Where are the clothes?

I have noticed that however I seem to be at a drive to increase my wardrobe, there always seems to be a dearth of appealing items for me to pick off the rack. I go, search, and head back home with as few as 1 or if lucky 2 items from my almost close to 4 hours of attempt at shopping. I am certain many would say women are just too finicky but that is not true, I have seen that I tend to see so many clothes at so many places when I am not looking for them or else am practically broke!

I so hate it when I so need something and then nothing ever shows up, hence leaving me no choice but to wear something which given a choice I wouldn’t have preferred to wear to the same occasion. Eventually, I have noticed that I always end up having to buy clothes when I need to replace the ones which I will be throwing out the following weekend. How then do I ever succeed in growing my wardrobe? When I look at all the options which one has outside of India, the shopping facilities which exist, especially the option of shopping online when the sales are on, is what I believe helps in growing and having an extensive wardrobe. Why is it not possible to have such options in India? How many of us want that the merchandise bought over the internet can be assured of their quality? But we never have that assurance do we?

Well, now I have a reason to blame someone other than myself about the problems I seem to continuously keep facing with regard to my wardrobe.

Time to change

How right it is when amma (my mother) used to say that life as you get older gets only complicated and you should enjoy when you are a child. Then I wanted to grow up and become all ' big girl'. Now, I understand what she was trying to say, I respect her immensely for what she made me see in life, things which she taught me to be important and what would be needed for me as I was growing up.

Now that I am more on the path towards being grown up, I have started to see the different side of things, things which have been purely unknown to me and and now they seem to be revealing themselves. There are a lot many things which I need to understand, change and realize that I am not that kid which I used to be.

I just pray that I shall not slip en route the change.

Standing by ...

Giving up is something so easy and something which can not be reversed also. Starting on anything is starting and seeing it till the end of your capability. What if you decide that in between you are not capable of doing what you intended, I believe it does not hurt to try harder. One's belief when you started out on something should not die through time.

And I feel if you think you are losing the motivation and drive that you had then time for you to sit down and get it back, not decide to branch away into something else which might look easier, more interesting, less troublesome etc.

When the tough gets going, I believe the going should really get tough. And by the going really getting tough, one should stand by one's decisions. Sometimes you are not the only one whom the decision will be affecting, and hence things can't be started and left midway, they need to be seen to completion.

By this, I hope to stand by many many things I have started and things which i feel need me to see to completion too.
