Valentines day: Some Random Thoughts

A cute DIY vase made by ‘Lil’ for her roses that’ll come on valentines day

Sooo tomorrow is valentines day !
I wish all the lovers a very happy valentines day 🙂  Well! Having said that, i would like to say why only couples should have all the fun! Isn’t valentines day, a day of love irrespective of just one relationship tagged as “couple”.

For me, its a day for all those who love “love”; whether its a love they posses for themselves, their siblings, parents, family, friends, or for the far away extended family. I believe, its for anyone and everyone who believes in love. So if i am single, why should i wait for somebody to make me feel special on a particular day. I know for a fact that i am special and all of us are special in one or the other way. My point is why can ‘t we treat ourselves with the best lover and that is ‘we’ ‘our self’. We are the ones who can be a best lover to our soul as in our hearts, deep down, we know our strength and weaknesses and still accept the way we are. I am 99.9% sure that nobody but only you could love and respect you more than anything else. I am proud of being me and i love being me and tomorrow i am gonna remind myself that i am god’s special child and i am loved by him. After all these random thought, i came to a conclusion that i should do this everyday and not just on valentines day. Hmm…we can love people around us and make them feel special in each passing moment  rather than just one day a year. Yes, small things makes a lot of difference and a lot of hope for the coming year.
I wish all the lovely people a happy journey of a valentines life. May your love go beyond the boundaries of mere one day and transcends through out life. ♡♡♥♥

‘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.

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.
