" It's the same land, the same sky, but perceptions differ
it's the same road, the same turn, but journeys differ. "

Monday, 8 April 2013


life's like a train. a train constantly running around, all over places, with people exiting and entering at various terminals and junctions; people whom you forget, people whom you remember for some time and people who leave an imprint, an impression on your mind. i once read somewhere :
                  "it's the same earth the same sky but perceptions differ...
                         it's the same road, the same curve but journeys differ...."

this particular quote now stays on my Facebook page permanently. it's so true! all of us are on a perpetual odyssey, the journey of life, taking you to places, landscapes, people.... the only fact that differs us is probably our train. may be we are on different tracks. may be we boarded different trains. some opt for flights too, some ships and some prefer road journeys. :) to each his own. everybody has a struggle to conquer, a dream to achieve, a responsibility to bear, a hobby to indulge in and people to live with, please some and annoy some! life's is such a roller coaster ride! the tracks, your train is running on, can turn any time! to the left, may be right or who knows a u-turn too! it's all about time. it's all about capabilities. and it's all about your spirits! what looked like a happy, carefree, stress-free childhood, transformed to become a hectic, wandering, philandering teenage! and it went on to become a confused, a mysterious youth! now when i stand here at this crossroad of my life, at this junction where i have to change my train since this one goes till here only, i am absolutely unaware which next to board! career! this junction is career! every person has so many dimensions to his/her personality. each dimension can go on to build a perfect base. but then, you cannot be a master of all. you need to decide. now is the time. i am a simple, a routine bubbly girl, only 22 and i feel a little stressed now! school, college, everything is over now! those fun days, now have a counterpart in struggling days! success and struggle do go hand in hand after all. success comes to those who are all for it, up with their arms and strength! 

my tragedy is no peculiar. as ordinary as a dog on the street, i too, am struggling, coping with my wants, my needs and my desires, me deeds and my dreams. i am not disillusioned, just a little translucent. may be this thin sheet of film lies because i fear. i fear about the consequences. about the reactions! response from those who expect something else from me. do i really need to please all? do i really need to kill my dreams and board some trains just because people around me want me to be on that train and enjoy the new journey? well, who knows whether i'll enjoy that journey or not? who knows whether i'll be wanting to continue that journey or not! no one. other than me of course! it's me. it's time now. it's now or never! i see myself going somewhere. i vision myself, happy and gay there, my world full of smiles, smiles that emanate from the satisfaction, the contentment i would be having within..... yes.. i see it..... i only need to toil a little .... and my dreams sure don't come cheap! they require attention, hard work, the lust in my eyes for them and of course determination. am i up for it?? :) i am all for it! :) come what may, i'll be there some day..... some day very soon........ insha allah!


  1. Very nice post. I used to struggle a lot with wanting to please everyone. I still do at times but having made it to the age of 43 I've come to realize that no matter how hard I try, I cannot be in charge of other's happiness. So, it is best to watch out for mine and do what is in my heart. Thanks for sharing this! And good luck on reaching your dreams!!!

    1. hey sherry! you are right. pleasing others and being appreciated does give one a high but then it's transient. please as many people you want to but that eternal happiness, the one that is felt within, will only be there when you focus on your wants and dreams rather than what people around you want from you..... so live for yourself. it's important. :)
