Our Land, Our Home, Our Heart

14 August, huh?

It is almost at our doorsteps. What are you planning to do on this special day? And I am talking about things apart from decorations and fireworks. Yeah, we should celebrate this day. After all, 14 August is our Independence day; a day of love and sacrifice. But I am thinking more along the lines of doing something productive for this land. We should give something back to this land we live on. Don’t you think?

We can start with little things; plant something, throw the trash/waste in the bin, water the ground and along with all of this, be good to our fellowmen. A big number of us already do carry out these acts, but at the same time, a big number of us do not. Can we join our hands on this: work for a better Pakistan?

Millions of people sacrificed their lives to give us the land we now call our home. I think it’s about time we start to own it and treat it like one. 

You know hoisting a flag, or decorating your houses with small ones, once a year, is not enough. It does show our passion and joy we feel for our country. But it mustn’t be restricted to just one day a year. What you say? Agree?

We stand under this flag as one because

We are PAKISTANIS FOREVER!

What Matters…

The number of people standing beside you don’t matter, what matters is honesty and loyalty. Even if it is just one person, as long as there is trust and sincerity in the air, you will be just fine.

Cracks…

We all are  broken, in one way or another.

Some have more cracks then others; that doesn’t give them any superiority over those who possess less.

To all of us, whether they are big or small, our cracks matter.

Have a Slice

Not all cakes are eatable but they sure can bring love and cheers.

I have been thinking for a long time to make this. I have seen plenty of great ideas of such treat boxes. Kind of loved the idea. I thought to myself, I will make one of my own, one day.

That one day finally happened. 🙂

 

This took me few days, covering all bases, finalizing it, but the final product was more than satisfying. I enjoyed every minute of making it. You should give it a try as well. 

Such piece of art, can serve a variety of purposes.

One can be hesitant in the start but once that wall is taken down, you can do so much.

My mother liked ‘the cake’ so much that she decided, we should use it as a decoration piece instead of using it for treats. At least, for now. 🙂

Here is a template for making this kind of a cake:

That’s all for now.

Good day, or night, whichever it is. 🙂

A Perspective

There are some things in life which make you cry like they happened, the very moment.  You feel the same level of pain, that you felt months or even years ago. Sometimes the emotions get a lot more intense than they were on that ‘actual day’. And you feel like you can never get over it.

I have been there.

You cannot turn a painful memory into a happy one. You cannot turn a loss into a gain. But you can move your focus form the gloomy picture and take notice of the brighter side.

The pain is part of this life, but so is joy. Now it depends on us, which we choose to keep in focus.
