The rebound

Of all the emotions, things between here and there – The life never stops. Another new year, time flies, birthdays comes and goes, world around us keeps changing, seasons come and go but what really never changes is who we are. This morning sitting at my window looking at the sunshine take over the darkness it just ignited this feeling of being myself. The way I am and who I have always been – the box of cheerful happiness that is over shrouded with unwanted shadows of needless stress.

With tears in the eyes this morning, the real happy tears because of this little scene in the movie where this guy goes travelling with happy soul reminded me of me, to see – that was just a movie but a reflection of me that actually exists. I don’t like it the way world works with money but I know happiness exists in this money minded world. I got challenged by these shacks of existence where a man is to work his life off like a donkey so he can pay his bills, mortgage and kids. Yeah, the challenge around us is to balance these lives but do I really wanna do this ?? A question to myself. Not that these blogs are for the world but just my own reflection of thoughts that I would want to read again. Even the thoughts of blogs across the world seem so shit that people have no essence of what they share these days. I am not your stats collector shameless blogger of the year awards thing. I blogged longer than your existence of being online. For few who feel like challenging, go dig it out.

Going back in time, I would be celebrating my 5yrs promise this feb to a very special person that came in my life and has been there all these years. Just to myself, I am still able to be crazy enough to live my promises which I make on human bonds. Many people came, they enjoyed, they left, some moved on, some are still there – my friendship is not conditional, it is free & comes in life size package. I do love genuine people with open heart, open mind and smiling faces. Smile – that barely exists in this country – except the fake ones like the fake personality. To the endless chaotic mess of those people who crib a lot, I advice you to go travel, see the happiness with open eyes not your closed cold hearts that inspire you to shout that you have been travelling, even seen those people. Essence of real travel is not in your holiday packages. Essence of travelling is in real adventure when you know that you will go find the unexpected, may be good, may be brilliant and may be even worst.

Take pictures, make memories, make good memories, share your stories and just do it for sake of re-living it when you will be old one day. Memory is a good thing but we humans tend to forget so preserve them before you lose them. Your camera does not matter – this is a true advice – I had a very cheap 2MP camera and those pictures had the best of stories. Remember, when you get expensive camera and big lenses you may not take it where you would have taken your handy pocket camera unless you are mental like me. Camera is your connection to your past so is your siblings – love them before they move away or your hard drive crashes. That said – I am not sold by my camera but by the worth of that picture. Even now once been arrested with this craziness that beware how wild you love what you love and where it can take you. I say it again – do what you love and do it like you won’t get a second chance. Life is unpredictable and we are all perishable entities of this world just that our date of expiry is unknown.

To put on hold these thoughts and emotions would be like killing myself right now, as I am equally annoyed with liars who in the face of being famous – lie to an extent with their happy faces. Fuck off to those people – I am not your another customer of providing you with LIKE on wherever. I know it helps you give more visibility but you would never bother understanding what it feels like walking over others happiness so again think when you tell the world that you xxxxxx LIKES – your fake presumption is as good as your selling skills. People have tendency to be sheep these days – the real seems fake – the fake seems real. All I am going to say is – Like it when you like not like because you were following your hidden headless herd of mates.

To wind it all up again, don’t be here if you can’t stand it, don’t be here you can’t be real, don’t be here if you thought you are collecting your numbers, don’t be here if you can’t be friends, don’t be here if you can’t share a real smile. These blogs are my words and my feelings that will either make u go away or come back again. If you come back again then just remember we live for once so make it memorable one with your footprints.

Will be heading to SE Asia soon – need a change away from modern expensive lifestyles.

    I agree with most of the things you have written. Initially i loved it when anyone liked my post, but later i used to get more likes then views and then i understood that people don’t actually read what we are writing. And truly it doesn’t matter which camera do we have, what matters are the memories we make. I had a 1.3MP camera in my phone when i was in college, now i’ve a better camera but i don’t have those moments. The blurry images i took with my phone are more precious to me.

      It is hard to commend and apprehend as many would not understand the reason for this post. Thank you for your kind words and it indeed does show that people are all about fake things where as the real just dies somewhere in this run for life.

      Yup, the blurry yet unclear but undying memories make more sense to life.

    Such truthful words. When we lose all the “stuff” we surround ourselves with we get right down to the “who are we?” When we can honestly say that we know ourselves we are very fortunate. Posturing for others is merely our ego wanting recognition. As for travel…the world should be experienced, felt, nurtured and cared for. Experiencing each moment no matter where we are with new eyes and an open heart we will find joy. Joy in the moment and to last a lifetime. Thank you for such an honest post. It was refreshing to read.

      Thank you Melissa πŸ™‚ Appreciate when people have two minutes of their life to read something than merely liking it for sake of like.

      Feels warm to read your words too and indeed it all comes with time that we realise the depth of these emotions.
