    All I ask is that you never shame me for feeling life the way I do. I know to most it doesn't make sense but for me it's the only way.

    Acceptance

    Lately, in my silent moments of reflectance
    I have learned that happiness begins with acceptance
    I found it’s what will set you free
    No longer confined to thoughts of “what could be”
    I first seen acceptance as the key
    In a moment of sadness and bleak misery
    I was stuck in the past, desperate and alone
    I dreaded tomorrow for fear of the unknown
    This had me taking the current moment for granted
    Not living in the moment, I didn’t understand it
    But then I learned that I can’t change my past
    I must let it go and move on, at last
    And tomorrow hasn’t come yet so why should I worry?
    I need to enjoy right now, not be in such a hurry
    This is when I chose to accept
    To live in the moment; to have no regrets
    Another moment of realization that helped me see
    That accepting things and letting them be
    Was a moment when I felt I’d lost control of it all
    Life wasn’t what I had envisioned it to be at all
    So I asked myself, what can I do?
    The answer was nothing, that was my clue
    Then I realized that there’s things I can’t escape
    So instead of running, I had to come to terms with fate
    Realizing this brought me a sense of peace
    That has only then since been increased
    Actually, realization is the initial step
    In order for one to truly accept
    I've realized some things are beyond my control
    So I’m better off just going with the flow
    Next, comes a joy you've never witnessed before
    You'll be excited to see what tomorrow has in store
    Or so this was the experience in which I had
    A newfound pleasure in things that once made me sad
    Nothing is as ever as bad as it seems on the surface
    And each & every thing has it's own purpose
    Past obstacles you faced will become new opportunities
    You can avoid many hardships with various impunities
    Experiences become lessons that can advance you ahead
    You no longer live life with a sense of dread
    Acceptance is truly a transformational prize
    But only to those who have opened their eyes
    You will learn to let go if it no longer matters
    You will learn to block out your minds senseless chatter
    Don't let the opinion of others be your concern
    That's their business, just accept them in return
    When things are feeling as if they're getting too rough
    Accept what you can't change; it becomes less tough
    Face your fears, and accept who you are
    Never give up, you've come too far
    Just remember my words, keep them in your heart
    They are total truth and a great place you can start
    I am grateful for the ways that acceptance changed me
    I will forever hold on to what it has taught me
    Maybe one day you will see it, too
    How being accepting can change things for you
    Your life will be enhanced when you start to accept
    Becoming easier each time you practice the concept
    Lastly, another benefit of what acceptance can do
    Is teach many others how to be more accepting, too

    Shining Gem

    Feeling lost and lonely?
    Why?
    You got you!
    The best part about life is learning to love you and appreciating who you are
    You are a gem
    A beautiful gem that may not have been polished yet.
    Shine it, and glow even in the dark

    THE WARRIOR YOU

    You're sufficient
    You're perfectly efficient
    You're just imperfectly perfect
    You don't need anyone's judgment.
    You're whole and complete
    You're absolutely capable to compete.
    You're not weird or abnormal.
    You just don't like to be formal.
    You yourself the troup of warriors
    Who keep on fighting and breaking the obstacles barriers.
    You don't need people to accompany you.
    You're damn admiring that everyone should follow you.
    Keep on encouraging and tapping your back.
    Coz you've been travelling through the broken track.
    You exemplified what's the true meaning of bravery.
    You proved that you're not gonna give up until you find treasury.

    Daddy's at the Door (Part 3 of 3)

    Her eyes filled with tears

    as she told me her story

    I held her in my arms

    and told her not to worry

    Cause Daddy's at the Door 

    but not the one you hate

    The one who really loves you

    and will help you to escape

    And if You let Him in

    you'll be alone no more

    It's finally time to smile

    cause Daddy's at the Door

    My Life, My Learning and My Story

    During quarantine, I was spending time with my cat. Staying around animals made me realise they don't  have beauty standards like us humans. We think in a way because society has made us think that way, but then here in these  pictures I came to know they accepted me for who I am. I began to accept myself for who I am and with this process people around me have also started to accept me the way I am. They don't care whether I have a belly with stick skinny body or not, whether I have scares or not, with or without body hair they know the real me and they accept it. I suppose that before becoming a human being, I needed to learn a few things from my four-legged friends, and I'm glad I did, and I'm grateful to them and now I think these scares, each and everyone of it has a different story which is cool for me. And here comes my moto for my new self "Never change yourself for others, they don't know the real you, change yourself for yourself, you know yourself better than anyone else around. Don't harm yourself while comparing yourself with others everyone is different and that's beauty."

    What Matters

    So what if you don't look like the manufactured stars on magazines or on your feed? If your nose is big or flat? If your face is long or wide? if your waist is not extra small? If your skin is covered in hair, pimbles and scars? If you have visible fat or a lack in curves or muscles? If you don't fit into some arbitrary definition of beauty? A definition that comes and goes with the cycle of trends.
    "Too much," "too little" -- you will never be enough for the world, so how about being "just right" for yourself?
    What matters is the fiery sparkle in your eyes when you talk about your passions, as if real stars are burning behind them.
    What matters is the compassion pouring out of your heart like a spring, healing and soothing.
    What matters is who you surround yourself with, the way they lift you up so you can grow and give you space to just be, to breathe in the fresh, clean air of love and hope.
    What matters is the way you stumble through life and trip over bumps in your way, yet still pick yourself up every time.
    What matters most is this moment right here. Believe me, you matter.

    It's me!!

    When I was a kid,I was a he.
    When I was a teen,I was a she.
    Question was a man or a woman to be me?
    They told me I can't be me.
    My eyes filled with water of sea.
    My mind roaming places like a bee.
    Nobody wanted to hear my plea.
    Lost and devastated I was on my knee.
    Drying my tears I decided to be free.
    My happiness likes within me.
    I can't handover my life's key.
    If I am a God,I will be Natraj...
    If I am a flower,I will be Rose...
    I am a human, neither a he or she,Its just me!!

    May your mind be
    A beautiful garden /
    With flowerbeds of
    Acceptance in bloom/
    May it resist no weed/
    But only tend to its
    Blossoms

    Surrender to the Unknown

    The days just float by. Not sure what to say or think. Our DNA is not wired for death. No matter if you knew, eventually the time would come. The inevitable outcome. Sickness, cancer, dialysis & consistency of pain.

    ~ ~

    I can admit, I didn’t want to accept it. That’s the whole truth. I didn’t want to talk about it, even though it needed to be. I just didn’t want to think about it. I couldn’t. As tears stream down my face, I know that it’s the cycle of life.
    As I look back on all the great times we had, I realize how much you did love me. And the kids & I did mean the world to you. As you said many times.

    ~ ~

    I wish I had an answer as too why you suffered as much as you did. Nobody can deny that you were the strongest woman we know. We all learned from that alone. Through your pain, I felt your strength. Teaching us that no matter what is next, you just have to take the good with the bad.

    ~ ~

    Jason has held true to his word. As have I, showing you we have learned through you. Your willingness to fight as hard as you had to, our weaknesses don’t compare to yours.
    I shed tears, I know acceptance of the truth that I still have in my mind to deny. Denial of it all like a big bad nightmare. That haunts me & maybe it will until I can say to myself I admit & surrender to the unknown. The life that must go on without you here. The lifetime that is not the same now. For anyone. I love you mom. Fly high my Angel, be free. Always know that we are watching for signs from you everyday. I just miss you so very much.

    Her soul was full of the scars
    left over from regret, hatred, and despair
    Acceptance make her whole again
    She wears her scars as the crown

    Pain

    I already accepted everything...

    कई लोग मिलेंगे, कहते रहेंगे।
    आप पे ये नहीं जचता, वो नहीं फबता।
    पर ख़ुद को अच्छा लगे, वहीं सबसे बेहतर।
    उनकी उम्मीद खत्म होगी नहीं, खुश कर पाओगे नहीं।

    A boy with a rainbow heart

    A boy
    Born with the heart
    Of colourful rainbows

    He trusted everyone
    And allowed them
    To take his heart

    Hoping that
    they would treat it with care
    And cherish it with love

    But the people didn't liked it
    They said his heart was too pure
    Too beautiful for this world

    So they stabbed it
    repeatedly with their words, hoping that
    the colours of the rainbow could fade

    It was now covered in Bruises
    So the people thought that they succeeded
    In making it all dark, just perfect for this world

    But little did they know, they were wrong.
    The boy, scared of getting hurt again
    hid the colours under his scars

    Now the scars are fading
    Making the colours pop out again
    But this time, something has changed

    The boy, instead of hating his colours
    Has now accepted them, embracing them
    And he's never afraid of showing them

    He has learnt to fight, for his heart
    And now, he has learnt to play his part
    He's himself now, with no masks

    And now, he is his first priority
    And now, his dreams are his and only his
    And now, his life is his again..
