The unheard voice

Sometimes the nights are so silent that the silence within is heard loud. What is that silence? The voice which usually goes unheard. It’s realized only at the moments of hollowness and calmness. The two traits which may go together or may not. Hollowness which may be sinking you or the calmness which may be relaxing you. It’s difficult to assess but still an urge pushes towards it. 

I feel hollow. I feel lost. May be sunken, may be not. Everything is subjective. Some calm makes me happy, some calm makes me dizzy. There is a difference. The difference of perspective. The perspective which pushes me to highest highs and lowest lows. The lows and highs do not compromise. They take me for a hazzy ride. I’m happy, I’m not. I’m sad, I’m not. 
Do not know what it is. It is reflected in the mirror when I look into it. Sometimes I smile, sometimes I frown, sometimes I curse, sometimes I merry. But all I do at the end is accept. Acceptance of the reality, acceptance of the truth. Life moves on and so do we. Gradually and slowly we learn to live with it. 


The promise

“And I promise”. The words spoken with utmost honesty. The promises we keep, the promises we take. The promises which take us a step closer in any relation. A promise to be there forever, a promise to keep a secret. Promises are kept in a marriage to love each other forever, to be able to cherish the moments together. But still people depart. Promises break and new promises are made. What is the line which defines that a promise was kept, or was it broken? 

I have made promises and have broken them. But does that mean that I wanted to break them or it was just the need of the hour. Is breaking promises justified? We make promises indirectly at many times. A simple promise to call a friend and not doing so is a trivial thing but a promise has been broken. A loved one departs and a promise to be there forever is broken. Different situations but a common promise. Sometimes we choose to break it and sometimes it is broken. 

The entire story gets down to the fact that there is no discretionary explanation to the breaking of promises. They are sometimes just the phrases which are said and sometimes are abided by for the entire life. 

I promise and I promise to be there, 

I promise to be just and fair;

Promises will not be meant to be broken

They will be upheld to be frozen. 

The virtue of gratefulness 

Embrace the grace of the giver. Things do not matter, what matters is the joy within. Gratefulness is not by chance, it’s  a choice you make in life. Even a smile is what you can be grateful for. 

In the hustling bustling maddling crowds, we often forget to cherish the little moments in life. Moments which have driven us to contentment. 

I wonder and I wonder and I keep wondering. “What if I would have taken out sometime from  my life to be grateful for all the things I am cherishing in life. Rather than feeling muddled for what will happen further, what if I would have lived the present by feeling satisfied”. Small yet mind boggling.

Being grateful makes you pure, it becomes a source of the strength within you. It can become a way of life. Let the tiny seedlings of gratitude grow within you. Let them reap you to destiny. Be grateful for all the things you have in life, show gratitude to all the people who have been moulding and shaping your lives. Life is too short to be disowned. Live it beautifully. Be successful, but never leave your values behind. These tiny saplings should be nourished to make you a better person. A tree would degrade and so will our lives, but let not those virtues die with you. Let the world remember you for your gratitude, your virtues. They are the ones that made you. Lets give a chance to our inner self to bloom, let’s turn denial to acceptance. Let’s be grateful for all we have. The Journey would never stop, but gratitude can nurture you at every step making you feel content. 

Be grateful for all, be grateful to all. Let’s make the bonds stronger and build our relations, for they are the ones that define our lives.

Let gratitude be the way of life, let it take away the pain and strife. 

Life is too short for carrying the ill will , lets make a way for the happiness to seep in. 

Make gratitude your attitude, life will not always  find substitutes. 

Break the shells which have stopped you, be grateful and thankful, for that what will complete you.  

” A grateful mind is a great mind which eventually attracts to itself great things. – Plato”. 

Dear Zindagi!! 

Yet another year has rolled in. A new chapter will be added to all of our lives. Let’s embrace the new challenges which will come our way and let’s thank all the times “zindagi” has given us in the past few years. The roller coaster ride is ready to roll the reel of our lives.

Before stepping into a new you, let’s cherish the moments we have shared together.

Without you I would be lifeless, you exist therefore I am. I thank you for all you have given me. A mixed bag of surprises, which sometimes made me smile, sometimes made me sad, sometimes forced me to push my boundaries, but at the end, you were a mentor, which made me learn at every step of life. 

From being a toddler who has just stepped into you, to being a person who now has the capability to understand you, I can say that you have been a constant moderator for me. Thank you “dear zindagi“. 

There were times when I felt a strong disconnect with you. I felt antagonised to you. I wanted us to move together but you wanted me to be more strong, making me ready for the unseen, undesired. Your unconditional support moulded me to be me. A person with strong resilience, will power and a clear vision for life. Though the ups and downs cannot be done away with, I would want to accept them and move forward. I would still find the roads blurry, but with you by my side, I hope to reach the top of the ladder with lot more experience and love for you. 

You made me laugh, you made me cry, 

We walked together and prepared to try. 

Trying till we succeed, 

Trying always to take a lead. 

Thank you for the gestures which helped me hang on, 

You inspired me till the end, to keep moving on..
