It is Twitter time!!

Hello you people, it is that time again where I am forcing my lazy self to complete a to do which is there in my  task list from few weeks- oh you  guessed it right- sharing my thoughts in my own little crazy but factual way :-) Ok now, this one is going to be very short he he :-) and I want to make it very interactive, how? I would want each one of us reading this update to ask and talk to self- even if one of you  would do that- It would serve the purpose - now that includes me :)

Let me start by talking a bit about the title of this update,  it is Twitterrrrrrrrrrrr time! it so happened that on a Saturday evening I was lazing on a sofa and mom asked my dad- why don’t he and I go for an evening walk- and his reply stumped me though I laughed my heart out initially but there the actual retrospection began " He said she is tweeting, and does not have time for a walk " ! Now I was surprised, as my dad is kind of aware of social networking sites but am sure never realized he is aware of twitter! - now coming back to my retrospection - the most important part I realized which  for sure you  all will relate to in some form or other- is that of habitual certainty-  logging on to twitter had become nothing but a necessity, now hang on- is this something bad? Is that not fun? Is that not keeping me well informed? No that was not what made me ponder? The fact was what was it getting me? What was there in it for me?

Tough part of thought process? Working from home made me so very immobile, and so much so I have been spending time online - now again this is not bad, but there are other so call side affects: p. I began to analyze- , I like it, this is phenomenal- today I can talk to anybody, connect, follow share my thoughts and if I try harder can get lot of attention in the right spirit- wonders of technology isn’t it? But still -something was pricking inside me - the balancing act was missing- working from home reduced lot of physical activity, increased lot of work- - what am I trying to say here? People we all know the wonders of technology and so much so social networking no questions about it- hang on but are we doing the balancing act?

Some of us those who say yes- are the ones I think are disciplined and are focused - now what is the point?
Point is simple we have made technology our habitual certainty and it is in a way eating up our ability to reach out to nature! Big thing people, this is dangerous, in every aspect. Ask me how?

Let’s begin with spellings- ah how do I spell serene? oh is this the right way? google it? ah simple, math, :-p no questions, answers to any historical facts, google- so I am not exercising my brain-slowly but surely the wiz kids of the next GEN might not really be natural child prodigy but technologically sound and dumb if I may call. I will limit it to this one danger- and am sure there are many adversities- I don’t want to touch on those right now.

Now having this enlightenment- I started looking at my old tweets- and picked up something from Robin Sharma- on how can I make 2013 fabulous - there I had some most important to do's which started with the spelling D - yes discipline myself and bring a balance to everything I do- and I started with a long due doctor's appointment to check my stiff neck- slowly turning into a head forward syndrome..That day at the doctor's I realized how much i have missed on being my excellent self - which was doing that balancing act! Now it is not that easy to get back- so as they say - Health is wealth, true - no not gyan we all know but yet we ignore so here are my two cents lets all ensure we do that balancing act in everything we do!

Lastly- not sure how many of you watch the comedy serial "Tarak Mehata Ka Oolta Chasma" there one of the prominent character "daya behen" says" One must always invest time in the personal bank for their health" Never know what you might get into!!  Loved the way she said in Hindi "Samay ka bank"

So, while I continue to tweet, I would ensure I keep that balance!  Hope my message makes you think and talk on those habitual certainties where you must make an attempt to bring back the balance.

Until next time- stay safe, stay happy and yes keep the balance!!

Cheers!
