Queen Diaries : Transformation From Princess to Queen

#TransformationFromPrincessToQueen
#QueenDiaries #Freedom

Long Long ago, in a tiny empire lived a Emperor with his Queen and his three children. Two Prince and one Princess.

The Princess being youngest in the family was pampered a lot but was never differentiated from her brothers in terms of learning. She got to learn all the skills which her brothers were taught. Emperor never wanted his daughter to remain as a tender rabbit. He wanted his daughter to be a Lioness. So he ensured, she got trained so and he prepared her to be a Lioness by involving her in several decision making activities of the Empire.

One fine day, Emperor called Princess and asked her “My dear Princess! Now that you have grown into a beautiful and strong Young Woman, I want to check with you about your plans for your future. Do you want to get married to a well settled king.” Princess replied “Papa! I want to explore the World, I want to be on my own, I want to become something..a best version of myself…I want to help people…I want to make you proud. Then I would want to marry, till then I want to explore the World by myself using all the skills you taught me and the values imbibed in me, in a true sense I want to transform from a Princess to Queen by myself”.

Emperor was lil bit worried listening to the plans of Princess. However, he knew his Princess is a Lioness material and he agreed to her plans.

However, the Queen Mother objected to the idea of Princess. She said to Princess “Did you ever hear any other empire Princess doing this. Don’t you know it’s a tradition that Princess get married to other empires Kings and become Queen, this is the easiest and traditional way to become Queen”.

Brothers of the Princess were worried and with concern they warned their lil sister by saying “My dear Sister! World is not easy place outside our Empire. There are cunning people who want you to fail, they put you in trouble, you may fail, you will get hurt…you aren’t used to tough life…you are our precious baby Sister. Don’t go outside the empire…do whatever you want to do in our Empire..we will bring those things to you”.

Princess was moved by the concern of her Mother and siblings, however with the support of her father, she convinced everyone in the family about her enthusiasm and zeal to achieve everything which transforms her from Princess to Queen.

The day arrived, the day on which she had to leave the palace and live like a common person that too in another Empire. Emperor was concerned but didn’t show the concern in his expressions as he didn’t want his Princess to make feel weak. Queen cried worrying about the upcoming hardships of her daughter. Brothers insisted they drop their sister at least till the border of the Empire. While dropping her at the border, They even suggested her, it isn’t too late to comeback to the palace. However, the Princess insisted that she is determined about her journey and promised her brothers that she will send message to them and seek their help when she is in danger and has no more energy to continue her journey.

Life outside Palace that too as a common person was different for the Princess. It was exciting, it was tough. Things which she got done in her palace within a flip of a hat took so much effort and hard work for the Princess in outside world. But she enjoyed that hard work too. She made new friends. Some friends cheated her. Some illtreated her, not knowing she is a warrior princess. However, she controlled her anger, her cry. She remembered all the words spoken by her Dad, Mom and Brothers.

She felt good when she explored new places, New cultures, New people, New food. They weren’t bad. But deep in her heart, she missed her family her palace, the royal treatment. However, she learnt enjoying the new places, New people’s presence and her new way of working and earning stuff. She being a warrior princess and having leadership traits, she could lead small groups in New places too. People started seeking her expertise. The local heads got envious of her, they attacked her. She retaliated. She failed. Meanwhile, a elderly head of the colony saw the warrior qualities in the Princess and mentored her about the inner strength. He advised her on how not to react to every external disturbance and how to be strong and never give up. She retrained herself with the elderly person teachings. She learnt how to deal the new fights.

Meanwhile, the Emperor got to know about the hardships of the Princess through his spies. He sent a message to Princess, if she needs help and is she considering to come back to Empire. Princess sent message that she is fine and she has good help from New mentors and new friends.

Slowly, Princess continued her journey to new places. Sometimes it was unbearable for her to lead life like a commoner. However, when it was necessary, she cried but again consoled herself and continued her journey.

Meanwhile in the Empire, everyone blamed the Emperor for sending his lil princess into tough world alone. He too regretted some moments, however he had complete trust in his Princess, he knows she will be the best Queen anyone can ever think of after this journey of her Princess.

Some years passed, the Princess slowly transformed to a mighty Queen. In this journey, somany new Emperors got to know about her. She built ties with several Empires. She came back home victorious. Emperor, Queen and The Sibling Prince were glad to see her back with lots of learning, achievement. In this journey, she became the brand ambassador of her Empire and she represented her Empire very well and in return she built good relations with other Empires.

This is a Story of a Lil Princess who transformed into a Mighty Queen by herself with the support of Family, Mentors and Friends.

Dedicated to all the girls who want to make their mark in this World. Let your daughter explore her best version by giving her enough freedom she deserves.

Happy Republic Day

Loads of Love,

Self Worth 

​”Self-worth”

For anyone that experiences a major traumatic event the question of self-worth becomes very important.  Regardless of the event, it is easy to conclude that it was experienced either because of a lack of worth to others or, more painfully, a lack of worth to God.  When others hurt us this pain can be internalized and tied to the insecurity of value.  We begin to think that if only we were more valuable we would not have been treated this way.  This easily develops into the belief that we must not even have value to God or he would not have allowed these things to come into our lives.  We believe the voice inside of us that says, “no one cares.”

A misunderstanding of our own worth can lead us to do one of two things.  Either we accept that we have no value and live or die as one who is worthless, or we fill our minds with empty “happy talk” that may prop up our esteem for a while but will ultimately let us down.  Our value is not based either on what others think about us or what we think about ourselves.

We have value because we were created in the image of God to have a relationship with Him!  We are intrinsically valuable regardless of how we feel, how we are treated or what we experience.  This is a difficult thing to understand.  We so closely tie the events of life to our worth that we have a hard time separating the two.  What happened to you or how you were treated should not define you and has no bearing on how much God loves you!  You are so valuable, in fact, that Christ paid for your sins so that He could have a relationship with you!

The “why” of life’s events may never be explained, but don’t ever believe that those events somehow define your worth.

You are loved.  You are valuable. You have a bright future because the one who created you has a plan for your life that you alone can fulfill.

Some Sunday Thoughts…

​#SundayThoughts 

Sometimes, I forget from how much strong background I come from. I forget what values of strength my parents instilled in me. Shame on me!! Just that some morons belittle me…how did I forget who I am…how strong I am….why did I forget the lessons of Dad..

My Dad is the first role model. After a rich and wealthy childhood; in his early teens, they lost the property and farms. Dad started his career at 16 th year as “Messenger”( the role just above sweeper) in the bank. He rose to the level of Senior Manager in due course of years. He never cursed his fate, instead dreamt great dreams in that gutter level of life too…..and in all these journey he never compromised on his value system. He never asked for favors, he got transferred to all the odd towns, but like a “Lotus”, he bloomed wherever he was posted.

My Dad reminds us( the siblings) “Don’t forget your roots. Don’t get carried away by the power, wealth and luxuries you have now. At any cost don’t forget thanking, meeting the people who were with you in your bad times. The people you have around you when are powerful and wealthy are not the real wellwishers…Don’t disrespect these new people but don’t count them, they will leave you as soon as their work with you is completed. At the same time, don’t forget improving yourself constantly, dream high, achieve your dreams with your hard work. Don’t trade your self-esteem for a better job, better promotion. Become best version of yourself by your own efforts…that’s real happiness; never make fun of others we never know about tommorrow”.

If TIME can lift you to Abnormal HEIGHTS, the same TIME can push you to Abnormal Low levels too…be so self sufficient and capable that you can rise again..yeah meanwhile don’t make mockery of others who are struggling and don’t get jealous who are winning…everyone has their day….kindness matters..hurting and killing others doesn’t lead anywhere 😀 .And if you feel happy degrading others and belittling others…then definitely you have a problem.

Just a beautiful and important thought to ponder ❤

Have a beautiful Sunday.

Loads of Love,

4 ways to build a human company in the age of machines

HiAll,

Got to watch a beautiful TED talk on “4 ways to build a human company in the age of machines”. So am sharing it here. Do watch it.

To maintain our humanity in the this second Machine Age, we may have no other choice than to create beauty. Beauty is an elusive concept. For the writer Stendhal it was the promise of happiness. For me it’s a goal by Lionel Messi.So bear with me as I am proposing four admittedly very subjective principles that you can use to build a beautiful organization.
First: do the unnecessary.

The second principle: create intimacy.

Third: The risk to be ugly.Be UglyTo be authentic is to be ugly.

Fourth: Remain Incomplete

So to do the unnecessary, to create intimacy, to be ugly, to remain incomplete — these are not only the qualities of beautiful organizations, these are inherently human characteristics. And these are also the qualities of what we call home. And as we disrupt, and are disrupted, the least we can do is to ensure that we still feel at home in our organizations, and that we use our organizations to create that feeling for others.

 

 

Warm Regards,
