Disappear Always

It is a competitive world we live in,Everyone of us trying to outdo,outperform and outlive other people all the time.It’s a constant race we are into,sometimes for the same things and sometimes not.

What is the purpose behind it all?Maybe it’s because-We all want a better life ,a better lifestyle and a better state of mind that comes with it.

And to fulfill our ambitions,to “win” the race and to “outlive” others,We take up the jobs that pay the best,We study those subjects which have the highest “market value,We do what we are “expected” and “supposed” to do,We work hard for a “secure future”,We do what we “need” to do for living a “life of our dreams”.We thrive for”success”.

However,We must not forget that we live only once,WE HAVE ONLY “ONE” LIFE TO DO ALL THAT WE DESIRE AND GET ALL THAT WE SEEK.

So many people spend their lives bringing together the means to lead a better life,to have a better “future’ ,only to realize too late that they gave up so many of their TODAYs and NOWs for a future that nobody can foresee.So many people regret not having enough faith on their own capabilities and having lived a life incomplete and inadequate.

Why give up what you love just because it is not “marketable”?If you are good at something,that thing is good enough to be pursued,That thing is good enough to make you happy or even pay you back.Doing what you love gives you that additional emotional satisfaction that no best-paying job can give if it’s not what you are passionate about.

If  you do what you love,you do it with your heart and soul,you give it the key to success,that fire which fuels your performance-PASSION.If you are passionate about your work,you excel at it,YOU GIVE IT YOUR BEST-ALL BECAUSE YOU LOVE DOING IT AND THE BEST KIND OF SUCCESS COMES WITH DOING WHAT YOU LOVE.

There is scope,opportunity,chance AND  a promising success in each and everything-You just need to have that courage to listen to that inner voice,to follow the path led by your heart even if it is a road less traveled.You need to believe in yourself because if you are not 100% sure about your own potential,don’t expect the world to recognize your worth.

The road to success may be a difficult one,but once you let go of your own inhibitions,the war is half won.

As the old wise saying goes-“Where there is will,there is a way” 

Do what you love,Follow your Heart.You live only once-make it worth living for!!!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS? THINK TWICE!!!

As humans,we have a natural tendency and almost a habit of sub-consciously judging people based on their physical appearance, demeanor, way of talking,choice of music,etc.The judgement being based on one or maybe everything that is visible to the eyes and reaches the brain.

But the truth is-There is more than that meets the eye.It takes more than just a mere first impression to know about somebody and form a just opinion thereon about their nature.

Many times,we come forward situations that make us realize that first impressions often get us mistaken.We may now be best friends with someone who seemed too unfriendly,grumpy or cold in the first instance.We may have found ourselves falling in love with somebody whom we found utterly arrogant,self-obsessed,”too loud” or “too plain” for our liking in the beginning.

We tend to make our own assumptions and conclusions about the nature,lifestyle and even the background of a person at the first instance based on material things like the kind and brand of clothes they have worn,the accent in which they speak,the pitch and tone of their voices,their physical features and a million other things .And this phenomena, as we all know is  called”STEREOTYPING

However,we can’t ignore the fact that one cannot look into a person’s soul and feel the purity of their hearts the moment they see someone.It is indeed true that,it is the first impression that makes an impact,it is the first impression that makes us realize whether we want to know somebody more or not.

But the point is,WHY SHOULD WE JUDGE ANYBODY,ANYWAY?

Why can’t we simply have a mere opinion and not a decision?

Stereotyping or making a fixed opinion about someone based on one thing or the other,is consciously or unconsciously done by almost everyone.It’s in our nature,It is a part of our life,It is something we just can’t seem to take out of our systems.We just can’t seem to help it.

In my opinion,first impression is ADEQUATE,but not enough.For making a judgement about somebody,if you have to,at least take a second impression,or maybe  a third!!There is no need to close the doors of your heart to someone just because theirs was not a good first impression-who knows you might have just missed one more person who could have been a beautiful addition to the list of people who you love.So next time you have a lingering first impression about somebody-Good or Bad-THINK TWICE.

Happy Living.

It would be stupid and downright false to say that life is simple,happy,rosy and uncomplicated all the time.We all have our”low” moments and our” bad days”.

There are times when i am down in the doldrums,feeling like life has been playing its’ bad tricks on me again,when everything feels like a twisted tale where you don’t know what is going to happen next,when every single thing feels like a conspiracy to bring me down,those times when everything surrounding me is just sad and colorless!

But one thing that i have always learnt is that  these “bad times” never last forever.Going by the same philosophy,we could say  that good times don’t last forever too but hey! that’s life,right? Sometimes full of happiness and sometimes painful and hurting.

In those moments of unexplainable emotions,with the sole presence or a mixture of anger,sorrow,frustation,sadness and confusion,when i can’t find any reason to convince myself that it’s nothing but a bad time and try to search some thread to hold on to and get out of my misery,The only thing that somehow consoles me is believing that it will get over,that when i wake up the next morning,there will be a new hope,new promise and new oppurtunities to look forward to with a brand new day.

All that i am trying to say is The bad will get over,and this is such a simple but strong truth we live with.

And anyway,we will always be cautious the next time if we have fallen,we will work harder if we have failed,we will run faster if we have been left behind in the race.Life brings with it so many reasons to  learn,even from the worst of times we may have.

Here are some inspiring lines –

“Makes me that much stronger

Makes me work a little bit harder

It makes me that much wiser

So thanks for making me a fighter

Made me learn a little bit faster

Made my skin a little bit thicker

Makes me that much smarter

So thanks for making me a fighter”

-From the song “Fighter” by Christina Augeliria.

Happy living.


There are two kinds of people in our life-those who love and care for us and those who we wish would love and care for us.

The irony of our lives is that- we spend so much time in waiting,expecting and wanting the love of other people while  forgetting  to notice,appreciate and cherish the people whose love we already own.

We waste our times trying to impress some people while ignoring the ones to whom no pretense is required to win us their love.

We wait forever to be loved back while the love we already have remains unnoticed.

The people who love you from their heart and soul are those who want you to be happy- no matter what!!They are those who love you for what you are,know your every highs and lows and accept you without any judgements in your every mood,every appearance and every emotion.

Don’t let these amazing people drift away from your life.Respect their love and treasure their presence in your life.Don’t take those people who love you for granted,because no matter how deep and forgiving their love is ,they are going to be hurt by your indifference at some point of time.

And love keeps knocking at our doors,waiting for us to open our hearts and feel all that it owns. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Don’t ever let yourself loose love of the people who are genuine and true because in the end, it will be your loss anyway-it will be a moment of happiness taken away from your own time,a page torn away from the book of your own life.

So give back the love you receive,share the smile you have,embrace love as it comes to you,don’t let the best ones in your life go away from you.Life is too short to leave it devoid of happiness and love.

“What good are treasures,riches,diamonds and gold?

when you have no shoulders to lean on and hands to hold?

Don’t let life pass by you without giving you the love you deserve,

The people who love you for who you are the treasures you’ve  got to preserve.”

Happy Living.

A MOTHER’S LOVE….

A mother holds up her child.

“Love that i see in your eyes,i can never find anywhere else,

Mother,I owe you the world and the life i live!!!”

In the entire maze of different relationships we share,discover and treasure in our lives-of  being friends,family,lovers,colleagues,acquaintances,relatives and a lot others,there is one which undoubtedly is of the highest virtue and deserves to be placed above all.The relationship being the one we share with our mother.

If there is anything that can best define what “Unconditional Love’ is-it is a mother’s love.It has no conditions attached to it.None of her deeds,her love,her upbringing,her gestures are selfish,they have no self-centered motive.All that love she gives is what she selflessly pours out from that heart of gold.For a mother,there are no conditions,no limitations and no barriers as to love she bestows upon her child.

Who else but a mother will stay awake all night just to see that her child sleeps in peace,Who else but a mother will  go  without food just to make sure that her children are fed well,Who else but a mother will put on a smile on her face no matter what her mood is just because she wants her children to feel alright,Who else but a mother will be there at any time of day or night ready to answer at a single utterance of her name?

A mother finds pride in her children s’ successes, rejoices in her children s’ happiness and lives her whole life making it sure that her children live the best life while she does her best to make it happen.Her glory is beyond description,words can never be enough to completely describe what purity the soul of a mother holds.

A mother will be a tigress to protect her child,a philosopher to lead her child to the right way,a bridge to connect her child to the world,a shade to rest when her child is tired,a storyteller to make her child go to sleep happily,a shoulder to cry upon when her child is hurt.She is a light that burns but spreads warmth and spark to the lives it touches.She is that favorite place you can return to anytime to pour your heart out,Somebody who will always listen,always care.

We may all listen to tales about great people and read books of the best achievers in this world but never will we be  more  inspired than looking back into the person,the shadow of god herself,the epitome of love that our mother is.The greatest source of inspiration is the most wonderful woman in our life-MOTHER.

Happy Living.

Endless love

I hope this day lasts forever,

With you by my side,i shall fall oh never.  

I could live in this moment for eternity,

I have found myself happy like i never could be.

Walking with you ,sharing the same roads and the sky,

I don’t want this time to ever pass me by.

I hope this day lasts forever,

With every moment spent,i want us to be more together.

All this  happiness feels more than i can hold,

All that i feel for you,by words they can never be told.

With you I know no pain,all the worries in life have disappeared,

All those dark  and gray clouds  have now been cleared.

Life was good,you came and made it better,

I hope this day lasts forever….

My little piece dedicated to all those in love and beyond!!!!

Love completes the world…

Happy Loving.Happy Living.

xoxo.
