TONE DOWN…

This could mean several things . But in this instance I mean tone down ones expectations. Age certainly has helped me  tone down the lofty expectations I had, but they have never fully disappeared…

It is one of those things that is like a heavy baggage that one carries around all the time.If we allow expectations to determine the happiness we feel in regards to a certain situation, the chances that we will be satisfied are slim.

In all reality, if things always happened the way we hoped or expected, life would be utterly predictable and completely unexciting. The possibilities in life are endless, but if we are resistant to letting life unfold as it is meant to, we tend to paint unexpected occurrences in a negative light…..

Let go !!!!!  Holding on  to expectations goes against life’s flow. It makes reality unbearable when it doesn’t need to be…

Managing ones expectations is key to happiness.

Why is the color blue associated with sadness ????

Blue though is my favorite color. To me it represents peace and tranquility. My wardrobe is filled with variations of blue for both western and Indian outfits.

I’ve always wondered though why people use the term “feeling blue” when they are sad.My take on it  :

“Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.” — Allen Klein

SAD :(

On some days this is how I feel……

Especially in winter. Am I suffering from SAD ? Also I have noticed that loneliness brings out the creativity within me.But why is it so hard to discuss such things with even the closest to you??? Only happiness and cheer is shareable.The so called friends become silent and distant.

Well at least it gets me to focus on things that I love and every silent moment is a revelation of my true self.
