How to Travel without Travelling ?

This may seem like an absurd thought and I wouldn’t try to defend the sensibility that it may have because, it has just happened once to me and that too yesterday only.

So, I had a two day weekend this time and throughout the day I was thinking like which place should I head to. Factors impacting my decision were Corona, the soaring temperatures and the availability of a companion. Unfortunately, nothing was in my favour. I had given up on any travel whatsoever. The only saving grace was The Grocery Store visit. I had to repeatedly ask my family members to give me some items on my checklist as all the items were already in the kitchen cupboards. However, after my repeated poking, they gave me names of few items that they would be needing sometime in the future, but not right now.

Anyway, the grocery trip did pacify my craving for travel for sometime. However, by night time I was again restless. So, I though let me talk to people, maybe it will help. Luckily, three of the people who were available for the conversations were my favourites. So I called and chatted and discussed some real stuff and also made a plan with one of them for the next weekend ( fingers crossed).

It gave me a sense of fulfillment. It felt like I had travelled somewhere just by talking to these chaps.

So, may be a good conversation is equivalent to a good travel.

We’ll see if this work next time as well.

Till then Ciao !

Fate

Fate. What is it? Is it a camouflage to hide our failures or is it real? Is it an illusion or can it really make a story go from rag to riches?

I have never really felt strongly about fate. I mean, how can you hold some stars accountable for what is happening in your life.

But now as I am living each day, I am coming to terms with the fact that there is something much beyond the thinking of my mind. There are times no matter how hard you try, luck is not in your favour and sometimes you get too lucky and yet on other days, things are just as ‘normal’ as you had expected.

I have been observing it recently,  that whatever happens in our lives, we link it to winning and losing or may be happiness and sadness or worthiness and unworthiness . However, it is just meant to mould us in a certain way, to make us ready for the future needs,and just to learn or unlearn things.

Recently,  there have been three incidents in my professional life, which are quite appalling,  yet neither of these incidents happened because of someone’s inadequacy or  fault. It was just fate happening. And when you see such things happening, which are beyond  anyone’s control, you finally surrender to the Higher Power. You shut all the doors and open the door of your heart and what you feel within for those few moments is priceless. You just start embracing life.

You just start believing in this ‘Fate’. 

Fate , be it good or bad , teaches you how to take everything in your stride and accept the life.

Second Guessing

I’m elated today after seeing my improvement. Today, I was in a situation where I had to give a speech. It was an impromptu one. My voice trembled a little bit through the speech. I wouldn’t shy away from saying that I was nervous. I was but it wasn’t nervousness out of fear, more of out of excitement.

Now, coming to the theme of my speech, it was quite different from what others said. When the event got over and I got some time to recapitulate things in my mind, I found myself second guessing my speech. But this time, I didn’t really let it hit me hard. Rather, I just responded to myself by saying ‘ I know that it’s just a pattern of mine, where I doubt my decisions, my work , my opinions etc. ‘ I was aware this time. So, it didn’t affect me much.

Morever, whatever happens, be it good or bad has to happen. It’s how your path is supposed to be. And, that  will make you what you are actually meant to become.

So, go ahead and embrace all days. Also, as said by Rupi Kaur , poet of Indian origin. ‘Healing is a daily process.’

Is that Letter for me?

It’s a very short story unlike its title.

There is this kid and lately, I have been seeing a folded white paper in his hand and that is escalating my curiosity levels. He is keeping that paper very carefully. Rather, I would say extremely mindfully.

Our relationship is like Tom and Jerry. We kind of annoy and test each other’s limit . He is kind of short tempered and I ,on the other hand, am a very patient person( the age factor maybe).  I just observe and smile while he aggressively struggles to elucidate his point.

Being in his company is like listening to a riveting tale. I look forward to it. He is 6 years younger to me . Though he is very mature, yet I often make fun of him saying he is just a kid. He retorts by showing his Driver License and other ids as a proof of being not a kid and that actually cracks me up.

I don’t know why I feel this way but that folded white paper is surely addressed to me.

He is just waiting for the right moment to give it.

Journal One

Some days, you are in control. You are disciplined and there is a routine. Life seems to move in the right direction. You know you are growing , days are useful and you are happy and content with your pace.

And then there are days, you don’t know who is running your life. Where are your days going. You feel directionless. Aimlessly wandering anywhere. It’s not that you don’t have a plan in your mind but somehow it’s not coming into action. You are being swayed without your permission. Seriously, it’s like, I wasted this day also. And unintentionally you esacape again and again from life via binge watching, music, walk and what not and when you come back to reality, then it’s time to sleep baby.

So, why I am writing this? Do I have a solution for this ? Not really. But to say the least, I am atleast aware that reins of my life are no longer in my hand and I want to write it down. Write because such days will always come and I will feel helpless. It’s ok. Writing and awareness will be the first step to get on track. I know a lot seems to be fixed within me and I am trying .Writing always heals me in some way. It is magical sometimes.

Just right now, I am feeling so relieved and I know things will make a little more sense tomorrow.

Adios…Hope we all enjoy the Sunrise and the Sunset…!
