Nominee:

Ok, I am going to share one of my favorite paragraph from Bible today.

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

–The Bible (NIV)

There is a song by Don Moen inspired by this same verse. I heard it first time when I was a kid and fell in love with it. There are times when you are tired and exhausted, when you just want to give up but we forget that God is always there with His hand stretched out to us so that we would just hold It and He’d get us back up on our feet. We don’t have to do everything on our own. We don’t have to deal with life alone. God is always there for us. Let’s not forget it.

Take good care of yourselves and each other. Loads of love.

3 Day Quote Challenge : Day 3

Hello there.! How are you doing? Hope you had great weekend so far.

So It’s the third and last day of the 3 day quotes challenge. 😦 I would like to thank AKIRAA again for this nomination. I am thinking of keeping up with these quote posts may be not daily but once a week. Let’s see.

So today’s quote is by Marina Abramovic who is a performance artist.

I am not a therapist. I am not a spiritual leader. These elements are in the art: it is therapeutic, spiritual, social and political – everything. It has many layers. But art has to have many layers. If it doesn’t, then forget it.

Marina Abramovic

She’s so amazing I might write a different post about her. I was watching one of her interview and they were talking about art and it’s interpretation. And how performance art is different than the other forms of art. And then she says these words and they were stuck in my head.
I have always thought that there are things and events(moments) in our life and everyone interpret them in their way as there are different sides and different mind sets and different point of views. So I try to never ever make up my mind about them before fully paying attention and understanding all of those views. And I somehow connected these two things in my head. And then I heard her say,

All my inspiration comes from life. That’s how it never stops, in a way.

Marina Abramovic

And that’s when I realized how simplest things in life are so amazing that it will leave you speechless if you’d just pay attention in the moment. Life itself is the most amazing art. Life isn’t in the past or in the future. Life exists in the present moment, in now, in here. Only thing one need to do is take a deep breath and clear own’s head and live in the moment. Then there won’t be shortage of inspiration in life. Life will be full of amazing new experiences.

BTW The Rules Are:

  1. Post 3 of your favorite quotes each per day for 3 recurrent days. The quotes can be of any other people or it may come straight from your own heart.
  2. Nominate 3 or more bloggers with each post to challenge them.
  3. Don’t forget to utter a thankful word to the person who nominated you.

Nominations:

I have got two quotes today. I hope I’m not breaking some major rule here. I don’t know if I make sense back there. I hope I don’t seem like some crazy person yapping about things. Life itself fascinates me and I had an opportunity to share about it today so that’s what I tried to do.

Oh, do visit all the lovely people I’ve linked in this post. If you shall like their blog, follow them. Take good care of yourselves. Have fun

TUDles..!! ❤ ❤ ❤ …!!!

3 Days Quote Challenge: Day 2

Hello there.! So It’s the second day of the 3 day quotes challenge. I would like to thank AKIRAA again for this nomination. I hope you all are enjoying this as well because I sure am.

So today I am sharing this quote from one of my favorite show Grey’s Anatomy. I am one of this grown up who shows that she has outgrown her fairy tale world but secretly hopes that someday it will come true(No matter how silly-childish that may sound). And I wish it does not just for me but for everyone. Because I am sure everybody has their own version of fairy tales which they might wish it to be their reality someday. And today’s post is for all the dreamers who still has courage to dream. I wish you all your dreams. I wish you all happiness and love and fairy tale.

You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what your life would be, white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close you could taste them, but eventually you grow up, one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is its hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true.

– Dr. Meredith Grey (Grey’s Anatomy)

BTW The Rules Are:

  1. Post 3 of your favorite quotes each per day for 3 recurrent days. The quotes can be of any other people or it may come straight from your own heart.
  2. Nominate 3 or more bloggers with each post to challenge them.
  3. Don’t forget to utter a thankful word to the person who nominated you.

Nominations:

I hope you enjoyed this post. And I hope that you visit all the blogs I have linked. They’re all lovely people. Send them some love.
No matter how much you grow up, try and keep your faith in your dreams, your fairy tales. You never know when it may come true.

Take care of yourselves. Have a lovely weekend.

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
― Robert Frost

I love this quote because it’s blunt and frank and it is not too cheesy positive still it isn’t negative either. No matter what you go through in life, it’s never the end. It’s a chapter of your life. And the next one will start soon. I like the quote because it doesn’t say it’s going to be easy or all fairy tale. It kind of tells you to pick yourself up and keep going. It such a simple quote that you can interpret it in your way and make the most of it. Like a metaphor.! At least that’s how I see it and that’s why I like this one.

BTW The Rules Are:

  1. Post 3 of your favourite quotes each per day for 3 recurrent days. The quotes can be of any other people or it may come straight from your own heart.

My Attempt On: If you should live again, who would you like to be? A king? A queen? Famous Bill Gates? or? Why?

Wow..! If I can live again who would I be?!

I would love to be someone from the 1960s. A house wife! Or even better a Parisian girl who would talk art and visit museums and have her coffee with some puffed pastry dish I can’t speak name of. And Who would be in her cool stylish outfits. wow!

There are actually so many things that I would love to be or would wanna be.

I could honestly live in Dr. Who’s show.hehe

But I don’t want to miss out my life at all. if I have to choose instead of this life than No Thank you would be my answer. If I can live two times or more(which really can’t happen) I have so many wishes.

To answer the Why! It’s because I like those ideas of having different kind of life than I have. It’s not that I’m not happy with my life but I have tendency to think about random stuff and really weird random stuff plus the whole creative imagination takes to whole another level. You know what I mean.!

(ooohh.. 3 mins left.! hehe I’m enjoying this)

BTW I think I do that sometimes. Live different life. When I read shortstory books novels I go through the whole experience like I live that life. Is it weird! I hp[e not! hope, I meant hope back there.!!

(oh 1 last min)

Can’t think of anything really! This is it I guess.! *smiles*

TAG: 9 Tumblr Question Challenge

Hey there!

How are you doing? Having good day??(It will be so cool if someday people would actually answer me in comment section that, “Yea, I’m having great day 🙂 ” or “No, It just sucks 😡 ” or anything.) I hope you all are having good day.

So, you might know that I love reading TAG posts and challenges and so I found this super cool tumblr account who has list of TAG challenges. And I found this 9 question challenge which has really nice questions. Honestly I want to read answers of other bloggers as I find it best way to communicate and get to know them. So I will write down my answers and tag some bloggers.(If you’re tagged and you don’t want to participate than don’t and if you’re not tagged and still wanna participate, consider yourself tagged.) You can make a post on it or you can write in comment section, whatever you find comfortable.

LET THE CHALLENGE BEGIN

1. What’s your definition of beauty?
(I really believe that “Beauty is in the eye of beholder.”)
About my view on beauty. I find that the people who are comfortable with their flaws are most beautiful people (may be because it’s so difficult. I am not that comfortable with my flaws and that’s why the blog is called ‘The Ugly Duckling’s Life’). And of course a good heart and intellectual mind is just lovely.

2. Have you ever change your appearance or personality when meeting someone new?
No. May be personality, a tiny bit. I mean I can’t be entirely myself when I’m meeting someone new for the first time. I’m usually shy. But once I get comfortable with someone I’m crazy weird.(Now I can’t be that, can I?)

3. When’s the last time you dedicated your time to do homework, project, etc?
If I consider blog post as a project than I’m doing it right now. If I think about school work it would be last month before final submission of our work.

4. What’s your fears? Did you overcome those fears?
(Where do I begin.!)
Ok, seriously, Height, Water, bugs. I’m ok with fear of height and water as long as I have someone I trust around me. But fear of bugs is still there. I don’t think it’s going away anytime soon.

5. What’s the appropriate age to marry someone you love?
Any age. As long as two people fully understand the meaning of marriage it’s fine.(of course you have to be legally old enough to get married).

6. Have you ever done anything extreme over the years?
Umm..

(thinking…)

(still thinking………)

I can’t think of anything. I tried to scare off the lizard yesterday.(If that counts.!) My heart was pounding out of my chest.

7. List your dream team. (Put together 5 celebrities, athletes, fictional characters etc you would like to see work with someday)
Channing Tatum, Hulk, Vin Diesel,Jim Carrey, Tweety.(weirdest, I know.)

8. Have you or someone ever stood up to someone?
Yes. There was this mean teacher in school when I was in 11th Standard. I actually thought he was psycho.

9. What’s the most difficult decision you had to make?
If I should let myself forgive someone I really hated. I have actually never hated anyone but that person. Now I don’t hate him. Still haven’t forgiven. But getting there.

The Bloggers I wanna see answer these questions are

4UTU
Recipes From Molly
wandering story teller
ENCOURAGING LIFE
Random Writings on the Bathroom Wall
DREAM BIG, DREAM OFTEN
Notes from the U.K

Loads of love to you all. Take good care of yourselves.

TUDles..!

P.S.
TAG, You’re it!

TAG: Perfect Imperfections

So the video that I’ve shared here is from my really favorite ladies The Luxy Sister named Mimi and Leyla. They own the hair extension brand called Luxy Hair. They had done this video on My perfect Imperfection challenge tag I think around 5 years ago(Yea, It’s an ancient tag). And today I decided to do it’s verbal version. So basically this tag is where the host talks about 3 imperfections followed by 3 perfections.(Physical, and it has nothing to do with what people think about you, it’s something personal, it’s about what you think about yourself,how you view yourself)

So here we go.

  1. I hate my skin, no I don’t hate my skin color, shade or tone, I just hate that my skin breaks out a lot and It’s not flawless and I hate it.
  2. I hate my teeth. They are not even or proper and I’m scared of  doctors. (I have to get braces and my mom is really scolding me over it but I just don’t like doctors.)
  3. My Muffin Top Belly.

Oooooohh…. Things got really personal there. I have many more flaws that I could tell you about.

Ok now onto the positive part.

  1. My eyes. I love my eyes. They’re not perfect or world’s most beautiful eyes, they’re just average and normal eyes but I love them so much.
  2. My Lips. They are cutest lips ever. hahaha..(enough with the self obsession girl!) No, honestly I don’t have perfect teeth but because of my lips I kind of have very sweet smile and I have been complimented over it. So.. You know.!
  3. Even though I have bit of tummy fat I have a good hourglass body shape so I can somehow manage to hide away my flaws and dress up nicely.(at least the way I want)

Yup these are my perfect imperfections. List down yours if you want. If you write a blog post on this TAG than let me know and have fun you all lovelies out there. Loads of love. Take good care of yourselves.

TUDles.. ❤ ❤ ❤
