This is something ephemeral but every bit of it is being shared and enjoyed. We must strive to live our life like a cake; sharing and enjoying every moment. 🙂

Who is Great?

What’s the use of having a mind if it can’t change? 

Young or old, big or small, there’s nothing strange!

Open the arms, breathe deep, feel the air come in,

Our destiny is in our hand, let’s play it!

To hold on or to give up, just don’t bother;

We’re not alone, we all move together!

Sunrise or sunset, appreciate the beauty,

Don’t compare, it’s the Sun’s duty! 

Let’s do our duty come what may;

Thank the Lord, it’s another new day!

Depth of Life

Mountain n river- Bageshwar

 Dark is the absence of light,

Hate is the absence of love,

Death is the absence of life.

Rules and laws are made by us,

Situations change but rules never change!

Is it fair enough?

We punish the wrong and reward the right,

With the hope that wrong never prevail;

How far is this right?

If the world has changed,

Why do we still talk of change!

If we all are sinners, then who are we to judge?

We are not prisoners;

We do not need rules to live,

Then why can’t we take a risk,

And think positive!

Arrest hatred, arrest the furious mind,

Punish jealousy and greed,

Leave the negative behind.

Right or wrong, good or bad,

Are we not aware?

Feel the depth of life, far and wide;

Let peace prevail worldwide.

Know Our World- Week 4

Know our world JPEG

This is part of Share Your World: Week 4  hosted by Cee’s Photography. Questions are asked every week. For the answers to Share Your World- Week 1 to Week 3, click  Know Our World.

Here are the questions for this week and our response to those questions that will give you more insight about us. Enjoy! 😉

Q. 1 Where did you live at age five?  Is it the same place or town you live now?

Answer.

Five is a number so tender; the life of an offender, defender and pretender;

None other than parents we did surrender. 

Now is the time to look around; go ahead and take that stride; 

Near or far, to follow our dreams, we plan to travel worldwide.

Q. 2 You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met.  Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?

Answer.

If we are Invited to a party of fascinating people we would never go to that party. Rather we would prefer meeting those people alone. 🙂

Q. 3 Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?

Answer.

Growing up is part of learning, we admit it!

Small town or big, we lived our life and we liked it!

Q. 4 As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

This is simple. An adult!

Q. 5 Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Oxygen steals the bonus again!

Life Goes On…

Food for thought: When was the last time you were ready to throw in the proverbial towel? Did you end up letting go, or decided to fight on anyway?

Whether we decide to let go or fight back; what matters is feel comfortable; because the soul is important, not the problem.

Set the mind free!

There cannot be just one answer to different questions. Similarly, the problems we encounter do not come with just one solution. At times, we need to fight back; while at other times we need to just let it go! If fighting back does not land us in comfortable situation, there is no other option but to just let it go!

There have been several instances in our life when, if we let go the problem, the solution seems to be just ahead of us; which otherwise was not visible when we were trying to fight back. That short break provides the needed energy and positive energy to fight back!

Fight back with positive energy!

Throw in the towel is a time when time needs to be given time. Time heals all pain and adversity. “Do not quit” would be too harsh on the heart and soul; if quitting is what makes us feel good! How else can we open doors to new opportunities if we never quit?

In any case, whether we let it go or decide to fight back, the fuel that keeps us moving is never regret. That calls for saying; we have to trust our decisions and keep the faith. There must have been some reason behind that decision we took. If Plan A didn’t work, there is always a Plan B. Create as many plans as we see fit!  But just move on. This is how we learn. And living is a learning experience.

JUST ONE MOMENT

This post is part of The Daily Post: Two Right Feet

What are the things you need to do within 30 minutes of waking up to ensure your day gets off on the right foot? What happened the last time you didn’t do one of these things?

IMG_4535

30 minutes or 15 minutes,

Will make no difference;

Wake up feeling good,

The day will give you preference.

Open your eyes, wear that smile,

Thank the Lord for keeping you alive;

Left foot or right, never worry!

Go slow and steady, do not hurry. 

Wake up happy, it’s another new day;

Do not hesitate to make a demand,

And the genie will say,

“Your wish is my command”.

If daily routines make you sick,

Relax, let time play the trick;

Discover the hidden treasure,

The ‘feel good’ moment will give you real pleasure.
