Love yourself…with your flaws ✨

Everyday I look in the mirror, at my tiny eyes, my humongous nose, my over sized front teeth and I cry. And then, I reminisce. I think of all the wrong I’ve done, all the mistakes I’ve knowingly and unknowingly committed and I drown myself in remorse and resentment. This is a routine for me, everyday. Every single day. Sometimes minimal, but on days when I’m low, to an extent that I’m reduced to tears. I’d fake amazing strength and attitude on the outside, but inside I’d be broken and brittle. I’d go into a shell and stay incognito, just keeping to myself all day long. I’d keep interaction to zilch but peep out once in a while just to check if the world’s still intact. 

I know there are so many others out there who go through the same emotions as mine. Who go into a state of depression and get all worked up. Who blame themselves for everything that goes wrong. 

To all of you out there, and to myself too, here’s what I’d like to instill, strongly :

The ultimate truth is this.

Beyond everything else, you are God’s creation. Every bit of God’s creation is always beautiful. And God has always got a plan for you, for all of us. Something good, like light at the end of a dark tunnel. 
There’s no damage in this world that’s irreparable. Spare yourself that resentment and see what you can do to set things right. There’s​ nothing in this world that can’t be cured, only realise what’s wrong in time. Every bad experience has taught you something​ you’d remember for life, has made you stronger and has helped you emerge a better person.
And, there’s no one in this world that’s perfect. Perfection is overrated, exaggerated. Perfection is fiction. Imperfection is beautiful, plausible. Imperfection is real. Imperfection is what makes us human. So learn to love yourself with your flaws, with your loss, with your past. Just remember to ditch that baggage you keep carrying in your head. 
Love yourself for who you are, for who you have been, for who you will be. There’s absolutely no one like you. You are every bit special with your flaws, incredible in ways you can’t even manifest. Be the best version of you, always, be your first priority when you need to be and love who you are, with your imperfections, unabashedly.

Cheers! 💝


My favourite way of spending a Sunday evening ✨

My favourite way of spending a Sunday evening would always be this. 

Sitting out in a quiet corner, enjoying the evening breeze, watching the birds chirp and the squirrels run around, and finding bliss in the sunset. The mind is purely in the play mode, no rewind, no fast forward, and I’m compelled to breathe in the beauty of each moment. 

The anxiety about the future forgotten, I’m just finding solace in the present. 

Trust nature to help us ease out and rediscover ourselves amidst all the chaos, atleast for a little while every now and then.



Day 11 – 30 Day Writing Challenge 💃

Something I always think “what if” about.

So, basically, I have an excruciatingly painful lot of regrets about all my faults and follies, and embarrassing moments. They are one major reason I have plenty of sleepless nights. I cringe every time I think of each of them. I don’t seem to be able to erase them off my mind or not think of them – I get flashes of them all the time, they put me in my place every time I fly high or feel happy. 

It’s such a pain, I tell you.

Which makes me feel every now and then “What if I hadn’t done that?” Or “What if I had done that the other way?”.
Wish I could go back in time and set it all right.

P.S. This is Day 11 of my 30 day writing challenge


Rain or Shine, I’ll be steady in my beat,

In no time, I’ll be up on my feet,

I wouldn’t turn back, I’d rather march ahead,

I’d rather let the sunlight guide me than the shadows!

P.S. This is part of my Pen The Picture project. Hope you like reading what I write.

I’m waiting…

To be swept by happiness and a new, positive tide,

For beautiful surprises and smiles wide,

For horizons new, and new beginnings,

To ditch all regrets of the past, to a fresh new innings!

P.S. This is part of my Pen The Picture project. Hope you like reading what I write.

The Right Thing…

In the long run, the efforts of the past yield,

Do what is good and right, even if it’s bitter when you wield,

Strike the iron when it’s hot,

Or it’ll be left useless, to rot!

P.S. This is part of my Pen The Picture project. Hope you like reading what I write.

Time’s Ticking Away…

Start, Pause, Stop;

Seize each moment – Like it’s your last,

There ain’t any rewind, Boss –

Everything’ll soon become a memory of your past!
