✨Miracle by Danielle Steel 📖

Picked this one up recently in a book fair for some great bargain, mostly cause I have not read Danielle Steel before. ⭐️ It is a story of a widower in his late 50s who is filled with regret of his past life and of his journey into finding his new self and new love. If I have to describe it in one word it will be ‘cute’, 😍 something I would have enjoyed in my high school days. But ya I do love Steel’s simple way of writing and glad I finally got to read one of her works. 💕

Eating Wasps by Anita Nair 📖 “In a small town by the room ver Nila, a 35 year old writer kills herself. No one knows why. 52 years later, an antique cupboard in a private resort opens to reveal a frightened child. And the mystery begins to unravel.” • I started this book with quite high expectations I wanted to read an emotional roller coaster and the drama seeking self that I am was up for it. It was emotional yes, even raw to an extent but somewhere it just fell flat, specially by the end. •First of all there wasn’t any mystery, it was evident from the beginning that it was love that played the most important role in the character’s death. And if the author aimed for a mystery in that, it was a fail. ❤️ What I did love about the book was the characters she knitted together. Every woman and even a little girl so relentlessly fighting and surviving for her own self. The fact that by end of every new chapter in the characters’ life they somehow, so to say, found themselves. There chapters I couldn’t close the book on and then there were some I wanted so much more of. 
Again this is just my opinion on what I have felt. And it is definitely worth a reading. It is sad and powerful in its own way.

PS- It did give me my current favourite word CHIMERA💖🖤
“But some of us don’t have it in us to go on. To invest in the CHIMERA that our tomorrow will somehow be better that the here and now.” 💕

So many lives taken so soon. 
This young girl was such a special one. I wish she knew she inspired so many girls to become the woman she once dreamt of becoming.

For most part of my life I have despised wintertime, mostly because my threshold for cold is REALLY low but also cause I related it to gloominess and yeah exams too. But lately the winter sun and it’s glow has grown so much on me. I love to create my own little corner in the sunniest corner of the house and with the things that make me happy. As silly as it sounds I love to do whatever I can, to lift up myself in those gloomy days and also to make all the sunny days even brighter.

To be afraid of falling is to miss the thrill of getting up again.

If only we could note every word down 
Or may be it is better when not recorded.

For all the loss of lives I have witnessed while working at the hospital and darkness that follows. Some incidents just always linger around long after they have actually happened! ❣️

Sadly one day you leave 
You leave a whole life behind,
A world you created.
All the new  lives you made possible
The legacy you passed on.
You leave all of this behind
And crossover to the unknown.
Till one day it is only about,
The moments that became memories
And the flowers that lay on your ground.

Every road is different 
Some curve unexplored 
Some stone unturned
Some grass untouched.
Let’s get out there and sneak up
On the smallest and the wildest 
of what life and nature has to offer.
Cause eventually what exactly 
Do we have to lose anyway. ❤️ #cocktailsandwords

Memories aren’t always about the best of things
Sometimes they are about the times 
that you just lived through,
some about the hardest of your battles 
And some about times you loved every moment of.
But whatever they are about 
they are a constant reminder that
You have fought, learnt and survived.
And that you have the strength to take life head on now and always.

is a poem worth 
writing about.

Had I known you would be 
the one
I would have taken my time 
in meeting you and showing myself.
But I didn’t and I’m glad.
Cause the first time we met 
was not like anything I have ever done.
I felt I could trust,
I felt I could listen to you the whole night.
And I remember I did listen till the sun came up
I remember the many times you made me laugh
and I remember the kiss I stole.
You showed me a part of myself 
that I did not know I had.
It didn’t feel like a beginning.
It felt like as if that one night was 
a story in itself, 
Enthralling from start till the end. ❤️ #cocktailsandwords

Sometimes the most unexpected journeys 
Give us the best that life has to offer.

Foggy Thoughts. ☁️ At times speaking your own mind 
is not too easy,
specially when reading your own mind
is more like solving a puzzle.
