Re-blog: Survive or Thrive

A world getting crowded up with materialistic wows each passing day but losing the true spirit of human nature and peacefulness.

What it is we are running after? A question we must ask ourselves every now and then because it can give us an insight about our own self.

I read this simple but amazing piece of thoughts at Kate’s blog about surviving or thriving in today’s world, which can be used as a set of good reminders about our own self, about what we do everyday and for what purpose.

Read it out below!

 

aroused

Is life busy but still a breeze

or just surviving with ill ease

Addicted to devices

Chasing desires and vices

Keeping up with trends

Catching up with friends

Botox to lips or face

World flying by at a rapid pace

Duties, commitments galore

Never satisfied, looking for that flaw

Fear and insecurities abound

Need constant entertainment around

Pause and reflect

to see what it is that you neglect

Living is much more than survival

Breath out, give calm a revival

Daily Prompt:  Survive

The Empty Days

These days are empty. Without any purpose or life.

Much like a pebble on a lake side, waiting for someone to pick it up and throw it far away. Or someone might pick it up and wonder how beautiful this little pebble is.

Wonder how many such days are ahead of me!!

But more importantly, will I be thrown away or studied?
