Those days…

dove-3426187__340.jpg

There are days in life,

When things just happen,

Thoughts just flow freely,

We feel satisfied and content,

Full of life, happiness and energy..

                                  *

There are days, when we don’t need phones, gadgets or televisions,

The days when we can just hum and sing along for hours,

The days when we can cook a meal with all love flowing through..

                                 *

The days when we practice compassion and gratitude,

The days we have oodles of patience to deal with the tantrums of our little children,

The days when we are able to put up with the whims and fancies of people around us,

The days when nothing can possibly trigger our anger  and irritation.

                                   *

Those are the days, We meet our true self,

That’s the way we all are created,

That’s the way we are all meant to be.

                                   *

So, lets adopt a simple smile,

Imbibe a little peace and calm,

Lets have a little laugh till our stomach hurts,

And lets keep the stress away for a while.

                                   *

Lets all become a little aware,

And  put it into practice..

For a day might arrive,

We can just go with the flow of life,

Give ourselves another chance,

To dance and sway to life’s trance.

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 !!

Who stays within you?

via Daily Prompt: Shock

You will be in for a shock, as you enter in to the dark cave within the temple of your thoughts. Layers of dust gathered, cobwebs dangling, a musty stale odor within. The little trinkets and collections you so carefully picked up and decorated the walls of the temple with so much care, is now in shambles. I guess, you are sad looking at this state of your collections. Rightly so, you had taken care to nurture each one of them and give them an important place within your inner temple.

You carefully start to clean up the cobwebs, remove the layers of dust and let the light beam within. With the ray of light coming in, you are able to see and feel thoughts of anger you felt, hurt someone had caused years ago, frustration with yourself for not measuring to your own standards, cozily tucked, cushioned and nested under the blankets of your thoughts.

You feel so foolish, for nurturing and carrying the thoughts of hurt, anger, frustration within.  You decide, to clean up. You spray a freshener of love and peace into the space, by letting go of all those unwanted burdens.

After all, life is not worth being weighed down under the weight of unwanted baggages. !!

Walk a while…

via Daily Prompt: Confess and Cozy

stock-photo-woman-hand-finger-walking-with-shoe-concept-595969619.jpg

Walk a mile, for a while,

With your pain, with your anger,

With your mental hurt, which makes you ponder,

Do not carry them for long,

For they are not meant to come along,

As you climb the rungs of the ladder,

To reach your destination for this life.

Confess to your own inner self,

Get cozy and friendly with your own higher self,

Let go of the hurt, pain anger and angst,

Which lays buried deep within the dungeon of the mind and soul,

Release the toxic thoughts and let them roll,

Trick them and get them out for a walk,

In the bright sunshine and fresh air,

Let them blow and burn down,

Be free, and walk a mile for a while,

For it will do good for your heart and soul !!

 

You are worth it !!

via daily prompt :overcome

 

When a needle pricks you, only you feel the pain. Others can only sympathize with you. When you bruise yourself in the process of your day to day work, only you can feel the pain. Others can only comfort you. When you feel hurt, something pricks you deep within the heart.  This pain deep within, is solely yours. Nobody can help you in carrying that load of pain.

sad-674809__340

When something deeply hurts you, you feel very small, insignificant and worthless. Everything around you starts to feel hollow and worthless. People, relationships, feelings, emotions, values everything goes for a toss. In this whole process, the pain is only and only caused to you. It is you, who has allowed the other person to empty out his/her garbage onto you-Sometimes, you don’t have a choice, especially, if it’s your boss at the other end. You have been the recipient of the flurry of harsh words meted out at you or you are feeling the pain of a loved one not inquiring about you, or your teacher rebuking you. You are feeling awful about this. I’m sure, most of us have been here, gone through this at some point in life.

love-broken-heart

Sometimes, such things happen, and you do feel the pain and burden deep within. You cannot control the words and action of another person who has treated you thus, but you and only you can control the way you want to feel about and after this experience and here, you have a choice..

The only way to heal the scar on your heart or overcome this, is to let go. By letting go here, I mean, let go off that frustration, that pain, that anger, that the particular interaction has caused within you. You can let go by following what you love to do. Follow your passion/hobby. You can write, sing, draw, shout your lungs out, box a pillow, write about your feelings on a piece of paper and shred it into pieces. Choose, what feels good for you, but have it flushed out of your system. Unburden and clean your heart. After all, it’s the most important organ you have. Send out love  to your heart. If you keep dumping load on it, it’s bound to fail, and you cannot afford that, for you are important and you are worth it !!

Priceless Gems.

via Daily Prompt: Priceless

 

 

As a kid, mom and dad, you had laid a foundation of priceless gems in me and my siblings. Gems in the form of moral and ethical values, humility, being grateful, faith, adjustments, courage and the like.

Whenever, the wall of my being, cracked in doubt, about  truth or lie, mom and dad, you filled my cracks with the right bit of advice in the form of anecdotes, stories which I could follow and made me strong.

Whenever I cracked  with arrogance and anger you educated me the values of being humble and patient.

When I felt low, you taught me the virtue of being grateful.

When I buckled under pressure and fell, you were there to hold my hand and support me and  get me back on my feet.

Even today, when I falter between right and wrong, I am able to reap the values and benefits of the priceless gems you imbibed in me.

No doubt, I have added a lot to my collection of gems, in the form of different experiences and have learnt a lot in and from life. I am able to add levels very easily, without worrying about a collapse and I can do this as the foundation is strong.

Thank you dear parents, for the strong foundation you laid years ago to help me deal with different load bearing structures in life.

This post is dedicated to my dear parents, with all my love 🙂

A bagful of love.

via Daily Prompt: Precipice

gift-bags-2067663__340.jpg

When you are at the fag end of life,

Looking back at your life, when you realize,

Oh ! I had a bag, full of love, Which I could have showered on my loved ones,

I had a bag, full of happiness, which I could have shared with people,

I had a bag, full of kindness and compassion, which I could have given to the needy,

I had a bag, full of gratitude, which I could have been grateful for.

These were the qualities which were packed within me, and which got buried deep within my heart forever…

Instead, what I chose to use was, all those qualities, which I picked up during the course of my life. Now I remember, my creator had forbidden me from using them – anger, hatred, jealousy. I got so carried away, I became greedy, wanted more money, got attached to things and ignored people.

I always had ample of love, kindness, compassion…I could have.. If only I had some time to live, I would shower it on the people who loved me and cared for me…

If you are reading this and  have a bagful of love, please shower it, before it’s too late, before you are hanging from the  precipice of life…

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.

 

 

 

Hesitate

via Daily Prompt: Hesitate

stock-photo-young-slim-woman-has-to-decide-between-two-directions-girl-in-white-full-of-doubts-and-hesitation-440995552-1

Hesitate not, to leap forward,

Hesitate not, to reach the sky,

Hesitate not, to march ahead,

Hesitate not, to live life full out,

Hesitate not, to offer a helping hand,

Hesitate not, to share a bite,

Hesitate not, to spread a smile,

Hesitate not, to give out love.

BUT,

Do take a moment  to,

Hesitate, before you react,

Hesitate, before your anger bursts,

Hesitate, before your action hurts,

Hesitate, before you are curt.

A combination of  ‘Hesitate Not’ and ‘Hesitate’ moments, is what situations are all about.

‘Hesitate not’, to share your thoughts 🙂

Arid

via Daily Prompt: Arid

emotions-1988745__340

Life is a mix of people and people are a mix of emotions. Happy, sad, bubbly, angry, selfish…

There are a few people though, who are emotionless – arid..People who are  in a vacuum of positive emotions – they are drained out. Drained out of love, happiness, cheer and joy. They only harness emotions of negativity like anger, hatred, jealousy and selfishness. They fail to enjoy the small joys of life around them. They are in a cocoon and that’s their life. In a world full of bright light, they know not, what sunshine is 😦
