"A Friday ritual. A single photo - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember" - SouleMama
You are what your dreams are made of. If you can dream, then you can accomplish. The first step to achieving something in life is to dream and aspire. My most favorite quote on dreams is "Dream and give yourself permission to envision a You that you choose to be."
On this note, let me tell you a little story. There was once a girl who lived a comfortable life. She dreamed a lot, she was ambitious and wanted to pursue many, varied career paths in life. She wanted to be a pilot, a seismologist and a clinical psychologist. While all these career options caught her eye, there was one that captured her heart. Whenever she thought about being accomplished in that particular career, she felt butterflies flutter and roses blossom. Keeping her dream a secret, she decided that she would prove her mettle during her journey of life. She started to keep a journal, she shared it with her friends and got rave reviews, pleasant hugs and many suggestions. The ones she did follow were those that her heart believed in and wanted to do, for it was a life she dreamed to experience. She started a blog and wrote. Appreciation made her feel on cloud nine. Criticism grounded her. For what she wanted to be was a WRITER. She wanted to a well published, loved and appreciated writer. :)
And that girl is none other than me (which you must have guessed by now!) :)
Yes, I got my article on 'Passion' published in an international magazine, Infinithoughts. It's by far, one of the most happiest moment in my life. I felt my dreams unfold and saw a path ahead. A path that both my heart and mind want to pursue. While becoming a pilot tops my career list at the moment, being a writer will always run parallel to every dream I have in my life. :)
Thank you God for everything. And a HUGE thank you to those read my blog and enjoy my writing. You guys make my day. :)

This week has been a fantastic one! It was a no-classes week at college, so majority of my time was spent time at eat-outs with friends, completing pending assignments, gearing up for finals week, quilling cards for loved ones, talking about movies, food and fun! This week was a complete package of fun, frolic, stress (finals week!), work and hugs! Lots of hugs, appreciation and smiles of satisfaction on many faces, which shielded the layers of stress that finals week was about to bring! :)
To sum it all up, my week's been filled with friends, books, chit-chats, writing articles, food, movies, fun and goodwill! :)
Hope it lasts! :) And yes, during these times too, I was reminded of the quote "This too will pass" and thus, managed to make as many memories possible! Life it short, and it is here to be lived. :)
As usual, two quotes to end my week:
"If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse."
Yes, you can lose somebody overnight, yes, your whole life can be turned upside down. Life is short. It can come and go like a feather in the wind.
