To a healthier better me – My birthday resolutions

I am a big big girl, in this big big world, its (any issue) not a big big thing, come on bring it on to me..

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

Yeah , it’s my birthday week . he he he 🙂  I usually celebrate my birthday the whole week. So now that I have stepped on to the second quarter of my life , or to say I am crossing mid twenties/late twenties and rushing towards 30s  but instead of focusing on anti-ageing treatments to disguise my age , I am putting my energies to a very obvious thing that unfortunately I had been ignoring from long time.

Family, friends, long lost friends, colleagues, acquaintances, well wishers, everyone showed their immense love on my birthday. They wished me happiness, prosperity and good health. I have been saying this on my blogs over and over again, but yeh ! I am confessing even I have tendency to walk over it (bad bad girl). I am blessed I always get cooked ready to serve – excuses to put my health not on top priority.

Well, I’ll be honest; it’s not that I’m not capable of committing and following through – anything that I have decided for myself. I don’t bind myself with point to point resolutions, but it’s too easy to slip in my comfort zone crushing my all healthy thinking’s 😦 . I am going to experience a 360 degree turn soon in my life (keep guessing 😉 ) transitions have already started then why not fixing my health status.

Being a woman, I sincerely apologize; I am adding few more vanity (mind, body and soul) changes in my resolution cart.

Here I am  with my resolution cart :

  1. To take good care of my health

a)      Go for 30 min walk or meditation.

I love morning walks. I am sad I am not going for them due to all the stupid reasons I can think of. But from this morning, I am back in action.

b)      Will have proper 3 meals a day.

I am not going to try to have a proper diet, I can’t afford trying. I will do it.

c)      To have 6 hours of sleep a day.

I can see, people who know me smirking (and also those who can see the time of the post). I am an insomniac. This will be a fight but I want to win sleepily , else one day will come when I will be called as zombie . (Currently, they have termed as ghost)

d)     To take my medicines on time.

I am not that ill, that I have to take so many medicines daily. But whatever I need to take (multivitamins, calcium, iron tablets, pain killers etc etc) , I will have them on time. Already, placed a daily alarm.

e)      Start my day with lemon and honey in warm water.

Ya, ya I want to lose those stubborn inches. Do you know how bad it feels , when you have a Van Heusan dress in your wardrobe from last 11 months (price tag freshly enacted) and you try it every Saturday morning , just to say ‘I wish I could look better’ L

2. Do something that I love to.

I love to write. I love to dance. Writing and dancing is being in trance form for me. Need to come over my mood swings –  write/dance. Need to vent out my anger – write/dance. Need to express my happiness – write/dance. I know I am not regularly blogging but tweeting. I am trying to be active on blog again. Coming to dancing, what gratifies me – locked my room, dim lights , loud music dancing in front of mirror , just like that.

3. Crop the cribbings

I do sometimes crib, human tendency please don’t judge me. Thanks. Every day is a new day , every moment is a new moment, every situation is a new situation.. Face them , live them, embrace them. Life is a bed of roses but with some thorns. Once pinched by the thorn tip immediately turn to the softness of roses, don’t stay there and start cribbing the thorn , better to confine into the softness of roses.

4. Keep my wardrobe organized.

Don’t want to waste precious morning minutes in finding what to wear and then iron them , uff , I do need to fix this bad habit.

5. Not to say ‘I am busy’

There was a time, when friends always taunt me because I am always ‘busy’. Credits to last few weeks, I am actually busy (oops I said that , I am sorry).I am not liking this , feeling totally burn out. I am daily struggling to manage my just 24 hour day. The way I am moving with life (can’t dare to say growing with life) I feel I would never be free from schedule madness until I will be comfortable taking responsibility of ‘my time’. No one is going to beat me for declining meetings. Being busy is not cool !

So where does this list will leave me? I believe in results, I am sure I will be sticking to above mentioned resolutions (fingers crossed)

Life is short, though I wish to live 100 years. I want to make this life worth living every moment. No walking away from greatest life episodes. Not to miss any single moment to say thanks /sorry / love you. Do something that I am proud of , in my signature style.

Cheers, to a better , wiser, more organized, more energized, new freshen one more year older me … happie birthday 🙂

Thank you everyone, hugs and kisses. Stay Blessed

This is me ….

As a member of Toastmaster club , to complete Competent Communication Certification I have to do 10 projects for Public Speaking.

Below is my first project – Icebreaker . (To introduce myself to the club).

Here it goes ….

THIS IS ME ….

I am rough enough to resist the life’s friction yet polished enough to make my name my way.

This is the way I define myself. Independent. Passionate. Dreamy. Bubbly. Thoughtful. The other side REBELLIOUS.

What started as a fun and a strong urge to start something new in life, slowly and steadily has become a passion now. A year back it was by an emotionally forced moment that I got involved in writing, trying to pack my affection and regards warmly on thank you note.

Gradually the idea to share my thoughts and viewpoints started surfacing. Not very confident of my new developed taste, I began as a novice micro blogger through social networking sites and SMS’es. As a matter of surprise, my friends like the style and motivate me to go further. Thus started my journey, on the route of, self discovery and inner soulful expression in the form of writing.

Good Afternoon …….

Let me take you back from my new passion and try to introducing myself. Hi I am Saakshi , and it spells  S-A-A-K-S-H-I

From last week I feel writing BRDs , Service Manuals ,Test Cases etc or writing errands are much easy rather that learning about oneself and explaining to others .

Well , I will try my level best.

Born in ‘Chandigarh’, bought up in ‘Karnal’ ,I have been successfully into a FOUR year-long committed and live–in relationship with Bachelors of Engineering at  ‘Kurukshetra University’. I won the legal separation and was awarded the Hons. Degree. Three and a half-year back I was transferred to ‘New Delhi’ to start my career. Have felt this wonderful city to be more close to my heart than my hometown.

Photography and trying new eating junctions was always the most enthused hobby, however exposure to wide variety of books, meeting people all over world , thanks to client base and membership to various Webmaster Forums are latest to join the hobby list.

You must be wondering why I emphasized on spellings of my name , especially when it’s so common. When I was born I was named Sakshi ; with single A. There is a small story behind it .

In CBSE affiliated schools we have to fill application form for Class X board examinations in Class IX, where we have to enter our details, such as name , father’s name , date of birth which will be printed on our passing certificate. I made an instant decision to add an additional A , making it S-A-A-K-S-H-I.

There were 3 major reasons behind it.

First , with an additional A , my attendance roll call was now ahead of 10 students.It was an achievement, I jumped from no 45 to no 33.

Second, it irritates me when people call me Sh-akshi . So now I can correct them its Sa-akshi.

Third, this was my first act to mark my own unique identity. Put my name on Google search page, you will find only my accounts till page no 5!!.

Life up till now has been a treat and full of serendipities. Being one of the brightest students and the head girl of my school , I have also faced embarrassing record of re-appearing in Semester I Mathematics exam 3 times and at last clearing it with precious ‘40’ passing marks in final year. I was placed during on campus recruitment for big shots like HCL and Steria just to wait for their cancellation mails due to 2008 recession. It was the era of depression and the ray of hope come from final year results. I topped my department at second position.

Being a typical Scorpion, I am always fascinated with anything that goes around and love to be independent. I am not a social butterfly (I just somehow manage my online presence) I  prefer to do things on my own , just to explore what’s next in life . And if one is living alone for last 8 years, then it all becomes a habit.

As it’s said, change is the only constant thing.

From an extrovert kid to an introvert teenager and now an enthusiast professional, life is all about executing the change and surviving for the fittest.

There is a stubborn side of me also, that refuses to change. Few things that haven’t changed from last15 yrs as far as I remember.

My addiction for Maggie.

My craziness for Enrique’s songs.

My miserable condition by the very thought of failure.

My fear of dogs and rodents.

and My weird habit of wearing wrist watch while sleeping.

To conclude myself ,you may call me , a young lady , who longs for peace , loves her independence , with a  habit of living life on a higher note , who is a true blue crazy fan of Enrique Iglesias.

As they believe your work is your identification. I am a Business Analyst by profession and our Toastmasters  clubs Vice President Public Relation Officer.

 

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been”

 

Note : Hey , don’t be taken by each and every detail , few incidents are fabricated for  some spicy treat. After all woman is all about mystery !!
