Zing Zang Zong – Go Mad in Life

There are mainly three phases in our lives. Childhood, Adulthood and then we get old. People say we can do certain things at certain age only.

Why not add one more phase in our life called Joshhood? Josh is a Hindi word which means Zing.

To have that energy, enthusiasm and zest for life!
To go crazy in life, to follow your dreams, to live a life of your own!

This will be your phase where you don’t listen to anyone. You break rules which are meant to be broken. You go after life with no fear.

This phase will not be only in your 20s or 30s. If we make a habit to add zing in life we can enjoy this phase throughout our life.

A Birthday without Cake

I was a kid; really don’t remember the age now but between 5 to 8 years old. It was my birthday 9th September. O My birthday is around the corner. 

The place where we used to lived during that time had a very few luxuries. There were no option of ordering a cake beforehand and also it wasn’t like there were a lot of cake shops. The memory is clear in my mind. Few hours were left and we had a lot to take care of. I myself went with my dad to buy My Birthday Cake. I loved buying my own birthday cake back then as a child.

We went to 3-4 shops where we usually used to get cakes. But that day we didn’t find my birthday cake. No shop had a single cake left not even a small one. I didn’t feel good about it. My friends are going to be there. May be I wanted the cake for my friends, for everyone. My dad was sad too but he knew how to fix the issue as he always does.

We went home. My mom and sisters were ready; my friends had come and were waiting for me. The food was prepared. It was time for cake cutting. I changed my dress and my dad lighted the candles. Everyone looked puzzled. Before anyone could have said anything my dad announced it with a cheerful and positive attitude. “We couldn’t find the cake for my lovely daughter Kriti so today she will cut bread as her birthday cake.” Yes, we bought a whole packet of bread and it became my birthday cake.

The first memory that came to my mind after reading today’s prompt was this incident. Sometimes I laugh about this memory, sometimes I feel happy to have an unforgotten moment of my birthday without a cake.

Believe Me Copenhagen Has Best Sidewalks

I have completed one month in Copenhagen and I must admit that Copenhagen is the best place to live. There are many reasons that make Copenhagen such an awesome place. One reason is obviously the clean and safe sidewalks.

Roads are divided into three sections, one for vehicles, one for bicycles and one for sidewalks. And you have traffic signal for sidewalks. Its sometimes even shocking that how everyone follows the rule and walk only on sidewalks.

I wonder how I will survive on my return back to India.

Definitely there are few rules which are meant to be broken but not traffic rules.

Mistake = M @ Stake = Learning should not be called a Mistake

The word Mistake definitely triggers everyone. The moment we see or hear this word, we immediately take a tour to our lives. Then we start counting endless mistakes we made along the journey.

When we make a mistake, we regret it later. Can you live a life in a way that when you look back on your journey, you don’t regret anything? I believe it’s possible. I have stopped blaming myself for the decisions I took in the past.

If something or someone had made you smile and then it didn’t work out, don’t call it a mistake. Just move on. Life is full of surprises.

The only mistake I feel I do all the time is that I allow others to be responsible for my happiness. My happiness is my responsibility. Others should not be able to mess with it. 

Mistake = M @ Stake = Learning should not be called a Mistake.
