Having a passion is so important. It’s like having a purpose for us to live. If you don’t have a purpose for your life. Then just think about it today itself. It helps us to be happy, grow, focus ,engage our soul in it. Be consistent. you will achieve it. believe in yourself even if no one believes you.
There were two best friends, walking through the desert. At some point in the journey, they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.
The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand;
“Today my best friend slapped me in the face.”
They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone;
“Today my best friend saved my life.”
The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him;
“After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?”
The other friend replied;
“When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”
Don’t value the things you have in your life. But value who you have in your life.
Hi guys. Oh, you saw the title?! Yeah, I know. Not really a thing you want to read, but don’t worry guys this isn’t what it looks like. Oh my god, that was total cliché. So, back to the main subject, this is my book blog, and no the novel’s name is not that like who could name their book like that, no offense.
So, the books are kind of about her, I mean our one and only protagonist, Chloe. And no this is not only based on a necromancer, there are other characters like witches, sorcerers, werewolf, etc., etc. Ah, you know me guys, I love fantasy-based stories, the things that can’t be real but our own imaginations. The books are about these supernatural creatures, who are only children like 14 to 16 years old but they go through some stuff that toughen them up.
The Darkest Powers Trilogy is the 3 books series, that are going to take us to another world and spin our very imaginations.
‘Chloe Saunders used to have a relatively normal life.
But now she finds herself in the middle of some really strange situations because: ~She suddenly starts seeing dead people. ~She gets locked up in a group home for unstable teens. ~The group home isn’t what it seems.
My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.
All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don’t even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost—and the ghost saw me.
Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won’t leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a “special home” for troubled teens. Yet the home isn’t what it seems. Don’t tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? It’s up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House… before its skeletons come back to haunt me.’
Chloe Saunders, our main female protagonist, is a 15-year-old girl who just had her first period, and then she starts to see ghosts. The novel is from Chloe’s point of view and the strong female lead as you know always finds a way to get her adventures even if they are accidentals. The Lyle House is the one where the actual adventure of our Chloe and her soon-to-friends starts.
‘I wanted to walk over there. I wanted to curl up beside him, lean against him, talk to him. I wanted to know what he was thinking. I wanted to tell him everything would be okay. And I wanted him to tell me the same thing. I didn’t care if it was true or not, I just wanted to say it, to hear it, to feel his arms around me, hear the rumble of his words, that deep chuckle that made my pulse rase.’
The exciting but dangerous adventure is going to shape 15-years-old Chloe and her friends and as well as our minds. I like that the books and Chloe show us that don’t always trust things we see or hear but trust our true instinct and to protect our loved ones that steps we take, try not to regret it if those backfires, but keep going.
These two aren’t official books pictures but I quite like them, they show the beast and the human, and even if the beast is beast he is still her friend and still her protector.
Thank you very much guys for reading my silly blog, hope you like it. Stay safe. Stay fit. Good-bye.
Once in a forest, a beautiful red rose blossomed. When rose saw around he found that everyone was admiring its beauty. One of the trees said, “I wish I was as lovely as a rose.”
Rose listened to that and said, “I know I am the most beautiful flower in this forest.” To this, another flower replied, “Don’t be so proud. There are many other beautiful flowers in this forest.”
Then one day rose saw cactus and said, “What an ugly plant it is, it’s full of thorns.” Listening to this another flower replied, “Why do you say that?? Who can say what beauty is?? You have thorns too.”
Proud red rose looked angrily at that flower and said, “You cannot compare my beauty and thorns to that of cactus.” All trees and flowers around rose thought, “What a proud flower.”
With every passing day rose would say insulting things to the cactus and wanted to move away from it.
Cactus never felt bad, always used to say to rose, “God did not create any form of life without any reason.”
As time passes the weather changed and life became difficult in the forest because of no rain, rose began to wilt.
One day rose saw birds sticking their beak into cactus and then fly away refreshed. Rose was puzzled to see that. Then the tree explained to the rose that birds were getting refreshed from the water they got from cactus.
Rose asked, “Doesn’t it hurt cactus when birds make holed in it?” The tree replied, “It does but cactus doesn’t like to see bird suffer.”
Rose opened its eyes in wonder and felt ashamed for the behavior towards the cactus and felt sorry for it.
Everyone in Nature has a purpose and we should not just Judge someone just by its Appearance. We should learn to value goodness in the nature of others.
I am here today with an exciting book series. This book series is my all-time favorite. The book is very exciting and has thrill, love, drama and of course demons, well all the books in the series have it. The book completely had me from the start of first page.
As I always say fantasy is like spice in romance. And this fantasy is all the mix of it. The concept of werewolf is somewhat different but still it is exciting to discover new stories about them. We all have different ideas of them but always with an Alpha male but this book concentrates on mainly our lead female, Tessa.
The first book ‘Becoming Alpha’ is the start of the Tessa’s story.
“Tessa McCaide has a unique talent for getting into trouble. Then again, it isn’t easy for a girl with visions to ignore what she sees. Luckily Tessa and her family are leaving California and moving halfway across the country, giving her the perfect opportunity to leave her reputation as “Freaky Tessa” behind.
But Tessa doesn’t realize that kissing the wrong guy in her new Texas town could land her in far more trouble than she ever imagined. Like being forced to attend St. Ailbe’s Academy, a secret boarding school for werewolves.
Even if the wrong guy did accidentally turn her into one of “them” and doom her to attending the weirdest high school ever, Tessa can’t help her growing attraction to the mysterious Dastien Laurent.
When vampires attack St. Alibe’s and her visions pinpoint an enemy in their midst, Tessa realizes that boy drama and her newfound canine tendencies might just be the least of her problems.”
The wolves have always been in a pack with a leader and the St. Alibe’s pack is where it all started. Dustin, our male lead is the one who started it all you can say. But his reasons were reasonable. He said, ‘she is my true mate, so I couldn’t stop my wolf from biting her’. Oh, the true mate shit, it always gets me. We all want that kind of love, soulmate kind of love. Tessa and Dustin got it but no in a simple and easy way. They had to face the trial to complete their story.
But this is only starting of Tessa and Dustin’s story. There are other adventures related to their story like ‘Bruja’ and ‘Shattered Pack’ but the story only continues further. So join me with reading this adventurous book and enjoy like I did.
Thank you so much guys for reading. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
Hey guys!!! I hope you all are doing well and spreading love and kindness to others.so this blog is all about the gratitude for your life. Reading this will defiantly change your way of thinking.
It will help you to …..
1] Change your mood and gives motivation
2] It will help to focus on life
3] It will just take a very few minutes and you will have a smile on your face
4] It will help to make us realized what we have forgotten for so long
So today, I would like to share this:
Have a break and observe around yourself
The first simple step is just to take a break from this entire hectic schedule. Taking a break doesn’t mean you have to travel long and far or it doesn’t even take spending a lot of money. It a free and simple tip.
For what you can be grateful for today?
What are 3 things you are grateful for?
You can be grateful for smallest thing in your life or it can be only one person. Just don’t rely on numbers, if you have less number of grateful things. Just be grateful for it.
Try not to repeat the same things too often. Instead, try to find the new things, more things and people you can be grateful for in your life
Have a self-talk
Take time to have a positive self-talk. Appreciating yourself even for the small tasks and being grateful toward what you have and what you do. Doing this daily will eventually become your habit. It will boost you to do more work and make you happy by increasing self-confidence and self-esteem.
What 5 things that makes you happy?
That thing must be related to gratefulness. Your self-gratitude does not always have to be all about achievements at schools and colleges.
You can simply be grateful for being a good listener for your friends or having a kind heart for helping other first.
Take a look at the things which you were taking granted for so long.
Take a closer look at the very smaller things in your life. It can be even beautiful roses which I watch from my window while taking a fresh air. It’s not a huge noticeable thing, but simply it just beauty in its pink and red colors and watching them growing on a little water and sunshine and its sprinkling beauty. Its simple thing for which you can be grateful for.
Another thing I’m grateful for this days –when a thought comes in my mind there are so many people who don’t get food even for 2 time a day and I’m so grateful for it –that I gets all this delicious .
What one thing which I may usually take granted that I can be grateful for?
Observe small thing and daily thing that you can appreciate
making it habit
Small tips doing this daily will become your habit:
When you start your morning just think for that 3 small things you are grateful for. It will just take less than 5 minutes for it.
While in the evening just have a replay of your day, and think 3 to 4 things you are grateful for about your day.
Doing this daily makes me feel better and happy for myself.
Try these tiny commitments every single day for a week and see the impact on your thoughts, feeling and life.
You will feel much better for yourself.
Expressing your gratitude.
Don’t just keep the gratitude within yourself. Expressing it will make much better difference. Making people in your life happy too- by expressing how grateful you are for having them in your life.
Bonus of this is their smile and joy in their eyes when you tell them this will make you happier too.
That gratitude just can be a few words, small sentence. But it will be a huge impact on someone’s day, week or even life sometimes.
So let’s, take a few minutes from your life and tell your lovely people of your life.
Tell them how grateful your for having them in your life .tell them tonight or type a message or just call them, video calling can be possible now a days while telling them you will be able to watch there smile on face or try writing a letter to someone.
Thank you so much for your love and support. Stay positive and stay fit. Keep spreading love.!!!!!!
Hey there guys!! Long-time no see. But Here I am today with my favourite books that I wanted to share with you. I have always liked the books Kirsty Moseley has written, not that I have read all her books. But the books I am showing today are my all-time favourite books.
To tell you the secret I have read those books probably more than 10 times and I really would like to show you those books. As per my observations I really am sucker for romance so those books have so much cheese in them I can’t even say it. So let’s get to the books:
1. The boy who sneaked in my bedroom window
Liam James, boy next door and total douchebag, is my brother’s best friend. I can’t stand him. Well, that’s not strictly true, at night I see a side of him that no one else does. Every night Liam becomes my safe haven, my protector, the one to chase the demons of my abusive childhood away and hold all the broken pieces of me together.
He’s cocky, he’s arrogant, and he’s also some sort of playboy in training. With his ‘hit it and quit it’ mentality, he’s the last person you’d want to fall in love with. I only wish someone had told my heart that…
Amber, the books’ protagonist is a girl who has past that has always haunted her and Liam too has one or two skeletons in him closet. Let’s see how they find love and how they overcome the difficulty of her past.
“I thought maybe if I met someone else that I’d be able to stop thinking about you, but it didn’t work. Nothing works. When I am with them, I wish it was you. When they laugh or talk, I can’t help but compare them to your voice or your laugh. It’s always been you; it’ll always be you, angel.”
Real life is not all rainbows and sunshine even if we want that. This book can give hope that you’ll make it through the darkness. No one likes tragedy.
I loved watching her overcome the childhood, and find true love out of all that.
2. Bond mates
Tyler Morgan is a 17 year old girl who has had a hard life, her and her drunk mother are used to moving and starting over.
Tyler doesn’t let herself make friends anymore – what’s the point if she has to uproot and move when HE comes for her again?
When she starts over again for the 6th time she doesn’t expect it to last long same as always, but this time she meets someone who she doesn’t want to say goodbye to. Sean Houston is 18, gorgeous, popular, sweet, talented, funny, captain of the football team. Oh yeah and he’s also a shifter.
Taylor always has been fierce and when he comes into her life now she has something to live for other than fear of her past daemons. Let’s see the story of a girl who has nothing more to lose come to all the things that matters to her lose and a boy with his new world.
3. Always you
“’I love you. I want to be with you, but I’ll be here for whatever you need, you need a friend I’ll be your friend, you need someone to hold you I’ll be that too, whatever you want I’ll do anything’, he said quietly, rubbing my cheek tenderly.”
Clay Preston is the most desirable guy in school, and boy does he know it!
Movie star looks paired with a quarterback’s body, he’s every girl’s dream guy–but not mine. To me, he’s simply my best friend, the one who has been there as far back as I can remember.
Our relationship has always been easy, playful and affectionate, but after one lost bet, and one payment in the form of a kiss, the dynamic of everything changes…
Riley and Clay have been best friends since diapers. But Clay have been in love with Riley even when he doesn’t know what exactly love is. This may seem like a daily-life story but I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly.
The young love these days don’t know any limits, they do whatever they want and they listen to their heart and that’s how courageous every person should be with the person they love.
Love is like an adventure of its own. It can be dangerous but without the risks you can never know what it actually feels like, the one should have courage and not just listen to your heart and guts but ability to think rationally.
I know it’s all philosophical shit so that is the ending of this blog.
Thank you guys for your time. Stay healthy. Take care.
I hope you all are doing well. I guess the time has came for the part 2 of our post. I have posted motivational quotes some time ago. Those are beautifully written in calligraphy. I usually use them for wallpaper, watching it over time to time makes me remind me of my goals, and helps me to be on track to achieve my goals.
Don’t you feel energetic when you read the quotes somewhere or just scrolling through social media and catching the sight of it. Sit back and enjoy the post!
So here they are the part 2 of the motivational quotes:
“Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward. If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down.” ― Roy T. Bennett
As Roy Bennett says love yourself and keep pushing yourself forward and that’s gonna inspire you and grow the self esteem and built the confidence in yourself in a new way.
Thank you so much for your love and support. Stay positive and stay fit. Keep spreading love.
I never believed in love at first sight until I saw you. I used to think how can people fall in love at the very first sight or how can they think that they are in love just after one glance. I always had a question in mind; is love at first sight possible or it’s just a mirage? And I got the answer the moment I met you for the first time. You were a complete stranger to me, yet I fell in love with you. I was completely amazed with the fact that I am in love with a stranger whom I met for the first time. The moment I met you, I felt an immediate connection as if we were destined to meet, it was so strong and mutual that I was just drawn towards you. I fell in love with that instant eye contact that we shared and the way you blushed faintly. That moment is forever craved in my heart. It’s not like I fell in love with your looks or your appearance but I fell in love with your soul. Sometimes when you meet that special someone, you just know that’s him. It’s like your brain is sending you the message that he is the one and you just blindly trust your instincts because you are in love. And somewhere there is faith that your instincts are always correct. The moment when your eyes met mine, I fell in love and the moment I saw you smile, it gave me butterflies in my stomach, and I loved it and believed that this is the smile I want to see forever. The moment when you laugh on stupid, silly jokes, I fell in love with you. And that moment when you poured your heart out in front of me in spite of being a stranger, I fell deeply in love with you. I fell in love with your sweet, kind gestures, your caring behavior, your carefree attitude, your positivity, your sincerity, and honesty; I fell in love with all of you, not only the best version of you but also the bad side of you including your scars. I always keep thinking about how much I love talking to you. I feel like playing the replay button and listening to your voice constantly. I keep thinking about how admirable you look when you smile and how much I love your laugh that I just keep staring at you. And the way you look at me is indeed the most fascinating moment of my life. Whenever I meet you, I feel like pausing the time. I don’t want the time to end instead spend more and more time with you. It’s not exactly ‘love at first sight’ but our souls meeting each other. When two souls fall in love, they yearn to be close to each other. It just feels right to be with each other. And I know one thing for sure that you are the best thing that has ever happened to me.
