I think a lot,
But seldom write.
I feel incapable of writing.
My thoughts get crystallized
In my mind and refuses
To flow through my pen.
Frozen out of fear.
Knowing that with each word I pen,
I am one step closer to realizing,
That I am ORDINARY.

I am Nayana Nair. I'm 28. Just a person who has tons of things to talk about....not much organized thoughts sadly.
I'm interested in all forms of storytelling (though I don't have the talent for it). So I like series, movies, novels, anime, and whatnot. I'm also really passionate about music, psychology, learning languages (I just dream big, too undisciplined to makes any actual progress) and literature. I am overall just a curious person who is interested in all kinds of things, as long as they suit my taste.
I always wanted to be a writer (and also a teacher)..But I don't think I have the skills required...this blog is just my attempt at becoming the writer I always wanted to be...Blogging for few years, I have realized I am more of a poet (although, I am not sure that I am good enough for that label)...I hope I realize more about myself through writing.
Thanks for dropping by!! Hope I didn't disappoint. :)

I thought you might enjoy this:
Make the Ordinary Come Alive
Do not ask your children,
To strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is a way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.
Its lovely 🙂 Ordinary is not something to lament upon I guess :). Thanks 🙂
May you see how beautiful being ordinary is – maybe that will free your pen…:)
Thank you :)…I hope that too 🙂
The great fear of writers!
And I was thinking I am the only one stuck with this feeling 🙂
Ohhh no 🙂
