The Challenge

Yesterday was a challenging day as far as work is concerned. Issues were cropping up one after the other and I was too occupied throughout the day. The upside was that I was wearing a new outfit complete with a new pair of shoes with which I have fallen in love from the moment I saw them. Cherry on the top of the cake was that they were on a 60% discount and I could not have asked for more.

Sometimes I fail to understand why people behave the way they do. I understand that everybody has their own reasoning behind their behaviour but then again reasoning is a very subjective thing. My reasoning of a situation can be completely different than a person who is there in the same situation. It is like looking at it from a different angle.

But then sometimes, reasoning is over taken by lot of other things, sometimes good sometimes not so good. The problem is when the not so good things overpower the logical reasoning that is when the friction starts. Instead of doing what is right and of a common interest people tend to do what they think is right. The common interest is defied by self interest. While this is in context of work, it stands equally true in our personal lives as well.

How many times we think that doing a thing in a certain way or on a certain time is beneficial for the people concerned in general? Are personal interests or personal ambitions so important that we forget to be compassionate towards others in general? Well there are lot of questions like these which come to my mind in such difficult situations. But to my great surprise, I  responded very positively to all the chaos and adverse situations.

I tried negotiating on fair grounds without raising my voice and I succeeded! Secondly the limitation and dead ends which were placed in front of me, I actually picked up an pick axe and started paving my way and again to my great surprise I realized that the paving is actually in the right direction. Yes, I have started working towards the path to reach the destination which someone told me I will not be allowed to reach **smiling smugly**.

I actually laughed my heart out with R (who is mentioned in lot of earlier posts), she actually gave me a very nice feedback of what I have become to which I replied that I prefer to sit quietly when the other person is expecting a great retaliation and let them be in the anxiety of waiting for my next move. Go figure! 😀 . This actually lightened my mood and gave me the strength to move on and make things happen instead of sitting a corner and sulking.

So with the new outfit, new outlook and the challenges the day came and went by and ended on a good note (literally)!



Weather Update

The update is that I am feeling a bit under the weather. I am hit by terrible cold and throat infection out of which the throat infection has bowed out gracefully and the cold has stayed to haunt me. Work has been a bit crazy in this week but fun nevertheless. Being busy is far more fun than being idle, being on my toes makes me feel lively and in action.

Another update important is that the BFF with whom there was a misunderstanding is cleared and how! The BFF came to meet me and I launched a full attack with Sarcasm Warfare Technique and soon was rewarded with a white flag from the opposition **evil grin**. After the casualties were accounted for accurately, opposition was called for negotiations and what can be retained. So I very kindly granted the sanity of the opposition which otherwise I would have kept and used to my best possible extent.

With the war peace prevailed and the friendship flourished big time. We are back to our crazy self and have been talking almost nonstop from Wednesday onwards. It took some time to clear the back log of the updates which were not given because of the cold war before the Sarcasm attack was launched. The update took some time and then the giggle and laughter fits were back. The highest qualities of PJs were exchanged and celebrated.

Discovering and having a friend with same mental disabilities as yours is priceless. Really!

Dear Friend Mentioned Above,

I am blessed to have you in my life and I thoroughly enjoy the insanity we share. Thank you!

Another update is that our organization has planned an off-site for our department which is on this Saturday and we are all so looking forward to it. A Hawaiian Theme party is planned on Saturday evening and we are all gearing up for it with super enthusiasm. Props are procured, outfits finalized but I am unable to find a footwear matching with the dress :-(. The upside is that there is one more day and I will try and find it :-).
