Be Yourself, Love Yourself, Enjoy Yourself


A Feeling of Gratitude

I have written and published this as my first article but learned a few ways to make the article much more effective with a few pics and a bit of casual language.

Thanks to all the hubbers who have motivated each other so lovingly. Special thanks to Hari Prasad who brought me here and Denise, who has inspired me with her technique of talking about any subtle thing so artistically. John Jodah, special love and respect for you for helping me in improving my language errors and for updating me with the technicality available here. There are many more, that won't be easy for me to express here.

Thank you all the hubbers.

I hope I will be able to present this article in a better way now.

Thanks to each and everyone who added anything to my experience.


Life is Precious

We all need to thank the almighty and show our gratitude to each and everything that has given a meaning to our life. We are blessed to have a life and should enjoy each and every moment of this, not only the dazzling light but also the dark gruesome nights as both of them have their significance.

Each and every individual is unique and everyone has got a purpose in one's life. We just need to explore and strive to give meaning to our lives. Our life is indeed precious and has been bestowed to us for a limited period, so why not consider the things which are giving it a purpose rather than the things which take us toward pessimism!

Life is too precious

To ignore and be careless

It needs love and bliss.


You are Unique

Everyone is blessed with something specific. We all are unique. What I have is all mine and I can only explore it with introspection. No one else can be a better judge of myself.

So my dear friends, whenever you have such people around you, who try to show you as a worthless or ridiculous character, just remember that "You are Unique" and what you are no one can understand in a better way than yourself.

Many shells exist

Each with a specific gift

Is there any doubt?


Be Yourself

The world that you see is nothing

but a drop of the boundless ocean,

What you know today is nothing,

It's not even a dust on the brilliant sun.

Life like you have been existed for centuries,

Various sorts of creatures came through evolution,

Microbes, insects, animals, birds, humans and trees,

They all struggled to survive for existence in procession.

Our universe is estimated to be 13.5 billion years,

And the sparkling star of ours is 4.6 billion years

Where our planet has seen 4.5 billion sets of seasons,

Humankind has lived only two tenth of a million year.

As a human of an average age of just a few years,

Is it possible to know each and everything here?

For centuries of humans research and exploration

Resulted in current knowledge of the modern civilization.


Haiku on Be Yourself

Be contented with

What you have or you achieve

-Makes life beautiful.

Concentrate on

Whatever you've been blessed with

-Keep on moving.

You cannot change world

Nor any of the situations,

Never miss this lesson.

Love Yourself

God has blessed us with everything

We need to respect each blessings,

Stop all the hue and cry for your problems,

Facing them you open the door to heavens.

As you look upon the adversities around you,

so you look the wide spread pleasing beauty too;

To reach to your world of dreams, your destination

You need to cross the thorns and rocks on your path.

Never try to emulate any of the characters or idols,

As you are unique in your own set of behaviors,

Introspect wisely to improvise the attitude of yours

Preserve your essence even in worst of the situations.

The problems were there in the past, will be there after,

Neither the earth nor the sun stopped to look after,

Time has its pace and it keeps on its motion,

You need to manage your energy for any revolution.

There are various examples from history whether we talk about Einstein, Edison, Charlie Chaplin, Dhirubhai Ambani, Sachin Tendulkar, Tom Cruise, Opera Winfrey, J K Rowling, Amitabh Bachan, or any other famous personalities, they all had to struggle and face various troubles on their way to reach the place where they are now. They could become succesful just because they kept on moving ahead with firm faith on themselves and their portential. They took every adverse situation as a challenge and thus the brave struggle helped them not only to overcome the difficult situation but also to be polished as a shining gem.

Once we love ourselves we are able to see our whole surrounding filled with love, as it is said that we see the same attributes around us what's already there is within us. Moreover, we make our world based on our perception, so why not perceive the enchanting beauty rather than looking at all the pain and troubles. Here there is no need to ignore the pain and problems but just to remember, what we can't control, why to cry for that? We have our right and potential to control just ourselves, not the people around us nor the surroundings, so why try to break the iron wall with our head if that is not going to change the wall.

Love yourself for who you are and keep on introspecting and assessing all your deeds and behaviors, this will help you to stay on a positive path all the time. You will be able to see the whole world as a beautiful place to live and devote your life to make it much more beautiful.

Haiku on Love Yourself

Spirit of yours needs

Love, respect and attention,

-The lord will be loved.

When love's true within

The whole world looks like our own,

Or else it's foreign.

To love anyone

One needs to love oneself first

-Or else love is fake.

Enjoy Yourself

We all wish to be happy and contented with our life, the gratification of which is again within ourselves only. We do know that the expectations and longings have no ending. One wish is granted and we are ready with many others in our hand. We forget the dreams fulfilled and cry for the ones that have been shattered for any reason.

As humans, we have been blessed with a conscious mind which is able to notify us what's happening around us and how we have to respond to that. Now, if we have planned for something and it is not implemented because of any external factor, are we responsible for that? There was a movie titled "Chhichore" in hindi where the father realized it, too late, after his son tries to kill himself and was on the verge of death, "We always have a plan for our success, that how are we going to celebrate it after the achievement but we forget to have a plan for our failure. We need to think on what can be done if we don't achieve what we are hoping for." As our part is just to do what's in our control, and that's the reason that anyone else, any other exam or test cannot decide how much effort we have put in that. The result itself can never tell about how much efforts we have put into a thing, how much dedicated, devoted or passionate we have been in doing our work can never be assessed by anyone else other than ourselves. So to enjoy our life to the fullest we need to enjoy each and every thing that we do in our life.

The essence of Bhagwatgeeta is " We need to do our action regardless of the result of our action; our control is on our action not on the result of the action."

So my dear friends, be who you are, love your life and enjoy the work allotted to you or chosen by you.

Best Wishes.

These are beautiful. I love that you added Charlie Chaplin as a famous personality who followed his own way to achieve success. So many people want to downplay Chaplin's achievements but I think he was a genius. I appreciate you mentioning me at the beginning. I am truly humbled and complemented. Thank you.

Anupam Mitu (author) from MUMBAI on July 01, 2020:

John, I am obliged to you for this help. I am from a culture where we consider that person as our "Guru" who puts so much of efforts to make us a better individual. You are my Guru sir. To be honest, I don't have a formal education. Whatever degree or certificates that I got is all based on the correspondence courses, so what I have learnt is all the result of my self studies. You are the first one to help me in this.

Thank you so much

Lots of Respect for you John!

Yes Hari! You are right. We really need to be very careful and vigilant not only for ourselves but also for our loved ones.

Hari Prasad S from Bangalore on June 14, 2020:

Very good article anupam.

How unfortunate that the movie actor you mentioned in the movie 'chichore' killed himself today. One has to always try to be thankful for the life's gifts but also be careful not to overstretch them.


Anupam Mitu (author) from MUMBAI on June 14, 2020:

Thank you so much John. It's a pleasure for me that you read and liked it. Be Positive & Stay blessed!
