The Upside

1:01 AM

You know, I have learnt that there is an upside to everything, provided you are ready to look for it (and not be stubborn!). I have always been the one to count my blessings ... but sometimes I can even make the most out of the curses ;)

Upside to having zero bank balance:
You finally stop making lists of things you want and start enjoying the ones you already have. Also, it gets your creative juices flowing...

Upside of being disliked by a lot of people:
You don't have to try and impress that many of them. These are exactly the people in front of whom you can be your true-self! [Yeh! Give it to them ;)]

Upside of not having any friends close by:
You are never a part of any gossip or scandal [I really do not like drama!]

Upside of being an egoist:
You never talk ill about anyone! [You are so busy talking about yourself]

Upside of ALL of the above
L.I.B.E.R.A.T.I.O.N. 

I look like crap in the pictures below, 
'coz these were taken at 8pm and I was dead tired!

  2. I second Angie and the yellow necklace is something I would've never thought of, I never thought of the upside of having no money you do come up with very unique ideas, have a happy weekend :)

  8. haha good one! Especially the second one ;)
    Love the red and pale blue combo!

  9. I really think this is a very cool look, I esp dig the shoes! And I think I actually *shamelessly* agree on the friends part there. I think distance enables u to share what is most important and valuable as opposed to daily gossip, which means nothing!

  10. I totally agree with - Upside of being disliked by a lot of people

  15. Photos always reflects our moods. They are the mirror of your soul. I never take photos if I am not feeling a100% or the camera will register.
    Lovely shoes, Tanvi.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hahahaha... You have a wonderful philosophy, Tanvi - although I don't think you are disliked by many (maybe by some envious moaners, but that's their problem). X

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love your upside theory!! Wspecially the upside of being an egoist: perfect!
    The red trousers look really good on you! I really want more bright trousers. And I have to say it; your shoes are beyond awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Are you an egoist? really? I couldnt tell! hehehe
    Love the red trousers on you :-)

    ReplyDelete

  24. 8 p.m. and tired? With those happening shoes? No way! Sweetie, you would look good in a sack:):) Hugs...

    ReplyDelete
  25. LOVE looking at the upside... and how the shoes tie the look together!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Like the yellow necklace and of course the red pants. So, generally, I really like the way your pants fit. As a rule of thumb, where do you get your trousers/pants from? Do you have any "rules" that you follow in order to find a good pair?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hilarious to the extent that I want to be egoist and disliked now! lols!

    ReplyDelete
  28. you do NOT look like crap missy! If you see me by 8pm, I look like a dead rat! You look so fabulous & those shoes are something I would steal shamelessly! :D

  29. Love those shoes!! And if that is crap, the I want to be crappy ;p The upside theory about zero balance is so true..After the crying and bawling comes the sense of serenity and you look at your wardrobe in a new light and try mix n matching it and all feels right with the world :)

  30. How fun are your shoes?!
    This post was hilarious and brought me a smile this Friday ;)

  35. I love all your "upsides". The upside of you thinking you look like crap in these pictures is that to all of us, you look like your normal gorgeous self! I love all the colors in this outfit--namely the shoes! I feel ya. I have been uber stressed and busy and just irritated in general lately and have had to try to find the positive things in my life to be grateful for. I will if you will ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  36. LOVE the "upsides." They made me smile. Love the bright red trousers with the yellow blue--why are you so cool, Tanvi? :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. u dont look crap..but yeah a wee bit tired!!!....

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow, Tanvi, only you can rock those pants and those shoes...You do look kindof tired, but the colors of the outfit do the brightening up for you!! Really interesting look!

  39. I really really love this post. I especially love the "not being close to friends" part, strictly because that was my situation this past year. It was liberating to not be in the middle of any drama, and to meet a whole new group of people.

    Have a great day!

  40. I love this outfit! and boo to drama! I hate being a part of all that nonsense.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Tanvi,

    Too many pending posts but caught up. How is the NO SHOPPING resolve going on? And NO SUGAR one? Keep it up. Anyone who speaks wisely is termed Too Mature For Age. In this one you look contended and not at all what you think. I had navigated to your post of July last year and agree with you on most of the points.

    Take care

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love love love all of your upside list!!! I agree about not having many friends - you stay away from the drama!!!

    p.s. why do you think you look like crap? I think this is one of my favorite outfits of you. The pants are amazing and the shoes are FABULOUS!! And I love how you added the yellow necklace to give it a pop of color!!!


    xoxo,
    Mel

  46. I agree with Angie, you could never look like crap! Real beauty always looks great :)

    Those shoes rock my socks off!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. This list is fantastic!! There is a plus to everything, especially the things on your list. With some recent events, I probably won't be liked by a few people who used to like me (or pretend to), and I am PERFECTLY ok with that!

    I adore your red pants and yellow necklace. You look very lovely, even at 8:00 and being tired.

    ReplyDelete
  48. OMG!Your pants're LEGEN wait-for-it DARY!LEGENDARY!And I totally love how you turn every frustrating situation into a positive one.Keep it up.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I so agree with your upside theory!! I too believe that thr comes that one point when you FINALLY have to/should see who you are and what you want and as you stated that is L.I.B.E.R.A.T.I.O.N :)

    Thank you for being so humble and stopping by my blog!! Pls do visit me again!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I loooooooooooooooved the upsides just as much as I love you...you make me think sometimes if I was thinner and prettier...I'd probably be almost like u...hehe:-)

    and so much light at 8 p.m??
    which part of the world are you in?
    and baby you don't look crap-that's an impossibility on this page...and please tell me you know that heart of heart:-)

    you look very different and striking just the same:-)

  55. I love your attitude! I'm one to look on the upside as well. Love these photos. You look fabulous and not like crap in any way! xoxo

  56. Nice writing tanvi. I am miles away from anything close to writing but admire people who write well. I agree with everything you mentioned. You can't have everything, can't please everybody and can't be happy all the time. That's how life seems normal.
    You look natural not crap. coming to the outfit I like colored pants too. But me thinks the pants are not rightly fitted (read crotch area).so it looks a little odd. Shoes are fab. Nice post

    ReplyDelete
  57. I agree on the liberation part :)
    its the most empowering feeling ever!

    and love the shoes :)

  58. matching style, beautiful and impressive.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I think you look a bit like Beyonce in the 1st shot so I beg to differ on your opinion of yourself. After looking at the upside you started your pictures by beating yourself up!!!! Xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love your upside comments. You totally rock in those red pants.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I have a bunch of sarcastic/silly comments I want to make, but I will refrain. Cuz I am in a joking mood, and if I write them, they won't have the same tone in them, and perhaps be misinterpreted. ;)

    I really did like your upside views. I need to start doing that more often!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I just got rid of my red pants because I wore them to their death. After this post I am on a HUNT for red pants. You look incredible!

    xo,
