Just a smile

How simple, but how difficult to follow? That is not the case may be when all things are gong pretty fine.Yes. But on a bad day/bad time, upon slightest disturbances at times, is it the same? A tough person also might stumble and forget that just "one smile" can brighten your day/time or the disturbance that haunts you. Easily said than done? It does cost some effort though.

Yes. It is right to or necessary to nurture mixed feelings, and all kinds of  sensitivities perhaps. Similar based thoughts appear in my older posts too here  and there . Mind is a wanderer. And each one has mood swings in various doses, slightest to major. Sometimes we like to let go off the mind to wander. Its nice that way too, remember, we need to catch the reins soon. This is the catch. Life is not a garden of roses after all. Go through the thorny bushes too!

HOLD ON- Am not continuing on philosophical lines. We are all ware of such tricks & treats to capture our vulnerability.

At times I simply .....remember -'simply forced a smile(no-not a fake smile either)' and this made my life pretty easier. I breathed easy,  hummed my favourite number. Some things at times that made me mad clench my teeth, made me smile too. 
It just hit upon to kick start a smile on my face to put off my anger on some events like......WHEN-
  1. Someone grabbed my parking while I still indicated & was heading to it!
  2. Am driving but my hubby or/any XYZ is a side seat driver!
  3. A bunch of neighbouring kids made hell lot of noise in my apartment corridor!
  4. I notice any guile person exploiting a weaker !
  5. I notice someone abusing waiters in restaurants !
  6. I catch my kid whining over a breakfast I packed she dint like!
SMILE-and it costs nothing but few lesser muscles to work on than a frown is what I had been reading in books since school days. What ever is the math about the energy, the smile does make a difference to us. Doesn't it? Believe me, smiling always is an art or an born gift to some people. Pleases the opposite person too. At least me. The positivity, the inner thrill that it spreads is worth rejoicing.

Mother Teresa says-Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love. 
Had read something like this long back in some book [cant remember it sorry]- A bland or a fake smile acts like a green light at an traffic signal, it feels good , but you forget it the moment you're past it.
But some smiles touch your heart straight. They sustain and can be cherished always.

Has anybody listened to Charlie Chaplin style smile number?. I like it a lot.

I want readers to notice the yellow smiling guy heads all the blues of frowns. One smile can brighten up your rough times.
Lets share this with all our dear near ones. Say Cheese- SMILE- Click.

Converses With My Mirror

This post is on  Blog Adda for it's Spicy Saturday picks. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My tiny world of poetry is just a few words minced with my thoughts. 
We all must have talked to our selves, to the mirror, sharing the heap of thoughts that we stir in our minds. We must have taken that time to release the thoughts in front of the picture that formed when we faced the mirror. Apparently we realize the mirror is the path, from our eyes to our soul through the mind and the heart.

Fighting the battle of, I know you, or, hey do  I know you? eyes started at the mirror, and shut themselves slowly, in pain.
Fighting the battle of, am I you, or you resemble me? the mind  grappled, with a mountain of emotions, facing the mirror, in vain.
Fighting the battle of, you are pretty, or  is your mi…

Those coded cognitive toddler stories; Bubbly gestures; Lively imaginations: Their sparkling eyes, innocent charm; Inquisitive and persistent questionnaire - Children

We are all stories in the end. But those unending stories our children paint in their own words,  fill up the blanks of our life to be some of  the finest chapters. Isn't it?

It was last week, a cloudy evening 7pm. I walked in my backyard with my cranky little son, a toddler. And he had so much to express how the moon had finished dinner too early and slept off (hidden) inside the clouds. How it will pee and we all will get rains! I was astonished and added fuel to fire encouraging him to continue. He then told me the sun and the moon do fight a lot too to reach "his house"! Wildest imagination eh?
Some opportunities hit your door right on time. This time it was BlogAdda which introduced me to the complete activity set to foster creativity in such kids. The "Magical Space Adventure" special pack for …

Death Of A Sexist

Has any of you with sons there, walked into baby stores and picked toys bright pink and purple? How about pink and purple clothing? No? Well, wait till you want to prove the paradigm wrong. I have been doing so. Few years ago, I used to buy gorgeous Barbie and thousands of her accessories for my little girl! Also bought Barbie her boy friend, castles and what not! I thoroughly enjoyed watching my girl spend hours dressing and undressing Barbie and cooking plastic meals for a party. Now, imagine my son doing the same!
Wondering he will soon come back to his senses. He must only be doing his job. Pile up toy cars and trucks, fire few bullets from his toy gun and box me right and left. Well, that's what he is expected to do, right?  

Now, If i called it sexism, would you agree with me or not?

On other hand, in our self absorbed sane society we have gender specific roles. Woman has to cook whatsoever happens, and the man is the head of the family. We are assigned rules by our normal soci…
