Letting Go

May be the hardest thing to do in life, but undeniably the most cherished gratitude that you can offer to yourself.

All of are no strangers to loss. We’ve watched family members and friends die or part away. We’ve all had romantic relationships end in a spectacular explosion and we’ve had them end in a long, drawn out silence. We’ve lost friendships, jobs, cities, and communities. And, most tragically we’ve lost belief and faith—in both ourselves and others.

Human mind has the most complicated texture in nature. It hold on to pain and memories, beyond their ability to serve us; because among life’s chaos, we believe they give us a sense of identity. Yes, it may be true, since every mistake and every pain creates us and each experience brings out our true potential. Nevertheless holding on to things that we don’t have any control over, also has the power to eventually destroy our sense of self.

The thought of letting go involves a conscious choice versus a physical action. Also it can be extremely challenging and terrifying. It can also be very excruciating because letting go is not always something you’re prepared to do: especially if your heart and mind are singing two different songs.

Sometimes life enlightens us with lessons in the hardest possible way. When we are no longer in a position to alter anything that is happening, we must awake the warrior in our self and  find courage to accept what is happening as it is.

Letting go means liberating yourself from all the negative energy surrounding you, letting go means expanding your life to see the world differently and letting go means forgiving yourselves and the circumstances that created your state of mind.

As the well-known quote, ultimately what matter is how much you loved…how gently you lived and how gracefully you let go of the things not meant for you…

 Let go….embrace yourself…just think a min….

Gratitude

Vague and unfocused mind of mine
Glanced through the darkness,
To be shattered by life
Over and over and over again,
Life knocked me down,
And I never stood-up
It was my own misery,
And it drew myself-in
The deeper it goes, the more I stuck-up
Sorrowful things have surrounded me up
No matter I shouted, No body heard me up
It was my fault that I looped through life
Making bad decisions, one at a time
As I have repented when the days passing by
Moaning for ‘the love-s’ that destroyed my life
Suddenly,
It was a mid-day of August,
The day she came to me
Like a ‘divine angel’ who came to rescue me
She pulled myself up and patted me back
Taught me up to never give-up
Said, ‘Life went on and never looks back’
I was eased with pain and it’s time to look up
I wondered as if kindness runs through her veins
Cause, she’s admirable for the things she has done
A true soul that I can count myself on
My gratitude for you, will be ‘forever on’
As long as life went on,
And no matter what!

Think a min before throwing away

“I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things we could use.”
—Mother Teresa

 According to the researchers we have produced enough plastics which can be covered whole planet. The effect of plastics to the environment is neglected by both people and governments for a long time. Unknowingly those plastics travel to the deepest parts of the sea bed and everywhere by giving us an unhealthy planet. While there are so many objections about banning plastics there should be a control mechanism to mitigate the damage to the environment by disposed plastics. But there is no way of completely limit the damage because there is no any safe disposal method introduced for plastics. Everywhere we can see empty bottles, supermarket bags, plastic straws, compact discs etc. The impact is highly damaging the planet.

The easiest and most effective method to reduce the amount of plastic waste is to reduce its production. Developing countries have a trend towards “a throw away concept” especially in urban areas. When countries become more industrialized and their per capita income increase, they generate more waste. However the amount of production depends on consumers’ patterns and their demands. Nowadays people are more concerned about getting their needs at the lowest price instead of concerning quality. Because of the low market price of low quality goods people tend to throw away their used goods without repairing and reusing them.

There are several methods which can be used to reduce the production of waste. They are improving packaging considering effect of waste stream, enhance recycling and reusing by the producer and increase the life span of the product.

The source separation, material recovery and recycling, will reduce the waste stream. Solid waste separation at household levels is continuously occuring at some level all over the world. The aim is to prevent most valuable and reusable items from being discarded. After the household level separation, waste pickers remove valuable items before garbage enters the waste stream. Currently, this happens in almost all municipalities in developing countries. Therefore, the need is extra encouragement for recycling.

Tips for reduce plastic waste

Bring your own reusable bag to the supermarket

Handover Used plastic bottles to the recycling collection centres

Use a lunchbox for packing your everyday meal

Use glass storage bottles instead of plastic containers

Say no to plastic spoons and straws & sachet packets

Escape

I run and run
Digging my bare soles in to the darkness
Only the moonlight to lit my pathway
I run to find solitude
To break away from this feeling of trapped
I run to stumble on a way
Until I can feel the breeze dancing with me
I run wildly beyond the horizons
To feel an eternal moment
Until I can feel that illuminated touch again
I run to make myself complete
To believe in the magic inside me
Only to witness
The Sun gliding through the clouds
The butterflies embracing the petals in the roses
Making me aware
That I’m the survivor
Who endured thousand agonies of spring
I rest;
Uncovering a warrior in my self
Finally to taste the summer’s bliss!

Companion

In the cold light of day
Where loneliness strikes at its best
She was all by herself
Lost,
Inside her tiny little world
On the rare nights
When the ‘demons-of-past’,
Haunted back at her
She ached alone,
All by herself
Desperately, she was
In need of someone
To cling-on to
As the past shattered her soul into unrecognizable pieces
She was afraid of constant-relationships
Her thoughts have been raped,
And has thrown away
There were no familiar voices at all
The voices,
Who could support her, love her
Or give her a hand
Deeper down,
She has lost herself,
In a place she rarely acknowledged
Her life was a mess, painted in a gray-scale
There were no beams of hopes, at all
But yet,
She was a dreamer, a fighter and a believer
Who search through the rubble of life,
To find the pebbles of happiness
Just then one day,
She found the ‘love of her life’
Who had accepted her as a whole
Sorrows started to fade away
Fantasies of a little girl in her twenties
Started to bloom-up
Though ‘he’ is not a Knight in a shining armor
He is a true ‘Companion’,
To herself,
And to her wounded heart.
