Balloons

Blame it on being a mom but now, most of my inspiration is from my kid and his activities.

We got him helium balloons for his birthday. He loves them. We realized it when he was 6 months old and I would be shopping and my son would stay busy looking and playing with the in-store helium balloons. So, on his 1st birthday we got half a dozen of helium balloons for him to play with.

Have you ever played with one? They are amazing. No matter how much you pull them down or keep them down, the minute you leave them, they just fly back up. I wish we were all like this. I wish all of us had the positive spirit and determination like a balloon. We all have our good and bad days but it would be so amazing if we could all just stay up and above all the pettiness and the negativity..

Hope the world is filled with positive and happy and loving people.

Smiles and hugs and love to ALL

Figured out something on life while playing with bubbles

As you know, we recently moved and the new place has a club which conducts story time every Wednesday. I took my kid there today and the reason for writing this post came to me. The session started with the bubbles session. The organizer blew bubbles and all the babies who were scattered in the room gathered around her. The rest was super fun for the kids but something struck me.

Are we not like kids running after material bubbles? Oooooooh such a deep thought! No? Think about it!

We (me included) are so lost and busy after our man-made set goals that we probably are unaware of others around us. We sometimes bump into others, sometimes we fall but are only busy with the bubbles. I don’t have much to say about the topic and my baby is playing and might call me anytime but …. are you after some bubble? The reason why I am calling our material goals a bubble is because once we get it, the happiness quickly bursts and we completely forget it and run after another.

Let me know your views.

 

 

Buying a new phone?

The idea of this post came when my husband’s phone stopped working on new year eve. There was a sudden need for a new phone. I knew that iPhone is expensive but I had no idea that a poor man could marry his daughter with that sort of money._mg_9652edit_custom-91553181f7881eac9849d73023252ee2b6c1c74a-s900-c85

IMHO, it is crazy to buy a phone in which one will only receive calls, click pics and WhatsApp and Facebook. I understand that it is a status symbol and am okay with one using it as one if they can afford it. I also don’t mind spending a little more money if the quality is nice but most phones (iPhone especially) stop working as soon as the new one is launched. I don’t see the point of buying it then.

Now, I have a new respect for people who have experimented with different phones. I am glad my hubby is one.
