15 ways to be a better you

  1. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their
    journey is all about.
  2.  Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead
    invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  3.  Don't overdo. Keep your limits.
  4. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  5.  Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
  6. Dream more while you are awake
  7.  Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
  8.   Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with His/her
    mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
  9.   Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
  10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
  11.  No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  12.  Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. 
  13.  Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra
    class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
  14.  Smile and laugh more.
  15.  You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree....

style vs fashion....... a thought from the master

“Amit likens fashion to a mask, and style to beauty of countenance. Style, he feels, belongs to the literary elite, who live by their own wishes. And fashion is for the ordinary lot, who make it their business to please other people. . . . You may view a professional dancing girl beneath the awning of a public marquee; but for the first glimpse of the bride’s face during the shubhodrishti ritual, a veil of Benarasi fabric is required. The marquee belongs to fashion, the Benarasi veil--which reveals the special one’s countenance shaded by a special hue--to style.”
Rabindranath Tagore, Farewell Song
