Rantz of a Single Girl

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers

I open my mailbox to find not one but almost a dozen mails on the best gifting ideas this Valentine's, how and where I could celebrate Valentine's etc. I select all of them and transfer to trash without thinking twice. Darn! It feels as if these companies mock me by sending such mails.

Years have passed but there has been no change in my relationship status. Almost covered my quarter life staying single and very happy. I like my life like this.
Free, directionless, independent, impulsive & full of quirk! However, Valentine's Day is hyped so much that I feel I have committed a crime by not finding someone for myself.

What is the big deal man!
I am single by choice and love it like that. Being single is a better alternative than being with the wrong person and wasting 364 days of the year just to feel special on that one day.

As 14th Feb nears, singles please do not panic and run around frantically. Remember, even if you don't have that someone special, you have yourself, your family. Love and value yourself more than anyone. One day you are definitely going to meet someone, who makes you happy, makes you feel beautiful and stands by you even when you feel you don't deserve them!

Until then here is the list of things, you cud do on Valentine's:

1. Go for a movie with your single friends.

2. Pamper yourself by enjoying a SPA session

3. Take your parents on a holiday.

4. Shop till you drop. Give yourselves the best gifts.

5. Relish those cup cakes, chocolates and ice-creams. You don't have to worry about those extra kilos!

And if you are someone like me who feels this day is commercialized and is just another day to make money then work could come to your rescue! It's not a national holiday you could work and live it like any other day!

~~If you are Single. Remember,  it's just because GOD isn't ready to share you yet~~

Life: The Best Teacher.

I have always been a person who never took life seriously. I lived in my own dream world with a belief that life was a cake walk. However, past 2 months have been tough on me and what emerged as an end result was a refined Neha.

I felt it was essential that I put up the lessons learnt on the blog, so as to document it for a lifetime......

Make Adjustments But Never Compromise.

There is a fine line between making adjustments and compromising. Situations might require you to mend yourself and make adjustments but never compromise. Be it on your principles, identity or your individuality.

Acknowledge the presence of a Divine Force

How much ever we deny, we are puppets in the hands of destiny. Sometimes what we plan is not really what happens. There is definitely a force in this world which is monitoring and directing our lives.Trust that divine force. It will help you get out of the worst situations.

Love yourself before loving others.

People will love and respect you only if you love and respect yourself.
No two people are similar. That doesn't mean one is wrong and the other is right. Never let others demean and change you.  Don't be submissive.

Don't under estimate the power of your family.

 Many times we do things against our own wishes just to please our family. But we fail to understand that our family's happiness lies in our happiness.

Never sulk put up a brave front.

I once read this somewhere: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. There is nothing in this world which cannot be tackled.
God doesn't give us what we can handle, GOD helps us handle what we are given. So never sulk, dodge your problems & face them.

Care a damn about what people will think.

Ten different people, might say ten different things. But do what your heart says. Your life is your most priced possession; value it.
Take your decisions. It doesn't matter if they are right or wrong. We are humans hence liable to making mistakes.

And the last one......

Everything happens for a reason. Although presently the reason might be unknown it is sure to give you immense happiness later . . . .
