Take a Stand For Your Decisions

thoughtless thoughts” but I wanted to put some effort in it so that it is worth your time as time is unbelievably precious. Anyways, two days ago I was at a cross-road and had to make a decision. Very confidently I took one. But guess what? It was a wrong decision. I made my family angry but lets not discuss the angry part here. They told me how I could have taken a better decision. But still there was one thing that I really appreciated about myself and it was that I took responsibility for whatever decision I took.

What I mean to convey here is that even if the decision is wrong and is faulty we should stand by it because if we don’t take responsibility for taking it then how can you accept learning a lesson from it? Your mistakes guide you to follow the right path and make better decisions in life.

To conclude I want you to believe in yourself while taking any decision in life no matter how trivial it is and if unfortunately it turns out to be bad don’t deny taking it, learn from it and try to do better next time.

What if the world was a perfect place?

Imagine a world where your life is perfect. You wake up, go to work, your boss does not irritate you, you always meet the deadlines, you get bonuses, your holiday goes as you planned, you retire as you planned. But then what???? Is this it? For me it’s not.

I love the everyday hustle-bustle of life. I love all it’s little imperfections. Because that’s what makes life interesting. When we achieve something after many trials it increases the value of our achievement. This maybe so as I am a process oriented person. I enjoy the journey to achieve my goal.

Wouldn’t it be boring if everyone just accomplished everything easily in their first attempt? I’m not saying this cause I have never failed, I’m saying this cause I have faced failure. I try to keep myself prepared for it. I enjoy my daily struggles. I love my imperfections and other’s as well. I never wished to be perfect (as far as I remember because my memory is not perfect). I just want to be a better version of myself. I love my imperfections, the imperfections of my surroundings, of my society and this world.

When most of us will start embracing these imperfections with all their heart, that’s when the real change begins. Never aim for being perfect, just aim to be a better version of yourself.

Imperfections are beautiful♡

So I read an article on the wabi-sabi Japanese philosophy of life.

Leonard Koren, author of Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, explains, “Wabi-sabi embraces things that are imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete – the antithesis of our classical Western notion of beauty as something perfect, enduring, and monumental.”

Definition of perfection may vary from individual to individual but it always leads to the same end and that is to a permanent feeling of inadequacy. Our desire to be perfect in our different actions. Like use of filters and Photoshop apps, use of earphones or headphones in public places and also saying “I’m fine” all the time.

First step is always acknowledgment. Accept the fact that you are not perfect, no one is and no one can ever be. If you are not looking good in one picture doesn’t mean that you are not good looking. Why do need an evidence for it every time you click a picture? If there’s unpleasant sounds and noises in your surroundings then they are also a part of you, accept it because you are a part of this society don’t ignore or avoid it. Lastly if you are not fine accept that too because everyone has to go through rough patches in life every now and then. It is not a bad thing if you are not fine accept that too.

Second step is to work on that imperfection(s). If you have any bad habit then try to work on it. If you are weak in some work area try to work on it. As for myself I have mobile addiction and in order to work on it I have started to write this blog. Never be ashamed of your imperfections. Embrace them with all your heart.

Just like this Japanese way of beautifying cracked objects. After reading about it I think I am never going to throw a cracked object ever again but keep it.

Wabi-sabi reminds us to slow down and take comfort in the simple natural beauty around us…..It is in these imperfect moments that we find life’s greatest pleasures.

In order to bring this into life just take out your faded clothes and put them on, or glue your favourite mug that you are about to throw as it has cracked or the vase which you bought so wistfully. Imperfect is the perfect way to be. So if you want to be perfect just accept that you are not.

I’m sharing the link to article as well because I’m not that intelligent(and I accept that). So please do read it. Thank you for reading my thoughtless thoughts.

Strength

“In this world, the strong devour the weak.

But who is the strongest?”

Today I read this and can’t get it out of my head. Who gets to decide who is strong and who is not. As for me if someone who is struggling hard to change his life is strong then the person who is willing to do so but cannot due to some limitations is just as strong. Am I wrong to think so?

Also I only post when I am unable to get something out of my mind so don’t have any expectations from me sorry to disappoint.

Pretend friends and True friends

PersonA : ….But since you got angry on my behalf. I feel much better.

PersonB : That’s all it takes? You come cheap. That’s why your relationship with your friends as well….is really weak. You call those fake friends right? Pathetic.

PersonA : (Fake friends.) It might look pathetic to you. But they are vital to me.

PersonB : Huh? It’s not like I care whatever makes you happy. Its none of my business anyway.

I cannot disagree with this cause I cannot justify myself. But if I agree with it then it will mean that I too have fake friends. I have always longed for that one friend to come. Does anyone else feel the same?
