“NEVER STOP LEARNING BECAUSE LIFE WILL NEVER STOP TEACHING”

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving” – Albert Einstein

It is rightly said never stop learning….because life is the teacher which gives you the opportunity to learn new things each and every day. It motivates you to learn and defeat the challenges which we come across. The greatest teacher you could ever have is your life. Knowledge can come from anywhere and everywhere.

Life gives you the best lessons from sacrifice to compromise, and a wise man will always take each of them seriously.
All we need is to grab it and inculcate that in our day-to-day lives. Many times, you may feel down but remember that it’s not the ending. Failures will force you to loosen down but Losers are the ones who refuse to stand up, not the ones who fall down repeatedly.

No matter how many times you find yourself lost or broken; all that matters is the time when you didn’t feel like starting things all over again. One must always hold an attitude to continue learning new things.
Learning is a never-ending journey. From birth till death , we are in continuous cycle of learning new things. It is a necessary part of our life.By observing new things and experiencing it in our lives, our sight of perspective broadens and changes the way we see the world. It improves our behavior and the way we think by expanding and challenging our understanding. We get to know a lot of things and these things become our memories which are lessons to the life. These memories could be good or bad, that doesn’t mean bad memories are to neglected. Each and every memory gives you a lesson to learn something new experiences. Our education system teaches a lot, but that is relevant fir bookish knowledge. Life teaches you the lesson to live .

“The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it” – Walt Disney

Never think that you know so much that doesn’t mean the end of your learning procedure. No one is prefect in knowledge Each one of us learn step by step through life. It is a continuous and when life teaches you something, be an optimist to learn it as quickly as possible. Life will keep on teaching you every moment of the day, and a real hero is the one who remains open to changes or take lessons from every incident that takes place in his or her life.
Learning is about enriching our minds. Learning new things represents the growth mindset. To be good learner you should be able practice focused hinking modes of brain. Focused thinking is when you concentrating on something that you try to learn.
There is no age or limit to which we can learn, whenever you want to know new things explore it. It only depends on the will to learn. Try to innovate new things in your life. Stay Positive Stay Learning…..!!!!!!

Amazing life hacks

Life hacks are shortcut tricks used for making some familiar task more easily and efficiently. It eliminates complexity of work in simple and clever ways.
Now need not to throw used materials in waste.

Have a look to these amazing life hacks –

Smelly shoes – If you have bad-smelling shoes, place a few dry tea bags inside each shoe to absorb the smell. If your shoes are not just smelly but also wet, fill them with a mixture of rice and baking soda and leave for a few days.

Grow roses from cuttings – Here’s a great tip for growing roses from cuttings. Before planting, push the bottom ends of the cuttings into small potatoes. Moisture and nutrients in the potatoes will allow the cuttings to develop healthy roots.

Remove Highlighter stains –
You could remove highlighter marks from a book? Lemon juice fades highlighter enough to make it virtually undetectable. Cut a lemon in half and get some juice on a cotton swab. Run the swab over the highlighted text and watch the color fade. Lemon juice from a container also seems to do the trick. Though not quite as well on the pieces we tested, and the older the mark, the more stubborn it is to remove.

How to double your Reusbale bags – This might be the coolest way to turn sandwich-size bags into snack-size bags. Here’s how to do it: Heat up an old butter knife with a lighter and slice the bag in half. The hot knife cauterizes the edges of the two new bags. The cauterized edges are as strong as the factory sealed edges.

Keep buttons from falling off – To keep your buttons in place, simply paint a bit of clear nail polish over the threads.

Fog free mirrors – Prevent your bathroom mirror from fogging up after a hot shower with car wax. Apply a small amount of car wax to the mirror, let it dry, then buff with a soft, dry cloth.

Remove candle wax from furniture with ice cubes – If you ever spill candle wax on a piece of furniture don’t risk ruining its finish by trying to scrape it off. Instead, fill a plastic bag with ice cubes, place it over the wax, and let it sit for a few minutes. Once the wax has sufficiently cooled and hardened, you can pick it up easily without ruining your furniture for good.

No watering can? – This super simple hack of an old milk jug is perfect for a new gardener that hasn’t gone out and bought a watering can yet. Just upcycle your old plastic milk jug by heating up a needle and poking holes in the lid so water can flow through it freely.

Use citrus peel to start seeds – Just poke a hole in the bottom of the peel for drainage, fill it with potting soil, then sow seed and sprinkle some water. When the seedling is ready for transplant, plant it directly in a garden or in a container with the peel. The peel will decompose and nourish the young plant as it grows.

Deodrant Stains – you use deodorant or antiperspirant, you’ve likely had to deal with those charming white stains around the armpits of some of your clothes. Strangely enough, rubbing those stains with dryer sheets seems to lift them out really well. Of course, the dryer sheet trick only really works for fresh stains; for older ones, soak them overnight in a 2:1 solution of white vinegar : water, and then launder as usual.

Soap bottle – A quick and easy way to recycle plastic bottles is to repurpose your bottle as a soap bottle. All you need is a twist-on soap dispenser spout and any empty bottle can be used this way.

Shirt pillow case – Turn old shirts into a pillowcase. You can use t-shirts as well!

Baby sleeping bag – Use an old pillowcase to make your baby comfy.

Citrus candles – Make an orange or a lemon candle, and its light and aroma will last a long time.

Get Wrinkles out of your laundry with zero effort – Ditch the time-consuming iron or handheld steamer to get wrinkles out of a shirt or slacks. Throw a few ice cubes or a wet washcloth in the dryer with your wrinkled clothes. As the ice melts and the water turns to steam, it will remove the wrinkles. This trick isn’t as effective with heavier clothing but is a miracle for lighter fabrics. The best part is that you don’t have to set the dryer for longer than 10 minutes for it to work.

Anyone can try these hacks at home. Stay Healthy Stay Creative…..!!!!!

A step towards spreading happiness….

“The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up” – Mark Twain

Happiness : In terms of psychology, we call happiness as positive emotions such as joy, pride, interest, enthusiasm. Happiness has also been said to relate to life satisfaction, appreciation of life, and moments of pleasure that means it has to do with the positive experience of emotions.

Many people think that happiness is having fun at a party, the excitement of new experiences or the delights of a fine meal. These are all wonderful experiences to be cherished and experience but they are not happiness. Happiness is something comes when you feel satisfied and fulfilled. It is a feeling of contentment and satisfaction.

“Happiness is the settling of the soul into its most appropriate spot.”
– Aristotle

It is a fact, “Everybody wants to be happy and everyone loves to feel happy” so try to build positive environment near you to get yourself happy and others.

Being happy and making others happy is a Complex task as everyone has their own sense of comfortable environment. Being happy or unhappy is there’s own choice. People who chose to be unhappy because they think that by being unhappy, they will get something which is wrong. Unhappiness van never lead to your goal of achieving anything.

When we step towards spreading happiness, we tend to forget our own sadness and also we get new ways to deal with difficult situations. When a person fills a part of kindness to other, it comes back with a feeling of love, care and happiness.

“I think happiness is what makes you pretty. Happy people are beautiful.They become like a mirror and they reflect that happiness” – Drew Barrymore

How to be happy and make everyone happy there are several ways-

  • Act of kindness “Give what you Get”- Most of the time people treat you as you treat them. Although, there are some who are ungrateful but you should still have positive feeling no matter what they do.
  • Smile – It is the best way to be happy and speed happiness to others. An act of smile creates positive vibes to yourself and other person.
  • Make an effort to build good thoughts- try to spread good thoughts about anyone, being gossiping negative things make yourself with negative thoughts and the person listening surrounds with off feeling vibrations.
  • Appreciate – Always praise and appreciate to what you like and observe It helps us get in tune with feelings with others. It is a good medium to spread happiness by appreciating worthy.
  • Surprise others- Surprise others with different things they love such as kind words, help, etc.
  • Donate what you can do as charity- Helping the needy gives the person the most sense of self satisfaction. Giving a hand to somebody in crisis is the biggest act of kindness and happiness. Smile on the face of needy gives the full mental satisfaction.
  • Listen to someone who wants your attention- Just be there when someone wants you to be attended. It builds a feeling of that someone is there to support and help.
  • Be thankful to the one who helped you – Move a step to express gratitude for people who helped in your bad times.

Be communicative to the ones you feel is not feeling well mentally. We have to realise the need of happiness for oneself and the world

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate” – Oprah Winfrey

For All My Life I’ll Wonder Why

Are you still waiting for some last words of reason and explanations? Perhaps you were never really meant to get them ever. For if you think about it, what is closure really? Is it the memories left behind by those lilting words? Or is it the agony of those harsh words that you keep replaying over time in your own head?

Most people have someone in their lives with whom they lost contact over a period of time. Some goodbyes were intentional on both sides while many of them were aided with a sudden abruptness for no apparent reason at all. Or better still; some goodbyes were all out bitter. Yet somewhere in your mind, you might still be expectant on some form of communication regarding why.

Closure is a very funny thing; it has widely different meanings for different people. But at the end of the day, all someone wants is to feel some sort of resolution to a relationship. What will break your heart, although, is the fact that most people never get to really experience the closure that they want. And even if they do get closure, it will be in some unexpected form.

clos title

For some people, closure is having the person who wronged them admit to the said wrongdoing. As rarely as it happens, this will not help you reach a space of healing though.

For some, closure means the other person providing an explanation for his actions, right or wrong. The wronged party truly feels that this will help them move on in their lives and move past that one past experience.

Then there is another form of closure which is closure in the form of revenge. You wait to witness something bad happen to the person who wronged you or you take things in your hands and try to wreck their lives. This one is always empty. It will give you only a false sense of satisfaction because, in the end, you are still hurting. On top of that, you will most probably end up regretting your actions.

Closure is like the last chapter of a book, a book that you are writing. And whenever you finish a book, you move on to the new one. If you get stuck on that one book and just look back on the past, it will always leave you feeling salty. Instead, you could decide what you want as your own ending and move on with your life by resolving your issues.

Imagine what closure means to you. Is it an apology you are waiting for or something you wanted to say to the other person? If it is revenge, figure out why you need revenge instead of a revenge plot. Now write it down as a letter, rant all you want, and burn it.

When you are finally free of all you wanted to say or be said, figure out your future strategy. Focus on your life ahead. Whatever your need be for closure, the endgame remains moving on.

“Can Volcanoes be beneficial for us?”

Population has seen a  great hike from last century and is still growing with a rapid speed. We the need for natural resources to feed, clean water to drink, clean air to breath and land to live are significantly decreasing. The waste production is also increasing as we are using most of plastic products and things made from them and just throwing them away. But also there is some other junk and waste which gets accumulated and takes time to decompose. We humans usually throw our day today waste in our bins or public bins as on the road side to keep our home and surrounding clean. Garbage truck then takes the garbage and throws it outside of the city area, away from humans. This has been a chain process of years of chain process and we have significantly accumulated a lot of trash . This has just piled up and is gathering most of our land for decomposing or just keeping it. Which is an issue as we do require much land for building homes, offices for work, and many more. Also it is not good for our environment too. 

So what could be the best option to do with these trash mountains? Well some scientist did come up with the option to dump most of this junk into volcanoes . But the question which arises is “that would it be beneficial and successful leaving no junk behind and thus saving us?”  Volcano consists of hot lava which is expected to come from the earth core. These are sources which help this lava and gases to escape the surface. The lava is considered to be hot and has 1700 degree celsius, hot enough to melt anything and absorb in it. So it could be considered a better option to throw all the junk and waste in it which would get dissolved in the heat and thus we can get rid of all the waste. 

The problem with this solution of getting rid of the waste using this way is to:

  1.  Find the presence of active volcanoes and their strength. Most of these are not present near mankind and we do need to spend a lot of research and resources to find these. 
  2. The other problem which could be an issue, is the presence of harmful gases which can cause health issues if any individual inhales them. 
  3. Also the problem or air pollution still remains, as we know lava is hot, it would be burning components when thrown inside it. This material consists of plastic bags, containers,cans, and various other waste materials which is enough to release carbon content in air and thus would be the reason for most harmful gases. 

“So it is a straight “No” to the idea of throwing into a volcano and getting rid of these. So what could be the better options for us to do. Most often it is advised to reuse most of the things which can be. But about others thinks which cannot be reused and sting while present near us. Research work and various technologies are being made to get rid of this kind of waste soon so as to save us from the lack of resources and thus build up a better future, seeking no waste in our surrounding rather beautiful views far Hill site and fresh and pure air all around”. 

Natural Calamities – Uncertainty and different Possibilities.

Nature is a divine power and we humans still face challenges to fight back its cruelty and become tougher to survive during its duration and the time after it’s gone. These calamities are all natural, and these include earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, cyclones and various others which do question the survival of human and other living breeds on this planet. These have been a part of earth atmosphere and earth is confined to happening of these every year in various parts of the world. There have been times when these calamities have peaked up and had shown their devastating phase harming both men and material. We have seen earthquakes of magnitude 9.5 in early 60’s in Chile, , we have seen floods, typhoons, tsunamis and many more which have been proven to be deadliest. 

We hear about these hurricanes and cyclones or typhoons each meaning the same. These differ in their names on the basis of their presence, like we often name tropical storms of high speed as hurricanes in the North Atlantic Ocean, while similar strong winds are named as cyclones in South pacific and Indian oceans. These are usually storms which are rotating at high speeds. We know that pressure is low near these tropical areas because the air is warm . These form when the warm and moist air over the ocean rises  this attracts the nearby colder air to accumulate nearby by forming the swirls of air. The moist air continues to rise and thus cools, forming clouds. These clouds usually continue to swirl and thus go on expanding. These hurricanes can be really strong and effective and thus cause a lot of destruction to the area which is hit with it. 

So we do acknowledge how these hurricanes can be really harmful for us and thus cause a lot of destruction but “What if 2 or more hurricanes coming from distant areas collide, what would be the result and how would it affect the humans”. This Phenomenon of two hurricanes coming close don’t happen often but scientists believe that it do happen. But The Fact to concentrate is that scientists also believe that these could become a common calamity as the temperature of earth’s rising, it would really be a bad experience if one came across such scenario of two hurricanes colliding. So it’s believed that if the two hurricanes are of equal size and strength, they would orbit around a common centre. This could result in sending or pushing them back in different directions or maybe it could end this due to collision. But if one is bigger in size or strength, then the smaller one would get absorbed in the  bigger one, which can increase the power and strength and life span of the hurricane. This could really impact humanity by it’s destruction. 

“Climatologists  believe that in future times these could become common and the speed of these winds could increase significantly since the earth temperature is rising. These would lead to rise of more storms in the tropical areas. We believe that it’s all natural and humans can’t do anything about these. But since we understand the importance of “Global Warming” and “Climate Change”, which is affecting earth’s temperature to rise. We could strongly work on our carbon emissions and factors leading to these phenomena. We can shift to a better source and mode of technology and infrastructure which would not only help us fight with increasing global warming but also protect us during occurrence of these natural calamities. We humans do have a bigger part in these natural calamities which we hide to blame and thus question our nature everytime”. 

KEEP BREATHING

“If you want, You can talk with me……from yesterday all are giving status and send messages to their friends family that if you want to share something, express yourself. I feel so good that my friends and family care for me. I think we should be express our feelings with ourselves and of course with near ones. We all have different lifestyles, different kinds of problems in our life. It’s really a blessing you have someone who really listens to you. But I notice sometimes when I need people to talk, they are not there for some of their issues. I am not complaining about that every person has his or her own Life. So I just want to tell you that when you are feeling alone just spending time with your self, you can do the things you like, cooking, drawing, listening to music, exercise, a little walk, reading books. I really prefer drawing colors really make me happy, don’t be sad, cheer up yourself, tell your self YOU CAN DO

Make yourself happy, Do the Things you like

There is some situation came when we avoid people as we don’t want to, on that we really need to cheer up ourselves and should spend time with our friends and families as sometimes things are getting better just spending time with some special people in our life, life is for express. So don’t miss the opportunity to spend time with your old friends, families .

Don’t take pressure too much, life is not only all about success and failure,

From the movie CHICHORE

The first step: Building blocks of life

An atmosphere of happiness gets created when a new life takes shape. When you entered the world, you had no sense about yourself. You may have cried several times to express when you wanted something. Slowly as you grew, you started saying chunks of words, gradually crawling and finally learn to walk. This succession couldn’t be determined and taught in advance. Everything takes time.

Some alphabet are written on the board.
The first letters of the alphabet.

Similarly, when you go to school first time and till graduation and further, that journey is a long way to go. This stage of life is where your proper education starts. Starting from learning alphabets but in different languages as the curriculum is diverse across the world. Every parent wishes that their child gets the best school to seek a good job and secure their future generation in a better way. Do anyone think about being a better human, unknowingly these are gained through what we learn and observe things around us.

The kids are drawing.
The kids are learning to draw objects.

The problem is that everyone in the world doesn’t have the same capabilities like in terms of money, maybe a person is willing to study but don’t have proper financial support, their dream comes to an end. Although there are scholarships, not everyone has adequate knowledge of how to gain, or else those money goes in the wrong hand and that’s where the corruption starts. There are numerous reasons like the person is not willing to study a particular subject. They have to learn it forcefully, leading to depression, bad academic results, lack confidence, low self-esteem, and much more. This situation happens because, in some countries, they follow an old education policy, rarely updated, and there is no freedom to choose subjects electively. Not everyone likes to become a doctor or an engineer in the future. One may wish for something that the person likes, but the society fears by conveying that the particular field has no scope in the future.

Bookshelves in a library.
A library

There are many more problems related to education, like in schools, there is not even a proper student to teacher ratio maintained, no adequate infrastructure due to improper funding. No digitalization due to which the students rely on the book knowledge and ends up there. There are public libraries that do offer books and also allow them to access the internet, but this model is not visible everywhere. In this patriarchal society, not only these but also problems are there with the mentality of their parents. Like where they think a girl shouldn’t pursue higher education as they will have to work one day at someone else’s houses or don’t allow their children to study as they are their sole supporters. No one else is there to look after them.

An open corridor.
A doorway in a school

Remote education and distant learning may solve these problems, but we need to find these group of people who actually require help and then voluntarily study in the future. There are children in rural areas who can’t access these facilities. We need to reach and also improvise our current education curriculum so that the employment rate decrease and one can stand on itself and employ others for their work.

World Blood Donor Day 2020

Today, WHO ( World Health Organization) and All countries celebrate World Blood Donor Day. This year’s theme is “Safe Blood Save lives” with the Slogan “Give blood and make the world healthier”. This event celebrates with a view to thank all selfless blood donors and encourage more people to Give blood freely.

Through the campaign, we call on more people all over the world to become life-savers by volunteering to donate blood regularly.

International organizations, including the World Health Organization, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Federation of Blood Donor Organizations and the International Society of Blood Transfusion, among others, continue to work in close collaboration to provide guidance and support to their membership in this endeavour.

“Safe Blood Save lives”. “Give blood and make the world healthier”.

Life Unplugged

For a second, let your imagination run along these lines. It is a beautiful morning, the sun is slowly rising. You are there on your balcony, peacefully sitting and the only sound you can hear is the chirping of birds. In your hand is your favorite drink, and in your mind is calmness. Amidst all this, you take a long deep breath and feel connected to your soul.

Your life keeps going on and you do things which you think are important for you. You never once stop to just take a breath and look around to see where you have actually reached; what is going on in your own life. So to counteract this, there is this unworldly concept that you just sometimes take a break from your life; you unplug from your own life.

More often than not, you forget to take a break. And even if you do take it, you usually only give it to your physical being but forget that your mental being is equally important.

Take a break every now and then to reevaluate your life and your surroundings. It is just as important to stop as it is to continue to accomplish things because, without a balanced head, you would not be able to accomplish them anyway. Take a break from places, from routines, from people, and even from yourself. Unplug from the chaos of life.

Plug back into life in its purest form and not through a lens. Plug back to your values and the things you desire. Connect to those who truly matter. Connect to peace, joy, and Zen. Embrace your inner self once in a while.

  1. Start your day with yourself

There will come a time when you have to attend to your duties and obligations. The world will start pulling at you and the day will become just a domino effect of endless pulls. Before that happens, spare a few moments for yourself.  You deserve it. Nobody else is more important than you. Take five minutes to breathe, contemplate, and feel grateful for your life.

yoga

  1. Mind your diet

The world is a chaotic place where every being has to fend for himself. Start by minding and mending your food habits. Introduce a new super item into your diet. The only condition is that it should be healthy. Drink a green smoothie if you like that. Find healthier alternatives for your favorite foods. Try eating cakes and sweets that are gluten-free. Cleanse your diet.

  1. Empower yourself with an inspiring book

Your subconscious mind creates reality. Feed your mind with the world you want to create for yourself. Start your day by reading a portion of a book that embeds positive thoughts in your mind.

  1. Explore your neighborhood

It is not necessary for you to travel to exotic places to feel relaxed. You could just go outside your home and take a walk around your neighborhood. Connect yourself with nature. Try a new restaurant. Join a class that you wanted to for a long time.

  1. Prioritize your time and feelings

Learn to balance your time within your boundaries. Manage the time you spend on social media. Own up your actions and let people know how you want to be treated. Focus less on what you want to do and achieve and more on how you want to feel while achieving that.
