Let’s Talk About Music!

original

Dear Readers,

I have not been keeping well from last 5-6 days, which has proved good in a way that

A. I am back to blogging

B. I got the time to listen to some really cool and different music on YouTube

Therefore, here I am, back with some cool new music recommendations. I hope you like ‘em:

  1. A drop in the ocean- Ron Pope

A drop in the ocean

A change in the weather

I was praying that you and me might end up together

It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert

But I’m holding you closer than most ’cause you are my heaven

  1. Pictures of You- The Cure

If only I’d thought of the right words

I could have held on to your heart

If only I’d thought of the right words

I wouldn’t be breaking apart

All my pictures of you

A Rainy Day- Look Up!

A rainy day brings up different moods in different people, I believe. For people in love, it must be full of romance and happiness. For some, it might be an opportunity to sit alone and read or write or contemplate with a steaming cup of coffee beside them. And there must be some to whom a rainy day brings up memories from past- good and bad.

However, for me, this day was a happy day. On this day, I was looking forward to a lot of new things/ new changes happening in my life. I was optimistic, hopeful, and “living in the moment”. For a person like me who loves to “go with the flow”, this day definitely is a treasure of wonderful memories!

The Face in the Mirror

Whose Face am I looking at?

The glitter in your eyes,

The sparkle in your smile,

The laughter on your lips,

Where is it all gone?

This reflection of mine

It is not what I used to be.

I am what you have made me, dear!

I am your choices,

I am your regrets,

I am your hardships,

I am your struggle,

I am your courage.

But, how did I forget to be happy?

You did not forget to be happy, dearest!

You merely forgot to live in the moment.

The God is a God of Justice, not you ISIS!

The war that you wage,
The crimes you commit against the humanity,
What do you want to prove?
That you are the ‘Rulers of the World’?
By killing hundreds and thousands of people,
By setting fire to someone’s loved one, Read the rest of this entry »

The Choices I Made! A Post Dedicated to the Year 2015!

As I look back on the Year 2015, I think of all the things that altered the course of my journey, or in other words, the things that led me to the path I am walking on today. These things are the choices that I made! And I would like to list a few of them down for you:

  1. I chose to end the toxic friendships which were nothing but a stress to my mind. Because who wants friends who only make you feel “less than”. The year was about ending some friendships and not feeling sorry at all.
  2. I chose to be more independent than I was back in college, as early as possible, by accepting the very first job offered to me. I did not think twice about the pros and cons because all I wanted at that time was to get into the corporate life as soon as possible and be more independent. I am glad I do not regret my decision.
  3. Being an introvert by nature, the third choice that I made was the toughest one. I chose not to hold myself back from sharing my feelings, my thoughts with those who matter to me, those who care about me, those who understand me. And somehow, it feels good.

Review: Man’s Search for Meaning

Man's Search for Meaning
Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The autobiography part was heart-wrenching. But the second and third parts of the book were based on pure psychiatry/ psychoanalysis/ logotherapy and most of the terms were difficult to comprehend. All in all, it was an eye-opener in many senses- how people behave when they feel that their suffering is not worthy, how they need a goal/ a meaning to be able to fight for survival, why humans hurt other humans, et al.
I am rating it 3 stars owing to its hard-to-understand psychiatric terms.

Heya fellow bloggers and my readers!

I am currently reading ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ and like million other readers in the world, I share the same view that this book grabs your attention from the very first page. And I even found that powerful quote (which is going to be my all-time favorite quote now) on the first page itself! I wonder what the rest of the pages have in store for me! 😀

How I Started Blogging!

Heya my Blogger Friends!

Today I got my 150th follower (thanks to Dr. Joseph Suglia) and it feels good to see this count increasing with each passing day. I had started this blog two years back at a time when I was feeling very low, life had taken a big turn, and I was trying to cope up with whatever life threw my way. I needed a place where I would be able to distract myself from the “reality” (even though for a brief period, but it did help me), I wanted to be as far away from the reality as possible. You may think I am a dodger but I am not. Because ultimately, I did have to go back to “life” and start facing all the problems and come out of it more strongly than ever.

It’s strange how life makes you do/try things you never would have thought of doing otherwise! This blog is one of them!

#DearMe

top_logo

This is a message that I have written for my 16-year-old (younger) self as a part of the #DearMe campaign:

Hey girl,

Right now everything must be all goody-good around you, and the only worry you must be having is your board exams. I’d tell you to not take tension about all these petty things- exams, looks, crushes, career, future!! Because in a few years, you’d realize what matters most and that is your family and nothing else. All that matters is that your family is happy and healthy; everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae. I’d ask you to enjoy each and every moment with your loved ones; go out with them, go out often, click loads and loads of pictures with mom dad and di, spend more and more time with them instead of trapping yourself in your room to study all the time. In a few years time, you’re gonna face a lot of challenges, you are gonna learn to be strong, you’ll learn how to remain positive in every situation, you’re gonna witness the real problems and you are also gonna come out of those strongly. In a few years, you will be away from your family and will long to be with them at every moment. People are gonna change, you are gonna change. You will learn some hard lessons after going through a lot of drama in your life. All I have to say is be strong and brave, be independent, smile often, respect yourself enough to walk away from what makes you unhappy, and enjoy life!! Do not care a bit about what others do, about what others are gonna say, about how others treat you!! Don’t be bothered by anything and anyone. Love your family and trust that everything’s gonna be alright in the end. You definitely are gonna be more than alright in a few years, girl! Just keep going!
