Nurturing Thursday : Don’t doubt yourself

What would be better than shaing this piece of information today:

It’s Nobel Laureate C V Raman’s 131st birth anniversary today. He had unshakeable faith in his work and abilities. Though he was elected to the Royal Society, a great honour in those days, when he was just 36, he didn’t consider it a big deal at all! He knew he would win a Nobel Prize after discovering the Raman Effect in Feb 1928. After missing out in 1928 & 1929, he was so confident of winning in 1930 that he he purchased ocean liner tickets to attend the ceremony 5 months in advance, before they even told him he had won.

Nelson Mandela has said, ” There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living“.

  1. Your photos is so beautiful, Rupali! I love the bird ready to fly…love the golden water! 🙂
    It reminds me of Robert Frost saying…”Nature’s first green is gold…” 🙂
    The story is so inspiring!
    The quote is truth that we should hold onto and live out in our lives!
    Thank your for encouraging us and nurturing us!
    HUGS!!! 🙂


  2. When people settle for small things, often they don’t even know they are doing it because they get so used to playing small, it feels normal. To expand one’s perspective takes ongoing effort.
