At 20 years of age the will reigns; at 30 the wit; and at 40 the judgment.- Ben Franklin
Aug25 this year was one of those good times in life for me.. Do’h ..Twas my b’day..So HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO Me 🙂
There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents … and only one for birthday presents, you know.~Lewis Carroll….
Gifts (mu-hahaaaaaa) are one of the best parts of this mighty gud day.The haul was pretty good this time :D…I don’t wanna seem like a gift hogging ape…but who cares everybody loves presents.
Why is a birthday cake the only food you can blow on and spit on and everybody rushes to get a piece?– Bobby Kelton .True huh !
As the years keep rolling I suddenly get the dreary feeling that I’m undergoing metamorphosis .. this transformation from a juvenile to what could possibly be termed mature adulthood… is
😦 yuck ! Its something we all have to live with some day or the other whether we like it or not!Looking back @ everything.. prekindergarten at cape comorin.. Elementary at Nagercoil…High school n above at Pearl city..College at Cracker city(certainly a crackkker) I get the sick feeling of emptiness , I think 😕 .
This aug 25 had gotten me thinking about why am i on Planet earth…other than the fact that I am just a waste of good breathing air..(Lol).This sinking funny feeling left me thinking about what my life goals could be..I jotted down a few ideas.. and things I must do before I get off Planet Earth..I won’t disclose all my jots…. But few of the things that I wanna do is this:
1) Take a world tour .( or at the least the UK,France..probably an Eurotrip 😀 )
2) Watch the opening of the Olympics.(In person i.e..,)
3) Learn to play the violin ( Meryl Streep’s movie “Music from the heart” had something to do with this:) )
4) Learn how to speak Spanish (movies again;) )
5) Become a published author (whether in a newspaper, magazine, or preferably a book.)
6) Own the biggest Movie Library (Really passionate about this one)
7) Contribute something meaningful to a great charity or organization
8) See my favourite bands perform LIVE ( especially Avril I’d like to .. )
9) Donate my eyes
The list is endless .. I have about some 20 of them right now.All of it ain’t worth publishing..atleast not @ this juncture..
Yeah, they are rather lofty,I agree… but some of them are kind of directions to go in, rather than do or die goals. As in, if I move towards becoming a enlightenend soul or published author, the process itself will be rewarding.
Apart from all of these worldly goals I do have a few religious ones too like Reading the entire Bible and praying and meditating everyday.
And again there are a few of the unhinged and insane ones like Singing in public 😀
I may have to save, scrimp,skimp to achieve few of those goals.. But one thing is true..I find great things in the simple joys of life…A cup of hot coffee on a rainy day with my favourite music on the backdrop… Sleeping under the stars… Watching the twilight fade slowly and midnight creep in… (Lol I do sound like a weirdo at tyms don’t I ?… Wait till you read this part below the pic 😀 )
Do you take time to appreciate the simple joys in life? Do you smile at the sun or sing in the rain? Do you feel the high of being on top of a mountain or feel the warmth of the sand beneath your feet at the beach? Do you stop to smell fruit on a tree or flowers on a bush? Do you take time to coo at an infant, or to watch puppies or kittens at play? Do you savor the foods you eat? Do you really listen to, and enjoy, the music you hear? Are you thankful for the air you breathe and the life you have been given? Most of all, do you ever take time to marvel in the mere-yet-profound fact that, of all the infinite possibilities in the Universe, God/The Creator (or whatever you wish to call the Ultimate Source) chose to create you?
We do not need magic to change the world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: We have the power to imagine better. –J.K. Rowling
Lets make our stay on Planet Earth worthwhile !

Good Day yall…
Have a great and fulfilling week ahead !
