At The Threshold Of Life….

This post happened because of few of my friends, fellow bloggers and readers, who even though did read my poems, seemed to enjoy my prose a bit more and asked to see them in equal measures. I am thankful, they were quite frank enough with me in what they expect from me. A true writer is one who listen to his or her readers voice or opinion, as they are the reason why you are still writing. Everyone’s time is precious, including your readers, so I believe give them what they want as they invest their time in reading your article. Oh ya I will surely keep penning poems too, for my poem loving crowd and kind of for my soul’s sake.

At The Threshold Of Life…

When one think about life, what do one see in front of them. Are we the kind of person we want us to be? Are we the kind we want others be to us? What exactly we picturise about our life when we see it in front of us in a screen? I am sure this makes us to look into our souls. What we let into our minds shapes the state of our souls. Our faces are a visible reflection of the invisible soul. A worried brow, an angry set to our mouths, a sly look in our eyes may reveal a miserable soul. Whereas, kind eyes, a gentle look, a warm and welcoming smile; despite the wrinkles, blemishes, and other disfigurements; become the marks of inner transformation. We can’t do much about the faces we were born with, that’s true! But we can do something about the kind of person we are growing into. There’s nothing like the beauty of a loving heart. Be slow to judge others. Be compassionate to others. Compassion is understanding the troubles of others and reaching out.

The best gift you can give to others may be your time. Time management is not about clock-watching, it’s about making the most of the time we have. If you spent your time with some one who is in need of it, then I would say that’s your best investment. Most of the relationships fail because of the lack of quality time spend together with each other. When words become weapons, our relationships soon become casualties.

Physical and emotional pain can often feel like aggressive adversaries. Problems jabs me from the right and left, sometimes some from behind, and to make things worst some problems punches me square in the nose. Temptation to give up or wishes to escape in this weary situation sometimes seems the first option but that doesn’t allow us the vision of the end of our current battle . The only way to face such situation is to face it head on and fight our own battles. It’s ok to fail, but you fought your war and that is all it matters.

I sometimes feel terrible after waking up from a dream, to realise that I am living that dream and it’s nothing but my life. I just got carried away for some time.
Many of us, that is inclusive of me, live as if the pain we have known is all that there will ever be.

See the flowers in the Meadows, has anyone asked whether they are happy or sad when they bend to the tune of the wind? In the faces of nature there are wonders that never cease. Every season brings a reason to rejoice. And I think that’s all it matters…

The following is something I read and wanted to share with you all…. how true every sentence is.
Happiness … keeps you Sweet

Trials … keep you Strong

Sorrows … keep you Human

Failure … keeps you Humble

Success … keeps you Glowing,

But only Faith … keeps you going !

Sometimes you are not satisfied with your life , while many people in this world are dreaming of living your life .

A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead dreams of flying , while a pilot on the plane sees the farmhouse and dreams of returning home .

That’s life !

Enjoy yours … If wealth is the secret to happiness , then the rich should be dancing on the streets .

But only poor kids do that .

If power ensures security , then VIPs should walk unguarded .

But those who live simply , sleep soundly .

If beauty and fame bring ideal relationships , then celebrities should have the best marriages .

Live simply , be happy ! Walk humbly and love genuinely !

Uhmm! What do I say abt myself. Love to read, write, watch tons of movies and loves music. Educated enough to enlighten a few things to a few some who shows the interest to listen. This is me in a nutshell. Will let out little by little, like the cat out of the bag. Ok I think it's time to let out one more passion of mine, which I as much love as writing, and that is cooking. Trying out different new recipies with a slight variation added of mine makes my culinary skills a little adventurous cuisine.

  1. Absolutely well said Anamika that if you can give someone your time then probably its the most precious thing. One can take back all the things that one has given but cannot take the memories made. I enjoyed it reading. Also I really loved was ‘Faith keeps us going’ Also there is this saying that when the going gets tough, the tough gets going. Faith or believe whatever you say is that one aspect that makes things work and work for good. Thank you for sharing!💕

    1. My God…I took two days to reply you back, cause I took some time to digest all what you have said. First let me thank you for all the kind adjective words you used. Shukriya, Nandri, Merci..,i knw these are not sufficient enough to let you knw my appreciation for your gesture.
      No Sridhar avargale, i am not definetly not a painter. I pick images according to the thoughts I want to convey to the readers. That’s it.
      Sridhar ji, responding to the reader’s choice is a good way to keep your readers happy with your work and it lets you to grow as a writer. Keeping a good rapport with them helps you to knw where I lag or where i need to improve like how you told, you would like to see more of my prose. Such feedback definetly let me grow as a person and then as a writer.
      And I am not young as you assume me to be. Thank you once again for your most wonderful gesture and open way of saying things. I appreciate and admire that quality in you .Thank you ji for the blessings too. May the Almighty guide you and keep you always Sridhar ji. Bon nuit Monsieur.

      1. Perfectly OK ji.
        We all have our own priorities/responsibilities and sometimes replying can take some time.I fully understand and appreciate.
        There is nothing there to get complicated for the digestion process to get confused.
        They are the simple words in the form of a sentence,expressed as a result of thought process over the time ( I mean not an instant maggie noodle response ) aprreciating the multi talented personality,This is my own thinking. (my perspective ).Others have libery and freedom to differ.
        It’s true ,we all feel happy and eleated if the readers and followers or even visitors resonate with our thought process,expressions etc.
        It’s not just I write-you read formula !( I don’t care ) or you write-I like formula ( to get into ones good book ). or I like-youlike/Ifollow-you follow formula.( As if one is curious to know how many follows one has or how popular one is etc- you scratch-I scratch syndrome )
        Anamika Ji,The whole thing churns down to the ‘Likemindedness’.
        Otherwise what is the meaning of the proverb’birds of same feather flock together ‘
        True one can agree to disagree in a mature way.After all each one is correct in their own way.
        Glad that you are gifted in that you listen to the others view/suggestions etc. with a kind heart.
        Regarding-Blessings
        Blessings are always there from my side you know why ,I tell you………
        “A blessing is a circle of light drawn around a person to protect, heal and strengthen.”
        John O’Donohue
        Almighty & myself always move together..He is kind to me…I don’t have any complaints.Dekho….dekho …I can see your surprised bright eyes !
        Have great Monday and also rest of the days with full of happiness and peace of mind along with good Health

    1. Thank you for your frank opinion.. but those few who comments in my prose counts for me as they are my motivators, as.they motivate me to perform better and become good at both prose and poem. My poem loving crowd will always have my poem, but I deeply care for my few but true prose lovers too as a writer.
      Thank you much for your frankness.

  4. I have also posted a quote by someone which is on the time- priority, do check it out…
    U have written about life beautifully with the set of examples and the human qualities…
    It is true that we should be happy & acknowledge whatever we have irrespective of complaining and being jealous of others… For many where we r is only the heaven still we want more… We forget that human desire is endless, even the billionaires want more…
    Time will pass & everyone will loose there charm the only thing that will remain is the way we enlightened the world with whatever we had…
    The last examples are wonderful but this inner soul of human being never understand that unless they have lived the same life… No matter how we explain the flame of desire can’t be extinguished…
    From ur threshold I have been reminded of the reality. One advise, Do you think I should go for glory or live the present care free?
    This time I have not praised u as much as u deserve for writing it😉…

      5. I am glad to be a source of enlightenment and inspiration…..in the small way, I am doing now Anonymous. Yes ,you are quick and smart enough to find out that the river flows carefree and in its own course but at the end it benefits all those on shores and joins in the sea. Same way bird flies freely all the day: but at the end of the day it responsibily comes back to it’s flock and the nest. All freedom comes with a responsibility and thus become the sweetest burden.

      6. Someone told me that he doesn’t like to address me as anonymous… So, I asked him he could call me anything he likes but he didn’t have any idea so,then I told him that he can call me Mr.A coz it stands for his name & Anonymous… Here is also the same case I think….
        Very well explained about responsibility but I still believe that life is the biggest joke & we all r striving for absolute nothing. We the humans r destroying this planet like the virus does to our body. It is very correctly predicted that humans will be the reason this planet will come to an end….

  5. I had to spend more than what I used to spend for a single post to feel your writing..
    Truly amazing write up and I should say heart touching.
    “Be slow to judge others” true we can’t judge anyone on first go…
    “Time management” This is one thing most people don’t understand and lose their control over life…
    “Terrible dream like life” this happens to every one I guess at times….
    “It’s ok to fail” Only thing that matters is you tried..
    At last Faith is everything we all need to lead our life…
