CELEBRATION OF HAPPY LIFE

Stop! I am talking to you. Yes you. Hold on. Take a deep breath slowly.

You are perfect. You are fresh as child. Love yourself. Feel yourself. God loves you. You are his child. Throw out every stress. You are unique. You are special.

Don’t think about those people who are always pointing at you. It’s not necessary that every people will love us. It’s OK! It’s completely OK if few people are not like you. They are just human not God.

Respect yourself. You are everything to your parents. Your mother gave her life for your upbringing.  Love her. Give some time to her. She deserves your precious time. Share something kidish to her. Make her feel like that she is important part of your life.

Live your life as much as crazy people. Add some madness in your life. Insert some childish ingredients in your life. LAUGH as much as you can. Play like children. It’s OK if you make some mistake. You are HUMAN not ROBOT.

New Morning, New Day

But you are still Old, Why?

Nature believe in present

But you live in past, Why?

So many complaints, so many problems

Thankfulness has gone far away, why?
