From the weekly column of the New York Star, 'Sex and the City', is an intriguing and quirky column written by Carrie Bradshaw.
The show aired in 1998 and six seasons followed till 2004. Everything about fashion and style was a lesson learnt here.
It taught us that beauty lies within. Be it the the perfect shoe or the perfect dress, they taught us the whole equation about the perfect guy too. Back in the 90's there was hardly any girl walking the streets of New York and not being influenced by Carrie's fur coat, Miranda's accessories, Samantha's heels or Charlotte's shades. This show practically transformed lives. Undoubtedly the most glamorous TV series ever, it is carefully entwined and blended in our real lives in many ways.
Apart from being the epitome of perfect lifestyle, it brilliantly supported many social issues too.
So let us go back and relive the life lessons learned from our favorite characters struggling, fumbling yet enjoying their every moment.
A problem comes your way, only because someone in the heaven above believes that you of all people have the strength to face it. And when you win defending all odds, you come out as a greater human being. All of your favorite 'Sex and the City' stars justify this fact.
You never settle for a wrong shoe or an ugly clothing. Then why do you settle for the wrong guy? You decide where your priorities lie. We are strong independent women. "After all, it's woman, who decide, if a man is desirable or undesirable."
Friends and family are the only people on the earth who never judge you. They accept you for you. There is hardly anything that you can hide from your girlfriends. We do fight over little things, but that is what brings us closer. We all agree, "Maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates and guys are just people to have fun with."
Change is induced in everybody's lives with time. So, there is perhaps no intelligence in being rigid. Be sober, be flexible and accept the change. You can fight all you want, but I am sorry love, you hardly have a choice. Miranda became somber with time, old habits die hard, but she is leads a happy life now and that is how you should be.
Grief is an important and healthy part of your life. Its's okay to be upset when breakups happen or when love turns it's back on you. Though they are tough now, they will surely sound stupid to you in a distant future. Because life has a funny was of screwing you time and again. "The universe may not always play fair, but at least it's got a hell of a sense of humor."
'Dream Big!' Dream not only of a boyfriend like Mr. Big, but aspire. Do not settle for something that comes your way. Discover, invent and settle only for the things you think you truly deserve. "Some people are settling down, some people are settling and some people refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies."
They have had many relationship failures, but the end like all other endings was 'perfect'. Yes, love demands patience, compromise and ignoring 'me and accepting 'we', but it is beyond doubt that the feeling is impeccable. It is divine. "Love is dangerous, if you know it's dangerous, that makes you treasure it, and you'll work harder to keep it."
Yes they watch you with that expression for a while. But lady, believe me the appreciation you are going to get after doing a thing like that, will be mesmerizing. Apart from the fact that it's fine being crazy at times, it sets you free. It enthuses in you, a zest for life. Believe me, there are people who will love the real you. You just have to let loose and you will see.
"Man may have discovered fire, but women discovered how to play with it." You all know it Ladies. It's time that we make them realize that we are indeed our biggest fans. You have to love and appreciate yourself for who you are and the rest of the world will definitely go ga-ga for you.
Sometimes when a dream is shattered, you loose hopes. But that's when you need to know that when one door closes, plenty others are wide-open. All you have to do is realize, "Life gives you lots of chances to screw up which means you have just as many chances to get it right."
