Journey Of Life

We probably all know Vincent Van Gogh. The famous artist?!
Okay if some of you are still hazy about who’s Van Gogh just google just to have an idea about his work.

As we’re on the same page now, just a suggestion for all who travels: please just don’t take pictures, or bluntly hear what’s the guide’s blabbering cuz it can get really annoying and piss you off. So if you commit to visit, even just to take pictures please roam around & know the place from your point of view. I bet you’ll find stories that’ll interest you even if you hated history classes still those isles while walking through will amuse you.

So Van Gogh was a guy who was extremely gifted. Though people didn’t know or care about him throughout his whole lifetime. But he didn’t care, he walked in his own way & followed his calling. He left his dad’s family business, only his brother’s support was by his side. He was living a very sad life, literally. But found happiness in his work & never stopped following his dream through portraying nature & life. Though ultimately life got him bad, he surrendered after a betrayal from a friend whom he thought was dear.

But little did he know just after he surrendered to himself, his beloved brother on the other hand wouldn’t be able to take the pain?
He died naturally, couldn’t take the shock of his brother’s passing, leaving a young bride & a child.
His sister-in-law found tons of letters both brothers exchanged. She wanted to honor both. So she started displaying Van Gogh’s paintings into various exhibitions.

Gradually it became very popular over the years, she passed away but her offspring held on to uncle’s legacy and flourished it more.

Nowadays, if you visit Van Gogh Museums you’ll see it all. The love, the dedication, the tragedy, the letters etc all together will portray a story of life & choices.

So fact is no matter what, any sort of fulfillment, goals will come along, even if it seems there’s no way still just tag along with this life.
Because even if you think you don’t matter, you actually matter.
Even if you think you’ve seen it all or figured all out, still have an open mind that there’s so much more to explore.
If not today, someday will be your day just remain honest, kind, helpful & cautious.
You’ll give kudos to yourself that you’ve survived this journey of life.

Gratitude might…

Life is mysterious.

Or probably growing up, updates the system and develops some weird(in a good way) qualities.

Now days, bad news or troubled times don’t make the tears to fall down from the cheeks. Mostly standing still, hearing or processing, searching for probable solution or how to cope with the day roams around through the mind; as no one has control over abrupt catastrophes!

Throughout life it is very important realizing that we’ll have to lower all kinds of expectations from another human being. Because higher expectations only will hurt in the end.

Also one more thing, now days, kindness touches me the most. Random act of kindness coming from random people, when somebody does something good for another without expecting anything in return. Sometimes just seeing someone doing random good acts clear the ugliness of the heart and sometimes that gratitude might make the eyes go all teary…

Glass Crystals

Beautiful colored glass crystals collected from random aquarium stores…Relaxes the mind,

Soothing colors calm heart palpitation,

When feeling like going out but chores won’t let that to happen, or the cravings to travel somewhere close to the sea, escaping chaos…

Bottling up feelings won’t give any peace, so finding peace and creating little moments of happiness around whatever is close, seeing more positive things than what normal eyes usually would…

Will gradually enhance energy, to look in the bright side and will work as self motivation whenever the sky seems grey.
