Grapes are sour, aren’t they!

Few days back, I came to know that one of my ex-colleagues (or more of my former competitor) was doing very well in her career. I had mixed feelings about it. On one hand, I was angry and frustrated that how can she succeed when she has so many shortcomings; and on the other hand, I wanted to admire her for whatever she has achieved until now. The same was the topic of discussion with my one of my friends when we met for coffee the other day. We started debating on whether whatever’s happening in her life is good or not (of course, we didn’t have anything better to do than to bitch about some mutual acquaintance).

Before I go further onto the point of debate, let me give you some background about my former colleague.

It's all about loving yourself!

Day in and day out, we complain about the injustices inflicted upon us by various parties — be it family members, friends, colleagues, bosses and even a traffic cop. What are these injustices? Are they real? Or are they simply perceived by us because we are not getting our own way?

They might be both, but the end result is the same — you are unhappy.

Whenever we feel unhappy, we try to find reasons for it.

Few days back, I went out for dinner with my family. While we were waiting for our order, my brother started eating raw onions and seeing this, I became a little bit nostalgic. When I was a kid, whenever we went out for dinner and waited for our order, my dad would start eating raw onions in the similar fashion and I used to be so damn impressed by the act that I wouldn’t even dare to blink for the fear of losing out on a monumental moment. I can still clearly remember those feeling of awe and pride for my dad.

Today, I think it would take much more than eating raw onions to impress me.
