KEEP AN EYE ON TIME, NOT MONEY

If we have billions and billions of dollars, we may be able to buy expensive cars, gadgets and mansions and we may be able to create beautiful monuments. But there is one thing that Money cannot create, and that is Time. No matter how many billions of dollars we have, we cannot buy an extra moment with Money – let alone an hour or day! An emperor has the same number of hours each day as a pauper, not a second more. Even if he wants to buy a minute, he cannot. On the other hand, if we have Time, we can always create wealth. Even if we lose Money, we can still think about recovering it or starting afresh and making more, but once a moment is gone, it’s gone forever. Now, doesn’t that make Time far more valuable than Money? And yet, many of us still value Money over Time.

KEEP AN EYE ON TIME, NOT MONEY

If we think about it, our attitude towards Money is very strange. We guard our wealth with our lives. Many of us hoard Money, spend it frugally and try not to waste it, even though we know we cannot take a penny with us when we die.

But when it comes to Time, we become indifferent, we are careless. To some of us, Time doesn’t even matter. We just don’t care! If we did, wouldn’t we respect Time? Would we waste it in meaningless pursuits that don’t matter to us? Would we while it away in purposeless activities? Would we let valuable moments pass us by in being miserable, or allow our past to make a wreck of our present? We make sure that we make the most of our Money, but do we ensure that we do the same with our Time?

There is little that most of us do to enjoy Time or effectively manage it, or save it by being efficient and result oriented. Not only that, we also complain, “I couldn’t do it because I didn’t have Time.” This is how we end up living our lives – with a long list of things to do, but without any effort to make Time to do such things. And then one fine day, our Time is up. It’s Time for us to leave this world, to let go of the gift of Life that gave us endless opportunities to do innumerable things, to do what we loved.

We may have millions of dollars in our bank when our ‘Time’ comes. We may be surrounded with opulent furniture, servants and what not, but if we wanted that one extra moment, not all the wealth in the world could bring it to us.

Isn’t it TIME to set our priorities right? One needs Money to survive, but we all need Time to Live. Let’s not waste Time. Let’s not trivialise it. Let’s value every moment that we have. Remember, we don’t have infinite Time. Let’s make every minute count, every hour special, every day memorable!

Always remember, Time is more valuable than Money.

If you can be Glad, but you choose to be Sad…You are MAD!

We are all a little crazy. Why? Because we can choose to be Happy, yet we choose to be Sad! Now, doesn’t that make us Mad? Happiness is a choice. It is up to us to be Happy. We must first decide to be Happy, no matter what, and then, work towards being Happy.

Life is Life. Things will happen around us. There will be events that disturb us, people who anger and provoke us. Neither can we control those events, nor can we control people. What we CAN control is our reaction to such happenings and people, because ultimately, it is our own reactions that make us unhappy.

How will we react when things go wrong for us?  Will we lose our calm and become furious?  Will we turn bitter and full of hate? Will we fall into a bottomless pit of self-pity? Will we lose confidence in ourselves?

Or will we brace ourselves and deal with unpleasant situations and people with a calm mind, a smile, with courage, fortitude and patience? This, to be precise, determines how Happy we will be.

 Let Go. Forget and Forgive!

Sometimes, for our own peace of mind, we simply need to let go of events or people who hurt us. Do we do that? No. On the contrary! We keep thinking about it. We hold on to our hurt. We curse our hurt, nurse it and rehearse it, when we should actually reverse it! We begin to carry a grudge that grows bigger with time. We refuse to forget, forgive and move on. The result? No one suffers but us. We become miserable. We become bitter and desperate. With so much negativity in our lives, how can we ever be Happy?

Reflect. Why do we react the way we do? It is our own choice! No one tells us to become agitated. Does anyone hold us at gun point and say, “Keep thinking about who hurt you. Be furious!” Certainly not. We do it of our own accord. And this is what we must change.

Each one of us holds the key to our own Happiness!

 

Remember: 

*           Don’t sweat the small stuff. It’s not worth it.
*           Not every argument has to be won.
*           Learn to handle situations calmly. 
*           Don’t overreact. Even if you react impulsively, you may regret it    later.
*           Don’t let people or circumstances rob you of your Happiness. Be in control. Why should anyone have that kind of power over you?
*           Don’t take everything so seriously. Smile, laugh, enjoy the little things of Life!
*           Accept people as they are – imperfect and flawed. Accept events you can’t change.
*           Embrace positive energies. Be loving, hopeful and compassionate. 
*           Help others! Selfless acts of kindness contribute to our sense of well-being – it’s a proven fact.

Learn to be Happy. Choose to be Happy!

Despite knowing that we can be Glad,  if we still choose to be Sad, then aren’t we Mad?

Add Colour to Your Life

Some people live such boring lives; it’s Black & White, so dead! I choose to color my life with Fun, some Blue, some Green, some Red.

When I look around, I find many people living boring lives; there is no excitement, no fun. They are not rejoicing each day, let alone months and years. They say, “I do go out for a holiday once a year”. But otherwise their lives are mundane, ordinary, without spice and without anything to look forward to. Don’t live your life that way. Add fun to your life. Add color to your life – make a day red, another day blue and another green – so that in the end your life is like a beautiful painting. Enjoy every moment and every day of your life doing things you Love and things that make you truly happy. Remind yourself that life is about making everyday a celebration with colors that will make you dance and scream with joy.
