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! 💝

Conquer…

Conquer,

Your insecurities, your fears,

Your secrets, your lies,

Your failings, your flaws,

Your misgivings, your loss,

With,

Your goodness, your truth,

Your happiness, your faith,

Your trust, your hope,

Your love, your ability to cope…

Each day, be the best version of you,

Make your every dream come true!

Moments 💝

I was sitting in a share-auto, stuck in traffic yesterday evening, when I got to visualise this wonderful moment. An old man, was struggling to cross the road with his luggage – he couldn’t walk fast with the baggage he had, and the signal was red. Two kids, who were playing on the footpath nearby, saw this and quickly ran over to him, got the baggage from his hands. One of the kids, called over to a third kid and asked him to help the old man cross the road. In seconds, the old man and his luggage were across the road, safe and sound. The old man’s happiness was evident from the smile on his face. 
Help still does reach those who need it, without them having to ask for it.
Moments like these assure you that the world is still a wonderful, wonderful place to live in. 

Moments💖

A series I’m starting, to bring around positivity, love and hope in my own small way by sharing good, real incidents I chance to be part of, in my daily life. Just to spread the word that humanity is still alive. Titling them ‘Moments’, because they are really moments to cherish, rejoice and celebrate. Moments to recollect and remember. Moments with no message and moral. Moments that are simply valuable moments.
And they’d be handwritten because I believe handwritten notes carry so much warmth and belonging in them. Also because I’ve been wanting to write for so long and this is my chance to begin.

So trusting and warm and real. I don’t know if the kids know each other, but I could really see the willingness to help, trust and belong.

Cheers!

P.S. I know, I know I need to work on my handwriting :p
