My favourite quote!

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.

I love quotes! I feel that reading certain quotes can instantly motivate and energise especially when one is feeling down or dejected. Although its just a few words thrown together sometimes they have a magical effect, some even transport your mind to different situations and contexts. Such is the power of words.I remember during my school days, there would be a ‘Quote for the day’ daily and it would be written on the black board on top for the entire day.There started my love for quotes.

Coming back to today’s topic,so my favourite quote is one that was given by my favourite fictional professor! Yes our very own Prof.Albus Dumbledore!

Quote- ‘Happiness can found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light’

This is such a thoughtful quote, it asks us to remain positive and optimistic all through our trials and tribulations and to keep on seeking happiness even in despair! We should have the courage to face everything that comes our way and stand strong throughout. Eventually we are bound to win the battle in the pursuit of happyness(oh with a y)!

Do me a favour and post your favourite quotes in the comment section below, lets ‘Dig in’!

Seeking Divine intervention!

(Actually spent nearly 30 minutes staring at the title of this post , not knowing where or how to start….)

Is the title really that lame? Does it really sound stupid to actually sit n wait for divine intervention in one’s life?! I dont know really …but what I do know from past experiences is that it does work……well atleast eventually…so for me its kinda tried and tested!

And No I am not really that religious and like a lot of other people I shamelessly seem to remember God’s existence only and only when confronted with fear, doubt or grief. And for me to name this post with That title is taking the shamelessness to a whole different level! 

But I do believe in ‘karma‘….but the whole ‘hanging in there‘ part is tough.Days when I think do I even have a purpose in this life? And then other days when I feel like just getting lost somewhere,Why do we even call ourselves free when there is actually really nothing ‘free‘ about this life?! Or atleast why does it seem so and why is it so difficult to cross that barrier n break free….? Yea…. so as you can see I do hit the ‘Writer’s block’ of my life quite often!

There is a nice meaningful dialogue in a Malayalam movie that I saw years back….and since then those lines have been etched in my memory.They are said by an old man in the movie.The lines translate to ‘Every event or hardship happening in our life currently may seem like a very big thing to us now but as the days go by…these past incidents become the different stories in the book of our life, Stories that we will think about, discuss and laugh about in the future’. So who knows perhaps there will even be a day when I will laugh about this very blog post!

I wish I knew the unknown….Till then let me be satisfied thinking, like the song goes…..’Are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?!’ …Are we??
