Relish List

6 Nov

I’m just going to attempt listing things that I used to hmm mmm relish:

  • Smoking [I can’t tell you all how proud I am to put this on the “used to” list]
  • Potato crisps [There was a time I was known as the chips-girl.  I was like the Mary with the little lamb but with the chips.  And then I don’t even remember how it happened but for the past few years, I’ve not had them.  Even Pringles doesn’t tempt me anymore.  No wonder some of my friends think I could be bipolar]

  • Desserts [My mom was diagnosed with Diabetes last year and so to be on the careful side, I have said good-bye to desserts.  Believe you me, saying no to desserts is often more difficult that many may think.  Unlike with smoking, people don’t “encourage” you much, there are hardly any support groups… and then there’s temptation everywhere, I mean EVERYWHERE.  Pheww! Oh by the way, by desserts I also meant candies, lollies, Hershey’s….]
  • Texting [I relished texting… I was never a phone person but texting, oh well I was meant to text.  So far, this too is in the past along with all the other apps that I enjoyed 😦 .  I do not own a mobile phone anymore and so with the new mobile-free version of myself, “texting” has officially made it into this “used to relish” list].
  • White Collar Work [I relished all that came with the corporate job.  I was a workaholic.  My weekend getaway was my OFFICE.  There were times during those times when the idea of not-working could have me HYPERVENTILATING.  Weird… I know… right!!!] 


A confession:  I love the number 5 [and prime numbers] and so whenever I make a list of things, you’ll mostly find them in 5’s.

    Congratulations on the smoking, quite a few months ago myself. Going strong. Keep it up, I enjoyed your list.

    Delightful. Well done indeed.congrats on the smoking or non as it were. Not easy to do but we’ll worth the effort.

    No phone, now that’s interesting. Good for you. Cigarettes and Pringles can kill you. Desserts? that’s a tough one. I’ve been a diabetic 23 years and rarely eat desserts but every now and then I say, to hell with it, and have a tiramisu.

      Beating smoking was quite inspiring. so every now and then I challenge myself to quit this thing and that. Only I can never say ‘to hell with it’ and have a tiramisu, I’ll be downing 4 😦

        But a phone? I lived half my life without mobile phones. I like the idea of not having one but how do you cope?
