A note to myself, to cover all aspects of life: work, relationships, life in general:

Grass is not greener on the other side.  It is greener where you water it!



I carry your heart with me


I am reminded today of  a few lines from one of my favourite poem by E.E.Cummings


i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it (anywhere i go you go,my dear…
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)



There are days when things go so well that you cannot help but remind yourself – the only super power you know of is the power of a heart felt prayer! Super Dua is a duper if you please.

Never under estimate the power of Dua, especially of the one who loves you most! Those who love us truly, for them there must be a special speed dial connection that goes all the way to the Approving Authority!

Lucky are those who are remembered in prayers!



Note to Self


As I turned 37 on April the 22nd, there were so many reasons to be thankful for, and it was such a humbling experience to see everyone making  my day special for me. By this time, you also realize that those who want to stick around for you – will always do. Those who value your presence in their life, will remember your special day, with or without facebook!

A birthday is probably the best time of the year when you are reminded of this quote:

They say the most wonderful places in the world to be in are: In someone’s thoughts, In someone’s prayers and In someone’s heart. We are lucky if we manage to be in all three at the same time!

Do not ever let go of your friends and loved ones who keep you in all three places at the same time! That’s special – and special is rare.



And Jibran says…


“The reality of the other person lies not in what he reveals to you, but what he cannot reveal to you. Therefore, if you would understand him, listen not to what he says, but rather to what he does not say.” – Khalil Jibran
