Sometimes you do need the kick in the butt

March 1, 2012 § 1 Comment

Yes, you do.
And Sometimes you need to let go of things from past, before you can grab new ones.

Few days back, I was miserable. I was lonely. I was stressed. And to top it all, someone I thought of as a friend made me feel bad. I think it was that incident with so-called friend, which was my kick in the butt. I got up, took stock of situation. RSVP’d yes to almost all the invites I had received. And look where it got me.
I’ve been having absolute ball of time from past two weeks. Weekend getaways, Friday nights where drinks result in bit of pub crawl, movie nights, winery tour, more boardgames, more movies. It’s been a fun time. Very little rest, but fun nonetheless. And I have been meeting most wonderful people along the way.
Now here’s the thing, I wouldn’t have accepted some of these people in my life, if not for that kick in the butt. I was lonely and I decided not to be. And how wonderful it is.

Moral of the story is ‘Doesn’t matter if life gives you lemons, you can always use it with tequila’. No, that’s not it. It is ‘Sometimes you need to let go of pre-conceived notions in head, and let other people in’

In my demented view, some people weren’t worth the effort due to age/interests/other factors. And now I’m just glad I did make an effort.

    Oh, hello. I’ve been traveling through India again and I’m back home and over the jet lag.

    Glad to hear life is looking up! There are many stairways going that way. Enjoy your path.
