Dear Diary,
How have you been? I know I haven’t written in you in a while.. As I say silence means good news! So things have been going good, have been busy with work/projects and also managed to do not one but three trips to Bangalore [ albeit short ones] over the past 2 months. 
Looks like my “no bangalore” streak has been broken. I might be one more trip there, if only to spend more time with the cute little bundle there… He has the cutest smile and laugh that bursts into air overtime you sing a nursery rhyme, esp Pat-a-cake baker man… 🙂
Apart from this, friends are always around, which makes it all worth while… But then off late I do notice there are a few changes in their behaviour… One odd has started pulling away, I am perfectly fine with that, just hope they aint going down the wrong path [ if my intuitions have taught me anything, it is that they are always right, which is what worries me] but then I do know that I cannot control or be there to guide people, they will figure life out..
Also realised I don’t need some people in my life.. Makes me sad to cut them off but I am doing it for my own good.. Negativity around does sneak into your life and pulls you down… And these are people who I have come to realise just don’t change, even though they talk about changing.. If i were to tell them this, their response would be “you have no idea how horrible my life is, I just can’t do what you have done.. la la..” well, all I can say is “If you want to change, you need to find a way to change, else stop cribbing and deal with it”… 
Being in touch with people is good, but off late the sense of constantly in touch is getting to me.. I am the kind who likes space and so I consciously switch off.. And then there are those who you think care, who turn out to be just the opposite.. hard to digest but needs to be accepted ~!! Expecting them to do anything else is like expecting Floppy to talk, well he does by barking but imaging if he started talking like em dogs in Dr Dolittle.. 😀 
Well, the past few days have been trying- in terms of health, life and work.. but things will settle down and I shall bounce back to my usual self.. Until then, time to just let go and live it up!! 
See you later… 
Adios
Yours truly
Aarti
