Counting blessings is a great habit.
This month has been wonderful.
I attended four picnics.One on each Sunday.
I visited this amazing place near Indo-Bangladesh border at Tilason.I wrote about it here.
I realized I feel the happiest when I am surrounded by nature ,have no food worries and see my baby and hubby playing .
I felt really blessed that my work place is a 5 minute walk away.I feel even more blessed that God gave me the option of spending so much time with my daughter.
Watching a baby grow up is the biggest joy a mom can have!
Bringing up another human being a future citizen of this country is serious work.
I have been able to stop my constant worry cycles by a simple trick.I jump on the treadmill and run .Even 3 minutes of this makes me sweat so much my worries go zip zap zoom.
I really want to colour my hair .But since I have zero option of a beauty parlour ,I have to brave it out at home.I am praying it will work out fine and I won’t have to take a month’s leave .
I bought the Tools of Titan and my hubby gifted me ten Bengali murder mystery books for my birthday.That was the best day .Buying books and not worrying that I have an exam coming up.
I am trying to plan my meals in advance ,to make grocery shopping more sensible.Yes I know that’s normal and not rocket science.Buy I have problems with questions like “what are you making for dinner tonight “?
It puts me in a spot where I only want to order Pizza !
I had a fight this week with a very irresponsible person .Which reaffirmed my belief that telling people they are irresponsible or plain stupid is never a good idea.
Shouting at them, while telling that ,is even less fruitful.
From February onwards I am going to try to express my irritations in a more constructive way.Yes I hope so !That’s going to be really difficult.
But what’s life if not challenging .
Whenever I cook I feel grateful for my Airfryer which helped us indulge in some great snacks at one-third the calories.
I feel grateful that my balconies and windows receive sun and bloom so prettily.
I feel blessed that I have a best friend as a life partner, who really understands me .
I feel blessed to have a kind,creative,understanding four-year old who is fast becoming my favourite DIY project partner .
She also loves dancing to random songs ,just like me!
I feel blessed that I am able to stop the niggling negative thoughts, successfully on 80% of the days. Sometimes you just need to key of a little steam though !
I decided to stop trying to get along with people who behave badly .It’s just not worth the drama.
Life is too short for spending on nonsense.
What I wrote this week :
What I learned this week :
Life is tough but beautiful. It’s like the rose .It gives you pleasure and pain. The trick is relive the good times and release the bad memories.
The right balance of remember, learning and not feeling the pain of your experiences comes only with time.
Everything heals .Just give it time.
I feel blessed to be able to Blog daily for the last 89 days straight .
What did you do this month?
