The Two Magic Words

It’s been exactly a year since I started my online venture called “Libby Creatio”. We all experience ingratitude moments now and then and I sometimes would love to hear the two magic words from time to time and it would be so wrong if I don’t thank my buyers.

I am writing this blog especially to all my customers and well wishers for all the support and enrichment you offered me all through the journey. I love and appreciate each and every individual soul. A big shout out and a massive “Thank you” to you all.

The words of appreciation and all the “wowing” (I don’t even know if it’s a word) phrases you use to describe my works makes me sit smiling like a monkey on the other side of the phone, which obviously you have no idea because I would have responded to you very decent enough for you not to sense my monkeyness (and again, it’s clearly not a word in the dictionary).

*oh oh mom interruption*

Ok, now I’m sitting here sipping a cup full of sanity (no, It’s cuppa, not coffee) as I put down all my thoughts into words, and I’m having brain farts at the moment, because this tea is really good it makes me miss on what I’m writing. My brain is so out of focus now.

Anyway back to business!

Some of the nicest compliments I’ve ever received are from a person who wanted to find out what inspires them after reading my previous blogs. That moment of source of inspiration you bring into someone’s thought for a second is what we need to work on.

“Make people feel good” is the mantra I practice while doing business with my fellow humans. Just like the boomerang effect.  We are nothing but a form of emotional creatures craving to be felt special and treated with the nicest words and respect in the world, and that is almost love in plain clothes.

And I don’t want you all thinking that my venture is all rosy with only happy people appreciating, Nada! Life is not just complete with negative incidents waiting to sneak somewhere through the corner and tear you down for a moment. Just so you know, only for a moment! As you all know whatever you come up new in life, someone, somewhere is waiting to have a good laugh about it or throw a mean comment at you. That is how life goes on, and guess what? They have all the rights to laugh and snicker at you and you equally have the power to pay no heed to them. Overlook each negative comment with a positive vibe.

You folks have inspired me so much to keep working and hustle hard to new and greater things. And to all my 57 customers so far, thanks a million to you all for having the confidence in me and giving me those wonderful orders for me to work on and be a part of your celebration and happy moments.  I feel incredibly blessed.

Just like how Rhonda Byrne says in one of her Gratitude books, “The more you use gratitude every day, the greater the good you will bring into your life”, I’ve done my part of gratitude to you, my buyers, now it’s time for you to go and make someone’s life you know a happy one today by extending your thanks to them.

Love and hugs!

The 4 Letter Magic word – “BOOK”

Early today morning, Facebook reminded me that, today being April 23rd is “World Book Day.” What better reason do I need to write my blog ? So let me tell you, I was a normal kid in school just like every other child studying and learning just my school books. Trust me, if I had read only those text books you wouldn’t be reading this. I would have murdered English by the time you reached second line (I mean, seriously). I remember my mother trying to teach me English grammar and going crazy on one side and I on the other side sitting with a confused face “What’s wrong mom?” So yes, she had a hard time (I suppose). And when those glorious summer holidays arrived, I can hear my dad persistently telling me to read books. And to my dismay every time he said that, my school books came to my mind and the fear of reading it again.

So when my English was going at stake, my parents decided to get me some brand new books to read which included, from famous five to hardy boys, Nancy drew to Goosebumps, Lion king to Pocahontas and all other lovely fairy tales. In each story I envisioned myself to be that persona, and pictured all the beautiful adventure. So that is how my childhood reading journey went on.

And after I reached college, I read few books, from Indian to international authors (Mostly novels). I was not an avid reader, maybe I was distracted towards more fun (sometimes the word laziness also fits). What shocked me is, when my fellow people started asking for help in language and grammar, I found that I was communicating quite in good grammar without even my knowledge. So all those childhood reading was really beneficial and advantageous.

Recently I have been into business, self – help and spiritual books, rarely novels. I would like to share some of the world class authors, who brought out the best in me through their writing, which involves, Napoleon Hill, Robin Sharma (my business guru), Joseph Murphy (the one who explains bible so beautifully), Brian Tracy, Rhonda Byrne, Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen (My life guides), and the list goes on. And I have this wonderful Friend named Harine, who along with me is taking up the book challenge 2016. And I’m happy to get her as my reading partner, as we share so much knowledge with each other. We’re discovering ourselves each day through the books we read. And today being the “world book day”, I decided to give her a book by Robin Sharma, one of her favourite authors and mine too (how could anyone not).  So if you’re planning to give your friend a gift or something, a book is the perfect choice. (maybe its time people start educating themselves to differ from mediocre people). Garrison Keillor once said “A book is the gift you can open again and again”. What more than you need than a book full of wisdom. Who knows you can even start your own business like I did, or become an author or improve yourself in your work place, anything can happen with all the motivation you acquire from it. So devote yourself to reading at least 30 minutes a day to differ from the crowd.

As for my mindset, the more the books a person has, the more rich he is.  Learning does not end upon graduation. Be a lifelong learner. I assure you, boredom will never show up on your doorstep as long as you have something to learn.

A house that has a library in it, has a soul. – Plato.

A book opens a door to your heart. – Libby

A house is a not a home without at least one book shelf with books. I have mine. Do you have yours? If not, bring that book shelf into existence.

Go get yourself a book and see yourself in it.

“Book” is the magic word all you need in life.
