Random Thoughts

After coming back from a trip of 15 days, I cannot write anything the reason I don’t know, all I did is just completed the book I was reading since very long and now starting a new book.

These days reading gives me immense peace and ideas to write but again I am not ready to write about my recent trip, but I will gather the courage and I will write soon.

Till then I will keep feeding my mind and try to meet people, for me meeting new and old people works like medicine for me, they gave me energy, new hopes, new ideas and smile.

This blog is nothing specific just writing my thoughts, whatever is coming to me; however, I have read that we should plan our content, do this and that for your writing; but then I thought why to follow the rules when you can actually make one or break one.

Writing gives you peace and a way to express and tell what your heart says and every writer has his or her own style to do it; so why to follow the rules just go with the flow and maybe one day someone is reading this blog and following you or maybe dare to make one out of it.

Not all can dare to take risk; but who do, they are the people knowns by generation after generation, you will be alive even after your death somewhere in someone’s story or in this blog.

Self Love

I just love myself and since the day I have realized that loving yourself first is the best thing you can gift yourself I started doing this practice more and more; so many quotes and everyone is saying the same thing self love is important; this will help you grow, nurture and most important makes you important and valuable.

First try to love yourself to the most and then give that love to others; I have seen people who care a lot, make others happy; but if you are not happy and loved then how can you give someone that hollow happiness when you did not feel the same for your own.

Self love always gives you the strength to be independent, strong that you are not expecting the love from others; first you give the love to yourself and then people will automatically love you for that.

I have made a life with no regrets and first love yourself, do things which makes you happy whether it’s dancing on the road or maybe making your own fun.

By doing self love life seems little easy with a cup of coffee and my favourite book.

So start living the life and start loving yourself.

Never say no for CAFE.

I don’t remember since when but trust me I am a big fan of structured cafe and If I may say the ideology behind the cafe, be it for coffee lover’s; be it for the one who wants to read in a place where somebody can offer them a wonderful coffee or maybe a tea lover cafe.

What is a cafe? A place where you can write, read and see many fresh faces, who doesn’t like a radiant face?

During my college days I used to explore so many cafes and we used to write stories about them, like a proper article of 5W1H and later with this habit when I moved out of my hometown and in a new city as well I was exploring cafe’s.

I don’t know why but there was a love for coffee not for a club or for anything else.

I feel I belong to a place where people smile and greet each other and make memories, where you can call your old friend and over the cup of coffee you can talk your heart out.

And what I believe that you should go to the places where you feel most alive and happy.

Now you wonder that I am a cafe explorer and all; but let me tell you one thing that with time I have changed the concept of cafe exploring, nowadays I just go to a cafe and if I like one cafe I keep going there only; reason being the cafe people know my face, they are familiar with my taste and there is no need of introduction.

I can get my favourite place, the order on time and I have a connection with the place and of course with the people.

So now after years of exploring the cafes I have few favourite in Dehradun, few in Delhi Gurgaon and one in Mumbai; and trust me, I feel so good over there, with my favourite coffee and a book to read and sometime meeting with strangers who are now friends.

In short, we have so much to catch up and love and enjoy that I think this is the best way to live your life where you are doing the things you love and making the most out of it.

My forever friend!

This blog is very special for me, the reason being I am writing about my go-to person; my cousin sister, my friend, my philosopher and my stress buster.

We are not perfect; we fight, argue, agree and disagree on the things, we are also poles apart but I don’t remember a friend better than her and of course a sister too.

Very few lucky human’s got the chance to get two things or I may say two personalities in one person and I am glad I am one of those lucky bee!

I don’t even remember since how many days and years we are together and sharing every high and lows of our life, there are now tons of memories, no one know me that better than her and trust me even she said something which later I realise that is what I am.

She guided me with the career and what I am today is half of her guidance, it’s actually good to have a person who can guide you and clear your doubt’s in your early 20s!

We have took the trips whether it’s between the city, out of our hometown or I may say we have done a lot of things together or we have spend a good amount of years; and now we know each other so well that we ourselves don’t have a single doubt.

I mean I can tell her anything and she can tell me anything; there used to be a time when I used to feel that what if they will go to some other cities and then things got changed between us, but then with time I realise that there are some people who will be as it is no matter what and there is no way to freak out for them.

I am sure you must have the one such person in your life, all I want to say at this point just spend an amount of time with them and create more memories with them till the time it’s possible.

Story Teller

This morning while I was thinking what to write, there were so many things which was coming into my mind and I was thinking okay let me write about this topic or person and on the other side I thought okay let me write about this.

There was so much confusion about people and places I have visited and every time I meet a new person they gave me energy, happy zones, and a story to tell; however, it’s very hard to create a story out of it.

People fear writers; reason being that what if their story got published in the other round?

My Grandfather, used to tell me different stories and I guess the art of storytelling I learned from him, he was an entertainer at least for me; he never failed me to laugh.

He not only taught me the art of storytelling but he also told me how to be independent, focus on what I am doing.

I guess your people with whom you spent half of your lives they create a massive impact in your personality; thoughts and how you see life.

Many of us are still not clear with the thoughts or maybe I wasn’t a few years back but today I can say I have learned so much with each one of you who are reading this, who knows me personally and I will learn more with the new people, the journey is too long and I am sure there is so much more to learn, see and a story to tell.

Speaking of my grandfather he was the man who loved me and now he is no more, but I had my best days with him and the best stories 🙂

not all blogs can motivate you there are some which takes you the people and places.

I’m OK – You’re OK

How many of you agreed on this statement of I’m ok you’re ok?

OR how many of you believe that every individual has their own perspective towards life and how they see an individual; many of us feel that he/she is not okay, they are not doing okay things; they are not focussing towards their goals and then we categorized them in a manner we want; because we think that we are okay and the other person is not.

In my school days, we are the same we used to follow the same rule of I’m Ok but you are not; that’s all right; perfectly fine, but then what happens is when you see everyone like this that you are not okay and I don’t want you or don’t want to talk to you because I’m OK!

Maybe it works with some; but what I feel is whether saying you are not okay why can’t we just say that I’m OK and you are also OK, that’s something which is easy and acceptable that people are different; you cannot make someone just like the way you are and the way you see life.

Every individual has their own experiences, they have their own journey which is going on, you cannot judge somebody by their statements or maybe I say by the actions.

I mean try to put them in your shoes, even if someone will keep telling me you are not okay, that will make me feel low and then I will cut off with such people whereas when someone is motivating me, accepting with all my flaws I will grow from everywhere with that person.

These days my daily statement of thought is that everyone has their own way of seeing things you can’t control somebody or maybe just you can’t yell at them because of this perspective issue; because they have a perspective for what all they have around them, how their life was and is now.

Personally, we should respect every individual because life is too less for hating someone just accept people and keep moving; just say it loud I’m OK and you’re OK maybe by that you will make someone’s day or a new friend.

People do change!

Change is the only constant, isn’t it? And have you experienced something like this that you met someone after years and they tell you; you have changed a lot or maybe you didn’t change!

so what is good then you changed or you don’t?

Or what is bad then if you don’t want somebody to change with few things but they do!

Okay seems you are not getting the context so here I am telling you a story!

I met a guy through a common friend for the very first time in 2011 and we became so good friends we spend a good amount of years together and for me; he was my best friend; we used to talk for hours, meet a lot, roam and even fight a lot; later with the time, we started introducing each other to more people like his friends, my friends, his siblings and then my family.

He was not only a friend but I guess with time he became family and I guess being an outspoken person I confront him.

Then there was a day when he moved back to his hometown from my hometown; and every time I had someone whom I can talk about my life and I feel that he will be always there; the fact it doesn’t seem to happen!

He went and then I moved to another city, with the passing year we were in touch but there was a gap between us which was building and it was I guess somewhere my fault; I didn’t realize that people change with time hence I wasn’t.

And again after years we met, and I was trying to make the conversation with my best friend and then I realize that now he is no best friend and he is a different person now; he himself said PEOPLE DO CHANGE WITH TIME BUT YOU DIDN’T CHANGED!

It was somewhere a heartbreak for me, being a people minded person always seeing the best in people I realized that everyone is good and people don’t change for the one they care for, but that is what I think and it is unnecessary that what is me and you think the other person is thinking in the same direction; people have unique perspective and circumstances and they change them.

I felt bad that is it something wrong with me I am still the same and people everywhere is changing but then I realize that is the way I am, and if even your best friend is changing, there is nothing you can do with; there are few things which you can’t control; it’s okay to feel sad for some time but you cannot cry every day on the silly fact.

Let me know your thought on this.

Morning Vibes

I got up really early today to complete my blogs since I feel that I am not writing because of my travelling to hills, so somehow I made up myself to get up early this morning so I can write in peace and trust me this works, however I was trying to write on some other thing but when I was writing on that topic I was not getting the feel to continue that topic and then suddenly the thought of morning vibes came into the picture!

In my school days I used to mentioned that I am a night person and that’s why I cannot get up in the morning and work but later with the time I have realise that morning has its own beauty and positivity which keeps you awake, gives you a new direction and a lot of time with yourself to think and plan your day.

The above picture reminds me of the days when I was in Mumbai and how one fine day just to see the sun rising I got up and I have realise that I can skip the sleep to see this beautiful morning scene; how the sky changing its color, the clear voice of birds chirping around and how you can just hear your inner voice and a dim music behind your doors!

Also, adding to the morning beauty, wherever you are just try getting up a little early and you realise that morning with so much peace can give you such immense pleasure that nobody can give.

I used to start my day with a lukewarm water and post that I used to do my journalling and then moving forward my one hour of workout and then the daily chores and head towards my work.

You are in xyz profession but me time specially when you get up and before you go to sleep is very much important, even I keep reading the blogs related to morning routine, bedtime routine; why get up early in the morning and trust me I am in an agreement of every line of that blog and so here I am writing for you all about my morning vibes.

Let’s take a walk

I was a little upset from last three days and actually searching for some motivation, some clarity towards what is happening and why is it happening.

I tried to read the book of my favourite author, tried listening to my favourite music but trust me nothing was helping me and neither calming my mood. There was something I was missing and then today I have wrap up my work a little early and went out for a walk and trust me it works.

Walking around the woods, watching people around me doing their things and cool breeze there at that moment I felt alive, I have felt the freshness and then I realise that a walk to the woods and to the unknown roads are actually a mind freshening thing.

It gives you answer; it gives you the calmness and refreshment for the day, during these work from a home culture we forget to breathe and live the life.

And I guess temporary breaks like a walk is important to refresh your mind and makes you lighter 🙂

I used to go for a walk before I used to go to my office and that time was just for me and my music and for my own thoughts but for too much work I too forget to take such routines and miss the happiness and feel the more stress!

But then when I went for a walk today I actually realise what I was missing, why I wasn’t feeling motivated for my writing, because when you go out you see things around you have an urge and ideas floating at front of you, whereas inside the four walls you are just stuck with your laptop and 8inch smartphone and you are not getting the vibes you want.

so what are you waiting for take out your shoes and just go for a walk and trust me you and me both, we both deserve that one walk?

so lets take a walk and make something more valuable for ourselves.

Chai is love!

How much tea you can have in a day? Or who go out for tea?

When I was in Gurgaon during the winters we don’t even remember how much tea we are having it’s like after every half and hour I am asking somebody “ chai pine chale?”

It’s not always about the tea addiction, at a time while working and while being a whole day at home you just need an excuse and if I may say a break from everything, then the tea be it Ginger tea, lemon tea, green tea, black tea, kulhad tea what is your choice you just want that one tea and here you go all set for the day for the evening.

Yesterday only, me and my friend we went to this café, and we asked for cutting chai so in Mumbai its mostly cutting and somewhere else its like tapir ki chai.

So there we had chai and trust me chai is chai nothing can replace the chai with anything, chai have its own essence trust me.

One can never say no to chai, atleast not me.

We have so many memories with this one cup of tea, be it morning ritual with green tea, be it breakfast with milk tea then during the office break I want tea, if a friend is coming I want tea or I want to go out and have tea, whether it’s Rain or summers Tea is life.

And what a lovely combination we can have with tea, samosha, namkeen, biscuits.

Parantha I mean wow now I need chai hehe and I guess after reading this blog you want chai too.

So let me know how much chai/Tea you drink in a day?

With Love
