A New Pollyanna

Image

These days I’ve started looking at the world from a different perspective; it seemlike I’m reliving the life in a new way like Pollyanna.  

“When you look for the bad in mankind expecting to find it, you surely will.” (Pollyanna- a glad girl) 

Pollyanna a best-selling 1913 novel by Eleanor H. Porter is now considered a classic of children’s literature, with the title character’s name becoming a popular term for someone with the same optimistic outlook. 

The novel’s success brought the “Pollyanna principle” (along with the adjective “Pollyannaish” and the noun “Pollyannaism”) into the language to describe someone who seems always to be to find something to be “glad” about no matter what circumstances arise. Wikipedia  

So thanks to Pollyanna’s  contribution to our way of thinking and making our lives full of gratification. 

At this point of time lots of thoughts want to find a way from my mind on to the paper. Well I will try to control them for the time being, ‘coz I want to bring them out beautifully during A-Z Challenge 

From now my job will be to:  

  • look at things with positivism, 

  • laugh on the issues that irritate me, 

  • understand that time will always change it will never be the same, 

  • be flexible and clear, 

  • feel complete from within; my breaths are the proof of this. 

  • do everything without expectation

 

While writing for the challenge, genres may differ but the message will be same, that is to find good and appreciate. Hopefully this will reflect in my blog posts throughout the challenge….

Happy Writing! 2014 A-Z badge

A Wise Fool

Write Tribe- Festival of Words- Day 5 – brother-and-sister

share a personal experience that will inspire

 

One fine morning I and my younger brother were waiting for the school bus,  I was in grade 7 and my brother in grade 3  at that time. My brother was holding his craft project very carefully which he had to submit for the school craft exhibition, so that day out of excitement he got ready before time and persisted to leave for the  bus stop.  As we continued to wait, one of our neighbors stopped there and started inspecting our things.

My brother’s project was a nicely laid beautiful house with a garden around and cars parked in it. Our neighbor’s praise for my brother’s project made me feel like a winner because I was the one who did all that for him, putting my own project aside. I was about to tell the reality but remained quiet because my brother’s face was gleaming with joy.

On the other hand my project was not at all noticed as it was a simple flower vase, made in a little time left after completing my brother’s showy project. My silence made me foolish at that time (because I could see comparison in our neighbor’s eyes) but I felt myself wise because my silence gave my sweet little brother immense happiness.

Since then it became my habit and I enjoyed being wise from inside.1507549_10152103487910435_785877824_n

Every now and then many incidents occur where our giant pride willingly becomes a dwarf for the sake of harmonious surroundings.

Every time when I lose myself, I gain a heart. I love that wise fool in me. I consider it as a best weapon for bringing in peace.

P.S –  I wish that this aspiration  of mine survives forever…

This is one of my old posts, and I truly get inspired after recalling those pure and lovely childhood memories…

Spreading Smiles

 

Write Tribe Festival of Words #3 : Free Write

277174_188780927829143_1282826605_nLast evening I was invited at my friend’s party. It was a huge gathering, and like any ostentatious party it had every element of extravagance in it. From theme decorated venue to the hostess’s designer outfit, every element was flamboyant; which seemed to be an exaggerated show of status rather than meeting with friends.

While returning back home, a thought struck my mind. We people do so much expenditure to maintain our status, and when we have to spend for a noble cause our thinking starts processing; even after that we do not reach any conclusion. Like spendthrifts, we buy unnecessary expensive items, but when the question erupts for any charity, we all pretend, as we have not heard. No doubt, there are people who do a lot for a good cause without letting others know, but those are only countable.

The ones, who can really afford, if they cut off only ten percent of their extravagance and involveImage themselves in any charity cause, are sure to bring changes in our society. The smiles on the faces of the impoverished will give them immense pleasure, which will be incomparable to any other pleasure gained by spending money.

So let’s all be responsible, and light just one little candle. If everyone follows the same path there will be sparkling and smiling candles all over the world, and then our planet will be the brightest one in the whole universe.
