Way SLOW!!!

I feel like I’m way SLOW!

As if I don’t belong here…

The world is getting busier, moving from the countryside to towns, moving towns into cities

And here I am!! Wishing that I lived a country life in one of the buzziest cities of this busy world…

❤️

I feel like I’m way SLOW!!

As if I don’t fit in here..

Alongside this efficient and punctual, deadline driven world

All I want to do is watch the leaves getting blown away by the wind..

❤️

I feel like I’m way SLOW!!

As if I speak a different language in the money run world

I speak of barter, I speak of intentions and I speak of gifts 🎁

Good wishes, the heartfelt ones make the biggest difference

❤️

I feel like I’m way SLOW!!

And lazy even… I stubbornly hold on to my authenticity

Putting my meager reputation at stake

I wouldn’t push myself even a hundredth of an inch, for being someone you’d like me to be

❤️

I feel like I’m way SLOW!!!

My goals keep changing, reducing rather..

From making a big change in this world, to simply being me!!

I’m diminishing in ambition and yet ever expanding

❤️

I feel like I’m way SLOW!!

Waking up to my tune, not in charge of the household

Not in charge of anyone but me..

My ego is invisible mostly, as the labels don’t really bother anymore

❤️

I am way SLOW!!! and I love it this way!!

Creating the ‘backward’ space of living in a bubble..

Letting others get you or not..

Letting go of the need to explain..

❤️

I am way SLOW!!! I’ve stopped existing for others..

I’m finding the mean to reach to this place that exists in my head

Where everything just happens

Out of ease and joy.. with intentions playing it all out

❤️

I am way SLOW… n yet I am there..

I might have chosen the slowest n yet the speediest way to get there..

Cuz slowing it down actually solves everything ..

It clearly makes the distinction between the thoughts that I confuse to be ME!!!

❤️

I am way SLOW…

I am..

Meant to be yours, the way you found it!!!

A reason why you don’t feel like using the ‘tried and tested’

It works for others, but you’re sure..this one…will not work for you

❤️

Everyone,especially your loved ones suggest,

See, this worked for ‘x’ and ‘c’

You must try this, and this time with determination!!!

❤️

No one gets you, for a reason!

They’re different than you,for a reason..

❤️

They say it,cuz they’re expecting RESULTS

Predictable n stable

Something fickle they assume will last forever

And keep you happy..

❤️

Yeah!!! That’s the main reason..

Everyone wants to see you happy,

With money or atleast some fixed income

❤️

N wants you Married ( so that u share your joys with another you can call your own)

N then wants you to have kids..

How can you not have them??? (They say)

❤️

N if you’re a guy, they want you to have a tension free job

N if you’re a woman, they wish that you be able to cook the best dishes

And feed your spouse and kids, n family

❤️

If you’re a kid,they want you to do well at school

And then at college, probably ENGINEERING ( they think it makes you happy LOL)

And then they wish you have a stable job..

❤️

And spouse n kids….hahahaha

What ever happened to creativity and imagination..

❤️

Well, they’re our loved ones, and probably

The only way they know to love is

To worry about our joys and happiness

❤️

And probably see us ‘settled’ in a way they know to be ‘settled’

That’s them.. and we love them

❤️

With our rebellious hearts, in rebellious ways..

They may feel, we care less

But that’s how we care!!!

❤️

We care more by caring less..

That’s the only way we know

To bridge the gap

❤️

There was a time, gaps were bridged by

Putting oneself last

And putting the other first

❤️

That’s an unknown for the new generation

They know how to care for everyone, but they must come first

Cuz if they’re full and overflowing,

They have a lot to pour out from..

❤️

Emptiness is a cliché

Or may be not!!

❤️

It’s a way of knowing what’s whole..

It’s our way of experimenting

❤️

Knowing empty so we can know full!!

Know emptiness from up close, hungrily demanding abundance..

So loud and clear, that the call is answered..

❤️

And look for signs that acknowledge our abundance

Like the air we breathe..isn’t supplied in tanks..

It’s out there for us to inhale..

❤️

Like the oceans endless

Our eyes tire, but the oceans don’t..

The earth, accommodating all of us lovingly..

❤️

We’re a happier folks like the ones before..

And the ones before that n the ones before..

❤️

The news says otherwise and I guess that’s their job

It’s their job to seek chaos as efficiently as ever

And veil the well being

❤️

But for us, who never read

Or watch

The world is still a happy and peaceful place

❤️

That starts and ends at our desk, or in the quarter of our room

But most importantly

Radiates out of our heart

❤️

The desire to be ‘whoever’ we choose

Irrespective of the ‘settling’ demands of our loved ones

We carefree souls

Trust more than our hearts admit

❤️

Love knows no control

It simply exists and allows

❤️

Allows all well being that exists

Already…

N let’s it grow

❤️

Everything is wellbeing

Even the perceived lack of it..

❤️

That makes it real easy for us to choose..

Whatever we choose,is wellbeing..

Whether perceived or not..

❤️

And if you’re smarter, you’d rather choose well being itself

than the lack of it..

❤️

As I’ve heard ‘you are so free that you can even choose bondage’

And it would be granted as freedom..

❤️

It’s too simple to be decoded

N it gets as complex as can be..

❤️

Enjoy the meaning you find in it..

And don’t bother to match it with others..

It’s meant to be ‘yours’ the way you found it

Anew

Something new!! Like has never happened before..

An emotion, a feeling, may be a person, or an idea..

That freshness of an experience for the first time..

❤️

Some food you tried for the very first time

Or a color you saw, that you have never seen before

May be the sunrise in the most beautiful fashion

❤️

A road you took that you had never taken

Or a dress that makes you look new

Music like you’ve never heard before

❤️

A wish, that is crisp and new,

Visited you for the very first time

That watch or probably that view

❤️

❤️
Y
n waters like never before

A city different from yours

A language you have never heard or spoken

❤️

A movie that breaks ground

A smile that makes you feel special

Familiar eyes in stranger skin

❤️

Meeting your country men in a different country

Speaking your heart sans words

Wishing differently than all others you know

❤️

Choosing something new

A new flavor, or maybe new company

A different date

❤️

Waking each day at a different hour

The birds chirping a new tale

Making tea unpredictably

❤️

That space of NEW,

unexplored territory

Exactly why life feels alive

❤️

Be*ability vs. Likeability

Is it really our true nature to exist in ways that make us likeable?

I think not! 

We may have gotten ourselves trained, generations after generations, in the most undetectable manner, to exist in a way that gets us rave reviews..

It is funny how the streak of ‘being me’ as opposed to being liked just kept getting stronger n grew up on me!! 

As a girl in school, I remember feeling awkward after a bad haircut (read super short) n yet told myself how it would grow back.. 

I’ve actually cut my hair short so many times in my life, just for that thrill of telling myself, it’s okay!! 

It’s worth it to experiment rather than play safe!

It’s worth it to have lost my likeability for some be*ability..

I know I’m still that girl! Id like to think that I care rarely about what people think of me. Very few get me!! N times when I try to convince people why I do what I do, I seem insane..

It’s not possible for this world to get me!! Not in a sad way.. but a super positive way.. 

every one is busy figuring their path! Some are trying to work out a likeable path, some the be*able.. 

n it’s not possible for everyone to get me! Cuz their work is to get them self..

I get me!! N thats enough..

Even when the world wants to know if I completed that course I was pursuing (yes! I did!) n what I achieved after finishing it (nothing to be precise in your words) 

What I got??? 

I got the strength to be this crazy girl (not woman), who desires to be a jack of all trades, cuz one trade for one life seems boring..

I wanna paint, I wanna sing, I wanna play with my son, I wanna wear dungrees, I wanna teach others how easy painting is, I wanna be a super coach who allows others to BE rather than BE LIKED.. 

I wanna ace at insuring people’s lives with life insurance, I wanna travel the world, I wanna trust this path..

I wanna be in ever connection with my highest self..

I wanna be Shraddha! I wanna be Aryaa 

🙂

Shraddha makes mistakes, n Aryaa accepts them.. 

Shraddha feels insecure, feels less confident! Aryaa holds her hand, tells her it’s okay! 


Who am I? 

I am both! I feel insecure at the slight drop of a hat, just as easily I feel strong n forgiving!!

The more I reach out to my loving self, the one that lets me look silly, the one that lets me take ‘too high the risks’… the more I allow, the more I feel love towards others..

N at no point am I totally one hundred percent of either!! I am always this eclectic mix of proportions, of this girl I used to be n the girl I am becoming..

N I am in love with who she is becoming..

Fierce in her commitment to choose this weird multi passionate, multi career life.. 

it’s people’s work to tell u,that ure a fool to believe that u could be successful at multiple businesses when ure not even breaking even at one.. 

it’s your work to keep your alignment, n keep choosing this fine tuned, accurately curated life for yourself, irrespective of the flawed measurement of success..

Cuz in the end, you get to say ‘this is exactly how I wanted it to be’

~ love

Thank you!


If I have ever crossed paths with you, virtually or may be in real life,

I owe you a thank you 🎁

If you have ever been, even the faintest reason behind my smiles, while I was reading something you posted on fb,or said to me in person,

I owe you a thank you🎁

If you have ever given me courage, when I needed it the most, or maybe when I didn’t, or spoken words of wisdom with a pure intention in your heart,

I owe you a thank you🎁

If you have ever wished well for me, in my failure or my success, in my illness or my wellness, in my lows or highs 

I owe you a thank you🎁

If you have ever been my friend,someone I’ve lost touch with, or a fb friend or virtual or a good one, who has made life lighter and more joyful, 

I owe you a thank you🎁

If you’ve been worried about me, or my progress or the perceived lack of it, with well intentions at heart,

I owe you a thank you🎁

If you’re my family, that has lost touch with me in these fast times, n remember me for good reasons (n not cuz I was a cranky girl 😍) with joy in your heart,

I’m already thankful for you🎁

If I have ever angered you, or been a cause of stress (my amma 😘) , have made it tough for you to accept me cuz I’m weirdness personified (aks) , made you question the status quo , 

I owe you a thank you🎁

If you have even faintly heard or thought or spoken of me, with well intentions 

I owe you a thank you🎁

To everyone who I’ve seen, met, heard, spoken to, shared great times with, had tough times with, 

Thank you🎁

If not for that lady in the train, who fought daily, I wouldn’t have asked for peace

If not for my beautiful job, that didn’t fit me, I wouldn’t have searched for my right fit

If not for all the difficulties and hardships in this world, I wouldn’t have asked for ease n effortlessness

If not for the frustration these times call for, I wouldn’t have demanded contentment 

Thank you my beautiful world 🎁

Today, I accept you with an open loving heart, and let you weave your magic over me..

Cuz who I was yesterday is a forgotten tale

N who I am becoming is the real game 🎁

Thank you!
