Outside My Window #WordsMatter

I have looked outside so many windows and seen varied views. Seasons changing, different weathers, nature in all its glory and the rage of it too.

The lush green hues brought about by the rains. The dull browns that the palette and paint brush of Autumn shades everything around.  The washed out colors of Winter, till Spring renews it all over again. The cycle of birth, life and death,  so beautifully executed by nature.

Why don’t we learn this important lesson which Nature tirelessly repeats year after year, that while every phase is transitory, it is also needed. That there would not be one without the other, and there is a pattern that is followed in what may seem like chaos.


The summer sun shines in through my window. Sometimes it is so harsh that I have to shut my window to save myself from its glare. I stand inside and watch nature bearing the brunt of its harshness, slowly wilting away. Isn’t that also what happens to us when we are around harsh people? We slowly wilt away. What can we do to save ourselves? Just shut your mental window.

Keep your window open to let the soft breeze flow in. A breeze blows away old energies and replaces it with the new. Air your mind the same way, with getting rid of old thoughts and letting them be replaced with fresh ones.

Let the drizzle of rain wash away the grime and dust collected, just like tears wash away your pain. Let soft sunlight peeking inside energize you.

You have windows in your house, but also remind yourself that your eyes are the windows to your soul. What you see is what you want to see.
