I watch myself getting uglier and uglier with each passing day, and I am not even beautiful to begin with.

The other day I tried to photoshop one of my pictures, I don’t like the result. It didn’t look right. Devoid of all the imperfections and the tell-tale signs of the passing of time, it wasn’t me anymore. So, I restored the photograph to its original state. I rather be ugly than be someone else.

  1. “The ego is a monkey catapulting through the jungle: Totally fascinated by the realm of the senses, it swings from one desire to the next, one conflict to the next, one self-centred idea to the next. If you threaten it, it actually fears for its life. Let this monkey go. Let the senses go. Let desires go. Let conflicts go. Let ideas go. Let the fiction of life and death go. Just remain in the centre, watching. And then forget that you are there.” ~Lao Tze


      1. Nobody can be in forever mid-life crisis ( unless you’re my ex) I think it just a phase and will go over soon. But of course one has to keep a sensible head on ones shoulder in order not to go overboard. I will wallow in my misery 🙂 and wait for the click in my head to signal it’s over and time for something new.


Be memorable. Say something unforgettable.
