Do you keep the dead dog in your mind ?

Recently somebody asked me this question.Why do you keep the dead dog in your mind ? I was not been able to understand these question. I was completely unaware that this question can have such a deep meaning. Read this post further to know about this dead dog and how it affects our lives.

One early morning as you open the door or gate of your house and see the dead dog in front of you which is being left by your next door neighbour, what would be your action or reaction ?

Take your time to think.

#MyFriendAlexa,  #journeysays,  #quotes #lifequotes,  #inspiration  , Journey of life continues quotes, inspiration

There are many options. If you are a dog lover you will first pick the dead dog and will take the necessary action. You may complain the authorities for this wrong action. In none of the case, you will leave the dead dog there. Not even few hours or a day. You first action will be to clear up your front door to avoid any hindrance or foul smell.

Same is the case when somebody throws out his or her dirty mind or foul language or anger on you or in front of you, why do you keep that in your mind ?

The more it will be in front of the doors of your mind, the more you will get disturbed. You have to remove this dead dog from the doors of your mind to think fresh. Otherwise, it will cause the diseases which in turn will affect your whole self.

The person who has done wrong with you will be happy to see you disturbed as his purpose is getting solved but what about you? Just ruin the plans of this neighbourer and move forward. Never keep the dead dog in your mind !

If this the dead dog will keep on lying in front of the door of your house for few days, not only you but the whole neighbourhood will get affected because of the foul smell. So , better to remove it as soon as possible.

Many a times we encounter such situation where we keep on thinking day and night about that one incident or a situation. Sometimes this goes on for months. This create disturbance in our , making us unable to do our daily work. These issues then lead to physical problems like high blood pressure, cholesterol, anxiety and depression. The doctors put us on sleeping pills and anti depressants and things go out from our control.

It is always easy to control the problem at the beginning before it grows out big and malicious.

The best ways to throw out the dead dog from mind are –

Train your mind Do not let thought wander here and there. Focus on your goal and concentrate on solution rather problem.

Start your day positivelyBegin your day with positive thoughts. Positivity attracts positivity.

Meet positive people – Such people have positive aura around them. Such people having a kind of healing power. They can make you feel comfortable through their touch or conversation.

Meditation – This is the best practice to have a peace in our life. It can be done in any form.

Be forgetful and forgive – This is best way to keep the mind fresh and free from all the disturbances happening in our lives.

Have you ever encountered with such a dead dog in your life ? How did you come out from it? Do share in comment section.

With lots of love for this beautiful creature of God who has always been a best friend to the human kind like SUNNY , So faithful and kind.🐕🐕

Are you a teacher for Generation – Z

Who says teaching is the most easy job in the world ? Most of the people say if you can’t be anything be a teacher. My dears , please spend few months or few days in the classroom for long 8 hours. Only then you will realise that this is most challenging profession. You are not dealing with machines , instruments or any lifeless thing. You are dealing with 40 or 50 lives. These are not the ones like you but they belong to Generation – Z.

This generation who has born in the era where everything is mechanized, computerised. They are knowing how to handle the gadgets , smartphones, PS4 which you are still in the process of learning . Believe me a child of 1 year can scroll down the phone or search on YouTube better than you.

They don’t need you to explain anything or nor they need dictionary to know meanings. They have Goggle!!!

So , My dear teachers , why are you still there in schools ???

They have all the means to learn and get knowledge far beyond your capabilities. What they need is your ears ! Your attention , your time , your patience. They have all the online sources , family , friends and social media profiles . They can share their joys and sorrows online but they are all alone in this pseudolife. Help them to feel that someone is there in real life who real cares for them.

Children have lot to tell , to speak about but they have no one to hear. So my dear teacher’s, lend your ears to them. Listen them carefully with full attention and patience. Listen to their broken hearts , their reasons of joy , life mysteries.

Read out the article written by Shanna Peeples who is pursuing learning as a doctoral student @Harvard and 2015 National Teacher of the Year. She writes who can be bring their hearts out in the classroom and why should be do so.

What I’m sharing here is an abridged version of this lesson. Part of the reason the room gets quiet, I think, is because of a willingness to be authentic and vulnerable with our own authentic questions. I share my own frustrations with the difficult nature of justice, which is also an engaging topic for teenagers. ( Read the complete article here – The questions kids carry)

Their little minds are always been bombarded within . Lots of questions keep popping up. We as teachers should give them courage to ask these questions. We should vent out all their thoughts and solve their doubts. We have to develop the faith so that they should confide within us.

We as teachers have to bring the children’s positive side out which may have overshadowed by negativity. Help them to grow morally and spiritually. #journeysays #myfriendalexa

Be ready to bring change in lives of your students. They need you more now than ever.

Happy Teacher’s Day to all.

What qualities do you expect a teacher for today’s generation should have ? If you are a teacher of this generation , how would you handle them ??

Happy Classroom

BlogchatterAtoZ, educational REFORMS, happy classroom, classroom idea

Happiness is when
I answer a question in the class
Happiness is when
I get answer of my question…
Happiness is when
I get a star in my notebook
Happiness is when
I get a pat on my back…..
Happiness is when
She calls out my name
Happiness is when
She appreciates my way…
Happiness is when
When I enter in class
Happiness is when
When I forget my flaws….

Let the children give the opportunities in the classroom to develop their happiness quotient.

Small efforts , few words can make their world magical . Here are few tips to develop happiness quotient of your children along with Emotional quotient and Intelligence quotient.

  • Give them a chance to ask questions.
  • Respect their opinion.
  • Welcome their suggestions.
  • Ask them to smile and clap at regular intervals .
  • Appreciate their response and small efforts.
  • Give them a chance to plan.
  • Call out with their names not with Roll numbers.
  • Reward them for their improvement.
  • Make them feel their importance .

Beware! You are feeding chemicals to your kids

Food habits, child heath , chemicals in food

As a parent we always want to give our kids best be it food or thoughts. Sometimes unknowingly or due to ignornance we get indulge in the wrong food practices which can adversely affect the heath of young children. The food we are giving to them become reason for their heath hazards through the chemicals containing in them. Here is list of few chemicals and wrong practices which we are following and need a check :

  • Ajinomotto in Chinese food – Have you ever thought why your child likes more the outside food and why does it tastes better compared to the one we make at home. It is because they add Ajinomotto ( Mono sodium glutamate) or MSG , a very harmful and carcinogenic chemical if taken at large quantities. This also present in processed food and packed food.
  • Artificial Colours – When we have so many colours in our natural food why do we need to to give such artificial things to our kids. Food prepared in restaurants is full of colour as they add it to make it more appealing . These chemicals can enhance the symptoms of ADHD in children.
  • Caffeine – If summers means cold drinks for your kids then you are spoiling your kids. High in sugar content and caffeine can not be comprised with natural drinks .
  • Bisphenols like BPA- can cause problems with your child’s immune system and interfere in puberty too. It is mainly found in 3 and 6 number plastic.
  • Heating and reheating in plastic – When you cook food and reheat the food in plastic in microwave, it makes the food poisonous. Even you should avoid putting the hot food in Tiffin boxes if they are of plastic.

Healthy food practices to follow

  • Choose fresh and home made food over packed and outside food. Once in while it is ok.
  • Prefer to cook meal fresh and consume immediately.
  • Use glass container to reheat in microwave if required .
  • Prefer steel tiffin and water bottles for kids .
  • Use cloth napkin instead to foil paper to wrap food in lunch.
  • Make home made sharbats in summers.
  • Use natural colours while cooking food e.g. turmeric or saffron for yellow or beetroot for red or pink colour.
  • Do heathy shopping for your family

Your attitude matters in your life

#journeysays,Attitude in life ,journey of life continues #lifequotes

Yes! Attitude matters a lot.

Carrying the right attitude can have a magical impact on your life. It is only the God who knows what is written on the next page of your life. It comes in front of you once it is written. You have no eraser to erase nor you can cut and rewrite. So prepared to confront every situation that comes in your life.

As the William Shakespeare says

There is nothing either good for bad  but thinking made it so. It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

We are in a world where people criticise more than appreciate. They try to find faults in each and every task you do. They laugh when you fall and they jealous when you grow. Many a times you fall just before the finishing line. That is when they celebrate. You feel broken, tired….as if the pieces of glass shattered on the floor.

So what is in our hands ????

Attitude ! Your attitude towards these problems is your strength. It can not only the save you from the unwanted situations but brings you out from the deep troubles. Positive attitude may not solve the problem but it can make a way to do so.

Right attitude at right time brings out the stronger shade of your personality.

#journeysays

It becomes easy for you to put forward your thoughts as you enforce the other person to listen to you. The way you speak, the words you use and your tone represent your attitude.

Attitude plays an important role at your work place too.

Work becomes easier if you have a positive attitude towards your profession. Ask yourself if you are enjoying the work you are doing ? Are you striving towards the goals of your company ? Is your profession or salary is making your personal life better ? Answers to these few questions will decide the attitude towards your job or profession.

“Whatever happens, just keep smiling and lose yourself in Love” says Rumi.

Smile on your face can put the people into a big trouble specially when they have tried to hurt you . That will get confused about their actions. Such an attitude will keep you at peace , without being affected. This smile will act as a shield.

“Style is a reflection of your attitude and your personality” says Shawn Ashmore.


The attitude comes from not what you wear but how you carry yourself and present yourself in front of other. Swami Vivekananda’s iconic speech in Chicago is still in our ears. His words will always inspire the youth. He didn’t bother what he was wearing as it was different from what those people used to wear. His attitude came out rightly through his words and his personality.

“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it” says Bruce Lee.

Your attitude is what you own. You need not to look around and see how people are looking or solving the problems in their life.  Wear your own attitude. You need not to borrow from others. Your life is your own. So be the master of your life. Walk with the right attitude and see how it works for you. You have to live for yourself , not for society.

Remember what Zig Ziglar, the American author and motivational speaker said:

“It is your attitude, not your aptitude, that determines your altitude.”

There is lot to learn from this motivational speaker who always carried a positive attitude throughout the hurdles he faced in his life. His right attitude towards the life in the end gave him a success. He transformed his failures , loses and falls into the stairs to reach at the top. Failures are stepping stones to success

Such real life stories always motivates us. Another example is Dr Seuss who was rejected many a times. He turned the harsh voices of engine into words inthe ship. Nobody believed in his creative way of writing. Today he is the favourite among the children.

Are we carrying the right attitude in our life ?? Has ever the changing the attitude towards a problem changed the whole scenario??? Think about that moment !!

Beach Walk from Coogee to the world famous Bondi beach

After a short visit to local market in Sydney we decided to explore the beaches in Sydney the next day.

The new day started early morning drive to Coogee beach to witness the beautiful sunrise at this beach. The Sun welcomed us by rising up from the sparkling water of the sea. The sight of bright yellow sunlight was good enough to fill our hearts with positivity, love , joy and peace on this Christmas Day

The next was to walk towards the Bondi beach. It was a stretch of about 5 – 6 kms. It includes some steep walk on stairs too. It make take around 2 to 3 hours depending upon how you want to enjoy the nature and number of halts you want to take on the way.

1. Coogee beach – The beautiful sunrise, golden carpet of sand and lush green grass.People of all ages were jogging , giving the message that no matter what your ages , you have to choose to stay fit and healthy.

After climbing few stairs and up and downs of the roads , I could see the some bushes , tall trees and big lawns. The sounds of waves and someone playing violin sitting beside the sea shore, what else you want the nature to give it to you.

The rocks on the shores with some stills of water was giving an amazing view.

I bet you can’t see such a neat and well maintained beaches anywhere in the world. This beach is having a separate pool for the kids too.

The scenic beauty can’t be described in words nor with pictures. On the way to next beach is a big Waverly Cementary.  It is an heritage-listedcemetery on top of the cliffs at Bronte . It is regularly cited as being one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world. The cemetery contains the graves of many significant Australians including the poet Henry Lawson.

Everlasting beauty

PicsArt_10-24-06.57.49

There is no harm to work upon your outer beauty as this is something which the other person encounter with the very first . But don’t forget to give time to your inner beauty …. Your Soul . This is everlasting , immortal and will never get old.

Ms Arora 💕💕

🤔🤔What do you do to beautify your soul?

When you need something more than words

A gentle warm touch of mother can make the world of a child safer and secured…

A gentle warm touch of your friend can immediately give you an assurance….

A gentle warm touch of your beloved can lift up your mood…

A gentle warm touch is a need of person specially when words are not enough to express your feeling. It act as psychological boost for the body and help a person to combat with the difficult situations of life.

It can be felt as the emotions flow from your brain to the other person. In other words , we can say the unseen positive  energy flowing through our body can be felt when you touch someone.

There are some therapies too that follow this concept like Reiki or Therapeutic therapy. These are based on some of the powers mentioned in ancient scriptures and been followed by ancient people. Though there are not proper scientific evidences for it , yet it has its own importance.

Unfortunately we have forgot this aspect of the touch in our lives. The touch,  now a days , has taken another shape. This is something need to be pious ,pure , healer, caring and supportive .

We must too understand when does a person need a touch and of what kind ? Is the next person ready to accept it ? Will you be able to convey your thoughts , your concern , your love or your support through your touch ?

Think about the touch you have received in your difficult times through your friend as a hug….

Think about the touch when you were in high fever and some one sat near you and put a caring hand on your forehead…

There are many instances in our life when we look for it and there are many moments when we received such feelings through a gentle touch…!!!!

Not only human beings animals to understand the language of touch. They are not able to speak your language yet they express their feelings through touching you.

Give this happiness to someone today and see the magic of your touch.

Hold the hand of the one who is looking for a promise from you.

Give a big hug to the one whom you have hurt to say sorry without words…

Give a gentle pat at the back of the one who has put a lot of effort and hardwork to achieve his goal…..

I am sending you the virtual hugs if you too in need of it… Hope it makes you better and joyful.

A virtual hug , need a gentle warm touch , journey of life continues

With lots of love and wishes for this festival season.

Ms Arora💕💕

Do you  remember any such touch which helped you ? Must be many! Do share any one !
