How to make someone feel special 101!!!!

in Entertainment Time by

You have your constants. Right? People who have been with you through thick and thin. But everyone has their dark days. You wouldn’t want the one who makes you smile to frown. So here are a few ways of making someone feel special!!

1. Drop a text saying thank you and how much you appreciate them when they least expect you too. ‘I love you’ also does the trick. Or leave them a message after they fall asleep so that when they read your message first thing in the morning, they can have a good day.

2. Write a letter by hand. Nothing says you’re special more than a hand-written letter. It shows how much time and effort you can put for this person and how much they mean to you.

3. Send a bouquet of flowers at their doorstep. It is bound to refresh them and make them feel loved. And if you are taking it along with you, a few chocolates wouldn’t hurt anybody because who doesn’t love chocolates? Also, flowers and chocolates is not always a romantic gesture. It could mean a whole lot of things.

4. Take them out to their favorite place to just hang out together, to a movie, food joint, or bowling. Or for a long drive gossiping about any and everything. You can put on some music and groove to that in your car. This will uplift their mood.

5. You can also do something you’re good at like bake a cake, write a poem for them, sing a song for them or something as simple as send them a video of you saying how grateful you are for them.

Believe me, these basic ways of showing the people you love and admire of their worth will certainly be successful. Their is nothing better than making someone’s day.

 

Lost art of letter-writing

in What's Viral by

One of the interesting facts we were taught as children was pigeons used as carriers. But in today’s evolutionary world, gone are the days when we need to make deliberate efforts in order to make something happen. Technology reaches to new pinnacle points everyday. Text messages, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, E-mail has left no scope for the lost art of letter-writing. Have you ever written a letter to someone? Or received a letter?

Letters which connected people on emotional level who were separated by distance. The mother writing a letter to her son who studied in a school miles away and expecting a reply. A soldier at post surviving each day by reading, and then re-reading letters sent to him by a lover and tracing the alphabets with his finger to remember the shape of his lover’s affection. A grandparent to find a desired disruption from a monotonous life to find an ‘I love you’ letter by their grandchild and pins the painting sent by the child along with the letter on door of his refrigerator longing for another to stick beside this one. Can you fathom the agony of a teenager who waits for her birthday letters just to affirm her faith in the fact that she is still loved?

They are more that words written by hand on a piece of paper. They are an expression of personal thoughts and significance for the recipient. Meaningful efforts to strengthen relationships as well as the sincere outpour of feelings of a person who took their time to write. The familiar form of genuine words fill the recipient up with comfort on receiving a letter after a painful wait.

Try writing a letter and post it to someone you care about and see the effects by yourself. I know for sure that I would certainly love to get a letter.

Ways to be Happy!

in My Opinion by

3 things that can turn any of your day into a happy day. A day when you don’t worry about anything and with the feeling of being loved you sleep in peace. There’s just a few easy-to-do acts and trust me you day will get better.

  1. Smile: “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” was said by Thich Nhat Hanh. Smile more often and at everyone. Because last time I checked it does not hurt anyone to smile at people. Greet fellow people with a gentle smile on your face. Practice smiling to feel the joy of being satisfied with everything around you. And you won’t even notice how soon it will turn real. A smile also makes you look pretty.
  2. Count your blessings: Researchers have proven that expressing gratitude increases our happiness status. Count the blessings, all the factors which contribute towards your cheerful life. Thank your friends, mentors, teachers,parents, siblings for being so fortunate as to have them in your life. Write a thank-you note, an appreciation letter, a poem dedicated to them. Or just make someone feel special. Making loved ones happy will in turn make you happy. 
  3. Forgive: Forgive others and most importantly forgive yourself. Don’t find reasons to be sad or depressed. People first fight for attention and then whine over lack of it. It is your own choice to do as you please. Why do you let someone else determine your happiness? And even if you are genuinely hurt, forgive the person. See, only the people who mean most to you have the authority to hurt you. But do you think they’ll deliberately hurt you? Clearly, no. Talk about it instead of sulking away your time. Understanding their POV will make you realize that it wasn’t worth getting mad. 

Try these 3 acts of achieving happiness. And you will be living an optimistic life before you know it.

Remembered by good?

in What's Viral by

About half an year ago, I asked a friend ‘what is it that he wants to be remembered by?’ after reading ‘The Fault in our Stars’ I’ve asked a lot of people this. A character in that novel wants to leave a mark on this world, wishes to be remembered by the generations to come. Likewise, oh-so-casually I put this question in front of him. He took a minute to respond with ‘I want to be remembered by good’. Up until today, I didn’t get what he meant.

Why would somebody want to be remembered by something unpleasant? Everybody wants to be remembered by good. And good things are supposed to be healthy, productive and benefiting for us and our future. But that’s not what he meant to say. Who decides what’s good anyway? Sleeping late is bad. Then when do artists create art? Eating junk food is bad. Then how do we enjoy our life of mere four days on earth?

As it struck me today, he had said with such simplicity that he desires to reside in the home of good memories created with honest emotions. Only memories are left after everything is over. We are no longer friends but when I sit recollecting all that we experienced, all the impressions left by him are warm and pleasing.

“They may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel.” You have often heard this and been told an awful lot of times. And, believe me, it’s true. As I cast my mind back to all we went through I cannot recollect single conversation as precisely as the feelings I harbour. I seem to have forgotten the places we visited, the stories we shared, the looks we passed. But the surge of sentiments is still of same intensity.

Want to leave a mark? Be a good memory, a good feeling, a happy vibe and your impact will be powerful as it should be on the people you love. Be remembered by good.
