Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

I have never felt that so clearly in a moment than this past week. And beyond. That peace I felt was bridled with grand amour, excitement and pure gratefulness that Neil and I made it.

Neil Mody. The man that I have promised to share my life with. My match in everyway.

Neil was my very first and truest love. We met when we were 18 years old and studying at NYU. We couldn’t have been more different on paper, but found ourselves hooked for the ride of our lives and connected evermore.

Life happens.
Life isn’t fair.
We make mistakes.

It’s up to us to fight for the people and things we love and truly want in our lives. Now when I say fight, I mean fight.  Like you never have. All in. Fight fiercely and passionately, and then when you think you have nothing left and you want to throw in the towel, fight one more round.

I have always been a deep romantic but, for most of my life, plagued myself with ceaseless questions about love that left me branded in personal madness. I battled. I was a brat. I needed, craved certain, definitive answers. I longed for the secrets from those who had endured. How did you do it? How do you know?

It’s actually really simple.

When you’re lying on your deathbed and are about to take your last breath, what will you be thinking about? Not the nonsense that life threw at you or that you spent so much energy on. The only thing you will be thinking about and that matters is who is there. In that moment, when it’s just you and the other side waiting, who is with you? Who do you want holding your hand?

Everyone’s journey is different and hopefully not too arduous, but if it is, it will push you to dig deeper than you could ever imagine. But you will endeavor to persevere. And I can tell you that the light on the other side is brighter, bolder, and more brilliant than you could ever have allowed yourself to dream. And it’s so worth it.

The stars do align.
A moment can change everything.
And you just know.

And then you get to just marvel in it all. And be happy.

Ever After.

  • Stormy S. says:

    That was really beautiful. I’m sure it was tough for you to open up about something so personal, being such a seemingly private person. Thank you for sharing. I wish you and he all the best. Congratulations again!

  • Angela Iorio says:

    Beautiful. Couldn't be happier for you and Neil (nice to finally put a name upon the person you shared those incredibly romantic pictures with!) As always, thanks so much for sharing such personal thoughts and stories with us and for welcoming us into your life like this S. You continue to amaze and inspire even through your blogs (which is why that Shorty Award for blogger is yours in me books!) and my admiration continues to grow for you with each passing post, action, film etc. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness, blessings and LOVE..

    “There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” ~John Lennon <3.

    I agree with you! I think you need to love the world around us, then we will feel happy, but to love the world, to love truly human only giving love, and this is all the love back to you, then you will be happy!

    Congrajulations Sheetal,
    🙂 Feeling very very happy to see you with your Mr.Right.And feeling more happier to see that you have shared your wonderful moments and thoughts with us( your friends n fans).God bless you. So here’s wishing you n neil…..Loads n Loads of Success,Happiness, Love…In Your Journey Together….Ever After….

  • Anja says:

    I wish you joy. More anything.

    Thank you for being brave and opening up to us. I think we all know how very private you are and it goes to show how very much he means to you that you’re willing to share this with us.

    If anybody else would tell me “ever after” I might say: “yeah, right”. But I believe you. I don’t think you would get into this without conviction. You don’t strike me as someone who ever puts her heart into something or someone without conviction.

    I can’t imagine anybody wishing you anything but happiness and I think we’ve all proven to be supportive of anything you do. My hope is that you will keep sharing little tidbits as we will keep respecting your privacy in turn.

    In truth, I envy you and hope to find my “ever after” one day. Until then I will continue to be happy as I am and strive to live the best life that is available to me, fight for my friends, family and my dreams. And never be cynical when it comes to matters of the heart.

    I wish you joy. Always.

    Несмотря на не самый удачный перевод текста, было приятно читать такие романтические речи от цельного и жизнерадостного человека как Вы. Мне очень импонирует Ваш подход к жизни, создается впечатление о вас как об аптимисте с большой буквы, такие люди редко встречаются в жизни и мне как обывателю очень приятно со стороны наблюдать как хорошо хорошему человеку. Хочется надеятся на лучшее для вас, то что вы делаете для людей, не только ваше творчество как актрисы, но и общественная работа не могла вам не воздасться, так устроен мир!

  • Yi双 says:

  • Tracy White says:

    Wow, it’s so cool to have someone like that in your life. It’s what we all strive for. I am so happy for you. Seeing you with your prince gives me hope that I’ll find my princess, some day. That’s why I love Amim’s films so much is because she portrays that kind of special love that I long for. It’s real, it’s true, and it’s lasting. Thank you for sharing that part of your life because it impacts all of us. You are a beautiful soul and deserve all the happiness and love you have found. Take care Sheetal! Your new friend, Tracy

    Hay u r an amazing person, its hard to pull through hard times. U look so happy in ur pictures. I’d luv to go to africa and egypt one day(if i could ever afford it).
    I hav relatives in south africa too.
    I’v had a few hard times, starting with losing my mum when i was 18. She had just had her 40th birthday. And people treating me like crap. And i went through a time when i had no money.
    But somehow i have still stayed possative through all of it.
