Being let down by ourselves!

Naina's mom had no idea why her daughter was in a grumpy mood. Then..

Some people might fight this funny or would conclude that Naina is a drama queen.

I've been in the same situation as Naina, at many times and I totally relate to her reaction.

Being Ms. Always Right!

So one fine day,

Strip created using Strip Generator

Few facts which people ought to know:

Just because people don't argue with you, doesn't mean you're always right.

Just because people don't react/respond to what you say, doesn't mean you're always right.

Just because people don't argue with you, doesn't mean they're cowards. You have no idea how much they're controlling their temper/irritation.

So stop assuming things, if you have the guts to handle an honest opinion.

Everyone has an opinion. We might not agree with it, but we should respect their thoughts. That is why it is always good to rightfully disagree instead of justifying it and attempting to impose it on others. 

Agree to disagree.

(Hello :-) Just trying out my hand at these comic strips. Do let me know how it is. Suggestions are welcome!)

The Journey So Far.

I wanted to write this post two weeks back. But who am I to decide the fate of this post. It probably was meant to be written only now. The year is still new and people still keep writing the year as 2013 by mistake, so I here you go.

I don’t mean to sound clichéd, but as far as I can recollect I think the events and memories of 2013 would remain etched in my mind for a long time. Be it brewing my own cup of coffee for a few months or waking up purely with the help of an alarm, an activity which I wouldn’t have even attempted earlier. Since mom was away trying to welcome a new member in the family, I single-handedly tried and managed to run a household. Since I was home alone for a considerable time, that was then time when a few definitions were redefined.

I learnt that shopping also includes buying milk, veggies and stocking the fridge with not just ready-to-eat food items, but with the raw materials as well. I learnt that cooking was not just about preparing Carrot Halwa or baking a cake when I wished to, but an activity that would require me to prepare rice, Chappthi, Subji and other normal, routine food. I learnt it is easy to prepare the perfect cup of coffee/tea once in a while, and that preparing it the perfect way on a daily basis was quite a task. I learnt that cleaning did not mean dusting things once a quarter, but something that has to be done daily or at least on a weekly basis and not when I had to mood to clean up.

New Year Resolutions, Yet Again.

So, have you made a list of unrealistic solutions yet again only to throw them in the trash by the end of the first week? 

Or wait, have you made fun of all those who have the guts to take up a challenge and come up with the 'No resolutions for this year is my resolution' phrase yet again?

I recently read about how most, not all, resolutions fail to materialize because they tend to be way too unrealistic. By setting too high a standard for ourselves we give up even before we start. Some people might argue that New Year resolutions are no big deal. Of course. There is nothing special or great about a new year. If people believe that they have to start something, they can start anytime. Anytime is good, for a good start. Since people associate the beginning of a calendar year to a good start, they are tempted to take up a resolution. Now, that's not bad.

Keep your resolutions simple

Resolutions are over-rated and exaggerated. Sometimes people unnecessarily complicate even the simplest of things. Always remember the K.I.S.S policy. Keep It Simple, Silly. Resolutions are mostly associated with life goals and reforms. It need not be that way for all. The main idea is to instill a sense of discipline and judge how well one can survive with a few strict measures. Since we are the best judge of ourselves, we would know what excuses are genuine and what are not. We know what we are capable of and what we are not capable of.
