Don’t Impress! Express!

Below are some of the photographs we thought of sharing with our fellow bloggers. Check what they have to express!

This is a challenge before us, to show what “express yourself” mean to us. This post is in response to The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Express Yourself.

We love to capture different moments in our life and find it exciting to express our thoughts through these random clicks. We made an attempt to express our journey of life through these photographs. So, fasten your seat belts and enjoy this journey through our head and heart ! 🙂

1. Hunt for truth:

The oar as seen immersed in water has something to say!

Do not believe what you hear, do not believe what you see,

A smile on your face may not mean you’re free;

The actions we take are the reactions we face,

Do not judge, the truth lies beneath;

This is what we believe.

2. Surprises matter

IMG_1254

Life is full of surprises, good or bad;

Never stop learning, happy or sad.

3. Solve problems

When faced with problems, do not complain;

Look for alternative solutions, take a concrete decision.

4. Plan with open mind

Dream and plan with an open mind,

Follow the step you’ve designed;

If plans begin to fail, do not sigh;

The open mind will help you to fly! 

5. Mould to fit

Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery;

Mould to fit today, shape your destiny.

6. Adventure calling

Up and down, far or near;

Live your dreams, don’t you fear.

7. Free- flowing

IMG_0984

Life is not a race, reflect and see,

Be good, humanity is the key;

Among the masses you may be known,

But it takes everything to stand alone.

8. Emotional

IMG_1698

One, two, three, four, five;

Ready to taste the flavors of life.

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten;

Here and there we fall, but rise again.

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.

Blogging is fun

Blogging is fun

Blogging is fun, there’s nothing to lose,

Good or bad, share your views;

Walk the talk, go slow,

Be careful with words you throw.

Take out time to meet and greet,

Reflect how people feel;

As you sow , so shall you reap;

If you’re left behind, don’t you weep.

Name and fame are just dust,

You’re a genius, always trust;

‘Followers’ and ‘likes’ give you the hike;

Visit your followers, do not dislike.

High or low, less or more;

Do not stop, continue to explore;

Keep the balance, or you drown;

Do not frown, just calm down.

Blogging is fun, there’s nothing to lose,

 Good or bad, share your views;

Walk the talk, go slow,

Be careful with words you throw. 🙂

There seems to be a new discovery,

An ardent love for poetry;

Fingers dancing on the keyboard,

The mind willing to go on broad!

 

A random word was what we chose,

In response to the Daily Post;

Thank you WordPress for being the host;

Oh! Now the world feels so much close!

 

This is the eleventh picture we found in google,

Yes, the word we searched was ‘travel’;

No, it’s not poetry, just a rhythm to our thought,

To intensify literature, we need to learn a lot!

Life

A beautiful landscape
A view of Bhimtal taken from Bhowali, in Uttarakhand, India.

Nothing stays forever,

Even emotions disappear;

Family and friends are close to the heart,

Hold them tight before they depart;

Achievement and success give short-term pleasure,

Beautiful memories are all we must treasure.

Nothing stays forever,

Enjoy the journey, do not regret later;

Money and wealth, are the materials we hold,

The moments we live, are actually gold;

Count your blessings, thank the Power Supreme, 

Live the life you always dream.

Applause!

Just one reader, is not what we target;

Sia Positive is the one reader, before millions would get.

Here is a short letter we’d like to write

To Sia Positive, telling her to bring us pride.

 

Our blog is just six months old,

The Daily Posts and Challenges help realize our goal;

A box full of random thoughts and clicks,

Has managed to catch more than four thousand hits!

 

Spare some time, take a look,

Because we want to write a book;

Measure the reflections that we give,

Craft the posts before the readers leave.

 

Make it sound, read it loud,

Help the trio feel very proud;

World never criticizes without a cause,

Oh! Please read our blog, build it worthy of applause.

Skill of Living

Art of living

There are instances in life when we start questioning our existence; when nothing goes right and we feel left behind. These are times when we wish to be the master (or mistress) of some skill in this world; so that we can move on smoothly and live our life with contentment.

The skill that we would pick is: Skill of Living. We choose this skill because mastering the Skill of Living will act as a stimulus and show us the way to be the master in all other skills.

Here are few examples that we think, represent the Skill of Living. There is a negative though that may push us down, followed by a positive thought that will pull us up again.

“I’ve wasted my time”

“Every moment wasted has taught me to climb”

 

“I’m not intelligent, confident and smart”

“Never compare, get recharged and restart”

 

“There are people bad and good”

“Look at me, it’s something i misunderstood”

 

“You pulled me down, I’m hurt”

“I know my worth, I’m beautiful from my heart”

 

“I’m depressed, lonely and sad”

“These moments make me strong, I’m glad”

 

“Don’t do this, don’t do that”

“Take a risk, just go ahead”

 

“Time waits for no one”

“Remove the battery and it’s done”

 

“I’m negative, discontent and do not know how to chill”

“I know the Skill of Living, I’m the master of this skill !”

A Long Drive

IMG_0928

How much is too much?

Is a question the mind asked;

Competition, expectation and position;

Are all that makes everything  a bit too much!

 

He is the best, she is the best;

But we need to be better than the rest!

Take it easy, do not strive too hard,

Fast! Learn the art of working smart!

 

Success, fame or wealth comes later,

A happy journey is all that matter;

Breathe free, go for a long drive;

Let the heart and soul feel alive!
