My saving grace: being OKAY!!


I’ve learned this lesson several tens of times, and yet when I’m struggling with any kinda negative emotion, I forget to turn to it.

We have been raised to escape from our emotions, and taught that it’s not right to feel anger or disappointment or whatever it is that others think isn’t desired..

I myself feel weird when my son feels guilty of expressing his disappointment. He openly speaks it! He expresses it by crying out loud. N I’m getting used to being okay with that..it’s tough n yet I’m learning..

It’s okay to feel anger! The minute we let it pass, it’s gone!! Struggling with it makes it stay! 

I intend to choose the ‘being okay with any negative emotion’ part.. It makes life super easy..

Violet or Red?

I’ve been super eager to paint this piece titled ‘the artist’s dilemma’

Violet or Red?

Violet – colour of the crown chakra ..

the chakra that’s located a lil above our head, signifies our connection with source / god/ our highest self

Also, every artist who enjoys art has a strong (Violet) crown chakra.

Red – colour of the root chakra

The chakra that’s located at our tail bone, signifies our connection with earth

This chakra signifies stability..in short, the material aspect of our life.

It’s strange, Violet colour is composed of Red!!

So what’s your pick??

The Gift

It appears as if I’ve failed
Cuz all the expected outcomes 
haven’t turned up…yet

It appears as if I’ve failed 
Cuz my ‘out dreamt’ plans
have not reached fruition ….yet

It appears as if I’ve failed
Cuz in my own capacity
frankly ..I cannot make ends meet

It appears as if I’ve failed 
Cuz my financial independence is out there
somewhere…lost in the woods

And yet I rise to this failure
That in disguise is a blessing
I own you, my so called failure.. with pride

I claim you mine cuz in reality
I’ve spent more than I’ve earned
N I’ve dreamt more than I can afford

I blissfully toast to this struggle
Cuz in reality its brought me closer n closer…
to a life I’ve deeply yearned to live

I’m drenched in gratitude n
I thank my choices way beyond measure
even if they have torn me to pieces

You dear FAILURE are my priceless gift!
I recognize and appreciate you❤️
stay with me as long as you wish

Cuz all along this ‘failed’ road, I’ve grown wings
that seem to be invisible..yet growing strong
they’re huge I can tell

and its just a matter of time
till they suddenly turn visible
and il be flying high 😍 out in the sky
