If you love a flower, don't pick it up.Because if you pick it up it dies and itceases to be what you love. So if youlove a flower, let it be.
If your head is in the clouds, let yourfeet be in the dirt. It's okay to feelyour laughter and to also feel yourhurt.If they tell you to dreamsmaller, just hold on a little more,while still being okay with notknowning what's in store.It's in the grit and grace you will start to findyour place. Under skies blue and grey.You are still on your way.
You're not behind in life. There's
no timetable that we all must
follow. It's made up. 7 billion
people can't do everything in the
same order. What's early? What's
late? Compared to who? Don't
beat yourself up for where you
It's YOUR schedule and
everything is right on time.
The weekends are for rest & repair; it brings in the much deserved stop from the week. Stories are integral part of our human evolution. The way I always see, stories do provide the much needed rejunenation for the mind over the weekend.
In fact, stories are used to communicate complex concepts in bare bone languages; be it in science, religion or spirituality.
Let me share some stories today, and my thoughts on them.
Two stories to begin with -
Nokia refused Android
Yahoo refused Google
Here are my thoughts -
How about two more stories?
Facebook takes over Whatsapp and Instagram
Flipkart takes over Myntra & Flipkart owned Myntra takes over Jabong
And my thoughts on these two.
Let's go one more time. Two more stories.
Colonel Sanders founded KFC at the age of 65.
Jack Ma, who coudnt get job in KFC, founded Ali Baba.
So what did I learn from these two?
How about we do this one last time!
Lamborghini was founded as result of revenge of a tractor owner who was insulted by Enzy Ferrari, the founder of Ferrari.
And what did I pick up from this one.
I am sure we all have heard these famous stories many times; I decided to put them on a single post.
Which one is your favourite one?
It's funny how we
outgrow what we once
thought we couldn't live without,
and then we fall in love with what
we didn't even know we wanted.
Life keeps leading us
on journeys we would
never go on if it were up to us.
Don't be afraid. Have faith. Find the lessons.
In this life you will have moments that leave you speechless.
You will look to the one you love and wonder, "How on earth did you get to live this life?"
You will also have nights that leave you restless and wondering, "How on Earth will I make through this?"
And this is also true; you will have a billion moments in between.
You will weave in and out of beginnings and endings and somehow, through it all, you will learn to exhale and inhale. Over and over.
You will encounter grace in open spaces. You will find wisdom in unexpected places. You will be tender and strong and you will see beautiful things flourish. Even though it took so long.
You will heal on the journey. You will realize at every point on the path, you were learning.
Gratitude found you. Sunlight found you too, and in the end after everything, you grew how you meant to be!
Calm your mind down. You're on no one's journey but your own. pace yourself and live your life the way you want to. Don't let someone else's idea of success make you feel like you've chosen the wrong path.
Your journey may look different to everyone else's, but it's yours.
