Crash Course in being a Fruit Fly

Ok so Why a Fruitfly you ask ? Do you have any idea how awesome the life of a fruitfly is? I mean seriously

fruitflies

1. It parties all its life well basically on fruits with all its friends and then

2. Has an incredible orgy multiplies in seconds

3. Finally says tata to the world , dying on the sweet nectar of its love “The Fruit”.

Over indulgent ? YES but awesome .

I know its very random but if I could have a favorite pest it would be the fruit fly , while savoring a delicious juicy Summer Indian mango and of course fighting my claim with Ms. Fruitfly it got me thinking how awesome would it be if we all had that one privilege that the fruit fly has “a short life span”,what I mean by a short life span is the knowledge and belief that this is the only time available to you .

So here are

5 lessons learnt from a Fruitfly

1. Savor it like there is no tomorrow

66gway

Ok I won’t go all Master Oogway on you (kung fu panda reference , if you didn’t know) and I am not even close to living each day that way BUT the days that I do, its awesome ! See I know life isn’t perfect but when we are aware of each moment it kinda acts like a protective shield and you are not so vulnerable to the Drama Queen called life but its difficult to be in the moment all the time and that’s when the second point helps.

2. Find the fruit

Yes the legendary “Follow your passion”, see the fruitfly always finds the fruit ,one moment you’ve all chemical cleaned and room sprayed your home and the next moment there is a fruit partay going in that salad bowl,lesson learnt “Always find the fruit”,the most frustrating part sometimes is when you have yet not discovered your passion but be patient and repeat step 1 , gradually you will.Deep deep down we all know what we love even if its still a cloudy faint faraway concept , you know that you know !

3. Do it or Die trying

PERSISTENCE! isn’t that what the fruitfly is made of you shoo it spray it smash it but it keeps coming back and that is the same audacity that you should have when pursuing a goal , you started your diet and exercising and on day 4 fell sick and slipped? well buckle up and get going again ,you failed at this attempt? well no big deal learn from your mistake and do it right this time , there is always a second chance ,Just Do It (Yes deliberately going all NIKE on you)

4 .Make the move

Let’s accept it the fruitfly does not hesitate a second before approaching  others of it kind needless to say the orgy that follows multiplying into swarms in your kitchen then why do you second guess so much , whether its the connection that you feel with this man or the idea that you have been inspired with for a while when the intuitive nudge comes from within don’t hesitate  just act and take the plunge , least it will move you out of inaction.

5. Shit happens get over it

So the fruitfly gets all high on the fruit and had an orgy , 8 days later has 100,000 kids but its like “Eh,whatever come join the party kids”. See you are only human and bound to make mistakes but the longer you repent the shittier you feel about yourself , sabotaging your self esteem will only make it worse , so shake it off and move on even better find the humor in it.

That’s all for today

As Beautiful As Your Work

Hey Gorgeous,

So last week I found an email about a bloggers contest by Tanishq titled “As Beautiful As Your Work “ a post about a woman who can fit the title , and I was instantly drawn to the title .

You know, I am that kind of girl who jumps at every opportunity she finds to motivate , inspire and entertain 😀 heheh ok ok enough of beating my own trumpet .

But the most important question was who would this woman be ? who would be the heroine of my post ? and instantly I was brimming with a feeling of certainty and pride for the picture that came to my mind.

Yes I knew it for sure that its going to be her .

I come across so many inspiring women every single day be it on the internet or real life , from Mother Teresa to my house maid everyone is making this world a better place to be , But sometimes some stories just touch you a little too deep to be forgotten and occupy that little corner in your heart forever.

For me its Lizzie Velasquez  .

lizzie_story

Lizzie was publicly labeled “The Ugliest Woman in the world” in a Youtube video that received more than 4 million hits , every single day Lizzie was bullied online and offline , often referred to as “it” .

People from all across the globe would make rude remarks on her

“please die” , “yuck! what did I just see” , “Don’t spread your genes”……  are just a few amongst the countless hurtful and undignified comments she received every day.

Lizzie has a medical condition so rare that only two other people in the entire world are known to have it , she has Zero Percent Body Fat  and has never weighed more than 27 Kgs even at the age of 23 , she has to eat every 15 minutes if she has to survive.

I can imagine how hard life would be for her but Lizzie is far stronger than she looks , she did not let any of those things stop her from living her dream , she beautifully turned her weakness into her strength , conquered the biggest fear of human kind “fear of public speaking” and became a motivational speaker and a successfully published writer.

Today Lizzie does numerous seminars spreading awareness about her condition and most importantly helping countless women to believe in their inner beauty , I have been specially touched by her as I am over weight and would always feel ugly inside but she taught me that the only quality that you need to be beautiful is a heart full of LOVE .

It must have been so much easier for her to act like a victim and loathe in self pity like most of us do , but instead she took the road less travelled and loved herself  even more than ever , she not only forgave all the bullies instead looked them in the eye with a smile and said “Hi I am Lizzie , maybe you should stop staring and start learning” She wrote two very successful books

Lizzie Beautiful, The Lizzie Velásquez Story

Some people prove to the world by their work that its not LIFE that is unjust but your own attitude towards yourself that makes it so , you are the sculptor of your own life and the thoughts that you choose for yourself can either sculpt you into a phenomenal piece of art or a clump of nothingness , I think Lizzie is the most perfect match to the statement  “As Beautiful As Your Work “

Its a great initiative that Tanishq Mia has taken to appreciate and bring together such inspiring  women and given them a platform to share their success stories . Oh and i LOVED the commercial 😀

How makeup lifted my mood and boosted my confidence !

Hey Gorgeous,

I just love reading Fashion magazines and watching all the makeup and clothes and the pretty models , with that perfect figure flawless skin and carved features , but if I do that for too long i start seeing myself as so imperfect .

All I can see is my dark circles and frizzy hair and double chin , that doesn’t make me feel good at all.

But am i going to let a magazine decide if I am pretty ?

There is a thin line between getting inspired and intimidated , its always a choice , where inspiration can mobilize you to take the  right step , intimidation can paralyze you.

So stay Inspired stay Happy !

Hope you all enjoy !

Love

Isha

So I took out my makeup bag and here is what i created 🙂
