"Dark and difficult times lie ahead...Soon we shall all have to face a choice; between what's right..And what is easy..!! " - Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
|A funny version of myself from a very lovable friend|
It’s been quite some time since I wrote in this blog of mine. The reasons have been quite varied really. From fighting inner demons to other stuff I did not have any control of. But in the end it was I, who was the loser. I felt I have been cheating on my blog. It was because of this blog of mine, and its few dedicated readers that I am what I am today. It has played a huge part in building my career, and somehow I just ignored it. Not a wise thing to do isn’t it??
No matter what personal battles you might be going through, you should never lose yourself. But what happens when you try real hard, but your mind doesn’t let you win? When you try hard but words don’t come out the way you want to? When the environment you once cherished being in suffocates you to breathe freely and be yourself. It’s all in the mind they say. True. But not every time. However, what’s done is done. It’s time to move on.
And that is why I write this today. I remember the first post in my blog about a year and half back. I wrote a short note before launching into the real stuff. Back then, I had no idea how I would manage it, and how would I get the readers for it. But things fell in place. Because I tried. So, before going into the real kind of stories, sarcastic articles et al, I write this to lighten myself up for the bigger things. This is what you can call the beginning or the continuation of a new chapter.
These last three years have been unexpectedly extraordinary. I found myself in it and also my career. Found people who inspired me and many from whom I learnt a lot from. Spent the most memorable and exciting days of my life. And more than anything else, found two of the best people I have ever come across who completely changed my life in the most positive way without really intending to. I will forever be indebted to them. We are all professionals in our own worlds, but there are times when you forget to appreciate the kind of beautiful people you have with you who have made your life so much better and a happier place to be in. So here’s saying to both of them on how much I love them and no matter wherever I go the love for them would always run deep. I will make mistakes yes, maybe hurt them. But never do so intentionally and would always try and figure out how to be the good friend I can be for them.
Oh and there are others too. Many really. New people are coming in and joining too, who keep making my life extra beautiful and special. So please, be there with me. That’s all I want to say for now. It’s nice to be a little expressive sometimes. We are all emotional in our own ways. Some like to express it some don’t. Anyways, so I am feeling lighter already.
From now, I will try and be as regular as I possibly can. For myself more than anything else. It’s essential for my survival. To not lose my touch, and keep walking on the path that I once chose and love. To reignite my passion, which is there all right but somehow had simmered down. Its time to return.
The mind is made up. Some tough decisions would follow, and hopefully I would keep standing tall (no pun intended) at the end of it. My mind goes back again to a famous line from the Harry Potter pages which usually inspire me and goes like this, “What has to come will come.. And we shall all have to face it when it does...” So true and amen to that.
Now stand aside you mere mortals. The ‘Giant’ is rising again. …!!
