My Likes and Dislikes
“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens Brown paper packages tied up with string These are a few of my favourite things” This famous song from the unforgettable movie “The Sound of Music” confirms that there are things that we like more than we do others. Things or people or acts that make us happy as opposed to those things that make us unhappy.
I tend to like most things, most edibles and most people that come my way. Yet, if I have to prioritize, my ‘like’ for an uncomplicated life with a “live and let live” policy would top the list. I like a clean and warm home loaded with good food, good music, good books and my family and friends whom I cherish. I like to be well dressed at all times and lead a disciplined life, with occasional, impulsive indulges. I like a kind heart, a warm smile and an infectious laugh as well. I like happy movies, long drives and being alone with nature. I like solitude and find great peace with myself. I like having something worthwhile to do. I have my dislikes too. I dislike milk and bitter gourd. I dislike putting on weight so easily. I dislike friction in relationships and I dislike over friendly and meddlesome people. Most of all, I dislike dishonesty.
I am aware that life is not a bed of roses and I cannot have only what I like so I have my ways to deal with the not-so-nice things and still keep my sunny side up!
