CHANGES

It has been almost a year since I have been observing a tree through a window. Many days and months have passed by and all I could see was Changes.

It’s wonderful when nature reveals truths of life to me or may be I’m being too philosophical nowadays. Those slight changes they are so eye-catching I couldn’t have stopped myself from letting that go unobserved. You may wonder what kind of change I’m talking about. Yes, of course that’s not a new thing but I would like to share with you what that CHANGE meant to me. Have you observed any tree ? All the year round? Yeah, I did so for the first time when I shifted to a new place. Last year that tree was left with no leaves, to be precise not a single one. But still I could see birds sitting and chirping on the branches of that tree morning and evening. It looked beautiful to me. But once I wondered is this tree dead because  I never saw a leaf on it, since the day I shifted to this new place.

As the days went by I waited hopefully to get a view of greenery in front of my window. But, it took so long. Spring came, yeah and that was the time when that tree could be seen in lush green leaves. It made me smile. I have always been a nature lover and seeing such close change it was extraordinary.

 But at the present moment it makes me realise some truths of life. Things which may look barren and dead from outside may not be such from inside. There was life within that tree which I failed to notice because I was busy in search for the outward beauty, the leaves. Similarly people may look hollow and lifeless but the fire of enthusiasm still burns within them all night long. May be their season of perfect flourishment has not yet arrived. But the hope still remains, that spring is no far. It’s just a matter of time and the cycle goes on and on. Changes are the part of life. We may fall and stumble at some point in our lives, they are just a phase of life, to make us a new person, from outside and inside. No one’s spirit and soul is dead…there is life within everyone…may be one just needs to explore oneself closely and deeply to understand and feel those special changes which makes them  a person in the long run of life.

NATURAL are these CHANGES. When a  tree can become habituated to such changes all the year round. 

Why can’t we? 

Let’s make us bold enough to accept such changes. As there is a saying after the sunshine there is always a rain. Changes they may break us but eventually they make us.

One in a Million

God has send a beautiful angel in our life,

To be with us in every thick and thin,

To guide us, to guard us, to nurse us,

To be our friend, our buddy.

With whom we can share our secrets, our happiness and sorrows.

Though at times she may scold or thrash us,

But that’s for our good,

To make us a better person.

Never forget the way she carried us safely in her womb,

Pledging to take care of us and love us, even before we were born.

Never ever underestimate your mother,

The challenges she faces for you is incredible.

She is worth more than a superhero, most of us admire.

She is one in a million.

She is Your Mother.

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all mommies, the would be mommies and the future mommies.

U-turns

IMG_8809 Life has always been unusual to me. Those unexpected u-turns in my life, will always be remembered by me. Most of the time we plan something, but either they happen differently or they do not happen at all.

 

“People may plan all kinds of things, but the Lord’s will is going to be done.” (Proverbs 19:21)

           

This may have happened in your lives too. I don’t think I am an exceptional to it, because life is all about surprises. You may have no idea what would happen the very next year, the very next month, the very next week, the very next day, the very next hour,the very next minute and the very next moment. Everything is planned beforehand by God. All you have got to do is, keep accepting your fate. One day you will surely become a flower blossoming among weeds. All the trials and tribulations (those u-turns) that you go through may at one time seem wrong, but it is always for your good, making you strong physically, spiritually and mentally. At times it may happen that we are unable to fulfill our heartfelt desire of doing something. We may get strolled in some different unexpected path which we never wished for or dreamt of. But you need not worry, everything happens for a reason, for your good, for your growth and for your betterment.

 

As we all know there are two sides of a coin. One side may be considered as a negative aspect and the other as a positive aspect. Similarly when any situation arises in our lives, it depends on our thinking and our understanding that whether we are going to accept its positive or negative aspect. The moment we take it positively, considering as I said before, that everything happens for good. Then, you will definitely find yourself in the right track, always moving forward never looking back. But, when you accept its negative aspects, you go astray though moving forward, but this time not in the right but the wrong track. Make wise choices.

 

    “What you think is the right road may lead to death.” (Proverbs 16:25)

  

Life is all about u-turns,and the path which you choose after such u-turns.
What I am right now is because of those u-turns and those paths. This is what has made me and will always be making me, better and better throughout my life.
