Loving "YOU"

“I don't like myself, I'm crazy about myself”

How often do we say things like this to ourselves. As a matter of fact how often do we even talk to ourselves ? Have you ever tried it or do you laugh at the very thought of it ?

"Talk to myself? !!!, What am I Stupid ? !! "

Confession time - I Talk to myself. Am I stupid ? Noways. I love spending time with MYSELF. Generally, people are always surrounded by others through relationships or circumstances. Whether its Home or Office, you are rarely alone ; even if your a social outcast. So what am I trying to get at here is to ask yourself, how much time do you spend with the one you should love the most, YOURSELF ? Or are you looking for that Love and Approval from someone else ?

Every now and then I take a walk at the Race Course, to consciously spend time with "me".  And trust me, not only do you hear your thoughts more clearly but you also have these awesome breakthrough ideas . How can you even expect someone to love your company, if you yourself dont. Being alone is fun. It helps to get to know "YOU" and value what "YOU" are all about. And believe you me, if you genuinely Love "YOU", it won't matter what people say or think of you. I have seen people vulnerable and sensitive towards comments and criticism. Its like giving another person a Remote to CONTROL the way you should feel. I honestly dont even like the IDEA of being CONTROLLED. Dont think you do either.

So what are "YOU" all about. Explore yourself. Self-Discovery is a Road less Travelled, but is also known to be the best Journeys one can take. You might just have a Paradigm Shift for all you know. Life begins and ends with "YOU". There is only one "YOU".

I am Proud to be "ME". Are you?


Go to a Book Store. Get a hot beverage and an uplifting book.

Wear your ipod to the park and admire nature.

Go for a swim. I've personally taken my best decisions in a swimming pool.

Watch a Movie in the cinema by yourself. Its an experience .(Atleast you wont have to share your popcorn)

Drive far away from all the metropolitan hustle.

Meditation is great. Do it and then judge for yourself.

In the immortal words of Oscar Wilde, "“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance"

To "YOU" !

 " When life throws lemons, make lemonade or just bring out the Tequila ".

In other words, we face situations and incidents as a part of our everyday Life. But more important or rather crucial than the situation, is our response or reaction to it. There is not much difference in spelling between the two words response and reaction, but there is a world of difference that it makes to ones life. Reaction is being in alignment with the event that you just experienced. If someone shouts at you, you shout back. If someone irritates you, you get irritated. Getting the flow ?

Well read on. We do this on a regular basis that it has become a part of us and we dont realise. If you feel you dont belong to my generalisation here, good for you. But this habit that we have sub-consciously created for ourselves, allows our circumstances to dictate and control the way we feel. So if we could change that , woudnt that be the best.

Someone wise once said and still says, " Happiness is a Choice.". Just try this exercise and let me know how it works for you. Everytime your faced with a negative circumstance or situation, before reacting immediately, just imagine yourself as a third party to whats happening, think for a few seconds if it is really worth reacting negatively over, and most of the times you should say " No, this is not worth it especially at the cost of my happinesss". This is when you are Responding to the scenario.

So there you have it. All you have to do, is make the Right Choice for You !

And when your a Happy individual you will find yourself surrounded by Happy individuals. Its the secret formula - Like attracts Like.
