Giving myself away


I sometimes wonder
if I give myself away
with each note that I write here

All my vulnerabilities exposed
the weaknesess out there in in the open
my thoughts shared with everyone

The silly moments that I don’t hide
the quirks that I have let known
the vague and strange parts in me

The kind of life that I live
my joys and my sorrows
I string them all into necklaces of words here

Then today I got thinking about this “giving myself away”
maybe it’s all therapeutic for me
I shed a lot of weight from the mind and soul

When I am eighty and hopefully wise
I can look back and smile at a younger me
and say, “Well done, not too many things left unsaid.”

I am Sapna Dhyani. I write about everything that crosses my mind. I write about life as I see it and like to infuse humour into my blogs. I belong to Dehradun but now live in a new city after every two years, being an army wife. This uprooting of base every couple of years, setting up a new home in a new place, meeting new people and forging new friendships, exploring new cities; all this ensures that I go through and am blessed with a myriad of experiences.

  1. Sukh badh jaata , dukh ghat jaata jab wah hai bant jaata ” It’s undoubtedly wise to share your joys and sorrows with others , more so when it is done with such honesty . By ” giving myself away ” you bring many friends even closer to you . Isn’t that a reward in itself ?
