Patterns at play

All of life is a dance…

Every being has its own ballet

Every life it’s own patterns

Every pattern has its own path

Every path its own flow

Every flow its own beauty

All is uniquely orchestrated

To manifest and align in time.

Self-management

Self care

Is never selfish

In fact it’s otherwise

It is self- management.

For self care makes it easier

For you are self disciplined

Self supportive,and self reliant

To make yourself self efficient

Self care is a much needed management lesson

For it is an effort in aspiration to thrive than just survive

Rooted in increasing self awareness

Of the need to build self resilience and self worth.

So know your life is gift

Your energy is unique to you.

As you go about your day

Care to listen to your body

Make time to heal and recover

Self care is an important life long practice

Value your health & care for balance

In mind, body & spirit.

It pays rich dividends.

Take time out for yourself

Find ways to nurture your now

You are better off starting early.

When Art Speaks…

Allowing the art to speak and acknowledging its flow is of essence, to sense and enjoy the art itself.

Learning to dance & dancing socially comes along with many lessons and learnings…

In any partner dancing its important to respond than simply react to the movement direction from the partner in the flow.

The cultivation of the ability of any dancers acknowledgement & appreciation of their dance partner or other dancers, differences in movement speed or artistry not merely as tolerable, brings on the required humility and grace in the dance.

This is in itself the essence of a rich and rewarding social dancing experience.

Dare to Dream

Dare to dream

Dream fearlessly

Imagine confidently

Intend hopefully

Persevere consistently

Trust undoubtedly

And sense it manifesting in time.

On Happiness…

What if?


You are given an opportunity to travel to beautiful locales on work or pleasure ,in a country so far away from  your own
Everything  is wonderful and picturesque…

Yet, you are traveling along with people/ or paired with a person of completely different interests.

What if….

If you are a morning person and they are late risers

If you like walking and they like to rest more.

If you like to explore museums and art scenes and they have no interest in anything art

If you want to experience new culture by meeting new people and connecting with them than simply trying out food .

What if you want quick bites on the go and they like fancy dining experiences.

What if you want to start early and you are exasperated as they prefer late afternoon after a lazy lunch…

What if you are up and ready to go and they take a really long time to get ready ūü§Ē

You like to capture experiences and rejoice in the memories and they have no particular interest in photography.

When you like to have a conversation freely and they are too busy or too silent, you often realise its better to remain silent unless spoken to even if there is  company.

What would you do …

You make things right for you!

Let’s see, it’s not all that bad
You are in a new location….

You realise its better to have some company than traveling alone in some places at least.
You begin to appreciate the environment and yourself in it.
You appreciate others who are around.
You pay extra interest in people and places, the quirkiest, even the strangest and most peculiar  things as much as the ordinary  seem to matter somehow.
You try to find happiness in  whatever you see.
You adapt to things as it comes.
You accept¬†everything, as your life’s myriad moments.
You remember to focus on the positives¬† acknowledge the good in them and move on…

After all

Happiness is in you!

And
Tommorow is another new day!

On Courage

I came across this interesting quote on courage…

Courage is willingness to take the risk once you know the odds. Optimistic overconfidence means you are taking the risk because you don’t know the odds. It’s a big difference.
Daniel Kahneman

It got me thinking ūü§Ē

What is courage?

Is it about a dare

To do, to execute

To be, to explore

To experiment or experience

The yet unknown

What is the root of courage?

Where does it stem from?

From fear to fearlessness

From doubt to determination

From confusion to confidence

From uncertainty to certainty

To confront at all costs

What are your thoughts on Courage

Sometimes I feel whenever life through you out to dare without option of retreat

It does so because life knows

That you have it in you

To surmount the odds

Life challenges

And how!

Seeds of Inspiration

You can intend for change

But you cannot force it.

Your message is best understood

In empathic connection.

Do your best

Sow the seeds in hope

Intend well

Let the best happen in time.

The truth of you

A world is writ on your face

Your life plays in every cell

Your body is listening

And receiving in every now

Actively engaging with the changes…

Being one with the truth of you

The Infinite Potential

Creativity

Happened to see this amazing work of art, and just had to share…

https://www.facebook.com/reel/558440416192006?s=yWDuG2&fs=e&mibextid=Nif5oz

Creativity is a tenacity
In passion for the art
In  labour of love
In the depth of creativity
There is ardent effort
To fulfill the purpose  of its being
Towards the raison de etre

Circles of Change


In the¬† forward path…
Between anxiety to acceptance
Between doubt &  enthusiasm
Between  denial to acknowledgement
Between confusion to creativity
Between  resistance  to energy
Between fear & hope
There is many circles of transitions
To reorient to the changing times
In it is an exploration  of possibilities
To move on the path forward.
And constant is the circles of Change.

Life

Will never forget the words said to me years ago by one of my senior most dance student, the gentle and poised Margaret, after a few months of social dance sessions, “So far we were existing, now we are living! ”

Live life beyond just existing!

Striking a balance

Passion or profit
It’s a juggling¬† act
If you put one before the other
You are bound to feel displaced
Between loving what you do and earning to your potential
Between self expression &  economics.
Both have the due place in our lives.
To sense harmony is to find your own  balance 
Between the two!

Growth

Growth is a revelation
To your own self
So much of you
Has outgrown  the past
The version of you
That you would not relate
In this now for life is changing
As new versions of you
Emerge in  every  moment
You grow as you evolve.

Taking a decision

Decision is often the difference between greatness and mediocrity. In every man‚Äôs life there comes a time when he must search for a cause, a work, an ideal to which he can give himself. Whether he says ‚ÄėYes‚Äô or ‚ÄėNo‚Äô to the challenge will determine his future.‚ÄĚ

Wilferd Peterson

Taking any difficult decision

Without sitting on the fence

Is not always easy

For it may take all of you

More than what you are ready to commit at times

And yet its liberating

Once you have a decision made

For there is clarity in thoughts

To set things in motion

Leading you to your purpose.

Gratitude for the interconnects

Here’s to the believers
The trusters and the hopeful ones
For those who keep the hope alive in their hearts

They work to change the world for the better
Practicing their arts & live their passion in purposeful ways.


It is through  them values are practiced passed on and sustained.
Power to the practitioners in knowing that there is always more…
To learn unlearn and relearn.

For everything interconnects
Keep the faith
For faith is all there is.
And without it nothing is.
