Magical People Who Made A Difference

The difference between just living it all in one's own head
and living in the world outside is the people we meet and interact with.
What is experienced alone becomes a sharing experience which changes the essence of said experience.
If it were not for the people around us, I feel that one emotion and the other would not be much different.
Even though the idea of oneself that every one holds is solely about them, it would not and cannot be what it is were it not for other people.
And while we get to choose what we want to be, the change is effected by other people's actions and interactions with us.
Today's practice requires me to thank any three people who have changed the direction my life took and those who left a huge impression in my life. I got this list of 'people' and I am going to thank..lets see..four of them!
Dear Santa from "The Rise of the Guardians",

                 Thank you so much for changing the direction of my life. I love it where I am right now and it is all because of one thing you said in the movie,
" I have big eyes; Eyes that see the wonder in everything!"
The moment I heard those words, it struck a chord within me. I wanted to be like that with all my heart and now I am like that( annoyingly so according to my family and friends ).

So, Thank You so much for showing me the way to an awesome sauce magical life!


Dear Master Oogway from "Kungfu Panda",



Thank you for your words that has gotten me past fires and potholes in life that eventually lead to paradises that could not have been had it not been for those very fires that had me on my knees.
Yeah, I've heard it , like a hundred times before. But it never meant anything to me, you know? But when I heard it from you, it made me see the sense in all those seemingly 'wrong' places I had been.
Thank you for giving me the gift of hope!
And this quote, amazingly simple yet the reason for all our sufferings!
Thank you for making my life blissful , with as little attachments as possible!


Dear Master Shifu from 'Kungfu Panda",
Thank you your words of wisdom to Po that we all got to listen in on, as well.
"Time is an illusion. There is only the NOW".
Changed my life irreparably is what it did! Nothing else, no other stimulants, people or words brought me into focus, latched on my attention to the present and made me shine and burn brighter than I ever did like your words did! Thank you for giving me the gift of Inner Peace.
Dear Mike Dooley,
Thank you so much for your daily emails and all your lovely books that has me on my feet, living like there is no tomorrow!
You made me braver than I have ever been in all my life!
I am striding forwards with so much confidence and I feel unstoppable!
I am taking risks but there is no undercurrent of fear to any of my actions!
I am doing more instead of just thinking about it! I am a ball of fire is what I am now and it is all because of your ideas and thoughts on life!
You made me realise what it means to be a "Life Adventurer"! Scratch that. You told me that I am a Life Adventurer and that we all are.
You made me excited about everything, death even! I am full of passion and I love life! Thank you so much for being' the Universe ' for  so many of us all over the world!


Day 12:
I am grateful for shops, shops and more shops everywhere selling awesome stuff I don't even realise I need until I see it stocked so beautifully on the shelves!


I am grateful for my dress billowing around me like an umbrella when I twirl because it makes me feel magical!

I am grateful for the smell of baking bread and cake because it is the most heavenly smell that has and will ever exist in time and space for all of eternity and it is just so fulfilling.


I am grateful for Mars Bars because has there been any other miracle that is this perfect blend of sweet, chocolatey gooey toffee awesomeness?



I am grateful for my dad's thoughts, realizations , his retrospective and explorative mind because it is so enriching to get even the smallest dose of his world!

I am grateful for this quote I came across recently that so perfectly put things in perspective for me and liberated me when I most needed it!
I am grateful that I have only one younger sister because things are so easy to handle and it is pretty easy to hide from one sister than say, a dozen!
I am grateful for having found the perfect friend after wishing and hoping all these years because she is so amazingly right for me!



I am grateful for the rush, the fire and the racing heart rate when I dance like there is nothing else in the world for me because I feel like everything makes sense, I am where I should be and it is all perfect during these times!
I am grateful for the loads of sauces and veggies and gelatin and loads more we got on our shopping trip because it means more potential ingredients for my antics in the kitchen!

Ventures into Love - Day 12

Here’s how life is supposed to work; how we are taught that the world works, how we are supposed to integrate into the mayhem: Dream big. Work for it. Be bold. Go for it NOW. Have a vision. Break the steps down into bite sized pieces and keep making progress every single day. I am actually feeling slightly breathless, just typing those words. The thing is, this kind of pushing and prodding, this complete reliance over one's willpower that stems from the brain and it’s storehouse of experiences filtered through beliefs that alter the experience to a nutshell of what really is, is frankly exhausting. Sure, when we face a particularly trying situation or we are subject to an enrapturing inspiring speech, we feel charged up and energetic. We feel like we have so much to offer, so much that we can do, so much energy to run all the way to the top, that we enthusiastically take steps, turn over new stones, meet people, network and feel euphoric. For some time, that is. Eventu

Ventures Into Love: Day 8

Sometimes, our traps are so simple. The keys to these traps can be right there and yet, we fail to see them. Until we do. And realise that there was no need for repairs from the outside. It was us the whole damn time.  For me, the last practice( playing the detective) was mind boggling because I am now discovering so many words that I use which don’t serve me in the very least. And the fun part is so fun: choosing a new thought along the lines of a belief that is better suited for me is so much better than shopping! Today’s activity goes into this very same practice with a more specific goal at heart; to identify and change a story you are telling. This might be any kind of a story – a story that explains and justifies why you are the way you are, or a story that makes it okay for you to not be happier, a story that you think is true of yourself a story you feel trapped by, a story of neglect, a story for lack of compassion – that you tell to yourself or to others. Basically,

It's okay.

It’s okay. It’s okay to try and not get it right. It’s okay to not even try in the first place. It’s okay to hold on real tight and you don’t want to let go even though you know it hurts.  It’s okay to love the wrong things. It’s okay to love the right things. It’s okay to be confused about life. It’s okay to feel proud of your saunter. It’s okay to hate your life too. It’s okay to want to change. It’s okay to want to stay exactly as you are. It’s okay to want to leave. Its okay to never want to leave. It’s okay to feel annoyed. It’s okay to feel happy doing nothing. It’s okay to want to do something. It’s okay to want help. It’s okay to not want to take help. It’s okay to be selfish. It’s okay to be selfless. It’s okay to love with abandon. It’s okay to not want to love with abandon. It’s okay to be afraid of the dark. It’s okay to like being in the dark too. It’s okay to be afraid of facing the light. It’s okay if you can’t find the light. It’s okay if you wan
