Willing these moments to pass,
Looking for comfort, at last,
Why is getting through each day, such a task?
Is a little respite too much to ask?

Sorry for the dark undertones in the previous those who are more in the mood for something (just a bit) more uplifting, read on:

Were we to never look back at what has precipitated in the past,
Were we to never remember things that we knew won't last,
We'd be repeating the same mistakes again soon,
So is the pain of reminiscence rightly a boon.

Life happens

Lazy saturday :)...watched a couple of movies...listing down a couple of quotes from there, that I found particularly enlightening, and trying to draw a parallel from there =>

"Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out alive"
We all know this is true :), and yet, there are times, when we do take life a lot more seriously than it aught to be taken. A dose of lightness in life should be a mandatory prescription for all of us. There is no point getting all too serious thinking of the past, the future, and what not, and missing out on the moment itself. Its these moments that make our life special.

"Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans"
Very nicely put. We all do have dreams, hopes and aspirations, that we strive to make real each day. Unknownst to us, while we are making our grand plans, there's something glorious (for the pessimists, just something) happening to us at every moment - LIFE. We don't realize it, but in the ending, we'll not be looking back at what we accomplished in life, but rather, at the memories we have of this journey that we undertook. Time spend with family, friends, the minor roadblocks, the overcoming of hurdles, the trials and the jubilation...these are the LEGO blocks of our life. So, perhaps, we be a little more conscious of our life unfolding, every moment...even as I write this, and you, read.
