Is this year turning out to be as you’d expected?
To be honest, at this moment as I sit to write on this particular topic, I can hardly recall what it was like on 31st December, 2013 at 12 midnight. What were my expectations? Did I make any resolution for the New Year? I cannot get a glimpse of where I was that day!
Why my mind is blank? Am I growing old? Or am I too excited to put my thoughts in words? Yes, I’m impatient to let my fingers dance through the keypad of my laptop to come up with some crazy stories in few minutes, then read them and feel content that my thoughts did not get lost in my mind but could make its way into reality.
And here I realize, what I’m doing at this moment is something unexpected that is happening this year. Long back my best friend: my life partner suggested trying our hands in writing. Together, we did come up with few articles and a couple of research papers that were published in national dailies and journals. But soon things seemed to take a U-turn. Unaware, we lost this track, probably because we were over burdened with responsibilities of work and family. We seemed to ignore this child in us that was trying to find its way into this world but was put to rest before it could flourish.
But somehow, we had to polish our writing skills so that our motive of reaching out to millions of people all over the world, sharing our crazy ideas, thoughts and dreams, is fulfilled. ‘Our mind is like a garden of thoughts’. I say this because, hundreds of thoughts fill our mind and if these thoughts are not taken care of; sooner or later they die. Therefore it is necessary that the thoughts that cross our minds are not lost but captured somewhere. And what can be a better place than creating your own website and blogging your ideas!
Truly, trying our hands in blogging is something unexpected for us this year. Wonder what more is to happen in the days to come. But whatever is to come by is unknown. Hopefully it will be for the better, for us and for all. What we need is a positive outlook so that we always put our best foot forward but be prepared for the worst as well. We can actually just wait and watch. Expectations lead to disappointment. When we are aware of this fact, why expect? All we can do is give our best and see life offer us with good things in bountiful.
