” LIVING IN POSITIVITY ! “
Amazed ! I know many of you when came across this blogs title would have thought for a moment that is everything okay with the author of the this blog ?
Like, When everything around in our society is going through alot of issues and problems , how can someone say or even think for a second that we all are living in positivity ?
Sounds strange ! Right ?
Okay ! Let’s clear this out.
You all must be wondering what did I saw or observed that I decided to write something on this particular topic ? Right ? Actually that is my answer . My observation led me to write on this particular topic about positivity. So Yes ! I observed that currently the 75% of the youth engaged with the social media shared many stories about people commiting suicide and dealing with depression etc .
□ You know what is the main issue here ?
Look ! When we fail to understand or feel what someone very close to us is going through or when we fail to help the people in need of our help , of our support , of our guidance , of our shoulder. They feel neglected. They feel left out. They feel lonely and they suffer with depression. And some even endup with suicide at times as well. It is not just the loss of some lives , it is such a huge loss as a society. Because a society itself failed in providing it’s members the full faith , confidence , freedom and ensurity of a better and a safer living. Free of bullying and criticism. Which is the basic right of every single member or individual being living in the society. I am also the member of the same society and I feel so disappointed when I see people love bullying and irritating some people because of their profession or something else. In my views I respect every profession and every hardworking professional because I view a person’s potential , his passion , his dedication towards his work and his hardwork as more important than the rest of the other small things , like what sort of a profession is it ?
□ HOW CAN WE HELP THEM ?
I know you must be thinking how can we help them without them asking for help or without them showing that they are inneed of our help ?
We all know not everyone is Psychologist or Psychiatrist . But above all we are all human beings. This is the right time to show what is meant by being human. Almighty Allah made us human beings and blessed us with the highest rank of all his creations after the Holy Prophets. He not only blessed us the highest rank above all his creations but also he granted us alot more like emotions , feelings , sympathy , love, devotion , hardwork ,wisdom and much more. We human beings were sent in the world not to just live for ourselves but also to become a support system for our loved ones , for the ones who are inneed of our time , of our help and of our care .
▪ Become a friend and help them get out of this :
We can help them and so we should help them. It is not any kind of a financial help that you guys need to worry about . It is just so simple and easy to become a shoulder for someone in their hard times. They feel so good and lighthearted when you go and listen to a story of a broken heart and when you wipe their tears off running down the cheeks , and just place your hand on their hand and show through your eyes that , “Hey ! You do not need to worry about anything from now , I am here for you . And I will be always there for you.”
Just remember one thing that , We can and we should help them .
We all should spread this chain of positivity everywhere. When we start any good work or good deed with just an idea of helping someone , that it will be beneficial for that particular person or particular work or group then the Almighty bless us with unlimited wonderful blessings that we don’t have any idea about. This initiates a positive impact in our society and in this way the chain of positive actions let us to create a positive change in our society and this positive change eventually led us to a beautiful living in positivity.
This is what is meant by “LIVING IN POSITIVITY.”
■ IS POSITIVITY AN ILLUSION ?
Positivity is not an illusion . It was never and it will never be. We people now perceive that it is an illusion. And unless we do not clear our wrong perceptions about positivity we can not live a positive life. I know life is not so simple in these days of technology but it was also not simple in the stone age nor in the industrial age and it will never be as simple or less complicated as it is now. And that is the main reason why people perceive that “Positivity is an Illusion these days.”
■ DUMP YOUR THOUGHTS :
We have to just dump our wrong and stupid perceptions about not looking forward to good things for a positive change in our society and just condemn that it is not possible today. It is possible and we can make it possible .Though subtracting our wrongdoings and adding the chain of positive actions and creating a powerful impact in our society.
We can and we will make a powerful and power-packed impact if we input good deeds in our children, in our youth and in our adults to create a positive change in our society. If we start implanting this chain of positive actions and postivity today, we will never face any kind of storm of negativities in future. So, Start today ! Start now ! Spread the word ! Spread Positivity !
□ HOW TO SPREAD THE CHAIN OF POSITIVITY ?
▪ BRAINSTORMING ( INITIATE THE THINKING OF POSTIVITY ) :
We sent our children to schools and hand over them entirely to the school teachers and expect them to teach all the good habits and cover up all the syllabus as soon as possible. But we ourselves as adults do not teach our children these habits . Why ? Because we ourselves as adults do not follow these good habits which includes all the basic good habits like spreading positive vibes. We as individuals should start with ourselves first and then we should teach these habits to our children. Do not think how we should initiate the thinking of positivity , we should just start and just go with the flow. Start with small effective actions and do not force your children to follow on your actions. Just do yourself , because always remember that your children do not listen to you, they watch you and then they adapt your actions by watching you . This way our children will also very willingly follow and soon learn the positivity mantra. So , start now ! Start with yourself today.
▪ ENLIST THE POSSIBLE POSITIVE ACTIONS :
Remember when you plan to hangout to somewhere , you never forget to make a checklist. And recheck it before leaving as well. Same you have to do it now. Make a bucket list or checklist and write down the possible and easy to do actions that you do or perform in your everyday life , which is productive and positive too. And just follow the list and try to guide others as well . In this way you can also easily spread the word as well. Some effective positive actions are :
• Pass a smile.
• Meet and Greet, happily and politely.
• Listen to a friend , ask him about his day and how it went ?
• Do not discriminate on any basis. Just respect them and their work and they will feel good.
• Appreciate small small efforts and good initiatives.
▪ TRYOUT SOME BASIC POSITIVITY ACTIONS :
Half the job is done now after you have made a bucket list for yourself. I know some of you might have made a long list and some would have just listed few actions in their mind only. Agreed ? I know it seems like a boring task for some. But just think for a while you got something new to give it a try. Something different apart from your daily routine tasks. So do not just make a bucket list and leave it as it is. Make the most out of it. Do at least one positive task daily. The day you start it doing it daily , you will definitely see yourself wanting to do more tasks in a day. This way the chain of positivity proceeds forward.
▪ THE “GIVE AND TAKE” MANTRA :
Do you believe in Karma ? ” What you give is what you get in return.” It even sounds like Newtons 3rd Law of Motion. Which states , “To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Simple and clear. What we give is what we get in return . Likewise if our mission is to spread positive vibes then in return we will definitely Inshah Allah receive the same positive impact.
▪ CHAIN THE CHANGE :
When you have started the chain of positive actions do not stop it at any cause. Just keep moving forward and keep working on it. Keep up the good work. Thats it !
▪ SPREAD THE WORD :
You use social media like consuming daily early morning coffee or a tea. Like too regular , no ! Actually too much regularly. Just sharing your day to day life or any Monday motivation quotes typo. But you do not do a single good deed throughout your whole busy day schedule. Reason ? Because You were too busy . Busy with your work , busy at household chores , busy with studies or tuitions etc. Just excuses and lame excuses and nothing much. I have read somewhere
” Make your day productive instead of making it busy. “
Why making your day busy ? When you can make it meaningful. Make it productive. Make the most out of it. But do not make excuses for being busy. You can even make your routine and your work productive , if you just enjoy what you do and you are happy with that. And your work is in any possible way helping someone somewhere in anything . Use Facebook not just to check in but also to check into positive vibes. Use Snapchat not just to send streaks but also to spread good deeds through it. Use Instagram not just to post pictures of yourself with filters but also to spread good initiatives without filters and faking. So , spread positivity. Spread positive vibes. Start today. Start now.
