Light At The End Of The Tunnel

*This is a guest post by my husband, Harin. These lines resonated so well with my attitude towards life, that I couldn’t help sharing it*

Everyone goes through a tunnel, once in a while in their journey of life. While some are blink and miss, others are dark, stinky and dreary. Some teach us lessons, change our perspective while others make us feel alone, isolated and stoic. Our belief says there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

However, a small curve doesn’t show how far and tedious the journey is going to be. We use our full might in a hope to see the light, as the journey becomes long we will be slowly consumed by the darkness, darkness which tremors our belief and confidence. Darkness which pushes us to a corner and beats our soul in to pulp. Darkness which throws us in to a never ending bottomless pit of stoicism.

Imagine, A World Where…

Imagine a world where, people would live life, instead of just making a living. Where their lives wouldn’t be limited to work and bills, weekends and chores. A world where we’d all remember to pause and breathe once a while, where we’d need no breaks from the ordinary, because we’d find extra ordinary in ordinary too. Where we wouldn’t have to plan living well in advance, and live each day, one day at a time.

Imagine a world where people would always love themselves. Nobody would put themselves down. A world where we’d all be so madly in love with ourselves, that we’d never let anyone put us down. A world where self love would come so naturally, that we’d need no reminders that we are amazing just the way we are.

5 Things You Should Stop Telling Yourself

People are watching. The one concern that’s made many self conscious, to a point where they don’t get to live free. Unlike what you think, people aren’t actually watching as you walk by the pavement or slip and fall off one. People are all too obsessed with their own lives, to be noticing you, unless you actually do something to grab their attention. If you do make a fool of yourself and people do watch, they will forget it in a few minutes. People have too many things in their own life to handle, to be obsessed about yours.

Be a child again! Things to learn from children

With each passing day, the world seems to be getting a little crazier. We’re all so busy running races, chasing the impossible, battling our emotions, fighting ourselves and each other, that we’re defeating the very purpose of living – to live, to breathe, to just be! At any given time, there are a hundred thoughts clouding our mind, ghosts hiding under our beds, and dreams that rust in bruised corners of our hearts.

Life lessons I learned from driving

I’ve been feeling philosophical of late, probably something to do with me turning another year older. As I lurk deeper into the same old questions that I often ask myself, about life and its purpose, I find myself getting productive on days like today. Driving home from work, the skies looked unusually beautiful today. Shades of orange and purple spread through a blue and grey canvas, further till my eyes could see. Unfortunately however, I couldn’t afford to continue staring at it for long, unless I planned to join the angels in the same sky, by giving less attention to the road and more above. A beautiful evening, an unavoidable drive and a lurking curiosity about life, set me thinking, and I realized, the life lessons driving could teach me.
