Are you a victim of bullying?

Have you been bullied? Are you a victim of bullying?

Most of the people are bullied in their teens and childhood…

Before I jump to the topic, let me start with a quotation by Chris Colfer, the famous actor says,

“When people hurt you over and over think of them as sand paper.They may scratch and hurt you but in the end you’ll end up polished.”

Now, let’s proceed. So, what is bullying? In short, bullying is a form of aggressive behavior that is hurtful. I must say;

“TREAT OTHERS THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED!”

That’s the GOLDEN RULE and it should be followed in every aspect of your life.

If someone was in a position to stop you from being bullied and did nothing, how would you feel?

If you find that unacceptable, you must do everything you can to stop others from hurting people.

Indeed, bullying is a huge problem in the world. According to recent studies, bullying victims are 9 times more likely to commit suicide. Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year and approximately 160,000 teens skip school due to bullying.

But why should these kids be the ones skipping schools and committing suicide when bullies roam free all over the place?

And what if the kid you bullied at school, grew up, and turned out to be the only surgeon who could save your life?

Bullying someone just because the person is different from you, shows that how unsatisfied are you, of your own self. We are all different and that’s what makes us unique and special in our own ways. That’s what makes life exciting and worth living.

I, myself was bullied at school…

Yes! It was undoubtedly the most depressing period of my life. I was too timid to ask for help. Everything seemed gloomy.

But then one day I realized something, something that  I hope you all realize…DIFFERENT is good. When someone tells you that you are different, SMILE, HOLD YOUR HEAD UP AND BE PROUD:) I realized that why should I let the world harm me by their ugly thoughts, words and actions. My precious life is too far and ahead from all this. If I was to commit suicide then why was I born? I was born to fight, to achieve the unachievable and to give my story an inspiring end, not a suicidal one!

I didn’t give up, I kept on fighting the hell out of me, I kept believing in myself! If I can do this; if I can understand the value of my life, if I can fight, if I can survive, then why can’t you?

Let me tell you clearly that I am not a magician, I didn’t have some magical powers at that time. I am not an angel. I am just a simple, common human being like YOU. You and I are made to conquer this world.

Some of the famous people who were bullied in school are short listed below;

1) Jackie Chan; the famous Martial Artist

2) Michael Phelps; the most decorated olympian

3) Daniel Radcliffe; the most favorite movie actor, also known as Harry Potter

And last but not the least,

4)Selena Gomez; one of the favourite singers

Screenshot_2018-11-20-12-13-22-083.jpeg

These are the names of just a few people, there are many more who were bullied and now are the most favourite ones.

Are you amazed of reading the names of these successful people with hurtful stories of bullying behind their fame and success?

I was very much surprised too. At the end, we only judge the book by it’s cover. We only see what seems good to our eyes. We just focus on their fame, their luxurious lifestyle, their branded and expensive dressings and their fake smiles for the audience.

But what about their untold stories?What about the pain they carry behind their smiles?

But, there are some painful stories behind every successful person. The most common one is ‘Bullying’.

Let me tell you, Zayn Malik and Angelina Jolie were also among the victims of bullying. They were badly bullied at school. Yeah that’s true!

But all these people and many more did not give up…they kept on breathing…they kept moving on…they kept on fighting the hell out of them…they cried; but stood up…

And today they are the most loved ones. We respect them, many of us admire them and consider them as our idols. They are the ones with great fan- following.

Now, think if at that time they would have committed suicide or would have gave up, they would have died without a happy day like today:) They would have died without a SUCCESS STORY! Without a happy and inspiring end:)

What do you do when a chapter ends? Do you close the book and never read it again?

Say yourself every day that it’s just a bad day not a bad life…one bad chapter does not mean your story is over…the sun goes down and it comes back up, the world it turns no matter what.

YOU ARE PERFECT! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! YOU ARE COURAGEOUS! YOU ARE INSPIRING! YOU ARE UNIQUE! YOU ARE SPECIAL!

I would like to conclude by stating that;

“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look and do nothing.”

So,

Be the voice for those who can’t use their own to yell or scream for help. Be strong, keep your head up high, and do your best to stop bullying once and for all!

Have a great day! Have a great start!

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

Screenshot_2018-11-20-11-29-06-415.jpegIt doesn’t matter what anyone says you can or can’t do. It doesn’t matter what opinions others have for your life, and what they consider possible.

If you BELIEVE IN YOURSELF , then ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! You are UNSTOPPABLE!

Why we don’t believe in ourselves?
That as soon as things get tough in our lives, we start doubting ourselves.
We start thinking that we may not make it up to the mark.
Stressing out, worrying, getting messed up in the box of negativity!

But why?

If a person who used to sleep on the floor in friends rooms, returning Coke bottles for food, money, and getting weekly free meals at a local temple become a business magnate and investor. Moreover, can be the chairman, chief executive officer, and co-founder of Apple Inc.; none other than Steve Jobs.

Screenshot_2018-11-20-12-33-25-313.jpeg

Then why can’t you?

If a failure in school become the owner of Microsoft; Bill Gates.

Screenshot_2018-11-20-12-31-00-231.jpeg

Then why can’t you?

When a person who’s teacher called him slow and mentally handicapped, who could not even speak until he was 4 and could not read until he was 7, become a theoretical physicist and can be the Noble Prize holder in Physics. You got it right; Albert Einstein!

Screenshot_2018-11-20-12-34-43-366.jpeg

Then why can’t you?

If a person who used to serve tea at a shop to support his football training can become a professional footballer. Yes, I am talking about Lionel Messi.

Screenshot_2018-11-20-12-37-55-379.jpeg

Then why can’t you?

Were all these people magicians? Ask yourself that if they can do it, why can’t you?

There is a long list of people who despite of millions of hindrances and difficulties kept on moving, kept believing in themselves and didn’t gave up.

They all succeeded because they believed that they can do it. Everyone said that they can’t but they kept working hard to prove everyone wrong. They didn’t give up! And that’s what matters!

If they all can make it then why can’t you? What’s your excuse?

Stop worrying how it’s going to happen and start believing that it will!

To be a champ you have to believe in yourself when no one else will. Make your foundation stronger by using the bricks, thrown by the world on you.

You need to be confident about yourself, you need to increase your self esteem, you need to believe in yourself.

So, wear those shoes of confidence, boldness, passion and courage. And go conquer the world with your outstanding potential and capabilities.

It’s easy to be all positive and consistent when everything is going your way. The real challenge is when nothing is going your way but still you keep driving hard towards your goal and keep believing in yourself.

Remember, when life is tough, you are tougher!

THAT’S WHEN YOU WILL SHINE!
THAT’S WHEN YOU’LL HAVE AN INSPIRING STORY!
YOUR story is valuable!
YOUR story of success!

You can’t build a STORY if you stop now. If you give up.
You need to STAND UP – to fight through your challenging moments, to SHINE through the dark times, to love through the hate, and to be the difference in an indifferent world.
To BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

It is wisely said;

A BIRD SITTING ON A TREE IS NEVER AFRAID OF THE BRANCH BREAKING,BECAUSE HER TRUST IS NOT ON THE BRANCH BUT ON ITS OWN
WINGS.ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

Most people are bloated with ordinary thoughts and mindsets.
They’re so full of average that they have no more appetite.
But you have to have an appetite for “EXTRAORDINARY.”
Beyond what people are doing – think beyond them!

THERE WILL ALWAYS BE DOUBTERS, and people below you, and people trying to put you down so they can feel higher, but you gotta STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF.
BELIEVE in your mind. Have some tunnel vision.
Then one day you will have your moment.
Because ANYTHING is possible if you just BELIEVE!

FEED your DREAMS.
If you can suffer through setbacks, through pain, RISE up with resilience once again, and again, and again!
ONE DAY THIS WORLD WILL TAP YOU ON THE SHOULDER & say…“THIS IS YOUR TIME TO SHINE”
YOU CAN HAVE BEEN AND DO ANYTHING YOU WANT
You just have to BELIEVE.
“IF YOU CAN BELIEVE IT,
YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT”
Once you start believing in yourself that’s when you turn dreams into reality and failures into opportunities.You will be unstoppable!

In short,
“IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN
YOURSELF ,NO ONE WILL.”

 

Stress Busters

Are you tired of life? Are you frustrated? Are things going out of order?

Screenshot_2018-11-20-12-47-38-586

Are you looking for some stress busters?
Here you go,fortunately you are at the right place!
“IF LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS, BITE THEM AND MAKE FUNNY FACES;)”
Indeed if you are stressed out, feel like giving up, filled with bundles of worries just remember;

EVERY DAY BRINGS MIRACLES…SO HOPE FOR THE BEST AND LEAVE THE REST!

LOOK TOWARDS THE BRIGHTER SIDE!

LOOK FOR LIGHT IN DARKNESS!

BRING YOUR OWN SUNSHINE!

Indeed,

“GOD GIVES THE HARDEST BATTLES TO HIS STRONGEST SOLDIERS…”

Feel glad that you are one of those bravest and strongest soldiers of God.
God knows that you will fight through it like a warrior, you have the courage to deal with this tough time.

Here are some of the best ways and stress busters to deal with stressful situations;

• STAY CALM, COMPOSED AND        BELIEVE IN YOURSELF:

Screenshot_2018-11-20-11-31-54-802.jpeg

“BUST THROUGH YOUR STRESS AND DISCOVER A NEW-FOUND SENSE OF INNER PEACE.”
Majority of the people panic at stressful situations.They harm themselves mentally,the brain gets weaker, the entire nervous system gets affected.
What we should actually do, is to stay calm and say yourself with a big smile that; “I AM A WARRIOR.” And believe me, this will solve half of the problem by itself, only once you see yourself as a courageous warrior. Remember, a warrior never gives up! He keeps fighting till his last breath.

• ANALYSE THE PROBLEM:

Screenshot_2018-11-20-12-55-58-580.jpeg

Handle the situation with a peaceful mind.Find the root-cause of the problem.If you are unaware of the CAUSE,you can’t find the SOLUTION.

DO NOT OVER-THINK:

Screenshot_2018-11-20-12-59-25-025.jpeg

Think for the solution rather than overthinking the problem. Overthinking will make the situation even worse.Don’t cry over spilt milk. Think positively to fix it. Get ideas to repair the damage instead of overthinking. Once you start overthinking, you invite more and more bundles of problems towards yourself, making the entire situation very difficult to be dealt with. So avoid overthinking!

THINK POSITIVE AND BE  OPTIMISTIC:

Screenshot_2018-11-20-13-03-24-538.jpeg

“A POSITIVE MIND, WILL GIVE YOU A POSITIVE LIFE.” A mind full of positive thoughts and vibes can always conquer the world.Whereas, a negative mind only causes destruction inside you.It will  limit you to negativities only. And eventually you will give up. Instead be optimistic and say yourself;”HEY LITTLE FIGHTER SOON THINGS WILL BE BRIGHTER.” Have a strong belief that the problem will surely solve.

STOP COMPLAINING AND START    SOLVING:

Screenshot_2018-11-20-13-02-17-573.jpeg

“Complaining about a problem without posing a solution is called WHINING.”Every problem comes with it’s solution, it’s now on us that rather we look for the solution or just keep on complaining about the problem and sticking by the problem only.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS:

Screenshot_2018-11-20-13-06-06-958.jpeg

Discover your gifts, follow them and you will never feel stressed.Think and count your blessings.Don’t compare yourself with others.This will just frustrate you more and more.Think yourself as God’s favourite one and as the most blessed person of the world.Once you start doing this,you will be found stressed very rarely.

MEDITATE:

Screenshot_2018-11-20-11-31-07-002.jpeg

Keep meditation into practice. It effectively helps to reduce stress, anxiety, anger, confusion and depression. It helps control thoughts, relaxes nervous system and provides a sense of calm, peace and balance. It generates motivation, confidence and self-esteem. It controls the heart rate and helps to find inner peace. It increases our focus and concentration power leading to better solutions of our problems.

DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY:

Screen-Shot-2017-05-26-at-12.08.43-PM-768x487.png

Eating chocolates,dancing it out,singing, playing, cracking jokes,going for a walk or shopping, enjoying nature, listening to your favorite music,meditating or praying,spending more time with God or anything which makes you feel good and happy, simply do it!

BREATHE AND HYDRATE:

breath5.jpg

Take deep breaths and stay hydrated.This will improve your inner system and will relax your mind. Studies have shown, dehydration leads to higher cortisol levels,stress hormones. Hence, water reduces stress.

GET A GOOD SLEEP:

1585483-Walter-Reisch-Quote-Tired-minds-don-t-plan-well-Sleep-first-plan

Without a good sleep you will feel more disturbed, irritated and stubborn.”SLEEP IS THE BEST MEDICINE.” Let your brain rest!

SMILE:

smile.jpg

Once you smile,the world smiles with you.Realize that you are far more happier and blessed than the ones badly struggling harder than you.
Keep on smiling and life will be tired of upsetting you.Deal every situation with an inner smile and stop regretting.Life is too short for regrets,sorrows,anxiety and stress.”Life is worth living!”

BE GRATEFUL:

Screenshot_2018-11-20-13-09-53-989.jpeg

There is always something to be grateful for. Keep thanking God for this beautiful life. Be grateful every morning for waking up alive, exploring a new day,with new opportunities! This will make you realize that life is a lot more than stressing out and worrying about temporary problems.Life is too short for stressing out. It’s to enjoy to the fullest!

 

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

post

Let’s begin the journey;

But wait… before we jump into the journey, are you curious to know what’s it about? So, let me tell you about this extraordinary journey!

This journey is about happiness and sadness, calmness and chaos, miracles and blessings, fortunes and misfortunes, darkness and sunshine, opportunities and possibilities, negativities and positivities, failure, rejection and success, fear and courage, fun and excitement, passion and love, lessons and experiences. This is a journey of LIFE! Indeed, it is a complete package of all desires, mysteries, fun and pleasure. It’s full of surprises.

basket-full-red-wrapped-gifts.jpg

This is the most precious treasure! One who values this treasure is ultimately the one who values God, who is grateful for His blessings, and who considers the importance of every breath, everyday waking up alive is the most precious gift for him. When you are very close to God and have so much to do in life that’s when you realize how valuable and beautiful this journey of life is. You start making the most out of it. You start loving, embracing and enjoying every moment with full swing. You start believing more and more in wonders of God. That’s where you find the true meaning of this journey.

Every moment in this journey is breathtaking. Every day is worth living, learning, experiencing and exploring. This is the only journey in which the travellers are unaware of what’s going to happen tomorrow, what’s coming in their ways next. It makes you taste alternations of every situation. It makes you ride in a bus of happiness and opportunities. On the other hand, it makes sure that you also have a ride in the bus of worries, negativities and grief because it wants it’s passengers to come up with the best decision. It fully facilitates them. It makes them experience both situations. Hence levels of curiosity, enthusiasm and worries are high. The travellers are not even aware of their departure time. That’s what makes the journey of life different, unique and special as compared to other journeys. This is undoubtedly the best and the most exciting journey among all.

After this journey, everyone is taken to the same destination; DEATH.

But wait…

When all of us is a part of this captivating journey then why we don’t have time to enjoy it, live it the best way we can, make every moment count and live it in our own ways? Why is it so? Are we blind, deaf or dumb?

Where is LIFE on your priority list? Does it even exist? Think again…do you have time to actually live your LIFE?

You are a MACHINE! You just work, work and work.

Why you don’t have time to cherish this journey?Why is this journey taken for granted?

When was the last time you deeply enjoyed nature? Were you mesmerized by seeing the sun setting and casting, with that purple light on everything?

Did you ate ice cream with your nose dipped in the cream today?

Did you enjoy your mug of hot coffee or tea this morning like it was the last one?

Did you make some crazy and weird faces looking in the mirror and find yourself too pretty and cute?

When was the last time you went on a long drive with your childhood friends, having wine bottles, a basket full of crazy jokes and some weird stuff?

Did you enjoy, dance and feel the rain on your face?

All this sounds so good! But did you even bothered about it? Did you relive any of these moments? Were you thankful for waking up alive today?

Ask all these questions next time you find yourself rushing for work and then landing onto your house bed. Woefully, the day starts and ends like this daily.

You are too busy for all this! You have no time to live this journey:)

Think…

You need to organize and prioritize your list of life, make your journey of life worth living and the best of all journeys . This is offered just once so make every day count. Don’t waste your journey sleeping and laying on the bed till twelve in the morning, missing the sunshine, melodious voice of the birds chirping, and droplets on a leaf.

images (9).jpg

You wasted your half day sleeping and the other half was spent on the gadgets.

This journey will soon end and you will just find yourself sleeping on the bed or having gadgets in hands. Were you born for this? Think, plan and execute!

All the very best my beloved passengers!
