Our heart has a strange way on us. It has immense power…because everything we feel comes from it. It can give us wonderful feelings where everything is so happy and life just goes like it should. Things seem to work so well and everything falls into place! It is perfect. While it has ways of making us happy, there are times when it just flips. Like one moment it was something and now an entirely different being! You were so happy and then you don’t know what takes you down. It is so very mysterious and fascinating! Yes, human emotions are complex!
‘Follow your heart’ is a phrase that is easier said than done. You realize the seriousness of it when you are stuck in a situation where your heart tells you something but the mind states otherwise. It is like a tug of war inside you. Heart flips, things change and shit happens! (No matter you want it or not, the heart wants what is wants!) You know how you feel and your heart knows that it is true but what do you do when, the hearts verdict is not the best thing to do? We have several other lives that are weaved around us and all our decisions leave an impact on them. What do you do when you realize your responsibility towards them? Either you follow your heart and live with the guilt, the rest of your life or you bury what you feel, inside and compromise with the situation. Either way you suffer. Why is it necessary to pay a price for what I feel? Some questions have no answers I guess.


Life does not come with a user’s manual, there are no rules. Something that seems right to me may not be the right thing from your perspective. It is full of hindrances but then there is magic too! There is not a perfect way to live your life…you just need to discover what works the best for you. We are flawed at saying that one should always follow his heart, when we have no idea what price one would have to pay for it and the same goes for following your mind. Decisions are hard to make and I guess that is okay. Nobody promised that it was going to be easy! Whatever it is….and whichever way it goes, it is worth living. Make sure you capture the true essence of life!

Miles Apart But Never At Heart!

We often tend to feel that we are most attached to the people we spend majority of our time with (by choice of course). That is an easy assumption to make. We live and breathe around them…eat and sing around them, they are the ones we interact with, the most. They know so so much about us! They are the help within our hands reach then be it any sort of problem we are going through. So very true!
But we cannot deny the fact that exceptions exist. The same goes for our relationships. We have friends and family, people we live with and they are closer than ever. But then there are certain people, we do not get to see on an everyday basis, they may not even cross our mind while we work our way through the day and we may meet or talk to them after what we call an eternity. Still these gaps do not seem to hamper our relationship with them. It appears like magic to me! I do not talk to them or share things with them daily nor do I just get home and blabber about how hard the day was or how cute that guy on the bus stop was.  They are not a part of my routine, yet somehow they manage to secure their place in my busy life. I have a handful of such people in my life. With some I have had the pleasure of spending a lot of time in the past and that is what concretes my bond with them while there are some others I have never spent much time with yet we swing along….just like that! We talk on the phone after five months and it is like nothing has changed at all. The gap just seems to vanish in a poof as soon as I hear their voices. I see them after years and we get along just like that, there is so much to talk about that I almost forget to breathe!(sigh)


I have come to realize that ‘Time’ and ‘Distance’ are not factors as important as I thought they were when it comes to our relationships. It does not matter who my oldest friend is or who is the one I spend most of my time with. It is the bond that matters. I may have known some for years yet they do not mean as much as a friend, who I met a few months ago. It is all about who has earned a place in my heart and made a little home there itself. We meet so many people yet there are just a few we wish to keep by our side. We know, we may not see them every day but it is that silent little voice in our hearts…that knows that they are always there! Cause some bonds are forever! ❤

Not Afraid Of The Dark

As I live through each day I come to realize more and more that life is all about those ‘simple things’.  A smile, a genuine compliment, a hug….It is all of this that makes breathing worth it in this difficult world! The other day we were at the Futala Lake waiting for a parcel to be delivered. It was all noisy around….people chatting, eating and much more. It was that very moment I stole a glance at the scenery behind all the chaos and honestly I don’t have words for the feeling it left me with. It made my day. The sky was inked in blue black with all the tiny twinkling stars scattered over it…so many of them and midst them was a giant disc glittering in silver white, the glow of it was soothing and composing. Beneath the dark and mysterious sky was a calm lake. As I looked at it, I wondered about what its depths held and I fathomed out that it was no less mysterious than the sky. Both had their own secrets. It was just that they had different shelters for those secrets. The glow of the moon made a beautiful impression on the water…gently moving and creating patterns. Darkness is not something to be afraid of! It appears frightful from a distance. But once we move closer, we begin to discover the hidden beauty. Those who close their eyes to darkness never recognize the beauty in its depths.


Life so works the same way! J
