In my last wrap up, I mentioned about stress because of my job and promised to make a complete post about that. So here is it, finally a life update after a long time.
In my earlier post, I mentioned that I have been trying to incorporate minimalistic Hygge lifestyle into my life. Ever since my son was born, I have had ZERO time for self care or for personal enjoyment. Yes, I do enjoy spending time with him but I sometimes want “me-time” too, where I just sit and do something that I love to do.
In order to get some free time, I started sacrificing my sleep. I would sit awake on my bed hours together reading books after he fell asleep. Now that he is little older, I am trying to bring back some of the other activities that I enjoy doing. I also followed the books I mentioned earlier to get some tips. These are some ways I try to spend quality time at home. I have seen a significant increase in my happiness level after I started indulging myself in these activities.
Just some random thoughts. It was a while since I did a post on anything other than books.
It’s been long since I spoke about what’s going on in my life. I guess it is time for an update. Life with a toddler is pretty tough. Especially a toddler who doesn’t care about food or eating. Every time he eats something for lunch or dinner, we feel we have accomplished something. He is so full of energy that we get tired easily, running after him. My day starts after he is asleep at night. That’s when I read books, browse the Internet on my phone and feel like I have some “me” time.
Today I got the news that my paternal grandmother is no more. I am a human so if I see another human suffering, I cannot not feel bad even if it is my enemy. So today I have mixed feelings.
I have always disliked conflicts. I try hard to please people, to not make enemies out of others and want to be friendly with anyone and everyone. And this has been the cause of my doom. People take me for granted, think that no matter how much they harm me, I am going to silently tolerate every crap they throw at me. I am at a point in my life where I dislike this quality of mine. I would like to stand up for my own beliefs and not have my mom stand up for my sake and take a bad name. Every time I face an issue, I run to my mom and make her fix things for me. In the process, she takes a bad name. I wish I had the courage to stand up for myself and tell the person directly about what I did not like.
I was really busy these last few weeks as we were moving to a new house. A new house that we bought – yayy! our first real house as all the houses we have stayed in so far have been rented 🙂
And along with that my dream of having some great bookshelves also came true.
