The 3 C's

The 3 C’s….

I’ am sure a marketing guy must have already started making faces that this stupid finance gal doesn’t even knows that there are 4 C’s of marketing and not three…..

Well for all of them, I know that there are 4 C’s of marketing namely Consumer, Cost, Convenience and Communication…. But I’m talking about the 3 Big C’s of life…. And as you would go on to read this post, these 3 C’s would get unleashed gradually….

I have always believed that prima-facie life is really simple but as humans we just can not like simple things (personally simple is my favourite word and I think there is nothing in this world better then simplicity) and so we start looking for CHOICES and that is my first C….

Yes it’s really true we just can’t take things the way they are and so we always keep looking for options and choices in everything right from something as big as a car to something as small as a flower….

Once we have the choices in our life which we always wanted to have, we land up in CONFUSIONS and this is my second C…. You got that right choices never make you happy…. They just create confusions… If you don’t agree then answer this one… When we were in our schools everyday we had to wear the same boring school uniform but still those were the best days of our life where we were never bothered coz everyone looks the same but now when we are into colleges and offices we have got all the choices in the world to wear whatever we feel like and the result is every morning starts with a confusion as to what should I wear (thankfully in my case I just open my wardrobe and whatever falls on my head from the shelf is what I wear). I guess I have convinced you that choices lead to confusions…. (By the way the biggest confusion of my life is which radio station to tune in… I always end up shuffling the stations 1069 times)

And these confusions are good for nothing but creating COMPLICATIONS which is my third and the last C… I have realized that somehow all of us love complications… I have always believed that God has gifted each one of us with a life which is simple and beautiful but it is we who make it complicated as hell… And what do we do then…. Our favourite pass time…. That is cribbing about everything around….

I mean when we don’t have choices we crib about the fact that life has left no choice before us and when we have choices we end up converting them into complications which gives us just another excuse to crib…. (May be we seek immense pleasure in cribbing….)

It’s true that sometime even if we don’t ask for, life puts forward some choices before us but then all you need to do is don’t take life too seriously… Make you decisions quick… Don’t let confusions surmount over you… Personally I never take too long to decide and whenever in fix, I make a choice by tossing coin… Trust me it really works…. Not that it always gives the right answer…. But when the coin is up in the air you know what your heart wants the result to be….. And once you know that the actual result hardly matters….

I think we all need to think over this and try and keep everything around quite simple and take life just the way it comes before us rather then making it unnecessarily complicated….. And believe me its quite simple to be simple…

Keep It Simple…..

There's Somethin Missing

There’s something MisSing….

It is so important for us, girls to look good, to look beautiful and to get complimented for it too….

A couple of days back me and nicky went for my haircut and it was actually quite nice, at least I loved it….. But because of that somehow I really had the memories of my past running before my eyes…. The kind of gal I was during my school days… A shy and a submissive gal with Long hair tightly plated with at least 1 litre of coconut oil and thick specks… I was honestly the most unnoticed being of my class with just one friend and thankfully she is still my friend (Dhruti)…. As far as my scores are concerned I used to always flunk in maths, chemistry, hindi and geography, so you see I can’t even call my self an average….. I was way below average….. Somehow I was thrown by teachers from class to another…. I always got scolded in my class for my poor handwriting and incomplete notebooks…. And the worst part was that I could never speak if put before anyone and nobody even bothered as to what I had to say (off course my mom is an exception to everything)….

But all this was only till I cleared my 10th standard….. With the passage of time a lot of things about me changed like the way I look (I don look the same any more), I even excelled in studies and most importantly I became really confident, and now I can easily put my point forward (I really owe my mom for all this)….

Life has changed 360 degrees in the last 6-7 years….. Looking beautiful which was a dream then is now true (I know I don’t look like a princess but still I can now put myself into the category of an average from an ugly looking gal)….

And that day after my new haircut I got compliments from a lot of friends but somehow I was still not happy about the whole thing and I just didn’t knew what was missing… But all I knew was that “There’s something Missing” and now I know what is it… It’s a word of appreciation from that special someone who just can not stop admiring the smallest thing about you…

No matter how careless we gals tend to pretend about our looks and appearance but ultimately it all matters and having a special someone in your life who admires it all, matters all the more…

Now I know that though I have everything in my life but nothing would be complete without him… I really miss him a lot…. God knows who is he and where is he but I’m sure with time life would unveil his face before me and I know that once he is their in my life he would make everything around not just complete but beautifully complete…..
