Life is Full of Beauty

21 Comments

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” Ashley Smith

Noticing the smallest of acts, the simplest of smile, the sheer innocence of a child…that’s what beauty is all about. When you notice and see something, and it makes you feel beautiful thoughts, that is Beauty in its purest sense.

I do notice. I notice all the beauty around me. As I type this, all I can think of is a bed of sunflowers with my little girl and me  playing in it-catching butterflies…
The only person who makes me think of a bed of sunflowers is Andrea @ brite-talk.  She is just the brightest and most beautiful souls I have recently met. In all her beauty and sunny wisdom she bestowed upon me the “Beautiful Blogger” award. yippee! And believe me…I’m completely floored. Thank you!

7 things about me you never ever knew

One part about receiving the “Beautiful Blogger” Award is to share 7 things about me which you normally wouldn’t know. So here goes-

  1. I’m extremely goofy. Yes, very naughty and very very giggly. My hubby often tells me to “grow up”..which I completely and utterly refuse to do 😉 I will remain a giggly, naughty, catching butterflies and gazing at the stars little girl forever and ever.
  2. I am extremely creatively inclined. Which means, I used to be the best in Arts&Crafts, painting and sketching all throughout my school years. I won many many painting competitions and was all my teachers(especially art) pet. Hence, you see me playing around  with the themes of the blog here too. I love colors and vibrancy. I am always in awe of all the stories and feelings just a few brush strokes can tell. I make ceramic flowers, do glass painting, do embroidery etc..
  3. I can be very very very very talkative at times 😉 I was often referred to as chatterbox by my school teachers. This habit comes in handy when I give my Motivational Seminars, where I do all the talking 🙂
  4. I was brought up in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. Lived there till I got married and then shifted to Hyderabad, India with my loving hubby. Since then have lived in Hyderabad, Pune & now Jamshedpur…the many cities of my beautiful India. My folks are all originally from Bombay or Mumbai.
  5. I’m extremely loyal&patriotic. I love my family. I love my country.  I love this world. I will remain a proud citizen of this Universe all my life. Rejoice in thier victory and cry in its failures.
  6. I’m a chococoffeeholic! I love my chocolate and my coffee. Although I have both at a minimum, my love for these two never diminishes.
  7. My aim other than helping people and easing their pain is to spread love and happiness to each and every heart in this Universe. I dream of a world full of smiles and laughter.

Lets Spread the Beauty

Like I mentioned before, I notice. I notice beautiful souls, who share, care and love. Souls who make this world, and my world so so beautiful. I present and pass forward the BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER AWARD to …

  2. Zeenat, this is a great post for getting to know you better. I know you’ve said you were a bit goofy before, but I always had you down for a kind of serious, calm, person. So, it’s great to share that little more about you.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We’ve grown a lot together over the last few years, along a few other blogger friends. It’s a privilege knowing you.

    • HI Steven,
      I know…people have that notion about me-serious and uptight kind of notion…when in reality I am totally the opposite. I am calm, just very naughty too 😉
      And the privilege is all mine…I have learned so much form you…and I continue to grow cause I derive so much inspiration form you. Thank you!
      Much Love~

  3. Hi Zeenat

    I LOVE what you shared and learning more about you! In fact your point number 2….. well I just picked up on this from the first moment I met you. Your creativity shines soooooo brightly! I love all the butterflies and flowers that you shower the world with so often. In fact, this is a good time to say, wow, do I ever LOVE the new look of your site!!!! It is crisp, clean, but oh so ever colorful and creatively beautiful!

    And I thank you so much for the lovely award and mention. Wow, what a surprise. Thank you for the beautiful things you said about me, my heart overflows with joy!

  4. Thank you, Z! I’m really glad that you enjoy my writing. It’s an honor to be included here with these great bloggers. I remember when you were first starting out, and only a handful of us knew you. I knew then what a beautiful heart you have, and I am so glad to see how far you’ve come and how many people you have been able to share your wisdom and beautiful spirit with. You’re amazing, and I am honored to know you.

    Your deep loyalty, your chocolate addiction and your affinity for conversation are more than enough to render us the best of friends! Stay the same ….

    • HI Farnoosh Darling,
      Three times you say…well that only means one thing..that you are thrice as beautiful 🙂 And that my lovely gal is a compliment of gigantic proportions 🙂

It is an amazing thing that people from every part of the globe can share with and encourage one another. Just goes to show that positive, loving energy knows no borders and cannot be restrained. Thank you for including me in your circle. By the way, I love your new blog theme!

    • HI Jonathan.

  9. Hi Zeenat … that’s great – I have to say before I read your brief bio .. that your header is beautiful and please don’t change it!!!!!!??????

    Your combination of art and chattiness .. is such a good line .. and shows through .. but you write so well .. that International school must have stood you in good stead?

    I’m really pleased I called in today .. I passed on your blog to a few friends here .. a friend from Kerala and my 18 year old god-daughter .. and others .. it’s such an interesting read ..

    See you soon .. with your sky blues, and hazy pinks, and vibrant sun .. with splashes of ultra colours .. cheers Hilary

  10. Thanks for sharing Zeenat. I was always drawn to you by our tweets and correspondence on FB. This is my first visit and I LOVED it. My top fave is being goofy. I am soooo goofy that everyone thinks my son is my brother. We play everywhere we go and have such a strong crazy bond thats very child-like. Anyway THANKS THANNKS for the list of bloggers. I knew some of them but needed to reconnect with a few. I appreciate you listing them.
    I too “dream of a world full of smiles and laughter.”
    Your so wonderful. I appreciate your friendship Zeenat =)

    Love Light & Blessings,
    Therese Miu

  11. Dear Zeenat,
    Here I am (late as usual). I’m so humbled by your choice to include me among such distinguished people. Thank you so much for this honor. You radiate love and beauty and I am blessed with your friendhip.
    Love and peace be with thee always,
    TiTi
