Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

Lost and Found

I suppose sometimes it takes getting lost to enjoy the joy of being found – Tricia Goyer

I am sure you will accept when I say day to day stress full professional life, family life and the balancing act between them is taking a very strong toll on each one of us. We all are somewhere somehow lost in the race of current day that nothing at all makes an appearance in the busy brain for us to pause and breathe. Now this is how a pessimist thinks! 

But then if we really tweak our thoughts a bit isn’t it evident that if you don’t get lost, there is no chance of being found? Yes call me optimist or a nut case or a practical head, but it’s a hard fact that neither you can seize time nor the same things which caught your interest in childhood, teenage would interest you at present. With preferences, the definition of happiness change as we grow old and according to me that’s what the beauty of life is. 

A hectic day at office where I am racing with time to catch up with tons of emails, meetings and struggling to meet the deadly target, I am literally lost in the world which is no man’s favorite. While in this race a pop of “Hello” from a dear friend, A little funny spelling mistake in email, little fight for delegating tasks, secretly reading a funny forward message and controlling to burst out into laughter are certainly sweet encounters which we choose to ignore at that point of time  

And a day at home which you think is relaxed time but some souls like me can be restless out there also. I easily lose myself in tidying home, daily up keep, dreadful weight management, meeting expectations and in setting expectations. I am sure there are tons of moments like laughing at our own stupidity, gossiping about things which totally wouldn’t make any difference to anyone, smirk at the way loved one fall asleep midst an action movie are those wonderful little things in the due course of day which would have silently passed.

Well a discussion with friends about finding ourselves made me put across these thoughts here. All or most of us do various things to find ourselves, to find an escape out of our stressful life. But then if you just pause for a minute close your eyes I am sure you will see that all that was lost will be found again. Meaning, when you try to find your selves it will be actually found only in those moments in which you lost yourself.   

Now I will wait to hear from you that how wonderful it is when you lost yourselves in something and eventually ended up finding yourselves there!

We hardly change.The child in us,the teen age we loved,the young womanhood we cherish all remain there concealed and seemingly lost amid the hurry burry of daily life.It just needs a spark to come out like an innocuous remark,a friendly pat,a tiny hug,a hi from friend or a visit to parent's home.
The memories are not lost but just retrieved. Nicely written

E line tumba satya..."when you try to find your selves it will be actually found only in those moments in which you lost yourself" Slowly we are getting disconnected with the real world and with our real self. Your post is an eye opener to all of us..:)

A sweet post indeed Ramya! Self discovery is an ever going process, but the key to happiness lies in living in the moment without getting flummoxed with environment around! Though tough, but can be achieved with practice:)

ನಿಜ ಮೇಡಂ,
ಎಲ್ಲೋ ಕಳೆದು ಹೋದ ನಮ್ಮನ್ನು ಇನ್ನೇನೋ ಖಂಡಿತ ಹುಡುಕಿ ಕೊಡುತ್ತದೆ.
ಜೊತೆಗಾರರು, ಸಂಗೀತ, ಬ್ಲಾಗು, ಮುಖ ಪುಟ ಅಥವಾ ಸುತ್ತಾಟ ಇದೇ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡುತ್ತವೆ.
