Life is gambling. Especially with what we think and what happens! Sometimes luck is on our side, but other times it might take away our everything, leaving us shattered. The best way to lead life is to do settlement. Planning yes is required. But we should not be harsh on ourselves. It’s difficult to take this journey alone. So, we have different companions in different phases of our lives, guiding us in the right direction. They can be our parents, relatives, friends, life partner, siblings, children, and so on.

But among all of these, who is the best companion for us? It’s us. If we don’t love and trust ourselves, rest no one else can help us. I agree we cannot lead this life alone. Yes, we do need a partner. But no one can help us until we don’t help and support ourselves.

First, we should stand for ourselves rather than expect others to become our partners on this journey.

So, surround yourself with positivity. Think positively, read positive books, see motivational movies. Stay away from destructive things. Help yourself to grow and see the success for yourself.

A Small Incident that Became Our Routine


Posted in Cafes N Cities A premium Lifestyle magazine: https://cafesncities.com/nostalgia-a-way-of-gratitude/

It was just like any other day. Nothing special or planned! Day was going ‘ON’ at its normal pace. However, all of sudden my husband offered to take us out on a long drive. Me and my little angel readily agreed! It hardly took us 30 mins to get ready and we were on wheels! Cold breeze and lovely gathering of clouds in the sky were complimenting us for the drive. We almost drove for 100 kms with a single stopover for ice-cream and coffee for ourselves. Just then while sitting on the bench on the lake side watching the huge mountains, I saw my daughter innocently licking her ice-cream.

She was looking so adorable that I couldn’t take my eyes off her! 

Realizing that getting busy with our daily chores how at times we become ungrateful for forgetting that happiness lies in the small things in our day to day life! How often do we take time out to be grateful and live just in the moment appreciating all that we have rather than complaining about all that we want, desire or hunt for…?

Few moments of silence and not knowing what happened to me, I started to tease her and play around with her. I was cuddling her, making her laugh her heart out. She hugged me and started jumping out of excitement. The innocence in her smile, crispiness in her voice was making the day more beautiful. Making me feel blessed and grateful for all that I have in life.

As soon as she was done with her ice-cream, I took her to a nearby pleasantry shop and asked her to get something for her.

She started to pick up all sorts of colourful toys, filling them up in her little hands and tiny pockets! I couldn’t stop laughing. Just then she found an ‘ELSA TUSUM DOLL’ and threw the rest of everything away! I took that doll in hand, made it a puppet and started teasing her, calling her name in a blabbering tune…. “We got one more pet name for her! Our secret.”  Our conservations started with that doll making her a puppet, taking her to a fairyland that got converted into a story…

Not realizing that almost 20 mins had passed, we were busy playing like this. People have stopped and gathered around enjoying our ‘Doll Puppet Show’. That was the most unforgettable minutes wherein we had forgotten everything else, especially me! I was just in that moment with her! I came back to present with the sound of applause around me. Feeling embarrassed at the same time, glad, I got up, smiling to everyone, took her in my arms and went to the counter. Happily, purchased the ELSA DOLL and left.

It has been a couple of years now, my little angel from single digit has grown to double digit with her age, still our puppet shows in the morning and odd times in the day to play around with the tiny little doll is ‘ON’ making us both forget our actual AGE.
