So, here is a little about me. I am an obsessive teenager who loves reading and writing. I am a little too obsessed with Harry Potter and would love to be a part of the Weasley family. I love writing, and my forte is poetry, generally about social issues.

This week we had to write some facts about ourselves that no one knows. Well, I am obsessed with calling things ‘Sunshine’. My first ever magazine that I designed and wrote for a school project was called sunshine, the first ever poem I wrote was called sunshine and my diary (which I used to write in regularly) was called Sunshine. In fact…

Motivation; a Food for the Soul


Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
— Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Hey guys!

I hope all of you have been good. I have so much to do and it seems like so little time. Do you sometimes feel like life is going too fast, and that sometimes, it’s just a little too much to handle?

It seems like yesterday that it was 2012 and now 2013 just blew past. I found myself to be a little lost for a bit. I felt like nothing was going right and that I may have lost myself in the crowd. But what I realised in the midst of that was that it was by losing myself, I found the real me. I was constantly scared of every little thing. If I had an exam, I was scared of the result; if I had made cake, I was scared about ‘what if’ people did not like it. I don’t know why I was so paranoid for such things, but I was.

Sometimes, life does not seem the best but we do need a little faith and a little courage. It is also very important to stay spiritual, to stay happy and confident. I promise, even after the darkest clouds come over, it will rain and the Sun will shine again. But it is upto our own selves if we want the sun to shine.

What I find best to do whenever I am feeling down or upset, or even unmotivated is to do a short meditation and listen to calming music. Sometimes, I watch light comedy shows. Comedy relaxes you and calms your mind. I also like to divulge into chocolates whenever I am feeling down. Do not gobble the whole packet, but a few nibbles help a lot! :)

I hope you stay healthy and safe!

I will see ya’ll soon! 😀

A Shredded Heart, A Goodbye? Never.


BEFORE YOU READ: This is unlike my usual posts. This is about someone who is extremely special in my life. I have never had the guts to show him this, and I guess I never will. But hey, instead I share it with the entire world. And if this person does stumble upon this, I love you, even more than your shadow. 

 

Mostly disturbing but still so true. I told you I missed you and the fact that I loved you, over and over again. You still did not see. I may not have hoped for you to understand, but you told me you did. You gave me that hope. I guess I should be verbal like those others, you know the ones, but I am not.

I was hoping for something, yes it’s true. My heart was lead astray – towards the balcony of that cute boy living next door. You were sweet, and we were instantly friends. At five years old, I knew you held a special place in my heart, well, I did loose my first tooth on your birthday.

I could lie and tell you that I cried. Because, trust me, I really wanted to, but even the tears have died. My heart has been shredded into pieces so many times that it is impossible to mend. So now, instead of tears and emotions, I have a deep hollow space It’s a void which I hope someone would fill someday. But maybe, my heart has decided that it was meant only for one.

So, I knew you ARE my special. I also know that I won’t ever be your ‘special’. But I am sorry that I have to repeat it over and over again, I can’t mend this broken piece of work. I wish sometimes that my heart was a ‘fill in the blanks’ worksheet, and I would instantly know all the right answers. But no, it’s not.

You said that goodbye, and it seemed final.

But the sorry? That was just an added accessory. My heart doesn’t want to accessorize, it wants to stay natural.

I guess I miss you and I always will. I love you too. But I guess you already know that.

 

You said I was special

for you it seemed.

But she said you were special

for her.

 

But as you shattered my heart

it made me want to cry.

But even the last drop of tears

had already run dry.

 

So here’s to the seventeen years

I spent knowing you, loving you

and I probably won’t stop,

Just like the morning dew.

 

But I know she’s better than me

I get that the rest are ‘more’.

But I guess it was my heart 

that doesn’t want to be sure.

 

You were a part of me

even before I knew it

So if I am not yours,

I understand, I’ll find my way.

 

I have been lost before

a million starry times

but I will teach this beating beast

to shut down this time.

 

‘Cause I can’t handle more,

I guess I’m done.

My heart comes with a logo,

that says, ‘handle with care’

I think the logo has been washed away

and so has that lovely day.

A Man, A Tiger and A Boat


Some movies are made to watch once,  and others, we watch again and again. Everyone has a different reason to watch these works of art over and over again. One might like the actors, the story, the fantasy or the fiction. Some, like me, may like the truth and the message that lies beyond the works.

ImageI saw Life of Pi, for the second time today. I did not particularly watch it for Suraj Sharma, the tiger, or the story. I saw it to bring back my faith in Myself. Over the past few months, I felt like I was missing a part of me. There is too much competition in this world, too much pressure to study and keep up. I had lost that ray of hope, and I did want it back.

Unintentionally, I ended up watching Life Of Pi, and it had one repeated message “Above all, don’t lose hope“.

The movie when watched the first time, gave me the same message, but back then, I could not understand the deeper meaning of it. This beautiful journey of a man, a tiger and a boat tells us that we are all a small part of this huge world. And if we keep faith, no matter how bad a turmoil we are stuck in, the power up there, guiding us, will help us on our way. When we give our 100% and surrender the rest to Him above, then even when we will find obstacles on our way, we would know how to survive.

We do not have much experience of the world, we haven’t seen or experienced what is out there. It is time that we open up our wings and seize the opportunities that come our way.

I would leave you all with a poem that I wrote on my main blog : http://srishtibirla.wordpress.com/2012/11/26/the-art-of-letting-go/

Okay Guys! Let me know what you thought about the movie in the comments below!
