6 Habits of Highly Positive People

6 Habits of Highly Positive People

Positive anything is better than negative nothing.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

Because I talk and write so much about positive thinking and its importance in our life, I get asked a lot(LOTS!) of questions on the same too. One of the most common questions I get asked is, “How do you stay positive all the time?”

Newsflash! I don’t stay positive all the time……

I have my good days and bad days too. I get hurt at times and I get ecstatic at times too. I ain’t super human just because I am a positive thinker. I’m only human. It will still hurt when I get cut and bleed no matter how positive I may be.

The common misconception we have is that we need to stay positive all the time. No way! Its just unrealistic. Continue reading

The Ripple Healing Power of YOUR Smile :)

The Ripple Healing Power of YOUR Smile :)“DO THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT COME FROM YOUR HEART. When you do, you won’t be dissatisfied, you won’t be envious, you won’t be longing for somebody else’s things. On the contrary, you’ll be overwhelmed with what comes back.”–Morrie Schwarts

7 Way to keep Your Inner Child Alive

“Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon.  A happiness weapon.  A beauty bomb.  And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one.  It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air.  Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas.  And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight.  Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in.  With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest.  And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.” ~Robert Fulghum

I believe that in each of us there lives a little child who wants to and loves to come out and play. 

The biggest problem with growing up, is that we think we need to get all serious and boring. But that’s a whole load of hoohaa! We seem to feel that playing is only limited to childhood. When in reality WE grown ups NEED to play the most!

Why? Continue reading

7 Positive Life Lessons from #RUMI

7 Positive Life Lessons from RUMIRumi’s words, his verses and his poetry has always inspired me. Its moved me at the soul level. Its made me understand so many of life’s truths that sometimes when I sit to soak in his words, I am astounded by what they reveal. You can read the same poetry a hundred times over and each time you will come to understand another layer of the wisdom it offers. Amazing right?!

I was introduced to Rumi by my very brilliant dad. He loved all things poetry and I was always surrounded by books and debates discussing essential life philosophy. I started reading Rumi when I was just 12 years old! While other girls my age read Nancy Drews I was reading Rumi and Gibran…go figure🙂 I obviously couldn’t process Rumi’s words at the time, but I loved how his words calmed me. Dad would often quote Rumi in his day to day interactions. He would quote him in Urdu, Farsi and English. All these years of being exposed to this Sufi wisdom tends to rub off  :) Continue reading
