Dear periwinkle,

Dear Periwinkle,

As the colour of your petals always warms my heart, 

please never stop yourself to have fresh starts,

live in a grandeur of humbleness,

may you always be filled with hopefulness.

taste nature in its simplicity,

smile and spread peaceful tranquility,

sing and soar high,

let your music run all pains dry,

mistakes will never be you,

keep them apart, make some new,

but learn good, learn well,

forever be you, strive to excel.

May Lord guide you in His light,

May your morrows always be, as you, bright.

Love always,

Lea.

(stay blest tachaaa… this is for you.. dil se re.. )

She who soars …

She smiled and said to the air around her,

‘Thank you for letting me go,

Thank you for now it’s my time to make a good show,

Whilst you change who stands at your side,

I’m getting a hell of a ride,

I’ve come way too far,

and from where you stand 

there’s no door left ajar

so you could see the goods I reap,

Of the harvest where I thought I was being punished,

for no fault of mine,

life had thrown you a dime,

but now I know Why !

because without you I am now soaring the skies.”

________________________________________________

Very often it is so difficult to let go 

of people who forsake you without reason,

or to digest the disappointments that come from people you could count on,

they just leave you hanging there,

whilst live a great life,

not once wondering about your existence.
Let me tell you dear,

it is when you begin to live and move on, 

you gain your freedom,

it is until you let go of the disappointments 

you can breathe in peace,

it is when you love yourself more,

you can feel relieved for such petty losses,

because quite frankly they weren’t your loss.

They will see you for what you are,

when you see yourself,

for what you are,

special, beautiful, unique.
And maybe then, when you finally fly with your wings,

you will no longer require to be dependent,

birds of different feathers never flock together,

infact birds of same feathers need not flock together as well.
Being independent, self reliant, 

is the key to own your being.
Happy new beginnings,

be happy loving you.

This too shall pass.

The speed at which life changes, people change, I change – is a mystery.

Phases dont last, things expire, humans die, we lose and we gain..

We are hurt , so we learn better.

We fall, to rise.

We are pushed beyond limits, so we can arc through the impossible and head to the targets swiftly.

What feeds our curiosity now, will not matter tomorrow.

The things that weigh you down now, bother you till you turn into an insomniac, will give you bittersweet smiles  in the days yet to come.

It wont matter. Today will be a yesterday tomorrow.

Focus on the good things. Let go of the depressive things. Distract yourself to build in your positive reinforcement.

Focus on getting stronger, better, wiser.

Failures will add on to your experiences at handling adversities. Failures will ensure you are grounded before you take flight. Every setback indeed is the key to a good comeback.

Success is not a standard that the world defines for you. It is not just about amassing wealth, it is not just about scoring amazing grades, it is not about promotions or achievements alone.

Success is beyond all that. It is that  peace and satisfaction and contentment you receive at this place where you reach and you know to accept that what all you have is enough. It makes you enjoy the little things. It makes you content with what is there, the now, not fretting about yesterday, not worrying about tomorrow. Success is living without greeding.

Remember…

The horizon will always look enchanting.

The sky will always be limitless.

And God? He will always be faithful.

But me ? In my walk to find the comforts of constants, resisting changes, I will still be learning, still be wondering, still be hoping.

In this temporary life, the thirst for constancy will always remain.

In the times I forget, that I have You Lord, let me remember to honour your presence within me.

To listen to your voice “this too shall pass.” And feel the tranquility.
Reading this made me smile…. ↓

#9 Random thought of the day 

Have you ever sat around to simply  listen to the pitter patter of the rains, watch the rain pearls hanging on the fragile branches, falling off the leaves ? Making those enchanting concentric circles in the water puddles or lakes ?

When was the last time you did that ?

What about paper boats ? Or dancing in the rain?

As kids we keep admiring things out of curiosity. As adults we find sitting around too lame.  We are always to busy to look around.

But if you dont go around and see the beauty in the smallest things, you will not find a way to rejuvenate your spirit.

Life is not always offering you snowflakes, sometimes you will have to dodge snow balls, or get hit by lemons.

It is up to you whether you’ll prefer making chilled lemonade and enjoy the bounty nature offers or prefer getting too busy to bother about  refreshing  your soul.

Live life in moments. 

Practice Self_love. Let nature fill the voids within. 

Feel blest today and everyday.

It is only :

when you love yourself, you can love others.

when you find time for yourself, you can make time for others.

when you accept yourself, you can envelope others.

You don’t need to fit in the world, you need to fix your inner world .

Only then will you realize how unnecessary it is to feel the need to fit in.

Accept peace when it is offered.

Again I repeat.

Small things. Small moments. Small steps. Smallest actions.

Have a great impact.

#1 Positive vibes for you

Hey buddy,…just go out there and enjoy the positive vibes. YoU’re more than the things that stress you out and truly wonderful..incredibly beautiful inside out. Let no one make you even once doubt that. .. we all need a fairytale.. but not the fairytale we read when small.. a fairytale where we learn to love ourselves regardless if the world will or not.. breathe out the pain and anxiety and breathe in happiness.. you can do this.. time for self happiness.. Time for nuturing and pampering yourself.. take a break.. and smile ..let the sun brighten you within.. No rat-spirit should kill your lion-spirit. You are over and above the lowlives that hurt you. If they can’t give you respect , its time you keep your self respect in check and gush on your merry way away from People pulling the wrong strings.

You dont have to lower your selfrespect standards for anyone, thats not compromising, that’s like your willing to butcher away your true self. Dont you dare do that.

You are worth more than petty pig opinions of poeple who really need to get their lives sorted out instead of having a gala time muddling yours.

If you are on your anxiety boats, sail to the seas of optimism, self discovery and self devotion.

You deserve a vacation to recharge yourself every once in a while. Remember YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE.

Sailing through the Storms!

” What does it profit a man to gain the whole wide world , but suffer the loss of his soul ?” Luke 9:25

I’ve been pondering on these lines for quite a while now.

How indeed is it proper ?

To be beautiful , but have an envious heart?

To be smart , but unkind and overly proud?

To be understanding , but only to a few?

To love, but conditions apply?

To give , but to want in return?

To make-believe that you are good , but beneath the facade lies a monster?

To hesitate with generosity,

To be clever, but not wise?

To grow into something more, wanting more, because less does not suffice anymore?

To hope, but have doubts?

To smile, whilst having a weary soul?

To dream, but not strive to achieve them?

To expect , but not do?

To cry and want a shoulder, but never wipe anyone’s tears?

To let go, but not forgive?

To be happy , but not fight your storms?

To be rich, but have a poor spirit?

To be nice to the world, but disobey one’s own parents?

To want a crown of glory , but not the responsibility?

To wish to be a child again, but not grow into an example for your child to follow?

 

How indeed it would feel to have all my wants and desires fulfilled? to never have pain? Never walk through storms? Never  meet trying people? Never see through the masks of many?

How would it feel to never know what feeling sad, depressed, demotivated is like? To have  low self-esteem,  to feel weary, dull and exhausted? To want to keep to oneself and stay away from bitter and good people? How would it feel to not know how to appreciate these storms of life? To not know the power of overcoming the hurdles? To not know what it really takes to become strong? To not know our limits of acceptance and patience whilst we are being shaped in the furnace? To not melt down into a puddle but be shaped into a stronger vessel?

How would it feel to not know the worth of sweating and every penny we earn? To not know that giving away something always and always fetches you silent blessings and smiles worth any treasure in the world?

Without the anxiety and sadness would you still know what happiness meant?

Would you  appreciate the growth in yourself after a deep struggle? Would you know the wisdom a storm delivers you that no book can teach you or warn you about?

Through depression, would you  have really understood how a small word of appreciation, motivation, a mere push or a smile could actually work wonders?

Sometimes it is through experience that we learn the greatest lessons of life. Some which your parents and elders warned you about , but you turned deaf. It is only when it so happens to us, that we begin to understand the complexities and simpleness of every life situation.

 

“I believe in you; and I want you to believe in yourself.

You indeed LIVE ONLY ONCE. So revive your drooping spirit,

Make truckloads of memories, fight and be victorious through storms.

Do not seek to gain wealth and the treasures of the world, but seek that- that would nourish your soul.

Be kind and kindness will follow you everywhere.

Motivate and appreciate and respect people, and you will have followers.

Be generous and you shall receive a bounty of blessings.

Be good, because the world needs  goodness.

PEOPLE ARE NOT BAD, THEY ARE WEAK. It is WEAKNESS that makes us  NEGATIVE.

We always have a choice to either be strong or weak. Choose wisely.

Be sensitive, so you remain human.

If you want success, never be ruthless ( now hey! You don’t want your spirit tarnished and no curses right?)

Success needs no competition, no crown of glory; it is a feeling of fulfilment that you have indeed achieved and that’s just it, not at the cost of jeopardising others.

Success should not make you greedy, just like rich people wanting to get richer. Sometimes you have to learn to remember when it is enough. To be happy with what you have.

Tell me- where will you take it all? Into your grave? For your future generations? WHY  ?? Do you really believe that they are incapable of sustaining themselves? Or do you never want them to taste all flavours of life and let them decide what they prefer? Stop making your generations lazy.

Do give your children more of that- that would help them face storms, to be strong, and support them whilst they go after their dreams- no matter how lame you think they are, they hold value in their vision. Even if they do mistakes ,help them grow through them.

If there’s anyone who tells me that they are the same person they were a decade back, all I can say  is that “ Dear , I feel sorry that you haven’t grown through the decade, because if  you would have, you would never be the same person- you would be either 10 times better or worse.”

Sometimes you gotta listen to your instincts. Take a leap, if that’s what its telling you.

No matter how deep your fear or downfall, you will lend somewhere, and gradually you will learn to rise above all.

You definitely need to plan and methodise your life. But sir! Don’t restrict yourself to your schedule so much that you forget to live life. Don’t be a workaholic, that your family would have to beg for a time slot .

Work hard, be efficient , become indispensable; BUT try not to get stuck in one place. Indulge in variety of tasks and you will learn to savour the flavours of success. Learning is indeed a beautiful process that adds to your intellect and knowledge. But it is only the storms and trials of life that will help you gain wisdom and stand tall  in jubilation after the battles.

“Life is a journey from one port to another, my ship won’t harbour in one place for too long. Because I need to set sail, move forward, navigate through different routes, prepare for storms sudden and unsudden, keep my mind calm in the most abnormal hours, experience the tides of life. And if my ship ever sinks, I need to learn to swim and surf through the mighty waves until my spirit says otherwise.”

“ My life is a journey to restore my soul.”

 

 

Brain and Heart talk

Brain: hey,  weren’t you supposed to study today?
Heart: yes. But I hadto go. And now I feel bad. I wasted another day. Didn’t I?
Brain: hmmm that depends. Tell me – what did you do with the day?
Heart:lots!! I laughed and smiled. Walked around. Breathed in some fresh air. Snapped away moments. Shopped with my family. Sang. Went to church. Bought some things. Strolled around making my feet ache.
Brain: great! Now tell me,did you once feel bad while you were engrossed with what u said you were doing that you didn’t do what you were supposed to do today?
Heart: not once. If I think of it now.
Brain:You have your answer. You didn’t waste your day.
Heart:Yes. Thanks. I LIVED IT.

Don’t live life eveyday like its a stress-storming episode all the time, like tomorrow is another exam.
It’s not worth it.
What if it ends tomorrow?
What if now my life ends? I die!
Have I really lived?
In the end, Job karke pet hi toh barna hai na (we haveto work somewhere and fetch our daily bread only right)? Itna stress, I dont think is worth it.

But in it all we never have to let go of our dreams.

Seriousness is required. But without compromising with  LIVING LIFE.

It shouldn’t cost us illness, negativity and loss and fear and everything that diminishes us.
To be frank, I don’t really need a CA tag to make my family proud of me..they wont love me less if things dont work out..
At the same time.., I wont be happy being careless..
I will try my best untill I wear out.
But despite of my trying, things don’t work out then I wont push my luck and cry in frustration.
I’ll write another chapter of my life.
I have detached from all.
I expect less.

But I do expect one thing- “Axe in my back.”
Working with probabilities is not always fun but it’s better than working with plans that don’t really work out.

Things happen and they dont..
They take time..&  patience runs out and blah!
But I just know, In the end I’ll have
EXPERIENCE!!!
Not loss.. Not failure..
Not negativity.. !!
Just another step into something different.

Life is not running after one thing. .  One love..  One time stuff.. One type routine. One typical look.

I would never want my life to be like a “one time watch boring movie.”

I would rather want it to be more of a mix match awsome stuff that can go on and on without boredom being a part of it.

Look at the world, there’s a hell lot out there…
Adventures,  life,  nature,  I wish to explore and to see more.
Hell!! I have more dreams than I can write about…
I would wanto go out into d world.. See more of it.. Snap it..Try extraordinary stuff.
How about skyscrapping? Surfing? Canoeing? Gyming? River rafting?Mountain climbing?
Adventures!!!!!!!
I want to do stuff that I’ve never done before.

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

I’ve heard many say, “become CA and then earn and then enjoy. “”
Seriously..??
If I dont become one.. How can they imply I wont earn and enjoy life? How can they predict my future?
They aren’t God.  They are human. So am I.

I will go out there into the world, and do my own mistakes,  learn from them and move on. I just got to  do it all on my own. I need to taste through my mouth,  not base my decisions on what my life tastes on their tongues. I have a right to be wrong, and to righten my wrongs. I have a right to make my mistakes and grow from them and I have an obligation to feel blest with what I have,  it’s so much more than many of us strive for. I am grateful.

Just recently, I’ve been listening to people and mentally punching them, know why?
One is because of the above.
And secondly :
When I was small ” these people would say -“your tooo skinny.”””
And now every time I meet them, “you’ve put on!””

Seriously??
I give them my polite replies,  nevertheless
My mind screams “seriously NUTCASE, do you think I wont know what’s happened to me? And if it’s my problem then why do you find joy in pasting it on my forehead with your filthy words? ”

Age old society habbit “stigmatising “””
Get over it people.

If you can’t be nice and talk positive and say good things.
Then just shut the hell up.
No one in the world,  likes their flaws being rubbed on their face. So cut the crap.
Be nice. Or be quiet.
Choose one.
No one needs your advice and opinion if all you can do is make others feel bad, and demotivated.
I know we are in the world of “dont give a damn attitude ”
But seriously it doesn’t work all ways.
We dont have that attitude with people we tag as our own. But the moment the “our own” do things like that, they ask for this.. “they just become people permanently not our own.””
Get that straight.

Now dear heart and brain, let’s vamos.
