Quote – Existential

Dictionary.com announced  “Existential” as 2019 Word Of the Year.  With reference to “Forky in Toy Story 4”, Josh Cooley, Director, told Dictionary.com “Forky’s existential crisis resonates with audiences because we all think at one time or another, ‘What is my purpose in life?…Examining what it means to be alive through the googly eyes of a disposable utensil, used for soup, salad, or maybe chili, has us questioning our purpose beyond what we think we are and what we can be. The food is just the metaphor, but Forky’s journey is our journey, and he reminds us not to throw ourselves away!

 
It resonates with many of us trying hard to find “our purpose in life”! 
Jean-Paul Sartre’s famous quote sums up the sentiment of the word:  “What is meant here by saying that existence precedes essence? It means, first of all, man exists, turns up, appears on the scene, and, only afterward, defines himself. If man, as the existentialist conceives him, is indefinable, it is because at first, he is nothing. Only afterward will he be something, and he himself will have made what he will be.” 
 

	

Quote – Kindness

“Being a strong man includes being kind. There’s nothing weak about kindness and compassion. There’s nothing weak about looking out for others…You’re not a sucker to have integrity and to treat others with respect.”

Quote – Determination

“I will persist until I succeed. I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, walk or sleep with the sheep. I will hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.” 
Nirmal Purja MBE
“Everything in life is possible armed only with a determined approach and a positive mindset.”
Nirmal Purja MBE
Until October 2019, the fastest-known time for climbing all 14 of the world’s 8000-meter mountains was eight years. Nirmal Purja MBE, a Nepalese mountaineer has climbed the world’s 14 highest peaks in the space of just six months. Thanks to his determination and mindset.

Trust me when I say nothing stays the same forever. Life has a way of untangling the mess and showing you the remedy. All the painful episodes, the wrong, the unexpected hurt and the loss are being made up for. You just need to believe that things will get better. You need to step out of the darkness. Of course, every so often, it is difficult to get out of the shambles single-handedly. Eventually, you will recognize wise and well-intentioned people that will pull you out of the abyss. The emptiness you feel inside will be filled with hope, joy, and purpose. And things will start improving.

Because you always have a choice to transform for better. You go through hell and let the bitterness melt, you take the dirt and polish it, you take the punch and you learn to fight for yourself with dignity. The key is to accept that everything can go wrong but eventually, it will resolve. You need to take the pieces, sharpen your good sense, quiet your inner-demons, perfect your virtues to shape your best version. The version that is stronger, kinder and forgiving. It takes time, but gradually, the traumas will become pale, you will heal, and you’ll bounce back guided by empathy and generosity. You’ll start with nothing and end up with everything.

Quote – Best Version of Yourself

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”

Carl Jung

When you beat yourself up every time you fall short, when you are tired to the point that you don’t want to get out of bed, when you are scared to fail, when you worry and start overthinking, when you strive for perfection knowing well that it’s actually holding you back, take a deep breath, calm your nerves and know that you are doing great. It is not a weakness to feel helpless or frustrated in demanding situations and challenging moments. Live with it, accept it but do not let it define you. Take the time to rest, recharge, heal and continue your purpose in life which is to refine the best version of yourself.

Symphony of Life

Symphony, a vehicle of emotions, discussion & dialogue that moves you from uneasiness and darkness to passion and contentment. From turbulence to triumph the key is harmony.

The understanding, the friendship, the union, and the goodwill are part of life symphony. Examine your intentions, be clear, align your purpose to your goals, rehearse and let the rhythms of your desires score a standing ovation.

Quote – Self Restraint

“You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with magic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you.” – Warren Buffet
