 When Start Started

Phoenix is a mythical bird which cyclically regenerates itself. It reproduces itself from the ashes of its predecessors. Might the question hammering many intellects why mention of phoenix for this scribble of my pen.
 For me we are all like phoenix notwithstanding  our being into shackles of kindred.Nevertheless we all are individuals with our own self, being and presence. Precisely  we all too are phoenix. If we comprehend this perhaps many of our troubles would take a back seat. If we all know to regain and reborn from our set of ordeals, existence of stress, heart burns and even ailments (Although not all but some) will be of minimal birth. Seems ambiguous, right?
Time offers us many damages in our life and I am no great not to face that. At the outset the broken pieces of my aspirations from people and situations mirrored my dying soul. Was that the end of everything? No, infact it was the start of gathering all broken pieces into one whole, my real meaning of subsistence . Everything initiated like birth of a sapling, so beautiful, magnificent, unsullied, tender and luxuriant.
I reproduced myself from my ashes of traumas, distress and miseries. Were those dead organisms really required to make me or spoil me? No. the power lies within all of us. Power to be phoenix in our lives. Don't bury it and whiz it out and mingle with dust and ashes. Remember the core takes birth from dust and gets back to dust only, the dust of start is the start.
No looking back to anything that is short lived or was superfluous ,give a peep instead into pores of dust to grow crop of hope to harvest life. This new shoot can brave any storm of life as it knows its roots are in dust and not in the sky. Deeply sowed and intact roots will grow in you a person so strong and mighty. Phoenix of you start the start to get started, if you trust yourself and your worth arrows of worldly sufferings will pinch you needle point only.
Start gathering the ashes of your injuries and be a phoenix to help yourself not to recycle your miseries and misfortunes.

Stress: How to Combat
Stress stretches its reach from mind to heart. Usually people with vulnerable disposition are prone to stress.That doesn't mean people with strong will power can't suffer from it, of course ratio varies, intensity differs and also its magnitude. 
Past many days I have talked to many people who are in look out of ways to relieve themselves from stress. The easy accessible choice is meditation, diversion and avoidance of food, people and situations that stress us out.The question is , is it really feasible to follow these suggestions religiously, as your mind gets tresses of stress curtaining your power to combat it.
I would not suggest you to eat healthy and not to take lot of caffeine, walk, talk, divert or meditate. Not at all. You are already bewildered, can't remain at calm than how would you follow these.So, what's the solution?
Stress junks your thinking mind and increases your emotions of heart burn, overthinking and impulsive attitude. The best way is to cash all these negatives of stress by making them positive. Hmmmm! I can sense line of doubt on your temple and mode of interrogation and inquiry. How a devil can be an angel? Right?  In the following  passage I am going to share the tact of making devil of outcomes of stress  in angel of combating it.
When we are stressed first sign is over thinking. Over thinking is good ,use it as stress reliever pill. Keep thinking about the thing troubling you till you go saturated and exhausted and finally want to have a sound sleep. Sleep keeps us away from having negative thoughts. Make sure you sleep in peaceful room where you don't have the noise or disturbance of any sort.
Sleeplessness is another problem of stress. Even after exerting yourself mentally you won't feel like sleeping start physical exertion.....not which is constructive for you like cooking, cleaning your wardrobe, dusting, mopping and for that matter even washing clothes . It will not only occupy you in things easy to do but will give you space for yourself to keep yourself away from disinterestedness which is one of the aftereffects of stress.
Become a chatter box, stay close to people you trust and socialise with like minded people.Talking about your problem will find you some solution as you are not in a state who can think wise. Trustworthy people are not only all ears to your problems but they offer solace to you. Their aura helps you combat stress.
Eat what you like. All of us our sensitized people , we know what to consume and how to consume in balanced way even if we are ailing. Isn't it? Pamper yourself with things that delights you. Buy yourself new attire, cosmetic, wallet or anything you want. Budgeting comes automatic when you are stressed.
Don't stay alone ever. It makes you feel segregated and different than rest of the people. Don't avoid a laughter rather arrange for something which is comical, funny and even absurd. How about cartoon watching or reading Tin Tin cartoon magazine . Yes, reading doesn't limits you with your age and knowledge. You can read anything anytime. Moreover these types of things don't require focus and concentration.
Above all, don't let your foggy mind dominate your rational mind as than only you'll be able to do all these things. Must be thinking that its not in control, but trust me during stress we have everything under our control because we are dedicating our whole thought process to one problem only.All we have to remember is " This is the time to take best out of the situation". 
You never know after the phase of stress you discover or invent something which gets you recognition and stress free life.

People May Come People May Go
 While reading the poem " Brook" by Robert Frost, the refrain " Men may come men may go,I'll go on forever", caught my subconscious instinct to relate it to the world around me. There the pen in my hand started flowing with the world of expressions in my mind.
We meet different people in different guises in our lives. Some come as friends forever, some as soul mates, some as passers by, some as acquaintance and some who can't be named or defined. Have you ever pondered what their presence mean in our life? 
Every person who gives a long or short visit in our life has something to teach us, no matter it is diabolic side of their personality.
Seize the time of warm relations, as they are hard to find. We blindfold ourselves to some people's compassionate nature as we take them for granted. We find them easily available to all our odds and emerge as walking stick during our handicap and to sustain in time of crucial hours. Back of our mind we box them for not to open.Our ignorance settles dust around these boxes which we never try to clean or even explore. Those who come as temptations in the form of money, glamour and pretensions occupy our energies. Alas! We let the diamond slip by and treasure coal.
Most of us under power and pelf's shine tend to be under the spell of dubious presence around us, forgetting there are some who pray for us, bless us and think good for our well being constantly. Important is not to box out these people but important is not to box them at all otherwise we'll dwell in the phase of not recognizing the worth of these people who are rare species. Such people are highly emotional and sentimental, sensitive and affectionate and any injuries or damage to their dignity closes the doors of their being in your life again.
Its high time we expand our treasure of such people as others are easy come in our lives and unwelcome too but good people are not uninvited guests. They love their dignity and above all have high esteem.
 People may come and people may go but remember what they do for you remains perennial.
