Having the Cake and eating it too.

Tough times dont last. But tough people do. Been saying that to myself, as i try and wear my troubles down. Its been a hectic time. Away from the blog and close friends. Sometimes, life comes upto you and stares in the eye, before awarding you a yellow card, for no foul of yours! But then, thats part of the game.

I am not sure as to how many times i have shrugged my shoulders in the past couple of weeks, trying to regain basics and come back. Well, Life rolls on. The permutations and combinations that goes on in the mind of what awaits us at the end of any tunnel are mindblowing. But the end somehow is just the same. Today, some one commented that i have to stay focussed on the long run to ride through current problems. I remembered a quote, “In the long run we are all dead” !

But, on second thoughts, things arent as bad. I still have a reasonably healthy body. A sane mind ( I think), a wonderful family, a few good habits to even out the many odd ones, a clutch of friends. A decent forehand. A roof above. Six wheels to move around. Books to read and a blog to write ! Life has been kind.

My mind darts to the so many to whom life has been extra kind, with multitude of riches or the warmth of the heart or the width in the mind to be happy with whaever. Within no time, the mind darts to the other end of the spectrum : The crying Iraqi. the dead American. The ‘vaccum in the mind’ professionals… Life indeed has been kind.

Will blog regularly. Hope to. It keeps me even. After all, life is for living. Just as cakes are for eating !
