hopelessly in love...

wait for it....

in love....with bookmarking everything that comes across the laptop screen. "I will do this later thought" automatically makes me hit the bookmark tab. its easy. YES. And regretfully it has turned me into a lazy goon. What is there that i havent bookmarked? Everything ranging from news sites to baking recipes to various blogs to language sties to photography and travel sites. You name it and i would have it bookmarked ! *sigh*

The easy tool of bookmarking has added to my laid back attitude and made me hopeless! Over a year or more i have collected many many and many websites with a single click and now i have no idea how i am going to go back and browse them. I think it will last me my lifetime.

This is not the end to always bookmarking habit. I have been on my butt for longer than it is good for me. I need some serious suggestions from you guys. I want to get rid of this never ending laziness. Is there any hope for me to kick out the bookmarking everything habit and drive laziness to its home?  The scary pile of small 'to do lists' is glaring up at me from the coffee table. Before I sink back into my bean bag and dose off please suggest how can I get rid of my current problem and get my pending work done?

lemons, clouds, ya ya

I think my reflections on life now and then are an extension of my once upon a time series of 'life and life backwards'. life gives you lemons and you have got to make some drink out of it and then dont throw away the squeezed lemon skin. you can even make use of that by grinding it into powder form and then mix it with a couple of other ingredients to use it as a face pack. voila !

However, i m not here to give away beauty tips for natural glowing face ( though i m saving the used lemon skins). there are more examples of optimistic approach to life phrases. for example there is 'every cloud has a silver lining'. life has a lot of lemons to roll your way. I have accepted it but its hard for me to come to terms with it. every time i m confronted with a situation that demands me to make lemonades or look for the silver lining in the clouds above, i just let the lemons roll away and the clouds sail away to some other destination.

It is usually after the lemons are gone and the clouds are far away that i realise there goes another chance for me to do something.

Doing the best with what life gives you is the key. the key is to keep living. the key is to never stop or lose hope. it is an indication that life holds many surprises for you. maybe that there are still many chances and opportunities to benefit from. Provided that you keep on your emotions intact and brain in use and most importantly use the lemons before they go rotten. if they do, toss them back !  or even better...

i say

I am finding it hard to regularly post on my blog. since 2007, the first time i began blogging, i have fallen in love with the world of blogging. i dont know how promising a future this might hold in the world of internet but i do know that i will always cherish reading and writing blogs. without further ado, i would say what i intended to in this blog post. I thank all my followers and readers for reading and visiting my blog. it means a lot to me :)

life as we know it

What is life? YES i am asking this question AGAIN. what happened to my life and life backwards posts? i thought i would make frequent posts for that one. Life is HUGE and so much keeps happening how come i hardly came back to the enigmatic topic called l.i.f.e. i think i was way too stuck up with it, busy trying to get myself out of the inevitable mess that is bound to take you by surprise. speaking of life, mine is quite uneventful. in other words, more on the predictable side. MORE like a butter on a slice of toasted bread. Even better, melting butter in a baking pan inside an oven and I outside like a watchdog, hand mittens on, admiring the process, looking at the cake rising up, up and up...

There are bound to be maybes in life. a lot of what ifs. life comes with a big bundle of strings attached.
Unconscious mistakes and conscious mistakes. we want to make them. we want to know them firsthand. there is some guilty pleasure in the desire to make mistakes anyway. We are stopped, guided and told how not to make a mistake.

The cake, rising up...

What if i let it burn. yes, that would be stupid of me, wasting butter and eggs and gas and time and money on something i could have made right. but why is it important to make it right every time? it happens. when you are extra careful with baking. it goes wrong. mistake. you make a mistake somewhere during the process that the cake that eventually comes out of the oven doesnt taste right. its burnt a bit, sticks badly to the pan when you take it out, the slices dont go perfect size. in the end you are in a 'maybe' state. maybe the batter was too thin or maybe its too sweet, or maybe i took it out too soon so its sticking badly. a mistake's been made somewhere...

Life, however, is no cake. It is more than just that. It is affordable to go wrong with a cake but there is no room for going wrong in life. As is said life has no delete buttons, no choice of erasing out a mistake or throwing away 'the cake that went wrong'.

The mistake big or small, stays with you. Like a backup plan, like an extra torch to switch on when its dark. Not to relieve you but to haunt  you.

It is not abyss. Life is sunshine and rain both. It is pleasure and pain together. A period of 24 hours has both day and night. Some mistakes leave scar others just leave you laughing at yourself. Why hold back in fear of making mistakes that we will regret for our lives. Why not just take a plunge and see it for ourselves. Why wait for others and stand on a safe harbour. If life comes with strings attached, good or bad, we should be ready to embrace them.
