Moon River

9919

Moon river, wider than a mile
I’m crossin’ you in style some day
Old dream maker, you heartbreaker
Wherever you’re goin’, I’m goin’ your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waitin’ ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, Moon River, and me

How to be single 

The time we have to be single is really the time we gotta get good at being alone. But how good at being alone do we really wanna be? Isn’t there a danger that you get so good at being single and so set in your ways that you will miss out on a chance to be with somebody great?

Some people take baby steps to settle down. Some people refuse to settle at all. Sometimes it’s not statistics, it’s just chemistry. Sometimes just because it is over, doesn’t mean love ends.

The thing about being single is “you should cherish it.” Because in a week or a lifetime of being alone, you may only get one moment. One moment when you are not tied up with a relationship with anyone; A parent, a pet, a sibling, or a friend. One moment when you stand on your own, really truly single and….then it’s gone.

When faith is shaken

image

I faced an emotional upheaval today after learning that someone very close to me, has been deeply hurt, emotionally and physically. Like any human even we(our family) faced hardships, some of which still need to be sorted out. I have read this post somewhere few years back “why do bad things happen to good people?” Ethically how can you describe yourself as a good person anyway? It’s a difficult question isn’t it? But forget me, my parents have done nothing wrong to anyone but give love, happiness and help but we are always being tested for our good. The more we endure the more we are being hurt or given more challenges. And there is a tolerance level for everything, I lost it today. I was mad and started crying. The last time I felt this kind of pain was when I lost my grand pa. Then I remembered Stephen hawking, one of the most intelligent person on the planet right now, has been cursed with AML. If he or his family gave up on him, he wouldn’t have discovered Hawking radiation or developed theories about time. Also John Nash, he dint let his illness get in the way of his noble peace prize. I could name a lot of artists, scientists etc who dint let their illness get in the way of their success. Then I realised I’m not the kinda person who loses faith or gives up easily.

I wish I could go back and try to do something to correct this but whatever happened isn’t my fault or anyone’s fault. It’s fate! Something that you gotta step up and deal with! At times like these your loved ones need your support, love and most importantly you need to be strong in order to fight these demons. If anyone is facing a bad situation today, remember faith is power, It can move a mountain. There is nothing that you cannot face and yes eventually it will all be good. 🙂

Happy World Oceans Day 🌊

  Here is my tribute to my happiest place on the earth, the ocean. For I have been inside 3 oceans and 2 more to explore, to fathom the beauty of the underwater 🐋🐟🐠🐡🐚. 

My message to humanity “let’s keep our oceans/seas clean so our future generations can experience what we have today.” 😊

Being grateful :)

tiny-green-buddha
The other day I was talking to an old man who was suicidal. He attempted suicide twice in the past. He asked me what kind of drug would help him succeed this time? I was alarmed. He is an 80-year-old rich man who was well retired with no family problems what-so-ever. How do I know? I live next door to them. I have known this family for a while. I asked him – “It is recently scorning 45 degrees hot in Hyderabad. I saw people begging in this God damn heat on the street with no foot wear or home to live. I felt so bad for them. Now tell me grandpa? You are in good health, have a family who loves you and takes care of you, have a roof on your head, have food to eat, have no personal problems. what more you need?” He kept quiet. May be he is lonely, may be had some issues that he cannot share, may be he is depressed. I asked the family to take him for a consult just in case.

As a HSP I am very prone to melancholy so I try to keep myself optimistic while in hindrance. I think as humans we often take things for granted. We never appreciate what we have and always seek for something more. It is nothing wrong to be selfish enough to seek more. It’s just while we do that we need to keep an eye on the present. Appreciate the little things that make us happy on a daily basis. As a single woman, I enjoy my FREEDOM more than anything in the world. I have been living on my own for more than a year which is great being independent. Mostly I love my job. As a doctor, I get to help people which makes me happy. I think GIVING is the most benevolent thing my grandpa has taught me. On the contrary my life is really boring right now. I still need to get married, get settled by doing post graduation, be successful and start a family. I get stressed out whenever people poke and prod me with questions regarding my love and career. But you know what? It will happen when the time is right. There is no way you can force destiny which is why many people end up unhappy with careers or marriages they don’t like or get divorced. I am sure there are other people who are in the same boat as I am. So lets take a moment and be thankful for what we have in our lives. I made a list of mine:

1. GOOD HEALTH : As a doctor, I often see cases that have life long restrictions. Fluid restriction in heart or kidney failure, carb restriction in diabetes, primary or secondary disabilities. I mean can you imagine being in their shoes? I am truly grateful for my health and my senses.

2. FAMILY: I have a very supportive family who stand by my thick and thin.

3. FRIENDS : In this appalling world, its good to find good people who give you their best.

4. FAITH : I am agnostic and I love God. Faith is what keeps me alive & optimistic.

5. LOVE : Whether its self-love or love from your family & friends, it is wonderful.

6. FREEDOM : Freedom of speech, freedom of living alone, freedom of doing whatever the heck you want. Being in a relationship is a change everyone must face, it is definitely a good thing. But can you imagine being single and sexy? You can do anything you want in the world so savor it! Enjoy it while it lasts.

7. NATURE : I think the creator made this beautiful world filled with greeneries, flowers and mountains, sunrises and sunsets, the smell of lavender, the healing power of peppermint. Nature therapy is a blessing.

8. CAREER : Cheers to all of us who love their jobs.

9. KIND STRANGERS : This surprises me often. There are so many people who do good selflessly that we meet on a daily basis. They inspire and humble me.

10. SILENCE & PEACE : This is a must for me as an ambivert. I get to re-energize because of silence. I get to reevaluate my life, I study well in this environment, I pray and meditate. Silence stimulates creativity.

There are other things in the list like facing challenges, I am in a catch 22 situation right now but imagine if I don’t face it how can I appreciate my success? My journeys, my experiences, mistakes, ancestors, science, medicine, home, food, entertainment, music & dance, laughter, talents, pets, technology, culture & diversity. Every beautiful thing in this world that makes me happy, I am eternally thankful. Please do not forget to count your blessings even if they are little. 🙂

I thought of you today!

  
“I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. 

I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. 

I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. 

All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. 

Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part. 

God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart. ❤ ” Miss you grandpa 😞

Home is Haven 🏡

Aviary Photo_130754881504229670

I recently took a short summer vacation to visit my hometown which is near the coast. The last time I visited, was 6 months ago. So I really needed some family bonding time and a personal get away near the ocean. I had the most amazing time as usual. I was able to unwind and travel to new places nearby. For the first time, I dint go alone. My cousins accompanied me for my new ventures. We have been to the light house at the tallest hills in the city, few undiscovered beaches away from the city and for the 3rd time in my life to an estuary.


   I must say estuaries are one the most beautiful places where ocean lovers must visit. We were literally deserted in the area which is kind of nice as I prefer the least populated beaches.


The estuary has provided habitat for many fish nurseries. Part of the bank was besieged by fishermen 👳🏽huts with their splendid canoes. A few of ’em boated down for fishing🎣. The midsummer sunlight dispersed through the estuary made it resplendent, while I basked in it.🌞😎I was able to envision few gliding fishes🐟, lots of seagulls🐦, godwits, eagles and herons. I rode on a canoe 🚣🏼 from the bank to the sea. We also took a closer look by having a long walk by the bay🌊🐚, listening to the waves. I missed diving though. One of the best nature therapies I had in a long time. We did trekking in some parts.


Also visiting the light house at the Dolphin hills was exhilarant. I was born in this city but we have never been to this place, so I guess it was a long overdue. Viewing most of the ocean (Bay of Bengal), the ship harbor, the city, the hills🌄,the trees🌴, the azure sky and the sunset 🌅was eye-popping. I was enthralled by what nature had to offer. Vizag is still recovering after cyclone hudhud.

I visited my kith and kin after a long time. Our natter lasted with joy and laughter. We reminisced our childhood and our lost grandparents. Not to forget, my favorite food mom prepared for me everyday, the petty fights and laughter I shared with my sister 👭& parents👨‍👩‍👧‍👧, watching our favorite television together was a convivial atmosphere. Time has shortened everyday, I dint realize 2 weeks were done in a blink. 😞 Oh! well career calls but these memories are preserved. I’m grateful to God for this vacation. 😇
