Are you extra ordinary?

As a matter of fact, we are all ordinary human beings. There are billions in the world, and we  are just a drop in the ocean, just one of them. We often take ourselves for granted and do not realize our true potential. We do the mundane jobs and tag ourselves with stress and modern lifestyle ailments.

To think of  all the extra ordinary feats, a Mahatma Gandhi, or a Mother Teresa or a Nelson Mandela  achieved, being ordinary human beings? Human beings are no ordinary beings, they are extra ordinary. If they operated at maximum efficiency, they could even pluck the stars, and the above names are an example of that.

Similarly, if you take the example of mother nature, we take it so much for granted, we consider it as ordinary..we don’t realize her value..mountains, trees, rivers..are all there.. But have you ever thought of the tree, which bears the fruit never consumes it, always gives it, the river which carries water, never drinks it, it always flows to serve others. How extra ordinary is that? If we could have a combination of an efficient human being and a forever giving nature inspired by Mother nature, the quality of life on this planet would be unimaginable…

If we could even, become aware of what we are capable of and live in harmony with nature, we can provide for the rest of the living species, and still have ample of it, then we could rename our earth as ‘heaven’, isn’t it?

I’m Thankful for the tag.

Hi All,

A big thank you to Pradita Kapahi from The Pradita Chronicles for my very first tag. I’m just feeling excited, typing this out.

Pradita’s blogs are exceptional and I simply love her blogs. Her command over the language and her way with words flow so freely and it’s from the heart. I am amazed at her ability to do so. Please do visit her blogs at https://thepraditachronicles.com.

Now for the rules of the game –

  1. Name 3 things you are thankful for
  2. Nominate some fellow bloggers to continue the TAG
  3. Device a logo for your tag.

The 3 things I’m thankful for..

  1. My health – Health is wealth, so goes the saying and I’m a strong believer of this. If you are healthy, you can achieve anything in life. If your health fails you, your dreams, your ambitions will just remain so and will make you stressful and anxious. So health is number 1 priority.
  2.  My present – I’m thankful for my present life. I feel, it’s a present to me from the almighty. He has placed me comfortably well, with a loving and caring family to fall back upon, wonderful kids and a bunch of good friends. 🙂
  3. My followers : Yes, my followers on my blogs, and the likes and comments inspire me and help me think through different aspects of life through different perspectives. I thank each and every one of you for being there to read and appreciate my work. A big hug to all of you.

 

I nominate the following fellow bloggers for this tag.

Minimal

sad-674809__340

Every person has a right,

To live life to the optimal,

Keeping pricks and hurtful

words to the minimal.

It’s one life,

Why live with a strife ?

Seek and give  forgiveness,

Seek and project  love,

Be aware, and reduce the hurtful words you send,

For it is very difficult to sew and mend,

 

A broken heart, which has to keep up till the very end.

What’s your Label

via Daily Prompt: Label

infographic-1798327__340.png

We often become judgemental about people and label them or tag them in varied ways…cute, haughty, angry, proud, rude, funny, so full of himself, stubborn, grumpy, irritable….. and then, we base all our future communication with that person having that judgement as a base in our mind.

Have you ever thought of what is your label ? Have you ever labelled or given a tag to yourself ? What would your label read ? A point to introspect…..

Controversy

via Daily Prompt: Controversy

fight-2134407__340

It’s the nature of some people,

To look and pick for controversies.

To satisfy their urge and need to argue and quarrel,

To satisfy their ego,

Why  pick and prick, dig and delve?

Why read into the untold.

When there is a lot to be heard and told?

I wish, such people learn,

To take people at their face value,

And not read in between the lines,

To unearth something controversial.

The Massive Bugs

via Daily Prompt: Massive

stock-vector-cute-cartoon-office-workers-calm-and-angry-vector-illustration-397078087

Carrying anger, jealousy and hatred packed in a bag,

We are off to a journey of life with a swag,

Chasing the goodies of life, with a tag,

Leaving family, friends and love in a lag.

 

Struck by the massive emotional bug,

Has put a halt to the development of human chug,

Which is causing upheaval and turbulence,

Life is about neglect, irrational behavior, devoid of love and repentance.

stock-vector-big-set-of-electronic-devices-on-gray-112720930

 

There’s one other huge bug, called the electronic disorder,

In which you typically stare into a bright screen or monitor,

You commune with it all day and night,

Not caring to look at any picturesque sight.

 

There’s one for every family member,

To keep up with the mania and fad,

Recreations and breaks are on phones and ipads,

The affliction of this virus is a family malware.

 

Lets all get out of our systems, these massive bugs,

Lets practice silence and go hands free,

Where mind can hold kindness and compassion,

And hands can hold, hands of love and regain its lost attraction.

 

 

 

The story of a woman..

via Daily Prompt: Immerse

woman-1733881__340

As a child, she is immersed in  playing,

As a student, she is busy studying & learning,

As a teenager, she  is busy  in seeing and experiencing,

As a young adult she believes in working and experiencing,

As a grown up, she experiences marriage and family.

And then, the tale continues. Once a family lady, she dons the hat of multitasking, that of a working woman, a wife, mother, daughter, daughter in law, teacher, nurse, chef, singer, writer, actor, caretaker – you name it and she has it. Today’s woman is fully immersed physically, mentally and emotionally in whatever she takes up and stands up tall  to take on the challenges of life.

Other than the compensation she draws for her professional work, all the other work or chores she does, are due to her love and involvement with the family. It is a thankless job and often taken for granted. Her only motivator would be a few loving words from family members, an acknowledgement, for the innumerable tasks performed day in and day out, a smile, a warm hug, an appreciation…. it does a lot good to her emotionally, to carry on..

This blog is a salute to all the WOMEN folk, around the globe for their relentless service to humanity.

 

PS : To all the men folk out there reading this blog, this is no way an underestimation of work  or contribution done by you guys. Men and women are two sides of the same coin. It’s just a heartfelt tribute to the ladies from another fellow lady.

 

 

 

 

 

Oh !! Mind..

via Daily Prompt: Murmuration

human-2099157__340

Clitter clatter, chitter chatter,

You have so many topics to offer,

Murmur, murmur, murmur, murmur,

You arrange everything on a platter.

You take me through  a thought of mirror maze,

Where I reflect on my own thoughts,

You take me on a giant wheel,

When life almost comes to a standstill !!

You take me through the past happenings,

You take me on a future date,

You make me all apprehensive,

With actually no reason to believe.

The only way I can put a cessation,

To your non stop murmuration,

Is placing you under observation,

Letting go of your thought projection,

And subjecting you to deep relaxation,

By following the process of meditation.

Oh, mind !! You are such a wonderful creation !!
