Wise Words Wednesday 10.25.17

When we’re dealing with the people in our family – no matter how annoying or gross they may be, no matter how self-inflicted their suffering may appear, no matter how afflicted they are with ignorance, prejudice or nose hairs – we give from the deepest parts of ourselves.

Anne Lamott

Family, we realize over the years is everything. Even your closest friends become family and for a few such people, you are willing to sacrifice everything. Their happiness is of profound importance to you. To all of us! So, here’s to the families! And accepting, and loving them with all their quirks 🙂 Have a great day!

Wise Words Wednesday 3.8.17

“There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”

I knew what died meant.

I knew what died meant.

When my clothes didn’t change
But hers did.

When my smile didn’t fade
But hers did.

When blossomed red some rose
But that wasn’t the color she wore.

I wasn’t the strong one.
But she didn’t falter.

I was just a child.
Scraping memories, time beguiled.

Wrapped in a love so fierce
Under a watchful eye.

But I am still a child.
Pondering about the last time she smiled.

My one, loving for two.
Doing for two. Dying for two.

I don’t hate that
I know what died means.

Blogging 201: Best of ‘Vintage Sapience’

December marks the end of a year. For me, it has been eventful, and entertaining. I made a blog, I published at least 9 posts per month and I have been showered by the love and tremendous appreciation of fellow bloggers for my work.

When I see the quality of work that is out there, I am overwhelmed. In such a large pool of talent, my humble blog is getting its share of love! So, this is a thank you to all of my readers. I could not have asked for a better blogging experience.

As part of the Blogging 201: Branding and Growth Tips, I participate in today’s challenge. I am making a new page, ‘The Best of Vintage Sapience’, listing all the great posts and the most loved ones.

Truer Lies

The whole truth is only a misnomer now. What we call the truth may technically only be a half-truth. Some people would be served untruths and some are worthy of truer lies. In this medley of half-truths, truer lies and guarded secrets, who can we truly trust?

Man is a social being, is he not? His friends, family and neighbors make up his society. Also now, his Facebook friends, and non-friends(😉) are important stakeholders in deciding what kind of image he has in the society.

I may be a wealthy person, but as long as it is a secret, not many people would value me for even the right reasons. Continue reading “Truer Lies”

Thought of the day

We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don’t even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It’s time to put an end to this. It’s time for us to let ourselves be loved.
