11 Questions From Sherri: 

1) How long did you think about starting a blog before you actually did it?

For a while I was thinking of keeping track of all the random things I really enjoy doing and the random thoughts that came to my mind. I heard about blogs and thought it was great.
It took me a while to put 2 and 2 together and to realize that if I combine these two things, my problem will be solved :P.  I finally did it few months ago.

Catching that Feeling.. !!

Have you ever wondered.. what’s that feeling..?? This feeling I can’t put into words.. but was nicely said by A. A. Miline.. See for yourself..? I think its anticipation.. What do you think..??

Well,” said Pooh,¬†“what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called. ~A.A. Milne

Anticipation..?!? or what do u think..???

Less is More .. !! (Random Lessons)

It was one of those days .. After work I was really tired and my knee was killing me… Everything seemed a bit irritating and I was getting impatient.. the fact that I was stuck in a doctor’s clinic waiting room did anything but improve my mood. I tried reading the boring pamphlets but the long paragraphs felt like blobs of blahh….. As minutes turned to an hour I was starting to lose it.. I didn’t hear the usual voice in the back of my head telling me to calm down..!!

So… I got up and walked towards the receptionist…. just wanting to vent it out.. Then bam…..!!! This was up on the wall by the reception….. So I smiled at her instead…and said “looks like it’s a busy day ” !! She smiled back and said “you are the next one in line” ūüôā

I’m glad I didn’t say anything.. It turned out not so bad after all..!!

Some times all you need is that one word or the friendly smile to get a break from your usual day today struggles..This did it for me (so yeah I did take a photo when the receptionist wasn’t looking :P).. Hope it will help someone else too.. !! Sometimes doing less does more than it seems.

Being Grateful …. (this is my start….!!)

Have you ever wondered if only you had that one thing..?? wouldn’t life be perfect..??

Up until today I have wanted a lot of things.. I might have even achieved them.. but the wait was the ¬†worst. While you wait you often wonder how great things will be and how lucky are the people who have it already. But years go by, and some of those things that gave you grief and sleepless nights have now vanished into thin air..you have to take a minute to think did I really get there. Well you might have, that is possibly why you have forgotten it “Grass is always greener on the other side”.

Poems are written, movies are made and songs are sung about the pain of waiting much rather than the joy of achieving. This probably explains how badly we all wanted what we don’t have. Wanting something better is always good but it takes away from the joy of what you already have.

So bloggers.. lets take this time to be grateful for all the things you have, than spend another day, another hour waiting for the things you will most likely achieve in the future. Lets put a stop to this trap called worrying and be happy with who you are right now at this very minute.

What if..???

A wise lady once told me.. ” if you want to write something good you start with an empty page..” So here I am with an empty blog screen.. waiting for something to come to me..

While I’m waiting my mind wanders.. and suddenly I’m thinking “I wonder what will others think.. if they saw me staring at this page.. waiting.. !?”
I wonder if they think I’m stupid.. ¬†if they think I’m just wasting my time.. or I should go do something else .. But I really want to write.. !!

Now I’m debating in my head.. should I write or should I not.. because what will others say.. !?!
Does it really matter what they say or should I just stick to what I want. Am I making the right decision or just wasting my time.. ??

So what if they thought I am a loser.. does that really make me one..?
So what if others say I’m not good enough.. do I stop wanting to write.. ?

What makes me good enough ? is it  the labels that others put on me or is it what I really feel inside.. ?
I know what makes me feel good I know I should write.. but what if no one likes what I write.. should I really care about that..?

So I Decided to Have a Crack at it…… (Color Your Season??) :P

So now that I have started blogging again I get to read loads of blog posts. Some are mind blowing and I’m amazed by how good people can write. ¬†Lately I started reading some poem blogs and decided to have a crack at it. ¬†Here is what I came up with.. its called “Color¬†Your Season”. It may sound like a kid wrote it.. but oh well.. here it goes.. ūüėõ

Please give me your comments and suggestions as I¬†truly¬†believe that all my fellow bloggers out there can give me all the inspiration, encouragement and guidance that I need. ¬†ūüėÄ

I have a color for each season..

where I live its the Winter now .. things tend to feel so¬†grey…. !!

But sometimes Winter likes to play games with your mind.. some days are unusually warm.. no way..!!

Like yesterday it was 10 degrees C… despite the huge snow banks you see

for a minute you do believe its the start of Spring..!!

Can’t wait for the grey to be over.. I want my¬†green¬†–¬†spring and ¬†yellow¬†–¬†summer and¬†orange¬†–¬†fall to come..!!
