My New Year Resolution That Never Changes

Ever since I understood the meaning of New Year resolution, I wished just one thing "I want to keep myself Happy". And for this coming year also I'm taking the same purpose for myself. I’ll try to do everything that it takes to make myself happy. People make different resolutions with every new year. I would admit, I did that also. I made new resolutions for me and tried to complete them. But soon I realized that everything in this world is related to happiness one or the other way. Happiness is so important to us, both as individuals and as a world, primarily because happiness is really everything.

My New Year Resolution That Never Changes by Vibhu & Me
We tend to forget how important happiness is and get consumed with our own negative feelings of doom and gloom from time to time. We sometimes don’t consciously realize that we are doing this to ourselves. As human beings, although we are highly "thought" oriented, the quality of our lives is ultimately ENTIRELY determined by our emotions. How we feel, how we think and then how we do. As individuals and as societies, happiness should be both our highest goal and an extremely effective means of achieving many other goals. And that's why I have stopped making new resolutions every year. I stick to just one goal for the whole year. BE HAPPY, SEE HAPPY

Being happy could be a mix of these things (or more) for me:

1. Facing life's challenges with smile
2. A healthy and Stress-free living
4. Some form of spirituality
5. Balancing family and work
6. and most importantly my son's happiness

I believe feeling happy is intrinsically important for oneself. If I am happy, I shall be more compassionate and feeling healthier both physically and emotionally. I shall be more creative, energetic and jolly only if I am happy. I shall try to make myself strong enough to face outside distractions and influences. Very few of us live our lives in complete isolation. We have kids, families, friends and work colleagues with whom we interact on a daily basis so if I am happy, then it’s likely to mean that my family and friends feel happier too. I know that it's hard to achieve complete happiness because I am trying this for last few years. But I want to continue my efforts. Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect, it means that I have decided to look beyond imperfections.

So here are my 7 mantras to happiness that I try to follow every year:

1. Think Less, Feel More
2. Frown Less, Smile More
3. Talk Less, Listen More
4. Judge Less, Accept More
5. Watch Less, Do More
6. Complain Less, Appreciate More
7. Fear Less, Love More

What are your new year resolutions? Did you get time to check your earlier resolutions and how much you achieved? Now is the time to start doing this exercise. The year 2018 is so close to joining the party. And if you are making resolutions for the new year, please include one point from my side. "I want to keep myself Happy".  This is the one thing that is all.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

This post is for #BharatKaZaika is a blogging event conducted by #BlogBoosterIndia. 

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage

You see, In our country, there is a tradition of respecting and celebrating food. The spirit of classical Indian civilization guided that primary duty of the king is to ensure that none within his domain suffers from hunger. Hence the king ensured that people…
