How are you? 

I am okay/fine.

This is the most fake conversation you are bound to have many times during your lifetime. Yes, think about it. How many times have you used this phrase without speaking the truth? We are stressed, tired, irritated, angry, disappointed but we will say that we are fine.

 

Why do we lie?

Firstly the main reason for doing this is because we want to dodge the next conversation that will happen the moment we say “I’m not okay/fine”. Also, we don’t like sharing our feeling at that very moment with everyone. That is a right thing to do but it’s a small burden you carry lying around people telling them you are fine when you’re not. The people around you will go around their business and will talk normally. They wouldn’t know the storm brewing inside you. They also wouldn’t be able to figure out that you’re crying from the inside.

 

Why would they?

You just said that you’re fine.

Instead of doing all this, why don’t you start to tell the people around you about what you feel. Yes, you don’t need to tell them exactly what the issue is. Just say the words “I am not okay. It’s something I’m dealing with which I cannot discuss”.

Speaking like this helps. First, the people around you are conscious of the fact that you’re not okay. Hence the way they speak will change. If you have a comfort friend, talk to him/her and get it out of your chest. Keeping the storm inside of you won’t stop anything. It is just a delay. This delay will result into a catastrophe someday!

If you cannot divulge any details, it’s fine.

But don’t lie when asked, “Are you okay?”

Okay?

What if God fulfilled a wish every day?
 
Just a random thought cropped in my mind today.
 
What if God has decided that randomly he shall choose a person and whatever he wishes for shall be fulfilled.
 
Just imagine, there are so many instances when we actually wish things go our way and they do.
What if that day God actually wanted to give you what you want.
Also, Imagine you waiting for the train or bus which is late. You wish that it arrived soon so you could go home. And God fulfilled your wish.
Does that make you happy? Yes..
But after you know God would have fulfilled anything you wished for.. Would you be happy? Doubtful..
 
Obviously if we’d know that the almighty would fulfill any wish, we’d definitely ask for something extravagant.
 
Agree?
 
But how many of us would decide to wish for something else like erasure of poverty, wars, debt etc? I think only a few of us would. I’d ask too for something like a never ending bank balance and travel all the time without any worry or get some super power.
 
Either this way or that way there are many such instances when you thought things were not going your way but it just took a u-turn and everything went your way! There’s no explanation for that sometimes, right? What if that day God decided to fulfill whatever you desired?
 
Just a thought.. Think about it.
 
Happy Sunday!

It’s a Wednesday morning and the view from my desk is serene.

The clouds seem like there would be no scope for the sun to shine on today.

It’s 11.15am and it looks like it’s almost 19.00pm.

There’s a lot of rain drops passing by the window pane.

I can hear the sound of the wind and the rain clashing and it’s quite scary if I may add.

So when I watch those drops pass by my window at a fast pace, a random thought just passed by.

There are so many moments and situations we have to go through in life.

Some of them get through in a jiffy while some take longer than they should.

The good moments get done quickly and the sad ones stick to us longer than we want to.

 

Life is like a see-saw. Sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down.

Life is also like a never ending slide.

You’re always in motion. No stoppage in time.

So instead of ranting, dreaming and being tensed, why don’t we just sit back and enjoy the show?

 

Life is not boring. It can give you so many moments where you can laugh at yourself or cry!

For instances,

  1. One of my school friends has a habit of missing a train/plane/bus journey every time he visits us.
  2. You can copy an entire paper including the roll number of the person too ( been there, done that)
  3. We were stranded without a place in Manali for a few hours (actually we hadn’t booked a place either so it fits)
  4. We went to trek in shorts and the temperatures fell below 5 degrees. How sweet, ain’t it?

 

This is just few of the things I could mention which at the time were very serious but now when I look back, I can laugh over it.

Like they say, Life is what you make of it.

So stop being tensed… Just enjoy the show!

And while you’re at it, listen to this song by Lenka. It’s really touching!
