When The Posts Were for No One Ft. Realizations

I have long maintained that my posts are never for someone. And that was true till a while ago. And then it changed a little bit. I met someone who I can attribute at least 4 of my posts to. This was quite a big change for me. Initially I did not want to share those pieces on social media because they seemed more personal and intimate than any of the others I had written for some years. But they are online now, and they don’t look any different than my other posts. Only I would know the difference.

Okay I let in a couple of my friends on the secret too. They were surprised but supporting nonetheless! I make it sound more dire than the situation really is. But it seemed like a crucial milestone to log in the blog. I will not be posting the dates because I remember them anyway. The timestamps have skipped my mind now, which is progress! Haha. Full disclosure: the posts are still abstract, fictional and creative pieces. But the fact that they were born out of emotions after a certain period in time are enough to warrant this whole post!

It was a different time and refreshing experience for me. And to see if it could be discerned from the content of the piece that it was another kind of special. There are happy, fluffy pieces and really dark, heavy poems/haiku that can be attributed to that time. I am glad to report that all of the new pieces are free from the burden of that time or place or person or animal or thing :p Trying to make it light. Thank god it was only those 4 posts and now I’m back to fictionally orchestrated posts. Fancy term for : it came to me like that! One more confession: I cut my nails, voluntarily. To the world it may not seem like a lot. But my friends who understood the enormity of the situation gave me their full reactions. People change their hair as a trans-formative action. For me, it’s nails! Context: I used to be a chronic nail biter. I’ve somehow got over that habit in the last couple of years, so I treasure my natural nails a little bit too much now. Cutting them is a big deal. This post has turned into a life update of sorts.

I don’t know who enjoys reading these random posts, but I’m sure I will fondly look over these later in life (if I live long enough, but that is a topic for another day, haha). Thank you for reading! Hope everyone is keeping busy, staying safe and having fruitful days 🙂

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.

Not Alone!

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 (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 6, 2019)

“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.

The Heavenly Path

Do not think twice.

Always choose the path where

the heaven meets the skies.

Your heart will be the guiding light!



Making choices in life can be so daunting. And people say follow your heart. But what does that really mean? I believe it symbolizes your heart’s deepest desires and where it truly belongs. That’s the path you should follow! The one that has beauty, heavens and salvation at its end. Have a great day 🙂

Fat.

Fat is a feeling.
Do not let it overpower you! ©

This is something I tell myself every day, or on most days when I am feeling not so well about the physical form of my body. I am generally body-positive, and these lines are my strength. And now I’ve shared this with the world. More power to everyone!

Love,

Saloni
