Truth is tough, Choose tough, Stay tough.

"Truth is tough, lies are easy,
 Sometimes we choose the easy over tough.
 To preach is easy, it's tough to learn.
 The truth about learning is, it's a need,
 To stop learning, is to become obsolete.
 Choose tough, stay tough."

These words were written a few days ago. Then they lived a lonely life in the draft folder. There is more to it than being mere words that don’t rhyme.

I have always believed that life's journey is insignificant without the learnings, a big part of it.

Learnings and lessons are lot beyond few hundred pages of a book and the four walls of a classroom.

It's not just about the fear of becoming obsolete without new learnings. It's also about the loss of experiences that count.

The other part to it is the choices we make. Most of us want to avoid the tough ones, in the hope that easier choices build a easier life.

If there is one thing that I have come to realize, it's that there is nothing called as easy life. Everyone, by choice or not has face some tough shit. Just that circumstances could be different.

Nothing has ever been easy to me, well life has been a great teacher. True for everyone of us, nothing comes easy to anyone. Sometimes more knocks you take, more the energy to punch back.

It's not about knowing it all and fighting it all. It's all about the attitude and perspectives.

When you are open and hungry to learn, life only gets interesting. When you make oneself tough from within, the fight gets interesting. It's not whether you win the fight everytime. It's about are you tough enough to face new challenges.

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.

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.
