Amor Fati

means the love of fate or love of one's fate. In other words - 

When you embrace your fate regardless of its nature.

When you are ready to accept the fate - good or bad, beautiful or ugly, awesome or terrifying - every emotion starts to ooze a specific meaning, a special way of alignment to the course of universe, and no matter what or how it looks, nothing seems bad enough to reject it. It brings peace, yes but moreover, it magnifies the ability to look forward after a terrible loss. Accepting fate can also be rewarding.

The term had caught my attention on FB a few days back via a video. Usually I am bad at watching videos (I don't click on videos unless there is a gun on my temple) but the term was strange enough to catch my eye. Honestly, I thought the website has misspelled it or something so I started watching and turned out, the spelling was perfect. Amor Fati indeed is a term, an inspiring one on that note.

When you stop complaining and whining over 'Why Me?', the mind pulls out peace from hidden corners of your being. Acceptance makes you calmer, gentler and provides stability in challenging times though I agree it is not as easy as it sounds especially when there is a personal loss or financial crisis involved. Accepting the fate is a Herculian task but can be done some times, if not always. It helps in making the situation less revolting, offers less twisting to the persistent agony and the pacing across the room narrows down to an extent. As I said, stability.

In other words, it can be carried around as  - Whatever happens, happens for good, Or, जो होता है , अच्छे के लिए होता है। 

We just need to find the needle of goodness in the big heap of haywire.

Why do we need occasions like Mother's Day?

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in this world. Today is a special day for mothers and after wishing my own, I feel great. Mummy did not know today is her day and she was simply surprised when I wished her. She wished me back and then we chatted for a little more while before we hung up.


But before calling her, something else had happened. I was calling her but she was busy somewhere for incessant 20 minutes talking to someone else. Finally I called my father and informed about it's Mother's Day today. He chuckled and wished me. Then he asked,

"Who has made days like Mother's day, Father's day etc.? Do we really need such occasions?"

I laughed. Comments similar to this often flow my way nonetheless I replied to him.


"No. Actually we really don't need such days but if dedicating one day especially to our loved ones, we can shower some extra pounds of love, affection, care and gifts, there is no harm in celebrating them. For the rest of th…

Happy Diwali!!!

Wish you all a very happy, prosperous and full of laughter diwali (I guess I am the first one to wish you all :) ).



It's 12.30 AM and I am awake doing some interesting chit chat with my beloved husband. He is such a great talker and an even better listener (later one goes in my favor of course ;) ). We are exchanging diwali wishes with our parents. I am really happy today as I'd be making a number of really delicious food items (you all are invited too), making two rangolis afterwards and then enjoying the evening with our friends along with firing crackers. I know I know crackers are unfriendly for our environment. Therefore, we all would be doing it in a limit :). My husband is such a great supporter. He loves doing chores with me which makes everything so special and quick of course. I find it sweet. I also enjoy his company pretty much. Yayyy!! We are going to squeeze the maximum joy out of our favorite festival....again.
And yes...as I had promised, I am sharing the two d…

Aspects of a work out

Finding the right kind of work out is quintessential for your fitness regime. Not everyone has the same cup of tea when it comes to melt calories and congeal the fitness. Therefore, if you are thinking of going for a fitness regime upfront or are already enrolled for one but getting supremely bored, chew on the key points below to get a better digestive form of what work out may work best for you. Some key aspects are given just to remind you how they are in perfect alliance with your chosen work out.

Body type and target areas 
First of all, learn your body type. There are few body types like Apple, Pear, Hour glass etc. Apple means your upper body is wider than your lower; Pear body type is just the opposite means lower is wider than the upper body parts; Hour glass figure is usually considered ideal as it contains the same ratio of chest and hip while teetering a lean waistline.



Then ponder on the areas that really sucks for you. If your waist line resembles a room size, you really…
