The year 2017 has been a mixed bag for me till now. Ups & downs, highs & lows. All that you can imagine jumbled up in few months. Only thing keeping me sane is thinking positive. Every day has been a new learning – both personally & professionally. I guess this is part of life.
To be honest, staying positive does not come very easily. We need to make extra efforts on some days. Even getting out of bed & going to work seems like a burden. That’s how I have felt on few days. But, at the end I know this too shall pass. Maybe someday when I am able to disconnect from current events I will write more about it.
In the coming month I intend to write about all things happy – little bit of travel, food & life. Travelling coupled together with good food can make life impressive. Talking about food reminds me that it’s time for my Alexa ranking to lose some weight. It has gained a lot & current Global Alexa Rank is 11,589,035.
‘I am taking My Alexa rank to the next level with Blogchatter‘ . Time for happy blogging! 🙂
The 11-year old boy Harry Potter living under the staircase of his aunt’s house had gotten a surprise on his birthday. Unknown of his glorious past he had never thought his life would turn around like this. The admission letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was a blessing in disguise.
Who can forget the amazed look on Harry’s face when he reached Platform 9 3/4 for the first time? I am sure all of us had wanted to share the train ride with him. Harry Potter had made my school life interesting & all the free time was spent learning the magical spells.
Harry, Hermione & Ron had set friendship goals for us. With them I realized nothing is impossible if I have my friends with me. They taught us that with true friends you can tackle anything. I had learnt that life is to be lived in small moments & not waiting for the bigger events.
And, how can I miss the lesson of love that Harry Potter taught me. The forever kind of Love…love between friends, love that a professor has for his students, love that Lily had for her son Harry and lastly the love Snape had for Lily.
‘After all this time?’ ‘Always,’
I remember reading Harry Potter even during my board exams preparation leaves. If only we had an exam on this subject! Even today, I can watch the movie or read the novel infinite times. Thanks to Blogchatter for giving me a reason to relive the Potter Mania.
Cheers to 20 more years of love, laughter and friendship! 🙂
Zeal – means to have great energy for a cause. This word reminds me of the enthusiasm of a child. Kids are always open to try new things. They don’t fear things or think too much. That’s the zeal I want in my life too!
The #AtoZChallenge month has been so energetic & I wish to continue blogging with the same spirit. And, I want to have the zeal for all my travel plans. I hope all my plans are successful & add new experience.
Till then, Happy Blogging! And thanks for being part of my world 🙂
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.” – Albert Einstein
Yesterday I was a day younger but today I am wiser. I was working to achieve my goal, but today I have succeeded. I had more friends yesterday, but today I have true friends. The past holds a special place in our hearts, a bond which is unshaken.
There may be a broken heart or broken dream in the past, it has no place in your present. Not all things in past are worth holding on. Let go off the past and look forward to the future. No use crying over it, let bygones be bygones.
I know it sounds easy & is tough to follow, but you have to try. Moving on will bring you more opportunities to experience joy & make memories. Cheers to future! 🙂
Expectations – a strong word & emotion. Expecting from others is a part of life. Whenever someone enters our life, we set few expectations from them. If those are not fulfilled, we go through a chain of painful thoughts.
It’s only human tendency to have expectations from others. But, what to do if people don’t meet your expectations? Do you break away from all such people or give them a chance? Do you try to understand their point of view or ignore their pleas?
Expecting too much puts restrains on the relationship. Remember all your friends who were close to you, but today you have no contact. Each of you were expecting the other to make the first call. But, it never happened. And after years when you meet, there is only awkward silence. Do we need so much formality in our lives?
I am not suggesting you to be the giver all the time. Ofcourse, a relation where only you give 100% but get nothing in return is futile. But just for a moment think, may be you are expecting too much from a wrong person. Not everyone is the same. I have met people who are aloof & do not expect anything from others. Well, this behavior also is harmful and they end up alone.
Let’s try to balance the act of expecting & learn when to stop expecting too much. Maybe the time is not right or the person is not right!
