To release, is something, which does not come naturally to us humans. We have the tendency to hold on to things, people, wealth, thoughts, life & so on..

I guess, this tendency stems from the fact that if we release the hold, we lose control.

The fear of losing something, makes us hold on to, and we get entwined and entangled in life, like the roots of a tree.

If only, we could all,

Release the aches and pains,

Release the thoughts that refrain,

Release the unexpressed emotions,

Release and let go of the pent up frustration,

Break open the shackles and chains,

Tied up, within, to hold us back in vain,

Release the fears and unwanted self imposed restrictions,

To liberate the stress and accumulated apprehensions.

To free up and create space within,

And release the dormant energy within,

Let go of the unfulfilled incompletions,

Scan ourselves, to release the unwanted,

Detox our mind, and achieve all that we wanted.

Let us release, when we still have energy and Life.

We do not have another chance,

For, when we let go of our breath, we release our life.





How do you feel..

How often do you come across situations, when you plan something and something totally different happens?

You plan to spend time with family/children and enjoy, but instead you end up arguing or disagreeing with one of the members and it upsets you.

You buy a surprise gift for your kids, and are all excited about it. When you give the gift to them, they are oh, I already have this/read this/ not interested 😦

You tend to just go for a stroll with friends and chat up with them, none of them turn up.

You’ve been on an outing with friends, one of them ends up having a difference of opinion with the other, a total misunderstanding, heavy and upsetting isn’t it?

You have just cleared up the table/kitchen counter after dinner, just ready to crash for a good night sleep, your kid comes running in and spills some water and there’s a huge puddle…

After winding up all work for the day, you have some time to yourself, to pick up a book and read, to sketch, paint or anything that YOU really enjoy doing.. and in comes a request for a small odd job or help with homework or a phone call…

You plan an outing, and have unexpected visitors….

I’m sure, the list is endless and each one of you would have definitely come across such situations. How do you deal with such disappointments? Would love to hear your opinions. Pour them in, I would love a spillage of thoughts here. 🙂

Do you Believe

via Daily Prompt: Believe

Board, Believe, Not, Speechless, Marvel

I don’t believe it !! is the most commonly used phrase in the negative sense.
It’s like, there is something good happening to you, and you are not deserving enough to accept it. The universe is giving you goodies, imagine, you have just won a game show, or a lottery, and all you are saying is –

“I DON’T BELIEVE, I’ve just won a lottery “. And you keep repeating the phrase over and over again.

And when you don’t believe it, nobody believes it, the universe does not believe it.

Whatever you pay attention to, grows. So stop concentrating on your negatives and pour your energies to believe in yourself and be grateful for all you’ve got in life, let it grow !!

Changing scales

via Daily Prompt: Deny

To accept, is to be responsible, to deny, is to blame.

We oscillate like a pendulum, between the two, with varying degrees of acceptance or denial.

It is human tendency, to deny responsibility in a given situation, to avoid insult, fear of being berated, punishment or the like. We often see this attribute in children, where they pass the buck – she did this, it’s his fault and so on..As we grow, we realize the futility of the blame game and start to behave maturely and responsibly.

To accept a given problematic situation, to assess it, to let it sink in and act responsibly and move ahead from that point, requires awareness and practice. In my opinion, we as adults continuously move up from a scale of 1 to 10 as we grow up and outgrow the habit and need to deny.

Do share your thoughts on where you stand on this scale  🙂

Bygone Era

via Daily Prompt: Glorious

The glorious era,

Of my childhood, bygone,

Memories etched in sands of time,

And I have simply moved on.

A time when,

Houses were small,

Families were big,

Space was a constraint,

But there were no complaints.

A time when,

We believed in sharing,

A single room with siblings,

A wall for each one of us in the room we shared,

Our favourite posters, creative work on the wall, gladly we would add.

A time when,

There were no birthday parties,

And no friends for sleepovers,

A birthday wish could walk in, uninvited,

A friendship didn’t need to develop under covers.

A time when,

Photography was for special occasions,

Weddings, functions and vacations,

Thirty six clicks in a roll we had,

And we did the job to near perfection.

A time of,

No social networking, and no facebook likes,

A tweet would take a verbal flight,

A like would be a personal face-look like,

And any appreciation truly belonged and was a personal right.

A time of, circulating libraries,

We were enticed by books to run the odd jobs and be the emissaries,

Postman, letters, cards did the communication rounds,

The thrill of receiving it, knew no bounds.

The advent of a computer still unknown,

Apps, games, gadgets all belonged to a future zone,

A lone doll/teddy and board games we had for company,

Street plays and friends we had so many.

Time, we needed to spend or use,

To inspect broken clocks, or things unused,

The current day kids ask, “what did you do to kill time”?

I say, “we never had the instruments or language to commit the crime.”

I could go on and on, about the era so dear to me,

I can recollect the fine memories, etched somewhere in me,

I can’t fathom living, without these occurrences,

I can’t reminisce my life without my childhood experiences.
