In my (not so humble) point of view

Right now.

A good place to be

Sometimes we push through envelopes of life that make us uncomfortable, that push us, challenges us and even make us feel small. But feeling small is good for us. 

It makes us question who we are. 

And if need be, reflect and refine.

Responsibilities 

It’s our responsibility to ask the questions.

// I always felt I didn’t need to know about the investments, about the money, about the fine lines, about my own health and more. I put this ownice on Vivek. I’m learning now. Everything to do with me and Aru, is my responsibility. And I need to know, I need to be informed.

Never needing permission

What life would you be living, if you didn’t need someone else’s approval. 
For what you studied. 

For how much money you made. 

For how many nights you went out. 

For which bags you bought. 

For the food you ate. 

For the tidiness you kept. 

For what you did during the day. 
If you took a pen a paper and thought. 
IF NO-ONE ELSE MATTERED

WHAT WOULD I WANT TO DO WITH MY LIFE. 
Would I want to travel and live overseas for a couple of years? 

Would I have a bottle of coke every now and then? 

Would I buy a $1000 dress instead of 5 $200 ones? 

Would I change my career to something which offered less OR more money? 

Would I buy an apartment instead of a house? 

Would I wear huge earrings and bright pink shoes? 
WHO WOULD I BE IF YOUR THOUGHTS WEREN’T IN MY HEAD? 
For every daughter. 

For every wife. 
Let us stop living for their approval and based on their permission. 

Let us believe in our own concepts of life and lifestyle and find the mid-way ground or the no-tolerance ground if it is what you truly believe in.

Choice

The greatest thing we all have
Is how we choose to think. 
What we tell ourselves everyday. 

The little thoughts running around in our mind. 
We can tell them.
F-this-sad-as-shit today is going to be awesome because xyz.

And every day. 
Every shitty day, when we wake up, wanting to go back to bed, 
We can change that feeling. 
By choosing how we think. 
Rather than thinking… 
That what is. 
Is. 
Because it isn’t. 
It can be whatever the fuck you want it to be.

The Trained Introvert

I used to be quiet. I used to cry every day that I had to attend kindergarten, probably for months. My dad sent the driver with a big ruler in the boot to ensure I wasn’t to come back home in the car, but to get out of the car instead. 

I didn’t like parties or functions. 
Then at some point, it dawned on me. 

That perhaps, to be popular. 

You needed to smile and laugh and socialise. 

Perhaps to be loved among your peers and respected, 

You needed to turn on the charm and dial out the right details. 

Perhaps. 
And so I did. 

I got the popularity. 

I got the 500+ on Facebook. 

I got the “friends”. 
///
But I stopped being who I innately was. 

I lost all that for this falsehood. 
And truth is. 

I don’t really want the 500. I just want the 5. 

And the truth is. 

I don’t want to pretend anymore. 
I’d rather be me. 

Private. Quiet. 
But happy to be in the sun

With the right person. 
Instead of the 100 wrong ones.

How To Doubt

When you doubt someone you love.Do the love the courtesy of clarifying the doubt. 
Go forth. 

Ask. 
Put your doubt on the table and dress your courage with love. 

Instead of fear.

How To Dream

If you are to dream, Don’t do it cautiously. 

Or hesitantly. 

Or steadily even. 
Dream irrationally. 

Ridiculously. 

Wildly. 

And with abandon. 
Because that my friend, 

Is how one ought to dream.

The Case of The Red Toilet Paper

Somewhere deep down. 
I’m a snob. 
Not a money snob. 

Maybe a taste snob. 

A swag snob. 
And I had my snobbery sliced and diced by a woman whom I deeply admire. 
And it was so good for me. 
It began with her respect for red toilet, where I smirked, she smiled with child-like enthusiasm. 
And sometimes, that’s all you need to ground you a little. 

Shake off the dust a little. 

And love what you already have. 

A little.

On Discussing Others

We spend so much time discussing the actions. Discussing the different causes of the actions. 

The preferred behaviour of people. 

Why ours were just. 

And theirs weren’t. 
So. Much. Time. 
If only. 
We let it all go. 
And asked ourselves, 

Why am I feeling this way? 

What do I need to change? 

And what do I need to accept?
