Jan 30, Friday: Weekly Achievements

1. A couple of good public engagements- almost as if I were branding myself to some extent but hey, I am trying to step out of my comfort zone so…
2. Catching up with good friends, old friends and the type of friends I want in my life- those who appreciate me and those I appreciate
3. A massive headway in the work sphere- exciting, exciting.

Now for a month off from blogging- I may still put up the odd post but I intend to publish my next post in March now- stay healthy all, remember to be happy and keep loving yourselves and those around you.

Much peace and joy to all,
Joy.

1. Didn’t reach out to Tigger even when I saw something I knew she’s appreciate loads and therefore, reaffirming my self respect to self. (Also proud of myself for not discussing the issue with others last week when it came up in conversation- I just left it at a misunderstanding and that’s it!)
2. Did a fairly decent plan for 2015, needs tweaking but is well started.
3. Ate really well and exercised too. Much needed after all the festive indulgences!

1. Broken my clean living diet every single day without feeling guilty- I have eaten more chocolate, crisps, processed food than I should but I have enjoyed it.
2. Despite not having the funds, stretched myself to spend more than I should have at a charity event last night and walked away with a sense of faith than a sense of foreboding.
3. May have, just may have, struck a business deal the way I wanted to! Time shall tell… the ball is rolling.

1. Spending time at home with my housemates and just chilling- great to be able to do that; baking and catching with the friends I genuinely wanted to
2. Not completely losing my temper with a friend who jumped to conclusions because another friend jumped to conclusions- some people automatically think the worst and their lack of ability to discuss it out and clean the air truly makes me want to kick their backside.
And not completely losing my temper at another friend who thinks working from home means being able to do all the restaurant bookings etc- if I say I am  busy, I am busy!
3. A massive realisation about my business skills, my current state about a previous company I used to very closely involved in and how I have grown.

India/ Pak Independence Days

Aug 14, Letter

Dear Matryoshka,

When I first met, I was excited about what you meant for my friend but the more I got to know you, the less I cared for you. The more we talked, the less I respected you. The more I saw your actions, the less I gave a damn. I do thank you for being a part of my life and teaching me how much I can pity someone. I do thank you for being a part of my life and teaching me the true meaning of manipulation and reminding me why my cynicism is actually a good thing. I do thank you for teaching me the power of confidence, security and love. And I thank you most for disliking me the way you do cos it means I am spared of being in your destructive path. Please go get counselling before it is too late and you lose the bit in you that actually means well!

Thank you- I love you, I forgive you and I am sorry.

Go in peace,
Joy.

1. Spent a lot of time walking, playing, hanging out with a dog
2. Had a great time with my new housemates

Aug 4, Monday: Gratitude:

Youth
How I miss those days- we take it for granted but I am certainly beginning to feel the changes and am definitely older. With it comes wisdom, the ability to not drink as much, the post party fatigue but I have to be grateful for the youth I have enjoyed and for the fun I still enjoy when I behave more youthful than I should.

Dogs
You gotta love these furry creatures. They love you in ways that one cannot even imagine! They are awesome.

Ability to forgive
Being compassionate is not always easy, being able to forgive even less so and I am glad that I find it easy to forgive people in order to move on!

Catching up with June!

So the last week just took me by surprise and it was tough in a lot of ways, so here goes the ones I have missed out on:

June 23: Gratitude:

– Sunshine: A weekend in the sun, longest day of the year, loads of friends, great music, fantastic memories- all made extra special because of the beautiful weather.
– Ability to drive: After having to drive back from the music festival, I am glad I could- having to spend an extra night there would not have been fun!
– Shower: Nothing like a good clean shower after a weekend of camping and fun!

June 24: Moment:

The first time I went looking for an apartment, I was clueless as to what I should be looking for- eventually found something, nice size etc and realised that the girl I lived with was amazing and I had struck lucky till she had to  move out… as I look back, I have had some odd moments all right, some weird stories but all in all, I have been really lucky and I hope as I go looking to share for potentially the last time, I am really excited about the prospect of meeting someone new, making a new friendship and creating a new atmosphere and environment around me!

June 26: Letter:

Dear Mum’s Youngest Sister,

You have often been the one I have compared to most- thank you for our advice, thank you for your pragmatism, thank you for your love, thank you for the inspiration you have provided and thank you for the shoes!

I love you loads and I miss you loads- wish I could be there through these times.

Love,
Joy.

June 27: Weekly Achievements:

– Packing up completed
– In the news in 2 different countries
– Taking some time to remind myself how lucky I am over a nice bath and a glass of bubbles!

June 30: Gratitude:

– Good Times: Water skiing, donuting, BBQs, drink with Red’s granny, all make for good times! Great weekend makes for a great start to the week
– Sense of Humour: SO much went wrong over the past while but a sense of humour has really been awesome
– R&R: Booked myself a spa day and also had lie-ins, sleep-ins, chilling in the sun and all the things that make for a nice R&R (even if the body aches now!)

Jan 27 Monday: Gratitude

Catch up on Jan 24 achievements:
– Managed to meet most people I wanted to before I flew out
– Packed everything in time with all the shopping I had to do
– Bagged 2 deals I hadn’t completely

Food
Today I cooked a massive meal for some of my Indian friends despite all the issues of not knowing kithcen, not having everything, improvising etc etc etc and it was fantabulous- I especially loved my fudge brownie- gorgeous as it could be!

Smarts
At the end of the day, nothing is more exciting than using your brain. Over the past few days, I have really had to optimise on certain areas and it has been handy to have a sharp brain!

Sun
Nothing, nothing, nothing more glorious than a glass of bubbly in the sun with good friends around you!

Jan 5- Last Week

Monday, Dec 30- Gratitude:

– Gifts- I chose them well and I made people happy, I think
– My own bed- Nothing like a few nights in one’s own bed
– Happiness- never to be taken for granted!

Tuesday, Dec 31- A Beautiful Moment

Undoubtedly, drinking on the Pondicherry promenade from juice bottles and enjoying the fresh breeze and the fab moment of peace and pure, unadulterated fun!

Wednesday, Jan 1- The Future

The things I want to achieve this year come down to health, love, a better residence and business.

Thursday, Jan 2- Letter

To My Paternal Granny

I saw your pics at my cousin’s wedding recently and I realised how time has gone by- you have changed, you are now much older than I recall and yet, there is a certain inner peace about you- it is good, it is nice to see you happy. Many of my memories of you are just surviving while you moved from one son to another but since you moved on your own, you are happy and I hope everyone finds such peace and happiness in their lives, despite all the obstacles. In your own way, you taught me independence, the need to enjoy the odd sugar parantha with cream, the acceptance of a changed world and the need to constantly keep adapting. I see you rarely, I speak to you less than I should but in no way does this mean I love or respect any less. Thank you for being the influence that you are.

Love,
Joy.

Dec 29- Jumbo Post for Last Week

Dec 23: Gratitude:

– Savings- I managed to spend loads and save the aimed amount
– Love- tis the season
– Liver- read above

Dec 24: Moment:

My first Christmases- in India, in school, in Ireland, hosting, with Snoopy, with Ryan’s family, with friends at Ryan’s family and now added in, Red’s

Dec 26: Letter– read post below 😉

Dec 27: Week Gone By:

– Survived Christmas- think my presents went well and I was definitely spoilt by the ones I got!
– Got comfortable in Red’s family home to an extent where I didn’t constantly feel the need to be on guard.
– Got some major deadlines met despite all the obstacles!

Rant:

This article written by Brad Pitt really irked me- no woman is a reflection of her man- yes, her man and any other person in her life can affect her love and self confidence but herself is not a reflection of him but of how he may make her feel! At the end of the day, each person is an individual and so it should remain!!! Any one who thinks their happiness is dependent on another person, get a grip and anyone who thinks they hold the key to someone else’s happiness, come back down to earth- we are all responsible for our own happiness, we give others the power to make us happy- they don’t have it automatically!
