Back in the deserts there was a kingdom of floras, every flora magnificent than the other, except for the very last one who was habituated on the edge of the road. She was the simplest amidst all. While all others were busy glimmering in their sweet colors and fragrance after the touch of rain, she decided to stare at the sunshine and moonlight wondering how to sparkle the world around her. Due to her distance she chose in both the homing and thoughts, she would often be undervalued and criticized by the other beauties and as well by most in the kingdom.

As the seasons passed by the kingdom kept blooming, in their colors and perfume and every flora was noticed more than before. On the other hand, the little one on the edge worked to burrow her roots strong and expanded, expanding everyday to get one crawl closer to the road she gazed at. And for this she had to face her mud every day, damaging the littlest corner of her petal and burrowing her scent in her roots. For this, she was often seen as a disgust, too little and too low by the rest of the floras. Even the breeze those flew by, decided not to touch her for days, except for a very light breeze once. This breeze smelled her fragrance she burrowed and wanted to be the only one to touch and feel it so it decided to visit her every day. Whilst all other breezes would flatter the movements of the gentle petals of other floras, this breeze only visited her telling her how different of a charm she was. There were days she wouldn’t let the breeze puff her, but there came days when she began to enjoy dancing in the breeze’s blow and just when she would let the breeze have a small taste of her aroma, something happened…

With every other breeze, this breeze decided to change its direction towards the kingdom and never showed up again. This change of course damaged that little diligent into weak and gloominess. The other floras had one more reason to taunt her again. Her roots were splintering and her road seemed far by. She wouldn’t look at the sunshine and moonlight for days and seasons.

Then one night, suddenly came a storm. The entire kingdom, all of its beauties blown away, off their roots at once! Except they failed to spread their strength at the one at the far edge, although she was shivering out of fear and cold, she decided to stand straight and fight back the storm that night. She fought and fought until the sun showed up and it was all warm once again.

She looked back at the sunshine and smiled and waited till the light filled her up once again. She stood shattered but brave, she stood broken but bold. She stood only to realize that the storm she fought spread her fragrance, now throughout the desert. She stood only to see that road she wanted to reach was now beneath her rooted feet. She stood only to realize that once again she newly Rose.

Who knows where you have been, how you made it this far. Who knows the pain of the travel yet who knows the joy of the sunshine and moonlight. Who knows, but You, the contentment of rising.

The wildest, stand strongest

Don’t judge your success, Judge what you Earned


Dalai Lama 14

Dalai Lama 14 said, “Judge your Success by what you had to give up, in order to get it.” Now, for most of us today “success” would be the highlight here, little do we care about the “what” that we plan to give up on and it’s obvious, for our focus is always succeeding, by hook or by crook. Many times in life we have to make certain choices and compromises, may that be of our time, sleep, rests and even relationships. Why? Because we so badly want to be successful. We are so busy making the Living that we forget to Live.
I personally believe in being ambitious, but on the cost of the precious things I already have and was gifted? No!That would never be a wise choice to make in the first place. How can you expect a person to be happy with something else and more when he cannot be content and thankful with what he already has or had? Now there, this is not to #inspire you to stop working for success. Make sure to read the whole article before you judge.

Success is when a person reaches his/her very goal he/she desired. We desire things we do not have in our possession. For someone who urges to gain something by letting go of his “already present” precious belongings would that be success? You know what’s the ugly truth? Anyone and everyone can make deals; and giving up your gifted precious possessions in order to gain something is a deal. A real success can only be achieved by a person who knows the Perfect Balance. A person who is determined and works crazy to gain his goal by protecting what he already has and was gifted with! Facing a challenge with his #precious, yet fighting to protect it and claiming his journey to his goal, now that’s my kind of Success.

Don’t let the phrase “You only know the value of a tooth when it’s gone” be your case here. The world will praise you by what they see from the outside, but what is inside will be yours to Live. Be passionate, be determined, be ambitious, be punctual, be focused but None on the cost of what you love, what was gifted to you and what gave a bright and beautiful meaning to your life. Remember you can only

Judge your success by What you are having to Give up, in order to Get It!
