DO YOU HAVE A "FAMILY TIME" IN YOUR SCHEDULE?

Image
This is the story of a happy but sad couple. Happy because there was no dearth of money. Sad because there was dearth of communication. The husband, always being over-loaded with work never had the time for his wife, who was suffering from a serious disease. Every day she longed to share a good time with him but, that never happened. Once a week, to compensate for his absence, he used to give expensive gifts to her and that's it! Soon, the wife was living her last days. She still hoped and waited but, still her partner was busy in bringing home the bacon which seemed more important to him. He did not realise what his wife actually wanted was his TIME and his PRESENCE not his gifts which were lying unopened! Now when she is no more, he regrets not spending time with her and lend a listening ear to all those thoughts and feelings that she wanted to share.

Do you find this story relatable? We have so busy schedules that we find it difficult to fit "family time" in it. In o…

LITTLE STEPS

We all have ambitious dreams of living life in a comfortable way. Just sitting on a couch, eagerly waiting for THE DAY. But, Ouch! Without struggles, without pain, you won't reach the top of the mountain.
Life is all about taking little steps. Each step brings you closer and your goals become clearer. The journey is not easy but rough, having twists and turns. One has to be tough.
You will rise, you will stumble and you will fall but, don't you get scared. It is your call, whether you just want to stare at the mountain top, building castles in the air. Or you want to make efforts and change your mentality to transform your dreams into a reality!

FOCUS ON THE PRESENT TENSE

" 'Today' is that precious gift that you either get from Him, or it just means that you have already lived your last day. Not everyone who went to sleep last night woke up this morning. The very fact you did, some force above still thinks you are worthy of another 'Today'. Recognise the heart of the divine behind this 24-hour material. Know, 'Today' is a providential gift. Realise, abusing the gift is abusing the giver. Wasting a day of your life will amount to abusing the giver of this gift. Only when you know the value of a gift, you will value the gift. Value 'Today' and make it valuable."

God showers his blessings on us by adding a day to our lives. Each day is his blessing in disguise. It is his gift to us.But, what do you mostly do with this precious gift? You either fret over your past mistakes or you procrastinate as if …

PROCRASTINATION!!

" I will do it tomorrow." He said. Tomorrow came. " I will do it tomorrow." He said again. But, tomorrow never came and his reply remained same, until, he reached his deathbed his eyes all wet his heart full of regret          desperately wishing a retake of his life. But, alas! He didn't have a second chance to add to his life more joy, love and romance.

Procrastination is the biggest obstacle which won't let you reach the pinnacle. What has to be done should be done today because tick, tock, tick ,tock, tick, tock strikes the clock In the blink of an eye on your deathbed, you will lie shattered! to have lived your life dull and dry.                                                                                                   - Prachi Agrawal

THE POWER OF YOUR MIND

Yesterday, I found The Secret, written by Rhonda Byrne and I just happen to read that book, though it was lying in my shelf for quiet some time. As I flipped through the pages, I was completely blown away and could not resist myself to share the mind boggling idea with you all. There might be many people who are already acquainted with this Secret, but there are few who still don't know it.So, read on if you want to change your life!

 The Secret is the Law of Attraction.This Law introduces us to the power of our thoughts.It says "what you think is what you attract".Whatever is happening in your life is because you have attracted it through your thoughts.If you are thinking negative thoughts, you will face only negativity in life. You will come across more and more negative circumstances in life.If you are thinking positive, it will flow in your life and you will see more positivity around you.You can take charge of your life with your thoughts.You can create your life e…

CLIMB 'TIL YOUR DREAM COMES TRUE

Image
Often your tasks will be many, And more than you think you can do. Often the road will be ruggedAnd the hills insurmountable, too. But always remember, The hills aheadAre never as steep as they seem, And with Faith in your heartStart upwardAnd climb 'til you reach your dream. For nothing in life that is worthyIs ever too hard to achieveIf you have the courage to try it, And you have the faith to believe. For faith is a force that is greaterThan knowledge or power or skill, And many defeats turn to triumphIf you trust in God's wisdom and will. For faith is a mover of mountains, There's nothing that God cannot do, So, start out today with faith in your heart, And climb 'til your dream comes true!

THE POWER OF 'NO'

Image
When i was in my last year of school, i was highly tenacious about my goal- to get a stupendous score. But, there were so many distractions in the form of people. They all were party people and liked hanging out, just whiling away their time.But,i marched on a different drumbeat. I liked devoting my entire time to studies.Maybe, i was over meticulous about my goal but, that's how i was. And so, there were times when i was invited to join these gatherings almost everyday. It was very hard for me to say 'yes', as it would distract me but, saying 'no' was even more difficult as my friends were already cheesed-off with my behavior.I used to be between devil and deep sea. At those times, i asked myself a question repeatedly- was pleasing my friends more imperative for me than chasing my goal? Each time, my heart and my mind were against each other.But,i was gutsy enough to listen what my heart was saying- 'NO'.


For your life, nothing is more important than your…

DON'T QUIT

When things go wrong, As they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and debts are high, And you want to smile,but you have to sign, When care is pressing you down a bit-Rest if you  must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out. Don't give up though the pace seems slow- You may  succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out- The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit. It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.                                                                        - Anonymous

READ BOOKS..!!

Image
A new trend is settling in our society in which building a social image has become more important than building the reservoir of knowledge.People are not content unless they are socially accepted.
And in the quest of becoming so called "social", they show false image of themselves to the society. Texting back to a friend,uploading latest pictures on social media or updating their status seems to be more imperative than to read and learn.A book seems to be more heavy to carry than a mobile.They always look for admirers, they always want approval from people, unaware of the fact that their knowledge is becoming obsolete.They want to be accepted by everybody and don't want to be criticised even by one. Such people of low self-esteem end up having nothing in their heads, and are totally dumb. They are always lamented, not satisfied with their lives.
Read deep books because they have the power to lift you up and to change your perspective towards life. They sometimes act as …
