April May !!

April – noun – the fourth month of the year, in the northern hemisphere usually considered the second month of spring(as per the oxford dictionary)

Spring is the time of the year that usually starts in the middle of March for most of the world but April seems to be the exordium to the promised rebirth taking place in the coming months.I am sure most of my readers are sure confused about the title – what does that even mean? Has the blogger lost her calm at home in quarantine? Has she not had enough sleep or the caffeine has probably not kicked in yet.There are so many possibilities in the brain and that in the mind of the reader,right? But hang in there and sit tight because i may have kept you pondering by the end of this article about a lot of wonderful possibilities why April May.

They came on one of April’s most brilliant days–a day as sparkling as a newly-washed lemon…a day when even the shadows were a melange of blue and orange and jade, like the shadows that poured from the tipsy brush of Monet.” – Beverley Nichols

In times like these and the constant lockdowns every now and then there sure are odds where we as humans think about the endless possibilities spending April in the midst of really amazing destinations,vacations,solo trips,exploring food places,working out in gyms,outdoor games,partying,bar hopping,concerts,theatres,movies,operas and a lot of other things that make us feel good,basically anything and everything that has to do with any goddamn outdoor activity,right?

“Here cometh April again, and as far as I can see the world hath more fools in it than ever.” – Charles Lamb

Unfortunately this has been our actuality or i can say reality in the past few months.Hence the title,April May !!

It gives me the reasons below to think why April May,be a good month for some self indulgence and trying out something apart from work.It can be hard deciding on what to write, but I’ve made a list of unique April May ideas where i have started doing certain things but no really sure how well they are or how well it will be,but I tried and it was good.

  1. April May have been the month where I started taking my calligraphy lessons.
  2. April May have been the month where I have replaced coffee with coconut water
  3. April May have been the month where I talk about positve affirmations daily
  4. April May have been the months where I walked away from toxic people and situations
  5. April May have been the month where I have realsoed my own worth and started acting accordingly.

Most importantly,

“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” – William Shakespeare

What are your April May’s have done for you?

Gratitude is Good and so are you !!

It’s the small things that matter. It is always the minute of the thing and the unexpected smile it gets on my face, my heart and in my mind. My first cup of coffee for the day elevates a different mood altogether with radiance and positivity. Believe it or not all these matters especially in our day to day lives when we are quarantined. The happy heart when you re read the pages of your fav book, the steaming hot dal chawal with your favorite vegetable, the excitement of the parcel , watching any harry potter movie for the nth time – it may be anything but it sure fills my heart with a warmth that sometimes it becomes very difficult to explain that depth of satisfaction and content.

“Sometimes the most scenic roads in life are the detours you didn’t mean to take.”
― Angela N. Blount, Once Upon an Ever After and that’s exactly what happened with few of my friendships over the years. One such very real person and a special one ;the  life support is what I believe she is. We always have that one person or may be multiple people and which is okay because we share a different bond with every other individual we meet and are a part of our life. The small things, the talks, the meetings, the fun, the cry, the happy days and gloomy days feels we have our person. We always have. What we don’t do enough is appreciate that people like these are rare and they need to be equally loved. You always cannot be at the receiving end  – it’s a two way street,always.

Hey You, this feeling of gratitude and happiness is specially for you to be that important element whenever I wanted.  Thank you for dealing with my incessant texts and calls and at the same time maintaining the sanity of our minds just to balance the ebbs and flows. You are that decision maker and a logical reason giver for validating even the pointless of discussions at times. The sense of having you around makes everything easy and I am glad that such a positive personality is a part of my life and everyone’s infact. You make it easy !!!This was a gratitude post as I have been feeling a lot of things lately and gratitude is definitely topping the list.

If you’ve read this post, please send it to someone you feel should be reading it.

Live,Breathe & Stay Positive !!

The Corridors

Silence encompasses my mind and blankets my thoughts,
The corridors speaks the same language as my mind.

Heart thumping fast and the breathing goes high,
The masks tend to make you feel breathless and there is a sad sigh.

You hear your thoughts slowly become concoted,
even the real imagination is a hoax.

A sudden breeze of unwavering thoughts come flooding in,
Traumatized and parched a blot of a sanguine appears.

Palpitations are not so tenacious at this time of rumination,
The sanguine blot lessens the pain analogously.

Suddenly the corridor is filled with people and the mind with utopia,
The blanketed thoughts slowly open up to the new horizons and possibilities.

Some thoughts still stay at some part of my head trying to figure out the why’s of things,
The corridor undeniably speaks the language of the ones who are lost and the ones who have found themselves.

Until next time,
live…love…breathe & wear your masks.

Season’s Greetings

As we wait for the winter to come, we frantically wait for the bleak October heat to end. Unlike the changing seasons, turns out that humans and relationships tend to change their phases too as they take a step forward to construct or destruct. Over the years, this has definitely taken a turn – either good or bad. The thing to think about is that how the human heart takes time to heal and the brain directs it do so. Healing and hurting at the same time is definitely wearying and sapping but there is a sunrise after every sunset, right? We tend to oversee ourselves in a situation and somehow feel that we can never get out of it – elated. Let me tell you, that’s not true as JK Rowling has quoted it and Sir Albus Dumbledore has said it in the Prisoner of Azkaban that “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

For most of us, we usually are in denial and the fact that no one can get us out of that, except for us can be trapping. Seasons change, the environment changes , the kind of food people consume changes , the clothes they wear , the hot/cold beverages they prefer , the vacation destination changes and there are a lot of other things, right? So, what do we do ?We basically adapt to the changes around ,live it in peace and move on with a positive hope. Now just imagine if we do the same in a relationship or probably with ourselves. I mean , we tend to adjust ourselves basis on the situations around to protect ourselves. Why can’t we do the same in a relation when its probably fading or hitting a patch where there is transformation from hot to cold ? If there are things bothering which are not in our control , all we can do is to hope for the best. Then there are human relationships – either with each other or with your own self but the good part is that we can make things work here. Again , making things work are only for the non-toxic relations ,is worth . Staying in a toxic one and expecting things to get back to normal is just like expecting covid-19 to end after one month of lockdown. Deepak Chopra has quoted that “All great changes are preceded by chaos” so why wait for the storm to calm when you know you are the hurricane.

Adjusting and settling to a new season and a surrounding may be difficult at first but what we don’t know is that we are in a zone where nothing is constant but change is one . We may feel that the efforts we put in a relationship or to save a relationship is worthless because the person leaves but never realize that the good part is that we tried unlike the other who gave up and walked away. Agreed, relationships do change like seasons these days and that is because people are usually scared if its snows in the midst of a sunny hot summer . It’s up to you whether to make a snowman or not make it in the fear of the sun meting it down.

Stay Safe my lovely readers.

Until next time ,

Live…Love…Positivity…Breathe !!!

An Estrange Situation

The times are rough and lockdown has extended,

Fix the broken and work on something that needs to be mended.

Be it you, a situation, a relationship or a person,

Help with optimism and make it shine like a sun.

The sun goes down and rises up again,

Be proud of how you fought against that pain.

The pain broke you and it fixed you back,

Situations and people change leaving you a bit crack.

Life doesn’t stop but people do change,

For better or for worse, you are the one to estrange.

“Why don’t you just be yourself? … No one can help but admire your spirit.
