In today’s lives, where we’ve all got immense work load and a list of tasks hanging around for the day, it’s difficult to commit for our own betterment. Difficult to take even the smallest steps in the direction of our own growth. And thus, in such times, it becomes nearly impossible to stick to our own commitments.
To be dedicated enough even after the exuberance we committed for a goal in has left us, is a tough task. And taking the decision to be dedicated is itself a battle. But we all know and we all understand that commitment is really important not just as the source of guarantee for others but for ourselves too. Because either a task is done or not done there is no in-between and we all clearly understand that. Thus, it becomes a great deal when it’s said and done or done and called out for.
It feels such a joy for me when I can proudly showcase my work and have the gratitude for having done it within time. It’s not only joyous, I get a great amount of time for myself later too, to do more things that make me happy and make me successful at the end of the day. It’s definitely a proud moment and then one can monkey around the way one likes too. 😛
Be committed and make sure you’re having fun later on! 🙂
Have you ever noticed your keyboard well enough except for purposes like learning to type or to clean it or to look for a specific key? No, right? At least I didn’t, I remember I’ve always used keyboards just to type or operate the computer and nothing else.
For, a person like me who works all day long on the computer that’s quite a normal thing to do. But what’s quite staggering is, we never tend to learn something valuable from our keyboard. I know, what you’re thinking. Typing is quite a valuable skill. Yes, I agree with that. But, let’s go deep into what I mean by something valuable here.
A few days ago, during an Exam, I was asked to find something artistic, in a keyboard. The question required us to list down the important features of a keyboard and why one found them so necessary. To list all those attributes of a keyboard that made it user-friendly. Like every other person, I jotted the important features, the design characters of the keys, the feel of it and what not. But what I could have never imagined was the lessons a keyboard could teach every person who knew how to use it.
The very first key of a keyboard, asks a person to stop being an ESCAPist, because right after that there is a world full of chances to take. Moving on, the largest key defines how we need a definite SPACE and how we have to provide it. Then there are these two twin or repetitive important keys that not tell us but also remind us how ENTERing different places is important. Coming next in queue, the ALT twin keys keep making us understand the importance of alternatives and choices in our lives. The CTRL twins tell us that too much control never works. The CAPS LOCK and the NUMBER LOCK make us believe that nothing in the world can take an individual’s value away. The BACKSPACE reminds us almost each minute, that we can always learn from our mistakes. The SHIFT key teaches us how one can lift other people in life. And the TAB key keeps telling us how to jump from one position to the other efficiently.
There’s so much more a keyboard teaches us in different ways. The INSERT, the DELETE, the HOME key and the END one too. Let’s START to look differently and be someone new. 🙂
For all those readers who are a nineties born or earlier, would remember those days that were a little distant from technology. I remember going to the parks to play. Reading more and more of books all the time, everyday. I can’t forget how mom scolded me and my siblings from watching television for more than an hour. I remember how we all sat together to sing or play and at times dance our troubles away.
I don’t see any of that happening today. We’re unfit and unclear, frustrated all day. We all sit with mobile phones closer than the people are. We are socially active but usually lifeless and slothful by far. I can’t remember when I left the book and took a phone in my hand. But I wish I can do vice versa soon and get new books back to my hand.
I wish to get to my feet and dance my worries out. I wish to play a game of chess with my dad and to laugh out. I wish to go jog not because it’s a duty but fun to jog and laugh around. I wish to sing more than to listen to my favorite music tracks which were earplugs bound. I wish to help mom cook desserts again. I wish to find my old friends, again. I wish to leave the techy games behind. I wish to pick up my pen leaving the keys far behind.
I know it’s different world today but it sure can be balanced too. Let’s try to take a walk into a life afar from technology too. 🙂
Most of my life, I’ve been afraid of myself. Yes, if there’s a phobia that describes “self-fear”, I definitely have had it for most of my age. I’m not scared of myself, I’m scared of how wrong I can be, how much people can hate me, how hard I can fall or how bad I can fail. The fear of not being “good enough” has always kept me behind closed doors. Doors that always had an opportunity knocking on them. But I always felt that those opportunities weren’t meant for me.
Soon the time passed and with it the opportunities too. Now the fear of being behind the closed doors crept in so bad that stepping outside seemed like a much better path. A path that was unseen, unknown and definitely untraveled before. I knew I was alone here, but at some point isn’t everybody alone?
I took a few small steps thinking I’d reach the destination. Unknown of this world outside my door, I tripped hard and hurt myself too but I got up since this was the only way remaining right? Another few steps got me to diversions in the path I chose, since the destination was far, I thought to befriend my journey and trusted myself and my instinct. Another few steps brought me to a sea where I saw my reflection which was unclear but this time it looked fearless, brave and proud. The confidence to move further came in diminishing the fear that had taken place in me for so many years.
I took a few more steps and understood that I had come into the wrong direction. So what would I do now? I corrected my mistakes and went further. I won’t say that I’ve reached my destination but this journey has taught me a lot. From being afraid to do something because I could be wrong, to do something because I could be right too. This path of learning has sure been longer than it should have been but I’ve learned to think about the rights of the left way.
So now it doesn’t matter what can go wrong, because I can make it right. What matters is what can go right. 🙂
Away from all the stereotyping, discrimination, equality, fundamental rights and other important issues. Let’s just talk about us. The better halves of the world I mean. Just kidding! 😛
This is not just for men to read. Remember lying on mom’s lap for even a few seconds and how her hands can’t resist playing with your hair and skin? The way this alluring darling can’t help but care for us? She’s so affectionate that I sometimes start to think how wonderful a wife dad’s got. She’s so caring that I wonder if I’ll ever be able to become a mom like her.
Coming to wives or women as partners, especially this era when she’s competitive but in such beautiful ways that you tend to love her more, don’t you? I won’t say she gives up on a lot, but she does think mostly just about you. You’re her one and only and she loves you in the most deepest ways.
And do you remember that little girl who had a crush on you ever since you were born. Whether girls or boys, everyone loves sisters. They’re so irritating and annoying that you can’t help but noticing them being in your lives. But at the same time, you got any difficulty little or elder one, it’ll soon be hers. Hell yeah!
We can’t forget daughters today they’re a father’s piece of heart and a mother’s little part itself. No matter how old they get they’ll always be young for mom and dad. These daughters make the most difference actually by changing on each step of their lives. As young riling creatures to adult caring moms. I can’t thank them enough for being themselves.
These women might not be the best but they’re mostly a great deal to the world. They might not be equal or stronger but they’re quite everything anyone would want in their lives. I know I’ve missed quite many of them but let’s love them and respect them.
Happy Women’s Day to all the beautiful women of the whole wide world! We love you Ladies! 🙂
Honestly, my plate is too full these days to have the dessert of writing this blog. While all the work is dishes on my plate, writing here is such a peaceful big bowl of Belgian ice cream. But the scenario here is that I’m not quite able to complete my plate to reach to my bowl of ice cream. So what’s the plan? What will make me finish my plate and reach my big delicious bowl?
Well, the goal is quite simple, earlier what I used to do was plan my work schedule according to the difficulty attached to each task. Which soon became my habit. I would do all the difficult tasks at the beginning and the simpler ones at the end. But that doesn’t happen with food right? We have the least filling course first to have a four course meal. Thus, I thought of completing the easier starters first to get to the end of my meal, finish my plate and also be able to eat my dessert.
I guess it quite helped me and if your plate is too full too, try the starters first. 😉
I truly appreciate how life miraculously makes us balance to it’s absolute nature. Even though it’s not quite easy to give something valuable for what you want or need, it’s definitely the perfect way to understand that nothing in the world comes for free. Until and unless the correct value of anything is acknowledged, we tend to take it for granted.
I quite enjoy the pleasure of giving but at times it’s quite difficult to understand if you’re paying the right price or if you’re getting enough in return for your payment.
With time, effort and money being the foremost criterias of my life, at times I wonder if I’m really effective and efficient as much as necessary. I’m generally afraid of losing focus and thus important time of my life to correct my direction. Giving or taking are just like two sides of a coin, a coin wouldn’t go without them. But what we need to understand is that, how much we give for it, how long we take to get a valuable return and lastly if we’ve earned it. 🙂
