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.

I received this tag from Jyothi Nair at Shortened Tales. It’s my pleasure to pass on this tag to Lata Sunil at Kaapi Times. There are 47 of us on this Blog Hop and it will be spread over 3 days – 2, 3, 4 August. Do follow the #WordsMatter Blog Hop and prepare to be surprised!

  1. “A breeze blows away old energies and replaces it with the new.” Loved this line, M and it summarises your post beautifully. Your take on a window is quite interesting.

  2. Lovely post, you are explained the life in such meaningful words. Let the rain wash away the grime. Open the windows of your heart and let the sun shine inside and gove you the warmth.

    1. What you see is what you want to see. This is the truth we should never forget. Loved reading the post !!

  3. What you see is what you want to see is a true statement.
    Empowering words. Shutting the mental windows when with harsh people is tough though. The constant blows permeate through the windows no matter if they are closed or open. And then keeping them shut for too long creates troubles when the best thing to do would be to test the rusted hinges and open them to let the refreshing breeze in and also the rain to wash off the grim.
    Do you think I am blabbering? 😀

  4. I love leaving my window open literally and figuratively and enjoy the fresh breezes removing all the bad energy.

  5. Right you are – nature repeats its cycle year after year like it’s telling us everything is transitory and yet we don’t learn this valuable lesson. And we crib and complain at every change (repeating that for me).

  6. Lovely message Mayuri. True..we need to chose right things to see to keep ourselves happy.

  7. Opening the windows of our mind, so simple yet so rare! We see what we want to see, poignant words!

  8. Yes, your eyes are the windows to your soul and what you see is what you want to see. This is such a thoughtful and thought-provoking post with a lot to ponder on and chew too.

  9. Nature tries it’s best to show us many things but we tend to ignore those signs. Connecting with nature and understanding true essence of our existence in this trivial lifetime is very important indeed!

  10. Beautiful strong statements there, Mayuri. Open your mind and experience the new things that life offers you, I guess! Thank you for participating in the bloghop. Hope you are having fun!

  11. Beautiful thoughts, Miri. 🙂 Especially about the rain.

  12. Thats right Mayuri, it all goes down to acceptance. Acceptance of the transitory phase, of the cycle of life and death and of the fact that we must shed out old thoughts to replace them with new ones.

  13. What we see is what we want to see. Sums up the post for me. What we need to ask ourselves is what are we going to do with what we see.

  14. Thats deeply insightful post Mayuri. All seasons are necessary and one without the other is indeed meaningless. Beautiful.

  15. Your post is very pensive and ponders on multiple aspects. I agree with you that Nature offers us such amazing lessons. The circle of life which goes through phases is exactly how our life also pans out. Very positive message to see what we want to see, even positivity in adversity.

  16. I have always believed that our eyes are windows to our souls. We can actually read people’s mind by looking at their eyes. I have learnt to stay away from people who have taught their eyes to lie! A wonderful post with so many elements in it. Loved it!

  17. Nobody can argue with your point that “Eyes are the windows to your Soul” . Beautifully penned down, thought-provoking article

  18. There’s so much Nature and life wants to teach us, but we often choose to close the windows. Very thoughtful post, Mayuri. Glad to have you on the Blog Hop. Your words matter!

  19. This is so beautifully written, Mayuri. What you see is what you want to see – how true are these words! 🙂

  20. What a lovely take on the prompt.

  21. I loved when you said that we see what we want to see. Our eyes are sure a window to our soul. You got a thoughtful post there, Mayuri. I am so glad you joined #WordsMatter. Thank you!

  22. First of all please accept my apology for being so late in reading this post…much after the BlogHop is over. And I must say, loss was all mine.
    Such a soul searching post Mayuri. All our senses do feed our soul and much then depends on us to control what is fed to it. Self help and self love starts at this very fundamental step.
    This post reminded me of your #Maytiviation posts M. Miss that weekly dose of motivation.

  23. You are so correct when you say ‘ you see what you want to see.’ I am a true believer of these lines and try to see the good before any negativity tries to hit me.
