// Waiting for Perfect You, Perfect Moment and Perfect People //
Scenario 1 : Geeta, Nita and Perfection
Geeta : Hey Nita ! Why are you not coming to the party tommorroe and why are you crying.
Nita: I am obese. Those girls are calling me fat. I don’t like me. I don’t like them. My life is like this only.
Geeta : Why all these nonsense now, it’s ok to be obese, you are beautiful as you are. But if you think you are obese, start gymming and having proper diet. Slowly you will improve and you will feel better and confident. But that process should not stop you from respecting and adoring present version of you.
Nita: Ummm….not now, I will start after my Graduation.
After 2 years…..
Geeta: Hey Nita. We are meeting tommorrow at Jay’s wedding right? We all planned to wear Maroon dresses., you got your dress ready?
Nita: Errr….Actually…I don’t think I will come for wedding….I am obese and dress doesn’t suit me.
Geeta: You are fine and btw are you going to gym.
Nita: Actually, my new job at this start up company keeps me busy. No time.
Scenario 2 : Sonu, Monu and English

Sonu: Ok, no issues. First, let me join the classes.
Sonu joins the classes her English improves. She even cracks the campus interview.
After 2 years….
Sonu: Hey Monu, how is life after marriage.
Monu: Am ….ok…but I didn’t crack my Post Graduate entrance or am not able to crack the job interviews because of my poor English and poor communication skills. It is so, embarrassing that I can’t communicate to the guests and my husband’s colleagues…May be I am not a good wife….well yeah..
Sonu: Hey…you are good as you are.English is just a language. But, why don’t you join the spoken English classes. Or at least take the free online sessions on internet.

Scenario 3. : Nitin,Neel and Perfect Person
Nitin: Hey Neel, shall we go to Jaipur.
Neel : No Dude, I want to goto pink City Jaipur only when I get a girl friend. That romantic pink City is good only with girl friend.
Nitin: But, it got awesome forts and it’s a lovely city too other wise.
After few months….
Nitin: Hey Neel, shall we go to Rishikesh for river rafting.
Neel: No Dude, I want to go only when i get my girlfriend. River rafting is perfect only with perfect partner of life.
Nitin: But….what has river rafting to do with girl friend.
After few months….
Nitin: Neel, there this coldplay concernt in Mumbai, shall we go.
Neel: No Dude, Coldplay concert will be awesome only when I go with my girlfriend.
Nitin: WTF…but you don’t have girlfriend.
Sometimes like Nita and Monu we know where we lack, we know what needs to be done , but we just don’t do the improvements. We get busy in cribbing and crying only. We need to accept, celebrate present version of ourself but at the same time we need not die victim of our drawbacks entire life, we need to take charge and improve our situation by putting extra effort. We need to stop finding blind excuses for not working on our drawbacks.
Sometimes, we are like Neel. We postpone the joy of celebration of present moment waiting to spend it with the perfect person. The moment we are in is perfect, the people we have in present are the perfect people.
Do think on these topics 😉
Have a lovely weekend.
Loads of Love,
