it.

What I see is: every person on earth is unique and particular. There are no photocopies, every person is original in his/her own way. No matter your position  and circumstances in life, you still have something to give. There’s someone out there who is in need of what you have, what you know, what you can do. 

So don’t be afraid to express yourself, let your heart feel, let your sun shine, let your ocean rage, break the silence!! Why?
Because there is no one and there’ll never anyone quite like you.


Feel free to express yourself by dropping one or two comments!! 

#3 Words Vs Actions

Children have never been good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.”


James Baldwin


This right there, talks of real education. Being part of big family i have come to realise that my siblings aren’t really good at listening at all. For instance, I could tell my brother a thousand time to eat and he wouldn’t listen but when he sees me eating, he’d be like: ” hey make me something too”. But just not to blow my own trumpet even if it’s mine and i ought to be the one to blow it , I also behaved the same when I was his age.😅😅

This goes to show that when it comes to education, it is important to lead by example. Even research shows people remember most what they see than what they hear.

It’s actually true, there’s a another quote that says: “Action speak louder than voice.”  

 So, you got siblings, children, students, cousins, nieces, nephews, talk with your voice and your actions!!

What’re your thoughts on this?  

You’ll find me in the comment section!!

#2 This Is How You Know


You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.”

Bob Hope


When I read this quote, the first thing that came to mind was: “voila!!” Second was: Can this even happen!?

Then I remembered my upcoming grandpa birthday, he will be reaching 100 years of age. Amazing right!? 

So, in his case, I believe that the candles will definitely be more expensive than the cake!!😂😂😂

How abouy you!? Whats ur take on this? Ur welcome to share by commenting!!

I dedicate this quote to all the elders and grandparents in the world!! Long life and Peace from God!!
