Let Go.

My favourite post as on date. I insist you actually read it to know why.
A hint here, maybe.
Live to the fullest extent your heart wants to. Don’t cling on to something that’ll make you nothing but sad. Bury it deep, never to be recovered. Do yourself a favour, and love yourself for what you are.

Until a few days back, I was this douche bag, that was living with the memories of the past. Horrible, cringe-worthy memory. My mind was this “Pensieve” which kept storing only hard hitting, belittling, embarrassing memories. And each moment, each day, I would hash out atleast one from it and begin to feel guilty. Each memory had something to do with a mistake I had committed. I was living a life of regret, and resentment was probably the only emotion that I felt all day. All the good things, good memories were wiped away from time to time, under the weight of the negativity surrounding me, within me. I hated myself for my existence. I hated my appearance, my very being. I thought I was all bad, the rotten apple of the dozen. I didn’t seem to find any good in me at all, and if at all I did, I found it easier to overlook it than let it bring positivity into me. I hated every bit of me I knew. I was supremely under confident. And at the end of each day, when I recollected the day’s activities, I would end up finding one thread which I would spin into a yarn big enough to begin to feel guilty about. I would blame myself for everything that went wrong. I would think every other person in the world, other than I, was a much better human than me. My reaction to each situation would be based on my memories of the past. (Mind you, though my mistakes weren’t huge, according to me they were inexcusable. But I had the habit of exaggerating my each small mistake to something extremely big, that I would end up writhing in shame, everytime.) It would have been a random, meaningless conversation, but I would end up drawing a hundred different conclusions from it. I would replay each and every moment of the day and think of a hundred different reasons to why I shouldn’t have said/done what I had, and would go back  to feeling guilty all over again. I was exhausting to live with. I would lose my temper at the drop of a hat, and panic for something as normal as the rain. Although I had learned from my mistakes, I wasn’t ready to accept the fact that’s it’s all okay.

But this is exactly what resentment does to you, right?

I wasn’t ready to let go. I wasn’t ready to forgive myself. I wasn’t ready to give myself a chance. I wasn’t ready to love myself. 

Then, realisation hit me. In a way I didn’t expect it to. And I want to share it with people who are letting themselves wither away because of the regret of the past.

It doesn’t matter what you were in the past. Each human is imperfect and has a shit-load of regrets. To err is human. Every one commits mistakes. To learn from them and to not commit them again is the only lesson out of it. The mistakes don’t decide who you are, or your character. How you come out of it decides who you are. Love yourself for what you are. You are unique and there’s no one like you, and won’t ever be. So love yourself completely. With the flaws in you. The flaws make you beautiful. The flaws make you who you are. The flaws make you one in a million. The flaws give you your identity. So, appreciate yourself for who you are.

Forgive yourself. Flush out all the regret, the resentment. Let it all go. Because if they stay, they’ll only drain you of everything positive in and around you. You won’t allow yourself to live fully if you are going to remain the stupid douche bag. Don’t stop yourself from doing what you want to. Don’t be too hard on yourself. See things for what they are, not what you expect them to be. You’re going to be missing on the happiness of the present if the you’re going to let the past make you cringe for your existence. Seize each moment, and live in your present. Don’t just be a product of your past, evolve each day. See the world in a whole new light each living moment.

P.S. There will always be people to put you down, bring down your confidence. There will be people to judge you no matter what you do. Shut your ears to them, you can’t fend yourself from each one out there. There’s no need to. Just go out and do your thing. Give yourself real happiness, and a lot of it.

The Little Joys…

Whether you’re on the top, or climbing your way up,

Whether you’re incredibly famous, or a plain Jane,

They hold the key to eternal peace and a sleep, sound!

Believe – Live Your Happiness 

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now. Finally made it. Read it to make a difference; to yourself, to those around you.

Most of us go seeking for success, and rightly so, because we aspire to reach somewhere. We often set parameters for ourselves – a good thing too, goals help us measure where we are and how close we are to what we want. 

But somewhere in the process of proving ourselves to the world, we lose track of what we really want, what our happiness really lies in. In our eagerness to prove ourselves, we set goals based on what our peers achieve. 

Success and happiness can never be relative. They are exclusive to each individual. No one person’s success/happiness can be a parameter to measure the other’s. 

Never restrict or doubt your capabilities. Give your best always. Always. Let there never be any compromises ever. Let nothing stop you from delivering to your fullest extent possible. Let nothing give way for regret, repentance or penance.

Find happiness in each small thing you come across. Like getting to eat your favourite delicacy for dinner. Like watching your favourite movie.Like reading your favourite book. Like listening to some good music. Like talking to your friends.

Express your gratitude however small the help. Appreciate, however small the effort. Apologise, however small your mistake. The peace you’ll experience is immeasurable, irreplaceable. 

Find your joys in the small wonders around. Life is too short for despair.

My Space..

Where I sit by the window and enjoy a cup of tea,

Or stare idly at the seamless sea,

Where I think of all I want and let my thoughts flow,

And into me, new rays of hope I sow!

P.P.S. For the record though, I hate tea and the sea. Have used it here solely for the rhyme 😛

I Decide…

I decide what’s good for me,

I know what’ll make ME happy,

So, quit making me toe the line,

It’s time I step out and shine!

Bliss…

The lights, the music,

The crowd, the traffic;

Oh! What would I not give, to have some quiet and peace,

To enjoy my evening with some sunshine and breeze!
