Be The Change…..

Sitting at the window sill

Watching life pass me by

I’d wait for the pieces

To fall together

For the mist to part

And make way

For fair weather

But then I discovered

The wait was ceaseless

And interminable

Life isn’t a fairy tale or fable

Where things change at

The snap of a finger

Or Touch of A wand

I had to learn to clear the

Clouds in my head

And look beyond

To seize the moment

And take the bull by its horn

Instead of being lost and forlorn

It was time to be

The change I so yearned to see

Quest

What am I

But a tiny speck

In the colossal mortal sky

What is the Raison d’être

For my existence

To learn to resonate

Lessons of patience, fortitude

And persistence

What do I want to be

An unchained, mellifluous melody

Destiny’s Dance

Reflecting on life’s each decision

I ask myself an inevitable question

What if I had traversed another path?

Would there have been another aftermath?

Had I heeded another voice?

Would that have changed my choice?

That is when it did dawn on me

Life’s a peculiar intertwine tween choice and destiny

What came my way wasn’t because I wanted it to

It wasn’t there just out of the blue

Everything that comes our way

Has a lesson that needs to stay

With us in the sojourn called life

All uncertainty, challenge and strife

Wasn’t entirely futile or hollow

Rather it had a deep message

Which we need to follow

Boulders and rocks in our path

Are meant to show

Us the beacon light

That helps us grow

As individual and shine bright

 

 

 

 

 

Triumph Of The Human Spirit

Kudos to the human spirit which is indomitable.and it’s amazing abillity to bounce back from the worst of situations. We all go through life, sometimes stumble our way through it..make mistakes, make wrong choices..are down in the dumps.sometimes it is a ..heartbreak,losing a  job, bouncing back after a grave illness…We’ve all seen people rise from the ashes like the phoenix…It is nothing but resilience that helps people survive and thrive.Life always gives us a second chance provided we are willing to see it.. These setbacks and experiences shouldn’t leave us feeling trapped or less about ourselves instead they are signs that something better is waiting around the corner.. I remember a friend in college who would lament and cry over the number of failed relationships she had behind her..But the same girl today moved on and is a happy, much married girl .. Had she allowed her past to haunt her, would this have been possible ? We often cling and hold on to the past and judge ourselves too harshly over a failed relationship or job.. What we need to see was that each of these merely happened because we had a lesson to learn from them.at that point in time.. We don’t need to carry these as albatrosses around our necks..The very fact we were able to tide over these trying times means we had to courage to go on… There is no use clinging to mistakes of the past,or worry over how we may handle what lies in the future. Lets just take each day as it comes and welcome it with open arms lets embrace all that life brings our way…

To Eternal Optimism

Hope tell you there is light at the end of the tunnel which is dark..

Hope is what keeps you going like the soothing song of a lark

Hope is what should be trusted not your fears.

A smile is what you ought to face life with not just tears…

Hope helps you triumph and move ahead in life

hope is what helps you sale through conflict and strife

Hope helps you overcome the pain..

Despite a tumultuous storm, hope keeps you sane.

To hope against hope , people say is all in vain..

But to keep the flame of hope burning despite the odds is the biggest gain…

Yet another session of notes to myself.. I feel I am becoming too much a of a cynicist…so thought I’d remind myself of the undeniable power that faith, hope and optimism bring to one’s life.. It is good to be in sync with reality, but one should never stop looking at the glass of life as “half full”
