WaltzingMarieLate bloomer?

I often feel stuck about this goal, because I’m not very inspired, and I feel I have waisted any sort of talent I might have had a teenager. Now the big 30 is coming in a few years, and I haven’t produced anything worthy.

Tonight, I came across those lines by Elizabeth Gilbert, the writer of Eat, Pray, Love :

“Here’s another thing to consider. If you always wanted to write, and now you are A Certain Age, and you never got around to it, and you think it’s too late…do please think again. I watched Julia Glass win the National Book Award for her first novel, “The Three Junes”, which she began writing in her late 30’s. I listened to her give her moving acceptance speech, in which she told how she used to lie awake at night, tormented as she worked on her book, asking herself, “Who do you think you are, trying to write a first novel at your age?” But she wrote it. And as she held up her National Book Award, she said, “This is for all the late-bloomers in the world.” Writing is not like dancing or modeling; it’s not something where – if you missed it by age 19 – you’re finished. It’s never too late. Your writing will only get better as you get older and wiser. If you write something beautiful and important, and the right person somehow discovers it, they will clear room for you on the bookshelves of the world – at any age. At least try.”

I found it inspiring, full of hope and worthy of sharing! 1 week ago

flower005Mesmerize your loving mother with the essence of flower

Our first relationship in life is with our mother. She is our foundation and the relationship to her is the most important one for all children. We learn about relating from the intimate interaction and bond that we have with our mother. Mothers are everything for us when we are small…our lives revolve around her. For everything that we need we call mother. To protect us from all perceivable dangers we want her around us. To take us out we hold her arms. She is the focal point of our lives, the greatest human being in the world or should we say divinity on earth. On the special occasion pay tribute to your mother – the greatest blessing of God on you. There is simply no way we can ever really thank mother for all she has done for us. She is the one who will be awake all night when we are sick. Praying to God to make us well and be ever ready to bear the pain that we may be experiencing. She is the one to wake up early in the morning to make the nicest Tiffin. They would cook all sorts of things so that we be strong and healthy. Mothers infect, worry more for our examinations than we must. They would take pains to complete our school projects leaving all other works behind while we play around with friends or just while away time watching movies. Mothers are the superheroes, the hospitals, the finest five star restaurants, the nurturer, and the one that children can turn to at any given time. Mothers have the most challenging and the most rewarding job in the world. To be a mother means commitment and sacrifice, the greatest of commitment and sacrifice. Mother’s day is a momentous occasion that celebrates motherhood. So, it is fitting that one holds a special day party to celebrate in most fitting way possible. Mothers toil day and night and sacrifice much of their lives for their young ones. It is therefore a great thing to celebrate this special day in the company of your mother and other family members. It is all for a worthy and memorable occasion. Make your mother feel special on this day every year. Gifting each other on festivals is another way of showing importance for each other. Different online site provides a lot of different gifts for every different occasion like Marriage, Birthday, Anniversary, and Father’s day, Mother’s Day, Valentines Day. There are a lot of sections and categories where you find many gifts for each and every different occasion. The people of Bangalore now send their warm wishes and intimate love just in a single click. 1 month ago

Thomas RyanPrompts.

I picked up this app for the iPad a few weeks ago called Prompts. I’m using it as a way to entice myself to write little snippets everyday, instead of trying to sit down and write pages and pages every once in awhile. It’s great because it’s got a clean interface AND it gives this “starter/sample” piece of sentence that starts your idea but lets you finish it. You just put yourself into the idea and before you know if you’ve got a few paragraphs. Dig it. 1 month ago
