Thanksgiving Day

Listening to people talk about being thankful had me wondering whom and what does being thankful actually mean? does it means being polite enough to say 'Thank You'  to the person who held the elevator door open for you? to the shopkeeper for giving you the exact change? to the cab who left you at your destination? or to the one (God) who is responsible for everything in our life? 
I really don't know about many who are much devoted and is thankful for almost everything in life. But, me being someone who does her job of following spiritual rituals I am thankful to God more than anything, for whatever he does/did for me. Even on good or bad times, either ways I am thankful to him. Nevertheless, I often fail to follow the phase of giving thanks and it ends with a complaint, whilst I forget to be thankful/grateful for everything. So, this Thanksgiving day as a reminder I thought I had list down the things which we should be happy and be grateful for. 

#IAmThankfulFor:
1. Parents - Without whom we would have not existed in this world.
2. Family- They hold us close and even closer when we need them the most, they keep you going in life. They are at your back.
3. Friends- They understands our shortcomings and are there to stand with you against all hurdles.
4.  Food-  Happy we won't go hungry, we get enough to sustain.
5. House- We have a roof over to protect us from all harm.
6. Clothes- We won't go cold,  we have enough to keep us warm throughout winter.
7. Hardships/struggles  - It makes us stronger and bolder, we can take up challenges anytime.
8. Losses- It teaches us to go on in life without some dear ones. Life is all about gaining and losing.
9. Work- We are on  our way to achieve, working and slogging hard takes us a step ahead to success.
10. Life- We don't know what tomorrow holds, but we have our life today, so be even grateful for it.


Despite all this good stuffs in life, sometimes we end up complaining saying we don't have enough of what we want, maybe this are your shortcomings/flaw and you need to push them off. I have seen there are many who just wished to have one or two from the listed above and they seems to be the one who are more grateful.

When you encounter such moments and you find yourself complaining on not having the right shoe to match with your black dress: Remind yourself that you have a closet full and some of them are still unworn or unused, there are some who are contented with just one clothes to wear everyday. 
Or, the times when the rain  pours and your umbrella is not big enough to cover your favourite bag: Remind yourself that they are people who are happy to get drenched and even happier to watch it pour. Or, the times when you are hungry and get frustrated at the restaurant for the food that has not arrived yet: Remind yourself how those who are hungry and have nothing to fill their tummy still wakes up every morning with hopes to find food (Sometimes they go to bed hungry)
And, when you are complaining for the life you have: Remind yourself that there are some wishing and hoping if they could live on forever or at least for a day more. 

 I am thankful for my life and I shall complain less and think more about those who are just happy and blissful with what life has to offer, they are infact the one who are more appreciative and thankful for nothing.  
I have decided to remind myself of how blessed I am, now I wish to be more thankful even if it means for nothing. 
I am more than fortunate enough to be Thankful to God. So are you.


Happy Thanksgiving Day to all...!
Be Thankful.

  1. OMG!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony..I visited a forum here on the internet few months ago, And i saw a marvelous testimony of this heard nor learnt anything about magic before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not until DR EZIZA did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me in the same 48 hours just as i read on the internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you DR EZIZA you are a God sent to me and my entire family..

Ahaglow Face Wash Review

Tried and Tested! For the past two months, I went through a very bad acne outburst phase. And when I say bad, it means BAD. So, with my knack for researching, I googled trying to find a cure or maybe at least some home remedies to treat my acne. But, a multiple trial and error and I gave up.  We know how pimple popping is more than just satisfying, hence the 'habit' left me with very bad scares on my forehead and chin, also I noticed more acne than I had in the first place.  Finally, a visit to my dermatologists came to my rescue. She prescribed  some medication i.e. face wash (I am coming to this), some anti-acne ointments, and a few capsules to take.  Obviously, I had to religiously follow the skin routine treatment, but in the hour of everything, there was this thing which I discovered… it was the face wash (Yep, the point of this blog, TBH) which I can give the entire credit to. AKA presenting to you my fountain of youth in a face wash (I am exaggerating a lil bit.) Ahaglow.…

Book Review: Can a Girl and a Boy be Just Friends?

“He knows everything about her, right from her favorite books to her favorite bra. She knows everything about him, right from his favorite soccer club to his favorite x rated websites. He will complete her English homework, even at three in the night. She will arrange an Armani suit for him, even if it calls for flirting with ugly guys. He has her picture in his wallet. She has his number on speed dial. They talk to each other all the time. They talk about each other when they don't talk to each other. They discuss everything from periods to PlayStation. They have tasted alcohol and then thrown up...together. They have bunked countless tuitions... together. They can’t live without each other. YET they don't love each other. They are JUST FRIENDS...”
Can they be just friends? I mean a Boy and a Girl? This is a universal quest everyone is trying to find seek. Some say they can, while the rest says it's not possible. I am asking you this because the title of the book I will be re…

Killing Time in Delhi by Ravi Shankar Etteth: Book Review

About the Book Bon vivant Charlie Seth, a privileged denizen of Lutyens’ Delhi, leads a life of idle luxury fuelled by money, drugs, sex, and parties. A cocaine overdose kills his ditzy girlfriend, thrusting him into a maelstrom of conspiracy, murder, blackmail, and promiscuity. As the world of Crazy Rich Punjabis unravels, Charlie’s future is suddenly at the mercy of an enigmatic woman, an unscrupulous swami, a society-obsessed policeman, a slippery drug pusher and a disloyal valet. The only person who can help him is his missing aunt. Holed up in the country palace that his grandfather had won in a game of cards from a raja on Diwali, Charlie plots his revenge. Killing Time in Delhi is a brutally funny look into the shenanigans of Delhi’s ultrarich who live in the fast lane and are high on hypocrisy, borrowed money, and dubious deals.
My Take on the Book You may be wondering, 'if the title of the book is really about 'Killing Time in Delhi?' then,  yes, it is. Also, it is ab…
