Life in randomness

Sometimesi wish that life would stop by...
And once in a while ask me..
How was i.
Somedays i would tell life to slow down a bit
And somedays to just walk past..
At times i wud ask if it wants to talk
Or just run fast.
Sometimes i wish i cud let life live me..
And i wud just walk by..Stop..look back and see...

confused?

There is a ‘self’ in all of us...that we hide from the world.. A side that could be vulnerable or strong. That philosophises or behaves stupidly. That cares a lot...or is too indifferent.
But just because we choose not to show it..does it mean we are fake..pretending to be someone we are actually not?just because we choose not to fit into every mould that is offered to us..does it mean that we cease to be our own self? It’s like saying what is not visible, does not exist. But there is more to us, more to our life than what meets the eye. And why must everything be for the world? For everyone to see, judge, analyse, comment..?
Like so many things that we like to do; there is a sense of self that we all like to preserve and protect. The entirety of life is spent in juggling between the acts of holding onto and letting go..whether its about things, events, people or even ourselves.
So then when do we actually become fake? When we decide to behave in ways that are contrary to our real selves.. ourse…

Sometimes

Sometimes all u need in life is a leap of faith..a leap towards yourself, your fears, anxieties, wants... With the faith that no matter what happens..you will be there to hold yourself..and even though this sounds very romantic..it’s a much more difficult task to attempt.
We are so busy leading a well structured, well planned life; that uncertainty scares us. And moving towards one’s own self, involves loads and loads of it!
As time passes, we become more and more cut off from our own selves...lose our identity, to a host of relationships and responsibilities.
But wouldn't it be better to find yourself in everything that u pursue..Every relation you make or break? Sometimes one needs to block the peripheral world..to be able to see what lies ahead of us..
The essence of life perhaps, never was and never will be ..to succumb to it..rather...to collect the bits..add our own colors..smoothen out the edges..and make our own masterpiece.

Because sometimes, life is not "as it happens"…

what do we most want from life..

what do we most want from life?
Is there something that underlies all the efforts that we make to build a life? what do we most want out of our life? for some people life is all about being successful,powerful,rich etc while some are happy with little achievements and the little things of life. and there are those who let life just happen on its own..not knowing where they are headed..but they welcome life with open arms..and embrace the destination that awaits them. we want so much from our life..but at the end of the day..its just that one things that makes all our struggles and achievements worthwhile...'happiness'.
isn't it? we feel happy when we achieve something? when we are applauded..when our wish gets fulfilled..when our efforts are rewarded.. we are happy when our loved ones are happy.. we are happy..when we are actually happy!
whats the point of being at the top..when you are not satisfied with what uv got?when it doesnt brong a smile on ur face...and all u can think of is …

opinion matters!

Opinion matters! Not everything is spelt out in a name you know.. As they say ‘never judge a book by its cover’. Just because a place or a person sounds or doesn’t sound  nice, interesting etc.  doesn’t mean that this is going to be the case.
Most of the times we just form an opinion based on what we have heard or seen, rather than our own experience. 
Whatever we choose to do or not do in life, our prior experience as well the one we may have in the future, plays a crucial role in determining what kind of association, we are likely to form. Like you go to a popular cafe, order the best drink available there and don’t like it! Not that they made it purposely bad, but because u have a different taste than the rest!
Or you meet a person whom no one likes ‘in general’ and ur interaction tells u that u like this person. May be there’s something about him/her that others are not able to see. Or you end up disliking the most liked person!
It’s not that we shouldn’t go by others’ opinions, but exp…
Its complicated!
Haven’t we all wondered why relationships are so complicated?not just romantic, but any relationship for that matter. I mean its weird..they start so simply..u like someone or u don’t like someone or ur just somewhere in between.and then as days,months and years progress, the dynamics just change. Sometimes the sensation, the ‘gut-feeling ‘ is just so right...yet things go ahead and take on a different color altogether! What changes? why does it change? why are some people always ‘so lucky’ with relationships..why do some people constantly struggle? Perhaps, the most defining aspect of any relationship is the fact that it involves individuals-two, three etc; who come with their own individuality, thought process, preferences, experiences, emotions etc and then begins a tussle-whether to let go of how one has been for majority part of one’s lives or to hold onto our sense of being for our dear lives! What is the ideal way of sustaining one selves and our relationships? rather…
