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

Mind your wings

 

 

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.

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 🙂

The Biggest Battles

tumblr_obqxemqhif1u1pgoco1_500

The Biggest battles are not fought with emperors or nations

The Biggest battles are those, that are fought alone

They take the form of fears, insecurities, addictions

And sometimes of dreams and wishes, that are hard to attain.

They sneak towards you, when you are vulnerable

They will tear the walls of peace and happiness

They are very good with illusions

Just when their hold is getting weaker

They will ploy to make your new goals, new life seen empty and worthless.

They will tempt you, trick you and persuade you

They are masters in disguise!

It is the greatest battle fought, in the inner chambers of your soul.

Remember that harder the battle, sweeter the victory

Know the enemy, but know yourself better

Have faith in your strength and resilience 

It may defeat you, but it cannot break your spirit.

In every defeat lies a stronger you

Victory will come 

After making a story worthwhile telling and inspiring..

Don’t come closer

download-1

Don’t take another step ahead

You’ll be able to see all my flaws

It’s a risk you must be willing to take

If you accept the flaws, we can be forever

And if the flaws overshadow the virtues, we will never be!

So it’s a risk we take when connecting with people

Be it friends, relatives, colleagues or someone you look upto.

From far everything looks inviting and awesome

It’s only when we get closer and know it all

That the strength of any bond is tested and sometimes rested.

So decide now

Either stop and like me for the person you think I am

Or come closer and see me for the person I really am

Take this risk

If you win, you will be happy; If you lose, you will be wiser

Come closer but not too much that you get burnt
