"Perfect is as perfect shows."

Perception.

This is one of the strongest words today. Like when we talk about how the world is, we never understand that it is exactly as how we perceive it. To make our lives a much better, all we need to do is change that point of view by tilting it a little and focus our energies in the right place. I won't be the best person to tell or discuss how or where to focus your energies but I can tell you something about perception. 

The first step to all of this is acceptance:
Understand one thing and one thing which will always be there. Life is unfair. Once you accept this fact, you'll be a little clear on things like "Nothing will ever come easy to you". You will atleast stop repeating the fact that its unfair and smile at whatever happens, feeling that you knew it.

Ambition:
Be ambitious as hell. This doesn't mean that you will go crazy, no. That's over ambition but just simple plain ambition towards either your goal, the goal which you want to achieve. It can be something objective as being a pioneer in some field or be as subjective as being rich or being successful.  Whatever it is, sort it out and be and move forward. 

Work Harder:
Now that you know that life isn't fair and never will be start working harder coz hey, you are ambitious anyway. You have to achieve what you've been wanting. So start working harder. Give in more. Go over the line. Cross it and do more. Just do enough to not let anyone stand there and be a competition. Don't do it to eliminate competition, no. That's again a seed to negativity. Do it because you want to. 

Break the acceptance:
Now that you're working hard and being ambitious. Forget about everything else and understand that you might or might not get a fruit. Forget everything. Break the whole thing about life not being fair because it is.
"Look at people who're below you and be happy".
Below you would here refer to the people lower in the social strata. Everyone has something missing for whatever they have. Understand that. You're reading this post, you have something to read it on. There are a million other people who don't. Children who don't get proper meals. 

You might ask me "Why should I compare myself with the people below me? Why not the great ones?" It is because I want you to stay happy, not absolutely content. 

When you see people above you, set them as targets you want to surpass, if you want to and move towards them while working your way up the ranks. If someone is sitting on top and not doing anything, it is because of a reason that they have worked when they were in your place or if you think that it came too easy to them, there must be some problem somewhere. It cannot be perfect. Nothing is perfect. No one is perfect. 

"Perfect is as perfect shows."

Change your view and change everything. Life is as you see it, as you perceive it. Try staying positive, try staying alive.

Today, I cannot believe in anything

Today, I cannot believe in anything. I feel like I am doublechecking everything I hear from multiple sources to support or to refute any opinion or act. I was born in '94 so I didn't always have the internet at my disposal, I saw it flourish and today I am partially afraid of it.

It reminds me of the various books and articles I have read on dystopian societies, which I always thought were great, but fiction. Today, I think I was wrong. I live in a world where news channels show what drives ratings so that more people view the news channels and hence they can sell advertising spots for a higher price. Today I see people sharing their views and getting attacked. Today, I feel disturbed, afraid and confused.

In classic dystopian fiction, there is generally an authoritarian government. Fortunately, we're not there (yet). Not in all parts of the world. There would be people watching you everywhere, everytime and the government will have the power to sniff you out anytime they…

Four liners - The Water Set

These are some 4 line poems which I write when I am slightly low and want to feel better. Apparently, getting it out of my system is a real solution which works for me 🤷🏻‍♂️

Drowning and Ducks
I drowned before I swam,
No ducks were my friends,
I swim with my eyes to the floor,
Mostly, I am still alone.

Gallows
Disappointed by the land,
I flew to the turbulent seas,
The waves drowned me this time,
I washed up on the beach.

More water

Fishes swam to sing,
I drowned myself to hear them,
Fishes died breathing the fresh air,
I grew a pair of gills.

I M, the attention eating plague

IM Instant messaging
Background: I have a gift, the gift is the ability to sleep almost anywhere instantly and most of the time my phone is mostly on ‘silent mode’, so I never hear the beeps. Infact, sometimes I get shocked when I hear an unfamiliar sound coming out of my pants. 👖 (pant emoji is the fun most thing I discovered today)
Trigger incident: As usual, I was sleeping on my way to the airport and this time the only difference was that my mobile was not on silent. While I was listening to Damien Rice and getting ready to fall asleep, I hear a ping. I didn’t open my eyes but then I heard 7 more. After the first one, I had told myself that it is okay to let go one text but it still took mental processing. However, when the flurry started then I was just so impatient that anything could have happened. I tried to rationalize and wait but realized it was just me worrying about what they could have been and wasting time on that rather than fixing the instant gratification monkey 🐒wi…
