Every Single Day You Make A Choice .

choice.jpg

Some people don’t like the fact that I am so positive. 😮

Here is what I say to that…

👉 Being positive is a choice. 👈

➡️ Do I have bad days? Of course.
➡️ Do I experience negative thoughts? In spades!
➡️ Do I get in bad moods? That’s affirmative.
➡️ Do I get angry? Absolutely.

Here’s my point…

We all pretty much experience the same stuff (mostly.) At any given time, there are literally millions of people who have it worse than you. 🎯

You absolutely, positively can decide to face the day with a good and productive attitude  or you can choose to be negative and a defeatist. 😐

It is ENTIRELY up to you. 🔥

With Love

Devi ❤

Happy Holidays !

You cannot lead from behind

You’re not serving anyone by playing small. By people pleasing. By putting everyone else’s happiness ahead of your own.
Instead you are depriving the world of your very BEST Self.
The one that came here to experience joy, happiness, fulfillment, love, laughter and feeling ALIVE.
And in the being of THIS person, you INSPIRE and EMPOWER those around you to take responsibility for their own happiness too.
How awesome is that?
Lead by example, not by shrinking behind

Know your worth

dev.jpg

Know your worth.

Surround yourself with people who see it, too! People who know their own worth, who are supportive instead of doubting, and have the same positive outlook you try to cultivate in yourself! If you want to fly with eagles,don’t swim with the ducks . Surround yourself with people who lifts you up . You will become the average of five people you spend the most time with .. Choose the right people .

Be sure you’re filling your world with the energy you need. 🙌🔥🙌

With Love

Take the next step to improving your level of success! PART 1

affirmation

 

How many of you believe affirmations ? How many are practicing it ? I would recommend you to go for it . It really works .. Affirmations plays a major part in my success in life and business . 
Do you agree, success just isn’t written in our stars or it’s just not in our karma !? Success is just not Luck … Success is the sum of your thoughts, attitude, actions – hard work,continuous learning,self improvement ,dedication ,efforts,hustle and……. lot more ..

Your mindset is everything ! The words you speak,write and the thoughts you think ALL together forms your mindset and it will become the reality .
Affirmations can be a powerful tool to help you to change your mood, state of mind and manifest the change you desire in your life.An affirmation opens the door it’s a beginning point on the path to change.Develop the powerful habit of using daily affirmations to help achieve your goals and dreams. one of the most powerful tools used to create a more fulfilling life is the affirmation. These little sayings are positive statements that can help keep you motivated and develop a more positive perception of yourself. Affirmations can not only help you to change negative thoughts, they can also motivate you to accomplish major goals. Affirmations are easy to create and use, but you’ll need dedication to make them work.

Affirmations are so powerful! What we say about ourselves on a continual basis, we eventually become. Phrases like “I’m only…” or “I’m just a…” are limiting your greatness. 

Here’s the simple steps:
1) Make a list of what you’ve always thought of as your negative qualities/ include any criticisms/ the goals which you think big or unattainable.
2) Write out an affirmation on the positive aspect of your self-judgment.
3) Speak the affirmation out loud for about five minutes.
4) Say out loud or write it down in a paper for multiple times OR ask your close friend or family member to read it for you .
5) Record them in a player and listen them .
6) Write it down and keep it on your desk and make sure you view it often .
7) It has the ability to reach deep in to your mind and such thoughts will make you work towards it and It will become reality.
8) The key is , You’ve to BELIEVE it .

(I will write about these steps in detail in my next post)

Today’s Affirmation
I am powerful, I am successful and I am worthy.Be kind to yourself, empower yourself, know that you’re full of greatness. Then go and have the best day EVER!

‘You teach people how to treat you’

Wanna feel empowered, be respected by others? Then it starts with you.

Affirm your own greatness, your confidence and radiate this new empowered energy to others.Shine your own light and encourage another woman to do the same for herself. I completely love  doing affirmations, writing down what you want and meditating. But to become successful you can’t just wish it to happen. You have to make it happen. It all comes down to your daily activity to go for what you want and help as many people as you can. If you have not done anything today, reach out to at least one person. You will feel you have at least made one step further towards your success.

Honestly when you start your day with positive affirmations about yourself, you’re much more likely to have an amazing day!

 With Love

Business Tips

the-only-time-you-should-ever-look-back.jpg

Motivation : Quotes :

The only time you should ever look back,is to see how far you’ve come .

For me it’s been 10 plus years journey already..

Lots of ups. 
Lots of downs.

Haters.
Supporters.

I’m grateful for all of them though.

Thanks for the haters ,doubters , naysayers and struggles that made me a stronger person.  because all of that led to the biggest breakthroughs, that probably wouldn’t have happened any other way.

They said I cannot do .They said i’m not worth it .
They said I wouldn’t succeed at anything .They said I’m not capable .. and discouraged me many times.

Ever heard some of that? 

Had I listened to them, I’d still be slaving away .

Instead..

I developed my skills

I did personal development.. improved myself in all required areas .

Made some incredible friends

I ignored negative people and was surrounded by people who supported and guided me .

I’m not saying this to brag though.

Here are some major lessons that will help you get closer to your goals:

 Find people who have done what you want and learn from them.

 Invest in yourself.

Invest in courses, coaching, training . Go to events – that where all the magic happens.

(contact me for social media recruiting/business training I would love to help you anytime 🙂 )

 EXECUTE

Take action .. Don’t think just because you invest in yourself, you’ll make it happen.

Applied knowledge is what makes a difference.

Take action = you get results.
No action = no results.

 Be prepared to fail and face the failure . Things will go wrong, even when you think the opposite.

In business you gotta have a thick skin. So face the challenges and deal with them. That’s what will turn you into a successful person you’re meant to be.

 Be consistent with your income producing activities, because if you do the right things, you will succeed. It’s inevitable.

But you MUST stick to the process. Otherwise you’ll have to start all over again..

If you’re still reading this, congrats! Lol

Now you know what you need to be doing. Just go out and do it!

Yassh DO IT ! All the best

Love, Devi ❤

#SelfLove

You’re what you eat

motivational-quotes

You have been given some amazing gifts here. Focus on how you can develop and use them instead of looking at what that girl over there is doing. Be Yourself , You’re Amazing ! Look at the things you have already achieved , overcome and experienced . No one can do you as amazing as you can . You’re responsible for your health, growth and peace of mind .
No one can live a life for you..No one can push for you .. Love you for all that you have been,all that you are , and all you are yet to become .

You are YOU and No one is YOU and that is your super power .

You have one life ..

Live your BEST life ..

I strongly believe, “Health is Wealth” and “You’re what you eat”

Started a healthy eating lifestyle challenge this month ..  #AprilChallenge #selflove #selfcare

Health is not something we have. It’s something we create. Do you agree?!

It’s been over 2 years (today marks the day ) that I’ve eaten a vegetarian diet, and I’ve loved each moment. It’s been a transformative mind, body, spirit journey. It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. Health is something that will never go out of style .. it allows you to live your BEST LIFE. I encourage you to try one vegan meal a day. I don’t need to say much more. You’ll feel and see a difference. Enjoy the gift of health.

(some of these pictures from search engine. Thanks!)

Winding up with a Quote

“Invest in yourself, it’ll be the best investment you ever made.”

Be as bold as the lipstick you wear .

Be BOLD ..Be AUTHENTIC.. BE BRAVE & FEARLESS . Easier said than done. But yet so worth it. The magic happens when you step out of your COMFORT ZONE!!

Day 5 – Never Give Up !

 

Dont-give-upGood morning my beautiful angels!

Hope all well here .

I’m Back .. I was busy  #MarchMadness  #monthendmadness  🙂

The only way you can fail is if you stop trying. If you are passionate about a dream or a goal, go after it and don’t stop until you acquire your aspirations!

Bright blessings my loves!

Love , Devi ❤

Day 4 – Never Give up !

giving-up-is-not-an-option.jpg

I love who I’ve been .. But I really love who I’m becoming .

Be unapologetically YOU. Every day we wake up is a blessing and opportunity to start fresh . Don’t be afraid to open new doors and take chances… ..You never know where that door may lead you! No one else has to approve of you if you live for someone else’s approval, you are giving them way too much power in your life. Stand your ground, find your happy, live your very best life,help someone and spread some joy. THAT Is beautiful.

Eleanor Roosevelt once said: “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

It’s so true! Just do your thing and let people gossip. In the end, it’s all going to be worth it when YOU live the life THEY dream of!

The very best kind of pretty you can feel is pretty strong and pretty confident that you can accomplish everything that you dream of accomplishing ! Never allow negative thoughts to creep in and slow you down on your journey of achieving the best you possible.
You CAN become whatever you’re determined enough to become ! Guarantee your success by making certain the intensity of your actions match the intensity of your dreams.

It may take time & you may have to trudge through some serious sh*t to get there…but you will get there !

Giving up when things don’t go well, they don’t feel right or they fail ONLY guarantees you will NEVER get to where you are supposed to be, even if right now you have no clue where that is!

Carrying on & pushing through will hurt but I promise you …it will be amazing when you finally make it!

I was told I couldn’t.

I was told I wasn’t focused.
I was told no one would listen.
I was told to give up…but I didn’t.

I didn’t listen to any of it and neither should you, it’s all rubbish.

Instead, I used the negativity projected on me to push me forward. And then I found people who actually did believe in me. I put myself around people who supported me and I got to work and I kept working and I keep working TILL IT WORKED.

Don’t let what other people project on you effect your vision and goals. You have everything in you to be successful. Once you make the decision that you have it, you’re already there.

You will lose some people along your  journey and that’s okay. It doesn’t make them bad people, but their part in your story is over. When we make such a monumental change in our lives, it affects everyone around us as well. Quite honestly some people have become very comfortable with you feeling “less-than” them. When you start to feel better about yourself and you begin to build your self-esteem and your self-confidence,they become very uncomfortable around you because it forces them to focus on what THEY’RE not doing to better themselves.
They will tell you that you’ve changed, and they will be right. Just make sure your changes are positive ones. Maintain your kindness and your loving heart, but walk away from anyone who tries to undermine or sabotage your success. It’s your time to shine, baby. Don’t dim your light for anyone.

Reach Your Dreams or Die Trying…

Accept that you will have challenges, breakdowns, stagnant phases, people discouraging you, things won’t go exactly how you want, and at times, you will feel like giving up, make mistakes, and fail at a few things.

If you’re tired, LEARN TO REST.

Just,
Don’t GIVE UP!

Love , Devi ❤

STOP CARING ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF YOU

what-other-people-think-of-me-is-none-of-my-business.png

I just happen to see a friend’s Facebook status post , Looks like she’s upset of other people’s opinion about her .

Ladies! Remember, You will never grow if you keep thinking of what others ll think of you or talk behind you .. And the result is 1) You ll get hurt and worry
2) Worry is a waste of time
3) Worry has the super power to make you sick and ugly . ( you ll lose your charm and beauty ).
4) You can never grow .
5 ) You can not move forward in your life or business .
6) You ll lose happiness .

Anything that costs you your peace is too expensive – Learn to let it go .

my-self-worth-is-not-determined-by-others.jpg

When you care what people think of you – you are giving them your power, your energy, and control over you.

You’re going to live your life . Live it to the Fullest .. No one is going to pay your bills or feed you . You’re responsible for your peace of mind . Peace of mind is important than people . Choose your friends wisely . Don’t give a shit to anyone and anything . We have options like Unfriend, Block and Ignore such ppl from our life and social media . You matter !! #fakepeople #fakefriends

Bottom Line :

Stop Worrying and Start Living .

Finally , You will lose 4 Hs #4
hours health,honor ,happiness .
The #4 Hs with come to you if you ready to accept the #2 Hs
Ready to Heal and Head Forward .
You’ re the only #1 H to your life
Yes. You’re the only HERO in your life !

dont-be-ashamed-of-your-story-it-will-inspire-others.jpg

Inspire others with your story

Everyone has a story to tell – a powerful tale that can inspire others to dream big and to think big.Everyone has a story…a history…a series of failures and mistakes that have shaped them into the person they are today. We shouldn’t be ashamed of our story. Our story is what helped us become the person we are. That story is what taught us great life lessons that we might not have learned otherwise.

Women Inspiring Women

Women Supporting Women

Here’s the example for these words.

Guinness World Records is thrilled to announce that Mother India’s Crochet Queens (India) successfully made the Largest crochet blanket in the world, measuring an astonishing 11,148.5 m² (120,001 ft² 72 in²) – easily covering the football pitch on which it was laid.

I have been honored to interview some of the key participants of this Guinness World Records . 

We rise by lifting others .. I’ve a super inspiring post today . A group of women joined together to create world record.These women are from different backgrounds.Some are Home Makers and some are single.They formed a Facebook group in 2015 and achieved the ‘Guinness World Records’ in 2016.Yarns,Needles,Knitting,Crochet skills brought them together.

When I interviewed them ; Most of them said,They started Crocheting as a hobby to kill time . Now they grow so big that they are too busy in receiving customer orders . 🙂 These ladies are skilled crafty in making Crochet bags,purses,home decor items,candle holders,dolls,kids&women wear,sweaters,door mats,table mats and lot more . (I’ve posted pictures of some of their awesome creations below)

These are the tools used to Crochet (Sujatha Shankar displayed her tools)

Passion turned Profit 

Geetha lives in a small town in Southern parts of India . She’s single and wanted to spend her time useful.She is good in making dolls..

“I love to do dolls. So learned Amigurumi (Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. The word is a portmanteau of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.) . My turning point is , after doing amigurumi dolls I got more orders. I keep getting orders for Ganesh and krishna dolls.I learned quelling, crochet, silk thread crafts by watching you tube” –  Geetha Renganayagam

Here’s Geetha’s Facebook page for more awesome colorful dolls https://www.facebook.com/Geethus-crafts-844975052223269/ .

Let’s hear it from Varalakshmi, “What started  as a hobby of mine(crocheting) to unplug myself from the non stop lifestyle, became more just a passion after I joined MICQ and has driven me to complete 50 blankets. I fear that once we break the Guinness record, there might be a vacuum in my life and l am contemplating some other avocation which would give me equal if not more satisfaction. Hope this journey continues in future with the new phases and with a different outlook. ”

Some of Varalakshmi’s super creations below

 

Rajakumari shares her experience below ,

” Crocheting had inspired me a lot to being out the creativity in me…
Started with a simple shawl , the products are endless…
Just after completing one project, my creativity and the magic hooks in my hands automatically starts up with another…
I find crocheting is cool and super fun…this is my one and only hobby…
If I want it simple, its as simple as that…😎 If wanted it complicated, I’ll make it complicate as much as I can…😂
I can see so many things for the crocheters to discover…”

I’m happy to share some of the awesome crochet work of my friends Rajakumari,Rajeshwari,Devi Priya and Sujatha Shankar . Omg they’re killer stuff.. Magical hands.. No words .. I’m speechless .. Here’s the display

It’s not that one should born great to attain greatness . All the above women are from middle-class family , not holding an international certification, some are physically disabled (this is what they say, “my ability is stronger than my disability” and they proved the world by their World record) but still they DID it with their skills,talent and hard work. I’m so proud of them .They’re the real inspiration .

Wrapping- up this post with this quote

“Behind every successful women a tribe of other successful women,who have her back.”

Love, Devi ❤

Risk Takers Are Dream Makers.

if-you-risk-nothing-you-risk-everything.jpg

Hey Amazing People

Happy Morning ❤ Today’s Motivation 

Risking Is Better Than Regretting .

If you want to change your life you have to be willing to make changes in your life. No risk, no reward and in my opinion it’s riskier to do nothing! 

It can be far more comfortable to play it safe, to not “rock the boat” and to keep things easy; however, if you want to create the life of your dreams, it requires you to step out, to take risks, and get uncomfortable.

Throughout my life I have often been told to be more “realistic” , “be cautious”, “slow down”, “be careful”,  “your taking on too much”, “you’re a dreamer”, “that can’t be done”, “be careful”, etc…. This may be good advice for some, but it’s not who I am….

If you spend your life in fear of what others will think, say and do – it is holding you back from what you were created to do and who you were created to be.

The truth is, all the things we have today, we have because someone took a risk, tried something new, went against the norm, got messy, stepped out, and didn’t give up.

That is what creates world changers
That is what leaves a legacy
That is what creates miracles
That is what makes money

Time to follow your heart and stop playing small.

Big risk = Big reward

If you’re not taking risks then you’re not growing. 
The biggest risk in life is not to take a risk‼️ 

Love , Devi ❤

 

 

Stop Playing Small !

Monday Motivation!!Keep Showing up ! 

devi-venkatesan.jpg

Happy Monday everyone !

I met a good friend of mine this weekend . Her name is Jo . We had  great fun time lunching together . Jo is a Mom and Mompreneur She is a good mom and a growing boss lady . She is guilty of her slow progress and not so satisfied business and she took a decision to shut down her business .

I made  Jo understand that,  Things are hard at times but show up anyways ! It’s a part of life that are meant to make you strong and gives you some lessons and experiences . It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop . Remember, your speed doesn’t matter forward is forward .

I know some days business is hard. I know you don’t feel like doing it. I know you’re tired, people are mean and things get overwhelming.

I know. I know Do it anyway .. Don’t give up .

That’s true with parenting kids too and you don’t give up on them .. do you?

Don’t give up on your business dream just because it got hard. Take a break and get help if you need to but don’t give up. Persistence is the key.

If you’re tired ..take rest and show up again! Never quit because you never know how close you are to a breakthrough . It may be right around the corner .

Here’s the motivation for Boss Moms like Jo who wanted to quit .

“Rome was not built in a day ”

“Great things take time”

Pick yourself up, show up and do it anyway. I promise you that you’ll be glad you did.. Don’t give up until you are proud !! Keep Showing up !

Love , Devi ❤

 

Step out of your comfort zone !

step-out-of-your-comfort-zone.jpg

 

Hey everyone ! Some inspiration this weekend .

In a world of excuses why do you believe what others tell you about YOUR life? 85% of our people  are in jobs they don’t want to be in……….Why? Because it’s safe? Because it’s comfortable?……….if you passed away today would you feel like you really lived?

Chase your dreams…… will it be hard? YES…… will it come easy….. NO but will you wake up everyday with excitement… YES!You’ve seen inspirational quotes that encourage you to get out and do something strange—something you wouldn’t normally do—but getting out of your routine just takes so much work.

Remember, the below quotes

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone

Success is on the other side of your comfort zone

Great things never come from comfort zone

Everything you’ve ever wanted , is one step outside your comfort zone

“You can achieve  your dreams only when you step out of your comfort zone” – Devi Venkatesan

“Greatness happens in your life only when you stop fearing,and start doing what you feel discomfort . Come out of your comfort to taste the success . You could see and feel your life changes . You’d be surprised at what happens .” – Devi Venkatesan

Do you know ?? We always always have two options 1) to step forward in to growth 2) to step back in to safety . Which one will you choose ? Choose wisely .

If you do what you have always done you will get what you have always gotten . Try something new.. It will bring you new things. you want something you have never had then you have got to do something you have never done.Do one thing every day that scares you . Learn to take risk . It will bring you success or experiences  . What worst could happen ! 🙂  🙂

So , Are you ready to try something different today ? Ready ? Break your routine .

Wishing you all a great inspiring weekend ❤

Love , Devi ❤

 

 

Happy Friday !

Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later. Wishing you an incredible day!

Never believed in Miracles Until she became One

Friends!! I’m proud to share a friends life story today .She’s a Miracle and Magic. Shes the first girl in India who danced with dialysis solution in the stomach on stage. She has become the  Queen of Beads. . Creator of “Lavender feel beautiful” .(Beading awesome jewelry ) Her story is a super inspiration for other women .

You see this beautiful lady below , Her name is Seema. She’s one of my Facebook friends I met her in Uttaran projects ! I don’t know her much personally.You can’t judge a book by its cover!! I didn’t know any of her struggles until she shared it on her Facebook…. you see this amazing, gorgeous, incredibly kind person on the outside and assume everything is perfect on the inside. This just proves you never know the battles that others are privately facing. I too, struggled behind the mask I wore every day. Thank you for being so vulnerable and sharing.

seema2

I am herewith sharing Seema’s story just to make all the women in this Universe,aware that no matter what happens they are enough and the power of prayers will take care of the rest.

“Never believed in Miracles Until she became One”

“We all have a story,we all are special,we all have a purpose in life and,there is a reason for our struggles.” – Seema Nair

This is a girl living her ordinary life in an extraordinary way.

Seema shares her story with us here. Seema says,” I received recognition in school due to my voice ,I sang at various inter school level competitions which gave me a lot of accolades.My school titled me a “nightangle”.I was thoroughly in extra curricular activities and was an above average students.I was a popular student and was loved by everyone.I was born and brought up in Delhi ,a place where I got educated ,grew up into a young lady and started working.I started working at a very age in my life 17 as an intern in a fashion house and I had a blast.Further on I became a merchandiser to senior merchandise in export houses and became a workaholic .I had many beautiful learning and experiences in my career and the most important was value of time,qualitative deliveries and respecting the workers.

One day I had been experiencing a heavy pain in my back,internal fever and shivering .I was admitted in the same hospital where I was born what an irony I thought to myself .My parents came in , with saddened faces and burst out crying ,they said both your kidneys have failed .Its only 10 percent function.I hated dialysis ,I saw people dying on their dialysis bed and I was the youngest in the lot .Due to starvation,dehydration I became very weak and lost all my muscles.That one year I realized our family grew closer than ever before and the whole extended family came together to contribute financially for my first transplant.My Father donated his kidney to me,I was re-operated the next day as there was clotting next to the new kidney.Finally when I came back to my senses,I ate my first official meal in a year a creamy vegetable bake .There is a period of 1 year isolation post transplant patients go through and its often depressing staying within 4 walls.I used to watch a lot of cookery shows,movies.I slipped into depression very soon,this was the toughest phase .I had visual and auditory hallucination due to excessive drugs and trauma.I heard things and saw people when no one said anything or no one passed by.After going to a counselor I took some medications and recovered ,he said this happens to all patients who have undergone tremendous trauma.

I met my husband we dated for a year and got married.He made my life miserable from using abusive words,to getting violent .Immediately after wedding in December I lost my eyesight which was the first major blow to our marriage,negligence of doctors lead to high diabetes.My eyesight came back slowly but not completely,I could not see faces but I saw colors and started painting.I earned a lot and bought every basic thing required for the home . My marriage life was not successful It ended after so many arguments and unpleasant incidence .

I learnt Salsa dancing,started going for regular therapies..Made new friends and slowly forgot him .I was the first girl in India who danced with dialysis solution in the stomach on stage.I got very involved in Chennai Food Guide where I would share free recepies and pictures .I never ate the food as I barely ate,but I found all the positive ways to convert my sadness into joy and the best choice I ever made was Dance. Noone knew what was happening in my life ,in a year I got hospitalized 21 times and all the money for second transplant got exhausted .I wrote on FaceBook and got sponsorship through and by friends and well wishers. No one knew this since they could just see my smile,I cried every day in pain due to crambs,muscle strain,dehydration and what not.I used to go to two Salsa classes to keep myself active,it helped me a great deal.I had so many restrictions so there were so many things I could not do and who really wants to take responsibility anyway?There is so much one can do,but what really matters is the physical presence and touch and the affectionate words I longed to hear “everything will be fine”In this busy world,where everyone was on whatsapp no one understood my eyesight is really bad and its strenuous to be on it .I don’t drink,smoke,party or eat out makes me so boring isn’t it ?I would write about my days good and bad .I became an inspiration to everyone which felt great only that everyone got an inspiring person is a human being too he/she can never be perfect .I left salsa,my health worsened and the doctors told my parents I have no chances.My Mother never gave up .I was on hemo dialysis and I was bedridden now.It was 5 years we were waiting for a cadever now,on 29th july the day of  Eid when I was ready to attend my first Eid Milan party we received a call .I received a donor. I survived the transplant with the will of God and again experienced severe depression and isolation .Yes I was disoriented,sad,shattered,angry,shadows of my past were not leaving me,my heart was broken and I could not make amends with the changes in my life once again and also in the body.The body has to accept the kidney,any small noise was like a thunder everything scared me,I suspected everyone,I was inside my room laughing without a reason ,singing and dancing like no one is seeing .I had the hallucination again ,this time everything was dancing .The medications took a toll on me,I prayed and prayed night after night and God saved me .I found out that depression was a part and parcel of a transplant the levels are different and not everyone has it .16 years of an ailment was not a joke,it took me a while I became fine .I got back into dancing and performed in a group and solo number in Bangalore .My smile was back the hair and weight dropped but to me what mattered was I could live a day free of hospitals.

I visit the hospital once a month for routine checks,I live on life saving drugs and other medications.I held small cooking & dance workshops ,taught little kids but was never sure what should I do to start my career from a scratch.During my illness My Mother and I learnt the basics on jewelry making,soon we started getting loads of orders internationally,people encouraged me,loved my designs and sense of colour. I started this business with a few thousand rupees today my  Brand is named after Lavender feel beautiful!It signifies-love,devotion,elegance,grace  and positive aura.Today its almost seven years I think ,I have completed 22 collections and participated in over 6 events.My aim is to have a Brand that represents originality and quality.Everything is exclusive especially the color combinations and patterns.

I received an honorary award from Chennai Food Guide by Mr Mohd Ali ji the “Hero award”.Do I ever feel lonely ? of course but the art of living is when we begin to enjoy our own company.We should be enough for ourselves.I have cried maybe once on the dance floor because that was a rough phase for me.Like anyone else I also want a family and I have dreams .The reason I ever experienced all this logically was because of negligence and spiritually because God wanted me to now how special I was to him .I think my purpose is to live ,and everyday when I do live someone will hear about me and not give up .I used to do a little charity by cooking and dancing for the underprivileged if there is always some who is undergoing the same like us there is someone undergoing worse .I am a living miracle and when I met Eddie the Mambo King personally he said “I am the walking testimony of God,every dancer should be inspired by your story and you are his child “.Why do such traumatic events happen? So that we don’t take our lives for granted,learn to love ourselves,cherish the ones we love and believe that this world moves on faith .There is so much good in this world and I have seen it the bad is much overrated.Yes we need to change our perspectives and find peace within.I learnt yoga and understood when we meditate every problem is resolved on its own.A blessing does not always comes in riches it comes as miracles and the day I became one I started believed in one.You know your body the best,you are your own best friend ,be kind to yourself first if you think something is wrong with you ask for help.If you see someone is depressed lend them a patient ear .Overall about 80 percent people in India suffer from depression it does not spread and even if it did there is always a medicine for every ailment.With no life insurance or financial support,jobs,quota I live working every single day day in and day out.

I am alive and that is what that matters .”

I Live my life Queen size and so should everyone !

BEST SET OF ADVISE

c.jpg
Hey Happy Morning/Evening everyone !!
This is my Fb/IG post today (shared it from a friends wall) This is a very interesting post and I want everyone to benefit.
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST SET OF ADVISE l HAVE EVER READ. ALL MANKIND NEEDS THIS ADVICE!!!

1. Take risks in your life. If you win, you can lead; if you lose, you can guide.

2. People are not what they say but what they do; so judge them not from their words but from their actions.

3. When someone hurts you, don’t feel bad because it’s a law of nature that the tree that bears the sweetest fruits gets maximum number of stones.

4. Take whatever you can from your life because when life starts taking from you, it takes even your last breath.

5. In this world, people will always throw stones on the path of your success. It depends on what you make from them – a wall or a bridge.

6. Challenges make life interesting; overcoming them make life meaningful.

7. There is no joy in victory without running the risk of defeat.

8. A path without obstacles leads nowhere.

9. Past is a nice place to visit but certainly not a good place to stay.

10. You can’t have a better tomorrow if you are thinking about yesterday all the time.

11. If what you did yesterday still looks big to you, then you haven’t done much today.

12. If you don’t build your dreams, someone else will hire you to build theirs.

13. If you don’t climb the mountain; you can’t view the plain.

14. Don’t leave it idle – use your brain.

15. You are not paid for having brain, you are only rewarded for using it intelligently.

16. It is not what you don’t have that limits you; it is what you have but don’t know how to use.

17. What you fail to learn might teach you a lesson.

18. The difference between a corrupt person and an honest person is: The corrupt person has a price while the honest person has a value.

19. If you succeed in cheating someone, don’t think that the person is a fool…… Realize that the person trusted you much more than you deserved.

20. Honesty is an expensive gift; don’t expect it from cheap people.

Love, Devi ❤

Keep Pushing Forward !

change.jpg

Just so you know…. when people want to stay the same and YOU grow it might freak them out!

Don’t let it steal your joy, sparkle, fire, calling, evolution.

Remember , We aren’t supposed to stay the same. You don’t become great because you were born great, you become great because you will not settle for anything less in your life.

we need to listen👂 Walk and Work to break the ceiling and live out the life God intended for us.

KEEP PUSHING and do not take advice from BROKE or most importantly UNHAPPY ☹️ people!

Love, Devi ❤

Make Today Count !
