I am a tired soul today. My head hurts, my eyes are drousy, my legs ache. I havent had the best of days as far as work is concerned and to top it all, I had the misfortune of watching Himesh Reshamiyan sporting a deadly gay look with an absolutely psychotic hair style while baring his insanely waxed chest on Z TV. This was just the perfect setting for me to whine about my life and what a drag it is and how work sucks and I am sure I would have got enough sympathetic looks starting with my mom who actually thinks I am suffering. Instead I have chosen to sit down and write about the simple pleasures of life. Things that make me smile, things that are absolutely indispensable for me. So, here it comes....

1. Sleeping on a hot humid nite and waking up to an absolutely cloudy morning (oh, i love it).

2. Spending a saturday doing nothing

3. Rolling down the car window to smell jasmine and knowing winters are just round the corner.

4. Watching back to back episodes of SATC and F.R.I.E.N.D.S after having watched them a zillion times already.

5. Reading Calvin & Hobbes over and over again

6. Meeting friends at a CAFE and that too not for a cup of coffee.

7. Remembering a song/name/place/incident which a few seconds ago I had gone completely blank on.

8. Laughing out so loud that my eyes start to water.

9. Managing to reach the loo when I am almost about to pee in my pants

10. Knowing how amazing my friends are and being sure that they will always be a part of me.

There are a zillion other things that I love doing but I wont go on. The point is that we get so absorbed by the wrongs around us that we forget to see the rights. So lets try and remember the small but important details that make us happy even if life gets really hectic because the truth is that nobody has ever been able to better their life hating it.

I really like this post!:)
I did something similar long back..things that make me happy..which don't involve giving n taking or spending and earning!:)

I think it's so important to remember that there are such small things that can make our day bright!! And in the long run, it is actually the presence or absence of these things that really matters!!

What the FUCK...where is FAMILY???

self pity never helped anyone dear ... this is almost like a plague ... we come to work and then land up cribbing about our lives ... wishing things would be better ... but not really trying to make it better ... im glad u look for the small things in life that bring a smile to your face cause these are the things that keep us going on and on day in and day out ...
Rock on ruchika and keep smiling cause thats the way the world like to see you .

Aah, the simple pleasures of life..ones we'll keep only dreaming of in advertising>
