Titbit Thought #29

It is our effort, no matter what the result of it is. Others’ opinions doesn’t matter. 

If you are true to yourself and feel complete satisfaction without an iota of regret, then that is what you need to keep on moving. 

What people think of your efforts is none of your business, even if people judge you when it is none of their business. 

You do not need others to validate your efforts. 

Tap on your own shoulder and move on with your head held high.

Titbit Thought #28

There is no rule in life that it has to be lived perfectly. It is not a crime to make mistakes. What is wrong is to make the same mistake twice. 

Mistakes are what are required to grow a level up in life; to not linger in stagnancy. Mistakes are opportunities that we stumble upon to acquire knowledge. So be happy when you make more mistakes because it provides you with a chance to gain some lessons from it. 

Titbit Thought #27

The highest level of maturity is when you realize that it is more important to make yourself feel satisfied, make yourself feel happy instead of pleasing others. 

The contentment when you try to do things for your own happiness, instead of considering the judgement of others or waiting for others to do things for your happiness, is when you can feel pure liberation. 

Titbit Thought #26

It is not fair on the job you do, or for the person you do, if, in the back of your mind, you have ‘Sorry’ as the go-to option. 

Even before you start the work, if you have some excuse prepared,  then it transcribes into how much you really want that work to workout for you. 

If you are doing something nice for someone else and have an apology prepared to fall back on if things didn’t  happen as it should,  then it signifies your real intention of how much you really wanted to do it for them or how they really matter to you in the first place. 

TITBIT THOUGHT #24

‘Change is the only thing that doesn’t change.’ – This is a familiar sentence that we are used to hearing often. 

Sometimes when we are in a good place in life, there is a constant fear in mind that a ‘Change’ might come and disrupt what you’ve got. 

How many of us have thought,  ‘What if I don’t want to change?’ 
The truth is, change is going to impose itself on you, whether or not you want it. And the best way to survive in life is to prepare for the change, try to adopt to the changes, or even better make a change by yourself! 
Surprise the ‘Change’ in your life by taking the first step towards Change by yourself! 

Life will be much more simpler that way! 

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

This book was long due for many years. I don’t know why I kept putting it off to take this book and read it. But, man, I am glad that I get to read it finally!!

This is one of the greatest books I have read in quite a while. No wonder it has risen to become one of the best-selling books in the world. The first in the Millennium series, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is about a Swedish journalist, Mikael Blomkvist, who made allegations against a billionaire, but wasn’t able to prove his testimony in the court and thus lost the case. 

When Mikael is glooming on his defeat, he is invited by Henrik Vanger, the head of Vanger Corporation, to help him solve a case by offering lucrative money and most importantly, important proofs against the billionaire against whom he had lost the case. Since his career as a journalist was almost over, he found no reason to not accept the assignment.

The assignment was to find out his grandniece, Harriet, who went missing many years back. Henrik Vanger provides him with all the evidence which he had collected over the years. Lisbeth Salander, who aptly signifies the title, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, helps him in his case. 

The character Lisbeth Salander was inspired from Steig Larsson‘s real life, when he stood by and watched his acquaintance, Lisbeth, being gang-raped when he was at the age of 15. After that, consumed by guilt, he tried to earn her apology but could not. This character Lisbeth Salander, who is also a rape survivor, is a shadow of the real Lisbeth from his life.

The sad part of the book is that Stieg Larsson died before the book was published. A man who has so brilliantly written such an intricate plot with lots of characters, keeping the clarity intact is to be accoladed. 

A brilliantly crafted book worth spending some worthwhile time. 

I’m waiting eagerly to start on the second book of the Millennium!

Titbit Thought #22

The war between the heart and the brain is incessant. While most of the time heart wants to give us immediate happiness,  the brain comes in between and speaks about the logic of doing things for lifelong happiness.

Sometimes in this war, we are the ones who gets caught up and ends up wounded.
