Venture 

We all venture far and wide for the things we can find within. 

Like happiness through emotional stability, ‘some one like home’ and most importantly peace. We find peace in the 2 AM laughter we share with our bestfriends but the truth is that we never really outlive those moments, we tend to still throwback to the moments that make our  hearts giggle like children.

What we need to understand is that sometimes, we have to let go not forget but “let go of the thought that things are the same as they were before”. We meet strangers on the bus and when they help us out and pass our ticket or even just smile at us – we feel a sense of  innocent happiness; we do not however, get hurt if they don’t get on the bus the next day, we live in the moment and cherish the beauty of that temporary happiness – spread it by smiling at another stranger.

Its hard sometimes to forget those who left, to forget those people who you thought were one with your soul; Realise that your soul is independent. People come and go but never let that weaver your vibe; they are like sunsets in that aspect, purple on somedays but somedays red like  flushed cheeks, Orange on somedays but just light blue on others. They’re moody and different you may not like them on all days but there’s nothing you can do, but cherish the days your favourite colour is painted across the sky.

We venture far and wide for the happiness we can find within by learning the art of ‘living in the moment’ and not clinging on to other souls. We all have a little bit of  nomad in us, let that nomad grow into a soul which knows that Nothing lasts forever, keep on moving.

Pillar of Support.

If you are heterosexual and you support LGBT rights, there’s an 85% chance that you’ve had your sexuality questioned.

Its okay if someone genuinely wants to know whether you are straight but most people believe that only those who belong to the LGBT community support them and that if you support gay rights and you clarify that you are in fact straight – your’re lying.

This thought is another narrow aspect that we deal with while discussing gay rights.

There are no  norms or rules that imply only people who are homosexual must support justice pertaining to LGBT, or everyone that supports them and claims to be straight is essentially homosexual.

Say, i support my favorite team in a particular sport; that doesn’t make me a part of their team, i needn’t be a part of them or have anything in common apart from the hope to win in the game. Similarly, straight people can support their gay friends or gay people who they don’t even know without essentially being Gay.

Our sexuality must not be a criterion to stand for justice.

In India especially, there is a social stigma attached to even mentioning people belonging  to the LGBT community, what bothers me is that straight people are brainwashed into thinking that they cannot have friends who are gay or support gay rights merely because they would be mistaken as being gay.

Parents think their daughter/son hanging out with a gay person will influence them in the ‘wrong’ way, honestly i do not understand how many times this has to be said before people actually get it –   It’s not a choice, its not something you can be talked into and NO it is not a disorder.It’s not contagious.

your sexual orientation shouldn’t matter when you support someone’s right to fall in love with a person of whichever gender they prefer. 

So, its okay to openly support Gay rights it doesn’t make you gay (if you’re straight) and after your friend comes out as gay, you are not obligated to ask them if they are attracted to you (if you are of their gender). Don’t make them regret who they are, and don’t make them regret your friendship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beyoutiful.

Its about time we address the ruler of  self image issues for people of all Genders.

Beauty

what is beauty ? ( this is of course not the literary definition, it is a simple ideology)

Beauty is both within and outside, it is based on personality, attitude, actions just as much as you think it is defined by physical appearance.

It is for a fact known that people ( no matter what size, colour) are beautiful. I’am not saying that physical appearance is not to be considered about a person, yes it can be admired but the fact is that everybody’s appearance is beautiful. we need to understand that fat and thin, dark and fair are just descriptions not labels, not bad words, definitely not insults. your’re not too fat, too thin, too tall, too short, too dark, too pale. Fat is not synonymous to unhealthy, thin is not synonymous to malnutrition, dark does not equate to unattractive neither does pale, and you’ll fit in  if you’re tall or short, it doesn’t matter; what matters is that you know that you’re beautiful.

“There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in proportion” – FRANCIS BACON

It doesn’t MATTER if you have braces, acne, freckles, dark spots, blackheads, facial hair ( supposedly unwanted), tan skin, dry skin, oily skin, curly hair, frizzy hair, and many more beautiful features that you think makes you less beautiful; that’s what society wants you to believe , are you really going to let the opinions of shallow minded people alter the way you think about yourself?

Let me put it this way – mountains are beautiful, so is the cloak of snow they adorn. brooks are beautiful, so are lilies in a pond. The ocean is vast and yet stunningly beautiful, it too comes in various shades. The roots of trees are beautiful,  though they aren’t seen most of the time. The sun is beautiful, so is the moon; some people may just have a preference for either one. all this is nature, and all this is varied, all this is beautiful. 

say, if someone where to claim that they thought the sun was not beautiful, that its heat made it less beautiful and that  sunsets are ugly- what would you do? would you pity the sun? or would you simply laugh at their shallow and futile attempts to diminish the value and beauty of nature?

so, that’s exactly what you have to do when people try to diminish your beauty. Now, for people that tell you that you are not in fact beautiful i.e the raisin brains.

The raisin brains lack development in thought and continue to live in denial and with their internet explorer of a mind. These creatures are also innately cowards that are shallow and have not evolved enough to understand beauty yet decide to talk about it.

Next time when you come across a raisin brain that provides you with unnecessary filth, don’t waste your time in trying to explain the concept of beauty, just send it the link to this article – help a raisin brain discover itself, save a life.

//you’re all made of stardust, and if that’s not beautiful then i don’t know what is //

 

 

 

Insomnia

You feel the need to do something but your senses have an agenda of their own; they prefer to stay put, like catatonia.
What is this boredom?
Its unquenchable thirst and hunger of a wild hog must be dealt with before you do something stupid- before you click delete.
A lack of purpose perhaps, a thirst for knowledge, a sudden frenzy for productivity but you don’t know where to go, nothing, no amount of activity will suffice.
It feels like Insomnia.
The insomnia in the middle of the day, only your inner desire to do What satisfies your thirst for knowledge and purpose can cure this general unrest.
The answer is simple:
When it hits you, it is definite               that you will stumble.
Get up and get going – search.
Search for as long as you need, until your thirst is quenched.

IMAGE

We hold images.
Both, Of us and other people.
Interdependent like the stars and darkness, these are shown at times when we have to display our thoughts and actions. You can choose to be a camera and delete what you don’t want; a mirror and be in-sync with reality; or a canvas to re-create fantasy. What makes us different is the images we hold, how we hold them and to what extent they define us.

Some images are temporary , some are permanent.
Perception is key to your description of reality as truth isn’t concrete, happiness is. Your perception, your camera, your canvas, your mirror – the choice lies with you; you can either be happy and spread happiness Or live in the darkness of your own shadow.

Tik tok on the clock.

☕In the middle of a lunch break with friends, it hits you. What’re you going to do with your life? Make every second count, you’ve heard this a million times but you need to know that once you walk out that door, once you pass your final year –  The world’s light will hit you, you can either embrace it or drown in  it. Now, is the time to start your journey and pin down every town in the map of dreams.
