The number thirteen

I was born on the 13th

All these years I thought 13 was supposedly my lucky number..

I have finally realized what is the real meaning of this number in my life..

For every 1 step I take forward, I will go 3 steps behind.

Get it? I do.

New bundle of joy!

One year ago, around this time I was getting all emo that my baby brother is getting hitched. And today, he is a father of a baby.

Not surprised, not overwhelmed nor I am bothered.

For once I am happy. Truly happy, for him, for us and the baby.


Disclaimer: This post is valid only for a year, as I'm pretty confident I'll change my mind when he turns into a lil monster this time next year.

Is there anything better than the smell of newly mowed grass? Well, maybe not, but I can think of a few rivals; The whiff of unexpected rain on a hot day; Zesty oranges! ; Freshly brewed coffee - I swooned and almost fell face forward with ecstasy into the real thing after being on decaf for the pregnancy.

Speaking of which, I've recently hauled my ass to the gym and Zumba. There's only so much weight that will melt off with breastfeeding. The rest has to go the old fashioned way. So yesterday at Zumba, while I was gyrating and gasping, I noticed a new girl at the back of the class. My eyes kept going to her because she was really grooving to the music. It seemed like an invisible rhythmic puppet master was playing her strings, right down to her little toe.

The fact that she was very fat, was really, quite negligible.

That spoke volumes to me. Whatever I do - Have fun. Be confident. And that itself draws people to all the positives I have, instead of the negatives.

As a wise person once said, 'Don't bother taking yourself too seriously, no one else does anyway!'
