My silver jubilee!


Today is my birthday; my silver jubilee. And for the first time in my life, I don't feel happy on this day. To think about it, it was a long birthday (like a long weekend) this time, if I start counting from the first birthday wish. An old friend of mine, who now lives in Australia was the first one to wish me, and that was yesterday morning. So, my birthday started almost one whole day before it started here. Other wishes kept coming as the earth kept rotating through all means - Facebook, Whatsapp, phone calls.. So, doesn't this mean I should be feeling extra special this time? But, I don't. I just don't. I feel lonely. For the first time, I don't have my family or friends around me; at least one of them was there always. Also, there was no birthday cake. I mean, what is a birthday without a cake? Never before did it hit me like it did today, how much I need the people I grew up with- my family and my friends, who were there to celebrate the occasions of my life with me. I miss them so much today, and I would do anything to have them here with me this day. 
I know the day isn't over yet, I have a birthday dinner ahead of me, and I hope I will feel better afterwards. But, the day is still incomplete without the people who were there with me on each of my birthdays. I secretly kinda hope for the impossible, that they all come down here to surprise me. How awesome would that be!

Well, anyhow. Happy birthday to me.

  1. I love you so much sweetheart! <3<3
    We all grew up with wishing each other on smallest of occasions.. I wish the same when I had My Silver Jubilee this year..
    But I guess, this is a part of life and as we grow old.. unfold its chapters.. and each chapter cannot be the same..
    I miss you! and I badly miss the times that all of us spent together! :(
    Love you tonnes.. Happy Birthday love!

5 Motivational Quotes about Gratitude // Monday Motivation

It's the Thanksgiving week, and we can use a little more gratitude in our life.  So, today I am sharing few quotes about gratitude  to fill our hearts more with love and abundance and to remind us that life isn't bad at all!


“Sometimes life knocks you on your ass... get up, get up, get up!!!  Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.”  ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free


“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart,  it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”  ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh


“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”  ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love


“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”  ― Maya Angelou
