Gratitude

 

IMG_1521

 

The world celebrated Thanksgiving Day recently. Even though in India we do not have a culture to celebrate thanksgiving Day; I would like to express my gratitude for the life I have got taking this opportunity.

Everyday while driving to work; passing by -seeing around I somehow tend to feel so much thankful for things I have got in life. Once my father told me something which my grandfather told to him when he was young- “always look at the people who are deprived rather than looking at people who are far well off than you (and thinking all the things you miss in life)” this will always keep a sense of gratitude alive in you for all the little things you have in life. Well don’t lose the sense of competitiveness in the whole process though; as to grow in life you need to have a healthy competitive feeling.

There are times when I tend to ignore those little goodness done by people around me; which I sincerely thank today and in future I look forward to have more positive thinking with right approach to appreciate things and people and goodness around.

How to live passionately no matter your age

This is extremely intimidating to come across people with high positive vibes in the midst of our day to day chaotic lives.

It just lends so much of positive perspective to our own life. But yes one needs to have the attitude to imbibe the positivity. Not many people get influenced by hearing things until and unless they have an open mind to listen to constructive things around them and try to incorporate it in their life.

I extremely get infatuated by people who can spread such knowledge around and I tend to appreciate the way they have incorporated the same in their life.

Isabel Allende is 71 yrs old lady who despite growing older imparts an incredible perspective in living life passionately.

No matter how old are you, if you live your life passionately then you live your life to the fullest. I Liked the things she spoke about – Freedom- not bothered anymore to prove yourself to anyone;  here goes the video of her talk (for TED) where you can find out more about it – may be it can a good influence in your life too.

ASLEEP

484834_10151756718591887_877974368_n

 

While reading the book ‘Perks of being a Wallflower’ I came across this track name…on checking  online and  I loved it..I could not find the official video for this hence just the track.

The mood is defnitely not happy here…but a different one..bit eerie…not many might feel connected…but for me there is a hopefulness…and I love the tune of the song…here goes the lyrics…

 

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I’m tired and I
I want to go to bed

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don’t try to wake me in the morning
‘Cause I will be gone
Don’t feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don’t want to wake up
On my own anymore

Sing to me
Sing to me
I don’t want to wake up
On my own anymore

Don’t feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really want to go

There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well…

Bye bye
Bye bye
Bye…

While browsing through internet I have been coming across beautiful house interiors and get intrigued by different ways home fragrances are used around the house to add to the decor in terms of vision and beautiful fragrance.

 

PERFUMED CANDLES

Candles are easy to put anywhere and if its scented then more of a reason to have them placed in every room.

Diptique Paris has amazing perfumed candles. I love the way the candle is used on the coffee table as seen below.

You have all the more reason to have them in your bathroom too.

REED DIFFUSER

This is a new way of freshening up the indoor air. If you find this a bit expensive then there are different ways available on web to make your own reed diffusers. I have some recipes for you here and here .
