Jumbled in my head

I am sitting by my bed side. 10000 words of a dissertation loom over my head.
Thankfully it's a holiday.

And all that bothered me is soon coming to an end. The feelings are so mixed. Sadness on account of some wonderful memories. Happiness on account of newer beginnings. Uncertainties in the air. Excitement and paranoia. Optimism and pessimism. The joy of living at home, the nostalgia of the hostel room. The craving for edible food. The feeling of doing everything, being places, eating a dish, for 'the last time'. The relationships that we abide by, wonder how many would last. Promises of staying in touch, attending each other's weddings, hanging out together. So easy to say. So cumbersome to fulfill.

I don't know what the future holds. I can't seem to be content with the present. Call me ambitious. No. I am just hard to please. I demand different. I am too picky and choosy. A flexible perfectionist, they call it.
My ideas of the ideal career, the ideal income, the ideal companion, the ideal family, the ideal future. I need all the possible patience on my platter. Or maybe, I just need to give up all worldly desires and meditate in the mountains

It's too short a life to complicate with trivial thoughts. And humans don't cease to be complicated.

Positivity is a way of life

Positivity motivates
Positivity is like a shield against hatred and malice
Positivity barriers those tears
Positivity lets you dream
Positivity makes days fruitful
Positivity brings cheer
Positivity is a state of mind
Positivity could be a loner's paradise
Or even an extrovert's charm
Positivity exudes an aura of itself
Positivity never lets you shatter in the worst
Positivity makes you feel special
Positivity lets you live when the world wants you dead

Such a beneficial trait, yet so rare

Whoever said, 'It was meant to last'. Everything in life has an expiry date, even life itself. Today you are the Winner, the crowd praises you, cheers you, trail you wherever you go. Tomorrow you are reduced to dust, the crowd disappears too. The definition of 'friends', 'companionship', 'love' seem to change and redefne themselves all over again. Such is life.

But, those who are meant to stay, will stay. Through thick and thin. Through the stormiest of nights and dullest of days. They won't whimper when calamity strikes. They'll not doubt, they'll not question. They will infuse the faith you may be running out of. They will led their shoulders for you to lean on. They will bring back the missing laughters.They will heal the wounds of the past with fresh memories of the present. They will find you reasons for anything and everything. They will give you a new dimension to life when all seems at standstill.

And if you have even one such person in your life, call yourself lucky, coz 'They' are a rare species.
