Life is such a baffling proposition
that I’m often awed by the ONE
who conceived it. But the thing that perplexes
me most about it is the uncertainty. How fast it seesaws between the shades of
joy and sorrow. Or, how fast it oscillates between an inviting and a melancholic
future. Or, how just a small inconsequential thing sends everything spiraling downwards?
Something which seems right at one
moment gets pushed to the deepest of abysses at the very next.
Why is it so
hard to be happy at times? Don’t you wonder?
There are occasions when we might
do everything right, follow every rule to the tee but all that awaits at the
other end is disappointment. Why does that happen?
At such forks in life we begin
questioning our worth, doubting our journey so far and sometimes even avoiding the
I think a lot of it has to do with the
fact that our happiness rests on those we love or on transient aspects of life.
While all that is fine and absolutely normal, I think it is beneficial to
remind ourselves from time to time that we are good enough too. Just tell
ourselves as often as we can that we are the best of what we can be, that we
are making the best effort to live with our quirks and short comings. It is imperative
that we stay happy with ourselves too.
You know from the moment I woke up today
I have been feeling blue; an uneasiness perhaps. I don’t know why. Just one of
those days probably. So I thought why not do an exercise today, in tune with
taking it easy on the blog topic front this week?
I think it is beneficial to remind ourselves from time to time that we are good enough too.
Why not remind myself that I’m good
enough too? Why not pat my own back? Not about the good people or things that
surround me just for being ME
. A list perhaps of all that is me? Who knows I
might end up feeling better at the end of it?
What do you say? Shall I give it a
I’m a beautiful person at heart.
I’m independent and that’s liberating.
I don’t fear travelling alone.
I’m like a bird who flies at her
I’m not afraid to cry when it
I don’t pretend to like someone if
I don’t. I’m real.
I’ve my own views, opinions and I’m
definitely not apologetic about it.
I remember my hurts, they make me
I cut off people who upset me from
my life for I know I’m better off without them.
I try to solve most of my problems
myself. I like to be in control.
I get depressed and I’m not ashamed
of showing my feelings.
I don’t change into anyone’s
doormat to get my purposes served.
I get angry too but that’s alright
for I’m human and not a puppet.
I’m weak sometimes but I know how
to hold myself strong in spite of that.
I can be devastated but still I can
walk the distance if need be.
I sulk, I fret, at times regret but
that’s all me and I like me.
Well, that’s the list. Though it
didn’t completely turn my frown upside down but I think I’ll get there. At
least, whenever I feel low I can see the list and start feeling better.
Wait. Why don’t you do a list
too? Once in a while it’s alright to applaud your own self you know!
