Ladies (be kind)

Ladies, this blog is about us. So right before I start, I just want you to know that you’re beautiful and it’s wonderful the way you are elegantly carrying those blotches. So be unapologetic about those stretch marks on your back, and those pimples on your face ’cause they don’t define your inner self. Not even a little of it. I’ve seen many girls weeping about man, marriage, commitment issues, job, body problems and many things that are just a part of their life. That’s what make females so desirable. They are concerned about everything as if it’s their chore to be performed. Maybe, you’ve heard this a lot from many writers or blogger about how self-love is important in life but let’s just make it understandable. We are over-thinkers who has always admired other humans like they are some epitome of beauty. It’s fine.When I see that girl in the drug store, buying all the cosmetics to conceal her from the world. I feel heartbroken thinking how much had she gone through criticism, bullying and violation. You must be thinking that she might like doing makeup. Yeah, maybe and there is nothing inappropriate about doing makeup. But a girl who doesn’t wish to do it does it. Just because in this world of forgery, all we do is follow the trend. When there is glamour worshipped, there is no beautiful soul in it. There is no unpleasant feeling about makeup in my heart. Moreover, I love applying makeup. It’s an art and only artists can smudge in the face, so incredibly amazing. But even when you don’t think highly of being a beautiful face, it’s understandable. When you talk about something other than every “him” in your life to somebody, the shine in your eyes is like those of the stars after heavy rain. Let’s just now talk about you. Your dreams, your aspirations and everything related to nothing but “you”. Cause after all beautiful also has a “u” in it. There is no him without an “i”, either. So care about yourself slightly more. Before giving him the first cup of tea in the morning, drink it yourself. Be selfish and don’t you think that makes you less of a good lover, daughter or sister. It’s more about you giving yourself a bit more than others.When you look in the mirror, see those stretch marks and your double chin. Don’t you even try to ignore them, as they are the war results you’ve been fighting for so long? Every bit of it is an accomplishment, so wear them like a crown.Be proud every time you click your feet to the ground, it sounds like power. The power that you own from the time you didn’t let this cruel world affect your explosion. Let the fire within you grow, and become flames that could destroy everybody who’s been cruel to you.That’s alright if you and I, in the past have dated the same guy. I ain’t jealous of you. I’m remorseful, I couldn’t safeguard you from him. I don’t care if you’ve dumped several guys or several guys have dumped you. When you give them the right to choose, you have the right to get rid of them too and vice-versa.I just want to remind you that, focus on being a good soul rather than being apologetic about an ugly face. Cause when you’ll get old, all you want them to remember you by -The old lady who’s so kind to the world that she has nothing to be worried about, cause kindness comes back.-Riya Shah

There is no happiness
In being the prettiest girl in the world
Only jealousy, insecurity, fear and envy
While all the drinkers
Long to drink your wine
All the ad men and false thinkers
They fell for beauty
Like a drunk lover
I fell for beauty
As an art form
As a woman
Beauty has given birth
To Everything

Hi Ray
Thanks for the follow(s) …and/or like(s)
I just realised my days are determined and lead down paths from the feedback by my readers and followers around the world, like you. So thanks for the input.
All your comments and feedback encourage (greatly), uplift and even inspire me to follow “this road less travelled”.
I love my days “interacting with you’ guys and gals”
“Trying hard to be kind and living by the ‘maxim’ ”
“the world’s fourth worst writer”
* and definitely NOT a police constable)
“Driven to uplift, encourage and (perhaps even) inspire”
…”of chaos” (in the “real world”, so says “the nurse”)
Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams

As a very small girl, I strove to offer the kindness I didn’t see around me. I’ve always continued that pledge to myself. However, we must be mindful of those among us who are extremely toxic. If they are not one of my patients, I remove myself from the picture. I refuse to allow them to consume my life.
