      An interesting stream of consciousness.

      If she is crying, try to make her smile. And if she is smiling, try to make her laugh. And if she is laughing, try to make her laugh hard. And if she is laughing hard, hold her. And if you are holding her, try to kiss her gently. And if she is kissing you back, try to make it last long enough for a memory. Now that memories are under production, heartbeats will sync too. And once that music plays on, a cosmic dance shall follow. And if that is possible, there is no stopping you two. You will keep going until you are both naked and breathless in each other’s necks. Congratulations.

        This paragraph is a Diamond. Quite possibly one of the most beautiful paragraphs I have read in the history of my own time here on ReadUp.

      8 wonderful minutes of reading!

      If you’ve got a job, be thankful. As of now, the unemployment rate in India is dangerously close to 8%. That said, the ideal way to deal with a job is to treat it respectfully. Taking it for granted won’t serve you well nor the work you’ve undertaken. Give it your 100%; take responsibility for your position, show zeal and keep learning new stuff. Most of us know how to work but very few of us figure out what works for us. An occupation is an excuse to know ourselves better and yet, we often end up feeling lost in our so-called career. Think about it. You’ve got 24 hours in a day and seven days in a week. Even if you sleep 8 hours a day, you are bound to dedicate more than half of your waking hours to your work. That’s a lot of time singularly dedicated to one goal. On top of it, if you’re feeling your work isn’t fulfilling you, then you are in for a harsh surprise: your job doesn’t deserve you and vice versa. It’s far better to focus on being in love with somebody/something than being in hate with your job/task.

      Fingers crossed…a lot of signs pointing to a new job here! So exciting! Will carry this paragraph within once stepping into new one.
