Wandering Thoughts

While browsing through some interesting blogs, i just thought of writing a quick post. Well, its a boring day at office, its not that i don’t have work, in fact i have lots of work! The irony is my will, my mind and my heart is a little lazy today and this whole ‘funda’ of writing “The Future Trends of the LED Lighting Industry of India” seems a hell lot of boring stuff right now! Yeah! i write technical stuff about LED lights, those tiny little bulbs that generally fuse off my sense while i dig into all the technical specifications and numbers. They really remind me of my physics classes in school and those were horrible. Nevertheless, i am not in a mood to bring in LEDs again into my discussions. I am here to make an honest confession.

Yesterday, i made a silly comment on my friend, a very dear friend. I’ve talked about him in my previous blog post- Friends from the Past. That comment doesn’t go very well with him, even though i said it in a very casual way, just like those silly conversations you have with your buddies. But i guess, the sharpness of my wit attacked him in the wrong place. Hey buddy! i am really sorry. This incident is really bothering me from last night since, it was really unintentional and supposed to be funny but it just backfired! Badly! Horribly! My repeat apologies have yet not garnered any fruits but i still hope he’ll forgive me. This is what i wrote to him as an apology note:

Dear Buddy,

I am really sorry for that stupid comment that i made about you, which i am sure is really meaningless! I don’t think you need any kind of approval or judgement from me or anybody on the kind of husband you are but i know you are a nice person and this is what really matters!! And i am sure you will be  the bestest husband for your sweet wife…. I really apologize if I’ve hurt you but i really didn’t mean it…

Sorry 😦

Silly me 😦

What a Start!

Image

So my mail says its time to blog! Its my weekly goal to blog one write-up a week. I really don’t know what to write or may be i have so much within me that i don’t know from where to start and pour out everything. My last blog post was summarizing my life story in the year 2013 so this blog should talk about what I’ve thought about 2014. But i think i am a little late in penning down this stuff because 10 days of the new year had already been passed and this new year is not so new anymore. Like everybody, i too had a long list of new year resolutions like loosing a few pounds, a healthy diet, great career, go-getter attitude and so on but to my amazement, i am eating more, relaxing more, and sleeping more in these past 10 days 😛 But i think planning doesn’t work for me.

I think we should take each day as it comes to you and face the challenges with open mind; preconceived notions and regulations not only restrict you to expand your wings but pressurize you to a certain extend. I wish i can let off this pressure in the coming week. Although, half of my pressure has already vanished because of my trembling goals but there is a hope that ill achieve that in the days to come.

Wishing the same for all.

Happy New Year!

‘Past’ is Eternal so is ‘Memories’

Image

Its sad how time changes…sometimes we just want to stay in “that” moment, “that” phase for the rest of our lives. “That” phase when we were with someone special or with our loved ones, with people who we miss today and the times that made you laugh, filled you with joy and the incidents that touched your souls to the core. But with time, we move on; leaving everything behind, with a hope that this moment will come back again.

Image

People say that those who stay in the past are the saddest people but i don’t believe in this. Cherishing memories and getting a little joy from thinking about your loved ones who are not there today is an essential part of our existence. These are the small moments that create memories which help us sail through the difficult times of our lives because they remind us that life has been good to us, we were happy and god is not ‘that’ mean.

I’ve never loved my past because i seriously thought that my past (my childhood/ growing up years/ my school/ college etc.) was not that great. I had hundreds and thousands of complaints about what could have been done in that particular situation to live that moment to the fullest (which I’ve realized was totally illogical) and may be that was the sole reason that i don’t remember much about my childhood and school years. I really don’t have any clear images of people & incidents from my past that i can recapitulate fondly.

Now, that I’ve realized the importance of moments, past seems eternal because it will never come back. The important thing is to live each moment, each second so that we can create memories and never regret about what could have been done at this very moment  because later on i would know that I’ve lived and conquered the peek of happiness which is an ultimate aim of any person and be happy and content.

Image

I really thank god for giving me a beautiful life and for sending some wonderful people who loved me in the past and created infinite memories and those who loved me ever since i was born and gave meaning to my existence and those special ones that are yet to come who will (hopefully) give thousand new memories.

Life is good ! 🙂

Aside

Friends from the Past…

ImagePast. Present. Future.

These three things formulate the core of our life. All are important. You need each one to build the foundation of the other so as to take a step ahead in your life. Your present will be past tomorrow and your future will emerge from present which is evolved from your past. Each passing second is now past and each second that we are awaiting is future.

Image

I might lack a bit to explain this logic in a scientific manner but i am sure most people would agree with me on this.

The reason why i am riding on this journey of past, present and future is that this thing called ‘life’ is throwing me back to my past. Its really weird how some situations, people, circumstances and opportunities that you have left behind in your past just come back to you and this past suddenly becomes your present.

These last 6-7 months have been an eye-opener for me. Things happened, took some decisions, faced some hard time, struggled a lot but i survived. All this while in my present, suddenly my past knocked. By saying ‘my past’, i mean my long lost friends. There are people who never go out of your life no matter where on earth you are, in which situation you are, you can count on them anytime.I call them FRIENDS.

But the question is about past bumping into our present. While we might not like our bad experiences to occur again in our future, we long to experience our happy moments with our loved once again and again. So our choices makes this situation a little subjective. For me, meeting & interacting with my friend brought a sigh of relief for me as it was good to hear his story and share mine with him.

This made me think how important friends are in our lives. They are the ones who keep our secrets (not all the time though), give you a shoulder to cry on, listen to you for hours and shut you up with a cup of coffee, make you do silly things in front of unknown people and give you memories of a lifetime. I am blessed to have some of the most beautiful and amazing people as my friends. I must confess i am a bit lazy in keeping in touch with my old friends but i am so grateful to all of them for annoying me and taunting me all the time with huge complaints regarding no efforts to be in touch with them but its really sweet of them to come back to me and love me and annoy me the same way they used to do earlier.

So if one of  your friends from the past suddenly messages you out of the blue and ask you to help them, consider yourself ‘lucky’ because ‘you’ are the first one that they thought about in the time of need. And i really feel that a friend can not be tagged as a friend from past or present; a friend is a friend and that too for a lifetime.
