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..

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 ❤

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 :

You were the wind,
That gently caressed by cheeks,
Then you became one,
One with my storm..

Together we were a hurricane,
A hurricane of love,
Who constantly challenged,
The age old norms..

We’d play, we’d laugh,
We’d fight, we’d cry,
Togetherness ran perennial,
We grew inseparable..

I held your hand and lifted you up,
When climbing the ladder you fell,
You’ve been my backbone,
An anchor to my restless soul..

Best Things in Life Happen Unplanned

The best things in life,
Are neither planned nor known,
They just happen unknown..

In the blink of an eye,
Your world might change,
Although it would sound so strange !!

Happiness – The Kids Way

I came to Ahmedabad today morning around 9 am at railway station. I had my dad waiting for me happily, to take me home and help me with the luggage. On our way back home, I was fretting about the late train and chilly winter breeze in the wee hours of morning. We stopped by a traffic signal. I looked around just to observe and admire the small changes in the city I loved and missed so dearly.
