Loving Friendship




*I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to fall...like I've been there before. I'll be there for you, coz your there for me too* by Remembrandts. This is by far one of my fav songs when it comes to friendship. Being a backbone for your close friends and people who are trustworthy! Often times, we look for our family for support...I have a great family but I've always been very happy to have such fantastic gang of friends! Here are some great tips for friendship you should keep in mind!

1. Be Yourself

It may seem like a no-brainer, but a lot of teens struggle not to lose their identity once they become part of a group of friends. Though who you are is always changing, especially during your teenage years, some aspects of your personality will stay pretty much the same. Figure out what those things are and think hard about who you want to be, then present yourself honestly and genuinely to the people you hang around with. Sometimes you're going to disagree or not be the most popular member of the group. However, you will always feel you've been true to yourself -- and that you haven't become somebody else's clone.

 2. Avoid Gossip

Friends don't spread rumors about other friends -- even within their own group. If you've heard something shocking about s-omeone you're friends with, find a considerate way of asking them about it personally. If you're not sure how to talk to them about it, seek the advice of one other trusted friend, but don't let the discussion turn into a free-for-all about everything you don't like about the person. You certainly wouldn't be happy if someone did that to you, so set a good example for others -- and for yourself.



3. Defend Your Friends
At some point, somebody you're not tight with is going to question the integrity of one of your friends. It's important to find out both sides of the story in a situation like this, but it's also a good chance to show your friend that you have faith in them by standing up for their reputation. Whenever you can, be respectful of the other person's question or criticism but emphasize that your friend is a good person who deserves the respect of others, even when they make mistakes.

4. Protect Your Friends

When a friend of yours is making not-so-great decisions -- whether it's about drugs, alcohol, studying or dating -- do your best to look out for them. This doesn't mean telling them what to do constantly, but you can offer gentle advice and guidance from time to time. If you give advice in a caring way that shows you value your friend and respect their feelings and wishes, they're much more likely to pay attention. Chances are, what you think means a lot to them, and you can be a good influence.

5. Be Careful About Boyfriends and Girlfriends

It's a good rule of thumb to stray away from dating the exes of your friends. It's an even better rule of thumb to avoid dating the people your friends have crushes on -- or people who have turned down your friends for dates. Even if your friend gives you the go-ahead, wait a while to get involved with someone who broke their heart or betrayed their confidence.


6. Return the Favor

There are times when a friend will lend you a jacket, a textbook or a shoulder to cry on. A good friend will pick you up when you're stuck in a rainstorm and listen patiently when you share a problem with them. Be sure that you're equally as generous with your time, your emotions and your possessions. People will take notice, and it's something to feel good about.

7. Knowing my friends 
Some of my closest ones for over a decade who r dere for my thick and thin :) I've always loved that.  They listen to me and vent out at the same time make you relax. After all this time I still remember - slumber parties with my besties, talking till late hours, cooking & girl gossips, watching movies and even sipping champagne! Always have a group of friends you trust. If you can't trust them or be comfortable with them...I don't think those are actually friends! I've gone on expeditions, some great holidays and had a blast of time with my dearest friends and I wanna scream out to you guy for being so amazing. Have great friends and preserve your memories! I would be away for a bit...but will be back soon!! ;) Keep visiting and have fun!

Sun, Sand and Beaches







After packing (trying very hard to figure my summer wear) for my trip to LA and Vegas, finally I came to a conclusion to make the most of this holiday! We were headed on our honeymoon and thanks to all our hectic travelling to meet family, we totally kept delaying this trip!! Here are the most popular Los Angeles beaches in Southern California. The best public beaches in LA I visited and wow what a blast. Somehow beaches always give me a very calm and relaxing feeling. Watching the water swift away into the tides and they rush towards your feet ...or maybe the soothing calm feeling of waves relaxes your senses so much. Los Angeles California most visited beaches are all a bit different. Some are family beaches for camping and picnicing, surfing and beach bonfires and swimming and sunbathing. All these beaches in the LA County are top rated, and they are also known as the cleanest beaches in the Los Angeles area. I was really impressed with the cleaniless and how well maintained. There was Laguna beach,that I really enjoyed except the 1000 steps thats if famous for. You need to climb down 1000 steps to reach this beach. While going down I was fine, it was while returning my height phobhia got the best of me and I had to sit and wait to avoid anxiety ( a lil fact about me you get to experience heh)


Venice Beach:This is a boardwalk people watching beach. It's where you go to be entertained, more than sunning and swimming. The colorful parade of people on the Venice Ocean Front. Boardwalk is eclectic and ever-changing, and lots of fun. Lots of talented (sometimes crazy) performers, body-builders, jugglers, palm-readers, artists of all kinds are there to show off and entertain. Once you have had enough of crazy fun on the boardwalk, enjoy the sandy beach and beautiful shoreline views. Afterwards head over to nearby Abbott Kinney Boulevard's unique restaurants for lunch or dinner.






Malibu's Beach:The Surfrider Beach is one of the most popular of the Los Angeles beaches, which makes it one of the most surfed beaches in Los Angeles County. You don't have to be an experienced surfer to appreciate this sport, or the cool atmosphere of this beach. Sometimes it's better to be a spectator and just take it all in. There is an adjacent lagoon and a bird sanctuary. And a quarter mile walking trail offers activities for non-surfers.


Santa Monica Beach:The most popular beach in Los Angeles. It's located just north of the Santa Monica Pier. Santa Monica State Beach is the most visited beach in Los Angeles. The two mile long beach offers plenty of space for fun beach activites, or a bike ride. Roller-blading is also very popular here. The weather was perfect and as I walked with my darling hubby and his friends...It hit upon me, sometimes to experience the simple pleasures like walking across the beach can give you so much peace and happiness. So I would recommend, that while here, take a stroll on the historic Santa Monica Pier, and check out the Pacific Park amusement park with the ferris wheel, or have lunch at one of the many pier restaurants.  As the Sunset, I looked across the beautiful beach houses, and pictured myself growing old with my love and wondering will this dream come true..Well, hoping for a Dream is always a good thing right. So, I encourage you to pursue your dreams... Like the famous song says, 'Dream a lil dream...'

Soul Friend







Its always taken me a lotta time to become Best friends. Maybe because most of my life I spend travelling and not really having a base in a city to maintain with people. Howver, I have always cherish some of my oldest friendships which go back to 15 years and more. One such friend is preets. We were good friends when we worked together but once I moved jobs we lost touch.suddenly destiny had a way to meeting again through a friend and then we realized that we live in same area just one block apart! It gave us an opproutnity to get back a friendship I am so grateful to have in my life. Few people leave an impact like preets does and I'm till date so very happy we met again and she's like a sister I always wanted and now have in the form of a friend :)


Rarely do I have an opportunity to express myself about my dear friends. People who have been absolutely sunshine ;) They are special and caring people, who always have a special place in my heart. This blog is for one such friend, Preeti. She is by far one of the kindest, dearest people in my life. I remember on days when I have been grumpy beyond words Preets has been someone who alwaysssssssss makes me smile. She has a special wya of making sure to cheer me up. Spritiual beyond words, and she has really taught me the art of being silent. She doesn't raise her voice, shes calm and cool and knows how to handle situations, contrast to my ever hyper nature. One of the prized moments for me was to discover she lives nearby and that we would meet up so frequently, head out for parties, shopping, eating and walks around our place.

Such fun and memories I will always treasure for life.Here's to you Preets, thanks for being such an angel.

Lessons Learnt


I've become very aware of how the forces of the world work most of the time. It doesn't make me a expert but definitely gives me a take on how I've looked at life.There will always be people trying to pull you down. I've learnt this concept called energies from this NY Times Bestselling book called Secret . People who are rude or being very disrespectful to you generally have a hidden agenda. They are looking to steal your energies. The secret is that we all have limited energies in our system. It's important not to deplete your energy. Notice when you fight, don't you feel drained out? That's not just physically, it's about your body and soul feeling this way.  When you realize this and rather choose to be silent or let go, its the best option. You have chosen not waste your time with it then your definitely gonna lead a more peaceful life."  I've come across Cynthia Lee Shelton,  who is a psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience. She has sought out knowledge and educated herself about various subjects involving the body-mind-spirit connection. I've loved her insights!


Tip 1 - If You Can't Forgive Someone, Forgive Your Self
When we are in a traumatic situation, it is important to forgive ourselves for being in the situation in the first place. Look at the situation and see what you can learn from it. By doing this, you have now switched it from a negative to a positive. It is now a tool to keep the same thing from happening again, because of the understanding that you have obtained.

Tip 2 - Imagine the Person You are Trying to Forgive as a Newborn Baby
Sometimes it is difficult to forgive someone, because you see "all his or her negative traits". A way to get past that is to see them as a newborn baby when they are free of those traits, and still have an innocence about them. This makes forgiving them easier.

Tip 3 - Write "I Forgive (Person, or Situation)" and then Write Your Automatic Negative Thought. An unconscious thought that is getting in the way of your ideal weight. Write it as many times as you need. You might write it 20 times and that is enough. You might have to write a little each day, as you keep getting closer to the unconscious thought.



Tip 4 - Imagine Yourself and the Person You Want to Forgive Surrounded in Golden Light.
Your imagination is a free tool that is unlimited in its scope. So let's use it. When you have trouble forgiving someone, see him or her surrounded in the most beautiful loving light. Then do this for your self. When you do this, it helps you to not be "sending" negative thoughts their way. It is amazing how often this can turn negative situations around. The other person starts reacting differently due to the new energy coming their way. It also helps you to view the situation from a higher perspective.

Tip 5 - If forgiveness is difficult for you, start with forgiving the person and not the deed.
We are often angry at what someone did, how they acted in a situation. We want to be right, and make them wrong. So we don't let go. For that reason, let us start with forgiving the person and not the deed. Remember the times they did something nice to you or for you. This will assist you in forgiving them.

Tip 6 - Always Remember to Forgive Yourself First
When you forgive your self first, it frees you up to look at any situation more objectively. When you don't forgive your self, you beat your self up, and then you just continue a negative downward spiral. People who have mastered this art are really the happy ones! I'm still discovering my route there...:) here's wishing the same for you...

Tip 6 - Be the bigger person, and classy one

When we think about legends like Audrey Hepburn, we associate grace and class from her. When you forgive u come across as the mature person. Be gracious.
