NOT YET A WOMAN

*Found this piece of work in a very old diary*

In the transitional stage of growing up from a girl to a woman,

I am still struggling to get my very own moment.

What is this deep unfathomed sea of emotion in me?

I dive in deep in search of the depth of the deeper meaning in me.

The rules and customs have chained my feet to the ground,

I wait for the stance to make myself proud.

I vow to endure the pain with grace,

Someday I want my light to beckon and ace.

I vow to soar the sky not cry,

I vow to spread my wings not sigh.

Some days I try to accelerate my pace, to get over this phase.

Some days I burn like a firefly with passion,

Rest days I dwell into an unknown state of compassion.

In the on-going process of self acceptance,

I am trying to understand this emerging absence.

Some days I wonder what am I destined to be?

Some days i wonder what the fate has in store for me.

In the transition from going yo from a girl to a woman,

I want to explore, grow, reach the highest peak and be human.

If-

A truly inspiring poem by Rudyard Kipling titled “If”.

If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS-2

“It is a happiness to wonder; it is a happiness to dream.” – Edgar Allan poe

See good in everything, being happy does not mean you have become perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections. Positive thinking evokes more energy, more initiative and more happiness. The first ingredient to happiness is to avoid any kind of negativity related to past, present or future. To be happy, you must be your own sunshine. Happiness is a conscious choice. Happiness can even be found in the most darkest of times, It all depends on your outlook. Wake up every morning with a great desire to live joyfully. Never let the sadness of your past and fear of your future ruin your present. Live in the moment, live life to the fullest. Some pursue happiness others create it. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts. Your mind is a garden, decorate it. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. Rejoice! 🙂

RISE AND SHINE

“you can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one.

Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of it’s

own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to the miracle.”

-Paulo Coelho

 

Everyday is a new beginning and chance to start afresh. See the bright opportunity in each new day. Everyday is a blessing, a new life, a new hope, new challenge and new accomplishments. What appears to be the end may really be a new beginning. Do not let anything weigh you down and crush you, instead place them under your feet and use it as a platform to view and broaden your horizons. So rise and shine! No negotiations. A fantastic day is waiting for you.
