Home is where your heart is.

How many times does it happen in our lives, that we feel the urge to push open the  front door of our house and run away somewhere very far?  Somewhere far from a place called “Home”.

What is the literal meaning of home? It basically means  a residence of a person, family or household or the place in which one’s domestic affections are centered. In short where our family is and yet we want to break free, why?

Simple because we are not happy there,  our heart lies somewhere else. Yes we can be unhappy at times within our homes, can be for unlimited reasons. One of the biggest  reasons could be adjustment problems with our family members, could also be our own mother, in  rarest of  occasions. We could also go to the extent of living separate.

To think of taking a respite for a while is different, but to move permanently, we need to make many changes, take many challenges, if it is worthwhile its fine, if not try giving it  second thought. Say if we have to continue in the same place without any alternative, then what?

We get emotionally hurt because we let others hurt us, they abuse us once we abuse ourselves manifolds by pondering over the same issues. Let go of things at times, let go of possessions, let go of worries, let go of  setbacks, move on from all this, it is in the mind where a person is hurt not in a place.

Cleanse your heart of hatred, it destroys us more than anybody else can. Try innovative ways of dealing with domestic issues, even decorating our house or doing gardening at times can deviate our mind from standing issues, and some issues, tend to subside with passage of time. Major ones can be  sought out with an elder, a good friend, a consultant , a legal adviser. Running away is not the only way of combating domestic issues, where many people can be affected by our decision.

We must try to bring back our heart where our family is, where our Home is.

Love is Powerful.

Love is a very powerful emotion. It is very difficult to define Love. Each and every definition would fade away before its majestic persona. It can be understood only when you feel it. All of us have experienced it at some time in our life, it has different meaning for different people. But we mostly say we are in Love when we fall for the opposite sex, mostly. So even I am not untouched by Love. And yes It is so powerful, it can make you do the unbelievable things. Love brought out the poetess within me. And I wrote this sonnet, I would like to share it with you. It was a beautiful moment, could not keep it to myself.

My sonnet of Love

I know you Love me,

And I love you too.

Like Christmas past,

And fountains new.

 

Where sorrows died,

But tulips grew,

Where ended sighs,

But swallows flew.

 

I know you Love me,

And I know it’s true.

Like divine lyrics,

Sung  by few.

 

You are my Savior, my valiant knight.

My heart foresees the shining light.

 

 

Be your own Angel.

        Do we believe in angel’s? Some of us do, some of us don’t, its a matter of reasoning and our beliefs.But at some point in our lives many of us desired that there should have been an angel, who would have made our deepest dreams come true or at times protected us from something we feared most.

       Suppose there were angels out there but still if we could not see them or get connected to them. So, should we leave it there or, …..’or’ is an important word. Or can we find the angel within us?

       We all are unique, important and special, not only for our parents, relatives or friends but also for ourselves. We all have a soul, an energy, a power, which can influence others, then why not ourselves.

       We should try to recognize the strength we have within us. When we become self aware of our weaknesses and strengths, we can curb the unwanted and cultivate the ones we need.

        This self realization connects us to the angel within us, which not only gives us strength to fulfill our dreams but also protects us from our scariest nightmares.

        So all my sweet angels, be your own Angel.
