HSM captions

High School Musical 😍 ooohhhh

I loveeeee… Absolutely LOVE the songs from HSM!

These lyrics are so damn relatable and beautiful, I couldn’t help but think that some of these could also be used as cool instagram captions.

So here are some of the lyrics I think could be awesome captions –


Everyday of our lives, wanna find you there wanna hold on tight 💙

No matter where we’re going it’s starts from where we are 💕

We’re soaring… Flying💓

You are the music in me 🎶

As I am
you understand
and that’s more than I’ve ever known♥️

I gotta go my own way💜

I thought you were my fairytale…💫

Coz I liked the view when there was me and you 💞

Keep your eyes locked to mine
and let the music be your guide✨

My heart is wherever you are ❤️

It’s like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you…♥️

With every step together, we just keep on gettin better 💝

Winter Spring and Summer and we’re back to Fall
we’ve been together hand in hand through it all ❤️

I’d go spinning round the sun with you again and again and again…..💗

I think I kinda you know……

A moment in love…❤️

and the people stayed home

And the people stayed home.
And read books, and listened, and rested,
and exercised, and made art,
and played games, and learned new ways of being,
and were still.
And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced.
Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
And the people healed.
And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways,
the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again,
they grieved their losses, and made new choices,
and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.

– Kitty O’Meara


how we interpret causes

When things go wrong…

Rohit – bro, I heard you didn’t get selected in the finals

Rahul – yeah.. i injured my knee just before the semifinal match during practice.. that’s why I couldn’t perform my best

And also I couldn’t communicate with my coach.. some of the guys from opposing team were bullying some of my friends. Our coach had some emergency and couldn’t attend the match. If he would have been there he would have done something about it and given us a moral boost. He always motivates us and we have great faith in him.. it would have been helpful if he was here…

But it’s okay. We cannot control everything right? I will ask the coach about next tournament and start the training right away. We will kill it this time!!


Rohit – bro, I heard you didn’t got selected in the finals

Varad – yeah.. it’s very sad. I know we could have done better. We failed and it’s completely our fault..

I am feeling so bad about this… I don’t want to go for any tournament now… I am really disappointed with myself.. I had worked so hard for this, practiced for hours.. I don’t think I can get better and we can ever win


When things go right…

Rohit : bro I heard you won the championship! Congrats man!!

Rahul : thank you! It was really awesome! The way I hit the last goal, everyone was in awe.. We all had worked really hard for this.. this is the success of our team!

I am so happy to be part of this team! With the help of such good teammates and wonderful coach.. we did it!

Yayy!!!


Rohit : bro I heard you won the championship! Congrats man!!

Varad : oh well.. thanks but it wasn’t really me. I mean it was teamwork, they all worked really hard


What can we learn from these two conversations?

Sounds familiar?

Who would you rather be? Rahul or Varad?

When things go wrong, we try to blame ourselves as the cause and feel negative. When things go right, we undermine ourselves and do not feel as happy as we should.

It’s so ironical isn’t it?

Maybe it would be of great help if we look for causes of negative outcomes outside of ourselves and give ourselves credit for the good things that happen in our life. ❤️

Changing the destructive things you say to yourself when you experience the setbacks that life deals all of us is the central skill of optimism.

– Martin Seligman

.

People who believe they cause good things tend to like themselves better than people who believe good things come from other people or circumstances.

– Martin Seligman

you should persist

Teacher : Sanjana, how is your practice going for the competition? It’s a big opportunity for you.

Sanjana : It’s not going so well. I tried doing the triple flip, but I can’t. It’s just too hard.

Teacher : I understand, it took me time to practice it too. But keep going I’m sure you’ll do great

Sanjana : that’s very kind of you.. but I don’t think I really have what it takes to become a good dancer. I have seen Seema dance much better than me, we joined together but she’s much more talented than me

Teacher : Can I tell you a secret?

Sanjana : what?

Teacher : You think Seema is naturally talented, but she isn’t. Neither am I. You know how much she practices in a day? 6 hours and sometimes more.

Sanjana : what? Really?

Teacher : Yes, and if there’s something special about her, it’s that she doesn’t give up even when it gets tough.

You can do that too! I know you love dance. You should work a little harder. And you remember how excited you were when you got selected for this competition don’t you?

Sanjana : yeah.. I was so happy that day! Since I was a little girl I saw dancers dance gracefully in this competition. I wanted to be one of them…

Teacher : See, this is your chance to finally turn your dream into reality. And don’t think much about the prize, just remember you have to dance like you’ve never danced before.. surrender yourself to the music and dance to express yourself.. your emotions.. your passion

Sanjana : wow.. I just got goosebumps..

Teacher : you have that spirit of a dancer. Don’t let fear of failing get in your way

And if you are struggling with some moves, talk to me. We will rehearse together. I will let you know how can you improve.

Sanjana : thank you! means a lot

Teacher : and I have faith in you Sanjana. Just be optimistic. Even if things go wrong or take time, don’t worry. Remember the dark clouds will eventually drift off and make room for sunshine.

You can do it, just work hard and keep a positive attitude and we’re here to help you! 🙂

Sanjana : thank you for helping me out! I will not give up.

Growth mindset

Some of us believe deep down that people really can change. These growth oriented assume that it’s possible, for example to get smarter if you are given right opportunities and support and if you try hard enough and if you believe you can do it. Conversely, some people think that you can learn skills, but your capacity to learn skills – your talent – can’t be trained. The problem with holding the latter fixed mindset view – and many people who consider themselves talented do – is that no road is without bumps. Eventually you’re going to hit one. At that point having a fixed mindset becomes tremendous liability. With a fixed mindset you’re likely to interpret these setbacks as evidence that, after all, you don’t have the “right stuff” – you’re not good enough. With a growth mindset you belive you can learn to do better.

Writing

The challenge of writing
Is to see your horribleness on page.
To see your terribleness
And then go to bed

And wake up the next day
And take that horribleness and that terribleness,
And refine it,
And make it not so terrible and not so horrible
And then go to bed again

And come the next day,
And refine it a little bit more,
And make it not so bad.
And then go to bed the next day.

And then do it again,
And make it maybe average.
And then one more time,
If you’re lucky
Maybe you get to good.

And if you’ve done that,
That’s a success.

– Ta-Nehisi Coates

I can totally relate to this one!

3. True or false

.

.

Right answer – B. If I do things perfectly, I can minimise or avoid the pain of blame, judgement and shame

Perfectionism is less about doing things right than it is about avoiding the consequence if you do it wrong. It’s more about pleasing others.

And if you think “your perfectionism” is not about all this, it’s just a genuine desire to make things right, then complete the task. Perfection comes with time and experience, you cannot wait until you make your very first poetry “perfect”.
