Message by the gorgeous and brave lady, Daljeet Kaurr:

“Believe in god and love yourself! Life is one; stand with the support of your own backbone and keep your spine straight. It is absolutely ok to cry and release it out from your system. Follow any one mantra in life (like I chant Gurbani) to come back in action after depression.

Lastly, always remember when you throw something, it takes pressure to throw up, but while coming down you get it three times larger as the efforts taken to fall down is lesser than rising up. Believe in your efforts and throw good things to the Universe so that when it comes down, it comes in larger quantity to you.”
