Work for it!

Hey readers,
Why is it that we humans have the tendency to give up anything so easily and to get mad when we don't get something right the first time? Getting something right in the first shot is called being lucky and that doesn't necessary mean you are good at it.You have to work hard for everything that you want in life.


“Nothing that’s worthwhile is ever easy. Remember that.”
 - Nicholas Sparks


Also, never take anything for granted. Be grateful for the things that you have for which you once worked hard. Sometimes we forget how the smallest things can be so special and mean so much to us. We need to care more about our future goals. From where we look now it might seem far and that is probably why we think it is going to take a while and then we end up being tired of chasing our goal. But our strength is our motivation. We should go back and remember why we started thinking about that goal and what motivated us in the first place. And that will give us a reason to keep going and achieve that goal. It's never too late to achieve that goal. Time doesn't matter. It's the results that counts.

Cleaning my blog!

Hey readers,

After a few years of blogging, you might want to go ahead and look back at your old posts and compare them with your new ones. You will see some changes, some improvement or even get new ideas based on those old blog posts. I think it would be nice to clean up your blog once in a while and that is exactly what I am doing right now. 

How I clean up my blog?

I update my old blog posts.

Sometimes I just feel like what I wrote before could be said in a better way and so I update the writing style and make sure that there is no spelling mistakes. I might also add up more information or change the style of that post because of a new idea in mind. 

Have the right posts in the right categories/tags

I do feel like I have a lot of labels and I just realize some of my posts are in two different categories and so I am cleaning it all up. I also added and removed a few labels.

Assure that every links still work

I have links that are taken from elsewhere and it is possible that for some reason the link doesn't work anymore. For example, the website from where I got a link does not exist. Therefore, it is important to make sure that all links still work.


Assure that the sources of images that are taken from elsewhere still work

Along with links, I also have images that does not belong to me. And when I do, I make sure I have the source written somewhere in the post. But it is also important to make sure that you have the right source for a specific image.


Add or delete things from the sidebar

I want to keep my sidebars simple and not so overwhelming. People who are interested in your blog will mostly look at your sidebar to subscribe to your mailing list or to follow your blog and your social media accounts. The sidebars should be presentable but shouldn't have too much either.




PS: While updating your old blog posts, you can always look in the comments section and if someone left their blog link then you can have a quick visit and leave a nice comment on theirs too! :)

Filled with happiness

Hey readers,

Infuse your life with happiness and I promise you that you'll feel more alive! You got to do something that makes you happy and not let anyone discourage you. I know you hear this everywhere but it is really important to remind people to be true to their own self. So, my advice for you is to BE YOURSELF AND BE HAPPY! :)

Even the little things in life can make you so happy that it becomes a big thing itself and the level of happiness is incredible. And as the quote sums it perfectly, "put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success".

Welcoming a new month with heart!

Welcome May,

The stress of April is gone. Everything that was on the schedule is done. And now I am here to welcome this new month openly. It's the beginning of new ideas, a new schedule, a new to do list and simply a continuity of a beautiful year.

I have already a few things planned for this month and I am also hoping to have some more "me time". Oh, how time flies! I feel like just a few days ago I was organizing my planner for the month of April and here I am now writing a to do list for May.

May have started today, by giving water to the plants and with a little cold breeze, leaving people wearing their skinny jackets. This is such a perfect weather to drink tea!

I sincerely hope that all of you have a great month.

May each day of coming month bring many reasons for you to celebrate! -Unknown

Happy New Month! :)

* I just wanted to thank my lovely readers to get me to 100 followers on bloglovin'. You're awesome! Thank you for all the love.

A reflection

Hey readers,

Today is a beautiful sunny day out here. I am really enjoying this day even though at the moment all I am doing is typing on my laptop and listening to some music. It makes me happy just knowing that I have time to sit and write about everything and anything. It is important to give yourself some time in this very busy life although some people might even hardly do that. It is good to be productive but you need at least one lazy day in a week to remind yourself that YOU are living YOUR life and that you should have control over it.

I don't know about you but I have a feeling this week is going to be amazing. It is not even because I have nothing to do. My schedule is more flexible this week but I do have an exam coming up soon and got a few assignments to hand it but I still have a great feeling about this week. The great weather is surely a bonus.

I really hope this week's weather stays beautiful as it is today although we might have a little cold breeze tomorrow but that is still fine.

I hope you guys have an amazing week and don't forget to smile from time to time! :)

Who is the real Champion?

Is it only the person who won first place in any competition who is a Champion? And what about all of the other people who tried their best? And what about the people who did not give up? And also what about those who took the decision to participate in a competition?

I believe that a REAL champion is one who has ambition. When you make a plan and stick to it until you achieve what you want is what I call being a real champion. This is where motivational quotes  are saying it all.

"Good things come to those who work hard"

"Nothing worth having comes easy"

And of course there is much more inspiring quotes but you get the point. It is easy to get lucky when trying to do something for the first time but you only know the real value of passing something when you actually work hard for it!

Don't let luck be the answer of the question "how did you do it?".

So if you are one of those people who is willing to reach up the sky, remember that sky is the limit. Go and get it!



This was part of the daily prompt!
Word of the day: Champion

Places I want to visit

Hey readers,
I am sure that everyone has their lists of places they would want to visit and here is mine. These are just some of them that are worth it. These places have a beautiful story behind them which is absolutely amazing. Read along my travel wishlist and you might fall in love like I did! :)


 Dubai Mall

This mall is one of the largest malls ever and it contains a whole new world in itself. There is an aquarium and an underwater zoo. There is also an ice rink, cinemas, rain forest cafe and much more. You just can't get bored in there. Definitely a place to wander.

2. The Shard

Being in London, The Shard is also a beautiful place to have amazing views. It contains offices and restaurants and it is just a really great atmosphere. It would be a great place to sit and relax.

Tokyo Skytree, Japan

I have always wanted to go Japan for many reasons and here are some places that I would love to      visit in Tokyo. If watching the view from the Skytree is as beautiful as it looks in this picture then it's totally worth it.

This is all about a beautiful story of a dog and his loyalty to his master. This statue was build in Hachiko's honor and it's a must see. The story will make you cry! ;0

Because why wouldn't you go to an amusement park? Enjoying rides and having fun is always awesome! And this place is also very greenery. :D

The Lotus temple is a lotus in itself which is beautiful. This temple is filled with the beauty of architecture and fine art and is also religious. I absolutely love the design.

Let us bring our future closer to us

edited : source

We often dream and forget that those dreams can become a reality if we are willing to work hard to achieve them. Believing in yourself is the first step to reaching out for your goals and dreams. You have to be ready to face what ever comes in front of you and pass that obstacle. You might think you failed at times but you didn't. You are just trying. Keep trying. Keep going. You are getting there. No matter how big your dream is, it is yours and it is possible to make it a reality. But, remember do not give up. That is one rule to the game. We all have a dream. Let's get it!

Don't do it!

 
Don't give up because of one bad chapter in your life. Keep going... your story doesn't end here.
