Soulful Sunday

What Stops You? #SoulfulSunday

I am a person with many aspirations. I want to be a writer. I want to restart my career in software development. I want to do many more things before the final adieu.

There was a time I used to feel sad that I wasn’t working. After a couple of attempts, I went on to blame the circumstance. But as time progressed I saw myself doing other things that were not circumstantial. The metaphorical lemonade keeps filling my glass and I became familiar with a sort of content.

I have a long way to go, both career-wise and writing-wise. I could pity myself, but to be honest, I’m past that. I am not afraid now. Even if nothing works out I will find something for myself.

I don’t know how I know that and why I am talking about this here, but I know that. Maybe, because I am not going to stop looking, stop learning, stop trying until I do. There is a lot that can be improved and that gives an excitement than getting everything perfectly right on the first try!

I feel like not everything has to be figured out, you ow. This journey is interesting as we try and decipher the code. It might look it is getting harder as we try to decode, but we are not at the liberty to know right now.

Right now, just enjoy the journey.

I am not letting the journey stop me from where I want to go. What about you?

Written for #SoulfulSunday, an exercise to nourish our creative side, by listening to a 10 minute guided meditation followed by 10 minutes of writing, formulated by Esha and supported by Shilpa and yours truly on Sunday at 7 pm IST.

You are welcome to join this meditative writing session!

  1. Oh yes, of course. I believe that even the smallest things we do , always leads to something good. We can never know what will happen to us, but we try and do things that please us and we also fulfil our duties. In the end, everything works out for the best. I have recently started on “Art”, my feed looks like that of a small child. But that is fine. It gives me pleasure and maybe down the line I will improve on it. Maybe not. Either way, its a lesson learnt. Good Luck dear. You will be fine.

  2. I think it’s important to make peace with where we are right now. That helps us to e more open and trusting of the process and our journey, rather than when we try and control everything and stress about all that isn’t going right – that just prevents us from seeing what is actually working.

  3. All of us are on our own unique journies looking for one thing or the other. Dreams and goals are good,. They keep us moving. I agree with Corinne and Shinjini, most importantly, we must make peace with the present, where we are right now.

  4. I love that attitude in you that doesn’t want to stop dreaming of all that you wish to do and be! Your journey will certainly lead you to your goals… just a matter of time, when you can see it all come together! Keep focusing on the little goals which will lead you on to where you want to be, in future.

  5. It is so refreshing to read one honest ‘straight out of the heart’ post after the longest time. I am so fortunate to be surrounded by such warm souls like you. I am sure, you have a looooooong journey ahead. All the best dear.
