My Misfortune

My misfortune always seems to take dinosauric proportions! Life always seems to do me an unfair turn. I always seem to be at the recieving end of the stick. When I see people around me, they all seem happier, wealthier, healthier and better off in all ways than I. Lost in that moment, I get despondent.

However, as I reflect at that moment, I find that even in that misfortune there is a lot to be thankful for. There are a lot of people around me who have more critical needs and greater sorrows than I can ever imagine. As I do a flashback of my past, I realise that every tough situation had brought out unknown reserves in me that I never imagined existed. I gained expertise and evolved. I found opportunities that I had'nt seen before. I reached out to people whom I had lost in my climb up but who were important to me. I found new ones who added colour to my life.

Well! Its time to dust myself and carry on with my journey. Maybe the path is new, co-travellers are unfamiliar - yet the journey remains beautiful because I went through this misfortune.

After all, I am who I am because I went through this experience!

What this blog is all about....

Ive been reaching out to young people through my work as a behavioral trainer, all of 17 years. Issues have always been about their emotional well being and how well they are able to connect to themselves and people around them.

Somewhere in this journey, I have realised that there is a deep connect between feeling comfortable with yourself and how evolved you are as a spiritual being. I am not talking religion here - After all, any religion is about connecting within and living a value system that ensures that you help others flourish as you grow within. To me ultimately, life is about living on our terms - in the process, have we added value to this world? Is the world a better place because I passed through it? Have I been able to ensure that my thought, word and deed are in sync with each other? If yes, then I am who I am - no regrets!

This blog is about sharing my experiences and beliefs through notes, stories ..- in the hope that I begin a dialogue with people I know and dont know. In the process, probably, we all evlove and become better spiritual human beings. At least, we will know where we are, where we have to go and how to get there!
