Cheer Up. Life Is Beautiful!09:16
Have you ever felt like all the happiness in you has been sucked up? Like a Dementor has given just you its deadly kiss and you are slowly dying on the inside...
Life plays you a lot of times. Sometimes it's just because of what we did in the past which haunts us today and there are those times too when you sit there wondering why the world around you is breaking down in spite of no wrong deed from your side. There's a cliff, dark and dingy.. a small push and you will be charred forever.
If you do feel so, first close your eyes and suck in a deep breath. Think of a fantastico memory.. avoid thinking about the certain someone or something which is bothering you. Think of something different and cheerful. Navigate your mind until you find that fantastico memory which will bring back that smile.
Think of the good old days when your life was not so messed up. If you can't navigate your mind much than just think of something funny.. Like Arvind Kejriwal In a Salwar Kameez with a shawl exercising with a broom? Or maybe PM Modi wearing a frock and doing the lungi dance. Just run your imagination wild.. think of your first crush. The sweet feeling of falling for her/him.
Think about your Mom. Try imagining her smile.
Think of Bollywood. Any funny character you liked? Recall the comedy films you have watched and the best scenes from them. Now smile.
When you think you can finally handle it, go back to your problem. Think about what went wrong. Think of how you can fix it. If the situation is something which you can never fix back then remind yourself that it's NOT the end of the world! Promise yourself to never get in this situation ever again. This is the best you can do. Staying positive in your gloomiest of times is a real challenge and it is this challenge you have to bag! Remember that it's just the matter of time. Ups and downs are a part of life and all you have to do is give it some time and those wounds will heal eventually. Time has the power to heal so thinking that this is the end of the world and taking grave steps is wrong.
Tell yourself " I Love You." let it come from the heart. Put everyone else on a hold, it's just you who matters now. Get a little selfish. Connect with your own heart and remind yourself how much you love yourself.
Now get up, cheer up, get a bounce in your step and go win the world!
Remember... No Dementor can harm you if you can conjure up a perfect Patronus. Don't let one ruined day ruin your entire life. Just cheer up as life is beautiful and your smile only beautifies it more! :)
