After a long hiatus, I am back. I feel very rusty now. My fingers tremble a little when I sit to write this post.

Past few months have been kind of a roller coaster ride – ups and downs, hair raising situations, scream your lungs out kind of situations, and then, ultimately the feeling of 'What happened just now?’

I am a firm believer of “Be yourself” in any and every situation. Life certainly is not a cakewalk all the time. Each one of us react in different ways  to various situations, each one right in their own way! I think most of the times, we blame the other person because we have no one to blame and blaming ourselves seems so not right. Sometimes, we blame the situation. Sometimes, we blame ourselves. But, there is no point in blaming anyone, be it the other person, be it the situation or be it yourself. I think I have blamed myself for the past few days. Coming to think of it now, I wonder why. I would have, anyway, done what I did or react the way I did. I have no regrets, no qualms. I sound too philosophical, don’t I? Darn! I told you I am a bit rusty!

My philosophy of life is very simple – “Be yourself. Do what you feel is right. Never hide your feelings, emotions, fears – make them heard. Fear what you have to. Get angry when you want to. Ask questions, expect answers and then accept them with an open mind. Don’t fear the consequences when you think what you are doing is right, or be scared, but always be ready to face the consequences. Break down when you want to. Be strong when you have to, if not for yourself, atleast for others who are near and dear to you; you will eventually learn to be strong for yourself. Don’t repent anything when you think what you did was what you would have done anyways. Never lose hope. Be yourself and be awesome. Never lie to yourself . Just be “you” for you are awesome!"

Uff! I get so philosophical sometimes. Funny. I can see parts of my life before my eyes. Nostalgia creeping in. Memories making their presence felt. I treasure them, however good or bad, because, they have been a part of me. No qualms, no regrets…just a few awesome memories. I, often wonder why a few things, a few people, a few instances don’t last forever in our lives. I think everything happens for a reason. I think every person enters and leaves one’s life for a reason – a reason unknown. Treasure them, miss them, but be happy that they did come and make you happy for that short period of time in your life.

Oops..too much philosophy again. Funny. By the way, I plan to write a book and name it “It’s funny!” My friend, the other day, observed that I find a lot of things funny (including the “pants on fire” kind of situations). Funny.

As I end this post, a few lines resonate in my mind. Lines from November Rain(Guns N Roses) and Lost(Coldplay):

'Cause nothin' lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain

(November Rain)

You might be a big fish
In a little pond
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause along may come
A bigger one
And you'll be lost

We will meet again…Till then, goodbye and happy life!!
