I was at a wedding yesterday. And somehow, weddings are like being in Rome(when in Rome, do as the Romans do!). At an Indian wedding, if you are single and of marriage-able age, your wedding prospects will surely be discussed at some point or the other. It doesn't matter where your heart is. All that matters is that you're single. Suddenly all the proverbial 'grand old ladies' will be worried about whether you are going to meet your significant other "before it's too late"!! I'm only 21, and so I escape alot of this mindless chatter. I dread the day when I have to deal with it though. Maybe 2-3 years from now. That was my weekend. There was dancing though
My friend said to me the other day that she is lonely. She said this to me as I was going through my own personal turmoil. I asked myself if I was lonely...and realised that I'm not, I never have been. Life has been difficult sometimes, but mostly, I've been happy with who I am and how I feel. Besides, I read somewhere that happiness is not a goal..it is a journey. And yes, it is fleeting. If someone were to ask me if I had regrets, I do know that there are things I'd do differently if given another chance. Small things, the way I've spoken to the people I love, the words I've used and the times I have been angry at others for no significant reason. Other than that, no regrets with the decisions I've taken.
God has been by my side always. I knew that in the winter of 2004, and I know it now. He has saved me from things He knows I would not have been able to take. Blessings all mine and ten thousand beside :-)
