Today feels like some kind of mid week crisis its just a Thursday , another day to go and there comes the weekend.I lay all noon cushioned in my bed watching the animated movie Rio with my 4yr old son. he was so lively and every minute he kept saying Mon I want a Rio I wanna fly like him: which is such a paradox to the movie .The protagonist of the movie the bird Blue is feeling all blue because he is out of his cushioned and safe environment and not feeling in sync with nature Being such a lively bird of his kind he has never dared to fly.Its only when he tries to rescue his female friend he realizes that flying is so serene and so much fun.It took him time though to reaffirm that dream but yes he loves it.
That thought caught me deep and I felt we all are in a way like the bird Blue in the movie Rio. When any of our comfort factors fail to exist we sulk or go deep in a shell. It is so important as parents of today to not just nurture and love but also allow our kids to be true fliers . Let them fly and make their mistakes or maybe at least try so that when they find their true missions in life they feel like true Rio`s who fly high and touch the sky use their full potential and realize their self worth. Its only when we realize our self worth we are less judgmental on others and ready to face the challenges that life unfolds..
have you my readers ever felt like a true Rio and liberated yourself from any fear to fulfill your dreams?
It would be nice to hear of any thing from the real world as real is better than reel.
My kind of Rain
O want wonderful wonderful day! heaven came down and filled me with his love. my sins are washed away…. here i am back with a break of a day! actually its being pouring from morning and this hymn is playing in my mind like a radio with beautiful symphony again and again as I sit engrossed in thoughts staring out of my window pane. Staying most of my life in Mumbai rains was always a pain for adults who travel for work because they had to go through manholes that are left unattended and play the game of life and death for them unlike school kids who enjoy wearing gumboots and play splash play with their friends on their way home from school. Never really experienced rain so clean and serene as I experience it here in Bangalore. I put my hand to actually feel the rain my son loves it too so its another splash splash play for him
looking up to the sky I thank the almighty for being so kind and sending this rain when its needed the most. Its a metaphor for life unless we truly need something God fails to give it to us . It could be anything a job , a home, love of your life, serenity, and the list is endless. Here to be precise its the weather as it was too hot and this heat was turning all of us like angry monsters waiting to exhale. My neighborhood had some workers who were running with their kids to find a place for shelter. My heart ached to see them so homeless in the true sense. lovers could be seen walking across the by lanes to get coy as the weather was playing their favorite tune and making them dance to its tunes.Truly a catch 22 situation for them .It rained and with the loud thunder and lightning was scary too, but definitely reminded me of my good old granny who said whenever there was a heavy shower of rains as the one today God`s must be happy or a sure wedding happening in heaven. I somehow felt like believing those innocent stories seeing the lovely couple in love wished they were married for life.Water is a true face wash and cleanser that cleans you thoroughly of all your reservations, Feels like rejuvenation. power packed to start living for a new day . Open my arms and want to tell God ” Bring it on cos I know you gonna help me sail through in your special boat.”
I just happened to meet a young lady who says she is not finding the right match to get hitched so she believes in being single and that single status to your profile adds a cool instinct . I asked to myself Is there a right match for that matter? It was as though I was teaching my son in one of his puzzle exercises to match the right shadowed image of the perfect animal. Could we think of that when we think of a similar situation in relationships.each one is unique is his/her own way and one has to learn to respect that. The entire humanity has always deemed of having all perfect things in life our personality, ambitions, attitude and finally the perfect man!!!
Any or all kinds of talks and words of wisdom on relationships and adjustments to be made. the pros and cons of being in to celibacy lifelong were all in vain. Actually I got a feeling its not about finding the right match but having the preparedness to get in to any relationship that leads us to further pushing us to the next level of the relationship.Being in to a marital relationship of seven years , I have had my shares of ups and downfalls but there is always a ray of silver lining in every problem or situation which keeps us smiling away through all our blue weathers as an when they arrive.
Its the comfort cushions that we all are sitting through all our lives and expecting things to happen to us that makes us so rigid and we fall prey to assumptions on life. so just get up and be receptive and experience change so that you know you at least gave it a try to any relationship to work its wonders on your life. If it works bingo! but you can be sure you are not left with a cloud of dismay or a blame game to play over your head that leaves you with unfulfilled dreams and desires. So live on and live free!!
