=) #Theory 005

Has someone let you down?
Something you didn’t want has come upon?
In some way you feel you don’t belong?

Some rules, that don’t seem to fit you,
Or some how the whole world’s against you,
Or something just doesn’t feel right?

Stop
Don’t cry
Just come on out
Come outside your shell and smile
Smile like you mean it
Smile like the world can’t bring you down
Smile like hapiness is something you’ve found

Because there’s a perfectly good reason
Of why you should do exactly that
No man, no woman in no time, no season
Is going to set things right
No force, no shadow in no space, no hollow
Would you fall, with the inabiltity
To get back and pick yourself up

After all it is eventually the belief
That you follow your own rules
You set yourself against the world
to believe in what you do
And to achieve the highest benchmark

Stop
Don’t shy
Just stand back up
With your head held high
Walk like you are as confident as ever
Feel like you have set everything right
Fly to achieve that goal you’re after

And you might just smile for real this time.

Make an Impression: #Theory 004

People believe that pencil marks fade away with time. Sadly, they underestimate the capabilities of the wood enclosed graphite contraption that a pencil is, able to write for miles. Some others seem to have a notion that pencils are for those who make mistakes. They seem to think that erasing some or all of your mistakes to over-right them with perfected efforts is equivalent to hiding your mistakes, and thus not being true to yourself.

My simple thought put on paper with this pencil (had written this quite a long time ago with my lead weapon), is that it doesn’t matter if you or anything you do fades away. Ultimately it would become ‘something that has faded away’, which would probably only intensify its significance. The little rubber at the end of your pencil is an option to undo your mistake. As much as committing mistakes is highly inevitable, identifying and then rectifying them is just as much essential to arrive at the best version of yourself.

After you’ve done your part of toiling, tripping, trudging and finally truly travelling towards your target of perfection, you’re left with a feeling of such seamless satisfaction that nothing in the world could possibly bring you down.

So go ahead, and debunk the ignorant and highly superficial myth that pencils are for people who make mistakes. Your efforts ultimately leave impressions that last forever. These impressions count the most, because impressions made by a thriving perfectionist are hard to forget, let alone the idea of them fading away!

Mistakes leave impressions too. Only if you look close enough, will you see them. But after all, what are faint erased marks next to all your thought-out aspirations and achievements written in dark, bold, and courageous writing?

Time’s Your Witch: #Theory 003

Five Minute Rant Okay, so I’m not great at timing

So here’s the thing. When you think you can get a certain task done within a mental deadline,  it isn’t the easiest task to achieve it. Most times it’s probably because you overestimate your capabilities and set unreasonable goals. Otherwise, it’s because of you getting hooked to watching an episode or two of your favourite TV show- which accidentally turns into a season or two.

*hint hint*

*hint hint*

On an online-binge-watching-youtube-videos-spree, I once heard Oprah say that we all like to believe that we’ve been given this life for a purpose. Most of us live our entire lives in the pursuit of finding this specific purpose that gives life to life. Some die finding it, while some die to find it. Either metaphorically or literally, we’re all under certain pressures to complete a number of tasks to make the course of our life worthwhile. Time, as a lot of us know is an extremely non-cooperative factor, nay a witch. You might think of ‘witch’ as a euphemism for an interchangeably impulsive word which might do justice to the horrible toll that time takes on us, but these pieces of digital text want you to think otherwise. Witches have all kinds of spells up their sleeves. Show them your best of abilities, and they will have just the right spell to defeat you in every way possible. They’re extremely clever and possess the intellectual disposition of wizardry and witchcraft, that outdoes the human brain any odd day. But, they’re also unreal. (FYI I’m all in for team HP, and am also in the process of becoming a potterhead)

For real, witches are a figment on imagination, and so is time. Yes, the world is ageing with every second that ticks on the clock, but isn’t it we who have given numbers to time, and restrictions to time periods? It’s the order of society to go to sleep at night and wake up at the break of dawn. It’s the order of society for a year to get over after the sun rises for the 365th time in a row. Sure, everything comes to an end for everyone that there is, but should time really be a hindrance in doing all that you do?

Punctuality is one thing, but productivity is another. Time restrictions usually mess with the flow of your thoughts and their interpretation. In the hustle bustle of today, the only legitimate advice to give anyone would be to start early and to take your time. Since the rest of the world follows the ticking hands of a mechanical device, play along while you make time yours.

Time’s your witch. (euphemism intended) You don’t have to follow the clock. Rather, make your own rules.

Classic Calvin.

This just turned into an unintentional life theory. Huh. Well, anyway, do check out #theory001 and #theory002 if you’re up for some more cheesy, philosophical yet real and insightful stuff. =)

Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That: Theory #002

For those of you who don’t know, the #theory is an indication for ‘let’s have some real talk and pick you up from the pit of discouragement even before you fall into it’. Before anyone says life advice is for pansies, these posts are a humble effort to keep it real. Do have a look at #theory001 in case you haven’t!

Sometimes in life, the overwhelming number of things we set to do often leaves us in a dilemma of whether we’re doing it right. For that reason and to make things easier, let’s go over the things we absolutely shouldn’t do and spare no time for any such redundant complexities in this beautiful dance of life.
Let’s go over what ain’t nobody got time for.

An Inferiority Complex

Inferiority complexes are the worst hindrances you could come across on your journey to success/redemption. In the simplest words, it’s when you think you’re not as great as your peers and that actually matters to what you, as an individual, are doing.
If not encouraged to do better by looking at the performance of others, their success should have no effect on your self belief whatsoever.

Definition: Something that makes you think you’re lesser than others in a way that only lessens the chances of lessening your self-doubt and is a lesson in itself of lessening the lone light of limitations that lies in you.
And that’s every reason to try your best to never have an inferiority complex.

Faux Emotions

Faux diamonds and faux fur look and feel great, faux emotions- not so much. Faking what you feel is very simply being in denial with yourelf. Expressing what you don’t genuinely feel is a waste of time for two people, as a result of which there’s usually one more hurt person in the world when the the truth dam breaks open.
Don’t like the way someone treats you? Convey it to them as soon as possible. Don’t feel the same way as someone does about you? Faking it won’t help neither of you in the least. Think you’re settling for what you think isn’t satisfactory? Don’t settle.
Be true to yourself.
Feel freely.

Sulking

Relief: Higly temporary and volatile
Usage: Extremely easy
Effect: Hardly any
The only thing worse than failure is sulking about failure. It’s like blowing into a balloon up to the extent that it explodes and then, to keep blowing air into it ignoring the fact that it is torn now and you look like a lunatic. Nothing ever comes out of complaining and blaming yourself for a misfire. Pick up your wand and Expelliarmus the heck out of the situation.
Stop sulking, start redeeming.

That’s pretty much it from the ‘I’m still trying to figure out life and spread the lessons then and there anyway’ department for now.
Do leave any more ‘ain’t nobody got time for that’ if you have any in mind in the comments!

Keep On Keeping On: Theory #001

I come up with a lot of theories pertaining to life. Before you knock on my door to burst my bubble, I’ll let you know that I am aware I’m no philosopher. But I am human, and every human, living or trying to live has his/her own notion of how they do what they do & how the world reacts and responds. This is my take on the same.
A lot of times in my relatively short, yet growing life, I’ve felt lost. After a lot of time of being unaware of where to go, I trudge and finally strut along further because the only way out from my troubles I see is to go on. By going further, whether or not in the right direction, (if there is one! another unanswered question) we would be spanning the long journey ahead of us. Laying camp at a spot, not willing to move due to being directionless is pretty pointless. You’ll find countless passers-by with enormous information, if not wise, then a bit different from yours. Maybe that’ll help set you back on track. Otherwise you could believe and trust your instincts. If there’s even a little part of you that says I can get up to go for the rest of my life, then you should let it take control. It might not be smooth sailing immediately, but it would be sailing. That in itself is tremendous progress.
You’ve got keep on going forward.
You’ve got to keep on going.
You’ve got to think forward.
You have got to keep on keeping on.

Life is very similar to a mystery story. You may be leading yourself down a path, oblivious of your surroundings or just be seeing a fraction of it otherwise. Some things you might be certain and some you might not. But some day down the road, it’ll hit you. You’ll realise how clearly, yet cleverly obvious it was in a baffling manner. However, you’ll realise that it wouldn’t have been as much fun as it was if you knew then. If not fun, it would’ve been way different in the least- favourable, or not.
After all, what’s a good mystery tale when you know where the traps are and who the culprit is?
