:- She called me back. After I had changed back from my crisp formal shirts and shiny leather shoes. She wanted me to be there with her. I had decided not to bail on people. Not until enough people have bailed on me. I changed into a pair of comfortable trousers and Tees and hailed a cab, ran back to her, burning my one day salary in cab fare only. And when I reached there, she was sleeping there, like a baby. She was curled up like a baby girl. She was lean and tiny and when I woke her up, she couldn't believe that I actually came. I helped in cooking. We had dinner. Me and her other two friends. And then she went back to sleep. She slept beside me, carefree and careless. Her hair smelling like her shampoo, and her skeleton knocking against my own. She hugged me in her sleep. I hugged her back. Later on, when sun came back, infused my alcohol and insomnia , my sleep left me early. I woke up, prepared tea, just the way she liked. With some ginger and cardamom. I woke her up and offered her tea. The tea that's gonna make her friends jealous of all the best this world had to offer to them. She had it, in her half sleep, without any doubt, without any hesitation. Then she called me up, reminded me that there was no office for today. That she needed me to hug back. I always doubted that I am someone who can be hugged. But she did. She hugged me. I swept off her hair from her face. Her calm peaceful face reminded of everything that I had to protect about her. Why I ran towards her? Why I felt like she should be happy, whatever happens? Why I will let her know all the tricks up the sleeve so that no one can play with her, the way I play with others? And in between all these, she reached out for my hand, entangled her fingers with mine, embraced my face with her arms, kissed my forehead and whispered, "Go back to sleep, it's okay." And now, seven months down the line, I wonder, what went wrong. What came in between? What made me angry? What made her cry? What made me feel that she was worth the punishment? You make your friends suffer, because you feel like you own them. But maybe, they suffer, because they believe that you will save them when they are suffering.

:- Entrapped. Entrusted. Yet Entangled. He was lost under influence. The love was like a maze where he chose to be lost. He was without hope. Or atleast hope he was looking for was fake. He was watching for illusions. He was hypnotized. By Mirage. By Deception. But Dear Boy, You are weak. You are trapped. By your memories. Your escape to your escapes. Please find your Sunshine. Please find your source of power. To fuel your rage. To Power your anger. And At the end of the Day, you will prevail everyone. Everything. Every fucking thing. Just Rise. Just Shine. _ _ _ _ #photooftheday #mobilephotography #design #architech #lights #wordporn #wordgasm #writing #wildthought #readgood #writersofig #writersblock #latenight #thoughts #lovequotes #lostlove #loves #loveisall #writing
Reading a book a day keeps the stress away — seriously. Books are a form of entertainment, but they're also more beneficial in ways that you may not have ever imagined. If you picked up a habit of reading as a youngster and still read like Rory Gilmore to this day, then you probably already know this to be true: reading can boost your mental health — and that's not just my opinion; there are studies and research that backs it up. According to a study done by the University of Sussex, reading can reduce stress levels by 68 percent. Stress levels and heart rates were monitored while trying out a variety of relaxing methods, such as listening to music, going for a walk, and having a cup of tea — but reading was the strongest method in helping the brain and body relax. So next time you come home from a long, stressful day at work, pick up a book and get lost in it for a few hours.#book #booklover #bookstagram #bookworm #bookshelf #bookshelfdecor #bookloving #bookquotes #bookquoteoftheday #cofee#mentalhealthawareness #exahleit #stress #readgood #reqdgoodbokks #
Library so fancy! I can’t wait until access is granted #readgood #anddootherstuffgoodtoo
:- Charred, stained, uneven rooftop was her favourite place in her two bedroom apartment. Sitting there, looking over the city, she dragged the last puff, swallowed the smoke down with beer straight from the cold can. She saw the city metro rolling away. Occasionally barking dogs made her believe she was not awake alone. She lost track of time there, She was exhausted, but the peace she felt has always been extraordinarily satisfying. She let her mind recede, watching the clouds race against the wind. She too picked up the pace and started thinking about all the good things that were coming to an end and all the bad things she has to strong arm. Her attention was taken away by mild beats of ‘Strangers’ oozing out of earphones, just hanging around her neck reminding her how life is different than movies. Bored she tapped out another cigarette from the pack. Her face was a picture of pain, and her eyes, a cyclone of emotions. She was thinking about the revised definition of words in her life. How forever meant One Year and seven months. How Friendship broke over few egoistic issues. How Love needs to be settled with bond paper. And Sex and Money defines the intensity of Love. Why things can’t be left behind and broken can’t be fixed. Why don’t people come with warranty cards? wouldn’t it be easy if we could read minds instead of words? Bolting upright she stared blindly at the moon with sleep shadowed eyes, with the muffled scream of the heart wrenching that kept her awake. She reaches up to scrub the sleep from her eyes and finds them moist, she explores her face then, finding trails of wetness that lead from her eyes and across her cheeks, over her lips even, those lips part and she touches her tongue to one finger and tastes the bitter salt of tears of sorrow. She shoved the cigarette butt in flower pot, tossed the beer can far away in darkness and took out the phone to capture the painfully lonely lunar hue. Fifteen minutes later, two sleeping pills popped, staring in darkness and listening to the humming of the air conditioner, she uploaded the Photo on social networking site and Captioned it, “Weep, Weep, Weep. And the Moon Shall Remember” !!

:- It's technically a Fail Safe. A chain kind of a chain because we cannot actually keep you chained. That would be way too cruel on humanitarian grounds. It's kind of a undeclared claim, making you believe that you are not supposed to do or say, obviously duly announced, all those things what you say or do to me. You are not supposed to eat,sleep, party etc etc without my consent. We have made you believe that you are supposed to be loyal, stylish, sexy and caring in order to massage our ego and few other things. It was validated by few other people who made you forget that you were born alone and you will die alone, and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of this to make you forget those facts. We have established it as a fact, when it comes as a lightning bolt, where you can't eat, work or sleep and you Just run off and get married. See, Honey. What You Call Love was Invented by Guys Like Me. - - - - - -© excerpt from AMC Mad Men. - #postoftheday #writersofinstagram #writersblock #latenight #thoughts #lovequotes #lostlove #loves #loveisall #writing #wildthought #readgood #wordporn #wordgasm #instawrite #micro #micropoem #smallreads #fresh #madmen .

I have a thing for fairy lights and candles.. And obviously books are my forever love. When these three come together.. I feel all the happiness. This is my library where mostly 'me' is found. ❤ I'm going to marry these novels and have little short stories for children. 😂 🔽 #booksbooksandmorebooks #booksblogger #mylibrary #bookworm #readgood #readbooks #booksmyhappyplace #bookstagram #bookshelf #booksmyhaven

"Loving someone is like moving into a house. At first you fall in love with all the new things, amazed every morning that all this belongs to you, as if fearing that someone would suddenly come rushing in through the door to explain that a terrible mistake had been made, you weren't actually supposed to live in a wonderful place like this. Then over the years the walls become weathered, the wood splinters here and there, and you start to love that house not so much because of all its perfection, but rather for its imperfections. You get to know all the nooks and crannies. How to avoid getting the key caught in the lock when it's cold outside. Which of the floorboards flex slightly when one steps on them or exactly how to open the wardrobe doors without them creaking. These are the little secrets that make it your home." -A Man Called Ove, Fredrik Backman. 🔻 Oh, what to say about this book?! This is my absolute absolute absolute favourite one. Its easy to read and understand. No exotic words to confuse your mind. So many emotions told in such a simple way. This book shows that death is inevitable and how the loss of your loved ones turns you into a complete mess. This story made me laugh and cry at the same time. There was also a point where I just held this book close to my heart and felt its every word and emotion. Its one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read. ❤ Its a must read. ... #bookstagrammer #booksbooksandmorebooks #booksmyhappyplace #readgood

. "I am no stranger to this instinctive phone grab, but I wanted to see if others shared this pattern, so I surveyed eight thousand Christians about social-media routines. More than half of the respondents (54 percent) admitted to checking a smartphone within minutes of waking. When asked whether they were more likely to check email and social media before or after spiritual disciplines on a typical morning, 73 percent said  before. This reality is especially concerning if the morning is when we prepare our hearts spiritually for the day." - Tony Reinke .

[]<>[]<>[]<>[]<>[] . "Following Paul’s words to married couples, we must make it our aim to purge our lives of all unnecessary and unhelpful distractions. Pastor Tim Keller was once asked online: Why do you think young Christian adults struggle most deeply with God as a personal reality in their lives? He replied: “Noise and distraction. It is easier to tweet than pray!” (Said on Twitter, no less!) The ease and immediacy of Twitter is no match for the patient labor of prayer, and the neglect of prayer makes God feel distant in our lives." . "As in every age, God calls his children to stop, study what captures their attention in this world, weigh the consequences, and fight for undistracted hearts before him." .

[]<>[]<>[]<>[]<>[] . "Our smartphones amplify the most unnecessary distractions as they deaden us to the most significant and important “distractions,” the true needs of our families and neighbors." . "My phone conditions me to be a passive observer. My phone can connect me to many friends, but it can also decouple me from an expectation for real-life engagement. When I go into my social media streams, too often I use Facebook to insulate me from the real needs of my friends. Facebook becomes a safe and sanitized room where I can watch the ups and downs of others as an anonymous spectator, with no compulsive impulse to respond and care in any meaningful way. And as I do, I become more and more blind to the flesh and blood around me." .

>>>> . Do You Control Your Phone — Or Does Your Phone Control You? . This is the central question which I invite you to engage through a sound biblical worldview, by reading our book for this month – ‘12 Ways Your Phone is Changing You’ written by Tony Reinke. . Here is what Jackie-Hill Perry (poet, hip-hop artist) said about this book: . “12 Ways Your Phone Is Changing You is an incredibly convicting and profoundly insightful read. Smartphones have become a part of our lives, but Tony explores the devastation to the human mind and soul due to devotion to technology. He calls us to examine not merely the use of our smartphones but the motives that inspire it. This is a necessary book for our generation, to remind us that our phone habits will either amplify or get in the way of our most important longing of all: the soul-satisfying glory of our Savior.” . A small portion of this book is available for free on desiringgod.org. You can purchase it on online bookstores and it is currently on Amazon for 10.90 dollars. Alternatively, if you like Audiobooks, you can get it for free on a 1-month trial with Audible.com . Delight yourself in the Lord! . #bookofthemonth #goodreads #readgood #greatbooks #truth #christianbooks #thelighttrain

>>[]<>[] . "The life-of-the-mind perspective alone won’t capture the full biblical texture. The Christian life is more than mere intellect. And the angle of feeling—the life of the heart—won’t do justice by itself to the full biblical witness. It’s more than simply passion. And doing isn’t the alone biblical perspective on the Christian life. More is happening than mere deeds. Rather, holistic Christian existence is irreducibly thinking, loving, and doing—mind, heart, and hands." . - David Mathis (Excerpts are from our book of the month (Thinking. Loving. Doing. A Call to Glorify God with Heart and Mind). . . #thinking  #loving  #doing  #glorifyGod  #heartandmind  #bookofthemonth  #goodreads  #readgood  #truth  #scriptural  #christianity  #multidimensional  #findthebalance  #learnfromothers  #thelighttrain  #christianblog  #christianbloggers  #thereisloveinsharing
=[]=[] . "God rarely leaves us without a communal context in which some biblical purity and unity are simultaneously functioning in small measure (or we wouldn’t have a community), hopefully guiding us in such decisions. Those of us with an acute bent for purity need to hear often from the unifiers, and those of us typically leaning toward unity need the regular perspective of the purifiers." . "As our finitude conspires with our sin, none of us sees any piece of reality from every perspective (as God does), and what we do see, we frequently misappropriate. So we benefit incalculably to know well the perspectives of others and run them through our developing grid of Bible-informed and Spirit-indwelt thinking, loving, and doing." . - David Mathis (Excerpts are from our book of the month (Thinking. Loving. Doing. A Call to Glorify God with Heart and Mind). . . #thinking  #loving  #doing  #community #ironsharpensiron  #glorifyGod  #heartandmind  #bookofthemonth  #goodreads  #readgood  #truth  #scriptural  #christianity  #multidimensional  #findthebalance  #learnfromothers  #thelighttrain  #christianblog  #christianbloggers  #thereisloveinsharing
>> . "No one cares more for the purity of the gospel—that his central message to humanity not be altered or tainted—than God himself. And, mark this, no one cares more for the unity of his church around her Savior, his own Son, than God himself. God is the great purifier and unifier." . "Some of us have lost the purity impulse altogether. We are happy to say things easy to hear and hard to misinterpret, but none of the tough stuff. We are eager to bring people together—the more the merrier—but we have lost spine enough to speak the difficult, potentially relationship-threatening truths like our Savior does." . "On the other hand, many of us...have repressed the unity impulse. We can spot a supposed theological error from a mile away, and we have no trouble spinning out immediate shaming (and sassy) responses and calculated separations. Anyone different from us, in just about any way, could be a candidate for a verbal beat-down, or at least a relational snub. We have lost the heart to love like our Savior does." . "And a third type creeps in among us reckless sinners: those of us inconsistent enough to swing back and forth between both mistakes, sometimes purifying with no concern for gospel unity, other times uniting without a care for gospel purity. We speak the truth without loving on Monday and love without speaking the truth on Tuesday— all the while falling short of Paul’s simple but nearly impossible challenge for “speaking the truth in love” (Eph. 4:15)." - David Mathis .
