Seven Sins

the question: If you had to embody one, which of the seven deadly sins would you be --Wrath, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Lust, Envy or Gluttony?

I was going through the Vogue India website and stumbled upon this one and was quite an  interesting read actually... so what would your answer be?? But it was the responses that amused me more... the question was clear... 'if you had to embody' but our celebrities either were too cautious of their image or they did not get the question clearly as most of the ladies came up with 'Gluttony' as answer...they more answered it in a way as if which sin would they prefer to have... Gluttony of course sounds like one of the safest one to mention in public at least... Given a choice what would you embody.... I know what I can and which one I can't... I can't ever personify Wrath... I'm not capable of it... neither can I represent Greed that's not my cup of tea... but I know I can embody Gluttony ... I may be a tempting indulgence for never know ! and I can embody Lust with equal flair who can't you never how others see you as.... Envy of course I'm sure there are one or two in the world who for whom my synonym is Envy and I can't help that... Talking about Sloth, well I'm quite capable of it just that i keep trying hard not to walk on that line and hence would not prefer to embody it for sure...And then comes my favorite and that's Pride who even got it in the list of the seven deadly sins !! I can proudly embody pride and I have no qualms about it. Anyway it was a good read hence sharing with you guys....

Faith and mountains

Either you have faith or you have nothing, there is no middle way here... So what do you choose... Hope is always better than despair ! Sometimes in life all you need is a blind faith that things will be fine... that there will be a miracle... If you have faith as a mustard seed you will say to this mountain 'move' and nothing shall be impossible !

note to self

It's a personal new year... I'm officially into my 30s and I feel if not great then at least good about it. You can't run away from time, can you ? That's my main concern ... time... I have come to a point when 24 hours a day is just not enough for me, with so much to do, so much to achieve, so much of the world to see, so much new to learn, so many people to connect with. so many good books to read when will be able to do all that, my time definitely is limited, as if everyone's else ! Media is full of articles related to getting into 30s or turning 30... I don't understand the fuss about it, but I do agree that by this age one should at least contemplate what one has achieved and where does one want to go.... personally I am a late bloomer, I haven't achieved anything significant other than an eviable degree and a decent job and I definitely can't come up with 'been there done that' sentence, as there are hundreds of things I haven't done and thousands of places I haven't been to...literally ! So, getting in thirties did ring a bell giving a brief attack thinking the time was so limited and so much was left to so but I soon realized the time is never going to be enough and you can't do it all ... nevertheless there are things you should know by now and reminders you should keep in mind so that the days ahead will inculcate the wisdom you gathered from all those years behind ....So, this is a note to self....

it's your life... and it's your only life... get some control !!

you have a long way to go and lots to do

you are never too old to try

your happiness is your choice 

love your body as much as you love your soul 

read voraciously

sleep happily

never loose the curious child in you

learn how to say 'no' by this age people should know how to treat you well

there is more to your life than what you put on the social media 

travel as much as you can

don't let your fear hold you back from speaking your mind or doing the right thing

respect time

laugh and take it all lightly 

you can't have it all and you can't do it all and it's okay !

try touching other lives in your own possible ways

make the man upstairs proud for blessing you with this wonderful thing called 'life'

the ever changing sky !!

there are few things as good as gazing upon a beautiful sky and it's changing colors.... I do that a lot and it never stops to awe me, sometimes with its different hues, sometimes with the shape the clouds take, sometimes with the twinkling of stars and sometimes with the hide and seek that sun and moon play, it's a kaleidoscope reflecting various colors of life... and mostly reflecting what you are seeking so, next time look up with happiness and gratitude and it will be reflected back .....
