Long time, No see !

Being away from blogosphere, feels like being away from my friends and family. In this interim time, I have managed to be in touch with my writing and have many thoughts to be shared on this space.

I still remember my initial days on WordPress – when knowing every new blog & the blogger behind was such a magical experience! I’d be agog to receive a like or a comment on my posts and it would make me elated beyond limits 😀 It made me believe that we are all connected by an invisible bond of friendship and the human touch in all forms of interaction is something that is invincible.

Returning back to writing on my blog, feels like homecoming. As Charles Dickens has very eloquently said :

I relish every bit of this homecoming. To my wonderful blogging family – I have missed you all !

Hugs & Love ❤

Mirror to my soul . . .

Trust the one who can see the sadness in your smile decoding happyness

All of us wear masks at one point in time or the other. Masks of being happy, being sane and normal, being ‘okay’ when we don’t exactly feel the same way within. There are very few people who can see our real selves just by looking into our eyes or from the sound of our ‘hello’. These are the people we needn’t pretend to. With whom we can shed our inhibitions and laugh till our tummy hurts or weep till the sunlight hurts our eyes. They are the mirror to our souls. They show us the turmoil and chaos within us, when at times we lie to our own selves. They are the people who love us unconditionally and understand us more than we do understand ourself at times. Their mere presence is a soothing ointment to our distressed soul.

If you have even one person, who can see the pain behind your masked smile, your being ‘okay’ or the naughty thoughts behind your crooked smile, you are truly the luckiest person 🙂 

Silent hours of the empty nights


Silent empty hours FRIENDS Rachel Green

 

Silent hours of the empty lonely nights,
Tears that stream down my cheeks,
While I stare in the space infinite,
Trying to draw pictures of you and me together,
A heart beat skipped,
When I randomly come across pieces of you,
All this, and so much more;
Have now become my best friends . . .


P.S.: Dedicated to all F.R.I.E.N.D.S. lovers ❤  Somehow, I wasn’t able to find the right image to go along this little poem of mine. I randomly surfed through several episodes of my favorite TV series FRIENDS and found the perfect one to go along – ‘The One With The List’; where Ross makes ‘the list’ about the not so good things about Rachel describing her as “spoiled, ditzy, too into her looks, and just a waitress” – but when he comes to Julie, all he can manage is: “She’s not Rachel”. They break up that night, leaving them both shattered and empty, staring out of the raining window, perhaps looking for pieces of their soul.

Which is your favorite F.R.I.E.N.D.S. moment and why ? Do let me know in the comments below 🙂

Gratitude Fills My Heart

21st Sept is celebrated as “World Gratitude Day”. Unfortunately, I got to know about the same, just today. But, regret not ! It is always better to be late, than never. Let us celebrate this wonderful week as “Gratitude Week”, thanking the people who fill colours in the rainbow of our lives and bring light and love to our being.

Thank you so much for being a wonderful blessing in my life 🙂 Life is a bundle of gifts in all forms. I am thankful to every person I have met in this journey of life who has made me the person I am today.

I am thankful to my wonderful blogging community – my friends without borders of nations – who have helped me realise, my love for writing and have never failed to encourage me with their love and support.

I thought to myself, as to what can be a better way to celebrate this day than by thanking God for the presents he has showered upon me.

Here is my #ThankYouGod list :
