The only work!!

The only work, we came here for doing is the work of listening to the call of our hearts!! 

Our hearts never give up on us!!

They keep calling us, hoping that we’d perhaps listen n follow it’s trail..

Lucky are those who against all ‘sanity’ follow their hearts cuz they are the ones who are finally victorious 🎁

The world is playing safe!! We didn’t come here to play safe..

We came here to be excited with the nervousness of trying something new, that our heart wants to follow..

We came here for the journey .. not the destination 

Coming full circle!!!

Have you ever worked on a project so exciting, that finishing the project in itself would be a celebration for you?

I’m working on a very super exciting project, something I’ve been putting on hold for a really long long time. And as the project fills me with excitement and eagerness and loads of enthusiasm, I just tossed myself a thought..

My first patchwork project! A gift for Ekaansh 🙂

I told myself happily, “when you complete this project, you should buy yourself something special!”  The thought instantly filled me with joy, and as I wondered about what is it that I really wanted to buy myself when my project hits ‘Successfully Done’ – I was blank..

I wasn’t blank with the lack of ideas, but rather I was blank cuz completing this project is going to be a beautiful ‘gift-to-self’ in itself. There was nothing more I expected, other than enjoying this journey and not hurrying myself to the destination.

I really scanned through various gift choices like a vacation, shoes, loads of shopping, enrolling into courses, learning new skills/ getting certified ……

But seriously, nothing …absolutely nothing, matched the joy that I would bring to myself by successfully completing this project.

And it feels so amazing! Feels like I’ve come full circle, from ‘not knowing’ my purpose in life,  to feeling desperate to find it, to attempting to reach it, to making lists of ‘Must have’s’ and finally giving it all up ,not on compulsion but by a deep choice that really tells me who I am!!

I’m still in this journey, and I still do not know who I am!! But this milestone, needs to be celebrated 🙂

And the best part is that the milestone in itself is a celebration & the celebration completely lies in the milestone!!

Offering gratitude, loads n loads of it!

Have you thought about your exciting project???

Have you tasted SUCCESS lately?

What does Success mean to you?

Have you tasted SUCCESS lately?

And if I think, one can answer this question in a simple YES or NO, then, for sure I’m mistaken!!

In this competitive or modern world, we often see everyone running their own race. It’s great to be running!! It’s a beautiful evidence that we exist competitively and are geared up to face the challenges that are being thrown at us in this ever-changing world…

But have we really given it a thought as to where is this eventually going to stop? Is it thoughtless running?  Or a process of reaching some destination?

Is this final destination, any random stop, that our running lands us into, when we finally give up or are we really thinking about where we are heading towards???

So while focusing on this beautiful and powerful question – “Have you tasted Success lately?” , am sure our attention naturally flows to another powerful question which is “What really does Success mean to me?”

Is success linked to having an enormously long, 8, 9 or 10 digit figure as bank balance? Or is success defining for us the way we want to spend our life – in peace, harmony, having a beautiful family, beautiful relationships?

Or does success mean getting that extra footage of being in spotlight and having our name, flashing in newspapers, media and stuff like that? Or may be it is the status and lifestyle of having an envious villa, a royal carriage (read loooooong cars) or simply loads of stuff to brag about?

Is it simply feeling AWESOME about the countless events in our life that moisten our eyes while leaving a broad smile on our faces, or is it the 4 digit figure denoting the number of virtual friends and connections we have? Is success all about dedicating our life to a noble cause close to our hearts?

Or is success simply about setting ourselves free of all the limiting, self-imposed constraints that we have tied ourselves to??

What does Success smell like? What kind of beautiful picture comes to mind while visualizing SUCCESS ? With whom can this success be shared and celebrated with?

Is Success a destination, or a never-ending journey of constant learning and growth?

We often hear people using this 7 letter word containing 2 vowels, 2 ‘C’s and 3 ‘S’s so generally!!! And is it the overrated meaning of this word that is actually making us run away from it?

What really is Success?

For a 1-year-old, his first tiny step to independence? For a 5 or 6-year-old, his first solo journey on his bicycle? For a teenager, his very first share of self earned pocket-money? For a graduate, is it that energetic hat toss?

What else? What does Success mean to you?

Have we got so serious that we have stopped celebrating the success of catching fish in the hope of catching a much bigger one?

It’s never too late in life, till our last breath!!

And we are very much alive and ticking…So now I take the pleasure of asking my friends here, with a hope that they will celebrate their success with me…
