Surrounded by so many amazingly important people, yet there is only one kind of love that is irreplaceable, and that is the love of a mother.
Aint this relationship a pure blessing from God? Who would wash your clothes, cook yummy food, be your crying shoulder, fulfill your needs while putting herself second, bring comfort to you, and in return, would demand nothing but only love and respect? No matter what stage of life we are in, we tend to fall back on our mothers for guidance, love, and care. Whenever we are suffering, our mothers are the ones most concerned, ready to take any pain or challenges only to comfort us.
No matter how much we get annoyed by those 18 missed calls from “Ammi”, repeated pieces of advice, thousands of questions and random small conversations, the truth is we cannot imagine our life without all of this. These reminders are a source of happiness and survival for many of us without even realising it sometimes.
Every year, we are stuck with the same question, i.e. “what to get for mother’s day?”. The same question has become more complicated this year with the current situation of the world. But we have got you sorted with some super cool ideas to surprise your mother while staying at home in this pandemic. The tip is, no effort is useless if done with pure love.
In the month of Ramadan, we have been witnessing our mothers working hard in the kitchen while fasting. So, it’s time for some treat. Nothing can beat the joy of taking rest for one whole day and be treated like a queen. We ladies love these small gestures. Take full responsibility on mother’s day and let your mother enjoy some scrumptious food made by you.

5 motivational thoughts to get you motivated by Canadian-Pakistani CEO, Muneeb Mushtaq
Canadian Pakistani CEO and motivational speaker Muneeb Mushtaq has given us many insightful and empowering thoughts over the years on the basis of his experiences as a young and dynamic businessman. The tech tycoon has been the founder of three tech business ventures and has managed to achieve so much at such a young age. And, he has given back his learning and knowledge by motivating, educating, and mentoring people to be successful in life.
Here are some motivational thoughts by the Forbes awarded entrepreneur Muneeb Mushtaq to get you motivated and beat the Monday blues:
- Get rid of the useless and negative clutter in your life
Muneeb Mushtaq suggests that it is important to subtract some of the unnecessary things from life to realise how insignificant they are. He advises us to get away from the insignificant and negative clutter in order to see an immediate positive impact. Worrying about what others think of us, trying to please everyone are some of the unimportant things we need to remove as soon as possible. According to him “When you remove what’s negative, it’ll add more space for what’s POSITIVE”!
- Don’t wait, just take the first step
The successful entrepreneur recommends us not to wait for other people or for the perfect moment to do what you have always wanted to do. There will never be a perfect time, situation or circumstances that would make you start working on your dreams. He advises us to just take the first step and get started.
- Failure is the opportunity to start over again, more wisely
The dynamic businessman is also of the view that failure provides an invaluable experience that makes it more likely to get success the next time around. He explains: “Till the time you don’t give up, the failures are just learning experiences, helping you to eventually succeed.”
- Respect the competition
Muneeb Mushtaq also shares this motivational thought that competition should be embraced and should be used as a driving force to push you further rather than fearing it. Competition is also a validation that there is a massive market and opportunity in the space to grow further.
- Change is important
Another motivating thought from Muneeb Mushtaq is that if you want change in life, then you should also be willing to change. He says, “If you are not willing to change, don’t expect your life to either”.
