Disclaimer: This is a hard core philosophical and personal post. Stay away if you like neither. Don't post hate comments saying I wasted your time. I am warning you in advance.
Time flies, so they say! Some days seem longer than they are, while others you wish they would become longer. Such is life. I vaguely remember when I wrote my first post. It was almost two years back. Now two years have passed, with so much changed and unchanged!
My first post was a very personal one. When I started blogging, I thought nobody would read me. I didn't give my blog link to anybody as I knew I wrote rubbish. After writing 7 odd posts, I realized that two people followed my blog and one of them even left comments. That's when I became aware that my blog is not a private space. Making it private was an option, but I wanted to experiment with my writing skills (!!!).
So it started - a journey of blogging. Of reading and writing blogs. Of experimenting with words. And styles. In the journey, I made many friends and enemies (yes, some DO take blogging seriously!). I even saw peak in case of blogging, though it was a pretty small one for me. There was a time when I got an average of 35-40 comments on each of my posts. Slowly it started declining. Now rarely anybody reads me. I am not that regular too when it comes to posting. Many people I used to read regularly have stopped writing too or are as irregular as me!
But haven't I repeated these things earlier too? Yes, today is one of those days when you think of the past memories and want to go back there. It's one of those days when you think what have you done to see this day. But the next day again takes you by surprise. Life is full of surprises. Things happen at a time you are least expecting and don't happen when you are waiting desperately for them to happen. That's life, and it moves on, so does the time. But when you are at it, it seems as if the time has stopped.
Too much of philosophy already in one post! My my! I remember writing a post on this. I was not very philosophical. I never even liked to read much of philosophy. But time changes everything. It has changed me too, I don't know for good or bad, that time will tell. But the only thing constant in life is change.
Yes, you guess it right. Days are tough, but I am blessed with wonderful people around me who keep me going. They do everything in their power to support me, to cheer me up and face the challenges. It helps a lot when you know you have support. It gives you strength to face the tough time. And as they say, it is a phase, and it shall pass.
Thus the wait continues. For this time to pass and the new time to begin. A hope for a better time tomorrow. A hope that keeps me, you, all of us going.
