The One

I miss you. I haven’t met you yet but I miss you. Sometimes I wonder where can I find you – online? In the local cafe? In shopping mall? Or on a random street? Or through a friend? Possibilities are endless…

I don’t want you to complete me or to fill in my loneliness void. No, I don’t even want you to make me happy…. I have realised I can do all these things by myself. And believe me I am doing all this as good as I can… But sometimes…. I need you. Is it wrong to admit that I need love?

I see those happy couples on insta and when I read their captions I can literally feel their love for each other. That makes me wonder when will I get to love someone like this… When will someone love me like this… Is it wrong to admit that I need love?

Yesterday I was listening to a romantic song. The lyrics felt like you are speaking to me and I’m calling out to you… Sometimes it feels like you are here somewhere.. talking to me through songs and stories.. but why can’t I see you yet?

Love is something that can’t be rushed, they say. But I am done waiting. And you know I’m impatient as hell..

I don’t think you’ll be perfect in every way… But you’ll be right for me and that’s what matters… I am not the type of girl who believes in fairy tales and happy endings… But I know I can have someone whom I can live happily with. Someone who can support my growth and nourish me with love.

Will you meet me soon?


Don’t we all feel like this at times?

Grow together

If we are in a relationship, I don’t expect you to be the same you were when we met. I want you to grow with me. Life throws challenges at us, if we want to do better, we’ve to become better and grow together.

After some years…we may not be the same we are now. But let’s hope, we become a better and happier and more successful couple than we are now.

Rain is not just a word…

“Ooooohhh…. It’s rainingggg!!!”

(。♡‿♡。)

I say this as I am in the terrace and watching rain. Billions of raindrops falling from the sky, thrumming on the roof.

I hear kids playing in the rain and singing the monsoon-special songs.

My heart leaps with joy. I feel a deep sense of calm and relief as I close my eyes, open my arms and feel the downpour.

It feels like everything is covered in a green blanket. I feel a cool breeze around that makes me wonder weather I am in heaven! With so much beauty surrounding me..

I can’t believe it’s here!

The season I waited for the whole year!

I cannot help but scream with joy. Does that sound silly? Or maybe childish? I don’t care.. I don’t care about anything when it rains. I just go all in and enjoy the beauty of nature that surrounds me.

I hear cuckoo chirping, somewhere on a tree.. even he must have been waiting eagerly for rain as I.

As I am stand there getting wet, mom calls in so that I don’t catch cold.

As I enter home I am longing for a cup of hot tea and some snacks.

In a while, me and Mom and busy cooking, as we hear the raindrops and smell the petrichor. Cooking feels different today, I am enjoying every single moment.

Sitting by the window with Mom, Dad and my small sister, drinking tea, eating snacks, chatting, laughing, feels like bliss.

As I get up to clean, I realise I’m never ever going to forget these days, where my family was smiling along with rain.

May I be kind to myself

When I talk to myself,
May I be kind
For I know that the kindness I plant in my heart,
Determines the way I’ll go

May I be kind to myself
When I make a mistake,
When I am hurt,
When things go wrong

May I be kind to myself
And validate my pain
Say “this hurts”
And remind myself
I am not the only one,
Suffering is a part of life

May I be kind to myself,
Place a hand on my heart
And say
“Keep going, brave one
For this too shall pass”

Entrepreneurship

I still remember the time when I first learnt the word ‘entreprenur’. It was in 9th grade, in our economics lecture.

I remember thinking – How awesome these entrepreneurs are… Starting a company, making it successful, is not an easy task. I wonder how they do it…

When I started going to college, I began researching about entrepreneurship.

I came across wonderful people and their inspiring stories. I always loved to study successful people. The best resource I had was YouTube. It’s flooded with entrepreneurship videos. I also learnt a lot from Malcom Gladwell’s book Tipping Point and Outliers.

That’s when I came across people like Gary Vee, Grant Cardone, Dan Lok, Evan Charmichael, Elon Musk, Richard Brandson and many others. And I realised there are more entrepreneurs than famous Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

Entrepreneurship, I learnt, is about serving others in the best possible way. Creating the products that will be helpful to masses and then doing the marketing and getting sales.

That’s something I really like about entrepreneurship. It’s about helping people in the best possible way and being smart to get what you deserve as well.

Entrepreneurs learn many lessons along the way of creating a successful company.

It’s not about becoming a millionaire, it’s about the journey you go through to get there. It’s about the lessons you learn along the way to get there. It’s more about the journey than the destination.

As you see, these entrepreneurs don’t boast about what they have now, but tell you about the journey they went through to create something, to build something.

Entrepreneurs need to learn the value of hard work and patience, dedication and passion, resilience and optimism, dealing with different clients and making sales. All of this is something we’d like to learn and apply in our life as well.

Some people cheat to make their way and not everyone who makes it to the top has put in the hard work. But most of them have and those are the people who are constantly raising the bar high. Setting high standards.

Entrepreneurship is also about executing your ideas in the best possible way. Walt Disney wanted to entertain children and inspire them to create positive changes in the society. He executed it beautifully and became one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the history of the world.

Fact – Mickey Mouse is now worth 178 billion dollars!

Entrepreneurship is about creating something that will be helpful to people, something that will last even after the founder is no more. Not the commonly understood belief that ‘Only money motivates entrepreneurs’ Nope! Even legacy does.

Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.

I deeply admire successful entrepreneurs. There’s so much to learn from them..

Who’s your favorite entrepreneur?

If my phone could talk…

So I was talking to my friend about how much time I spend on my phone and told him I feel kinda bad for it… I mean I know I shouldn’t have too much of screen time but… I also know how much I learn from it, I know how much I create on it, I know how much I enjoy it!

So he just randomly asked me about what would my phone tell me if it could talk?

Hmmm… Interesting question!

I thought and actually I came up with so many things!

He expected a one line answer, I texted him a paragraph!

I would like to share that here –

If my phone could talk, it would say –

Vru,

I like that you always keep me on silent so I don’t need to buzz when someone calls.. but I kinda feel bad for you when you get scolded from your friends for not receiving the call😆

When you start talking with your best friends… You just don’t stop! I have to entertain your boring gossip and uncontrollable laughs for hours! Literally 2 hours or more.. Aren’t you going to meet them tomorrow anyway?😒

You need to charge me more often😒 I mean… Don’t you get tired of telling your friends you have low battery? I mean look at their phones, mostly charged… And here I am.. don’t even get enough food😥

I have to play so many songs for you these days! Can’t you get a music player or something? You even drop me at times while singing and dancing…🙄

My memory is filled with your selfies.. can’t you just enjoy the moment in your memory and gimme break for a minute?

I am overflowing with screenshots.. I mean why the hell do you screenshot so much? Do you even read it after taking screenshot? Never! And then you complain.. why does my memory get so full?!😏

I have at least 5 apps you never ever use… Do you meditate? Nope! Do you track your exercise? Never! Do you ever read from that app? LolDo you use the app that you installed just because your friend told you so?…. Then what are those doing in your phone? Feeding your ego?!

Sometimes you use me to learn about business and psychology from YouTube, and take down notes that you will never read after that day…

You can practically chat for hours at night… Should I tell them the conversations you have??…..


So! This was the fun write-up where I imagined what would happen if my phone could talk…

Actually I’m so glad it can’t talk.. coz I’m pretty sure it would blackmail me if it could talk, as it knows most of my secrets! :p

What would your phone say to you if it could talk?😂

Needs

She needed love

She saw glimpses of it in him

She gave him all she got

He hurt her and left

She spent the rest of her life thinking there’s something wrong with her

How could you blame it, my child?

Your need of love,

Your need of belonging

Your need of emotional connection?

Do you really think if you don’t love yourself, no one else will love you?

I have heard this a lot! ‘If you don’t love yourself, no one else will’.

Really?

I was with a narcissist. And that was the time when my self esteem was so low that even if he treated me like shit, I thought I deserved it and didn’t oppose much.

Then came a time when I didn’t love myself at all. I had no confidence, I felt like it’s always my fault – I mess up with everything, I could never be as amazing and as attractive as others are, I would never be successful, I can’t do anything.

I was critising myself every single time. I didn’t like myself the way I was. I could note down at least 100 things I wanted to change in me.

That was tough.

And stressful.

I didn’t love myself.

And now when I look back, I noticed a few things –

My friends were always there by my side, telling me how good I am at many other things.

But I didn’t believe that.

My best friend made efforts for me to take a break from this self blame game and enjoy myself.

My mom dad always made efforts to take care of me when I was stressed out.

They’d prepare my favourite food, take me somewhere I love, just to cheer me up.

They also tried to know what was bothering me and talk about possible solutions. But I didn’t tell them.

What could I possibly tell them?

I had no idea what I was doing with my life.

I really hated myself.

But people around me?

They didn’t.

My friends cared for me and my mom dad loved me.

I couldn’t see that. I wasn’t even able to return their love, maybe coz I didn’t love myself.

Our feelings can really trick us sometimes…

When you feel lonely, doesn’t mean you ARE lonely.

When you feel stupid, doesn’t mean you ARE stupid.

When you feel you are not worthy of worthy of happiness, doesn’t mean that’s true.

Feelings just come and go.

Now looking back I just want to tell that struggling Vrunda –

Don’t give up baby. I love you. Open your eyes and see! Everyone loves you. Get away from people who make you feel like you’re nothing.

You are valuable to me.

Moral of the story

Even when you hate yourself, look around and see. Maybe situation isn’t as worse as you think. Maybe it’s all in your head. Maybe next day you will be able to see how much others love you and value you and more than anything…. Maybe next day you will wake up and see how much you love yourself ❤️


And loving yourself is good… Actually it’s a need. It’s necessary.

But not a criteria to be fulfilled to be loved by others.
