The ‘Happiness’ JOB!

When we say it’s not our job to keep others happy, the reverse of it is equally true! 

It can never be the job of others to see that we are happy! We may have grown up with the flawed premise that it’s our parents’ job, our friends’ job, our spouse’s job to keep us happy..can’t ever be..

Being happy, feeling happy is a choice that one can only choose for oneself. We would love to do stuff that makes someone else happy. The intentions can be set straight, yet whether the person chooses happiness or not, that’s up to him/her..

The only responsibility we own is of our own joy!!

N the entire world will fall short to change my mind, once I have chosen to stay happy!!

It’s a mindful road, one where I have to be super observant of how I’m treating myself. Yet, it’s fun!!

Cheers to celebrating one’s own joy!!

Excitement calling❤️

It’s 5.18 am and I’m literally waiting for my alarm to ring (which will ring only at 6.15 am lol)
Reason : a vacation, we’ve planned since we bought our car in Nov 2014!

Finally, we are driving (in a few hours) to this beautiful place, at an awesome time (read rains), with our toddler who is gonna love the journey just as much as we do.

He loves green grass, and water and flowers and cats and dogs and frogs and…loooong list

He is gonna have a rocking time this trip❤️ n so are we❤️

Life is about the thrill n adventure as my son Ekaansh lives it, every moment of his day!

He is so pure in expressing awe at such simple things like his fav show on tv, or the colorful window hanging, or his games n toys, or green grass for that matter❤️

Expressing gratitude for the most beautiful gift I’ve received (after my parents, sis, cousins, my hubby, my family) 

Here’s to many many happy, rocking, family, nature, leisure, lovely times❤️

The writer is awake :-)

For all of us who write to express our thoughts, I guess we know that writing is a phase. We feel like writing a lot sometimes, and at times we just don’t wanna write. There are times when you know you just can’t get it.

The writer phase is active for me now. It always comes with lots of feelings, emotions, aspirations for the days to come and inspirations to keep me going. 

I see these photos posted by my friends, of nature, of their pets, of their time outdoors. The pics thrill me and I wonder wow, I’ve got to do this too. Then I despair looking at my current situation. I wanna spend a lot of time with my son. Going outdoors with him is a big challenge. He loves being outdoors too yet may be I’m not just ready to take him out daily. 

It’s a block I know. Yet, I feel happy seeing the pics and knowing someone out there is doing stuff I love. I can take joy in that. 

Most of the times I’ve realized, it’s the monkey mind just finding faults with everything I have. I’ll not fall prey to that. I’m happy just feeling the warm hands of my lil one. I’m happy writing as I sit next to him, when he is napping.

There will be times, some happy n some not. I guess that’s life. Love this quote I read today.

Breathe in the AMAZING, hold on through the awful, relax and exhale through the ordinary 🙂 wow!!! Isn’t that awesome ❤

Signing off with loads of gratitude..
