A new way

Image
This medical break has given me so much time that being idle, all I can do is think all the time!! I used to wonder how can people day dream, or lie around doing nothing at all!! And being a hyper-active person, I never really liked it..
But after these weeks, for the first time I feel it is not really bad (to do it once in a while!) Of course I do not wish to take away the credit of all those who actually got me convinced about this! I am happy they are successful!! For me, it is indeed a new way of recovering! :-) Thanks to everyone!!! :-) p.s: Dedicated to respond to Infinite's statement! Your point has been noted! :-)

Deserving

Image
I abide by a principal of being able to deserve returns by means of achievement. It gives a mysterious pleasure and a sense of accomplishment, when you have worked hard and then had a deserving celebration!
For the past 2 weeks I have been on strict rest (read "no work") prescribed by doctor. Details of health are too frustrating to pen them down. Its just that, when you are doing nothing, a medical rest seems to be undeserving too! Is it wrong to think this way?? What is better? To deserve the rest and recover one's health, or to take the undeserving rest and compromise on the peaceful nights sleep? I am still confused!!!

Its easy when said and done!

If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind? - P. B. Shelly (from-Ode to the West Wind)

I admire this ode for the positive vibes it gives out. The quoted sentence is the concluding line and it induces peace of mind! For me, this over powers the proverbial statement "Its always easy said than done!" I say, "If its easy to say, then better get it done!" :-)

Last Concern

"... It was drizzling enough to make the roads slippery. At sunset, just before darkness completely sets it, a Volvo was speeding to reach its destination. For some unknown reason the speed manifested urgency. And on a risky turn, the bus skid from the track. The layer of mushy land accumulated against the tyres stopped it from toppling. For a second nothing was in place!"

I was one of the passengers. At the time we went off the road, I wasn't sure what was coming! At that time the only thing on my mind was, if I die, let it be a peaceful death! It is difficult to accept that I didn't think of anyone else. All the relationships, commitments, responsibilities seemed to be so trivial to even come to my mind!

I am still not sure if its nature or instinct to be concerned about only oneself at the end or is it pure defence mechanism?
