And you really do have worth

Posted on

I roll up my windows while driving to avoid people’s abuses from nearby cars. It does not stop people from abusing… I just can’t hear them. Mumbai’s traffic is weird:

  • Traffic policemen might fine you without any reason… you cannot argue especially if you are not Marathi. Just pay up and leave with your license intact
  • People cross the road when the traffic light turns green for the cars to move
  • People walk on/near the road… never on the footpath… they believe they own the streets and not even a car can succeed in getting them off

Soon.. I will drive with the windows rolled down… so I can abuse the other drivers.

Today I got thinking; “Where is life heading???”… I know… I know… there is lots happening… lots more to be done… but strategically… where is it heading? Is this it? Get a job… get married… have kids… grow old… and die??? Is that all? I wanted my life to be exciting, adventurous… anything but ordinary.

Archana had tagged me on a note on FB… here it is… I don’t know who has written it:

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul…

And you learn that love doesnt mean leaning and company doesnt mean security

And you begin to learn that kisses arent contracts,

And presents arent promises,

And you begin to accept defeats with your head up and eyes open….

With the grace of an adult not the grief of a child…

And you learn to build your roads for today…

Because tomorrow’s grounds are too uncertain for plans

After a while you learn that…even sunshine burns if you get too much

So plan your own garden,

And decorate your own soul…

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers…

And you learn…

That you really can endure…

That you really are strong…

And you really do have worth!!!
