FOR THE PEOPLE IN OUR LIFE-WHO TRULY MATTER!!!!

Every day,we meet a lot of people,but there are only a selected few among the millions of people we stumble upon in our life,who will remain unforgettable and hold a very special place in our hearts no matter what.

In all of our lives,we come across a lot of people who,in some way or the other,are in our hearts and minds-be it the special ones,the very very special ones,the unforgettables,the best ones,the loud ones,the quiet ones,the advisors,the “hello-hi” types,the bad ones,the silly ones,etc.

But whatever may be the kind of relation we share with them,people are one of the most essential part of our lives.

Words won’t be enough to explain what importance they hold,but here are some people,who are the best of them all:

Our FAMILY who have seen us grow ,been with us at all times-good or bad and who forgive us no matter what,the ones who give meaning to “Coming Home”.

That one BEST FRIEND who knows all our secrets,shares all our pains and celebrates all our successes.

That BROTHER who stands by us to protect us from this big bad world.

That SISTER who is our best companion,best critic and best friend,who,If it comes to us against the world, even fights for us.

That TEACHER who pushed us to work harder because s/he saw our potential before we could.

That ROLEMODEL whom we looked upon all the time,who gave us inspiration to be the best we could be.

That FUNNY ONE who always managed to make us smile even at our lowest times.

Those FRIENDS who we shared moments and memories with,those who were always there to quietly mourn at our loss and joyfully celebrate on our gains.

That LOVER who admires you for the person you are ,who gives you love that is larger-than-life and for whom you are the best thing in the world.

Life may be hard at times,but when we have the love and support of people who believe in us,every journey seems a lot easier!!Life is all about the people we have in it-to share the laughs,to cry together,to be there for each other and simply to understand that without these wonderful people,our life would never have been what it is!

HAPPY LIVING!!!!!!

THE GREATEST INSPIRATIONS II:FATHER

Quiet,untold,sometimes merely unexpressed and sometimes hard to define in words-such is the relationship between a father and his child.

The glory of this relationship may not be as much written about,as much sung upon or as much discussed about as a mother-child relationship,but both the parents bestow the best of their love upon their off springs.A father’s role is as equally contributing and important on shaping the future of his child as a mother’s.

A father works hard to secure his child’s future,He returns home tired yet takes out his children to dinners with a smile on his face,He wants his children to have all their whims and wishes fulfilled at their first demand,He spoils his children rotten but still manages to set an example of discipline in the house.

A father’s love may not come with the fancy packaging of flowers,beautified words,out-of-the-world showering of love and affection but it is nonetheless a raw love that is as ready to give any sacrifices for the sake of creating a heaven for his children to live in.

So here is an standing ovation,a dedication and a nod-

“To fathers who cried with joy when they first held their child;

To fathers who teach their children what is right and what is not;

To fathers who encourage their children to rise again after each fall;

To fathers who are role-models for their children;

To fathers who teach their children never to give up;

To fathers who inspire their children to be just like them;

To fathers who believe in their children above all odds;

To fathers who love and never tell;

To fathers who get tired but never frown;

To fathers who work the hardest and never complain;

To fathers whose hopes and determination never grow old;

To fathers ,The best ones in the world.”

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.
The greatest of souls-mother (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“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.

HAD A BAD DAY?TURN IT OVER RIGHT NOW!

“Cause you had a bad day

You’re taking one down

You sing a sad song just to turn it around

You say you don’t know

You tell me don’t lie

You work at a smile and you go for a ride

You had a bad day

You’ve seen what you like

And how does it feel for one more time

You had a bad day

You had a bad day”

-Lyrics from “Bad day” by Alvin & The Chipmunks

So it was one of “those days”…Right from the start of the day everything went wrong,You got late for work,you missed the bus,got stuck in traffic,you had a fight with somebody,your work didn’t get appreciated,etc.etc….it was like some evil had overshadowed your simply cheerful life,As if the world had come crumbling down on you,it was a crazy day when with or without a reason your mood was angry,upset or plain bad….Now what?

You had a bad day doesn’t mean that you can’t lift your mood now.Here are a few things I do when I have a really crazy day.I hope that these will help you end your day happily and you go off to sleep peacefully with a wide grin in your face no matter how bad a day you had.

1.DON’T FAKE IT

If you are feeling bad,you are.There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a bad mood-it happens.The more you try to pretend that there is nothing wrong,the more miserable you feel inside.Don’t fake a smile when all that is in your head is bouts of anger.Instead,try making things better than pretending you are fine.

2.MEET A FRIEND YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IN A WHILE

Sometimes,we get so busy with our life that we don’t realise how long it has been since we met our friends.Meet or talk to a dear friend whom you haven’t spoken to one of these days.The thing with friends is that-they take you as you are and  share your moods too-even if it is mad.

3.TAKE A WALK

If you shrug and sit in a corner,your mood won’t be any better.Take a walk to the nearby park or a spot you like,spend sometime in the evening breeze,listlessly watch people passing by when you stroll on your own….It helps relieve those stressed nerves!

4.WATCH COMEDIES

Tickle your funny bone with a light hearted comedy and laugh out all the stress and mis happenings of the day.Invite friends over or enjoy your own company.It always helps to have a good laugh and when it’s a bad mood..even better!

5.TREAT YOURSELF WITH YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD

Go to your favourite restaurant or food joint and treat yourself your favourite food.For a foodie like me,having  food that I crave is heaven..it is an instant mood lifter.Try it and munch away your bad day.:)

6.LISTEN TO YOUR FAVOURITE TRACKS

They say-Music is  food for the soul.Whatever your taste in music,listening to your favourite numbers and humming or even shouting them along is one great way to turn around those effects of a bad day.

.

7.LET GO

Do whatever makes you feel good,there is no need to go crazy thinking “why does it always happens to me?” .The bad times come,they pass.There will be a new day,a new promise,a new hope tomorrow.Let go!!!

Happy Living.
