MAKE IT DIFFERENT EVERY TIME


We have always had a tendency to measure our lives in terms of success and happiness or failure and sadness. For us, our lives will always be in one of these domains, the latter one being the negative scale of our measure. This has somewhere made us stereotype everything in our life from our emotions, our reactions, the way we think and our behavior to even ourselves.  Its like following a user’s manual of some electronic device, if in this situation press this, if in that situation press that, if you have a break up cry for 10 days and distance yourself from everyone, if you just got promoted feel happy and celebrate and if you just got fired feel sad and lock yourself up in your room. We follow this manual with all our heart and sincerity, never even once letting it down, finding ourselves stuck in a cycle of the same order of thoughts, actions, reactions and results. But am sure from our school times, we’ve all seen the coolest of the people being those who break the rules and breaking this one particular rule is definitely going to be a big boost to your cool quotient.
                Now am obviously not telling you to start laughing the moment your girlfriend breaks up with you because that won't make you look cool, only dumb. But what am suggesting here is that be surprising, surprise yourself with a different reaction to a situation for it’s not always good to fulfil others’ expectations or even your own. Instead of starting to beg to her to come back to you with your eyes displaying shock and desperation, you could just give a gentle nod letting your shock not show itself right away and walk out on her with dignity. Leave a trail of mystery behind you. Don’t let others or even yourself predict you. Being innovative with your thoughts, reactions and actions will not only yield new and different results but will also free you from this predicament of a cycle and will lead you on to a path which shall surprise you every now and then.
                    In the beginning it might seem a difficult exercise for even our reactions have become our habits and it’s always hard to break away from them but with time and practice, it’ll become natural and you’ll unconsciously start surprising yourself and others. Its beauty will start radiating through your being and your innovative self will find new and promising dimensions. So be a little quirky and make it different every time.

  5. Amazing concept, Savvy :) This is something that I have been practicing for about a year now...consciously reacting. A friend of mine told me this and thought you would enjoy:

    CTFAR= Circumstance, Thoughts, Feelings, Action, Results

    Our circumstances will trigger our thoughts, influence our feelings/emotions, then translate into our actions, and bring our final results. So really, it all comes back to our initial thoughts of the circumstance itself to give us the results we need/desire. React consciously, the whole world will benefit that way, including you!

    Great post!! Follower of your blog now :)

  7. "Its like following a user’s manual of some electronic device, if in this situation press this, if in that situation press that"
    How true! In some ways, we all have monotonous lives.
    One thing I firmly believe in--every day is a miracle because when you surrender to sleep at night, you have no idea if you'd get up to face that sun again. Hence, do ONE thing different every day. The difference could be in your emotions, actions or even in your words.
