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.”

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.

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.

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.

SIMPLE JOYS:THE SMELL OF EARTH AFTER THE RAIN

THE SMELL OF EARTH AFTER THE RAIN…………….

The word is-DIVINE-for how the earth smells after the rain.After all the weariness and dust of the earth has been washed away to unveil that priceless,picture-perfect face of the earth and the beauty it holds.The clear skies,the wet grounds,the trees swaying gently with the rhythm of the soft breeze,the fresh smell of the soil,it’s all out of the world.Everybody loves this weather,it’s such a happy sight.How the rain washes away the  effects of the scorching summer heat and brings with it such feeling of unmatched joy to people is splendid.

English: Rain drops on fresh leaf
Rain drops on fresh leaf-BEAUTIFUL!!! (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I am addicted with the smell of the soil drenched after the rain,taking in all the aura and feeling all the negative vibes,glum mood and worries disappearing with every breath i take.Taking a walk or going for a drive in that weather,sipping hot coffee and chatting up sweet nothings, Listening to my favorite songs while admiring the beauty all around,watching kids jumping and playing happily around,seeing the trees more greener,the flowers more brighter,the skies most beautiful hue of blue,the freshness all around like a new day on its own…Could life be any better?

It brings with it smiles that are drawn upon people’s faces without any superficial charms.I believe that in spite of all the differences in personalities,choices,thoughts and lives that we-the people have,there are some things that please us,bring moments of happiness to all of us in the same way and this-is one of them.

It is one of those times,which always inspires that hidden writer in me ready to share my thoughts with the world,always gives me more reasons to appreciate this life,always fuels those happy feelings in me,always makes me wonder how beautiful these small things in life are.

Ah!The simple joys in life.

Keep smiling.Keep Living.

Life is like a plain paper-You have the palette in your hand to color it in any hue,any shade and any shape you wish.

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL….

It’s not just a vain philosophy aided by some unrealistic ideas and false hopes.It’s not just a phrase told by somebody extremely happy or content.It’s not just a word of somebody who lives in a different world or time.It is not just an idea or a myth,but it is that beautiful truth we have not yet fully acknowledged and realized.

The beauty of life is that you get to decide which way it goes,what path it chooses and what horizons it reaches.Even in moments where you cannot decide or control,you can understand and have the clarity of things you want and things you don’t-in your life.

We cannot be happy all the time,We cannot be right all the time.Even the most beautiful flowers fade and wither after their bloom.But we can learn from our mistakes,we can cry in our sorrows and then,we can move on.We can make our life better,it’s a constant process.

So many times,we make mistakes in choosing the right kind of people in our lives.We fall in bad company,get affected by de motivational people,become a victim of politics,get our hearts broken.But with time,we grow,we realise,we make amends,we grow conscious and we become more capable of making better choices and less mistakes.And it’s all us and the decisions we make,We have the capability of shaping the directions of our lives.

You have one life,make it better.You have the memories and the lessons from your past,you have the beauty and wellness of your present and you have the hopes and the promises of tommorow.Keep up that undying spirit of living in each moment of your life and you will have your own heaven in front of you.

Life’s precious.You get it once,make it Worth-while.

Happy Living.

4 weeks-1000+ views…Is it a good thing?Is it a good progress?Average?Below-Average?I have no idea ,I am no good at mathematical inaccuracies and analysis , i have no theory,a deduction or a feeling about this except one-that I AM HAPPY!!!!!

Smile.
Yippeee!!Yayee!!  (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Ah!The small joys of life.Why should i really search for  reasons to be happy when happiness is all around me,when happiness comes to me telling me My Dear Blog is a month old now!!!It’s not a big deal at all-i know it very well,but it is a little personal achievement that i couldn’t keep to myself-just had to share.

When i started this blog,all i wanted was to just express all the innumerable thoughts running in my mind all the time.It was just Me-and my feelings,my opinions!!!But with time,i realised it’s not just about me-It’s not just about me at all.It’s about people-it’s all about people.I realised how happy i felt when someone read my blog and appreciated it,when people told me i could be better,when people started following my blog-To me,it was not about the feeling of being recognized in some way but about that precious feeling of knowing that SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE OUT THERE IS LISTENING.

Reading what i feel,what i see,what i learn,what i wish,maybe i made a little difference to somebody,maybe i gave somebody a hope..I realized a different kind of happiness that i took so long to discover-my love for writing never got this passionate.I absolutely love this!!!!!

Isn’t this whole blogging world all about-sharing thoughts?Reaching towards people and having them reach you-through your words?It’s such a happy feeling-it’s like having that friend you can turn to at any moment of day or night.This is like a job which pays you back for doing something you love the most in the world.And i am Happy!!!

I am happy that 1000 times somebody,somewhere has gone through my words and formed an opinion-no matter what it may be.

I am happy that 1000 times i have been able to SHARE what i feel and what i want others to know and maybe feel themselves-if they wish.

I am happy that 1000 times i have been able to reach out to someone out there.

It’s like a little victory of my own,it’s not about stats  and comparisons with other people,but the joy of having reached a goal i set,it’s pure bliss .Just saying that- I am extremely happy and incredibly thankful for everybody on giving me my very first 1000 views.

Happy Living!!

“You can win”

You probably have heard this one somewhere before.You have heard it because it is the TRUTH.The only thing is that some of us haven’t yet realized what we really are capable of.

Sometimes,we hold back from some things because we find it too hard to do and are afraid of loosing.But by doing so,we are limiting ourselves from reaching new heights.Even if we had failed/lost,we could have had the satisfaction of at least trying it and knowing our weaknesses.

But,think once.Why restrict ourselves?Why not take a leap just because we are afraid of falling?While we still have the time,why restrain ourselves from fulfilling all our dreams today?

YOU CAN WIN.Take the first step.If you are willing to achieve a goal,give it your heart and soul .Success will follow.Plan your course of action,manage your time and take the leap.You can win and you will WIN.The winner in you just needs the determination and hard work.You are born a winner and you are destined to WIN.

Don’t be afraid of the consequences and never underestimate yourself.You can do anything you wish to.Start living to the fullest everyday.

Happy living.xoxo.
