Back in my days..

Are you different at the age of 18 or 30 or 60? Well that I leave up to you to introspect..

I believe one remains the same, age is but a state of mind.I don’t value the arbitrary day of the year to mark progress. Its just that the roles to be played in different ages are not unitary in standard. Every stage is unique in it’s own ways. Every stage has it’s own valuable lessons to be learnt. Back in my days, we played outside, not online. Parents called out our names, not on cellphones, we took sticks to be swords, pebbles to be diamonds. Recalling our yesterdays  Rs 10 felt like Rs 100, now Rs 100 feel like Rs 10.  When we are kids, we seldom think about future. I don’t miss childhood, I miss the ways i took pleasure in small things. Memories forms a large part of who i am today, and how i turned out to be the one.

I am still the ages I have been.. A CHILD, AN ADOLESCENT, AN ADULT and these are still a part of me and will always be. I am not trapped in any of these ages.YES, I AM STILL GROWING UP!!! 🙂

InToLife..

Past is rich in terms of memories. I can recollect my father telling me “everything you want is available, just out of your comfort zone, life ain’t bed of roses”. Well a wise man correctly said, “experience is a comb, which life gives you after you loose your hair”. It is now that I realise the meaning of what i was reminded every now and then.

Life is never tough or easy. Its our take, how we assume things to be like. Life exists only in the present moments, the past and future floats just in our imagination. The obstacles that lie in your path, may be imaginary, even if they are real you should not let it overtake you and blur your vision. They are the test of our true character, cause it brings the real person out of you.

Find something new (it could be a new hobby or interest), never cease learning (about self, other people, and the world at large), give your best and cradle yourself in the hands of destiny. Don’t just rush into something, you might be trying to force the issue. Sit back and accept the outcome. Nothing takes place before its designated time.

 

Life as a fauji spouse be like.. O’LIVE IT GREEN!!

“THERE ARE PLACES YET TO VISIT, PEOPLE STILL TO BEFRIEND AND HEARTS WAITING TO BE WON!!!”

There is no doubts ladies are pampered a lot in armed forces. Its always “ladies first”. But along this respect granted to us, wives also generally fulfill a major social role. Senior ladies are like mentors to young wives, also they create a comfortable home like atmosphere.
Being a fauji spouse, I have enjoyed a nomadic existence almost across the length and breadth of the country, courtesy all the extensive traveling my hubby has to do. Moving to a new place give us a new boost, each new posting teaches us something new. We really come from margins to mainstreams, broadening our horizons.  all of a sudden our oft-worn clothes becomes new in new place, without a second thought to it. Moving into a new place provides us the opprtuity of exploring a new place, meeting new people. An experience all the more enjoyable!!!
Packing & Unpacking is another tiring affair, to say the least. I remember my daughter was just a month old when our posting came. I literally turned into a super woman to pack stuff. From needle to crockery to clothes and fragile items. With an infant it was no less than a challenge for me. And when husband is attending some course its all the more like living in make shift arrangements. But thanks to the House Keeping Cell, things made far better and easy for us.  Even if I feel like cribbing I would just not as I don’t feel like disturbing him with all this cause I’m very well aware of the fact that he is a soldier first and then a family man only next.
It is all such things that gives life its much needed excitement and spice. I have left my heart at so many places!!!

Know your inner best..

Hello Everyone..

There are those times when you get mixed feelings, bouts of self doubts, butterflies in your stomach, blood bountifully rushing though your veins, happens with me quiet often (apparently, not surprising though)!!! Often we find yourself unable to remain present in a given situation.

The real essence lies in standing on your grounds with conviction and going by ur gut feeling. Speak up for your beliefs. Realising selfworth, the sooner the better.

CLOSE YOUR DAY LIKE YOU CLOSE A FILE AND ARCHIVE IT. SWEEP OUT THE NEGATIVITY AND EMBRACE AND ACCEPT THE PRESENT OF TODAY!!!
