Something I’m worried about.

Will my words ever be enough
to calm the storm of emotions
and the thunders of a healing heart?

Prompt: Something I’m worried about. I did the daily posting challenge over on Instagram where this was one of the prompts. All were very thought-provoking and that made you search your soul for words.

I could have written something mundane – like life, struggles, and daily chores, but this had a certain profoundness and truth that I couldn’t resist myself!

Three Day Quote Challenge: Diary Special!

Once upon a time, Chape Personal Trainer, nominated me for a Three Day Quote Challenge. I was very happy to have been challenged to do something I already loved so much! In my post, I admitted that I loved quotes so much that I have a diary for them. David then requested me to share that diary here on the blog.

David has been so wonderful and helpful that I don’t feel shy about sharing my diary. So, today, I will show that diary here!

It was something I started out with at least 10 years ago, and I have been writing in it ever since. It has definitely seen better days and good handwriting. In fact, I can honestly track the changes in my handwriting through it!

The quotes were general in the beginning and as my interest developed, I started focussing on certain themes- life, nature, Buddha, sacrifice, education and more. Then I even noted down important sayings, metaphors and proverbs. I also scribbled some smart-ass T-shirt quotes which made me laugh on days when I felt low. I have also found some cult phrases in my diary which were big at that time!

Three Day Quote Challenge: Round 2!

David from Chape Personal Trainer nominated me once again for the Three Day Quote Challenge, and I couldn’t be happier! My love for beautiful words is unparalleled. Since, I look for ways to save them, scribble them and store them for later use, this quote challenge makes me giddy – excited to the point of disorientation!

David is a Liebster Award winner, a fitness freak and a more awesome blogger. His blog, easy on the eyes and high on information is serving as my top motivator to lose weight and be healthy, from outside and within!

This time, I chose the Three Quotes A Day variation of the challenge. Continue reading “Three Day Quote Challenge: Round 2!”

Saving Grace

A preview of a new piece I’ve been working on:

you write so often
blithely words so profound.
like fallen maple leaves of autumn
red, precious, gathered from the ground.

I hold them in my heart again
Piecing it together, grain by grain.
breaking the barrier, breaching the silence,
my questions reverberate in a quiet refrain.

Thought for the day

“All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore love for love’s sake, because it is the only law of life, just as you breathe to live.”

― Swami Vivekananda, Letters of Swami Vivekananda
