my thoughts expressed in words

This year too…….

Its fun, its a ritual, its a reminder, its boring for some, some ridicule it, some sincerely adhere to it, some are serious for the first ten days and then give the justification for breaking it,


whatever it is…. new year resolutions have some good aura to it…


On 31st December…….

Its fun, its a ritual, its a reminder, its boring for some, some ridicule it, some sincerely adhere to it, some are serious for the first ten days and then give the justification for breaking it,



What ever it is…. new year resolutions have some good aura to it…


Leading newspapers talk about it in the last couple of days of the year… fitness resolutions, diet resolutions, money saving resolutions, and many come up.


I am no different !!!

I wanted to make some resolutions too….

And here they are…



Fitness is one thing that I want to concentrate on..

By God’s  grace,  and my husband giving his blessing, I started on my fitness regime last January  and it did work wonders….

Now, don’t ask me if I lost weight…. I didn’t (and I am still searching for the reason)….

But I did ‘feel’ fit physically and mentally…

The gratification, was achieved in the very first months of my training, and it still persits, till recently as late as last week when I could climb the two hundred and seventy two steps at Lehnyadhri mountains to take the blessing of Ganpati…

So, fitness training is in……


I want to try to be a little more assertive in certain issues.

My submissive nature may not help me. But I want to practice it.

This is not taken just to avenge someone, or at that point of time, when I am hurt,

But just to show myself that I need not feel bad at times.


A little more consistent, as I am labeled, ‘inconsistent’ many times.

Consistency in finishing the assignment I take up…

Be it reading a book

Writing a blog,

Finishing a crochet project,

Or anything that I lay my hands on…..


Learning to “Switch Off” issues that bother me.

Though difficult, I really need to practice it for my own good.

To move on, even after it hurts me deeply.

As I strongly believe in the phrase,




Expectations….The less we expect from life, the less we feel disappointed..

Its ages since I started implementing it in life, but it does pop up every now and then.

So, may be I should consciously execute it.


To be cheerful all the time… I am one, most of the time,

but my mind starts wandering during times of hurt..and I know it is because of my not being assertive at that moment that I need to be..


To self appreciate, periodically, so that I feel good about my contribution to the family, friends and society.


To read a book a month,

to learn a new recipe a week,

to donate on all the important occasions,

are some of the other few things that I would like to be resolute about…


Hope I am steadfast in my resolutions and review them by the end of the year on a positive note.


Wishing you a very happy new year my dear friends.

With a thousand butterflies fluttering in her stomach,

With hope and dreams filling her eyes,

With readiness to get glued to the new relations,

With a lot of admiration at her own level of adjustment for the new god given relationship,

With full faith that life would be beautiful,

With unflinching belief that she has got a lifetime friend in her spouse,

A girl enters the wedlock.

But does life give her all that she wants? Not to all I suppose. Some are blessed with these, while some are not.

Some realize they are blessed and some do not.

All that a girl needs is love, comfort, and little recognition that she is definitely the better half of her man.

The love, which shows care at times of grief.

The comfort when her heart aches,

The recognition when she does her bit in keeping the relationship going,

When she understands her man’s tough times.

She never expects any unrealistic appreciations, but does not want to miss the ones where she is due for it.

She needs a little pat on her back every now and then for carrying on even with her routine ! Who wouldn’t love to hear a word of appreciation just out of the blue ?

She does not want a poem penned on her,

but just wants him to listen to what she says without dismissing her opinions.

She does not expect her to be  the force behind his success, but neither does she like to be blamed for his failures.

She does not mind if she is not  given credit for the nice things that happened in his life after she came, but doesn’t want to be held responsible for the habits, and the upheavals either.

Life is uncertain.

She deserves all the love from her husband, children, near and dear ones.

Lets celebrate womanhood, and not miss to hug such a soul yearning for love !


Think, thank and Smile……

Think, thank, and smile…..


It’s a ritual I do everyday…not necessarily at the same time everyday, but definitely once or more than once  in a day..

Sometimes in the bathroom,

Sometimes in the kitchen,

Sometimes when I am sweating out in the treadmill,

Sometimes when I squat on the floor,

Sometimes when I ride my scooty,

Sometimes when I walk vigorously,

I think of those days when I was partially crippled

Crippled physically due to a surgery

I thank  the Almighty for having blessed me with a brain and a heart

to have thought about him and be assured,

I smile at my own faith,  an unflinching faith on HIM   and the grace bestowed on me…


Retrospectively, I feel my being positive has always helped me.


It is in my cells to be positive though my

blood may belong to a negative group !


I could handle stressful situations with minimum discomfort,

I could take others stress and still remain calm,

I could provide solace to them,

I could offer my shoulders any time for them to lean on,

In due course becoming the confidante of many of my friends.


Words of wisdom from a friend made me put my thoughts in writing

And proved writing is therapeutic !!!


I think, thank and smile. 🙂
