World on mute for a while..

Time: 10:44am

Place: CP, Delhi.


A bright morning with a little sprinkle of the heat and breeze and it seems to be an unusual day (Just to me). Sitting under a tree with a book in my hand and my earphones plugged in, I decided to update my words.
It is one of the busiest place in Delhi, yet everything seems to be on mute. All I could feel is the gentle breeze embracing me and a bit of heat patting my hand through the little gap in the branches. Right now I feel disconnected from the world and trust me it feels good but it also makes me realize out of no where how socially awkward I am.
It is absolutely surprising how this place looks so calm right now. Okay! I guess it’s my earphones that’s making me feel like everything around me is on mute (Practical Realization).
Delhi is indeed a beautiful place for people with different interests and aspirations. Unbelievably twenty years now and I have never managed to keep myself intrested in myself,  forget about anybody else. Time spent alone makes a person to discover the concealed interests and skills. Most importantly I got to know my music playlist more. I found songs that I did not even know  I had. Woah! Too much discovered today. “Time spent alone results in discovering yourself”. True, absolutely true. Hopefully I’m finding myself intrested in myself now. How strange is that!! Haha. Anyway now that I know I’m socially awkward and I can find tranquillity and merriment all by myself, I also witness the day to be awesome.
BRIGHT DAY IN THE MUTED WORLD!!!

[This experience is different. Sitting here in this busy city amidst all the noise, I found the place muted and calm. So I wrote believing that the rest is still unwritten.   – Evlyn]

A Voyage Discovering Yourself..

Hey Guys! I am back with another post. I know I’m posting after so long and so many of you have been asking about it. I apologize for the delay and I’ll make sure I write often and post regularly.

So, Valentine’s Day is around the corner but I’m definitely not writing anything related to it. Instead I decided I’m going to talk about you. Yeah! About you, it even applies to me quite evidently. Have you ever thought of knowing yourself better? Do you really know what is it which makes you happy in life or maybe what really do you believe in? So many questions about you are still unrevealed. It’s time to know yourself better, if you haven’t yet.

This time I am up with few interesting questions, which you are going to answer and know more about you. We are not going to talk about any personality test or learning about your family backgrounds, neither are we talking about your food and clothing choices or your childhood best friend. We are going to talk about who you really are at the bottom line, what lifts your spirit, what drains your happiness and so on.

I personally went through all the questions and tried answering them. Trust me, this helped me a lot in knowing myself at the core. At first, I found myself answering few of them very diplomatically but also realized being cautious to myself and knowing the answer evidently, is worse. [I tried to act smart to myself I guess 😉 ] However, my inner voice was screaming out the answers and I had to accept them.

So moving on……..

Just a little tip:  Always remember no answer is right or wrong, it is only you who is going to reveal the secrets and build a strong bond with the person within you. Whenever you are ready to do this, get rid of all the noise around you and sit back in a calm place. Take few deep breaths and just relax. Make sure you note down the answer for every question in right order. When you are done, read every answer with the corresponding questions.

 

So the questions are:

  1. What is life to me?
  2. Who matters the most to me?
  3. What lightens me up with joy?
  4. What am I proud of?
  5. What is my biggest fear?
  6. Who is the person I don’t like yet I spend time with and why?
  7. What does my inner voice tell about me?
  8. What am I grateful for?
  9. Where do I feel safe?
  10. What are the new activities am I interested or willing to try?
  11. How is my existence in this universe helping people?
  12. If a relationship or job makes me feel unhappy, do I choose to stay or leave?
  13. If I have to choose between fame and happiness, what will I choose?
  14. What do I feel about my parents?
  15. Am I grateful to people who helped me?
  16. Do I celebrate my life?
  17. Do I compare my life with others?
  18. How often do I sulk over my existence in this universe?
  19. Am I really the person who I once desired to be?
  20. Am I truthful to myself?

And that’s it. You’re done…..

I know, it’s quite tedious and boring to answer questions but when you start doing, it picks up pace and yet in time becomes quite interesting and even fun. These answers may be new to you or maybe hard to believe but that’s the unsaid reality.

You are gifted to do beyond your capacity. So are you loved, loving and loveable and you are more than enough. Getting to know yourself is worthwhile; I would say you can trust me on this. So, just hit it…

FIND THE PERSON WITHIN YOU!!!!

CHANGE: WHAT’S SO TIZZY ABOUT IT?

quotes_creator_20161213_153336

Hey folks!

Thank you for scanning my previous post and encouraging me to write more. All your comments and reviews are being valued and used in the betterment of scribbling fresh.

So, I am back with another post but this time it is a bit different from the previous one. In this post I choose to connect with you, the enthusiastic one reading this.  I have a recommendation before you read any further. I recommend you to think of an answer every time I put up a question and then read further. Is that fair? Great, so here we go……

What is Change?

Remember what I recommended? Did you think of an answer? Yes? Sure?

So, the universal definition of change according to the oxford dictionary is, ‘Make or become different’. If I had to quote my answer to this question, then I would define CHANGE as ‘to become different or to undergo an alteration’. You may or may not agree with my definition as this word has so many dimensions. Places change, preference change, trend change, seasons change, conditions change, people change, you change and even I change.

Before I started to scribble, I asked for opinions from so many of them to know what exactly they feel about change and I gradually observed that they all had a very unique way of defining the term, despite it being the same.

Changing for good is an optimistic case whereas; the other should be treated as a contrary of the same. A change can count to be a good one if it results in being a boon to the pertaining matter and similarly it can be considered as a change for bad if it is a stumbling block for others around.

Just to narrow it down, let’s talk about the change observed in people. Why do you think people change? Thought of an answer? If you did, then let’s take it forward. I have a perception that people change because they really want to be different from being the monotonous one or maybe just fond of acquiring a new penchant.

Many a times you find yourself in a situation where you find it difficult to accept and welcome the new change in people. People’s change can be catastrophic to you but think of the other aspect. Every coin has two sides so does every occurrence has two aspects. The change that made you feel downcast may prove to be a good change for the other person and for you. As quoted in the BIBLE-

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Ecclesiastes 3:1

It is now quite evident that everything changes for a reason and there is a fixed time for everything to change. Never be so dependent on any person that you can never accept the change but feel despaired. Another quick thought that passes across my mind when I think of the change observed in people is ‘EXPECTATIONS LEAD TO DISAPPOINTMENT’. Think of the situation where you expect so much from a person who fails to keep up to your expectation just because the person has adopted new changes. This change leaves you disappointed. The bible says in PROVERBS 26:11 – ” As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly.” The habit of a dog is to go back and consume the discarded puke and the habit of a fool is to repeat the same absurd act again and again. The only spot where we are at fault is after experiencing so much, we go back to square one. Even after knowing people change with time, we fail to understand this and go back to repeat the same old process of expecting too much from the same person who changed long back and we end up being disappointed again.
This change somewhere or the other becomes an inevitable part of life that the feeling of being left out slowly fades away. The very essence of life is to ACCEPT & MOVE ON. Start believing in yourself, if you haven’t yet. Trust me, once you start to feel less perturbed about the change, you’ll become more comfortable with the change and may even find tranquility. This change for sure would enable you to explore yourself and find a new charm in life to be joyous and ecstatic. NEVER FORGET, CHANGE IS BEAUTIFUL AND YOU MIGHT HAVE PEACE AND ASSURANCE IN THE FACT THAT THE ONE WHO CREATED YOU NEVER CHANGES.

There is a humorous anecdote behind every blog I write. The previous night before this post was published, I was in a call with a friend and out of no where I happened to ask him , ” What is Change?” just to know his opinion and collect ideas for the post. He got so much into the question that he said, “It is the term for money where the banknotes are changed to coins”. This honest and spontaneous answer of him left us laughing for the next few minutes. Later, I explained about the change I was talking about and then got to gather ideas from his opinion. CHANGE IS BEAUTIFUL.
