IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!

Ok I am a Gemini and I am born on 21st June!  and for until about the age of 12, I thought my birthday was on the 22nd of June , making me a cancerian! And well I dont know how it all kept on happening, but my mother accepted it somehow and I kept on celebrating my B’day every year on the 22nd! Well actually for just a couple of years, when I was old enough to decide if to celebrate and who to invite….

So one day I saw my passport and found out that I was actually born a day before….so Hello 21st of June, Here I am!

I can actually go on and on for hours but who wants to read me all day! So since it’s my birthday, I figured I would compile a list of things that I’ve learned so far which might help my fellow readers or younger generation…and if nothing else happens and no one appreciates these things rite now, may be and just may be my kids, who by the way are 9 and soon turning 7 will read this one day and get an idea that life and people are not so bad after all….or may be they can can go through this blog like a scrapbook thing and think that ” WOW our mom could write!!! ”

Ok here is my list:

PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS CRITICIZE YOU

People always criticise…it’s like they are living for criticising you. I have either listened other people criticizing others or have seen in their eyes…The worst one is when they just give you this look and it gives you chills in your whole body. I am telling you no matter where in life you are, these people will find you! The best solution is…. say nothing, do nothing and ignore…You are not getting rid of them…but you have the ability to avoid them and ignore them! So do that!

DON’T PLAN BIG….PLAN SMALL

Always start with a small idea, become really good at it and then think bigger!! The best way to get success and a feeling of mastering something is thinking small and growing outward! Be really good at one thing at a time…don’t try to be everywhere…Remember there is just one of you!

BE NICE TO EVERYONE

Life my friend is really short…seems quite long but it’s not! So be nice to everyone you meet. What’s the point in being a bitch? Honestly, I believe that true happiness lies in being nice with everyone, no matter what…I try to do so every day and I know you do it too…Start with a smaller thing , like say hi to your busdriver every day…It’s my routine that no mater what… I have to say HI to my busdriver!

DON’T JUDGE WITHOUT KNOWING ANYONE

We ….the people of this earth are so talented in judging others….without even knowing them! I mean it is really a thing ? That’s just being nasty! You never know what struggles a person have had. People’s life may look flawless and glamorous, but everyone has a story. I have one! But this does not give me rite of judging people , I should look at myself and rather try to make myself better!

YOU CAN NOT CHANGE PEOPLE AND THEIR THINKING

With growing age, you get wiser and more tolerant and start looking at life with another perspective! I have realized now that no matter what I do and how I try to change myself for someone…the outcome will always be a failure! It’s so true  ( my experience). You can never change a person and you can just forget to change their thinking…it only happens in movies-, In real life…it could lead to a lot of drama! You can not control anyone, just take a deep breath and move on…

LIVE A HEALTHY LIFE

Stick to a healthy lifestyle! Eat well, sleep well, go for a walk, drink lots of water and most of all smile and try to relax! Your body should be treated like a temple!

DON’T RELY ON ANYONE

If you want to do something in your life, get up and do it! No one else is going to do it for you! Life is what you make of it! Remember you have to make an effort to achieve something. Things won’t fall from the sky for you to have them! You have to work for them, and the very first step is remembering that you have to do it yourself! Not anyone else…but ONLY YOU!

DON’T WORRY

Worry won’t make you happy! Don’ t stress. Life happens and worrying is pointless. Focus on good things in your life, your family, your friends….worry does not need your attention! I wish some one had told me this in my teens but now I am telling you…!

SMILE AND TAKE ONE STEP AT A TIME

I love when people look at me and smile…and I smile back of course! I also try to smile first, just to win the “smiling- competition” LOL.

Be thoughtful, be nice! No one is perfect and all of us are facing something in our lives which we are so afraid to tell others……you have to take care of yourself…and you have to remember that you get this life just once…It’s a blessing and a blessing should not be wasted on pointless things! Take one day at a time and smile and be thank ful for all the good things you have been blessed with!

And on this note….wish me a happy birthday!

I love you all!!!

Tips that will make your week easier….

This my friends…is a secret….wrapped as a gift….which I am going to reveal rite here and rite now…………..

Sorry just wanted to start with a bang…

 

IMG_9344
this by the way is my gift to myself…loved the wrapping and had to capture it!

 

I know it’s Tuesday and  still a few days till Sunday but I just wanted to share a few tips that made my week so far a bit easier, if I may say so….

Lately I have been feeling that I lack so much time and energy and so many things happening in weekend that I felt I had no control on my schedule, my life….so last Sunday I was home alone  and it made me see things from a pretty nice perspective. In fact I was watching ” HOMELAND” on Netflix and while doing so I organised my whole week! Can you believe this… ( Don’t you think Season 1 was best…I am on Season 3 and quite frankly it’s not the same as Season 1…..okay but that’s not what I am supposed to write about now)

 

Anyways so I was saying that as much as I want to be the type of person who coasts into Monday morning clearheaded , meal prepped and organized, with an early bird workout under my belt….the fact is I am not! Life is not prefect and I am not prefect…I want to believe that I am but then I will be lying to myself. ( PS. there was a time when everything was under control)

What comes in your mind when the alarm wakes you on Monday mornings?

 

For all those who are anything like me…keep on reading because this is not just my story…it’s very much yours too!

Monday morning alarm…

Me situation:  Groggy from my ” just one more episode” late night Netflix… bad habit.

 

I am annoyed, stressed, want to sleep more but no more… That’s why I sourced a few best things to do on Sunday to make my weekend easier…And by the way I did that while watching Netflix! ( Irony of my life)

 

CALENDERS:

Do you have one? Because I do! In fact I have three! And how many times do I check it? Ehhh once in a month may be!

I used to check every day …but not anymore… I have one at my work, one hanging on my fridge and one almost all the time in my purse! Tip number 1:  On Sunday look at you calender with INTENTION and I tell you, it will help big time  !!!

MEAL PREPP:

Do a little meal prep..or atleast make a list and see if you have everything in pantry, fridge or freezer for that matter..

It’s a hassle to plan every day sitting on train on my way to home..what shall we eat today??  I did this on Sunday and honestly I am so happy!

TIDY UP!

Tidy up! I thoroughly cleaned my house but you only need to get rid og all clutter in 15 minutes!

MONDAY PLANNING:

Honestly Mondays are worse, so just make a clear plan for Monday. If you get through Monday…your whole week will be saved! Write down everything!

DO SOMETHING GOOD:

Also make time for doing something good, like a date night!. Create some space for things you love doing…and I don’t mean Netflix!

Do a facial mask, watch a good movie, or just relax! Sundays are for relaxation!

AND FOR GODSSAKE GO TO BED EARLY on Sunday, don’t sit there scrolling up your Instagram forever…this  will allow you to wake up fully rested on Monday….I am telling you, its a huge thing!

I didn’t do anything which I didn’t know of! I just did what we all should try doing. Do this and let Mondays go smooth…rest of the week will be a piece of cake!

And on this note, Good night!
