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!

That Leap of Faith

 

105e0753cd6105334de93c5e6fdb4d1f

“Sometimes the only transportation you have, is the leap of faith!”

So often we hear, about people taking the leap of faith. It’s not the same as being impulsive. Taking that leap of faith includes, noticing the chaos, discomfort and possible outcomes. And then, having the faith to walk that path, step by step.

And the more you think; the more you twist, turn and manipulate it. So, as abstruse as it sounds. You need to listen and trust your gut.

So often I was told to take that “Leap of faith.” But, I could not. And when it was right, I did take that big leap. BUT, we need to understand, that we do not control the consequences exclusively. It also depends on the circumstances, other people involved and how honest are we with ourselves and our actions.

Take that leap of faith, spread your wings, learn, fall and glide again! If you do not jump, your parachute will never open. You maybe safe, but you will never soar!!

This Heart of mine has its’ own mind

sunset-926762_1920

Shhhhhhhhh…. It’s illogical, it’s insane!

Well, try telling it to my heart

It has a mind of it’s own.

Just when, I think I have it figured out

The heart starts beating faster

And it starts manipulating the mind

Worse, it starts affecting my thoughts and action!

How do I be rational and mature?

When there is a dictator inside me.

Everytime, I ignore my heart, there is chaos in my life

Sometimes, when I listen to it, it’s an absolute bliss!

The other times, Oh Lord, it is a complete miss…

Then, how do I fuction? how do I take decisions?

Do I hear balance? Well try telling that to the mind or the heart

They refuse to co-operate only at crucial times.

Overtime, I have learnt to sleep over what my heart tells

I have also learnt to weigh the consequences of the actions

If I can take the responsibility of the decision, without causing lateral damage 

And without hurting someone beyond repair

Then, I just do it!!

And to the spectators, naysayers, gossipmongers,

Please excuse my heart, As it has a mind of its own

It’s OK to make wrong decisions

maimonides1

It’s ok to make wrong decisions. As the fear of making wrong choices, often freezes us and it leaves us stagnant in life. Action is always better than inaction.

Whenever making a decision, weigh the pros and cons. Sleep over it. Think of the consequences and always remember that “Every action-choice-decision, has a ripple effect in your life and the environment you live in.” So be careful, but don’t be scared!!

There are times, we make wrong choices. We invest in a wrong career, fall in love with the wrong person, make small mistakes that change the route of our lives. It’s not the end of your story. Be strong, face the consequences of your decisions and make amends. Not for the world, but for yourself and the people who were affected by the decisions.

We need to learn to take decisions from a young age. From small things, like what we want to eat, what hobby class do we enroll in, how do we want to spend the savings to what we want to do in holidays. When we start taking decisions, our brains are wired to think and make choices. This will help us, at the pedestal when we need to important decisions. Start early and enjoy the ripple effect….

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.

One act of “Kindness” has the power to change lives!!!

“A little thought and a little kindness is priceless!!”

0263a42ad29311e18b3e1231380f90e0_7

Often in our lives, we have people who come into our lives and help us with unconditional concern or love. They are like guiding lights who show us the path, help us in letting go of the clutter or they merely accept us with all the flaws and the misdemeanours.

When people are lost, it’s’ easy to guide or misguide them. Criticism, judgement and losing faith in them can make them rebels and take them to a point of no return. On the other hand, patience, faith, understanding and a pinch of affection will not only guide them, but it also brings out their highest potential.

Remember, there is no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every drop creates a ripple effect. 

I have been on the receiving end of kindness. And, today I am filled with gratitude. Those seeds of kindness were sowed and nurtured by numerous people. As a result, I try being the most loving and kind person. There have been people who have been my guiding light. Similarly, the best way I can express gratitude to them is by emulating them. 

Finally, if you want more goodness, kindness in the world. PUT IT THERE!! Be the change you wish to see. 🙂

It’s not your story to tell

the-story

They say there are two sides to every story. Well, I think there are many sides to that “same story”. Besides the people who were involved, the bystanders have their own perspective, version. So every person emotes and relates to the same story in different ways, which is reflected in their storytelling.

Some stories reflect people’s struggles, lows, weaknesses, addictions and darkness. But, the vantage point must be the transformation, the courage, the determination; which is often lost when you mix the facts with emotions and judgements.

We all have been judged and we are still busy judging others (be it silently), then how can our stories be authentic, how can we represent a story character, why do we get to decide who is the villain, victim or hero.

We need to be brave to tell our story, kind to tell another person’s story and wise to refrain from telling some stories, as it’s not your story to tell!!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. —Theodore Roosevelt”
