When things go wrong. (blog marathon post 13)

Many a time things do not go according to our expectations. We desperately  want something but something else happens. We dread something occurring and we have to face just that. And then when we least expect it, life shines.
That is the beauty of life. That it is unpredictable. Sudden. Slow. Flowing.
At times languid, at times serene, at times tempestuous.
Nobody an predict how it will turn out, tomorrow.
Forget tomorrow, nobody can predict what will happen in just a day.

You can plan all that you want---but life totally takes over and before you realize it, it has spiraled out-of-control.

All you can do at such a time is weather it out. Wait for the storm to subside. Sail in muddy waters.

And as long as you can see the shore, just hang in there. You are going to be just fine.

  4. That's what Life is. I recollect one short story on eagles which ended with: "The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm."
    It's on us how we want to take it. #Inspired Good Morning Preeti..!!!

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

How can any Indian wedding be complete without Mehndi?
