The Peppy Five- FOR ZEST! WITH ZEST!

While we search for the picture perfect of life to befit  our dream-frame,we simply run, run and run, turning a blind eye towards life’s miracles which lies within our proximity. Plannings fail, dreams topples on the stairs of reality and at times over-triggered grey cells guzzles away all the amusement of the moment.

To ignite the spark in our life, sometimes even a cherubic smile work wonders.Adding Happy moments to someone’s life might be another trick to ZEST up our lives.It’s one’s own perception. We just need to have an eye to elicit and a heart to hold those magical moments,splendid situations and peachy people.

So, here are the  five mystical, magical recipes which spice up my life. Who knows they might be yours too :). So, read ahead to know, if we fall for the same flavour.Zest1

1.    The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. Anne Frank


Gazing an alluring sunset standing amidst the waves on a sea side while listening to twitters and chirps, actually adds some meaning to my life. If not always I can be on a beach side ,only a nature walk turns me on. Walking barefoot on the lush green nature carpet ,drenching myself in the downpours , making paper boats ,playing hopscotch, talking to the flowers ,responding to the kuhooo of ‘Koyal’, scolding the parrots who eats away all the guavas and mangoes in my garden; adds buoyancy to the mundane routine and  Zaps me up . For ZEST !

2.  “Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence.”― Robert Fripp


Music when flows through the senses strikes every chord of heart and soul. When the dancing diva Madhuri Dixit gives a language with her own rhythmic style and statement ,it is all the more enchanting and divine. Whenever I listen or watch  any of her songs, it’s so very difficult for me to stop myself to be on the floor, dance out all the dullness and recharge my soul.For sure which” perrrfectly” adds a spark to my life. For ZEST !

3. “Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint you can at it.”  – Danny Kaye


Strokes of brush dipped in bright vibrant or dull pastel colors allows me to be, me and myself . Whenever I splatter colors on the white canvass my heart skips a beat in delight and transfer me to the seventh heaven where I have the magical wand to paint my dreams as I wish them to be and pour all my feelings into it.That joy of creation is an awesome punch for me to get going. 🙂 For ZEST !
