Hello wonderful people another week and another #ThankfulThursday to practice thankfulness. The world is still in the hangover of Valentine’s Day. In fact Romedy Now is making sure you get enough doze of romance all throughout February. I am thinking of showering myself with love, for a change. It’s okay to love yourself, isn’t it?
But first the #ThankfulThursday Prompt
Coming back to myself – I like a lot of things about myself – the good the bad – both. I like that I am accommodating, accepting and ready to help. But that doesn’t mean I am miss goodie two shoes. I am always not all sugar so let’s tell you a little bit more about myself. And I am not sharing it on Facebook (because everyone from my family is on Facebook!)
I am absolutely Bad-ass
I have been free willed ever since a kid. I have been brought up in a protected environment since I was the only daughter – I was not allowed for movies, sleep overs, even birthday parties!!!! But I had my share of fun too. I did everything that I was not allowed but many don’t know about them! So there’s no stopping of a movie, some parties or secret phones!
I hate nonsense
I have a very low threshold for nonsense. I can be patient with someone doing or saying nonsense for a few minutes and after that I HAVE to give a piece of my mind. I can be quite blunt at times and I am thankful that I do that. You can’t digest nonsense all the time!
Is it arrogance?
I have conditioned myself in a way that I can function alone – I don’t want to overly depend on anything or anyone. I am perfectly okay to stay alone (if required) or go to movies alone or dinners or lunches – or even holidays for that matter. Traveling solo is on my bucket list. I have to wait a while for that – till Bluey is a little bigger. In my post-graduation days there used to be a professor who did a characteristic analysis for everyone in the class and told me I am someone self-centered!! Well, I am anything but that. But I am okay to be alone – because I am emotionally pretty strong. I have promised I will support myself in all my decisions – that, I think is pretty cool!
I like it strong and dirty
I like my vodka martinis strong and dirty. I enjoy my occasional alcohol. I remember being drunk once – but that was the last time I was drunk! I know where to draw the limit. You will be surprised to know about the amount of alcohol that got me drunk! Let me not write that here.
I am a True Blue Scorpio
I am good with you as long as you are good with me. But once you rub me the wrong way you wouldn’t want my wrath on you – so beware. I don’t like backbiting people and don’t expect that from anyone. But whenever I have got that I have given my piece of mind in my own way.
