Are We Dancing to the Tunes of Luck? #FridayReflections

Before we indulge in a thought-provoking conversation about destiny and other complicated topics, I would like to clarify that I am not a philosopher. I might pretend to be one every now and then, but I have not studied philosophy. Whatever I feel, I write it down and share with the world. I believe the heart and the soul know the truth; it’s up to us to really think about something, dig deep, and the answers will come to us. See, philosophy comes easily to me 😉 There is no denying that we can’t control everything in life. Does it … Continue reading Are We Dancing to the Tunes of Luck? #FridayReflections

“Wait for a Little Longer,” Said Life — Always! # FridayReflections

Some other times, this wait might be a more difficult one, like waiting for a dead relationship to rekindle or a long gone friend to come back or, in the case of many Indian IT people, stamping of their US visa. Some people … Continue reading “Wait for a Little Longer,” Said Life — Always! # FridayReflections
