Everything I have gone through I could not have done without the love, faith, and support of my family. Even though i stay away from home since i was 16, just being around them once in a year or two brings me joy and I forget about any problem or fear I have. They accept me with all of my flaws. And I accept them as well, no matter what.
Soak up the love of your family today & everyday. Be grateful for the goodness you receive. Love them for everything they are and aren’t. Family gives us strength and builds our character. (Not my words.)
My grandpa died before 4 years at the age of 97+. He lost memory during his last few days. But whenever he was able to recollect his thoughts & was able to understand what’s going on, he used to talk about his involvement in Mahatma Gandhi’s khadi movement during India’s freedom struggle. Khadi means hand woven cotton fabric. He used to preach few things till the day he was alive;
1. Saying/wishing/greeting RAM RAM is not a religious thing, even though LORD RAM is the highest celebrated deity in Hindu religion. It’s about seeing divine in other human life & exchanging equal amounts of respect for that reason.
2. The biggest sinners in this world go to church/temple/mosque very often. Because they have to keep reminding god to wash their sins.
3. 10% of your wealth/income must go towards DANA (in Sanskrit it means DONATION), donation towards helping underprivileged & upliftment of society.
Not a secret, i own a small health supplement business since September-2017. And now that business enjoys a loyal customer base because of good quality products & quick customer query resolution. With those fitness enthusiasts in mind, i started an athleisure clothing brand in August-2019.
Like every other human, i am not perfect & my business is also not perfect all the time. Especially the atheleisure clothing brand i am talking about, not talking about profit or loss. My operation is small and we never made a loss. I am talking about clothes not being perfect sometimes. While manufacturing/stitching/printing, in few cases there’s a misplaced logo or a packaging label mishap, a stitching at wrong part of the clothing material or short hoodie strings, so we reject few clothes while passing it through quality testing. But even those quality reject clothes are completely usable, sometimes even i use them as my layer-1 clothes during winter. Like previous year, this year too we will go to a nearby orphanage & a refugee shelter to donate some winter clothes/blanket/woolen socks. There’s an amazing feeling of fulfillment while giving it back. I am forever grateful to almighty for giving me little more than i can consume.
(In case anyone wants to join, i have updated the address in our CMU university group. Please don’t try to overcrowd the place, 12-13 people are enough. It bums my mood to see people roaming around without mask, so please wear a mask while coming.)
Everybody has a home team: It’s the people you call when you get a flat tire or when something terrible happens. It’s the people who, near or far, know everything that’s wrong with you and love you anyways. These are the ones who tell you their secrets, who get themselves a glass of water without asking when they’re at your house. These are the ones who truly believe whatever you own partly belongs to them. These are the people who cry when you cry. These are your people, your middle-of-the-night pal, no-matter what other people think. FRIENDS COME AND GO, LIKE THE WAVES OF THE OCEAN, BUT THE TRUE ONES STAY, LIKE AN OCTOPUS ON YOUR FACE.
These few lines are dedicated to my mates who stood by my side & proved there’s something called “TIME-TESTED EQUATIONS”. Frank, Adam, Daria, Lucy, Karo, Chrissi, Emy & DEMI, thanks for wishing your TAP & joining my tiny celebration. I don’t have anything but gratitude & respect to offer you. I started a tiny health supplement business on 17-Sep-17 with a hope to promote healthy living & eating choices. Raised it like my first child & today my baby turned 4 years old. I wanted to celebrate this day little wilder, little more banter, but whatever comes with a smile is accepted. You own a huge chunk of my head & heart, ALWAYS. Everyday is a small step towards a becoming a better human. I am forever grateful. Love outta respect.
I am a good boy since i was 3 years old🤞. Anyone from my family or friends who saw bit too much sass in my snapchat stories, blame my bestie DEMI’s 🍑 & cheap Ryanair flight tickets. SORRY DEMI.🤪
No matter what is going on in your world, no matter what happens today- do everything with a joyful heart. During the highs and lows, choose a stance of celebration. Everyday, choose to find something to be thankful for, decide to find the gold, and resolve to look for the happy moments.
If you can’t find anything to be joyful about, remember this: you are alive with a beating heart and air flowing through your lungs. This means your work here is not finished, and you haven’t reached your story’s end. You have a purpose; you have a dream that needs you to bring it to life. That is something to be joyful about and celebrate. (Not my words) Fetch your purpose.
Everybody wants to be unique. But instead of working on it & putting real efforts to be something different, everybody starts pretending being superior compared to others which makes everybody the same piece of nothing.
I love it when a person just tells me “she/he wants nothing but piece of mind, little respect & a sustainable living with the right balance of earning+savings+expenses”. The same I expect from my partner one day; A truthful consistent independent person, that’s all.
(I adore you polish bum. HAPPY BIRTHDAY & you are celebrated in my books, always. Missing all your four cheeks.😈😘)
Thanks to all for the warm wishes & amazing gifts. I wish to meet everyone personally & kiss your cheeks or slap your left ass-cheek soon soon. I will not say “THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER“. In case you are connected to me in Snapchat, you already saw how sassy it was!! If no, I can assure it was pretty bland in terms of celebration. But I scored few new friends & some old assholes showed up abruptly, something is always good over nothing. I never participated in karaoke, thanks to Farnk I discovered again that “my voice still sounds like a horny lion”.😜
Enjoying new city vibe. Not loving it yet, few old chaps are a help to feed my mood. In love with something new; I mean new lifestyle, new schedule, new people, new diet changes & stupid weather.
