A quote & a painting!
“You live in the time between moments,
you live in the pauses between breaths,
you live in those tears hanging over the edges,
you live in the unreasoned smiles,
you live – in the most secretive places of my being.”
Some people just don’t know how privileged they are with good health, supporting parents, financial help, and potential. It is indeed true – you value things when you don’t have them. Some people have talent; they don’t know how to work hard. Some people have no talent but they can work hard. Some people have both and they are just sitting and doing nothing.
They are waiting for the “right time”. That’s the funny thing about time it is always right once you know how to use it. Nothing comes easy, one always has to explore and hustle.
So you, who took time to read this, if you are okay, in good health, have a good amount of time and support – Work towards something big. Not everyone is privileged. If you are, be grateful.
You must be thinking why such strong, forcing message? Why do I care?
Well, I am one of those not so privileged people. I want every minute of my day to count, I am passionate about my work, I dream big, I just lack one thing – Good health. I thrive every day to just feel better, I pray to God that hopefully today I will be able to give my hundred percent. I struggle every minute with my health yet I try to work as much possible as my health allows me to. I have big dreams and I do work for them, even though when something big is holding me back every day. So, I value the time I have here in this world, and I do everything to make it meaningful and awesome.

“Ideal is what comes and what you make of it.”
When I think about my ideal day, my thoughts instantly takes a turn towards a non-planned day with few adventures and just enjoying the flow of the day. Yes, there are many things which I wish to do like book reading in a café surrounding colors and plants, hot cup of tea with a pen and notebook near a flowing stream with the music of running water, chirping of birds and whispers of the trees, or maybe walking down the street and doing window shopping, but clubbing them into one ideal day is not my cup of tea.
I guess most of the people have their “ideal” stuff figured out, I did too. But as life unfolded in front of me, I tilted towards more of enjoying what comes my way and grow and glow with it. I think that’s how you are more open to life. Sure I love when my plan works, but I don’t mind spontaneity either. I rather embrace it. I used to get upset a lot in my early 20s when things didn’t go as planned and it kept me cranky most of the time. I released the plan with the blow of my fallen eyelash and wished for a more free and wild life.
So, my ideal day is a blank page of my book waiting to be filled with new things, experiences, people and feelings with different moods throughout the day and peace in the heart when I lay on my bed at night.
…until next time
While going through the various posts on Instagram today I came across some brilliant writing and 90% of them was about love. The poems or thoughts may carry pain, heart break, or a cheating soul, they were still easy to ink on a paper. Spilling words about love, about the aesthetic it carries or the pain followed, its strangely beautiful to see that how a heart in love becomes poetic. The expression love holds is food to soul. It nourishes every cell in the body. Hatred and revenge doesn’t carry such power to inspire someone. It only destroys the within. Even the ‘fire’ which is supposedly a symbol attached to hell is now used freely to symbolise passion of love, flames of inspiration and success. Love coats the perception of life with a little bit of honey and cashews. Even if you have been hurt or dejected in love, it allows you to transform in ways you never knew can become a reality.
Love doesn’t have to be coming from the opposite sex. It is not something small, confined to only one person. It can be a love for nature, love for your parents, love for a pet or an animal or may be a love for oneself. It is every particle which creates the universe. It is the infinity which goes beyond time and space. Let it grow. Let it flow. It is beyond our definition.
Love is rhetoric.
Does saying positive things and writing down affirmations truly help?
I am always on a mood roller coaster. Sometimes I am excited and happy, other times I am just numb. I am a person who lives in the extremes. Someone suggested that I should write down or listen to positive affirmations every day and see how it all manifests in my life. The universe truly listen, they said. I have been doing that on and off, and sometimes when the mood is way off, it gets difficult to read the affirmations and believe in them. Because honestly the heaviness of the emotions mostly outweighs the positive outlook.
But slowly, affirmations have become a habit now. I try to read or write one every day and I don’t know if the universe is listening, I am doing it for a minute of positivity and balance.
I am one of those people who at the end of the day wants to do better the next day. I don’t give up, no matter what hardships come in life. I always want to move ahead and change my perspective into a positive one. And this never giving up attitude has always brought wonderful times in my life.
So, I don’t know what the universe is manifesting for me. I am manifesting things for myself and the daily affirmations are the window that brings the light of hope into my life.
The change that comes from pain is one of the most crucial moments of your life which shifts your life completely. It’s a force from the beyond. A calling that comes at the time when you are about to jump off the cliff to end the pain, but you look up and decide to back out and change the path. It’s a kind of elating enlightenment and the change from the pain becomes your biggest gain.
Share your moment of enlightenment 🙂
There comes a point in life where you are just tired.
Tired of the pain, your endless suffering. You are not in the search for happiness anymore. You just want some relief.
A day where you feel light. A moment where you are not thinking of how to stay strong. A span of time, which doesn’t ask you to fight.
What to do when you feel this heart wrenching tiredness? Any ideas?
