Is Forever, Really Forever?

One line Story – #2

Departed forever from you, "Is forever, really forever?"

This one liner story struck my mind when one of my blogger friend thegenxtravels commented on my previous one line story and said “if forever, is really forever?”

Sometimes just one line is sufficient to spill out an entire story for you. That’s the amazing power words have in them.

So what’s your thought on this? “Can forever, really be forever?” ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Yes? No? Please feel free to share your views in the comments section below.
Happy Reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

P.s – All the one liner stories are truly fictional.

Why two strangers ever choose to be friends.

Eric and Jennifer!

Eric was a fun loving guy who had made his presence known in the place he was working.
Jennifer was gem of a girl who had just stepped into her professional path by joining her first Job.

He was a very busy guy who would mingle with every other person in the office.
She would always be in a dilemma as to with whom she can speak or not. After lot of repeated conversations with Eric, she knew that he would be the go to guy on whom she can count on in this new world!

As Eric was a Senior and Jennifer was a Junior in same team, things went on very well. For almost a year, they could barely speak in office hours. But as time passed, there came a point where two strangers were no more strangers but turned out to be very best of friends.
(When there is right mixture of thoughts and emotions between any two individualsย then they eventually turn out to be best of friends irrespective of how many times you speak or not. Then along with it, its share of expectations, disappointments will follow too..) Continue reading

Break Barriers

Are we like these fleas ..

More often I ask this question to myself. Whenever I come across any situation that makes me sulk down and question myself.

Am I doing just enough? Can I do anything better than what I do now? and many more questions like these haunt me day in day out. These are the questions I ask to myself. To know if I have set any limitations to me. Can I break this barrier around to do much better than what I do?

Let me just give an example about these fleas I had read about.

In one of the studies done with fleas. It was observed that a lot of fleas were all put in a single glass container with a lid on top. These fleas immediately tried to jump out of the container but always got hit by the lid. They did try for a while until they realized that there is no way they can get out of this container.

After a while, lid was opened and what you see would boggle your mind.

All the fleas just jumped out of the container and scattered away?

 

Not at all. Much to everyone’s surprise. This was not what happened. All the fleas remained where they were in the container even though the lid was completely opened.

Getting back to the questions that I asked to myself just above this illustration.

And this is the answer I give to myself to get over any situation I am in. Yes, surely I can get over any difficult situations I might be in now. All by faith and determination I can surely achieve the greater heights in my life by breaking every difficult situation I am in right now.

Yes. I strongly believe we should not be like these fleas and condition ourselves to the circumstances that we are in and just be with. We should always try to get over it and get to the greater heights in our life.

Just because of any mere situation or circumstances. We should never give up and live with just anything.

Will you agree to what I just said above? Are you like these fleas? or Can you break through these circumstances to see greater heights in your life?

Well, let me know what you think about this in the comments section below. Looking forward to hear your thoughts.

If you liked this piece of writing from me. Please do like, share and ask your friends to follow me on my blog for much more of these to come ๐Ÿ˜‰

Writers Block

Lost but now found..

Hey Guys…

Hope you all are doing great. Well, I am worn out writing apology notes for not being active on my blog since months for now. I kept wondering for myself as to why am I not able to make any time for myself to come and speak out on my blog.

I kept wondering on what could be the reason behind it and asking lot of questions to myself.ย Could it be because I am a lot stuck with my day-to-day activities revolving around my workplace or for various personal priorities?

After a long wait to figure out what exactly was blocking me out from speaking on my blog. I came across this term called – Writers Block…

Yes, there was a time when I had first begun my blogging journey exactly a year back. And, I use to wonder if there is really anything like this in real? How can anyone get drained out of ideas to write or speak?

And after doing a little bit of research on the same made me realize that what phase of blogging I was going through is what exactly means this term “Writers Block”.ย ย 

Definition of Writers Block goes something like this,

Writer’s blockย is a condition, primarily associated withย writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work, or experiences a creative slowdown. The condition ranges in difficulty from coming up with original ideas to being unable to produce a work for years

– Source: Wikipedia

And so I did dig into this topic a little more to see what could be the probable reason for this and how long can this last for an individual?

It was observed that, this could be possibly because of no inspiration, no time or no ideas and it could last for nearly few months and if it goes on to nearly a year-long gap then it will be coined as “Writers burnout”.

I thank god that it was just a block for me than a burnout.. ! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

Anyways, I decided to write a post on this and let everyone know the techniques I used and came out of this phase to get started back again.

  1. Talk to an imaginary Friend – This will definitely help you get some boost to get started all over again.
  2. Stop writing for a while – It’s totally okay. It is alright to stop rather than just write anything that is of no value or crappy altogether.
  3. Take a short trip all by yourself or with your friends – It doesn’t really matter if you can just chill yourself and breathe to feel all alive back again.
  4. Reread your superhero posts – yes, this will definitely get you kick started to start penning your thoughts back again. And for me the post that did the trick for me was this –ย ย Cold Coffee & French Fries.

Hope to get back and groove with you all by reading and writing many more posts to come! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Marriage – Decision Phase.

Hey guys, I apologize for not writing anything for last few days. Was stuck with loads of work in and out. Anyways, hope you all still there to read and support my writings ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, today’s post will be about the phase we go through right before marriage. As most of my friends and me are in a phase of our life, where it is very certain to get notified and be an eligible bachelor to get married. It’s quiet natural to be in the confused state of mind. As to who really is the perfect match for you right?

I hear most of my friends who say out loud that they are getting irritated with this word marriage already. Any thoughts on why this might be happening to them?

As per my understanding, I feel marriage is a very crucial phase in our life. It is such a phase which can either make or break your life. So it very important for us to be careful and choose our partner for life [our better half] very wisely.

And, when we will be in a mindset to take a call on this in a more practical way.. most of the times because of peer pressure from people around you, your relatives, family members, friends, colleagues you end up getting into a state of mind where you get a thought.

God, why do I even have to marry someone. I am doing well all by my own, why can’t everyone just leave me alone.

When you get such thought my friend, I would want you to just seclude yourself from the rest of the world. Stay calm. Sit in a place where it’s only you and no one else to disturb you at-least for sometime. Think over what is the right thing for you to do now?ย What is it that is exactly bothering you?

Is it that any pressure your feeling because of your relatives & family?

Is it that your still not ready to get married?

Is it that you’re not getting the right partner for your life?ย 

Think over it calmly, breakdown your thoughts, analyse it. When you feel your helpless you ain’t really able to figure out what to do I humbly request you to bow down before god almighty and seek his guidance. I am sure he will not let you down. In fact, what I honestly suggest everyone is please keep god in first place no matter what decisions your making in your life. Specially in decisions like marriage, it is really very important.

If you feel that you’re going through a lot of peer pressure – Just let the people who matter to you in your family, relatives or whoever it may be to let them know in what state of mind you are and what is actually bothering you. I am sure, if they care for you they will understand your point of view.

If you feel that you’re still not ready for marriage – Please make it clear to your family members about it at the same time give them a clear understanding why you feel so and by when you think you can be okay to get along with it.

If your feeling thatย you’re not getting the right partner – This is the most trickiest part, there can’t be a generic way of dealing with it. But, if it would be me I would pray to god and ask him to do his will for me, guide me to a person who is the right one for me. I am sure he will lead me to the right one! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am not sure, if this was of some help for you. If it was then please drop your comments and feedback’s, would love to read them ๐Ÿ™‚

Honest thoughts. Happy Reading ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

Point of view.

This is an instinctive post that I am writing today. It just came to my mind when I was watching a movie while I was having dinner with my family this night.

It’s midnight here in India now and I am writing this post, maybe this is why people who know me well call me as nocturnal these days! ๐Ÿ˜€.

Coming back to what I was saying. Situation in the movie was something like this.

A marriage proposal breakup took place because the guy [who is self-centered, only cares about his happiness and he just wants to win and live his life just the way he wants to, he was totally against the word compromise and believed that two people in marriage can be happy only when they are exactly the same] on the other side was this girl [who was exactly opposite of how he was, she always cared about others around her, who believed that she would be happy when everyone along with her is happy and the one who believed if two people in marriage needs to be happy it is not necessary that they should be the same inย  everything].

With this background, it so happened that the guy felt, the girl was making lot of compromises to make herself fit into his lifestyle, his likes & dislikes. She had to leave her dance for him as she was learning it from past 20 years and enjoyed doing it. Little did he know that the girl was doing all this for him only because she clearly knew and saw that her world and priorities with the marriage would be just him and she was doing all that with her wish and was happy doing it.

After all that took place, girl was shattered to pieces when she knew that the guy whom she had started to love and felt that he is the perfect guy for her had left her completely broken with his point of view.

If you try to understand something from this, this just wasn’t the part of only the movie scene I narrated above. It’s almost the same with you, me and everyone around us these days. Rarely, you try to understand what is the point of view of other person in front of you. Based on whatever the situation you are in, you almost tend to build the probable possibilities, foresee things based on your assumptions and give your verdict to the person standing in front of you and just walk away.

If it does happen like this, for sure you will lose the person who was in front you while you passed the verdict because you never gave him/her any chance of understanding his/her point of view.

Well, because of this I see that most of us loosing out on hard-earned relationships be it friends, family, relatives or whoever it is. Only when you express your point of view & allow the one in front of you to express his point of view. Things get clear. Misunderstanding never occur. Every relationship will be a wonderful place to say without any hatred, misunderstandings and heart-aches.

And yes, later part of the movie the girl somehow made him realize he never gave her a chance to express her point of view and when he got to know what the girl’s point of view was about what he had thought about the compromises she was making for him and why she was doing all that for him. Itย was a happy ending to movie at the end.

Live your life. Express your point of view. Allow others to express it too and see how life changes in the best possible ways.

Honest opinion. Feel free to express your opinion about this. Let me know if I have missed out on anything. I will surely be more than happy to look into it.

Happy Reading ๐Ÿ™‚

Liebstar Award – #2

Hey guys, it’s totally an honor to receive this award for the 2nd time. Well, it’s almost been more than 2 weeks having been nominated for this award by this awesome blogger friend of mine Avni. Thank you so much for nominating me for this award and I honestly apologize for delay in responding to this as I was damn caught up and stuck in my work.

Avni has already made her presence felt across many fellow bloggers already because of her humble and kind nature. You guys should definitely check out her blog 11avni11 she’s a sweet little 15-year-old girl who honestly writes all that pops up to her mind and intends to make her readers feel good & satisfied about what she writes.

Liebster Award

Itโ€™s an award in which bloggers nominate other bloggers for showing respect to their works and their dedication. Itโ€™s an appreciation and recognition for all the fellow bloggers out there in the blogosphere.

Let’s get back and answer the questions asked By Avni!

1. Day Or Night? – It’s a little difficult to answer this question for me to be honest with this. Day – Gives me an opportunity to start a fresh and keep hoping. Night – Gives me an opportunity to spend some lone time & find peace within myself.

2. Coffee Or Ice cream? – Coffee for sure. Because, In one word – I just love it.

3. Winters Or Summer? – Winters it is. Simply because I love winter season as all the activities related to Christmas begins and there will be Carols, Christmas Sweets, Celebrations everywhere, Cake and so on.. ๐Ÿ˜€

4. High School Or University? – Yet again, it’s really difficult for me in some situations to choose between two. Like in the case of Day & Night and now this. Let me reason out why.. High School – Nostalgic! days which remains in one’s memories for the rest of our lives. University – Teenage time where in you undergo all sort of emotional battles and you’re in phase of transition from amateur teenager to a mature young adult. These two-phase being one of the most memorable days of my life. I really can’t opt between one and thus explained both of it.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

5. Dancing Or Singing? – Singing for sure. Being able to play guitar and sing along.. Dancing has never been my cup of tea.

6. Reading Or Writing? – Both again.. (I’m so sorry breaking your rule of choosing just one ๐Ÿ˜› ) Reading – It makes me feel good basically when I get along and connect with the other person has penned down. Writing – It lets me ease out my emotions in times of joy, in times of stress and so on.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

7. Children Or Parents? – OMG! Avni.. this question is surely like “Which one do you like the most? Your Left Eye or Right Eye?” ๐Ÿ˜› (Of-course, to a married man though). I being single, I have all the liberty to choose Parents as of now as I don’t have any children yet.. ๐Ÿ˜›

On a serious note. Children and Parents when they get older and older as we grow up.. They both are just one and the same. Their isn’t much difference between them if we look at them right? One request to all those who are reading this note.. please please take care of your parents when they start getting old in the same way as they managed to take care of you when you were a kid. We know it too right? we had no clue of what to we wanted at that moment but they still managed to understand it and provide us with it just to keep us happy and satisfied. If at all we attempt to just to do a little bit of what they did for us. Then, no doubt they will have their best of time in their old age. ๐Ÿ™‚

8. Street Art Or Paintings by Professionals (eg. Mona lisa, starry night)? – Street Art – No specific reason to it. Just like them.

9. Instagram Or Facebook? – Instagram – Because it is filled with only pictures that talk to me much closely and I connect with it well than I do with Facebook these days.

10. Hill stations Or Beaches? – Beaches for sure. I love the incomparable peace we get by seeing those tides running towards us and leaving us behind with a subtle touch. Gushing sound of tides, morning sunrise and evening sunset makes me feel happy within. ๐Ÿ™‚

11. What do you like the most about India? (Your views about India). – India being my country! I love it the most. Their isn’t just one thing that I love the most about India. There are many things of course. Being such a diversified country with huge masses living together and talking in various languages but still are together living in one piece of land and that is India to me. Diversified with different cultures but united with one proud though that we are Indians! and this I love the most.

In the end. Thank you so much again Avni for giving me this opportunity to answer these amazing questions. I really enjoyed it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cry out.

I am writing this post today. Not because of any specific reason, but just to express myself and what I truly feel sometimes.

Being human it’s true every one of you go through hardships, troublesome time, confused, do something which you don’t want to do but eventually have to do because there is no other go, may it be for your good or bad, completely pressurised and won’t understand how will you ever be able to look up and face the world around you.

Just because of this reason that you are surrounded with so many people around you. It’s natural to hold yourself back and make yourself strong enough that you appear all rock solid, emotionally stable and strong human in front of everyone and also you tend to prove it to yourself. True. Undoubtedly, you must get strong to face the world around you.

But, amidst of all this there comes a time when you feel deep down within you that all you want to do once is TO CRY OUT LOUD.

You know, it’s really very difficult to actually cry your heart out when your surrounded with so many people who care about you, who can’t see you break down like that and that’s why you stand up again and cry within yourself in the closet of your own self, without letting anyone know that you actually did cry out some-night, some-day or whenever possible.

But, doing this will burden your heart more and more. As days pass by, you will seem to be rock solid in front of everyone except for the one person and that one person is YOU who knows that even you want to cry yourself out and lighten yourself.

Trust me when I say this, when you really make some time for yourself and spend some time alone and rethink, relieve yourself from such heartaches by crying yourself out is when you actually feel much much better.

I wish, I could do that too sometime soon. You should also try this out and maybe then you may feel much much better before crying your heart out.

To all the brave hearts out there, who are staying strong for themselves, their family, their close ones, their friends or be it for anyone you love.

Honest opinion. Not being judgemental. But trying to be practical. ๐Ÿ™‚

Fear of Replacement.

Don’t you all feel. It is really true. Everyone at some point. Come across this fear of being replaced. Be it among your friends at school, college. Be it among your colleagues at office. Be it among any group of people whom you would never want to lose.

It’s okay. It’s nothing-but-natural. Sometimes even if you are not like that. Back of your mind. Inevitably you start thinking in that direction.

But, the fact is. There is no necessity or any requirement for you to have any fear of being replaced or forgotten. All you need to do is understand a very simple fact. No matter who you are connected with. Be it anyone your friends, colleagues or anyone. If you are really connected. You should never fear about being replaced.

Because. If a person is really connected with you or you are connected with someone. It’s a bond that gets generated which can never be broken unless you break it on purpose.

In the course of being anxious and fearful of being replaced. More often it so happens that you tend to break the bond on your own. By reacting to unnecessary circumstances. By being anxious about something unwanted or not so necessary thing related to the person with whom your fearful from being replaced with.

So, it’s always advisable to go with the flow. Trust your intuition. Believe in Time. These will definitely help you overcome all these anxiety, restlessness, fear-fullness of being replaced.

Trust the bond because of which your connected with one another. Believe in your intuition and timing. Rest will fall in its place. For sure. You will overcome the fear of being replaced.

I have put-forth my thoughts about this fear that almost every one of us will come across at-least once in our life. Do let me know your thoughts and views on the same.

Happy Reading! ๐Ÿ™‚
