Just 5 random things I experienced, (re)discovered, learnt…this week:-

Kids and sarcasm don’t blend!
It makes me so very happy everytime I am touched by the divinity of my 2 and half year old niece. She has no idea what ‘sarcasm’ is! Try being sarcastic with a kid and you’ll get slapped with oodles of innocence and unconditional love. It doesn’t cease to amaze me how kids are untouched by the corruption of the adult mind..the need to complicate things! Isn’t is awesome? Why..why can’t we keep it?!

Your truth is only yours
Most of our ‘issues’ stem from misunderstandings..differences in definitions and perceptions.It’s what we think the other person is doing that becomes reality for us, not necessarily what they actually intended. One’s point is only what it’s understood to be. It doesn’t have to be the truth, it just has to be yours and that’s enough. Sometimes.. that’s not very nice. Sigh.

Carol me anytime!
Christmas Carols in January? Why not? 😉 The season may have passed, but the spirit of joy stays. Feeling low or not? Just sing along (howl, in my case) with as many christmas carols as you have time for, and feel the magic of walking in a winter wonderland. Works every single time! Coz magic needs no season, and happiness…no reason.

Women can compete at anything.that’s it.
Dresses, shoes, buying vegetables! yup! Here’s the scene:- Down at the supermarket, aisle no.5, 2 ladies armed with shopping baskets, their hands sifting through a huge pile of red juicy tomatoes, and then…their pace picks up and they got more aggressive when they realize that they are both going after the ‘best’ in the lot! teeheehee. Their eye-hand coordination was amazing..really! Their hands checked and bagged the perfect ones as their eyes scanned for the next target, at lightning-fast speed. And when one of them was done, she had this smug look on her face. She even threw me a “now you can take what’s left” kinda glance as I stood there, empty basket in hand, waiting for them to finish the ‘race’. Fun. Lol.

Do the obvious dodo!
Why do we humans act so stupid sometimes? We refuse to see the obvious and then get into trouble or complain that things aren’t good enough! Like..if you serve correctly and with a smile, you will get a better tip, it’s obvious! If you jump a red light, you will have to pay a fine, d-uh! If you leave everything for the last minute, you will get delayed, won’t you? Yet, most of us still don’t do these so-called logical things. Why do we overlook even when we know it’ll cost us? Apathy, tsk tsk.

 


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.
