No If And Buts Only ‘Letters To Juliet.’

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around.

Bob Marley

Another simple,soft and romantic movie for your weekend ‘Letters To Juliet’ There are so many books,stories,songs and saying about love ,mostly people thought it just happen in your youth or teen age .But that’s what interesting and different in this film ,is that Love happen any time at any age you just need to accept it with open heart.

This journey begins when a young writer found a 50 year old letter in which she finds about the love of this British girl with Tuscan boy who still not met .So a girl now an old lady visit a writer with her young grandson and here the most beautiful journey of their life begins……I am sharing a letter of a writer really touching and motivating to what it teaches us all is to for get the IF and Buts in your life if you keep on thinking and worry about these two words how you enjoy your life .Cherish your life and love and don’t limit your for these two words you have only one life so enjoy it.

“Claire: Dear Claire, “What” and “If” are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: What if? What if? What if? I don’t know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it’s never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like – love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I will have the courage to seize it. And, Claire, if you didn’t, I hope one day that you will. All my love, Juliet”

Finding My Soul Pleasures In Lock down

Virginia Wolf once said , “If you are losing your leisure, look out! — It may be you are losing your soul.”
Truly said by many wise people but still when we are fulfilling our responsibilities and living our routine life mostly we forget about our own self, our pleasures,interests, hobbies, dreams, wishes we become robots or machines. You heard many people saying, ‘I have everything in my life but I am still not happy’ well you know why because in the hustle and bustle of our life we forget to give ourselves a little me time which is as necessary as oxygen for your body so me time for your soul food. At one side COVID-19 have many bad things but there is one very positive point, it gave many people time to look into their selves lots of Me Time for activities they long forgotten. I myself forget that there are so many interesting activities which i love to do in my free time which makes my soul very happy like lots of book reading,painting,writing, taking care of myself. The big blast of COVID-19 make a crack in a grave where i bury or hide unintentionally my long lost pleasures. So when light enters from that crack and slowly all my dreams coming out from the crack at first I am confused but gradually i realize they are my dreams.

But somethings are just,”Blessing in Disguise.” When everyone is busy in their life what ever they are doing whether earning money, pleasing others and just stuck in our routines. This horrible thing happens and at first we are scared, anxious but when everything is shut down we realize what was missing from our lives, why we aren’t happy after having everything, we woke up.

In short we all need Me Time to fulfill the requirements of our soul. Our very own self is very important whether its our body or our soul. We need a place and time away from others opinions, less destruction so we hear our own voice. So dear ones just rise and shine with a little me time.

‘Leaving behind nights of terror and fear. I rise, I rise.’

My Cup Of Tea

I really want to write something about my love of tea well that doesn’t me I drink a lot of tea but still i am addicted to my morning and evening tea. As William Ewartv Gladstone said Tea help us in any condition and situation will warm us in cold weather and cool us if we are too heated.There is a word in urdu language for Tea ‘Murshad’ they say tea is a murshad of all drinks like leader of all drinks.

Tea is healing……In all this process tea become part of healing .From years or centuries people are drinking tea for many reasons when guests came we offer tea ,if we have any slight physical illness like headache we have a cup of tea, if we want to celebrate any thing with every yummy dishes tea is must,if you are reading or so many more things we have tea as our friend who are always with us in sadness or in happiness.Sometimes i think with all its qualities like tea is war, sweat,easily available easy to make share everything with us.Tea is more than a friend .

When after university I start having tea time with my mom we share happiness and worries. I love to buy different beautiful cups and mugs for tea. Now after marriage when I miss my friends and my mom I make a ‘Cup of Tea’ and call them and have little me time with my dear ones.

Alpha ,A Movie

Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end.”
― Roy T. Bennett

During quarantine many people watch movies, read books or spend time with their family. Today I am sharing my views about a wonderful movie name as ‘Alpha’ as we have so much time but still i want some good movies to watch with my kids so they learn something good and enjoy as well. ‘Alpha’ is an amazing adventurous movie about a boy name Keda and a dog wolf. So what’s good in it,it’s not only treat to watch for your eyes mesmerizing nature ,seems like untouched earth of that time so soothing to watch the sky full of stars everyone film makers and actors did their work wonderfully.

Now let’s talk about what is more interesting in it as a mother of two boys, I know how difficult for you to send your kid first time for an activity which is not interesting for him so Keda’s father take him and other members of his tribe for a big hunt as Keda seems reluctant and by nature he is very soft heart boy he is not interested, his mother worried as usually mothers know about the nature of their son.But still they went on a hunt ,in short he fell from the the mountain during hunt and all of his tribe thought he is dead ,they came back .But he is alive and when came back into his senses he realize he is alone, he is afraid cry for help but no one there to help so there his journey begin .

That’s what is incredible about human beings, is the choice to keep going.”– Jack Antonoff

Through this journey he learns many things one of them is to ‘Keep Going’ and never give up. During his journey to reach back to his family a pack of wolves attack him but he save himself by climbing a tree and in this a wolf get wounded .Although he is very afraid but still he helps the wounded wolf because of his kind nature and soft heart ,he help him feed him till wolf is fine ,both of them are away from their families. In this journey Wolf became his family yes more family than a pet and help and protect him in all his journey to reach to his tribe. Truly said by Heather

Animals are a gift from above for they truly define the words unconditional love.”
― Heather Wol
f

They both give each other unconditional love fight the obstacles in their journey and after all reach the tribe.

A wonderful movie must watch with your family.

Lots of love and prayers

Hope,Faith and Depression

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
― Emily Dickinson

Now a days people are so much worried they mostly spend their time in feeling hopeless and helpless .This will lead them to many psychological problems and the most severe condition is when one precious human being take their own life ,this will show peak of their hopelessness. There are indeed many other reasons of psychological problems but still being hopeless is one of them. Keep your faith strong remember God’s promise there is always ease after hardships.

“For indeed ,with hardships will be ease .” 94.5

If we observe our sorroundings we see beautiful examples of hope, like a rising sun after setting such a beautiful scene with lots of colours of hope in it ,remember when a child is crying and mother’s hug and kiss give him hope and he started smiling at once.A small candle lighten the dark room ,a whole dark sky at night brighten up by small stars and look so beautiful. This whole universe is full of hope standing firm for us .My dear friends ,’Don’t lose hope.’ If you lose a job, if you are sick ,you are hurt ,lose a friend or in any difficult situation remember there is always a rainbow after a storm wait for your rainbow .

How to get rid of this condition of hopelessness?

Stick to the things or people which give you hope like any good book,any song or anyone in your life ,sometimes talking to someone give us hope so stick to positive people ,you have just one life which is important ,you are important live your life enjoy it if feel difficult take baby steps.

Just imagine Despair or Hopelessness as some demon who is trying to possess you.What you do if some evil force is trying to possess you ,you try to stick to your God Almighty ,read from your holy book and do things which will keep this demon away so just think it as demon and have strong faith kick this evil away.

“Darkness comes. In the middle of it, the future looks blank. The temptation to quit is huge. Don’t. You are in good company… You will argue with yourself that there is no way forward. But with God, nothing is impossible. He has more ropes and ladders and tunnels out of pits than you can conceive. Wait. Pray without ceasing. Hope.” – John Piper

Lots of love, prayers and most important Hope for you.

Live In a Moment

What day is it?” asked Pooh.
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
― A.A Milne

What i learn from my life is to, ‘ Live in a moment’ live it fully enjoy the small details which many times we ignore don’t pay attention or just don’t think they are important at all like enjoy your evening tea while talking to your mother, husband, siblings or friends.When your kids are telling you anything about their friends or any of their favorite toy or game give them full attention and enjoy that moment as well don’t start thinking about your past, oh! when he was infant he got so sick or Oh what do i do for their university etc come on they are telling you about their toy and they are very happy so be happy with them live this moment don’t ruin their and your happiness just because you are still in past or in future.

Many times our kids and their favourite cartoon programmes teach us many good lessons just like Pooh’s favourite day is Today and so is mine now. I am just remembering my childhood poem which now i understand fully.

The time to be happy is NOW

And the place to be happy is Here

And the way to be happy

Is to make someone Happy

And we will have a little Heaven right Here

So that’s what i want to say is that the time is now and the place is here. Learn from your past and move on don’t start living there.

Be Yourself

Leo Tostoy once said , “If you look for perfection you will never be satisfied”. Let’s Talk today why and how to Be Yourself, well i am thinking about this blog and whether to start it or not because as i know i am not a professional writer so i think how i start a blog or something when so many good and better people are there who are doing this already. Than i think and realize that this is kind of a journal for me, I write what i write and how i write as i am not Perfect and Perfection is the trait of God Almighty not us humans, we are here in this world to make mistakes learn and just Be Ourselves, yes my dear readers, for my own self or who ever is reading don’t think too much you are “Beautiful” in your own way. Do what ever you want to do right now, we will learn during the process. Let go of the idea of ‘Perfection’, let’s take the first baby step towards whatever you want to do without any fear of whether its right or wrong because we are all imperfectly perfect.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
