Thank God Its Today.

TGIT - Thank God Its Today.
TGIF - Thank God Its Friday.
     while googling, I stumbled upon this fabulous phrase (assuming I can call it a phrase) - "TGIT." As opposed to its popular cousin phrase TGIF, TGIT oozes positiveness. The most exciting part of your job or your life shouldn't be that the work week is coming to an end but instead the opposite. Many of us, including you and I, linger through life without the palpable excitement within us. Not that am suggesting you should quit whatever you are doing and follow the hunches to attain TGIT moment but you can always spice up your life by re-adjusting the small ignored parts of your life. How about taking a walk in the new park, trying new foods and books, trying to learn something new. Get creative and color the dull portions. Day by day, many of us do what we tolerate instead of pursuing what we love - because we are scared. We often forsake magnificence for mediocrity because we think it's safer. I know because I've been there. And c'mon get real, TGIF is nothing without us making some plans. We make an effort to do different things on Friday evening (say partying hard, trying THAT new restaurant, visiting friends). With such plans comes the chance to experience new things. Hence, the TGIF moment. How about making an effort to attain TGIT moment as well.

     So tomorrow morning, as you untangle your hands from the blanket's tight cocoon with nightmarish inefficiency, I wish you shout to yourself - THANK GOD ITS TODAY!!!

Reason to Believe

     Feeling low. No worries ... Go to You Tube and start surfing some upbeat videos. Internet can inspire you in ways you can't just fathom. I just stumbled upon this super-duper kewl video which just gave me yet another reason to believe that world is indeed beautiful and full of beautiful people. When you adjust your perspective and allow yourself to embrace everything that is beautiful ... Universe responds and you get the best of everything there is. Enjoy the video (I bet you'll smile all along and prolly replay it).

*abso-happy-lutely awesome*

     I would often discard the (ever so flowing) forwarded e-mails. But, just the sheer boredom led me to one particular e-mail yesterday. I couldn't help but identify with its awesome message. Thought ... ... I might as well share it with my blog-buds to read.


Waking Up Full of Awesome


There was a time when you were five years old,
and you woke up full of awesome.
You knew you were awesome.
You loved yourself.
You thought you were beautiful,
even with missing teeth and messy hair and mismatched socks inside your grubby sneakers.
You loved your body, and the things it could do.
You thought you were strong.
You knew you were smart.
  
Do you still have it?
The awesome.
Did someone take it from you?
Did you let them?
Did you hand it over, because someone told you weren’t beautiful enough, thin enough, smart enough, good enough?
Why the hell would you listen to them?
Did you consider they might be full of shit?
Wouldn’t that be nuts, to tell my little girl below that in another five or ten years she might hate herself because she doesn’t look like a starving and Photo-shopped fashion model?
Or even more bizarre, that she should be sexy over smart, beautiful over bold?
Are you freaking kidding me?
Look at her. She is full of awesome.
You were, once. Maybe you still are. Maybe you are in the process of getting it back.
All I know is that if you aren’t waking up feeling like this about yourself, you are really missing out.
