There are things in life which are clearly visible but we refuse to see them just so we can avoid the reality, over time though those things make you notice themselves and one day or the other you gotta face reality. #JustSaying (October 5, 2015)

You go out and jog for a while. You're sweating. Beautiful weather and breeze blowing. It is peaceful. You sit down. Observe. Close your eyes. Suddenly you realize, it is such a beautiful world. (September 20, 2015)

My health went from bad to worse during April. Whenever I went to babysit him, he would look at me curiously as I sit on the sofa or lay on the bed trying to ease the pain. Later on he'd just hug me for long and say nothing or try to do funny things to make me laugh.

Within two months we had become really close, his parents told me he wouldn't eat and sleep and just wanted to meet me.

Surgery was successful and then he came to visit me with parents. All he did was to hug me, said nothing did nothing just hugged me for a long while. 

Next thing I noticed he had a chocolate in his hand, the same one I brought him sometime back and asked him to keep it under his bed so his parents won't see. 'Keep it under the bed' he said. 'No one will know I gave it to you.' For once, even I didn't have anything to say. As I moved my hands in his hair I just wished that more people, more of us grown ups can be like this kid. We have temporary emotions, we forget all the good people and the good things in our lives easily, kids don't. He was there for me, many of the people I expected to be there, weren't. It was the best example.

Then I smiled. After such a long time. I genuinely smiled. Because I knew at that very moment, I have finally found the purest of hearts. (From: Story of the Purest Heart - Raafay) (September 18, 2015)

Everyday I go out for a walk in the evening and realize how lonely my life is even with the crowd of people around but then I hear a voice saying, that's how life is supposed to be and it is the best possible life, therefore Alhamdulillah for everything. (September 7, 2015)
