Musing on …

Filed under: My Musing Moments — Cris @ 23:28

It was another home day. And the blog has become something like a diary now! So gist of what happened today is I had another meeting. This time I succeeded in being a natural almost all the time. That’s what measures success in meetings and talks. Not what you talk or how much you talk. But how much you were being your self. 

That works in most real life scenarios. This whole being-yourself thing I mean. If a person can do that every second of his (her) life, he’s (she’s) one heck of a lucky guy (girl), that’s what! Gifted rather.

However, as much as I’d love to be that, I have to admit I am not always that. My problem is I am way too conscious. “How do I walk, how do I talk, how do I look like, how do I smile? Help, did somebody sense my existence?”

When you are so busy worrying about these immensely unimportant things, you forget about being your self. And knowing it is not going to solve things for you. But well it’s not an unsolvable thing either. But I have no clue how I could write the solution. In 2 words, help yourself. Only you can make a change, with a conscious effort! If you want to talk to people, if you want to be confident, you have to make an effort every second. It is easy to give up and rest the case – “I am a failure; I can’t”. But it takes a woman (man) to stand up when she’s (he’s) most weak and say “Gulp” – you don’t imagine it’s as easy as getting up and making a Martin-Luther-King speech one fine day! But start with gulp, you just might reach somewhere. And even if you don’t, keep trying. I have started. I have stood up and I have gulped. I just need to find out what the next step is. Till then I am going to keep gulping – that means I am not giving up.

  3. 3 Situations..

    1) When I am Right I never fear to speak up but when I am wrong , I prefer to listen..

    2) I never hesitated to be the voice of my friend when he is down.. and I will never hesitate to stand up for him and fight for his rights if ever I feel he has been denied..

    3) I love her the most coz she lets me just be myself and express my feelings as it is.. Me too.. I Love her as she is beyond conditions hence I will stand up and never Gulp when I say..”I Love Her”
