Ordinarily Random

I've been so up and down this week. From being happy and hopeful, to messy and miserable, I don't even know what I'm feeling anymore. All this week I have been thinking how the most ordinary things also have so much to them, so much that you cannot even imagine. Yes, "As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination."
I wonder how we are always influenced. Like I say, being conventional is always wrong. Not only by people around but the angel-devil in ourselves too. I wish I could somehow stop everyone from telling me, "You cannot do it", even myself! Would it not be good to have a fear free, apprehension less life. Is it wrong to create your very own selfish world where you can add-subtract people, food, schools, jobs..well actually everything? But then I feel, it might utterly wrap me in my own egotist world. In this struggle, I as well as all of you tend to look for different paths in life. But, as they say, no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere. We meet people, we learn from them - good or bad? Well that's up to them and us too :) And that is how we achieve. I know that my achievements (an extra stress to the S signifying plural) are quite ordinary. I am not the only woman to have found the fortunes I am proud of but then I am at least one of those who achieved something if not everything. Isn't it more than enough that I have the courage to believe in the existence of answer to every question that arises in my thought territory? And moreover, I could question! But still, there are times I am bewildered by each mile I have traveled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known and each bed in which I have slept.

Things happen for a reason

In life, there were times when you got exactly what you wanted but weren't the times when you were denied of wishes much better? Think! Well those were the times when you got things much better than you desired.
Yes! I love the way He smiles at me!
Undoubtedly, Everything happens for a reason and every time the reason is good. Yep! "Whether we comprehend it or not, everything happens for a reason. Sometimes it’s for a larger purpose than just your mind to understand." We may term the reason: luck, wish, hope, fate, destiny, illness, co-incidence, accident, partiality and what not but in the end we know there was a good reason. Even if something was unfair, it gave us courage, strength and willpower. It taught us lessons that otherwise, our soul, body and spirit wouldn't have even faced. The "I" in you is created with every failure, betrayal and downfall. Thus appreciate every moment. Let every breath has a story enclosed in it. Let us all realize that for every moment, good or bad, that has been part of your life, it was meant to be there, in that very order and to serve a purpose of teaching you the lesson and making you what you are. May be that was what you always wanted to be, or may be you deserved to be more than what you desired to be.

Some of the learning bruise came from the road I didn't want to travel.
Some of the best people I have known are the ones I didn't want to meet.

Some of the most magnificent doors I passed were where there was no way.
Some of the wealth I've ever received came from a trifle I wanted to withhold.
Some of the hope has saved everything when I wanted most to give up in despair.
Some of the most painful tears because of the vision to look beyond turned to happiness.
Some of the wonderful wisdom I gained came from people who looked poor, old and messed.
Some of the dearest moments I could spend are with people I never told how important they are.
Some of the right-on-targets were achieved because they started just when the time of deadline arrived.
And, some of the prove-me-wrong posts came just when I thought it's not my cup of tea, it's time I shall quit!
