There are stars you haven't seen and loves you haven't loved. There's light you haven't felt and sunrises yet to dawn. There are dreams you haven't dreamt and days you haven't lived and nights you won't forget and flowers yet to grow. There is more to you that you have yet to know. May the spring bring its glory, May the flowers bloom again, May the bulbuls sing again, May the glittering waters of Dal shine again, May the pristine waters of Jehlum and Sindh keep bringing tranquility, May our streets be crowded with our people again, May our kids flock the playgrounds, May the mountains keep echoing the sound of Azaan, May the sprawling meadows speak of its peace. Keep us in your prayers 🙏🙏🙏 . . 📷: @nilotpalsinhaofficial Music & Video: 'KSHMIR' by Nilotpal Sinha https://youtu.be/gislU4ayI4w We claim no rights to the music, video, recording, production or distribution of this copyrighted material.

Repost @beingkashmiriorg Let’s join hands to help our needy and stranded Kashmiri sisters and brothers. Thank you everyone for all your support always. We are trying to help and reach out to our Kashmiri students in Pune who have not been able to reach their families back home and they are struggling with funds and other necessities. We are all aware of the current situation in Kashmir, so in this scenario please reach out to us for any kind of assistance in Pune or if you know anyone needs in assistance, feel free to drop a message anytime, we will try our best to help in whatever possible way.
I know it doesn’t look like it right now but you can get through this. You can dig yourself out of this hole. One more time. I know it doesn’t look like it right now but God is listening, somehow, somewhere, he sees what you’re going through and he is not going to leave you in this mess alone. He won’t leave you unattended. He will not let your prayers go unanswered when he’s your only hope. I know it doesn’t look like it right now but someone out there is making their way to you to make your life a little bit easier or carry some of your burdens with you. Someone out there wants to be by your side so you don’t have to face it all alone. Someone out there wants to make up for all the things that you were deprived of and all the people you lost. Someone out there wants to make you happy. I know it doesn’t look like it right now but the things that aren’t making sense to you are about to form a certain picture that you can see clearly when the time is right. The dots are about to connect so you can solve the riddle. The closure is coming to you. The lesson is being learned. You’re on your way to better and bigger things. I know it doesn’t look like it right now but you can still fight. One more time. It’s always the last key in the chain that opens the door and it’s always the hardest few seconds in the race that makes you a winner. It’s right before the happy ending that everything goes wrong so you can try to make it right. So you can safely say the worst is over and it can only get better from here. Because the truth is we will all get our share of the good and the bad days. We will have our breakthroughs and our breakdowns. We will all get our twenty seconds of fame and glory and we will get our twenty seconds of misery and disappointment. We will all get our share of joy and sorrow but the trick is not to let our sorrow linger or let our joy delude us. The trick is to bounce back quicker than we fall and look forward to a brighter future instead of dwelling on a darker past. The trick is to keep believing that you’re stronger than your pain and you will surely, overcome it. . . 📷 : @jeryn_james
@repost @travelista_in_saree "Lipton chai piyoge ya Noon chai? " Aunty asked me as I entered her place to wish her on Eid -12th August, 2019. Previous day had seen protests & strict curfew was back. Celebrations were muted, lavish Eid spread was reduced to a sombre fare & my Aunty was fussing about my veg diet & non availability of Paneer for me. During my 3 days in curfewed Kashmir, I just kept on hugging people (it wasn't easy to reach them )& listening to their stories. More than anger, it's filled with betrayal, pain & helplessness. "How could they do this to us," was a common question. "Didn't our consent or voice matter at all?" was another. Media is busy chasing big stories but common man has woes too- A mother who stood in queue for hours for a mere 30 second call to her son. A boatsman grumbling about rising levels of Dal lake water as authorities are shut & it's impact on houseboats. A girl who has to appear in 10th boards was worried about her loss. Another one had missed SBI exam that has been postponed in the State. A youth numb by this sudden caging of entire valley, wondered if people will ever forget this. Much more was said, but that's for me to absorb & reflect. I am no reporter or political analyst. I am a mere human being who believes that love, compassion and dialogue is the key to humanity. The city is not positively celebrating as one part of media shows & nor are the rampant attrocities happening as other part is showing. It's in between - there is fear due to non communication, people are mostly in the house except for areas around airport& Dal lake, protests have occured and their have been injuries but mostly, a deathly silence prevailed during daytime while choppers hovered in the sky. Evenings are different- that's when you see resilience of people to keep their lives going. To sum it up, every person I met was only worried about my well being & safe return. Even in these times, they couldn't let go of their kashmiriyat. I wonder will WE extend same warmth if we were in their shoes?
There are stars you haven't seen and loves you haven't loved. There's light you haven't felt and sunrises yet to dawn. There are dreams you haven't dreamt and days you haven't lived and nights you won't forget and flowers yet to grow. There is more to you that you have yet to know. 🌸🌸🌸 Thanks for this beautiful photo! 🙋♂️ 📷 Photo credit @khai_mi 💕 - Tag us or use our hashtag #beingkashmiri to be featured on our page!
I dislike excessive optimism. It doesn’t give me comfort when people oversell the concept of positivity to someone who is in the midst of extreme suffering. This is because sometimes it feels like a slap in the face, especially if the positivity peddler has zero idea of another’s suffering. And although I’m hopeful and not cynical by nature, I have a deep appreciation for hard truth and blunt honesty. You can handle the pain. The pain, although at times feels like it will never stop, will eventually go away. The physical pain from illness, injury, or any harm will not last forever. The scars, whether physical or emotional, will never go away, but they canheal. They will be there forever to remind you how strong you were in overcoming that pain. How strong you were in doing all you needed to do to heal from it. The scars are your battle wounds… they tell a story of your strength and bravery. So breathe in breathe out. Find some peace in knowing that each burden you are experiencing is only temporary. While it may only seem never ending, that it becomes too heavy to carry, remember that this too shall pass. Our lives can be better when we understand the basic reality is that not much is in our control. We cannot control many things that happen to us, from heartbreak to illness to death of loved ones. The only thing we can control is how we choose to move through and forward from those situations. Look at the hardships you face as opportunities to fight against the odds, persevere, and grow. Because your life, and what you make of it, is yours for the taking. Although you cannot control the variables of life, you have the power to choose the steps you wish to take to achieve goals, to find happiness. You will take these chosen steps knowing that in any instant, something out of your control may change your path. Be reassured knowing that it is your choices that determine whether you will live your best life. You can choose to suffer, or choose to rise above, and I promise that you can always rise above. Most importantly, in finding your strength and striving to persevere, you will always be able to handle anything. Maria
To be human is to understand that life is going to meet you with circumstances that will bury you deep within yourself, with things that will hurt to acknowledge, with people who will fumble with the way you feel so deeply. And to be human is to understand that life is going to meet you with opportunities that make your chest well with gratitude, with things that will make you want to live again, with people who will hold even the most damaged parts of who you are and kiss them softly, folding them back into you a little less bruised, and a little less broken, than they were before. To be human is to understand that you have the capacity to be the person you have always hoped to be, that you don’t have to surrender yourself to the person you were when you were navigating your sadness, or your confusion, or how lost you felt in this world. To be human is to understand that you don’t have to hang your mistakes along your spine — you are strong enough to forgive them, to do the hard work, to confront what is heavy within you. To be human is to understand that you are strong enough to set it all down, to let it go, to call it by it’s name so it can no longer control you. To be human is to understand that happiness isn’t a constant. But to be human is to understand that neither is sorrow, or grief, or heartache. To be human is to feel it all, to welcome the lessons that come with the dark days, to welcome the softness that comes from the lightness of what saves you. To be human is to try, with every inch of your patchwork soul, to be proud of who you are. To care. To heal. To be your own home, even on the days you don’t like yourself, even on the days where it doesn’t come naturally. To be human is to grow in the ups, and to grow in the downs. So keep growing. Keep growing. 💛 Words : @rainbowsalt Photo : @the_kashmiri_lad
We are Kashmir, We shall welcome you with open arms always , to mesmerising exteriors of natural beauty and warm interiors, we carry heart on our hand and always ready to pass on the souvenirs of smile. But again its time when everything seems chaotic and uncertain, though no official announcements have been made for us but a few Government orders(sudden order of evacuation of tourists and Amarnath Yatris ) have added a lot of ambiguity. Every year we, the travel industry of Kashmir start year with high hopes to bring peace in Kashmir by getting tourists that helps to boost economy of our state and same time creates the positive and happy ripples of peace everywhere. We work hard to fetch tourists towards Kashmir, now again due to this sudden spurt in these uncomfortable news that have been floating around and the chances of any normal scenario look bleak as of now. We all Kashmiris suffer in this, its again uncertain, what Government is upto, nothing is clear just the rumour mongering everywhere that adds to chaos. Let’s all pray for peace and hope everything returns to normal soon. We are thankful to our non Kashmiri people who have been sending messages and asking about our well being. This too shall pass. Peace and blessings ✌🏻. Thank you
If you are planning to visit Kashmir this month, as of now nothing is clear from Government or any other source, situation seems chaotic. So in this situation we would recommend to place your plan on hold till everything is clear, there is an official advisory issued from Government sources. Happy weekend.
In every drop of water , there is a story of Life.🌸 .

Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path. 🌸 Thanks for this beautiful photo! 🙋♂️ Photo credit @as_we__travel 💕 - Tag us or use our hashtag #beingkashmiri to be featured on our page!
Love should not confuse you. It should not make you feel like you are not good enough, it should not make you feel like you have to change in order to be worthy of it. Love should not exist within games, within frustration. Love is not a power struggle, it is not something you should have to catch or chase or hunt within the world. Love is confidence. Love is ruthless assurance — the kind you feel deep down in your bones. Love is knowing that someone cares for you, it is the knowledge that you are appreciated and valued and chosen every single day. Love is security. Love should not condemn you. Love should not vilify you for feeling deeply, for loving hard, for being the kind of person who only knows how to be soft, who only knows how to burn. Love should protect you, it should stand up for you, it should encourage the tenderness, the depth, the fire. Love should be a safe place. Love should not walk away from you. It should not flee when things get hard. It should not run, should not abandon you when the difficulties of life hang heavy in the air. Love is stronger than anything you will ever know — it has the capacity to endure, it has the foundation to overcome. Love does not give up. Love does not take the easy way out. Love fights. Love always fights. Love should not break you. My god, if there is anything you should know about love, it is that is should never destroy you, it should never tear you to pieces only to leave you alone. It should not make you ache, it should not bruise your soul. Love should never bare its teeth when things get tough, it should not use your vulnerabilities against you when it feels threatened, or hurt. No, love should not break you — love should build you. It should encourage you, it should inspire you to be exactly who you have always wanted to be. Love should be a resounding anchor of peace in your life, it should take care of you. Love should challenge you, it should teach you. It should stand by your side while you figure yourself out, it should hold your hand while you grow. Love should always leave you better than it found you. Love should always be soft. Please, don’t ever forget that. Words : @rainbowsalt 📷: Sheila

I got to this stunning lake after one of the most scenic treks I have ever done. After around a days trek, I took a turn on the track and the lake was right in front of me. Surprisingly the first view of the lake was a huge let down. I was looking at it from too close. But then I moved to another spot which was a much further away and offered a clearer view of the lake. It was then that I began to see its real magnificence. Sometimes you just have to step back and look at things from far away to see their real beauty.

You’re going to realize it one day — that happiness was never about your job, or your degree, or being in a relationship. Happiness was never about following in the footsteps of all of those who came before you, it was never about being like the others. One day, you’re going to see it — that happiness was always about the discovery, the hope, the listening to your heart and following it wherever it chose to go. Happiness was always about being kinder to yourself, it was always about embracing the person you were becoming. One day, you will understand. That happiness was always about learning how to live with yourself, that happiness was never in the hands of other people. It was always about you. It was always about you. ✨ Thanks for this beautiful photo!💃🏻 Photo credit @aakritiranaofficial 💕 - Tag us or use our hashtag #beingkashmiri to be featured on our page!
What is happiness for you ? So you want to be happy? Then stop letting the smallest things ruin your whole entire day. If you’re bored with your daily routine, do something unexpected. Stop complaining about how alone you are when you’re surrounded by people who actually care about you. Forget all the drama and let go of all the grudges you’ve been holding. Take a risk for once. Let yourself be happy, because you deserve it. ✨ Thanks for this beautiful photo! 💃🏻 Photo credit @yourfemalemusaafir 💕 - Tag us or use our hashtag #beingkashmiri to be featured on our page!
Don’t just give your heart to any guy, give it to someone who reaches for your hand during a prolonged moment of silence, just to remind you they’re still by your side. Give your heart to a man who pulls you close after a fight instead of pushing you away. Give it to a man who doesn’t make you doubt yourself or causes you to feel guilty for something you didn’t do. Give your heart to someone who’ll comfort you throughout periods of insecurity, when you’re feeling inadequate or lost. Someone who continuously reminds you of your worth. Give your heart to a guy who would never cause you to feel inferior in your relationship, because he’ll do everything his power to make you feel the opposite. Give it to a man who shows genuine interest in your passions and supports you in every aspect of your life. Someone who will go the extra mile to make you smile. Give your heart to a guy who will make you a priority instead of a second option. A guy will follow you anywhere in the world merely because a life without you is unimaginable. Give your heart to a person who asks if something is wrong, instead of keeping silent for the sake of not starting an argument. Give it to the guy who takes responsibility for his actions and apologizes when he’s done something wrong. Someone who doesn’t allow an argument to overshadow your relationship or keeps score. Give it to the man who shows up at your doorstep to apologize simply because the thought of you being upset hurts him. Give your heart to a person who finds time to text you when he’s out with his friends rather than waiting until the end of the evening. Give it to someone who won’t take your feelings for granted and reminds you how he feels each day. Give your heart to a man who will safeguard it with his life, because he knows the true value it holds. Don’t just give your heart to anyone. Find someone spectacular and never let go.

Meadows I cover with flowers for you, Come, my lover of flowers! Come, let me gather fresh jasmine for you, Never return these hours! Lilacs have bloomed by the river for you, Deeply the world is asleep, Still, though, no answer has reached me from you, Garlands of green I keep. What if they speak only evil of me? Who has been able to change destiny? Come, my lover of flowers! Habba Khatoon - “Never return these hours” Photo Credits : @_danishmir Tag or use #beingkashmiri to get feature on our page.
I need you to know that it gets better. I need you to know that the way you flay your heart open for the world is brave, that the way in which you refuse to be anything but soft, even when you feel like you may just break under the weight of feeling, is why you are needed here. I need you to know that beautiful things are vanishing each day, and I am proud of you for fighting to ensure that your soul is not one of them. You need to keep fighting. I need you to know that you will find the places that leave every tender part of you feeling calm and at peace with who you are. You will find the places that inspire everything inside of you to surge and ache with the hope and the beauty of being alive. These places, they are not where you were born, but they will be where you are reborn. You will know when you have found them. My god, will you know. I need you to know that there are others like you in this world; others who are messy hearted, others who feel things intensely, and without hesitation, others who cannot contain all that they hold within the worlds of their mind because they have only ever known how to pour, how to shatter, how to give and give and give. I need you to know that you will find these people, and they will become your family — you will take care of each other. You will grow together, in the moments between breaths, in the stunning silence that blankets your souls when you connect with the fact that in a world of billions, in the middle of all this noise, you found each other. But most of all, I need you to know that we are all here, together, dealing with what is dark and light within us. I need you to know that you aren't alone. I need you to know that you are going to survive this. I need you to know that one day, you’re going to be sitting in a place you love, surrounded by people who inspire you, and you’re going to think back to the storms, and the hurricanes that rattled through your bones, and you are going to smile. The clarity will wash over you. You will be free. You will be free. ✨ Words : @rainbowsalt Photo : @_danishmir

Simplicity. Being able to devote your mind, attention and time to just the few things that matter keeps you grounded and satisfied. Clearing your space of the things you don’t need, the people who don’t serve you and the thoughts that weigh on you lets you live a lighter, fuller, happier life. Most things are meant to be simple, we just complicate them in our minds. Photo credits : @iqbal javid88 Frame : @_danishmir
Please, keep looking. Not for a person, but for your passion, your love, your courage, your goals, your dreams, your happiness, yourself. Keep looking. Explore yourself before you explore another. Know your worth, know yourself. Only then will you know what you need over what you want. You need yourself to become your own. 🌸🌸🌸 🙋♂️ 📷 Photo credit @mohammadshahid__ 💕 - Tag us or use our hashtag #beingkashmiri to be featured on our page!

Dardistan Gurez valley ,full video coming soon ... 🎥 : @_danishmir 🙋♂️ . . Gurez has been on my bucket list since a while, so here I am in this beautiful lovely valley . Gurez is a haven for anybody who might be looking for some truly picturesque and sweepingly dramatic landscapes. It’s picturesque with a history that back to the era of Habba Khatoon and Yusuf shah Chek,though unknown to lot but perhaps the most beautiful place in Kashmir, with the Kishen ganga river flowing through it and the mountain peaks of indescribable grandeur making it a breathtaking for any traveller. It has beautiful meadows and treks for those who love to go for a stroll and are adrenaline rushed can go for hiking. It’s untouched by human, the life is simple and serves as a digital detox. Here you can connect with locals, and experience their culture, cuisine and their way of life in this natural habitat.
The place in the picture above is the amazingly beautiful Gurez valley. The peak in the center is Habba Khatoon.A trip to Gurez Valley is an unforgettable experience. Located at an attitude of 8,000 feet (2,400 m ), the place is a real treat for visitors as you get to see real village life – people still living in log and wooden houses,the place is a real treat for visitors,the stream flowing from Kishan Ganga River and a must-watch Habba Khatoon peak will only help you relieve your mind of the noisy city and its hustle and bustle. 🙋♂️ ♥️ Photo Credit : @_danishmir
And then it happens… One day you wake up and you’re in this place. You’re in this place where everything feels right. Your heart is calm. Your soul is lit. Your thoughts are positive. Your vision is clear.

I have been lucky enough to travel to some of the most beautiful places in the world. Kashmir happened as an unplanned, quick trip and I couldn't have thanked my stars enough.⠀ ⠀ What makes Kashmir unique is the combination of all the heavens, the most hospitable people, super delicious food, and the comfort you feel being here.⠀ ⠀ I'm already set for another trip in the winters ❤️💐 Are you ? ~ 🌸 Thanks for this beautiful photo ♥️ Photo credit : @surbhikaushik 💃 ~ Tag or use #beingkashmiri to get feature on our page ⠀
Take wrong turns, Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors and if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they’ll turn out. You’re curious and smart and bored, and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off. There are so many adventures that you miss because you’re waiting to think of a plan. To find them, look for tiny interesting choices and remember that you are always making up the future as you go. ❣️ . . Thanks for this beautiful photo : Photo credit : 📷: @musafir_dil_harshi ♥️ . .

At the end of the day, if someone wants to be in your life, they will be. Truly — they are capable, they will make the effort, they will show up. If they do not — let that be your closure. However, you do not have to hate them. You do not have to remember their contribution to your life as anything but beautiful. Do not ruin them in your mind, do not grip until you feel resentment. Instead, love them without attachment. Love the lessons they taught you. Wish them well every single time you think about them. Miss them, but do not ache for them to come back. If the people in your life left because they were not ready to value you, or love you, or be there for you, do not wish for them back, do not ask for them to be more than they can be at the moment. Wish for them to figure themselves out. Wish for them to grow. They are on their own journey — a journey you are not a part of. And that is okay. You have to learn that that is okay. So instead of focusing on the people who left, focus on the people in your life who have chosen to be there. Focus on the ones who stayed, on the ones who appreciate you and respect you. Focus on the people who match the love you give them, focus on the people who empower you and grow you and make your life beautiful. You are surrounded by human beings who will not shy away from the love you give. You are surrounded by human beings who know that they want you in their life, people who show you that every single day. Do not take them for granted. Do not lose touch of what you have, chasing what you no longer do. Trust me when I say — you will miss out on beautiful things if you continue to stay rooted in all of the ways you were wronged, if you continue to let your past pull you from experiencing what the present has to offer you. Do not close yourself off to your potential. Instead, open yourself to the world, and allow for it to fill that space with the kinds of people, the kinds of moments, and the kinds of experiences that exhilarate you, that compel you — that make you love yourself, and your life, and what you have to offer, more and more each day.

A two hour drive from Srinagar (47 kms ) will take you to acres upon acres of grassy meadow ringed by forests of pine, and towering beyond them, awesome and majestic snow-clad mountains. This is Yusmarg- close enough to Srinagar for a picnic, idyllic enough to make you want to stay for a few days. Here are walks of every sort - a leisurely amble along flower-strewn meadows or away to where a mighty river froths and crashes its way over rocks, its mild white foam earning it the name of Doodh Ganga. Further away, a captivating lake, Nilnag, is cradled by hills.Nilnag is a beautiful lake located 4 km downhill from Yusmarg. The water of the lake is blue in colour and thus, the lake is named as Nilnag. The lake is connected to the passage, passing through the dense forests. The site is a beautiful picnic spot and a trek of 13 km uphill leads to various beautiful tourist spots. 🌸 Thanks for this beautiful photo : @umermaqbool_ ♥️ 🌸 🌸 Tag or use #beingkashmiri to get feature on our page
Listen — if someone truly wants you around then they will do what it takes to keep you there. You can’t force someone to care about you. You can’t force someone to stay loyal to you. You can’t force someone to love you. Don’t stay because you think there isn’t more love out there. Don’t stay because you think you can’t find better. Don’t lie to yourself so they can seem like a better person. Don’t walk in a hurricane just to be by their side when you know they wouldn’t do the same for you. You have to understand that some people that enter your life aren’t meant to stay forever. Even when you feel with your entire being that this is it for you, they might not be. But I promise - someday you will meet someone and it will make perfect sense why your past happened. You will never feel the slightest bit less about yourself, because they will value all that you are. You probably feel trapped or as if this is far out of reach for you, but trust me when I say, this person is out there. This person is waiting for you. You are the person of someone’s dreams. Someone is going to show you the purest love. You have imperfections that someone is going to cherish. You have a laugh that someone is going to smile just thinking about it. You have dreams and goals that someone will support. You have a kindness in you that someone will admire. There is someone out there that will admire every nook and cranny of your mind. This person exists in this world, so remember this when you’re lying in bed at night with someone who makes you feel as though you’re alone in this world. I pray you find the love that makes you fall in love with yourself and I pray that you let go of the person that makes you feel anything less than amazing.

This person exists in this world, so remember this when you’re lying in bed at night with someone who makes you feel as though you’re alone in this world. I pray you find the love that makes you fall in love with yourself and I pray that you let go of the person that makes you feel anything less than amazing. Words: @victoriamshultz Photo: @dr_mehreen

When they come back I ask you to remember a few things. Remember how hard you cried during that final conversation. Remember how they broke the trust which binds every relationship. Remember how confused you felt in that moment, as your heart sank. But most of all I don’t want you to forget how easily they left without looking back. I want you to remember how hard it was to sleep and eat and function during those first few days that turned to weeks that turned to months. I want you to remember the friends and family that were there picking you up at your worst and how their heart broke too. I want you to remember how long you stared at your phone hoping it would ring. I want you to remember how difficult dating was again after them because you gave your heart away so easily to someone who did not want to keep it. I want you to remember those really dark nights no one knows about and the thoughts that plagued your mind. I want you to remember the insecurities. The doubts. The uncertainty. The pain you got used to. But I also want you to remember other parts too. I want you to remember how you had to pick yourself up again. How you had to be strong when you felt so weak. How you chose to love despite being hurt. How you had to forgive even when the apology never came. Most of all, I want you to remember how hard you fought for your heart. How you healed it all on your own. How you rebuilt yourself, how you gave yourself the closure you never got. When they come back, remember — you are your own home. You are better off without them.

Can you spot @yukainggia 🙋♂️ She probably can do it herself, you don't need to worry about her, and she's got this shit handled. But just because she can do it herself, just because realistically she probably doesn't need you, doesn't mean she doesn't want you. Just because she's got this, doesn't mean she doesn't want you watching her handle it. Just because she can walk the road alone, doesn't mean she wouldn't enjoy your company 🌸 🌸 Thanks for the beautiful photo : @yukianggia 💃 Use or tag #beingkashmiri To be featured on our page.
Gurez valley ⛳ If you haven't been there before, you should consider it as your next destination ⛰️ Tag your friends, start Planning , Discussing & 😁 ? . . The truth about ceasing to wait for someone is that eventually, someday, someone else has to show up to fill his or her place. And that person has to be you. You have to show up to your new life, your new world and your new way of doing things, no matter how painful and raw it all feels. You have face forward toward the future you hadn’t planned for and the life you didn’t know that you would lead. You have to stop showing up to the land of used-to-be’s and could-be-stills and show up to this world. The one where it hurts. The one that’s unfair. The world that is here, because it’s the only one you have left. 🙋♂️ Thanks for the beautiful photo : @xulkarnain @theotherrumii 🌸 Tag us or use Hastag #beingkashmiri to be featured on our page !
Listen — if someone truly wants you around then they will do what it takes to keep you there. You can’t force someone to care about you. You can’t force someone to stay loyal to you. You can’t force someone to love you. Don’t stay because you think there isn’t more love out there. Don’t stay because you think you can’t find better. Don’t lie to yourself so they can seem like a better person. Don’t walk in a hurricane just to be by their side when you know they wouldn’t do the same for you. You have to understand that some people that enter your life aren’t meant to stay forever. Even when you feel with your entire being that this is it for you, they might not be. But I promise - someday you will meet someone and it will make perfect sense why your past happened. You will never feel the slightest bit less about yourself, because they will value all that you are. You probably feel trapped or as if this is far out of reach for you, but trust me when I say, this person is out there. This person is waiting for you. You are the person of someone’s dreams. Someone is going to show you the purest love. You have imperfections that someone is going to cherish. You have a laugh that someone is going to smile just thinking about it. You have dreams and goals that someone will support. You have a kindness in you that someone will admire. There is someone out there that will admire every nook and cranny of your mind. This person exists in this world, so remember this when you’re lying in bed at night with someone who makes you feel as though you’re alone in this world. I pray you find the love that makes you fall in love with yourself and I pray that you let go of the person that makes you feel anything less than amazing. Words: @victoriamshultz Photo: @helloechi
Tag your Bestie 💕 Dear Best Friend, I think you deserve the world, yet somehow I don’t think you always see that. But I want you to know, I often find my own self wondering what I did to deserve you. You taught me what a soulmate really is, and I wouldn’t be able to survive without having you in my life. You come in to people’s lives with a purpose and you change them. You make every single person around you better, without even realizing it. Because you’ll hold them while they cry. You’ll make them laugh even when they’re sad and you’ll forgive them for what they said when they were mad. You believe in them even when they don’t believe in themselves. You’re there for them even when they haven’t always been there for you. And you care for them before you even care for yourself. You get to know them down to their very core, even when they’re hard to get to know. You go to war for the people that you love, and do it without even thinking. Love isn’t an option for you. It’s just who you are and it makes you the most beautiful soul I have ever known. Because your love isn’t fearful, or weak. It’s the most powerful force that I have ever felt—indestructible and unconditional. But you’re not only what everyone else around you needs. You’re all that you need. Because you are so much stronger than you have even begun to realize. You’re honest and caring. You’re hilarious and intelligent. You’re strong and compassionate. You’re beautiful, and you’re fucking powerful. You change people, but you don’t let people change you. And don’t ever let them. Never let any single person come in to your life and make you believe that you ever have to be more of anything because you’re already more than all of us combined. And I know you will never see yourself in the way that I have written here, but just know that I see it in you every single day. It’s why you deserve the world. Because you change it.

I am a free spirit. I don’t like being told what to do, where to go or who to be. My destiny is my choice, not yours. 🌾 ✨ Wishing you all a wonderful week ! 🌸🌸🌸 Thanks for this beautiful photo! 💃🏻 Photo credit : @yukianggia 💕 - Tag us or use our hashtag #beingkashmiri to be featured on our page!
How is Saturday treating you ? This is what you don’t do. ✨ Don’t let this world make you bitter. Don’t let the actions of other people turn you cold on the inside. Certain things happen that hurt us, people come that leave us, and most of all there are moments when you’re bound to fall. Don’t let those things make you unkind. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to be sad. But it’s never okay to do other people wrong just because you were done wrong. We’re human. We break. We make mistakes. But don’t let pain and sadness run your lives. Wake up in the morning and do what you think is right. There are moments in your life where you feel like giving up and you can’t take it anymore. It’s okay. Breathe. Inhale. Exhale. I know you’re weak. But the things that show your weak side are also the same ones that make you stronger in the long run. It’s all about taking whatever life throws at you and learning from it. 💗 Thanks for this beautiful photo! 🙋♂️ Photo credit @sayannath 💕 - Tag us or use our hashtag #beingkashmiri to be featured on our page!
