|Life is too short to be insignificant – Charlie Chaplin|
I have laughed at inappropriate occasions. I’ve made friends that are now friends for life. I’ve screamed and jumped for joy. I’ve loved and I’ve been loved. But I have also been rejected and I have been loved without loving the person back. I’ve lived for love alone and made vows of eternal love.
I’ve had my heart broken many, many times! I’ve cried while listening to music and looking at old pictures. I’ve called someone just to hear their voice on the other side. I have fallen in love with a smile. At times, I thought I would die because I missed someone so much. At other times, I felt very afraid that I might lose someone very special. But I have lived! And I still continue living everyday.
I’m not just passing through life and you shouldn’t either Live!
The best thing in life is to go ahead with all your plans and your dreams, to embrace life and to live everyday with passion, to lose and
still keep the faith and to win while being grateful. All of this because the world belongs to those who dare to go after what they want. And because life is really too short to be insignificant.
– Charlie Chaplin
Legendary is the love that withstands rejection. It will be free of anger and ego.
Legendary is the commitment that withstands humiliation. It will be one-pointed and will reach the goal.
Legendary is the wisdom that withstands turbulence. It will be integrated in life.
Legendary is the faith that withstands a million chances of doubt. It will bring perfection.
Legendary are the events that withstand time. They will become morals for millions.

So beautiful 🙂 Could’nt help but share 🙂
Share it if you liked!
I saw this graphic, and in the first glimpse, it seemed a junkie outta d dustbin, but when I looked at it for sometime, I saw the beauty in its crumpled untidiness….. and realised that its its imperfection that gives it this “beauty”, and its “uniqueness”…..
Imagine a blank sheet of paper with the same letters “LIFE” written over it(u may actually do it practically) and compare this pic with it…m damn sure you’d like d crumpled one more!
N now some geeku inputs, ummm…. life is not the “digital” ‘0’ or ‘1’, i.e. “good” or “bad”, the two loner states hanging out there…all alone!
rather its like a beautiful sine/cos curve(as a matter of fact, any curve) with infinitesimal moments of the “actual life” happening between the start and the end….
To enjoy life fully, we must enjoy these “seemingly tiny” moments, rather than wait for a particular time in infinity to arrive, and then…and then…and then!
I feel perfection is boring, and imperfection is interesting since once we are perfect, we can improve no more, although I truly believe in constantly working towards achieving perfection(with its threshold moving up, as and when I near the point)…..
An example would be to bring a rose for your loved one….. not just on the oh-so predictable special days, but pouring in the affection at special moments.. esp when you think (now that’s up to you how you gauge when these are needed!) and making the one feel special 🙂
The sheer joy of having thought of something like this would not just fill you with joy, but also be felt by your loved ones.
People spend their lives in “waiting for the right time”, and end up realising all the time just flew by…..
So, give, before its too late! Give NOW! You won’t think twice if you truly love someone- ain’t it!
Life is beautiful!
Very soothing prayer (Shabad Gurbani)

I have always believed that “zindagi me bahut sare relations se better hai ki relations me bahut saari zindagi ho”, and that all are lovely souls connected together by awesome energies of the universe….. all caring, and sharing, and loving!
