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.

Mother

I resonate with you
As you brought me to life.
You represent an emblem of sacrifice
And of love, boundless and infinite.
Poem or praise falls short, as an ode
To a mother is who is a god!

I remember writing this for Mothers’ Day and I should have sent it to her but I don’t do the mushy stuff! Haha. I sent her a lot of other messages that I’m sure meant the world to her but could not make up for the geographical distance we had this time around. A huge thanks to my mom who has always loved me, trusted me and made me a good human being. I can only hope to be as strong, and confident as she is. Because she has sacrificed a lot to see us happy! Every day we should thank our moms, but here is just another reason to do this today. If you haven’t done so, tell your mom you love her!

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

Alcohol

The first and the last time I drowned my sorrows was for your sins!


How we choose to drown our sorrows, or celebrate our happy moments is our own choice. Sometimes alcohol helps. To each his own! I’ve believed in that for years now and always will. This post is again a different one for me. Seemed appropriate though. Art by @effenemea have a great day everyone. Thank you for reading. Stay safe and stay home. -Saloni .

“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.

Your calm.

My chaos longs for

your calm.


Well, its Valentine’s Day and I would be remiss to not post on my very lovely blog today. Hope you’re all having a great day with the love of your life, at work, with your best friends, family or just by yourself with pizza and Netflix, because  ‘yay, self-love’.

Another year and I would carefully keep my plans under wraps. Hehe, partly because I’m smack in the middle of my exams and the highlight of my day will be a few calls, some texting, good food and a ton of good music from my forever playlist.

I’ve been gone.

Now that I see my stats for January, they’re better than in December! I guess distance truly makes the blog-heart grow fonder too.

It has been almost two months since I posted something on the blog. These breaks have been more frequent and sporadic in the last few months. If I promise myself that I will post something big and fancy on the blog, I end up missing my deadlines and skip the normal light posts too. For some reason, time and life have been incredible in the last few days and that did not leave me much time to just sit down and write.

It is not like I don’t have time, I while it away! Haha. It really is not funny but it has been happening. For every two productive hours I have, I end up wasting the rest of that day. Youtube, people, and life’s chores are the culprits. I cannot skip the daily chores while living alone which means that I wasted my time on the phone scrolling aimlessly. Or by chatting and talking to an obscene number of people.

Something changed at the end of November, which altered my mood and general outlook towards a lot of things in life and I attribute it to my long time friend P. If it manifests into good things, I will give her all the due credit. But for now, it made me very happy and incredibly bubbly for all the days that I’ve lived since then. You could say that I started experiencing a lot, living a lot, and letting go of a lot. I opened myself up to new, exciting experiences which were a scary but fun rollercoaster. I cannot really share what she told me, or what was the direct consequence of it, but I lived a life that didn’t feel like mine for almost a month! And then I slowly got to normal.

I am not even myself anymore! I am a little bit changed after experiences and feelings, because those were ones that could alter your personality. Don’t get me wrong, I was on adrenaline and life-high! But it was new to me. We went travelling to Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava in December and I will be posting the pictures and blog for that soon. There was also a trip to Harz mountains in Germany that will be a well sought-for post, especially for my friends. I am not the trekking kind of girl, but I went there! It was one of the most transformative trips of my life, along with the other one in December. A shell was cracked, some stuff spilt out, some changed and the highest impact was on the mood and the general vibe of my personality.

Long story short, I will be back to posting, regularly I can hope. And since February is exam month, I will definitely be posting regularly 😀 I am hoping that it will keep on the groove for the next few months while I’m pumped and feeling creative.

So thanks for reading my rant and very vague life update. I don’t share much anyway, and this is a lot considering my habits. But then again, I went through a mini transformation. Nothing is off-limits anymore.

“I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.”
– Ernest Hemingway


This just happens to be my superpower! Listening. And I am good at it. My friends would also vouch for the same thing. Hope we all have friends and people who listen to us so we can have a heart-to-heart. Have a good day!
