Just for one minute, just for one minute I popped out of my room and saw Maa watching Anupama, where someone is telling her, I wish everyone had this blessing of memory loss.
Maa be like: I agree!
Okay, you want to forget?
As simple as this. You remember because you remember, nothing else.
I remember my first relationship – I was so sooo deep into the memories of it years after it got over, that I remembered the chats of our conversations for years. Years! And this is after I deleting all of those, with NO back-up at all.
At a certain point, I remember it happened in early 2019, I forgot everything. EVERYTHING.
As a matter of fact, very recently I was reading my book which I wrote early in 2019 and was going through a snippet of chat, and I was like, “Dude, I didn’t know I remembered all of this!”
Forgetting is not a super power. It’s a choice.
Today I was in a very good mood.
And I told this to my therapist.
But, that ended up becoming quite a thoughtful session.
When things are good, you get to create better things.
And that, works like magic!
If you think your life is a struggle,
Think about your Mom
Who now has to put atta of two paranthas into one
Because you decided to go on a diet.
I just downloaded the Smule App.
Sang 5-6 songs.
Okay bye, get back to reading 🙂
I read a post of a very successful business owner.
Started his business from scratch – 4 years back.
Quit his handsome day job.
To pursue his passion.
During those days, as he mentioned, his father was asked by a friend about his son. When the father told of him quitting the job, the friend mocked him.
The business owner, who is quite successful these days, went on to add about son of father’s friend, who is now looking for a job due to being laid off during the second wave.
The guy went on to remark about times changing over time 🙂
While time does change, if it also changes you from a humble human to a mocking man, the better things that time brought with itself are of little use.
The real richness is in staying humble. That is when you are able to enjoy the flavours of money.
Money without modesty is a misery.
Mastering your art takes time.
Putting in the work takes time.
Losing weight takes time.
Getting fitter takes time.
Forgiving and re-trusting takes time.
The only things that do not take time are cringing and blaming your stars. Guess what? That is why they make us feel so low.
Anything that takes us to the next level has to go through the stair case, because the elevator is already crowded with those who want to get it fast 🙂
Just when life is about to get even, something gets uneven.
Not to make sure you’re screwed up always.
Rather to make sure you are even despite the uneven.
Think of your college days.
Even if you pursued the hardest course.
It wasn’t as tough as life. Not even a bit.
Because in college there was a destination.
Our path was fixed.
The only thing was to move on someone else’s path, reach the destination set by someone else, and life was set.
In life, no one truly knows the destination.
The path is even more uncertain.
And then, we crave for success more. Because the college taught us so.
The way forward, is inward.
The way backward (to the college), is outward.
The way to choose your way, will determine your way.
Your understanding of yourself.
Thus, most people stay glued to the screen.
My parents have been eating a lot of cake in the month of June.
Mom’s birthday was 1st June, then Father’s Day and then my birthday as well.
In case of Mom and Father’s day, there were 4 and 2 cakes respectively cut at our home.
So in between those, when my sister sent two pieces of my niece’s birthday cake, I quietly sneaked out and gave it to the guard’s family that stays on the ground floor of our building.
Also, they deserve good things in life! (If my parents weren’t there to have an eye on me, I would share a lot of good things with them!! :D)
When I came back upstairs and told that to my Mom, my Mom scolded me.
For wasting so much cake!
Perhaps forgetting that she already has diabetes.
And Papa is obese for a long time.
But no matter what, a delicious cake need not be wasted!
I regret giving away the cake.
Not because she scolded at me or because it was too tasty!
But because you cannot change someone who refuses to be changed.
