Top Ten Simple Delights of Life - Colours Magazine

In March,2010; I was given an opportunity to write my ever first guest post for 'Colour's Magazine', an adoarble site reflecting all shades of life.
Here's the direct link of the guest post CLICK HERE or read below;
And an important announcement at the END of the post...

Every person has a bit of philosopher in him/her and have his/her own a way of philosophy of life to define, look and explore the experiences, feelings, and fundamentals! I have tried to ponder, express the unexpressed thoughts and define my own quote that I follow in my life.

Ever since I have been aware of these things, I accepted and implemented them in my greatest percentage of life that is lived in the daily routine. During the journey of life I discovered the courage to see the things with a complete shift of the prospective, perhaps rediscovering the creativeness in me.

I came across to simple delights through reading, talking to different aged, the chain of circumstances and from a steady upgrade of wisdom with age. Different phases and position in life gave plentiful thoughts, experiences, and fluctuation of mood and emotions which redirected me much concrete action plan to lead a life and in all a better life-style.

+ I enjoy and celebrate this change everyday. So, here I share my top ten simple delights that made a difference in my life.

  • Keep Smiling:
Smile is one and only language that world understands effortlessly. The interesting fact is that it takes 37 muscles to frown and 22 muscles to smile. So smile and uplift the aura instantly with the sparkles of joy. Perhaps, Beam” is the synonym for smile. Keep smiling for it does improve your face value. And well goes the quote, “Don’t frown. You never know who is falling in love with your smile.”
  • Never Mess up with Hair:
To your early teenage and younger hood, people have this tendency to experiment with their looks and hair comes first in the list. The more you mess up with the hair with iron rods, blow hair dryers, chemical coloring or changing frequently shampoos, the more fragile hair becomes. Do not hesitate to take help of the hair-specialist to decrease the damage done to the hair. Of course you know, something is seriously wrong, don’t you!
  • Dance as if nobody watches:
Play your favorite song and dance, at least 10 minutes. Try shaking your body while dancing if you have both left-feet. This will not only give you a chance to enjoy hearing your favorite song, but will also help you to sweat a bit to keep you up fit. I love this very cute quote “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” Rock the life! I feel enriched! Life is bountiful. And yes, I am often seen doing the flamenco and applauding my own ass. Dontcha you love to do it?
  • Respect Old:
One day you will also be old. Never forget, one day you will also have wrinkles of your face. A comfortable old age is the reward of a well-spent youth. So being a youth respect the old aged. One quote that I like to believe in is “Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.” Perhaps remember the blessing of the old people just works as miraculous wonder indeed! Go for it and respect, after all the blessing in return comes free of cost, cash on!
  • Love your Limbs:
Don’t know when unfortunate time arrives and in an accident, you lose your limbs. No matter how ugly your hands and feet looks, but they surely serve you at best all throughout the life. Whether walking, running, hugging, writing, painting or as simple as combing your hair, it’s your limbs which always helps you to facilitate your things. So honey, do take care and pamper your body! Go for pedicure and manicure, you will love that.
  • Cherish old friends:
Not everybody can be your best-friends but there can be few as in your friends circle. You must keep in touch with some of your childhood friends or school or college friends. As you grow old these people shall be there to remind you how you were in your younger days. This will help you share things with much ease. Ironically, I have the mirror as my best friend! But in today’s scenario I have added one more list of friends who are bloggers. I never met them or know them personally but few are there who know me ever since I started blogging. I can read their blogs and they read mine, we exchange thoughts in terms of comments only. Still we share a beautiful blogging bond that embraces us together.
  • Be Singular in this plural world:
Often I believe that each one is special. Yet only difference is that one is 18 and other is 19. Perhaps the difference between good and better is that little “extra effort made” to be the best. Focus on what you really want to be and want to have to capture your dreams. You must strive to use your creativity and courage that reflects your very unique individuality. We need not be perfect but just an extra effort to be perfect can make us unique. Toil to make yourself remarkable by some talent or other. I love to quote myself as “Unconventional in the willful way"; this is how I feel Singular in this plural world and each one of us has a right to feel so, isn’t it!
  • Daily Delights:
Stimulate through sensual exploration and open up to feel the little and simple pleasure of the day. Adoring the simple pleasure is a state of mind which gives a power to respect others, appreciate the nature and feel grateful to God, besides this will preserve your innocence intact in the busy life. Go for a walk and inspire yourself praising the green lush grass around, the sun rays passing their fingers through the branches, a dribble drizzle rain in the morning, orange hue light in environment just before the evening starts, dew drop on flower petal, a gentle breeze in your hair, a friend’s hugs, a phone call of a beloved, radio playing the same song that you had been playing in your head, the curtain moving due to gentle wind at the window, aroma of the cup of coffee, your baked cake coming up from the oven just perfect, standing on the roof glazing the tiny stars, ocean tides touching the feet, wondering and smiling at the same time when no one is around, receiving a surprise greeting card from your old friend or just a cute comment in your new post…the list is as long as you want to absorb the pleasure from your daily living. But my delighting pleasure is when I see my tears followed after my loud laughter and my jaws hurting so badly. These are the simple pleasure yet sprinkles some magic that turns a routine day into a great one and making you feel so blessed. Always remember, “Each day has its Moments!”
  • Learn:
Life is all about learning. One of the greatest lessons in life is learning. Make it your rule to learn something new everyday. Then use what you learn to make your life better. Learning gives us an ability to take risk in doing new things and apparently leading to creativity and innovation. New techniques, new ways and brushing up own knowledge to do things help you to see things a lot clearer and learn to rationalize a lot more. Besides, the more you learn, the more you can share. The one quote on learning I highly appreciate is, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”
  • Travel:
Travel for young is a part of learning and for the old is a part of experience. On the way of journey you learn about new people, place, customs and traditions. Traveling helps us to shape our new vision, our thoughts and mold the ideal our life. Traveling helps you to accept the change and make you more integrated in nature. There are many people who are very unenthusiastic to leave their home town and hesitate to do job or stay outside their area. They really are not aware how much they are missing. I wonder how we forget that we all live on the same planet, the earth! Never leave the opportunity to travel. Always remember the Chinese Proverb “Walking ten thousand miles of world is better than reading ten thousand scrolls of books.”

T The list to pursuit of happiness can be as long as you want to. Perhaps you can add your own humble points yet a powerful act to enhance the list and better living.

Nevertheless, I consider that not those big booming philosophy, perhaps the smallest pleasures, gentlest joys and simply way of living make a long lasting difference in creating a phenomenal journey of life. 'The choice to care or to take chance',is yours!

May you celebrate the change and Keep the spark ALive.
