A Barbie Story…

My latest photo shoot is a journey back to “Fantasy Land”. A land of little girls and their dolls. A land of dreams, fairy-tale, and magic…

One fine day, wandering in my store room, I stumbled upon my mom, who was cleaning the room, and had taken the initiative to throw away old, broken stuff that we never cared to look at twice!

My mom handed me a huge and rather heavy cardboard box that once housed our blankets. The blankets are long gone! But dumped inside, rather ruthlessly, were our dolls and their dressing tables, laundry set, shower, and a plethora of items like dresses, shoes, jewelry, even food.. that *magically* appeared from the box!

What happened next… stay tuned to find out.. πŸ™‚

 

The Barbie Story continues in my next blog…

Whiling away time…..

I’m so sure, many of us do this (looking at our nails for no apparent reason and forgetting everything else around us for a while 😊) and the “while” can be long enough!!😁

But trust me, it’s a good way into escapism.. NOT in the bad sense of the word.

To me.. Personally, I feel it’s a good meditation technique.. Just that you should take care to not do it long enough.. No, I’m not trying to be funny here! It really takes me away from the here and now. It’s just me and my being. Nothing else exists in that moment..

While “whiling away time” can be a good relaxation technique, it can also be used for other constructive purposes..

I’m sure many of you would agree that whiling away time makes us feel better or happier when we do something constructive or creative.

In other words,

“whiling away time can be constructive when it’s done doing things you love to do”

Getting bored or having nothing useful to do is one of the major reasons we sit by ourselves doing absolutely nothing.

While this can have meditative effects, this can also cause negative outcomes, like being irritable, lonely, or antisocial. Many a times it intills negative thoughts in the mind which in turn affects the individual negatively in the long run!

But, research also shows that the mind gets most creative when it has absolutely nothing to do..

Before I say anything more I want you to check out this link πŸ‘‡

It states that we are often bored because our actions lack purpose! And I somehow agree with that.

So, I hope this article inspires you to go on and while away your time doing something creative and constructive, which at the end of the day will make you feel a whole lot better about yourself. And that in turn will make you feel happier and less bored!

Stay tuned for more.. The next article I write may be about “Things to do when you’re bored”.

Enjoying this awesome cake at the Pearl Lounge, Kuwait airport.

After check-in we had an hour before boarding and I was terribly hungry!! There was nothing except a few salads, bread, lentil soup and the regular drinks.. Until I spotted this brilliant chocolate chip cake!!! 😊
