I don’t believe in coincidences. Do you?
“Enjoy, revel and relish each and every moment for what it is.
You will never be getting back these few moments of your life.”
– The Asian Destination
A lot of the time we wish away our lives:
-when we’re young, we long to be older.
-When we’re teens, we yearn to be at university.
-Whilst at university, this syndrome kicks into reverse.
We suddenly want to return back to childhood, to a time when worries were as bad as learning to tie shoelaces.
Each and every day is meant to be cherished for what it is. Each obstacle we face is supposed to teach us certain lessons, so embrace the lessons and learn.

We’re all experiencing life in our own unique ways. Each and every one has a story tell, be brave enough to let the world hear it.
Have you ever felt like you’re not good enough? Maybe you felt like you weren’t good enough for someone, academically or just worthy enough to live your own dreams.
Well, you know what? That’s absolutely false.
For a long time I felt like I wasn’t good enough because I wasn’t studying in medical school, like a good, typical Indian. However much my parents assure me otherwise, there’s a small part of me that still believes it to this day.
Today is worth living, for your own dreams, not someone else’s. You start and end this world alone, in possession of one precious gift called life. It is up to you what you do with it; whether you choose to live life for yourself or not, the time will pass anyway. So isn’t it just worth making it YOUR best life?
We are always taught to be kind, thoughtful and selfless – to put others before ourselves.
However, how often do you look after yourself the same way you would look after a friend or loved one? Why is it always easier to encourage other people to eat healthy, go to the doctor, take time for themselves yet so hard for us take our advice?
Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in trying to help everyone else, become too involved in fixing the problems of other people, rather than focus on own needs first.
That’s not to say we should not care about others, of course we should.
Sometimes, though we must make sure that we’re not trying to avoid tackling our own problems by helping out everyone else first.
A good example is the safety advice on aeroplanes in case of emergency: ‘Put your own oxygen mask on before you can help others’. Without your own mask & your own well-being, you will be unable to assist others, as much you try to.
So Today: When you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you are not saying ‘no’ to yourself. – Paul Coehlo
