A letter to my Loved ones

Dear Badges,

I know you are angry with me and your anger is truly justified! For God knows what baseless reasons, i didn't give you all the space you deserved on my blog.

You don't know how miserable I felt whenever I opened my blog and didn't find you all flashing on my sidebar, reminding me of those amazing days when I earned you all.

I know I was mean, and I am sorry, truly, deeply!

I am sorry I didn't give you all the space you deserve...
I am sorry I thought you all will crowd up my blog...
I am sorry I removed you fearing jealousy...
I am sorry I ditched you all because you took time to load...
I am sorry that for a brief period of time I lived without you all...
I am sorry, oh, I am just plain sorry!

I thought piling you all up in a unique page was a good idea but i didn't know it was hurting you all when I did so.

I promise not to treat you all in this way ever again. I am going to have all placed back, flashing and hot on my sidebar.
Please forgive me.
Sincerely,
Bushra

Five things which Zest me up!

If you ask me even a million times if  I prefer joining a boring full time job with a great pay or would rather choose to work for my passion, the answer will always be straight - I will work only for my passion, regardless of the pay!

I think that's one of the reasons why I have never even considered having a full time paid job and instead ,have always found my solace in blogging and learning Fashion designing. Not that I don't intend to make something of my life, it's just that I want a work which I will put my heart and soul into!

I believe any work done without zest is worthless and joyless.

Zest is the essence of life....a feeling which makes you content.... a habit in which people should often indulge!

There are a lot of things which zest up my life. Below is the list of five things among them which instantly Zest me up!
#1
Winning:
You know not what it means until you have tasted it...
The piercing moments when you know that the results are going to be announced! Oh! My heart actually stops beating until I see my name in the winners list, and an exuberant zest fills my whole being when I learn I have won. The joy of winning something you have worked hard for cannot be put in words! Be it a contest, or a silly challenge I have with my Sister, I feel great joy winning it! Winning is something which totally zests me up!
#2

Shopping:
When they said money couldn't buy happiness, they were SO wrong! Just the word 'shopping' falls like music on my ears, lifting my mood and filling my heart with happiness. I think this is the best part of being born a woman, you develop this lovely bond with shopping for everything pretty, pink and perfect!
 #3
Dancing in The Rain: 

For some people 'Monsoons' may sound like torture, but for me, its a blessing- always! If you have been a regular reader of my blog, you might already know what a bond I share with Rain!

The scent of sand, when it makes love to the first drops of  Rain in welcome...
The sound of thunder which makes your heart skip beats...
The moist touch of water when droplets fall on your lips...
The muddy puddles inviting you to wet yourself in them like a five year old...
The soft kiss of sunlight on droplets, welcoming the Rainbow...
Everything about Rain is so unnerving and zestful!
#4

Blogging:

Sometimes it's nonsense, sometimes I strive to make sense, sometimes I pour my heart out, every time I write, it's my passion, a passion which makes me happy and fills me with zest!
When I started blogging, I never knew I would be sharing such a great bond with my blog like I do today. My blog is a piece of me, we are best friends. It gives me opportunity, it gives me space, it gives me a reason to stay happy!-
#5
Smiling:
Call me silly but you will find I am always smiling...sometimes for myself, sometimes for others, to make them smile. I love spreading smiles, it makes me happy. My heart fills with joy when a sad person smiles or laughs because of a joke I crack or funny advises I give them.

In these Nineteen years of my life, I have learnt that if something can really do magic and act as an imaginary wand to make people happy, it's a smile! If you don't believe magic exists, smile away, and you'll realize it can do magic on people! Be it a dry meeting, a skinny situation or an important deal, I manage to steal the situation away with the help of my smile! (:

What Zests YOU up? Is it a family get-together or simply a long drive? Let me know in the comments below! (:

Always keep that Zest alive,
~Bushra

Between right and wrong: Short fiction

There was a knock on the door. Merissa wondered who it could be at such a late hour. She reached to open the
door and stopped dead when she saw who it was.

"Se..Seyar....!" words failed her. God! He looks so much like him! She remarked in spite of her.

"Mum...I...I am sorry. I shouldn't have left you like that... I promise never to leave you ever again. Just.. please.. forgive me..." Seyar's words trailed off.

"Oh! Oh! My Son!" Cried Merissa hugging her son, whom she was meeting after ten years.

She had always known he would come back to her tomorrow. Tomorrow had come!

Life was back on track and Merissa felt she was in an early Heaven. After all, which mother would not feel so! But there was something which was disturbing Merissa. I must tell him before he finds it out himself! I think he already knows little bit of it....or he would have never left me...

"Mum! I am heading towards the mall. You need any help with your shopping?" Merissa came out of her reverie at her son's words.

"Oh darling, that's very sweet of you! The sugar bottle is empty, if you could just fetch me some..."

"Sure Mom.....but" Seyar hesitated "Isn't the Sugar store far away from the mall?"

"Oh yes son, you don't think you can manage? I really wanted to make your favorite dessert today!" Merissa persisted.

"No probs! See you soon Mum" and Seyar strode away leaving Merissa to drown in her own pool of disturbed thoughts. I hope he understands. Its time he knows.

Until Seyar reached the sugar grocery store he was already in a bad mood. What with a stupid old man who had kept addressing him saying " Seriff, hey! When did you get that haircut" and a big crowd of people in the mall who had stared at him as if he was some Harry Potter, Seyar was already having second thoughts about coming to his Mom's place.

The store, a fine looking high ceiling-ed opening full of sugar of every kind appeared to be empty.

"Hello! Anyone there? I wanted 5 Kgs of Sugar..." Seyar heard his voice echo slightly. Suddenly there was a movement behind him and he turned.

"Whatttttttheee!" Seyar gasped as he stumbled upon a man. When he retrieved from the ground, found his balance and turned towards the man into who he had stumbled - His world turned upside down!

No! This is impossible! Seyar wanted to laugh it out but the sinking feeling in his heart pierced him and all he could do was stare at this six foot long man, or rather say mirror who stood in front of him!

The man had his sleek nose, slightly dimples cheeks, the eyes, the...the..! Oh! He is so much similar to me! It's like we are twins...except he is a bit older... Seyar was too absorbed to speak.

"Welcome to your shop Son" Seriff, the older man said. "You have never known how much I have craved to see you just once.... but your Mom never allowed me... she said you would never accept me as you father" A tear rolled down Seriff's eye.

So it was true! Seyar felt an anger build inside him. Everything his friend had told him about his Mother and this 'man' was true! I should have never come back. He turned abruptly, and walked towards the exit of the store. He heard  a voice call his name No! Don't take my name! He wanted to kill his ears so that he would never hear that voice again.

....and he was running...unaware of the tears which were tickling every corner of his eyes. He ran as much as he could.... far away from him.

Exhausted, he sat beside a large rock. There was a small pool of water beside the rock. He bent down to wash his tear laden face only to see his own reflection in the water below.

A man was staring back at him from the water. How far can you run away from me? The reflection was mocking at him. I am yours...you are mine - accept it! 

"NO!" Seyar screamed, punching his own reflection in the water.
