Everything Color. Everything Happy.

Even the octopus, who has many arms, has only one head.

Many times in the past two months I would find myself singing this song or humming it to calm me down. Thank God for Avenged Sevenfold—their songs make it easier for me to go from one day to the next.

Losing my grip, spiralling down. And messing up the ink. Arrrrrggghhh!

Because nobody should ever have to. Ever.

I am off work for the rest of the week to give me time to recover. So I will spend it doing happy things. I am taking back my happiness. This year was supposed to be the year I would focus on my happiness that I may share happiness with others. I guess in my desire to “get there” I took a wrong turn and rushed into something that I probably am not fully geared for. So now I think I will have to find that something that has the right balance of challenge and fulfillment. I know that somewhere out there is that something God has especially designed for me—but the journey to find it cannot be rushed.

De-stressing with calligraphy!

The key to my sanity… now to find the people to do the work… sighhhhh

NO. Easy to write. Hard to say. At least for me. I always find it hard to utter this two-letter word when people ask nicely enough. Or when they really look like they need me to be there for them. Or generally when people ask something of me. And then I find myself struggling with the stress heaped upon me simply because I was too “kind” to say NO.

So I thought that maybe if I write it often enough, I’ll learn to say it. After all it’s my happiness (and ultimately my family’s too) that is at stake here.

N. O. Just two letters. One syllable. Simple. Straightforward. Generally has only one meaning… So which part of இல்லை do I not understand?

My apologies for the erroneously written “translations”—it’s hard relying on translator apps. 😕

I am all about protecting my happiness these days. The stress at work has been so overwhelming that I’ve had numerous breakdowns in the last two months. So much so that I’ve spent so much time trying to rethink my options. Being in a start-up isn’t easy—I was prepared for that. But I didn’t think it would be this difficult. So I think it’s time to put up my boundaries and be vigilant about not letting people cross that unless they have a very good reason to. And I mean GINORMOUSLY good reason. Why should I sacrifice my health and happiness for a company I don’t even own.
