2016: A year to remember.

2016 a year that I’ll never forget. A year that turned my life upside-down and pushed me to my limits. Many unfortunate events happened. I lost my parents and other family members as well. My Ma & Pa, the ones who brought me into this world, suddenly left me all alone. In a span of 8 months I witnessed the worst, I saw my parents struggling for their life, I felt the helplessness and I experienced the unimaginable pain. I have never in my life been so scared and so shocked. At first, I couldn’t accept the fact that I lost my father. I cried but more than that I controlled myself for my mother’s sake. But then I cried like a little kid when just after 2 months of my father’s passing away my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. I cried my eyes out and I kept on complaining. I pleaded to God and to my father to help us from the beyond. With unanswered request I again gathered all my strength for my mother’s sake. But she left me too after 4 months of excruciating suffering. Somewhere deep down I feel relief for her. She wanted to live and she was a fighter but the cancer left her with no choice. Her body eventually gave up and she freed herself from all the worldly pains. Nobody can take their place and nothing can fill this void inside me. Fortunately, I have a loving & caring family. Husband, sisters, nieces, nephews, in-laws and my precious friends (more like soul sisters).Β  They all helped me in every which way possible. And I can’t ask enough from them. I love them with all my heart.

All in all 2016 taught me a lot. I learned many important lessons.Β  Firstly, the most important one is that life is unpredictable so don’t waste it after unnecessary meaningless petty issues. Value your relationships, sort out your problems, forgive & forget, fulfill your dreams, travel, explore, discover. Just don’t waste the precious time you are blessed with.

Secondly, live your life the way you want to live it. Never let anything stop you, bad health, work stress, sacrifices, failures or personal issues. These all are part of one’s life, learn to live happily with it. Also never undermine yourself. You have every right to be the person you are. Believe in yourself and live guilt-free. Focus on yourself and find out if some treasure is still hidden inside you. By the end of this year I found out that I not only write a to-do-list but I can actually write some meaningful articles.

And lastly, never hide your feelings. Vent them out. Choose a medium and vent them out in the most positive way possible. Talk, discuss, write, whatever suits you. I chose writing. It’s your turn now.

2017 is finally here so I wish you all a stress-free, pain-free, peaceful, healthy, wealthy, happy new year! I hope, you all find real happiness…Most importantly you find yourself! πŸ’‹πŸ’–

The spark within you πŸ”₯

Karma is invincible!

Live a great life! πŸ’–

Wish upon a star πŸŒ 

While admiring the shimmer of the sky.
I wonder if those stars also lie.

Shining brightly in the same spot.
Do they pretend what they are not.

Are they the place where our lost ones reside.
Or just heavenly bodies in space where no one can hide.

There is so much more to them than meets the eye.
Without them there will never be a beautiful night sky.

We only see what’s good on their outside.
We never notice the real struggle scorching their inside.

They burn themselves to charm us with their twinkle.
And we think everything about them is just so simple.

That’s not the end of their story, not at all.
We even wish upon them when they die and fall.

They give us something to learn and something to think about.
If you want to shine like a star then burn yourself inside out.

Death is inevitable but don’t die in vain
Live such a life that thinking about you eases a lonely heart’s pain.
