Handling Pressure!!!

I always thought in fact "assumed" that I am good with Handling Pressure. For instance during exam weeks, I never see myself freaking out, pulling night outs or for that matter getting hyper tensed about anything at all. However I realized I am not as good at I thought I was :-) SURPRISE SURPRISE!!

There were two instances previous week, which made me re-access my pressure handling traits.

1. I had joined dance group to perform here at LSU. Soon I realized, I had too many issues to commit myself for the dance. I quit within a weeks time. :-)

2. I usually make sure most of the group assignments are done in such a way that I am content with my performance 100%. Again last week I had difficulty dealing with a team and came to a point where I just wanted to be done with it at any cost.

So, it basically boils down to a point where, how much interest and commitment I show for a particular task, that makes it less pressurizing for me, and not that I am good at handling pressure all the time ;-)..and I guess that's the way it should be!!! Glad to realize that at the least NOW :-P

P.S : Now I understand, whenever my mom forced me to cook, why the food used to be less than "good" most of the time ;-) hehehehe. Sorry MOM, I take full responsibility for it now.

Nothing comes for FREE!

This is one such blog in my account I have written out of extreme saddest and pain.

Last week has been difficult for certain reasons and I am still taking time to recover from it. Every time I think about it, I feel I would have felt better had I been there and not "Here". May be it is a physiological thing! However, the truth is when I decided to come this far, I knew the hard facts and was ready to compromise on certain things for what I wanted to do. Now, whenever I realize the things I am missing whether it be attending a friend's wedding, staying with family or been there to support people I care for, I feel was it really worth it? And the answer I get each time is nothing comes for FREE!!!

It is one such hard truth in life and we all do experience it. I had one of my friend blog recently that some people just get lucky with everything and it’s really "UNFAIR". On retrospection, you might see the “lucky” person didn’t turn out to be lucky just like that! That's the way it is and you simply have to learn to accept it. I am trying to learn......

P.S : I expect people to respect my privacy and not ask me the reason for my sadness. However, you are welcome to comment on the blog.
