For years I stuck to my love for books and writing or my attempts at writing poetry as being the stuff I was so proud of ( I still am ). I can not be proud of them I realized one night as they are gifts to me. So I am now just so thankful, but not proud.
I had a careless to hateful relation with my body and hence some body image issues kept making appearances over the years. While earlier I blamed my own food habits and lazy lifestyle for it , I also learned that subjecting the body to torture will not give results either. Rather loving yourself and your body is what makes the difference seen and felt.
In all this chaos and mixed reactions of my head and heart, I have accepted my body as it is and now work only to make it better with TLC.
So what it is one thing that you are proud of, one may ask. And I finally have the answer – My work ethics and professionalism. I hate hate hate slacking in work. And when I say work , it’s both my office tasks and the book review assignments or any other Job I take up either for money or kind or for a friend. I do not like to Not give my 100 percent to any task. I
might am lazy at house chores and it used to take me lot of mental willpower to cook elaborate meals, but give me any task at work or for blog, I will not give you a chance to for a follow up or find faults with the execution. That’s something I am proud of. The hard work and the patience and focus on details that I lack in personal life , I make up for that with my professional abilities. No matter what it takes , I don’t miss deadlines , I provide quality work and always open to learn and adapt to changes with time. That is something no one can take away from me. That’s what I am proud of. Always will be.

Offlate I am talking to a lot of people in office and outside about what they want to do and how they plan to go about it. Most times people have much dreams and aspirations to make money but not the will to work for it. How can one expect to stay comfortable and still make progress?
It is also foolish when you decide not to let yourself be stagnate or your knowledge be rusted. The ever moving economy and dynamics of work demands one to be on your feet and walking in same stride as with the business needs. Ask not what the company can do for you , but what have you done to help your cause first. If you keep doing the current work best without planning for next step, there would be no change in where you are. Gradually you will be forced to fade into the increasing masses of people like you.
One has to be well read , well informed and prepared to leap into new challenges if you ever wish to make a difference to your own life and living.
It started around the time I started earning and hence could plan gifts for myself. I have always made a big deal of my birthday as in buying something special or expensive. I can actually list the things i bought in last 7 years for my birthday.
I can not explain the feeling – its not expectation from friends or family even when I have never had a birthday that was not overwhelmingly love filled . It is neither an obsession for materialistic things. The closest I have come for an explaination is that I value the fact that I am responsible for creating my own happy moments before anyone else does it. No one owes me that. I earned that privilege as I gathered some amazingly kind people around me. But first , i should be willing to pamper myself with love.
I am far away from transitioning the same understanding to some of my flaws and relationships that I hammer due to my fears of losing peole. I still do not value and cherish myself the way I am , this version of me that is sum total of all my past decisions and dreams. And that I suppose is what I should and would be doing this year. This year for my birthday I will be writing , reading more , taking my health seriously and become a better person with a positive outlook.
Hope you all have figured out about yourself and your goals too ! Let me kNow if I can lend a helping hand to those ..
Oh , btw its 20 days to my birthday !! 💐 😀
Cultivate some barriers
Let not the world know
About your vulnerabilities
Wear your claws well
Spare not ones who crush;
Sharpen the real claws
Come one, come all
Let us take a stand
Abuse and indifference
Who else will struggle to end
Show respect for yourself.
Or fake it as best you can
