Am I ready?

My life may be a mess but atleast I look pretty in the dress!

This got to be the defining mantra of my life. In case I plan to continue with my sanity,that is. 

Since a few days I have been a mixed bag of emotions. One day I am alarmingly happy. And then gloomy. So gloomy that my friends are scared to even approach me !

And why wouldn’t they be . After all my emotions have reached such heights of confusion that I literally hit my friend with my keys. Straight onto his face. Without a reason.

Thank God he was high ! 😉

These mood swings have been a perennial problem. Although till now they have fortunately been non violent only 😂 . My room is the biggest evidence of this turbulence. Clothes , washed and dirty alike lying on every possible furniture.Bits of paper and tissues  decorating the floor. And then there is me…somehow adjusting for space in the bed between my books and pillows!

So why has my life come down to this?

There could be several excuses.

I am a Cancerian woman,so being cranky is something even my stars have chosen for me! Then there are the female hormones. These i-dont-know-how-they-look substances have the audacity to keep me irritated. And the fact that I can’t do anything about them,only adds to my irritation! Also doctors tell me I have some kind of allergic bronchial asthma ,so the recent weather changes also ensure that I wake up early ,very early morning coughing and gasping for breath and when it finally comes , i cant go back to sleep , because ,hello you have a bank loan to repay,so please attend your classes. let’s also not ignore the fact that I also sleep late ,very late in night, thanks to assignments submissions and hell yeah! Classes.

To be frank ,it would be really bad of me if I did not give myself the pleasure of being irritated and snapping at every body.

Now that I have made a mention of doctors, if I do look from their perspective these are all mere symptoms. Like a fever is just a symptom. The real trouble is something else.

And I believe that something else is CHANGE. Within six months,my life has literally taken a 180 degree turn. Things I had never dreamt of,forget about planning have happened. And have happened so quick that there hasn’t been enough time to even absorb their effects.

For someone who shirked at the very idea of travelling and moving out of the comfort of my house, I have been thrown more than a 1000km away and been home  only once in 6 months for 4 days!

The confidence and wisdom I thought I had gained after the 10+2+4 years of education has all been thrown out of the window. Yeah ,once upon a time in a very distant land I had plans and goals of being the best in whatever I do but ,well ,here I am struggling and fighting to just keep pace with my classmates and professors.

More than the fast paced Bombing of Knowledge at me is the speed at which people have walked in and out of my life.

Strangers from different parts of , not only the country ,  but even the world have become a part of my life. People who have seen so much more of the world than me, from different walks of life, each with their own story now surround me. And among them I have found a few special ones, The ones who I would want to be included in my lists of Forevers 😍.The ones who are family  :).  The ones who have bought entertainment to my life with the best and worst jokes of all times!  The ones who have taught me the true meaning of creative comebacks 😂😂😂 and the ones who very generously give me “gyaan” about this life 😋

My inner goddess has awaken and is looking around. Happily dancing away as it can finally satisfy it’s fantasies with a new crush everyday 😉

Or maybe HE is the same all days 😍😂

And then there are people who have shut their doors on me. The ones I had hoped would not. The ones I had grown not only fond of ,but used to. Their presence no more surprised me,but their absence shakes me up. Sigh. But as they “One fine day”! Hopefully our paths will cross each others’ again. 🙂

So all in all I am amused and perplexed at this new roller coaster ride, one which I hadn’t even asked for or infact even paid for 😑Every moment here is teaching me something. Things I want to learn and things I definitely don’t want to learn.

It’s just that all of it is happening too fast too soon. Maybe I am not ready for such experiences. Not all at once. And not now.

But when has life waited for someone?

And seriously, What is life without some spice?.😉
P.S When they say,do what you love. They are actually right. Writing all of this down has soothed me down. Peppy side up again 😁😊

The STORM

Stop . 
Right there.
And breathe. Obviously you have been doing that for at least a few decades so it must be easy. 
So don’t just breathe. Feel your breath. Feel the fresh oxygen going into your body , doing its job and providing you energy to carry on. Feel the body throw out the carbon dioxide. Feel its warmth. 
Kudos. 
There! You spent one second of your life in the most relaxed way possible. 
And if you continue to do this for even a minute, you will know that “relax” is an understatement. This simple exercise is the most easiest way to rejuvenate yourself instantly.

The next question that comes up is “What exactly is your point Miss ?”

This exactly.
The involuntary need of speed we have almost imbibed in our system. To be always, always in a hurry. Whether its you ,whether its me , we all want things right here, right now!!! And there are no reasons to it. Its just a fact, a herd mentality where none of us wants to be left behind. 

Talking of herd mentality, although it is something looked down by us Human beings, it is just one of the ways we resemble the entire working system of nature and other beings. 
We know the basics- need for food, attention and sunlight.:P 

I want to draw your attention to the similarity of the storms of nature and humans. 
Storms of nature , as defined by humans, refer to violent disturbances of atmosphere, that bring about destruction, more often than not. 

There are innumerable instances in our life ,when we have these exact disturbances spiralling within us with such high intensities that even we tend to destroy all that comes into our path , metaphorically and sometimes literally as well 😛 .
And what is the end of it all? Only wastage. Wasted energy , wasted time and wasted peace of mind. 

Well , the nature does what it has to do. 
But we are humans- the same beings who haughtily pat ourselves on our backs, for we have the best evolved brains and make the most optimum use of them. 
Then WHY do we do this ???

If we have been able to utilise the energy of the wind and the sun and the tides, why do we not utilise our own energy ?

Take a moment to digest the levels of efficiency and overwhelming positivism at the very least , that could result if we harnessed our energies in the right direction.
If instead of throwing and breaking things , we instead decide to better organise them?
If instead of shouting and screaming, we dance it all out or do an impromptu karaoke?
If instead of blaming every body and every thing, we assume it was our fault and work to improve that? 
Or the simplest of all , just take a moment right then and there to feel our life. Slow calm breathing with a look-back on our own story. On how have we actually contributed to our story ? On if we actually were the Hero of our own life?

These are not Herculean tasks after all, although for sure they do look much easier in writing.  

But is it not better to try it out for our own sake and see the results? What if we do have the potential to be able to do this ? What if these storms are just a sign of the impending and freshening Rains of our story ??

As Louisa May Alcott puts it

I am not afraid of the storms for I am learning how to sail my ship . 

 

P.S Writing in response to the prompt of the day STORM

 

 

 

 

 

 

A little tip :)

I have  been really busy these days.
Not been able to keep up with my own challenge.
And like all failures teach you something,this did too.
Dream big for sure,but  remember to be realistic and practical. And oh always ,always have a plan B!”.

Well that’s my learning, not every one will agree to this thought.
You need not to,too.

What is more important for you All to agree and realise is that ,we must learn from everything.
Failure,success or term it anything,we must keep on learning and keep on growing.

Feeling dejected will never help.

Understanding the problem,improving on it, learning definitely will 😃

Shortage of time , forces me to conclude here itself. And since a picture says a thousand words ,here I am sharing a quote I came across which should be the life mantra of one and all.

Cheers to a happy life 😍😇

Loving it ??

DAY 11 :

Love is in the air everywhere I look around
Love is in the air every sight and every sound

 

And i mean this literally. Word by word.

With exams over and a few hours of relief before other presentations, i was lying in my room ,randomly surfing the world wide web. Its a web actaully! takes you ages and low battery or no Wifi to come out of it! 😛

Anyways, there i was using Facebook , Instagram , Pinterest  all simultaneously. It was when this thought struck me.
The world is stuck.
Yes , We may be delivering Beers to our friends via drones ! 😛 , but still every other quote or post you come across  today is about one thing only. LOVE.

Take a really pretty picture of either a couple or a landscape, throw in some heavy words , add the Moon and waves to it and there you have a new creation . About how love is a blessing. Or about how love is depressing! 

The entire world around has focussed its attention to just one facet of the magic called LOVE.  There is a guy, a girl , they love , they go apart and so on so forth. 
And this makes me laugh! Sometimes i do get really irritated too , but being the girl I am, i just laugh about it 😛

Is this ALL it is?
By all means NO!  I feel we all must stand up and tell the younger generation this is not all loving is about.  Love is not so black and white. And definitely , Love is not restricted.
Then what is, you may ask? 

Well , I believe love is when you return home after a long time and your pet can’t wait to be all over you. 

Love is when you not  only let your sibling irritate you ,but you also do their work after it ❤

Love is when your mother listens to you complain about the whole world and then makes you cookies to cheer you up . 

Love is when your father tries to act all c-o-o-l and funny in family gatherings 😛 

Love is when you make your teacher proud.

Love is when you listen your friend cry . Love is when you tease your friends and make them cry  !
Love is to get lost in that book , all curled up  and cosy . 

Love is the freedom to live your life your way . 😀 

Love is when you watch all episodes of a series at a stretch and get lost in that fantasy world. 

Love is dancing with your friends. Love is being possessive about your friends  😛

Love is sudden plans and tasty food. 
 Love is cheering for your home team , from 1000 miles away , through a television screen! 😀 

Yes the feeling of growing close to that special someone, getting lost in their thoughts and talks, wanting to spend every moment of your life with them is nothing less than a magical blessing. It is indeed love. ❤ .

Love is caring. Love is caring ( Cheesy enough?  😛 )

So go on , live a loving life. Laugh a lot, cry less , be happy . Fall in love, fall out of love <3.
Because there are no limits to LOVE  😀

P.S As far as I am concerned , Love is knowing that two ladies are upset from me as i won’t be able to meet them , before I head off to another city next week . Ayushi , Mini ❤ 😀 

No more no NO!!

Peppy Notes !!

The study of nano particles , their physics and their interactions with biological membranes is not difficult.

The calculations of Budgets and Taxable income are not difficult.

Standing on one leg for a day is not difficult.

And then you may ask , if this is easy, then what is difficult??

The most difficult thing is the ART OF SAYING NO. you could call it science too , but I like it this way 😛

The values and morals engraved in us have taught us everything , but, to say no.

Not for all though. There are some great fellows who have mastered this art very well. so well that they blatantly refuse to do things , without even a little respect for others, absorbed in their own little world. This is even in matters , when both a no and yes would not affect them.

let me talk to…

Such is life.

                                                                     FEELING BLUE 

Every body tells us to always plan our life ahead. Take all actions thinking about the long-term benefits of the plans.
And these same people also tell us that the only constant thing in the world is change.
Strange!

Anyways, coming back to plan and planning, all of you must be knowinng the feeling when things actually turn out the way you plan. Whether it is related to your career choice , your investment plan  or even your decision to not carry an umbrella.
That feeling of elation when things go perfect smooth. All our parents , families and friends advises seem to blend in the perfect way of our life.

Only more often than not, this rarely happens. how so much we plan and prepare and act accordingly , life beats us to it. We stand there at important turnarounds , bewildered and confused about our next “plans”. Feeling sad and dejected, we keep on trying as we don’t have any other option.

sometimes life is not only hard, but wicked and cruel. It will fool you. with a smirk on your face, life will support you. Things and events will happen in your favour, the way you had it all chalked out. And then , when you are almost there…BAM! Life has the last laugh. Trust me , this is the worst that can happen to you. Or no wait, it gets even worse, when you fail again, not only  trying all you can , but also while trying to find a reason behind this.
These last-minute twists of life , are so hard to survive. Not only are you unable to even  find a point from where you can restart , you don’t even have time.

So well such is life.!

Well, Challenge Accepted. 😉 :D.

Random sentences , yet connected. Go on have a deep thought 🙂

April 1 is celebrated as Fools day. The neighbour’s door bell had rung twice. As I tossed and turned in bed, the clock struck 3. There were 4 people in the family. 5 years of marriage is not long , but  five years of compromise ..definitely .Snoopy had given birth to 6 puppies just yesterday. 7 days and a week is over, yet again. The 8th month would mean the third trimester and soon it would all end. Kids grow up so fast , baby Kia would turn 9 this year.
The Marriage was held in the summer of April 2010.
