I’ve translated the poem recited above in English below 🙂 :
When life throws you lemons
Everyone tells you to make lemonade!
Like it’s easy, a jiff of air.
A month back, I jotted down a little poem (after a very very long time) which summarized how I felt then – worried! All nations were shutting down their borders and shelter in place orders were announced everywhere.
And welcome to Himali’s digital art studio ❤
Amidst all the terrifying news and fear surrounding us – right from the health and safety of ourselves and the ones we love, home quarantine, worry about the economy, etc. – I wanted to share something which made me smile today and made me reflect the deeper meaning to life.
In these times of uncertainty and darkness, I wanted to share a few uplifting quotes by Anne Frank. May these give us hope, faith, and courage to know that every dark tunnel will have light, we just have to keep walking 🙂
A while back, I was having a conversation with my best friend who I’ve known for over 4 years and something from what my friend said when we were reminiscing our friendship, stood out:
Hard work is painful when life is devoid of purpose. But when you live for something greater than yourself and the gratification of your own ego, then hard work becomes a labor of love.
“When you say that you love yourself, that means that you have behavior towards yourself that is loving.”
– Will Smith
You think that you don’t matter? Like what you do goes unnoticed? TRUST ME –
People always remember how you made them feel. Your gratitude. Your words of affirmation and appreciation to them.
