Five things which Zest me up!


If you ask me even a million times if  I prefer joining a boring full time job with a great pay or would rather choose to work for my passion, the answer will always be straight - I will work only for my passion, regardless of the pay!

I think that's one of the reasons why I have never even considered having a full time paid job and instead ,have always found my solace in blogging and learning Fashion designing. Not that I don't intend to make something of my life, it's just that I want a work which I will put my heart and soul into!

I believe any work done without zest is worthless and joyless.

Zest is the essence of life....a feeling which makes you content.... a habit in which people should often indulge!

There are a lot of things which zest up my life. Below is the list of five things among them which instantly Zest me up!
You know not what it means until you have tasted it...
The piercing moments when you know that the results are going to be announced! Oh! My heart actually stops beating until I see my name in the winners list, and an exuberant zest fills my whole being when I learn I have won. The joy of winning something you have worked hard for cannot be put in words! Be it a contest, or a silly challenge I have with my Sister, I feel great joy winning it! Winning is something which totally zests me up!

When they said money couldn't buy happiness, they were SO wrong! Just the word 'shopping' falls like music on my ears, lifting my mood and filling my heart with happiness. I think this is the best part of being born a woman, you develop this lovely bond with shopping for everything pretty, pink and perfect!
Dancing in The Rain: 

For some people 'Monsoons' may sound like torture, but for me, its a blessing- always! If you have been a regular reader of my blog, you might already know what a bond I share with Rain!

The scent of sand, when it makes love to the first drops of  Rain in welcome...
The sound of thunder which makes your heart skip beats...
The moist touch of water when droplets fall on your lips...
The muddy puddles inviting you to wet yourself in them like a five year old...
The soft kiss of sunlight on droplets, welcoming the Rainbow...
Everything about Rain is so unnerving and zestful!


Sometimes it's nonsense, sometimes I strive to make sense, sometimes I pour my heart out, every time I write, it's my passion, a passion which makes me happy and fills me with zest!
When I started blogging, I never knew I would be sharing such a great bond with my blog like I do today. My blog is a piece of me, we are best friends. It gives me opportunity, it gives me space, it gives me a reason to stay happy!-
Call me silly but you will find I am always smiling...sometimes for myself, sometimes for others, to make them smile. I love spreading smiles, it makes me happy. My heart fills with joy when a sad person smiles or laughs because of a joke I crack or funny advises I give them.

In these Nineteen years of my life, I have learnt that if something can really do magic and act as an imaginary wand to make people happy, it's a smile! If you don't believe magic exists, smile away, and you'll realize it can do magic on people! Be it a dry meeting, a skinny situation or an important deal, I manage to steal the situation away with the help of my smile! (:
