Digressing Daily! (Using A 4-Year-Old Draft for Life Updates)

Normally, our lives seem normal, dull and mundane. and every day we pray to god to find some spunk. That is our one truth, what’s normal for us is: praying for the extraordinary.

As confusing as that maybe, I was aiming for the not normal blog beginning. And I think I achieved that. “Sitting at the work desk trying to achieve impossibly set goals, the mind wanders.”

Proof
Proof of Laziness 😉

I honestly cannot remember how this post must have started. A small rant for my restless mind maybe, guessing from the first title it had. I tried to work on this draft so many times. Because I usually have so many thoughts stirring up in ye ol’ noggin. (my brain). The fact that I need to explain my words, I believe is an indicator of how out of sync I am. This is the kind of overthinking is what I’m talking about. :p

So here is a life update – I shifted to a new room on the 2nd of September, which is why I haven’t been posting as much as I would have liked to. I cleaned the room, put my things away and even had my housewarming last night! These were the invitations I sent out. Everyone loved them and on my Instastories too.

Between the room, and prepping for the party, I didn’t find much time to write. I cooked food almost all day on video call following my mother’s instructions, who is a great cook. It was nothing fancy but the food was devoured by everybody which is a good sign. Everyone had a great time, and I was glad I had friends in a foreign country to share in my happiness. I truly felt warm last night. Here are some pictures:

I needed to explain my absence before going back to the regularly scheduled programming. I also might have another set of good news, and I will share as soon as I get the green signal from higher forces ;). Not to be too cheesy, but I’ve had a good first week in the new room. I have been happier and more productive and all I can hope for is that it keeps bringing me the good vibes.

This was a mish-mash of all things that have been currently happening in my life and the stuff that I wrote down forever ago (remember the first part of this post? Yeah, me neither. That was Wise-Saloni). But the title is still apt! Which is incredible because I digressed from the main topic so many times. That was the crux of my original post too, and I delivered four years later too. Hope this wasn’t too much of a random post. Hope you guys have a great day. 🙂

Talk to Me

Talk to me and I will not let your words drown in silence!


Do you have someone you talk to? Someone who will listen carefully, and then give their advice. Help you through difficult or tough situations? In this post, I’m proposing that I would listen if you talk to me. I will not be silent if you share your deepest desires, secrets or regrets either. Share. Have a great day. 😄

Share this with a person who is your rock. Or that person who you would love to listen to. Leave your thoughts below.
This I posted a few days ago on my Instagram account. You can follow along for more impromptu posts and Instastories about the food that I cook/eat, about the places I visit and more from my daily life.

Mystified!

Honey,
You’ve made me a mystic
I belong to you in letter and spirit.
With my words, I claim to find you
While in my soul you already reside.
I am lost and found with you beside.
.
.

Focusing on spreading the language of love. Having someone be a part of you, and claiming it for all!

Balm

Darling,
you
are the
balm
to my
sorrows
and the
salvation
to my
soul.


It is a true expression of how much someone could mean to you. This can also easily be used as wedding vows. So, this will be Vintage Vows Post #1! 🙂

This piece was first posted on the blog in June 2018. On Flashback Frirdays, I repost some of my favorite pieces since more people can see it now. Or so I hope since WordPress has been restricting engagement with posts too!

Honey,

I wear these scars with pride.

They’re a reminder of every battle I’ve won!


Each scar could be a representation of the obstacles you have crossed to achieve something. It is hard work and challenging to do new, out of the box things. So the protagonist is proud of their scars. It was first published on the blog in May 2018.

Throwback Thursday 14.3.2019

I have not done one of these in such a long time! It seems unreal, and I feel just as giddy posting my old work out in the world. Well, they say face your fears. So here we are, with this article from 2009. It was for an English class assignment. All I remember is that we were probably asked to choose our own topic. Obviously, I chose something really wise and grown up. The article reads beautifully if I do say so myself. It is called “Simply Read Not, Take Up”. Like I said, quite a grown-up piece.

I had a lot of fun reading it yesterday when I found some of my old papers. The article is redundant at places and there are some corrections that I may have made sometime after actually writing it. It is about peace, and you can see it was written by a fourteen-year-old. And I would have exceeded the word limit. Fun fact: Word limits existed only for me and two other girls in my junior high class! However, with all my Throwback Thursdays on Vintage Sapience I can say just one thing – I am glad I got better with time. At least that is what I tell myself!

Is there something you did in the past that is a funny anecdote? I would love to know. Thanks for reading.

-Saloni

Here lies…

If you’re looking
for the girl who wrote poetry,
she died. And here she lies,
with a head full of ideas
and a smile brimming with life.
She left her stories behind.
She’ll still be here if you care
In her truest words, in the black and white.


For the prompt: Write 5 lines that would appear on your epitaph. I’m posting daily on Instagram @sv__poetry! I never felt that I was so good to write for my own epitaph. But wanted to be so meta as to do that for the challenge. In our culture, we don’t have burials or epitaphs, which made this even more unique for me. Leave comments about what your preference should be for the words on your stone.
