Hello there Butterfingers!!!

‘I’m not clumsy, – I’m accident-prone!’   –   Daniel Radcliffe

Running down in a hurry, “BANG!….Gosh, forgot that the door was there!”, next in the room panting while making the bed”OUCH!….God this bed hurts!”, dashing in the kitchen with some veggies on the cutting board:”Eeeoooowwww……Where are the band-aids?”. It’s extremely blunderous on such days as well as quite a commotion.I hope at least some of you can relate to this experience, this post is for all you people out there – compassion for the clownish! For some,life is pretty much in control, sophisticated, just as they plan or want it to be and for some,it’s 180 degrees apart.Inept, erratic, awkward…….infact ‘Butterfingers, Klutz, Dolt or Dork’  the word they often use for some clumsy wumsy’s like ME!:)


‘If my life was a song the title would probably be ‘Clumsy’, ’cause I’m clumsy.’   –   Pia Toscano

So we’re odd, but why are we so clumsy anyways….giving it a deep thought i was revealed the following reasons for our misdemeanors:



* Sometimes it’s a physical condition which causes it (Dyspraxia, scoliosis, vertigo, diabeties causes clumsy feet), mostly it’s NOT!

‘Your physicality is this great thing, but it is also the thing that makes you clumsy and limits you in the world, so to speak.’   –   Amy Ray

*We are really poor at  managing time, which leads to mistakes.

*We are always in a hurry.

‘There have been times when I reread – or at least leafed through – something because I’d sent a copy to a friend, and what usually happened was that I noticed dozens and dozens of clumsy phrases I wished I could rewrite.’   –   Peter Straub

*We love taking stress and panic ALOT!

*Life will end if we don’t finish all our chores or deadlines today…

*We usually have our heads  in clouds.It’s habitual for us to think and work at the same time.

*Some are also day dreamers, or deep thinkers.

*We are bad at balance and posture.

No matter what, it all certainly makes us the laughing stock of the town, gives bruises and aches, and a feeling that we can never do anything right.What more, we have extra work load!Cleaning up the mess our clumsiness creates.But you know what, carrying the tradition since childhood, i have no problems whatsoever with being clumsy.After all, it’s not our fault. (Well, not all of it!) Look at the brighter side, we can join the circus clowns whenever we want, we can play JACK and JILL in any play, stumbling down the hill just like that, we have many wonderful characters to relate with like Frank Spencer (Some Mother’s do ‘ave ’em fame) or clumsy smurf, we could become wonderful comedians or mime performers.

‘When I was little, I wasn’t so little. I had a big old round belly and I was really clumsy, but I was super confident.’   –   Natalie Coughlin

Jokes apart, i have also devised a to – do – list for bringing about colossal changes in our weird life’s, where there’s too much of bumping  into things and falling:

*Be confident, even if you gain attention through your awkwardness..chill out!It happens once in a while to everyone, enjoythe comedy life has blessed you with!

*If you exhibit shyness, then you need to get rid of it!

*Remember:DON’T PANIC and DON’T FIDGET!(Reminds me of the line Richard Gere says to Julia Roberts in ‘Pretty Woman’:”Stop fidgeting!’…wonderful movie!)

*Try to manage time in a good way with reminder alarms and sticky notes keeping up pace, so that you don’t have delays to cover all over with usual klutziness…..MAKE IT SNAPPY!

*Take a trip to the doctor’s if any of your medical conditions are making you clumsy.

*Avoid stress, think of something else avoiding thinking things that give you stress.Switch on tv while you work, or whistle a tune!

*Life will certainly keep on going but we can kill ourselves in trying keeping up with our loads of work, especially if we are lagging behind.Leave some work for tomorrow, take a deep breath, and avoid ruining all that you have done already!

*Thoughts and dreams aside!FOCUS!

*Don’t try too hard to avoid blunders, cause in my personal experience the more we avoid trouble, the more it is invited because we start to get nervous.Infront of a crowd, if i try to walk carefully with heals on(I am ACTUALLY really bad with high heals!) –  I ALWAYS FAIL DUE TO THE AUDIENCE CONTINUOUSLY GAZING AT ME!

*Make your house hassle-free, get rid of anything breakable in your house…glasses and vases etc, always wear safety gear helmets etc.

*Face this world with a beautiful smile which says:”I am unique, i dare you can’t be as clumsy as me!” 🙂

In the end, i vow to TRY not to be as clumsy as i usually am, so that the clumsy community is proud of me………YIKES!Ooops, Did it again!Somethings can never change!
