Dreams of 2019

InkedNew Year Quote_LI

Dears,

I do not know what 2018 brought into your life. May be joy, may be challenges or perhaps, both! But I’m sure, for all of us, it brought lessons that will stay with us for a lifetime. One lesson that has stayed with me is this conviction – you’ll never lose if you’re truly passionate about a dream. Outwardly, even if there was absolute failure, your dedication will live on and kind of form a chain reaction, leading to the ‘one’ who will eventually make your dream come true. The ‘one’ may be your child, family, a random person or event. But it will come true! The important thing is to stay true and passionate to your dream. So, here is wishing you big dreams and possibilities in 2019. May even the sky doesn’t limit you!

Love and peace,

Shivangi

Just a Thought – You’ve got my back!

When you know someone up there has got your back, you’re afraid no more. You soar, you dive, you float or you fall flat, nothing matters! You look up and say – you’ve got my back, why should I worry? And you smile at the thought of someone watching over you, loving you, protecting you and sometimes pushing you…so that you learn to stand up! But all along you know, it’s all for your own good!

(I took a small break from blogging. But I’m back my friends to share my life and thoughts with you almost every week. Sending lots and lots of love and peace your way!)

If You Are Sad!

No, I’ll not say I’m sad you are going through this difficult phase. I’ll not indulge in grief along with you. Never! Rather I’m convinced impediments, grief, setbacks and disturbances will mould you into somebody special. I heard someone say today that failure teaches us far, far more than victory, always. I agree! Therefore, I’ll pray for you and wish that you welcome your grief with a smile and say – Try me, I stand strong, you can never break me, you can only mould me into a better version of myself…into a fine miracle!

Just a Thought – There comes a moment…

There comes a moment in life…when you suddenly need to be a parent…to a different set of kids – Your Own Parents. Challenging, Heartbreaking and life changing! You cannot afford to be a carefree kid anymore. You have to really grow up and stand tall…at once…maybe overnight. Your carefree self observes from a distance as the cloak of maturity chooses to fall on you. You change at that moment. Forever.

Saluting those who embrace the responsibilities and challenges that come with the noble task of parenting older ones 🙏🏻

Daylight Savings Fun!


I had no idea what daylight savings was before coming to the US in November few years back. And soon after, when I was asked to set our clocks one hour back, it baffled and tickled me. 

I still don’t get the concept behind it though, but love it when the clocks go back. So, yesterday was our daylight savings day and from now, if it is 10:30 am in the morning here, it will be aprox 10.00pm at night in India. Cool, isn’t it! It will stay like this until Spring and then the clocks will move one hour ahead. Baffling, yes and fun too!

Small Thing#3 – Memories

I was on a cleaning spree, ruthlessly discarding whatever stuff had not been used since the past six months. I had a huge pile of things around me which others would have found useful. But a useless little plastic bag made me stop. 

Printed on it was the name of my beloved home town and my country (India)….thousands and thousands of miles from here! I tried to put it away but just couldn’t. Finally, I folded it neatly and put it safely in a drawer. 

Why, I still ask myself? Have you felt like this…lately?
