What is your sneeze type ?

We all sneeze, and sneeze for the same reason – when some external irritants like dust, smoke, pollution, wind causes particles to enter our nose. The brain then sends a signal to get rid of them and we reciprocate by the act of sneezing.

The action of sneezing, being the same, I am often left wondering why there are different types of sneezes..The ones which I have noticed around are…

The loud ones, which often scares you out of your wits, more so, imagine, when you are deeply engrossed in a movie with a bowl of popcorn…the rest of the popcorn is history 🙂

The not so loud ones, but with a sprinkler of droplets of saliva spraying around 😦 (we had a teacher in grade 9, where the front benchers often experienced this. Luckily, for me, my height made me a back bencher, Phew !!( Small mercies of life:) )

The tiny e-sneezes, (where you hardly realize that a person near you has just sneezed), similar to the buzz of a notification on a smart phone.

The machine gun sneeze, multiple sneezes in a single bout of sneeze.

I’m sure, you would have many more types to add to the list above. Do list them out !

Find…

We are often in a hurry, running around, looking to get hold of something….At such times, PAUSE for a while, and we shall FIND.

We are so caught up in the to do’s, chatter of the little hero in our head, gossip, arguments and the like, in the process we forget to listen to that little voice within us. We do not listen to our heart. At such times, we need to stop TALKING and we will LISTEN.

We are stressed at times, not knowing what to do, how to proceed, at the verge of a break down, such times are meant to pull us UP, so stop CRIBBING and we shall SMILE.

Stressful lives, throws all the requisites of politeness, gratitude, simplicity out of the window. A smile, a mindful prayer, a positive thought, a deep breath can all be at our doorstep. STOP YELLING and we will meet SILENCE. 

We need to leave the comforts of a mothers womb to ARRIVE in this world, and we need to LET GO of the world, to arrive and go beyond.

If Not..

If not, for the genuine tears that flow, who would care for the emotions,

If not, for the melancholy of grief, who would appreciate happiness,

If not, for the baffling complexities, who would recognize simplicity,

If not, for the hunger of needs, who would enjoy the cuisines of existence,

If not, for the bitter hatred, who would cherish the unconditional love,

If not, for death, who would care for the gift of invaluable life,

If not, for the deep desire of the soul within, who would care for the experiences !!

 

If everything we got or had would last forever, how would the quality of life be?

We enjoy life, because of the polarities that exist, which makes us strive for and also appreciate our blessings.

The above written post is one of my random ramblings, do feel free to share your thoughts..

A tribute ..

tulips-3373727__340.jpg

You showed up every day,

You lingered in my thoughts,

You walked me through the memory lanes,

You helped me pick my thoughts,

You chose an assorted bouquet of smiles and experiences for me, from my past,

You took me on a journey of ups and downs, tiny and vast,

You were the trigger for my writing,

You were the one to take my posts globe trotting,

Now, I go down the memory lane on my own accord,

And I realize, in the absence of your hand holding,

That I miss you and the ‘word prompt’ meetings with you,

Oh ! DAILY POST, I enjoyed my amazing journey with you,

And wish and hope to see you soon and begin a new journey with you !!

When an Awkward sound strikes !

via Daily Prompt: Awkward

Animal hides don’t create a squeaky sound as they wander in forests, when they lay down and get back on their feet, but a leather recliner might. And I experienced this yesterday at a movie theater. It was an awkwardly hilarious moment for me, (me being the anytime laughter machine).

Awkward, because the sound of the leather recliners made a squeaky sound, a sound very close to a borborygmus, flatulent sound. And hilarious, because the timing of the various chairs deciding to make the sound, based on the movements of its present owners, resulted in a grand musical sonata of sorts, which had me in a peal of laughter, much to the annoyance caused to my elder daughter, who later had no choice, but to join me in my thunder of laughter strike !!

This was an experience of sorts, which will stay in my memory for a while to come !!

My Bestie…

You are calm, you are dutiful,

You connect to the world within me, making me peaceful,

You provide me life and stay a lifetime with me,

 You are my loyal friend, for till the end, you are with me.

When I am angry, you work at a rapid pace,

You are the only one who runs along with me in every race,

You are the most precious asset,

Taking care of you is the best bet,

From the time in the womb to birth, to death,

You are the life saving mechanism, 

I bow down to you for being there for me, my dear BREATH !!

Flaunt your Gratitude, not Attitude!!

via Daily Prompt: Flaunt

celebrate-954794__340.jpg

When we let go of gratitude

We open the doors of life to attitude,

It Brings along a host of its dubious pals,

And we fall prey to their numerous calls,

We then flaunt arrogance, anger, stature and ego in style,

Giving them the unintended importance, for the next mile,

Till we realize our callous attitude,

Which makes us crumble in solitude,

We need to make amends of humongous magnitude

To recall and restore the lost GRATITUDE !!

Fear & Courage

stock-photo-businessman-pushing-red-fear-word-down-with-dollar-sign-and-wooden-ladder-on-top-of-rocky-mountain-228996109.jpg

Courage is the bridge, which helps us tide over our fears,

It sits in the center, to one side it has fear, and one side lies cheer.

It pushes us to enter the realm of boldness,

It nudges us to let go of the fearfulness,

Self reliance, confidence, trust and faith we build,

It gives us nerves of steel to battle against all grids.

Fear and courage  are the two sides of a coin,

Which we encounter in all walks of life,

Fear challenges us with uncertain situations,

Courage dares us to accept it and inch towards solutions.

Lets not get bogged down by fear,

Lets get on with the offers life brings in and accept it with cheer !!

 

 

Tantrum Queen

Oh ! My little darling,

Just added 4 to her age,

Was yelling, crying and wailing,

Was in a fit of rage !

Fit of rage, Not for a toy, not for a crayon,

Not for a chocolate, and not for  pop corn,

But to put her shoe on, Which she couldn’t,

I tried to help, allow ? She just wouldn’t..

All through the car ride on the hills,

She threw tantrums with all her skills,

My attempts to calm her were inept,

The driver giving glances, challenging me on motherhood precepts.

Reaching the room, I tried the cartoon channel,

Tried to pacify her through the food funnel,

Simple splashes of water on her face, gave her the breather,

Respite writ large on my face, her hiatus was my biggest appeaser.
