Were you always like this?

“Were you always like this Nikhil or all this is a recent change?”
And my reply to this was…. (Wait for it…will tell you later in this post)
A couple of days back, to be exact it was yesterday that I was having a conversation or more like a discussion (a serious one this time :p) with one of my dear friends. She was all addled and said “I am sick of  this coding stuff & I am in a dilemma ..and very much confused with what to do next “
And frankly speaking most of us are( & that includes me as well). We all at some point or the other in life tend to think about “What’s next in store for me?”. And that’s ok. Not everyone enjoys what they are currently doing with their life. After a while of doing something new you ought to get this feeling eventually. If you love what you are doing then you are truly a lucky person, mate & keep doing it with the same zest & zeal.
“Were you always like this Nikhil or all this is a recent change?”
I replied “ I have always been like this ….I maybe self boasting…but what do you think gal…always or recent??”
To this she says “ How will I know re..I mean always being positive & enthusiastic ..dreaming the same dreams..wanting the same thing …with some it dies over the years ….and for some exceptional cases it’s always the same”
At that moment I thought being an extrovert has it’s  own advantages too ;) It can lead people to think awesome things like this about you. :p. But yeah jokes apart.. I felt really happy when she said that .That she thinks I am a person with the qualities of an optimist. But it is not cent % true. I do kinda act  naive at many situations.  At times life can really piss you off & all you wanna do is stand on the highest possible point around (accessible to you :p) & scream your heart out “F@#$ all this sh*@ & screw you life”. But yeah that is just a passing thing & sooner or later that phase just fades away.
Dreams do change & that is not a wrong thing. But make sure the dream that you have been dreaming for a long, long time now ..is at least met at some crossroads in your life.  Make sure to live it for at least a day or even for some moments  & then moving on is all okay! Dreams do change but believe me you.. it better change after you achieve at least a part of it, is what I would say.
I sure doesn’t say achieving 100 % of your dream is not possible, for some it is & for some they just move on eventually forgetting about it. So this is for the other folks “Dream on….. At least try achieving a part of it….move on & then again Dream on you dreamer!”
And my friend, who’s actually the source for this post…her what’s app status reads “ Someday all your dreams & all your nightmares will be a reality…be prepared to embrace both of ‘em with the right attitude” ;)
This post is truly dedicated to people like us who wish to Dream On…On …and On! J
P.S. – And specially to the person who made me think about this & this post is what resulted when I pondered the question of what exactly the future has instore for us?….Don’t you worry gal…Eventually you will come to a decision which will change your life for good. Kudos to dreams…Hold on to ‘em ….you ought to achieve ‘em….Kudos to life!!!
P.P.S - Lines from the movie , The Pursuit of Happyness: “If you have a dream , go for it! Period”

      And you said that rightly. If we dare to dream then we should have the courage to pursue them as well.

  7. Your friend's status is bang on... We always want our dreams to come true, but we forget that nightmares are also dreams of a kind.

  8. Very well said.often it is said- those who do not have dreams in life, hv nothing much after all. Dreams r the fuel that runs our lives. And then there is action, more dreams, more hopes n it goes on, like u hv said.
    Being an optimist is great, yet every one cannot b one all the time... Yet let's try to b so most of the time..makes d world a much better place!

  9. hahhaah when i started reading your Post , what came to my mind was .."If you have a dream, go for it.Period" ... And look at what i found at the end ...hmmmphhh ... Like you said extroverts make people feel that they are super optimistic, i can def relate to that. :) Oh yea , and most of the times i do feel like cursing the daylights out of people :P . But , Dreams are what keeps us going , aren't they :) . Those who don't dream , out of fear of not beingto achieve them are just so mehhh!!! :P ... To Dreamss!!! Cheers

    1. For a blogger , the wish of their readers ..is their command. You wished for a phrase ..so you got it milady. :p :p
      And this relates so very well to the above post or like Shahrukh said in the movie Om Shanti Om "Agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho toh puri kayanat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai" or to quote "The Alchemist" the actual origin of the quote : “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it” .
      So dreamers…. keep dreaming…& do go for your dreams. Period!
