All of us love to ‘Shop till you drop’ but who doesn’t love to shop while earning simultaneously. No, I am not talking about your monthly salary or the profit you earn from your business but the reward that your shopping gives you. While the country goes smarter with the latest gadgets and technology, our payment also becomes smarter with digital payments coming in action. Gone are the days when you carried those bundles of notes while you hopped into a mall or made your travel booking. Now all you need are credit cards and everything is sorted whether there is money in your bank account or not. However, you need to make sure you pick the right card according to the requirements so that you can gain while you spend.
A female goes through so much in her life! Puberty, hormonal changes, PMS, Menstruation…tackling life with all this not easy. One has to manage everything from education to career to marriage to settling to a new home. However, something that changes a women’s life completely is birth of a child. Yes, that’s the most blissful thing for a women, however it’s not a cakewalk.
Motherhood is no less than a blessing for a lady. My life completely changed after giving birth to Kiara. It is a bliss yet it comes with great responsibilities. Being a client servicing professional with an Advertising agency is a tedious task for a young woman who has recently become a mom. Late evening meetings, lengthy presentations, and sharp skills to make creative team understand client’s brief requires lots of patience and positive temperament. I really struggle hard with time investment for my little angel’s upbringing. It is tough to maintain a right balance between career and motherhood but what I am doing today is for my child’s better upbringing. Just after giving birth to Kiara, I was surrounded by a lot of curiosity raised by my relatives and friends that how am I going to cope-up with my career and the journey of motherhood. To bargain between the two was very difficult, one being the dream with which I have been raised up all my life and the other being my daughter, the most important part of my life. But I was very certain that I am not going to compromise in any circumstance whatsoever when comes to my child’s bright future and would like to give her the best amenities and facilities from her initial upbringing stage itself.
A friend of mine got married recently and it was time to build a new house in a city where they had been living since long. However, their parents stayed in a different city and the new couple had to find a house for themselves in Delhi where both of them were working. They looked at a variety of options in the Delhi as well as NCR but they realised that the rentals were really high. Paying a heavy rent every month was not what they would ideally want to do but the solution they came up with was even better. They thought of an investment, not in shares or bonds but in their own house. Isn’t that a great idea? Instead of a rent, they chose to pay an EMI for their home loan.
Freelancing has its pros and cons. Infact, a research says that 38% like the profession on account of being one’s own boss & income growth. While I have the freedom to work on my own terms, which I love, what I don’t like about freelancing is the irregular income. I hate it when payments take as long as 6 months while delivery of the work is always ASAP. When work is done as per deadline, why do we have to wait for payments!
‘’When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.’’ – Sophia Loren
How true are these words by Sophia Loren! Pregnancy is a special phase that a woman goes through. This is also a challenging time of her life as she has to be extra careful about everything she does – right from her diet to exercise to sleeping position and the emotional turmoil inside her. No matter how tough it may seem and feel like, it is also extremely rewarding.
A mobile phone is a gadget which we are heavily dependent on. Even if we leave it for a minute, our hands itch! Whether it’s for making calls, messaging/chatting, playing a game, clicking a selfie or making use of our mobile internet for an array of things- checking movie schedule, booking a flight, searching something or just navigation…the list can go on and on and on. While there are a numerous things we do with our mobile phone each day, unfortunately most of the above things require a lot of battery. My heart skips a beat everytime my phone has less than 20 percent of battery especially when we really need the functions of our favourite device. We all know how it comes handy in every scenario especially when we are waiting for a meeting to begin or we are bored at work. Sometimes when I want to refresh my mind I just sit in the open air and play my favourite game or speak to a loved one. Mobile phone is the first thing we check when we get up and the last thing before we retire for the day. Whether it is setting the alarm or checking a message, it’s a device that comes handy.
A few days ago I was planning my trip to the holy city Amritsar. While I was looking forward to my time of bliss, I also had a lot of things running on my mind! Whenever we plan a vacation, on one side we have to finish all the pending stuff at work so that we can enjoy at ease but at the same time, we have our travel related things running on our mind – booking tickets, booking cabs, sightseeing plans, checking local transport, internet connectivity and not to forget web check-in and waking up on time. Ah! I wanted more hands or more hours in the day as I was going crazy thinking about all this! You will be surprised to know I managed everything with ease. Yes, I am back from my wonderful vacation that went on so smoothly! Want to know how? Read on to know more.
~My Eureka Moment to meet the king of Bollywood SHAHRUKH KHAN~
Last Thursday when the weekend had a few more hours to go before setting in, most people might’ve had a movie date planned, some would be having their shopping lists ready while there might be some who’d be escaping the concrete jungle for a quick weekend getaway. But for me, it started a day earlier and in the most pleasantly unexpected ways! I was at the R-city mall for catching a movie. I’d had an exhausting day of work (what with all the brain churning stuff I have to put down on paper) so I thought this would give my body as well my mind some much needed break.
Big things give us big happiness but what I really cherish are the small things in life which not only give us the little happiness but even the special memories which are cherished for a lifetime. One evening I sat back comparing the big and small to evaluate what gives me happiness and life! That’s when I realized and thought about the small wonders of life!
