A Dedication on Teachers Day

Behind every dream I saw,
There was an unwavering belief..

Behind every wise decisions I took,
There was a learning & a lesson..

Behind every success I cherished,
There was you, my ever inspiring teacher..

mitch albom
One of my most favourite quotes from the book Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

Today on this special day, I would like to thank you for believing in me and my dreams, for creating the strong foundations on which I have built my life on, for giving me wings and for pushing me off the cliff when I was afraid to fly; all of it with never ending love and patience. I may not have come to you every time I succeeded, but I knew that you had my back, anytime I’d falter. Thank you for your love, knowledge and inspiration which has made me who I am today !

Let us take time out to say a thank you to every person who has been a teacher to us in this journey of life. Be it our teachers at school, professors at university, our parents – who are the first teachers to us, our friends and family.

You my dear reader, are also a teacher to me. You inspire me to write and writing does to me what the rains does to the dusty glasses. Thank you for reading along and all the inspiration you give me in all forms !

Much love,
Himali Shah ❤

 
Teachers Day-Decoding Happyness

Signing off 2015

“Some goodbyes mark new beginnings.”

As the sun of 2015 sets and the eve of new year 2016 creeps in, I feel fortunate for this year of learning. This year has given me a lot and also snatched away somethings from me, for which I hold no remorse. The biggest thing which I have gained this year is myself. I have come in terms with my fears and discovered my dreams. I have learned to forgive and love unconditionally. I have gracefully evolved and been shaped into the person I am today by the little lessons life has managed to teach me throughout this year. At times, life was unfair; only to teach me how much hope and faith mean in the darkness. At times life gave me pain, only to put me in the shoes of the ones I hurt, so as to make me more kind and compassionate. I have been showered with love, support and encouragement right from my family and friends to my blogging community. I wish to become like a mirror reflecting and giving back much more love, light and peace I have been fortunate to receive.

2016 holds high hopes, dreams and ambitions for me and you. I will pray for your success and happiness as dearly as I do for mine. Keep me in your prayers. Hugs, love and prayers to you 🙂

Signing off 2015 ! Hello 2016 🙂

Gratitude Fills My Heart

21st Sept is celebrated as “World Gratitude Day”. Unfortunately, I got to know about the same, just today. But, regret not ! It is always better to be late, than never. Let us celebrate this wonderful week as “Gratitude Week”, thanking the people who fill colours in the rainbow of our lives and bring light and love to our being.

Thank you so much for being a wonderful blessing in my life 🙂 Life is a bundle of gifts in all forms. I am thankful to every person I have met in this journey of life who has made me the person I am today.

I am thankful to my wonderful blogging community – my friends without borders of nations – who have helped me realise, my love for writing and have never failed to encourage me with their love and support.

I thought to myself, as to what can be a better way to celebrate this day than by thanking God for the presents he has showered upon me.

Here is my #ThankYouGod list :

So what’s on your list ?

Thank you for reading along ! ❤

NEVER, Ever Give up on Life & Hope !

sayings-about-life

We all have good days, days when we feel like we are flying in spaceships towards the cosmic joy, we have sad days, days that are just empty & days that seem like the worst has doomed upon us. For someone the “worst” might be a breakup with their lover, a quarrel with their family or beloved friend, failing an exam, not getting the job they dreamed of or a failure or setback which diminished all forms of hope and faith in goodness & the Almighty, a death or a loss that is impossible to recover.

Life is like a bell shaped cyclic curve. At a point in time, things get pretty stagnant and dull. Continue reading

My Dearest Teacher

Teacher

Had you not held my hand,
When I stumbled, on way to meet knowledge,
I would have been lost..

Had you not answered the questions of my curious mind
Which, to everyone else might have seemed so lame,
I would have been a half-baked pot..
