Success

From last few days I have been reflecting upon this word “Success”.  I guess my anxiety flared up with a fast approaching change in my work place and new job positions opening up with tough criteria and assessment exams involved.  It will be total wrong of me to not accept that yes I got nervous, anxious of losing out.

Book Review: Tuck Everlasting

Tuck Everlasting
By Natalie Babbitt
Number of pages: 139
Genre: Children’s fantasy novel, drama
Publication date: 1975

I spotted this novel one day , and instantly requested the owner to allow me to read it first. What made me so impatient to read a book that I won’t wait for my turn to get it? Simple answer, the title “Tuck Everlasting” caught my attention and sparked enthusiasm for me to read it.

The novel revolves around a very interesting story of a family and an eternal life.
Natalie Babbitt, did a beautiful job capturing the emotions of all characters along with vivid and rich imagery with light touch of humour throughout the book.

The story starts off with an adventure of a ten year old girl Winnie Foster who is tired of her family daily routine and decides to run away from her home town called Treegap. In her quest to run away she meets a seventeen year old boy Jesse along side of a pond and from there the author takes over with an interesting story about the family of Tucks and a mystery behind the spring water. Complications arises when a stranger follows Winnie Foster and find out the secret behind the spring water.

The story not only revolves around eternal life but beautifully captures the sincerity and purity of various human emotions and a special bond of friendship while leaving a reader with a question to think about towards the end of the story about immortality.

I will definitely recommend this book and give it a five star.

Triple Versatile Award

This is my very first award the joy of receiving it is beyond explanation and very encouraging at the same time. I would like to thank Ally L. Mare for their wonderful recognition. As per the guidelines of this award, please refer below to seven interesting facts about myself and my theme based account Coffee in Style. I definitely make time to read other bloggers inspiring and unique submissions and my nominations are below. Thanks for visiting my blog. 🙂

Black, White or Grey

“Black, White or Grey” – is a very diverse topic of discussion with different conclusions drawn by each and every one. However, it is important to consider that how this phenomena fits itself in the form of a communication and dealing with people? It is an established fact that everyone has different personalities with different behavior traits. Some individuals seem themselves fit in the category of highly sensitive people, while other consider themselves as strong, stubborn and not easily affected by criticism or negativity around them.

5 fingers

Starring at steam coming out of my hot tea in my favorite tea mug, one thought after another came in my mind and then faded away just like hot steam from my tea started to settle down.

I then looked at the title I gave to my article – “5 fingers”. Instantly my mind started to reel at various incidents around the globe among various communities, religions, race, and countries. Of course media plays a very powerful role in delivering these incidents to us. However, sometimes creating a positive influence on others yet at times fueling up negative thoughts and emotions among individuals of all age groups. Whatever, the impression might be given by media, the outcome sometimes fades away instantly and sometimes it lasts forever.

Developing as a person

Back in school days I always used to wonder what does “developing as a person” really mean. At times the message communicated through educational institutes and professionals conveyed dual and mixed message to understand this term. Does developing as a person mean higher grades or does it mean to excel and thrive among yourself to become a more accepting and understanding individual?

I have learned to survive in the dark
I have tried to let go of the past
for everything happens for a reason
I have learned to find my way at last.

Kindness

Not just kids….. As we begin a new school year, take a minute to say a little prayer for the kids that don’t fit in. The kids that come home in tears, because they sit on the buddy bench at recess–and even then no one will play with them. The kids that are “different” at school. Pray they know they are loved; pray they know they are special; pray they find their tribe of friends. And pray they find the strength to do it alone if that is what life has dealt them.
Teach your kids to be kind to everyone. Copy, paste and share the love. #projectbkind #loveoneanother
