Someday we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny.
Every problem that today seems to terrify you will one day be just a comical memory. Don't let little issues make you overstretch. What embarrassed you today will one day be a very hysterical memory. What made you cry today will make you smile a few years later.
So don't take everything too sternly. Just relish your life.
When it comes to luck, you make your own.
Everything just doesn't become favourable all at once. People build their fate, they mark their destiny. No religion or no appeals will gift you your victory, you have to work hard for it.
We need a lot of self-discipline and a lot of passion for attaining our goals. Luck is important but not the real deal. It is you who make your life what it is supposed to be.
We all have stories we're living and telling ourselves.
Our perspectives, our experiences, our choices, and the way we create ourselves is a story. Our little haps that happen in life become a story.
We are nothing but a bunch of aligned stories.
The best music is essentially there to provide you something to face the world with.
Music is the best form of art. It acts as a remedy when someone is hurt. It acts as an exhilarating mode when we want to groove and enjoy. It becomes a friend when we are alone.
But the best of all music is which gives us strength. The music which makes us stronger and breeds faith in our heart is the most empowering music.

Talk about a dream, try to make it real.

No one can live a good life alone. Everyone needs someone to be there for them. Everyone needs love and support.
Those who choose to shut everyone out of their life is just a mere sad man. A hand is required to hold you when you are down. And then you need someone to participate in your laughter.
But I think that your entire life is a process of sorting out some of those early messages that you got.
When you are in your growing up phase, you seek a lot of advice that you don't grasp at that time. It sounds like a waste of time to you. But eventually and gradually, you learn those sayings via various experiences.
Life gives you a definition of everything. You sort out problems one by one.
Somebody who can reckon with the past, who can live with the past in the present, and move towards the future - that's fabulous.
Your past is filled with assorted lessons that can grant you wisdom for your future endeavor. One must try to acknowledge those lessons and learn from them, and at the same time be free from the pain it holds. And keep living in the present while grabbing all the opportunities that your today is providing.
With that, never blind yourself from your future. Work hard for it.
