Be Proud of Who You Are


Quote of the day: 
Align yourself with people that you can learn from, people who want more out of life, people who are stretching and searching and seeking some higher ground in life.
-Les Brown



It's a beautiful morning.
And I am up earlier than usual...

Bright lights turned on.
A yellowish effect...the sun would later imitate.

A little ritual of sorts.
Dispels the awkward moment.

Refreshed. Rejuvenated. Reawakened.


Peace & Love.

Sunny Side


Quote of the day: 
Would you rather live your life according to the approval of others or aligned with your truth and your dreams. 
-Robin S. Sharma




“You know those moments when everything is exactly the way it was meant to be? When you find yourself and your entire universe aligning in perfect synchronization, and you know you couldn't possibly be more content? I was inside that very moment, and fully conscious of it.” -Alice Clayton

Hi ya folks.

Here's wishing you a great week ahead.
I am learning to let go of unhappiness...on a daily, and focusing on the sunny side of things.

What are you learning to let go of? Wish you all the best with that.

Peace. Love. Light*

To The New Friends



Quote of the day: 
There's nothing more inspiring than the complexity and beauty of the human heart. -Cynthia Hand


To the new friends
Who become less of strangers.

To the white and grey clouds
Floating and being carefree.

To the sweet scented memories
That hauls us back to the past.

To the special music
That strengthens us even more.

To the joy & laughter
That warms us deep inside.

To the new friends
Who become more of family.

Raindrops In Tears


Quote of the day:
I was smiling yesterday,I am smiling today and I will smile tomorrow.Simply because life is too short to cry for anything. 
-Santosh Kalwar


Outside the window pane.
The raindrops are my tears.
The lightning brings flashbacks...
Memories that can never be erased.

When do we end this race...
Running all the days of our lives.
Only to be left behind in the end.

We stand to be heroes amongst men.
Our voices get drowned in shallow rivers.

Never felt so alone until this moment.
Never was so cold until you left.
Another day, more raindrops and tears.

*An old poem, with some lines edited.


Peace. Love. Light*

Eternal Frequency


Quote of the day:
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add colour to my sunset sky. 
-Rabindranath Tagore


Each day.
Long before the sun makes it's appearance.

I arise.
I sit in silence.

I Inhale.
I Exhale.

A Slow intake of air through the nose
Followed by a gust of wind through the mouth

I tap into the energy.
Floating about in the universe.

It's there in abundance.
But not so many are even aware.


Peace & Love!

Find Yourself


Quote of the day: 
Finding oneself and one's path is like waking up on a foggy day. Be patient, and presently the fog will clear and that which has always been there can be seen. The path is already there to follow. 
-Rasheed Ogunlaru


Find yourself.
And when you do.
Find yourself again...
And again.

Dwell in forgiveness.
So as to make room.
For healing...
Find your inner peace.

Dwell in joyfulness.
The special place within your soul.
That keeps you calm and content.

Dwell in peace.
With positive vibrations.
Which are in tune with your aspirations.

Dwell on the present.
Seek and find your element.
Your thoughts will shape you in the end.


Peace & Love always!

The Love In Happiness


Quote of the day: 
Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different.
-C. S. Lewis

Everything will change eventually.

But daily, maybe not so much.
It is possible for our thoughts, attitudes, habits, relationships, and way of life to change overtime, even as our daily tasks remain unchanged. Or vice versa.

Each day I set aside a little laughter, a little happiness from my limited reserve. I do this because I am aware it could get emptied quickly (stress, negativity, pain) or even multiplied ten fold (making people feel good about themselves, helping others, and just being satisfied and content with your life in general...

There's beauty, happiness, forgiveness, hope, love, laughter and so much more in each day -attributes I am still striving to practise on a daily.

Looking back, things have indeed changed, lessons learned and now I tend to appreciate every little moment and spend time wisely.

Don't wait for tomorrow to begin your goal or dreams. Start right now, so that by tomorrow you'll be one step closer to achieving everything.

Plant seeds of happiness each day, so that when you look back and everything else has changed...love & happiness would be the only things still constant.

Each month, every single day is a blank script.
Guess who the scriptwriter is?


Peace & Love always!

Live/Love/Leave



Quote of the day: 
Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.
-Steve Maraboli


Love cannot be felt when you do not create enough dwelling space for it.
Friendship cannot be sustained when there's no mutual respect.

If you look within and nothing moves you.
If your heart has no song left to sing.
If your self worth is no longer priceless...

Then it is time.

Time to unfreeze your deep rooted emotions.
Time to eliminate your self doubts and inhibitions.
Time to make room for love to float back in...endlessly.

So let the bright sun, with subtle warmness heal you.
Let the hatred within start to melt away like chocolate.

Let the healing process begin before it's too late.

Breathe In.
Let go.
Breathe out.

Evict pain.. Embrace Love.


Nice month ahead folks!

More Of Everything


Quote of the day:
This is how most people live: alive, but not conscious; conscious but not aware; aware, but intermittently.
-Sebastian Faulks


I am more aware...

Of my surroundings.
Of the vastness of my emotions.
Of the randomness of my thoughts.
Of the power of my dreams.
Of the vividness in my expectations. 
Of the immortality in meditations. 
Of the battles fought and lost.
Of the missing links to recovery.
Of the obstacles in my pathway. 
Of the shortcuts that lead to nowhere.
Of the inner jewels awaiting discovery. 
Of the beauty in my abilities.
Of the aura that surrounds me.
Of the enlightenment that awaits me.


Peace & Love always!

Past Is Past


Quote of the day: 
Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
-Søren Kierkegaard


My silence,
Lingered on,
Long after your departure,
I felt the muteness in my heart.


Strange as it felt,
The stillness comforted me,
A ticking clock in the distance awakened me,
I felt the newness in my soul.


The past is the past,
Sand glass overflowed,
Myths and beliefs unfold,
I felt the vastness in the universe.


Great week ahead guys!

Peace & Love!

Quote of the day:
We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal and then leap in the dark to our success.

The Dark Side


Quote of the day: 
I knew nothing but shadows and I thought them to be real. 
-Oscar Wilde


I want to stop listening to the silent voices.
That lurk in the darkest valleys.
And by dark I mean...
A black and white photograph.
Of shadowy silhouettes.
Of moonless nights and...
Of the colour of your eyes.
Of the black dress...and stockings.
Of all our darker sides.
And when the darkness whispers.
When the earth eavesdrops...
Can you hear the raindrops?
In pursuit of distant lights.
If only our echoes could be heard.
Even with questions answered.
We still seek new encounters.
Every breath brings us closer.
Every step takes us further.
In the darkness that envelopes us.
In the light that we forever embrace.
Our thoughts engraved with timeless memories.
The source of which remains unsolved mysteries.


Happy December. 
Peace & Love!
