I like the word Success, it’s like music to my ear

But how can I be Successful is what I want to hear

DP Daily Prompt: Tagline

Often, our blogs have taglines. But if humans did, too? What would your tagline be?

My tagline would be, “I was born to be a teacher”.

When I was seven going on eight, I was able to know my siblings were not learning to read Urdu they were memorizing every page in the book. I also recognized the teacher my father hired was unable to teach.

I knew how to get the attention of the students I taught, I did well.

In my mind teaching with love is an Art most successful especially when one is teaching  children. Children look forward to teachers who have patience and love, kids are intuitive by nature they can tell which teacher can get their attention.





365 Writing Prompts: Your’e a mean one, Mr.Grinch

What is your least favorite quality in others? Extra points for sharing your least favorite personal quality in yourself.

I remember my teaching job in a boarding school, there were a few things I didn’t know about the system, I’ve already mentioned in my previous post I did complete the degree in education, unfortunately I did not learn that much from the  experience .It certainly helped me  get a job.

I had a colleague who knew everything about the system, she was one of the most experienced teachers, she was very nice to me, I was sure she’d help me if I needed it, but I had a very rude awakening, whenever I asked anything about the school system,she changed the subject,after a few times I learned she won’t help me.

I watched and figured out myself, months later, she took me aside and said, “I like to let you know, do not teach anything to the new teachers.”

I was not pleased to hear it, I already knew how she avoided telling me anything, I did not like her selfish behavior.

I dislike people who are selfish even if they are my relatives.

Human nature is peculiar, we are so different, one of my worst habit is I’m very sensitive, this makes me  do things  I’m not proud of .

I presume things without being sure, as a result I take action with my writing, sometimes it’s better not to put things in writing, it may come back to haunt you, I make up my mind not to repeat the mistake, so far I am not successful maybe some day I will!



365 Writing Prompts: Secret of success

What would it take for you to consider yourself a “successful blogger”? Is that something you strive for?

When I started blogging I did not think of success, it was something unknown to me, I wanted to see how I’d do, in other words will the other seasoned bloggers be interested to read my posts, there were a few. I was not disappointed, I felt even if I had one blogger who reads my post every day, I’d feel I am successful.

Fortunately there is one who reads it and finds whatever I write interesting, and always writes wonderful comments.

I do not strive to become a successful blogger, I wanted to become a successful teacher, I became one as far as the administrators and the children are concerned. I did not get any award for it, but I was happy to know the children ,their parents and the principals I worked with liked me. This is the kind of success I like.



365 Writing Prompt: Barter system

If the world worked on a barter system, how would you fare? Would you have services to barter? Would you be successful, or would you struggle?

I think I’d be all right if the world worked on a barter system. The service I can provide is teaching, I’d teach anyone who wants to learn and in return for my services I’d want the parties interested to provide food.

It will be successful I’d spend my time teaching and the interested parties who want to learn will bring me food.

I see success and not failure, as long as the parties understand each other.



Daily Post: Pride



I have to think way back.  I was getting ready for my degree exam. I was known by everyone including my mother,I was one of those students who would do anything but study for an exam. When I give that kind of impression to my dear and near ones,it is hard to energize myself to study. I wasn’t too confident of passing the exam myself either.I went about quietly trying to remember the things I had studied. I was good in History and knew it well.Unlucky for me the question  I was sure will be in the exam,was missing. I answered all the questions.The next was English literature.I found it okay.Economics, however was tricky,but I knew the answers. The one I was most worried about was Urdu literature.I did not have a good back ground,amazingly enough I was able to answer the questions.My Mom was sure I will fail the course. When she heard I passed,she could not stop crying. Now she can tell all the doubters I was successful.She held me in her arms and said,”I have no words to tell you how proud I am,God bless you.”
