And promise me

Braver than you believe, and
Stronger than you seem, and
Smarter than you think.”

Everything Happens For A Reason

Its up to you how you learn from the experience…

It takes great learning to understand that all things, events, encounters and circumstances are helpful.

Everything Happens For A Reason~

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they are meant to be there. They serve some sort of purpose like teaching you a lesson or helping you figure out what you want to become. These people can be your roommate, neighbour, professor, long lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger who, when you lock your eyes with his, you know that he will affect your life in some profound way.

Sometimes things happen to you and they may seem horrible, painful, and unfair. But in reflection, you realize that without overcoming that obstacles you will never have realized your potential, strength, will power or heart.

Everything happens for a reason.


Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, great loss and sheer stupidity, occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests-events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. A safe and comfortable but dull life does not give you anything. Your experiences create who you are. You can learn a lot from them.

(Its up to you how you learn from the experience- positively or negatively??)

If someone hurts, betrays or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not because they love you, but because they teach you to love and open your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt before.

  • Make every day count. 
  • Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again. 
  • Talk to people you have never talked to before, and listen to them. 
  • Let yourself fall in love. 
  • Break free and set your sights high. 
  • Hold your head up because you have every right to do so.
  • Tell yourself that you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if don’t, no one else will believe in you. 
  • You can make of your life anything you wish. 
  • Create your own life and then go out and live it.


Make beautiful everything around you.

With love and patience, everything is possible.



The Woman In Your Life

Please appreciate her …..


Tomorrow you may get a working woman, but you should marry her with these facts as well.

Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are–

Who is earning almost as much as you do.

One who has dreams and aspirations just as you have because she is as human as you are–

One who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or your sister haven’t, as she was busy in studies and competing in a system that gives no special concession to girls for their culinary achievements–

Yes, she can drink and dance just as well as you can, but won’t, simply because you won’t like it, even though you say otherwise—

One who can be late from work once in a while when deadlines, just like yours, are to be met—

One who is doing her level best and wants to make this most important relationship in her entire life a grand success, if you just help her some and trust her—

One who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows in your entire house – your unstinted support, your sensitivities and most importantly – your understanding, or love, if you may call it—

But not many understand this……

Please appreciate “HER”
