Quote

Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. You have to know that you’re a good person and a good friend.

What’s meant to be will end up good and what’s not- won’t.

Love is worth fighting for, but sometimes you can’t be the only one fighting. At times, people need to fight for you. If they don’t, you just have to move on and realize what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you.

Keep Alive your Gut or Intuition Feeling

Have you ever been in a situation where your “gut feeling” told you one thing, but your rational mind said another? If you went with your brain rather than your intuition, there’s a good chance you ended up regretting your decision. Your intuition is the subconscious leader that many people fail to give proper respect to. But learning to listen to this internal compass could help you make better decisions and live a more fulfilling life.

“I define intuition as the subtle knowing without ever having any idea why you know it,” explains Sophy Burnham, bestselling author of The Art of Intuition, to The Huffington Post. “It’s different from thinking, it’s different from logic or analysis … It’s a knowing without knowing.”

It’s unconscious reasoning, the guidance that compels you to turn left when all signs may be pointing right. It’s often the whisper inside that can lead you to the best results possible, if you will just learn to let go and give it a chance.

Intuition is commonly associated with New Age mysticism or a metaphysical way of thinking, but it doesn’t have to be so. Our intuition was here long before anyone even gave a word to it, and it will be here long after other fad words expire.

“There is a growing body of anecdotal evidence, combined with solid research efforts, that suggests intuition is a critical aspect of how we humans interact with our environment and how, ultimately, we make many of our decisions,” said Ivy Estabrooke of the Office of Naval Research, who is investigating the power of intuition which has helped troops make important and quick decisions during combat.

Whether it’s deciding which job to take, which direction to turn when you’re lost, or how to handle a conflict in your family, intuition sometimes knows better than the rational mind. The problem is that many of us have buried that little voice so deeply within, we have a hard time hearing or feeling where it is guiding us.

The good news is that your intuition is still there, you merely have to learn to hear it again.

To better listen to your intuition, try:

1. Meditation: Spend time in silence, simply listening.
2. Commune with nature: Aim to get at least sometime outside every single day.
3. Creativity: Tap into your internal artist by drawing, writing, painting, or making music.
4. Learn to listen: In general, listen to friends, families, silence, and yourself.
5. Be body conscious: Learn to appreciate the little signs and signals from your body, when it tells you it’s tired, joyful, in need of love, or getting sick.
6. Let go: Warm up to the idea that you don’t have to control everything. Life is going to happen whether you overthink it or not. Relax.
7. Stay positive: A 2013 study in the journal Psychological Science found that being in a good mood boosted participant’s abilities to make intuitive calls in a word game. So smile!

Working on becoming more intuitive requires you to adopt healthier habits and a healthier mindset. These are things that are good for your mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing, no matter your end goal. And if cultivated regularly, they could lend themselves to better decision making and more happiness overall.

Movie Review: My Mother the Mermaid (2004)

Hey you amazing guys there, Finally today I was able to complete this beautiful movie My Mother the Mermaid (2004) “Ineo gongju” (original title). I had an on and off relationship with this movie for more than 6 months, I guess. The plot of the movie kept my interest fueled for such a long time while I could never dedicate myself to watch it all in one go. So lets review it.

Though the movie starts with a beautiful Korean girl Na-young who works at a post-master just like her dad and lives with her dad and a very harsh and sometimes unbearable mother who does not consider her husband worth a penny. Na-young sympathises with her dad and feel bad for the way her mother treats him and often comes to his rescue as well. She even leaves her very caring orphan boyfriend quoting she has never seen a happy moment between her parents and so she believes she can never marry and be a good wife or mother.

One day when Na-young’s mother curses make her father leave home, she visits the home village of her mother and witnesses that her mother was a very innocent girl at her teenage when she met her father who was working as a postman in that village some 30 years ago. Finally in the end of the movie, its shown that despite of some abusive and non caring attitude, her mother still loved her father very much.

Thats all, Na young finally marries too and has a beautiful daugher. Through the entire way, we see many beautiful scenes of some Korean island, some nice dialogues, beautiful faces, nice acting but not what the director promised us to in the starting of the movie. No mention at all anywhere what lead her mother to be so brutal and why her father could not progress at all.

Finally if you just want to pass some nice time with some beautiful sceneries, acting and direction, go for this movie OR you can just relax and search for a more meaningful movie.

Verdict: Two and a half stars. Not a flashy film.

If you’re going to fall in love

If you’re going to fall in love –
Don’t fall for the decorated “Me.”
That I prepare every morning
To face the world, to survive another day.
A fake smile, a white shirt, jeans and cologne.
Don’t fall in love with that false persona
That I carry to impress, to climb
The steps of achievement they’ve defined for me.
I’m not exactly the spring you’ve waited for.
I can be the deadly summer.
If you’re going to fall in love –
Fall for my weaknesses.
My jealousy, my impatience, my indecision.
My moods, my resistance, my numbness.
My inner child that seeks attention.
who can be restless – giving you a hard time.
Love me, for them if you can.
I’m not exactly the spring you’ve waited for.
I can be the dry Winter.
Fall in love with the wall I create.
From a self-perceived maturity and melancholy.
Fall in love with my scars, my wounds, the blood stains.
All the under-achievements, all the complexities.
That make me – imperfect. That make me – “me.”
Love me, for them if you can.
If you’re going to fall for me,
Fall in love with every fragment of me.
Decent, wicked, ugly, glorious – I’m a little bit of all.
Fall in love with my shortcomings, my sleepless nights,
My journey to madness – my write ups.
If you can- fall in love with the naked me.
Real, unpretentious, raw.
Or my dear, don’t love me at all.

Flashy Film: Born on the fourth of July reminds something important for everyone

Flashy Film

Usually when time or schedule does not allow, I write some important part from a film of immense importance and categorizes it as Flashy Film. Al the flashy titles are available under the  Category Archives: Flashy Film.  

 

I wanted to change the world…Piercing through the gales, unafraid of anything…Now I hold my courage and pieces of my smile~

 

It had been more than a year since I first saw Born on the fourth of July but the message this movie brings out is unforgettable. Isn’t it more or less the plight of freedom fighters in all the countries.
