Weekly Photo Challenge~Thankful to GOD

 

Being Thankful to God , is by keeping your feet on the ground even when after you have achieved a lot in life , I really hope this Thanksgiving , people would have thanked God for gifting such a beautiful life , which needs to be valued.
Thats all the simple message I have got in my Bag of quotes for this day …..

The Fading Light of childhood ……

balloons

 

When I was sixteen I dreamt a photograph of balloons in the sky, inflatables of color illuminating the sky with its sheer boldness to be seen. floating up and filling these lungs with helium, breathe in , why don’t you float a little too my dear.

When I was little my favorite bracelet was a balloon tied around my wrist. when the greatest devastation was awakening the next morning to find it at the foot of my bed, lifeless, but still bright. like a tease that maybe it could still make it and fly and I would stand on top of the bed and drop it, watching the descent back down. and it would bounce softly a few times, a delicate loss it was.

Sometimes it’s nice to pull the covers over yourself and hide from the world for a while, sometimes you don’t want to be seen. You don’t want to be bold. The thoughts inside begin to explode like balloons that go off in the sky but we never see that part of the story.

When I was little I would wave them goodbye, say hello to the moon for me.

It is difficult to turn around once you turn on yourself. Sometimes we try and try knowing that it is not our hardest and we do not know why we hold back from the world. maybe in the end there looms catastrophe so we leave a little behind. you can get really close to the edge and still fall over. we have seen our train wreck in the eyes of others. it is not a look that is easily forgotten.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far : Traffic

 

This week s theme is Near & Far ,I really thought a lot about it as in what concept  would really go with it.
and than it clicked my mind,  while I was driving home back from My friend’s home , there was heavy rainfall in the city , and all the roads where flooded , Even though I was near to my home , it seemed Far away.

Usually it takes me 5 min s to reach from my friend’s place to mine , but , it took almost 45 mins , &than I realized , no matter how fast our cars can drive , it won’t help in the real crisis. We can enhance the features of the car , but we cannot increase the dimensions of the land. Its like we have to still achieve something that looks so near yet its far …..

Thought on Traffic :
“A society sufficiently sophisticated to produce the internal combustion engine has not had the sophistication to develop cheap and efficient public transport?’
Yes, boss… it’s true. There’s hardly any buses, the trains are hopelessly underfunded, and hence the entire population is stuck in traffic”
Ben Elton, Gridlock

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong > Freedom is not for granted

 

 

 

Today is our Independence day ,65 years ago, it was the dawn of a new beginning — the beginning of freedom  & this photo represents how people have started taking our freedom just for granted ,its WRONG ,  we were not just given freedom as a charity , we fought for it , lives were sacrificed , we payed for it .

So its my humble request , Let’s not take our Independence for granted, Let’s do our bit to make India A better Place, Legacy to Love for Legacy to die for.

Take journey of exploration ……

 

Most people like to travel. Most people have, at some stage in their life, gone through an internal crisis, where they have been uncertain of their future and which path they should take. Most people love the idea of a journey of self discovery. Most people wish they could have an adventure, preferably in an exotic location and with an attractive tour guide. And if most people don’t like these things, that’s fine, cause I do.

You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now, because you’ll never be this way again.”

Azar Nafisi

 

Your journey could be of anything , it is not bounded by the limitations of locations , or destinations , the real journey is something from which you learn , that touches you beyond your imagination , that changes you for better , the journey we take is not about following a pre-defined path , but about creating that path . Life rarely makes any more sense when things are done  ‘in order ‘ , Life makes sense when we are centered in our own Hearts , & we  let go of resisting  how our own unique journey needs to unfold ,in its own beautiful way…

 

I am gonna add pictures of some beautiful places in here , that shows how much world wants to talk to you in its own way ,

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru

 

Change is scary ….. but is also inevitable …

Change is never easy but it is inevitable , one of the most scariest thing for everyone is going through the changes , it is scary indeed , because change is unfamiliar , it makes you leave your comfort zone .
All the things , life , ways , that you are used to ends .

I have always disliked endings , than it might be the last day of summer vacation ,the finale episode of the season ,  or  the last chapter of your favorite book , parting ways with a close friend , but than there is this Universal Truth we have to face , whether we want it or not , everything eventually ends.

And with every ending , there is this new beginning  . The fresh start of new season , the very first day of your college , or your job , & ofcourse the first days are always the toughest ones , but also the most memorable days , in every ways.

Change is a growth , if we don’t change we are stuck in the same place forever , & we should not do that , it hurts , but it has to be done , Change  is the only constant , that exist in our world !! Whenever you make a change you have to give up something old to make room for something new. This is how the universe works (I believe), constantly seeking balance and equilibrium.

We are slaves of habits , & changing that is difficult , but its not impossible , You learned it somewhere , so yes it is possible to unlearn it , you have to try .They say you can’t learn to swim unless you go in the water. Our brain is powerful. But it is also a trickster. It is constantly thinking. And some of it’s thoughts are irrational. You can change these thoughts.

No matter how you like your old things , your places , you have to let it go , some would part their ways , & some would enter in your life , but yeah some people who are so much a part of us, they’ll be with us no matter what. They are our solid ground. Our North Star. And the small clear voices in our hearts that will be with us … always.

Ultimately, change is about rewriting your story. Take your time , but do not regret the change , just go with the flow , &   after a time period you ll be fine .

Thought of the day :

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
