Inside the mind of a happy person

Inside the mind of a happy person

I open a door which is at the highest level. I enter the room as always with a smile, appreciating the beauty of life. There were a variety of soft bright colours all around the room. It feels like you were in an animated movie but everything is real. I sat there gazing at the colours. I could feel the soft breeze and the freshness of the grass in the room. I could smell the fragrance of Rose. I had nothing in the mind. I was only enjoying the beauty.

“The shirt you are wearing in this photo makes you look like a gay.” said a voice from another room.

I found myself opening another door. This door was many levels below I the room I enjoyed spending time. It seemed like it had bright colours. But I was fooled. I got sucked into the room and the door behind closed. I had no option to go back, so I went further into the room. This room had mud all over. My shoes were now muddy. The thought of cleaning it lingered in my mind. It started raining. I regretted about not carrying my umbrella. My worst fears kept coming alive one by one. Due to the rain, I had a running nose. My mobile and wallet were in my pocket and had no means of protecting them. By now they were thoroughly wet.

I took a moment to ask myself a question.

Am I creating this situation for myself?

The moment I asked this question, I realised, the power to turn things around and what I can create was in my control.

I ran towards a different door. As soon as I entered, I soon realised the room had many clones of me. Each of them had an opinion about the situation.

One with an orange robe said, “The voice from another door might be jealous; calm down. That voice does not know the impact of those words. You are the mature one”.

One with a beard, who was eating a burger said, “How could she say like that to you?”.

This question made me angry and sad at the same time. I realised I hate criticism.

The one in semi formals said, “There are better ways to express criticism”.

The one in the formals said, “Not all of them are like you”.

One with an orange robe spoke again, “It has nothing to do with who you are. Just ignore it”.

Another one who looked exactly like me said: “Maybe it’s sarcasm. Just smile and let it go”.

I smiled. The clones started disappearing. Without the clones, the room became smaller. I knew I had to open a door and enter into it. I did just that, and finally, I was back into the room I loved.

I was back into the bright colours and the feeling of warmth. Back to that awesome feeling of grass beneath me and fragrance of Rose. The door of the from where the voice came from was still around visible. It was slowly vanishing into the bright colours. It was faintly visible as if it could just come back anytime.

I thought to myself, “Why isn’t it vanishing?”.

Listen to music I said. I put on a soothing song by Santana. It is called Europa. I started grooving to the guitar. This song is just beautiful. I started floating up in the bright room. It felt like I was in a void floating around. The door from which the voice came from was not becoming fainter. It started to disappear. I continued to enjoy the music. I was back to my happy state without the worry of the voice.

Waking up to her messy beauty

Waking up to her messy beauty

What kind of partner do you want?

A question two of my friends have asked me, and I was convincingly able to give the same answer to both of them without hesitation. I can think many different ways to describe what I want in a partner. But it all comes down one thing – peacefully getting up to her messy beauty in the morning.

The real measure of women’s beauty is when she wakes up messy in the morning, and you never get bored of seeing her that way.

I believe in an idea where I am excited to return home. The feeling of being excited is what defines the pure essence of calling something home. You don’t want to get back to just to argue over something silly and trivial. You know you are living that relationship when you feel like kissing her forehead every morning. The messy beauty grows stronger by the day, and a beautiful, compassionate love is born. Passionate love can last a couple of years, but compassionate love grows over time.

Of course, I cannot say there is not a relation that can survive without few fights and arguments. For this, we have to deconstruct and bring out the two different mindsets. Fixed mindset is where either of the partners in a relationship has the little amount of Self-Awareness. Their attempt is to focus their energy on correcting habits which are of little importance in a relation. This kind of mindset creates some friction and curbs your excitement to reach home.

Growth mindset on the other is different. It’s a much better umbrella to have those fights and arguments. You do not feel irritated; there is no frustration in doing other tasks or even working. Each of the partners provides enough space for each other to be themselves and understand the importance of individual time.

HIIT Home Workout for beginners – Week1

HIIT Home Workout for beginners – Week1

After a minor injury on my lower back, I decided to work on building my body strength. Of course I don’t want to bulk up. I just want an agile body and ensure I do not fall prey to minor injuries because I am not fit.

A few months back I started working out everyday and it’s feels great to maintain the consistency. To take it to the next level, it’s high I bring structure to what I do and hence this 90 day challenge of #thebodycoach HIIT Home Workout for beginners.

This workout begins with a few warm up exercises and moves on to 4 work outs in the following order:

  1. Running with high knees
  2. Burpees
  3. Power Squats
  4. Mountain climbers

Day 1 was difficult, I could do only 3 circuits. Each requires a 30 seconds of work, followed by 30 seconds rest. For the first circuit I was able to do it but for the next 2 circuits it became difficult, so I ended up resting for 45 seconds for the next 2 circuits.

Goal: 5 Circuits with 30 seconds work, followed by 30 seconds.

I will write my journey of the challenge every week and hope I complete it.

Moonlight Kiss

Moonlight Kiss

We slept on the water tank of our apartment watching the bright moonlight. We slept for hours gazing at the moon and the sky becoming more beautiful. My hands slightly brushed against her arms and I wished I could do more than just touch her arms. I could not just do it. It was a special night, and there seemed a sense of urgency to grab her hair softly and kiss her.

After hours of gazing the moon, I got up and sat down while she still staring at the sky. I looked at her as she lay comfortably and watching the moon. I could see a white line of reflection on her lips, and her shiny hair spread on the tank. It was an incredible delight to experience and get lost. She just lay there still, and I just did not want to disturb her. I looked away for a while, and a few minutes later I could feel her soft hands sliding on my chest. She went slow and then hugged me tightly. It felt comfortable. I slowly ran few of my fingers on her right arm and held her shoulders firmly and pulled in front of me. It was gentle move, and I was surprised at what I did myself. She hugged me again from the front, and I was now breathing warmly on her neck. I softly kissed her on the neck and continued to do so till I reached her cheek bone. There was a pause with our lips close to each other. We both looked into each other’s eyes, and suddenly she just closed her eyes for a moment and leaned in. I could feel her soft lips on mine, and there was no going back.

The experience was a memorable kiss, a moonlight kiss.
