Jab tak hai jaan :)

I have so many things to say about this movie...
But all I can remember is the dialogue which touched my soul :)

Its a story of love..
undying love that a man had for a woman
unflinching love that a woman had for a man
and unending faith that God had on their love

love that breaks you, but still keeps you together...
love that creates distances but still brings you closer....
love that is true and forever....
and I learnt that if you have the power to love like that then God makes sure that your love finds its way :)
all you have to do is to just hang in there... and wait.. wait for your time...

:) :) love this movie :)

Barfi!!!!! :)

I am writing a post after a long time J well, because I have watched a wonderful beautiful movie after a long time…
Barfi, actually there are so many things I loved about the movie…

First things I loved that life always offers you second chances, its upto us to take them, and we can always take a second chance when we let go completely of what was our first chance, if you know what I mean J. When we truly believe that tomorrow is a new day with new priorities, with new opportunities. When we are no longer scared to risk it again!!! We just have to give love a chance, and magic! It happens!

And that the biggest risk in life is not taking any risks!! Makes so much sense J

Also loved one dialogue in the movie the most, that when we fall in love, we do so without thinking, we never decide and love… it just happens, so when we fall in love without thinking, why do we think so later, but not simply just love J

What I also loved about the movie is, when you love a person, that person is your priority, and it doesn’t matter what priorities people in your past had, you would always shift your priorities. It is impossible to believe in this, considering we don’t trust the “future”, but take examples from your past. Consider a friend with whom you shared some really great moments, memorable happy one’s, but now though you shared so much happiness then, doesn’t hold the same priority, the only people who are your priority are the people whom you love, and who love you back, people who respect you for the person you are… and love you for the person you are always!!
And yes, if you give love a chance(again!) it will surely come into your life… J

The movie is about being happy always, finding happiness in small little things… happiness doesn’t depend on the place, situation, circumstances, other people’s decisions, your happiness depends on you, and you can be happy if you want to be happy J its as simple as that J just smile, be grateful for what life has offered, and be happy J the choice has always been and is yours.

Also loved the trust test in the movie J when you trust a person, you never think of anything else, you simply just trust the person…… it touched my heart so much, when Jhilmil doesn’t leave his side, actually she is unaware of anything else, J she just knows that Barfi is with her, and that’s what matters to her J that scene is my favorite one J

A letter to God..

I remembered pouring my heart to you, good and bad, happiness and sadness, excitement and anxiety, just the way I am feeling, being myself, with no pretence, no fake emotions, just me, because you know me through and through, you have created me, you have planned every moment of my life, and I also remember you telling me then, I will be with you always and I will always love you for the person you are and the person you will grow to become, you are mine...... and today when I enter the same church after 3 and a half years, I hear your voice in my heart again, I will be with you, Maria, I will never leave you, and so it has been God, you have never left me, and you have always answered that one prayer that I pray, Thy Will be done, now and always....... :)

It doesn't matter where you have been, it matters where you are going... :) :)

Hello guys,  I know its long time since I have written on my blog, but today I so want to share with ul the amazing retreat that I went to last weekend.

Ok first I wasn’t going to go for this “theology of the body” retreat, I was like ok, “I-don’t-think-this-is-going-to-make-a-difference-in-my-life”, or “I-don’t-need-this-in-my-life”, or “I-know-everything-that-is-important-to-me”. But alas I was proven wrong, right left and center.

I decided to go on Thursday. And I am so glad I went. I can’t thank God and all my friends enough who have acted as instruments to bring me to this retreat and closer to God, to know that yes I am a precious child of God, I was created by Him, in His own image, He has a perfect plan for me, if I trust him completely he will work his plan in my life.

There were various questions in life that keep bothering us:

Is there a real purpose to life and if so, what is it?

Yes we were created in God’s image, and God is love, so we were created to love, to give ourselves for the greater glory of God. Through our actions, words and deeds, we ultimately show love. Like the Blessed Mother Teresa said, we can’t do great things, but small things with great love.

What is love?
True love is when you want the good of other’s over your ownself.
True love is Free, Total, Faithful and Fruitful. If none of these conditions are satisfied then you know it is not true love…

Then one of the speakers gave a very good example of how we view ourselves, of sometimes how we judge ourselves, how we so many times fail to forgive ourselves and move on…

She took a brand new 100R note in her hand and showed it to the participants. Asked them if anyone needed it, obviously everyone wanted the money J then, she crumpled it, stamped on it and asked them the same question, but yes everyone still wanted it J because it was still worth 100R, then she asked them even if I put it under my armpit would ul still want it? And everyone was like yes, we still want it.
She even made it wet, and asked them do ul still want it? And alas everyone still wanted it, because whatever she did with the note, the “value” of the note wasn’t reduced, it was still a 100R.

The same is with us, when God created us, we were new, but as time passed and we knew the ways of the world and the pleasures of the world, we sinned, we were crumpled, sometimes by others and sometimes by our own spirits, we chose to walk on the darker paths in life, we felt miserable about taking the wrong decisions in life. We all go through the difficult times in life, And at those particular moments, we make decisions based on a lot of factors. Some of us wonder why me God, and some of us wonder, How could I not see it that time? How come I was so foolish? You probably wouldn't react the same way now and that's a good thing. It shows that you've grown. You've learned something from it.  But you had to go through it to get the lesson.

Our lives are about the decisions we make, about the choices we make in life, so if we have gone through a difficult time, we can decide now about the choice we are going to make today about it. What are we going to do about our lives? Are we going to learn from our mistakes and begin a new day? Or are we going to go back to where we were? The choice is ours.
