The world seems like a happier place when..(Day 4)

So I finally managed to convince my ‘pleasantly plump’ husband, to hit the gym. He agreed, but on one condition- That I was supposed to gym with him! I..whos been eating like crazy ever since I remember , in hopes of GAINING weight (yes, I LOVE my mum and dad for their genes πŸ™‚ )

Had I started writing this post on 1st Jan, I would DEFINITELY have written about my story of 4 years of convincing him to hit the gym FINALLY culminating! And that surely would be my LONGEST post ever! But that was on 1st Jan..his new year resolution. What I write today is about a sweet and caring this he did while IN the gym.

So since I tend to lose weight super easily, I gym for only 30 min (ya I know..seems like a dream for many.. πŸ˜‰ ) He on the other hand is required to gym for 2 hours. So recently I reach the gym late, so I don’t have to wait for him to finish gyming in the end.

Now we both have separate entry cards without which you are forbidden to enter the gym. And since I have these nice hot slacks that I wear to my gym, which OBVIOUSLY Β don’t have pockets, I enter and put my card in his pockets, so I don’t lose it. And yes EVER SINGLE DAY I forget to collect it back from him after gym.

As a result, the other day I had to unlock his locker, open his gym back, and fumble for a good 5-7min, before I found the keys. No I did not complain..I knew the fault was mine..I just COMMENTED.. a passing comment : ‘Man! Did I take some time looking for my card in your bag today!’ Thats it! This is ALL I said.

The sweetheart that he is, this is what I saw when I opened the locker the next day (after AGAIN forgetting to take my entry card from him)

Yes, he strategically arranged the bag in a way so that as soon as I opened the bag, I saw my card!

The gym entry card..thoughtfully placed so I could see it as soon as I opened the locker!

Β I know its a small thing..but not small enough to make me feel happy..As they say- ‘Little things matter much’! ❀ ❀

The world seems like a happier place when… (Day 3)

Ok, so I LOVE animals..(part of the reason I am vegetarian), and seeing all the cruelty in the world against innocent animals, makes me want to do my bit, to negate the meanness in this world. So I help a local NGO, known as Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) , in Noida.

Yesterday we had organized the first ever ‘Volunteers Funday Sunday’. When I look at animal shelters in the developed countries of the world, I am super impressed with the state of art surgical equipment, the hygiene, the cleanliness..but in a developing country like India, where the injured animals are 10 times in number, and the funds are 1/10th, Β its quite a different story. Only those who have no jobs (mostly illiterate people) work here. Its hard to find people with knowledge AND who have genuine compassion for animals to work at any shelter, the few ones that do..my respect to them! Since in a place wherein you save EVERY penny, to be able to accommodate one more needy animal, Β the salaries are meager. Β  Then again, we do not kill animals that come to a shelter..EVER..so the number only keeps growing…..

Given that with SO many animals, there are often cases wherein the trauma and injury of the animal are neglected, we decided to get together on sundays, and spend time on EACH and EVERY animal, to ensure they were brushed, deticked etc. And among tears of seeing some animals, victims of abysmal cruelty by so called ‘human beings’ I came across a fascinating story, with a super happy ending.

A bitch lost all her pups and was super depressed. So she was trying her luck with this one particularly frail puppy, trying to adopt her, But the puppy..WASN’T INTERESTED!

A bitch who lost all her pups, frantically trying to woo the heart of this little mother less pup..who clearly wasnt interested..

A bitch who lost all her pups, frantically trying to woo the heart of this little mother less pup..who clearly wasn’t interested..

So what the bitch started doing was that she would pick this motherless pup up as soon as h ventured far away from her, near the company of us humans. This went on for about half hour, till the pup got so frustrated that he started howling at the top of his voice..He wanted to play with us, like we were playing with the rest of the puppies.

What happened next was UNBELIEVABLE. The bitch, realizing that the puppy was getting bothered by her, left her next to us, and starting crying..yes, we could hear her moan, and cry..she went through to each puppy in the park, and rejected one after another, each time looking back at this one pup in the picture above, who was busy playing with us, until….one little weakling came out of the puppy pen and tried to suckle onto her..and woah! there she was, with a brand new pup..she licked him, and pampered him and took the pup with her, to her comfy bed..

And GUESS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.. the pup who was rejecting her earlier, clearly jealous now that the bitch had adopted a new pup, went running back after her!!

The pup, now looking for for the bitch who he had earlier rejected..!

And what do you think, did she take this motherless pup back??? Ofcourse she did!! πŸ™‚ And that is what made me SOOOOO happy! πŸ™‚

The world seems like a happier place when…(Day 2)

After a year of my wedding, I finally tracked down what colour I was wearing on my lips, for which I had got quite a many compliments Β ( :$ ). My wedding was a super rushed up affair, with one function in the morning, one in the afternoon, consequently making me super late for the parlour, and hence the main wedding ceremony which was to take place in the evening.. Hence I did not even have enough time to look in the mirror and notice that I was wearing a really pretty lip colour . I look quite weird in most shades of lipstick..so it was super important for me to track down which lipstick it was, and now I am finally the proud owner of it.

P.S. The shade was ‘Chilli’ by Mac.

And whats more, I am wearing that to office right now, and counting my fourth compliment!! Yayyyyyy! Β πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Me, the bride..wearing Chilli! :)

Me, the bride..wearing Chilli! πŸ™‚

The world seems like a happier place when..

So there are a million reasons to feel upset..but some stupid silly things can also make you smile..well, at least it make ME smile! πŸ™‚ So here I am, hoping to post at least 1 happy thing I experience, which seems to make this world a better place πŸ™‚

For today..The world seems like a better place when ‘you realize there are so many little things in the world that make you happy that you actually consider writing a post about it!! :p’
