Reasons to thank God

Got a sms yesterday, but thought worth sharing with here too.

If you have food in your fridge
clothes on your body
a roof over your head
and a place to sleep
you are richer than 75%
of the entire world's.

If you have money in your wallet
a little change,
and can go anywhere you want
You are among the top 18% of the
world's wealthiest people.

If you wake up this morning
with more health than illness,
you are more blessed than the
million people who will not
survive this week and will die.

If you can actually read
this message and understand it,
you are more fortunate than the 
3 billion people in this world
Cannot see,
Cannot read, 
or suffer mental retardation.

Life is not about complain, pain or sorrows
it's about a thousand other reasons
to thank God for.

I agree with this, but some of my freinds told me this will make me stagnant, will not let me aim for the stars, that I will never do well in life. What do you think?

Return Policy

NO excuses for not being here...for letting go of my blog...which at one point of time was my best getaway...
there are more than 5--6 drafts, return drafts, that I had intended to be my welcome back post after this uncalled for hiatus but forgetting all of them I am writing this without any editing or calling, just so as to get back to writing. Writing for just me and whoever wants to read or listen…to my much ado about nothing.

But this post is not about nothing….it’s about me making a promise, and another promise to try and not break the former promise and sticking to my blog and not neglecting it ever again!

Most of us do that at some point or the other, no I’m not trying to shift the blame or downplay my laziness, but we all do take things for granted, especially people and relationships. And we all know this too, which relationship we can take for granted and which not. But dearies, the ones that you take for granted are the best one and they are meant to be treasured, cherished and held on to.

I wanted to write about getting married and marriage and all the relationships that it brings with it, but would like to stop here and just thank all those bloggers for stopping by, and making me feel special by letting me know I was missed, Thank you so much, and these relationships I shall never take lightly!

Its all grey

Early to bed, early to rise,no longer makes you healthy wealthy or wise. It's only when you are feeling unwell, or don't have anything interesting, to do that you sleep early, and now that you don't do anything interesting, don't go out, means you will never know what is happening around you, hence no you are not getting any wisdom!

There was a time when people used to respect one's degrees and scores, now it's all about which university or college you passed out from, how much you paid to get into and which car you use and where you party.

It's not how honest you are, it's how many times you dint get caught, or rather how you manage to squeeze out something extra for free.

There is no black or white, its all grey now.

When I was in school it was a sin to be seen with a boy but today it's a sin to accept that you are out of school and yet a virgin! It's almost unacceptable to be loyal towards anyone. Ad of you are, you are "boring".

So many concepts have changed, people used to fear aids, as its forever, but now it's for everyone

Fruits and veggies were the best fitness mantra, but now these same fruits and vegetables are so full of toxics that if used without any process straight from the lap of mother nature, you may also end up in her lap, dead.

First it was family and friends but now friends are your real family. A friend is someone whom you choose but family is not a choice, gone are the times when family was a gift from God.

Gone are the days when we wanted our kids to be innocent and naive, today, I want my daughter to be smart, shrewd and even cunning if the situation demands.

Relationship status, involved but not committed.

Gone are the days of janam janam Ka pyar, undying love and soul mates till eternity.

Relationships today have become very frivolous, be it amongst families, friends or more. Recently a friend of mine (in today's Facebook age, every one you know is a "friend" irrelevant of everything else.)

So like I was saying, a friend of mine, whom I know from my yoga classes, an 18 yer old, pretty girl from a good family, recently got engaged.

No there's nothing wrong in getting engaged, but then, she was seeing someone else,

 she was in a long distance relationship, which I found out was a relationship of great understanding, understanding that there would be no strings attached, no commitments.

She was with this guy who is settled outside India, so they used to meet up as and when circumstances allowed them, she used to go to a city which was convenient for him when he was in the country, and "meet up, catch up and a enjoy each other's company", whatever that means is upon your interpretation.

Throughout the period that they were together, maybe around a yer or so, both knew the minute they found someone more suitable more "right", the other person would bolt faster than the speed of light.

And thats what happened, she met a righter Mr. Right, and decided to tie the knot. But how does she know he's more right than the older Mr. Right?

In our urge to live better, to live luxuriously, somewhere we have left our emotions and feelings in the old suitcase. Even friendships these days is such a light hearted matter, you're my friend if you say good things about me, compliment me, but if you show me the mirror, I'll crack it.

Relationships are also equally fragile, we all know there are lots of fishes around, so if one dsnt suit you try some other. Divorces are so common these days because of the same reasons.

They say our lives are more stressful, more tensed, but why did this happen?
When we have the best technologies, best gadgets machines to help us work more smoothly, easily, and more efficiently, why are we becoming like machines.

Who is eating away our emotions? Our feelings?
Read a nice quote some time back, all things that make us happy and are good for us are not things. But...

Happy Holi

Happy Holi friends, hope the colors of life complete your world just as you desire. Sometimes we dont know what we want, at those moments trust God.
Have fun, enjoy but be safe. New page, old friends, deadly combination, see you all at my new  place.

And ofcourse, a very happy INTERNATIONAL women's day to all my female friends. I was talking to friend of mine, asking her why we celebrate women's day specifically, and never a man's day, just cause its a man's world and we just have these few scattered mother's day, sister's day and national international women's days, and she tells me, Pooja, its not like that, we celebrate things that DESERVE to be celebrated, maybe the men folk dont deserve it. But then  I was like there are lots of men whom I think do deserve to be celebrated and looked upon on. But then on closer inspection I realized its nothing like it, the card manufactures know which side their butters their breads. So its more about the women in your life!! Enjoy...celebrate and dont think too much about it, after all its much ado abt nothing!! Aint it?
