What’s your coffee like?

We are all broken. Yes, you read it right. We are all broken, in some way or the other. A heartbreak, death, failure, lost friendship, loneliness, disease – the demons are endless and varied. It’s a spectrum, where every person has their individual place reserved. Yet, we fail to acknowledge, accept, deal with such a simple truth. We fail to be a support, a shoulder, a helping hand to others. We choose to not look beyond ourselves. We worry our own worries, magnify our own problems, fail to rejoice life’s little moments of happiness, forget to be kind to others, judge galore and appreciate paltry.

No one, not you, me, the richest, or the strongest, the oldest, or the holiest is perfect – perfection is an illusion. Our scars help us stand out, tell our stories, make us human, be our lessons. There’s nothing wrong with pulling down your walls and opening up to others. It’s not a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of strength, a strength which not many have, a strength which gives you the courage to love back even with a broken heart. It’s okay to be scared, afraid of another scar, fearsome of the negativity others may poison you with, but it’s also okay to trust, to take small steps towards an outstretched helping hand, to acknowledge another’s love, to shed the cloak of invisibility, to remove the mask of a smile.

Life may seem difficult when you’re facing it all alone. But you don’t have to. Help comes to all those who ask for it. You just need to ask. There’s a heart out there which will make your breaks whole. Don’t let go of that hope. Also. Be that hope to others.

Graciously Yours!

Turned 22 for the first time!

Hi!

Turned 22 for the first time today, for all those who do not believe in re-births and reincarnations. 

And a list of another firsts which happened :

— I got my first ISD call from Jakarta. Talking after long to a close friend, just like those good old Whatsapp free tech days, feels so satisfying.

— And thanks to Whatsapp (okay, maybe it isn’t that bad!), got my first voice note from a friend who’s shifted to Japan recently.

— Got not one but two cakes simultaneously smeared over my face. Is chocolate cream facial better or pineapple flavored cream facial better? And what if you get both done together? Will they be compatible? What do you think?

— For the first time my crush called me and sang to me but maybe I’m over him now. Not because he sang. But because… Another day, another story.

— And for the first time, I lived through a day, in a very, very long time, without a care of what might happen in the future and the innumerable hurdles we might have to cross through the journey of life.

Graciously Yours!

 

P.S.: What was your first today? I am sure you must have done something for the first time today! Think, think.
