sunshine ……. 🙂

Rules which are waiting to be followed:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.

  • Nominate (at least) 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.
  1. How often do you get nasty thoughts and what they are about?

It’s a cheesy question. I do get nasty thoughts but I am gonna pretend like I don’t. And if we talk about what are they about, then I would say, they are mostly uncategorized, random thoughts.

2. When was the last time you got into an argument with someone and what was the? reason

I don’t really remember,but I will wait all day and then write, if I got into one. So I am leaving this for the time being.

3. What is your opinion about death?

In my opinion death is inevitable and undefeatable. If we are given this life at some point it might end. Every chapter in a story ends, and the story itself ends after compiling all the chapters. And life goes the same way. Everyone who is born in this world has a common destiny.

4. How often do you argue with your own thoughts?

I do argue with my own thoughts and I do it often.

5. What do you fantasize about?

I fantasize a lot of things, I have even built my own fantasy world. A world where I can be anything and there is no one to judge. Sometimes I write prose exploring my vast imaginative world.

6. What would you like to achieve with your blog?

Exploring self thoughts and ideas, helping others as well.

7. What excites you the most?

Playing with my friends and going to different places is what that sounds exciting to me.

8. What does success mean to you?

According to me success is just a social tag. There are a lot of books in the library claiming how to be successful in life etc. Well I believe, if we desire to be successful we should be productive at first. And success is a secondary outcome which is a result of productivity.

9. Who/What do you love the most?

I love drawing and crafting stuff.

10. How would you describe your past?

I had a lot of fun, participating in different co-curricular activities and sports events, and making new friends along the way.

Dense Woods

If you ever happened to be walking alone in the woods. Sounds creepy and mysterious, doesn’t it? And today we will try to get the same kind of experience but rather in a different way. So get ready to explore lot of things along the way as we embark on this mysterious journey, together.

‘Walking in the woods experience’ is one thing which we all had experienced and still are. If you say, you haven’t then your body is not doing homeostasis, and you probably aren’t alive.

Okay, enough of the riddles. What I am trying to convey is that ‘life’ is very much similar to ‘woods’, and you might want to know how? Or maybe you don’t. But here I go.

1. Mystery

Walking and exploring in the woods is similar to exploring in life, as we don’t know what each new moment will bring. So there is a lot of mystery.But do remember there is always a reason behind every mystery. At night when its dark we might hear or see many mysterious things but when the day breaks we realise that every mystery had an explanation behind its existence.

2. Fear

Sometimes mystery transforms into thrill. It happens when we overthink. Again taking the woods example, imagine of walking alone with trees and creatures when you suddenly hear a croak, you will be scared even before knowing the source of the sound, it might be poor little frog. But you won’t be able to overcome your fear until you calm yourself and meet your fear. And for sure after meeting your fear, you will realize that it wasn’t worth all that worrying. But it will only happen when you will take charge to face your fear for your betterself. And you, the one sitting behind the screen can do anything.

3. Beauty

For your journey so far in the woods or I might say life.You will see things the way, you want to. You might end up cribbing for your dirty shoes or be grateful and feel blessed for being a part of the wondrous journey, where you are able explore the nature and the self. Life is as beautiful as you will make it.So go on and explore.The way you look at things makes a lot of difference.

Sorry, for being super late, but I want to wish you all a happy mother’s day 😉

5 thoughtful quotes, explained!

For you, I have collected some of the most thoughtful quotes. As the name suggests these types of quotes triggers the thought process to begin thinking. I got all the quotes ranging from Shakespeare to Leo Tolstoy. So get ready to broaden up your horizon as we begin.

1. Today is fair. Tomorrow it may overcast with clouds.

From the famous speech of Chief Seattle (1854)

The quote states that weather is unpredictable and so is the human nature. It might be a clear day, today with the Sun shining brightly in the horizon. But who knows what tomorrow will bring to us.The way future prediction is fickle and deceptive, so is the weather and human nature.

The city of Seattle, Washington,U.S.A.

Fun fact: The city of Seattle,in Washington,U.S.A, is named after Chief Seattle.

2. The quality of mercy is not strain’d,

It droppeth as gentle rain from heaven

Upon the place beneath: it is twice blessed;

It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.

Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

The quote is taken from the play , Merchant of Venice written by Shakespeare. It means that quality of mercy is not forced, it is symbolic to the gentle droplet of rain falling to the ground from heaven. It blesses the one who receives it as well as the one who gives it. And that’s the reason why it is called doubly or twice blessed. Forgiveness is one of the kindest acts and one should never refrain from it.

Fun fact: This particular quote from Shakespeare’s play, Merchant of Venice is even famous in the ‘Monster World’. The only difference is that the playwright is called ‘Shakesfear’. Pretty much used the same criteria, the animators of ‘Monster High’ have always used. Also, while stating ‘Cheerleading Squad’ as ‘Fearleading Squad. (hit like if you know what I mean)

3. Even kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare to an ant filled with the love of God.

Guru Nanak

The quote is simple yet, powerful. It expresses that the mighty in the world, the kings and the emperors which are heavily inherited cannot be compared, even to the eternal mighty’s ant, which is filled with its love. Materialism is what we dwell in, and it can never be compared to Idealism. One should acknowledge that wealth is not important than human relations.

positive vibes

4. Where must we go……

we who wander this wasteland

in search of our better selves?

The First History Man

This quote has a lot to tell. It gives an insight of our future, where the land is barren with no greenery. And, humans are compelled to wander in the clouds of ashes and harmful gases in search of a place like home, for their better selves. All they get is nothing because there is no place like green and there is no home. Millions would be wasted. This future of humans is all because of rapidly increasing pollution levels, and is not very far. But, we still have time and power to change what is to come. Everyone’s future is in their own hands, so think about it.

Mad Max: fury road

Fun fact: The above quote has also been used and well portrayed in the movie, Mad Max: fury road.

5. Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

Leo Tolstoy

Everyone has a power to think and sometimes we think of changing the world, in ways of its working or systems. Though, evolution is a long process which requires both diversity and will. We tend to forget ourselves as the part of world, and somehow never really agree to contribute in the evolution, which we, ourselves are demanding for. Seems like it is easier to teach twenty people than, to be one of them to follow your own teachings.

best of luck, I believe in you

Thanks for devoting your time! 🙂

Diversity is important

Zatch was one of the friendliest kids to be with. All of this just changed when Zatch started going to school. In-fact Zatch was a completely different kid in school. This was because of the fact that maybe, he was antisocial and an introvert. If not being talked to, he does not say anything. It’s his habit to speak only when the question is specifically being asked to him.

On the other hand, there was a girl called Aria. She was the most talkative and humorous girl on the entire planet. She likes to make new friends and is really quick to speak up. Aria wants everybody to talk to her, but that would rarely happen.Chances of it is like one and a half out of a million. Now, you might be thinking ‘why?’.This is because Aria is surrounded by kids like Zatch. While Zatch has experienced only Aria like kids. Both of the kinds are completely opposite but happened to be in the same world.

Now you would think it’s not just, nobody is ever satisfied. Well I would say that creating Aria like and Zatch like kids in the world was a calculated step of God.Think what will the world turn into if everyone will be talkative. Nobody will ever listen. So it was important to frame a Zatch for every Aria. You know why, just to make the earth a neutral planet. We would not have liked a polar Earth and to prevent this the Zatch like and the Aria like kids were created so that the net charge on our planet is zero.

celebrate diversity!
