The Promise!!!

On the very first day of 2019, I posted a New Year wish post on this blog. I asked anyone who'd find it interesting to make a New Year resolution and keep track of it throughout the year. I also promised that I’d share my experience on this topic too. So here is my journey…
What forgiveness and letting go taught me… My New Year resolution story 

“Forgive and let go… and we’ll see what happens,” I said to myself. I was having a not so-comfortable-eh friendship with one of my friends. I really needed to step out of it but I had always been held back. Either by her or by myself. But last year, I finally did it.
We all have to do it sometimes, in different times of our lives, in unexpected times of our lives. If you know the relationship is toxic, then let it go. Let go and forgive! Forgive that person for everything they did that made you unhappy and go through bitter experiences and forgive yourself for all the mistakes you did too. BECAUSE, it’s time to move on. Forgiveness makes it …

Happy Vesak Dear All!

මුළු ලොවම අභිබවා නැගෙන ඒ ගුණ කද, ගලාහැලෙනා මහා කරුණාව, සමකල නොහැකි බුද්ධ තේජස! භාග්‍යවත් වූවෙමි ඒ අභියසට යන්නට, සිටියෙමි එහි පුදමින්, මා හදේ කෘතවේදීතාව…
නැගෙයි ඒ ගුණ, නවතනු බැරිය, ගලයි මහා කරුණාව, දැනෙයි එය මා හදට, බබලයි ඒ තේජස, ගෙනෙයි මා හට මහත් වීරිය, බුදු පියාණෙනි, මා පියාණෙනි, වේවා මගේ නමසකාර ඔබ වහන්සේ හට!

2. Learn from how your resolution helps you in such situations and how it develops you and makes a better version of you.

3. In the 31st night of December, you'll have a story to tell the world that everyone wants to hear!

The Lake Isle of Innisfree by W.B. Yeats

Let's discuss the poem.
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made; Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee, And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings; There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in the deep heart’s core.


          The Lake Isle is an island in the middle of the lake called Innisfree located in Ireland. The poet in his poem vividly paints the beauty and the serenity of nature through the lake Innisfree. The poet points out the soothing effect of nature on mankind using different techniques in the poem to touch the readers’ hearts.

The Pigtail by William Makepeace Thackery

Let's discuss this poem.
The Pigtail
        There lived a sage in days of yore, And he a handsome pigtail wore;
              But wondered much and sorrowed more,
                                                             Because it hung behind him.

                                                                  He mused upon this curious case,
                                                                     And swore he'd change the pigtail's place,
                                                               And have it hanging at his face,
                                                               Not dangling there behind him.

                                                                     Says he, "The mystery I've found -
                                                                     Says he, "The mystery I've found!
