Prayer



Many at times we don't realize the power of a prayer. It doesn't need to be an elaborate procedure and one doesn't have to be religious in nature to pray. It could be as simple as a three letter word. To me personally, prayer is synonymous to expressing gratitude to God, just before going to bed. Good, bad and ugly, it doesn't matter how that particular day was. Each event, every aspect of it has something to teach us. Over the course of last few months, I understood the real meaning of self-love as well. Silly to say, but I never gave it a real thought until an event really struck me on my head. It took me sometime to really understand the gravity of it. Honestly, am still grappling with it, slowly inching my way out. What I do now is - to appreciate myself whenever I achieve something noteworthy. I reward myself with positive energy and affirmations that boost my self confidence. I give a pat of my back, talk soothingly (to my inner self) and consider any mistakes kindly. I let go of the nonsensical thoughts that my mind tend to waver to. By the end, all I am left with is enough zeal to face an another day - to learn new things, to be strong, to stay busy and to appreciate life as it comes.

This is to me is the true meaning of prayer - a powerful tool which has the capacity to bring tremendous amount of peace and calm to our body, mind and soul.

what haunts you..



I close my eyes
and I see a tiny past I want to forget
I see an ignorant rebellion
I see a child who refused to grow up
I see innocence wrapped with guilt
..now I wish for a magic wand
to correct the mistakes
but I know that is not possible

am sure time will slowly heal
the wounds I want to bury
until then am just blessed
for all those who love me unconditionally
who manage to bring a smile on my face
..every single day of my life..

morning ritual..


Do you like the cup? I got a plain white cup from a thrift store and hand painted it. :-)

"The sun is new each day." ~ Heraclitus 

..so is mine.

Funny how my morning ritual changes from time to time, depending upon where I am. When working in DC, for two years I ate this breakfast from Cosi, every single morning without missing a day. Then I moved on to this and then this.

Right now, my mornings are more meditative in nature. It is like I hit a reset button to erase all the things (that can be ignored) from the previous day so that I start afresh; as if God has given me another opportunity to get it right! I wake up by 6 am and brew a hot cup of masala tea + read newspaper along with it. This is my *me* time and I never start the day without it. By 7, the huzz-buzz of the day starts and it just continues till I hit the bed in the night. It is like a never ending cycle and that is the reason I treasure my mental reset button so much. It gives me the energy and right frame of mind to carry on with the day without any excessive baggage. A new addition to the to-list is to pen a few words for #writealm before the day ends. Quietness of the night steers new thoughts in me yet again and its refreshing to write before sleeping instead of staring at my Iphone screen until my eyes hurt. (one of many not-so-good habits am trying to stay away from!)

mirror mirror..



..mirror mirror
do you see an error
tell me the truth
from my heart, shall I uproot
the things I hate
or else leave it to fate
or take some action
for peace and contemplation...
