Defeat πŸ‘Ž

Not a long post, just a little thought heard somewhere, hanging around in my mind..

Win and look around, πŸŽ‰

The world will know what you are..

Lose and look around, πŸ‘€

You will know what the world is..!!

Good decisions come from experience.

Experience comes from bad decisions.

So, don’t get stuck with regrets.. Its your life ❀ Make the best out of it with every experience that comes by your way..!! ☺

Adult-Colouring πŸ–Œ

Adult colouring is nothing but colouring or painting books available for adults with intricate designs.

I did not try this before but once I started doing it, I’m in love with colouring.

After having a long or stressful day, sitting down for 20-30 minutes and colouring the white papers into beautiful colours gives me so much calm and also acts as a stress buster.

The designs are so amazing and few are also complicated depending on the book.

This is one of the amazing pictures from the book escape to wonderland:

And while doing this activity, I really escape from all the chaos of the world and dive into it.

Though we cannot so easily de-clutter everything in life and fill colour in all the empty areas in life, we can do that easily in these books and that gives a kind of metaphorical confidence or assurance to heart. Don’t you think so??

I’m not great at doing this, just decent so if I offend any painting lovers with my work, kindly excuse me!!

But once I start colouring, I can’t wait to fill the entire page and see how beautiful I could turn it into. ( Provided, it is beautiful after I colour it!)

If only life was so easy, but what is life without few challenges and defeats..! After all, they teach us more lessons than victories do.

This book also teaches me so much I feel..

I’m not yet done colouring this page but I can’t wait to. After I finish colouring the entire page except for the rabbit, the rabbit is gonna look so unique even with no colour. Be yourself and eventually, you’ll shine. Because you’re unique!!

So,

If you have similar love towards colouring like me, do let me know. And

In case anyone wants to take up some activity for their pass time which provides some peace of mind, go for it. There are many more amazing books available in the market. One book I would suggest if you’re interested is, the night voyage. πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

I’ve not started colouring this book as I’m not yet done with the previous one, but this image is one of the customer images uploaded by a purchaser on the website-

Aaah… How beautiful the picture looks after he/ she has filled life into it!!

Now you know what the satisfaction of colouring I’m talking about is..!

You can look up to various books available and pick up one which you think is best for you! I advice you to definitely take up this activity if you’re interested in colouring, drawing, painting and if you do, share your beautiful work with us for sure!!

Journey πŸ‘£

Sometimes, the journey is more beautiful than the destination.

Most of us have heard this quotation. But still, I don’t tend to follow this in my life. Do you??

We often focus only on the destination which is a good thing, but in the hassle of reaching our goals, we forget to enjoy the journey which takes us to the destination. πŸ›£

When a person achieves something, it’s not just about what the person has become. The journey he/she has experienced by learning through mistakes, falling down but rising higher, gaining knowledge and also sharing and contributing something, all this together is what has made the person into what they are today.

Also when we speak to someone, especially during an argument, we listen their words only to reply but not to understand. We are quick to reach the destination that is, only to conclude by establishing that our opinion is right.. In that process, we don’t try to understand what the other person’s perspective really is.

Similarly, life is a journey between birth and death.

All of us have some short term and long term goals and battles that we fight everyday. We win some, we learn from some. Let us not just focus and run after the goals but let’s slow down and appreciate how beautiful the journey is!! ❀ Let us learn something from every person we meet. Let us grow with good or bad every situation we face.

In the end, it is all the small things that teach us how to be the groomed person that we become.

A letter to my love..

The day you walked into my life, you made me realise, what true love of a soulmate is!

Love for me, is YOU ❀

You’ve been my support when I need it, my strength when I was weak, my guide when I was confused.

You always listen to me, whatever nonsense I speak when in Stress.

When I made mistakes, you’ve corrected me, forgiven me and gave me love with more passion than ever.

Today, I wanna tell you-

Your life, your feelings, your happiness matter to me the most and your cute little smiles make me more than happy. πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜„

True love is difficult to find and

I’m sooooooooo lucky to have found you, my love.

Now that I found you, I want you to know, I’ll never let you down and I’ll never let you regret your decision of making me a part of your life. Because,

You are a part of my soul. ❀

Your smile makes me happy in a way nothing else can and I’ll try beyond what I can to be the greatest reason behind that beautiful smile 😍

I cannot promise you that with me beside, you’ll not have problems in life or that we will always have good and smiling days only.

But I promise, you’ll never have to face any of them alone, dear. We will go through pain and problems together, you’ll never have to walk alone.

My life without you, is incomplete. You complete my life, my happiness, my sorrows and my soul.

My name is cute, but it feels cuter with your name attatched to itπŸ˜‰

Will you marry me??? πŸ’

-To my toofan ❀ (that’s a name I call him by).

Mirror

Flash fiction challenge

She looked at the mirror and smiled,

She smiled as she saw the scars and reminisced her past-

How she became victim of an acid attack and the world turned upside down within few seconds. The scars she saw in the mirror reminded her of something,

She laughed at the real scars on the minds of people who often judge the victims and traumatize them even more.

Looking at the beautiful woman in the mirror, She left the metaphorical chains behind and walked away with smile like the world was her ramp, while the world remained awe-struck at her victory.❀

Liebster award (Again??)

Yes!! I’ve been nominated again for the liebster award and guess what the fun part is..

Eseness has nominated me to answer the questions which I put up in the previous liebster challenge for the persons I nominated. Sounds fun, right??

Here’s a link to her lovely post in case you wanna take a look!

http://www.eseness.com/all-smileys-the-liebster-award/

Since it is the second time and I’m new at wordpress, I am still on my way to discover many amazing blogs. I may not be able to nominate another 11 bloggers for this award.

I’m going to answer all the questions though..

Let’s begin-

1.WHO IS THE CLOSEST PERSON TO YOU IN YOUR FAMILY?

My sister.. she is the one whom I share everything with!!

But people have a hard time believing that we are siblings since we look totally different!

Spending some time with her can cheer me up at any given point of time and lighten my heart ❀

2. EARLY BIRD OR NIGHT OWL, WHAT ARE YOU?

Night owl, hands down..

I know that one should wake up early in the morning but.. I’m still struggling to inculcate this habit.

I cannot wake up early. πŸ˜•

3. IF YOU HAVE TO REVEAL A FUNNY MEMORY FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD OR YOUR LIFE TILL NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE??

Well.. That would be really embarrasing but still I’m gonna share one out of many stories today..

Once it happened that an uncle of mine visited my house when I was 5 years old. My native language is not english so back then, I had just begun learning how to speak and write in english.

My uncle was excited to know how progressive I had been in learning a new language and so, he asked me to speak few lines in english.

There comes my brilliant question for which my uncle laughs even today after so many years-

In my native language I asked him:

In which letters should I speak uncle, BLOCK LETTERS or small ones?? πŸ€”

Today when I reminisce I realise how brilliantly stupid I was!! But I was a little kid… πŸ™‡β€β™€οΈ

So yeah, that was one of the funniest moments of my childhood.

Dogs! I love playing with dogs. Given a chance, I can play hours together with them and just melt the time away. 🐢

7. WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE CELEBRITY AND WHY DO YOU LIKE THEM?

I love anushka shetty…

She is an actress of my country. I love her for her beautiful smile. I’m amazed at how well she potrays many fierce roles in movies and then how simple and sweet she is in her real life, as if it is another person!

I’m awestruck at her versatility and I really admire her.

Let’s begin with the lovely questions put forth by crushed caramel.

1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TYPE OF CANDY OR SWEETIE?

I love Gulab jamun and kaju barfi/katli. πŸ˜‹

(In case you are wondering what these strange names are, I’m from India and these are the names of 2 sweets of our country).

Yummyyy… Okay, moving on..

2. WHO OR WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START A BLOG SITE?

Basically, I’m an introvert kind of a person so I usually don’t express what I feel to anyone. Blogging has helped me to express my thoughts and share my ideas to many people even whom I do not know personally. This very idea inspired me to start blogging.

3. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN BULLIED?

No 😊 By god’s grace i haven’t been in such situations till now.

4. WHICH IS THE BEST WAY TO TRAVEL – BOAT, PLANE, WHEELS? WHERE WOULD YOU GO?

The best way to travel for me is by boat, definitely. Ofcourse not so long that you get travel sick. For short distances i believe a boat is best way to enjoy the water crushing under the boat and pushing it forward, the scenery of beautiful nature and most importantly a way to be away from pollution.

Where would I go? πŸ€” Umm.. may be any place where I could be peaceful away from all the chaos of life. Can’t think of one right now.

5. HOW DO YOU VIEW PEOPLE WHO CHEAT IN MONOPOLY?

I did not understand the question at first but after little bit of effort I came to know that monopoly is a game. That is what you were talking about I guess! If not, kindly excuse me. Since I do not know much about this game, I choose to skip answering this question.

6. DO YOU PREFER POEMS THAT RHYME?

Well.. depends. Some poems are beautiful when they rhyme but some need to be presented in a different pattern. I enjoy both the kinds as long as they convey a beautiful meaning.

8. FANCY DRESS PARTIES – WHAT HAVE YOU DRESSED UP AS?

As a doctor, a grocery seller, a former leader of my country, many. (All of this was when i was a kid, so I remember only few).

9. WHICH SONGS WOULD YOU SING IN THE SHOWER WHEN YOU THINK NOBODY CAN HEAR?

Any song which I think I cannot sing with people around, else they would get scared and flee. πŸ˜…

My voice normally does not sound good with songs other than love songs and sad ones. So, I’ll take up the great opportunity to sing songs other than these 2 kinds.

10. IS ANYONE ELSE IN YOUR FAMILY A BLOGGER OR VLOGGER?

No, I’m the only one in my family with this passion.

11. DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE MAGIC BIN FAIRY (WHO COMES IN THE NIGHT AND EMPTIES YOUR BINS MIRACULOUSLY WHILE YOU ARE SLEEPING AND WIPES ALL THE SPILLS ON THE BIN AND ON THE WALLS AND FLOOR AROUND IT)??? OR ARE THERE MEMBERS OF YOUR HOUSE-HOLD WHO BELIEVE IN THE MAGIC BIN FAIRY?

No, neither I nor my family members believe in the magic bin fairy. I am the one who does the cleaning duty in my house though!!

DONE!! I hope i did a decent job in answering them.

Here are my questions..

1. WHO IS THE CLOSEST PERSON TO YOU IN YOUR FAMILY?

2. EARLY BIRD OR NIGHT OWL, WHAT ARE YOU?

3. IF YOU HAVE TO REVEAL A FUNNY MEMORY FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD OR YOUR LIFE TILL NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE??

4. WHICH IS THE POST THAT YOU LIKE THE MOST AMONGST YOUR WRITINGS? SHARE A LINK TO THAT POST.
