I usually try to keep myself happy. I smile often and easily. It doesn’t take much to make me happy. There have been such short springs of happiness in the last few weeks. But mostly it has not been great. Reason – You can read all about it here. Don’t want to bore you again with it 🙂
If there is one line that can describe what exterior I put up these fast few weeks, it is this line from one of Kelly Clarkson’s songs – “So together, but so broken up inside”. This has been a clear departure from last couple of years, where I was really happy with my place in life. So, nothing does really stay the same forever.
But if given a chance to relive the past week again, I would pass the offer in the blink of an eye.
My buzzword these days: “When going gets tough – the tough get going”
A new room! A room that disappears! Only three things allowed!
This one’s come straight out of the fantastic world of Harry Potter. What will be the occupants of this room – besides me?
The first thing that springs to my mind is a cabinet that can store thoughts/memories. It will serve as a one stop destination for all the ‘thoughts in passing ’and dilemmas that I can keep filing away. This way, it will all still be at my disposal, whenever I am ready to deal with it and take it all in, maybe make some of the thoughts actionable.
What if I could store some sleep? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to store your everyday quota of sleep in one bucket? Use that time to do all the other wonderful things – read, explore, experiment. And then come back, use the collected sleep – hours at your leisure.
And then, to allow doing the two things above, I would need a comfortable couch with an inbuilt music system. That’ll calm my nerves and put me at ease.
Here’s what others would like to keep in the mysterious room.
Which emotions can I not contain? Well, All of it.
Being emotional is one thing, and being able to express it is another. I don’t really know if that’s good or bad, but I have been told at quite a few instances that my face shows all that is going inside my mind. All the turmoil, emotions, mood swings and feelings manifest themselves freely on the mirror that my face is. Combined with gestures, that can be a handful. So much so that, quite recently somebody told me ‘You are so animated’.
I laugh heartily, cry easily, fly off the handle in a jiffy, apologise in a heartbeat and forgive without a second thought. This does not stem from the desire of letting people know what I feel about them. But probably from my desire to not pretend 😛
