My "Yo-Bro" Friend - My Daughter!

My "Yo-Bro" Friend - My Daughter!

 Daughters have always been Fathers closest and most loved friends. This relation can never be diluted in any way! From the very moment she is born she is very special. She shares a very close and ethereal bond with her father. Not that the love between Mother and daughter is any less, but the Father-Daughter bond has always stood out strong and lasting. 

In what better words can I describe my own daughter like all daughters are to their father, than in the words in this picture I am sharing with you below. 




 This bond grows as the child grows and becomes strongest when she comes into her teens. She is on the look out for a friend, confidante, trustworthy partner and a shoulder to lean on whenever she needs it. And what better person than her father to fit that spot. 

As mentioned above it is a very touching and blessed relationship that cannot be described in words. No matter what age you are your daughter has always made you laugh, made you proud, made you cry, hugged you tight, seen you fail, cheered you up when you were low, kept you on your toes, and even driven you crazy at times with her unique mannerisms which you love so much. She becomes and remains your friend forever!

As we care and support for our daughters they have always been known to reciprocate in the same way and even more than what was normally expected of sons. The Gender bias issue stands large and looming today! But daughters have always proved them all wrong!
As she grows, she may grow by size and may not fit in your arms as she did so cozily when she was a child. Those moments will always remain a memory, but she will never outgrow your heart!

Today as I look back with foggy eyes at memories of yesterday it dawns on me that I have a friend for life. It also brings a chill in my spine in saying that today I'd be lost without my daughter!

 And when your daughter feels as proud about you and is so vocal about it, not only in words but in actions it gives your immense pride and a warm heart. 
 Your heart swells with pride when she mentions your cherished relationship to her friends and companions, and offers her help and mine as well to be friends with them as I have become with her. This maturity makes you feel so touched, and your mind goes off on a roller coaster ride all the way back when she was a toddler! 

All I have to say today to all fathers and parents in general. Do not discriminate between your children and create sibling rivalry. They are your own blood and body. Love them as your own, teach them respect for one another and see how your life will blossom! 

Today when my daughter says "Yo-Bro" when she approves of something I accept or is in line with her own thoughts it brings tears to my eyes, because I am so proud I have fulfilled her trust not only as a father but as a friend who she can feel totally in freedom to share whatever she feels.


I pray to God that this relationship  between a Father and Daughter remains and grows, and also that all of you have a wonderful family life, where you are all friend for life!

Take care, God Bless! 

LIVING LIFE - LIFE'S WAY

"LIVING LIFE - LIFE'S WAY"

You don't need a Five Star Monarch Cruise to enjoy life and feel its magnanimity. Life has the most fantastic Package Cruise for you all ready, but we fail to realize and partake of this wonderful gift.

All you have to do is let your feelings open up, share them in earnest with the ones close to you, friends, family, needy, and Life will open up the biggest Free Package Deal for you.


Life is Feeling for others happiness and joy!

Enjoying Life does not necessarily mean only with your Wife, or children. There is more to life. Spend some wonderful moments with your friends close or far. Reach out to a disturbed mind. Extend your hand to the Old and needy. Bring a smile on their face by spending some quality time with them. THAT - is life! And Life is Love. 


It is unfortunate that we that we have in our Society set the definition of "Love" is a very selfish way. Love has its own nuances and only one who feels, expresses and understands these nuances and shares them with respect, trust and selflessness will understand the true meaning of Love and LIfe.

In today's fickle minded world if you were to just say "Take Care, Love You" to a friend you will find tongues wagging and lashing out the choicest comments and expletives, and even whispering into your spouses ear every possible tag line that would make love shudder! We never have understood the true meaning of "Love", and immediately link it to a physical relationship or personal gratification. Little are we bothered or realize that you can share and cherish the best of loving relationships with a good friend, without ever hurting or compromising the trust and respect for your own personal relationship with your spouse which in fact is so pure, blessed, and godly. You could mean so much to the other person or someone may want to be a close part of your life as a good friend, without hurting your own life, and they hold on to that feeling for life, living a life of hapless disappointment and feeling unfulfilled. 



Yes you would have to have total control over your own feelings, but if your trust and understanding with your partner and spouse is so strong that it transcends all   boundaries of mere feelings, you could truly make a big difference in the world to so many others who crave for love and a happier life. A simple hug, a kind word, a consoling kiss on the forehead are like life to a person whose life may have gone through trauma. There are so many who are in need of selfless and pure love, but due to a few selfish, fickle-minded and corrupt minded people who derive sadistic happiness in hurting others, even at the cost of personal gratification and insult to the other, shed a shadow of doubt and create a pseudo perspective in the minds of others.

You have to differentiate between fantasy and reality. Life brings to you every phase of love and happiness. You have to be mature enough to realize the nuances in each stage. 

As we cross each stage in life from a child to an adult the meaning and feeling of the word "Love" changes so drastically, but few of us realize it. The love and care for your child is at its purest when a child is born in the family. Children are closest to God. Our care and concern for them until they grow up knows no bounds. But as they grow we trust them and yet love them to stand up on their own feet and taste the meaning of love themselves.

The meaning of Love for the same child as they grow goes through different phases as they cross their teens, grow up to be adults and phase out into the elderly phase of life keeps changing. We have to accept those fine changes at their respective stages and respect them too. It is understanding and making your children and family members aware of, and make them respect these stages that this same life gives you Happiness! If you flow against this trend, life will create disturbances which become difficult to handle. These are created by us and not life. Life has only Happiness to offer. How you accept each stage and take full advantage of this package is your own perspective to life!

Accept life as it comes in every stage, understand and feel the nuances of the various feelings and offerings by Life. Learn to respect each stage for what it stands, and you will be surprised that Life offers you the best of the best! It is for you to accept or leave it. 

So make the Best of Life and the only way you can do it is - " LIVING LIFE - LIFE'S WAY".

Take care, Be Happy, Be Blessed, God Bless!

Add Life to Days, Not Days to Life!

Add Life to Days, Not Days to Life!


HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016!!!!!
REMEMBER THERE IS MORE HAPPINESS IN GIVING THAN IN RECEIVING -- Yes we are all so eager to welcome the new year, and I can already see a positive cheer and trend among the posts that are feeling so good about the year that has passed, and also eager to welcome the New year! If you analyze deeply a specific trend in the content, being those happy comments have come from people who were and still are involved with the Noble Act of giving, either through their selfless social service, NGO activities, personal share and care campaigns, schools or creches that they run, which are all involved in human interaction.

Compassion, Care, Love, Giving, Sharing, Empathy - not Sympathy, and going beyond your limits to do something for others is the very key to Happiness to yourself as well as to the world. The Law of Attraction states what what goes out, come in and that too x-fold. Do good, feel good and share good and this Good will spread like fresh Air all around you.

Yet due to our mechanical ways in this rat-race world we are so addicted to thinking about days, months, years, Calendars, which only limit our expression of the good that we do. For a person involved in doing good, he or she sees or experiences no time constraints. With personal experience I can say that when you are doing and sharing Good, you start falling short of time. You are oblivious to what is called the "Calendar". Every moment is Bliss, and you in fact don't want that moment to go out of your hands.

On the other hand, just imagine someone who is constantly thinking negative, feeling and cursing for his past and present situations without even trying to deal with them in a rational manner. They will always curse the day, keep saying "I'm fed up, when will this day or my life end"?, "The day is going so slow" etc.

Let not the negatives in this world hold you back. Think positive, feel fresh, do a good deed for someone, however small it may be, put a smile on your face even if you are in pain, and see how the Universe will re-align things for you in a manner that you will start experience Good and only Good around you. All negatives will dissolve into  Oblivion, and you will see only the best of the world coming to you.

All I wanted to share is let us not allow our mundane life routines and limitations to hold you back from doing and sharing good. Do good, share good, feel good. Yes we are all Eager to welcome the new year but as the saying goes -

"ADD LIFE TO DAYS - NOT DAYS TO LIFE"

Wishing you all the Best in all you do, and may Happiness, Prosperity, Peace, Fulfillment, and Success be with you always! 
TAKE CARE, GOD BLESS!
