Happily Unpredictable

I apologize for not able to write anything for more than a week and surely that requires an explanation to all my readers. The reason behind the absence was an unplanned tour. I have been a bit of disciplined person (though I can not promise that in case of my wardrobe) .Otherwise I at least ensure to keep myself in position to face any situation. In that case I suppose I was brought up with the ideology that success is synonymous to discipline. (Can we say it a Genetic Ideology??)

Anyways before the last week I visited my close friend who was sick due to stress .I found myself advising her to take a break and have a nice tour?

While returning back to my place I questioned myself that why on earth I advice her that stuff? Is that something in my subconscious mind? Or am I trying to fulfill my wish? ……………………….

The next day I woke up early in the morning went to buy two tickets (a surprise for my fiancée) for the next day, packed my bag and went straight to my fiancée. ……

I know it was shocking for him to hear my plans but I was pretty sure, he was excited as well. And may be his spontaneous happiness induced a special joy in me. I am glad that I tried to explore the world of “un-planned” …….

The next part is all about exploring the unknown places and feeling the essence ……we traveled a lot but never did I feel tired. We ate like gluttons and slept peacefully……I think happiness in seeing some unseen feels this way……..

Unpredictability has its own attraction and vigor apart from excitement, I realized. Never before I knew that an aimless walk can be such a fun, foods at roadside so tasty and traveling in a cart car so exciting……….

I wish I had been “unpredictable” earlier……But then ‘better late than never’

NB: - I will soon post the snaps in my photo blog …..Till then I wish all of you unpredictable happiness

Weekends Are Over-But Not The Fun

So the fun is over? Facing the “Monday blues”? I have developed ways where I found it useful to deal with these stress factors of weekdays.
I will be happy enough to share my crazy but useful (I hope) table.
I have divided each day with an aim and a zeal to live the day fullest.

Monday: - It’s a running evening for me. I run till I get exhausted and I really feel good after the heavy run. The every drop of sweat has its own relaxation I think……
And after a days work I think it’s a good way …to feel nature and a cool breeze. I wait Monday evening for the …relaxing walk.

Tuesday: - it’s an evening with my family. As I stay away from them …I talk to them .listen them and try giving them the time for it…may be I try to balance out between family and profession…but it works for sure.

Wednesday: - the day starts with a good meditation .In the evening I go out for a shopping with my fiancée and not a costly one .sometime buying me a chocolate do wonders (oh!! I let out my secret).strolling aimlessly with him gives me sense of freedom …freedom from stress and noise.

Thursday:-well only one more day to go excites me enough .I bring home a good book to read…the one I never managed to finish.
And while I read the book …I feel complete, a sense that completing a good book can only provide.

Friday:-The last day of weekdays…and I review myself …..I dedicate my evening with some good social work. May be, either helping someone in need or hearing someone who needs some support… evening dedicated to “humanity” of course.

Saturday and Sunday ……..time to add spice in your very own ways

I wish all my readers a very happy “WEEKDAYS”

EMI of Happiness

I call it ‘SMILE’. You must be wondering why not ‘LAUGHING’?

Well in that case I want to share my opinion. I think laughing is not connected with inner joy; it’s more superficial rather .Whereas smile is associated with real happiness of heart.

Let me give an example. Yesterday there was a huge conference and quite a lengthy one. I managed to stay attentive for couple of hours but then my mind started wandering in some far away lands of Ulysses (may be I was reading the poetry the night before).

I was woken by a thud of laughter in the conference room. Something the orator said provoked the laughter in all. (Am sorry I can not really share with you all since I did not hear it myself).
I don’t know but I joined the laughter very stupidly, I admit.
Somehow I manage to ask my fellow colleague the reason behind.

To my surprise he said he did not hear it and was laughing so that others may not identify him as inattentive. I was really amused and I ‘smiled’.
I discovered how the meaning is different though it is suppose to show the same feeling.

I realized how we are making fool of ourselves; how our inner conscious part mock at our foolish endeavor to prove ourselves smart.

In our life many time we smiled,which really touched our heart and we can remember most of them .But can we recollect a happy instance where we have laughed? I think a person can laugh thousand times a day but smile only occasionally.

I realized; to smile I don’t need promotion, neither a trip to Switzerland. A small dew drop at the edge of grass can make me smile. The little underprivileged children playing with dust can make me smile, watching the sunset in my roof can make me smile…………..

And I don’t think there is any sort of “smile club”?
But I know one thing; one can smile if he wants to .Only requirement is: give mind the time to wander, to feel, to listen and to relish the very ordinary life with extraordinary beauty in it.
The sincere effort needed is to open the locks of seriousness, responsibility and other for a while and free the mind, let it enjoy the breeze and lilies of moments……….

I understand this small smile may not be spectacular but effective enough to be happy and light from inside; to savor the wonderful life we are grant to and sometime to make some one else happy…………

And by the way who do not want to be happy?
That’s why may be it is said, “Smile is the only curve that set things right”

Keep smiling !!!!
