Let’s not talk about the New Year for a minute. Yes, we did step into a new year and have got ourselves a new start but let’s really think about something important.
After we are done with a book or a lesson or any other experience, we summarize and write a mental note to ourselves. Similarly, I think it is nice to write a Note to Self before we move on to new experiences.
This is mine. I hope you write one to yourselves too!
Note to Self
A dark sky full of stars,
Found me wandering about.
Underneath the moonlight it revealed,
How our shadows silently shout.
Doubt, biggest quake in any sphere,
Shakes the very strongest of stones.
So to nullify, keep calm and stay clear,
Key lies in voices and in tones.
Fear, result of our own mind,
Cripples the very ablest being.
So to nullify, challenge the wind,
Fear can be defeated with a little bit of cheating.
Pain, who drops by time and again,
Strangles our mind and heart.
So to nullify, try being insane,
Pain is not really that smart.
And Sadness, the widely regarded spoilsport,
Is in fact our own manifestation.
So to cut its stay short, Smile…
Your shadow will figure out a solution.
