Small things in life!!!

Now a days I have been obsessed with small things in life and being thankful for them...When the thread of routine starts to weave its suite around you ...it tends to get a little alarming and scary at times.

And do you know when it gets even worse?

You remember about the times when  (not) reading about stress/work-life balance/budgeting/healthy living etc would make you think .."hey tats for the grown-ups...I  don need to worry about that...now which movie can I watch this week with my friends" ? and remember how before you know it ,the (not) is gone n you actually do the reading and the thinking becomes "Damn!! I need to learn to do that...n get more organised"

 ...Tats when!!

So I decided to follow the saying of some wise dude that said " Live each day for tat day and before you know it the year will be done" or some such thing..Also "Awkward and Awesome" Thursday posts by Sydney in her blog-The Daybook" has been a very nice inspiration for me.

How long will this lil bug last? I have no idea...But I am glad it has caught on and I shall embrace it one day at a time...for as long as it last..:)
So the moments that I am thankful for this weekend:
1) Walking around my house and spotting an old grandfather playing hop scotch with his granddaughter who was busy explaining all the rules of the game.
2) Watching two little guys run around as close as they could just to escape  my cousin  who kept trying to catch them and their happy/naughty smiles when they would get away.
4) Watching my cute lil 8 month old niece and nephew giggle as they were made to pretend kick at his aunts...
5) Eating mangoes-a LOT of mangoes.
6) Proving again (only to myself) that I perform best when not under pressure...n just because I didnt do well once doesn't mean I cant do better the next time...( Well how did I come to that conclusion you ask? I played shuttle...n I suck at it while playing a match but am ok (not good...ok ...n yes tat is better than suck) while just playing without the whole tension of match n scores.)
7) Watching a small cute lil bug scuttle across the screen as I write this post.
8) Finally getting my Degree Certificate as the final official step towards becoming a BE grad a a full time engineer!!
9) Today being a day before I start a formal diet,When I decide to go all out and eat everything that is a fav and a strict no-no once I start dieting...(well I am in the phase in btw two dieting periods...so it was nice to eat ice cream after like two months...again now its time to say good bye to icecream for next 3 month )
10) Adding a 10th point just cause I wanned to seem like I reached an official number which counts...cause duh!! everyone knows 10 is soo much more official n nicer than 9)

Yippee-di-doo for the happy moments!! :)

  2. *Adding a 10th point just cause I wanned to seem like I reached an official number which counts...cause duh!! everyone knows 10 is soo much more official n nicer than 9)*

    --Did you notice you have missed 3). So it's still 9 points only :D

  3. @aneesh: oops!! I guess u r right!! :( never mind...hope no1 else notices!! :)

  4. haha...now no one can help, but notice it all the more :)

    Btw, you have a nice blog, and some of the posts are really creative--esp the ones on experimenting with photography, art stuff etc.
    Perhaps, the subjects that u choose--those that are not easily noticed otherwise, make the photos unique.

    and the animation(which is the show-stealer on ur blog) and a convenient layout(which is presume is due to ur software engg skills?) are attractive too!

    i stumbled upon ur blog thru a common follower(of my blog and urs.) Cool blog..Keep it up!
