Wise Words Wednesday: July 8, 2020

Darling, there is no one metaphor that can define you. You are a world unto yourself!

Some positivity for today. I rarely use my own stuff for Wise Words Wednesday but I guess this is inspiring. It always is for me. Hope you have a great day and a great week ahead. Art by @callmealyne on Instagram.

I am posting my poetry and pieces on Instagram daily and some tidbits about my life too.

Wise Words Wednesday: June 10, 2020

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”
― Barack Obama

Hope all of you have a good day! 🙂

June 10 is an important date for me, and finding any inspiration today is crucial for keeping my mind off things. This quote is, in general, a very inspiring one that drives you to be focussed. Wise Words Wednesdays are back and hopefully, I am back too. For good this time. Life has been a little overwhelming and even though I have nothing big to report, things have been happening. I will do another update post soon. These posts keep me updated about my current state of mind when I put my feelings into words. And, to explain my sporadic absences from the blog too. Because the blog has been one of those constant things in my life that brings me satisfaction and happiness.

Wise Words Wednesday: June 3, 2020

“I love blackness, it is stunning, majestic, inspiring but it is also not here to serve non-black people when it suits them via sports, music, hairstyles, entertainment etc. It should be respected in the workplace and shouldn’t be ignored when it’s crying out in fear of being killed.⁣

You really want that utopian ideal of what our world could be? You want to be proudly and ACTIVELY anti-racist, more than fearing being called a racist? I want that for you too.⁣ If so, then do the work, educate yourself and others stand by us loudly, consistently, FOREVER.”

Clara Amfo

After seeing everything that has been happening in the world, I wanted to do my bit by showing my solidarity for the cause. After George’s death, social media has been flooded with articles, posts and videos standing up to the gross misconduct and racial injustices that the black people face every day. None of us should ever have to go through any harassment because of the colour of our skin, and that is why a united front for equality is so important! Have a good day everyone. May you have the strength to face all the obstacles that life throws at you.

Don’t worry if you’re making waves simply by being yourself. The moon does it all the time.
– Scott Stabile

I used to find, and collect and write down quotes from everywhere. I am from the newspaper generation where Sunday used to be a quote extravaganza. I am not that old :P. Some of my murals (haha – diaries) are still somewhere safe at home. During the transition period to online and all access Google search, I somewhat lost my practice of doing that consistently. I still do it for Wise Words Wednesday but not so consistently.

That is when I found this quote by Scott Stabile and I was blown away by the trueness and enormity of it. It is so beautiful, and since the moon has a special meaning in my heart it touched me so much more. With this quote, I hope everyone feels empowered and can do the things that come to you truly. Being yourself is crucial!

Have a nice day.

Wise Words Wednesday (Nov 27, 2019)

The greatest lovers are like twin blooms, each reflecting the passion and the glory of the other.

Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I was in a weird funk last week! This week has been almost back to normal. But some things happened that changed so many of my views, for better or for worse. I hate being cryptic here, but the quote should be helpful as a hint. Anyway, A quote about a new love for Wise Words Wednesday. Hope you have a lovely day! 🙂

Wise Words Wednesday (Nov 20, 2019)

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
– Edith Sitwell


A winter coat (quote)! All puns intended on this blog. It is the time for winter for all of us in the Northern hemisphere and I could not be happier. I love the wintertime so much more than the sweltering summers. Don’t get me wrong, summers are glorious! But winters for me are magical – the cosiness, the food and the general vibe is pleasant. So this Wise Words Wednesday we are celebrating the winter season.

Have a great day!

Wise Words Wednesday (Nov 12, 2019)

“The Seven Social Sins are:

Wealth without work.
Pleasure without conscience.
Knowledge without character.
Commerce without morality.
Science without humanity.
Worship without sacrifice.
Politics without principle.
From a sermon given by Frederick Lewis Donaldson in Westminster Abbey, London, on March 20, 1925.”
― Frederick Lewis Donaldson


I was working on something related to conscience and felt like it would make for a great theme for Wise Words Wednesday this week. In fact, it would be a great topic to discuss on the blog in general, because it is open to interpretation and yet it is something that we define so strictly.

I am also promising myself that I will not miss any WWW posts because that will help me be more punctual and regular about the posts on the blog. And God knows I’m slacking, haha. Even Insta will stop being inspirational for me and I am thankful that writing and this blog is my safe place and therapy. Thank you for reading. I am thinking of making this even more personal so that it can soothe me, help me keep sane. I will decide soon, but hope all of you have a good day today! 🙂

“You will never ‘find’ time for anything. If you want time, you must make it. ”
Charles Buxton

“Whether it’s the best of times or the worst of times, it’s the only time we’ve got.”
Art Buchwald

“You can’t turn back the clock. But you can wind it up again.”
Bonnie Prudden

These quotes are excellent no doubt, but they are a little bit for me! Right now, I’ve been wasting a ton of time, not being focused on work and maybe a little bit uninspired by certain aspects of my life. That is no excuse because the things I’ve undertaken will take a long time and a good amount of effort. So, hoping that these inspire you and me both to be a little more productive today and in the days to come!

Have a good day! 🙂 Smile a lot.

Wise Words Wednesday 11.09.19

“A house is made of bricks and beams. A home is made of hopes and dreams.”

“Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong, and laughter never ends.”

Couldn’t agree more with this quote today. I guess I just am in that mood where I really miss home some days. Reading these quotes help me cope and understand that the other things I am doing are just as important. And that any place could feel like home if we just felt like it. Maybe my new room comes with the home vibes.

Hope you guys have a great day 🙂
