All izzz Well!

Thanks so much for all the likes.

It feels so good to know that someone appreciates what you share here.👍

Sorry was caught up with things today hence couldn’t check your blogs which I assure to do by tomorrow.

OET of the day is CONTENTMENT

Today is a satisfied and contented day even though a bit tiring.😵

Everything went off as expected and I could squeeze in two more unexpected activities too!😊

Weekends I have to drive my son for his football coaching (yeah a soccer mom⚽️!) so the routine is well planned and executed for the last two and a half years.

With a league match tomorrow among  different teams of their club, a kind of excitement among kids and parents too. It will be a long trip to the match venue and will take up the whole day with the match in the afternoon.  Teamed up with another parent so it will be a nice picnic too😉 Tomorrow will share the experience!

Wishing a Happy Easter and Awesome Sunday to you all!

Celebration – OET of the Day

Today I am in celebratory mode, in India we are celebrating Our New year which is called Puthandu in Tamil, Vishu in Malayalam, Baisakhi in Punjabi, Ugadi in Kannada, Pohele Boishakh in Bengali. 🙂

The celebrations mark the beginning of our solar year and the first day of the regional calendars. This time it fell on a Friday which is considered as an auspicious day by the Hindus giving an optimistic outlook for the new year all around. This season is when we get lot of fresh fruits especially the king of the fruits ‘Mango’ and Jack fruit which are my favourites, one more reason for the celebration.😋🍋

One Emotional Thing – OET

I am an emotional and sensitive being. All my rational thinking will come a bit later after I have reacted emotionally first. Don’t remember whether I was like this from birth but as far as my memory goes (which is very short actually) 😉 I am like this only.

Some of my reactions will get appreciation as small things make me very happy; being the genuine on the spot rejoinder it will catch up quickly with people around me. Getting happy and excited for small pleasures in life enabled me to be smiling most of the times for which I am eternally grateful.

Sometimes it leads to guilty and regrets which I vow to avoid in future but mostly in vain.  😦

Over the years I have learnt to tame my retorts and keep it under some control. However, at times, it runs amok especially when I am among the loved ones. The reason I quote for this not very desirable behaviour is that since it is my original nature I don’t want to mask it when I am with my near and dear ones…… 😛

I saw the post in my word press reader about this blog where the blogger posts ‘One beautiful thing (OBT) ‘ either a picture or an art piece or a jewellery that caught her eye on that day  (check out Donna’s blog: https://myonebeautifulthing.com)

This kindled my imagination and inspired me to start posting and share with the world the ‘One Emotional Thing’ that makes me feel something on a day. Whether it made me happy or sad, angry or disgust, worry or depressed,  that one major thing of the day which dominated my mind I would like to write about.

It may be an experience, incidence I saw, anecdote I heard, a message I read or something happened somewhere, whichever it is, should have stirred an emotion in me. Writing down my thoughts makes my heart light and joyful. In addition posting my feelings may help me to manage them better too 😉

Sincerely believe and hope that daily I will post. Wish me Good luck !!!!!!   🙂

Feeling of the DayHAPPINESS

Beginning with the positive and queen of the emotions (I consider Happiness is feminine gender as happy females are the best of the world!) and love to share the joy and pleasure I felt today.

I love swimming and whenever I can go to the pool and wade for some time, I feel so happy. Be warned that I can neither do a lap across the pool continuously nor can hold breadth under water for more than 10 seconds, still the satisfaction I get from floating in water is unequivocal.

I had attended aqua aerobics training for a month recently and enjoyed the set of exercises very much. Today in the pool I practiced some of those exercises I have learnt, floated happily, kicked and splashed around, swam a little and feeling so good. I tried floating on my back and want to practice more on it. Hope to go regularly in the whole of summer 😀

Would love to hear the ‘One thing’ that made you all Happy  today.

Poles apart….BUT connected

“I CHOOSE YOU…EVERY DAY; NOT JUST THE GOOD ONES”

Marriage between two individuals is equated with the parallel rail tracks which stay apart but ensure smooth running of trains. Last few days I have been forced to think about this sacred institution (not so sacred anymore) and how it is viewed.

Its is more romantic to think that Marriage will happen between two people who have similar likings and once married would love to share everything with no secrets between them and they will be like two halves of a circle perfectly aligned. Of course, it’s not so always and in most successful marriages, it may be entirely opposite too.

So when I followed my train of thoughts and observed our own lives and others in our surroundings, mostly found the halves being on the opposite poles:

  • When one lives happily in the present moment and can’t think of beyond today ; other is long term oriented with perfect plan for retirement and beyond
  • One spouse is totally emotional and sensitive being, in contrast to the wholly practical approached counterpart with strong convictions doesn’t get shaken by any storm.
  • A partner will be principled on hard work and strict discipline as the ways to success while the other half believe on smartness and luck factors
  • One is an early riser and goes to bed early while the other loves to sit late and considers that early prey gets caught by its predator
  • Routine things bores the female to the extent that she keeps two toothbrushes to alternate between; whereas the male never tires in keep doing the same pattern of activities……. for eons.
  • In reading books and whiling away she gets her relaxation while rigorous fitness regime gives him the everlasting high.
  • Going to new places and exploring new things provide the absolute pleasure for the woman; The man loves being at home after his work as change in schedule makes him restless
  •  While the masculine gender can recollect every name and number from childhood but forgets the wedding day, the feminine form can’t even remember own phone number but vividly recollects all moments of their life together
  • Her commercial sense of the world is abysmal ; his idea on the home front is dreadful
  • Satvic food is preferred by one and spicy food by the other

The list can go on similar to every married couple’s arguments sometime 😉

But what matters is the understanding they have of each other and the willingness to accept and appreciate other person’s choices and preferences.

Not identical tastes, rather love, respect and trust are equally important to stay together and save the marriage.

I chose to accept, appreciate, trust, respect and love ……….what about you?

I’m Possible!

In the last three days I had three outings with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the whole time.

Two of them are with the same set of adults and their kids with whom I watched a movie and trekked a hill nearby our place. Both activities were planned with little time in advance and mostly through Whatsapp group discussion still achieved a greater participation with enthusiasm. As far as I am concerned, the whole experience was an absolute pleasure and filed under ‘my most memorable days’ folder.

if I think about the people (5 awesome ladies) with whom I shared these moments, we are not bestsies or thick friends who touch base always although we know each other for more than 5 years. A common friend connected all of us and we were happy to come together. We did some adjustments in our daily life to accommodate these outings, for the sake of kids and for ourselves. Took it in our stride when some of the things that happened were not as per our expectations or liking.  None of us complained too much or intruded in other’s privacy but ensured that all are included in the fun part without fail. Laughed out loud, encouraged each other to try new things, asked for each one’s review of the movie and exchanged ideas along with refreshments.

In all, it was a very cordial time spent together and each activity lasted four hours maximum on the day and it was not difficult to manage.

Therefore, when my friend called and said that because of this group it was possible and with some others it would not have been easy to pull through, I was astonished. She was saying that most if invited would like to know ‘who else are coming’ before even asking ‘where are we going or what are we doing’.  They have so much hesitation to even try or do some adjustments for a day to move with people from similar backgrounds. As I said it’s hardly four hours of interaction and in that also it was not necessary to be intimate with everyone all the time.  Even then it is unacceptable to some and they will be happy to throw away the fantastic experience of meeting people and having a wonderful time.

IMG_0718The insecurities, uncomfortable feelings, less confidence in self, ego clashes, fear of unknown, etc etc are quoted as reasons for this. But I wonder, where is the simplicity, humility, acceptance, joy of being together, sensitivity, considering others before self, goodness etc etc which will allow us to lower our guard sometime and enjoy life.

Surely I am not alone!

Here is the Why!

Why I want to write a blog? I have asked this question so many times to self and here is the answer….

I enjoy putting down my thoughts in words. Its like having a conversation with a patient listener who doesn’t interrupt or change the topic!

While writing I like the way my connected thoughts pouring out and my brain working overtime to get more related ideas from the far corners where I have stored them.

They may be coming from my experience or what I have read years before or seen in today’s newspaper. They may be related to the current scenario or something happened to others somewhere sometime.

Once typed down, it gives me immense pleasure and relief which I compare sometime with delivering the baby. I will be restless like a pregnant woman in the last trimester eagerly awaiting the due date, till then. Once delivered/finished the draft, I will be keep checking the whole body (text) to see whether all in good shape and perfect form. :’) before inviting the world to see my baby.

Also like all happy and proud mothers I always look forward to the compliments showered on my awesome baby…err..post 🙂  So, please like, comment and follow me!!
