“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Do You Help Yourself ?

Hey.. Peeps.. :) We generally complain why its happening to me? or why the hell its with me only? In support to my answer I will say: Actually, because we don't help ourselves enough. We don't accept it, we keep on blaming circumstances and others. All this yields frustration leaving us broken. I think: "we don't try all possible options". I too.

2 days ago a friend of mine called me, I was glad to see him calling. He used to be a good friend of mine in college. Helping, supporting are few of his plus points. :) He explained me how to be positive in worst conditions, he told me various stories of people who are victims of worst conditions. After college my other friends never called me, never even replied for my messages. Should I still call them friends? But still am left with 6-7 friends who regularly contact me, reply me, support me and I will never forget these people. And I will always help them in every possible way. Thanks to them for always being my side.

I think: "we get things easily and we never thank for it but when we have to struggle for something then we have a list of complaints". Robert Harold Schuller has always been a source of inspiration for me. His write ups has always helped me. Have you ever read his book: Success Is Never Ending; Failure Is Never Final. It can change your thinking, and it will bring loads of hope and optimism in you. I love this book. 

Have a look at this video: It will definitely bring hope and positive energy in you. Life is good, don't complicate it. Don't be helpless, we can help ourselves. Never leave hope. Good luck for life!! Signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love the little blue bird on your blog! So cute! I wrote something on my blog with a similar message, about helping yourself, or saving yourself- manifesting your destiny. These are good principles to live by!

  6. Hmm..the thing is I could not see that video, since my internet connection does not allow me..and frankly speaking, I don't know what's the problem, but I can not see any of the other comments on this page (i think they doesn't get loaded too)

    btw, about that thing, friends, I would like to say something, I am really at this stage..we have left college just few months ago and I think this is the time when you get to know, who your real friend were..I know the phone conversation or sms is not the proof, but yes, it can be helpful in deciding this factor..

    I am glad, you have at least 6-7, I am counting on it and i think i too have this number, but i am quite sure it will drop in next few months..

    stay connected!!!

    In this life, the number of fingers on your right hand will most likely not exceed the BEST and truest friends you will end up with :)

    As human beings, we tend to only count the things we don't have instead of all the blessings we already possess :)
