Get up! Get Back!

Resilience

Testing times are tough

They test our faith and everything we believe in.

Hope is ironic; It disappears, when we need it the most!

There are times when we feel let down by everything and everyone.

But, as long as your breath and heartbeat are with you, 

Get up, Get back!

It might hurt a lot and take every bit of your willpower

But, only you decide when your story ends.

It’s after the darkest night that the sun rises!

But, what if the dark night seems incessant.

Then light the fire in your soul.

It gives you strength, determination and guidance. 

Keep looking for hope, faith, solutions

And you will find it.

If we can find a plant in the desert, water in a dry land

Then you can find the willpower, hope and faith to continue.

So , Get up and Get back on the wagon!

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!

Unconditional love

39e85d1392d4f4f327f2bb8ad9ff2a2f--unconditional-love-deep-quotes

It’s rare, elusive and sparse!

Think of the people, you love the MOST

Can you love and accept them, if their flaws are magnified

Would you travel the world, to spend one day with them

Would you stick to them, when the world ostracizes them

Can you love them the same, when they doubt your love

Can you love them the same, when they leave your nest

Maybe you can. Maybe you can’t

BUT

When you find someone who loves you unconditionally

It changes you, forever

It heals your deepest wounds

It brings out the best in you

It is the best metamorphosis that can happen to you!

It’s a bliss, if another person loves you unconditionally

And magical, if you can offer it to you ;

And everyone around you.

When failures inspire you..

tumblr_ngkdminEKY1s4npfeo1_1280

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!!

The Luxury of Silence

rumi

Gg2LbDh

The world has become a cacophony (mixture of incessant sounds) 

Finding silence, alone time and leisure is a luxury.

Blessed are those who have time for themselves

Blessed are those who can contemplate and work in silence!

There is no time to sit and stare

There is no place where you can be absolutely aware.

With every breath I take, I know I am still there

But so often I am caught in my own despair

In these times, all one wants is silence.

They say Silence illuminates the soul

Silence ends the inner dialogue after a while.

It is in this silence I can hear the wind rustle and the birds singing

Silence is my solace where I find all the answers

Silence is my happy place where the best ideas are born

Silence is my cocoon where my soul detoxifies!!

I may get lost in all the noises around me

But, Dear Silence I will always find…

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 🙂
