Words of wisdom :)

Here are a few quotes I wrote in the last couple of years:

  • "You realize how wrong you were about life only when you start living your dreams" - GV (06/12/2010)
  • "There's never an ideal or right way of living life. It all lies in your definition of happiness" - GV (06/13/2010)
  • "The only thing predictable about life is that it's unpredictable" - GV (01/21/2012)
  • "It is not lack of interesting things which makes life boring, it is the lack of passion" - GV (04/01/2012)
  • "Wisdom does not come with age - it's learnt through our own foolish acts. The irony is that we act as fools more often as we grow old" - GV (07/08/2012)
And here are some that have inspired me through the years:
  • "It is better to prepare and prevent rather than repair and repent" - Ezra Taft Benson
  • "Do as well as you can do today and perhaps tomorrow you may be able to do better" - Anonymous
  • “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” - Albert Einstein
  • "Flattery is like Eau de Cologne - to be smelt but not swallowed" -  Josh Billings
  • "Work, work, work till the brain begins to swim, Work, work, work till the eyes are heavy and dim" - Thomas Hood

And I'm back....after a long hiatus

Numerous thoughts and unlimited themes come to my mind. I could start writing and not stop for hours or even days together. It is one of those times when my brain just wants to pour itself out. The tougher part is where do I begin. School has long been over and I have moved to a different phase of life - the one which I dreamed of as a kid. That very idea of getting up in the morning, dressing into some formal attire and walking into a workplace has always fascinated me. Though the truth is that having done that for almost a year now I feel how people manage to do it over and over again for decades - it is tough to sustain in the monotony of life.

It's been rightly said - "Grass is always greener on the other side". You always want to have what you don't and do things ahead of time. There was a time when coding was my passion. I enjoyed doing it more than any of my peers. When everybody around me was busy studying Physics, Chemistry and Math - I was occupied in designing my own world of websites and softwares. Now that I get to do that each day I'm back to looking for something more exciting. That something which wouldn't let me sleep. Somewhere deep down I feel I know what it is but I ask myself how long will this last ?

When I was in high school my mother attempted to get me interested in the more girly task of cooking but I was a complete rebel. It felt as if she wanted me to do something I am not born to do. And now the joy that I derive after coming out of the kitchen with a plate full of a spicy appetizer or a sweet delicious dessert  is probably inexplicable. I surprise myself with this new found love for cooking and I'm sure my long wish list of things I want to learn and excel at will keep me amazed.

On that note I should make my way to the kitchen where lots of ingredients await to be baked into a delightful chocolate cake :)
