Smile.... A Beautiful Expression

Smile... it’s such a simple expression yet a beautiful one.... just looking at a simple smile on ones face can make an onlooker’s day bright and shinning.... It’s so infectious and hard to ignore...

Read it somewhere – “A smile is a facial expression formed by flexing the muscles near both ends of the mouth.” This was followed by further explanation; smile involves contraction of both the zygomatic major muscle and the orbicularis oculi muscle. This explanation had me in splits. For I have never really pondered about scientific definition of a smile. For me smile is a smile, just a beautiful expression.

My day in this busy and bustling city makes me feel tired and worn out... Yet whenever I chance upon a smile in this crowded city it’s all but natural for me to smile too. And then it feels so different, a sense of happiness takes me under its wings and I feel excited and relaxed again.

There have been times when I feel all low and tired, struggling my way to get into the crowded train. Jostling and belligerently I finally get into the train finding hard to balance self amongst the crowd and then I see sudden flash smile from a stranger in the crowd. That smile instantly peps me up and gives me strength to carry on my journey to my destination.

Instances of smile working wonders are many. But the innocent smile of kid in a crowd takes the cake. There is something about that innocent smile, something totally magical. At times I find the innocent smile to be of divine nature for it distinctly makes me feel reassured that my pains are just momentary and my worries, frivolous.

More often than not a smile is prelude to beautiful relationships in the world. Relationships tied together by bond of blood or brought together by love! Irrespective of its nature smile only makes them grow stronger and bloom into firmer relationships.

As I make my way now to set up my bed for a good night’s sleep all I want to say to everyone who ever reads this silly blog of mine – “ KEEP SMILING”! J

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

-VJ says ~ cheers and peace

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.

A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.

We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.

We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
