Making Sense of Life’s Changes

The Blog of Nishant Garg

I’ve been contemplating these quotes on clear communication, healing emotional triggers, awakening, stepping into a universe of possibility, deep connections, and much more. Please enjoy.


“If something you want is slow to come to you, it can only be for one reason: You are spending more time focused upon its absence than you are about its presence.” – Abraham Hicks

You can not build a deep connection with someone who’s disconnected from themselves. –Yung Pueblo

When triggers happen they change our mood. They change our behavior and our state of mind. Many of us walk around in a continuously triggered state causing us to see the world through clogged filters. And when we can’t see clearly we find it hard to make decisions and do behavior from a place of clarity. We get into a situation, get triggered, then blame the other person for our triggers. In reality, my triggers were mine, and I needed to process and release them before ever having the ability to be there for her with compassion. – Paul Colaianni

When I awoke into my infinite self, I was amazed to understand that my life could be dramatically different just by realizing that I am Love, and I always have been. I don’t have to do anything to deserve it. Understanding this means that I am working with life force energy, whereas performing at being loving is working against it. Realizing that I am in love was the most important lesson I learned, allowing me to realize all fear, and that’s the key that saved my life. – Anita Moorijani

“Think of what would be unlived in your life if it ended today”. You might actually write the obituary  – it’s a revealing exercise – but if you don’t want to do that, at least pause for a few moments and jot down notes on a piece of paper. – Excerpt from the book “Transitions: making sense of life’s changes”

I said: What about my eyes? God said: Keep them on the road. I said: what about my passion? God said: Keep it burning. I said: what about my heart? God said: Tell me what you hold inside it. I said: pain and sorrow? He said: Stay with it. The wound is the place where the Light enters you. – Rumi

When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this, I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.– Rumi

I settled on a game called “I am a contribution”. Unlike success and failure, contribution has no other side. It’s not arrived at by comparison. All at once I found out that the fearful question, “Is it enough”, and the even more fearful question, “Am I loved for who I am, or what I have accomplished?” could both be replaced by the joyful question, “How will be a contribution today?” – Excerpt From the book The Art of Possibility: Transforming Professional and Personal Life

So no, you don’t deserve better, and you don’t get a pony. Get a coach. A therapist. Find a support group. Read a book. Something! The harsh truth is that your relationships are not going to improve until you do something about it. Cancel the self-pity party and the I-Deserve-Betterpalooza. Shut down the excuse factory and put down the blame thrower. It’s time to heal. –Adam Murauskas

It’s not about expecting your partner to make you happy; it’s about clearly communicating the best ways they can support you as you travel inward to ignite your own happiness. – Yung Pueblo

I believe there are many definitions of success that there’s no one right way for success. And so I think it’s about finding, I, I consider the successful person as someone who is living their life with integrity, meaning, and purpose, and living their definition of success. Not the definition of success that society bestows on us or tells us is that successful. But one that really rings true to who they are true to their heart, true to what they stand for as a human. It’s one thing to be successful, but if it’s at the expense of your vitality or health or wellbeing, that’s when I would question your definition of success. So if we’re not taking care of ourselves, how can, how can we truly be successful in this world? – Jacinta Jimenez

I always want to tell people like, just go easier on yourself, just be kinder to yourself. So many of us are beating ourselves up because we don’t do this, or we didn’t do that. There’s actually an emotionally logical reason and try to find it so that you can really become whoever you were meant to be because everyone’s got some special gifts.– Denise Shull

According to my, successful people may not have the blue checkmark on Twitter or Instagram. They may not be social media influencers. The people that I know that are successful are individuals who were brave enough to say – something’s going on in my brain. I don’t know if this is ADHD, anxiety, or something that’s going on. And they have the courage to do something about their brain and mental health. They go back in with joy and a sense of purpose in their job. They’re the everyday teacher, principal, executive, the people whose names you and I will never know. They’re just another name on LinkedIn, someone collecting a paycheck, but they go, and then they have a chance to impact the team they lead and make everyone that works around them feel happier and healthier as well as the students in their classroom or their patients. They took a pause and realized they need to work on their brain and mental health. – Romie Mushtaq
