Simple pleasures in little things
Something similar happened a few days back . I wouldn't call this person a friend since we have known each other for about close 12 years now . We have seen each other grow up , have had our fair share of fights , happy moments and more importantly being their for each other when needed the most .
That day when I was at the airport waiting for her flight to land all I could think was in the time gone by I have never really missed her . Yet, the last time I saw her was close four years . Thats a near 1460 days . The moment we saw each other all that we could do was just smile . There were people , family to be precise and hence it was a quick in and out.
I could see that there were a lot of questions , queries , may be answers in her eyes and irrespective of a close 7,270 mi distance she traveled there was not a sign of sleep .
Like I say , there are moments you should not let go just because there is no time , or its too late or there always is a tomorrow . So we decided to have a late night coffee with Karan session and ensure we don't waste time sleeping . Delhi , at late night is not the best of the place but then who really cares .
The amount of effort you put to keep yourself happy is the same you put to keep yourself sad. Choice is yours!
We chatted and chatted and chatted . We talked all things random and most importantly I learnt in such conversations where the excitement levels are very high one needs to be a very patient and an active listener . Thoughts , words just flow by as if there is no tomorrow . We go back in time then again in the present and keep on oscillating . We realize there is so much more than the mundane tasks we do . There is so much that each other can teach , share and talk about .
Its fun to say the least . Late night drives in and around Chankyapuri are always fun . The flowers in full bloom , the neat streets and the calm all around .
These are the people , the times which one should really cherish in life and look forward to . Withing few seconds you ease out , calm down and have no thoughts of all the negativity which was going in and around you for all this while . The daily work routine where days pass faster than you think .
Of late , I have been meeting or interacting with people who live in their own world. These people are as I say - lone warriors . They need you but they need you just as a tick mark activity in their life. They are dominating , poor listeners and most importantly extremely sensitive by nature . Though you may feel they like you or may be more , but believe me they are not worth your time or effort . Let them go and pass by . They are just the dark clouds before a beautiful rain descends .
Little things should never go unnoticed - Always remember . Those who make your efforts go unnoticed are surely not meant to be with you.
Keep it simple and enjoy the little things in life.
