I am alive.

It is funny how realisation dawns on you. The time the location the moment so unexpected. Yet it is that moment you have waited and dreaded for. Both at the same time.

If only you had known the truth with such clarity a tad bit earlier, some of the stupid things you did could have been avoided. Or the hurt you felt could have been dealt without that tub of ice cream. The uncertainty and anguish could have been banished.

Of course that isn’t to be. Life is cruel. It remains such with so much ease that you wonder how did she find such expertise. By practice I say. No matter how smart I think I am, or prepared I feel I am, life throws me another experience that I didn’t know how to experience.

So I go ahead. Be me. Experience. Hurt. Fall. Get up. Smile. I have just lived life all over again.

  1. What a great view. So many times I have found myself thinking that the only way to experience life is happy, joyous and free. The truth is that there are many sides to experience, including pain and suffering. The question is what we chose to do as a result of those things we feel. Not knowing the answers is part of our growth and shapes our experience.

    Thanks for the perspective…

  2. You have given voice to what I call “Hindsight 20/20”. Yes, its better to live life, fall, get up, smile, only to fall a little while later.. and the cycle repeats.

    Back in college, a teacher once told me, “The trials we have in life are there to serve as armor for the next set of trials.” It’s not very optimistic, I know, but we have to remember that there are so many lessons to learn in life. The biggest lesson is in realizing that there will always be more lessons to learn.

    Take care.

    That was so well put! Despite being an optimist, I sometimes get angry at life for throwing me off balance each time I think I’ve found my ground. I call them speed breakers.

    I am not sure I curse the life that I live or crave for. I am continuously surprised by it though. That is probably what keeps me going.
