Change? But Why?

I don’t know exactly why, but “Change” is that word, that phenomenon that freaks me out. Every single time.

When I was in school, I dreaded that a time may come when I had to change my school. Though necessity such as that presented itself before me, I hated even imagining the fact that I had to go to a new place, make new friends, adjust in a new environment.

When schooling was over and I had to join college, I was really NOT looking forward to the new journey. I mean, I knew I had to get educated and all that, but I was quite never ready to move to an altogether new place, new teachers/professors, new people and new subjects.

College over, and time to say Hi to work – I was going through it all over again. Each time I felt I was being pushed out of my protective shield and each time I felt vulnerable.

But that’s life – and this is how things will be, and I have no choice but to accept them. Time flies, and I have to keep my pace with it. Always have, always will.

But there is another form of “Change” I detest.

To ‘Change’ my priorities. To ‘Change’ the course of my life, without my wanting to. To ‘Change’ features of my being and appearance just to look good/impress. To ‘Change’ myself, and not be what I want to be. To ‘Change’ my thoughts and views. To ‘Change’ my goals. To ‘Change’ my likes and dislikes. To ‘Change’ who I am, and become who the world wants me to.

Very often, I come across people (I am sure, all of you too do) who give me “free advice”. They somehow seem to have, always, ready at hand, a complied list of “free advice” to be given – on – how to be, how not to be, what to do, what to not do, what will give me happiness, what will keep the society talking. Et cetera, Et cetera.

I totally agree to adapt, to adjust, to learn-unlearn, to be flexible, to correct myself when I am wrong, because these will help bring out the best in me.

But that does NOT mean I will change the course of my life just to suit the ways of the society.

I’d like to just go out and do my thing and live my life the way I’d like to, without having to always clarify or answer around for every decision I make. I wouldn’t want to do something just because every Tom, Dick or Harry is doing it, or because the society decides it is right.

Oh! How I wish doing it was as easy as writing this blog! Life would be so much simpler then.

Keep Going…

Alone in my beat,

With two left feet,

Yet, I see in the end, some light,

That’s strength enough for me to keep going right!

My Space..

Where I sit by the window and enjoy a cup of tea,

Or stare idly at the seamless sea,

Where I think of all I want and let my thoughts flow,

And into me, new rays of hope I sow!

P.P.S. For the record though, I hate tea and the sea. Have used it here solely for the rhyme 😛

I Seek…

A million questions on my mind,

What? Why? Who? When? Where?

The answers to them all, I hope I find –

They will decide, about what I should really care!

I Decide…

I decide what’s good for me,

I know what’ll make ME happy,

So, quit making me toe the line,

It’s time I step out and shine!

Why So Serious?

Shake your worries off, Laugh out loud

It’s good to sometimes let go and have fun,

Live every moment like it’s your last,

Celebrate life like a party, let all the bygones be in the past!

My first love, my soulmate

My best friend, my confidante

My each day begins with you and ends with you,

Books, What will my life be, without you?
