I Indulge in….

Standard

Where did I vanish?
Well, I haven’t been doing anything exciting other than mundane chores one is expected to do…and work has been very hectic off late and I was not really in a mood to blog…..hence the absence….though I was reading all your wonderful blogs and satiating my hunger…there are very few things which give a high, higher compared to reading a well written post.
Offlate I had been day dreaming about block-printing ( my other love), my gray matter is assembling patterns,meditating color-combinations, fashioning designs whenever it gets a break…its been a while since I printed anything….during my next trip to Hyderabad I have decided what to buy; more colors and other stuff for printing….can’t wait for it….this nostalgia made me post these pictures…I printed these a while ago and now they are prettily converted into tops,stoles and Kurti’s..these are just a few random clicks from my mobile….I do not have pictures of all my printed stuff……..

“I Love Me”

Standard

Blog hopping is therapeutic. I keep reiterating that writing is therapeutic for me and puts me on a high like nothing else…but off late  I have been indulging myself in aimless blog hopping and am relishing it to the hilt. I hop from blog to blog and have been  reading great stuff , writings from people whom I have never met nor will ever meet but people whose personality comes shining through via their scribblings….and in this hopping voyage I came across many a people who are in the same boat like me ; who are dauntlessly fighting the battle of bulge and who support one another without knowing each other…….. Internet does make the world a smaller place….and by reading them it brings me the much needed solace….the assurance that I amn’t the only one fighing it out in this big bad world.

During one such outings I landed at Krissie’s space and read this marvelous post . I completely concur with you Krissie…we harm ourselves the most….by being unnecessarily cynical and negative….I felt cheery and very positive after reading your post and am doing it here ……

1. What do you absolutely love about your body?

     Eyes !

2. When did you surprise yourself with your physical strength?

     When I  bycycled 15 kms up and down a hill, bought groceries, hit the gym for an hour,came back home and cooked dinner and still felt very energetic…so energetic that I could repeat the whole day ….It might not seem a big deal but when I went through this routine for the first time I really surprised myself and needless to say was very joyful. Simple pleasures of life 🙂

3. When were you braver than you ever thought you could be?

During my innumerable junket’s to many countries in Europe especially those small towns ….I really felt brave…never imagined that I could pull it off so boldly…

4. When did your self-control blow you away?

When I walked into a bakery which had an array of delectable and luscious sinners on display and I didn’t succumb to their charms….not even one bit….and rather stepped out gloriously holding the coffee for which I went for. I quite liked myself… 🙂

5. What is your proudest moment ever?

When S and I got married. And I feel extremely proud whenever S compliments me, even for those little things…

6. When was the last time you felt absolutely beautiful?

Yesterday ( after many many many months) I was on top of the world….all credit to my hairdresser for making me look so glamorous.

7. Why do you deserve to meet your goals?

Since I started working towards them and am working real hard for them…

Am feeling on top of the world doing this post….all you guys reading this….this is a must try. Kudos to Krissie.
