Rekindling the inner spark

I am scared of skydiving and it really leaves me amazed as to how some people just jump in mid air, perform various maneuvers and then all of a sudden pull the ripcord of the parachute so that they can land safely .But this sport directly or indirectly taught me a big lesson in life, a lesson on "self trust".
Yes, its the trust on oneself that makes a skydiver jump in mid air and rule the sky , without worrying about what would happen next, because he knows that his hand would definately pull the rip cord when the time comes..........more than the parachute, he trusts himself , he knows that he would be able to handle the situation. Its important to trust oneself , where ever you are, what ever you may do , if you know that your conscience is clear theres no looking back . By not trusting ourselves we fail to recognise our inner worth, what we are capable of and what may be able to do which otherwise seems to be impossible . Possibilities knock at our door step but we turn a blind eye because we are unable to gather courage to counter them .Self trust can also be clubbed with self love, if we indulge in self love we would be able to trust ourselves more easily. Self love is not about being selfish, its about acknowledging who we are, accepting our negatives and positives and then inturn working on them with a positive mind.
People exercise to keep themselves fit , some of them even after loosing weight crib about the fact that they haven't lost much and look as out of shape as they used to before, but some feel elated after seeing a minor variation and work towards more, congratulating themselves for their hardwork and getting inspired by others in the process, theres no scope of jealousy because they know that they can work towards a better future and can also appreciate others who they think have been living a good life.
Welcome life with open arms, accept the things that it has given us, by the end of the day if we have faith in our abilities, nothing would seem impossible.......nothing at all.
"Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement."Foster C. Mcclellan

Love Thyself... It's a well written and an insightful article... You're wise beyond your years and am truly glad to have made an aquaintance with you.

You remind me of what i'd forgotten over these years and have shut my eyes to.

I missed your birthday... But hope you had a lovely one... and wish you a thousand more to come

I am so sorry for the goof up. Guess it was someone else whom I was mistaking you for.
