If you ever traveled back in time, what would you tell your younger self?
I wish I can meet you today….
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “You don’t have to be thinner, taller or fairer to be prettier.”
You are beautiful just the way you are.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Things are not bleak as you make yourself to believe”
Remember, if it hurts more than it makes you happy, let it go, for it is not love.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Believe in yourself, your abilities and silence those inner demons.”
If you have come this far, you can go even farther than what you think is possible; i’ts only in the mind that there are limits.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Let go of the toxic people in your life.”
Let them go, nothing about them is worth stressing over, especially what they bring about, be it bitterness or strife.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Don’t bother if everyone jeers at you, pities you and speaks nastily of you.”
Even though the whole world might seem against you, there would always be someone who wholeheartedly loves you.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “You don’t have to prove anything to anyone.”
For you will soon move on and their opinions, well, like the winds of yesterday, in no time they would be gone.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Be selfish, be loving and be kind to yourself.”
No matter who lets you down, you would always have someone to count on and that would be you.
And, if I meet you, my 20-year-old self, today, I would tell you, “Take that first step, don’t doubt yourself, not today nor ever.”
For miracles are just around the corner!

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths.
