There are millions of people living on this planet some successful,
some even more and some not at all,
Some aspiring to be something, some losing hope,
All of them living their own stories
When compiled we all become a part of the story of this universe
The more you contribute the bigger part you become of that story
Some get chapters to their names
while for some just a couple of lines
But does that really matter?
There are stories of hundred pages
But there’s always that one line that you can’t stop yourself from highlighting
And makes you feel like a part of it
I wanna be that part in the story of this universe
It is not necessary that everybody likes the same part of a story
I’d wanna be a part that
I will highlight,
copy a million times in my diary
And for that,
It is certain that I will experience
But in the end It’
ll could be a Happy Ending (Can not be sure of that, can we?)
But in the end, it’ ll all be well
-Not all bestsellers have happy endings
Failure is a Motivation in life
it does not pamper you like other people
but it tests you,
hard enough to make you step out of your comfort zone
But failure is a motivation only when you don’t stop after that failure, rather you keep going
So, if life is a mirror
Failure is a broken mirror
The only thing it is useful for is to take a lesson and be more prudent next time
And don’t dwell on it or keep it there for too long
You might step on it and hurt yourself and
bleeding with guilt and regret after a failure
doesn’t help in healing
So the broken mirror, It is just there to teach you a lesson you must learn
After which you must clean it up and focus on making a new mirror with old lessons!
It makes the success taste so much better!!
-at times there’s nothing like a mosaic painting
Who are you?
I am Me
And what’s so special about it?
Everything! Because unlike everyone I don’t try to be someone I am not,
Unlike everyone I am not scared of being myself, even if that means being extremely ordinary, boring, simple, ……….
Unlike everyone I don’t say stuff I don’t mean.
I don’t do things which I do not find agreeable
I am not perfect, I am work-in-progress
I need to learn more, but will there ever be an end to the thirst?
God forbid if that thirst dies what will we live for?
Thus, even in days when I think I am lagging behind, I remind myself
That I have all the time in the world
I don’t mind working slowly and taking breaks
Sleeping before the finishing line wouldn’t make a lot of difference either
It’s no Race
Even if it is, the finishing line is invisible
There are days I work hard to accomplish goals
There are days I spend doing nothing progressive
There are days I feel I am lagging but I don’t let this take over me
There are days the metaphorical speeches scare me
because I don’t fit in the list
I am neither a wave nor an ocean
I am neither a lion nor a fox
But who said I had to be like them?
Those metaphorical creatures or other accomplished men of this world
I said it before, I am me
And that’s good enough for me to be motivated again
There are days I fail at doing anything that I just talked above
but that doesn’t stop me from picking right from where I stopped the last time
Because I am everything someone else wants to be
Because I am different because different is me
So if you’re you, be delighted for it, because that’s rare
Not all stones can get hit by waves and still keep their shape in the river!
It is alright to have beliefs different from that of others, it is normal to like or love certain things but haven’t we chosen the path of hatred to show our love?
Haven’t we chosen the path of offending and disrespecting other people’s choices to show our love to what we love?
Women trying to show their support for the feminist movement and making the trolling of men a part of the movement
Millennials mocking the old school approach to supporting their trends
People supporting one religion by offending other religions to show their loyalty towards theirs
People becoming chauvinist for showing patriotism
and a lot more
YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO LOVE ANYTHING
AND IT NEED NOT COME WITH HATRED FOR OTHER THINGS
Loving something does not put you on a war with all the other things in the world
You could love yourself without hating others
This isn’t a war against anyone
this is about preferences and choices, you could enjoy your freedom without stopping others enjoying theirs
you could support women and feminism without making it against the men
where you could choose white without belittling the tan and dark skin
where you could love the contemporaries without hating the classics
where you could love trendy clothes without mocking people who are comfortable with their not so trendy clothes
you can live in peace without disturbing other’s peace
where you could support one person’s ideologies without criticising the rest
where you could love yourself without hating others
Also, not everyone is like that!
some people like what they like and do not hate other things
There are women supporting feminism and they don’t hate all men
There are people who prefer classics but do not detest the contemporaries
There are people who like football and do not hate cricket
and this is as simple as that
Don’t complicate it
and unless somebody tells you about their hatred do not assume they hate all the other things
-I love tea and coffee!
I love Captain America and Iron man!
I LOVE YOU and MYSELF!
A boat is meant to sail
anchors don’t keep her happy,
they do keep her safe, but then
there is always a time when they need to let go of her
it hurts, but you know what it is like watching someone you love happy?
That right there is happiness
and you know what happens if the anchors are never let gone
and she never sails?
she will rust in a corner and that my friend is not the meaning of keeping her safe!
Maybe you think she is not ready but is it really her not ready for a sail
or is it you not ready to let her go?
She has sailed this far and found her way to you, she will find her way again
You just need to let go of her
Because the truth is she must sail (with or without your consent!)
Life gives us the chances,
you will find new boats ,
and when they come to you, embrace them
but don’t compare them to her
because they are not her,
they don’t need to be her
She can always be your favourite
but accept other boats as well
because you never know what time has for you
and you never know, if she might come to you again
and this extra moment which you might get without any expectations of having it,
will be special, you will want it!
But you see you will not need it!
So let the boat sail
and find its way through the waves
It will make its destiny like every other boat out there
and that journey what she makes in the waves of freedom
will always remind her of your love and care
-Only know you love her when you let her go!
There will always be a time when things aren’t right
People don’t count on you
They think your time is over
or Maybe it’s not your thing
Amidst all this,
People stop expecting from you
People also call it the doom
But It should rather be called the NO BURDEN PHASE
Because people have no expectations from you
there’s no performance pressure
You can silently work and be the underdog
while others try to get rid of the burden of expectations (that’s on them now).
It’s your time to work harder and laze around
Think more, brainstorm and prepare yourself
to give your best shot at your opportunity, conquer it
and come again under people’s expectations
yet again to become a part of their scrutiny list
to step in the burden phase again
So somebody else could get a chance to be in the NO BURDEN PHASE.
The expectations seem very attractive at the start when it gets you all the attention
But with time it gets heavier, so
Do not let people’s expectations stop you
They are like fake friends, they come and go with good times
Don’t let them bother you
-It’s just a
To the dear lady who is always portrayed to be the one sitting in front of a TV set and being jobless
I am sorry,
that people don’t respect what you do
that your kids ask you the question of what have you done?
That you aren’t their hero and they constantly compare you to their father
They fail to understand your resilience and call you weak
That it took years for people to realise that you are the house maker
That the only place they talk about you is tv series where they show you as a person whose only stress is the perfect pie you cook and the colour of the tablecloth
That even after knowing the kind of hard work you do, you are always portrayed as a lady with pitch-perfect makeup
let me tell you, that you are way more than what they show you to be
Don’t compare yourself to the working women who play your roles on tv, you don’t need to worry about sheets, laundry and your looks
There are always exceptions, aren’t there?
The ones who know your importance
The ones who treat you well
The ones who don’t expect you to be a superhuman
and the ones who accept you as who you are
And this women’s day Let’s not just talk about the women but also the men who understand women in the time of need
Who celebrate Women’s Day every day
– A party is nothing without the special ones
Played a video game before?
Former levels being Easy to engage you and the latter ones being tough,
but you are still stuck to it because we love challenges
So is life
it will get burdensome
but you will clear these levels
maybe not right now, after the break but that’s happening for sure
So do not think of quitting it
this game of life cannot be uninstalled
But can be triumphed
Do we ever look at comedy movies and feel like being a part of it?
But we do wish to be a part of action and
drama movies because
we want to be a hero
we want to fight and conquer our problems
Life gives you problems to hero them
-You are the avenger of your life
How easily have we ignored our today
to make our tomorrow special and rewarding,
when we know that today is what builds our tomorrow and the day after
today the mistakes you make, the opportunities you grab
are the one’s which will make or break you!
How easily have we tricked ourselves to believe that tomorrow is more important that Today
When we know unlike today, tomorrow is not even promised
How easily have we let our today slip out of our hands
without realising they are our tomorrows from the past!
How easily have we fooled ourselves into believing that sacrificing today
will get us our tomorrow which we always dreamt of
when we know that today is all we have and tomorrow will never come!
How easily are we sowing the seeds of unhappiness today and hoping that
tomorrow will turn them into an orchard of Happiness!
-How easily have we wasted all our lives in this game of Today or Tomorrow
