A Few Good Quotes !

Here is list of the best quotes that will definitely make your day. Have a look ;

“Eleven Hints for Life”

1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return.
But what is more painful is to love someone and never
find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
never meant to be and you just have to let go.

3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a
porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.

4. It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose
it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been
missing until it arrives.

5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an
hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it
takes a lifetime to forget someone.

6. Don’t go for looks, they can deceive. Don’t go for wealth,
even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you
smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day
seem bright.

7. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go,
be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and
one chance to do all the things you want to do.

8. Always put yourself in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it
hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.

9. A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck
a life. A timely word may level stress. But a loving word may
heal and bless.

10. The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best
of everything they just make the most of everything that comes
along their way.

11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with
a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone
around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die,
you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.

I Want To Be Special To Someone

I just happen to receive a mail from someone asking to write something about how I feel about the people who have a special place in my life.

Here something that comes out of my mind on this ;

This is just a glimpse of what it really means when we say that ” I want to be special to Someone ” ;
The feeling or just a thought of being special to someone gives a total smile on our faces and we feel something even i cannot describe here. What I can is that whenever we start expecting to be treated as special by somebody, either we get so excited that we hamper it our self or the other way round, we are disappointment.
So what’s wrong in expecting and wanting to be special to someone ? I say, its totally fine ! We always have the right to feel the way we have always wanted about a person, whether being special to your parents or your friends or for that matter the person you love the most. Just remember that it won’t work that long if it’s one sided, so when you expect something please be ready and give that person what it needs to be special, so that neither of you get disappointment.

I have many of them in my life with whom it sometimes feels like there’s hardly any bonding, but all the spark comes back whenever we talk or for that matter even meet. It’s not possible for everybody to give a special place to everyone in their life, but it does matter how much you have the equation of the relationship solved with that person. For friends (the good ones) it a month, a year or even two doesn’t matter, what matters is the attitude the person carries towards us.

That’s all i have on this, because it feels great when you’re surrounded by people who always care for you and will do whatever to keep that smile on your face intact. I am glad that I have many of them in my life & wish the same for you all.
Keep Smiling and have a good life !

PS : Do tell people how you feel about them if they can’t make out because just remember they are also human beings and they don’t have any sixth sense to read your feeling automatically. 🙂 🙂

Friendship : Decoded !

Recently International Friendship Day (Observed on First Sunday of August) went by. It meant celebration of FRIENDSHIP! This made me wonder- what friendship actually is ?

Giving my second thought to the question and stressing over a couple of days, here i am with my second post.

FRIEND or FRIENDSHIP, these words aren’t new to anyone of us. Right? But does its meaning remain same for all of us ? I sincerely doubt !

The moment a child steps out of the house for the very first time entering school, he/she starts to socialize, and make friends. How simple life was when we were kids! Anyone we talked to instantly became our friend with no hidden hard feelings.When sitting together in the class or playing all together made the best buddies, a thread meant the symbol of friendship.I wish the things were same now.

As we grow up, friends get categorized: friends, acquaintances, classmates, hostel mates, college friends, coaching friends, friends of same group, close friends, best friends and the list is long! One or two of the lucky ones would get the honorable tag of being the best friends! Silly but true isn’t it? The amount of sharing depends on the category we fall in & the level of friendship shared with them.

Well, that perfectly marked the difference from what childhood friendship was sharing everything equally with everyone. No ifs and buts! But the scene changes as we mature. Words are chosen with respect to the listener not the speaker.

Then the next question comes to my mind that- how do i justify friendship in the present scenario?

Everyone says that best friend knows it all. I ask you, is it really true? Aren’t there still some things deep in your heart that even your best friend doesn’t have a clue about? Whatever be your answer, yes or no. It did make you think for a while. Didn’t it?

But why do we divide the categories? Sharing a bit here and a bit there because we are scared of putting all the eggs in the same basket?? Is it the insecurity of being judged or the presumptions that the person won’t just understand? Or there isn’t enough trust in the person/ friendship? Or the fear that the secret we hold so deep in our heart will not be a secret anymore?
Sometimes these questions really freaks me out and make me think more. You never know, even the best relationship in the world can give a hard time to your neurons. 

What is the reason, I wonder! Why can’t we treat every friend equal? I understand the fact that everything can’t be told to every single person whom we call our friend (with ever increasing friend list on social media) but what about inner circle of friends we have? Do we share everything with them? I am sure the answer will be NO!

Few of my friends gave an explanation saying– ‘ In today’s world, people don’t have time !’ Really? I bet, if i  get that busy someday, i would definitely not survive for more than a couple of days. No one in this world expects you to give a knock on their door everyday or chitchat on a daily basis. But doing it even once a week, would give them immense happiness and bring a smile on their face. And that didn’t include whatsapp or messaging, but according to the tech savvy genX, even that would work i guess. Will it?

So eventually, with so many friends around, we end up being alone with the company of those unspoken thoughts circling our mind constantly waiting to be heard.
So, is this friendship is all about?? May be!

I never thought of decoding a perfect definition of a friend or for that matter friendship. But to take a second thought of what friendship in particular means for us. Everyone will have their own version of friendship,and its very justified, but what are we doing to keep its spirit alive? Being in tough with your friends will obviously make you a more happier person, someone will always be there to hold your hand walk along with you. 

Whatever we might go through or whatever we might/might not hide, we still need friends and for them we will always be ready to do anything because although we don’t share ourselves wholly, we do share a part of us with each one of them differently!

So fellas, stay connected to your pals ! If possible ring them, message them and talk your heart out. Maybe the person would have been waiting to hear from you, so when you cross each other someday, a smile would fill in the gap instead of weird awkwardness.

Stay Happy and Stay Blessed ! 

Do share what you think about friendship? 🙂
