Love Yourself

It’s when we meet heart-heart with ourselves we realize who we are really meant to be.

Love Yourself is exactly about that.

Self Love: The Beginning

Whenever I feel confused in life, I go to the library and start typing. It takes a lot of effort to get out of your office chair and into your life one. I wasn’t going to go out on lunch today. But then i realized I’ll be caught in this web of work with things flying in my head from every direction about what I still have to do. I would never be able to solve any of it because I am waiting on others but it would keep me worried. I am not having as much fun because i…

There are many types of times. Some might just break them down into good and bad. I haven’t really written for my blog in a really long time. I don’t know what to write either. Few days ago I looked at my WordPress Reader after a long time. Reader is the place you see articles from blogs you follow. Some are seeing the arrival of Spring and some are sighing about the arrival of Autumn in their lives. We are all in the same world in completely different seasons at the same time. Winter has been great. We had a few…

There isn’t time.

There isn’t time, So brief is life. For bickerings, apologies, heart burnings, callings to account. There is only time for loving, And but an instant, so to speak, for that. – Mark Twain It has been a perfect day. I am writing this untitled post like so many others I have written in this lifetime. I am enjoying a set of burning candles beside me. It’s like Diwali to my right. On the left is a bit colder view. It’s raining against the windows in a slanted fashion. The windows are open so the curtains are moving with the breeze.…

Can you trust the water?

Written on July 23, 2015 It has been a few years since I made the decision to learn swimming. Few years ago, I had started taking swimming lessons and found myself going absolutely nowhere with it. Looking back though, I have come very very far. Long long time ago, the thought of water had scared me. “The waves will come and take you with them” is what the voice in my head would say. “You will drown and die. Just like that.” But I had always watched people swim. They always looked so cool. Ever since I was little, I…

Love Yourself (4/4)

Written in February 2016 I understand that in the society we live in today it’s quite scary to be single and you know, “alone.” Everywhere you go people are either with their significant other or in families. Be it restaurants, weddings, parties. People come at least in pairs. A few years ago when I had gone to a Christmas party alone, a person there had asked me, “You came to the Christmas party alone?” “YES” was my solid answer with a very sweet smile. Not even taking it to heart. What was wrong with it anyways? If something is important…

Love Yourself (3/4)

Written on July 22, 2015 There was a time when a cherry’s bitterness felt way too bitter. It was nice to have everything sweet. A hint of bitterness was too much to disrupt the sweetness in my mouth. It was an unenjoyable taste. Bitter. A long time ago, I wrote about the longest path in life. It has been a year since I decided to change my life. 5 years since I realized that even though I had everything I wanted in life, I still wasn’t happy. A lifetime since I have been searching for my purpose in life. The…

Love Yourself (2/4)

Written on July 16, 2015 It has been a really long time. We never met. The habit of writing the date before starting an article makes me happy. There was a time when having to write down the date in every single class every single day for every single chapter felt like the most annoying thing in the world. Today, it comes naturally. Like putting on your undergarments before your clothes. To have my words stuck in time on a particular day and time makes me feel safe. At one one point in life, I felt this way. At one…

Love Yourself (1/4)

Written on Mar 22, 2015 As we grow up, we tend to lose ourselves. We begin to doubt our potential. Worse, we try to be like other people; people who are perhaps considered more “normal” by society. We forget to look at and appreciate our own uniqueness and then we wonder who we really are. Many thoughts go on in our mind…. Am I really a person? Does anyone notice me? Am I visible? Does anyone love me? Does anyone care about me? We lose ourselves. Worse, we lose the ground we are standing on. It took me a really…

The Embarkment

Hi subscribers, It’s been a while. I have been away for a long time and will probably continue to be. It is because my Summer has begun. At least in my mind, it has. It began a while ago with a difficult decision to head to California with a friend I hadn’t seen in years. I contacted her a month before and she simply said, “Let’s do it! Let’s go!” After much thinking, we booked our flights and decided to take care of the rest later. It was something I wanted to do for a long time and even though…
