This and That

I know this blog’s feeling quite neglected, but I’ve been doing a bit of living for a change. πŸ™‚

Life is full of surprises. Like when I realized that I was actually happier working alone; for too many years, I was under the mistaken impression that I was a “people person”. Or how I strongly believed till very recently that I could never go by without (serious) reading or writing. It’s been months now since I’ve done either, and I’m not missing it much. I guess we keep re-inventing ourselves as we go along. Nowadays, I can honestly say that I live pretty much in the moment. I am grateful for the family and friends I have, for every blessing I’ve ever received, and I’m learning to let go more and more.

So when I read other blogs, or interact with other people, I am sometimes a little taken aback by how strong the emotions are, and how the quest for absolutes sucks the meaning out of everything. (I’m not even sure I know what I’m saying here, but bear with me :D). It kind of wears me out!

Well, anyways, here is the most profound thought I’ve had in weeks. πŸ˜‰

Why does a woman who cannot step out of her home without compact, eyeliner, lipstick, and gloss refer to herself as a “makeup virgin”? I don’t use three out of four, so what am I? Should I just take an enlightening Facebook quiz instead? πŸ™‚

  1. (guess) I have a fair idea of what you mean there..

    It’s like the guy in “The Unbearable Lightness Of Being” who goes from being a competant Doctor to a window pane cleaner .. & feeling equally (or perhaps more) satisfied in the new profession !

    Enjoy the lightness πŸ™‚
