“I see Fire” playing at the backdrop, and I, trying to keep thoughts at bay. Breathing in, breathing out!! In the company of my solitude, it’s hard not to reflect back on life. Mostly because I have done enough stupid embarassing things that I might end up putting my head in the oven. 😉 Yet, I reflect, braving the images of past.
Did I laugh till I had cramps in my stomach? Did I made someone else smile? Did I love till my heart ached?
Present sometimes misleads you, about life, about yourself. And the uncertainty of future, is as always, a spoilsport. It’s in those moments, a flood of those happy memories would keep you warm. A consoling reminder that nothing lasts for ever – specially the sad days.
|Did you see? Did you see… what my Photoshop guru of a friend did to the reflection?|
Reflect back on your life and remind yourself where you derived all the strength from. There would be moments when you had fought every single being to follow your heart. Feel that pride again. Feel the pride of trusting your instincts. Remember those who love you, no matter how freakishly insane you are. People who still believe in love is blind – keep them close. Because they are innocent and naive, and strangely, trust blindly too.
The reflection will give you a true picture, of what you are, why you are what you are. Maybe understanding the past is a stepping stone to move forward.
The troubled times are unavailable, so drink plenty of water, stretch your limbs and along with Ommm, chant “This too shall pass“.
Why this collection of random philosophical thoughts today? Well, this weekend was a reflection-sort-of weekend.
A happy happy song for all of you.
