Privileged

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.

How does an ideal day in your life look like? – A Journal Entry

“Ideal is what comes and what you make of it.”

Dear Diary,
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

My artful depiction of corona & quarantine

We are only SAFE under our OWN ROOF!
I was going through water color paintings, to try my hand on, and suddenly my eyes dropped on this one. It caught my attention as it instantly gave me a thought of ‘gratefulness’ that I am at home and safe.

As a writer think it’s my duty to make you aware of the current situation and hope my words bring a difference (maybe only a slight one) during these circumstances. Looking at this umbrella and the colors beneath is your safety and the safety of your loved ones. Right now, when the world is under a huge cloud of disease, death and despair, you can bring the rainbow of hope, healing and happiness by doing your part.

Stay home, learn everything about the virus (as much as possible), and make people aware of it who doesn’t have access to all the information, humbly yet firmly ask the people who are going out for no reason to follow the protocols. Help the people around who have scarce resources with bit of money or food or any kind of supply. Help the stray animals by putting some food outside your home. Don’t abandon your pets. Do not over shop, take only what is necessary and can last up to few weeks. Keep good personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently with soap (do not waste water while doing it), keep using the sanitizer. Clean your house properly. And do what keeps you healthy and happy at home.

It’s the individual in you that needs to wake up. It is a war of every single person. It is a war to save the humans and humanity. Living under a lockdown can be stressful, but every rain has a rainbow hidden inside, it will smile on you with a little sunshine. Make your lockdown count. Live all the moments with utter joy with your family. Reconnect, revitalize and revive everything. It is YOU and ONLY YOU, who can change the course of this pandemic. Let’s stay apart to fight together.

P.S: Do not panic. Stop the spread of rumors. And keep smiling.

Happy reading!

Wait!

It rang,
it finally rang after days of waiting.
The wait ended and the weight lifted.
Every minute was longer than infinity,
but now
the excitement, the anxiousness was inexpressible,
a smile adorned her eyes and face.

She could sense and feel a new world of joy waiting for her on the door,
she ran and opened the door,
the books she ordered were finally here!

Depression – An invisible rope

I am choking on an invisible rope around my neck.
I know it’s hurting me, but I don’t how to remove it cause I can’t see it.

Depression and anxiety are these invisible ropes. You know you are suffocating, but you don’t know what’s suffocating you. You can’t find the reason behind it and hence, you are unable to remove it.

Some people don’t understand what’s wrong because from outside it’s all fine, everything is merry and satisfactory. Even if you try to explain them, they can’t see any valid reason, and even you can’t seem to see any valid reason sometimes, but it is there and the only person who knows something is wrong, someone who feels the presence of that invisible rope is the one choking!

So,
How to remove this rope?
How to stop yourself from choking?
Well, maybe, begin with not finding the rope thats choking you. Instead look for the strength that’s helping you breathe and stay alive. And from there, start looking for lively things, people who comfort you and don’t judge you, be in the midst of art, smile often without any reason and do things you love on a daily basis and when you get tired, immediately stop and rest for a while and then start again. Slowly and steadily that rope will loosen and your lungs will breathe a new life.

“Hope, persistence, faith and trying endlessly is the only way out. And I pray for all those who are choking, that you stay strong and don’t give up.”

I don’t know if I made sense or not, but I hope I helped loosen your rope a bit.

Keep Smiling! You are not alone.
