Where did it all go?

There was a time when you were solitary by myself; There was a time when the only person you had to open your heart to was panda. There was a time when the only time you opened your mouth is when teachers asked you something; There was a time when people were not interested in knowing you; There was a time when you did not care what people around you said about you; where did it go? There was a time when you were your own best friend, your own confidante, when you didn’t need anyone. Where DID it go? There was a time when you didnt hurt anyone; where no-one got injured because of you; when no-one felt sorry because of you; when no-one grieved because of you; WHERE DID IT GO?

Why? Why do you want that time back? Why do you to relive those memories? Coz that was the time when you were really happy. There was a time when you were solitary by yourself, but you were happy. There was no-one to break the peace in you; no-one to wave those emotions except yourself; no-one who could perturb you the least; except yourself.

Why is that now you cant live without company? Why is it that now you need people around you? Why is it that now you hate your solitary confinement so much? Why is it that now you yearn for fun and excitement outside your island of tranquility? There was a time when book were your sole and much sought after companions, where is it?

Can you get that time back? Can you say bye to everything and get back that world? Can you bid adieu to yahoo, man, gtalk, blog, orkut, sms, meeting people etc etc and go back to the world?

No you cant and you wont be able to. Stll, I challenge you to do so! I challenge you to go back. I challenge you to drop everything, coz I want you to go back to the world where you were yourself, the world where you were the happiest, the world where your heart was always light, the world where there was always a smile in your face, the world where you knew you wouldn’t be able to catch jokes, wouldn’t be able to understand modern terminology, wouldn’t be able to figure out the slang and ways of talking etc, but you didn’t care.

I challenge you to go back. Starting now. I challenge you to go back to the island you lived it. I challenge you to go back to just giving and not receiving; I challenge you to go get that peace back. I wish you all the best, and hope you suceed at least in this.

Worry

It’s ironic that most of the things we tend to worry about either happened in the past, over which we have no control, or haven’t even happened yet, or are just possibilities. The author-physician A. J. Cronin once sat down and analyzed the worries of his patients. This is what he found:

Things that never happen 40%
Things in the past that can’t be changed by worry 30%
Health worries 12%
Miscellaneous, petty worries 10%
Real, legitimate worries 8%

There’s nothing wrong with feeling concern over a problem or situation, and then taking steps to deal with it. But worrying actually paralyzes us, and often there is no action to take, because what we’re worrying about in fact hasn’t happened. And when worrying gets out of hand, it makes the mind dance without reason.

So, stop worrying! Dont Worry, Be Happy, Coz if you worry, You’re in Trouble.
