Emotional Sink

I recently watched a movie named 'Dear Zindagi'.  Few of the thoughts discussed in the movie were inspiring. In the movie a psychologist tells his patient about how there is a separate partner to do a separate activity. For eg. a friend for having coffee, a friend for gossips, a friend for shopping. It's unfair to expect the same person (often the person one is in a relationship with) to be the all-in-one person. This is so true. So simple, mostly unimplemented and so true. We live our lives always looking for that one person who can be our everything like a superman or a superwoman and there's no such person . That merely leaves us disappointed - disappointed because we have created an imaginary person who doesn't exist and spend all over lives looking for her/him.

I recently started practicing heartfulness meditation and I realize now after my 34 years of existence that we are the answers to our questions. I pray everyday that my expectations and judgements of others melt away and leave my mind with enough space for better thoughts that can focus on myself; that the atmosphere is the biggest emotional sink one can have- we are all  made of the same matter that stars and other bodies are made of; that happiness is a choice ; that thinking positive is a muscle that has to be exercised so that it functions everyday; that immunity can be increased by merely being happy; that miracles happen and miracles manifest from our beliefs.

Tired of being the bored version of myself

A close friend of mine whatsapped me this morning and asked me to write again. So, this one is for her..the one that reminds you of the moon.

So, what awesome thing did I do today ? I enrolled myself for Zumba classes ! And why would I do that ? Because I am a terrible dancer..I can't move my legs and shake my body to a tune. So I enrolled for Zumba just like I enrolled for Salsa 11 years back, for exactly the same reasons.

I did something even more awesome last week. I got myself a tattoo. It's a series of 5 birds flying from inside to outside. I felt so liberated after doing it. It was a dream come true.

As we go through all the laundry , grocery, food, maid , child and office-work management, we forget about someone very important and that's US. And I forgot about me and I forgot about me for the past 4 years perhaps and now I find a very evolved non-adventurous non-risk-taking bored version of myself . I think it's time to go underwater and say WTF !! (you can try saying that but you just can't ! LOL )
