There are times when people get down, depressed, broken, shattered by fate or by chance or deliberately by someone or the other reason.  They feel themselves like in a dark pit surrounded by most vicious of animals around them, ready to pounce and make their appetite.  Well, Guys!!  Life isn’t that bad as it seems like in the above stated words of mine.


It is always your call, your decision, and your own choice to decide what you want from it.  I have always said to everybody whosoever I met that it is what you make out of your life is important and not what is meant for you by the fate, as it is only present which belongs to you not the past or the future.  You always live the moment, not live the past or future because you cannot change what is done and you cannot control what is going to happen, but what you can do is live the best out of present moment.


Here are some tips to get yourself charged up if you are feeling depressed.  Just follow these and find yourself inspired and rejuvenated with life full of possibilities.


Forget past

Do not even care to think about what was it because it will yield you nothing but depression and pain which you want to leave behind.  Try to concentrate on present make it better, live it.


Concerned what other think ?

What do people think of you when you do anything is getting to your head and bothering you.  Leave it aside as it is nothing but hindrance in your growth and happiness.  Try to live a carefree life, stop thinking about what people are thinking about you and enjoy.


Time heals !!

Yes, time is really a good medicine for everything.  You know how, because it keeps on changing and is never the same.  Give time to everything in your life as it is best you can do to inspire yourself and grow.


You are the reason !!

No one is the reason of your happiness, but you and you only.  It is what you do to yourself makes you happy and sad.  So, come out of the box, make yourself feel good and be happy.  It is not so much difficult as it looks like.


Don’t compare !!

Do not compare you lifestyle and life with anyone else because everyone has his own.  Try to be contained within what you have and what you can be by concentrating on present.  Just be focused to your goal and you will get what you want.


Too much reasoning !!

Just do not go into the topic so much that you forget what you were actually going to do.  Just stay focused on the goal and evaluate the pros and cons of the situation and act accordingly.  It will definitely yield in success.  But too much thinking will yield you nothing and exhaust you to the point of hopelessness and helplessness.



Well, this is the most easy thing which you can do to inspire yourself.  Smile, it does not cost you a penny.  It will just boost your self-esteem and give you the power to be on the top of the world.  Smile can do miracles where other things can’t, so be happy and smile.


These are all the tiny little things that we tend to forget when we are angry, depressed, or in a situation when stress is too much.  I would not guarantee that this would work but what is wrong in giving it a try, I think there is nothing to lose by following it.







It had been several days now, but there was no improvement in grandma’s health.  Doctor’s tried every option on hand still the prognosis was grave.  Grandma was not showing any signs of recovering, just lying still on the bed, not able to respond to any commands, as if just a stone sculpture was kept in the corner of the room with all the ER machines beeping around, nurses trying to attend, it was clear that there was no hope.

Three days past without being able to eat or take liquids, just staring at the walls and thinking when all this will end — doctors now felt the need to contact the family.

The telecaller from the hospital team called up the residence, a full ring — but no one picked up the phone.  Answering machine started and the caller left the message.  The telecaller informed the hospital staff of not being able to contact the family and hence had left a message.

The physician in-charge got desperate and checked who was the next of kin and tried to contact again but in vain.

Next day morning, a young man in his 30s, Fred, came to the hospital.  After inquiring on the help desk, he turned towards the room where grandma was there.  He went in slowly so as to not disturb grandma, but as soon as he opened the door and stepped in the nurse sitting by grandma saw that the fingers of grandma move and she blinked, as if she knew who was there in the room.

Fred sat down and asked the nurse about the state of grandma.  She said all the things that were in the chart note.  Hearing what the nurse said there were tears in the eyes of Fred.  The nurse requested Fred that he should talk to grandma and ask her to eat and drink so that she could improve and be out of here.

He talked to her, but she was just staring on his face.  He said to her many times and in return she babbled some words that he couldn’t understand.  Fred said many times but to no avail.  Everything seemed so still and listless.  There was complete silence in the room.  Fred’s mind had stopped working now — he wanted that grandma should become healthy and come with him but what he was not able to understand that why she was not able to listen him and why he was not able to understand her ?  This question was constantly running in his mind.

Just then Aunt Claire arrived to the hospital.  Claire lived across the street where grandma and Fred lived.  Claire saw that Fred was sitting near grandma; a smile came on Claire’s face, but was halfhearted.

Fred talked to Aunt Claire, he said that he told grandma to eat and drink but she is not listening at all.  Nurses are trying to make her eat and drink still she is not responding. “She just keeps of babbling.  I just cannot understand her !!  What she is trying to say?”  Listening to what Fred was saying Aunt broke into tears.

Wiping her tears she said dear Fred, you say that you are not able to understand what she is saying.  She is the one who brought you up when your mom and dad died in car accident when you were 1-year-old.  At that time you cried, you babbled, but she knew every little gesture of yours, what you want and what makes you happy.  Now when she is in a state that she is not able to speak and is babbling you are saying ” I can’t understand what she is speaking !!!”

Fred, my dear, she does not want anything else than love, care, and a will to survive that his grandson is there by her side.  Just go and sit besides her, make her sit, give her something to eat and drink, and you will see the change.

Fred following the advice went and did the same.  After few days the doctors saw the miracle.  Grandma who was not willing to eat, who was just staring at the walls, was now hale and hearty, wanted to go home again and wanted to live.

Will is very strong in a person’s life as are love and care.  Love and care gives us the will and strength to fight against all odds in life.  No matter how difficult the time is, no matter how dark the night is, the dawn beckons.

 “A will will find a way.”
