Charitable – WordPress Writing Prompts

Posted by Sowmya:) on April 13, 2014

Today’s prompt goes something like this –
You’ve inherited $5 million, with instructions that you must give it all away — but you can choose any organizations you like to be the beneficiaries. Where does the money

Well, if I had that kind of money, I would most definitely give it all to causes relating to children. I have always thought and believed that kids get a raw deal most of the time. They pay the price for the bad decisions of older people and need to live with the consequences for no fault of theirs. One cause that is very dear to me is the treating / helping children with HIV or AIDS. I have been looking for a charitable organization which specializes in that but yet to find something worthwhile. This would be a cause I would want to donate time and money to. It’s close to my heart and something I would want to make some kind of contribution to.

Decisions, decisions – WordPress writing prompts

Posted by Sowmya:) on April 13, 2014

A bit of a backlog already, but here goes today’s writing prompt- it’s about how I make decisions. Is it by carefully weighing in the pros and cons or more like a gut feel thing.

I have always believed that I probably belong to the minority which does not have a head versus heart conflict. I don’t know how. When I am faced with the need to make a decision, I always know what I want to do or what needs to be done. My head and heart collaborate and give me one decision. I know clearly when I follow my head and when my heart and I know why. I like to think I weigh all aspects of the consequences of my decisions and then take a call. But mostly it is done in an instant and maybe that is gut or my brain works that fast. Could be both. I read somewhere that a study was conducted and proved that though we think we take logical decisions after weighing in all aspects, in reality we take a decision and then think of ways to justify it. That could be true…..what else could be the reason for so many irrational decisions by seemingly smart people?

So there, my decisions are instant and surprisingly I have not regretted most of them. So I am going to go with it till everything is going well for me. So far so good…….

Press It -WordPress Writing Prompts

Posted by Sowmya:) on April 13, 2014

The writing prompt for today from WordPress is to link three blog posts that I have read and tell you why I loved them.
So here goes –

I chanced upon this link on twitter and the title intrigued me. Not surprising considering that anything with Mom, child, etc catches my eye more often now.
But it was so much better than expected. I have read enough mommy blogs and though I appreciate everyone’s need to out their experiences out there, I can usually see a pattern to their writings. It’s typically mommy guilt combined with offspring pride and such like. Quite a few of them are good but I had kinda had it with the same old thing. This one was quirky and fun and put the usual ideas very differently. I had experienced very little of what she wrote but I could relate to those and look forward to other experiences as my daughter would grow older. Fun post!

The other one I enjoyed was Deconstruction of Arvind Kejriwal . I have followed this blog for long and love the analysis and deconstruction done. He is usually very detailed and observes nuances that most others miss. Add to it, he mostly writes what I am thinking but am unable to articulate. So that feels awesome!

I don’t have a third post to link. So that’s all for today. Good night!
