Baggage

When anything or anyone enters in one’s life, it has its own baggage. Nothing or no one is going to step into your life, unless you are ready for it and its baggage.

The people who become a part of your life have their own dreams, insecurities and thoughts and till the point you are ready to endure, tolerate and believe, they will keep on standing on the periphery of your life. Not everyone glides smoothly in your life. They push your limits and stretch your boundaries. And yes, they enter because now the time has come where you have to slowly move into the next stage of life. Furthermore, you are ready  and also, need to stretch the boundary of yours.

There are people whose progress is subtle and slow and that is all right because these people may not be ready to handle the baggage that comes along and as a result, their process is slower.

For instance, you wish to become a renowned writer, but being a writer is not just limited to writing. Writing is associated with a plethora of things such as networking ability, ability to handle criticism, success not messing up your head etc. So, in most cases, despite having the skill sometimes, things take time because as I said earlier everything comes with a lot of things attached. And Life is preparing you to handle it all.

Just have faith and the thing you can do is to be more you with each passing day.

Don’t make it personal !

When you are an empath, you take things too personally. And it actually isn’t good for the peace of the mind. People have different perspectives and so there is a high probability that their opinion won’t match yours. It’s Ok to accept that. Don’t get convinced easily of the fact that if the other felt in a certain way, you should also feel the same.

It’s good to have different types of people in your life, but the point is if everyone around you is very different from you, you end up doubting your own self. You worry that your thinking is not matching with theirs and if you are sensitive, it can hurt your morale sometimes. You need to know that there are definitely your kind of people in this world, but they aren’t with you currently. So, don’t question that unique spark of yours. Accept and appreciate what you stand for.

Let me share one case, in my close circle, there are 3 friends of mine who are very choosy about their photographs and they keep on telling me that I am a terrible photographer and that they are quite good at photography,  but the reality is,  I easily accept all my pictures irrespective of how I look in them. However, they are very fussy about it. Now, if I take their opinion into consideration, it questions my photography skills whereas in reality, it’s their attitude that is different when it comes to their pictures.

So, I need to know that I need not take it personally. No one is right or wrong. We are not on the same page when it comes to certain things.

Lastly, don’t put in peril the peace of your mind by comparing your opinion with others. Don’t try to make other’s happy at the expense of your own happiness. Your opinion matters. Your decisions matters. Just because you are with a different set of people, who think differently, it shouldn’t make you question your own self. Embrace it all.

Let it go

Let it go

Before it drains

every ounce of happiness out of you

Before you regret

to have held  so long

Before you feel worn out

because of its burden on that mind of yours 

Learn your lesson

And move ahead

Perhaps, you may need to repeat the lesson again

But as of now ,

move away from the space 

Let it go

Go to your happy space 

that’s where you belong

Learn to end your night

And begin your dawn

You can save yourself

The Chosen Path

IMG-20180707-WA0005

I wouldn’t be sad

I wouldn’t blame you

For belittling my path

For you don’t know

What all good I have found here

And how far I have come from my fears

walking on this path

Everytime you say what’s not right about my path

it is a reminder for me to look back

and pay gratitude

‘I chose my own path and got to walk on it . Trust me, not every one gets this chance’

Eternally Blessed…!

Prove

20181031_174204.jpg

I did it again…

And now  I shut my eyes in dismay…

I again tried to prove…

Prove to others…

Prove that I was strong

Prove that I was confident

Prove that I was worthy

Prove that I was enough

Proving to others is the ultimate defeat…

This is not what I want.

All I want is to know my self….!

To be truly aware of who I am….!

Know what’s the real and the glowing in me…!

Emptiness

IMG-20180816-WA0002

I felt hollow

and the emptiness was scratching

the inside of my skin

I clutched my book tighter

it hugged my chest warmly

I wanted to be held 

not by someone but by something

My thoughts held me

I floated with them in the waters

Experienced every drop with them

As awareness poured in

emptiness started to quench

I came out with a new life

that told me the same lesson yet again

You are on the journey

Of becoming You

Neutral Zone

IMG-20180707-WA0006

It’s not about being right

Nor am I wrong

It’s just the way

‘the way it is’

I didn’t take the initiative

nor did I refrain from it

I just did

‘the way it is’

.

.

The zone

that I am learning to be in

is right  in the middle

of two waters flowing differently

life is not judged here,,, it is lived,,,

It’s the neutral zone.

The zone

where you live no right or wrong

The zone

where you live no high or low

You just live ‘the way it is’

The Dearest Decision

The rush of the overspeeding desires in my mind came to a halt , when I took a 4 month break to chase them.

During the last few days of this break, I realised that I didn’t have the stamina required to run at their speed. I wasn’t prepared.

Since then I have been relishing the pleasant breeze of contentment.

Have I stopped chasing my desires?
