There was a girl named Aparna who was studious, but could not score well in her examinations. She was upset with her results. She came home distressed and sat idle in her room without eating all day. Her mother got to know the reason and came up to her, sat beside her, held her head with her hands and placed it gently on her lap and said, "What is destined will reach you, even if it is beneath the ocean. What is not destined, will not reach you, even if it be between your two lips".
Then she fed her daughter and let her sleep. Aparna thought of what her mom said and slowly fell asleep. She started dreaming and in her dream, she asked god, "If everything is already written in destiny, then why should I wish?” God smiled and said, "May be on some pages, I have written as you wish".
"Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to wait for but to rather achieve. Failure is not the opposite of success, It is a part of it. Never let yourself down in adversity, obstacles are just small deviating paths. Accept everything yourself in your life. A setback just sets you up for a comeback. We all fail at some things but we aren't failures unless we give up. We cannot change what happened yesterday, but we can control what happens today. Things may not always go your way but you are free to choose how to reach your destination. Once you choose hope, anything is possible.
Look for the good in the bad as no matter how bad things get, as it is bound to get from good to better. The mind is everything and what you think is what you become. Whatever may happen in your life, accept it with your whole heart, either good or bad. What we dwell on is who we become. We are creating our lives through our thoughts and feelings, so you cannot hold yourself responsible for someone else's happiness.
It is impossible for you to be responsible for anybody else, because you cannot jump inside someone else’s mind and think or feel for them. Focus on your joy and be an inspiration to everyone around you. Make your vision so clear that your fears become irrelevant. When you know exactly what you want to be or do, everything else becomes irrelevant. Your fears won't stop you, the opinions of others won't bother you and failure won't chase you.
Visualize the life you want daily and don't let anything get in your way as you work to make your dreams a reality. Make a change if you aren't happy with how things are going. The only thing constant in life is change. None can live your life for you. If you want something, go get it. If you want to do something, go do it. You can't control the circumstances you were born into but you, for sure can change your outcome.
Everything starts with your thoughts. Your thoughts become your actions; it's the law of nature. Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Spend at least five minutes everyday visualizing yourself accomplishing your goals. Visualize having things you want and the life you desire. A great vision for yourself will change your life. Look for positivity in every situation. Some may be harder to find but do your best to see the good in everything.
You'll thank yourself in the end and save yourself from lots of stress. Always focus on how far you've come and keep going until you reach your final destination. Stay focused and stay persistent and never quit no matter how any obstacles you face. Never, ever give-up. Be grateful for what you already have or you will never get what you want. Gratitude creates abundance. Complaining creates poverty. This is the key to a happy, successful and peaceful life”.
After listening to everything Aparna woke up. She thought of what God just told her and started her day with a new hope. She understood that a wish is worth asking only when one has a burning desire for it.
I don’t know who I am. I don’t know where I am but I know I’m with someone. It is very dark here. I know that I’m with her and that she is my protector. How much I pain her that much she loves me. There is no reason for her love. Till this day, I don’t know who am I, but now I can feel my heart beat because of her. No one on this earth can measure her love. Her love is precious. Yes I’m in love with her. She’s my first love. Many people say that love is something a great feeling which comes and goes on to every person. Our love is not the love that everyone experience which starts with staring then friendship and other stuff. Ours is blind and unconditional love.
Her love is a love before first sight. Her love is filled with happiness, pain, tears and for all these she has a meaning to love. Hers is the purest of the pure love. Although I sleep, kick; move she feels heart full of happiness. She made a world of heaven for me and that is where I live. Our hearts are beating and waiting for one reason that is to see each other. Months passed. I couldn’t wait. I started fighting to see her and she can understand that but couldn’t bare that. She was crying in a lot of vain, shouting and wailing in pain. Successfully I came to see her. A lot of lull descended.
She was lying on bed in unconscious state while I was wailing to feel her touch. I was lying beside her. The echoes of my cries and my voice hailed into her ears and made her conscious slowly and she opened her eyes. Her looks started to search me and see me. As soon as she saw me, tears started spouting from the corner of her eyes. She held me gently in her arm with a grip that steadies and kissed me on my forehead. Once, twice, thrice...and that was my first kiss and she was my mom. I can never forget my every existence in a deep kiss of hers. Nothing can be more comforting than a mom kiss. I need loads of these kisses. Ours is the strongest connection in nature. The bond between us will change over the years, but the strength never fades.
Mom, your love built me a foundation of trust and affection that will last a lifetime. She is the one who takes everyone’s places but no one can take her place, distance, forever, hardship all will fall before the strength of her kiss. Thank you for showing me grace and thank you mom for showering me your incredible love towards me.
