When you say “thank you “the universe does give you more of the same .Life gives us all chances and choices ,what we do,with these chances and what we choose makes a lot of difference.
My joys have been a result of difficult choices.
Deciding to study in Delhi was difficult. I had never lived away from home.But that experience helped me learn what I was capable of .Including midnight madness.Coping with peer pressure and homesickness can be potent.
That choice helped me realize my strengths. The joy of being independent and learning how to choose friends wisely .
I love being married .The joys of married life make a lot of troubles disappear.My hubby is my best friend and my favourite sounding board for my 2pm ideas.It helps that he has oodles of patience and the kindest person I know.He once told me
“If you can’t say something nice it’s always better to keep quiet.”
So simple to avoid trouble and unpleasantness. So difficult to learn.
Being a mommy
My daughter is a darling .She makes me enjoy all things creative with her .Revisiting childhood with her makes life better.Motherhood is a joy and source of all my creativity.
Love of nature
I love gardening and the joy of staring at a bud or a freshly bloomed rose is ummatched. I just love spending time surrounded by nature.The medical college and hospital where we work had few trees and plants. But the authorities are taking care to give the grounds a green cover.It’s a pleasure seeing the saplings everywhere. Studies prove that hospital rooms with green views have patients recover more quickly .Mental health plays a large role in physical recovery.
I rarely vacation any place without nature around. At least the resort should have green cover .Concrete jungles make me bored after a few hours.I am thankful that God takes care of my love for nature at home and when I travel.
Once you take care to travel healthy ,your adventures will always leave you happy and rested. .
For the joy of finding pleasure in words.
Reading and writing :
What can I say, I survived med school ,because I used to promise myself limitless library visits, after exams were over.Kolkata has an Eloor Library close to Ballygunge station.We are still members and I love visiting this place to pick up old favourites and find new loves.
Love for writing & Blog love.
I feel writing has been on my friend list, but lost in kumbh mela, reunited again magically .After class twelve ,medical school had enough going on for me to have no time for any recreational writing.
I started writing when I realized that information can help create awareness. It helps me spead preventive health care at zero cost to the people I want to help, without tearing my hair over it.Repeating the same thing over and over again made me want to have a place to store all this information. Someday hopefully , someone will be helped.
My happy time includes family books ,nature ,access to my blog and opportunity to travel.
Dream in life: Financial freedom to do all this for life.
Aim in life :To help women who travel with me find this road .
What are your small joys ?
