being BUSY!! :)

Main happy vappy kyu kyu kyu,,, main busy vusy hoon hoon hoon!!

People generally  feel bad about being busy but as I am a bit ulta in all terms, m glad that I have been quite busy since the last few days.. and thankfully the right amount of busy-ness!!As they say empty mind is a devil's workshop. But my mind was all filled with frustration and angst of sitting idle and snoring in the noon, just doing household chores and watching tele-soaps. But since quite some time, I have started using my mind and time in some productive ways. First it was Mom’s fiftieth birthday party preparations, now its navratras, ongoing interiors of our new residence, family wedding coming up and of course not to mention my hyperactive daughter who keeps me on my toes all the time!! See frankly speaking, sitting at home and doing nothing apart from household chores and taking care of little M has made me a bit lazy. ;). Honestly, I am not the “superwoman” kinds who can manage a 12 hours job and home both effectively. I wish to work only for my self-satisfaction and self-esteem that I am not just sitting at home and wasting my time. Plus I don’t want to ignore my child also as I feel what is most important, as a parent, especially in the formative years of the child, is to be able to spend some quality time with your kid, to let them know that you are there for them no matter what, to be their best friend till the new ones arrive, and to just enjoy these beautiful priceless moments for as long as they last!! J

And regarding the interiors of my new home,, I am pretty excited about it!!Its like one of the toughest job because here I have to follow my gut completely. Everyone has their own choices and preferences and I got to decide the best,, but, with everyone’s consent!! You won’t believe, my room was the last one to be finalized as I gave the ones which I liked to everyone and as usual me and husband weren’t agreeing on anything. But thankfully we did, and hopefully it should look good. (fingers crossed).   So, with dad’s architectural experience and my ideas ,I am trying to give my best attempt, lets see what is the outcome now. As they say … “thoda sa tera sa hoga, thoda mera sa hoga, apna ye aashiyaaan!!! “

Even for my husband, I don’t want him to be soooo busy in his work that he doesn’t have time for his family. What is the point of earning money when you don’t have your loved ones around you to celebrate or spend it? Of course that doesn’t stop you from working hard and securing your future, but I feel why waste today in worrying about tomorrow. Kya pata, Kal Ho Na Ho!! ( goshhhh,, filmy  ME!!) LOL..  

So,, as I am “the right amount” of “being busy”, I am enjoying this phase.  As long as I can take care of little M, play with her and say stories –workout - cook for everyone and eat – work from home – shop, spend and splurge, , I am lovin it!!

First things first,, a very happy new year!! I know i would probably be the last one to wish,,but its OK ,happens!! ;-)

So,,,what is/are your new year resolution?? I don't have any new year resolution,you see, you don't need that crap when you are perfect!! Jokes apart,  i have off lately stopped taking resolutions coz i was not able to live upto any of them.. mainly coz of two reasons 1. laziness 2. helplessness. See,the things which you should be doing and dont do coz of careless attitude or chalta hai types its laziness and the things which you want to do and cannot do due to certain unavoidable reasons,things on which you dont have any control,,thats helplessness..Not Getting up early in the morning,not  going for a walk or work out, not having a healthy diet, no control over your sweet tooth, no time to call up your loved ones, aaj - nai - kal - se- pakka for any work are all perfect examples of your laziness .. whereas there are so many things which you want to do like being independent, not just siting at home all the time and doing household chores, have some time for yourself, sit back and relax, go out to the place of your choice etc but,,, you cant do because of your small kid or other reasons (which don't need an explanation ;-) ) are all examples of your helplessness. ( P.S. writing the blog so late was entirely a form of laziness)

 People say you are responsible for your own life and it all depends on you, how you handle situations. But I wish things were so simple, I mean If I was totally in charge of my life, I would be the President of India, or a superstar , or a big fat politician minting loads of money!! I feel God is there to decide things for us and it depends on us  how we take them - positively or negatively.I agree When things dont go our way, we do feel bad or helpless, but there is a time for everything and we just have to be patient. Like if I talk about myself, I desperately want to restart my work but as of now i feel my daughter needs me more and when the right time will come, things would start shaping up and i just have to grab the right opportunity!! (hope it comes soon :-) )

So instead of making any resolutions and not following them yet again,  This upcoming year I plan to speak up more, listen and pay attention wisely. Embrace my haters, make friends with my enemies, and don't let any nonsense or drama take over me. I have learned that you can't avoid drama and some people will dislike you for no reason and if I let that bother me ,they'll always win. Be more patient, Cry n Crib less ,to rise above little things (like putting  on weight and hence eat chocolates everyday) and will think in terms of the day's resolutions, not the years'. !!

And now with my arms open,, I welcome the new year, full of things that have never been!! I at least resolve to try n be happy always as the most important thing is to enjoy your life - its all that matters!!
