Alok Kejriwal posted a short story on Facebook today and it’s worth sharing.

It was Humble Monk’s birthday today. A cake with 32 candles was brought in. After Humble monk had lit and blown the candles, Sensei said, “Often, the number of candles on a cake represent the number of people that have supported us, to reach that age. A 2 year old child has 2 candles on her cake; one each for her mother and father; a 90 year old man has 90 candles on his cake that represent the 90 special people that made him see that day. When you blow your birthday candles, think & thank the people that made you worthy of your special day.

I have my own philosophy on why birthdays should be celebrated and this story gives another reason to not only celebrate the birthday but be grateful to all those important people in our lives. Thanks a ton Alok.

Try something today which you have not mastered yet and you will grow fast (procrastination should not be that one thing). Allowing yourself to try something new which you have not tried before is allowing yourself to grow.

As a philosopher Socrates once said, the unexamined life is not worth living. But the opposite is also true. The unloved life is not worth examining.Swami Beyondananda

Slacking At Work?

Most people don’t mind the hard work. Infact they will love to work as hard as possible but on the things that interests them. People like to work hard on the matters that motivates them, on the matter that makes them feel alive. Work that inspires them to bring the best of them. If your work is not the one that you enjoy, does not motivate and inspire you, well then even the little amount of work will seem like hard work to you and you are not going to enjoy it.

Find the work that you enjoy doing or find the inspiration in your work.

My life (and I believe yours too) is too sweet and too short to make it a life of regrets. Live it. Period.
