The happy sad story # 1

Marry me, so we can spend our weeknights eating peanut butter and nutella on the floor when there is a perfect dining table right behind us. We can go to the movies and get the corner seats just to kiss and giggle; it’s like falling in love for the first time.

Marry me so we can paint our rooms together and get more paint on each other instead of the walls. We can hold hands and go to parties that we don’t wanna be at and then go home early and split medium sized pizza and a bottle of mountain dew.

Marry me so we can slow dance in the bedroom to dubstep and guess what Skrillex’s real name would be. Marry me so we can drive without a destination, exploring uncharted territories just like we explore each other’s bodies, Marry me so i can love you and be with you forever.

Marry me because every night before i go to sleep, i imagine how beautiful and amazing our children will look. But when we grow old, don’t you dare be the first one to go because the day you’re not on this earth would be a terrible terrible day for all.


5 Minute Read (5mr): A Day is Nothing More Than a Day

I’ve started this new ‘thing’ called “5mr”. It gives you a inspirational or philosophical point of view. I found these text on the internet and i want you guys to read it too. I’ll try and post it every week, preferably every Sunday. Hope you guys like what you read and implement these things in your life too.

What makes a day good or bad? Do you let events outside of your control define these labels? Or are YOU in control of your happiness?

Time and time again, on Facebook, twitter, in conversations, there is always someone that is having a bad day. Is it you? Well, if you are having a bad day, why? You locked your keys in your car? Slipped on the ice? People treated you badly? Woke up late? Stubbed your toe? Cussed out by your boss? Got a speeding ticket? Just feel like shit? Whatever the reason, no matter how small or large, you must learn to take responsibility and realize that it is YOU that is deciding to label the day bad. Yes, many things can and will happen that are outside of your control. These may not align with your definition of a “good day”. There will be many events that occur that you oppose. This is normal, this is life. However, whether you know it or not, you are in complete control of how you respond to these situations.

Let’s say you lock your keys in your car when you’re already late for work. The event already happened, the keys are stuck and you’re late. Yes, this does suck. Yes, it is easy to be frustrated over this situation. There is nothing you can do to change the fact that you locked your keys in your car and you’re late. Time does not go backwards. Trying to fight something that can not be changed is simply insane. If this were to happen to you, would you get angry? Would you be frustrated? Would this be a start to a bad day? If so, consider this – How you feel, at any moment, is completely your responsibility. Frustration and anger are not caused from the event, they are caused from your reaction to the event.

“But things just keep going wrong today!” Then why make it worse by labeling the day as bad? A day is nothing more than a day. You have to eventually realize that the day or experience is only bad because you are deciding that it is bad. I find it interesting that when pointing this out to anyone who is having a “bad day” how often it is completely rejected. “It’s not my fault I’m angry!” Yes it is. “It’s not my fault I’m frustrated!” Yes it is. Denying this is completely irresponsible.

Note that you’re not taking responsibility for the event. It may not be your fault that so-and-so said such-and-such, or that someone stole your phone, but if you’re upset over the episode, it’s all on you. It’s completely insane and unconscious to claim that you can not change your reaction to a situation. Are you a mindless drone? Take some conscious action and stop acting helpless.

It may feel like it is beyond your control. It may be so ingrained in your mind that when x happens you need to react with y. Perhaps x = someone yelling at you and y = crying. The reaction could be unconscious, but you need to learn to shift this to your conscious mind. You don’t always have to follow x with y. You are a conscious self aware being after all, right?

I’m definitely not suggesting never feeling sad, upset, frustrated, or angry. I’m pretty sure I would sound crazy if that were the case. But the first step is to understand that you are reacting. Just become aware of it. Notice how it feels. The next time you feel your body switching into anger mode, shift into the present moment. Don’t just count to 10. Feel how you feel. Notice the reaction. Once the awareness of your reaction becomes more apparent, it’s then time to shift from reaction to response. Yes, you can consciously respond to any situation in any way you choose rather than unconsciously reacting. Flail your arms in the air right now. Who did that? You did. In the same way, you can choose to respond to anything however you wish.

Of course, physical pain is completely different. If someone punches you in the face it’s not your fault you feel pain. You’re hurt because of the fist, not because you’re choosing to be hurt. If you catch the flu and are puking your guts out, you can’t just choose to feel healthy. But even in a situation like this, you can choose to not whine, complain and act helpless. You can still be happy even when you don’t feel like it. There is still a response you can give to something like this.

Hoping for a good day tomorrow goes against all logic. Why hope for a good day? Why not just decide to have a good day? And why tomorrow, why not now? Tomorrow never even really exists, you never live in tomorrow, you always live in today, in the now. So, instead of wishing a good or bad day, from now on I’m just going to wish for a day. You either have a day or you don’t and I’d prefer to have one.

So, with that being said, I hope you all have a day today.

The Lovey Dovey Effect!

Look, he has a backup! so do i.

Someone Truly said, “bachelors should be taxed heavily. it’s not fair that some men should be happy than others.” after watching the new Bollywood love movies like Love ka the end, pyaar ka punchnaama, mujhse fraandship karoge, miley na miley hum etc… i got to learn one thing in my mind. “Kabhi pyaar me mat padna.”

The only good thing which happens when we fell in love is that we (Man) start being sensitive and sentimental and stop watching movies like The Die Hard, Texas chainsaw massacre and whatnot, only to start downloading and watching shitty love-com like Friends with Benefits & PS I love you. I mean there’s nothing wrong in the movies, the movies are good, they are made for the people to watch but c’mon we (Man) aren’t suppose to watch Love-com or S*itty Animation-love flicks like the one in toy story (Mr. & Mrs. Potato-head).

Man needs to be man and woman needs to be whatever she wants! what gives me the right to say that, you ask? My two past relationships, that’s the answer. I have been called a liar and an Egotistical, Self-Centered, Self-Righteous and a prick. And why is that you might ask? because apparently i dont give someone enough space,“Kyon, Main tumhaari god(Lap) mein  baitha hoon?”.

Let’s commit a perfect crime, I’ll steal your heart & you’ll steal mine. Yeh sab Facebook ke status ke liye hi bane hain. dont implement it in your real life. Personally, i have a love life motto and i would love to share it with dear readers here:

Love: The one way ticket to heart break city!

Do you have a friend who’s very wounded in love? then please click the share button and post it in his facebook. Make him read this and show him he’s not alone!
