What will one do! #SoulfulSunday

What will one do when one is filled with so many ideas but gets into a mind-paralysis the moment she thinks about executing those ideas?

What will one do when the information around her finds her mind to be the perfect place of residence and she too thinks that it is nice that all this information is finding her but unable to do anything with this information?

What will one do when the mind goes into a constant nagging mode that you are not doing enough and she believes her mind is right?

What will one do to get the mind to change its perspective from I’m not enough to I’m enough?

What will one do to focus on the bright side when all one sees is darkness coming from every corner?

What will one do when one loses hope a million times a day?

What will one do when one feels that she is complaining too much and forgetting to count her blessings?

What will one do when counting blessings isn’t filling her mind with gratitude and she feels terrible about that?

What will one do when so many questions swallow her without a break?

What will one do to reset the mind? 

What will one do? 

The questions are innumerable. Answering them isn’t in my power at the moment. So here I’m unloading my mind’s burden in the hope that I’m making space for the answers to find my mind.

Do you happen to have answers to these questions? If so please do share. 

Wish you all a blessed week! 

Written for #SoulfulSunday, an exercise to nourish our creative side, formulated by Esha and supported by ShilpaAnamika, and yours truly.

  1. I think we all go through these phases in life, Vinitha. Sometimes, at mid-life, sometimes, earlier on. You’re more evolved so you are encountering these existential questions now. Sometimes, the Universe is testing the waters so we are put in tight situations which test our resilience and patience and perseverance to the limits. If you look within, you will find the answers, Vinitha. Here’s the thing, we all must find the answers we are seeking, from within ourselves and I can tell you, in my life, meditation really helped me find those. But, it takes time.

    Try to take a few minutes to meditate every day. Expect nothing magical to appear n the beginning, but gradually you will. Thought-dumping the negative thoughts will clear the mental clutter., so journalling will definitely help.

    As you focus inwards, over a period of time, you will see the things that fill your being with joy and happiness. Maybe, its not one big thing…maybe, it’s a combination of all the small things in life that will bring you the sense of happiness and contentment.

    Today, all I want to tell you, is that we are all sailing in this boat and the scenery and the chatter you’re seeing is the same as we all are experiencing, every day.

    Have no doubts, the answers are bound to come to you—take my guarantee for that. Only thing is, it will take some time. Beyond this confusion, there is light and hope and happiness, my dear friend. Trust me. The Universe will show it to you.

    Plenty of hugs and positivity coming your way, today. Take care, Vinitha.

    P.S. Sorry for the blogpost-like comment. Brevity isn't my thing always. 🙂

    1. I love this blog post like comment, Esha. No apologies for being a good friend. ?
      I know this is a phase. Dark clouds are obscuring my vision. But things will change. I will find the answers. I believe in the Universe and its love for me. I was always taken care of even when there was no trace of hope. So this phase is not scary, but just a phase to ask questions, maybe journal about it in the coming days.
      Thank you for being always kind, Esha. ?

  3. Absolutely true. It often plagues and irks me when meditation can come handy. But, even then, I am so irregular with things and unable to push myself be it writing or otherwise. Perhaps, sitting one day a week and just doing nothing may help. I do that on Sundays, normally! Sending you light, Vinitha!

  4. A BIG Yes! to everything Esha said in her comment. 🙂
    The answers will come to you when you are ready, Vini. And the Universe will decide when you are ready for those answers. Until then, take just one moment at a time.

    1. Yes, one day at a time! Answers will find me now that I am ready with the questions. ? I believe in the Universe and its love fore me. ❤ Thanks dear!

  5. It is almost a week now from the day you wrote this post. How is the situation now? Are those questions still up their in your head troubling you? You are a wise one, Vinitha. You have your answers even when they seem to elude you at the moment. I think somedays we just have to accept as question days. Then we have to follow our set processes (although I will have to admit our set processes do need tweaking from time to time) on the lines of what Esha has suggested – meditation, journaling, thought dumping and waiting. In the meantime, I would like to suggest pull out the colouring book and splash some colours into it. The darkness needs a myriad of colours to get dispelled, trust me.
    This reminds me of the calligraphy kit you once bought for yourself.
