Top 10 MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. QUOTES

quotes-you-dont-have-to-see.jpg

Today is Martin Luther King jr’s day (15th January) . In 1964, King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his instrumental role in pushing for greater racial equality through nonviolent civil disobedience. Behind his booming voice and poignant appeals for racial healing were his driving values of courage, love, forgiveness, and above all, hope.

Thank you, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the commitment to equality, hope and love is as important for humanity today as it ever was. Thank you for demonstrating how to lead in divisive times. How to be a steadfast for hope and love in the face of hatred. On this day where we celebrate your life, we have to remember what you would have done. You would not let the hate win…you would use love, kindness, and a desire for freedom and equality to overcome. So will we.

Inspiring words as we celebrate MLKJ Day .What do you need to take the first step towards? The best news? You get to build the staircase as you go ❤️ You really don’t need to see the whole staircase, just go!

Inspiring-Martin-Luther-King-Jr.-quotes-Keep-Moving.jpg

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
The time is always right to do what is right.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Martin-Luther-King-Jr-Only-in-the-darkness-can-you-see-the-stars.jpg
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.

Quote-martin-luther- king.jpg
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

martin-luther- king-quotes.jpg
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.

Martin Luther King Jr.: Keep Moving

Martin Luther King Jr. gives an inspiring speech about designing your life’s blueprint, and reminds us that whatever you do, you must always keep moving.

Transcript:

“This is the most important and crucial period of your lives, for what you do now and what you decide now at this age may well determine which way your life shall go. The question is, whether you have a proper, a solid, and a sound blueprint. I want to suggest some of the things that should be in your life’s blueprint. Number one in your life’s blueprint should be a deep belief in your own dignity, your own worth and your own somebodiness. Don’t allow anybody to make you feel that you are nobody. Always feel that you count. Always feel that you have worth, and always feel that your life has ultimate significance.

“Secondly, in your life’s blueprint, you must have as a basic principle the determination to achieve excellence in your various fields of endeavor. You’re going to be deciding as the days and the years unfold what you will do in life, what your life’s work will be. Once you discover what it will be, set out to do it and to do it well. Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be the sun, be a star, for it isn’t by size that you win or you fail, be the best of whatever you are.

“Finally, in your life’s blueprint must be a commitment to the eternal principals of beauty, love, and justice. Well life for none of us has been a crystal stair, but we must keep moving, we must keep going. If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl, but by all means, keep moving.”(Source:Goalcast)

Failure Is Not Final !

failure-is-not-final.jpg

Happy Morning/Evening  friends    When I got enough confidence, the stage was gone….. When I was sure of Losing, I won……. When I needed People the most, they Left me……. When I learnt to dry my Tears, I found a shoulder to Cry on…… When I mastered the Skill of Hating, people started Loving me from the core of their Heart…… And, while waiting for Light for Hours when I fell asleep, the Sun came out….. That’s LIFE!! No matter what you Plan, you never know what Life has Planned for you…… Success introduces you to the World……. But Failure introduces the World to you……. ……Always be Happy!! Often when we lose Hope and think this is the end… God smiles from above and says, “Relax Sweetheart; It’s just a Bend, not the End..!”   

 

Makar Sankranti Festival | Pongal – Time for a Fresh Start

Happy_bhogi.jpg

Hey Mamas , Today is Sankranti festival in India. Mahar Sankranti is celebrated by Indians across the world in different names Bhogi,Pongal,Bhi,Lohri etc . This is a good chance to teach kids about different traditions and culture . We celebrate festivals to discipline humans . There is always a good lesson hidden in all the Indian festivals . Check out my today’s post about celebrations to teach children a good life lesson.

My daughter Lucky is so excited to wear Indian traditional dress today . I will post pictures of our today’s costumes and table spread later in the evening . 🙂 🙂 We love festivals .. One should never forget their root,culture and traditions wherever we put up in this beautiful World . I’d love to see pictures,posts,write up,links about all your festive celebrations .Please take out time to share your festival pictures and links of your celebrations . Please drop it in the comments below.

Bhogi is the first day of four days Sankranthi celebrations in India.

 On Bhogi, people discard old and derelict things and concentrate on new things causing change or transformation.The theme of Bhogi festival is to throw away and burn old and unwanted stuffs to bring in spiritual bhogam(prosperity) into our house and heart .

On Bhogi day we not only remove unwanted things from our houses, remove unwanted /negative thoughts,emotions and negative people from you & your life . It will make you a #NewYou ..It will help to transform your life . This is a time to reborn as a new person . Time to change your bad attitudes & habits . Just change one bad habit Big or Small !
Remove the old and give space for new beautiful things in life After all its one life which is short Live a happy and positive one .  

The history behind the word ‘Bhogi’ has too many accounts. The widely reckoned etymology to the word ‘Bhogi’ is that the word ‘Bhogam’ entails ‘receiving pleasure from divinity’ and the day offering that divine pleasure is named after ‘Bhogi’.  Another legend accounts that Bhogi Pandigai is celebrated in the name of Lord Indhra (god of rain and thunderstorms).

The celebrations of Bhogi Pandigai usually start early in the morning where homes are usually cleaned and washed. Subsequently, women and girls decorate the houses with beautiful kolam (rangoli) drawn out of rice flour and kaavi (red-oxide). People take head baths on this day as a part of the Bhogi festival celebrations..

(Are you wondering what’s so colorful in the above picture?! This Kolam/Rangoli.. Women and girl kids draw this colorful Rangoli on the main entrance of every house during festival times . It improves their creativity,colors brings peace to heart and soul.)The next step is performing pujas and offering ‘Bholi’ (battercake with lentil or coconut filling prepared with jaggery) to the almighty as ‘naivedhyam’ (food offered to god as a part of ritual). Later people assemble to light up a large outdoor fire to burn old and unwanted stuffs.Bhogi Pandigai is also celebrated in Andhra Pradesh in a grand manner on the same day as ‘Bhogi’ and as ‘Lohri’ in Punjab and ‘Magh Bihu/Bhogali Bihu’ in Assam.A very delicious and rich meal is prepared and served on plantain leaf on this day .

Pongal O’ Pongal: More than a Harvest Festival

 

Happy-Pongal.jpg

Pongal is a harvest festival dedicated to the Sun God. This is the second day of Sankranthi celebrations. Pongal usually means festivity or celebration; more specifically Pongal is translated as “boiling over” or “overflow.” Pongal is also the name of a sweetened dish of rice boiled with lentils that are ritually consumed on this day. Symbolically, Pongal signifies the gradual heating of the earth as the Sun travels northward toward the equinox.

In this season, you should get rid of all the unnecessary things in your life and begin life afresh. You should make this cleanup an annual event. Even if some cleaning up is done on a daily basis, a few things pile up here and there without you being conscious about it. This piling up is not only of material things in our homes. Also in our minds , in our emotions , in our bodies, and in our consciousness, things pile up. This is the time to clean that up and start afresh in the coming spring, as spring is the best time to start life..

Pongal day is consider as new beginning of all good things. It marks the end of winter . Also it is the festival to respect farmers .

(Are you wondering looking at the above picture?! This is a pot with pongal which is the main dish on this festival.This is a Yummy Sweet in a colorful clay pot 🙂 , Food crops and Sugar cane. Since it is the harvest festival food plays the major role . In our agricultural country Rice and wheat are the major food crops)

Makar Sankranti is also called as Kite festival . Kids enjoy flying colorful kites .

Mattu Pongal is the third day and includes worshiping cattle because it is believed that cattle help give a good harvest. This is in recognition of the importance of cattle to the agrarian community. They are also regarded as sacred animals. The cows are given a good bath and a thorough scrub. They are then adorned and decorated with garlands around their necks and kumkum on their horns and foreheads. They are not given any work on that day and are allowed to graze without much restraint. Ceremonial boiled rice is offered with sweets and sugar cane.

The fourth day is called Kanum or Kani Pongal, which is when many people go on picnic and spend time with families and friends. The Pongal festival also includes exchanging gifts, dancing, and buffalo-taming contests. Single women seeking good husbands observe this day.

No Rain No Flowers

no-rain-no-flowers

Happy Morning Everyone !

Dear Mamas , How are you all ? Are you struggling in life ? Are you finding any hardship ? Is your day bad ?

To whoever’s reading this,you may be struggling right now,but hold on,don’t give up!! Your current situation,is not your final destination.. You are not in a storm you are in a transition.I think that sometimes when things don’t always go as  planned or how we may want them to go I feel that facing obstacles only makes us stronger.. That we’re able to grow & learn through the darker / rainy days, so I just wanted to share this quote as it really spoke to me in a deeper way, helped me through today & also expresses my sunshine state of mind. When the going gets tough just remember, no rain, no flowers .Especially as an entrepreneur, but in ALL areas in life… setbacks equal a learning opportunity, not failure. .

No Rain No Flowers

No Rain No Rainbows

No mud. No lotus.

No pain. No gain.

No practice. No outcome

Truth is, all of us will go through hardship, to varying degrees, at some point in our lives. History tells us that majority of the the greatest personalities all went through hardship on their way to legitimate success. Without that rain no flower will grow.

Here is a reminder to all my Women Entrepreneur friends,”

With struggles and challenges, there comes successes and accomplishments. Without failure we wouldn’t learn as much and success wouldn’t taste as good .Without hardship in our past we wouldn’t be able to inspire, help and empower people who are going through the same thing we did. Keep Moving ”

Understand one thing clearly,

“There is not a great victory, without a painful battle…” Without tough times you’d never appreciate the good! Life is a mix of high and lows, valley and mountains, sunny days and storm and that what makes it gorgeous!  Without the hard parts we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the beautiful parts as much.A good reminder for those not so perfect days. We all have them. There is no way of living life with a happiness filter but you must choose happiness every day. Some days are harder than others, but I needed this reminder today. Learn to shine with or without the sun. Either way, you’ll be just fine. Life doesn’t always go the way you plan it. There will be ups. There will be downs. But despite what it may currently look like; remember that all things are in purpose, on purpose! If you’re currently going through a season where life doesn’t seem to be going your way. I’d like to remind you that in order for the flowers to blossom, they must first withstand the rain. It’s the seasons where life seems to just be pouring down on us, where the most beauty comes from. Don’t run away from rain! On the contrary, embrace it! When the storms pass, you’ll see it was all worth it. Until that day comes, just remember – No Rain, No Flowers! pour down and I’ll bloom. . You have to go through your storm in order to grow stronger, more beautiful. I’ve had lots of rainy days and I’ve had days full of flowers, sunshine and great days. Even a bad day have 24 hours. So I know better than anyone it won’t rain forever and I’ll see the flowers again.

It’s not easy to see the positive when we are in the midst of a storm, but there is also a positive side and the storm never lasts!

Learn to embrace the storms in your life

Love Always , Devi
