Some people become more interesting when they drink, others..when you drink!


Not everyone uses their rearview mirrors.
We all are capable of a lot more than we even attempt to reach for. Infact most people I know don’t care to use most of their abilities, even when they can make their lives much better.


Everyone is less mad the next morning.
The sun literally sheds light on any problem, big or small, and everyone is less angry and more willing to make things better the next day. Sleep over it.

Willingness matters more than ability.
Coz when we really really want it, we make ourselves able.


Everyone loses their marbles some time.
(No exceptions here!) We just need someone to help us find them.


Success affects people’s memory.
Some people claim to remember you when you become a ‘somebody’, but tend to forget you when it’s their turn!


In love..don’t propose when too happy, don’t breakup when too angry.
Actually, in any relationship, emotional extremes are bad places for decision making, but most of us realize this only when it’s too late. That means we gotto know what we’re feeling when we’re feeling it…


I think my left brain is taking over!*  I seem to be developing a fondness for lists of late. Although making a list doesn’t guarantee getting the job done, it seems to trick my mind into believing that the work has at least begun! From regular simple to-do, gift, grocery, pros-n-cons lists to more complicated tables of two or more lists, I’ve got it all. So here’s another list, this one is about ‘the reasons for making lists’ 😉 wow, I think my left cerebral hemisphere just had a tiny orgasm!

1) Being a more “feeling” kinda person and inclined towards a haphazard way of functioning, I’ve realized that making lists has helped me structure my chaos. I’ m still a mess, but an organized mess 😀

2) Outsourcing memory! no need to put pressure on my walnut sized brain to remember anything anymore!

3) Looking at the list puts additional pressure on me to do what the list says instead of whiling away my time chasing butterflies ( oh, I’ve actually done that too..anything to escape!)

4) Lastly, and thankfully, I’ve actually managed to get things done, think clearer, and even sleep better knowing that my ‘guardian’ lists are watching over me.

ah! the gift of being organized…I know I won’t be ‘listless’ anymore 😉

*Although it doesn’t have “scientific validity” some researchers claim that despite being a part of a much larger cognitive system that produces unity of thought and action, the two hemispheres of the brain carry out specific functions differently. The dominance of the left hemisphere reflects in an analytical and logical way of functioning, whereas the so-called right brained people are more free-flowing and creative.

Come festival season and our inboxes are bombarded with wishes from all over the world! Some go “wish you and yours a very happy whatever!” While others are just “forwards” of colorful words strung together to make ’em look pretty! But in the crowd of these impersonal messages, when you receive a text that is an obvious “blanket” wish from someone you know well enough, how do you feel? Based on who the sender is:-

Do you think , “you sent me a BLANKET text!? hmm… so I’m as unimportant as the other 500 people you sent that very same text to…thx a lot!”
Or do you feel, “you sent ME a blanket TEXT, aww! It’s nice of you to have remembered me among 500 other people on your list!” (ok, we never really think that, but you know…we’re genuinely grateful!)
if you know of such a “blanket text” floating around that you didn’t get, do you feel left out?

Our responses to the above questions describe the way we live our lives. Coz it isn’t just about “compliments of the season” It’s about what we’ve trained our eyes to see! What our minds have been programmed to read decides what we notice in a situation…yes, the glass half full or half empty thing. But think about it, how happy we allow ourselves to feel depends largely on what we think we mean to someone. NOT on what we actually mean to them. Bottom line, it’s always our choice! Of course, I ain’t consistently unaffected by the initiatives or responses of others. But I do keep that influence to a minimum. And trust me, it’s worth it 🙂

With social networking making the world smaller, the number of people we connect with is growing! And it’s practically impossible to “accidentally” not forget to wish someone, so most of us choose the safest and quickest way :- Mass texting! Besides, it’s just a wish, right? So what’s the big deal?!

As for me….mail me, ping me, buzz me, text me…I don’t care…I’m happy you wished me anyway 😉
