Shaping my Life!

Shape up my life!

 

 

Looking back just about the starting of this year I feel my life felt and looked so different. It looks and feels like a transformation. To people who see me it may look like it was a very difficult path, I semi- agree and semi-disagree. Life is as you choose it to be. It’s the battle of your mind over desire. A lifestyle change isn’t just you changing the way you eat or exercise, it is also how you psychologically think every step of the way; one needs to plan their life a little in advance to see the image they picture themselves as in front of the mirror.

I still somehow feel amazed at where I have come in my health and fitness goals and STILL feel it’s JUST the beginning, there is so much more to master especially mind over matter.  Earlier I knew I had to stop myself from eating to reduce, now that I have come to a level I feel I can take a miniscule amount of liberty, but even  then I  feel more nervous than what I used to feel earlier!  I have and am learning to deal with this level of anxiety.

For most people looking at food and watching food shows or pictures will tempt them into eating the food they are craving right away, and I don’t blame them because I used to feel the same some months back but after the healthy substitutes and a treat once in a while in my diet that have been introduced I enjoy watching food shows and INFACT often drool over Instagram snaps of cupcakes and cakes mostly. Suddenly my sweet tooth has grown and I feel the need to eat a bit of sweets, which earlier wasn’t such a biggie because I would eat anything and everything anyhow.

The feeling of happiness when people compliment me  and say you’ve lost a lot of weight is quite overwhelming at times but I have learnt to accept it with a simple thank you and not let it go to my head. Also the trick is to listen and accept all compliments BUT in the end know what your true path to salvation is.

I feel it’s all a psychological circus and you have to deal with a lot of stuff that goes on in your own mind and heart. I for one rely more on my gut instincts, luckily they haven’t really betrayed my trust as such. Looking at fitness inspirational snaps and videos also gives me the boost I feel is needed to keep you going. Anything that helps you set your mind and makes you do whatever it takes to stay focused.

You need trust and luck in the end also, like you need to be lucky enough to find a proper trainer and nutritionist to help you reach your goals but in the end it’s the trust you put in them that matters. It is a team effort. Even if you decide to make the change yourself which is a little difficult but not impossible you need to read and help yourself. Nowadays everything is available to us via the internet BUT the downside is that there is just TOO much information floating and too many people who have their own ideas about everything. So, NOT only for fitness and health or your eating habits, you have to realize that we need to listen and hear everything BUT in the end do what YOU think is best! ONLY you can help and mould yourself into the person you desire to be. Be your own Picasso, be the writer of your own story, don’t play only by the rules set by other people, make your own rules, live life the way it was meant to be lived, happy and excited; excitement to get up each day and face the world with enthusiasm to make sure this day is going to be one step towards a better life that you envision for yourself. I know that I do that but also take it one baby step at a time.

Doubts in our mind about us can be our worst enemy; I have been fighting this battle with them and hope to overcome it soon. Doubts can eat away at one’s confidence wardrobe and make you feel hollow. I intend to make sure that I get rid of all doubts, go past the potholes of low confidence levels and ride on a much smoother road to success in life. I have always had it in me to live and let live and I intend to do that for the rest of my earthly being. Cheers and always remember stay positive and shape up your life in your own style. Keep smiling and take care! Peace out.

Note to Self!

Hey you! Looks and feels like everything is going as it should, then why do I feel a slight emptiness inside of me? Why do I have to keep listening to other people tell me what is and what isn’t right for me? And top it all why does it bother me when I always say I don’t care what others have to say about my life?

On the much brighter side in life I have come to the realization (which was pretty obvious, but I was oblivious to the fact), that health is the A-all in life, If you are fit everything rolls to the good side of the hill for you otherwise it’s all downhill for you my friend.

Now to come to the point which has been scratching a side of my brain; Money! Why is money so important for us in life? I am not saying it isn’t for me, because then I would sound very superficial; but I feel it’s not something by which you choose someone to be in your life or not. Like for example, if the person makes more money than you, then in my case anyone would make more money than me because I don’t earn anything. I only earn in happiness, peace of mind, positivity, health, and all kinds of philosophical wealth, but for me this is my wealth.

Thanks to the eternal source of power over us we call God, and my family; I have enough to keep me going for a lifetime. I don’t need a Man to take care of me monetarily, what I do need is to find someone who will share my life with me and we each take care of one another, in sickness and in good health, in richness and poverty & in good or bad fortune. Is it a lot I am asking for? Or am I in a fantasy world as I am seldom told.

I feel such an individual exists, and it will take some more perseverance and patience on my part to wait for him. I don’t want him to be perfect, as he will be perfect for me; I will love him with all his good and bad traits and hopefully he shall do the same for me because no person is perfect. Perfection is a farce, it’s a mirage, it’s just something we all want to achieve but it’s something we all feel isn’t enough even if we reach its boundary!

I live each day as it comes; enjoy every bit of fortune that comes my way! I count my blessings and am thankful, I always see it’s always better to see the glass half full, that way if I am thirsty I get to take a few sips and be grateful that what I believed was true!

I am happy and at the time and place I am meant to be! I believe in myself and I shall shake all the doubts that circle me!

Can you think for yourself?!

Has it ever occurred to you that we live in a world where  people have a certain set rules for life? Where people have more time to think of what others are doing with their lives, who they are hanging out with and so on & so forth? Gossiping is something every individual does, even if many claim they don’t! But talking about people and spoiling their lives because of that is a crime, it’s a social evil!

I for one don’t believe in life having set rules…Hate is a strong word but I must absolutely use it here! I don’t like being judged, to judge people and above all of it hate judging myself. Society as a whole has a dirty habit of making up rules and we have to adhere accordingly.

I ask all of you, who made these rules? Did we have a list of them from the time we realize we had a society? How come every culture has a different set of them then?  Why can’t each of us have a right to know and learn from our mistakes and then comprehend what kind of life we chose to live?!

It petty to assume that two individuals who are friends from different sexes can’t be just friends;  I agree that there will be a certain amount of attraction therefore the two are friends, same goes  for two women or two men. Deny it all you want but that is a truth, attraction is what brings everyone together; be it of any kind. Love, hate, friendship are all forms of attractions. You are even attracted to hate people. It sounds nuts but it’s true. You think of the person you dislike or hate as much as the people you love or are friends with! People who don’t interest you will never occupy any part of your brain or your thought process!

In this day and date we all want change but IF we don’t change the way we think how you do expect to change anything?!

Please learn to live and let live. Don’t rely on hearsay or what you see… Trust only what you come across first hand and that to if you have any doubts and the person concerned is close to you, then clear it out!

Always best not to presume, assume or doubt anything!  Life is too short for such things… Misunderstanding and false talk can spoil someone else’s life and make it a living hell!

People who go by what others say don’t have a mind of their own and can easily be misled into thinking the worst possible scenarios in life. Be positive and let others live life positively as well!

 

 

 

 

Hello Life or Hell- Oh life…the choice is yours!

Hey there, sometimes in life when lots of things happen to you at once, and then suddenly you go into a period of time when everything seems to be moving smoothly but slowly, that moment you feel why life has suddenly lost its zing. We don’t understand that this is the calm we had been praying for when life was throwing stones our way or we were too busy getting our lives into order.

We always want to be on the other side of the fence. We are in so much hurry to know what is next, in the bargain we forget to enjoy life in the present. I need to remind myself just that, and I have decided that I am going to enjoy the calm just as much as I enjoy the chaos.

There are days when I am thinking something ordinary and suddenly out of the blue I remember that this life could end at any given time. Instances come into our lives of hearing of people’s lives ending with the weirdest diseases or accidents. I shudder at such information each time I come across it. I thank God always for the luck and blessings that are bestowed upon me, my family and friends.

I don’t mind getting stuck with problems that have solutions; it’s the one’s that can’t be solved that leave me flabbergasted. Life is too short to keep getting scared or nervous about when it would come to an end, the inevitable will happen when it is meant to happen, until then give life a run for its money.

Live life according to your own terms, I feel everyone can do that but within their own limitations because not everyone is as lucky as I am in life and like I always do and say, I am VERY grateful for everything in life.

In life you want to save the people you love but mostly you can’t do that, they need to save themselves, cause that is something only they can do! We have to keep fighting the battle of saving ourselves in this life. We come across so much negativity, that it drains me as every corner I encounter it; but then I stop at the nearest positivity counter and get myself a refill of the positivity serum which keeps me going a few more rounds with a renewed spurt of energy.

Life needs to be taken as it comes and cherish every bit of it. One never knows what is to happen next and that in itself is what makes life interesting!

Keep Calm…Breathe & Relax!

Slide31

Heylo,

I have been told innumerable times that I have a very cushiony life and what worries would I have! But people don’t realise that it is human nature to worry…If we have nothing to worry about we think up worries, this does not mean that a person with a much easier life than others doesn’t have a care in the world. There are many things that can be on our minds, everything matters when we say nothing is the matter. Women think more than Men and that is one of our plus points to multitask and it can also be our breakdown point as we can’t handle everything at the same time always.

I personally have a habit of thinking too much. I feel even in my sleep I dream more cause my brain is constantly thinking. I can’t say how much of that thinking is useful but sometimes it’s for the better and sometimes for the worst. I couldn’t believe myself when I started stressing over the fact that I had to meditate and calm myself, in return I realised I have a habit of sticking to schedule and sometimes that in itself stresses me more.

I live my life in phases as I have mentioned earlier, I always crave change, I think monotony bores me…I constantly need a little drama in my life. I am seeking balance in life which I am unable to obtain…Still I am not going to give up, this might be a lifelong struggle and I intend to fight all these mini to magnanimous battles in life with a simple Breathe in and out and relax attitude. I suggest you do the same…Keep Calm Breathe & Relax! :)

Cheers! Until next time… :)

Online shopping can be pretty addictive…What do you think?!

Heylo, It’s time I wrote again and this time I have realized that Image online shopping can be very addictive but it’s the most convenient way in this day and date. I have been shopping online since more than a few years now. It’s very easily accessible but I really do tend to control my hand at just spending for the sake of entertainment,even though occasionally I do end up buying a few things that I feel are add ons. Anyhow the whole idea of writing this post is that I feel shopping of any kind can be therapeutic but at the same time can burn holes into our virtual pockets. So ladies and gentlemen, yes!, even gentlemen shop more online than in person, please be careful everytime you try to swipe that card through that virtual slot, you may end up with surprises but at times you may end up with it hurting in the most known and most despised hurtful areas.

Nowadays life can become so easy, most things are at the end of a click away, matter of fact, we are too lazy to get out of our homes when we’re not in dire need of a particular item and we go online, search, select and pick it up. With shopping becoming accessible over smartphone applications now, shopping has become a treat to go!

I love shopping online for things I know my size and preference or to things I feel look quite what they are in the pictures presented by the companies.

If you can trust your gut and do what what your heart edges you to, take small risks in life, then shopping online is the key thing for you.

Take care and Have a blast shopping from the convenience of your homes,offices or on the walkabout!

Cheers for now, until I am yet again reminded to pen down my thoughts!

 

So…do you think you think too much?!

Hey there, it seems it’s time for me to write again and that’s good because now I truly do need reminders to make me write what goes on in my head.
I have been repeatedly told that I have a habit of overthinking things and I think it is true. But this is a trait that I learnt from my family, we have a habit to plan things and that in itself keeps us in the thoughts that are not needed.

Sometimes thinking is good for us but when we have nothing better to keep ourselves occupied we keep thinking a lot of scenarios that wouldn’t have entered our thought stream otherwise. I dream mostly every night and that in itself proves to me that my mind doesn’t want to be vacant even when my body is resting.
Have been trying to control my thoughts by either writing them down, pen them here or most recent development trying to somewhat meditate. I can’t say it’s helping me but it’s making me think slower at least.
I’m a person with a positive attitude in Life but even then at times my mind plays tricks with me which brings my self confidence down. I need to strive everyday to build up my self esteem and confidence, motivate myself for a better today and a much better tomorrow.
Thoughts are our weapons to use at our own discretion but if not used properly can be the most devilish instruments yielded.

Think wisely and positively. This doesn’t mean we stop our thoughts just need to monitor them and help them bring out the best in us, each
moment to each lifetime!
Stay happy and healthy! Take care…

Fear of the unknown but training for life!

1947724_10153905046430092_1019876461_nIt’s 3 in the morning and I have been awake since 2 after falling off to bed in deep slumber from 11 pm. My mind is in a state of utter confusion as of now, as my heart is at most times. It wants to sleep but it’s kind of fresh from the good 3 hour sleep it has captured. Life is a little confusing at times but I have come to the realization that if it wasn’t so we’d find it very dull and boring. I know for a fact that when my life is going as smooth as silk, I try to find things to make it a little difficult for my own sake.

Past two months have been quite a trip. I have finally started on a lifestyle change journey of my life and I intend to stick to it for LIFE! With a few changes in me I feel a teensy bit confident to take on life with an attitude I really lacked earlier. We learn a lot of things each day and that is what builds up our life’s timeline.

These past few days have gone by quite quickly and also I felt were quite tiring at the same time BUT I enjoyed myself thoroughly because I reconnected with one of my best friends after ages and I really miss her presence on a day-to-day basis ; but we’re always in touch and I feel the distance keeps us grounded and makes it better for us to connect better when we meet.  I love all my girlies!

Also in life I am coming across lots of things & thoughts to dwell upon and I keep wondering what am I to do. I am going with the flow and what my gut instincts are telling me to do but someone my mind always plays tricks and tries to confuse me if I am doing the right thing or not. I hate it when I judge myself more so!  I do not like it one bit! Anyhow, life is such!

Life is making changes as I write this post and I keep wondering what is in store for me but I also think that’s the beauty of it all, as much as I am scared or anxious of the unknown, I truly enjoy the surprises life throws my way!  So here’s to a life of very many surprises and cheers to whatever is going to come my way!

So at this early but late time of the night or early morning with some amount of closure after I have put all these thoughts on digital paper, I feel a little lighter and maybe I can take on afresh from now on with a better n confident attitude.

When God shuts a door, he always opens a window!

There are times in our lives that we wish we never existed because of the amount of pressure that builds up inside us is tremendously empowering. We need to vent this frustration time and again to make ourselves feel lighter and ready for the next time span of mental battles. Life is best when it is unpredictable because it does not give us the time to react at times. If we knew what is to happen we’d either be freaking out or go into a panic attack mode. Each problem however minuscule or gigantic makes us stronger for the next one to come towards us like a meteorite heading into the earth’s hemisphere.

There are somethings one needs to convey in those many words to the people they love, however much those words might hurt the others. We can’t keep everything buried way deep inside us. If we try to make everyone happy around us, we will be the only ones left unhappy. That is the A rule of life. Everyone cannot be happy at the same time, because everyone’s definition of happiness defers. 

Anyhow that is life. So as I am and always choose to be philosophical to the core, these past days I have not been my usual happy and at peace with myself self. I have bitten off many heads and slaps many hands with my sharp words. NOT proud of it but I guess It had to happen! I was boiling inside and the vent had to be opened to let the steam out. Now that  the steam is out I am feeling more or less at a peace with myself, at least until I boil to the brim again. 

As I always believe reason behind everything, time and place for everything, I also believe that when God shuts a door in our lives, he most definitely leaves a small area of a window open for us to explore or breathe easy. 

Taking each day as it comes as usual, though these days I have a better lifestyle choice and I plan to stick by it life long. 

Wish me luck in my Fitness endevour and also for the journey I call life where I seek utmost peace and my share of happiness I know I truly deserve! 

Take care and Cheers to Good health!
