If My Life Was A Soundtrack

About me, life, write every day, Writing prompts

if my life was a soundtrack

If my life was a soundtrack

It would start with a slow beat of a piano

That matches my first giggle as a baby

It would play with the tune of my laughter

That brings on tears of joy and sometimes sorrow

If my life was a soundtrack

It would resemble “What doesn’t kill you make you stronger

With my anxiety and depression

It would play loud “Because of You

With all my mistakes and misery

If my life was a soundtrack

I will aim for “Breaking the habit

To breakdown my fear and heal the wound

I will dance to “Halo

To confess my love and embrace the truth

If my life was a soundtrack

I will play “It’s my life

Because I ain’t gonna live forever

I will keep singing:

Paate hum hai zindagi ek baar (We only get one chance to live)

Kyun na kare khul ke hum isko pyar ( Then why shouldn’t we love it)

 Jaane kiska hai hum mein intezar (Who knows for whom are we waiting)

Ke zindagi yehi hai aur yahin” (As this is life, and here is life)

Take Me Away

About me, Fighting Infertility, life, writing challenge

happy girl looking

Take me away, to the place where dreams come true

Take me away, to the place where love dwells in each heart

Take me away, to the place where life is not taken for granted

Take me away, to the place where jealousy doesn’t drink happiness

Take me away, to the place where ego doesn’t eat innocence

Take me away, to the place where pervert doesn’t lay its dirty hands

Take me away, to the place where hatred doesn’t kill the love

Take me away, to the place where hate doesn’t burn in the name of love

Take me away, to the place where music ignites love and respect

Take me away, to the place where life is lived to its fullest.

5 Quotes that inspire me

I am a big crazy fan of quotes. I have pasted them on my refrigerator, hang them in my living room, they are on my mobile wallpaper. So that every time I come across them, they rejuvenate me.

Each day of my life I work hard to think ‘rationally’ which is indeed difficult but not impossible. Life beats me down, lifts me up and sometimes crashes me hard. These quotes help me in those difficult times.

Inspirational Quotes can be compared to meditation. They help you in keeping calm, they have the power to alter your thoughts.

Quotes make you feel happy, they encourage you, they uplift the mood.

Read at least 2-3 inspirational quotes every day. Do not consider as a task so as to strike off from ‘to-do list’.

Take a break from the “routine” and read quotes for making you feel happy. Here are my 5 favorite quotes by the legends like Elvis Presley, Martin Luther King Jr., Dr.Seuss, Henry David Thoreau.

10 Things I can’t Live Without

About me, life, write every day

In addition to air, food, water and shelter here are my 10 things I can’t live without. Moreover few are my ‘wants’ rather than need.

 10 Things I can’t Live Without

1. H

It is indeed surprising he is on top of my 10 things I can’t live without even though he is not a ‘thing’ (Considering we fight A LOT. lol). What’s more astonishing is its 5 years of living with him! I like to annoy him with pings if he ignores me or mad at me (Cruel, I know ;). This post will be not be enough to explain our relationship, so I will stop right now. 

2. Debit Card

Yes, Yup, Absolutely, Debit Card (s)!It has lessened the burden to carry (lots of) cash all the time.  Whether it is ordering online or buying offline, it is a big saver.

3. YouTube

A huge platform for many hidden talents out there. I love, love, love to watch YouTube videos (never the sleazy ones). It has almost cut down my TV time. Certain YouTubers are truly inspirational. They have inspired me and made me concentrate on healthy and organized lifestyle. I watch them mostly when I cook or clean up my home and my time is worth spend.

I absolutely adore videos by Love Meg, her DIYs and organizational tips are amazing and worth trying out. She has made me more organized and her cleaning routine inspired me every time.

And what can I say about britneyandbaby! I love her family. I have almost seen all of her videos and I await for her uploads.

4. Pinterest 

Really? Yes, you too should miss out in the wonderland of Pinterest. There is mammoth of information over here. Right from home to office, DIYs, blogging, vlogging, maternity, babies, kids, business, I can’t even name all of the info present on Pinterest here.

I found it useful in my day-to-day life. I came across many handy DIYs, tips and tricks. Check it out for sure.

 

5. Sanitary Napkins

Why not to include these in my 10 things I can’t live without list? Not only me, every menstruating female can’t live without it.

Tip: Always, I mean ALWAYS keep one in your handbag. Who would know when it might come to rescue even if the date isn’t near!

10 things I can't live without, I can't live without list

6. Gaana / Saavn 

This is the subtle way of saying ‘music’ (which is cliched, I know). Both of these Apps keeps me accompanied while I do my household chores. I cannot pick any one as my favorites because they both have some amazing playlist which are unique.

7. Pen

In this world of iphones and android, I still can’t live without a pen. I am a bit old school when it comes to writing down anything or making a list. I love collecting different pens but due to space crunch I have to limit myself. I like regular pens, markers, highlighters are my favorite.

My academic books were filled with underlined sentences, small notes or important points with pencil / colorful pen or highlighter. They indeed helped me memorizing (and not just coloring if you are thinking I was ruining the book :P)

8. To-do list

Of course, if I can’t live without a pen then how can I without my to-do list? This
habit I inculcated by watching YouTube, making my life a bit more organized. Isn’t it satisfying to strike out each point from the to-do list? I feel more relaxed when I accomplish what I ought to-do.

This habit has made me crazy about sticky notes and fridge magnets wherein both are useful when jotting down the list.

9. Quotes

Hands down, my infatuation with quotes will never end. May it be high or low in life, quotes always inspire me. Every room in my home has one of my many favorite quotes.

Quotes are like a tiny ray of hope which always pulls me up to realize, “Life goes on…” Try reading quotes more often they have the power to modify our behavior and thoughts.

10. Harry Potter

Yet another way to say that books are my life. They are my oxygen, they keep me alive. They are my companion when I am alone, they are my best friends when I am lonely.

Harry Potter books are the reason I fell in love with reading all over again. They hold a cherished space in my memories. I do hope someday I shall re-read them with my kid.

So, here where my 10 things I can’t live without. I am sure there would be all different things which one could list down, what are yours? I would love to read them. Do share few even if they are crazy ones like mine 😀
