I have Changed..!!

Sitting by the window pane..watching the raindrops fall..

Several thoughts flash in my mind..

And they make me think that I have changed..!

I used to love my friends a lot..

They meant the entire world to me..

But soon I found out their true feelings..

And heard them speak ill about me

So I gradually stopped caring for them..

And the conversation melted down to just some formal talks..

And then they all say that I have changed..

If that’s what you call a change..

Then, YES I HAVE CHANGED..!

I used to poke my nose in every trifle matter..

Used to give loads of unwanted suggestions and advise..

(because I really thought them to be my own)

Nobody took me seriously..and nobody seemed to care..

And now, I don’t utter an unwanted word..

They say I am not interactive and I don’t speak my thoughts out..

And then they all say that I have changed..

If that’s what you call a change..

Then, YES I HAVE CHANGED..!

I used to think about others before thinking about myself..

Used to care about people a lot..

But, sadly, I could never get that concern in return..

Infact often got to know facts from others, which I expected to be informed first..

So I became silent..never spoke out my plans well..

And then they all say that I have changed..

If that’s what you call a change..

Then, YES I HAVE CHANGED..!

Because I was trying to change the entire world to suit my own needs..

But now I am learning to be wise..

So I am trying to change myself..

I am trying to have faith in the thought that says..

“Its easier to protect your feet with slippers..

Than to carpet the entire Earth..”

And so..

When they say I an garrulous and infuriating,

I keep mum..

When they say I don’t vent out my opinions..

I can’t and I actually don’t want to..

But still I try to..!

When they find a fault in me..

I try hard not to give them another such chance..

I think I have stopped living my life my way..

And I am trying to live it their way (silly me)

I now say things, which I otherwise wouldn’t say..

I now do things, which I otherwise wouldn’t do..

I now speak to such people, which I otherwise wouldn’t talk to..

I am now in company of such people, which I otherwise would never think of..

What I get to hear is that I have changed..

If that’s what you call a change..

Then YES, I ADMIT  I HAVE CHANGED..

23716_484049764978920_23401790_nLife takes a way a lot from us,
But it indeed gives us a lot more in return..
We often fail to realize it today,
And overlook that we get so much to learn..!

Eventually when we have happy days again,
we do realize, that after all life isn’t that bad..
And the day we do, we laugh at our own foolishness,
And thinking about it, we again become sad..

Of ‘course life is not easy,
But who, ever, said it would be..?
Getting through the tough times bravely,
And smiling throughout is the real key..! :)

Learn to see the brighter side of it today..
Live it, Love it..and more so Value it..
Stay strong during those troublesome times,
And you will soon realize that Life is WORTH IT :)

Be thankful for all those :

NIGHTS that turned into MORNINGS..
FRIENDS who turned into FAMILY..
DREAMS that turned into REALITY..
LIKES that turned into LOVE..

Each day I am thankful for:

NIGHTS that turned into MORNINGS,

friends that turned into FAMILY,

dreams that turned into REALITY,

and likes that turned into LOVE.

Past – is gone,
Future- you cannot predict..
Today – It is God’s gift..and that’s why its called PRESENT.. :)

Live it..Love it..and Life will love you back even more :)
Lets begin the week with this positivity and life will seem to be easier and brighter :)

Keep smiling and keep shining :) :)

THANK YOU :)

This day reminds me of the day when I first thought of writing my own blog..I had several notions in my mind..my brain cells were literally grilled for long, when the urge to write led to the birth of my blog baby..8th August, 2013 at almost the same time of publishing this post..and here I am..exactly 1 month ahead..Yes! my blog baby is one month “young” today (and not old) 😀  Here is a BIG THANK YOU to all my friends who read my insane poems and encouraged me write a blog..something so awesome..and now the aura of insanity has grown..for I now have a wider audience..! 😛

thank-you1

To be honest I did not really have any high hopes..Yes I had an idea that I could write (pretty well as per my friends) but I was still skeptical..I am glad that I took the decision and came up with something that is now an important part of my life..I love both writing and reading..have met some really beautiful writers here.. 🙂 🙂

During the first few days, whenever I saw the number of “blog hits” and “followers” on the blogs I read, I was really fascinated and wondered if my blog would ever receive such appreciation..Its kind of a parental feeling where you expect your child to grow up, go to school/college and become successful..

Today after a month, I feel delighted..ecstatic..after around 25 posts, 80 followers and 1570 views I feel happy.. 🙂  more because I have started to give writing more importance which had taken a back seat in my life..it is just a start..I have a long long way to go and I am already loving the people I meet on my way.. 🙂 🙂

Here is a BIG THANK YOU to all the friends and fellow bloggers..for such a warm welcome..I feel glad to have met some beautiful souls..it has been a beautiful journey so far..Keep writing and keep reading!! 🙂 🙂

Cheers! Love you all 🙂

P.s- The number of smileys used in this post is nothing compared to the wide grin on my face.. 😀 😀
