Small Wishes. Big Hopes. Prayers.

There are times when life prepares you knowing what you need to endure – Shut up and play along. Do not get too worked up and throw disgust on yourself. Whiners are never winners.

When you earnestly believe and wish for something – it is true that life will magically align stars and make it happen. On the way, friends may become foes and love may be lost. But, when IT happens, you will know it was all worth it.

The day when a part of your world looks at you in contempt and jealousy - thank your stars for giving you folks to beat up.

When every single hour becomes hard to push and your heart is consumed by grief or pain – push yourself to study for an exam or learn swimming/car driving/roller skates.  A fear to perform will happen and it will make you a better person.

Five years from now, none of this will matter. Absolutely nothing holds that kind of gravity, except family. Be nice to them.  (if it is friends for you, lucky you!)

Pray for endurance, intelligence and strength.  It is not fair to pray for a miracle, when you are lying around in a couch bag and feeling like a rotten tomato. The god is not a hairdresser or a magician.

P.S : This post is more of a reflection, a note to self.It is not really meant to be preachery and certainly, not advice.

  3. I'm sure most of us can identify with that. I went through a large part of teen life with the 'no expectations' philosophy, where as a principle, I would expect nothing towards me from another person - family or friends - and be pleasantly surprised when it did happen. It was sort of peaceful in that there was less disappointment & anger, but also sad in a way to stifle the hope that the world is a good place.

  5. "On the way, friends may become foes and love may be lost. But, when IT happens, you will know it was all worth it.'- Sometimes this realization strikes much later! But it is all worth no matter when and how the realization strikes! :)

  13. You know what? Sometimes I wonder when on death bed, would the entire life matter?

    That five year logic, is so freaking right. It all settles down. Like a Tsunami.
