Overcoming disasters

Sometimes we pass through the worst phase of life. We can't run out and try to escape from them. We have to face it, thrash it and overcome..

I have seen some friends of mine collapsing due to such bugs.. Everyone has problems in life and it is always
Survival of the Fittest

I do agree that we often get demotivated and fall into the trap of self-sympathy. My trainer Andrew used to say - "Do not ever fall into the trap of Self-sympathy. That is the worst thing in your life".

How to keep ourselves motivated and sail smoothly through these rough tides.. I practice the following personally.. Might be useful for you too :)

If it is a momentary anger - Deep breath

Frustrated because of some happenings - I would go to my favorite food stall and have my favorite dish.. Alone.. I love my own company and i also do self talking(mentally and not aloud :)), try to analyse things, find out a solution and come out.. This has worked many times. Henceforth if you see me eating alone at Barista / Balaji Bhavan / Icecream parlor , this would be the prime reason :)

Hurt - I am a bit emotional and obviously i have to bear emotional let-downs. Soul-stirring music is my choice. My best collection for this time is Bee Gees album.. Maestro's How to name it, Mohan instrumentals, Renga devotional songs.
Eventhen, i am put-out - I go for books. They let me discover myself.

Some other ways are :
Having a glimpse of My Renga (Srirangam)
If i need confidence, i will visit Tirupathi
Playing with kids
Being with my parents
Telling things to my understanding brother. I never let-out myself to anyone else.
I have very few close friends. Chatting with them (on general topics) is a good relief.
Reciting Tirupavai.. Brings whole lot of vibration
Taking a break and going to scenic places like - Kerala, Valparai, Pollachi etc.,

There are ways to be happy and this life is very precious. Let us enjoy each and every moment of it. " A Winner never Quits and A Quitter never Wins".
