Take Leave or Leave It

Image
I always believe that in a year you should take atleast 1-2 big holidays and also few weekend trips. It gives you time to breath fresh air and get out of that monotonous life called 'work'. But organisations in India, especially if it's an Indian organisation, they will treat leave as Criminal offense. As if, we are the only one responsible for work and without us organisation - Can't work.


I have worked in 4 - 5 organisation and everywhere I have faced the same problem. The senior and people at higher level feel that we are not dedicated towards our work because we take leave for ourselves. I mean, why being so judgmental? Leave, whether it's paid or unpaid, it's the right of every employee and everyone can decide when they want to take it or not. Why supervisor and their bosses think that we are breaking some rule by taking leave. If your boss is taking it, it's ok as he/she worked so hard but you.. Nahhhh! It can't be done!

In abroad, leave is a rig…

Yet Another Step..

Life is ever changing. Each day we think of taking new step ahead or we take back the step we took before. Each moment of life, we analysed, we get happy or we get sad, we relish or we regret. Every moment of our life is a step, whether it's taking up new job, joining a college, getting married or buying a house.. all this is a step taken ahead in your life.

At the same time, there are few steps which we wish to take back. Divorce, Leaving a job, staying in a particular city and so on. It is said that life moves on, if one day is bad doesn't mean whole life is bad.. but when you are in dark all you see is darkness. If a person losses his/her job, they wont see this as an opportunity to do something else. If a person gets another job, he will think that it is a new step but that job might worth taking.

Step towards happiness are memorable step in our life. All those happy moments.. falling in love, finding a friends, time spent with family.. all these steps brings a new spark …

Biggest struggle we face in our life is to have patience. Either it’s passing the test or making food, everything every act of our need patience. Patience is nothing but waiting with hope that it will happen soon.
Personally I find it difficult to have patience. I am too eager to wait for anything, I am judge too soon, I analyse too fast or I just want things done at the earliest. Because not having patience we often feel disappointed and start self-doubting. This feeling normally comes when we are facing trouble or difficult time. During those days it is important to believe, it is important to have that positive ray of hope that things will turn up fine. We constantly need to remind ourselves that something good is there for us, that bad phase will pass.

It is rightly said that life is struggle, whether it is breathing air or just walking, each moment each time is struggle. But this struggle can be fun when we do it or see it as challenge. Challenge makes us take that extra step. Cha…
