Some important things (Blog marathon post 13)

http://www.daniellelaporte.com/


Found the above visual on Facebook and it led me to check out the website (click on pic to be taken to it) and I discovered that it has some pretty amazing stuff. Little things in life which matter such a lot, yet which we brush aside in our quest for bigger cars, bigger homes, more space.

What about the space in our hearts?

That is so important. It is important to let go of the ego and tell someone how much they mean to you, if they do.
Yet, it is also important to recognise when to walk away from a relationship which isn't helping you grow.

It is important to hold on to some things and have patience.
But then it is equally important to turn you back and shut the door on things that prevent you from being the best you can be.

It is important to have great friends.
But it is equally important to spend time with yourself, in quiet solitude, enjoying your own company.

It is important to give in.
It is also important to not give up.

And if you have figured it all out, you have conquered life.

I know haven't. I revel in it's imperfections.
Grateful to have everything I do.
Happy to be able to  touch lives with my words.
Gratefulfor all that I have received.

and I think that is important too.

  2. It's all about knowing yourself and making right decisions at the right time. Sometimes you need to take such decisions whether a good one or a harsh one. Sometimes it may break hearts, but it's all for good. Atleast in a day you need to have an hour or two for yourself to think, to focus, to feel what you want to achieve.

    Mandy Hale, in her book: The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass, mentioned: "If you learn to really sit with loneliness and embrace it for the gift that it is…an opportunity to get to know YOU, to learn how strong you really are, to depend on no one but YOU for your happiness…you will realize that a little loneliness goes a LONG way in creating a richer, deeper, more vibrant and colorful YOU..!!!"

    Keep writing.. Keep Inspiring..!!! :)

  6. Thanks for the beautiful thought, Preeti! It touched my heart, because I could relate to many of the things which you mentioned in this post. As they say, we should learn to adjust to both worlds :-)

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…
