Quirk of Habit

January 13, 2014 5 comments

Which quirky habit annoys you the most, and what quirky habit do you love — In yourself or others

One annoying habit that I dislike is people eating crackers or other fried stuff in a cinema hall next to me when I am enjoying a movie. This really annoys me but so far I haven’t told them off.

As far as my quirks are concerned I have many but they are not habits as I do them only at home. One of them is that I tend to buy/keep things that I do not actually need. I am trying my best to get over this one.

I am Me

January 13, 2013 2 comments

I’m just another person
Living a happy life
I have my quirks
And can be quite a jerk

Can’t juggle with balls
Or pull a rabbit out of a hat
But I’m simple and friendly
If that’s what you seek

I have dreams and hopes
And I do set goals
But I’m thankful I’m blessed
With more than I need

I love to wonder
Laugh and cry
And look at nature
With an innocent eye

Don’t ask for perfection
If you find me clumsy
I wear no mask
I am Me

Imperfectly perfect

May 26, 2011 4 comments

Right from childhood, comparing and contrasting is the favourite pastime of parents.  They seek  perfection in their children – perfect in studies, in arts, in sports and ‘second best’ will just not do.  I shudder to think  what would this world be like if we were all perfect?

Those little quirks, mistakes, strange behaviours are what makes us so unique and beautiful.  So why are we in an endless quest for perfection?

Does a perfect 100/100 mean your child is a genius?  It is not wrong to be ambitious but in that quest to get perfection are we not destroying their creativity?

Can we mess up things a bit?  Do things differently without offending anyone.  Be a little clumsy, crazy once a while.  That imperfection, that chaos is so much fun in this world .  If not things would be too orderly and routine.

It is our mistakes our flaws that give us strength to try harder.  If we were perfect  we would be lethargic – we wouldn’t feel the need to work.  Imperfection is what builds our character.

We are humans – we are born with flaws and each of us has our own strange mannerisms and behaviours.  That is what makes us stand out from the crowd.  That is the beauty in us.  So, let us celebrate our imperfections.  Let us seek to be imperfectly perfect.
