Dear so called “Log” (People)

I, like most of us, have been blessed with some real amazing Neighbours, distant relatives and social peers who somehow affect our family decisions. From Real family type to not so wanted ones too. But yes I am blessed. Today the MOMSTIEN prompted to write a letter to friends/neighbour or someone so I thought Why not write to Neighbours to whom usually we don’t go and say stuff.

Join us to read some wonderful letters written by 26 cool bloggers. Stay around to read some amazing letters coming up.

Dear ” (also the not so Dear One)

It has been really nice having you around but I guess now that I am a mom of 2 pretty girls, and entered my 30s, so we can start maintaining little distance.

I know most of you are little too worried of what ll happen to me n my family because we just have girls but trust me we ll make it through. Somehow we ll try and live with this fact that we adore our girls and ourselves way too much.

I also understand it’s really hard on you to see me working towards goals other than deciding weather to make aloo matar or Gobhi. But none of us can help but we ll have to live with the fact that I am going to reach every height, that I have thought of.

SO Please Lets try something new

Live n Let Live

Love

Misha

To My Dearest Laptop…

To My Dearest Laptop…

I have owned a laptop approximately since 12 years. It was around the time when Facebook was gaining popularity in India. And since then it has been a part of my routine. I know many people are against Digital world and social media, But i absolutely adore this world of mine. I feel I have a big, beautiful family inside my Laptop as well.

So following the thrill of LoL-A-Thon organised by ‘The Momsteins’. Join us to read some wonderful letters written by 26 cool bloggers. Stay around to read some amazing letters coming up.

So

My dear Lappi

Now that we have been in a relationship for last 12 years, even though you changed few bodies.. but the soul remained the way I needed. Its time I tell you all I feel for you. After all “feelings” hardly have any say if not expressed right.

First of all Thanks to you for always always being there as a partner. You are the one who knows anything and everything of my life. The Diary entries I wrote on you, the Old friends I met through you on FB n ORKUT, the Dates I fixed on Chats, the breakups I encountered, the opportunities an congratulations followed on mails.- Everything came to me through you.

Thanks to you for staying awake with me, all night long. My Insomnia turned into a productive practice because of u. I can’t thank you enough for helping me constantly with blogs, google and everything. Though you did hospitalised couple of times and i was dead scared to loose all my interactions with you and I couldn’t think of loosing you too. Well! you fought till your last breath and came back to me for the love we share.

You have been perfect company, with no judgements, no Chik Chik and above all just the one to listen. What else can a woman ask for..!!

I love you so so very much and I am happy I could write this today.

Love

Misha

Dear Badi Mummy

It was a little early you planned to move ahead, we were still not prepared and needed your Aura around us. There has not been a single day when I don’t miss you at least once. The presence you held in our lives was such that till date we can not accept that you are not around.

I wish I told you before that how much I loved you.

I wish I could tell you how I learnt to be so kind from you. I was not a bad person but You taught me how to be so considerate even to the strangers.

You taught me that No problem is so big that it can not be solved with Love, Compassion and Determination. You only made me realise,  how strongly will power works when it comes to defeat any obstacle. Be it your health, emotions or social pressures- everything can be solved if your heart decides so.

I could never deal with relations so selfless until I learnt that from you.

How could you store and then shower so much love all around you. There has never been anyone who affected my life, my mind and my soul so deep. Even though we had so much of age difference but the way you saw today, I could never see.

I miss you a lot, and so does almost everyone in family.

We know wherever you are, you are watching over us. I can’t even begin to thank you for all that you taught me, All the love you gave me, friendship you kept with me. The way you shaped me into the person that I am today. How much you have changed my life. And Thats how you will always always remain with me, alive in my heart and smiling as ever.

Love you always

D for Delhi…

D for Delhi…

Delhi.. The place where my heart still beats better.

New_Delhi_irctc_cover.jpg

PICTURE CREDIT: HOLIDAY IQ

Having the whole family settled there already, once a month was a normal frequency to visit Delhi and every time I ll be equally excited, to see my cousins and to explore some more places there. But 15 years back when I Shifted there for my higher studies, I was too over confident as I was quite known in my small town school. That confidence was out of being ace in lot of extra curricular activities and an above average student in studies. So the first day when i entered college and heard all the introductions, I understood that I stood nowhere, every single person there was much ahead of me. At once all that confidence was shattered and low self esteem started taking over.

But then right people around made it the other way. In a while I made my place in that big city too. I must say I still had my best time there, my best learnings there and met the best people there. My first real life learnings started there, Real life challenges came there. I started looking at things in a way much ahead of my small town.

My studies, My work and my life there has made me what I am today. My heart still neats faster and happier in that city. 10 years there and it stuck in me forever

Chocolates… <3 <3 <3

Chocolates… <3 <3 <3

I read Somewhere…

“A new British survey has revealed that 9 out of 10 people like CHOCOLATES and The tenth lies.” 

 

chocolate-liquido_13055191-baja1

Isn’t this so true. Chocolate is such a divine yet sinful indulgence to be in. I have been an addict since once upon a time and I guess me and chocolates can stay Happily Ever After.

Chocolate can define crux of life. If at all people could be so relaxing, so addictive and so not judging. Like chocolates do not ask questions and simple makes us feel good, I wish we had humans with that Aura. Well , I don’t think there is any other love I ll feel in this birth journey, the way I feel for chocolates.

I have been a person who survived only on 5 star and cold coffee for 2 months, literally not eating anything else. Even now chocolate is a part of my staple diet. Although due to some stupid promise I did to my Bestie. I am off chocolates till I get a fitass body.

Well.!! My true love will take me back I know, as I said. Chocolates Love Unconditionally.

My daughters..My pride.. My responsibility

By now you guys know about the blogathon I am writing these days. So today they prompted us to write about “my take on giving freedom to kids”

Well.! Being mother of girls is a totally different ball game. It brings an extra set of responsibility, especially when the daughters are born in a country like ours where even till today females are thought of to be less than males in so many things. The fight of equality is constant, whether it be workplace or home.

But I think if we as mothers take the responsibility up & raise our kids to believe that everyone is equal & deserves equal, although it might take one generation more to bring about the mindset change that we want to bring in, but the change is possible. Thus I, as a mother promise myself to instill some values & ideals in my daughters that will help them realize & understand the value of their freedom being born into a free country.

So, here are few things I want to teach my daughters Meher & Myrah to learn the true meaning & importance of freedom.

Freedom to choose their cloths

No matter what age, everyone should have the liberty to choose what they want to wear, whether it be grown-ups or kids. The narcissist that I am, I have always chosen my own cloths, accessories & looks. Although I have been doing the same for my daughters as they are too young to choose on their own, but if they decide to wear a certain dress or go by a certain look, I respect that & let them make their choices. This will definitely teach them to be comfortable in their own skin. Thus I decide to give them the freedom to choose their own cloths & looks.

Freedom to speak their mind

I cannot imagine living a life where I am not allowed to speak what I wish to. The same applies to kids as well. Sometimes we try to stop kids from saying things because it is not that cute or might look like our kids are not disciplined enough. But I believe in letting kids be kids & speak what they wish to. This is the only way – by doing mistakes – that they will learn the value of speaking the right thing in future. This doesn’t mean that I do not talk to them later if they end up saying something which they shouldn’t at their age.

Freedom to break professional stereotypes

I would love for my daughters to be super models or divas when they grow up. Well, but what I wish for them should not define what they should become. If I go by what my parents wished for me, today I might not have been a successful entrepreneur that I am. I would teach my daughters to work towards their dreams & be whatever they want to be, no matter how unconventional the path they choose is.

Freedom to happily accept rejection

One thing we all need to learn even as grown-ups is to handle rejection. But when we feel rejected, we feel resentment, hatred, anger & sometimes even suicidal. Why? Because we have not been taught since our childhood that it’s OK to be rejected. One rejection whether it be in love or a job interview is not end of the world. I would love for my daughters to be able to gracefully accept rejections, work on themselves to be able to not rejected in future & move on from the situations. That’s freedom from our own demons, isn’t it?

Freedom to be whatever they wish to be

This does not apply only to professional freedom but also in personal life. If my daughter decided to be a housewife. It is going to be her personal choice. If she decided to be a non-religious person, it is going to be her freedom of choice.

I hope by being a kind of mother that I wish to be, I will be able to teach my daughters the importance of freedom the way I want!

FREEDOM to me..

FREEDOM to me..

Few days back when I got to know about this Blogathon, what fascinated me most were the Topics covered. Agreed, Freedom as a topic to talk or write about is a bit cliché, but not when you talk about freedom of self…

        06c95f5e1064fa2030586fe330b0745e

By freedom of self I certainly do not mean how society judges others, how people look at us or how someone else pin points at us. What bothers me is how we think we are, how we look at ourself and our self perception.

Seduced with the Idea of being free, I promise to love myself. Even though at times my mind still wanders and tries every possible way to pull me back to those dark places I once was at. Dark places that still call for me against my will as to how I want to live my life. But yet again, the wild heart finds its ways to reach out where it wants to be.

I believe, If we dream, imagine & believe in ourself, experiment, understand, hope, love, we can have all that’s needed to survive and thrive. The prisons that we build around ourselves are the ones that bind us.
Truly believing in our own self is the only way to get free from every prison, every boundary and expectation.
Relationships are made to feel supported and loved but we cage them in wires of expectations, ropes of desires and lot many complaints. Staying happy with ourselves makes it much easier for us and for the world to accept, live and stay happy.

I dream of the time when I can live with an absolute free mind. Mind free from what they think of me, free from what I expect from them and free from the unseen horrors of what will happen in future.
I dream to live today, with a happy self .

I dream to shine so bright.. that those around me are enlightened too.
