Back again with Purpose of Life :)

I took 15 days leave of absence from my blog 🙂 Actually I was a lil frustrated with life 😛

Am doing relatively better now 🙂

Well, the article that motivated me to write again is one by my very favorite Steve Pavlina

 shapeimage_1.jpg

I was reading the article “How to Discover the purpose of your life” by him and am quite inspired.  I am always moved and inspired by his writing. To discover the purpose of life he suggested to do the following:

  1. Take out a blank sheet of paper or open up a word processor where you can type (I prefer the latter because it’s faster).
  2. Write at the top, “What is my true purpose in life?”
  3. Write an answer (any answer) that pops into your head. It doesn’t have to be a complete sentence. A short phrase is fine.
  4. Repeat step 3 until you write the answer that makes you cry. This is your purpose.

So, who ever is reading this should try finding the purpose of their own life !! I am still working to find out mine 😉

Out Of Blog Notice!

The way we have “Out of Office:Autoreply” this is my temporary out of blog notice. I am going through some down moments of life, unless I recover I am taking a temporary break!!

Reason Behind Depression!

Found a nice article by Steve Pavlina on the cause behind depression. Here is some part quoted from: http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2006/06/overcoming-depression/

“Let me be very direct. It isn’t your situation that’s causing you to feel depressed. What depresses you is the attention you give to that situation. Your life may indeed be filled with circumstances you don’t want, but that isn’t the real source of your depression. Negative circumstances can only induce depression when you focus your attention on them. If you withhold your attention, your circumstances are powerless to affect you, regardless of how bad they seem.

Consider a simple example. Suppose you’re deep in debt with no end in sight, and you hate being in debt. The debt is only depressing when you think about it. If you think about something else that makes you happy, something good about your life, then at least temporarily, you won’t be depressed. So it’s not the existence of the debt that depresses you. It’s only your noticing the debt and not wanting it that depresses you.

Another example: Suppose you’re feeling lonely. You notice you don’t have an intimate relationship, and that makes you feel lonely. But is it the absence of the relationship that makes you feel lonely? Or do you only feel lonely when you pay attention to the fact that you don’t have the relationship you desire? When you’re engrossed in a really good movie or a compelling book, you completely forget that you’re lonely, don’t you? But if you stick your head up and notice you’re all alone, or if you notice a happy couple and contrast it with your own situation, then your loneliness quickly returns.

I know this sounds overly simplistic and perhaps even useless, but just humor me for a moment. I think you can agree that you only feel depressed while you pay attention to negative circumstances, such as your lack of money, lack of a relationship, or lack of good health. But here’s the key point: Your circumstances are NOT the true source of your depression. The true source of your depression is your attention… specifically your habit of putting your attention on what you don’t want. In the case of chronic depression, it’s likely that what you don’t want is what you’re already experiencing right now. So the simple act of noticing what you’re already getting is what’s really making you depressed.”

BMI

obese-kids.jpg

Note as of Feb 07, 2008: “I mis calculated, I am overwight not obese :)” 

I can not believe this…I calculated my BMI and it falls into the category “obese”…I am surprised…I used to think am little fat…but have not crossed the boudaries….how come it is possible 😦

We all should calculate our BMI and see which category we fall to and take actions on it if needed….like am planning on doing somehitng about it 🙂

BMI means Body Mass Index,  and here is how to calculate this (collected from http://adhunika.org/blog/2008/02/05/is-it-time-to-mend-my-heart/#more-299)
To determine your BMI

  1. Multiply your weight in pounds (lb) X 705.
  2. Divide that number by your height in inches.
  3. Divide that number by your height in inches again.
  4. Use the following chart to see how you tip the scale.

□ If your BMI is less than 18.5, you are underweight.
□ If your BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9, you have healthy weight.
□ If your BMI is between 25 and 29.9, you are overweight.
□ If your BMI is between 30 and 39.9, you are obese.
□ If your BMI is 40 or higher, you are extremely obese.

Nostalgic Rain!!

_41856600_rickshaw_afp416.jpg

I used to love rain even a year ago. Once I started my professional life I started realizing the impact it has on daily life and how it parlyzes the daily activities. Its raining heavily today. When I was coming to office through this heavy rain I suddenly felt the same nostalgic feeling I used to feel before, a nice lost feeling…..like the rain drops are making music in my ears….rather than finding it irritating I enjoyed it ….I felt like dancing in the rain 🙂

I became nostalgic and remembered those wonderful days I spent in shattered road side tea shops in Bangladesh drinking tea ..enjoying the rain….sometimes eating “khichuri and egg”….also the wonderful rides in Rickshaw …I so much miss those days…those beautiful moments…..

I wish I could get a ride on a Rickshaw now…I wish I could have some khichuri with egg…..I wish I could sip through a cup of tea listening to some soothing Rabindra Sangit…..watching these beautiful raindrops…..

“Aji jhoro jhoro mukhoro badol dine…………….janine janine…kichute kenoje mon lagena…”
