Only If..

If I ever owned a stationary store,

I would be financially broke..

Cuz I’d end up using all the stash

My heart, on the other hand would overflow..

♥️

The colouring books would say ‘pick me, pick me’

And I would gladly oblige

the blank pages would pull me in,

It would be a store filled with all my ‘write’

♥️

All the coloured paper would party,

The paints and crayons making merry..

The canvasses playing Holi,

And me their queen, sitting jolly

♥️

Highlighters, stamps, punches of all shapes

Ribbons, glue and scissors

Is all I need to let out the dying artist,

That hides inside, rarely else appears

♥️

If I ever owned a stationary store

I’d let in all the kids, make merry

Take whatever your heart calls for

Let the artist out & remember, there’s no hurry

♥️

If only we let our children set the pace of life

Rather than us doing it for them

The world would be a merrier place

Ruled by hearts & Joy, not weekends

♥️

We all deserve our inner child

To be out and about, dominating us

It’s all peer pressure & a forced choice

That’s getting to most of us

♥️

I may not own a stationary store

And I thank god all the time..

Cuz my inner child is quite alive

And my teacher is none other than my child

♥️

Ps : still dreaming of owning that dream store where all of our childhood comes alive

Is it hobby time for you YET??

It’s strange, we don’t encourage our kids to pursue a hobby for life, as much as we pursue them to excel in school studies / in a particular sport.

A hobby is a very freeing activity!

One can’t call a sport, a ‘hobby’ if the parents are pressuring the kids to excel at it.

A hobby has a very light hearted, JOY centric feel to it, which is FREEing in many ways. It allows the individual to break free from whatever routine they are following.

It’s a gateway to a happy place, which makes it easy for the person to survive the routine..

A hobby can be a saviour!!

And if one pursues it regularly enough, one can easily excel at it!!

As parents, we can imbibe the culture of pursuing a hobby, in our kids. And the simplest way to do it???

Do it yourself first!!

Children follow our actions more than our words. If we be the example to them, they will surely follow!!

Not that the current generation needs hobbies. They are just too aware of what they like n dislike. They may not even go through the struggle of a routine..

Then for who is this post intended to???

Hahaha!! To us.

And if you’re reading this, know that you stumbled upon this write for a reason.

Your hobby hasn’t given up on you! It’s waiting for you, and will hold your hand tight if you just let it..

what say??

Is it hobby time yet???

~aryaa

PS: can’t thank my hobby of writing enough. It has been my saviour through all the lows of my life.

Blogging/ creatively writing/ journaling /doodling/ colouring, as long as there is a pen and a paper with me, il be in safe hands..

What about you??

Memories

Nostalgia is such an emotion!

I wonder if it takes us back in time or puts us right into our heart ♥️ through moments that took it away in the first place..

Throwbacks in reality bring us into the present.. by charting their ways to it..

A reminder of love filled moments..

A reminder that we have loads to be grateful about ..

Where does your heart go, when it goes down the memory lane??

The endless string of breakthroughs

I used to deeply believe, that breakthroughs are a magical point in time, crossing of which, changes life utterly n delightfully..

N I used to wait for my breakthrough!

I have felt it in my heart a million times as if I’m on this side of a breakthrough, certain and eagerly waiting for life to change..

N I’ve wondered why the breakthrough evades me, whenever I’m close..

Kinda realised today, it’s never one single point in time. Life has potential to get better, our every waking n sleeping minute..

It’s like a series of breakthroughs.. every next one better than the previous..

And the changes might be minuscule n yet when they pile up over a week or a month or a year or a decade, they’re just too big!!

All we got to do is notice them!! Notice how life is better today than yesterday..

We kinda get so harsh on ourselves at times, not realising no one is keeping our records..

it’s just us! We like to keep records of how successful we are…as if failures never taught anyone anything ..

Lol!!

Everything we face in life helps us get better!

The sadness, the grief, the loneliness or failure, losing important stuff , or sometimes our dear people, depression, our inability to believe in ourselves..

Everything leads us towards our true power!!

N simply knowing this, is a breakthrough!

It makes life worth living..

Worth looking forward to..

Each one of us has different purposes in life!

For some it’s their responsibility, for some it’s family, for some it’s ambition..

For kids.. the purpose of life is simply having fun and filling everyone with joy..

Really doesn’t matter..

What matters is in our own ways, all of us realising how beautiful life can get if we just allow it to be so..

It’s an endless string of breakthroughs really♥️

The victorious Inconsistency ♥️

What if you thought that consistency matters,

And I thought inconsistency does,

cuz I am changing constantly

❤️

I am changing every passing moment

My emotions are fine tuning my life,

And I am choosing every ‘well being’ emotion ..

❤️

What if you caught me,

when I was whining away

And you thought I was a whiner..

❤️

What if you caught me

When I gave you my word,

That meant well then, doesn’t hold ground now

Would you hold me responsible

For being irresponsible??

❤️

Cuz I am ever changing..

❤️

What if what mattered to me then,

Doesn’t matter to me now??

Would you hold me dead??

❤️

What if I was summoning an ever changing life through me,

That glorifies inconsistency ♥️

Would I find place in your good books??

❤️

What if I let myself flow, like a river

That starts in a country and ends in another,

Would you call me fickle??

❤️

What if I played big by playing it simple

And small,

would you call me mediocre??

❤️

I don’t care to be in business,

if business doesn’t include my life..

❤️

My life is my business..

It is my joy, it is my well being ..

❤️

I am minding my own business

By allowing life through

By letting it in,

letting all the labels aside

❤️

I am living my life

Inconsistently n yet….

It feels whole, it feels fun and full of life

♥️

I came here to personify inconsistency,

Cuz I am ever changing

Only growing more aligned

To ‘who I came here to be’

❤️

The perfect contradiction!

My latest art piece titled: the perfect contradiction

My art works take me to such deep levels of understanding, that every piece leaves me amazed and awestruck.

This one is created for an artist, who is into performing arts: the making of movies/ short films, is into acting and is totally a gifted photographer..

This painting took me the longest and the shortest time for creation..It is just how I’d imagined it to be and yet totally different from what I’d expected..

It is layered and yet ‘crystal clear’y transparent..

It has been a ‘work in progress’ for the longest time, and yet it took about ten minutes for me to finish it❤️🎁

How can there be so many contradictions, n yet life is perfect????

It’s so because it just is.

The fantabulous St(He)art❤️


Who would have imagined,

A messy desk, a tiny studio with all types of canvasses (undone ones, blank ones and magnificent ones) , a loud voice (and a huge canvas) and a message to express : an artist’s life is done!! 

My life begins here 🙂 Ive finally got a handle on my life purpose, and I’m loving the variety of it all.

A civil engineer, then a construction manager (lol is that me 😂) escapist who fled to HR cuz it seemed kinda sane, n then a training deputy manager who fled from a full time job cuz it seemed kinda sane, n then an internationally certified Passion Coach who fled away from coaching (cuz you know it seemed kinda sane) 

..only to land into being an Energy Artist cuz this time it felt like coming home..n it was this feeling of being away from home, that didn’t let me be a good engineer or a coach or a trainer or anything…

It’s been only 12 years since I finished Engineering and am glad I finally have my career on track ❤️

And this Energy Artist is out to conquer this world!! Hmmmm…sorry already done that ❤️

I figured that if I really desired to change the lives of all the beautiful people on this awesome planet, it would be simpler to change mine…

Cuz then automatically people would be drawn to me, cuz I have carved a path for myself where my life is exactly the way I desire it to be

N so!!! Here I am❤️

Starting a brand new career that lets me be an artist, a singer, a mom, a blogger, a writer, a traveller, a client to some of the most rocking coaches of this world 😍 a passionate coach who supports people in bringing back this feeling of finally coming home to life❤️

But the most important part is I love being ME❤️

A feeling I’d never experienced since I graduated as an engineer …

N thank god for the so called “wrong” choices, I finally have a life I super love almost all of the time..

Grateful and high after completing an art piece [the st(he)art]

The gift 🎁 

When your heart calls out to you, to follow a trail that you have no clue about,believe me, you’re about to be showered with the gift of pure love ..

Not from outside you but from within!!

When you dig your hands into sand making sand castles, or play in the rain, or look at a pet n know the emotion deeply beyond words, it’s your own being showering you with pure love!!

When you talk to plants n flowers n tune into their energy, or smile at a stranger, or look at sunshine, you will know this immense feeling of love shining from within!!

If you have ever immersed yourself into any kind of art, or music or dance or anything close to it, you will know this feeling!!

It’s the gift of life! The gift of being aligned to your inner being who never has an emotion (forget thoughts or words) against you!!

~aryaa 

A New Life Every Year!!!

This is YOUR n only YOUR life. You get to play with it!!

Like you do when you go to a restaurant, don’t like the menu, move out n go to another restaurant.. Then you order something, ‘nahhh’ ..change your order n finally eat something you’ve never intended to in the real place..

Yeah life is here to thrill you!!

if you already know what you wanna achieve in this lifetime, GREAT!!!

If you don’t know, and you’re really hungry to know : even better!!!!!

And if your ideas keep changing, the world may say you’re a nut case…but believe me, you’re in the best of best spaces where you just want more out of life..

N that’s the gift this life offers..

Pasta..nah.. Sizzling brownie..nah.. Maybe an ice tea..
Nah.. Hmmm Nachos!!!! Yeah okay Nachos!!!

N the world expects you to eat nachos every time you’re hungry!!!!

Mad or what????

To be born in this life, n want the same thing again n again!!!

No way!!! We want more…. 

I wanna write more books , yes…even before writing one book, I wanna write 16 books!!

N I wanna create more energy art, and teach the world how to create it!! Even before reaching out to hundred people, I wanna reach out to this whole world..

N I want a new set of dreams every year!!!

Yeah may be next year after writing 7 books, I may dump writing n become a world traveller..

Imagined that??? Wow!!!! A new life every year!!! 


And this image above, is one (largest part) of the seven parts of my vision board!!!

Why not??? 

My son teaches me this lesson, cuz every single moment he wants to do some thing new..

N before the world can label him as ‘a big dreamer’, ‘indecisive’, ‘too small’ I’m gonna support him by following him..by teaching him, that he is here with answers to every question I have ever asked..

I do not teach him.. I only learn..

Joy vs Excellence

About children, the most fantabulous aspect is that they’re totally aligned with their joy..

Bubbles, butterflies, jumping in the muddy puddle.. they do stuff cuz they derive joy out of it ..

My son pretends to play a variety of instruments, none with an intention of mastering the knowledge 🙂 lol

He does it because he feels joyful as his hands beat the tabla or he pretends to play the fake flute..

He loves the idea of it!!

We as kids knew it! What happened then?

We grew up? The faulty adults pushed us into believing we wouldn’t be good enough till we excelled at it??

Complete rubbish!!

Look at prodigys or famous people who have mastered art without learning it!! They simply followed their joy, with a leap of faith that appeared as if they were ‘gifted’..

Of course they were gifted in their relentless belief of the joy they pursued, without an iota of doubt!! N yes, that does make them gifted as compared to the ones who modified themselves to be un’gifted’

When we pursue our joys with doubts, they seem to block the flow of our gifts!!

Pursue the joy simply n forget about everything else!! There, we are all masters ♥️
