Intelligent or Happy?

Yesterday, during the usual "time-wasting" activities of mine which mean Facebook and Twitter for most part, I came across a quote: Intelligent girls are more depressed because they know what the world is really like. I just paused for few minutes reading it over and over again, and looking back at my life trying to see it. And you know what, it did not take me too long to relate to it. I could, sadly, so easily find so many instances and examples from my life and things that I have seen to show how true it is. Within my own circle of friends, there are happy and ignorant girls, and also the sensitive and well-read ones. I can not seem to decide where I want to be? Although it's too late to choose sides now, but this clear trade-off is so expensive and unfair. And the reason is not us, it's the society and its narrow-minded controlling values. This makes me sad to even think that the most hard working, well read, intelligent women might just be losing their chance at happiness because they can see the difference between right and wrong, and analyze the things that happen around them, to them, and they can feel all the pain that's in the world, and their own world. The sense of responsibility they are put under, and the set of expectations they are supposed to meet. Wouldn't life be much simpler if we all could just live like we wanted to, without society tell us what we should do with our life. 

What would you be? Intelligent or Happy?

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
