Happy New Year 2014

Happy  New Year  every one,  on this second day  of 2014. I  felt the need to  start writing again.

2013 has been  a difficult  year. If I  look  back,  I  think  it  has taught  me a lot  of things. I  think  I  am  little wiser than  what  I was a year  ago. Have seen  a lot  of ups and downs. So  many  new relations and some old ones have faded away,  but I  have learned some thing  from each  and everyone. Just  because of all  these I  think  I  am more stronger  now. Still  very  emotional,  I  still like to  think  from  my  heart  not  from  my  brain.

Lost  my  dad early  last  year January  reminds me of him. He was a happy  man  was never  sad,  always looked at  life positively. Every  time I  think  of him I  see his smile. That's the reason I  think  I  should cherish  these thoughts and be happy  for him. I  hope he is in a better place now.

Well this blog  is about  "Sahelies"   Girlfriends
Every  time I  look  at  all  of my  friends they  are unique. Some I  would like them  to  stay  same always and some I  hope they  change for better. Its hard to  stay  quite some times and not  to  cross any  lines. Its hard to  decide to  intervene or  not. If  it is my  place to  say  some thing  or not. I  cannot  make decisions for people. Everyone has to  make their own  mistakes and learn  from  them. RIGHT even me I  have to  do  my  share of learning.

2014 I  want  to  be a better person. I  m  going  to  try  to  stop  Judging  people (cannot  promise)

Baby Shower in USA

Went to a baby shower today and then realized ... its so nice .. we are all here with not much family  and with very less knowledge of traditions ... still we all try to support each other some times just make our own traditions dosent matter which part of India we belong to, just trying  to celebrate every little reason we can find.

Hindi-Bindi Club

This was the last book I read and really enjoyed ... its a novel with recipes. I will recommend this book and its such nicely written about mothers and daughters doesn't matter if  u are Indian or not  .. three generations  Indian-Immigrant-American. Since we are Immigrants neither Indian nor American... some where in the middle. Just to be on the lighter side some one once said we are so very Indians and miss India so much but in US and as soon as we reach India we are so very Americans. lol

If you are confident you are beautiful

Hi everyone we are all human and have flaws. Even if your physical appearance, unique personality or social skills aren't what we wish they were, that doesn't have to stop you from being confident. Confidence translated literally from Latin means "to have faith in oneself". You are beautiful inside and out so you should love yourself unconditionally. Lets see how everyone likes to believe in themselves. Everyone might have a way of making themselves feel special... if not lets find a ways to pamper ourselves mentally and emotionally. I will encourage everyone to say something even if its a one liner or a song that gives gives you high spirits.
