#SMILEY-THOUGHTS-FOR-COMPLEX-LIVES
We all had a brief moment of disbelief that anyone can learn how to smile better. And yet, since then, for many years, we practiced smiling in the mirror and on many other occasions. That’s a fact we’ve often been a little embarrassed to admit right? Are there any ways to be joyful even at hard times? Well... let's just peek into something interesting now.
The smile is the “the symbol that was rated with the highest positive emotional content”
Most people smile when they get something.
We all like to smile when we receive a compliment, a surprise visit from a friend, or a big paycheck.
In other words, we’re happy when we receive a direct benefit.
But the way I see it, I’m the direct beneficiary of everything happening around me. the thing that’s powering all these smiles is very simple.
#Gratitude
It’s amazing what positive effects we experience once we begin to say, “Thank you!” for everything.
Thanks for the gift of life. Thanks for a delicious meal. Thanks for the smile of a stranger.
But the weird (and powerful) change I invite you to make is this:
Give thanks for even the seemingly negative things that come into your life.
Illness, pain, and loss are some of the most powerful teachers we have available. They reflect back to us the ways in which we need to grow. They show us the power that’s within us.And they show us that life is incredibly precious.
Worry is like a pyre, it kills one slowly but surely. It's always better to cultivate the habit of using 'in spite of' than giving reasons like 'because of'.
Life isn’t the fantasies you have in your head—it’s what’s happening right now! All the great things around you are yours.
> The sunshine hitting your face.
> The smile of your kids and grandkids.
> The exhilaration of going for a run and feeling your blood rush about in your marvelous arms and legs.

Yesterday is history. There is no reason in speculating the bad memories. Always try to hold on to the memories that gave you happiness. Cherish the same by sharing with others. You are awesome, Thankyou so much for reading this with patience. You made me smile today. (=

#SMILE-MORE

There's nothing better than seeing someone smile - a person you care for, even better if you're the reason behind it. All of us can't be Charlie Chaplin. Having a great sense of humor is not everybody's cup of tea, neither all of us can be the “hero" who brings a smile to everyone's face. But, we can all try. Presenting to you 25 very simple ways to bring a smile to a person's face.

1.) The easiest. Crack a bad joke. Extraordinarily bad. I'd give you an example:
Q.) What did the Shirt say to the trouser?

A.) Awwwwwwww

Okay, not this bad. Moving on...

2.) Gifts. An unexpected gift is a sure shot idea to make someone happy. Gift your best friend tissue papers. Bring pizza home, gift me a million dollars. Gifts always work.

3.) Give compliments to your loved ones. Something as simple as "you're a dear friend/sibling," anything complementary.

4.) Smile, say hello to strangers. A random smile at a stranger can make someone's day. People need good vibes, be the one to provide ‘em.

5.) Say “Thank you" for the little things done right. We always complain when loved ones mess something up, but never thank them for the millions of times they do it right. Be grateful. Say, “Thank you!"

6.) You've tons of virtual friends, if you think someone needs a smile. Give them a reason. There are lots of great GIFs, cat pics, memes and everything on the Internet. Forward something with a personal touch.

7.) One for the kids. Gift them chocolates, play games with ‘em. Tell ‘em stories, however horrible the stories are. Give a kid some time, it would just not make him happy, but give you peace and happiness as well.

8.) To add to 7, discover the kid within you. Give yourself attention and enjoy your moments. You don't know how many people will smile just because you're smiling.

9.) Play pranks, a successfully played prank will make everyone happy, a failed one will get people mad with laughter. Something as simple as telling people, there's a bomb in the house will work, although you may risk being kicked out.

10.) You should never look back, buy if you do, pick a tale from the past and see the magic. Start as: “You know dad, your favorite watch you lost in 2004. You yelled at me the day before. So, I flushed it to avenge. Ain't it funny?" Okay, next...

11.) Do a random act of kindness. There's no greater good in the world as doing something for someone, selflessly. Be kind, the world needs it. Let someone feel good.

12.) Ask your friends over for a game on Weekend. Whatever sport you play, everyone needs a break, see to it that your pals get one.

13.) Crack jokes on your wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend, or best friends, these jokes always end up in laughter. [PS: See to it that the targeted person doesn't see it. Stay safe.] 

14.) Forgive people for their mistakes. If someone regrets it, don't make ‘em feel down. Forgive and smile at the lesson both of you've learned. 

15.) Tell your significant other that you love ‘em. 

16.) More to gifts. Give an anonymous gift to someone. Something, a loved one always wanted. Keep it anonymous. Let the person live in imagination.

17.) Laugh out loud at something funny when things go quiet in a family gathering, etc. Chances are people will catch up soon.

18.) Be nice to waiters/ waitresses. Give ‘em kind words or tips. Thank them. 

19.) Write something for the people you love. A little note or anything. Draw a picture for them. Send ‘em pictures from the past. Talk/chat to people around you. Show them their worth. Make the day better for them in every little way you can.

20.) Help elder people. Whether you know them or not. Help strangers with carrying bags or holding the door. “Be remembered for good."

21.) Lend something to a friend/sibling, they know you only share with people you trust. 

22.) “Good mornings", “Good nights" are underrated. Everyone appreciates having people care for ‘em. Sometimes, it's cool letting them know you're there. 

23.) Laugh at yourself, others will follow suite. I forgot to mention, I've some grey hair showing up. Save me God! Don't laugh you fool.

24.) Play along with good stories. Some tales about you are worth being incorrect. If only, they make people laugh, and don't harm anyone involved. Go another step ahead, and tell a good lie about yourself. By the way, I found 2 gold biscuits under my bed.

25.) Tell a good joke. Example:
Q.) What's big, round and is pretty HOT? 

A.) Sun. Okay.

Bonus. 26.) Always remember to wear a smile! 😄

#MAKE-GOOGLE-PLUS-MORE-POSITIVE
In an age where campaigns strive to build both physical and metaphorical walls, to isolating races and religions to millions of displaced people around the world, it kind of feels like we’re entering some really dark times – doesn’t it? The impact of social media on society has been profound, as it acts as a sort of funhouse mirror reflection of this world in today's reality.

+Google+, Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat… meep! Whenever you pick up your smartphone or laptop, it seems everyone is offering up the best bits of their lives — adding that Valencia filter, cropping out the dodgy scenery and, generally, just showing off. No wonder we look at these social media lives and start to question our own…” Why? What for? A force for good or evil? Are there any chances of gaining positivity and make it better for others?
As with most questions, there are multiple angles to approach this quandary from. With all of us having a very well awareness to the pessimistic dark side of this platform, I thought it only fair to redress the balance.

While it’s human nature to stare and compare, it’s also natural that we are kinder to others than to ourselves. In life, we usually spend time with people that make us feel better about ourselves, which is a practice we should bring to social media.
Tho' complete changeover towards the positivity is contrary to reason, there are certain ways through which a small changeover in our activities and behavior in this platform can bring in some ray of hope towards a new vision. Here they are:
> Making connections with like-minded individuals,
> Sharing the experience of hardships and glory,
> Self-awareness towards privacy,
> Securing originality by being honest,
> Working on an Anti-addiction schedule,
> anD avoiding the endorsement of negatives.
By fasting from that negativity for this short time, hopefully, we can then break the habit of always going negative and hone our habit of gratitude and positivity.

The history of social media is riddled with ups and downs. Which side will you be on? Have you tried to #gopositive on social media?
Take an initiative; Try it for yourself, and
Make +Google+ more positive.

Hello People ! Hope you had a Great Christmas, (or hannukah) And Will be having a wonderful night Right before the dawn of 2017 !
Everyone one of us has Tried meditation ? (Answer this one okay ?)
Meditation is not sitting at a place for hours and not feeling any improvement, It doesn't mean you gotta go to mount everest where it's silent to mediate (( Yes, you can meditate even in Loud noises))
It is important Because it increases our focus attention, our senses and even the way we respond to everyday situations. It is just like a Gym workout for the brain.
Most of us have tried it, and didn't find it very helpful, SO here We are with a video To help you out !

#LIFE-HACKS
What do you really want to gain out of this beautiful life?
Can you realize the potential you possess?
What can you offer the world that no one else can?
Would your 8-year-old self be proud of you right now?
Just think for a while...
Hard work and discipline are what you need to succeed. This applies to everything. There really is no secret - or shortcut - that will get you around this. tho' there are certain ways through which gaining confidence in today's reality becomes much easier. To fit in more precisely to the current generation, they can be called as #Confidence-Hacks Here they are:
> Surround Yourself With People Who Think You’re Awesome.
> Do What You’re Good At.
> Constantly Learn New Things.
> Eliminate Negativity.
> Stay Healthy, and
> Tell Yourself a Good Story.
Don't get mad. Don't get Even. Do better. Much better. Rise above. Become so engulfed in your own success that you forget it ever happened.
Oh, and in case you needed an extra boost today: I believe in you.
I believe in you despite your flaws. I believe in you because of your flaws. I believe you can defy the odds. I believe you can do work that matters. I believe you can silence the critics and step into your calling. I believe you can have fun in life (remember fun?). I believe you’re greater than you think you are. I believe that the world is better because you’re in it. I believe you can take this one life and grow something beautiful.
I believe in you—now go believe in yourself.

VoIces From Experience
How often do you find yourself saying, “In a minute”, “I’ll get to it” or “Tomorrow’s good enough” and every other possible excuse in the book? Compare it with how often you decide it’s got to be done, so let’s get on and do it! That should tell you just how serious your procrastinating problem really is.

Habitual procrastinators will readily testify to all the lost opportunities, missed deadlines, failed relationships and even monetary losses incurred just because of one nasty habit of putting things off until it is often too late. There is only now. And look! How rich we are in it.

A while ago I came across something interesting from the works of Anne Lamott. I personally felt it refreshing and essential to be shared. Here it goes...
Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report written on birds that he'd had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books about birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, "Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.

Thirty years from now you might have settled down with all the wealth and status, but you will never be able to buy your past with any such luxuries you own. So, just make sure to create some magical memories that can be cherished for legacies.

To have more peace, as well as more time, start by letting go of the notion that time can be manipulated. Then, let go of the idea that it confines you. Instead, set out to use the time that is there for its true and best purpose – as the space within which you can live your life to the fullest.

#TIME-MANAGEMENT
Hello folks ! Hope you all are Doing great and are in high Spirits.
Most people Think that Scheduling things is a waste of time.. It takes away our freedom, and is more painful, Mechanical some may say. But It isn't !! ((Do I sound Crazy ?)) Yes It isn't ! Think about it, if you don't plan out your day, You're doing simply whatever comes up, do you know what this means ? That you have less time for what you really want to do. See, the magic in Scheduling things is that If you manage to complete the tasks before the designated time, You now have More FREEDOM !
You can now take a break or talk to your friend or anything that you like. And as you celebrate with people about your success in keeping the schedule it gets more and more fun !
Okay So Let's Begin !
Today We're gonna discuss Time, Yes, Time and not much about how to manage it((that's for you to decide )). Now, we all know that we have only 24 Hours per day, Yet we utilise so less of it. First thing we need to do is DREAM !! Learn to dream ! Visualise things, Get your reasons Clear of why you're doing this (( they may be friends, family, passion, or to leave a legacy)) Anything, But you gotta visualise things. Now don't set Dreams Based on your current capabilities, You can learn any skill you need to, so dream fearlessly. But First Know your current self, your current state, if you find it hard to figure this out then take help of this :
Spheres Of Life Rate( out of 10)
Health
Love
Family
Mission
Hobbies
Spirituality
Also regarding Planning stuff, Don't set singular goals< set a series Of them Like If you wanna be fit, Set a gal that I'll exercise Six days a week for Half an hour, Set another one Right after it, Like After doing this I'll Go for a walk. Like this, Set at least five goals, coz otherwise people set one goal like I'll loose Five pounds and when they do, they get back to their normal Lives and gain those five pounds back.
Okay so once you know who you are and what you do. Next thing you need is a schedule.
Now the most Important thing About Scheduling tasks is that you need to have an emotional connection with your tasks, Like if you Eat Green Food Add a bit of chocolate at the last, so that every day Your Brain Goes Yeah I like it ! I get to stay Fit and enjoy my Piece of chocolate everyday.
You gotta Set reward points for yourself for every new habit that you start or plan. And another way to add emotions is to be Grateful, one more is to talk to people about it, tell them how good you felt while doing this. And every time You Achieve your Goals, Celebrate ! no matter how small that goal might be, Go out with friends or simply Hug your parents and tell them about it, Do anything But celebrate it, This way You're integrating that small amount of success into your Personality, not only that It'll keep your brain focused on continuing the path that you chose.
Everyday When you wake up, Have some time for yourself, Remind yourself of the goodness in life, That it's worth Living. Like I said, this is also one of the reward points you need t have for yourself, It'll help you Stay Charged Throughout the day.
Hope this Helps you Out! Questions are always welcome!

#INTERNET-SAFETY
Fact Sheet
Cyberbullying is the attack upon an individual or group through the use of electronic means such as instant messaging, social media, E-mail and other forms of online communication with the intent to abuse, intimidate, or overpower. In a 2012 study of over 11,925 students in the United States, it was indicated that 23% of adolescents reported being a victim of cyberbullying, 30% of which reported experiencing suicidal behavior
Cyberbullying is just what it sounds like - bullying through Internet applications and technologies such as instant messaging (IM), social networking sites, and cell phones. It can start easily—with a rumor, a photo, or a forwarded message—and just as easily spiral out of control. An embarrassing video posted to a social networking site by someone in Kansas tonight may be watched by someone in Japan tomorrow. Cyberbullying victims may be targeted anywhere, at any time.
Cyber bullying can work in the same way as bullying in the playground; the victim feels frightened and alone, while the bully tries to hide from being caught.
Comments, images and videos about a person can be posted online causing the victim to feel frightened and upset.
It is even possible for cyber bullies to hack into the victim's personal accounts and harass them from within their own user profile.
Often cyber bullies feel braver because they can't be seen, but it can be the most traceable form of bullying because there's evidence that it's happened.
But because bullies think they can cover up their identity online sometimes people who wouldn't normally bully might do so online
TIPS
-Don't respond to rude emails messages and comments
Block bullies
-Save the evidence And contact the ISP or cell phone provider or Website administrator to remove any webpage that hurts you or others around you((e.g your child))
-If harassment is via text and phone messages, change the phone number and only share the new number with trustworthy people. Also, check out phone features that may allow the number to be blocked.
-Make a report to www.cybertipline.com, and if you feel something illegal has occurred, inform law enforcement.
-In the worst case scenario, you gotta delete your old ID and create a new one and interact with only a select trusted people.

#CYBERBULLYING
Fact sheet
What is Cyberbullying !? Basically bullying over Electronic media. Why should you care? Simple, because you or someone you love is at risk of being bullied over your phone, computer, Laptop, tablet or anything. It could happen anytime, anywhere. While some of you may say that you're #TrollProof or #AbuseProof or you know how to handle yourself. Truth is, you may be living under a rock. Even if you're safe, there's a teen out there that might not be. A post by stopbullying.gov reports that in 2013, 15% of high school students experienced cyberbullying. Social Media has only grown bigger since then, expect that number to rise meteorically.

While you can follow “link 1” to read about cyberbullying and its effects and more. I am here to serve some facts to you which are going to make you more aware and care more about cyber bullying. Here we go...

1. In Urban areas in India, 98.8% students use the Internet for various purposes. 76% are unaware of Child helpline number 1098; 35% have been hacked before; 16% have received inappropriate messages; 10.4% have been humiliated through picture/video's uploaded on the internet. Keep this in mind, not everyone in the survey would reveal “everything". Kids are afraid and hesitant, that to those unlucky ones who've been bullied.
[Fact credit: http://m.tech.firstpost.com/news-analysis/schoolkids-more-susceptible-to-cyber-bullying-in-india-survey-354706.html]

2. Brandy Vela, 18, shot herself in front of her parents after being relentlessly cyberbullied. Add to that, the bullying literally followed her to her grave.
[Credit Link: http://edition.cnn.com/2016/12/14/health/teen-suicide-cyberbullying-continues-trnd/]

3. Advisory: This one is positive! Sorry, I hate it too, but you know, kids.
Luke Culhane (13) who's hailed as The French “Child Of The Year by the newspaper “Mon Quotidien" made headlines due to a video he posted called “Cyberbullying: Create No Hate". Over 550k hits on Youtube, he's doing things, adults are ignorant about. #sigh
[Credit Link: http://www.irishtimes.com/news/social-affairs/limerick-boy-named-child-of-the-year-by-french-newspaper-1.2919504]

4. Back to normal, 1 in 5 Canadians has been cyberbullied.

5. The percentages of individuals who have experienced cyberbullying at some point in their lifetimes have nearly doubled (18% to 34%) from 2007-2016.

6. You know a person that has been cyberbullied. Am I right?

Don't ignore bullies! Stand up for everyone else. Google and you'd find loads of content based on Cyberbullying! Most negative. Don't take a breath yet. There is more to it. Be that positive change the virtual world needs.

Indie Story
"It's raining again..." I think, looking up to the clouds. A small breeze snake around a few of my loose hair strands, triggering a shiver that's running down my spine. I immediately regret leaving my comfortable bed, but it was so comfortable that it became painful. I haven't been out of bed for two days now, and my whole body ache.
Somehow, as I watch the rain fall from my balcony, I feel less "chaotic" than before. Just watching the rain fall comforts me. It seems as if, even if for a brief time, that the whole sky is crying with me. consoling me. Yet, the sky won't cry for me forever. Soon it'll stop crying and I'll be left alone. Not that it bothers me or anything, I've been alone for a long time so it's nothing new. I'm used to it. This feeling of nothingness, the emptiness that took over my being, the sorrow, and the darkness. As I am watching the rain, the feeling of dizziness overcome me. I walk back inside, keeping the balcony open so I can keep looking at the rain. I sit on the bed, cover myself with my blanket, and stare outside. It feels good sitting in there doing nothing, as it's a trouble for me even going to take a bath. Everything bothers me, even myself. I often think that me being here, is a waste. I don't have friends that I interact with, my mother died several months back, and my dad is busy with work. He seldom comes home, and when we do come, he's always working. I used to go to school, but now I don't go. I stopped after my dad gave up on me not failing school. Everything is just crashing on top of me, so I just sit still. I do nothing other than think of my unfortunate life. Thinking that I'm being a burden and a complete failure is a norm now. I keep staring at the rain not realising that my cloudy eyes are raining as well. My hiccups bring me back to reality, as I hear the knocking on my door, "Can I come in?". "Yes Dad", I said, a little surprise taking over me. "Hey, how are you?" He says. "As usual" I reply unenthusiastically. Turning my glance back at the crying world outside. "Sweety, I know your mother's death is very traumatic to you. So it is to me. It hurts me more seeing that I didn't only lose her, but I'm losing you too" I felt my soul cry, but my body don't respond. He's looking at me waiting for an answer. I have none. He shares a little sigh "sweety, I know that you really love playing the violin... and I found a very good academy here for teaching music. How about you join them?" His voice bearing this small thread of hope in it; the hope that I am thirsty for. I really want to take hold of this delicate thread and climb out of my misery. Yet, nothing in me is moving. My motivation is long gone. "It doesn't matter anymore. I'll fail that one too. Save your money for something worth paying for" I glance at him. I realise that he have grown 10 years older from the last time I saw him. He is in pain, I know it, but I'm long gone to help him. I look away, ending our small talk and looking back from the abandoned violin to the balcony. He looks at me wrapping his big arms around me. "I will not abandon you. You are my little girl, my only family left." He is crying and I feel my dead soul coming back to life. I keep longing for this hug when I'm alone in the darkness. I long for it even in this moment. Just like the pouring rain outside, my tears flood me, choking me on my words. My dad hugs me tighter, calming my crying pieces of a soul. "You need to get out of this Hell. You are not worthless. You mean the world to me, you know that right?" He kissed my forehead and says "I will prepare dinner for us" he smile at me then leave the room. I sit here feeling dizziness and confusion. I'm worthless, I know. I am a waste of space, I know that too. Yet, my mother's sweet faint voice in my mind says that I'm not alone. My father's voice plays in my head again. Someone in this world needs me. Someone in this world thinks of me as the world itself. Someone thinks that my presence gives comfort. How can I say that I'm alone? I'm not alone, I never am. All I need is to get up and start walking. and so I do.
