The Choices I Made! A Post Dedicated to the Year 2015!

As I look back on the Year 2015, I think of all the things that altered the course of my journey, or in other words, the things that led me to the path I am walking on today. These things are the choices that I made! And I would like to list a few of them down for you:

  1. I chose to end the toxic friendships which were nothing but a stress to my mind. Because who wants friends who only make you feel “less than”. The year was about ending some friendships and not feeling sorry at all.
  2. I chose to be more independent than I was back in college, as early as possible, by accepting the very first job offered to me. I did not think twice about the pros and cons because all I wanted at that time was to get into the corporate life as soon as possible and be more independent. I am glad I do not regret my decision.
  3. Being an introvert by nature, the third choice that I made was the toughest one. I chose not to hold myself back from sharing my feelings, my thoughts with those who matter to me, those who care about me, those who understand me. And somehow, it feels good.

Some of the Many Little Things that I Love – Part One!

I wanted to write this post so that I never forget what I love to do and it would also help me in finding more about myself, to reflect and become aware of who I am as a person by way of knowing what little things I love to do.

Here are some of the little things that I take delight in: 

  • I love when the sunlight enters my room through the windows. The excitement of opening the curtain and letting the daylight in, instead of switching on the lights is what I look forward to, the moment I wake up.
My Room!

My Room!

  • I simply love people-watching. I think I am a curious person and very observant, hence, this is one activity which I can do all day and not get tired.

  • Another thing which is very dear to me is giving customized presents to my friends and family like gifting customized t-shirts ‘The Best Dad’, hand-made birthday cards, friendship band with a message on it. I don’t mind spending time while choosing the gifts for my loved ones.
  • I love arranging the books on my shelf in a colorful order. Pink cover book adjacent to the orange one adjacent to the black one and so on.
  • I enjoy the weather in October and February, when it is neither too cold nor too hot.
  • Visiting the historic places makes me happy. These places fascinate me. When I am there, I wonder what it would have been like to be born in that era. I let my imagination go wild and I simply rejoice in it.

These are the only things that I can remember as of now. As and when I come up with some more, I’ll post it in the next blog post.

What are some of the little things that you enjoy doing? I would love to know what makes you happy. Keep reading and commenting!

“AND WHEN WE MET…” – A Short Story

Leyton-leyton-40586_1024_768

Just when he is sitting in a library thinking how boring his life has become, a girl with big hazel eyes and long hair walks in the library. He looks at her and then looks at her again. She was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen in his life and he felt the love-at-first-sight feeling for the first time. She sits next to him and he somehow finds the courage to start the conversation.

“Um, Hi. I am Adam.” He says with a broad smile on his face.

“Okay.” She replies.

“Hmm. So she is playing hard to get.” He thinks.

“So, what’s your name?” he tries again.

“Not interested.” She replies curtly.

“Oh. It must be a very boring name then.” Saying so, he turns away.

“Excuse me. Who do you think you are?”

“Who do you think I am?”

Piece of Writing!

1512391_453923064743535_7501536038068264174_n

What a piece of writing! Wish I could write something as good as this; writing which means something to someone, which makes one feel something strongly, which makes one think and question about life.

Be Kind and Smile!

In this fast and ever-changing world, people have got no time to think about anyone but themselves. And I am not blaming them or judging them here. I myself am a part of that. Such is the rush and desire to be ahead of everyone else that comes the dawn, and people start to get ready for the day ahead, planning each and every task carefully so that they don’t lag behind. And I am no other. Every single day at 9 in the morning, I hurry to reach office on time, completely ignoring the elderly guards who sit near the hostel gate. Probably one of the guards realized that this girl was never going to greet them in the morning, that one day he himself wished me good morning, which made me feel embarrassed and guilty somehow, as they were elder to me and I was the one supposed to show respect towards them. It definitely made me ponder on the kind of life most of us live; a life where making somebody else happy, or showing respect to a stranger, is not on our priority list.

When My Scooter Broke Down- Daily Prompt- Kindness

Image

It was deadly hot in the month of June. I knew I was running short of gas but I was pretty sure I would make it to the gas station with whatever amount of gas was left in my scooter. But, booh, somewhere mid-way, my scooter gave up! It couldn’t make it to the gas station.  And there I was, standing all alone in the scorching heat, trying to figure out what to do.

Then I decided I would “walk-along my scooter” and take it to the gas station. I was walking and walking and “pushing” my bike in the hot weather when suddenly a car stopped by.

Take A Chance!

This photo always boosts me up to take chances and risks in life because as it says- It’s always better than wondering what could have been!
