Dear Best Friend..

I don’t get to see you everyday.

Infact, I don’t get to see you as often as I’d like.

But this isn’t about me. This is about you.

It’s about how much I miss you.

I miss you in the morning – because your chirpiness matched mine.

I missed you when I wore my best dress – because you never failed to notice. You made dressing up feel worth it, because you noticed.

I miss you when I feel like going to work in my pajamas – actually I miss all the teasing about being a total bum!

I miss you when I am out. Because places remind me of you. Because Id rather see all this with you once again then be mesmerised alone.

I miss you when I read – because though you were allergic to books, I could read to you. And you would listen to me in awe.

I miss you when I eat – Our tastebuds an absolute match!

I miss you when I cook – because experimenting new things was what we did best.

I  miss you when I sleep – Because you never failed to find some silly story for me (At the expense of having your own sleep driven away)

But most of all Best Friend,

I miss you when I’m Happy – because Happiness shared is Happiness doubled. Because only you can jump in joy 10 times IMG_8466and give me countless hugs. Because you know that happiness deserves cupcakes and cocktails, little happy notes and shopping dates. Because you spoilt me even when i Didn’t deserve it.

and I miss you when Im sad – because that’s when I need you the most. Because god dammit- you were this strength that is quite hard to find. Because you understood the sadness. And you always – I repeat ALWAYS made things better.

I miss you friend. For alot more reasons than I can write about.

I miss you for the little silly thing you are. Because its that silliness that i miss. Because only Best friends buy imaginary beach houses and Play XO on beaches under the moon.

I miss you best friend.

Alot more than you’ll ever know..

Never say Never

Never believe that the Dream you dream is too big. Never crush it bit by bit in a frenzied hurry. Never let any one else’s opinion outshine your dream. Because you – yes you – are meant to shine!

Everybody has their own Dream. Everybody deserves a lift now and again. There is after all enough ‘shine’ for each and every one of us!

Do what makes you happy – with whoever makes you happy.

If he genuinely makes you happy, If he makes you Laugh, If he knows how to make a drab day fab – Tell him. Marry Him. Be with him. Do what ever it takes to claim what you genuinely deserve. Smudged mascaras and panda eyes just don’t do it anymore!

If you need a holiday – take one. See the world. Breathe the cultures. Write about them. Be spontaneous. Be fun – don’t for crying out out – don’t be trapped in your own little world! This globe – it has things to offer beyond your imagination. Movie under the stars? Yes these things do happen! Go out there!

If drinking plain water tickles your fancy – then by all means go for that. Having wines and fancy cocktails will rock all boats but yours. And those in my opinion, are all the wrong boats anyway!!

Do exactly what makes you happy. And that is the bottom line.

We wait for forever for the right person. For the right time. For the right bunch of flowers. But just what is the right time? How do you define how right ‘right’ is?

Problem is we always undermine our potential for greatness.We believe good is okay, when we can be great. We settle on anything when life has so much more to offer us.

Happy after all is good – But living with a passion – that dear reader – that is the ultimate winner.

Have Hope instead of Fear. Because that is a life worth living!

Why Travelling the world is now a priority.

Travelling might be expensive. It might even get you the unsettled name.It might be too much for a person who sees nothing beyond the career horizon. But it is real. It is as real as anything else you have ever wanted.

 But for the typical person – it is a misfit. It is anything but real. For the wanderluster – it  means the world. Here’s why:

1. To know yourself, you need to be free. You need to see the world beyond your tiny stagnant social life. Theres only one way of knowing what you can do- through the experiences you have with others. Yes that hippie you met on the bus ride to Bolivia? Yes she has the most amazing mind blowing stories to tell you. And that 2am walk on some exotic beach? Probably the most peaceful thing you have done in a while!

2. When you seek for adventure, every force on your travel gives in to you. You see a beauty that you never thought of. You open your imagination to the unknown. To adventures and risks galore. You learn to trust. And before you know it – you learn to believe in yourself. And then tear away the stereotype and learn to believe in others too. 

3. You let go of your materialistic nature. The only belongings you do have, are the ones you travelled with. That gift your girlfriend never bought you-Old news!! The only things that truly do matter are the memories you carry – and you have them right there in your grey matter. Each and every one of them. Walking treasure? Yes – now you realise!

4.You are going to meet alot of people. A hell load of people! You will be in touch with the reality that yes – normal people is just a word. Most people fall out of that box. They fall in any other category but normal. And then suddenly that hollywood conceived concept that perfection means dotted i’s and unsmudged eyeliner fades away. 

5.And this leads you to accept yourself for who you are. And it leads you to be who you want to be. It strips off all those false layers and lets you be free. It makes you realise you are as short as you cap yourself to be. It makes you understand that yes – women too do have a moustache- don’t we ask for equality anyway? 

6.After burning your days out hour after hour in a job you most probably are now bored at – in a place you honestly have become way too comfortable in – this break – this travel bug spices things up. Suddenly you appreciate the tea girl a little more. Suddenly your paycheck becomes much more than bills. Suddenly, you value those little things that most people still cry about

7. If you  dont do the things you love now – if you dont have the money or the time, how in heavens name is that going to happen 10 kids later??

8. For all its worth, Travelling is fun!! Period!!
