Everything in this world is an outcome of love. We make things because we love making them. Whether its a baby, a machine, a car, a camera - someone somewhere in this world is so much in love with something that he creates that. Creation is nothing but an outcome of love.
Love is what we live for & we live on. All of us thrive on love. Right from our birth we need love. Even as a baby we need love to grow. Love not only gives comfort to the baby but also secures him in this big unknown world. As we get older, we still need love to understand ourselves and others. Love makes a connection between you and people you like being with. It helps you in bonding with people and helps you grow as a person. It gives you the inclination to learn, makes you understand life, helps you explore the world, helps you create everything you love!
Love is what we grow on and grow with. In absence of love, there wouldn't be as much beauty in this world. As a person, you are blessed to grow as much love within yourself as possible. You are blessed to share that love with people. You are bestowed with powers to express that love in ways more than one. You are designed to be a body of love - growing and spreading it all along.
Give your child a world full of love - they are like little seeds that you sow today. Years later, when they grow, they would beam with love. All that love you create within your heart will only leave you feeling full of love and pure joy. Give complete love to everything you like in your life. As you do so, you'll be filled with immense happiness and boundless love.
As you grow in life, let love be your water, your sunshine. Grow on love - its the only element you need to live happily.
(One can argue about money being the actual requirement of life but that's not true. You can mint money using brains, but to grow love, you need to use your heart & your heart is what gives you your life!)

Once upon a time & One fine day... so goes every fairy tale! And do they exist? Of course they do. Fairy tales are all but magic. And Magic truly exists on this Earth! Yet to see magic with your own eyes? Wait for your very own 'One Fine Day'!
Life is a real fairy tale. It has all the moments that we think exist only in fairy tales. Its just that we don't really bother to look at it that way! We take it for granted that there would be up and downs in life and don't really make time to reflect upon what each of these indicate or teach us. Every person goes through various phases of life. The phases may usher utmost peace, joy, love & celebration or it may bring in upheaval of some kind. However, each phase comes with its own learning. It teaches you something for sure, shows you why something was so good, tells you why something was just not meant for you, gifts you something that's just right for you, offers something that couldn't have been better, makes you a stronger person, gives you insight into what you would have otherwise missed, takes you into the space you love the most.
And all this begins with a 'One Fine Day'! Just reflect back on your life and think about something that really changed you and your life for the better. Sometimes we do have to go through some upheavals to understand that we are meant for a different space, person or situation. However, some years later, that very chaotic phase of life would seem like the most valuable time of your life. It would have changed you and your life for the best.
Whether you leave your loved one, precious possession or a great place - the change is meant for your betterment. You may not realize it at that moment, but can always reflect on it a few years later. And you will certainly see the magic! A magic that brought you closer to something that's best for you, magic that distanced you from something so that you don't stagnate, magic that taught you something valuable, magic that made you a stronger & better person. That magic is what fairy tales are made of. Of course fairy tales don't talk about the nitty gritties of daily life - they just have a rough beginning & a happy ending. But so do you! No matter how many rough patches you go through, just know that 'One fine day' everything will be alright.
We all narrate, 'Oh & one fine day this is what happened...' and we seem to happily accept that change. Each of us have that 'One Fine Day' in our life. No matter how many people, precious things, precious moments you may have to sacrifice, you will always come to your very own 'One fine day' in your life. And it will always be for your good.
One fine day, you will know that your life may have begun on a rough note, but its definitely heading towards magic & happiness. Cherish that happiness, that magic, that joy. Celebrate the magical change, for its always full of surprises and awesomeness! After all that's what all fairy tales do - celebrate magic!
One Fine Day, you'll look back and say, 'Well & then... one fine day...'

Time to pull down curtains on the year 2013, time to usher in the new performer. Every year plays a new act, bringing a host of emotions along. Showcasing a new scenario, the New Year gives you something new to wonder about, making you feel an emotion in a new way, giving you new realizations, new hopes, new tears, new smiles, new relief, new anxiety & above anything else, new wonderful surprises! Its an act you watch all along your life, with every new year being a new performer. Every year being a new reason to rejoice in your 'seat' as you watch your own brand new & beautiful act play in front of your eyes. Notice how, all along, as you watch, the 'Joy' to discover the next act/scene never ceases to thrill you.
New Year is like a secret gift, packaged attractively in a beautiful wrapping paper. But there's a fix. Its a huge gift, with tiny, million little gifts hidden within. You keep opening it all along, finding a new treasure for yourself. Notice how, all along, as you discover one little gift after another, the 'Joy' never leaves you. The sense of excitement, happiness & joy to find that new gift, every single day, never ceases to grow in your heart.
New Year is like a 365 page book, all new and blank. Every single page awaits its colors. Every single page offers you a new way to play with colors, ideas, thoughts, expressions. Every page offers an opportunity! Every page gives you new 'Joy' to begin a new art.
Before you usher your very own New Year, you think of new resolutions... No matter how long your resolution list is, there's one resolution that 'Should' stay on your list, forever!
Your decision to be Happy!
Just as its meant to be.
