..makes you stronger. This song was playing on the radio while I was driving today morning. This line “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” was stuck in my mind. While it was inspiring to listen to the song, I kept thinking if it was really true. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Or does it suck the soul out of you, leaving behind an empty shell, which would only imitate the qualities of a stronger mind, but in fact is torn inside out. What if that which doesn’t kill only teaches you to hide your scars better, but […]
Why boys should cry..
Haven’t we all heard that boys won’t cry! I have a boy and I never stopped him whenever he was in tears. I offer consoling words. I hug him. But never told him that he should not cry, because boys won’t cry. Here are few of my reasons why I say it is okay to let your tears out. Boys are not super humans. Failures and sorrows touch boys too. Humans are a mix of all emotions, sadness and tears are part of it; boys are only humans. Suffocating tears aren’t going to make anyone strong. Holding back tears will […]
Success first then happiness?
Really? Think again. Can you be happy only if you are successful? That’s going to be a painful life at least for me if I can be happy only if I am successful! I mean, can anyone ever be happy like that? So you got a raise at work or bagged a promotion and you are happy, but how long is that happiness going to last? Few days, I suppose. Then come new goals, and happiness have to wait till those goals are realised. Now if you are already happy and scored good marks in a test, the result will make you […]
I have signed up for NaBloPoMo for this month. Blogging daily is a great exercise for those writing muscles, no doubt there. I have signed up for NaBloPoMo in October and November and blogged daily until I fell ill. I am not happy with the way I am handling my blogs these days. Knowing me, I fear that I might gradually go back to being inconsistent in writing and then stop it altogether. So when I read Laurel’s post on reasons to join for NaBloPoMo- February, I couldn’t resist from joining. 🙂 Thank you Laurel for coming up with the reasons and […]
International Blog Delurking Week 2015
Now, I am quite late to post this post. The International Blog Delurking Week started off at the 4th of January and it ends tomorrow. First full week of the New Year is declared as International Blog Delurking Week. How do I know this? I happened to be lurking on Mel’s blog – Stirrup Queens. Click the link to know more about Delurking Week. The idea is to come out of the lurking corner and say “Hi”, just to let the blogger know that you were reading the posts. You don’t have to leave an elaborate comment (but you […]
I am Thankful..
December was hectic with the sickness going on and off in our family. The wet, cold weather wasn’t helping us in the slightest. By the end of the term, that was one and a half weeks ago, Kanna was so tired. Every morning he was asking,”Is it Saturday today?” When I say no, he was disappointed with sadness filling his eyes. My kid is never like that. He likes to go to school. But this term was tiring. Was it the short days or the cold bug that never wanted to leave us or just the cold weather, I am not sure. […]
Here we are at the last steps of 2014. As the calendar reveals 2015, does the new dawn really brings in new joys as we wish to each other? Isn’t it going to be the same day like today and yesterday? Same people, same routine, same work? Then what changes? What makes it so wonderful when the clock strikes 12 on a New Year’s Eve? I was thinking along these lines. Don’t you wonder the same? Is it because New Year is welcomed by all of us together? Is it because the New Year is something which we are looking […]
The week that went by..
Hope you all had a good week, better than mine at least, because I had a very bad week. I wasn’t well for the most part, still not completely well but getting better. My husband was travelling for couple of days during the week which added to the discomforts though he took care of everything he could. On Thursday morning we had major trouble getting bus to my son’s school, finally we had to take a taxi to the school after waiting for almost 45 minutes in the cold weather outside, the result of which clogged my sinuses and got […]
Too tired to write
I never thought that I would get too tired to write. I was aware of losing interest in writing. I knew that I could run out ideas and I might give up some day. But not this, tiredness. The real reason is I am sharing sick bed with my kid now. So all that he was going through is now showered upon me. Added disadvantage is that my kid is not better yet. No wonder I am tired, right? So my friends, you might see less of me here, probably for a week but I will try to blog every day. […]
I consider myself as a kind person, at least not the rude one. I haven’t made kindness as my motto or anything, but it is there. I try to help people whenever I can and whenever I was asked to. When I was doing my 12th grade I got a chance to show how kind I am three times. I remember those instances very specially because they were all strangers and old people. And that was the time our family was in so much in trouble, I remember considering those instances as universe conspiring in sending us extra blessings to […]
