“Try to do small acts of kindness as there is immense happiness in giving, but do this without any expectations”
Life is an adventurous journey and everyone has a choice to move forward In this travel. Some take it as an easy stroll and some take it as a challenge.

Be Open To Change
As Confucius has pointed out, “The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm” – thus, resistance creates friction. This friction not only increases the negative field around you, but it also doesn’t allow you to understand and analyse the situation. So, be open to the changes and challenges that happen in your life.When you are open to these changes without any resistance and judgement, you tend to understand the people involved in it and the intricacy of the situation that paves a way to deal with it.
You may have experienced a situation, whereby you are not able to find your keys or an important document when you desperately search for it. You search everywhere and get exhausted and then vent your frustration on others and on yourself. But after a while when you are not looking for it any more, it shows up on its own, on a couch or at some other familiar place where you had already searched. This is how life works. When you chase something out of desperation, or frustration you never find it!
Don’t Worry About The Result
