Oh my Bump! is my weekly chronicling of this little pie baking away, and a sharing of the ebbs and flows of being two at a time. Its a wonderful journey of rising and falling hormones, the beating of two hearts, and a huge sea of change to the body. It’s love and life all the way.
The chandelier earrings! #jewelry #athingofbeautyisjoyforever
25 weeks! Swear this one flew by. Literally in traffic jams!! Being pregnant and stuck in a traffic jam may well be the worst thing ever considering the cramped positioning one has to endure for a large amount of time. Took me 3 whole days to get over the tiredness jostled up by a 3-hour traffic jam. I sure do hope Baby B comes out with a set of wings 😀 This week I caught up on reading, finished the book Grow by Jim Stengel – which I totally loved. Its a non-fiction read where Stengel mostly writes about business ideals and gives us a dekho into some of the world’s greatest and most loved companies. My takeway from that book was mainly this one point – have an artist as the leader of the company, a CEO, CFO or the one who literally drives the company. Creative folks apparently have an edge with a completely different view, the per se out-of-the-box thinking. However, they must be backed up by the do-ers, ones who are pragmatic and have their feet firmly in the ground. A wonderful read. He also talks about the 5 basic ideals or fundamental values of which most companies follow atleast one. The values being those of eliciting joy, enabling connection, inspiring exploration, evoking pride and impacting society. Pick one and start now he says, start big or start small, but start now.
