I need both routine planning and laissez-faire or spontaneity in my life.
Sometimes I have to follow a routine, spontaneity doesn’t work on such occasions, for e.g., I have to get up at a certain time in the morning to say my prayer. There are five times a day prayer I have to do. I cannot say it when it is convenient.
I have a specific time for supper,I follow that time table too.
But then again when it comes to writing I put it off till I get into a mood for it. I am unable to have a specific time for it, I cannot force myself, if I do my mind is completely blank, and I don’t succeed anyway.
Sugar is great, had I not known how it stealthily comes to make me eat it and then does all the evil things to me. Can I make a list,why I think so?
Sugar ruins my teeth, it causes my blood sugar to rise, it makes me gain weight, so I cannot really befriend sugar. As tempting as it is I have to think about my health before I give in to a slice of cheesecake or chocolate coated cashews.
When I was young I did not like sweets,I was always in favor of eating spicy nuts,sour berries, tamarind coated with cayenne and simply green chillies with my rice.
I’d get vicious stomach ache after a week, I’d promise myself and my family I’d never touch the hot stuff.
Addiction tied me down, I couldn’t eat anything without some green chillies, the cycle continued hot chillies tummy ache and my promise to stay away from the hot stuff.
Then I entered into the land of matrimony, my husband loved sweets he’d always ask what’s for dessert,while eating supper. I’d try to keep him away from sweets but could never succeed. I started eating little at a time and discovered this stuff is not so bad. I was liking it more and more. Instead of giving up spicy food I added another thing which was equally bad for me.
Now I wonder who is responsible for my bad habits,I’d say Mom introduced me to spicy foods and my husband for eating sweets.
You want to know what is my favorite dessert or what is my favorite salty snack. I’d say none of them. They are bad for me.
