Happiness and Unhappiness


“People want pretty much the same things: They wanted to be happy. Most young people seemed to think that those things lay somewhere in the future, while most older people believed they lay in the past.”
-Nicholas Sparks


“Unhappiness can be like a virus spreading from one person, to the next person, to the next one and so on. When someone is mean or rude to you, do not let their unhappiness infect your own life. If you are the unhappy one, please quarantine yourself so you do not infect others!”
-Jennifer O’Neill


The inspiration for this piece came from a talk with an individual who used to get up and convince himself that he is going to do his best and he used to have a plan for the day. But, he soon realized that he was not living the life but life was living him and he was just planning ways to have the clock just tick along from one sunrise to another. His inspiration to get something done was only for those couple moments in the morning, just enough to get him through the day. Then eventually, he was able to find exactly what he liked and now he does not have to force himself to like the sunrise but he just enjoys it and look forward for the day. If you have not exactly found your passion, please keep looking and you will come across it. Continue reading

Freedom of Thoughts


I shut my mouth and my politeness is taken for granted;
I start speaking and words start to plot against me.
Maybe I should have just let it wonder inside my head.

Judgements come waltzing out from all directions,
Blowing away part of me fraction by fraction.
I shut my mouth and my politeness is taken for granted.

A mere opinion was all I wanted to put forth,
A sight of acceptance and not of rejection is all I was begging for.
Maybe I should have just let it wonder inside my head.

Fire topples from the mouth of everyone, disguised as words;
Burning up the last bit of confidence I had.
I shut my mouth and my politeness is taken for granted.

I thought my words would gain acceptance as time passes,
Never did that time came and leaving me to wonder that,
Maybe I should have just let it stay inside my head.

Maybe that’s the reason I took up writing,
Because my thoughts talk and pages listen.
I open my mouth and opinion is respected,
So maybe it does not have to be captivated inside my head.

Is it a comparison or a destruction?


Do not let the comparison take away who you really are. You do not know the situations that someone went through to get to the place they are at. Find out who you really are and focus on achieving what you really want and define the definition of rich, happy for yourself based on who you are and not by looking at what others have. I am not saying competition is bad but just use it wisely. Listen to everyone advice because you cannot stop anyone from speaking but do what is best for yourself. Continue reading
