Five Greats

​”Any time you start feeling sorry for yourself or you go into a rant about how bad life sucks, you immediately have to name five greats.”

This is what Georgia tells Moses, in The Law of Moses

I thought this is a wonderful way of changing my perspective for at least a few moments, in order to remind myself how there are so many other countless blessings that make all the bad parts worthwhile.

So my five greats for today are:

1. Having people I can count on

2. Another month of summer break 

3. Chocolates (because, duh!)

4. Books, of course 

5. Swimming 

Anytime you feel low, try this out 🙂

Word Prompt

Ten years of marriage,

all were spent childless

Nine other families,

always looked down on her

Eight failed appointments,

at the doctor’s

Seven days everyday,

she prayed for a miracle

Six different advices,

from ‘with-child’ couples

Five times they wondered,

if it was enough

Four hundred tests,

all in vain

Three miscarriages,

Two hearts break

One buried baby;

Was all that remained.

Road Trips and Bridges

Last summer, my siblings and I went on a trip to Pakistan’s northern areas (Gilgit, Baltistan).

The natural beauty we spotted took away our breath each time. Since the roads have been constructed by cutting down huge mountains and rocks – most of the rides were bumpy but nevertheless, extremely fun.

We spotted several bridges along the way and keeping this week’s challenge in mind, I decided to share a few of them with you.

I always prefer road trips over airplane flights; because to me experiencing nature, all kinds of rides and even road troubles – is all part of the adventure.
