HAPPY OMANI WOMEN’S DAY

Happy Women's Day!
We celebrate being us,
We balance rules,
That are just,
We draw the boundaries,
With mutual trust.

May a lady never be
Too eager to please,
Or forced to live
In dread or fear,
Cry alone or hide a tear.

It's 2022,
She's talented too;
Free to choose,
What to do.

It fills the heart
With hope and joy
To see Omani women
In every field lead,
She may or may not
Choose to cook,
To stay home and clean
She's free and does
What she feels like,
She is free to choose,
It's her life.

She may become a leader,
Researcher or Engineer,
Or a happy home maker,
Do both maybe,
Niether in extreme.
It's her choice,
Whatever her dream.

Today let's celebrate,
Insist she shows
Some self love,
Enjoys a good treat,
Or shops
Some lovely jewellery,
A new dress, or
A brand new Lamborghini;
Or may all she does need
Is Me-time by the beach,
Or a yoga retreat.

If you care for her,
Show true respect
And smile and say OK,
Let her disagree on views,
Let her choose to refuse.

She can grow in many ways
The list is endless,
Its her only life,
She must live it
Happily,regret less,
Be treated like a queen,
Wear her crown
And follow her dream.

Dear June,

June, the summer holiday month
Dear June,

A lot in the world,
We find, is out of tune.

As you are coming soon,
May I remind you,
To use all your powers,
To bring relief showers.

Relief from war,
Relief from hate,
Relief from pain.

A good amount of rain,
Enough of food grain,
Please would you bring,
Energy that's new,
And fresh and healing?

Pack along,
A hopeful song,
To be sung in chorus,
Let's sing all June,
Notes in a merry tune.

Please pack all these,
And lots of good luck,
With you, as you come,
Dear June,
My dear June.
May June be cool!

Keep away

Oh I almost forgot…
Keep away 
The urge,
To delay.

Get up!
Do it!
You have to do it anyway.

Exercise?
Declutter?
The follow up call?
Making a meal?
An unpaid bill?

What is it,
You haven't done still?

Today, make it a day
To begin, to attempt, to complete,whatever it be:
Any pending talks,
Your Nature walks.
Or lots of to-do tasks.

'What's your plan?'
Today, to you asks.
Now!

The Art of Worrying

The Art of Worrying
A nagging worry

Might be an opportunity

To bring about change

And turn the worry

Into a personal change,

Take responsibility,

To improve self,

Change a 'given' belief,

Re-question, redefine

What bothers you and why.

Think beyond the clouds,

Of anxiety and worry,

They may shower upon you,

A refreshing insight,

Or wisdom anew.
See every anxiety and worry as a call for change.

I believe, I trust

Success
Success is the result of our genuine talent, sincere effort and strong decision to not give up before we achieve our goal. Yes. But then how is it that only few succeed while many do not, despite of the talent, effort and determination? 

We do reflect- oh the timing was not right, or some stroke of bad luck...etc.

I feel above and beyond the obvious, there are four more things- our success is attained as it is:

First, God is answering someone else's prayer.

Two, our success is fruit of our ripened past good karma.

Three, our success is a blessing recieved.

Four, our success is pre determined, our path calls us, as we are chosen to be instrumental in accomplishing larger designs for the larger good.

So is our success something to be proud of, or not?
I think actually it is better to keep our grace and have a gratitude-filled heart towards a universal supreme energy and understand our success as a rich and truly humbling experience when we count how many people indirectly or directly helped us get this success, get us here.
So ours, is then, the role of an instrument and to be chosen as an instrument we may feel gratitude, exercise detachment and show affection.
We must do what we do to
feel alive with excitement while doing our work, feel alive with joy when we accomplish, live in that moment fully and then detach and move on to something different and new- for a rolling stone gathers no moss, and well, we cannot cling to one success forever just like we cannot keep on eating sugar forever!

Taste success, devour it, savour it, then 'gargle' with humbleness and gratitude, cleaning your mind, heart and soul and keep moving on...
Move on to do more, to new beginnings!

Uncertainty is okay

Wait…
Uncertainty:
It is a gap,
A blur,
The distance,
Between the answer,
And its question.

It is the time
When we have to sit back,
Not knowing,
What's next in line,
Feeling fear and lack.
Its best to wait,
And let the universe,
Gather its intelligence,
And put the best stuff,
Together for us.

Uncertainty is quite
An humbling experience.
It makes us patient,
And lean on faith,
And seek divine guidance.

Just breathe.
Just be.
May the universe conspire,
And may you wait out;
For those who wait patiently,
Also serve.

Accept uncertainty,
Let life unfold.
In the face of uncertainty,
Be stoic, be bold.

Gallery

Have faith

Watch flowers bloom,
Listen the birds sing,
Bump into bunnies
Scurrying and hurrying,
Dancing and hip-hopping.

Rise and shine,
With love and faith,
Of all the divine,
And in God's trust
May your soul be refined,
And in blessed love,
May you remain entwined.
Remain blessed

The only control

Refuse to be run over by circumstances
In every difficult situation in life, the only way to be in charge is to control your mind,control your tongue and control your actions.
It is smarter to be more in control of yourself than to try and control others.
Silencing the mind and overcoming negativity, overthinking and judgemental presumptions, are all necessary in trying times.

In the end, its all about this:
You can't control others, you can't control the world, so just learn to control yourself.

The power lies within.
Hold your voice until you need to use your roar
Gallery

Control

Think about it
'You can never expect life to be as you would like life to be. But you can always expect the most carefully thought of ways to deal with what is thrown at you. So how you respond is the key to your own well being.
Do not rush into a reaction immediately. Take your time.
You choose to be a highly inflammable chemical or not, in the moment. Be gentle to yourself.

Increase your self control. Score high in it. Self control is a challenge. Score atleast 70% and aim 90% in 5-10 years".

Think about it.😊
Good morning Duniya!

Anticipate

Hopeful, peaceful,

And lovely moments.

As April approaches

Here comes April
This April:

Hold your positive thoughts longer,
It makes your words
Sweeter and stronger.
Hold your peace longer,
It makes your words calmer.
Hold onto truth forever,
It gives your words
Power.
What thoughts you keep,
That far you'll reach,
Your intent, your thoughts
Into your words will seep,
And find a place
In your speech.
Be word-conscious today onwards!
Be April 'Wise'
Not April fool,
Be 'Word-wise',
Relaxed and cool.
April goal

Teach your daughter this:

You are empowered 

If your bank account is

surplus and sufficient,

Your house help is

Regular and efficient,

If you are well-trained,

On raising your profit

quotient,

And no one dares to

Stop or question,

Your spending decision.

You are empowered

If you walk to work

Without being taunted

Or made to feel guilty

To not first give birth;

But instead encouraged

To up your own worth,

And decide if you are

Ready to bring

A life on earth.

You are empowered,

If you have your

Own house and

Medical insurance,

Not empty promises,

or false ‘future’

assurance.

You are empowered,

If you are not distracted

To ‘appease’ as

An object of beauty,

Rather raised with

self -defence skills

And busy raising

Your immunity.

You are empowered

If your effort is

Rewarded,

Your results applauded,

But most of all,

Your smile is tear-proof,

You enjoy being

Your truly unique self,

Not pressured to be

A colour, a height,

A certain weight,

That you need

To ‘improve’.

You are not empowered

If you are obsessed,

To be accepted by others,

or

Give yourself up,

Just to be 'approved'.
