Every kind of addiction causes some harm to our sanity. When you think about addiction, you might think of alcohol or drug addiction, but there are countless other forms of addiction you could be addicted to, work, sugar, video games, drama or even a toxic relationship. No matter what your compulsion is, it will always be a barrier to your happiness. Addiction creates an insatiable appetite, the void can never be full since your desire for the object of your affection is limitless. You’ll never feel that sweet satisfaction.
Addiction only leads to a cycle of relentless hunger and dissatisfaction. To make things worse while you’re stuck in this never ending sequence of discontent, your addictions saps the energy from all other areas of your life like hobbies, passions, relationships or self-care. Recovery is a long hard road. It may be one of the most challenging experiences of your life, but it can be also the most rewarding if you want to be happier. Think about dropping your addictions.
Few lines i wanna talk about toxic people. There will always be toxic people but they don’t need to be in your life. Although it may be easy to become stuck in a pattern where you pour your emotional energy and attention into a person you despise. Letting go of this malicious attachment will reduce stress and increase happiness. Imagine if you transformed all the negative energy you give an enemy into positive energy that you give to yourself and your loved ones. Your life would become even more full of experiences and emotions surrounding the people who truly matter in your life.
Getting rid of toxic people will make more room for happiness.
Just as a farmer plants seeds and expects a period of harvest, whatever you sow- you will also reap. Whatever you do unto people will eventually be done unto you. When you choose to treat people right, you will also discover they often reciprocate & behave more positively towards you too. It may take time as seeds often take time to grow, but your words/actions/thoughts eventually always yield their harvest. They may return to you as love, money or happiness.
You should therefore be kind & courteous to people irrespective of circumstances. Remember your actions or even your reactions will comeback to you somehow. As you sow, so shall you reap.
Be silent or let thy words be worth more than silence. The oldest shortest words: “YES & NO” are those which require the most thought.
Happiness is not something readymade, it comes from your own actions.
– Dalai Lama XIV

No matter how many cities I have switched for education & employment, only two things that excite me about a new place are it’s food & people. I am an affluent advocate of farmers market & butcher shops since forever. The main reason behind it is my focus on fresh greens & whole animals. Everybody knows I want to retire in my thirty, but nobody knows I have a huge urge to start organic farming before starting my family. I know everything about the pesticide/antibiotics injected vegetables/meats, I will hate myself to serve that to my next generation. Sometimes my friends find it disgusting when I cut whole chicken/fish/rabbit/duck/turkey in my kitchen, but that makes no sense to my eyes. I love my LIFE little more than normal crowd, food is the most important part of a healthy living. My take on food is; “NUTRITION FIRST, TASTE NEXT”, that’s the reason I eat almost half kilo of salad consisting of raw/semi boiled green vegetables & some roasted meat. I love my weekend cheat days though, can’t live without pizza & cheesecake.😋
One can not think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.

Sometimes you don’t get two shots. Sometimes it’s do or die kinda situation. Don’t know why I see everyday like that. I wake up to a purpose & sleep tired after fulfilling that purpose. Yes I am someone who sees happiness in material possessions & the beauty of nature. My bank account & my health are my only two priorities. You will never get another chance to live this life/identity again. No matter you are happy or sad, time is ticking. Ask yourself how you spent your whole day before hitting bed?! Learn to live your purpose & find happiness within.
I have said it before & saying it again; Nothing in the world is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. SO FETCH YOUR GOALS, MILK YOUR SKILLS & SLEEP PEACEFULLY WITH A SMILE.
ACTION may not always be happiness, but there is no happiness without action.
The worst IRONY OF 21ST CENTURY is: when people want to make money on internet, they start selling the idea/seminar/courses related to “HOW TO MAKE MONEY ON INTERNET”.😂 Some do the same in the name of STOCK MARKET, REAL ESTATE OR SOME SHITTY BOGUS APPS/SERVICES. I have a huge hate towards these fraudsters disguised as mentors/internet gurus. Seriously!!! I mean, what’s in that stupid head while planning such niche. Let me answer: “Let’s get in while the going is good. Right??” This blog is active since past 4+ years. There is one thing I never talked about is “HOW TO MAKE MONEY!”. That’s the only topic I hate to talk/read/see.
Your body hair, ego, goals & happiness; all are your responsibility. First find your purpose which will help you set goals. Life is not what you live on weekends, stay disciplined whole week. Goals require forward planning & execution, same applicable for your health. Your view, opinion, obligation, enthusiasm, intrest & attitude towards life are not same as mine. Your name isn’t TAP. What worked for me will never work for you. Learn to serve some respect to your identity.
If you are active & feeling “How fast/busy life is!!”, I swear there is no better feeling than that. Learn to be happy with it. But if you are pretending being busy because you are just lazy, you too know you are nothing but just another boring person. Being optimistic is good, but that matters nothing without being real.
Problem in most people is, they are ok being OK towards everything wrong with own life. How can you value someone when he/she isn’t valuing him/herself!?!
