simple joys of life....

Sometimes I simply wonder at these simple joys of life. It's amazing how these small things have the dexterity to fill life with simple unadulterated pleasures. Ah the simple things of life.....!

Simple things like a morning dream which just doesn't let you open your eyes. Even if your mind rings the alarm, and your subconscious mind which was the source of the dream finishes the night duty and goes for a nap, you forcefully shut your eyes and wish the dream to continue for a little more time. At times your fully conscious mind even manages to imagine a sequel to the dream, and at last when you reluctantly lift your lids with a smile on your face, you find the morning to be one of the most beautiful ones.

Wonders these mysterious phenomenon called dreams can do.....all of sudden they can bring in your vision a face from a fading memory, which you haven't seen for months, or sometimes even years. And now it's so vividly in front of your eyes, you can notice the minutest details, the shine in those eyes, the tilt of those lips, that tiny scar on the brow, you can hear your name being called in that particular voice again, and sometimes you can even smell the so very familiar intoxicating smell which many a times you have consciously craved for but never found a similar one. You enjoy every bit of it, you cherish every moment, you savour the beauty of that dream.

Who would like all this to end? but all good things have to come to an end.... but they leave us with a renewed memory of moments which actually never existed but still were capable enough to beautify your morning ....:)

exam fever again !

One morning you wake up and realize that you have two weeks to go to execute your idea and turn your imagination into a reality, what are you suppose to do then?

Well.... i personally remind myself about one the quotes of Swami Vivekanada "Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success" ( what an idea sirji !) So, basically that is what I'm up to now a days. Though the commitment of that intensity is difficult to attain, and personally I at times am very poor in keeping the commitments, but least I can do is give my best shot, they don't say it without any reason that "reach for the stars, so if you fall, you may land on a cloud" and I tell you, cloud no. 9 isn't a bad place to be on, isn't it?

So, the entire life of mine has been just a series of examinations,( i think everyone's is that way some or the other sort of exam), one after another and another one after's a vicious cycle, but then I must agree that there is a thrill in it ( human nature you know.... always finds a thrill in danger and in pains too at times). Every time it approaches you, it spills a sort of nervousness around you, then at times it gives you those wonderful 'adrenaline rushes', where you burn with an idea, the fire within you rises high and you are ready to get consumed and give your life and soul to it. Then at times it may be a little depressing too. So, basically it brings all sorts of emotions and makes you feel alive and kicking ( that's how I'm feeling right now)

So, time to get back to the idea and work on it.

Trying times will come and go.They come with a hope that, on the other side of this bridge lies the most cherished victory, and they leave us with an experience, good or bad, the adjective doesn't count as much in the long run as the word 'experience' itself counts.

So today when I again face one of those trying times and the going the gets tough, I think of the sweet taste of victory, the satisfaction of a proper try, the valuable lessons of defeat, and the most worthy of all things the experience itself, which will make me stronger and wiser and give me the satisfaction that I've lived it all well.

Someday, somewhere, at some point of time I'll close my eyes and say to myself it was all worth it.
