Eternal Fascination

Time stands still when I talk to you,

Why does it feel like everything’s the same?

When everything going on is insane!

I don’t want to change you,

I want you exactly the way you were,

There were times when I’d live my life through you,

Now all I want is for you to be happy.

Be the man I know you truly are,

Soar high, fly away if you must,

Don’t let anyone tell you something you’re not.

Life is so beautiful,

Live it to the maximum,

Feed your passion,

Ignite the fire in you,

Don’t live life under wraps,

Break free and surrender to life’s delights,

Surrender to the uncertainties,

Surprises are better than the known shocks.

Years have surpassed us,

We’re not who we were,

Yet, there is a bond that’s inseparable,

Is it really there? Or do I imagine it all?!

Feelings…crazy feelings!

There are times I feel alone in a crowd, there are times I feel alone while having a conversation with people, there are times I want to scream but all I do is keep quiet and stiffen a smile.

There are times I find solace all alone in a phase I call hibernation.

There are people whom I love who want me to be someone else, I can only be the person I am.

Change is the only constant in life but I refuse to change for other people’s convenience.

Sometimes I feel trapped, like a bird in a golden cage. Even with all this I feel a void in me, a hollow gap.

I am a firm believer in living in the present.

Life seems to be going on and I feel like I’m on the outside just looking in.

Feelings and thoughts that drive me crazy at times.

I am able to stay calm for others but when it comes to my inconveniences; negativity and self doubt envelopes around my heart and mind. I hang in there on a thin string stuck to my gut instinct.

I know there is more to life than what I am living now. I am surrounded by love but I feel like this isn’t letting me grow as a person. Claustrophobic care and love is shunting my growth.

I feel strange, I feel like I want to fly but my wings feel like they’ve been stuck to my sides.

I want people to understand me, let me breathe, let me live.

They say they can’t change but they constantly try to change me.

Don’t try to break me and then stick me up! Please try to understand where I am coming from, where I want to go and appreciate where I’m at.

After all this emotional turmoil I am still grateful for what I have and where I am at. Time and place for everything but the reasons seem blur at the moment.

For everyone who feels this way or any other emotional hurricane. Stay strong, we need to take this each day as it comes, one solution at a time.

Live and let live. Stay blessed.

Don’t live thinking ‘what If’- Think ‘what is’ happening right now!

All humans or most of us, get excited thinking of the unknown or the future, we concentrate more on the 'what's if's' than the 'what is' in life.

We don't realise that while we're procrastinating…worrying or day dreaming of what could be or what will be, we are losing out on the present which is life happening around us.

Realisation dawns upon us when we feel how time has flown by!
Still it doesn't mean one doesn't need to feel that you have wasted your life away.

No person has given us a rule book that has the correct definition of how to live your own life. As long as you're not hurting or harming anyone you are capable of choosing what you want to do with your own life!

I've come across people who feel they need to do things because they feel that they have time and they are not making the most of their lives.

Why do we feel guilty about living our lives the way we want to?

I agree there are many many people who don't have the option to do so because of some monetary or other situations.

BUT the "lucky" ones as admired and envied by the ones who aren't, need not feel guilty about living their lives on their own terms.

Life is all about being happy and cherishing every bit of life. No one knows what's to happen even a few minutes or hours from now.

I don't want to talk about sad things but we must acknowledge the fact that people are dropping dead like flies. There is NO age factor that is safe to predict one's life span!

People keep concentrating on the AGE factor BUT they don't realise that age and time are just numbers. We humans have just tried to make sense of this unknown entity around us. I don't think animals have a sense of age or time. They just live each day as it comes, and that's how one should be.

I try my best to do so… and I try to preach the same!

No one can be happy and have a LORD Rama alike smile plastered on their faces -all the time, but you can take inspiration from that and try to turn the frown upside and smile at your worries.
I always believe smaller issues in life are better than other problems coming our way!

Our sorrows make us realise the importance of happiness in our lives.

Anyhow, live life the way YOU want and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Believe what your gut tells you! The Mind and heart can play tricks BUT the gut isn't wrong atleast 98% of the time.

Seize the day and enjoy life as it comes. Live in the moment! Don't try to catch the waves of life… just enjoy the feel of them on you!

Crush me, crush me not…

Have you ever felt a certain feeling towards a person and when you see or hear of them you get butterflies in your stomach? And sometimes it not ONLY one person you feel it for! It's a crush not love, stop the judgements please!

I am sure all of you at some point in time have had a crush on someone. Having a crush does not mean it will be anything or everything. BUT you can also not say if it will be anything or it will just fizzle away.

Crush is also a feeling of attraction and the urge to get to know someone better. As they say, enjoy the journey to your destination.

Many a time crushes are one sided, and exception to the rule would be that your crush has a crush on you as well, even if it's NOT at the same time as you. Sometimes maybe years apart- I know that can be a little frustrating.

Its all about the right time and place. Well what can one do if things will happen ONLY at their own pace.

Tread carefully as you never know who you might have a crush on next, or some one somewhere is crushing on you as you read this!

In sickness and in health

Words fail to leave me when I think how important the word health is. It is of utmost importance to us all… It is and should be the most important aspect in our lives because it is what keeps us going, just like a well maintained vehicle. It is better to take care each day than suddenly trying to rectify the damage what we’ve done in years.Very few people realise this before it’s too late. Most people try to make a difference after a major shock to their system. Sometimes they are lucky but most often with neglect the shocks are unbearable and thus comes the expected conclusion.

Even small illnesses make us realise how lucky we are to have a healthy system otherwise. The enjoyment of food- taste, appearance, and smell! Oh the smell is the most important as it’s the thing that reaches us first before the food actually reaches our tables.

It’s not a big deal to try and stay fit-Physical and Mental fitness…All one needs to really take care are some basic things:

  • Drink plenty of water or non sugary fluids.
  • Exercise or activity of any form of one’s choice.
  • Good amount of sleep and preferably a set pattern.
  • Eat everything but at the correct time and burn it off as and when possible.
  • Try to be happy and try to accept the sadness and move on or do something to change the situation and make the best of it.
  • If on medication, take it on time and maintain a routine.
  • Look at yourself in the mirror and remind yourself – Life is beautiful and you thank everyone who makes it beautiful and happy for you. Gratitude helps BIG time.
  • See the bad but try to see the magnitude of the good things in comparison to the bad ones that happen to you. Balance it out and you will realise you have the best life you could ask for!
  • Spend as much time with family and friends as you can. People who love you will always make sure you are fit, fed and happy.
  • Last  but not the least, try to be regular with your doctor’s checkups if and when suggested because it’s better to be safe than sorry!

 

Let me end this by saying,

Here’s to people who are with you through thick and thin, in sickness and in health, in happiness and sadness…Coz it’s not only that you marry one person in your life, But it’s how you manage all your relationships. All relationships are marriages of two human beings from different angles, only difference is that there aren’t any legal papers or vows exchanged to make one realise their existence. These are special bonds made with our hearts and sealed with invisible vibes. So I deeply thank the people who are with me through everything in life and in return I promise to do the same because LIFE my friend and every relationship is always a two way street. Cheers!

 

My feet hurt, but my mind and heart tell me to keep moving! 

 


The journey of our life begins right when we’re in our mother’s womb. We don’t even realise where we are until much later in life, when we start putting two and two together. From the start, it’s just eat, poop, sleep- repeat. The routine is natural and we have our own signature Bell sounds which we calibrate according to our whims and fancies; this sound is supposed to be used as a call to alert our helpers to feed or change us, but we use it to our advantage and sometimes misuse it as well when we just want attention. 

When we grow up, we start making playlists out of them, and then they become our very own ‘Throw your tantrum’ album.

Anyhow, we all know these things are done for attention and why do we want attention; you may wonder?! Well let’s get to that in a minute. 
Human as we are, don’t want to be left alone, yet we want space and crave our private time. So until we realize that our own company is the best company at least for the 1/4 of our lives, we keep wanting attention.

Most people don’t need someone in their lives; they think they need them, but it’s just something society has made us believe. We crave someone because we want them and don’t want to feel lonely and alone. Even so, we want our space and want to live our lives our own way.

This is a classic- I want my cake, and I want to eat it too scenario. Well,making a cake may sound easy but it isn’t. And if you ruin the cake, you will either have to chuck it or eat it alone! However, yes, positively as life should be taken, in some cases, if done properly it can be attained  with some misses here and there. So the best case scenario being, you’ll end up with some gaps in your cake but you’ll get to eat it! 

Life happens when you are busy making plans! 

This makes so much sense… however much you plan something, what’s meant to happen will happen! 

So, life is short but lovely. Live it to the fullest. When the heart, mind and body have a battle, try to make peace and get them all to come to a certain compromise.

A constant battle of thoughts keeps us going, and life goes on…

The whole idea is to live life with happiness, and even if you feel you’re alone, enjoy your own company coz it doesn’t get better than that. Be grateful for the loved ones around you. Family comes first and friends who become family are next in line. 

Enjoy every bit of the experiences in life, take them as they come. Every mistake in life is something you learn from, make the most of every situation. Take the good from the bad. If something bad happens, try to be thankful that it wasn’t something very big. Nothing can be bad enough, everything can be taken care off with your own will-power and determination. 
So even when your body refuses to move again, take the help of your mind and heart to push you forward. 

Try and try until you succeed! 

 

The long and short of life!

Hey,

It’s been sometime I have written and I was just not able to write maybe because I didn’t want to feel or think anymore. I just wanted to live life as it came which I did and continuing to do so even now.

Life is a constant teacher, It gives us such hidden meanings out of the most random things. The other day I told a friend, ‘ Life is short but it can turn out to be very long if you’re unhappy!’- this is so true. I mean have you thought about this? It’s already February 8th today and the year 2016 went off like a breeze and now 2017 seems to be waltzing by as well. I am the grateful kind and I am very happy for what I have in life, but yes there are many things I would want to include in my life ( that story is for another post, some other lifetime maybe.wink wink ) If a person is not happy, they feel life is dragging and no fun at all and they come up with the line –I am bored with my life.

Why would you get bored? There are so many things that can keep one busy! Though I have realised that people who don’t like to read or watch stuff tend to get bored easily. There is so much information out there for us to grasp, even two lifetimes won’t be enough. Knowledge is non-stop and every other moment you realise you don’t know what is right and what is wrong!

The constant argument I have with my father is that there isn’t just one right and one wrong in life. There can be two rights too. It’s only a difference of opinion. It can’t be my way or the highway. My father is the one who always says one should never say ‘ I know!’ because that in itself shows you don’t want to learn more.

Now, for whoever believes in rebirth. Rebirth is a concept to relearn what we couldn’t in our previous lives, it’s like a repetitive class but without the previous knowledge. It’s a sick way of saying, come one get this right but you won’t remember what you did wrong the last time! Well however it is, IF and when you get the hang of this game called life, you progress to the next level and that takes a lot of practice my friend, so I have been told repeatedly, Practice makes perfect!

About life’s endless decisions, one has to make their own choices, everyone will give their advice and support but we come into this life alone, we’re surrounded by people but when we’re going through our share of troubles only we can help ourselves, and we go alone leaving behind the ones who grieve losing us. ( If we are lucky!)

My constant Mantra in life among some other is to ‘Be happy’ however else we feel. We should be happy 85 % of our lives, 15 percent can be given to sadness but we shouldn’t dwell upon it too much. Feel sad but then move on, that is what life is, teaching us to pick up the pieces and charge ahead. Take life by it’s horns and ride it badass!
