You cannot be happy all the time but You can have joy residing in your heart, always You think happiness and joy are one and the same There is a slight but significant difference between the two Joy is the feeling that lives deep in the soul It endures the trials and troubles of our daily lives While happiness is its outward expression, coming and going Try to find joy in your existence and hold onto it Happiness will find you if you hold on to the joy
On my last visit to Lahore, we had a lot of rainy days. And unlike the usual winter rain which falls quietly and gently, there was a loud downpour this year. The country was experiencing a dry spell so the rain was very welcome. But when one is on vacation, it does makes life a bit inconvenient.

What people don’t understand is that Covid not only kills but also makes a person very ill and the illness can prolong. It’s not only death they should be worried about, but the disability brought on by getting ill. It
Anyway, since I cannot make others do as they should, I follow all the safety protocols of Covid and so does my family.
“Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life”
Making mistakes is a part of living and learning. I make many mistakes and then regret eats at my heart till I come to terms with my blunder. Never let any mistake stop you from living to the full. Get over it, apologize for it and go on in life!
Cosmopolitan, suave and well articulated I wish I had all these qualities Instead I am blunt, outspoken to a fault I wouldn’t say I’m provincial but not sophisticated either I do have a bit of charm buried under A thick layer of self-effacing humor I can only lay a claim to sincerity of thoughts and actions I am but a simple soul, open and truthful
