Cherish Little Things in Life.

I received a text message from a friend yesterday asking me if I ever thanked my friends for their smiles, hellos, and taps at my back, etc while she thanked me for the same. These may appear little things to one but if one notices, it certainly adds value to one’s life and makes it cheerful. No matter how introvert you are and how reserve you stay, you cannot imagine life without people around you, sooner or later you do feel the need of speaking to someone even if it’s a short conversation or just a hello. However, it entirely depends on you if you cherish these minute moments in life. If you do, you will certainly be happy. And if you don’t, then you will be haunted by the joyless shadows. Hence, try celebrating the little things in life like a stranger’s smile, a song sung with friends, or even a morning walk in the University.

Sense of Belonging.

I always describe myself as an explorer on a way to decipher the untapped, bitter and seraphic realities of life whenever I am being asked to introduce myself. I believe life is a never-ending journey of self-exploration and while one continues to explore himself, he certainly is living a life. As soon as s/he ends the travel of self-discovery, s/he will start finding his/her life a meaningless one. The meaning of life may be different for different individuals but it usually revolves around people you care and with whom you share a certain sense of belonging. A sense of belonging forms the basis of the meaning of life. For instance, we belong to our beloved parents who wish to see our success and therefore, they emphasize on our studies. Since, we belong to them, we do consider if what they want and start considering a sound career and the attainment of education as one of the aims of life. Similarly, for some, keeping their loved ones/spouse happy could be the meaning of life as they feel a sense of attachment to them. While there may be a lot of meanings that could be derived, I am still in quest of one.

The Tender Moments I Yearn for

The endless treasured talks at night
And the silent solemn promises
The winsome words to make things right
And the comforting seraphic caresses
The morning missives and the goodnight lines
The quixotic hugs and embraces
The cute little cards and the odorous nosegays
Filled with earnest and heartfelt praises
The eternal waits, the never-ending times
And the fondly glance and gazes
The trivial tiffs and the temper tantrums
The acts of mischief and rollicking phases
The long, long drives and shopping sprees
The leisurely walks along the beaches
The heavenly halo and a hand to squeeze
Are the missing elements being needed
