I had started to count kindness on my fingers. If you were like me, you barely got enough of it to fill in one hand, but I took what I could; I still do. I had learnt to lick it in scraps, taking whatever I could and storing it in a jar made of hope and I took a bit more out of it than I should have every time I was told I wasn’t enough. Which was every day.
We live for the people around us. If we are scared of death, it is only in part because of the pain, the rest is a mind-numbing fear of losing what we know, who we know. There is family, there are friends. But sometimes, we find that relationships form in the most unlikely of places. It might be a negative one, no matter. Only, we might never fully comprehend the depth of it till we face a void that cannot be filled, till death and damnation. Can hate cause a wistfulness as potent as love?
Silence is a feel-good way to spend some time when you are upset, but not until you start suppressing your agonies and hardships. This is when you become a stoic. You think a million times, overthink and rethink before you say something. And by the time it starts choking you, you’d regret not having expressed it earlier.
It’s the little things that bother you to an extent nothing else does. It’s the little feelings that are hard to decipher and hard to tame. It’s difficult to get people to understand you, sometimes it’s difficult to understand yourself. But writing them down can make your heart feel a little lighter.
Loud noises of the Gypsy Jeeps were echoing in every alleyway. Alleyways stuffed with people as far as the eye could see. While most of them were rushing to listen to The Man in White speak, a few seemed to be making their way out of the crowd, almost as if they were looking for something precious that they had just lost. Pandemonium. This was the only possible way to describe the night, right in the middle of which was a young girl.
The whole concept of gratitude is omnipresent. It is vast. It is relieving. Here is a quick guide on how you can relinquish your old habits and reinforce the relationship, good grades, the new hobby, the new job you always craved for with the help of gratitude and affirmations.🪄
“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is yesterday and the other is tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.”
~ Dalai Lama
We were thin glass, you and I – fragile yet iridescent. This is the only thread of similarity running between us. Running away was easier, holding your heart in mine and listening to your heart beat could never be easy.
There’s joy and ecstasy, and there’s heart wrenching sorrow. New bonds are formed, and sometimes we drift apart. You can’t love without loss. But in the end, the memories and warmth are worth the pain. So, today, Let’s Love! Happy Family Day!
