Something close to my heart. Something I wrote a while ago that I wrote for one of the reasons I’m still alive:

The Skies Still Blossom

The skies still blossom,

The soil still showers with caution,

As the world seamlessly grows,

Time as always still flows,

Yet the only reason why they all ever seemed to matter ceases to exist.

The mind can only ponder,

The heart knows now but only to cry and to wonder,

How dreams seem like a distant abyss,

and the future an unknown coincidence,

Yet the only reason why they all ever seemed to matter ceases to exist.
I miss you Papa

The reason why any of this ever seemed to matter.

You were my guiding light,

My eyes search for you up in the stars every single night,

Just when I catch a glimpse of your shimmering

Life pulls me right back into a reality bewildering.

You taught me, you made me, you grew me, you nurtured me and you gave me everything, No matter what happened you never gave up.

You always stood your ground, you always kept moving forward.

I kept on saying and believing: ‘We’re all here to make a dent in the universe, else why even be here?’ but here I am today, and instead life itself made a dent in my universe by taking you away from me. Nothing will ever be the same again. This dent is not one I ever wanted.

You gave me everything, yet life decided to take you, my everything away from me. I would give this all away just to have you back. Just so that you could pat my back one more time. There’s so much I wish I could say to you.

It’s Father’s Day today. I ask myself why every day wasn’t Father’s Day why every day wasn’t Mothers Day why every day I didn’t celebrate the two most important people in my life. I want to tell the best father in the world how much I love you. I want to say sorry for all I’ve done wrong, I want your hand on my head, I want you to be there when I fall, to pick me back up. I want to say thank you for all you gave me and I hope to one day become the man you saw in me but it still doesn’t seem like it would matter because you won’t be here.

I do promise you one thing Papa. You, your blessings, your teachings, your knowledge and your love will remain with me forever and I will not stop, I will not give up, until I have achieved and become the very man you said you saw in me. Please stay by my side like you always have, please be my guiding light.

To the best father in the world. Happy Father’s Day Papa. I love you.

The skies still blossom, the soil still showers with caution, as the world seamlessly grows, time as always still flows but Life, Life was a gift that stopped giving on the 25th of February 2017.

Love, Work, Commitment. Is there a balance? How does one achieve it. 

They say that if you do what you love you’ll never work a day in your life. But what about those of us who haven’t found what we love? Who haven’t found their true calling, who don’t know what they want to do in life…isn’t it that in such cases, work is essentially a peril and a torture we constantly wish to rid from our lives? Something we do just because we have to?

Well friends, it’s very simple…sometimes if you don’t love what you’re doing with your life you need to learn to love it, to value it’s intricacies to treat each day as a new learning curve, and if that still doesn’t work. Then one must have the courage to let go of this peril and set foot on a path to self discovery.

Some pertinent examples are that of current world icons – Mark Zuckerberg he dropped out of Harvard to pursue his dream which we all know today as Facebook, Bill Gates the same, the reason why we have the likes of Microsoft and Apple today, the list goes on…

The fact of the matter is we as humans have the luxury of choice. However there isn’t an app that’s gonna help us make that choice, better yet deliver on it. That part of human development thankfully still remains, inherently, human. (Haha)

So I challenge all my readers out there. If there is something you really want in your life. There is nothing stopping you from achieving it. All you need to do is take the decision to go out there and get it. The rest as my Mentor always says: The Universe will provide.

Return of the Jedi…

‘Haha’, to that title, I assure you, I am no Jedi…becoming a Jedi in the world of literature, motivation and empowerment however, does seem to be an incredibly fascinating notion. First and for most I’d like to apologise for my lapse in blogging, being a student takes it’s toll…together with that I’ve been stringently evaluating the direction this blog is to take and have finally reached a conclusion. 

It all started off as a motivational retreat, ecstasy to those who wish to be motivated and stay strong. That element is bound to stay however together with that…I’m adding a personal touch where I will bring in my own opinions, thoughts, and perspectives, in hope of change. Through this I aim to not only aid those in need of some extra motivation but also be a voice to the voiceless and bring about a change in perception, a change in societal norms and eventually progress for the youth all across the globe. It’s a small blog now, but with your support and your input let’s we can all make a difference, make a change, become a formiddable force in this cyber orientated world. Those who can see my vision with me just by reading this blog. From this moment on it’s all hands on deck. Let’s get this movement started. Let’s make a difference. You can expect a new page out of my book which is life every week. Ladies and Gentlemen this is the start to something great, something bigger than us all and your support in helping me achieving positive change is all I ask. In advance. Thank you. 

After all…

We’re all here to make a dent in the universe, else? Why even be here? – Steven Paul Jobs  

Always remember that within us we hold the power to do all that which we though impossible, within us we hold true, infinite power. Never forget that.

Yours,

Arjun Agarwal.
