The Great Decision…

Kennedy Lake along Highway 4 that leads into t...

I stand at a crossroad
A decision to be made
Visions of my past
Obscuring, before me what lay

Remove all doubts
Let go of all fears
Take the first step
with my mind austere

I must close my eyes
and my heart must be resolute
the time has come
for me to make my move

It has been decided
and I walk my chosen path
I shall face all hardships
with no fear in my heart

‘The’ Place to be…

Sometime in the afternoon, I found myself sitting under the shade of a tree.

Sounds of the birds singing, the wind blowing and the rustling of the leaves could be heard clearly.

I looked up above my head and witnessed a view so glorious, a view I did not expect to see.

The sun was high up, its rays peeking through the leaves of the tree as the leaves danced in the wind.

The fluffy white clouds that emerged from behind the tree looked as if peacefully floating in the sky.

Looking at this magnificent view, I felt as if I was down at the bottom of a cool ocean.

The leaves did seem to look like waves and the depths of the ocean where I lay felt much calmer.

The thought of lying on the ocean bed was so exhilarating that it made me forget all my worries.

After having spent some time in that state of trance, I picked myself up feeling revitalised and feeling the need to share such an extraordinary experience with the world.

Food for thought…

It’s just another one of those days when I find myself sitting in the comfort of my chair staring at the laptop screen and thinking of what to do for the remainder of the day.

While checking my mail I realize that I have not been making frequent posts on my blog and that, to some extent, makes me wonder what has been keeping me from doing so.

I must admit the fact that I have been busy lately with life as it is and that I have also finally started working on my book. It makes me wonder still whether I need to take out time specifically to write on my blog or is this a part of my daily routine, in case the latter one is considered then I have been neglecting an important part of what completes my day or what actually makes me who I am.

So the question then arises as to what may be the reason that I have not been writing as frequently as before. One thing is for sure, writing is my passion and one never puts his passion as second to anything else.

So then why such a change in habits, well, I’m still trying to figure that out and I’m all ears for your comments and suggestions, maybe some of you have had similar past experiences.

This feeling… it’s simply Awesome !!!

I have been writing on my blog for quite some time now and like most bloggers, I tend to write about what inspires me from the inside.

The idea of writing on your blog about something for which you would have to research about doesn’t fascinate me to much extent. I tend to consider my blog as a place where I can share my thoughts without having any restrictions.

So this feeling I mentioned earlier, im not talking about the feeling that I get when I write on my blog. It was different yet so similar to it.

A few days back I got a call from a marketing company where I had dropped my C.V saying they wanted to meet me. Of course that was the idea so I happily obliged. After a little discussion they told me that they were looking for writers pertaining to the marketing field and since I have had no previous experience regarding the same, they were unsure of whether I was up for the job. They gave me a topic to write an article on, which I was supposed to mail them by the end of the next day.

So I went back home, settled down to work, did some research on the topic and by the end of the night, I had completed the article.

As I was writing the article, the feeling i got was so exhilarating that I at once knew that this was the kind of work that I actually enjoyed doing. To be very honest, it didn’t even feel like I was doing work.

So, simply put, the feeling was just Awesome. 🙂

The Way Back Home…

Today was just another monday when returning from the office I decided to stop at my tailor’s and after finishing my business there, I had the choice whether to take a cab or walk home.

Although I was tired out from the day’s happenings, I still decided on walking back home. I knew that by taking a cab I could save twenty minutes but something inside of me insisted that I should walk back home.

So I set off for my approximately twenty minutes walk, all the time talking to myself. It turned out that I had a lot of things on my mind that needed sorting out, and what better time and setting for such a task than a solitary peaceful walk under the beautiful night sky full of glittering stars.

It really felt great as I was able to connect to my inner self. The feeling of just being able to spend a few minutes from the whole day, by myself and listening to the person within was so great that at one point I wished that the way back home would get a little longer or I should walk slowly so as to be able to extend those few minutes.

Eventually, my journey came to an end and as I got in the house I realized something else.

On my way back, I passed through a market from which I bought a few things for which I would have had to get out of the house again to buy them had I not bought them then. I also met someone outside my house whom I had some business with.

I realized that if I had taken the cab, I would have had to get out of the house again to go buy the things, I would not have met the person since I would have reached home twenty minutes earlier, and not to mention the cab fare I would have had to pay : )

So, it turned out to be a great walk back home which I very much enjoyed not only because I benefitted from it in so many ways, but because the connection I was able to make with my inner self made me enjoy my way back home…
