Back to the grind

Two reasons I stopped the prompt challenge that I had taken up on my blog. The first being, I felt I would be repeating myself in the subsequent posts that I was supposed to write. Secondly, I got a twenty day break between my job change and it was completely eaten up taking care of…

I regret…

…having arguments with Dad. …always being on the edge of my percentages. I’ve a 69, 79, 89 (I won’t tell, which one was attained when 😛 ). If I’d only tried a little harder, I could’ve been on the other side. …not getting Dad a smartphone, which was one of his wishes. …some stupid involvement…

Motivates me

When I find notes like these, which I’ve written to myself. These show I got through whatever was bothering me at that moment – Come on! It’s okay! It’s just the first day. You need a lead to proceed on. It will come with time. Things get clearer as you work on them. You can’t…

Drains me

I find confusing situations extremely draining. To add to my woes, I keep facing such situations repeatedly. I would have deliberated over a situation and come to a decision. That process isn’t very easy for me because I tend to think too much. I go over all possible scenarios and think about the pros and…

I’ve achieved

How do we measure our achievements? Marks in school, percentage in college, the college we get into, the job offer attained, the package earned, the hike received, the promotion attained, the awards earned? These are the “general” measures of an achievement. Does having achieved all of this, make me better than the rest? Does being…

I worry…

…about everything under the sun! Not a very good thing I know. When on bench, I worry about not having a project. I get a job; I worry about how I will perform. I worry about the travel it will take, the extra time that I will spend on travel, missing out being with my…

I’ve improved

In my patience levels. Becoming a mother does that to you. All the sleepless nights, the holding and rocking, putting down the child, to be woken up again in another 5 min, helps you improve. 🙂 Initially, I used to get worked up so easily about things I felt I could not deal with. However,…

3 limiting beliefs

The beliefs that I write about below, have limited me over many years. Though I know that I shouldn’t let such thoughts control me, some incidents which work in favor of these beliefs make me think in that direction. All superstitions. Being too positive will result in a negative outcome. Last week, after completing two…

3 favorite affirmations

I Can Do It! This is something, I keep telling myself, when I start doubting the progress of things. I am not a quitter. Well, I do not think there is anything wrong in being a quitter either. Sometimes it is good to quit one thing, for something better. However, we are conditioned to try…

My inner critic

How I wish I could silence her! She is the cause for all my misery. She’s always up and about and never for once does she consider going to sleep. She wakes up, the moment the alarm goes off. While I choose snooze it for ten minutes, she chooses to get to work immediately –…

I’m obsessed

I had written about my obsession long back – here. That is still probably my biggest obsession. But having a kid, makes a lot of difference. You have other pressing needs that your mind isn’t so obsessed about the kitchen platform. Add to it, now with a kid, the whole house is messy! So fretting…

This list keeps getting updated from time to time actually. But a few of these are constants, I think. I want less of – Pollution Traffic Advertisements Online sales Differences Expectations Judgement I want more of – Love Companionship Time Colors Greenery Clean Air Long drives Understanding Hugs n Kisses Smiles Chatter
