Another difficult Monday

What do you do when that perfect creature you want to be, is killing you? The person who wakes up early in the morning, to get things ready for breakfast and lunch because she doesn’t want to be labeled a lazy DIL, who does nothing at home. This despite having gone late to bed last…

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…

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…

My operating principles

Am too principled, is what I feel. Come to think of it, I have missed out on a whole lot of fun in life because that. The quote – “Don’t take life too seriously, no one makes it out alive anyway!” is maybe meant for people like me. I realize that, but my brain and…

Monday Blues

The weather of Bengaluru perfectly reflects how my mood has been for the past two weeks. Gloomy, dull and gray. I have set the bar for myself really high. When I don’t meet it, I am so disappointed. I am my own enemy, truly. The last couple of weeks, I’ve been attending interviews. Having no…

Musings of a confused mind

I am in a weird phase. It’s been close to two months, since I am back in office. Unfortunately I haven’t found a project yet. I am not one of the people who enjoys being work-less. Work keeps my mind off unwanted things. People keep telling me that it’s a blessing in disguise and how…

Talking to the old self

I was reading the posts on my old blog and read the first post I had written 8 years back. 8 years, is quite a long time. When I started off, I never thought I’d last so long. The blog, my writing and I as a person have evolved so much over time. My posts…

Catch up post!

It’s been a year since I am on leave. The time to get back to work is close, I report next Monday. I feel so bad when I think of being 8+ hours away from my baby. It is so hard for moms. They have to choose between their career and being a mother. If…

On my mind

I wish it was possible to peek just a little into the future, you know, just to know that things will turn out fine, unlike how I worry. I have always been someone who worries a lot. Never known to have been calm and clear-headed. Things turn out absolutely fine, many times when I have…

X – ‘X’

Remember way back in school, how you had the task of finding ‘x’ in Mathematics? It took on so many roles. ‘X’ could be the simple number of apples to a value in an extremely complex equation. But the best part about the whole thing was, if you derived it logically, you could always find…

T – Time

Some days are a race against time. Today has been one such day. What started off with cooking and packing for office at 6.30 in the morning is yet to come to a close. The day at office was hectic with a long list of work lined up, back to back discussions and meetings, clarifications…
