In your escapes,
In your wanderings,
You’ll find a part of yourself..
which wasn’t really lost.
You just never knew you had one.
A part which chose to show itself..
only in the rarest of occasion.
That part, of a Free bird..
waiting to flap it’s wings,
And fly away from this world of torments.

Jiss ghar me hoti rehi be-izzati usski,
na jane kyu phir bhi vo vahi rahi.
Kya hoga iss chidiya ka me sochu,
jo pankh lagne ke pehle hi
apne pinjre se hakaal di gai.
Haan vohi chidiya jo parai hui nahi thi,
par parai kar di gai.
Socha bohut iss baar ussne bhi,
key, kar le samjhauta roshni se,
ke tuut jae vo kahi..saweree se.
Lekin insaan thi vo bhi fitraat se,
samjhauta kar liya ussne phir,
par iss baar
khud se nahi…

Ever happened to notice a small child playing? Trying to walk from a crawl? Smiling their magical, healing smile? I felt innocence through her.
I felt pure peace and joy, stopped wondering. Blank, seconds and seconds of contemplation. I could sink in her eyes, her looks, her gestures.
The Universe is in your bones and The Stars in your soul; it’s never really the end. Feel this ‘Peace‘ through this innocent soul. You’ll be drawn to your bubbling, peaceful days. ❤👑

“You never talk about your regrets. Don’t you have any?” he questioned having a confusing look.
“I guess, but I don’t like to call them regrets. I refer them as ‘Wonderings‘.” she answered his confused mind.
“Wonderings?” asked with a bewildered look on his face.
“Because I always wonder what would have happened if things had played out differently. But to name my past decisions ‘mistakes’ or ‘regrets’ seems foolish.
If I choose something, it might have been the right choice at that time. We never purposely make mistakes, we only call them in hindsight.” she answered him with a smile.

I know most of us hate Monday cause we gotto start a whole new week with the same old things. I know it sucks, but then…may be someone might have had their first kiss today. Someone might have found out that are officially ‘Cancer Free’ today. Someone might have finally finished their debut novel today. Someone might be living one of their best moment today. Lots and lots of interesting things might be happening today! Lets smile for them. It costs nothing, infact adds on your beauty. ❤
It’s gonna be a beautiful day to you too. 💝

We all have hurt someone tremendously, whether by intension or accident.
We all love someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident.
It is an intrinsic trait and a deep responsibility, to be an organ or a blade.
But learning to forgive yourselves and others because we haven’t chosen it wisely is what makes us most human. We make horrible mistakes. That’s how we learn. We break love. That’s how we learn. And, it is inevitable.
I know you are scared right now
may be you miss…
May be your heart hurts a little…
or a lot.
Or may be you are not quite sure
of who you are or
what you want.
That feeling..you want back.
The one where it doesn’t seem like…
the whole world is against you.
This feeling. This is still here.
It never really left ..
And one day you’ll realise
that the only person…
who can find it again is ‘YOU’.

Somewhere, I am still that seven year old,
holding a glow stick,
like a star twinkling,
there above shinning.
Somewhere bright lights
are good, somewhere
I’m thankful for being blessed
for not hurting myself from
lost love or capital letters.
Somewhere I am still a baby
who thinks only feelings, she can’t comprehend,
who cries wothout any language to compensate.
Somewhere, I screm
everytime something hurts
somewhere, things still hurts.
Somewhere I am still a seven year old, with a laugh like a baby when sees ‘maa’
Walking along the pavement sideways,
Growing up, not wanting to.
I don’t want to.
Somewhere, I will always be that seven year old…
How often do you stand in front of the mirror criticising yourself? Saying you are ugly or aren’t good with studies?
How often did bad days force you to say you are worthless?
How often did you badly wished to hug someone tight but couldn’t?
Here a thing to realise now. If you can’t find anyone when you badly need them…stand for yourself. Nurture yourself. Hug yourself.
I want you to imagine a “10 year old you” version sitting right opposite to you.
Now I want you to tell this little kid that s/he is absolutely nothing, embarrassing, worthless, useless.
Are you doing it? Can you say such things? Can’t right?
Now, realise that this is exactly what you do to yourself. What do you really want to say this kid? That the are worth everything, right? That s/he is incredible and they should never let others tell them anything otherwise.
Now say this new stuff to yourself.
Now, you are the adult of your life and if you’re not comforting this child within you, then that is very sad indeed.
Replace the bad with good. Believe it.
Decide not to feel worthless anymore.
Hug yourself. It is real easy. All you got to do is…take your right hand and put it on your left shoulder and then your left hand from below your right hand to your right side. Hold yourself tight and hug yourself! Rest your head on your upper hand and smile. I bet a million you’ll feel peace within.
Yes, this is how we express ourselves.
We express ourselves, the pain inside us, those unforgiving feelings…
by vigorously writing them down with ink onto paper that can only carry memories forever.
It is by writing our life events.
It is by writing lines with more meaning than a reader would ever feel.
Yes, sometimes writing down things brings more tears in our eyes than before.
The more pain goes into each word,
the more pain is sucked out of us.
We choose to express ourselves by writing our good notes and dark nights.
But we choose to do this because this is the only medication,
that can heal our pain and treasure memories.
Which in turn works better than any doctor’s prescription.
Goes unread many of our words because the crazy things we write doesn’t really happen?
There are around 7billion people across the globe and we believe that someone does exactly what we do, how we feel.
Certain it is that someone else has just stood in the shower as the boiling water ran down their body.
Cried about life because they don’t know what to do.
Yes, we use words to figure these feelings out when our mind starts battling with heart.
This is how we express us.
So here’s something that has been on my mind lately…something we all try to forget, something natural.
Being hurt and ungrateful! Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. They can love you in a way you have never been loved. There is an extraordinary love, more love that we have never probably seen out here in this wide and wild universe.
But what when things go upside down? Heartbreaks? Hate all around?
Probably, the reason why people these days try to be ‘Over him/Over her’. One thing straight in your mind, if you do not feel greatful right now, that’s okay! You don’t have to convince yourself to be ‘Over it’. You are allowed to heal at your own pace and take your own time.
There might be a lot of chaos surrounding you and might be hard to see straight at things. If you aren’t feeling that, It’s Okay! That isn’t a crime! Donot atleast feel bad!
The acknowledgement in you is what you, or rather everyone needs to just be themselves.
By admitting this out loud, You embrace control over your feeling. No one can play with your feelings but you!
Untill you don’t stop from forcing yourself rather having a firm control, the boss is gonna be someone else.
This is life! People might screw you over. You might fight with the person you never thought you would. You might go through things that might be changing you. You will embrace yourself.
But, may be one day! You’ll just sit back, find your own moment, all alone…no one else but only you, and you will realize. Realize that stupid craps happen to people who can handle it. May be, that will form You, teach You, make You. And that then no one can want to change you, may be not even yourself.
Fair enough, right? So back up, Darling and live the life you’ll remember. ❤
You got all the powers in your hands.
You know what’s the problem with people? We are weird! Seriously! We all want to experience a big magic to solve all our problems; but the irony is that, that we refuse to believe in magic.
Ask yourself, are you LIVING or JUST EXISTING?
Give a meaning to your life! Help everyone. Learn to say Yes.
Do not forget we have a warm bed and get cooked meal at home.
I know few people might not be happy at this moment with their life. So do I always wonder when will I get everything I want, will accomplish all my bucket list goals, have the money factor…etc, etc! But then, on my journey I have met people, have even read about many people who have all of it but non of happiness.
If my bank balance would out weight my sense of purposes, then may be my only sense of purpose might be to achieve greater bank balance. I would somewhere be struggling to find happiness.
Let instead, Live the moment! Be Thankful. Give more than we receive. Future…future is going to happen. We all are gonna be what we wanna be one day, someday! But, we are also gonna leave this place someday, concentrate on living. Do not escape reality. BE REAL. Make sense to your life.
LIFE is a journey; ain’t a destination.
Don’t stop or get bothered by what people will think about you. They are on their own journey too, Enjoy Yours!
Do not compare your “Behind the scenes” life with other’s “Highlight moments.”
What is in your Head & Heart shines brighter than what’s on your Neck or Wrist!
LOVE, GIVE & BE THANKFUL. ❤
When we lose ourselves because of negative emotions…jealousy, anger, hatred or whatsoever, there’s a lot of guilt that settles our way. Just get one thing in that you did your best at that very moment or you might have ended up doing something completely differently.
Remember what happened, learn from that and keep it as an experience to deal with if that happens again. Be gentle with yourself..with others! Be Thankful for every damn thing. Be and try to forgive yourself the hardest you can! Everything happens for a reason. Believe it religiously.
“Nothing leads to nothing, but;
Something leads to something.”
I agree people donot support ‘mediocrity’, you might be remembered as an ‘average’ person. But you will never be forgotten as the one who tried the hardest!
We have got to take ‘good’ with the ‘bad’, ‘smile’ with the ‘sad’.
Love everything and anything you get. Be thankful for every single minute. Learn from your mistakes rather than regretting. Be thankful everyday that you are blessed to wake up this morning. The only time you should look down on others is when you are helping to lift them up.
I love being nice…helping people! I mean…yes..what’s wrong with that? Honestly, it takes around 20 seconds out of my entire day to compliment someone. I love it when they look and act in that surprising way and are like “ME?” and i am just like “YES YOU!” God! It’s soo cute!
How can people be mean? Being nice is soo much fun!
I once read a paragraph: ↓
“Cinderella walked on broken glasses, Sleeping Beauty let her whole life time pass, Belle fell in love with the hideous beast, Jasmine married a comman theif, Areil walked on land for love and life, Snow White barely escaped the knife.”
It was all about blood, sweat, tears…because love means facing your Biggest Fear! These lines got such a deep meaning!
When we are happy…we do not just glow. Instead, we will be unknowingly or may be knowingly radiating the power of a million sun rays! Having a soft heart in this world is courage; not weakness. Altogether sharing our happiness our hearts gets lifted above heaven! Out of all those dark holes there are bright beautiful surprises waiting for YOU.
Is it soo hard to fall in Love?
Yeah, months and years before I felt like I wasn’t mature enough for it. C’mon, Love is extraordinary! But something triggers me in. That might be such a beautiful feeling to be in love & to be loved!
But how much more is this wait?
How will I come to know about this?
What if I would already be talking and may be knowing that person and have no idea about love?
May be love is not what i think…
May be love is in some other place probably sleeping…
May be love is in some different time zone…
May be love is not ready for me…
May be I am not ready for love…
May be love is younger than me…
May be love stays, may be love can’t…
May be love shouldn’t!
May be love is teaching how to have patience to get the best…
May be love arrives when it is supposed to.
The question is, how much exactly one wait for this “may be” kinda love?
People come and go. Sometimes you can’t expect people to stay by your side and guide you in your life. There is only ME who can help ME.
Loving myself in all the way possible, might make the wait less to let Love fall into onto me.
May be I’ll get my answer of my “May be’s” that time when my inner self will feel something more than just lust.
One thing for sure, love is going to happen at the Right Time. Having patience might be hard but Worth!
We sometimes think who exactly we are? Where exactly we stand? Why are we here? And a chaos starts within.
I am incredibly greatful for everything that I have learned and where I am today. But along the way…it has also been hard work, work of tackling our own emotions. We learned. We opened our heart to many new people, new concepts, new experiences.
We realized that there is a magic in the zone just outside the comfort zone. We learned to be helpful even when we didnt want to be. That’s how a human heart should be, shouldn’t it? Knowing we are always safe & supported allows us to go wherever we want to. Allow yourself to see the truth and let go things that isn’t you. Learn to trust. Recognize that voice inside you. I have learned that feeling the hardest stuff is the definition of bravery and coming out of it is a reward to yourself.
Sometimes when we are in a dark place, we feel like we are buried and predict it as the end. But actually, we might have been planted!
Everything in life gives us a chance to learn and be a better person. So don’t allow it to discourage you, instead use it to make you wiser.
And after all these openheartedness, hard work, vulnerable streching way my comfort zone – What exactly have i found?
Well, I guess…what i have found inside myself is ME. Sometimes conflicted, often awkward…far from Perfect.
But above all that, A Quite Happy Me ❤
The Original Me. Who wants to believe that one day things are going to turn out exactly the way I planned. 🙂
Always ask yourself:
What can I learn from this?
What is life trying to teach me?
And then watch yourself rising from the ground just like a skyscraper.
When we said Hello!
When I saw your face Again.
When I decided not to Care.
When I made an excise to Leave.
When my shattered heart Remembers.
When I know it’s time to recognize it’s Over.
When I know your heart is now meant for Another.
