Luck in Failure

If you are sad, show it. If you are mad, feel it. If you have something to say, say it. Never hide behind facades of false bravado. Life is indeed a boon even though it might not feel like that at all times. It is ok to be not contented with what has been handed to you. It is ok to be mad at the world. But laughing at someone else’s expense, really?

Finding pleasure in his/her failure is a sign of weakness. S/he’s the lucky one. S/he failed. It means S/he at least tried!

A Bird in hand

A Bird in hand is worth two in the bush. 🙂

Yesterday was a not one of the best days of my life. I have not been keeping well for more than a week now . It is my diet and exercise routine that is playing havoc on my “very much used to Sedentary life style” body.

Whatever the reason, it has brought my zest,  for a slimmer body and healthier lifestyle , down to the bare minimum. I rather have a non headache day than look my slimmest best. Maybe by the end of this week I might get used to the the new lifestyle. Or maybe not. Only time will tell!

Curiosity

She sat her son on a chair next to mine with a nod as if to say that he was my responsibility till she finishes placing her order. This happens often now. This place is where I relax before I return home to the mess my life has become.

There I was, happily minding my own business and enjoying my cup of coffee one day , when a neighbour walks into the coffee shop. Her son could not curb his curiosity. It was me who used a wet wipe to clean his fingers. He has been my best friend since then.

Aloofness

Aloofness

Aloofness

It doesn’t take much to make her happy. All she needs is a happy smile and a warm hug. But not all are accustomed to give her that sense of belonging. Yet, her expectations are high.

Her family never believed in public display of affection. That didn’t mean that there was no love amongst them. It just meant that there wasn’t a necessity to flaunt that love to all and sundry.

Endearing messages on Facebook amongst family members or friends makes her wonder. Is their life perfect? If she only knew their truth.

Aloofness is sometimes a blessing in disguise.

In a Dream

Festival of Words

I had a dream that I had finished up the Festival of Words and that I had visited and commented on all posts for the festival , during the short nap that I was blessed with a few minutes ago. My back aches and every part of me is swollen. I shifted homes yesterday! The plan was to shift after the 15th. Plans always have a way of changing!

I managed to prepare my first meal in this home today. The dream brought me back to my senses and here I am winding up my Day 7 post. Unpacking can wait!

P.S : I will visit and comment on all posts for this festival for sure. Just not sure when! 😦

Feeling Lonely

Festival of Words

Seema was busy unpacking her clothes and setting up her cupboard. She had decided to move in into shared accommodation with her colleague. Getting used to living among the crowd that gathers in her room in the hostel, had taken time. She was not a people person before her parents decided to send her to the boarding school.

She was back to being in a room by herself. Her new apartment mate was busy on her mobile. Seema missed her friends like crazy. She picked up her mobile and shared her feelings online. She was among her people once again.
