The beauty of life

Life…. the great roller coaster ride…

With its ups and its downs,

With its smiles and its tears,

With its moments of grief and sheer bliss,

With its mysteries and its meanings….

We find that something eludes us for a while, only for us to realise that what we were searching for was right there before our eyes……

Things are very foggy and unclear at times, and then they fall into place all of their own accord…….

We sometimes feel we have reached an oasis, but it only turns out to be a mirage…….

We are not able to understand the words of some, while we are able to understand the expressions and silences of some……

Oftentimes, we visit some place or meet someone and feel like a homecoming…….

We can just sense that some things are right without knowing why……..

We can sometimes sense that something is wrong, without being able to put a finger on what……..

We sometimes feel that some parts of some people’s lives  are a part of our own lives………

We find that something we didn’t understand in the past is now crystal clear……..

Something seems to be missing when we seem to have everything and sometimes the most insignificant of things gives us immense pleasure……..

The most seemingly worthless of things sometimes act as a stepping stone to something greater……..

Certain moments and events have the power to leave us transformed for ever…….

There are times when we want to say a lot, but feel that things are best left unsaid…….

Sometimes we can see perfection where others can see imperfection and ugliness…….

Sometimes we go through something naturally and on reflection realise that we missed something terrible by a hair’s breadth……

Certain moments have an almost palpable sense of deja vu in them……

Sometimes everything is in a state of complete chaos and then a small thing, as little as a beautiful sunset, makes everything bearable…….

We sometimes search for something with our entire being and then find it only when we need it no more………

Sometimes we crave for something more than our life and then realise it was never meant to be……..

Sometimes the hands of time just do not move and sometimes we wish they would rest at that moment forever……..

Sometimes we are willing to invest a lot of precious time and effort just for a smile on someone’s face……..

There are things we do and try to find a purpose behind it, while some things are pleasurable even without a purpose…..

The whys and wherefores….

The unanswered questions and the questions whose answers we now have….

The contradictions…..

The magic and the beauty of it all….

Part of the package called life…

Making the ride worthwhile….

Life is precious….. Make sure you live every moment….

Zindagi rocks!!!!
