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.

Wise Words Wednesday (Dec 11, 2019)

“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!

Wise Words Wednesday (December 4, 2019)

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 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.

Define Love

Define Love.
It’s a feeling, an emotion, and a religion that you make. It’s a current that shoots through your body electrifying and numbing the senses, both at once. It ebbs and flows, transforms you all day, every day. It lifts you up and keeps you afloat. It can also drown you. Because there is no exception or definition of love that is complete. It’s you, and it’s that one person who you just thought of.

 


We’re defining love today! I wouldn’t take up this immense task myself if it weren’t for overwhelming feelings one day, and this piece was born. It has been a while, and I still stand by this definition. It could change one day, but the last sentence will always resonate with me. Sometimes I surprise myself with some of my words. I just have never known that this feeling or this emotion exists in me – it is birthed in grandeur frequently. However, the underlying emotion resonates with a lot of people, and I am taken aback by the power of words! Especially when it is about life, relationships and/or love. I do not claim to be the authority on all of this, but a good grasp of the concept is enlightening and honestly a little bit empowering.

I share my raw feelings here like it were my diary. If you’re looking for me, you’ll find me between the lines, the rhetoric of the meaning and the metaphor of the cliche. What can I say, I love words and the English language!

Hope everyone reading has a lovely day! Signing off.

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 🙂
