PURPOSE OF LIFE

There is a very famous quote by RALPH WALDO EMERSON..

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

As i was reading some topic on internet..i came across this quote of EMERSON..and this send me deep into thinking  seriously are we living our life just to be happy???

We get up every morning freshen up..have tea or coffee..have breakfast..those who have to go to their jobs and works leave for it..those who have to finish their chores stay back and do their chores...eat lunch..do more work..in the evening go shopping..watch movie..go on a date and then eat dinner and go back to bed..and then what lying in the bed thinking what's next...what's next..and we do all this thing to live our life happily or search for happiness in our life..

"Happiness in life is of utmost important but happiness only cannot keep us happy for a long time"

Weird  sentence isn't it..but read it carefully and you will understand its meaning clearly...

"Purpose of life is not only to be happy but to be useful and then be happy"
"HAPPINESS FROM USEFULNESS"

Have you done anything useful recently???
Being useful is not a  big deal..small gestures helping others when the person is in need of help is called usefulness.
You can help a blind person cross a road..help your mom in kitchen..help your siblings in their studies..help a neighbouring aunty in carrying her grocery bag...etc..
When you are of service to other person..it gives immense satisfaction..n happiness..helping others and being useful is a very good purpose of life..

SO HAPPINESS ALONE WILL NOT GIVE YOU HAPPINESS...USEFULNESS ALONG DEFINITELY  WILL.

HARRY POTTERS MIRROR OF ERISED

ALL THE POTTERHEADS HERE MUST BE REMEMBERING WHAT IS THIS "HARRY POTTER'S MIRROR OF ERISED".
AND THOSE WHO DON'T REMEMBER IT OR THOSE FEW WHO HAVE NOT WATCHED A SINGLE MOVIE OR READ A SINGLE BOOK OF J.K.ROWLING'S VERY FAMOUS FICTIONAL BOOK SERIES NAMED 'HARRY POTTER"
THE MIRROR OF ERISED WAS IN THE FIRST PART OF HARRY POTTER MOVIE
..TITLED
"HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE".THERE WAS ONE SCENE IN THE MOVIE WHERE OUR HERO MR.POTTER IS SHOWN STANDING IN FRONT OF A MIRROR N IS SEEN WATCHING HIS DECEASED PARENTS STANDING WITH HIM..HE GETS HAPPY THINKING THAT ITS THE FUTURE..DEN HIS MOST INTELLIGENT TEACHER PROFESSOR DUMBLEDORE COMES AND INFORMS HIM THAT THIS MIRROR SHOWS DEEPEST AND THE MOST DESPERATE DESIRE OF OUR HEARTS...So in the words of MR.Dumbledore
 as he advises Harry  to ‘hold on to your dreams’ is all well and good, but there comes a point when holding on to your dreams becomes unhelpful and even unhealthy. Dumbledore knows that life can pass you by while you are clinging on to a wish that can never be – or ought never to be – fulfilled. Harry’s deepest yearning is for something impossible: the return of his parents. Desperately sad though it is that he has been deprived of his family, Dumbledore knows that to sit gazing on a vision of what he can never have, will only damage Harry. The mirror is bewitching and tantalising, but it does not necessarily bring happiness.
LIKEWISE THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT WE WISHED IN OUR LIVES AND WERE SIMPLY DEPRIVED OF DUE TO SOME OR THE OTHER REASON..so we should not hold onto it..let that thing or wish or desire go..because that one stuff is holding on us to an unobtainable thing and keeping us deprived of many more good things and blessings of life...some wishes and desires of life never get fulfilled that too have some positive reason and outcome...The mirrror of erised was beautiful at the same time bewitching..In the same way somethings are very beautiful but at the same time unattainable and may not necessarily give happiness also..

FEAR OF BETTER OPTIONS

FEAR OF BETTER OPTION or FOBO is the opposite of FOMO which is FEAR OF MISSING OUT..The terms used by experts for FOBO is satisficing.The simple explanation of the word FOBO or SATISTFICING is the person suffering from it is more than happy with choices that are good enough...these people do not want to explore the world and life...they do not want to look into the more better option of life..they think the kind of life they are living is just more than good and they dont deserve more than this.Few signs of a person suffering from FOBO are..
1-These people try to stay in their own comfort zone..they don't even want to make any attempt to bring change in their life or come out of their comfort zone..
2-these people make safe choices..they stick to the safe choices or decisions because they eventually know the outcome..they dont want to take any risk..
3-These people are obsessed with control on their life..they want everything in their life to the point of perfection
4-these people are afraid to fail..
5-they do not want to take any risk so usually avoid risk taking situations
6-they doubt their own abilities..dont voice their opinion and ideas
7-these people dont believe in following their passion..they will do what dey are told to do to be on safer side always and because they dont believe in themselves
8-These people dont want to hurt even the bad people ..they will take up the bad behaviour of a friend..of a relationship..at job..but will stay in it..because of the fear dat their walkin out may hurt others..
9-these people procastinate because they dont like making strong decisions

Despite positive thinking, FOBO can be paralyzing when you should be making full commitments in order to make something of your life. If you’re in this tough spot, it might be time to pause and take a long hard look inwards. Figure out what happiness and success mean for you, then start making plans and crafting your goals from this point.So try and challenge yourself and take risk and come out of your comfort zone and you will overcome FOBO.

BADAAM JAIPHAL BENEFITS

As the winters is finally here..one thing that i make sure to give my son is BADAAM JAIPHAL MIXTURE..(ALMOND NUTMEG)
Its one of the home remedies or gharelu nuskha which was used by our mom..grand moms..great grandmoms..great great great grandmoms...
In old times when there was no use of alopathic n homeopathic medicines our ancestors used home remedies to treat every disease n sometimes only to stay healthy..Now as the modern medicine is fast replacing the age old home remedies..there are still some age old home remedies going strong and still used in our daily lives...BADAAM JAIPHAL MIXTURE is the same..

BADAAM n JAIPHAL have got there own benefits...

Health Benefits of Almonds are...

  • Brain Booster. The nutrients in almonds are essential for baby's brain development. ...
  • Regulates Cholesterol and Diabetes. ...
  • Aids Digestion. ...
  • Strengthens Bones and Teeth. ...
  • Improves Immunity. ...
  • Anti-Inflammatory..


Health Benefits of Nutmegs are...

  • Good For Your Baby's Stomach. Giving nutmeg to your baby may prove to be beneficial for his tummy. ...
  • A Natural Sedative. ...
  • Help In Building A Good Appetite. ...
  • Helps in Curing Indigestion In Babies. ...
  • Helps In Treating Cold And Cough...

So give ur child one almond a day all year round ..like if ur child is 1 to 12 months of age..n when ur child grows increase the quantity of almond..To infants u can give it by making a paste..
And nutmeg is quite warm in nature and it should be given in very less amount like a pinch of it..

So in winters i make a paste of 2 almonds and add a small pinch or two of nutmeg powder and add honey to it for sweet taste and feed it to my son..

Its one of the best remedies for winters and keeps ur child healty..
i am a strong believer of home remedies..so before trying medicines i try home remedies..

I have been giving this  badaam jaiphal mixture to my son from last 4 years ma sha allah..n its been beneficial..but i would definitely suggest test this product for allergy in ur child..

This is a powder which u can mix in hot beverages like smoothie..coffee..earlier i mixed it with plain water..but later on i started using it in hot beverages...and i recommend it better to use in hot beverages...
Its a tasteless powder so thats the plus point like its not gonna irritate your taste buds,it doesn't give u upset stomach so thats pretty amazing..

I have reached a stage in my life where i simply want happiness in my sweet little true family and friends
I have reached a stage in my life where.....
