New Day, New Beginning!
acts and action from which you derive immense happiness, but they don’t pay you
to make a living off it. They may be hobbies you pursue, things that you do to
have a happy soul. And somewhere down the journey you add the element of expectations
to it. Instead of acts of selfless joy these turn to be acts of ego. Expectations
somehow add to your miseries which you were already battling in life. Gradually
you stop pursuing little acts of happiness and stay stuck in daily muddle of
chasing the unknown to make a living.
Until one day
you wake up after a sleepless night and speak to your inner self. Cry out loud,
question self about your foolishness and then feel determined to start the
journey rediscover self. You start to put together bits and pieces of the
shattered self. Feel resurgent and decide to start pursuing those acts of
selfless joy. Fully aware that the battle of life neither begins with self nor
can be brought to an end. It only transforms to present new situations with
changing phases. Despite all its challenges life still showers moments of
happiness. It’s all in the present and we can’t let it go by unidentified just
because we were too busy fighting our battles.
Just like the
first ray of the sunrise a new hope is impregnated within me. May be finding
joy in activities I enjoy, like writing, I would be able to reclaim my little

the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

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.
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.
