Where innocence lies.

The night is aphotic, but anyhow it passes leaving the trees, the stems, the flowers, the petals looking aqueous; leaving the eardrums still attentive to the sounds like a berserk ape beating hundreds of metal cans all together. Another day arrives when the clouds are still masking the sun.

Her little palm grabs my index finger, pulling gently, almost rushing me to lead her to the already traveled road to the school. The crispness of the air outside fills the lungs, inspiring them to ignore another shot of smoke injected in today. Her little feet travels jumping over the puddles, while I enjoy the morning bird sing into my ears and a drop of arctic like water lands gently on my right cheek. I wish all my worries are snatched away from me today, no matter how much I try to hold them close to my hurting chest. I wish to see a speeding cloud incoming and hauling me away on its cushion like pew. Every new wrinkle on my skin is forcing me to draw a bit more of my interest out of the irksome responsibilities, which once I thought was an achievement at work.

While things that don’t really matter in life engrosses my mind, I step in the puddle. Right there her candy coated voice interrupts my thoughts.

“Did your socks got wet?”, her curiosity sounded through her smile.

Her innocence brings me back to life. This is reality. I know I was missing out on a lot and I now know it is time to turn around.

Being brave or coward?

What is more important really?

Being brave or being a coward?

Being brave you will stand up against problems; like a super hero. A biggest challenge for most super hero we see is having a girlfriend. Why? Because after the evil they face every day, themselves are not even sure if they will be coming back home alive at the end of the day. Being brave can cost life. If not life at least comfort and peace of yours and others around you who are your loved ones.

Being a coward you keep up a low profile. You live with your head down no matter where you come and go. You do not have to worry about standing up against what’s wrong. You barely even have to think what is wrong and right.

Life is full of dilemma. What if spider-man realizes, what MJ goes through every day worrying about him? What if Super-man ends up peeping inside Lois Lane’s head and discovers the terror she goes through every time she has to see him fighting with attacking monsters and surviving around Kryptonite? Is that realization really worth of being brave and saving the world?

This is the thought I recently had. The deeper I tried thinking about it the more confused I felt. Think of taking some big risks for the better of the world or think of doing something you think is right ethically; and now think of the consequences you have to deal with. Now, put yourself in the shoes of your loved ones. see the whole situation through their eyes and ask yourself, “Is it worth putting them through it?” How does it feel to realize how seriously they worry about you when you are doing something that you think is “right” or as an act of bravery?

Now, get back in your shoes and think what is more worth, Being brave or being a coward and “Just deal with it”.

Life is something!  isn’t it?

Mondays of light and dark

The following is dedicated specially to “Monday”.

Everybody duck; Monday is here; don’t let it see you. Shake off that laziness and back to work you go or school. Whatever that is you are doing in current state of life. Remember that Bangles song? “Just another Manic Monday.”

Manic Monday

So, here is an interesting thing to lead you to the part where it feels like it was worth viewing this page, a coin. The coin is something that holds two totally different sides that will never be noticed by each other, even though being on a same body. There are barely few such things out there in the world that holds two controversial sides to each other yet belong in a same body. One of those is the most amazing creation of God. That is a human body.

A human body holds two things, Light and Darkness. I am not just talking about the part that from outside it feels the light and inside its all dark. I am talking about our most precious assets heart and mind.

God made our body with bones; muscles; tissues and lots of cells. The muscles are capable to bring us towards the light. Light here refers to the strength to work hard. God designed our body in such a way that the more we train our body to work harder the longer we can keep going. Keeping healthy is a key here.God also gave us mind and heart. This heart sometimes has its own funny business going on when it is broken. That is when it makes us see only the darkness. We forget absolutely about the light, because when heart is broken we only feel the darkness. Worse than that is our brain.

A powerful light shines in the dark.

Like it says up there this article is dedicated to Monday, this brain of ours is our enemy when Monday shows up. Every time your body tries to bring you towards the light of hard work and progress, sometimes it is this brain being all lazy and not letting the body do its job. That is why it causes the darkness. It directly becomes an enemy of working hard or getting out of bed and starting to do over the things after two days of fun. Do not let this darkness get to you.

There are ways to start a good smiley Monday. Crack a joke with your barista in the morning.

When he/she says, “here’s your coffee”.

You say, “Thanks a latte”.

Last Monday I tried this it works perfect. This girl hands me my coffee and asks me, “Would you like your receipt, sir?”

I took a sip of my coffee and said, “Depends what is your return policy.”

Luckily she gets the funny side of it and there is a light laughter cracking up. Even the woman behind me heard and smiled. That start of the day felt so good, that feeling of goodness stayed with me till I was done working. Some of you may find there is no joke in it, which is okay because most of the people I told that joke later on to, didn’t find it funny either.

The point is to give it a happy try to start with, shaking off all the laziness and there you have it.

Good luck!!! Make people laugh today, that’s all Mondays are for.

Now on, Mondays are laughter days. Use it to ease into your work routine again.
