SoCS prompt for this week is:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “container.” Use the word “container” any way you’d like. Or think about a container of some kind and write about it. Enjoy!

Aren’t we all Containers?

We have feelings, emotions, goals, expectancy, humour, memories all stuffed in there, in that container.

When there is love, laughter, satisfaction, happiness overflowing, our whole body knows about it. Physically and mentally, we feel good! So good that others too notice. We spread it. We attract positivities. People like to talk to us, to hang around us etc.

When there is hatred, jealousy, insecurities, low self esteem and bitter feelings it’s exactly the opposite. We spread it too. We give way to deterioration in our physical and emotional well being. We ourselves prefer to be alone, sometimes.

The amount of positive and negative energies keep fluctuating within the container in us. Aren’t we all familiar with mood swings?

True friends and family realise this and accept us through these fluctuations and stick around us. Time teaches us, who these are.

Another point is that, there is always place within the container to learn more! Keep looking….

Trying to keep a balance, trying to keep ourselves in good spirits by increasing the good emotions within us, silencing and accepting the negatives in us, overcoming our insecurities is what we need to keep working on to get that inner peace! Peace with self! Peace of mind… that feeling of being in transcendent state.

  1. I wish we fill the container of love more, and fill it with even more love till it’s brim.

    It’s such a positive post and I felt what you said that we spread what we have in our container, like I know your container is full of smiles and love and thus I always like to interact with you because you give me those good vibes through your comments or post or anything maybe..

    And I also agreed to what you said about mood swings, that our family and friends know that we face such time and thus they stick around us anyway.

    Nice post😄

    1. Exactly Rashmi, I’m working on taking out negative vibes I have on a close relative….To see her positives, and not her jealousy and to shower lotssa love. That’s where this post started off.. and it’s pretty tough to do. I very rarely get such thoughts on anybody!! I’m wondering why this is happening now? Is it My age? My harmones? ☺️

      Thank you so much … So sweet of you to say that and really, the feeling is mutual. The kind of warmth you shower on me, It makes me smile even when I’m low. By the way I’m still in hangover of your poem ☺️
