Unloved

In life, we come across many times when we feel unloved. Thoughts such as “Nobody loves me”, “Nobody cares about me”, “Nobody has ever truly loved me” and “Nobody ever will love me” surface our minds and fill our lives with dark clouds. In those times, even though we cannot find any proof of being loved by anyone to convince ourselves of the existence of love in our lives, it’s comforting to know that we are so wrong. So so wrong.  Life is really too short to be living questioning love rather than believing in it every single day. Happy…

It was not always all smiles

Yes. This was the unfortunate truth of life. It was not always possible to be a smiley face. It was also not always possible to be a sad face either. Two months ago, I started questioning some things. If I am really considered “lucky” (as per my life horoscope), how is being sick lucky at all?

In the deepest corners of your heart where reality resides, warmth fills in what’s…

We work towards basic things like education, career, money and family. Without realization, every day, we run towards something. And why? Because we want that something. We think that it is important to us and it probably is…. However, when I sit down with myself every day, I do not feel that the longest path in life is to any of these things even though it…

What do you care to notice?

You know there are times in your life when you just try something new. Like getting out of your own house and going for a walk lol. Then you walk around actually paying attention to the things around you. Like the changing color of the leaves, random mushrooms growing in random places, the sun playing around and hiding behind the clouds every few seconds, the huge water puddles that make you wonder how much did it actually rain last night, the flowers stuck somewhere between summer and fall, the everyday paths decorated with leaves that crumble with a crunchy sound…
