One day when you look in the mirror and suddenly notice a grey hair
Don’t panic or fret, it’s just a hair. Dye it, own it or flaunt it. It’s not going to make difference.
Irrespective of the color, won’t you be, ok? I think you will be.
One day when you glance through social media and realize all your friends have scaled new heights.
Don’t feel disheartened. Look back and appreciate what you have achieved
Look ahead and plan for better. Irrespective of your position
Won’t you be, ok? I think you will be.
One day, when you have nothing to do and feel lonely.
You scroll through your contacts and call an old friend.
But all you get is just a hi and bye.
Don’t be disappointed. Probably it’s time to make new friends. In the end, it’s just one life.
Welcome people who wish to stay by your side.
But if they don’t wish to. Won’t you be, ok? I think you will be.
One day, when you casually try on clothes and are not able to fit in the clothes you like,
Don’t stress out and go on fad diets. Adapt a healthy lifestyle and take one step at a time.
Your worth is not in the way you look but in the way you react.
If the number on the scale is a little high, won’t you be, ok? I think you will be.
One day, when you observe the comments on your Facebook posts have drastically reduced and the likes on your Instagram stories are negligible.
Don’t you worry or cut a sorry face? Remember it’s not the quantity but the quality of your audience that matters.
Next time when your phone stops buzzing with continuous notifications
Won’t you be, ok? I think you will be
One day, when your signature dish tastes bland, don’t question your culinary skills.
Take a break, whip up something easy and relax.
Unwind your thoughts and begin again from the scratch.
If your kitchen turns messy once in a while, won’t you be, ok? I know you will be.
One day, if you want to take a break and unwind, do it anyway.
You might miss out on some income or forgo a professional opportunity
But that’s ok, as long as you are happy.
If you let yourself go once in a while, won’t you be, ok? I know you will be.
One day, when someone notices you but forgets to call you beautiful.
Don’t be dismayed and sad. Remember beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.
Your true beauty is reflected in your personality and a genuine heart.
If you don’t receive that validation from others, won’t you be, ok? I know you will be.
One day, when you want to say “No!”, say it boldly.
It’s ok not to always say “Yes”. Not all good things are wrapped around a “Yes”
If someone is annoyed by your “No”, won’t you be, ok?
I know you will be!
