Have a Happy life

     I know we all have to prove our self at every step of our life whether we like it or not, that is the reason we have fights, tests, examinations, experiments and all. You try and try and try but there is no guarantee to be a master at what you do. You will still be shocked and frightened. And sometimes you are unable to answer the situation.

    You can be strong and you can be very judgmental, you can be kind and you can be so fragile but with these mixed feelings you can make a hell out of your life. But life doesn't have to be that hard the way of life has to be free and beautiful.

     May be you don't know what you want. May be you screw things when you don't like the way it is but it's ok. It's ok to get angry when you are hurt, it's ok to surrender when you are in love and its ok to be heartbroken when you trust. This is the part of our life, your life and my life. At least you are trying to be real with you. This is what we do, we are supposed to have emotions without it we all will be lost.

     What if I tell you an average person can live for 24,000 days only. In 24,000 days you will grow, you will learn, you will love and you will die someday. Isn't it really too less time to live your life.

     Yes you have been told not to talk to strangers but I tell you here do not stop being kind to them.

     Yes you have been told war is no good for humanity but I tell you here do not stop your heart to collect the broken pieces that war spreads all over the world.

     And yes you have been told life will be measured in how much money you earn but I tell you here do not avoid the fact that there might be something else (dreaming, writing, exploring the world...etc) you would really love to do, and you should not forget that.

My Teenage Dream

     When I was a teen I used to collect coins, magazines, pictures of movie stars, writing notes and do lots of cycling around old houses. We didn’t have many options to watch on television with 'Doordarshan' channel, so it’s better to play with friends. But after the advent of color televisions and more channels we girls used to get together after school and watch television all evening.

     Do you remember when we were teenagers we always wanted to be someone like a pop star, movie star, superstar as they are born to be praised by fans and followers like us. They motivated us to be beautiful, good looking, rich, successful and happy.

     Michael Jackson & Madonna was the most inspiring pop stars of my generation and liked by every teen, but I always go with the minority in this scenario I always liked the Latina sensation Jennifer Lopez, JLO. She was attractive and beautiful in her own ways but my friends used to say "She is not beautiful". Interestingly I never considered myself as a beautiful girl in my group or a class but that might be the reason it brought me closer to her, praise her and idolize her.

     Her journey right from the backup dancer till the stardom was never been easy. Imagine, how hard it would be for her to become a Hollywood mainstream superstar when she was actually from a Latino background with an average looks. But she succeeded. She is dam hard working person. She performs multiple tasks, movies, singing, dancing, concerts, business and personal life. I wish I could be as strong and self made women like her.

     Jennifer says she does not drink alcohol, smoke, or experiment with drugs, she stays natural and no plastic surgery unlike most of the superstars. Jennifer Lopez with Ben Affleck was the best picture of the perfect couple for me that time. I loved her song 'Jenny from the Block' the most and I still do.

     The way she dances and her beautiful voice, her perfect toned body and her different but attractive looks which made her shine wherever she goes always inspired me to be like her. Those were the days and even today I have never dropped the feeling to be like her. I have never stopped liking her. She’s still my 'The favorite pop star'.

     She has always given me the positive feeling that you can be beautiful and conquer the world with whatever you have and whoever you are.

For me to love her is loving myself in many ways.
