Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are beautiful but because they are fleeting – Richard Paul Evans
“We are all born with a divine fire in us. Our efforts should be to give wings to this fire and fill the world with the glow of its goodness.”
― A.P.J. Abdul Kalam,
Now we have wings, we can fly
We can be kings, You and I
Wipe away the tears from our eyes
We light up the sky!
Do you ever wonder what clouds taste like?
In the sea of concrete, some mornings are just beautiful… all you have to do is just look up at the sky!
“Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.” ~ P.S. I Love You
Human expressions are beautiful. Scientifically based on the 6 basic expressions of happiness, surprise, anger, sadness, fear, and disgust, they can be further combined into 20 sentiments – the 6 basic expressions, happily surprised, happily disgusted, sadly fearful, sadly angry, etc etc etc……
Well, i did type in the full list, but all 20 of them is too much to write on the blog. I couldn’t go through it myself. So, in all probability, no one else will. but you get an idea of the possible combos… any ideas on the balance 10 ? It can be a nice mind exercise! OR you can simply google it (as did i)..
Even if i am in any of these 6 basic expressions or 14 of the balance sentiments, i am trying, really hard to mask these expressions and show only one on my face. A smile…
Yes, there may be different kinds of smiles – happy smile, “i know” smile, loving smile, flirty smile, “i told you so” smile, sad smile, “what rubbish are you talking” smile, “i agree with you” smile, ” you look great” smile.., “Hey there stranger” smile (No, i didn’t google these… ).
When you smile, only those who are close to you will understand the sentiment behind it.. for everyone else, it may just compel them to smile back….
Why do I want to strive for it?
Well, stand in front of the mirror and see yourself. Now curve up those corners of your mouth and give your best smile – and look at yourself.
Imagine, seeing this beauty all around you. The world as is today needs us to do a lot of things to make it a better place. i think this one thing could be the easiest one we can contribute towards making it one.
Everything in your life is the reflection of the choices you’ve made.
Want a different result? Make a different choice……
~ from pinterest
Well, if only it was that simple.
I believe in choices. I believe in the fact that at any juncture in your life you do have a choice. However hard the options may be… you always have a choice
A few times, late in the night or very early in the morning, I get time to sit and reflect on life so far.. I stand by many choices that I made. But I have a few which – if only I could – I would go back and change. Life wouldn’t be dramatically different than it is today, but it could have helped forge stronger friendships, bruised fewer hearts, maybe made me a little wiser… but well… who knows?
Does everyone have these kinda choices in life – however small – that they wish to go back and change, or tweak a little so the consequence was different? May be not ‘life defining’ different, but in small ways that could have resulted in ‘happy-memorable’ moments in life..
For anyone who doesn’t, I am damn impressed!
In the spider-web of facts, many a truth is strangled. ~Paul Eldridge
2016 has been a constant reminder that life is too short and can end in the blink of an eye. Be good and kind to people before you’re gone! ~via (Quotes ‘nd Notes)
Happy 2017! May the world see sanity, kindness, honesty and peace ~ yours truly 🙂
I hope that someday when i am gone,
Someone, Somewhere, picks my soul up – off these pages and thinks,
“I would have loved her.”
“Some people have lives; some people have music.”
