The heart wants what it wants.(blog marathon post 8)




Today it's a song for you. A lovely one. If you listen to it carefully in the official version which is the video above, you will hear the raw pain in Selena's voice when she says "When I was on stage and thinking of him..I felt like I know him, I know his heart and I know he what he wouldn't do to hurt me. I was on stage feeling so confident, so great about myself. But then I never knew I would be completely shattered by one thing and it would be something so stupid. But then you make me feel crazy and you make me feel like it is my fault and I am in so much pain."

 The song then starts.

Anyone who has been in love would relate to the song. One moment you are on top of the world. And then when they do something you are hurt so deeply. Love is indeed madness. There are chemical changes that happen in your body when you are in love--as the body releases many feel-good endorphins. Everything appears great and you great, fabulous, ecstatic-- till the object of your affection behaves in a way you never expected. Nothing about love is ordinary. It is always larger than life, larger than yourself, larger than anything you could possibly imagine. The Euphoria is as high as the depths that it can hurtle you to. The pain is as intense as the passion. The heart wants what it wants---and if it doesn't get it, there is a price to pay. Always. But then you are in love and the giddy heights you soar to, more than make up for the pitfalls. Unless it ends of course. And then you are truly shattered.
It would take you many months to recover and even then, there will always be a void which can never be filled.

  3. often we think, what if there were no pain, no heartbreaks.!! only if we could erase this grief..love brings joy as well as pain.there's no escape. it's a package, accept it all or leave it. we expect in return the love, the care, but it's not necessary the other person thinks the way we do.

  4. very true, heart wants what it wants and the price paid is also always HEAVY, the pain of losing a love, shatters the person badly enough, that he might take very long time to gather himself and be normal. The void is forever and as you rightly said can never be filled, as there is no replacement for the loved one that is lost !

    Don't know the song Preeti but so well said, Love is madness where we do crazy things and reasoning has no place in our lives. Been there and done that only to realize many years later what I did.

    More than the Love, the pain gets celebrated more... I have observed this, a love story (90% of them) ends up being in pain, even after the couple gets each other's companionship. Love in itself is not enough a contentment. Expectations outlive the passion. No?

  8. Love is very complicated, isn't it? When we are in love, nothing else matters. But when we are in pain, because of love, then everything matters and we keep searching for answers everywhere, but sometimes we don't get it. We feel shattered and wonder why stuff like this happens.

    In life, heart wants what it wants. Some are lucky and get it, and some are still searching for it. But one very important thing to remember is that if the heart does not get what it wants, perhaps its a sign that something better is yet to come.

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…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…
