People write diaries. Their diaries describe their personality. I write on my blog. It describes me way too well. :D
My writing takes me places my mind never wanted to go
Everyone writes. From the ink of their thoughts, by the pen of their mind on the page of their face. Everyone writes.I love to write. It is a passion; a compulsion; something that gives me an avenue to express myself. I write when I am happy; when I am sad or when an issue touches my heart. I find inspiration to write in every aspect of life.
This blog is dedicated to anything and everything that fills my thoughts and occupies cranial space

Love Thyself

For a wise man, failure is not falling down but staying down. Failure is not the end of dreams; it is only the beginning. Failure teaches success if you are open to new ideas and considers failure to be the stepping-stones to success. A man can fail many times, but he is not a real failure until he begins to blame someone else.

There was one man in this world who believed in all that has been said above, and who has become a ”light-house” for millions of people who followed him. His name was Abraham Lincoln and he became President of USA when he was 51, after a long string of failures. His resume is as follows:

Age 22, failed in business
Age 23, ran for legislature and was defeated.
Age 24, failed again in business.
Age 25, elected to legislature.
Age 26, sweetheart died.
Age 27, had a nervous breakdown.
Age 29, lost in the election for speaker.
Age 31, lost in the election for elector.
Age 34, lost in the election to the congress.
Age 37, elected to congress.
Age 39, lost in the election to the congress.
Age 46, lost in the election to the senate.
Age 47, lost in the election for vice president.
Age 49, lost in the election to the senate.
Age 51, elected President of the United States of America

Abraham Lincoln did not bother about what people said about him when he failed. Even when he became the President, people still criticised him but instead of becoming disheartened, he said, “No man is good enough to be President, but someone has to be.”
