LIFE IS TOO SHORT!

 

Out there we started a long chit-chat 

She stood nearby us and glanced at

With confusion on her face and hopes in her eyes

She approached us with fear in her voice

Handling a paper she stood beside

To know what was mentioned inside

I casually read it with a normal sigh

But for her to handle this was pretty high

A clinical prescription with a few tests

Without which she would never again be the best

Trying to decipher the blood-red rashes on her skin

Though I could barely diagnose anything

Her prognosis was good but with medicines only

Sadly for her own treatment she had no penny

Standing there helpless with white coat

I could only see saliva swallowing down her throat

I realized over small things the way we cry

When these people have lived their life so dry

And once again to us she taught

That to grumble and depress Life is too short!

Life’s Wisdom Tooth

Publishing something after such a long time! Almost more than a month! This entire month I figured out a lot many things about myself, surrounding world, people and a lot more and yes, I’m going to share many things with you all!

Reading the title you might have imagined that painful wisdom tooth you get. Eventually it gets way too much irritating and then ultimately you have to get it removed. Why remove it? It is a part of the body after all. But still it becomes necessary to throw it away due to the pain and irritation it causes which is unbearable. But learn to let that wisdom tooth go!

Similarly, in our lives we meet a number of people. Some in the form of friends, some are our own natives, and some our colleagues. Many of these become close to us. We share good and bad times with many of them, we fight and get back together and we share a healthy relationship with them. But at times we find that not all are worth maintaining a healthy relation. And at such times you need to let go off certain ones. No no, don’t get me wrong here! What I wish to tell you all by this is, you end up doing everything for the people around but they ultimately exploit you! I had recently read a quote “If you wish to rise high up, you need to let go off all those who weigh you down”. Initially I had felt how can we push people away. It is emotionally difficult. But sometimes you have to because they pull you down.

Excess of anything leads to toxicity. Even medicine, which usually cures turns out to be harmful when consumed in excess. You don’t realize how toxic can someone be untill you breathe the fresh air! Learn to let go off those who emotionally drain you out. It is really important for you. People aren’t bad, sometimes situations and experiences make them like that. But deep inside you do come to know if that person is worth your trust.

Make those kinds of connections where you don’t talk to them for days but it’s still all the same. Those kinds of connections where you don’t have to think if that person will judge you. Those kinds of connections where you don’t need to put efforts just to please them or keep them in life. You know that they are anyways going to be there. Infact you have your own beautiful life to make the best of it. Then why live it pleasing others? Those connections where you don’t have to show how much you care or love. It’s already there because of the healthy trust you build! During my years of hostel life which again taught me a lot, this was something I’ll never forget that- you don’t always need to be present physically to make people feel better!

Scared

Scared as hell
As I look in that crystal mirror
Showing me reflection
Of my own self in terror

Scared as hell
When I can see the upcomings there
Walking on a path
Which I know gonna lead nowhere

Scared as hell
I’ve given all of myself to an unknown
Who’s wicked side I know
But they haven’t yet shown

Scared as hell
As I’m aware of that deceptive mirage
Leading me to a disaster
Which is now a complete camouflage

For every person who faced the darker side of the one whom they trusted. For every person who faced consequences of ‘blind trust’. Choose your people wisely because human is worst species on Earth!

Hostel Life- My Best Teacher

A few days ago, I was just scrolling through my camera roll and tears rolled down my eyes. You know when you have created memories at a place, you can never forget that place. Hostel, is one of the place for me where I’ve created memories. It is a place where I’ve had a lot many experiences. Experience is the best teacher and hence my hostel life proves to be my best teacher.

Every person has different turning points in their lives which turn out to be an opportunity, sometimes a lesson, or at times an experience for them. And I have had all of these in my hostel life. These turning points become an integral part of lives as they always open up a completely new world before you! For me, hostel life was one of the turning points. It changed me, my thought process, my behavior, my personality, my approach towards life. This turning point happened to me after my 12th grade (junior college) when I had to move out into a completely new city for higher education.

New connections, new place, new residence and most importantly being away from home. Coping up and adjusting with these wasn’t an easy task for me. But I knew that this is for my own betterment and so went on with the flow, though I’m not a person who goes with a flow. I always need some twists and turns in life. I hate being monotonous. Haha! Yes hostel life has always been something which bought twist and turns to my monotonous life! There are uncountable things I’ve learned here from different sources. Friends, college, colleagues, teachers and strangers too. Culture and people in a new city truly has a lot to teach you ! And hence moving into a new place actually proved to be a boon. Being an introvert it was initially difficult for me to socialize. But I soon got along really well. You know when everything just falls at it’s perfect place! Perfect roommates, friends, perfect space.
It’s been four years and I’m so much in love with the change in me! Change in behavior, change in mindset, introvert being to ambivert being, change in personality, habits, and a lot more.

This single writeup is too small to describe the ‘entire me’. Sometimes I just think if at all I would have never taken this opportunity, would have never moved to a new place, I would have never ever evolved so much. I would have never explored myself, would have been a complete monotonous minded person! Maybe I wouldn’t have thought of writing or playing guitar which are now my favorite hobbies. And this is the reason I gave my blog, the title “Explore Yourself”. This thought makes me feel so good about my decisions as hostel life is the place where I have discovered my own self. After all you’re not evolving if you don’t have a thrilling life!

Around 2 months back I had mentioned in my post Blogging Anniversary about starting a ‘lifestyle’ section. I was wondering what I’ll be writing in the same. I’m not a shopheholic person, neither am I a fashionista. But now I got something to talk about! Yes, my own ‘Hostel Lifestyle’. There are people out there who aren’t able to cope up, adjust in a new city. I hope my articles on what I learnt in my hostel life helps you in your journey of life and make your life more meaningful in a new place!

None knows the Real You

Your mind comprising thoughts enormous
Wishing to shout through silence within you
But timid soul never dared to
Because none knows the real you

World around you eager to judge
Your feels percieved only by a few
But fragile soul never expressed
Because none knows the real you

They speak, you listen each time
Though your words weren’t so new
But receptive soul never voiced
Because none knows the real you

The introvert within you so silent
And that extrovert planet makes you blue
But stonehearted soul never bothered
Because none knows the real you

In their lives, you act as an enigma
About whose essence, they had no clue
But your soul never let them fetch
Because they never knew the real you

Another Milestone Achieved! 1k Subscribers

Hello friends, I know I have turned up after more than 10 days but I was kind of waiting for this. Exactly a year back, somewhere in May 2017, I remember posting about my first 100 subscribers. And now saw this! It feels so good to have such consistent readers who believe in us.

My entire blogging journey through this one year taught me a lot. Infact my own readers taught me more. I was a complete newbie to the world of writers where I wrote for motivational and inspirational magazines, websites, pages, newsletter, social media platforms but none of them gave me the satisfaction and love which my blog gave me. But yes because I wrote there, my blog turned out to be more of polished and professional. The entire year was full of connecting with people across the globe, making blogger friends, creating new connections. But at the end it was all about learning. After all you remain a student your entire life and you should be.

Today this entire post is for you guys! Yes you my readers! I might have never achieved this milestone if you guys wouldn’t have believed in me and in my write-ups. I really appreciate your precious time on my blog reading my articles and providing me with valuable your feedbacks. I can’t even express how much these mean to me. I’ve tried to interact with you all in the best way possible through my posts and mails.

You know when I started my blog I always used to think what if people don’t like it, what if people judge me, what if I’m not able to reach to those levels as other successful bloggers. But your love for my work has always motivated me to do better. And I’m so grateful to you all!

Along with the people all over the world, I would also like to thank WordPress which proves to be a wonderful platform for amateur writers like me.

You can connect with me on Instagram- Natasha Tungare

Many asked me if they can share my write ups on social media and elsewhere. Yes you all definitely can share them unedited. Just do not forget to link back to my site. And thank you all again for making this happen!:))

Believe me, if you have something to show the world, just go for it! You never know whom you might be inspiring!

Three Day Quote challenge- Day 3

And finally the third and the final day! Again I would thank my friend Anamika for this lovely opportunity. The best thing was she knew that I’m a person who loves following and writing quotes!

So here I go consecutively 3 days explaining my favourite quotes which motivate me always and relate to me.

For me this is not merely a quote but a life sentence! Stephen Hawking, one of the great scientists whom we lost few weeks back had said these wonderful words. Reading this quote you definitely understand it’s meaning but I would like to tell you why you must apply this in your life.

We quit at small failures in our lives but fail to understand that if we keep trying we are bound to succeed. I know failures are too hard to accept but trying harder and getting up with confidence is what it all needs. You know when a person fails in his work/actions a lot many times and still after getting up when he succeeds, that’s the true sense of achievement!

Think about it!

So here I go consecutively 3 days explaining my favourite quotes which motivate me always and relate to me.

Day2:

Whenever I feel low, sad, helpless, I always think of this quote and I get a sense of relief. In 2 of my posts, Gratitude to God and Lord’s Abode I had mentioned how grateful I’m to Almighty for everything! When I know that things aren’t in my hand, I just leave it all to him. And you know what, I always get the correct solution and the perfect decision. I definitely feel that most of you can very well relate to this. I truly wish that may Almighty bless everyone of us.

Three Day Quote challenge- Day 1

Hey there fellas! I’m so glad and excited to tell you all that I got nominated for the Three Day Quote challenge. I thank Anamika to find me worth for this challenge. The best thing I like about her is the way she interacts with her audience. She has always been a consistent reader. Her writeups are full of depth and ofcourse something we can learn from. The genuineness in her every expression while writing makes her a successful blogger.

So here I go consecutively 3 days explaining my favourite quotes which motivate me always and relate to me.

Being an introvert or maybe slightly extrovert I always cherish being alone. Infact that’s when I spend more time with myself. Socialization is great but the time spent with yourself helps you find a lot many unanswered questions in your mind and solutions for them. Very often people ask me why I like to be alone. This is the reason 🙂

I’ll be coming up with another quote tomorrow. The rules of this Three day quote challege are:-

♥ Thank the person who nominated you.

Post a quote for 3 days, and explain why it appeals to you.

Nominate bloggers each day!

So, my nominees are:

2) Vishal Bheeru

3) My expression of thoughts

Thank you Anamika again for this!

A Tinge of Haikus #2 -By my guests!

Hey there fellas! And this my final guest post of the “Poetry Month”. These are the beautiful Haikus written by my guest writers. Thank you so much for making my post more wonderful by your submissions. You guys are truly amazing writers.

Lovely yet lonely
Stood the Rose in garden
Thorn being companion

Did I just wake up
From dream so bad that numbed me
Forever to freeze in time

-Anamika

Haikus I read
Images painted in my head
With words said

-Anonymous

Heart is bud
Brain being a beautiful flower
What you choose?

-Riyansh Sharma

Walking in moonlight
How many human minds see
And share these heavens

-SoundFlyer

You inspiring soul,
Spreading warmth of your words,
Within and around

-Pooja Nair

“Small, short bursts of prose?”
Yes, delightfully succinct.
Nods. “Clearly brilliant”

Feeling through your eyes.
Chasing the inspiration.
Writing it through mine

-Susi Bocks

Nature is a best lover
Love is same for all world over
we are fighting over caste

-Yashashree Agashe

Summon the world
Boasting in their own might
Showing your shine

Thou possess spark within self
Know thy powers and show the world
Pen can be strength symbol
