This Is How You Feel When a Good Guy Enters in Your Life After a Toxic Ex

PS:- This post is dedicated to all the good guys out there who still exist in the world. I know someone too who belongs to this category 🙂   

Being in an unhappy relationship is bad but having a toxic relationship is worse. The worst thing about having a toxic or destructive relationship is that you are not aware of this fact. You vaguely know that you are not happy in this relationship. However, you will never classify the relationship as a toxic one. Once it ends and you have a chance to be in a new relationship, the experience will be entirely different.

Admit it , we all have been in horrible situations when it comes to finding true love. We fail to connect even with the person we have known the longest. Things change and so do people. But what happens when you finally meet a good guy who connects with you just as expected ?

Sometimes happiness just follows and this post is about that exact feeling 🙂 Read on…..

STAY………..

Well, it’s good to hear your voice
I hope you’re doing fine
And if you ever wonder,
I’m lonely here at night
I’m lost here in this moment and time keeps slipping by
And if I could have just one wish
I’d have you by my side

Oh, oh I miss you
Oh, oh I need you

And I love you more than I did before
And if today I don’t see your face
Nothing’s changed, no one can take your place
It gets harder everyday

Say you love me more than you did before
And I’m sorry it’s this way
But I’m coming home, I’ll be coming home
And if you ask me I will stay, I will stay

Well, I try to live without you
The tears fall from my eyes
I’m alone and I feel empty
God, I’m torn apart inside

I look up at the stars
Hoping you’re doing the same
And somehow I feel closer and I can hear you say

Oh, oh I miss you
Oh, oh I need you

I love you more than I did before
And if today I don’t see your face
Nothing’s changed, no one can take your place
It gets harder everyday

Say you love me more than you did before
And I’m sorry that it’s this way
But I’m coming home, I’ll be coming home
And if you ask me I will stay, I will stay
Always stay

I never wanna lose you
And if I had to I would choose you
So stay, please always stay
You’re the one that I hold onto
‘Cause my heart would stop without you

I love you more than I did before
And if today I don’t see your face
Nothing’s changed, no one can take your place
It gets harder everyday

Say you love me more than you did before
And I’m sorry that it’s this way
But I’m coming home, I’ll be coming home
And if you ask me I will stay, I will stay
I’ll always stay

And I love you more than I did before
And I’m sorry that it’s this way
But I’m coming home, I’ll be coming home
And if you ask I will stay, I will stay
I will stay

Have A ‘Good Morning’ Everyday After Reading This Post :)

We all know how a wrong start to any day can ruin the entire day. We all have experienced bad mornings. In today’s post I would like to share a few tips and tricks on how to change your ‘good morning’ to a very “GOOOD MORNINGGGG ”

z

The ability to have a great morning starts before you ever get out of your bed. That may sound ridiculous but it is the absolute truth. The reason is really very simple. I know that if I do everything in my power to start my morning off right, I am 40% of the way towards having a fantastic day.

I have always thought of morning-time as the most sacred part of the day and maybe even a little transforming. When you think about it, mornings offer us the opportunity to begin afresh and anew – to accept all that a new day has to offer. Many people dread getting up in the morning but I’m just the opposite.

Through this post I am going to tell you how to have a great morning in 7 easy steps. My hope is that your great morning will lead to a fantastic day and amazing day.

Mango Cheesecake (100% Vegetarian , Low fat,no bake) Recipe

Hey Everyone , Some months ago (On Fathers Day ) I decided to treat my sweet daddy with a tasty cheesecake. Here I have modified my Mom’s recipe in order to be fit enough for my dad who is extremely diet conscious and loves to keep his sugar intake in check 🙂 .This cheesecake is made from mango, one of his favorite fruits,also this is 100% suitable for vegetarians and is gelatin free.While making this preferably use Alphonso mangoes(oops !! wrong season for Alphonso mangoes 😛 but you could also use those packed purees that are available in the market )  as they really enhance the taste.This is my first cheesecake I have ever made in my life and it had to be without baking 😛 My whole family enjoyed this cake just as they enjoy my mommy’s recipe . Hope you guys too enjoy reading this post just as I enjoyed savoring  it some months ago :p .

So lets get started with an easy step by step tutorial…but first let’s check out the ingredients …

Serves Approx 6-7 people.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED:- 

1) For crust:-  160 grams digestive biscuits(I have used McVities Digestive biscuits) or any other less sweet biscuits , 200 grams low fat butter(i have used Nutralite table spread)

2)For filling:-  160 gm (1 cup) fine sugar or powdered sugar or 20-30 grams artificial sweetener(I have used SugerFree Natura). You can read about the benefits of using this as a substitute for sugar HERE.
800 gm (3 cups) thick full cream yogurt
400 gm (2 cups) paneer cheese or cottage cheese*
375ml (1 1/2 cups) water
10 gm China Grass or Agar Agar or Kanten**
2 mangoes (1 cup), peeled, chopped and pureed
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

PS:-  * If using cottage cheese make sure the water is completely drained and the cheese is dry to get a perfectly set cheesecake. Try and use paneer cheese blended into a puree for this recipe.

** China grass is a completely vegetarian substitute for gelatin and gives a smooth glossy finish to any dessert.It sets easily even at room  temperature hence one must be quick while using this.

3)for glaze:- 1 mango  (1/2 cup), peeled, chopped and pureed
                            2 tbsp water
                           2 tbsp sugar
                           1 tbsp lime juice

Method:-

Before we begin the actual process, place about 800 grams of regular thick cream yogurt in a washcloth and allow to drain overnight so that we are left with half the quantity which is about 400 grams of just thick cream.

Step 1 :- 

Place all the biscuits in a sealed plastic bag (Ziploc) and with a rolling pin beat until the biscuits are powdered. Once this is done put the biscuits in a large mixing bowl. Put in the butter(normal salted or low fat) and with the help of a pastry blender or with your hands rub the butter into the biscuits until the mixture is well mixed.Since digestive biscuits are really crumbly they are easier to work with hence we need not use a food processor or anything. Remove the mixture and press it evenly into the base of an 8” deep round spring-form pan or any pan with a removable bottom or a 9” regular round pan. Chill in the freezer for 15 minutes or in the refrigerator for half an hour.

PS: Since my spring-form pan gave way at a very unfortunate time I had to use a normal glass baking tray 😦

Step 2:-

  • Break the china grass into small pieces and soak in 1 1/2 cups water for about 10 minutes until it becomes soft.

  • In a food processor fitted with the metal blade or blender, place the strained yogurt, paneer cheese or cottage cheese and the sugar (or artificial sweetener-SugarFree Natura) and process until smooth and creamy. Transfer this to a mixing bowl, stir in the vanilla extract and mix well with a whisk.
  • In a saucepan, heat the mango puree over a medium flame. Do not allow this to boil.
  • In another saucepan place the china grass and water mixture and stir on low heat until it melts completely. This can take about 10 minutes. Do not allow this to boil.
  • After the china grass melts completely, pour the hot china grass solution into the hot mango puree, stirring all the while.(do this really quickly as china grass tends to set very fast).
  • Slowly add the mango mixture into the yogurt and cheese mixture and beat well with a whisk until well blended.

Pour this mixture over the prepared crust, level with a spoon and chill in the refrigerator for about an hour. Allow the cheesecake to set for an hour or so before spreading the glaze over it.

Step 3:-

Place all the ingredients for the glaze in a saucepan and cook over medium heat. When it begins to boil, reduce the flame and cook for 3 to 4 minutes more. Allow to come to room temperature and then spread the glaze over the cheesecake with a spoon. Allow the glaze to set over the cheesecake for 2 to 3 hours or overnight, before slicing it.

Lionel Messi-Namaste India / What Keeps Me Inspired -My Story / Amazon Giveaway

The other day I was listening to FM Radio when I heard an ad that Lionel Messi has endorsed an Indian brand called Tata Motors. I suddenly remembered my school days where I would go every early morning for football practice with some more classmates and all of us were and still are crazy football fans. I was in a girls convent school (Carmel Of St. Joseph,Mumbai) where football players were a topic of discussion almost everyday for girls from my gang(not an aggressive gang). While most of them wore jerseys bearing Ronaldo,Ronaldinho , Rooney, Neymar, Thierry Henry, I wore a custom made jersey bearing the name- “Messi Mel” haha 😛 My mom would always tell me that she liked how I am so open about being a “messy girl” when it came to organizing my life. 😛 She didn’t get the pun in the name & I have never ever explained it to her.

As I am writing this post, I so badly miss those days where getting injured(Remember We Were Girls Only – Seen WWF female? ) was actually the reason I would play more fiercely only to sit at home for the next few days and claim my “sports quota” for attendance. Yes I would be get injured a lot but being a girl lost in love with Football I would never slow down. I remember I once played with a swollen face after being hit by those spiked football shoes. Sounds crazy for a girl who cries on missing out on every sale right ?

Some years ago someone uploaded our crazy football girls school pic on FaceBook . I am sitting right next to my principal on the right with a monkey face 😛

Blogging Career In For a Toss :( Goodbye blogging ??

Okay so I just realized I am not sticking to my blogging/vlogging routine like I did some months ago. I have no idea why my day-dreaming is much more interesting now-a-days. Am I just too bored of these vacations(I have been on vacations(Stay at home one)  for 5+months (so you get it right ? )  or am I turning into a person who finds almost anything and everything around me annoying.

:(

😦

Oh damn I should be reviewing the Blush I got but you see I am so easily distracted within a few seconds so you can imagine what really happens even before I start my PC. Somehow starting the PC itself is task(& no I am not lazy at all-).

The Blush I wish to review soon :(

The Blush I wish to review soon 😦

If you guys know me through the Q&A’s I keep posting, you may know I am a huge gaming addict, but guess what I stopped that too. 😦 … I really don’t understand this phase of my life where the things I love the most are turning to things I would rather not do but just sit around and trouble my pet dog (Saucy is his name). He has been a bit disinterested too when it comes to being an active dog. I guess that is what they call “Like Master Like Pet

I am not playing fetch with you- your boring mel :(

I am not playing fetch with you- your boring mel 😦

The other day I was thinking of investing in my own blog domain,but guess what I didn’t do that either 😦 I feel I am possessed by the all the souls of the world who found boredom in everything. I also gave baking a try but ended messing up the entire kitchen like there had been a splitter-splatter war with my imaginary friends.The cake just didn’t wanna rise too 😦 and I  didn’t wanna budge making another batter with some other technique. Blah too bored to know the right ways of baking(for now).

My kitchen no more

So you may be wondering why is this girl( i am a woman basically) blabbering things not related to what she normally blogs about ? haha this blabbering will happen every time I feel down in life.And this happens because I am human who has been through the emotions of being called an “AstroBoy” just because my fringe stays up after clipping it.& no I do not realise this until I see squint people( No wait they just staring at the hair that stands erect)  😦 I know right ?  that’s like life crisis 😛  (PS; I am just kidding).

yea it looks like this with my hair bun :(

my face and hair when they stare 😦 

Through this I just wanted to let you guys/girls (All my friends in this blogging planet from around the world 🙂 ) know this, before you find some of my disappearances shocking 😛

  • Am I leaving blogging ? – No , not for now but it has been in my mind since a few days. Maybe I should just relax a bit and mellow down the pace of this chosen career .Blogging is not really as easy as it looks like & I am not even complaining.
  • Will I return ? – Yes I will very soon maybe in a few days.But I just felt the need to write this post just incase you start thinking likewise.
  • Goodbye Blogging ? – Never 😛
  • Am I just depressed and trying to cover it up ? – Somewhat but you know what like always I will get over it and be back with a another post
