What’s Holding Us Back?

I have absolutely zero clue how these months flew by so fast, but I’m super excited for the future nevertheless. I didn’t post anything for months now and I’m genuinely sorry about it.
But Hey! I’m back with a blog post that you can relate to. This happens with us most of the time.
We generally are driven to do something new everyday.
But there’s something holding us back each and every time we think of it. In this blog post we shall read about it.
Also, if you enjoy reading my posts, do let me know in the comment section.


We give a lot of importance to people who themselves don’t do anything of their own. Human being is a social animal that’s what we have heard from a long time and you also might be knowing that others create an impact on our lives.
I have noticed that we seek validation from people around us. Their approval really matters which ‘actually should not’.

I used to do it often, whenever anything came to my mind I usually would go to my friends and would get disapproved from them.
After which unnecessarily my self moral used to become very low and then I would be disappointed for no valid reason. I would feel I’m of no use even before it happens and I get failure.

I have heard everybody saying that I was damn good as a kid, actually not I was a smart kid but I didn’t use my smartness well in studies so whenever I came up with new ideas everybody definitely tried to demotivate me.

I have learnt that whenever somebody says “Don’t do it”, it actually means we really have a good scope in it.

And even if we don’t succeed, remember one mantra for sure. “FAILURE IS THE FIRST STEP TO SUCCESS”

he wasn’t there,
for her birthday,
she went upstairs,
again to see him with an array
of emotions- love, longing and fear.
a spark of happiness in her eyes,
‘he’s here, finally!’
when she saw the light passing her by
she held back her tears- what an irony!
she sat there, all night,
and saw a single little kindle like a minute sun,
in the dark sky, looking at the star shine,
a warm feeling resided in the widow’s heart in that very moment.

Things That Break Productivity.

This year is all about being productive in our own ways. Whatever we do, we should come up with results. That’s when we can say we did something productive. You already went through what things we can do.
In this blog post, I’ll share 3 things that breaks our productive.

“Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.”
– Dale Carnegie


You’re one of a gem – don’t ever forget that. Comparing yourself with someone will just boost your insecurities and nothing else.
It’s always better to be the best version of yourself. That’s so much easy and way more better than comparing yourself and changing too. Change is good but not when you try to copy somebody.

If you compare yourself to someone you will always feel the urge to be something different that you’re not. Unfortunately after a point you’ll no more be yourself and that’s when everything around will change. You will notice that you cannot do things as easily as the other person does because what’s easy for them might be tough for you and vise versa. You will think that you aren’t capable enough. But in this race, you actually forget that sky is the limit.
Sooner or later you’ll realize that you don’t like this version of you. You start loosing your real self.

“Why compare yourself to others? No one in the entire world can do a better job of being you than you.”



Always stay away from negative people. Why? Because they have problem to every solution.
These are generally the ones who would even criticize about a real diamond and question it. Whatever they get their hands on, they’ll find something or the other ways to prove it isn’t good for them.

Same happens at work place whatever environment they are in, they won’t survive. And not only they’ll leave but also critcise about how being there was so difficult for them.
It is always better to accept things that come to your way wholeheartedly. Unless and until you loose something, you’ll not love everything around you.

“Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.”

– Aristotle


One thing we all must do is to stop complaining. We should always be grateful for whatever we have or have had in our life. Simply complaining about things will not make any difference or bring you joy. But you’ll soon turn into a person who complains about anything and everything.

One must give honest reviews for sure but not complain. Circumstances will never change if you just focus on bringing out the bad in people/things-but will make you a kind of person that nobody might not like. It is always better to accept things and work towards your goals.

Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining – it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn’t solve any problems.

Things I’m Grateful For From January.

Oh my God! It’s February fellas. It’s exactly been 1 whole month and a day that I started my blog this New Year. And if you haven’t checked it yet, here the link to my first blog post 👇🏻

From this month I’m starting a new segment on the blog i.e Things I’m Grateful For From (last) Month and I’ll be sharing 3 or probably more things with you. I’m sure you might relate to that. And if you do please don’t waste time, pick up a pen and start jotting it down in your dairy. It is always important to have a gratitude page in your planner as well. No matter how far we go and what all we have, we should never forget where we started. And what all we learnt in our journey.
Without further a due let’s get into the post.


As I dived into 2019 I was really impressed by how my last year went. But within few days itself I wrote in my dairy that my parents are the only ones who actually are mine and care for me. I don’t want to comment anything on anybody specifically but I’ve realised that I’m my mother’s number one priority no matter what. She has supported me throughout everything that life threw at me.

I’d also like to add a short poem by Joanna Fuchs
Mom, you’re a wonderful mother,
So gentle, yet so strong.
The many ways you show you care
Always make me feel I belong.
You’re patient when I’m foolish;
You give guidance when I ask;
It seems you can do most anything;
You’re the master of every task.
You’re a dependable source of comfort;
You’re my cushion when I fall.
You help in times of trouble;
You support me whenever I call.
I love you more than you know;
You have my total respect.
If I had my choice of mothers,
You’d be the one I’d select!


Recently I got the privilege to meet a lot of different people from different backgrounds and trust me, all of them taught me ‘n’ number of things. I got an opportunity to work with some professionals from my field and they were amazing. I had to assist them in a project.

Oh my my! That day was a memorable one. All of them were so intelligent and were soaked in in their fields. But the one thing which was common about all of them was, they were all down to earth. I was able to meet some of the most amazing people in this world and I couldn’t be more thankful that they are in my life now.


With meeting new people I have also lost some in the month of January. And I’m very very grateful for subtracting those from my life. I have realised that cleaning negativity from your life is so important. Never be afraid of losing people, be afraid of losing yourself trying not to lose someone. I make sense to you, right?

I wanted to get rid of some people much earlier but that couldn’t happen. Thank God, an incident happened recently and I got an opportunity to push them aside. Like I cannot keep on pleasing everybody every time. Sorry bro! And trust me when people are walking from you, let them go. Nobody actually holds up your life. Life goes on, yes, it does get difficult sometimes but that’s completely okay. Just subtract unwanted people and it will be all worth it.

Is Break Important?

Break is an important thing. Whether it is a relationship or work or even social media. Last year I was completely off everything, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, Blog, Facebook and my account. Social media seemed to be the only thing my mind cared about. The thing with me is I give more then I take, maybe that’s why I might be giving a lot to time to social media. 🤔 We live in an era where social media is so important that we actually forget ourselves.

I do agree with the fact that social media gives us hell lot of information and acts like a stress reliever too.
It has a lot of pros to it. But not to forget, with such great pros there comes cons as well.

(People on Social Media)

I think social media is more addictive then doing drugs. Subconsciously I was checking it every 5 minutes, I wasn’t even interested in who was posting. I just needed to check, as if I was addicted to scrolling through the internet. But sometimes to get something you must give up something. (Kuch pane ke liye kuch khona padta hai) I realized my worth in that period and set myself free. I still don’t have an Instagram or Twitter account as I don’t think it makes any difference. I also got rid of two of my mail accounts. I don’t get notifications anymore and I am not checking my phone half as much as before.

After this short break maybe you’ll understand- No one really remembers your birthday, nobody really takes an effort to compliment you for who you are, nobody is actually interested in the content you upload, the people that actually care for you and the people who just pretend to.
I don’t know whether I’m able to explain it to you right. There are a lot of things going on in my head but I’m running out of words to be honest. Not only this, but the fact that you only see the best of people’s lives via social media, it isn’t doing any good for us as a person.

It is wise to step back before the floor underneath falls out. Break is really important but if you take it only when YOUR MIND orders you to, I think that will be the right time to go through it. Because if you do something by your own it will definitely make a difference rather than people telling you to do so. After reading this blog post, do sit down and go through your phone and just see which app you actually don’t need. It will make a difference.

70th Republic Day.

I feel honoured to be a part of such a wonderful country like India. I would like to share a few things about this auspicious day with this huge platform that I use to converse with you. I can’t get myself to stray away from my regular posting routine. And that’s why I decided to express some patriotism today as it is 26 January.

The information is taken via the Internet but the thoughts and feelings are definitely mine.

Why Republic Day?

Every year India celebrates republic day on 26 January. This day marks the birth of modern India. On January 26, 1950, the Constitution of India which is the longest constitution in the world was enacted and put into force for the largest democracy. Many leaders of India prepared the constitution after facing the tough task of taking into consideration the concerns of hundreds of ethnic communities, multiple castes, religious segments and tribes.

Significance of the day.

Though India became independent on 15 August 1947 the country didn’t have a permanent constitution and Government of India act 1935 was used back then. After few days of independence, that’s on 28 August 1947, the drafting committee was set up to create a new and permanent constitution and the same was headed by Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar. The constitution was adopted on 26 November 1949 and came into effect on 26 January 1950 for the whole nation. And that’s why Indians celebrate Republic day on January 26 and on this day India became independent republic country replacing the Government of India Act.

As per the Constitution of India, “It declares India a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic, assuring its citizens of justice, equality, and liberty, and endeavors to promote fraternity among them.” As the people adopt the Indian constitution, it can never be upturned by parliamentary supremacy. The day was also chosen as Republic day as on this day in 1930 Declaration of Indian independence that’s Purna Swaraj was proclaimed by Indian national congress.

(Republic Day Parade Air Show by Indian Air Fighters)

People celebrate this day by hoisting the National flag and many events are conducted in schools and other educational institutes. Many also watch the hoisting of tricolor by President of India at the India Gate and ceremonious parade a well. The main celebrations are held in the national capital at the Rajpath. The parades are performed as a tribute to India’s rich and diverse cultural heritage.

I feel really proud and blessed to be a part of this diversely rich country. Jai Hind.
