Dedicated to I, ONLY...Part TWO !!

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - the real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life and how I chose to experience it...!

Now that I've crossed the one-third of my life's years, for the most part, I've found that being happy is the fastest way to reach the rest of my goals. I still get stressed about college, projects, relationships, job, money etc but being busy keeps me focused. Perhaps it's a generic thing to say, but I really don't have any regrets in my life. People are rarely angry with me (even if some are, they can't be for too long) and I rarely have a bone to pick with them. I think in these last few years, I've found out that (caution: cliché moments expected ahead in life) being myself and not giving in to others' perceptions of me has allowed me to discover what I really want out of life. I keep finding peace, solace and me above all , in the end. :)

I try, I am trying and I will keep trying till my very end :)

Do leave your views friends, this was my first kind of serious and personal views on my life. For those who haven't read the first part: Dedicated to I, ONLY...Part One !! :)

That was a serious and forlorn thought put forward.
And seriously being true to oneself..and genuinely portraying oneself always helps.

Hmmm...good actually means a lot sometimes to take out time n write smthn dedicated to ourselves....
However selfish v may smwhere most of us don't really noe wat actually v feel abt ourselves...n your analysis abt life was succinct but thought-provoking!!

Hafsah said...

u really do have a good approach towards life :) keep it up! life always have alot of ups and downs.but it only depends upon us to keep the ups high and the downs as shallow as possible, rite :)
best of luck with it!

Actually as I see it, Life is more like a preparation for something more to come. And whan u reach one check point, you realize you have so much more to prepare for. What eventually is Death. So you go through ALL the trouble, just to die. *sigh* :P

I guess I sounded depressed..! I'm Not. :)

S said...

@Neha .. Lol you really covered up well ! :P Anyways thanks for reading the posts and commenting only on one ;) and yes you too take care and god bless :)

@Meher ... Thanks for posting twice ;) and you got me right ... I'm trying to be just me !

@Jaunty .. Thanx for liking it and it's been a thought and life provoking time for me, for sometime and hence is the soul-searching !

@Hafsah ... nice name and equally cute you look :D ... and yeah you are right, I'm trying to maintain the rhythm of life ... I know I'm not a good listener, din't take good notes on life ... but yes I won't give up :)

@Pree-yaa ... Girl, u summarized my thought in those two lines .. well said, we struggle just to die and to see the end .. and NO, you don't sound a pessimist or depressed ... this is what life is all about !

@ALL .... Thank you's you who inspire me to puke the dirt out of mind ... don't have much to say ... These comments are the motivator to see life on a brighter note .. Keep 'em coming :)

Love you all :)

FINALLY here comes my comment... :P

Its really nice as well as a bit unexpected 2 see such a serious view over life by a person who is.. most of d time happy n sees d brighter side of life.. Dis is one of d reasons which makes u diffrent from others. :)
The happiest of people don't necessarily hav d best of everythng.. bt dey mak d most of everythng dat comes along their alwayz be as u r!!
Its gud dat u don't regret.. as at one point everythng u did was exactly wat u wanted & dat made u smile...:)
yes its true dat no one can be angry wid u for too long ( who else.., than me, knows dis better) still u make me angry every time.. :P

Dis is really a gud one..keep posting..n yes keep SMILING..
Best of luck 4 everythng..

Sourav, just be you ... never change ... you are not liked by all coz of your genuineness and blatant words ! Just make sure you never change .. and try and hope... the two magical words ... master them and you got everything going all positive in your life :)

Take care !

you want to be yourself ... and not give into the perceptions of others ?? but aren't those perceptions created by your own behavior to a large extent ? so what is it that you need to find ? your true self ? but your true self is made up of perceptions too ... what you think about yourself ... what you think you are ... what you expect yourself to be ... and so on !

what is it that you're trying to say anyways ? you're trying to find your self ? how can you do that without the people around you ? the world around you ?

somehow, the thoughts are very confusing ... going through a rough phase of life, ehh ?
