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?
I don’t get to upload my art work that often. But I would like to share some of my recent work with you guys (to whoever it may interests).Maybe, because I am a sharing type ;). I will be looking forward to your views or suggestions or whatever is it that you want to say.
Back to the art work. Its about my laptop (lapi). It is about 7, 8 years old; works pretty well, Alhumdulillah. But its outer look, tells another story or more like told another story. You can say, I am kind of a clumsy person. 😉
My family was thinking of buying me a new one when I will start with my studies again but I gave it some thought and came to this decision that I don’t need a new lapi. It is working pretty good so far, there was only one issue and that was with the outer look. I think I am good at covering up the outer flaws, so, that is what I did.
I used a patterned crepe paper, B&W print out images (brightened with markers and colors), some glittery tape and some flowers (used as a accessory for clothes decor.)
People are not your personal punching bags. They can be million things but never this. Just because you are hurting, doesn’t mean that you are allowed to scar others or if it is raining upon you, doesn’t give you any right to push others in the puddles as well.
There are people among us, who are bleeding, who are dragging their lives around, who are barely alive but still, somehow they find a way to ease others’ paths. They are quite few, almost near to none, but THEY ARE among us. So, you see, it is possible; being nice to people, even when one is hurting, is not some ‘alien concept’, rather, it is the time when it matters the most.
You wondering why? Well, anyone can be nice and gentle when they are in high spirits but when one’s world is crashing down and they still remember to be kind and gentle, can be quite a challenge.
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.
You have toSTOPsearchingWHYat some point in your life. It will only drive youcrazy, then where will you be? Sometimes you have to accept things as they are. Sometimes, things are just suppose to happen. No reason required.
