The real one..

Your lowest days don’t define you,
Do not take them too seriously..

They won’t last too long,
If only you let them pass by like a breeze..

They hit you in the face
With stuff you dislike the most..

They give you feelers, your lowest days,
Of the disconnection..

It’s a call to be alert, and change course
Thought by thought

Steering towards
that which lights you up..

The lowest of days are nothing more
than a sign,
a reminder to look at something nice..

Evidence that we’re surely looking in the wrong places,
Proof of our disconnection,
which is nothing more than a nudge

To look at something beautiful
To smell something lighter
To feel a little different

Look out the window, the real one,
You find on the real walls of your home..

Not the ones on your screen, or Facebook..

Listen to the cooing of the birds
Or the rattling of the cars, making their way through a city full of traffic
That’s some will power..

Look at the sunshine .. yeah!!
Hits us hard, especially in Mumbai in the scorching summers

Feel the changing times, and the ease they bring along…

How EASY!!!

At fingertips are options of a meal,
a party or even a vacation

Sometimes even an alternate life set up in a distant location

Life indeed has become easy
And bright!!!

Love is around, all the time!!
If not around you, maybe just around the corner

And if you still can’t find it,

Be certain!!!

You’re looking in the wrong places..

Just change the view, tilt your head
Or if not..
Look out the window, the real one..

Bare Maximum


I’ve scraped through the emptiness,
Till I’ve found no more..

My meager rainbow, is visible
Only in the darkness

For it has only two colours to offer
The leap of faith, and surrender

Because I’ve scraped through the emptiness 
till I’ve found no more

Even though dots emerge
They spell of loud drum beats

Victory finally emerges

Cuz I’ve scraped through the emptiness 
And I’ve found no more!!!

Letting yourselves down? No chance!! Here’s 3 reasons why :-)

There is no such thing as letting oneself down! Why? Here are 3 straight reasons:

1. The picture in your mind, of how things should be is just a picture. It’s not a reading from the future for you to rate the present as ‘really bad!!’ If you knew the future, which said at age 25 you’d own a Ferrari, and you’re 25, still depending on local transport- okay you goofed up dude. But NO! You don’t know the future so relax

2. If you always performed above expectation, your life would be BORING!! What kinda growth are you expecting if you’re always satisfied with yourself? Sometimes, not getting what we want leads us to jumping higher, leads us to better stuff! So if you’re not happy with the outcomes, keep doing your best.

3. You chose to be who you now are, exactly as you now are! 

This is who you most wanted to be. So you can’t be goofing things up, even if they appear that way. There’s a growth trajectory you’re following because of all the pleasant and unpleasant situations you’re coming across. If you’d eliminate some of the unpleasant situations, I’m afraid your growth trajectory goes for a toss!

  
We deserve our own love the most! I feel, getting past the hurt caused by another person is easier as compared to getting past the hurt we cause for ourselves. All the negative self talk only goes to destroy our self esteem.

We are beautiful souls, totally worthy of all the love in this world. A negative outcome is the last thing to prompt us to feel that we let ourselves down!!

There is no such thing like that!! Everything is happening just as we consciously chose it to. Love yourselves and keep going!!

Love

Real life is outside folks!!!

We find these illustrations funnily true yet we’re light years away from realising how this addiction is going to get to us and our future generation! We’re intelligent , we know this addiction takes us nowhere! Yet we’re so addicted that we are unable to devise our escape plans..

 

Here are some tips for an awesome escape plan!

– Spend some time (as little as 5 mins) every day consciously keeping away from your phone/ tabs

– Go outdoors. Enjoy the rain. Sleep on the lawn, see the open blue sky! Let the colors of the flowers fill your eyes.

– Breathe!! Yeah simply breathe when you’re in fresh air, and pay attention to how shallow or deep your breath is! Yes – this is the oxygen that our body needs, that we are totally unaware of. Just be present to that oxygen you’re breathing in

– Connect with your friends / family members in ways other than your phone. Watch a movie together at home, visit a friend, say hi to your neighbors, plan a weekend get away where there isn’t any reception /network 😉

– Listen to those birds chirping outside. Can you see them? Can you distinguish the sounds from one another?

– Drink water! Yeah! Pay a visit to that bottle of water and finish it at least half way down.

– Move!! Dance, run, brisk walk. Whatever allows you to move. Sitting in one place with that phone is making us lazier by the minute. So even as you walk towards your bosses cabin, move faster.. Use the stairs instead of the lift. At home, show some energy as you walk towards the door when the bell rings.

– Be present! In the shower, pay attention to the fragrance of the soap/ shower gel you’re using! How does the cold / warm water feel? Does it relax you? Does it energise you? If all the time your thoughts are running in that head, you don’t even know if you shampood your hair or not!!

– When you’re outside, instead of looking into your phone, look at those smiles on peoples faces. If there are no smiles, try bringing some 🙂

Real life is outside folks. LIFE is outside. Whats in the phones is just a dull vibe, that is slowly getting on to us. And it’s time to dust that vibe aside!!!
