Seven Wonders

I am not in a mood for a lengthy blog, as I am also working on some short story.  And aptly, the Daily Prompt needs some crisp ideas. So here I go with my seven words. Before that let me tell you, I feel thankful for the infinite words that we have – they make reading and writing possible 😉

My Seven words that I believe, can take me to infinite wonders..

Breakdown … On dealing with criticism…

I don't want it

I don’t want it

I find it tough to take criticism, especially from dear ones. It takes long time to get over it. We are ready to share our deepest sorrows and of course the happiness with our dear ones but not criticism.

When a person is not meant for us much, we can pay deaf ear to him/ her( – though not immediately) when they criticize. What if the person who knows us very well, who means a lot to us, criticizes? hmmm… Mostly that means there is a correction to be done on our end but they should have chosen a gentle way to make us understand.

The truth is, our dear ones feel they have every right to correct us.  They may completely forget   that they need to be gentle while correcting us.And I wish I could understand this well when it comes to reality.. 🙂

Its sad but true..

Its sad, but true.. ah, who knows may be you can still choose :)

Its sad, but true.. ah, who knows may be you can still choose 🙂

I am in very cheerful mood today. The topic “It’s sad but true..” doesn’t strike a chord with me.

Today, I feel like a happy a soul with no complains. I want to really ask when I am this happy, what is hushing the voices that I am otherwise afraid of. Is it  just the mindset? Is it just because I started my day with a big smile and it’s continuing? Or is it that simple that you can freeze happiness in your smile and if you can smile you can be happy?

It’s sad but true, I have no answer for it. We don’t know what tomorrow has in store for us.

As much as we can, let’s keep smiling 🙂

As I speak to my 14 years self now…

What to say?

What to say?

Heylo Divya…. Just wait for a minute. Hush.. stop yelling … can you just stop jumping as well? Why don’t you do something useful? Hey, how to grab your attention?

I know how…! Let me tell your dad.

“Hey, who are you?”

I ‘m your future.

“Why you want to speak to my father?”

As I know you will listen to him and only to him.

“Uh,ho! Don’t you know that he loves me so much that he will not scold listening to someone else’s words? He asked me to enjoy my life the way I want. By the way, playing is not a sin. In fact I gave some time to my mom to relax at home while m here playing hide and seek.”

I will bother you some other time; I know it won’t work now.

“I ‘m too tired, le me go home… Good Bye friends, see you tomorrow.”

“Mom, m back and not hungry.” I know how to ask you to feed me with some food 😉

Knock, knock. Your future here..

“Why can’t you wait, anyway I will come to you after sometime.”

Just want you to keep me in mind.

“Le me get rid of you soon”

“Daddy, I want to ask you something? When I grow up, can I be a Doc?”

“May be I want you to be engineer, like me” said Dad.

Did I actually heard that from daddy? Okay Dad, I will think about it. I ‘m very sleepy, I will go to bed now. Mom, can you please help me with blanket”

“Yes, ‘M in kitchen I will be there is a min or two.”

So, do you have some time for me now?

“Yes, what do you have in store for me?”

Listen to your father as no one knows you better than him.The only message I have with me.

P.S: Not sure why only these lines from me. But I just find them extremely apt.
