Purpose in life

What’s my purpose in life? I never thought about it until I lost my dad and felt like there’s no reason for me to live anymore. But something told me there’s a reason that I’m still alive, there’s a purpose, that lead me contemplating what my purpose is. Now I know what my purpose is, it is to make a difference in this world. May be I can’t be half as great as Mother Theresa or Dalai Lama or Abdul Kalam but I’ll contribute in my own way. My purpose is to build someone up, spread happiness, smile more and to be kind. I asked the same question to Hari and my bestfriend. My best friend’s purpose is similar to mine (duh!) and this is what Hari said.. Read More …

Do you have pets at home?

I din’t set up my tree or make any goodies for Christmas, so I couldn’t share anything with my friends/neighbors this year. But when my neighbor friend dropped by last week and gave us loads of yummy goodies despite her son being not well, I felt so touched. As soon as she left, Hari and I worried about their son and we knew we gotta make something to cheer them up. I made some Indian sweets and savories and Hari and I literally hopped to their place yesterday. The son who wasn’t well attended the door and asked us to get in. I kind of hesitated but we had to go talk to him and his parents about how he was doing. Read More …

Farewell to 2016

I know I’m doing it a lil late but I still don’t know if I can complete/publish this post. Here’s me saying goodbye to 2016. 2016 is that evil monstrous teacher who won’t be getting any flowers/cards from me. I’m so so glad that it’s gone. Except I feel a lil guilty now that I din’t say one nice thing about 2016 at all. Because there’s not even one nice thing! Read More …

Best Compliment Ever!

Who doesn’t like to hear compliments? I can see my husband raising his hands and legs, but that’s just him! :/ I love compliments, both giving and receiving. There’s something so nice about it, it instantly makes the giver and the receiver happy. As much as I like receiving compliments, I act all gawky sometimes and here’s a post about how I act clumsy. But, tell me, what’s the best compliment you have received? I would love to hear, aw c’mon don’t be shy, I would love to hear all about it. I’m gonna shamelessly share some of my favorite compliments. But before that, when was the last time you gave someone a compliment? I usually shy away from giving someone the compliment that they deserve to know. But not anymore, I’m very vocal these days and I love spreading happiness wherever I go. So go ahead and give compliments to people you meet in restaurants, train, work place, spa etc. Read More …

Our Fourth Anniversary!!

Tomorrow is our fourth wedding anniversary!Say what? Sigh, how time flies! FOUR wonderful years with you and words can’t describe how grateful I am to have you in my life. I hardly write or mention about you in my blog because you know I’m shy like that. 😛 But let me tell you, you are THE BEST and people who know you might hold it against  me and say he is THE BESTEST okay. *rolls eyes* Since this year we are low-key and not in a celebration mood, I thought I would at least write a post about you. For the love of making lists here are few things that I love and hate about you but will still stick together because you’re the ONE for me. Read More …

Of dreams and smiles

I get bizzare dreams all the time but this year it’s been mostly about my dad. Initially it was tough, it’s like he’s talking to me in dreams only to wake up to harsh reality that he is no more. I have cried so many days, every morning was a heart-breaking one after a dream. but suddenly I wasn’t getting any dreams and I started to miss those dreams. Now I get them once in a while and I’ll wake up all happy and cherish those dreams. Those dreams are like the precious moments where I feel I can still hangout with my dad. Read More …

Everything’s gonna be OK!

I woke up happy today, happy for no reason followed by goofy greetings from the husband which made me giggle so much. I turned on ‘Latika’s theme song from Slumdog Millionaire‘ and checked the comments on my recent blog post  which always makes me happy. I quickly brushed and came down to pack lunch for H, made a bigass sandwich for him and sent him off to work. Usually, I come back grab some coffee and browse or reply to comments/messages. So today when I went to grab my coffee mug I saw this random string lying in my kitchen window. Read More …

Daddy’s lil girl

I was around 5 years old, had just got out of bed and went looking for my mom/dad and found my dad sitting and shaving(which he used to do every morning). I went and sat beside him.. Him- Good morning, darling. Me- Hmmm.. *tapping my lap against the floor* Him- Do you wanna pee? Me- Why? Him- You’re tapping your lap, I think you should go pee. He was right and I went peed and came back running as if I’ll miss the climax of the movie. Me- ouch you’re bleeding near your chin appa. (I was scared to death looking at that tiny dot of blood) Him- Don’t worry. I just cut myself and it doesn’t hurt me at all. Don’t worry ok? Me- ok if you say so. 🙂 Read More …
