Life is awesome and it’s so easy for us to forget that.

Since last two days, my phone is behaving dumbly. Because of the arrival of 'Data Giri' in the market, suddenly phone network in my locality has gone absolutely poor. So being home I can't call anyone and obviously no one reaches me, at least through the phone. The same problem my husband is also facing. He works from home and phone communication is really important for him. We are getting irritated as we are not able to talk anyone since last few days. The day before yesterday, I was thinking what a loss it is that I can't call anyone, I am not able to check my parents and I felt I should buy one more SIM now.
Today morning when I was having my breakfast and checking different news websites, I came across an utterly thinkable topic. Are women really feel less about themselves all the time, no matter how much they have in their lives? I can't say this applies to all the women of this world. But yes, I have a tendency of thinking about any bad thing more than cherishing good things in my life. Like I was madly thinking about the network issue in my cell phone as if this is the only important thing I have in my life. Yes, yes, yes, I think as I stare at the kitchen that it’s so unmanaged. I find my house strangely and poorly organized and I always want to buy more furniture. In each area of my life, I always want more.
We actually live in an age of more. Nothing ever seems enough. Simple things are never enough. When we reach one milestone, we set the next goal. We never seem to be happy with ENOUGH. We need to buy more, do more, have more. But the truth is I have enough. I have a beautiful family, no water, and electricity problems at home, all required electronic appliances there and enough money to survive. I have a roof over my head, a bed to sleep in and the luxury of sufficient good. I am also blessed to have supportive friends and neighbors. My husband and I have jobs that allow me to get everything for my family. I get to do what I love doing at home. And I am so grateful for having enough. Sometimes I just need this reminder. Some days I would probably feel that it’s not that amazing because I get caught up in the clouds of more, more stuff, more things and more money. But IT IS amazing. Life is awesome and it’s so easy for us to forget that.
I am not saying we should ignore our problems. Of course, I want my cell phone issue fixed. But I want to change my approach towards problems. If I am not able to call anyone being home, it has its own advantages. I am feeling more love and concerns for my family because I am somehow disconnected like those days when we had less or no phones. And I have ENOUGH resources to connect to them in alternate ways.  you see We all have ENOUGH in our lives, but we occasionally need this reminder too. I have just given this much-needed reminder to myself!

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert. From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns.

Worshiping Krishna.. वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम्..

Shri Krishna Ashtakam is a worshiping prayer devoted to Lord  Krishna praising his powers and glory. Ashtakam means a prayer which contains eight hymns(slokas). Each hymn or verse is composed of four phrases, each describing one quality or great acts of Sri Krishna. And, each sloka is composed in two lines. It is believed that krishnashtakam lyrics possess great powers. Here is the English translation of this holy verse : वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम् । दॆवकी परमानन्दं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥1॥ Vasudeva Sutam Devam Kansa Chanura Mardanam... Devaki Paramanandam Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum.. I pay my tribute to the teacher of this world Krishna, who is the son of Vasudev, who killed Kansa and Chanura and who is the source of great joy to Devaki. अतसी पुष्प सङ्काशं हार नूपुर शॊभितम् ।रत्न कङ्कण कॆयूरं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥ |2| Atasi Pushpa Sankasham Hara Nupura Shobhitam..Ratna Kankana Keyuram Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum... I salute to the teacher of this world Krishna,

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who.. I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold. ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life! I am not the wife wh
