“What’s going on in your mind?”
“I don’t know. I wish I could express it clearly. Clearly, I am bad at it.”
“At least try.”
“I want that intensity. I want that kind of book which I end up reading; those ones which make us laugh and cry with them. Is it that bad that I want someone who would love me with that passion? One who would not give up on me? Who would wait for me, no matter how many years pass by?”
“That’s just a fairy tale. It doesn’t happen in real life. It’s better to be realists then wait for the inevitable heartbreak because of the one that got away. We are humans, we move on. We need somebody and that’s why it is important to not grieve for them. Smile for the happy memories and let the bad ones teach you a lesson.”
“But what if I want to be irrealistic? It would be wrong if I was only expecting from the other and not ready to give all that. I am. I am ready. I would rather have a love where I would give my all to him.
In fact, even you would! You would do anything for that person. You try to become a better person for them; not because they asked but because you want to be the best version of yourself for them. And the thought of losing them makes your heart crawl out and you can’t even imagine the pain of losing them. You would do almost anything to be with them; cross all the borders for them just for those few hours. ”
“Yeah, but in this world, how can you be sure whether the person is the one?”
“Your soul will answer that. Listen to it very carefully.”

Did you remove few minutes from your busy schedule to see the moon? In this busy busy world where we are always in rush to do something, to be somewhere, have you removed some time from your day to just be?
Did you look at the trees? Did you just stand in one place and let the winds calm you down?
Did you give time to nature? Because if you have, you will understand how peaceful it is!
Just looking at the moon playing with the clouds and stars shining will give a rush of calmness that you were needing from weeks.
Why does everyone keep on recommending to go to a countryside for vacations? Why do you need a break every now and then?
The answer is so simple. All you need is self care. While you buy expensive things for your skin care, why don’t you take care of your soul?
Go ahead, get up, go down. Even if it’s just for a walk. The world will seem a little better.
At times it’s better to step out of the situations and look through it like a spectator in the crowd.
Sometimes it’s better to be at the shore than be in the depth of ocean.
To to admire the heat from the fire than getting burnt.
But is it living?
Everything is messy. Nothing works. Nothing clicks. Just an awful start.
It’s funny how we all talked about self love and encourage it but at the end of the day, it’s the people you have interacted with makes an impact.
Even if you don’t know the person, they will still have an impact on how your day passes. But in the same way, you will create the impact on someone’s else’s life.
So, be kind. World has a little less of it already.
Tricky thing is this, addictive even. I don’t want to get over it. The more I try to see, the more it speaks, enthralls me into this path of just being there. No judgement and just acceptance.
Its quite interesting to observe and see people react, believe and trust. While observation is intoxicating, what shall I see when the tables are turned?
Would the perception of myself shatter or would it be revolutionising?
We are so quick to notice, bond and judge people but dislike when it’s we are put to the same process.
We each have a good/bad side, what we choose to be is based on our interactions. Don’t assume the person you dislike, is really not a good person
There are instances where you make silly mistakes and be embarrassed about it.
May be it’s about those small instances which makes you more better, wiser.
It’s been three days already since the new year has begun and it hasn’t changed drastically. Still sleeping late, not exercising and eating junk food as always. Yet it still brings hope in me, to be better than I was before, to challenge myself.
It’s this moment which calms my beating, nervous heart *insert a gif of Shifu’s (Kung fu panda) inner peace *
Something tells me that it’s going to be okay!
It’s okay if you don’t like your work at times and feel not satisfied. It’s okay if you strive for perfection and take a whole day for it.
Make it count.
You will meet different people and not everyone will like you. I think at the end of the day, its better to feel you have done something you are proud of rather than comprising on what you feel
