Look out- those footprints grow!

7 Oct

Three days ago, somewhere in the midst of the Navratri festival, I saw a little girl of about 8 or 9, strutting around on the streets in golden heels, racing in tow with her Mom. That made me literally stop in my tracks and wonder about the last pair of fancy shoes I might have ever owned- in class III or IV maybe- albeit, mine were black. It amazed me to recollect that I actually had at least one pair of sandals (other than my school shoes, i.e.) bought in my name, year after year, until I was that age. So, it isn’t my parents’ fault that I’m such a lousy dresser now, is it? Hmm. 😕

Today, during a quiet moment, I happened to look down at my feet. When did I grow up to be so big? I have NO idea. Let this be a crazy dream, God. Actually, I’m not sure I’m willing to go all the way back, too.

I’m mumbling, aren’t I? Ah! I can do this. I can. I SO surely can. I can. I will. I am. I am… Phew. I am because I can and it makes me happy– it does- it’s true. I am exactly where I’m meant to be. I’m progressing. This is good. All I need to do is relax a bit more. I’ll be fine. Ah! Writing is therapy. 🙂

Until next time, au revoir folks! Be good.

Reading the waves on the ECG of life- someday soon, it’ll talk!

18 Aug

I’m in a happy place, today. 🙂 🙂 Amidst bubble-breathing cartoons painted on dreary walls, I’ve found friends I wouldn’t have believed I’d find. Do I still believe that I have? I’m not sure. It’s like I asked them yesterday, “Are you for real?” As crazy as this might sound, they’ve brought my heart immense happiness and I’m content with just that for today. “Take it one step at a time”– this line has come to me from several friends and family on very many occasions- it must be God shaking sense into my head; I want to be obedient when it comes to Him, so that’s exactly what I’m going to be doing.

I could still ask some of the crazy questions I’ve been asking all week now, aka “What might God want me to do with my life?”, “What’s with the hormones? Holy Lord! WHY?”, my usual personal favorite, “Whatever were you thinking, God?”, “Why are some people, a good section of boys I’ve met definitely included, so terribly rude? Seriously, what’s with that?” or “Surely people in the world could be nicer than that, couldn’t they?” But I’m not asking any of those things- not right now, because I’m at peace. 😉 [I can bet God is feeling relieved!] My answers are coming to me- some of which, I already know. The human race is weird- it really is; I’m glad I have my connections with the divine.

Every time that I attempt thinking back, I don’t understand how I’ve let uncool events progress as much as they did. It’s time to loosen up more. It’s time to take things I’ve been allowing to weigh me down, lightly- really lightly. I’m 25; I want to be funner, freer and a LOT happier, to relish every moment of every day that life gives me, to trust more, to be okay with every limb of the asterix, to know truly that the route I’m being taken along is the path to my true purpose, to be proud of each milestone I cross and above all, to learn to love and forgive myself plentifully more than I already do.

If I were left to do things my way, I’d be hopping from one major thing on that list to the next like a grasshopper on a winning spree- all in a few hours, like I have done mentally several times 😀 but I’m a child of God, He has plans for me that He might/might not have told me yet, I trust Him and I will certainly shut-up and follow because I choose to be wiser than I have been.

Writing this post has felt good; I can literally feel peaceful harmonies from the universe wafting through my being. I hope everybody else in the world attains their best, today, too; this is me signing off, sending peace and love to everyone!

Hello world!

Writing this feels like a whole new opportunity for freedom, growth, reflection and self-expression; for which, I am immensely grateful. 🙂

I may not post as regularly, here, because my schedule may not permit it; but this blog is meant to be an easy place to turn to when I am in need of making sense of things.

Just getting used to wordpress feels like a major milestone for now!

If you’ve stumbled upon this, thanks so much for taking time to read me.

Here’s to great beginnings, fulfilling journeys and happy endings!! 🙂

Cheers!
