Commit, to only what you want to, to only what you can,
Pursue what you must, stick to what you plan,
The pitfalls and the stopgaps, of which you fear,
Only come to show when your focus is unclear,
Set your destination right,
The goals to reach there, kept always in sight,
Discover your zenith,
For success, has never been a myth!
Yesterday, my friend and I got into a share-auto on our way back home from work. Soon afterward, the heavy downpour started and as the auto sped off we were worried about how we’d reach home on time. Since we were the last 2 passengers in the rickshaw, the driver said he’d better head straight home, when he asked him if he could drive us to our destination (we had to take another bus to reach home). Fair enough. But then, as we reached our stop, the downpour became heavier making it impossible for people to walk on the streets without an umbrella or a jerkin – and we had neither. The auto rickshaw driver sensing that offered to drive us to the bus stop (for which he had to take a left from the junction where we had planned to get down and drive a few metres, whilst he had planned to go straight) and we gratefully agreed.
But he didn’t just drop us off at the bus stand and leave yesterday. He was kind enough to let us wait in the auto rickshaw until the bus came (10 minutes later), he ensured both of us got in safely and then left the place.
That was one good turn our way yesterday. God bless him in abundance ✨😊
Why meddle when you’re unsure,
Why meddle if it wouldn’t find you, your cure,
Just play along,
For He knows what is right and what is wrong,
Why meddle and spoil the fun,
When you can focus just on what you want to get done?
Each of us has a story,
To be sung out loud in all its glory,
A story to be proud of,
A story that you wouldn’t wanna morph,
So hang in there a bit more,
Even if things turn a little too sour,
‘Cause, relieved you’d be only if there were,
Experiences and nuances you get to share!
Why bottle it all up, inside,
When you can let your emotions be your guide,
When you can choose how (art, music, poetry, dance, theatre, cinema and so much more), to bring it all out,
Not just scream, weep, laugh or shout,
Where, you can stagger, yet, find your own pace,
Paint your canvas red, if it’d bring you solace,
Why bottle it all up inside,
When there’s so much in the world to confide!
It’s never too late,
Don’t push something to be destined by fate,
Instead, work your way toward what you want,
There’s nothing in the universe, that achieve, you can’t,
For, what you’re seeking, is lying in wait, seeking you,
And all it takes, to reach there, is, efforts true,
Be your own paragon,
Become your own icon,
Create for you, a niche that you’d be proud to own,
An identity, a name, that no one can dethrone,
Begin to climb the ladder to a life you think would awesome,
Live to see your dreams blossom!
The last thing anyone needs in life is negativity. In any form.
What’s meant to be, will be and there’s no stopping it. But let’s not complicate it more.
There’s already too much void around, in life. There’s no more space for vaccum.
So here’s to weeding out.
Weeding out people, and thoughts, that ain’t anything else but only to pass your time with.
And here’s to blocking all the vaccum and void with people who you really matter to, and who, matter to you.
Because, the rest don’t really fit in.
So here’s my mid year resolution.
From people, to whom I ain’t bringing a ray of sunlight. From people who only lend me shadows and dark clouds – sans the rain. From instability. From disrespect. From resentment, regret and repentance.
And here’s to my bunch of happy people. For, you are my sunshine, you are my rain. Because it sometimes takes a storm, a rollercoaster ride or a tender flight to realize what people truly are.
Oh, and the number of contacts on your WhatsApp chat or the friends on your Facebook account really don’t matter. ‘Cause you already know who you are to people and they know what they mean to you.
P.S. Let them know they mean the world to you, if they don’t already know. It’s important they know.
P.P.S. Choose wisely. ✨
