Realizations & Reflections

Reflections – Image is Subject to Copyright of its owners

Well, after my previous post, which as i had mentioned in a few places on my Facebook that i “accidentally” published it, that taught me a lot. God taught me through it that it was His Willing that my post was published “accidentally”, i was in actual going to delay it to some date later, edit it and etc. when i wasn’t busy, just like the 7-8 other posts that i have……LOL.

This made me realize that you must let Life go the way God want us to, there’s no use in delaying, rushing, or resisting at all. you must Participate in The Moment, and give it your best, that’s the best you can do, and that’s all you have and that i am Grateful, that i learnt and realize this….then at the speed of ***SWOOOSH*** came a thought which said “what if i had realized this later, i would’ve started working on what i have to” and then Strikingly Fast at the Speed of Light came in another thought **SWOOSH** from my heart that said “God drives our lives the way He wants to & He didn’t want me to realize this before”

Remember, Never EVA let regret even come near, Thank God my heart was on a total “Shooo off you moron” mode :D!

Surely a moment for me to wink on myself ;). LOL…..well, that’s pretty much the way life goes, **Confession Mode Activated** i’ve been into resisting and delaying a lot of stuff, not only like my blog posts, even related to what i do and what i aspire ‘n’ inspire to do. All it just takes is to open your eyes : ). When God wills and the time is right, things will happen and they surely will fall in place, why worry ? why rush ?. The same day was filled with more surprises, a kind Twitter friend and the Founder of Twylah, Kelly Kim, she RT’ed my post, i was like “Whoa :D! From where did she come to know about it 😀 ?” In a happy way though, i was about to kinda jump and dance.

You can never expect how or which way life goes…OMG……ooh not to mention i had my solid “weird beard” cc. my post “Weekend Chewbies“, i had my mind screaming “Hoooray Hooray, you like a drunkard”, how worse can it get….LOL. The night about Gratefulness and then the end of the same day on the note of “Realizations” some secret lessons this day had to teach, well i also learn about “Patience”, i was gonna Publish this one too at the same day, i gave it a thought that, after my deadlines are over, i will Publish it, without thinking about or editing my words, at times i even drastically edited my posts thinking that they were too Frank or Outspoken, this right now, and Thank God for the blessing for a friend, they made me realize that this is who i am, editing my writing and what i write here which comes first from my heart, i just edit my authenticity somewhere, my message remains the same, but i intended to, you know, redraft my language thinking that some might find it to be appropriate, what i learnt, and also some one told me before, i should write for myself, i just have to write, it flows from my heart, and God wills, whatever flows from one’s heart is always liked and loved by everyone : ).

Those things and words from our heart that we edit, takes away a part of ourselves, leaving something unsaid, so never edit what comes from your heart : ).

Thank God for bringing these words to my heart “Never let the words & actions that come from your heart ever be edited”

And i am publishing this one after many days of writing the above parts, its not that what i write or something, its what God taught me, that matters. I learnt that its important that we keep God first and let things take their own course, that we have a strong will and intention to DO and God will open the doors on His own.

This year has been an Incredible Journey, with many many ups and downs, All my Gratitude to God for blessing me with growth, for showing me the right way, for guiding me, in each step of mine that i fell for giving me His hand and so much more.
Including, giving me an opportunity to to share of all of this with you, i Thank you all from all my heart, for taking out your precious time from your busy days to read my posts, to comment on them, to share them, to give your Amazing compliments and SO much more : ).

Wishing you all a Wonderful New Year ahead : ).

Gratefulness, and all that it means

Moonlight in window - Image is subject to copyright of its owners

A sleepless night, sitting on my bed, having chocolate, under the moonlight. Usually i tend to get pretty fuzzy when i am not able to sleep or if i don’t get sleep. This night, well it was maybe something else. I sat, stood, moved around, had something…..i felt blessed, although i was not able to sleep and i was having a “head-banging” headache, nothing stopped me for sitting under the moonlight and admiring God’s created Nature. At times, how we do forget to look around and apppreciate our blessings, even though we have so many, we tend to turn blind and blind folded by something called “Ungratefulness” as “Gratefulness” is a parent of virtues, the exact vice-versa goes for “Ungratefulness”, its when people become “ungrateful”, we disregard, forget and appreciate all that we have and have had. I Thank God for keeping me away from that and making me realize that Hey, if He didn’t want it, i wouldn’t be awake this night writing this post laying on my bed w/o even looking at my laptop

If He didn’t want, i wouldn’t even be on this bed……aaaand thats just the beginning…..how many times in a day we just stop everything, look around, realize and Thank & be Grateful for all that we have, when do we pause and say “Hey God, sorry for being a jacka** and for any of my actions that may have saddened you, and Thank you for everything” and you smile from your heart and continue with what you were doing. Remember folks, Life is just too damn short, so live each moment, with the magical seed of Gratefulness in your heart, nurture and care for it, by remembering it, which will just make you realize, that just how beautiful really is life. While writing this i did get reminded of my kind Dreamer friend Deanna……and also the friend i met in the mall cc. my post “People and Probabilities“. Could this all ever have been poossible if i hadn’t carried this parable of Gratefulness which later my eyes were opened to. “Carpe Diem”.

Be Grateful - Image is Subject to Copyright of its owners

As i heard in a Tv serial, which means “Seize the Moment” P.S. that’s the only word/thing i liked in that serial….LOL…..back to the point, (Hell, i got distracted pretty damn fast…..lol) yep, so as the words say “Seize the Moment”……..you see, its just the present moment that we’ve got to be Grateful, okay at this point i was Grateful about that calculator/typewriter like-ish sound that my phone was making on tapping the keys,as my eye lids started drooping and i remembered of some Prose i studied years ago in Grade 9 & 10. Isn’t that just FAB, all of a sudden all of these coming back, that put me to thought, what if i had been “the usual fuzzy boy/man” ??? I don’t even know if i’d have cherished all of the sweetness, at this point it was 5 am on the 10th of December, this seemed more like a diary, the way is was going and i noticed how i placed it all in past tense and again went back to a FAB literature teacher called Mr. Rose we had back in school.

We can’t even imagine where Gratefulness can go

Remember, somethings in life can never be traded, like memories, we all have our own, like our personal diaries to look back, learn and cherish them……i noticed how my post was flying towards many many words.

Life, broken into moments as the "grates" - Image is subject to copyright of its owners

If you notice, “Gratefulness” can be broken up in two words “Grate” & “fullness”…..this reminded me of how we can Grate a carrot or cheese, when we do that, each piece then, as a result of that “grating” has an identity of its own, same as our lives, which when these “grates” of Each Moment of our lives are put  together makes it whole. So why not Live each bit of this Life’s moment “grate” with “fullness”, which someday we all will look back and see at before we leave this temporal presence. So, what are you grateful for, at this moment, what comes to your mind, i am Grateful right now for at least being alive…………..Gratefulness is like a river, the greatness and love of which can fill and quench the thirst of one’s heart.

You know, at times we all tend to get fuzzy, that’s human fuzziness at times…..lol….when that happens (God forbid), just don’t forget to be Grateful, close and open your eyes then, feel the difference as things seem calmer, so does your heart :-). Begin that moment with a smile, Life may not always give a second chance, so just grab this very one, and change your life from this moment.

Well i kinda ended this post @ 5:15 am……yawwwwn…….Hope you liked this little journey of mine, i know, i know, i haven’t been upto blogging much lately these days because of stuff………..well…..stuff….LOL….Hope you like this post and please do let me know so by your loving comments below.

Clarity, Perception, Stress & other Mixtures in our Daily Lives

[tweetmeme source=”staticulator” only_single=false http://wp.me/p1lE4S-a0 ]

Clarity, Perception & Stress (Image is Subject to Copyright of its owners) Well & the collage is mine ;D!

Another day in my life, struggling with sickness and the load of stuff that I had to do as the beginning of a new week came by, cold, minor food poisoning, breakdowns/metldowns, name it! God, it was like an Ordeal,………as I always say, “Each experience in Life, whether soft or hard comes with a learning for your growth ~ M. Faizan “…..well this had something new to teach.

I had to rush to a certain number many of places and that too each task with a time constraint…..woo hoo….now that’s quite a challenge. What I learnt was that, I had to stop taking any sort of stress/tension about all these tasks to complete, all I had to do is just focus on one of them , while not loosing focus on my health and the current task at hand.
I did hear a lot that “When you wish for something from your heart, the universe conspires it to give it you” well yeah, that’s exactly what happened, I was rushing between places and it so happened that I didn’t even had to wait for a single light, really! I was like “Whoa!” what’s happening, because usually when I rushed to multiple places I used to get ALL the lights on the way, I used to say “GEEZ Man! Why my at this time when I m gettin’ late….God!” and I started honking and trying to find a way out and God! That used to be nuts…..seriously!

Clearing your focus (Image may be subject to copyright of its owners)

I learnt that when you focus your mind towards one task at a time, your clarity increases substantially, your mind out of everything else, and aligning with your Heart and Soul, its beneficial for your body too, in reduces the stress levels, you are able to figure out alternative ways and solutions to achieve your task, your speed increases greatly, it reduces confusion and the mess that can happen, believe me, when I tried to rush with my mind in stress and a whole lot of things, I’ve had accidents, which is not good. Its like your mind clicks open, and wow, there’s a Rush of Calm and Peace, even if what you’re dealing with is a lot of work, and after those all minutes and moments of focus, when you’ll look at your achievement, you’ll see your beauty, creativity and light reflecting in that, making me understand, that

Clarity is such an important part of our lives, it’s like the windscreen of a car, if its blurred, unclear and etc. there are chances of the wrong things happening. Pertaining, our Perception. Its how we look at things that matter, if at that time I thought “This is a mess”….. I m quite sure it would’ve been an Ordeal for me to make it to all these places that too in perfect time, keeping your Calm active and running, and being centered even though so many things that happen around, that’s what matters.

Keeping your Perception focused at one goal at a time, putting your 110% into it, with all your heart & mind. The power of achievements that we have when we combine our hearts & minds is amazing.

Breathe......(May be subject to copyright)

Something that helps the most in times of stress…..Breathing…..close your eyes, only one long breath, with all your heart and soul, you’ll feel the energy around you, how in those seconds you breathe a million molecules and how your lungs convert them into oxygen, scientific, but now combine this with your Soul, you’ll feel a Deep immense energy running through you and energizing you.

The heart’s sound must always be active in us, which is Peace, and indeed it is 100% possible to achieve that Peace all 24 hours a day, I almost suffered a breakdown/meltdown this weekend, I was so stressed, and all it took was…………. just one opening drive to help me see what I was doing wrong, Indeed, Life’s Blessings comes from some of the most unexpected mediums.

We can multi-task, the power that we have to do things, its wonderful beyond words, so is our capability of achieving them and keeping up a positive attitude showers in the Love, Dedication and Sincerity in no matter what you do :).

Clarity........(Image may be subject to copyright)

When we take our Clarity and Perceptions to another level in combination with our Hard work, sincerity and dedication, we go beyond, we Love what we do, then the time that we spend doing, it doesn’t matter, nor do we take stress, as a result of which we are able to listen to what our body has to say, and step aside when our body sends the message. Like me, Hell i was writin’ this post yesterday, but then my eyes started drooping and the head started to spin i was like “whoa! that feels new……LOL”….i really mean the beginning something like that, and your mind continuously blinks “May Day! May Day!”…..hahahaha.

Well, that’s me :D! Very very human, with my own set of Awesomies and “GEEZERS!” in my daily life, with roller coasters, as i’d said in my post Challenges as we know Them I flow with the time, fighting against it is not the solution, this new De-stressing Wonderfully Awesome New Experience by the Graciousness of God has taught me a LOT more.

And as i’d written in a quote a long while ago and was reminded by someone who said the similar thing : Every moment is a new beginning, a new journey, observe the power of each moment and see your present mold your future ~ M. Faizan.

I Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for reading and commenting on my posts, i read each of them and its your Love, Enthusiasm & Response which makes me want to write a lot more……Another Thank You….with my hand on my heart.

The Legacy of the Doctor : Feat. a Favorite Tv Show – Doctor Who

The Doctor Who Title - Image source : Google Search (Image is Subject to the Copyright of its Owners)

Just one of these sick days that i m going through, i remembered some episodes of Doctor Who a Science Fiction Tv show, well, memories & fun as my mind plunged into thoughts. In the recent Season of Doctor Who featuring a new or as fans know the Eleventh Doctor, played by Matt Smith. At first in a doubt as he was stepping into the shoes of a most honored show which began in 1963 and is still going on (Believe me!) and great character played by 10 excellent actors before him.
Undoubtedly, Matt being the youngest actor ever who’s played the role of the Doctor, won the hearts of the fans by his charm.

A little background into The Doctor :- He’s a 900year old Time Traveler (humanoid species known as Time Lord) from the planet Gallifrey who has spent his time traveling the universe in his Time Traveling machine : The TARDIS and protecting Planet Earth and its inhabitants. Wisdom, wittiness, strong will, compassion, kindness, intelligence just being a few of his traits. A man of Peace, he is always a child from within.

Matt Smith as The Doctor : Image is subject to the Copyright of its owners

And that role was perfectly played by Matt Smith. We saw moments of fun where he dips fish fingers into custard and moments where he uses his much needed intelligence and wisdom. And even at places proving that although having a younger body, his wisdom is that of a 900year old man, and the expressions, the dialogue delivery and acting by Matt, i must say, i m truly stunned. After the amazing impression the Tenth Doctor (David Tenant) had left in the minds of fans, i thought it would be very difficult for someone to take his place, but Matt handled it, Amazingly.

Two traits which i found most remarkable about The Doctor are him always being the child he is within and his Fearlessness. No matter the how big the challenge would’ve been, with these as a combination and keeping that witty and silly smile of his, he always finds a way out of any unexpected situation he has thwarted into. It really makes me smile to see those moments and have been really fascinated by them.

I find that real for Life too.

One of things i enjoy is learning more about a character, understanding its traits and Wow! i must say people know how to make them so inspiring. I am indeed inspired by the character of The Doctor. So those moments of wonder and fun watching this incredible show are indeed good.

Indeed being a child at heart is a most wonderful thing about life, the portrayal of The Doctor shows it how.  Being a man of Peace The Doctor never uses a weapon, but relies on his Love, wisdom, intelligence, fearlessness, his other amazing traits and his little Sonic Screwdriver [More in the Infographic below], by which he indeed leaves a wonderful impression on those who he has always helped, they remember him for his child like kindness and innocence and his empowering wisdom. Even at the most unexpected and shocking things thrown at him, he breezes through them with a smile which = Positive Attitude and about which i am sure is the solution to all the problems :D!

The story of The Doctor tells us that how much in a life time even after going through so much, we should & must always be the Child within us, Smile and Always be Shiny Positive, that’s when we find a true way out. Always being Excited, Enthusiastic, Crazy, Fun Loving, Joyful and Loving about whatever and however we do it. That things happen in life, and also they come and go, Life is all about Enjoying and living it to the best and Happiest in each of the moments. In the episode “Big Bang” when The Doctor is ready and is sacrificing himself and has barely any hopes of coming back, even in that Bleak moment, he’s shown to have hope, that ray of light within his heart that he will be out of it and he will come back and guess what, he does. This tells us how important Hope is in our lives, even though at times by the circumstances it may “seem” that there is none.

I like to get some great/good inspiration from some amazing things that i watch/read and it is indeed wonderful an amazing :D!

I hope you all enjoyed this little post, still been very busy and having a cold, hoping to be back at the soonest :). Thank You so much for taking out your time to read it and comment here, i end my post with an Amazing Infographic by  Bob Canada . Do let me know what you think about it in the comments below :).

Weekend Chewbies

[tweetmeme source=”staticulator” only_single=false]

Well, its weekend and I m off ‘work’ for a while, and its during these times I end up doing lots of crazy things, by crazy I mean something that don’t make sense at all. I’d written a quote of my own : An idle mind is not a devil’s workshop, but its his industry. You can explain I was able to chalk it up to a small scale industry ;D!!! Now this is what ran through my mind.

I lazed out like I’ve not slept, yeah bcoz on the Friday night till 3:15am I was lolling around Social Media and watching the game trailer for Batman : Arkham City, that was better, there are much worse things to do than that, like counting sheep ;D! And I peacefully woke up at 10:30 am this morning and THANK GOD the “Mornin’ Crow Alarm” didn’t arrive at my window at 5:13 am in the morning, and the only alarm on the whole planet that wakes me up at 5 am.

I somehow looked like this. Found via Google Search (Image is subject to the copyright of its owners)

Once I’d woken up early, I’d got dark circles under my eyes, due to insomnia. I looked like zombie with my hair all dredged up and making horn like shapes, so I stood behind the curtain of my window with a stick “Let that ‘kawing’ creature come, I m gonna scare his feathers off”

One of my very favorite things being growing a slight weirdly unkempt beard, with a frown like that of a true honor justice cop, yeah, at times I love to feel and be like a shady character, it amaAAAAzing to see people giving you the weird look, which they don’t normally do when you appear to be normal……hee hee. WoW!!!

Me in the Batman Cowl - Age - 5yrs

I did feel like a ninja Batman………ooh Batman’s a trained ninja, so pretty well ;D!!! They feel you’re weird, not only weird, I mean Willy Wonka weird, I never knew changing my look at bit would cause that kinda reaction, one of my friends ended up asking,” did your girlfriend run away or something or she ditched you ?”, I said “wha?? I don’t have one yet” phew!!! And I thought my mind was the devil’s industry.

I can't believe i had such fears....LOL!! Found via Google Search (Image is subject to the copyright of its owners)

Clowns……by clowns I got reminded of a Coulrophobia or fear of clowns which I had when I was between 5 & 7, I could give the credit of it to a Tv serial which showed a murder clown with magical powers & stuff and couldn’t be killed so easily, he used Voodoo and everythin’ else and a bunch of 7 morons who knew how to kill him, God, it scared the hair of my scalp. And in Dubai, where I spent the greater part of my childhood, there was an automated clown in a mall which started laughing when you went near it, I was scared, whenever I wanted to pass through the alleys I would go around that thing, as a fact that mall had 2 automated clowns, the other the climbed up and down a rope from the top to lower level of the mall and this one’s still there. A Major CROWNIES!!!! these people are so stinkingly nostalgic. I used to day dream of the clown attacking the mall folks and me being the hero and saving the damsels in distress, Thanks to God i found better career options :P!!!

When I was 17, well I was & still am a fan of comic book characters, I tried sporting a goatee like that of Green Arrow :D!!! And that too I’d done it myself, I was so proud and then as my Mom sees me “You look 30 or something!!! Get it off or a young lady might just end up calling you ‘Uncle’ ” I had that weird “Wha ???” look on my face because I’d thought that looked cool ;D!!!. Well so there it was for a single night.

And finally i started my Playstation 3 after almost 6 months, had probs. with it & work stuff mainly and a scene while replaying of one of my favorite games Uncharted 2 put me into a series of amazing & incredible thoughts which i may put up in a blog post.

I introduced myself to you amazing folks as a daydreamer, hope you enjoyed this little journey of my mind from the way i see the world from my inner childish self. And i also recommend that always feel and also be the child inside of you, it makes you really very happy, you’ll always be your 100% self, motivated, inspired, enthusiastic, excited and happy to learn something more or the other out of all the experiences and you can Love to your heart’s best when you Love like a child.

Concluding with one of my quotes : Love like a child, from your heart, beautifully, blissfully, honestly, truly, fearlessly, selflessly and endlessly ~ M. Faizan

P.S. Everything that i’ve written here is the truth and has been a part of my life :D!!!

Thank you So much to all of you for inspiring me to write more :D!!!

A Break to a Journey of Discoveries – I of III

[tweetmeme source=”staticulator” only_single=false]

A Journey ~ Found via Google Search (Image is subject to the copyright of its owners)

{I first Thank God for everything he’s given me, also for all of my amazing readers here for their amazing & wonderful love & support who always supported me and inspire me to write more and a heartfelt Thanks to you all.}

Recently, as many of my readers know, I left for a break to another country i.e. my ex-hometown Dubai. To take out sometime for myself and to focus more on my work. I had been there quite a many times but this truly was one of the best breaks I’ve had in my life till now.  Well, but it came out to be a journey in which I discovered a lot more my true self.

Quite surprising, but that was one of the main reasons I left.

Had been through a lot, it seemed like just the right time to leave.

Until the last year, I was at the top of my work, excelled in every thing that I took up. But then all of a sudden I saw myself going down, living below the expectations of others but the most of all, myself.

I was myself with the others, but not my work. My work life was becoming a disaster, I’d stepped into the territory of laziness & time wastage, a LOT of it. I had lost interest in my work, I moved away from doing what I had to the most, it was a ruin. I had that miserable feeling running through me, all the time, I was becoming distracted, my priorities were haywire, people close to me started to see a change in me and how I was dealing with my work. It was a mess.

I had tried so many things, those motivations and inspirations lasted only for a short while, then I was back to it. It lasted for almost a year.

It was like my soul from the inside wanted something else, but my mind was going in the wrong direction.

But then something happened, Some wonderful people influenced my life. And some of them being quite special.

Okay I know there must be “eyebrows raised” ^  ^….LOL!

Yes, yes! there you go, you guessed it right, there’s a woman to it *wink*……hee hee ;D!, its someone whom I call a Sister, my elder Sis. Although not by blood, she’s but closer to me than one, she me helped in bringing out the real me, the person who I really should be for my work life. She never saw me as a mess or a disaster, which i thought i was, but looked into me and understood me for who I really am, making me realize that the reason I was feeling all the misery was that I was hiding my true self, this isn’t me, I m not a disaster, I don’t waste my time, people in my line of work know me for it. They were also shocked to see me going down this hole. It seemed like it was unending, well that was until God sent me her ;D!!!

What i do is something that i love doing and am great at it, its just what i want and would’ve wanted, Thank God :D!!! It wasn’t like it was something i didn’t love doing, that was main thing that came to the mind, and it bugged me too. But it just felt like my love for it had hidden away somewhere, in some deep dark corner of my heart and i never knew why.

My Sis taught me that what I felt and was happening around me was due to me not being my real person. I had embraced this new person who I really wasn’t for my work and certain small parts of my life and that’s what was holding me back from using my true potential. She made me understand the greatness, importance and relevance of becoming myself. She made me realize who i really am. She trusted me, my goals seemed crazy, but her faith and confidence in me, it felt just so great, so always said & says that i can do it, i have the ability to, no matter what the circumstances were. She told me she’d love to tell me a lot more, but she really wanted me to discover it myself………….more of what i learnt, how it made & inspired me into who i really am for my work and a cocktails of emotions, continued in A Break to a Journey of Discoveries – II
