When an Awkward sound strikes !

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!!

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

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 !!
