More than a month i spent with family and friends.Yet i feel i hardly was with them!!Time slips away so fast especially when you want it to slow down,to maybe stop and take a break.I have fond memories of this trip.Somehow it felt different from the earlier one.It could be because i have atlast grown up…

Being an only child has its disadvantages.You dont have someone to fight with,be jealous about,compete with,share some dark secrets so on and so forth.At these times when i am so far away from my parents i do wish i had a sibling. Perhaps he/she would be closer to my parents then.Wishful thinking i know.

Anyways i had a wonderful time and loved being pampered for a change.Eating my favourite foodstuff literally stuffing myself actually,shopping,sleeping and yes drinking in the sun.Yes sunshine is what i really miss.When you open your eyes in the morning after a nice night sleep all you need is the sun rays seeping in through the window and welcoming you into a new day.It gives you a feeling of wanting to dance,to smile,to hope for better things.A cloudy sky can be a real dampner.

All in all i just lived my life to the maximum when i was there….Now waiting for my next trip 😉

Here i come…

Excited,exhilarated and God knows what.The thought of meeting family has made all my blues go away..poof…Someone waiting for me,waiting with bated breath as days get closer for my arrival.So nice to go back to the place i still call home.Not mindful of dust,pollution,sweat and all those complaints about rising prices!!Guess i can manage to survive all that.No matter how corrupt,selfish the people are it still is my Birthplace.Yes,its nice to live in peace with no stress,no traffic jams,no pollution and in all a quality life.But how can i let go of the place which i lived in for so long??I wonder whether ever i will be able to,infact i donot want to…

Feelings,emotions…..

A small brain,a big.small body but a multitude of emotions that is within.It is not easy to control our emotions and many a times we find ourselves in an embarassing situation thanks to our outburst without a warning whatsoever. Then there are moments when we donot think before we speak and just end up blabbering whatever comes to mind. It may lead to serious misunderstandings unless the person who is the victim is someone who knows us well enough to understand that we didnot mean what we said.Not always may we be so lucky isnt it??Many a relationships have broken thanks to our unintentional utterances.

I myself have been in this situation numerous times and i regret having said what i did then.I have apologised in case i did realise then itself that what i said was wrong.But not always has this been possible and by the time i came to my senses,it was too late to make amends 😦 . Still regret having done what i did then but learnt a lesson and i try hard not to repeat that again.

Certain emotions especially negative ones like anger,envy,greed,jealousy have a tendency to erupt easily.The best way to control such emotions wold be to first start knowing yourself.Self Analysis is very important and you will come to know what actually trigers these negative thoughts.Once you relaise this,it would not be that difficult to calm oneself or tone down.We always wait for someone to understand us,but we ourselves fail to understand oneself!!! It is a fact because sometimes you realise what you are only when someone actually tells you.The best way to know oneself is to stand in front of the mirror and look at yourself.Ask yourself or rather the mirror what you are.

I am no expert but i am speaking from personal experience.After crying,fuming,fretting,getting angry without actually having any valid reason,i realised(a little late) how foolish i have been.But i am glad i atleast realised this now. “Better Late Than Never”………

According to me some Positive Emotions Would Be:

  1. Joy Best when Shared…it doubles
  2. HappinessTo be felt always…..
  3. ExcitementBe it a small thing,it doesnot matter because for you it might be the most important thing in your Life
  4. PrideNot false pride but pride which is basically felt for your loved ones when they achieve something.
  5. LoveCan also be a feeling but it is one of the most powerful ones.It makes you see everything in a new light.It maybe your parents,siblings,friends,spouse,animals,lover….

Distance hardly matters

Being away from family hurts at times.But since all those close to me are in my heart,i feel better.Thanks to Telephone and Internet,it is now possible to atleast speak and even see the person!!There are times when i do miss meeting and spending time especially with my Parents but its alright.There is always this feeling of loneliness,sadness,a feeling that i cannot be there for them whenever they need me but that is Life!!!Since i cannot be with them in person,i try to make it upto them by calling them whenever i can.It is because of them that i am here right now.A relationship between parents and their children is one of the best relationships that exist in this world.

After All it is said, ” Blood Is Thicker Than Water”.

Beginning

A new place,a new beginning,
Life has got a new meaning.
There are hardships,there are sorrows,
There are so many secrets to burrow.

Different people,a different culture,
They belong to a different structure.
There is sadness,there is pain,
A feeling of loneliness again nd again.

Trying hard to settle,
Not easy,tough a little.
But lucky to be here,
Meeting new people is a pleasure.

Friends,family are not so near,
But deep inside they are so dear.
Time to learn,time to absorb,
Time to gain and take off.
