Hey, remember me? ‘waves a hand in your face’.
Someone once told me that your perception of the world is going to change a million times. Maybe that’s called growing up, not in your body only, but also in your thoughts and mind. Each and every one of us is working for one thing; happiness. Whether that is through a new job, relationship or achievement. But have any of you ever asked yourself that what would it take to make you completely happy? I looked months for the answer but now I realize happiness is not the answer. Facing the facts, we all have to receive our share of suffering. When it rains, it pours. I want peace in my heart. I want to live life with a more positive and forgiving attitude. So I can move forward through the pain and smile in my heart because everything does happen for a reason.
“Imagine that the universe is a great spinning engine. You want to stay near the core of the thing – right in the hub of the wheel – not out at the edges where all the wild whirling takes place, where you can get frayed and crazy. The hub of calmness – that’s your heart. That’s where God lives within you. So stop looking for answers in the world. Just keep coming back to that center and you’ll always find peace.”
- Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love.
I have seen people who struggle their whole lives, against the situation and against other people. Generally we would think that if they achieved their goals, they did their life justice. But often, the journey is what is remembered afterwards and it decides how successfully you lived your life. That is why we have to live in the present and not spend the moments, but live them in it’s true spiritual meaning. Because if we keep on saying ‘I will be happy when……’, that’s not how it’s gonna work.
I believe each of us can do good for himself or for the world, because sometimes bringing a smile on someone’s face is the biggest thing you can do. We all make mistakes, that just shows that we need to change ourselves as early as possible. Because it get’s more difficult with age and then there would be only regrets to eat you away. Be grateful & patient- that’s my mantra!
Even though I have my exams in june, I have been doing a bit of general photography ,as portrayed in this post. I even baked but didn’t have the time to take some photographs. I think I’m nowhere near what I want to be but I guess, practice makes perfect! But trust me, a way to capture the beauty around me is one of the most enthralling things.
These were at the local park. I even asked some parents so I could take pictures of their kids. Guess I could call it coming out of my shell. Also the rooster above tried to bite me seconds after I took this pic.
And oh, there is some food too in case I have sinned.
So here I sign off with the hopes that you all have a
