It’s a person’s natural instinct to defend and cheer for their national team. That doesn’t mean that the person doesn’t enjoy the sport or hates the other team. This desire to side with a team is the passion that drives the spectators for a sport, and in the process they also admire the players who actually perform well irrespective of the team.

Day 18. March 31st.
“I didn’t get there by wishing for it or hoping for it, but by working for it.” – Estee Lauder
Today are multiple events! It is the last day of the month, It is a Sunday, It is the last day of the Financial Year 2018-19, and it is also the last day of practice of the farewell dance for college seniors (no seriously).
And yet, the fact that it was a Sunday covered up any of the other events. After waking up, meditated, then yoga and also freelectics. Finally some freelectics is back! Read a few news articles and then continued to read the book Discipline equals freedom (almost done with the book!)
There were a couple of relatives who came to have lunch, it feels just different when you are surrounded with people and talk about random things.
Then there is the IPL2019 (Indian Premier League) that was coming, so watched the match. Quite frankly in many games these days you can’t predict who will win the match. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) played amazingly well today!
In the evening, went for a drive. It is always so relaxing to have some alone time and think nothing. This is one of the best feelings of the day.
On the bright side, I feel this Sunday proved more productive than any of the Sundays this year. This is a record!!

Journal Day 13, March 10th
So today is a Sunday again, and as usual it was the rest day. No exercise or jog. No work or blog.
Woke up, showered later in the afternoon, read a book (I recommend reading HBR On Strategic Marketing, the case studies are actually interesting).
In the evening played a little tennis until I hit the ball on the other side and had to sign off for the day. I suppose that was the only little exercise (plus some skipping rope) I got today. Then went off with family to have a cup of coffee. It is actually so peaceful to have that and talk about random things! Try it!
Now I am watching motivational videos on YouTube (Highly recommended: No Excuses). Also watched another episode of Black Lightning on Netflix today (This is a rather contrast)
How as your day?

February 24th, Day 5. It’s been a very tiring day. Actually on the weekends, even though you don’t do any work, you feel so tired (Maybe the body gets so used to working on weekdays that just being lousy all day feels tiring 😐).
A Sunday is no exercise day, so slept till late. Then got ready for a religious task, had a good breakfast with kheer (rice pudding). Since then it was just a lousy day, doing nothing and thinking about my career path in life. Truly when your mind has nothing to do, it begins to question its own choices and existence. So never be too free!
Actually there is also parents anniversary tomorrow so I went to shop for a gift only to return empty handed. Don’t you think choosing a gift is one of the hardest task? You need to think of the person will appreciate it and find it useful or not. In the end, I decided to think carefully and give them at a later date.
I also have to complete an assignment that is to be submitted tomorrow, hopefully I will finish it before I sleep.
On the bright side, I did finally fix upon a career path (it was on my mind since the past month), so let’s hope for the best. And of course, put in more effort!
Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

A bird sitting on the tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but it's own wings. Always believe in yourself.
