Your choice your attitude

A positive attitude is a choice we make for ourselves …

When we believe a positive attitude is a choice we have….

We can start by embodying positivity in thoughts, words deeds

And then, emitting positive vibes with the world around us.

Every small step we take to change to a positive attitude

Empowers us for the better.

Life is a Gift of grace

The choice is in us to make.

To make our life a celebration.

On Acceptance

Accepting the difficult truths

Can be hard

Most challenging at times

But in acceptance

Is an ease of being

Your vulnerability

Can be your strength

It’s all in the attitude

That you may choose to have

In life and living

Accept yourself first

As you are, all of you

The rest will finds its way

To fit in .

In ways unimaginable

For the power of you

In the moment of truth

Making the impossibles possible

Such is truth of life.

So do all that you do

With the best of you

Life lessons

Another inspiring story translation from tamil forward by my mother Anjana.

A gardener one day saw a bird’s nest in his garden. Out of curiosity he peeped inside and saw a few eggs laid inside it.
Next day he was happy to see small tiny cracks on the eggshells. He realised th eggs are getting ready to hatch . His curiosity increased.
For the he next few days , every day he will see the how the eggs are and happy to see the cracks getting bigger. His expectations kept on increasing.
One day he saw the eggs moving and the little tiny birds were struggling inside to break open the wall and come out of their confined space .
He felt sad for the birds as they have to struggle so much. He wanted to help them . So he softly made the cracks big enough to make their work easy.
The next morning he went with lot of expectations to see the little birds out of the eggs without struggle. He was disappointed to see there was no change. It was same as he had kept the day before.
For the next couple of days it went on. The eggs remained the same . There was no movement. Then one day he was shocked to see lot of ants all over the eggs and found all the tiny birds dead inside.
His heart ached to see this . He was very sad. His friend who saw him asked the reason. When he told what had happened , his friend told, ” You are the reason for their death. Out of your love n expectation you killed them. “

“Me ? How?”
“Yes , only you are responsible.
When the little birds are ready to come out , their little wings and legs will move slowly giving it strength. It will break open the shell with the help of its beak n body. It is a natural process . If you had left it their way by now all the little ones must have come out and flew from their nest in a few days. A normal delivery would have happened.
The gardener was shattered when he realised his folly.
As parents we are doing the same to our children. We protect them with so much care and precautions to safe guard them from any pain or suffering.
We fail to make them know the value of sweat, the worth of labour and the struggling path to success. We want to give them all ready in a platter. Our mentality is’ I’ve suffered a lot. My children should not’.
We forget that our overprotective love will make them weak and some day when they face life with its realities , they will suffer.
Let us make them walk the path and watch them grow as individuals with inner strength. When needed be there to guide. How long can they walk catching your fingers. Let them walk alone. Let them fall and learn to rise on their own. Let them make their own path . Watch them from a distance. Applaud them.
This is not a bird’s story.
It is a life lesson for our children.

Shining through

Just having the courage to express ourselves, we open ourselves to a vulnerable and creative self that is the light in us shining through….:)

Somewhere in time…

Somewhere in time…

Some paths feel closer home
A river that feels cruised before
The spectre of night that feels witnessed before
Some places feel lived &  breathed in before
Memorable moments linger on
Sustained as fond memories
In the sensing  of soulspaces.

The Path of Light

Artwork  Title:  ‘Towards Light’by Savvy Raj

Peace cometh from light

Boundless and infinite
When it shines from the heart
In every aspiration to breathe
In every inspiration to bow in the benediction of the spirit

Transmute to transcend towards light
Let go of propensities of pettiness
Envelope and embrace this aura so bright
Let the wisdom of light be always in conscious awareness.

And simply remember the light of the suns ray
Will always show the way.

Let us all envelop ourselves with the light of a new dawn   and feel the light  that envelopes and embraces the world  in trust &hope, in peace & faith for a better tommorow for us all.

Happy Diwali  to all my readers!

And life goes on…

Looking back at life’s challenges

If you were to see things

With the element of time

Yesterday it may have mattered a great deal.

Today things are different

Perceptions change altering our perspectives.

And we learn to see the bigger picture

And then we give and take.

And learn to receive and let go.

And life goes on!

On walking

I am very fond of walking, I even have a virtual group of walkers that I walk with for motivation everyday. We contribute our steps to a charitable cause. But more on that some other time. Suffice to say walking is one of my favorite activity, for it is truly destressing.

Sharing this information that came my way on social media this morning…

IMPORTANCE OF WALKING.

Both the legs together have 50% of the nerves of the human body, 50% of the blood vessels and 50% of the blood is flowing through them.

▪️ It is the largest circulatory network that connects the body.
So Walk daily.

▪️Only when the feet are healthy then the convention current of blood flows , smoothly, so people who have strong leg muscles will definitely have a strong heart. Walk.

▪️Aging starts from the feet upwards

▪️As a person gets older, the accuracy & speed of transmission of instructions between the brain and the legs decreases, unlike when a person is young.
Please Walk

▪️In addition, the so-called Bone Fertilizer Calcium will sooner or later be lost with the passage of time, making the elderly more prone to bone fractures. WALK.

▪️Bone fractures in the elderly can easily trigger a series of complications, especially fatal diseases such as brain thrombosis.

Walk daily without fail

▪️ Exercising the legs, is never too late, even after the age of 60 years.

▪️Although our feet/legs will gradually age with time, exercising our feet/ legs is a life-long task.
Walk 10,000 steps

▪️Only by regular strengthening the legs, one can prevent or reduce further aging. Walk 365 days

▪️ Please walk for at least 30-40 minutes daily to ensure that your legs receive sufficient exercise and to ensure that your leg muscles remain healthy.

We care. We share

Conscious circles

This post is stemming from reflections to my post by a reader on LinkedIn. I simply choose to delve a bit with the insightful thoughts.

And these verses birthed along the way.


The wall of the mind
Is  in each of us to forge through
In valuing the space between
Two thoughts two steps or two notes.
In choosing harmony of  synchrony 
In conscious awareness
In discerning thoughts
In response than reaction
In connecting the dots
In realizing the grace of unity.

In sensing the strength
Of the circle of conscious connections.

Patience waits…

Wisdom of Patience

Patience awaits
In faith and belief
Patience is understanding
For patience hones itself
For the suitable moments.

Patience is non-judgmental
Patience bears the burden
Of the moments
Knowing the power of time.
Patience is resilience in action
Patience is strength of the spirit
Patience speaks volumes of the soul
Without a word or deed.
Such is the wisdom of Patience

For much is resolved in patience.
A true Companion for Wisdom is Patience and a lot of life’s so called situations which need solutions can be resolved by thinking differently !

Ability to cultivate patience is an art…

To know all happens for a reason.

Wisdom in the waves


To dare as much as to retreat
In the ebb and flow of life
Waves teaches us much!
To reach the pinnacle of success
Is one thing
But truth of nature is, it changes.

So the glory must recede in humility
Such is the way of balance.
There is no gain the holding on
There is grace in the letting go!
Such is the circle of life .

Friend… such a beautiful word!
I loved this particular space at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Belgium and felt so much at home there. Although it meant become a friend of the museum…the fact was, there was so much positive energy simply being in it.

Be a friend reach out to care
Be inclusive and expansive
Our world needs more of it.
Care to open your heart and share
Express your hopes and aspirations
Love life enough to live it lovingly!
