Parents being parents

When we’re kids and our parents go away to tend to their work, we cry for their undivided attention, and they feel happy that we crave for them

And when we go far from them in our youth, they happily wave us goodbye and then cry when alone

Parents being parents
And, kids being kids

Happiness one time
And, sadness the other

How times change?
We never know
They never show
That is how it is
Life goes on…

P.S.: Lately, I feel that I have not been my best self. But, I am reading good books and loving everything about life. Which book are you reading? I am reading Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. You can download the PDF. I love it. No new songs. This is a chance to share new songs too 😀

One of the many mothers who cry

Today was the last of the 25 days I spent at home
Because of my father’s health
And I had to leave 12 hours early to catch my flight
Because I had to collect some hospital documents
And it is tragic that you can’t spend extra time with your mother
We were making thepla together this morning
So that I can eat them at the airport whenever hungry
And the fan of the kitchen was not switched on
I saw a drop of sweat dancing on the tip of my mother’s nose
And I told her to switch on the fan
And then I realized that she had more tears than sweat on her face
And her eyes were all red
And she was trying to hold on to her tears
And I felt like the stupidest son ever
But this is how goodbyes are
And then we all have to part ways
Sooner or later

I wish I could make it better and easier for her and others, but, sadly I cannot.

Can you even smile?

XFINITE

Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.―Dyer 

xfinite_sociology_can you even smile

Look at the world. Tell me what you see.

You see billionaires. You see celebrities. You see entrepreneurs. You see success. You see the money. You see cool cars. You see luxury. You see fame. You see trends. You see confidence. You see failure.

Here’s what you don’t see.

You don’t see happiness. You don’t see nature. You don’t see freedom. You don’t see peace. You don’t see balance. You don’t see fulfillment. You don’t see the passion. You don’t see love. You don’t see memories. You don’t see you.

All it takes is a Peek-A-Boo before the baby starts laughing. Their laughter is so pure without restraint, hesitation, or fear of being judged. There is no self-control, discipline, or restriction. They laugh when they are happy, and cry when they are sad. They are…

Unrealistic dreams & realistic goals

Yo!

‘I will go to the moon’ & ‘I will go to the moon tomorrow’ has a lot of difference. And the word is ‘tomorrow’.

The former represents a far-away realistic dream because I can achieve it(if I aspire for it) and the later represents an unrealistic dream because I don’t have the proper academics or the links to go to the moon tomorrow 😋

So, the time frame is a major factor for categorizing our dreams as realistic or unrealistic.

So, knowingly or unknowingly, we all have broken our dreams and goals into long-term dreams and short-term goals.

In this case, ‘going to the moon’ can be a long-term dream and the realistic short-term goals can include getting proper education and working as an astronaut to achieve it. Now, at present, I don’t have any.

And hence, if I dream of ‘going to the moon tomorrow’, I hope for all of to agree, that it kind of seems unrealistic.

So where am I heading to?
We all have dreams of getting better jobs, getting more salary, traveling more, being more jovial, and many more.

So, we can safely think of the above list as UNREALISTIC DREAMS because these are long-term goals(even if the duration of long-term is as less as 1 week) 😋

So, to achieve any of the above, we have to prepare, we have to make some realistic short-term goals like studying consistently (for a better job), or finalizing a destination for the next trip and with whom would we love to go there(for more traveling).

Why I am thinking of this approach is because Maths told me so. I cannot go from 1 to 10 by not going through 2,3,4,…,9 😉 so as per me, the unrealistic dream is 10, and I am standing at 1, and the realistic goals are each of 2,3,…,9 😎

And following this logic of long-term dreams and short-term goals, before you know, you’ll be standing there at 9 and taking a deep breath and in slow motion step on 10 with a feeling of a champion! 😍

So, are you ready to become a champion? This is the chance.

P.S.: A humble request is to please read as many books as possible and also each person has different ways of achieving their dreams and if your method is simpler and better than this, please feel free to let me know.

Being Prepared

Sreedom of Expression

rose

It is the beginning of a new month.And Augusts are always special. Often, there are an umpteen number of holidays and festivals lined up in August – which would naturally mean fun time with family. August Is a very special month for me too. Both my father-in-law and husband have their birthdays in August and our marriage anniversary is in August too. Incidentally my grandparents too were married in August. Hence, the month had always been special for me.My son having completed his board exams this year, my husband and I had planned for a gala wedding anniversary this year. But what we hadn’t planned for was a future without one of us. So, here I am – facing the August rain – alone!

Death, sickness and separation isn’t a pleasant thing to talk about but standing at this juncture I’ve realized that it is wiser to look at the…

What life with a football admirer gives you!

Nimz revealed

So, After almost an year I am writing again.

World Cup hangover is still ON. Congratulations France and Well done Croatia. Waiting for the next four years to pass! So that I can watch the game with our little champ! 🙂

maxresdefault

Why not a fan and an admirer. Both are different. Football fan; anyone can be a fan. Anyone can support it and go on with a team. But admirer; its one who loves the game, loves the passes, praises the beauty and scolds the faults, one who knows the match to the core. Who supports a team but loves everyone else. 🙂

So what getting married to a football admirer gives you?

As he is the extreme admirer of the wonderful game football he will be a person who takes everything in a spirit. As a game he believes life doesn’t gives you anything granted, you have to work hard…

The difference in Pizza toppings

Yo! How are you?

You like pizza? You love pizza? Pizza is love ❤️

So ever notice that the base/size of the pizza is the same and based on the different toppings, the price of the pizza varies. This is not something new. It’s an old theory.

Just like the vessel and the contents in it. Usually, we fall for the vessel but the content is important. Based on the best toppings, the price is more. Similarly, based on the pure and positive content of our thoughts, satisfaction in life is more.

So, what you waiting for? Go and hog your favorite pizza but remember to add good, positive, creative, classy content in your thoughts too.

Bbye for now! Enjoy the fooking weekend 😎

P.S.: This post’s song is Connection by One Republic and what are your plans for the weekend? New videos coming soon in the YouTube channel so do check it out @ Darshith Badiyani. Pic credits to taste.com.au
