The blues.....

I remember the last get together with Pranati and Snita, back in pune, few days before we were to leave for MS….dat day Pranati had said something, jyacha importance I got to know in these few days….she had said dat while doing MS svatala motivated thevna is the most important thing(keeping urself motivated enuf is the most important thing)…..so very true this is…..I realized this when nothing around me was working the way I would have liked it to work…..nothing seemed right; everything, I felt was going down in dumps…my work, my rapport with people, my self confidence…everything….i didn’t feel like doing any work, didn’t feel like talking to my friends or family…i had come to believe that I was the most unfortunate person in the whole world…..had even questioned my decision of coming here and doing MS….felt as if I should have joined IBM after BE, had lived a comparatively normal life…as compared to the craziness out here (which incidently I do enjoy when im not feeling blue)……those few weeks of blue state of mind in fact taught me a great deal about dealing with things…and the most important is that, if u have to survive, no matter how bad things are for u, no matter how much the circumstances are against you, you need to keep yourself self motivated…..these things should not bog one down……I have learnt that in the face of problems, I need to ‘face’ them, talk them out….instead of keeping them to myself……
Chala pure zhali philosophy....ata im back to my crazy 'non-blue' state of mind...

Before wrapping up....

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.

for dat u need to call on 518-694-6482...apan blog var counselling nahi karat:P...jus kidding..

i guess after a low patch, u urself feel from within dat u need to make the best of what u have with u...
plus, the inputs put in by our parents for us is a motivation enough to perform well i guess(it works for me atleast!!)...other than the need to raise in esteem in ones' own mind....did this help??;)

Neha! Writing on ur blog specially on your birthday! : )

“we have something special that belongs to you and me….a deeper understanding that we share instinctively…
A trusting kind of friendship that ppl rarely share ..a way of knowing when the other needs us there..
We have something special and no matter what we do….whether talking, laughing, shopping ,something wonderfull shines through…
Its special kind of love on which we depend….its the love between two sisters..
Way to go dear sis! : ) : )
Anndddd don’t worry be happy …ALWAYS : )
