At some point of life or another, each one of us feels the chaos of the Crossroads of life. A churning within which is difficult to express and even harder to get through. Hardships or challenges often come in unannounced ways where we reach a breaking point of having to ultimately make a choice.
One of those huge challenges for me was to get down to the blunt reality of life. My choice was to continue staying in a marriage which I was finally well aware and in acceptance of as – A Loveless, Dead, Emotionally Apathetic Marriage which I had responsibly lived for 11 years. I had given it all I had, even more and waited for magic to happen long enough. But finally, I had decided to get over my denial. But just like we say that Ignorance is Bliss, it did seem so real for once. Was ignorance bliss? Now, knowing what I knew, I had the crossroads of making a CONSCIOUS CHOICE – To move out and bear the burden of a 7 year young with an almost nil bank balance, no real career given a 10 year lag of working permit in foreign lands OR continue being the Master of Pretense.
This was the real deal, the real test of my life, my strength, my sanity and above all the test of FAITH. I didn’t have any answers to WHO to go to, HOW to do it, WHEN to do it, WHAT exactly needed to be done, WHERE to go and I was shaky about the WHY.
What led me through all of that was one thing – A deep inner KNOWING of what felt right and the COURAGE to do it anyway. My story is long and rather magical after that. But in short, I took the leap of faith and I can proudly say now that behind every Super Successful Leader you have ever known, was a BEGINNER’s SOUL. You have to take the 1st step forward and allow to ‘Be Guided’ on the rest.
I was divinely guided by a Team of Humans in the form of Life-Coach, Hypnotherapist, Psychic, Healers whom I sought help from, paid when it felt insane and then followed the Magical journey of the DIVINE GUIDANCE from a Team of inhuman (Supernatural) forces like Angels, Spirit Guides, Deities and more which flipped my barren life terrain into a beautifully flourishing meadow.
Confused just like I was? START ANYWAY and GO FOR IT. SEEK HELP. You Deserve Support, Success and Joy!!

This is an insightful poem that I wrote in my tweens.
I was curious to know how deep the ocean was, but my hand couldn’t reach the ground;
I was curious to know how tall the sky was but my hand couldn’t ladder up
I was eager to know how far the horizon was, but my hand couldn’t stretch enough
I was waiting to discover how huge the earth was, but my eyes couldn’t gather it up
I was wanting to prove how strong I was, but my body couldn’t lift the weight
I was fighting to prove how right I was, but nobody ever listened to me
I was flaunting my beautiful body but somebody was always more beautiful..
One day a street child smiled at me and I smiled back. At this moment I wasn’t eager, I wasn’t curious, I wasn’t waiting, I wasn’t proving and nor was I flaunting! I was emoting; sharing one moment of happiness right from my soul! I was being myself without conditions and expectations.
That’s when I learnt –
The ocean is not deeper than my thought,
The sky is not higher than my will,
The horizon is not further to my foresight,
The earth is not larger than my kindness,
My limbs are not stronger than my tolerance,
My word is not stronger than my humble action,
My body is not better than my soul!

We have wasted a lot of time in proving, arguing, fighting, hurting, earning, back biting and in enjoying. And yet we have not changed this world to a better place!
Have we continued to complain but failed to act, to help, to take responsibility?
There is only a one letter difference between Better & Bitter. Which one do we bend towards often & why? The complaining team or the accomplishing team?
