The parched earth
Those pregnant, joyful clouds
Scented moist air
Whistling wind, and the sweet chill
The steaming cup
A book in hand
Rain, monsoon, and more rain….!
We often whine, we express our anguish and anger o’er the pain, loss and sufferings we endure. But, how often do we pause, ponder and thank for all the beautiful things we possess in life? Rarely or barely. Today, instead of looking at what’s not there in life, I choose to look at all that I have in my life. Most definitely not with pride, but pure humility… I wish to list down things that I am truly blessed with;
Thank you Almighty God, for all the beauty in my life. Indeed, am blessed. This note, would always serve as a reminder whenever I complain or throw a bout of anger saying nothing’s right in my life. A promise to stay calm, and not get flustered with the occasional storms in life. For I have learnt, life, in phases it unwraps, its secrets, moments of joy and sadness.
Also, my prayers goes out to all those who are affected by Sandy, Nilam. Stay safe and in good care…wherever you are!
Love & peace to all!!!!
Difficult times teach you a lot. Undoubtedly the hard way, but they do. This morning while sipping my cup of tea, I looked out from the balcony, relaxed and pondered if it did any good to me. It has changed me as a person for good I suppose,
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” – Marilyn Monroe
Something inside kindled,
prompted me to come back,
to a world of mysterious beauty,
and eclectic joy,
of connecting and bonding,
sharing and laughing,
in endless ways…
and greatest care!
I was going through a transition phase – both on a personal and professional front. Hence this unannounced break. There were “some” people who did not spare even this space to pull me down, affect me and hurt me, but I did not choose to stoop down to their levels. I chose silence instead. Cared less and remained calm and quiet. Rediscovered myself in the process and found my own happiness and zeal to live my life.
Professionally and personally I am very happy now. Thanks to all those who have been pillars of strength throughout.
Wishing you all a great festive season ahead!
P.S. (Thank you for your unconditional love, to all those emails and requests to come back. I will reply to each mail personally very soon)
Pain, hurt, tribulation, disbelief, self-pity, anger, bitterness, guilt, helplessness, fear. We all go through this upheaval of emotions during life’s journey. But, it’s not wise to hurt oneself in the process, not by anyone/anything at all. One should not succumb but set the mind free from the burden of such emotional turbulence. It helps us evolve; it makes us stronger.
Life is all about choices. True! When it’s a right one, the road ahead looks hopeful and with one wrong choice, the road ahead gets precarious. Who said life was easier anyway?
