Thankful Thursday: Silent Gratitude?

The prompt is  thought inducing. Silent gratitude.

I think I happen to say Thank you a little more than needed. And, there is nothing wrong with that.  No one feels sad by being thanked.

A small three year old will always point out, to say thanks, if he lets us borrow his toy or shares his chocolate. I’m sure you all have experienced such moments with little relatives or your own little ones.

I leave no stones unturned to show my gratitude to anyone. And, it indeed makes me feel that I have ticked the box.

But, I admit that there have been times,  when I withhold my joyous gratitude, only, because I feel that the other person never appreciates me, when, I do something for them.

Partially, I feel it’s fine to pay someone in their own currency. But, deep down  I know  that I should not my behavior be clouded by some one else’s attitude.

Are you thankful enough? Share something which will make you extra thankful to God or to any human being? I’m thankful for so many things to God, that I cannot even begin to pen it down. But, yes I’m-thankful for all his blessings!

 

 

This prompt, was brain tickling for sure.

Workout Wednesday #1

Hi friends,  happy hump day!

Last week my workout was on point, however due to fever and flu I was unable to do much this week.

But, this week is not over, and I plan to be good with whatever is left of the week.

Here is my plan from tomorrow- next Wednesday.

 

What are your workout plans from today – next week?

Down The Memory Lane

Feels it was, yesterday, when  I was growing up. I had the most wonder fullest of childhood ever.

Every time, my mother would be annoyed with me, I would run to my father to escape the scolding. And, how can I forget how much my father used to spoil me.

I was born after, eight years of their marriage and never did I feel that they are unhappy because I was a girl.

Thankfully, my parents ‘let me be‘ the girly girl I still am, actually. Pink still trumps every other color in my closet.

I miss the times, when I would be the one making the demands and  the demands were fulfilled.

Meeting Salmaan Khan

Make no mistakes, I was a pampered child, but I never was the one who throws a fit and acts in rage. I had to follow the rules.

I enjoyed every inch of my childhood, met celebrities who I was crushing on. I enjoyed my girlhood, and did tonnes of pajama parties with my girlfriends.

I can totally, smell my childhood. It was perfect for me, but now being a parent, I realize it’s not as perfect for the parents! It’s a lot of hard work and dedication.

That was quite a walk, down my memory lane, thinking about the pleasant memories.

Envy #ClickandBlogAStory

Envy is just a fancy, word for jealousy. But, it certainly does not mean having hatred.

We turn green with envy,  towards someone who is better than us.

As human beings, we will fail to recognize our accomplishments, and always manage to find the grass greener on the other side.

If you are an 80’s child, you might have stumbled upon this add, and trust me, I now understand the ‘deeper’ meaning of the same.

Bhala uski kameez, meri kameez se safed kese?

Translated to

How come, his shirt, is whiter (cleaner) than mine?

We all WILL envy someone in our lives, no matter how much we are deny

I envy everyone who is slim and does not have to count calories. Like my brother, he can eat the entire pizza followed by the new Oreo silk chocolate, and well, he will still be tall & slim.

And, if I indulge like this, I will have to walk 3 miles the next day and probably, stay off crisps and sweets for the whole year.

But, do I hate him ? NO ! I do hate the fact though. 

But does make me a bad person…no, mikes me human!!!

But, channel this ENVY into something more positive. How about, counting your blessing instead?

ALL ABOUT THE WOMAN

5 Vices I’m Happy About! #ThankfulThursday

What fun would it be to all good and no bad? An old man once said, all work and no play makes jack a dull boy.

So who wants to be dull? Not this girl;)


1) I watch a lot of tv shows – and it’s good why? Because, I have learnt so much in the past couple of years via tv. New words, about new actors, new trends. etc

2) I get fixated – to things and unless and until I have reached a perfect solution for an issue I don’t give up. Some event could be months away, but I’m a little too ready with everything way before the day!

3)Being impatient–  is not something I would blow my trumpet on, but it does have its adavantages. People know, that you will not be expecting delays and then they go the little mile to finish up your tailored suit or cake or anything at all.

4) Drifting away – when I feel the other person is not showing any sign of respect or love, I tend to give them space. It’s hard for me, because I kind of get emotionally invested. But, once it’s clear that the other person is only there when I’m needed or when they are free, I like to gracefully exit.

5) Wifi addict– well that’s something I think most of us are guilty about. But, really I wouldn’t know how to be, if I couldn’t have net and activities online? I’m hoping to invest more time on my blog & that’s only possible if I’m online, right 😉

This blog is a link up with Mayuri, Amrita, Tina  & Deepa for Thankful Thursday.

Valentines Day Gifts For Husband! #MMM

Valentines day, is just around the corner & we all love gifts.  I think, husbands act all cool, that they do not really want gifts, but well, when you give the gift its a different story.

Here I’m sharing my top three ideas, that are not very costly and can be done at home!

Mixed Tape  

I’m a little old school when it comes to being romantic. I made my man a mixed tape. Does a ‘mixed’ u.s.b count? 😉 It can be a mix of both yours & his favorite love songs. And, don’t forget to add ‘your’ song. The song which takes you back to your wedding day or honeymoon!

 

If, you want to make something like this, you can always sneak it in the night stand, or just  hide it, on the tray with breakfast!

 

Bake or Cook

 Bake or cook him something special. A homemade basket of muffins is a good idea. I wanted to do something else, this time. So, I made him  biscuits.

 

Chocolates 

 Valentines Day is all about chocolates, so why not gift him that?  And, if it is a personalized one it totally seals the deal 🙂

All, you need is his favorite bar of chocolate, a white paper and printout of his name with the message (in accordance with the size of the bar).

Once you wrap the white paper on the chocolate, carefully stick the message on the white paper. You can get as creative with this as you want. Use pictures, or a handwritten note etc.

So, what are you planning to give your spouse, this valentines day? I even made a  V-day ms word letter for him. That fit perfectly well in the u.s.b along with the songs!

This post is a linkup with Amrita & Deepa.

Family # Click&BlogAStory

Family is your strength and your weakness both.

The family which will gives us the strength to move mountains in one case, may make us weak to do something else.


Our family is so important to us. 

When we are born, our parents & siblings are, our immediate family.

Then our friends  who come & go are our second family.
Our spouse, followed by offsprings or kids become our immediate family.

I see this as brackets.

The bracket starts with our parents and ends with our spouse and kids.

And, we are everything in between!

And, I’m sure we are some sort of, bracket to our family as well!

Lets say a little prayer for our family!
