Thanksgiving Day

Image credit- Self

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. 

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.. And now i am a joyful woman once again.. here is his website: Email: OR CALL +2348058176289

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: Pyjamas are Forgiving by Twinkle Khanna

Blurb: There sitting on that porch, that light-eyed man, a pitta like me, was my ex-husband and that woman whose inner element I was unaware of unless bitch is accepted as an undiscovered fourth dosha, was his young wife. In the serene sanctuary of Kerala’s Shanthamaaya spa where food is rationed, sex is forbidden and emotions cantered, Anshu meets someone familiar and deeply unsettling – her ex-husband. Bittersweet, funny and wise, Pyjamas Are Forgiving confirms Twinkle Khanna as one of our great storytellers. About the book: The book is narrated by a woman named, Anshu who is in her early 40’s (divorced) and is childless.  To take a well-earned break, Anshu is in a Kerala Ayurvedic Shanthamaaya spa, where food is rationed, sex forbidden, and emotions cantered, whilst on her journey to remove dosha, Anshu is met with a familiar, yet a deeply unsettling sight- her philandering ex-husband, Jay, with his much younger wife, Shalini- who is quite opposite from her, both in physical and emotio…

Dolce and Gabbana 'Dolce Floral Drops' Review

“Dolce Floral Drops is fresh and light, yet as precious as a morning caress.” – Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

For those who know me, would tell you how much I lovehoardingcollecting perfumes. And for those who doesn't, now you do.

Today I will be reviewing a perfume from one of my favourite brands, Dolce and Gabbana ‘Dolce Floral Drops Eau de Toilette.’  I am very particular when it comes to choosing a perfume. I go for mild and delicate or say ‘not so strong’ kind of smell. This time, the pretty Dolce Floral drops caught my attention and I had to give it a try.

The scent is light and fresh with a twist of sweet yet dewy and soothing texture. Going by my preference, I love fragrances which are feminine and sweet, yet a spray and it should stay for long. D&G Floral drops comes in a thick glass, curved lines, and solid bottom, the cap is sculpted in the shape ofa white flower with petals, the bottle is a frosted glass which gives it a misty green colour.
Subtle with a hint of fr…
