Nurturing Thursday: Move forward

Not every event/moment/person in our life turned up the way we expected but this does not define us. Let us try not have any grudges. In doing so we cure ourselves easily and move forward. Accept it and forget it.

Maturity is learning to walk away from poeple and situations that threatens your peace of mind, self respect, values moral and self worth~Unknown

Nurturing Thursday: Don’t underestimate yourself

I would like to share two quotes for this week’s Nurturing Thursday.

  • Don’t underestimate yourself. You are capable of more than you can ever imagine ~Les Brown
  • Do not underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others. It’s our differences that make us unique ~Unknown

This is so true even I have experienced it just “today”

It is raining continuously for more than 10 hours now and so there was no point in going on a hike today. The only option left was inside training. Due to heavy work load I could not manage to go early. One would expect many health enthusiats at the end of the day as our training facility is avaliable to every staff member in our building.

I stood for a while at the entrance of training hall thinking shall I or shall I not enter. I saw some very serious trainers. These are the people who set every equipment at the maximum cutoff or very end. Leg press 150kg, lat pull 150 kg and so on. I really hestitated to go in.

I knew if I did not go in right now I shall be lazy later. With a big sigh I stepped in. From outside I could see only the unkown strong ones but of course there were some known faces inside. I was able to finish what I decided. I am happy and satisfied at the end for not under estimating myself.

Have a nice weekend friends!

Nurturing Thursday: You as a person

For todays Nurturing Thursday session, I would like to present two quotes. Last couple of days I was thinking on this topic and I wanted to put something related to health. I feel our physical health and mental health both are equally important.

According to Julie Parker

“Place your value as a person above your size, shape or weight. Your dress size is no more important than your shoe size.”

But then Buddha says, “To keep the body in good health is a duty. Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”

Which one do you prefer?

Nurturing Thursday: Happy moments

We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive ~Thich Nhat Hanh

A couple of days ago I stumbled upon my old Cannon PowerShot A510 camera. Which without fail gave me a smile, the one you get when you meet an old friend. I bought batteries and tried my luck. Funny but I actually forgot so many details. I took just a few shots and when I checked them on pc. It was EUREKA!!!

I realized that for me “photography is all about being happy” .

I shall be travelling for next couple of days with good friends visiting some new places. I may or may not get enough time to check my blog.

Wish you all a good weekend!

Nurturing Thursday: Live with passion

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success ~Swami Vivekananda

For last few days I am all caught up in matters which really need proper attention. It’s all work related but after a very long work day is hard to be productive in evenings. If you have heard the word “GDPR”, you know the whole story.

Anyways hope you all are doing good.

Cheers!

Nurturing Thursday: Act not react

“There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them. But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.” ~Paulo Coelho

We all have our problems but why should we spend most of our time in thinking and asking “why me?”. Let’s  stop over thinking and over reacting. Instead how about solving them one by one and spend rest of our time doing what makes us happy.

I shall be away for almost 3 weeks from Saturday. I planned the tour in due haste. According to writer and cartoonist Allen Saunders (first published in Reader’s Digest in January 1957):  “Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans”.  Next two weeks shall be spending  time with my aai (mother). I am sure she is going to love it.  Getting internet connection will be difficult and more over I might not have time for it.

I hope you guys will have good time on wordpress and in your lives. Take care.

PS: Today is Norwegian national day (constitution day). It is celebrated in a very special way. I was in town attending the parades, taking photos and even I got some beautiful spring shots. The above shot is one among many. Sooner or later you will get to see the rest.
