Hope Floats


Hope floats

I cannot blame writers block to my laziness anymore.. so for all who wanted me to write regularly.. this is for you.. Finally out of inertia...

Because some of you were so desperately HOPING for me to write again... I couldn’t think of anything else but HOPE... which most of the times can be the choice you make after CHANGE...

And my life and actually its true for almost all of us ..... IS ALL ABOUT CHANGE...
When we experience change.... we have our family, friends, well wishers telling us... THAT EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR THE BEST....

 But

What they are actually trying to tell us is,  that what we didn’t want to happen has happened.. and we have no choice,  but to accept and deal with it... 

Which is obviously is the most logical thing to say...  but then the fuck up is...  its not that easy... All of us have experienced change... for the good or in some cases for bad as well.....

  • Some of us with lot of strength accept it and deal with it as advised..
  • Some of us don’t... and get into denial mode... and ignore... and get depressed.. and etc etc..
  • Some of us... (ME) act as if they have accepted the change and are dealing with it in the most effective way.. but in reality  it’s not what it appears to be...

 People like me (if they are any of my kind existing) hold on to what they didn’t want to change (even if the change has done good)  and dwell on it forever... going back and forth and just torturing themselves... out of personal choice!! Refusing to come out of the comfort zone even if its better otherwise... denying themselves happiness... because of their inability to take risks...

And in my case... (I am the third and the most deadly category) by the grace of god, change has always done me good)..... So why didn’t I let HOPE FLOAT!!! 

My job is a lot to do with hope... making individuals see what’s possible, believing in themselves, taking action and achieving their dreams... ....... and I have done this for 12 years...

 I am a sucker for positivity and hope... in the way I speak, talk to people.... even on my facebook status... and yet... I didn’t HOPE.. didn’t practice what I preached and advocated so strongly... And the worst part is I didn’t hope... but believed and acted as if I did...

So I thought why don’t...... I do what I say, Act as per my belief .... that Hope Floats .... For everyone in every condition ... whether it is

  • ·         Dealing with a terminal illness
  • ·         Waiting for the right diagnosis for your condition
  • ·         Dealing with a broken marriage / relationship
  • ·         Waiting to finish your studies and finally start your life..
  • ·         Adjusting to a new city... new job...
  • ·         Accepting things when they go wrong...
  • ·         Trying to make someone understand what you feel for them...
  • ·         Healing your broken heart and soul... again and again and again....

If there is hope... life moves on... there is something to look forward to every moment you breathe.. Sunrise gives you energy... sunset gives you patience to wait for tomorrow.

I know... it’s easier said then done... But the thing to remember is hope doesn’t just sit there like a stone.. it has to be made...like bread.. remade all the time fresh and new....

And I can do this .... if I have the intention to see the possibilities what life has to offer... have the courage to believe it will happen.. and the self esteem to not settle for anything less than what I deserve.....

And not to forget...there is something else which also floats ... more on that later ;)
Love always

  1. I love u and i HOPE u thought about me as u did about all ur loved ones while writing this one....
    Like alwis its an exceptionally heartfelt piece.... Though i must admit ur city's doingu good.... Uve shifted from doubt to HOPE :)
    HOPE, thankfully is all encompassing....
    Its a feeling....
    Its a thought process....
    Its a way of life....
    Most importantly, HOPE is inherent....
    Each time one needs HOPE one has to simply acquire it from within....
    Surprisingly all the HOPE that most people lead u to believe in does u no good until u call for that inherent one from inside....
    Once u truly HOPE u become.....
