Hopelessly Sweet People ✨

Sometimes, after an argument in which the other person was clearly at fault, do you end up feeling sad and guilty.? “Did I say too much? Was I too loud? Shit, I have hurt that person. I should call and apologize. I feel terrible now. I should text a big sorry message at least.” This is what happens with you? You are different. Yes, you feel too much. You care too much. You worry too much. People would say you are an over thinker, you are way too kind and loving to people around you. But you know what? -  You are an idiot as well. You can't keep taking care of others without taking care of yourself. People have used you, they have said the sweet things and then left you bitter in your heart. There would have been times when you have done so much for others, but they left you with an excuse when you needed them. You have always been helping others, but you have felt helpless when you were down in life. 

And it's not just you, there are a whole lot of people in this universe like you, even I'm one of them, and  I know if you are one of my kind, your soul is nodding in yes. I know your heart is whispering a yes too. I know that you have always known this. You have tried to become a cold, selfish person. But you failed miserably. And you stopped that act of being selfish and rude because you felt that you are becoming a bad person. I failed too.

What I've realised is , we should not change out of anger. We don't have to become them. But accept the realities of life. Have a kind heart, but choose when to be kind. Choose whom to help and how much. Choose when it becomes too heavy and toxic for you. Choose when to walk away from people who talk to you only when they need you. Choose your health, your mental wellbeing, your peace, and your happiness. Choose self-respect. Choose the truth that you can say no to people and still be an amazingly kind person. Choose to say yes to self-love. Choose. Choose because you are not stupid. It's hard, but worth giving a try!

Granny's Patchwork of Love❤️

"Your Grandmother would've been proud of you, if she were here today" This is something I often hear from my family and relatives. She passed away when I was in Grade 8 and I miss her more as I grow older because now I understand what values she imbibed in me  My Grandma was a Social Science teacher and a Principal in a Government School, and my source of inspiration & guidance. She was an angel in disguise who taught me how to care. She was a spiritual person who believed in God and treated everyone with love and respect.  She always said "You never know when you are interacting with an angel, so be kind and generous always".  Since she passed, all I have is her fond memories, her valuable lessons & our laughs and giggles.  One particular thing she asked me to take as an advice as an oxigen canister in this fast spreading virus borne world.  That was -"Don’t ever let your ice cream melt while you’re counting someone else’s sprinkles.” 

History isn't just about Past🤝

"To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child, For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of History." - Marcus Tullius Cicero I'm often asked - What is the use or relevance of studying history? Why on earth does it matter What happened long time ago? The answer is that history is inescapable. It studies the past and legacies of past in present. Far from being a dead subject, it conmects things through time and encourages its students to take a long view of such connections.   Understanding the linkage between the past and present is absolutely basic for a good understanding of the condition of being human. That, in a nutshell, is why history matters. It is not just ‘useful’, it is essential. The broad span of human experience, viewed both in depth and longitudinally over time, is the subject of history as a field of study. History enables us to contemplate the e

Hope grins on the doorway of 2022♥️

The chilly winds on my face, the little mist in the air, red nose, cold hands, mom screaming take care oh, with December, the year comes to an end,  some tears some smiles, and i made one new friend.  The end of this year full of ambiguities is near, bringing the time to reflect what we reared in the whole long year, other than lament and fear. A time to reflect which do's and don'ts crossed our lines & which relations grew fine. What was learnt and what was taught. What was new and what felt like draught,  What engrossed within our hearts & what disappeared fast. What made us grateful & kind, What was love when cherished from distance, What was mirth when tried to express, What was gained and what was lost.  Was all a part of the year just going to pass. Falling again and again with consistency, Then bringing my life into existence, I learned that this world is here to tear you, Are you enough strong to create your own space, Only then, you can embrace,
