Happiness Is

I was feeling relatively low today for some no reason at all. Just one of those morning blues I would say. That’s when I decided to write about Happiness and random things that make me happy to simply cheer myself up, and while cooking today’s lunch, I started thinking things I would write about and you won’t believe even thinking made me happier.  I am in a much better mood now. See how our mind works. So here is a list of few random things that makes me happy. Happiness Is

  • When TBH exactly knows what I am feeling – like no mood to cook, mood to go out for a movie, mood to eat an ice-cream, to get a new foot wear, to just sleep, sit or talk. It never stops to amaze me that how much he knows me in and out in our 2+years of relationship. I just love him for that.
  • Waking up to TBH’s teaJ. He has been making the morning tea since last two weeks because he gets up much before me and the tea pushes me to come out of bed. Haven’t I already told that he is just super awesome husband?
  • Super elated sister on the other side of the phone – sharing random happenings of her life.
  • Curry leaves + curd combo in every possible way – aloo raita, cucumber raita, curd rice, plain curd with tadka etc etc.
  • My new found love – fruits and everything to do with them, fresh bowl as a snack, juices, shakes, smoothies, fruit lassis – just about everything.
  • Shudh desi khana – this is also new but I am not able to get enough of it. All rice combos, all vegetables, everything to do with Indian khana. I was never someone who would eat roti when eating out but now I only look for Indian options.
  • Cold showers in summers.
  • Clean kitchen top. Dustfree house. Well stocked fridge.
  • That extra squeeze of lemon in everything you eat.
  • Random hugs and kisses from TBH.
  • Talking to both my mommies (Mine and MIL). It always cheers me up. They are two super awesome moms.
  • Talking movies with Papa. That’s the only topic that makes us exceed our one minute call time: P.
  • Afternoon nap with TBH on his laptop besides me.
  • Finishing tasks on deadline – home cleaning, personal projects, professional initiatives, shopping etc.
  • Baking and surprising a new mom with the super yummy cake.
  • Clean bathrooms with everything at proper place.
  • Reading regularly and finishing books after books from the reading list.
  • Catching up back to back good films in the theatre.
  • Reading some amazing blogs out there.
  • Walking with TBH.
  • TBH cancelling all work travel plans to be with me. 
  • Rewatching your bachpan ke photos – the sister uploaded a lot of our childhood pictures on fb and re-watching them again and again gives me immense joy.
  • When the radio plays your favorite song.
  • Being able to freshen up right in the morning, this one thing sets my whole day in a positive note. This is so evident that day before yesterday my dad whatsapped me this article – http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/opinion/edit-page/You-gotta-go-gotta-go/articleshow/33404651.cms
  • Writing in Hindi after a long long time, that too a six page speech for my MIL to be delivered in an event and getting appreciated for it. 

So the list can just go on :). There is lot to be happy about, and when next I am in low mood, I will probably just come here and read this again:).

    Counting your blessings is a great way to cheer yourself up. Thankyou for reminding me that since you know I am in an awful mood since a couple of days.

    Even I can’t talk to my dad for more than a minute!

    And hey, I wanna know your name…first name would do. Just like that 🙂
    You can obviously choose to remain A for Anonymous. Then I’ll call you A!

    Making happy lists refreshes your mood and makes you appreciate things more. I experience that while writing to Zack 🙂

      Do you guys often communicate on emails? I wish me and TBH would have continued that, we used to do that a lot in early days of our marriage 🙂
