I decided to derive happiness from everything that is around me and me being me I just had to list them – the few things that make me smile, make me happy and like the song says..”my dil goes mmmmmmmm!!!!” I wonder if someone else finds this familiar!I find myself smiling when:
I book flights / train tickets to a new place!!
Smell a new book!
See a new flower bloom in my so called garden, the morning I open my balcony door.
My favourite pooches coming to lick my face! (I don’t have one of my own!!)
To see an old friend come online and we chat extensively on Watsapp when I should really be working!
To know some close friend’s pet name I never knew existed and tease them till I get bored of it!
Somesh calling unexpectedly (My husband never ever calls during work hours!)
Watch my growing up daughter checking herself out in the mirror – over and over again!
See my daughter get aggressive when she feels for something strongly
See a dude gymming his guts out (Secret – just seeing a Dude is enough!!!)
Make a verbal blunder(oh I am so good at it! I suffer from the foot in the mouth disease!).
People say “gosh! you have lost weight!”(its been a while since someone said that though!)
Smile from a passerby!
A smiling and chatty Cabbie
Smell of wet soil
Aroma of home cooked meal
Hot brewing coffee in the winters of Darjeeling or cold coffee in the humidity of Mumbai
Boiled bhutta with butter(smack smack!!)
Having a chat with kids!
An infant gurgling !
Lunch at Churchill
A parcel I did not expect
A call from an old forgotten friend
A tight hug from Somesh in public (rare! rare! rare!)
My daughter saying “I love you”(as a kid she did it to get her way, as a teen she really means it!!)
Seeing my mum on facebook.
Reading the comments of my friends on my blog!
A book full of Pj’s (love the sindhi and santa banta ones)
