A father’s Love…the unspoken emotion…!

To the most magical person in my life….

The day that I first held you in my arms; my soul saw you and it kind of went…Oh, there you are…I’ve been searching for you all my life. From the moment I have laid my eyes on you, I have found the purpose to my existence in this world.

Though, the days have become longer and a good night’s sleep has become a luxury, you make every little obstacle in life worth taking on and they seem to disappear when I see your smiling face. Life kept on challenging me in so many ways and from you I finally found the reason. Through those tests and trials I have become stronger, to be there for you when the going gets tough.

The love I have for you; the responsibilities that grew within me since the day you arrived, changed and shaped my life in such a way that I cannot still believe how someone so little have such profound effect on me from the very first sight. Days before you; I considered myself to be the toughest person among my friends, indifferent to many things happening around me. But, you proved me wrong. I am now a different person, a very sensitive person; because I have become very protective of you. I want to shield you from the evil in this world.

The best parent in me you may have not seen, but what I see is the most precious person in you; my best friend in you.

I love how your face lightens up when you see me, as if I’m the only hero in your life. I love how your little finger grasps my hand, as if I’m the only protector you have. I love how you cuddle with me, as if my warmth gives you the greatest comfort in this world.

Spread your wings and live LIFE to the fullest my little angel; because I am going to live mine through your eyes. I LOVE YOU!

 

 

When we stop taking risks…We stop living life….

As we continue in life’s journey, there comes many instances where the choice of a risk is given. It may be involved with moving to a different place, changing careers, having a child or simply falling in love. In some occasions we may be given an option and in some, there’s no other alternative than taking the leap.

Risks, by nature are very terrifying. It’s consequences are uncertain and unpredictable. There’s always a possibility that we may have to pick up shattered pieces and start all over again. Nevertheless, what we must realize is that out of our comfort zone is where magic happens.

Risks gives us the opportunity to explore our dreams and aspirations. It tests our talents and limits.  Taking risks enhance our self- Risks allow us to nurture and discover new things about ourselves and also about this world.

There are two types of people in this world. One is who is not keen to take even the slightest risk in fear and other is who is willing to take every opportunity that comes their way. We must keep a balance in these two extremes and try to discover our true potential; as by escaping risks, we gradually shut down our world, making it unexciting.

Opportunities don’t just happen. We must create them. By being observant and sensible, we can minimize the disappointments and maximize the probability of the success.

Whether we become successful or not, taking calculated risks will expand our capacity and life will bless us with more courage when facing darker days.

One day, all that we would be left with are the memories of the times that we took a leap of faith, whether we won or not.

May be…just may be…everything you want is on the other side of your fear.

So, think a min….because in the end, we only regret the chances we did not take.
