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!

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

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…

Mind your wings

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 🙂
