“In the history of the universe, there has been nobody like you and to the infinity of time to come, there will be no one like you. You are original. You are rare. You are unique. Celebrate your uniqueness.”
– Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them”
― Thomas Merton
“Well, it seems to me that the best relationships – the ones that last – are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and
you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.”
― Gillian Anderson
You came in the evening
Like a bright star
With just that one perfect look
That’s all it took
Please do a favor to me
Remove all the chains and set me free
Lessen away my pain
If you could make me love again
May the bells of Christmas ring
a song that never ends.
May the joyous sounds they make
bring peace to all our friends.
May the lights of Christmas bring
an everlasting glow.
May the love that fills our hearts
bring warmth to all we know.
May love and joy and peace be yours
now and evermore.
Merry Christmas to all my lovely blogging Friends!! 🙂
“People can have their opinions about everything in the world, but people’s opinions end where the tip of my nose begins. Your opinions of others can only go so far as to where their own shoreline is. The world is for your taking, but other people are not. One is only allowed to have an opinion of me, if that person is done educating him/herself on everything about me. Before people educate themselves on everything about you, they’re not allowed to open their venomous mouthes and have an opinion about you.”
– C. JoyBell C.
“Staying silent is like a slow growing cancer to the soul and a trait of a true coward. There is nothing intelligent about not standing up for yourself. You may not win every battle. However, everyone will at least know what you stood for—YOU.”
– Shannon L. Alder
I will tell you all about it
Next time, maybe
You are too young right now
Wait for the next time
I will handle the situation better
You next time
Their child kept sliding further away
Leaving the mountain of fake promises
Silence filled the space between them.
The Child keeps waiting and waiting
For the next time to come,
Suppressing the urge to know
Deep within his/her heart.
They let them drown in the ocean of confusion.
They let their soul burn in the fire of a wait.
They soak their pillows with tears of sadness.
One day, when their bones could not bear the weight of confusion and
Their brain exploded from the headache of unanswered questions.
That day, they said to themselves that
They will not leave another question unanswered
But satisfy their hunger on their own.
Next time for sure.
There comes a time when you have to
Let your kids go and let them face the reality
Just like a baby bird will have to
Leave the nest and learn to fly on its own.
You cannot make their decisions for them
And you cannot expect them to return.
However, you can hope that
Their path of life is filled with happiness
Due to the lessons you have taught them
Before letting them march their own journey.
