Life Lessons

Feels just like yesterday that 2012 began; and how it has flown so fast.

I was going through an old journal earlier today, and came across some musings that I had written over 10 years ago. A relationship had just come to an end, my wounds were still raw. It felt like Life was not unfolding in the many ways that I had anticipated in my imagination. I sought solace in my journal.

As I walked down memory lane earlier today, I felt very different from my younger self who had shared his thoughts on those pages. And at the same time, I felt no different from that younger me.

Time….. guess it does fly by in the twinkle of an eye. I share below one of the musings that I wrote back then [one of the less shaming ones :-)]…… and further below, a picture capturing that whole essence of Now and Then….

There are some days when I feel I have come such a long way

On those days, I think the journey has indeed begun

Each experience bringing a lesson,

and with the lesson a deeper level of self-awareness.

On those days I pat myself on the back

and give praise to Mother Nature,

for this is a stage of the journey

that I never thought I’d reach.


There are some days when I feel

I have not moved from the beginning

On those days all I see are my insecurities.

All I hear is Mother Nature and her children mocking me

Each mistake a failure,

and with the failure a deeper sense of frustration

On those days, I hide myself from the world,

the journey never began,

It was all an illusion.

Now and Then
