I took the road less travelled so I could see my steps graving into the path,

I recited my words again and again so I could hear if they were healing or not,

Bearing the burden on these shoulders I still held my head high,

For at nights, I heard the silence of the dark and I heard the wolves cry,

I gathered all my strength and I gathered all my dreams,

Then I closed my eyes and went to sleep,

The journey I started is not ending soon and it’s not just for today,

I am going to walk until I have a reason to turn back is all I can say!!

Cheers!

Story of my life these days is simple and short.

It starts with a dilemma and no surprises, it ends with a dilemma

I had been so short on the fuel.

My life needs a kick, some sort of energy drink to bring me back in action.

And, it is really how i feel like.

The dilemma starts as soon as i wake up, or not to wake up.

I do something then i want to do something else and then something else. Like i cant just sit or do one thing at a time.

When i am at home, i feel like going to work and when i get to work, damn me!  I feel like i should go home.

And then at work i would start looking at watch or outside to figure out a way to make the time move faster.

But mehhhh, thats life,,

I know its just not only me living through this confusion.

Its one of those days when you just want to stay in bed,, just sleep all through the day.

But i think its ok to feel this way every once in a while.

We are all flesh and bones and its perfectly okay to slow down and not do things that you do every single day.

And for me,, am even too lazy to find a good finish to what i want to say and share. But since its a day am taking slow so am not gonna put anything fancy here but something very real.

So, just wanted to share this laziness.

Thanks for stopping by.

 

Cheers!

How often do you feel like dancing?

.

.

You wake up in the morning and suddenly a song strikes your mind and you cant stop playing that in your head.

.

.

 

No Diggity!!!

Yes, i know, its not very often that life gets easy on you and let you feel that rhythm but sometimes, it is only life that makes you hear that song.

You feel that everything is going all right and if not then it will be all right somehow.

.

.

Why cant we believe that every single day? Why does it has to be just one day or someday that gives us this sense of peace and a sense of calm?

.

.

Its not easy to understand the chemistry of this brain with life which sets our entire physics into a turmoil 😛 😀

Isn’t that funny and true at the same time?

I have met so many people and have seen so many things in this world that now i have started to understand some of these fundamentals.

.

.

So for one day or i would say for this moment i felt that happy beat in me and it even made my walk a happy walk, my talk a happy talk.

 

Loosen it up for a day, loosen up the stress, loosen up those conscious shoulders and just walk freely not just for the sake of doing it but for the sake of being alive.

Do what you love, do it more, do it more often.

Because it feeds your soul, it feeds your spirit. It gives you the power to keep going forward until you know you have reached where you wanted to be.

.

.

Today i found that beat somehow and i will hold onto it as long as i can.

May be its your turn next to start dancing!

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Cheers!!

 

The baggage of past is apparently the one that keeps you from moving on.

The more you think about it, more power you give to it.

Does it really have any worth?

.

.

.

.

Past, that’s where it was, it’s gone, it’s never going to happen again in the present then why does it have so much power over us?

It’s easy say than done, but re-wiring the brains is the solution.

Making yourself understand that what was in the past may only have power to be something, in your head and if it didn’t happen again then it never would.

Future isn’t going to let past take over it, unless you make it happen.

The more you hold on to it, the more it holds you.

Go past your PAST to your PRESENT and you will see the FUTURE.

 

 

The only thing to hold you should be the present, for it is THERE, right NOW, for YOU!!

Life is that one brilliant piece of art that we paint a bit by bit everyday.

Some of the colors in it are not our favorite and some are the most beautiful ones we have ever seen.

But, if given a chance, would you do it, paint it or draw it or do it any other way?

.

.

Is there anything in your life you would do differently than what it was or what it is?

There must had been countless times when you’d have though that the life was so unfair.

Everything fell apart and you could not keep it all together but it just passed. It changed a thing or may be a lot of things in you.

But for all those rough times, would you want to go back and do them differently to save you the pain, the loss at that time?

.

.

For where you are now, for how the painting looks like now when you look back, would you want to change things, re-arrange things?

.

.

It might not sound very convincing but whatever happened, happened for the best.

It took so many moments to paint the beautiful picture of your life.

Thinking of having done things differently would only blind you from seeing the beauty of what it is now and will just leave you in a bubble that has no existence.

Things turned out just the way they were meant to be,

You did the best and turned out to be a better you as now you would see!!

Embracing what you had gone through will help you cherish what you have and will make way for an even better tomorrow.

You never know how long you have until you take your last breath, then why cry or try changing the colors of the picture which you already painted so beautiful in the first place.

.

.

Keep the you in you alive,

for there is just One YOU!!

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

On this day, the world wants to celebrate the womanhood.

My question is, why just one day?

Why does our worth needs to be realized just once every year?

Being a woman, i know am strong, i know i can do anything to everything but yet i am restricted, am not allowed to do anything.

Not because i cant do it or i don’t want to, but, its not what the world, this society, my culture or my religion would allow me to do.

.

.

They like us to be weak, they like us to  be vulnerable so that they can feel powerful. So that they can always have somebody to point their finger to when they loose, when they are frustrated, when they are clueless.

That’s what they think our existence is for. To help them feel powerful, to help them feel motivated because they know we are giving enough to loose, just to let them win and let them have that self contentment.

.

.

But, for I, the women, that is where my power lies.

I know, if i can help you win and stand up then i can always stand aside and let you fall.

If i have the courage to loose and still smile then imagine what i can do for my own self with the same power that i vest out in the world.

.

.

Its just that the instincts given to me and how i am made that stops me from being selfish, that stops me from putting myself first.

I have it in my blood to give out, to help others win the battle and make this world a better place to live.

.

.

I dont demand any dollars as they are mere a piece of papers  to fulfill any of my dreams or my desires,

I dont foresee mercy from the world as this world runs because of ME,,

Its not the worship i seek like rest of the world demands,

Its just ME that i want to live and want to BE!!

Sometimes i feel that women live in the shadows. As its assumed that for everything they do, they should seek approval.

And god forbid, if they did something on their own then its so rebellious.

They cant sleep when they want, cant eat what they wish as they might not look good enough. They are judged for their clothes, for their drinks.

.

.

Why is there no equality?

Why does the house needs to be taken care by a woman? Why cant man and woman equally take care of the house?

If she is the lady of the house and should look after each and every bit then why cant he being man of the house equally take care of it?

The world, the society has divided us deep from the core that even though a man wants to help but they cant.

You know why? Because other men around him would judge him, would pass on their male chauvinistic judgments to appear more powerful and belittle them.

.

.

Its all about one little part of human body that can bring the change. And that part is your brains, you rewire it to think in a different way and everything will change.

Not even on this day the eve teasing, rape or molesting would stop then why celebrate it?

.

.

Celebrate it on the day when you know your wife, your daughter, your sister, your mother is treated well in the world and is not judged for she being herself.

That is when this day would mean something or will be worth celebrating!

Cheers,

Till now, we had been listening to the stories where we know that the butterfly came out of the cocoon.

How something not so beautiful and not at all useful turned into  something so colorful and pretty?

.

.

But nobody ever paid attention to the story of the cocoon. The story about the life that had been inside that shell for a long time, without knowing the outer world.

How the life would have been when it knew nothing of its existence, it knew nothing of its future?

Just inside those layers, was an essence of a creature breathing the slightest oxygen that could reach in.

When it started developing, there was no light inside but just the darkness.

Why would god choose such a place to nurture anything?

.

.

No animals or insects usually build their nests or homes like that, but why were these creatures given such a place to live, no doubt it was for quite a while but why not under the open skies, or by the river side where there was plenty of air, food and other beings…..

.

.

It could not even move an inch inside that shell initially, who would have known that the life not being able to crawl was destined for something big, something very beautiful.

.

Slowly and gradually it happened.

.

.

It started to crawl, move those tiny feet on the branches, look outside, breathe that fresh air but yet so vulnerable that it couldn’t protect itself much from the outer world.

.

.

The shell was the only protection, hiding inside it until the danger lasts was the only choice.

Sometimes it would be hours or days being inside the walls and during that, it could just stay into that darkness which was the only comfort.

.

.

A life still breathing and blooming in the darkness, how beautiful does that sound. Finding a comfort into something that the world is afraid of, how brilliant that must had been.

.

.

It got used to off its weaknesses and the dark shell and its comfort.

.

.

But one fine day the magic happened, the destiny revealed the power of patience and will.

.

.

The cocoon’s walls were breaking, the little life inside got scared, it got scared that something is going to eat it or kill it.

Who was outside, so powerful, that was breaking those walls that kept it safe from so long?

.

.

It asked god, why, why is this happening to me?

I had never hurt anyone, neither did i do anything then why is somebody taking away my shell from me, my only existence from me?

.

.

God, who is this? Please tell me, who wants to take away my darkness from me?

It cried and pleaded!

.

.

God replied, its Time! Its time you become you!

.

.

At first creature couldn’t understand and got lost into thinking, why did god say that?

.

.

Then slowly, creature realized, it is not somebody from OUTSIDE who is breaking the shell and letting the light in,

but,

its from INSIDE the shell!

The creature had out grown the shell and now it had to come out of it to breathe that air.

Not anyone from outside was breaking those walls but its own strength and patience paid it off.

.

.

Now, instead of crawling, it was able to walk. How could this happen, it was wondering?

.

.

Happy and yet scared of everything.

.

.

And not realizing its end of the branch, it started falling to the ground and its only then the wings got opened to its surprise.

.

.

The life that was once inside the darkness was now on its wings, flying, flying to new heights, all around those beautiful flowers and trees.

.

.

Why it took so long, why only me?

.

All these questions seemed unnecessary, as the beauty of the life was right there within those wings.

.

.

Those wings took time to grow, nourish and color themselves but when they appeared it was the beauty of life.

.

.

Exactly, that is how it is with us humans.

We do have those beautiful wings but they are not visible.

For some, they are in the cocoon, for some they have outgrown their shells and found those beautiful wings that have colors of love, care, kindness, patience etc.

.

.

 And above all everyone has their unique color which they spread in world.

Some people find their color very early in life which is the reason of their being and some take time to realize that unique color.

But eventually, if you are not able to see or find your unique color then the world will help you find or realize that color sooner or later.

.

.

Till then enjoy whatever phase you are in, whether its a cocoon or its a flying phase.

Its the Beauty

Cheers!
