Upping and Downing!

  • Nov. 16th, 2010 at 6:40 PM
In too deep, Brood
Life is riddled with ups and downs. Most every 'up' is followed by a 'down', though sometimes, an 'up' is followed by more 'up'. The same goes for 'down'.

There are a number of things that have shaped me and my life. Some of them agonizingly obvious, some not so. Yet, when an old memory comes floating up from my past, I cling to it. It might be a happy or sad one, but either way, I find myself helplessly clinging onto it.

Some of these things are harder to let go of, but eventually, the tide turns and you find you're better off today, than you were the day before. Ordeals you might have survived at first as a younger human being sometimes grip and haunt you longer than necessary when they eventually pop up in due course of time. Some of them hurt, some put you into an emotional state of numbness that grips your heart and pumps it at a different pace. Some of them just leave you breathless with that lasting afterglow that we've come to associate with some other things in our lives.

There are times when the past looms its seductive head over you, but sooner or later, you learn to push it aside and move on. I've been there a million times, and though their effects still linger on and treat me as one of their own, I know I am what and who I am because of what these memories are to me.

To the good times, Amen!

I'd want to believe in that too :), after all what is life without these experiences?? Its all of these collective experiences that makes up life. If someone called me a foolish, sentimental fellow, so be it!!!

lol! If someone called me a foolish, sentimental fellow, I'd very likely find some rain and cry in it. Heck, I'd do that even if no one called me anything. :)

I was just pondering some of this lately myself...
I'm tormented by the desire to find rhyme and reason to it, a pattern or something, even though I know that there is none.

Your reaction to my comment in /.
Many thanks for your kind comment. I have been told that my mouth is faster than my mind.....I can live with it. When I die I hope it will be while trying to make someone laugh...or smile. Can't remember who said the following but it's so true...: We are who we are because we were who we were. Nice, isn't it.
Live long

Weird, lately I've been feeling more and more distant from my memories. None of what I thought mattered before, seems to matter any more. All those events that seemed to hold such a tight grip on my mind, seem vague and pointless now. I suddenly can't talk in terms of cause and effect or draw a relationship between my past and present. Damn, it's official, I'm depressed. S#!t.

Ups and down
Yes in the ups and down of life there come such moments when a man completely dissapointed, but he should face difficulties with great courage. And don't be sad. these are the temporary moments od sadness and dissapointment. After this there will be pleasures..:)

Dear Abhimanyu,

We, a group of young zealous guys, reach out to you with an idea on our minds and a vision in our eyes of creating one unique platform where people publish whatever they want – poems, stories, real life incidents, humour, motivational articles and anything else that they’d like to share.

Our platform, INSCRIBE, will publish your work and help you reach out to exactly the kind of readers you’d desire. Keeping the interface simple, minimal and user-friendly, we would make your experience of reading and writing extremely easy and comfortable, while allowing you to connect with like-minded users.

As we prepare to launch our venture on the internet, we approach a select list of people who have inspired our generation in their own ways and have been patronized by the social media communities, to share any of their works with us for our inaugural round of publications. We believe your work would create a great first-time experience for the users of INSCRIBE and encourage them to read and write.

Please mail your work or link to your blog at:
submit@inscribe.io

Thanking you,
Best of Regards
Akshay Choudhry
Team Inscribe
