Life as we know it

“Life is how we see it.” Some similar quote may have been said by someone famous & wise, but this is what I have realized lately about life. Few of you may agree to it & most of you may not. I don’t hold grudges against you, just chill ๐Ÿ˜€

Why I reached this conclusion? I have been a part of some devastating life changing incidents lately. Those have let me reach to the above statement.

I have a 6-month married cousin, who is just 1-year elder to me & has been my partner-in-crime since childhood days. He suffered a minor heart stroke 2 weeks back & had to be admitted to a hospital. Doctor said it was all normal & he has to cut out eating fast food & fried food of outside. The best way to live for him without further similar problems is NOT to eat anything spicy outside.

This kept me thinking. At such a tender age(20s’), restrictions have started to grow its root in his life. But then there’s no other way for him.

I had another cousin, yes, I know I wrote HAD because she expired some days back. She was a teenager and this mishap happened because she had some sugar related health issues. That news came as a shock. I couldn’t take her out of my mind. She’s the one who introduced me to this wonderful song, Amnesia(one among the many). She made me love One Direction. She’s left a void, no doubt.

Both the incidents happened within 2 days and they were quite a setback. Life is sensitive. Life is never in our control. We are always under the obligation that life will vanish into thin air and never be found. We, as humans, are helpless creatures.

Why did I mention this here? Because I know we all have trouble, shortcomings, & our own set of problems in life. We have tension of job & family & studies. But we have to make sure that it don’t get into our brain. The troubles should me thought of as a guest visitor in our home & not a permanent resident. If you have the power, don’t open your doors to trouble, but then they find their way inside somehow.

I have problems too. I have job-related tension and other stuff but then after going through the above 2 incidents, I realized, thinking & over thinking won’t help me in any way. The only thing that will help me is THOUGHTFUL ACTION.

I have to do what I love. I don’t have to invest a single second thinking about the things that drain me from within. If I don’t like someone, l will leave them. If I don’t like my job, I will leave it. If I love someone, I will let them know how much they mean to me. Because, in the end, nothing will count except how I felt myself & how I made others feel. So, feel positive things & try to spread this inner positive feeling to others. We all need it. Sharing is the best way of communication.

P.S.: I want to say, “I am back, bitches!” but I can’t ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will start blogging again soon(gimme some weeks) and today’s song pick is Lush life by Zara Larrson. I will also do the remaining videos of AtoZ challenge but I am occupied as of now so they will be coming in 2-3 months time ๐Ÿ˜‰

I WAS GIVEN THE TOPIC: โ€œREFLECTIONโ€

Stressed

Bumped

Nothing coming to mind

Not regarding the topic given

Or any othet topic

And this is what I wanted

Numnbess in my mind

STOP!!

Blank

Not even a single hiss

Dark Silence

Go home

Change in environment

Can I ever show my true face

How I feel at a moment??

In office, no I cant show frustration

At home, no I cant show tension

All I gotta do is

Show a good smiling face

Which really looks good

And is appreciated by others

But do I appreciate it?

Isnt there no onw

Who can read what my eyes reflect?

I have heard

that eyes are the window to our Soul

So somebody or anybody can see

the reflection of my

Scared fearful soul

But why cant they see?

I ask myself,

Then this Dark Silence

comes & whispers to me

That becasue they are also

Waiting for someone to

See the reflection

Of their haunting soul

And then I understand

That Someone undersntads you

IFF you try to understand them

And so this reflection

Can be understood

If the other person

Really wants to know

The happenings of your life..

Now your topic: โ€œLife without WordPressโ€

I hope you enjoy completing this challenge, as I did. Good day!

It’s her wish to visit Taj..

Memories had entangled me then
I was busy wasting my precious time
On these unnecessary things
Jumbled up in the tensions of Work
Life, it’s ups & downs
Family, friends and buses and bikes
And all the daily chores.

There was crowd everywhere around me
I was surrounded by them
But there I was all alone
Lost, confused and helpless
Then I sat down at the stairs of a building there
And suddenly my eyes fell on a bird
That had come and sat there beside me
She was happy I can tell
As she was playing with its food
Hopping on that stair
Breezing away with the wind and then returning back
Going from one branch to the other of the banyan tree on the roadside
It seemed as if She was from some other place
May be a neighbouring country
I was left staring at her for hours
Staring at her freedom, at her happiness,
at her sincerity, at her way of life
Staring at her for long
Helped me forget my tensions
My chaotic life, my unmindful works
My life filled with hassles
I realized that she was talking to me
With her actions
As if sharing her stories
Her experiences and wishes
She was happy to be here
And She had heard a lot about the beauty of Taj Mahal
And asked me If I can accompany her
and show her The Symbol of Love, The Taj
So that when she goes back to her home
She will take back the beauty of Taj
and also the memories of the time spent with me
That she can cherish all her life..
