There’s never a wrong time to do a right thing!! There is nothing like the perfect time or the right time. The best time is now. Go for it!!! Just do it!!!
She was thirsty. Very thirsty. Every cell of her body was craving for just a drop of water. The sun was sucking every drop of water out of her, thus making the air more and more humid, while making her more and more water-deficient.
Her body was slowly turning fragile, pale and lifeless. Her beauty was withering away. The spring of her life had been transformed into autumn. She was losing all hope. She thought her end was near.
Suddenly there came a thunderous noise from the sky that said: “Don’t worry child, you will live. You are yet to bear billions of sons and daughters whose destinies have been pre-decided. Be patient. Life is on its way!! ”
And immediately, a drop of water fell off from the sky. Followed by another. And within the next few seconds, it was heavily pouring. The promise had been fulfilled. Her patience bore fruit. She was full of life again. The spring had returned. Mother Earth looked more beautiful than ever!
Happiness is elusive. It’s like that beautiful butterfly, that you can keep chasing tirelessly. It’s mesmerizing blend of colours keeps attracting you and you keep chasing it with all your might. But, it always manages to escape from your grip. As long as you keep running after it, you will never be able to hold it in your hands.
However, if you sit back and relax, and admire it from a distance, it will begin nearing you. And sooner or later, you will find it tapping gently on your shoulder.
Be it butterfly or happiness, it will keep eluding you if you keep chasing it… but if you wait patiently, you can hold it not just in your hand, but in your heart as well 🙂
I can spend my entire life thinking and never find a single reason to quit loving you Mom.
Life is not about how much you live while you’re still alive.
It’s about how much you love while you live when you’re still alive!!!
It’s amazing how she spent every moment of every day and night thinking about him and waiting for him. She forgot everything else except him. Her studies, food, friends, family, everything. She even forgot herself.
She craved for his sight all through the day, and when he stood in front of her, she ignored him. She kept a safe distance, and satisfied herself by stealing glances at him secretly. He was her cute little secret and she was totally happy with it.
But, secrets don’t live a very long life.
Just when she was convinced she will never meet him again, he began returning her glances. He smiled at her more often. Whenever she was out with her friends, he was always coincidentally around. He kept finding ways of trying to strike a conversation with her. But, she was satisfied with the distant bond they shared. Slowly she started making up her mind to talk to him but by then, he was disheartened. He turned his attention to others. She kept waiting for his signs but never found them again.
She secluded herself. She spent days and nights in his thoughts, waiting for him & crying over his absence. These cries once passed through the ears of her friend and her dream world shattered.
Her li’l secret was out.
The friend immediately approached him about her deteriorating condition. About her friend’s obsession of him, and he out-rightly rejected the idea of ever falling in love with her. He rejected even having thought about her ever.
Her world shattered around her and she could do nothing but watch helplessly. She was labelled as a dreamer and her love story… just a dream!
“I just don’t belong here. I wonder why the hell was I born in this family?!!! ” She muttered it yet again today in utter frustration.
I wish I could do something to calm her and assure her that everything is fine. To let her know that every family is imperfect. Because when people of different ages and perceptions live together and love each other immensely, they stop considering the concept of personal space and try to convince you to live your life according to their decisions and perceptions. They are not wrong, it’s just that their perception is not perfect as well. Just as yours isn’t.
Both sides just need to respect each other’s viewpoint and trust that the other’s intentions involve only care and love. Nothing else.
