Endless thoughts..

Your or mine

Life is like a bottle of wine.

With years and years

It comes stronger

the taste, the smell, or the color.

A huge void is everywhere today. We don’t know where we are heading to. The void due to uncertainty of life, the void due to fear of losing someone is today’s reality. Keeping distance is the medicine of today’s illness. Gone are days when we celebrate togetherness.

Life indoors is more difficult to carry on. But we are helpless because we can not see our enemy. Was it our destiny? Millions of people taking their last breath because breathing is now the most expensive thing. Can we just play hide and seek or stand fearless in front of this pandemic?

Today being positive is no more positive. But we are positive, Positive towards a new dawn. Who will bring this new light? We together or alone? Let’s keep aside all the fear and anxiety and think about whom you are carrying in your heart now and then. Distances can not stop you to carry someone in your heart.

Although there is silence everywhere, we are still busy in our lives. We have many great deals on our heads. What will happen next? We are busy with our frustration, we are busy with our plans, gossip, anger and more. Relax and ask yourself, when there is a better option then why are all these keeping us busy? Yes, there is a better option to stay busy and it is you. You can find yourself in a new way. Listen to your heart and body, it has been whispering to you for many years. Do not ignore it as before. Spread love and care and start it with yourself.

There is no end of thoughts…to be continued..

My young lady.

She scolds me,

Mama, still the spoons are messy…

Looking at me, with care

She use to say, “Mama, why you are becoming fatty?”

Oh, my young lady, you are the one

For whom I am always busy.

Tieing your hair, I often she

You are the one, who reflects me.

Every day your hundreds of questions and the most loving one is, “Mama when you’ll grow up, what do you wanna be?”

I say Mama grew up already.

Now the time is to look you growing happy.

Then she asks, “when I’ll grow up will you be able to recognize me?”

Of course my dear….

“But if I become Pikachu I guess you won’t
Stay as my mummy.”

Here is my turn to be surprised entirely.

Candid moment with my young lady🥰

Life goes on..

It is a big dilemma that… life is short when you like it and life becomes very long when you do not enjoy it. Above all, we live life with joy and grief, with struggle and glory. It has many stages but we live so many times to die once. Just after birth, we start to play many roles. A script has written for you where you have to play many roles and you may not get the best performer award, you may not be the superstar but still, you can sparkle like a star.

It was difficult for me to stay away from what I love. Without reading and writing, I was just struggling with my hard days due to bad health conditions. But there was something that always realizes me pick up stones of my path and built a staircase to step upwards.

Although life is not a bed of roses. Hardships are there to make or to break you, but nobody is there without testing life’s hardship. In my hard time, I prefer to read and repeat these beautiful lines in life.

Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.”- Paulo Coelho

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.”- Og Mandino

In tough times, everyone has to take their share of the pain.”-Theresa May

Life goes on…

Sleeping babies😇😇

My mother’s pet.

These sleeping babies are the sunshine of my mother’s home. My youngest sister sent me these pics. These three beauties have their standards of living. They always share a good bonding. Looking at these pics, I remember our mother used to tell us that her pets share more love and care than her children😅(at that time we were Lil children and had another cutie)

3 effective ways to enhance your inner beauty

When you say about beauty, it depends on how you define it? Because as per the dictionary, beauty is a combination of various qualities that pleases the aesthetic sense, especially the sight. Anything that looks good always attracts human eyes; a beautiful flower or a beautiful drawing, a beautiful dress or a beautiful smile. But there is something more beyond the sight.

There is no correct statistics to define your beauty. It depends on the way you present yourself and the way you live. More or less the makeup you wear on your face can cover your spots or scars or you can shine but you don’t need to wear anything expensive to reflect your inner beauty. The attire of your intellectual is something different from the so-called designer outfits, which enhances your beauty from inside you. When you feel good from the inside your look good from the outside and when you make your internal beautiful, it echoes your outside.

True beauty is not really what color your hair is or what color your eyes are. True beauty is about who you are as a human being, your principles, your moral compass.”–Ellen DeGeneres.

I have listed 3 effective steps to enhance your inner beauty to please your soul and to motivate others. I am sure this will work for you.

Find out your unique quality.

We all are created for a good purpose and we all have our unique quality. But you will feel sorry that most of us spend our whole life without knowing that, what is our unique quality?

It is very important to know yourself and to accept yourself as you are. You can nurture your ordinary quality to make it extraordinary. But for that, you need to respect yourself and admire your existence. Unless and until you realize your value you cannot find your hidden qualities. Whatever you accomplish with full of heart, you can see that can grow more inside you.

Let’s simplify it.

1. Respect yourself and believe in yourself.

2.Nurture your ordinary quality and make it extraordinary.

3. Admire every small skill and accomplish it from your heart.

Practice self-love

Self-love is the way to become beautiful internally. It doesn’t mean to be selfish or insensitive. You always do many things to satisfy your near and dear ones. As a family person, you have many roles to play. But you ignore the most important one and that’s you. When you do not accompany yourself, at the end of the day you get dishearten and this leads to irritation, stress, and depressions. Remember, an unsatisfied soul can not satisfy others. A heart full of disappointment can not please others. You must have love and care inside you to pour it outside. So, every day you should do something pleasant to pamper yourself. Like, Cook your favorite meal or listen to your favorite music, or do something that you love to do. Don’t underrate your liking. Be cheerful inside to cheer outside. One truth you can’t deny is that you can not please everyone. Some people will scrutinize your every deed to find out a fault. If you are full of enthusiasm and self-confidence, you will be able to ignore those unfavorable quite easily.

Remember, your journey or your story is as valuable as others. You may feel less powerful but ask yourself from where you have started. Acknowledge your efforts. One life, make it..

Enjoy your company and increase your inner stength. There is nothing strange if you think more about yourself. When you care and pamper yourself it keeps you mentally strong. After all mental health matters. This will help you to stay fit and strong physically. And a healthy person can take care of others, not a patient.

Taking off time for yourself, or enjoying your own company can give rise to a smile from your heart. This smile will always enhance your internal grace.

Include your intellectual growth with self-love. Stay updated and keep learning. Be creative and strengthen your social intelligence.

Be grateful.

Life has given us lots of good things for which we must be grateful every day. Be thankful for all those factors which make life beautiful. Despite so many negativities, an optimist finds out those precise aspects for which life becomes joyous. Look at your surrounding and realize the value of your relationship with your loved one. Stay connected with nature. Look at those beautiful things around you. Although life is a gift.

When you practice gratitude, you become thoughtful and simple. You will start to be more compassionate and feel more humming. This boosts your positive emotion. But there is not always everything in your favor. You experience many negatives in life. These give you a tough challenge and being grateful teaches you to accept and overcome those challenges or on the other hand, you must be thankful for the challenges that impel you more powerful.

So, start listing all those small things for which you’re grateful. Keeping a gratitude journal is the most useful idea. The saying of Henry Ward Beecher is very much related to the topic and that is, “Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.”

Conclusion

We are not perfect but we have a distinct identity. Our external beauty fades away but the inner beauty which makes us special never evaporates. Good thing is that by enhancing our inner beauty we enjoy life more.

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is light in the heart.”-Khalil Gibran

Value of simplicity: How to follow simplicity in life.

In this modern era, a simple lifestyle is becoming popular among people who want to live a peaceful and high-quality life. The term simplicity is different for different people. But living a life with simplicity means they have almost the same philosophy of life.

Simplicity is a habit or a perspective that you practice for living. It comes with so many advantages.

When you embrace simplicity in life you understand the value of every penny. You work hard for your living and you have the freedom to choose things for yourself or your’s. There is nothing unusual when you choose a few amenities over simplicity. Because simplicity is not the opposite of amenity. It is the opposite of complexity. When you mess up your living with unnecessary it creates complexity.

“Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played vast quality of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.” –Fredreic Chopin.

Simplicity teaches us to be more focused on the stuff that matters more. This is how we get rid of the distraction from unwanted noisy stuff. Here is the term minimalism comes to our mind. But I think minimalism refers to the term simplicity but simplicity doesn’t always ask to be minimalist. Though simplicity sounds more similar to minimalism but to be a minimalist we need to be sharp and need to adopt extreme spareness. In the other hand, simplicity is a state of mind to stay uncomplicated and modest.

Choosing the policy of simplicity reduces stress and debt and produces adore and sympathy. You laugh more when you learn to be simple. You enjoy your every little win when you adopt simplicity in life. This makes your mind clutter-free along with your home and workspace.

Simple living and high thinking. This line holds the additional miles when you cultivate simplicity because you become more open with an uncomplicated living. You prefer to be realistic rather than materialistic. Your happiness doesn’t depend on things. It depends on your state of mind. Your quality of thoughts boosts with your lifestyle.

Accept simplicity from your heart. If you want to embrace simplicity in life you need to think and accept it from your heart. You need to fall in love with it. Because only strategies are not going to work for you. Your heart and your soul must have the urge for it.

How to follow simplicity in life?

You live a life in your way. If you are someone who doesn’t have time to be a part of an unnecessary drama, then simplicity is the precise route for you. It is as simple as being natural. Let’s have a look at some basic points to follow a simpler lifestyle.

1. Remember life is simple. It becomes complicated when you don’t have the right attitude. So change your attitude to simplify everything in your life.

2. Be yourself. Know yourself. Keep consuming positivity. Don’t be overly concerned about others judgement.

3. Stop being fake. Unneeded show-off should be avoided. Be natural. When you find the true vision of being natural you will realise what makes more elegant. Your wisdom and learnings are more expensive than your elements.

4. Be more creative. Do meditation to connect your sanity. Allow yourself to breathe freely.

5. Remove toxins from your life. Identify those toxins which create trouble. Toxic people or toxic appliances need to be wiped out.

6.Declutter your home and workspace. You don’t need to throw out the storages but be organised with them.

7. Understand that you don’t need to satisfy everyone. If you try to please each one at a time things will be more complicated for you. Stay away from it.

Conclusion

Simplicity differs from person to person. But Life is as simple as that. Accepting simplicity will lead to a more successful life. Think about the complicated mathematics of your textbook..and feel what happens when you simplify it and get the answer. It feels so good. Isn’t it? Simplification of lifestyle is as good as that.

What is your understanding of simplicity in life? Will you like to add more points to the list?

Love or lie

That dark night

When stars refused to shine

The sparkle of your eyes

Chose to lighten me

There was something

Which I couldn’t find

Oh, a little spark

Are you love or lie?

Life gives us many things. Some are always a mystery. When you find something on your trouble you do not understand them whether those are for you or against you.

What do you think about it? Have you ever thought that sometimes you are unable to find whether it is love or lie?

Hope shouldn’t die

Hope shouldn’t die
If you want to fly,
To touch the sky
With your soul.
Who knows you?
Nevermind.
Wings that come
From your sanity
You know
There is something
Who drags you
To the mud
But if you see
A little sapling
Always looks up,
Though it knows
The sky never comes to it
Still, it grows
Looking up the high.


Never claim it as poetry just I am trying to express my thoughts poetically.

I am hopeful. Looking up the high. Miles to go and lets hope never die.

Welcome, 2021.
