Walk away…

tumblr_nlltlwLEUh1s2zu6qo1_1280

When you are not being treated well; Walk away

When your respect is being tampered on; Walk away

It may hurt for a while,

But, short term pain is better than life time misery

Knowing when to walk away is: Wisdom

 Being able to do it is: Courage

And doing it with dignity: is a BLISS

The road maybe unknown or rocky ahead

But, you can count on your steady footsteps

You may miss the security of familiarity

But, when walking away is a Bliss

Having faith in yourself is the first step when walking away!

Mind your wings

 

When failures inspire you..

The first time I failed, I was disappointed

The next time, it was heart-wrenching

When it happened again, I lost faith in  everything….

But, it’s upto us, to get back on our feet.

I am up and more alive than ever!!

Failures… I don’t know them.

What happened was a lesson and it kick started my transition.

Today I’m careful, but not scared

I give my best and then leave it in the hands of that omnipotent power

The past failures have made me more judicious and compassionate

Some may still doubt me, but I’ve never been more clear.

Neither am I reckless, nor am I a prude.

Finally, I see the importance of balance in life.. 🙂

When doubt knocks!!

Motivation

When doubt knocks, close the doors and the windows

Turn on all the lights that you can focus on your goal

Or, switch off the lights and get into the bed for a good night’s’ sleep! 🙂

If, doubt is still knocking, then get off the bed, take a shower

And take a walk down your memory lane, 

Remember why this goal/thing is important to you

Remember all the hard work , all the battles 

Remember the times you tried diverting, but came back to this road. 

And just for a minute, close your eyes

Feel the joy-contentment of having achieved your goal

Was this worth the trial and the tribulations?

Do not give up because of the delays

Have faith, trust the seed you sowed, nurture it a little more

And the fruits of your labour are just outside your door!!

And Finally, thank doubt for helping you reasses your goal and path.

Sometimes doubt can be a blessing in disguise

As long as it stays just that- a doubt

And helps you strengthen your faith a little more!!

I fall in love with you everyday!

Hello everyone!!

Training as a professional in Yoga has been mind-blowing (in a good way). First of all, Yoga is so much more than exercise or a mode of toning up. Secondly, yoga is much more than the aesthetics, as social media is being flooded with fancy – glamorous photos. Finally, yoga is not limited to exercise or breathing. So what is yoga..?

Yoga is holistic. Yoga is a lifestyle. Yoga is a choice to live in awareness. It is a connection between you and your energy. Yoga is the modal which makes you fall in love with your body! Finally, it becomes a medium through which you can express yourself.

There are days when I feel battered emotionally, those are the days I need Yoga more. The days I miss my daily dose of exercise, I want to get back to my mat more. The experience is exhilarating. I fall in love with Yoga again and again and again. And as I teach a certain group of people, I just want them to feel a similar exhilaration and become healthy inside-out. Teaching has been phenomenal, I feel a certain stillness and that is reflected in the classes. Finally, I have a passion that gets me out of the bed on the coldest days or the sleepless nights, as I know everything gets better when I am on my mat!! 🙂 🙂

Breaking the chains of Perfection

31525_20120830_220701_Happiness_quotes

I’ve tried being perfect for too long

It’s fulfilling; but it’s exhausting for the body and soul

The approval and affection is an addiction

BUT. But the spirit feels chained and gnawed!

And when the spirit breaks the chains of Perfection

The flaws begin to surface, they appear monstrous

BUT. But something in me felt free…

Free to be judged, accepted, loved or abhorred.

Free to be me. The unabridged-imperfect me.

Making mistakes is better than being imprisoned by perfection!

You cannot expand a perfect person

But, the flawed person has so much to learn, improve and explore!

AND, once you learn to love and live with the flawed you

You will be surprised that you still have the affection 🙂

Sometimes I almost believe in you Destiny

images

I planned, I plotted, I burnt the midnight oil

There was a goal and I put all in

I worked hard, cross checked everything

The D-day was here 

And nothing went the way I planned

It was supposed to be perfect

But, my best laid plan had gone awry

People consoled me by telling me it was destiny’s plan

It got me wondering 

When we do our best and still stray away from our goal

Why so much planning, why the hard work

And a small voice whispers

“The best is yet to come; The hard work will pay off,

The success will be beyond your imagination

You’ve given your all and let the me give you better

Have faith, Believe and keep working”

Love Destiny 🙂

Life without tomorrows

ca

Love the quote. 

“Where would we be without tomorrows? What we’d have instead are todays. And if that was the case, with you, I’d hope for the longest day for today. I’d fill today with you, doing everything I’ve ever loved. I’d laugh, I’d talk, I’d listen and learn, I’d love, I’d love, I’d love. I’d make every day today and spend them all with you, and I’d never worry about tomorrow, when I wouldn’t be with you. And when that dreaded tomorrow comes for us, please know that I didn’t want to leave you, or be left behind, that every single moment spent with you were the best times in my life.”
