Black Rainbows..

I feel as though I’m trapped in a city of lifeless emotions and black rainbows.
The clouds seem to shine more than the atmosphere of this place.
The smell of judgment and pain is filling my nose.
The streets are all clogged with broken images of who I am.
I’m so lost in a place I built full of people that walk by me without recognizing me.

Untitled..

There she sat, thinking about the wrong guy all over again.
How is it possible to love two people? One more than the other, the one she was with. But the other nonetheless.
If he found about about this, he’d be furious. It was forbidden for her to have anything to do with him after all that had happened. The jealously would drive him to draw blood. She feared for his safety, but missed him more than anything.
Not having him in her life after being so dependent on him made her weak, dreary, sad.
But the weaker she got, the stronger her relationship with him got. He knew something was wrong. No matter how much she lied about being fine, he could tell she wasn’t as happy as she used to be.
She might have successfully blamed it on a lot of other believable things, but for how long?
Till she ran out of convincing reasons? Or till she couldn’t take it anymore?
She couldn’t lose him. She truly did love him.
How naive how her to want the best of both worlds just for once.
The best of two worlds that were very aware of each other, and were almost polar opposites.
One kind, caring, an asylum for her sensitivity but unable to grant her freedom and the other strong, protective but somewhat harsh on her weaknesses.
She knew what had to be done. But she couldn’t bring herself to do it.
She knew what she’d be getting into.
She didn’t want to hurt either of them, but blame her for being so helpless without either one.

You can’t hide from who you are… So be yourself! Be Proud to be YOU.

Always be yourself.
Make-up can temporarily paint over your flaws.
Pretending can temporarily fool people into thinking you’re something you’re not.
But eventually, when all the make-up washes off and you’re too sick and tired to pretend anymore,
Your true inner self stumbles out from behind the mess.
And if you try pretending you’re someone you aren’t for too long,
Then those foolish enough to fall for it will not understand the sudden change in you.
Ironically, the change will actually be who you are, but they won’t know that because they were too accustomed to your facade.

If you want people to like you for who you really are,
Have the guts to show them who you really are.
Everyone is beautiful. It’s all the lying and make-up that masks our inner beauty.

You think anyone really loves a person that’s always being fake?
Be careful. If you pretend too long, you might end up forgetting who you really are.
And when that happens, you’ll be lost in a world full of the posters you painted for yourself.
Confused whether the real you is the one you want to be, or the one you are right now.

Here’s a challenge for all you smart ones !

These are pretty clever. Don’t rush. Study each picture and try to determine what it represents before looking at the answer below the picture.

Put on your thinking caps.

Get ’em all?
Com’on be honest!

Lights in Darkness.

 

Cast out the darkness,  but then don’t expect to see how bright the light is shining.

Completely illuminate your life, but then don’t expect to be able to tell the difference between artificial and natural light.

Don’t run way from your worries, the more you run, the more tired you will get.. and when they eventually do catch up to you, you will be too tired to fight them like you could have before.

Instead of trying to inspire the idea, try and inspire the person. Planting the seed deep enough will ensure a stronger gradual grip in comparison to a seed grown on the periphery.

Don’t take anything for granted. Even a day free of infection is due to the millions of cells fighting off the bacteria you constantly breathe in. Every day without infection is a battle won.

If you take the fact that your father comes home after work every evening for granted, ask a child whose father just died what he would do for that to happen to him one more time.

If you want to know what regret feels like, then ask a smoker with lung cancer, who wishes he had listened to his loved ones when they begged and warned him to stop.

Darkness can only rule you over when you blow out the candle, or leave the window open to blow the candle out for you just in case you need something else to blame.

Nobody except for you is responsible for the things that happen to you.
If you have been mistreated, it’s only because you allowed someone to do you wrong.
It’s only human to try and find something or someone to blame your problems on.
Try and figure out any possible excuse to make yourself believe that it wasn’t your fault, just so that you can get some closure.

But sometimes, think realistically.

Your expensive bag wouldn’t have gotten stolen if you would have been more careful.
Your house wouldn’t have been broken into if you would have invested in better security software.

You wouldn’t have been broken up with if you would have chosen the right kind of guy in the first place.

Then the question will arise in your mind of How you were supposed to know it was going to happen. Right?
Well it’s quite simple. You didn’t. You couldn’t have. There’s no way of telling what curved balls your life is going to throw at you.
But you must remember. Even though you didn’t know the consequence, at the end of the day YOU are the one who made the choice, or let someone else make the choice for you.
So you are the one accountable for it.

Instead of wasting your time harboring hatred for someone, try spending that same amount of energy fixing what went wrong.
You’ll suddenly notice that you’re a lot better off than you were when you spent your time cursing people.

Where there is a will, there is a way.!

Last year, my high school had taken my batch on an outstation trip to a tiger reserve in Ranthambore. One of the many activities we did out there was rappling. We were taken to a river where we sat down by the boulders and stones and were briefed on how to carry out the forthcoming activity. The activity was of course, an optional one, so we were all asked if we would like to take part in it or not. Being one of the few who opted to try rappling, i realised that we as humans fall into three, very distinct categories : The wills, the won’ts and the can’ts.

Every now and then through the course of life we come across various obstacles that we will have to overcome in order to move ahead. The outcome of this is completely dependent on how we choose to respond to the challenge we are facing.

Some people confidently say that they will go ahead and try to move past it, most of which suceed due to their determind frame of mind and fearless attitude.
Some say they would simply not want to try moving past it at all. These are the one’s who oppose the situation, carefully watvhing the task at hand to find any fault which could help them firmly disapprove of the task that has to be done.
The third type however, decide that the task that has been given to them is impossible without even trying and therefore it cannot be done. as a result, these type of people obviously lose out on many of the opportunities that life has to offer simply because they could not even bother giving themselves a chance.


I as an individual, strongly believe that nothing is impossibe and that any task that has to be done can be done if we think openly and find a way to do it. this is why i can proudly say that those who believe in themselves, fall in the “will ” category. Quoting the phrase, “Where there is a will there is a way,” I believe these people will, with adequate amounts of hard-work and patience, achieve their goals in life.

Ever just felt numb?

Just the other day, I was at a friends villa in one of the most beautiful places i have ever seen. She was celebrating her birthday and thus had invited everyone over.

After a long bus journey across the countryside, we finally reached the location. On reaching there, everyone spread out and started doing their own thing. Some were dancing, some were chatting, but for some reason, i found myself engulfed with a feeling of numbness, just staring into the little pond in front of me.

While gazing at the sunset over the hills around me, i started reflecting upon myself, on my life, looking back at the decisions i had made.
All the decisions i regret.
All the little happy moments that I loved.
But even though i was spending my time glancing through the various emotionally contrasting times of my life, i still felt completely emotionally numb.
There was neither a tear, nor a smile on my face.
Just an unknown feeling of realization and acceptance.

Accepting myself. Me. Accepting and becoming familiar with all those feelings i had shunned away in desperate times.

This feeling has lasted for quite a while.
I started thinking it wasn’t normal to just be so okay with everything around me.
It wasn’t normal for nothing in my surroundings to be affecting me. Nothing at all. I started panicking.

But you know what i realized, that eventually, this feeling ran its course and changed a part of me forever.
I found myself a lot more comfortable with who i was. I felt much more open. I felt free.

I don’t know what brought this on, or why it suddenly just hit me the way it did, but I started appreciating myself and loving myself a little more than i did before.. and I’m really glad it did happen. 🙂
