Howdy, My Lovelies!
Saturday, Cold outside and as usual in my blanket so thought of writing something valuable and worth reading for you people. You know what’s the best compliment any writer can ever get? When his/her audience starts connecting with his/her words and that is more of like a winning scene. You people have been very supportive on this journey and I have been thanking you in almost every of my blog post since I genuinely feel the need.
Shireen Manocha, who is the guest blogger for this week is actually someone whom I have admired throughout all my school life. The way she writes, the way she presents her work, her attitude towards living a positive life and the leadership qualities she possesses has what made her stronger and better with time.
Let’s get started!
So, what’s all on your To-do list? Dream big? Work hard? Follow your routines? Dieting? Completion of assignments? Have you ever thought of being kind? Ask this from yourself as you and only you have that answer. I read this somewhere that you can be anything in this world so why not be kind? Why not?
I actually come across so many people in my day to day routine and what I have always found lacking is Compassion. So, first of all, what actually is compassion? Compassion literally means “to suffer together.” It is defined as the feeling that arises when you are confronted with another’s suffering and feel motivated to relieve that suffering. Are you doing it enough for yourself or for somebody?
How can you be a compassionate person?
- Find commonalities with other people
- Don’t put emphasis on money
- Be kind to yourself and others
- Express gratitude
- Teach others and help the needy
- High emotional intelligence
Let’s face it, the world isn’t the beautiful place you imagined, with unicorns and rainbows adorning the sky, or as John Green so aptly put it, “The world isn’t a wish-granting factory.”
People are mean and selfish, and the world at large is conspiring to put you down, and you have to deal with it, alone, for everyone you considered a friend turned their backs when you most needed them.
It’s at times like these, that pin you down by the throat, that you must work on your compassion and visualise a world filled with more love and less chaos – for you can bring this change. Your world has to be you, and this large existence in its entirety, you are your world, and create your own sphere of kindness and happiness for that is what will lead you to success.
A little inner peace, the happiness of doing something nice but also being a little less selfish and realising how the same world put someone else down too – Be their saviour. Be their saviour and they would remember you, and one day, I assure you, you would taste success, for success is fame and dynamics but it’s also passion and stability.
Compassion is another key to be successful in your path irrespective of which road you have chosen. Follow the patronus and you’ll be delighted with the upcoming.
BE SILLY. BE HONEST. BE KIND ALWAYS!
