Hotha hai… C’est la vie 

Two months in Pune and I’ve had to dig deep with my hindi skills. One of my favorite quotes has been “hotha hai” or it happens. I find its usage very close to “C’est la vie” or “such is life”.

These phrases are amazing resets for when things are not going your way. It becomes the immediate response when sh*t hits the fan and builds a “yes, and” mindset- a mindset that doesn’t question the rationale for the situations but one that explores the available options given the situation.
