365 Writing Prompts: Break down

Tell about a habit you’d like to break. Is there any way it can play a positive role in your life?

A habit is something not easy to break, think about the millions of smokers, they know it’s detrimental to their health and they must break this habit, but they cannot.

Then there are scores of people who love fast food, which is also harmful as far as their health goes, they are not successful giving up this craze for fast food.

These are only couple of things I’m thinking of which are bad habits, there are good habits as well, such as,”early to bed early to rise makes a person, healthy,wealthy and wise.”

At this moment I cannot think of a habit I’d like to break!

DP Daily Prompt: Litmus,Litmus on the Wall

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

If you had to come up with one question the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be? What would the right answer be?

My question is: Is it safe to make friends with someone I’ve just Met?

In my mind the right answer to my question is: In this world of ours there are a variety of personalities,  there is no doubt, ” human being is essentially good and peaceful.”, it’s a quote by a famous philosopher. In my mind I know at birth a child is an innocent soul, he is as fresh and pure as a daisy.

When this same human grows up he comes into contact with a variety of people, some are good some are evil, sometimes this little soul can be tempted to do things that are evil, this is one side he hasn’t learned,his parents has taught him what is good and he should always be truthful, honest and trustworthy.

When he meets someone who teaches him the exact opposite, he will be tempted to try. If he’s lucky he’d decide on his own this is not the right path, but if his curiosity gets the better of him, he’d continue to do illegal things secretly, after a while it’ll be a habit and he won’t be able to turn it around.

Good and evil seems to go side by side, this feeling will make me want to know the person first, before I  try to be friendly.

I have a terrible habit of buying fabrics. Every time I visit one of these fabric stores,I instantly think of buying a piece or pieces to make an outfit for myself. I cannot qualify to be a seamstress, I am not even passionate about sewing,still I have a tremendous desire to buy.

I bought two pieces a few years ago to make a dress for myself,it didn’t happen.I am thinking of having a proper place to do the job. So far I am not sure which room in the house will be perfect. As I could not decide,the pieces of fabric are lying folded hoping to take some kind of useful shape for me.

Couple of days ago I went to the fabric store with my daughter.She was looking for a pattern and material for a ‘Halloween’ costume. I looked around,saw some beautiful material for a Saree. While deciding which one will be perfect, I could hear a voice telling me,’Ranu you have new ones you haven’t yet worn,what makes you think you will wear this one’.I listened to the voice and stopped looking. Will I hear the voice again ,when I am itching to buy? I sincerely doubt.

The only way to break this habit is never to go to the fabric store,this is what I think.What do you think?

DP Daily Prompt: Never post by Ranu

Since I read the daily prompt,I wondered what is it, I ‘ll never write about. I have a whole list of things,I like to write about. Which one can I safely erase from my list?

This is what I think I cannot and will not write about. It is my eating habit. I love food and I like the variety that is out there.How I tackle them can  be  frightening for all those health conscious addicts. It may scare the  daylights  out of authors of diet books.

I feel at ease knowing no one gets to criticize me. I read their books but when it comes to following, I keep me out of the picture. Good or bad ,I like my choice.

Anything,any place that’s messy makes me anxious and  cranky. When my home is messy,watch out,I am so angry ,I don’t see straight . I have  as my husband put it,O.C.D( obsessive compulsive disorder).Whatever my family thinks I have,I cannot relax until I clean up and straighten up everything.This is how I defend myself,don’t you think everything looks fabulous when things are squeaky clean.I go about my business of making the beds,dusting the furniture,cleaning the bathroom,Vacuuming the rooms.When things are in order,I sit down and look around and am quite pleased with my efforts.

Before the company comes,I make sure everything is in top shape. I don’t want to be called untidy. One of the things that irritates me the most,is a sink full of dirty dishes in the kitchen. I cannot feel at ease until the dishes are washed,dried and put in their respective cupboards. Why should anyone say I have O.C.D,I only try to have a clean and orderly home.

When I wash the chicken after cutting the pieces,I wash them few times,I see vegetables in the super market on the shelves,I bring them home and after cutting them I wash them.I wash the fresh vegetables thoroughly,unless they are in a clean bag with the sign pre-washed.I don’t think I have any kind of disorder,I am careful. In school I tell the kids to wash their hands,before they eat.It’s a healthy habit ,don’t you think?
