True love, I think is, when someone does very little things to surprise and delight you, to make you feel special, with utmost love and care at every given opportunity – something that you would have just not even fancied.
I want to live a life with absolutely no regrets. I want to enjoy every bit. Every moment. I want to make the most of this life – a satisfactory life at least.
Towards the end I do not want to feel remorse thinking… Oh! I should have done this, I should have done that…I should have spent a little more time with my loved ones, or that I should have expressed myself a bit more, or could have spread more love and joy, or may be I should have traveled there, explored places, met more people, should have tasted that exotic food… or read that book under the sun over green pastures, or stared endlessly at those twinkling stars in the night-time… etc etc. I don’t want any space for could have and should have.
With conviction, I want to fulfill all my dreams, all my wishes, desires and aspirations. Whether I will be able to do so… I don’t know as yet. At least I would know I tried. I attempted. Rest all depends on destiny. Strange, no? How we are all enslaved by the thing called destiny. But, nevertheless hopes should not die, and that’s exactly what fuels our spirits.
So, go ahead, make a list of all that you wish to do…and fulfill them. In the meanwhile, I am going to work on mine. 🙂
As the saying goes, people come into your life for a reason, in my life too, they came in with a reason. I have been mostly fortunate to have met good people in every walk of life, except a few of course, who have left some bitter taste. Otherwise, the ones, who have showered immense love and care on me, I do not forget a moment to feel grateful towards them, and pray to God for their well-being always. We at least owe them this much. No?
So today I specially remember this person, from my earlier company, a colleague turned friend, who out of her care and generosity, knowing I skipped lunches, would most of the times, pack lunch box for me from her home, so that I could at least eat a morsel or two at my desk. We were not the bestest of friends, nor we seemed to talk about anything under the sun, but we were very comfortable with each other at workplace. :-)And yes, she also knew I loved sambar(a medley of vegetables & lentils) and rice, so she would make them specially for me and bring it to office, and what an amazing cook she is.
Here’s to dear D, thanks a bunch for all your love and care. I do cherish all those moments and shall always do… God bless!” 🙂
