“Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music-the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.”
— Henry Miller
Life is more than ‘You.’ Life is not always about ‘You.’ It’s bigger and beautiful. You can see for yourself when you step out of the world of yours.
Develop an interest besides your life and its commitments.
Adventures and travels, peoples, and places have always been an exciting part of life on earth. Strangers could turn out to be the most interesting people you have met so far. Visiting some places and reading some books could turn out to be a game-changer in your life. A random person could teach you a life lesson that could impact till the end.
Get out and experience life’s beautiful things than your everyday routines.
When you step outside the circle of your life, you can experience truly beautiful things and wonderful souls in life. Once in a while, step out. Look at the world as it is. Embrace life.
Despite the good and bad, life is still happening around us. The life is filled with some wonderful souls who keep the earth up and running.
We all get caught up in life with our commitments and to-do lists. What we forget and don’t see is that there’s a beautiful part of life on earth that is running quietly.
Explore life outside your circle.
Life is filled with extraordinary souls, magnificent places, wonderful books and beautiful things.
Forget yourself and see this life happening on earth.
“The chances you take, the people you meet, the people you love, the faith that you have. That’s what’s going to define you.”
- Denzel Washington
I am the result of my faith, my decisions, the chances I took, and people that I have in life.
The more good decisions I make and the more positive people I have, the happier my life becomes.
If I don’t have the decent fundamentals to become a good human being, then what am I? Let us all ask this question to ourselves once in a while and get back on track.
Social status, the power, the money, and the Ivy League education is not what defines anyone. If that is what matters to you, think again. External factors like them can only contribute to a bare-minim percentage of your life.
What’s important is how you are on the inside.
What happens when I lost all of it or some of it? Will people move away? Genuine people will not! Others will definitely go away when they no longer benefit from your money and everything else.
Some People stay with you no matter what happens. It’s because there is some fundamental good in you that is making them stay amidst all your life’s troubles.
Faith that I have clearly defines me. People who have faith towards humanity, hope, courage, confidence, and goodwill will always cherish the surrounding life.
Faith in good things will make the life we live beautiful and meaningful.
Once again, remember. External factors are not going to define who you are.
Good faith, positive decisions, and good people that I have earned in life defines me the most.
“In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.”
- Flora Edwards
Whatever we give in this world, it comes back. It comes back ten folds. Just do a random act of kindness. Even a little is fine. It will come back to you in many folds at some point in life. Have you wondered how sometimes you get help from the least expected source? Even a stranger would be of help when you need desperate help.
By helping others, you are helping yourself. You are helping yourself in becoming a better person. By helping and giving others, you give your soul the happiness it wants. When you least expect, the good deeds you did will wait at your doorstep to pay you back. It’s another way of helping yourself too, right?
Don’t extend your help on purpose or expect a return. Life blooms when you do positive things to people for no-benefits in return.
It’s okay to help others within your limits. You don’t have to go so far. There’s nothing to prove or nothing to compare when it comes to helping people. Do what you can. Even little help is help. A little money is a Money. A small act of kindness is Kindness.
The goodness that you give comes back to you. This is a true-life circle and an unwritten law of the universe.
Let’s be ‘Giving’ with what we can.
Life on earth is surviving and sustaining with the help of people who ‘Give’ and take nothing or expect nothing in return.
