Good Evening,

How are you all doing? Did anything exciting happen lately? I am sorry for my absence, life has kept me, but I have a free few days a head of me to be around more.

Let’s Start Today’s Post with some Food for the Soul  

“Expectation is the root of all heartache”.  _William Shakespeare

quote

I guess I need not say much about the quote I am sharing with all of you today. I am a person of high expectations – despite trying to develop myself into a better person and having reduced my level of expectation from all around me, I have not reached the level where I would have zero expectation.

I guess it is not human to reach that kind of a stage, but still I would love to reach a stage where my expectations are so low that it does not guarantee any heartbreaks if things don’t happen just like how I want it to be. I really don’t know whether I will ever reach that situation but yes, I am trying…

It’s Getting Cold . Now Let’s Have Some Food Talk To Warm & Nourish Our Soul!!
