You Survived

Step out of the door each day knowing that you can handle whatever it brings. Believe in your journey – look back at how far you’ve come. Be bold enough to make decisions without knowing exactly how they will turn out in the end. They may be far from perfect. But that won’t matter. Because they will be yours. Be honest. Say what’s on your mind more often. Don’t waste time thinking about it.  Because maybe its exactly what someone wants to hear. Listen to your favourite song.

Spend time doing something you love. Don’t let your to do list take over. Be open to change. Greet a stranger. Smile for no reason. Stop thinking about how the world sees you. Embrace life just as it is. Even if its not what you had imagined it to be at this point. Destiny, is something that you have no control over. But when it comes to everything else, you’re in charge.

Work hard. Give it your all. So that when everything falls into place, you can say that you did something right. That you are proud. Of having made that choice.

Stand tall and keep moving. Wear your scars with pride. Let go of the fear. Because if you are lucky enough to have reached that point, you will know that you survived.


Snowflakes in the Sand


Take that chance.

Rather take every chance that you can get.

At something that you truly want.

Don’t let it pass by just because it wasn’t what you asked for.

Or because your’e afraid that you won’t be able to win at the end of the day.

Because the truth is that you can’t “always”.

You can’t always plan.

You can’t always succeed.

In fact, its just the opposite of all of that.

This journey that your’e on.


It was never meant to be painted in black and white.

There are no rules.

And the only boundaries that exist,

are the ones that you set.


Every time that you let yourself think that you can’t,

You stop yourself.

From growing.

From turning into someone who’s even stronger,

than the person that you see in the mirror everyday.


Stop trying to play safe.

Stop avoiding the path that seems so unfamiliar.

Because maybe taking it is the next step.

Maybe its the only way to end up having

everything that you dream of.


Its okay to not know.

Or even doubt yourself for a while.

Does that mean that your’e not tough enough?

No – not at all.

What it really means is that your’e at that point.

Where its all about to change.

Everything that you once knew.

Everything that you believe in.

Its time to question it.

Is it enough?


Are you happy with where you stand?

Do you have the courage to go further?

Is this truly what you want?

If it is, then go ahead.


Take that chance.

Even if it doesn’t make complete sense.

Even if it seems impossible.

Embrace the challenge and make a wish.

And who knows, it might just work.


Because miracles really do exist.

And life might just surprise you,

And you might discover something that nobody else has till now.

Like snowflakes in the sand.


Be brave. Be limitless.

Don’t settle.

Because every end could be a new beginning.

And that possibility is all that matters.

The Mirror

She looked at the mirror,

And froze at her place

Someone stared back at her,

A familiar face

With eyes full of questions,

Painted with mystery

Waiting to know about the future,

Asking her to let go of what was history

With a faint glow,

Giving her endless hope

Decorated with a smile,

Asking her not to give to give up

She turned away,

And wished that it wouldn’t stare

But when she looked back again,

The face was still there
Asking her to be strong,

To keep standing at her place

To embrace the person who looked back at her,

The one with the familiar face…

Angels on Earth


As she heard the first heartbeat,

A tear rolled down her eye

She looked at the angel

that she had just been blessed by

Her smile was radiant

Her skin as white as snow

Her face reminded her of the stars

it had that special glow

She embraced her tightly

and said – I love you

And the little angel held her finger

to show her that she knew

My strength, my hope, my pride

that’s what you will grow up to be

thought the woman

and smiled silently

Daughters are a blessing. A reason to go on. A beautiful gift from above. Treasure them all.
