Thursday doors

IMG_20150612_155231_1495723339698.jpg

This is the outer view of a houseboat in Kashmir. So, you needn’t be dead to visit heaven, just visit Kashmir alive. The place is no less than heaven ✨. I have  stayed in a houseboat for a few days and it was a wonderful experience to be surrounded with calming water !! The houseboat is very well furnished from inside and the stay was very comfortable. I want to go there once again!!

 

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American time).

What if…

  • What could happen if it always rained on Saturdays?

Other days of the week would have grown jealous of the special affection that Mr. Saturday gets.

  • What if cars never wore out?

Humans would grow old, wear out and cars won’t? This is so unfair!

  • If you saw a mouse in your backyard chewing your mother’s favorite flowers, what would you do?

I would give the mouse something better to eat, maybe a piece of cheese?! And if the flowers are already half chewed, then obviously they aren’t worth putting in the vase.

  • Why don’t we wake up with our hair neat and combed?

Maybe, the hair strands party till late night and become so washed out that we find them in the morning as a mass put shabbily on the head!

  • What would happen if a cow, a bee, and a horse got together?

moo-buzz-neigh choir!

  • What could happen if cats could bark?

They would be called dogs.

  • What could happen if all the shoes in the world were the same size?

“Ouch!”

(inside a small fitting shoe)

1st toe- I am being sqeeeezed!

2nd toe- No you can’t! You are just too fat.

3rd toe- Excuse me! I think I just peed.

4th toe-  *pushes the 3rd toe*  The baby toe needs space!

5th toe- WHAAA!!!

 

This is so interesting! What are your answers ? I would love to hear them! There are always multiple solutions to problems. That’s what creative thinking is!!

A thought : Simplicity

What makes you look rich and dashing? Vero Moda dresses? puffs of blush? flattery heels ? No, please, they don’t !!

“Beauty attracts the eye, but personality captures the heart”

I have a fact that I learnt very recently: The human flesh is so bad that even scavengers don’t prefer to eat it after the death of a person.

So, why have so much obsession with body that has to be ceased and destroyed naturally someday?

The trees still look elegant when they have shed all their glossy shiny leaves; leaves which used to perch merrily upon the branches.

The desert’s beauty is that it looks simple yet is full of life, hidden places and expresses the soul.

Aren’t the black-and-white and monochrome images appealing?

Your beauty does nothing good to others, in fact beauty itself depends upon simplicity 🙂

We need to adorn ourselves with jewels of humanity and empathy so that we can approach the lower half of the society and help them. They do not feel comfortable to have interaction with people wearing suits, golden watches and all the classy stuff garnished with a fistful of pride.

To understand them we need to sit on the same rug, eat the same food and be a good listener.

Simplicity destroys all the complications. It makes our lives so happy ,carefree and devoid of any anxiety or stress.

Glamorize and embellish yourself from inside, with empathy, love and care and only then can you prosper as a beautiful human being.

 

Have simple and happy days ahead 🙂

‘She’ is the ‘One’

IMG-20161102-WA0020

“Women are the builders of the society.” Without them, no country can progress and no family can be complete. She is the best example of humanity. She changes the plain word ‘love’ into a beautiful emotion.

Why celebrate only one day as Women’s Day, when thousands of women help and support us every single day- the biggest role being played by mothers. She sacrifices her happiness and comfort for her family. She deserves at least two hours of her ‘me-time’ for all that she has done for you ,from the time she had you in her tummy. A mothers role cannot be played by anybody except her.

A woman cannot see anybody in pain and is always there to care even if the person is unknown. She can’t hurt anybody. She treats every child as her own, every other woman as her sister or mother and every male as her brother or father.

We have a patriarchal society. There are people who want a baby boy as their descendant or heir. And some more great people who will accept a baby girl only to hope that she will become Kalpana Chawla or a world known personality someday. Are housewives any less ? They are on a 24 hour duty at home. Clean the home. Babysitting. Washing clothes or dishes. Teach the child and all kinds of work that we can’t even imagine. They are popular, known and a role model for kids, family and society. Yes they are !! They are no less than celebrities and need the most appreciation.

Fact : Men are highly dependent on women. Accept it.

Women are the internet or encyclopedia, who know EVERYTHING.

Can’t find your socks, shoes, laptop, clothes, stationery, kitchen item? Mom will find and give it to you in less than a minute.

Can’t solve a maths problem? Your teacher can explain and teach you wonders.

Every woman is beautiful. There are no criterions for judging the appearance of a person. “Beauty lies within the eyes of the beholder”.

God has created men and women as wonderful combinations. Men have strength but are mentally weak and emotional. Women have control over emotions but are physically less strong than men. Both of their qualities are combined so that they both fit in together as two pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.

Respect all the women around you and understand their importance in your life. 🙂

Thank you

Do not hesitate!

via Daily Prompt: Hesitate

Screenshot_2017-03-01-20-06-50_1488379024606.jpg

Often in life we are not able to make spontaneous decisions. We become unsure of the results and take excess time to decide upon a matter. (I am facing one nowadays and it is really a very difficult decision for me!). We hesitate to even express our ideas and opinions ,in the fear of choosing a wrong path.

Hesitation isn’t healthy. It reduces exposure to world and we often miss out precious moments of our life because of it.

Why do we hesitate?

  • The most common reason for long decision making and hesitation is that we may do something wrong.
  • Or to protect ourselves from making blunders in front of many people (but believe me that isn’t correct)
  • To be apple of others eye in just one attempt/decision.
  • Fear- of rejection,of triggering someone’s anger, of inviting embarrassment, etc

There are some decisions which should be taken without any hesitation:

  1. To choose between an apple and a silky chocolate bar. Now that’s extremely easy!
  2. Topic on which you want to write your blog upon.
  3. Whether you will clean your room up or not. (i know…i won’t)
  4. Sign up for a thing which you are good at but still stuck because you don’t have faith in yourself and your talent.
  5. And the most important one comes the last. If you know you are right in helping some desperate person but feel shy or embarrassed ,then don’t hesitate for a second. Smile is extremely precious. Save it.

How to overcome hesitation?

  • Listen to your heart and not mind when doubt and curiosity surrounds and you feel difficult to escape.
  • Do what is right. If you think you can make someone happy then don’t take too long.
  • Set up a time limit for your decision if you think the options aren’t surrendering.
  • Wait. Think. Act
  • Know what your fears are and try to defeat them.
  • Do new and unique things which will give you more exposure to outer world. This will boost your confidence and enhance your ability to overcome hurdles.
  • And lastly, be social so that you are empowered as well as trained to accept various types of responses from different people. Don’t be overconfident and learn to get reviews as well as suggestions.

Do not hesitate. The world isn’t cruel as you think it is.

Thank you
