Loss.  

Would you let the gold bird be caged or set it free?

My notion – I would set it free.

We as humans are conditioned to keep emotions, loved ones, metirialistic items caged in our heart,homes or bank lockers.We don’t let loss. We are too scared of loss. And this fear of loss attracks loss.When you let the bird fly,you let it free becsuse you believe somewhere in your heart that its yours but you don’t need a cage to prove it. You havd a power,happiness,freedom and grace and then you attrack more of that feeling. And. This feeling results in abundance and absolute happiness.

Let go, fly, evolve. Let your soul find its purpose. Let your love be more dominant than your fear.

●Starting Afreash ●

Hellow Lovelies,

                           Hope you all are well. It feels great to talk to you after so long. I went under some hibernation till date. 

Here, I will be dealing the caption of my blog which is also the reason of my long term detachment. 🎈

Over this time things have changed in my life. I fell down but didn’t waste a single second  to rise again. Learnt many things in life.Had Adventure. Saw new things.  Met new people. And most importantly I fell in love. ❤

This time gap prepared me to start my life, career, hobbies and passion from the very beginning. 

Sharing my 5 ways to start life afreash. 

1. Starting all over and rebuilding from the scratch is Never easy. It will take time. Have patience.

2. Maintain a personal mission statement. And try to accomplish those little missions to start with and that will bring power energy and faith to fulfill the next one. 

3. Life will never be the way you want it. It will always surprise you. Don’t expect a perfect life. Try and make it something close to perfect. 

4. Don’t worry about big success- celebrate every little milestone that will lead to bigger dreams. Concentrate on small things. Don’t hurry to achieve in short span. Concentrate on one thing at a time. 

5. Don’t try to fit in. Do not act. Be the original you. Love the original you. Let the world accept the YOU. 🌷

                     -Yours Thriti. 💙

 

I Choose You. 

I choose you,as I wake up.

I choose you.as I feel the air on my skin. 

I choose you at 7. 
I choose you when everything around me is alive, rushing, loud.
Feet shuffling, sellers selling, Bell ringing,

I choose you when people fighting for their place;

because. I already found mine when I saw your eyes.
I choose you in the middle of my busy life at 11:30, 

As I try to scramble my brain for answers,

Life’s going but you’re all I see,

And I don’t want to, but I smile. 
I choose you when I see everyone returning at 3. 

Am I losing my mind?

Hey there! You are smiling at me.
Its 8 pm. assignments, chores and lot of other things.

And yet all I could think of was with you. 

The gleam in your eyes. the care in your heart. the love in your mind. 

How do I let go of that all?

I choose you. 
Almost midnight. 

I’m awake as I replay our memories in my mind. 

Its 12:54 and my fragile heart can’t crumble anymore.

I choose you as I get your call. 

I will never stop choosing you. xoxo.

Make The Best Use Of Life. ⏳

Make the best use of life

Life is not a bed of roses, nor a piece of cake. Life is very unpredictable. You never know what awaits you in the future. It throws you into hardships and failures. At times life becomes a battlefield running on negativity. During this phase you cannot lose hope and give up. At such times you have to make a shield by making use of whatever you have. Just like the proverb ‘When life throws you lemons, make lemonade’. 

Giving up on tough times are a sign of coward ness, rather than seeing the positive side of it which is in fact the most important and difficult task. 
Time does not wait for anyone; it moves on. Learn to move with the flow, face all situations with a smile and never. i repeat never give up. 

Because.

Being happy and satisfied in life is most important. 💜

Mordern Mirrors

People have always had the habit of admiring their beauty in mirrors. Earlier fashionable mirrors were used for this purpose. But now we have ‘selfies‘. Selfies are nothing but self-images. People are obsessed with taking the perfect selfie. 

A selfie has been defined as ‘the obsessive compulsive desire to take photo of one’s self and post them on social media as a way to make up for the back of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy’. 

It is categorised into three levels- borderline, acute and chronic. Selfies are actually clicked for self- satisfaction. People crave for ‘likes’ and comments rather than real admiration. 

Work to minimise your social media presence. Take in the best of life’s moments without the need to seek approval or commentary from others. Live your own life- don’t live before the eyes of others.

Happy blogging! 💜

19 Things I Learnt At 19!

Finally I stepped into the last teen year of my life this Feb. The lucky 19! which is pretty sad and at the same time joyful. 🙂 

So, I listed here 19 things I learnt by my 19. 

1, Create yourself every single day of your life. 

2. I’m beautiful as I am. And there is just one of me. Just one. 

3. Wake up early even if you don’t have to, you will feel so much more productive. 

4. Listen to your parents. Everything they do is usually for the better. 

5. Be feerless. Be wild. Be free. Most importantly. Be Crazy.

“You are onlr given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it”. ~ Robin Williams. 

6. Dreams don’t work unless you do. No. You just can’t end up dreaming things you want. You have to work for it hard. 

7. Laugh loudly, laugh often and most importantly laugh at yourself. Never make the mistake of taking yourself too seriously. If you do so. You may miss out some fun part of your life. 

8. Be sure of yourself. Confident and brave. 

9. Life is full of surprises and you never know who you are going to meet the next moment. 

10. Make yourself your best friend. 

11. Drink coffee. Read books. Knowledge is the most powerful gift. 

12. Get out of your comfort zone. You will be in a whole new place. You will find a whole new you. 

13. Take new opportunities. They will normally lead you to a new way of success. 

14. ” Why not me?” Should be your motto. 

15. Don’t go searching for love. 

16. How to forgive myself- There are times when I blame myself a lot of situations and circumstances. I need to learn to accept situations and love myself a little more. 

17. Its okay to feel sad. Not everyday you will have things 100%  okay and perfect. 

18, Your mind is so powerful &  can bring anything into your life.

19. Learn to say NO. I will do things that makes ME happy.

Lastly, its okay to put yourself first.

STREETS OF CALCUTTA

My city Calcutta is often referred to as ‘the city of joy’.

The streets of the city add a greater dimension to its beauty. They hum with life. They are always busy. They are filled with mystery, history and wrapped in nostalgia. The streets of Calcutta are may not be well maintained. But it shelters many lives at night. And earns living for street hawkers. Sometimes these turn into huge business area like Gariahut, Esplanade, College Street. The whole day the noise of people buying and bargaining items will fill your ear. Walking on them daily is a nightmare. The street names are connected with its past. Often named after famous personality who belonged to this city.  Calcutta is famous for its iconic trum rails. In one side of Calcuttan street you will get to see the expensive cars, huge lorry carrying industrial goods chasing the whole day. Where everyone is always into life. No one has time to wait and listen to others. Everyone is in Darwin’s competition for life. Huge shopping malls, Coffee Café, IT industries in a row. The scenario of the other side of it is extremely calm quite as if it is running late in time. It is still some decade behind, with hand-pulled rickshaws, street side tea shop serving tea in a mud cookery, olden days buildings. The streets give us a glimpse of the variety that characterises the city. The city streets represents our culture from the huge monuments of famous freedom fighters.The street foods of Calcutta – phuchka, papri chaat, jhal muri, different kinds of fries- are famous. It is often said you know,that the feel of Calcutta is hidden in it the taste of its foods. 

At night the scenario completely changes. The streets slow down. Din-and-bustle completely reduced. At that time our own known streets become almost unrecognisable. 

I always feel a sense of belonging with this city. And I do carry a lot of pride in my heart for Calcutta. I love my city. Its streets its alleys. The people. The culture.
