Overboard with emotions!

My amplifying emotions has been always a problem with me..in all my relationships on this planet i always have given more than the other person could give...Had it ever happen to you where you have been standing only on the sending end?
How much can you give and if you don't recieve the same frequency how much can you emit ?
In similar situations the frequency dies a slow death because you are constantly trying to match two things a) expectation of that relationship in your head and b) the frequency of the other person and whilst the process your own frequency changes.
I always indulge more emotionally like a fool waiting to be made fun of ! After suffering also it didn't change my intensity...it hurts when you are totally in it and the other person just takes you lightly...i think because you become too much available , too much available to talk , to text as you keep the person on priority and not because you are free and unoccupied.The other person doesn't realise it and takes you for granted...and i hate this part!
Why doesnt you recieve as much as you give? When i can invest my lengths n breadths of emotions in a relationship , why not recieve the same passion. I know people are different an blah blah . But the simple rule of life says - what you give is what you get !  What is the use of Karma if it gives it back to you in form of other people , and not in that particular relation?I feel a relationship is  futile if it is not intense!
So the theories of may be you weren't meant to be together or it was not suppose to last also doesnt solves my curiosity! If you can recieve why can't you give back ? Either stop being on the recieving end at all or just respond! People all their lives can't decide what are they looking for , when they can't identify they even loose what they already have.
Life doesn't gives second chances... always value what you get whether it is small or big but the other person is investing emotionally,you might not fall for it initially but eventually you will realise that this is what you have been seeking. So if you ever get lucky recieving the mountains of emotions and love , don't fear to climb it ...every step of it will be worth your time.

Of Passion and Self love

And that's how I keep coming back to  you , with different speeds but dire need of love. The more I think about you the more I feel I loose myself , its like entering the world of illusion .. of fantasies .. of dreams where whatever I desire I can achieve with your presence. The passion which brings us together bind us tight has an address of its own residing in our hearts unleashed.

The first time I was without you, I couldn't find a way on my own , I was like a phoenix which couldn't resurrect, that's how much I depended on you, but you never realized the madness I carried in my heart and soul for you. There were ways to define my love for you but I hardly could find words or synergize with your energy.

The second time I was without of you ..I was strong, strong enough to hide my weakness without you, I understood that by this time you are used to the fact that I can live without you. You took me lightly again and I broke down to pieces in my heart, but I stood strong thankfully you taught that very well to me. 

Then again a time came when we met , we met fiercely in the same tangent this time procrastinating the going away time this time. Everything looks same now as the first time with you and I passionately in love , the only thing remains changed that I am unaffected by  your behavior , I am strong in my heart and mind. I am no longer afraid of you leaving neither do I am refraining to keep myself away from you.Because I know somewhere in my mind that although our love  is  persistent but still we were never on the same page and you will still go away.

So here I am all strong headed, unaffected and self dependent , I realized in the due course that you don't need anyone else to assure you or praise you all along the way and you can do it pretty well yourself . We do get dependent on relationships in life and they become our main reasons to be stay alive but believe  me striving for self happiness is the only thing which will help us in long run and makes us keep going.

Grecian Memories -Travel Diaries


I recently happened to travel Greece for a short holiday with my family and it happened to be an ecstactic trip for all the research we have done for the whole month, it felt as of we saw practically all of Greece online only...I so wanted to write this post not only to  highlight my itenary and all the good things we saw there for the reference but also to keep my experiences safely in words to which I can come back to whenever I want. It was a 8 day trip so we tried to cover as much as we can to see the beautiful islands of Greece.
There are approximately 1500 islands in Greece few of them are very popular and touristy like Corfu , Crete, Mykonos ,.Santorini , Rhodes to name a few! We covered Athens, Mykonos , Santorini and a day cruise of 3 islands.

DAY 1 : We straight away headed to National Archealogical Muesuem in the morning as we were staying in central athens with an air bnb accomodation it was not more than 10 min of walk,it had every thing about the greek civilization and everything they have kept safe and sound...the sagas of their superheroes.
After lunch we headed to a Monstriaki station through Metroit was a hep place with a proximity to Acropolis in rear view to the streets with cafes and old houses on the side leading to the acropolis muesuem and the Acropolis. The walk was beautiful in the middle of the town, the cobbled streets, the famous plaka stairs.Metro is quite easy to use and convinient too with 3 lines in working it makes travelling alot comfortable. We visited the Acropolis muesuem too and after dinner and a delicious homemade famous gelato we headed back to the apartment.
.



DAY 2: We were inclined towards this day cruise where they take you to show 3 -4 island in a day ,we opted for three islands in a day called Hydra , Porus and Aegena. The islands were beautiful and exotic ...silent yet so much exhorbitant. Porus is very famous for its greek yogurt icecream. Aegena is very famous for its pistachio groves as it is the biggest producer of pistachio and houses a Monastry which is famous all over the world, we even  tried the authentic sweets of almond whose taste is still on my tongue.



 

DAY 3 : It was a lovely bright day and so perfect to see Athens...so we took a metro to Syntagma square where we saw the grand ceremony of changing of guards which happens everyhour for 24 hrs right outside the Parliament ,from there we boarded a hop on and off bus for the city sightseeing whose ticket validates for 24 hours....the city has a historical importance and whether it was Acropolis or the temple of Zeus the monuments had a story of their own. The Panatheniac stadium hosted the first Olymics of the Modern world , its a breathtaking stadium and it stand so tall and magnificient tell the glories of the  athelets. All in all an eventful day which ended beautifully with the shopping and dining in beautiful Plaka area..that is a must visit if you ever happen to travel to Athens.


 
DAY 4: It was an island hopping day and we headed to Mykonos for a  day in a  ship called Sea jets..it was a three hour  ride ,smooth enough..Mykonos was a beautiful place like Heaven on earth  ...an island on the hill with white washed houses,and weather so beautiful we checked in our hotel with perfect view of the sea after resting for a while we headed to the car hire shop,hiring a car comes pretty handy , and you easily get a car of your choice and convinience. Off we went to the windmills the parking was right behind the windmills, as it was a shoulder season it was damn windy. The famous windmills are one of its kind and defintely a worth to watch,its recommended to go in daylight to get photos clicked. Then we headed to the coffee shops 5 min walking from the windmills adjascent to sea offering a beautiful sight of the sunset. Just behind the coffee place was the much talked about Mykonos town...and it took my breath away with narrow cobbled streets, whitewashed shops with blue ,red and green gates were selling mostly souviniers and fashion material. Even if you are not intrested in the shopping this place is a must visit to experience the feel of it as it offers many restaurants too we had an authentic Italian food consisting of handmade pastas. I wanted to stay long but the time came when we had to leave and we headed back to the hotel. Personally i felt that it would have been better if we stayed 2 days in mykonos for the kind of place that was, although the beach clubs were all closed as it was October but  if it was summers the beach clubs like Tropicana and Scandinavia would have been in full business. Don't miss these popular clubs when you visit Mykonos.


 

DAY 5: It was another island hopping day and we went to Santorini the most shooted island of Greece. The Sea jet ride was terrible this time because the sea waves were high and in full swing because of the high tide, I won't recommend the Sea jet ride if the ocean is  having a high tide. After reaching Santorini we stayed in Perissa , we explored the Black beach of Perissa like Perivolos,Kamari which are famous for there black small pebble beaches,with hills in the background it also has cafes and restaurants around for satieting the apetite. We tried the stuffed Pita bread, Greek salad , Dtakos which are the famous greek foods.

 

DAY 6: We hired a Car and explored Thira (Fira) ,its like a downtown market with all the shops and the cafes , happening place!  we had Gyros for lunch that day , its an authentic sandwich made of pita and filled with falafel , meat etc just like shewarma but definitely tasted different after a while we even did a wine tasting tour in a Bar it actually gave me a lot of insight being a non drinker. Then we headed to a cliff walk from Fira to Imerovigli (name of a village), so this cliff walks extends till Oia but we did till Imerovigli as we were going to Oia the next day. The walk was magnificient with the view of the ocean , cliff,whitewashed houses; attached to Fira is a village called Firostefani and then comes Imerovigli so the walk ended with a sunset we witnessed at Imerovigli. The walk uphill was worth every step and its a must do if you visit Santorini.





Day 7: It was the day we visited another beach called the red beach of Akrotiri .
If was a red cliff with red sand and absoloutely clear water, the sight was rare and fulfilling then we headed for the town of Akrotiri where we visited La Ponta a 800 year old Venetian castle which is restored privately,where musical programmes happen. It was on the top of the village crossing the authentic street and houses of the locals. Then we headed for the last tip of the island where the lighthouse was located but as we found it too far we just stopped by on a local and traditional restaurant with authentic Greek food and we relished every bite . We came back to the hotel and checked out as we headed for a cave house experience in Oia. The Cave house in Oia was a different experience with the rooms built in cave style even the bathrooms..Oia has lot of hotels with cave style room , it is very scenic and beautiful place and a must visit to enjoy the view of the cliff from these Cave houses. In the evening we explore Oia, it is one of the poshest places in Santorini with high end restaurants and shops. We finished the day with photographs and an Italian cuisine last but not the least we tried Ouzo the very renowned drink of the Greek island.


 
Day 8: As we flew back to Athens to catch our flight back home we had a lay over for 5 hours so we thought to check out the Attica zoological park ,there is a nice service on the airport called care4bag which stores your luggage according to the height for a specific period of time. We stored our luggage there and saw the zoo, the zoo was fairly huge with multiple animals ,reptiles,birds,fishes of all types , I was pretty impressed with the dolphin show and the way they layed out the whole zoo. My little ones had a great time there and i would recommend it if you are visiting Athens with kids.
And finally it was time to head back home with a mind full of memories and heart full on the brim. It will always be one of my memorable trips.

Time and Again

Time and again i thank God that I met u...
Time and again i feel lucky that our paths crossed
Time and again i pinch myself to make sure if its real...that i have you..
Time and again i miss you ...like a small child wanting to wrap you in her arms...
Time and again how i wish if i could spend each second of my life with you...
Time and again i try to hold myself to not to over react in your absence
Time and again i fail because i don't want towaste our time together..
Time and again i feel miserable after speaking so much also i can't express what you are to me...
Time and again your simplicity takes me by an awe...your control makes me want more of u...n ofcourse your love to look forward to..
Time and again i fall in love with u over n over...
Time and again i become sure that u r the only one whom i was looking for...and there is nothing more i could ever ask for..

Slow down

Slow down a bit there is to much to go for
Slow down a bit and enjoy it all
In no time everything will change
And later you will regret it all
Slow down a bit its not a race to finish
Slow down a bit this phase will also diminish You will wonder where did the years ran away
I was young just a while ago making the moments fray..
Slow down a bit to look at your body sometimes Slow down a bit and make it worthwhile Thrash the ego, wear a smile, leave your mark in everyones heart
Because you know soon it will all become past Slow down a bit make time for your family
Slow down a bit dont let the stress sway
A life so small to live is running away so far away We are holding up the grudges to make our speed slow and fray
Miss it or make most of it is the option we have to get away
Slow down a bit to travel to explore the world so big
Slow down a bit to relish a 5 course meal!
Spend the time with people you love
Or follow your heart's passion with a great deal Slow  down a bit there you are running too fast Slow down a bit there is much more to life than only that!

Pokemon GO hustle

As the Pokemon go  game is trending on the internet after a limited release including few countries never did i know that it will affect me also in a way..
The time for releasing the game was perfect as the summer holidays started in most of the western countries..secondly it dealt with a character that is well associated "pokemon"...thirdly they kept the concept the same of catching a particular pokemon, and lastly but largly its just addictive, there seems to be 142 pokemon variety (thanks to the pokedex which tells you all the available pokemons)where you can have multiple of each , the pokeballs are something you need to catch them with and you get them from the pokestops...(which here in my city is just one place...at the train station)
So obviously the balls are vital and not all balls can catch the desired pokemon some goes in vain...on top of all this game detects your location and shows all the pokemon nearby on a real time map...most of them located at weird places like in the middle of a garden...on top of the bridge...around a roundabout...in a particular house...n all the crazy and weird places you can think about!
All this and more  information credentials goes to my two nephews 12 and 16 respectively who enlightened me in the last 10 days...as a result i am technically dragging my car (below 20 kmph) on the road to let their pokemon eggs hatch..i am going to train station and buying a parking token to just stand there and get the free pokeballs...i apply brakes at most crucial places sometimes even in the middle of the road with a traffic signal...i am going to and around all the parks ..i never even knew exist, taking up lanes which were never explored!
Not only that my 5 yr old (who never heard about this pokemon ) knows the whole encylopedia about Pokemon and demands me to buy him some pokemon related toys! This game is taking up lot of focus from the daily lives , as the game goes wherever you go in the real time , and also there is no end to it But I am glad that , that it is taking the kids out of their comfort zones, of roaming outside in the open, they get happy to see people playing the same on the streets. Its a small city so nothing is that crazy!but the big cities must be challeneged with the craziness caused!
I was tempted to download it but thankfully i am off the grids for now....for rest of you who are the pokemon go lovers following the hustling , looking around for the rare pokemons as if  discovering a pot full of gold! This pokemon go has caused a phenomena , where technology is blended with the openspaces...and i never knew that it will take me places too.

Are we really irreplacable?

So many times we come across this statement in our varied relationships--"No one can take your place" or "you are irreplaceable "but how much do you think it stand true...are we really irreplaceable? People come and people go and their fond memories is what captivates us and make them stand out. All our lives we just keep knitting memories some good and some bad; we are known for some and almost forgotten for the other few. While building up all these memories we somehow setup a notion that we no longer can experience similar or better memories with any other person. Our brain stores them as the best of all thus we say that no one can take place of a particular person in our lives.
It seems so foolish to believe so. It takes away the chances of meeting someone new and completely ruins the chances of getting much closer too! I believe that our heart is too fragile and gullible to carry in line with the brain, maybe that's the reason why there are people who experience falling in love more than 1 time because heart carries on the seeking, of a likehearted soul.
The heartbreaks have changed thanks to facebook for cheering up and helping recovering faster,the falling in love has changed thanks to instagram to display it better , being together has become acceptable thanks to the tweeting trolls.Everything and everyone has lost its value and still the technology is helping us to survive.In midst of this if anyone says that "no one can take your place " i completely fail to rely.
The loyalties today are shaken up and the meaning of the words in today's life are lost and there is no way to get those back, and ofcourse each one of us are replacable in thus volatile world! I hope i differ to agree later on this but thats the hard fact to accept.
