52 weeks of Gratitude .. Week 5 Says the title is “Something Someone Gave you”

Life is very funny indeed, teaches us a lot of things, some good some bad. It is surly up to us, to either learn from the mistakes or do them again. Lucky are those who learn and don’t repeat them again. On other thought I am sure life will be pretty BLAND if not for the mistakes or the wrongs one has done, I guess it is these events that spice up life. I am sure I have done a lot A LOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT (yeah it is a lot of T’s in that Lot, that is because it’s that many I have done) of Mistakes, have I learned well the answer to that is NO IDEA.

God has been very kind to me , in-spite of making all those mistakes there are so many people who love me and care for me , even if I have been bad to them, So Thank you to all of them for being in my life, for loving me so much. I do remember you all and LOVE you as much it is sad that life has taken few turns that we are not together any-more. I am sorry to have hurt all those who I have hurt, do forgive me if you CAN but maybe my mistakes are such that I can’t be forgiven. Anyway this post is not about all that ..

I have a few things that have been given to me over time by some lovely people who have loved me , cared for me which I have kept , I obviously can’t share all of them or share the stories behind because that is something very personal to me . But I can surly share one lovely gift I got from someone.

Sometimes I sit and go through the past , relive those beautiful days , Hoping will they Ever come back again, do the people who cared then – still care as much, because I surly care as much.

My question to everyone reading do you or have you also kept all these memories saved , the gifts you got, I have them all saved and as I mentioned earlier I go through them almost everyday.

Here’s wishing and praying Lord Ganesha looks upon all of you and fulfils all your wishes.

Ps:- I have not been visiting the lovely blogs I usually visit, LIFE as I said above is funny and it seems this year it is just not letting me go, one thing after the other keeps happening, very stressed and probably going in Depression πŸ™‚ .. he he he he πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ .. Hopefully APRIL will come with better news. I am having to visit India soon have to take care of a few religious duties and other personal issues , so hoping that things will change. If I dont get to visit you all please pardon me ,, I will be visiting for sure .. Have a great day everyone.

    Take care. Come to think of it, I do have a few old possessions, not all though. Moving so often made me lose some of them.

  3. If I were to write the post about something someone gave me, I bet it would be the same exactly. Yes, I always wonder the same if people who were so close and caring back then still care or not. Sometimes distance plays a cruel role and sometimes it doesn’t and for all such times, we should feel happy n lucky. And about the ppl who love us no less despite all our shortcomings, aren’t we just too lucky to have them? I think so.
    Sometimes, things are just different and difficult. We will have no choice but to endure chanting the “this too shall pass” mantra. Take care bikram. Passing on lots of strength and support(virtual though!). Bye.

    Call me a junkie….but I have saved every piece of memory, letters, birthday cards, gifts, I have my school badge too, old diaries, everything…. name it and it is there in my cupboard. I carried everything with me when I came away from my parental home.

    I think, you must never beat yourself over your mistakes, we must make mistakes, and keep making them till our lesson is learnt.

  16. Bikram, this comes at a time when just yesterday, I messaged a photo of a bracelet my very first colleague got me, 3 years back. He was overjoyed that I still have it. Little things given and preserved matter so much. That is why one of my resolutions for 2015 is to give gifts to my near and dear ones – gifts which will be remembered. (I called you Bikram!!!! Not Bikramji yay!)

    Once AI figured, 42 is answer to Ultimate Question. The answer to this 52 week challenge, interestingly is in 42nd week …. Gratitude, should be one of the favorite possessions, indeed! When cultivated, reinforces empathy. When expressed, kindness flourishes, bringing out smiles, which forever we can cherish!
