Kiran had tagged me once upon a time to do this tag..And today,I want to blog but can’t think of anything interesting,I decided to try and complete this .
8 Things I am passionate about
My family-My precious Baby,Aadya,my darling Husband,my parents and my sister!
Reading.I love reading and that is something I can always find time for.At any given time,I am reading at least 1 book,mostly fiction.
Clothes-I never get tired of shopping and I find it so hard to get rid of my old clothes.Clothes and Accessories.
Honesty- If there is something that irks me,its dishonest people.And there is just no way,I can stop myself from not liking them.
Lying-I do not lie..the rare times when I may have lied is to help someone.. and I have felt so guilty about the lying.I still feel guilty about it sometimes..No regrets about helping..but just a great discomfort about lying. And so,obviously,I cannot tolerate lies,coming from someone else.
Friends-I will do anything for a friend,I am even ready to ignore their faults and short-comings..Once a friend,always a friend.
Kids- Kids of all shapes and sizes have a way of reaching inside and grabbing my heart!I am just crazy about kids,I laugh with them,I cry with them,cry for them..seeing them hurt or abused makes my blood boil.May be that’s why,I was the happiest when I was teaching elementary school!Heck,I was passionate about kids,even when I was a little girl myself..watching over the younger ones,carrying them around,spoon-feeding them..:)
God-Need I say more?
8 Things I want to do before I die

8 Things that attract me to my best friends
1.I can be myself with them,I can just relax and not worry about anyone judging me,while I am with them.
2.They have been with at all times in life..especially more during tough times.I know I can pick up the phone,no matter what the time and tell them,I am happy or sad or need them.
3.Each one has something special to teach me..be it confidence,calmness,putting across your point without yelling,determination.Love you guys for enriching my life and making me a better person.
4.I have met all of them at different phases of life and they have been just “what-I-need(ed) at the time. They have laughed with me,wiped my tears,held my hand..given me the much needed push,when I felt I cannot go any further.And they continue to do so ,even now!
5.They totally understand me..sometimes,even before I say what’s on my mind and make me feel just perfect.
6.When I want to do something crazy,I know who to turn to..And at the same time,I also know,who will help me sober up,if need be.
7.I know,I can share a secret and it will be safe forever..
8.And last but not the least,honesty-they are brutally honest with me..as I am with them.But I still have a bit of tact..I try to make them feel nice.. but no luck here.. a certain someone,just asks me grow up and stop crying 🙂 but love her anyways!
