We all have good days and bad days. But some days are just mean! The kinda days you wanna hold by the shoulders and shake violently and scream, “why…why?” dramatically, like in old bollywood flicks. Today seems to be one of those days for me, and it brings to mind all those times when we feel, “don’t you just hate it when…

…you’re having an awesome hair day (how RARE is that for some of us!!)…your hair looks like Paul Mitchell styled it himself in front of your two by two dresser, BUT you have no plans for the evening, and worse, you’re sick!

…you need coffee to stay alive, not just awake AND you just found out that it’s gonna be a long and hectic day, no escape!

…the so-called quick-dry nailpaint on your toes gets nicked while wearing jeans after TWENTY minutes of applying it!

…you discover scratches on your car that look like freddy krueger came alive but no way on earth can you find out who did ’em coz it happened when you were away and your car was PARKED

…the fonts and layouts of a presentation you put days into making ‘amazing’ go awry coz the software on the laptop you are expected to use is outdated! Stupid technology!

…after months of struggling to motivate yourself to workout, you finally start..but the very next day you get your periods, way before their actual date!

aaarrrrrggggh! I just hate such days. Period.


“If there is one thing nature has in abundance other than is patience.”

Ever watched nature at work? Its at ease… takes its own sweet time to bloom, blossom, change, grow..

..then why do we struggle at times? Is there such a thing as trying too hard?When something matters to us a hellava lot, we tend to cling on to it. Hoping that tightening our grip will make things better. Pushing for the result to come…sooner and in our favour. The more important the matter, the harder we push. And adding a negative emotion called “worry” only makes things worse! But it’s only human.

I guess nature gets its immense patience from the truth that it never questions the creator’s plan. It just does what it does.

We have that choice too. Yet more often than not, we choose the more “stressful” option!  Patience seems to stem from faith and testing times remind us of how fragile our faith is.

And this isn’t about God, I mean, you could be an agnostic or an atheist..and you’d still have no understanding of or control over the occurance of events, random or otherwise! Like the believers you’d still have to deliver your best and then…wait.

You cannot push a butterfly out of it’s cocoon.  All you can do is wait as you watch over it…and believe it will be the most beautiful thing… and that …it can fly 🙂
