A Quote for life!

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for Insects

Carry a calm head on your shoulders

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn't more complicated than that. It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it. ~ Sylvia Boorstein

It happens in time when you are very stressed out. There are lots of things to do and you do not know where to start. There are lots of decisions to take, and you do not know which one to make. There are lots of issues around you and you have no idea what can resolve those. Those are the times when we feel most stressed and do things that mostly sound weird, seem bizarre and are actually the creepiest ones!

What to do when you find yourself in such a situation?

Well, I am not sure myself and I am not the person (as of now) who can tell that too. But the quote above is nice and has attracted me to end up writing this.

They say, time will let you know. Yes, it will! We need to look at things that are our control and do what we can do, rather than speculating about things that are done by someone else. We have no control over that – why should we waste our energy thinking about what that ‘someone else’ can and would do, and get stressed? Let time tell.

Let us take it as it comes – this moment, this smallest unit of time is there to be lived. It may be unpleasant and unwelcomed one, but live it. Face it and learn from it, for this is all that you can do.

Global warming? I can’t help it much, other than planting trees in my back yard. Do that part, which is under your control. If it is needed to blast a nuclear bomb in some weird place of the desert to reverse global warming, certainly you yourself cannot help it. So, plant a tree; grow a herb, switch off your refrigerator when not in use and turn of the engine when you are stuck in the red light. And? And enjoy that moment, live it and learn from it.

Do not reject the moment you are dumped into. You would not have controlled it anyways. It had to come and it had – you just move on! Take whatever you would love to take from it – at least a learning that would make you know what to do the next time you experience the same situation.

Take a deep breath. Let time come to you with news, with ideas and with resolution. Do your bit religiously and with dedication. Leave all else to time and just wait and watch. I am sure there are more interesting, evolving and astounding things that are coming to you, brought to you exclusively by TIME!

Chill out and go fishing. Cheers!
