This Week’s Picks: July 21, 2013

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Hi Friends,
This week is going to be amazing; a wedding, seeing legends speak, working hard… I am loving it.
It is not going to be an easy week but totally an adventure.

Life has been a school. Life is always a school, but lately it has been a strict school. Sometimes in life, you feel a blindfold falls off of your eyes. Sometimes it leads to disappointment, other times to desperation, other times to gratefulness.

Whatever comes our way, we must remember that our priority is to love people and be a reflection of God’s love and mercy to others. Be someone’s angel. Life is about being there; for family, for friends, for strangers.

Life–> Zindagi. It’s amazing.

1] Join me in the 24-hours with no complaints challenge.

My mother told me she read this amazing experiment a college professor did with his students (from a book called Life’s Greatest Lessons-or something like that).

His experiment:
Step 1: Do not complain for 24-hours
Step 2: Make a list with columns: material things you are grateful for, people you are grateful for, and intangible things for which you are grateful (i.e. Freedom).
Step 3: Read your lists to yourself at lunch, at dinner, before going to bed and before heading out to work or school.

People’s body language even changed!

I think this is pretty cool. I think I could use a good dose of positivity. Want to join the challenge?

Don’t complain, appreciate!

2] Something I am grateful for: Siddhath Malhotra’s face. Just kidding.
Adorable Student of the Year Moment.

Isaiah 26:3, 4

3 You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
4 Trust in the Lord forever,
For in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength.



Friendship: See who stays, who gives, who cares–

6] Obstacles


8] Aladdin… 😉

9] Time to moveeeeeeeee…
