Because, Giving Up Was Never An Option.

I need an escape. Escape from the boundaries. Escape from the limitations. Escape from the vibes that I have been feeling. I need an escape from my current life and my current situation. I want a world that is my own. The world that I dream about day and night. Where it’s just about me and my goals. The world where I don’t have any space for anyone except for a few loved ones. People I call my own.

I wonder if it’s just me occasionally, or are we all constantly being hit by these thoughts at some point of our life?

I believe it’s not just me having sleepless nights with these thoughts constantly running through my brain and getting on my nerves, right? It took me a really long time and quite a few sleepless nights to figure out where I’ve been going wrong. I know I’m not there yet completely but I also know, I’m half way there at least. Honestly, one of those nights is the one I’m writing this piece on.

And, you wanna guess what I’ve figured out? Wait, let me make it simple for you.

The only way I can make my self happy is by stop dreaming about it and start doing something about it. I have to do something about it till the time I find my happiness and internal peace. Till the time I don’t need an escape from anything and anyone. I want to make my life something I’m proud of. I’ve been given this one life, and I gotta make the most of it, everyday.

I have to stop focusing on things I know aren’t worth my time and I’d rather prefer spending some quality time with myself, family or friends. It makes me realize about the greater joy’s that I’ve been blessed with.  Things and people I know won’t leave my side when I need them the most.

I’ve also perceived the importance of self – love. For a fact, If you’re not happy with yourself and the way you are, there is no power in this world that has the audacity to make you happy for anything. You may think it’s impossible to be happy being yourself. Every day, it’s easy to wish you looked like or acted like someone else, or had the cushy job or great boyfriend that someone else has. However, until you learn to accept who you are and work to address your flaws, you’ll never grow as a person.

Here are a few tips that I practice myself:

  1. Listen to what your heart says is right.
  2. Eliminate toxic people from your life.
  3. Give yourself enough space and time to reflect.
  4. Accept yourself for who you are.
  5. Let go off your past and live in present.
  6. Breathe!

I know I have so much to look forward to in the coming days and in my life ahead. Because, giving up is never an option. Never was, never will be.

Life Update.

My life has been going really weird since a long time now. It’s like a roller coaster for all my emotions inside. One moment I’m genuinely happy and the other I’m genuinely sad. One moment I’m kinda depressed and the other I’m kinda okay. One moment I’m ambitious and the other I’m done with everything. And the worst part is, I can’t even explain anything to anyone.

I’ve always had problems in taking decisions because of course, I’m a Gemini but I’ve never felt this lost in my life. I’m clueless about my higher studies, career, job, relationships, goals, life and in short, EVERYTHING that should matter at this point of my life. Its more like I’m just going with the flow. Like a dead fish. I don’t want to be that person. I want to take my own planned and systematic decisions so that I don’t have to think in my mind that I settled for it since I had no other option. I want to be responsible for my decisions. But for now, I don’t see a solution to my problems.

I’m glad I have a handful of amazing friends in my life who helps me through thick and thin and since I’m very particular about people I want in my life, I know I can trust these people to every bit. These days, my conversations with my best friends, Y (girl best friend) and S (guy best friend) have become really intense and whenever I talk to them, It’s more like I’m talking to my own self for help.Y, we’ve known each other since 9 years now and she has been a constant part of everything since then. So she is a different case altogether and we’re inseparable. I usually talk to S at night almost everyday once we both are free and I’ve noticed that our conversations have gone to another level these days. I can’t imagine sharing my family issues with anyone but I’ve recently shared them with him while we were just discussing a few stuff. And it’s just been like 7 months that we’ve known each other but we connected with a click ever since we started talking. Also, then there is this guy I met in NLDS, U (dope faced chutiya) who came out of nowhere in my life and impacted it so much all of a sudden. The time I’ve spent with him in NLDS was something unexpected and he has now become an integral part of my life. I’m forever going to be thankful to AIESEC for that.

I have my final year university exams in less then 20 days now and I’ve not really started studying in a way I wanted to. I feel so distracted with so many stuff going on in my head and it’s a complete mess there. I really have to start studying seriously or else my results this time as well will be disappointing for me.

Apart from this, I’ve also been placed in a decent company for my life after graduation through college placements. It’s a Sales profile and Sales was the last thing I wanted to do in my life because I don’t think I’m convincing enough for people and so I’m not that happy with the profile. Nevertheless, I’m still really looking forward for that life and work as well. I’m sure I’ll learn something better and eventually get what I deserve the best.

Everything is so uncertain these days for me but I’m pretty sure that heaven’s got a plan for me as well. For now, I’ve just decided to work my ass off for anything and everything that I’m doing and leave everything on the universe to unfold at the right time.

It’s 4:00 am now and I should maybe just sleep and rest now since I’m anyway not studying.

Good Night! 🙂

 

Graduation Chills.

I can’t believe that I’m almost about to graduate in a month now. Even though I’m really looking forward for my new life to unfold, I can’t get over the fact that I won’t be attending college anymore. I’m having those chills already.

I used to love attending college almost everyday. For me, going to college was actually like starting an entirely new day, in literal sense. No matter how my mood was or if I fought with someone or whatever happened the previous night, going to college and seeing all my friends and laughing with them used to make everything seem alright.

It’s difficult to put in words every thought whirling through my mind and every feeling rushing through my body. I go from feeling extremely angry that it’s not going to be the same anymore, to feeling a swell of pride for everything that we’ve accomplished thus far. I’m depressed, thinking about life without them, and ecstatic, knowing what’s ahead.

All the friends I’ve made in these 3 years, they’ve been my lifeline throughout the college days. When I used to stay alone, they’ve been my extended family here in Mumbai and now when I look back at what I’ve gained, I feel proud to have them. I’ve been through a lot of ups and downs emotionally because of them as well but now when I look back, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is who came along the way and stayed till the end, no matter how difficult it has been.

It’s going to be hard not being able to run up to each other every day and share our crazy stories or rant about something that just happened during the previous class or just randomly start laughing looking at each others ugly faces or stuff each others food in the college canteen.

I know wherever we all go, we will still be in touch forever. Because, it’s really not that easy to forget all the memories that we’ve created and lived upon these 3 years. Although we won’t see each other everyday like we do now, but that will make the times we do see each other even more special.

So, I don’t want this post to be a sad one. Rather, I’m really looking forward to be a part of the success that each and every friend of mine is going to achieve in future. I’m going to make sure that I remain the same person I am for them and change only for better. I’m going to make sure to be by their side in times of crisis and otherwise.

Fairy tales have happy endings, right? Well, our friendship may be a happy one, but it will never have an ending, I promise to abide by from my side.

I’d like to end this post by some lines that I happen to love from a song called “Hai Junoon” from the Bollywood movie, NewYork;

Kabhi jo milenge raaste
Pal mein hi chamkegi hasi purani toh
Kaho kya kaho ge hamein
Kaise chupaoge nami yeh palko ki

Yeh bata hai kya hua
Hua hai kyon bataaa….
Yaroon !!

Venting Out.

So, I really miss the independent life that I used to live a year back, coming home whenever I want to, going out whenever I want to, wearing whatever I want to and doing whatever shit I wanted to do in my life and not taking my mom dad’s permission unless it’s a big decision or I need some extra money.

I miss the life I had in my 1st and 2nd year of college and every now and then when I think about those two years only one quote comes to my mind and it breaks me, the quote is “In the end you only regret the chances you did not take”. I feel like I could have done so much in those 2 years if by any chance I knew my life is going to take a turn and my mom dad are going to shift back to Mumbai in my 3rd year. Not that I don’t love them or that they don’t allow me to do anything that I want to. Just that, I start feeling way too responsible and bounded now when I have to go back home and stay with them.

My family is a middle class, down to earth “Marwadi” family where you’re defined by your “Sanskaar” or “Character”. But fortunately, my dad has been cool about a lot of stuff that I do in my life compared to other parents that I happen to know. He allows me to go partying late at night every once a while, I stay away from home for the whole day for some or the other work and he is still okay with it. My family members are the only people I could kill and die for.

But still, I miss that complete freedom that I used to have. Nobody was there to stop me from doing anything that I wanted to. And there are so many things left for me to do and so many people left for me to meet! My dad is going through some serious money crisis and so I and my whole family needs to keep a tight control over our expenses. And this is probably one reason why I feel bounded at times.

The kind of person I have become, I really don’t care about money anymore. And I don’t want to make my life about things. I want to make it about experiences and people who matter. I want to go on trips (be it solo or with someone), I want to explore new places, eat new food, meet new people and do possibly everything that can to make my life full of stories to share when I’m old and pale.

There is something about feeling everything so deeply and with so many emotions. You can’t express it. You can just feel it. And I’m that kind of person. I’m really bad with expressing any of my emotions. Like right now, I really don’t know what am I even feeling. I’m feeling something inside, some pain but I really don’t understand what exactly and how do I even define it.

I’ve been really off and irritated since I came back from an amazing conference called National Leadership Development Summit (NLDS) and I haven’t figured it out why! I feel that depressing feeling again in my life where I’m just lost. Clueless about myself and clueless about the world I am in.

I feel like a loser these days. I’ve become so quite and lost in my own world and I almost hate human interaction and social gatherings. I wasn’t like this when I was a kid. Life was so less dramatic at that age! And this world is a fucked up place to live in. People barely care about each other. Most of them are just pretending to.

I don’t only want to be pessimistic about my life. It’s not that bad. I have my happy moments everyday. And I smile. A lot. There are some people who genuinely want me to be happy. And then there are places that I go to and find my share of contentment. I call such places as my “Happy Place”. Whenever I go to my Happy Place, I forget about everything that’s bothering me and my life. These places are usually related to seaside or where I can feel the wind coming on my face and I just feel alive all of a sudden.

Okay, now I feel sorry for troubling everyone who read this but I really wanted to vent out everything today and thank you for bearing with whatever I have written here. I feel a little better now.

Much Love. XoXo

Why This Blog?

Before coming straight to the point of telling you all why I have started this blog, let me first tell you a bit about myself.

So, I’m a fun-loving, serious kind of girl, and my emotions depend on the kind of mood I am in for the day. Funny? Don’t worry, you’ll find me funnier (or weird, whatever you call it) as you continue to read what ever I have to share.

I am a 20-year-old, Indian, Workaholic and a Dance freak. I love keeping myself busy and when I’m tired with my life, I dance and take off my burden. I love people who are themselves inspite of their flaws and don’t pretend to be fake. And, and, and, the best part about me is, I LOVE EATING NEW CUISINES. A LOT.

Most people who know me think I’m shy and introvert. But, people who know me well, know for a fact that none of it is true. Yes, I do have my low hours and days. And you should probably LEAVE ME ALONE for a while! 🙂 I am a short-tempered person but I usually don’t take it out on anyone and hence, I WRITE it down! I feel better when I share my thoughts. A paper, pen and some light music are my best friends.

Enough about me for now and I’ll leave the rest on my posts for you to discover!

Now coming to the WHY of this blog, Since I don’t really take my emotions out, I prefer writing them down, not just to get rid of them but also to know more about who I am as a person. I want this space to be my space where I can vent all my good and bad days without having anyone to judge me. I will be sharing as much as possible about my day and my life here with maybe something positive I’ve absorbed in.

I don’t want to be clingy or creepy and not even a melancholic person because that’s not who I am. I am an independent and self motivated person, just that I need time for my emotions to settle and have to share my highs and lows with someone, usually.

If you like my blog, follow me. I promise not to annoy you with too many updates! So, come on. Follow me. Feed my fire.

Many thanks, already 🙂
