Depression…

Depression – never heard much of this when I was a kid, but since the time I have lived out I have heard more about depressions, no doubt there are few types of depressions, and there are people who struggle with that, and even there might be zillions of people who might have fought with it in their past as well.

I will not talk in much detail version of it, but of course I can tell you one thing which I have seen around me, heard of it and experience it too.

There was my roommate back in Mumbai, she was taking medication under depression and I always tried to talk to her, and she tried to explain it to me we cannot solve it the way I can see her and I am thinking of; but according to me it’s all there in your head.

I mean at some point we all feel sad, shattered, broken or may be too depress; but only we can come out of it; if we want to.

of course there must be some medical thing, or we have some sort of nerve thing also, but can’t we see the brighter side?

People with depression have a weak heart, weak will, they cannot stand for themselves, or maybe they are those who are too perfect; and never fails in anything; and then there comes one fall, one failure and they feel they are finished.

Not all feel this way but yes few people felt this way.

I guess the only solution is to communicate; if something is bothering you; try to talk it out, because keeping it with you will hamper only your good energies, and this will take you to depression.

Trust me everything will come to you in your own time but for that you need to be happy, content and talk about your problems; because the wise man says once; it’s good to share once what is bothering you, the world will be a cheerful place, if we all feel fearless about our emotions and start living our life with less stress.

Even I feel stress and I can say I feel depress too, but I cannot overflow the depression and any other type of anxiety over me, I have a strong faith that things will be fine in their own time and you cannot worry on the things you cannot control.

Just keep doing what makes you happy and rest will fall into the place by itself.

DEATH…..

Death is the harsh truth of life; we heard so many times of losing someone’s life now and then.

But I felt it really hard when it was my grandparents; till the time it doesn’t happen to you, you don’t feel the pain; that’s the irony of humans.

we all know that one day we all will die, when we don’t know, but this is something we cannot control.

so what we should do, live life to the fullest, make someone smile today, do what makes you happy.

The above lines you must have heard zillions of times, but this is the only truth, we all are running behind something, someone is getting up early to feed their child, to get wonderful bread and butter for the family.

Someone is awake all the night so that we all can sleep and their family too, everyone is doing something or the other thing to survive to live.

but we forget to actually smile, breathe and see each other as humans.

What I think is whoever is there with you at your present time, just create splendid memories with them, so that once they are not there; they will always remember you in the excellent memories and smile back.

In most of the earlier blogs I have clearly emphasized that we should be happy, content, and grateful towards tiny miny things; but don’t you think this is the only truth, if you are happy you can do wonders and my grandfather used to say just live in the moment and do as much as you can.

Eat, pray, play and make someone smile.

Get that rose for that pretty lady and see the difference.

Make a WISH..

Everyone is making a wish deep down their heart; and there are some unspoken wishes and there are some wishes we never courage enough to tell it to even ourselves.

Don’t you think life is too short and we should try to make a wish now and then.

After all if there is no wish, life will be so boring, you want nothing and there is no wish; then there is no fun.

I have a wish to own a house made of my efforts and money; I have a dream to decorate it the way I want like every corner of that house.

There should be plants, lights, Suttle colors, music and a splendid view.

Can be a small house but it’s okay enough for me and memories to cherish for life.

Your wishes can be in any sizes but I guess to keep us going there should be some wish list so that we can wake up with a goal in our mind and then sleep with the urge of getting up again.

And trust me wishes do comes true all you need to do is just take a pen and paper and write what all you want and then see the magic soon it will happen with you.

Just the way it is happening with me.

So hurry up and get yourself a pen and paper and make a wish.

Cooking or not cooking

I am a big foodie but for cooking I am still learning and experimenting with the dishes.

I started cooking when I was a kid and then out of boredom I ran out of the kitchen, what I feel I don’t have patience for cooking.

In, my early career I used to live in a PG who provides food; simple task.

Later on after almost four years I realised that it’s time to move in a flat where you can do all things by yourself.

From there the love for cooking took birth and then it last for a year and then I started enjoying my cooking.

After leaving Gurgaon I have worked in Mumbai and during the lockdown, I used to cook for myself and then I realised that cooking actually makes you happy but when you want to cook; there are people who love cooking for others and they can do it daily unlike me; I am an occasional cook and I do it when I feel like doing it.

Everyone has a choice of doing things in their own way so you cannot force somebody for something they don’t want.

I am glad that I am that lucky that nobody forced cooking on me it was always my choice and will be my choice when to cook or when to not.

Till the time keep eating and doing what makes you happy.

And if cooking makes you happy invite me over. 🙂

Love

Sweater weather….

Winters are nearly ending and again looking back there is so much to cherish, I am not a big fan of winters, but this year after coming back from Mumbai; somewhere I have enjoyed this weather.

Be it waking up and having a warm cup of coffee, getting cozy on bed and reading my favourite novel; it was all very warm!

Even I have watched so many Christmas movies and I felt it like I am there only surrounded with snow.

Each weather has their own memories and essence in one’s life; like if I recall the days when we used to go to school during winters it was very hard to get up from your bed; even washing the face was a task!

the best part was the pahadi food mom used to make for us to keep us warm and trust me it was delicious 🙂

Then the bonfire life with background music on and feel the chill; this can happen only in winters; don’t you think so?

post school it was work life and wow there used to be chai break and winters and chai they have very good chemistry.

Even I like the clothes, colorful warm sweaters, long coats, long socks and the caps!

I have an enormous collection of caps, and trust me I can keep experimenting with my looks if I have loads of cap.

I don’t know how much you can relate to me but yes winters are nice when you are with friends and family or maybe when you are with your favourite book.

Since now summer is coming and winter is already vanishing, I am gonna miss all those chill moments 🙂

The one who Rouse!

#DADWILLBEDAD

My blogs are a compilation of people; who have taken the risk to do something out of the box, who were rebellious, funny, and crazy?

Somewhat they did what I always wanted to do and trust me such people keep inspiring me I just can’t stop talking about them.

I met such souls in every city be it DELHI, MUMBAI, BANGLORE, GOA……

It’s not that I am searching for these souls, but it’s just I am lucky to have them in my life and I can tell their stories through my blogs, you never know they might inspire you as well.

A few weeks back I started following a professional dancer on Instagram and queried about the dance class timing and all.

He was very generous; he told me and keep asking me to visit at least for the demo class; I was so busy with work from home that I couldn’t.

One fine day when I was actually scrolling the Instagram profiles I told him to let’s meet and hear his story, he said yes, and after two failed plans; that’s so me.

We finally agreed when to meet and where to meet!

He came to pick me up and then we went to a TEA SHOP…

And trust me, the moment he picked me up he was way to funny; I was laughing aloud!

And then The TEA came and as promised he started telling me his story like how he always wanted to dance and never get the chance in his school, but in college, he got the chance and how he wanted to do a course of mass communication and he ended up with engineering and MBA!

How he started working with corporates and how he used to clear the interviews as smooth as butter.

And later than how he quit the job, came back to his hometown, and realize that he should opt his dance as a profession; being a hip hoper to taking part in DID in past and then joined the D MANIAX for his journey; then asking dad for that one chance to showcase his skills and he can do much better by his dance rather than working for some process-oriented corporate!

He did research, learned the forms, dedicated endless hours to his dance and now after three years look at him he is owning an academy with almost 100 + students and the majority is female!

I mean wow; the inspiring soul how he took a charge of his life and work really hard for his dream.

While speaking with his students; the kids were really cute and telling me how KSHITIJ is much better teacher than anyone else; a friend….

I think we all are looking for a friend and KSHITIJ in our teachers; who understand our fear; help us with the skills, polish it and give us the wings to fly.

I am sure he will be super successful because his attitude towards dance and his students is not to be on top or compete with anyone, but to be better than yesterday and that’s the best thing I found in his perspective.

Being a person from the hardcore industry I eventually asked him what is your 5 year vision, and he said there is no vision of five years I just want to do a step ahead in a year from where I am today.

I mean it’s good; you learn from someone you just met.

KEEP ROCKING

that one BREAK…..

I love taking breaks now and then; it makes me feel alive and think what is it I needed the most.

Breaks are important whether its work, relationship, from normal routines or with anything which you are doing regularly.

Even when we were in school there used to be lunch break of 30 minutes and that was the best thing, and the key thing we always looking out for; the reasons were billions, a. I wanted to have my lunch b. Someone wants to see some random face; we used to see the entire school in one place.

And the saga continues; after school it was college; and again the most obvious things breaks; where we can gossip; chit chat and look around.

In, my school days I was a person who used to roam or take the rounds of the school ground.

And after school it was me and my headphones and the roads…

BREAKS are important whether it’s a quick break in a day or long break from your career…

Or whenever you switched from a place to another; or even you need a break from your best friend to recreate the charm 🙂

I take a break and trust me that makes me happy and I always come up as a strong and positive person.

Because what all I missed during my work; I do it on my break; and once the break is over I am more confident and ready for the additional work.

I think we all should take some break, to rethink, to rejuvenate, to be happy, to get relaxed and to spend some good quality time with our self…

so what are you waiting for get up and take a break.

Love

I miss MUMBAI…..

If someone ask me about my favourite city, or a city who changed me for forever; the answer would be MUMBAI……

From, the age of 18 I wanted to be in MUMBAI... but seems to be far and very far from me.

There was nobody whom I can go to and then in 2015 there was a good friend who told me or forced me to come to MUMBAI, and finally I made it happened.

It was my first flight; I was so nervous but MUMBAI was calling me, the moment I landed over there my heart was smiling and feeling LOVE.

My friend was there waiting for my flight and there we go Andheri west veera desai for the first time 🙂 I cooked food for me and my friends, we talked a little and I was so tired that I slept early…

The very next my friend told me the plan, and I was ready for everything, beaches, pubs, market and his favourite coffee shop I mean wow…..

While returning from Mumbai there was a pain and I felt like there is something I am leaving behind.

After, almost three years in 2018 I made a plan again to meet my love MUMBAI….

The company I used to work in Delhi had their head-office so it was work who made me visit Mumbai and again those four days were the happiest, every time I am in this city, this city made me smiled 🙂

then in the same year I planned again for Mumbai and this time it was for a month and by that time I have decided that I will move to Mumbai if I got a chance.

God has a plan for me in 2019 I moved to Mumbai, spend almost a year before covid hit; and trust me, the experience of living in a PG, going for a morning walk, exploring every bit of Mumbai was so good.

MUMBAI made me happy every single day, I fall in love with people, there are so many stories from tea to beach, from cafe to hotel….

From knowing others to knowing my ownself, to travel with friends to solo…

Everything was so perfect in 2019 with this city, I am missing this city and the people like anything but don’t know when I can be back there for like forever!!!

Till, the time all I can do is gaze the picture and just call my another family who are there full of love and making me smile and me and they all are missing me every single day.

MUMBAI PLEASE CALL ME BACK NOW IS THE TIME I NEED YOU AGAIN.

Love

My Decision….

It was about a day before when one of a friend text me to catch up with him since he was in town; I was okay with it; since I was meeting him after two years I was very excited about this meeting.

He finally came to pick me up, and we went to a coffee shop, as mentioned in my earlier blog I have recently quit my new job and he asked me what I was up to these days related to my career.

I told him I have recently quit this job and my blogging is continue; however, he started giving me the advice what should I do and I should write on some specific content not on stories.

As per him nobody is interested in reading someone’s story!

He was just trying to tell me wake me and think what is I want from life and career; that made me little upset and demotivated.

Bur then I thought it’s my life; my choices and I am the only person handles my happiness and settlement; just to please others or make others justify, I will not live a life what others are living.

I will not continue working on a job where I am unhappy and I cannot show my creativity, potential!

I will not maintain a relationship with half hearted and cry everyday on it.

Life has been stressful now and then but it’s only us can make it easy by our own choices.

I am glad that I took the chances and risk so that I won’t be regretting later for it.

It’s my life my decision and atleast if the decision is wrong, I will blame me for that not anyone else.

So whether it’s job, my dreams, my clothes or choosing a partner for life; it will be my soul decision.

And I guess we all are individual and the decision should be ours, which is going to affect are life now and then.

So love yourself and respect your decisions.

Countdown….

Many people wanted to work from home in their respective jobs! Covid made this happen for most of us; but now what?? Is it really happening or we need to get back to our offices?

I recently quit one more job and now I badly wanted to go to office where I can see some actual people and talk to them when there is a break, when I need a coffee or even If I am frustrated for any xyz reason.

Seems like a dream that we used to go to office, getting ready was a fun thing to do for most of us, most of my days I used to think what should I wear today?

But now there are pajamas and t-shirt is what I am usually wearing for work; more or more some shirt on the virtual meeting days!

Now I understand why is it so important to go out for work and then coming back home is a joyous thing, why meeting people is so important; because every individual comes from different aspects of life and they have a story to tell or maybe something to share; from food to stress. And you always learn from others.

We all are interdependent here and we cannot work for forever from our home, there is a balance we all need from our work life and from our home and families.

I am looking forward to go back to my office and meet my friends over there; and I guess god is reading my every word and back there he is planning a super surprise for me and you.

So start your countdown and get ready to go back to your sunny places I will see you soon with another blog.

Love
