About the night

There are those days when you’re super happy and feel on top of the world. And this happiness comes slowly gliding down when expectations creep in. These expectations are so self initiated that you wonder why you had them anyways. But there they are looming in your brain and mind trying to wander into those ecstatic moments that you’re having and desperately making a way into that weak spot to make you wonder why you’re so happy. 

But, I have finally figured.  There is fortunately a solid solution to remove these most logically insanse thoughts which so sneakily want to ruin your day. Yes, I did. 

Go back to how you started your day, that moment that gave you the maximum happiness. Re-live it now. As if it were rewinding itself in your head over and over and how much you cherished it. How joyful the whole experience was. 

Go into the rewind mode and then fast forward it to how it should happen again. Totally and absolutely skip what happened when the ‘expectations’ set it.

Yes, that’s it.

It’s that simple.

An ode to stalkers 

That eery feeling when you know someone is watching every move you make. What you do and what you don’t. One is not even conscious of the almighty as much. But a human has that capacity to make you feel watched. 

I’m a self turned atheist, well almost. Convent schools eventually make you want to become that. Entire schooling I was taught, Jesus is watching everything you’re doing. So do the right thing. It’s another story that I’m still trying to comprehend what exactly ‘is the right thing’. Anyways, I turned into a self proclaimed, almost an atheist since I began to realise that Jesus was no one but a human stalker. 

Someone who would try to hack into your social media account. Or someone who would know what time you go and come back from work, aka, neighbor. Or someone, who would try and fetch every minute detail of the stuff you use at home, including the incense, mind you. And have the audacity to ensure that you know what you’re doing is wrong. Honestly, never in my wildest of dreams or my convent education did I think that it was wrong to put room fresherners in the house. Seriously people. 

Please note, none of the characters mentioned above who claim to be self righteous gods and goddesss are either family members, nor friends, they aren’t even related to me in any which way. They nevertheless  have more information about me than my own parents. Can you beat that! Maybe they feel godly enough to keep a ‘watch’ over me.

But dear stalkers, get a life. The world needs you. There are enough issues to be dealt with than my measly minute life. There are people who genuinely need help, and so does the environment. You super intelligence and the spark of a detective can help plenty of people who genuinely need your esteemed services which you provide for free. Since you’re so rich with time and money, please divert your energies. 

Because the world needs you. Not a miniscule entity like myself. May the force be with you to find your calling to contribute towards a larger goal. God bless.

The Lost Chance

Many opportunities strike our way, whether it’s for work or building new friendships, but our fears and apprehensions don’t allow us to explore them. We have a preconceived thought process based on our past experiences which come in the way thereby restricting our own growth and potential that we aren’t aware of.

Past experiences, specially which have been bad, leave a scar and the mind finds it difficult to think that an alternate outcome is possible. Subconsciously we try and create a comfort zone for ourselves which is free of such accidents being repeated. Generalising human behaviour and tendencies is what we get used to. They become hard wired when we fail repeatedly and eventually we lose the will to even believe that things can change, which further pushes us to an even smaller zone.

Human beings have unlimited potential, can that potential be tapped within our comfort zone? You’re correct, it can never happen. The only way to do so is to become fearless, learn the art of failing but not being defeated. Instead of generalizing, we can view things as they are, objectively. There are good people around and there are tonnes of opportunities one can explore.

Let’s not lose the chance that can open the door to our growth and happiness. Let’s keep our eyes and mind wide open and embrace the things that come to us.

Work from home, a boon or a limitation?

 

sb10062935a-002

This post is for work at home moms, who’ve made this choice after having worked in an organised sector for a while, for higher flexible timings, being there for the kids, and various other reasons which they thought would be less stressful. All this is true, but can their work graph go up  while working from home is the question. Few pointers out of my own experience of trying out this method:

  1. Office at home – When news goes around that you’re now at home, people skip the the ‘work’ part by default. Well, that’s how it is! The number of guests that pour in because they know you’re at home (didn’t anyone tell them that there’s a mobile phone that can be used to find out if one is free?) dramatically increases. People whom you don’t even know, some distant relatives they would say, drop in to see what you’re doing and have a cuppa chai (so casual isn’t it?). If you’re at home, obviously you’re freely available. Since you’re at home, no no, we don’t want to disturb you but can someone come and pick this parcel from your place (it’s quite central you see, the location, so it can become a hub of pick ups and drops since everyone else is ‘not at home’).
  2. The number of bells that would ring eventually, postal delivery, milkman, gardener, land line phones,  this and that, oh gosh you left the water running somewhere, that sudden realization when you see the neighbor at the door! One has no idea that this is what happens at home daily!
  3. Meetings – Yes to meet someone for work, calling them home is not a great idea at all! So yes, we do land up spending extra time and money at coffee shops or totally shortlist the prospective people we could’ve met otherwise. The ratio is usually 1:100.
  4. Beware if you’re a dog owner –  My god he’s a full time job. How the hell was it being managed when you weren’t at home. He seems to be so clingy now and you feel he probably suffers from a serious attention disorder, half the time one feels like your only goal in life is to to save your work from him, no not from competition, its only him. Your expenses therefore increase because of the number of stationery items, shoes, cushions, door mats that have been ruined during the process.

Nevertheless, if you’re lucky, the work will be stable fortunately. In fact one has the feeling of  becoming some sort of a genius. With stronger reflexes and the ability to multi-task in short time spans goes to another level totally. But as far as the work graph goes. There’s a huge question mark that hangs in there.

Just a Fact

Invariably, if I don’t log on to an email account or any website that I follow for what seems a long gap, the next time I log on, undoubtedly it results in creating a new password. Not that it’s such a humungus task. But, what follows makes it so. A change in password of one site will result in the change in password for all the others, the password law of motion. This is because the new password by default replaces the old password even in your brain, leaving no trace of the old one unless and until you have it saved elsewhere, and in my case, when the loss of password happens, the ‘elsewhere’ also gets lost with it. 

Hope I’m not the only one suffering from the ‘password law of motion’
