Grab your Freewrite, jump on Sprinter, pre-order your Traveler, it's time for Writing Time Fridays! Today's prompt: “Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends” – Maya Angelou

Be your reason to be happy//.
The thing about happiness is,
we all crave for it so much,
that it seems like this thing, which we can't have within us normally.
We talk about it,
like a long lost person,
whom we want to be around all the time,
but can't, because we keep living in the fear of losing them.
We think of those days,
when being with them, felt like being on cloud nine,
or when you got a letter of acceptance from the company you had applied for.
Suddenly, that same job you had applied for doesn't make you feel happy,
and the people you were always with, are too far now.
is a feeling,
that we've attached to people, things, moments.
it feels like this emotion, that is just there.
Hidden in words,
encompassed in the darkness of self hate and sadness.
Don't look for reasons to be happy.
Don't think about it,
like something you can't have.
Don't fear it.
Instead, love yourself so much,
that everything and everyone around you just adds to your happiness.
someone in this world, finds their happiness in you.
So for them, and for yourself,

My kids and I are allergic to chocolate. 😳 Today's new blog post is about why I think it should be the norm to offer non-food treats on Halloween, and how I do it quite easily (and on the cheap.)

There’s this couch in my favorite cafe—the Grande Dame of furniture. It reminds me of pieces my grandma had, pieces that have disappeared since her death, but I miss them now that I’m an adult. Distinguished, luxe, perfectly worn. I can’t see a piece like this and not think of my grandma. Maybe that’s why I love to write here. ❤️✍🏻 #amwriting#inspiration#writerslife
When I’m lost I go to church. That’s not my reason every time but it is today. It’s not always easy to be a Catholic-considering my views. They clash with many traditionally held beliefs. Most of all, I believe in all faiths, as I believe they all lead to the same place—the journey just looks differently for each person. I believe in God. The light that connects us all-humans, animals, trees...that’s Grace. I’m not my best self all of the time—far too much these days. It’s why I pray. To be better. Kinder. Less selfish. I also pray when I’ve asked myself all the hard questions. The truth shines through that way. #shanynoffpage#amwriting#ampraying#writerslife#writersofig#writersofinstagram#RealLife
निंदिया आयी रात अँधेरी चाहत सी मुस्कुराती हुई
मेरे तसव्वुर में तेरी धुंधली एक तस्वीर बनाती हुई
जैसे अनजानी राहों से एक बडा कारवाँ गुजरता है
उसी शहर के बेगाने दिलो का गीत वो गुनगुनाती हुई
मैं ठहरा मुहाजिर शौक में जिंदगी का गुजारा करता हूँ
मुझे देखती है वो सुरमे वाली निगाहें बेवजह शर्माती हुई
मंजर शहर का देखो आजकल बड़ा खुशहाल रहता है
हर सहर जब दौड़ी आती है वो जिंदगी से पर्दा उठाती हुई
जुल्फ़े जब उलझ पड़ती है उसकी झुमके से हर रोज
गुलों को छेड़ने आ जाती है आँधियाँ चमन में लहराती हुई .
Current mood from my talented friend @awomanofwords 🕶🤱🏻all ladies must love themselves unconditionally, I know it’s easier said than done... But we all are capable of such magic, and we deserve all the love, beauty and gratitude just as much as others we pour it into, our universal distractions, our jobs etc.. Don’t forget to take a minute to breathe, and embrace how lucky you are to just be who you are in this big old world💕🦋😽💋🧚♀️🐥 #poetsofinstagram#writersofig#amwriter#wordswithqueens#wordsoftheday#poetry#followher
