Being happy is a choice

While you think about the things you don’t have.

There is someone who is being grateful for what they got.

While you count the sorrows in your life.

There is someone who is counting their blessings.

While you see the half cup empty.

There is someone who sees their half cup full.

While you wait for validation by the world.

There is someone who has no choice but to beleive in themselves.

Who I am?

The man down the lane once asked who I am?

People said he was selfish, only cared about himself. The man was considerate but it wasn’t always noticed.

People said he was insensitive, dint show emotions. The man always struggled to express his bottled up emotions.

People said he was racist, supported only his kind. The man was a victim of racism and hatred and chose to support his kind so they don’t feel humiliated like he did.

People said he was a coward, did not support feminism. The man was once thrown into jail for false accusations by a woman.

People said he was unlucky for love, nobody liked him. The man once trusted someone and gave his heart, only to be broken by betrayal.

People said he never tried enough. The man was exhausted trying every possible way and it dint work.

People said he was a depressed man, trying to end his life. The man was only struggling to find his place in the society which was so judgemental and sharp as a knife.

Do you have that smile??

Do you have that smile??

The one that touches the soul and imprints it with joy. That smile is contagious, it has the glitter in the eyes and gold in the heart.

It holds the power to mend the broken hearts

It holds the power to make you smile even when you don’t want to

It holds the power to change your mood even when you had a rough day,

It holds the power to turn the hearts from hard to soft

It holds the power to turn the frown to joy

It holds the power to turn the poverty of emotions to richness of emotions

It holds the power to change the rivalry to friendship

It holds the power to stop the tongue from uttering that hurtful word

It holds the power to cool down the anger and save from regret

It holds the power to love even when there is hate all around

It holds the power to show trust even when times are hard

Do you have that smile?

If this is your smile pass it on to someone today, it would make them smile too. If you are already smiling as you read this, share this with your loved ones.
If you have someone who smiles at you everyday, love them and respect them, hold on to them because they are special.

Finding yourself in the chaos of this world…

The world today is such a place,

Chaos is what is left of today,

With every being struggling to live, we can no more rely on someone elses’s will

It’s hard to have your opinion in this world, but remember it’s the only thing you will not regret.

Most are those who will give you words of sympathy and say time will change everything and move on, rare are those who hold your hand and say I will be with you through this time.

Don’t lose yourself trying to meet everybody’s expectations, it is human nature to never be pleased.

Don’t lose yourself for someone who doesn’t respect your feelings, for that person will never know the sweetness of affection and empathy.

Don’t lose yourself for those who make you feel less capable, they don’t know what you were before you met them.

Dont lose yourself for those who blame you for the situation, they will not admit their role which led to it.

Don’t lose yourself for those who do not value your tears, they can sleep as you cry alone.

Don’t lose yourself for those who don’t make you feel as their priority in life, if they are not doing now, they never will.

Don’t lose yourself for those who do not encourage you to your goals, they are the ones who never had dreams.

Don’t lose yourself for those who think you are not strong, they are unaware of the struggles that made you strongest. They are unaware that you chose them to show your scars because of the love you have for them, you chose to show the side of you the world had never seen.

Find yourself, pull yourself out from the chaos. You can do it because you were always the strong one, don’t let others pull you down with them. There are always those rare people around you who will be happy to see your shine. Live for them.

Finally we are what choices we make for ourselves. Depend on noone for your well being and happiness. This is the best you can do for yourself in this chaotic world. Period.
