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! 🙂

LET’S LOVE LIFE TODAY

“I don’t think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.”- Anne Frank

Create a life that feels good on the inside not the one that look’s good on the outside.  Life is made of acts and omissions. If we do not give positive content to our life, it probably will not be good. Life is a journey and only you hold the map. Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass by, it is about dancing in the rain. This is your life, do what you love and do it often. It is never too late to do things differently. You are not given a good life or a bad life. You are given a life and it is up to you to make it good or bad. If you love life, life will love you back. The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts. Your new life starts today. Do not waste it trying to get back to what was taken away. Here’s hoping you live and love your life to the fullest.

F.E.A.R

“Fear is an idea-crippling, experience crushing, success stalling inhibitor inflicted only by yourself.”- Unknown

Fear is nothing but more than an obstacle that stands in the way of  your progress. In overcoming our fears we can move forward stronger and wiser within ourselves.Fear is not real. it is the product of thoughts that you create. Danger is very real, but fear is a choice. You blow your positive thoughts when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith. Stop letting fear rule your life. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. Replace the fear of unknown with positivity. People are disturbed not by things but the view by which they take them. You have two choices either to forget everything and run or face everything and rise. Remember, with every experience in which you look fear in the face, you gain inner strength and confidence. So spread your wings open your door and go after it. The opportunities are all yours.

WHY ME? TRY ME

“Smooth roads never make good drivers, clear skies never make good pilots, problem free life never make strong persons, So do no ask life WHY ME say TRY ME.”- Unknown

When life puts you in tough situations, do not say why me? Just say try me. Everything happens for a reason and a purpose with which it serves you. Today i want you to ask yourself this one question – why not you? You are not what happened to you. You are what you choose to become. We are quick to think others are deserving and they enjoy a better life. The truth is we are equally deserving. It is just about the perspective of how you see and manage things. Life will keep on teaching you lessons, have to desire to learn. Fear or losing hope is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. You have to go wholeheartedly into anything in order to achieve anything worth having. Today choose to awaken yourself with a new perspective of the way you see things in your life.

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

“I have lost someone whom i loved as a brother, as a lover, as a closest friend, as a remarkable human being. We have also lost one of the best damn actor we will ever see.”- Jack Lemon

No one heals themselves by wounding another. No matter what at least once in your life someone will hurt you, rip you into pieces and wont even bother to watch where the pieces land. Through the breakdown you will learn more about yourself, more about life. No matter what you will grow from it and conquer yourself. When someone hurts you, think of them as a sand paper. They may scratch and hurt but in the end, you will end up polished. The pain you have been feeling can not be compared to the joy that is coming your way. Life is too short to fight or to regret the past. Count your blessings and move out with your head held high. Let it serve you as an opportunity to be better than what you were before. Do not ask yourself why someone keeps hurting you. Ask yourself why you are allowing them to do so? You will be able to rebuilt yourself. Time in itself is a best healer. People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used. It only takes a few seconds to hurt someone, but it takes years to repair the damage. Cherish the hearts that love you. You never lose by loving, you lose by holding back. Life is short, so make it worthwhile. Do not spend your time grieving, just spend it with a smile.
