Get Silly. Add Some Life to Living

It’s easy to get caught in the humdrum of life, feeling like robots. We define ourselves by the work we do and the relationships we share. We’re bound by the idea of how life must be lived, than how we want to live it. We tend to get too serious playing the roles we choose and the tasks we do, forgetting that  we’re all beating hearts and living souls at the end of the day.

* **Lifeline has a special post today, in collaboration with Candace, from Pocketful of Smiles. Candace and I seem to share a similar mindset about life and relationships, hence this collaboration from two different countries, because the essence of life and its musings are just the same, across the world. Do head to her blog, for snippets on life, relationships and all things positive***

Love is easy they say; relationships aren’t. Well, seems like they haven’t found their right one yet, for that’s not what the right ones make you feel. In a world filled with complex emotions and myriad of people, you’re bound to attract both good and bad, right and wrong. How do you know then, that you’re in love with the right person? More often than not, you just know! Despite the practical world we live in, the emotions we deal with and the battles we fight, our hearts just know when the person we’re with, is the right one. Here are a few more signs that you found the right one.

1. They love you for who you are. They love you with all your imperfections and flaws. They don’t lay conditions for you to be more loved. They understand that you’re human, and bound to be imperfect, or make mistakes. They don’t just love you for your good; they accept your bad and ugly sides too. This way, you feel comfortable to be unapologetically yourself with them.

Places I Didn’t Belong

Sitting with that group of friends, laughing out loud. Drinks on the table, and music louder than our words. They laughed, and so did I, despite the fact, that the joke was on me. Again. Deep down, I wanted to just cuddle with my blanket, a book in hand and coffee by my side, yet here I was, surrounded by the cool ones, yet alone. The echo in the conversations, were a painful reminder of how far I had come, to a place I didn’t belong.

Never Put Up With…

As social animals we’re expected to adjust a little, bear a little and put up with things and people, that may not always be in the best of our interest. Sometimes however, it isn’t just important but necessary too, to not put up with some things. Never put up with…

1. Toxic friends. They tend to suck the life out of you slowly, and before you know it, you’ll be a different person. Recognise the signs and bid goodbye.

2. Disrespect. No matter who it comes from. Stand up for yourself.

3. Bad food. Why? It’s a short life, and hunger is what keeps us striving to get ahead.

Hidden In My Tomorrow

“I’ll start tomorrow, I’ll do it tomorrow” I’ve been saying for years. Tomorrow sure seems to be too busy to arrive, for all the things I want to do tomorrow, often stays in tomorrow forever. So I decided to rummage through my tomorrows, and like a treasure stored in a dusty corner, I found treasures of my own, that had been hiding in my tomorrows. Hidden in my tomorrows, I found…

1. That leap of faith I decided to take. Tomorrow never came, and I remained stuck in the same place.

2. That diet I was supposed to start. Tomorrow never came, and I kept finding solace in junk food.
