Maybe not

Maybe one day, all these thoughts will be reality. Maybe not with the person I’m imagining at present, but surely with the right person.

This in itself soothes me.

I just really can’t control my mind. Us getting another chance in this lifetime is next to impossible anymore, but I can’t stop myself. I keep on creating happy memories I know might never happen.

And that’s okay. I’ll hold on to the thought that it might not.. not with him.. But with the person written in God’s plans, it surely will.

I think I can settle on this for now.

“The secret of success is happiness. The shocking fact is that you can control it.”

Genuinely happy for the 563 people who haha’d this post. Hope you know you’re very lucky you don’t have to do this. 😊

Also, I wonder how many from the 3,500+ felt that familiar sting just by reading it? Hope I could send each a virtual hug. 🙃

TyL!

I’ve finally come to terms with three people who have made the biggest impact in my life.. all three today!

One.. Sat in his car and spent hours alone with him.

Two.. Messaged and invited her to our friends’ next night out.

Three.. Breathed the same air as he again after all those years.

Emotional barriers have been brought down. All the pain and anger that haunted me for the longest time have finally turned to dust and danced with the wind. It wasn’t even awkward at all. I can’t explain the feeling, but thank you, Lord, for this day.

This friendship’s making me realize how killjoy I am most times and how much better it is to just live, say yes, take risks, be happy.

Me First

I think I now know how I’d start my 2018 right.

  • Take risks
  • Be honest
  • Live in the moment
  • Say yes
  • Be happy
  • Love freely
  • Take chances
  • Open up
  • Be brave
  • Have fun
  • Give time
  • Be me
  • Decide for me

3 Idiots

Two years ago, the first and best Bollywood movie was introduced to our class by our Com Skills 12 professor. Here is the film review that I submitted a day after.

3 Idiots

This is the most illuminating and most inspiring movie I’ve seen so far. Impossible as it may seem, it contains lessons concerning almost every facet of life. It began with the matter of indecent execution of power. Students in higher levels make freshmen do ridiculous actions on their first night in school as a form of showing respect to them; Professor Viru gives wrongful charges along with calling or writing to the parents of students whose attitude he does not like. Maddening, it is. But sadly, most could not do anything other than following and accepting. Another is regarding the former matter’s most terrible result: students commit suicide. The movie had made it clear that the most common cause of that act is blurred thoughts due to mounting problems they’re suffering from, be it the heartless professors or their families’ expectations.

Writing on this sheet of paper would be inadequate if I will enumerate every moral I learnt from this film. However, if I am to be asked what the best subject was, my answer would definitely be about making decisions which will lead to the pursuit of our own dreams. We should not live out others’ aspirations. Strive to be the best because you want to become the best, not because other people want you to.

“You don’t have to chase success. Achieve excellence and let success chase you.”

was one of the motivating lines of the main protagonist. Regrets are always the last thing you will realize. Listen to what your heart is telling you. Follow where your feet are taking you. Think about your passion. Improve it; Become the best out of it. In the end, it will and always be yourself who will be the happiest. Remember: What you sow, you shall reap.
