May you have lillies in your life. (blog marathon post 20)


Lillies that bloomed in my garden. I had planted them last year. They lay dormant, barely letting their presence felt. There were no flowers at all for a year. Just a few straggly leaves. Our of sheer laziness to do anything I let it be. I watered it like all other plants, lavishing extra care on roses, chrysanthemums and other pretty flowers which vied with each other for my attention, while the lily stood quietly in the background.
And when she bloomed every other flower paled in comparison.

Sometimes life is like that. You might think that all your efforts are going unrecognised, unrewarded.
And suddenly you get something that you never expected.

May you have a lot of lillies in your life.
And may they bloom when you need it the most.

  1. Something similar happened with me. Not in my garden but with myself. I kept working hard for something I thought was my target, but when the target shuddered, i got disappointed. Very disheartened. After about an year my phone rang. And it was for something I could have only wished for. All my hard work got paid. I never even had thought I would be rewarded like this. As they say "God gives you what you deserve and not what you ask." May be we deserve more than we ask for. Its only the dark clouds that disrupts us to see the clear sky, once they are gone its only bright light.
    Beautiful lillies, though ! And a cute catterpillar in the background. hehehe :-)

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…
