But amidst all these, I somehow forgot about all the beautiful things around me. And all the beautiful things I dream about. I wonder why I only blog about my worries and not about my dreams? Or do I?. Coz I know why. It's simply because I blog, when I'm confused. When there seems to be a closed door in front of me. When I dunno where to turn. And blogging helps me decide.
The other day, I read a post on a friend's blog on how we tend to overlook some of the beautiful things in this world. It's so true. I mean, it was when I left a comment on the blog, that did I realise what he meant. And what I missed. I'm however not the kinds who'd forgo all the fun in my life for the serious stuff. I am in love with life. I dream. I have fun. And fun is the most important ingredient of my life.
So today, I'm gonna talk about a few of my favourite things. To start with, every time I watch an animation film with my neice, I wish I were a part of it. Like maughli or someone. Part of the jungle, where all the animals are friends. They sing, they dance. The beautiful lakes with rippling water. The dark green hills. And the trees laden with fruit. It's all so nice. No worries. No fear. How I wish I were in a world where everyone's happy for each other. Each one ready to help another. And it's all smiles around. Laughter everywhere. What a wonderful world! Sigh!! But I guess, that's why they're in cartoons. And not in real. But do you think, there'd be a world like that somewhere?
If not, a world full of babies. Babies who smile at you for no reason. Hold your fingers and don't let them go. Make sounds that you wish never changed. And talk to you, like they knew all what's going around. Pampers, Cerelac and feeding bottles accepted. :)
I've always dreamt of a loong drive through an empty road, in the rains. The windows of your car lowered slightly, and the rain drops kissing your nose gently. When the skies are all grey and white. And leaves of plants, bright and green. Winds blowing softly caressing your hair. And you drive towards nowhere, like in search of where the rains come from.
I wish I never reach a point, where I'll be left without my friends around. Life will be incomplete without them. Laughing with them. Crazking dumb jokes. Suddenly, life becomes so enjoyabale. So much more fun. You forget there's a world outside the coffee shop or the theatre.
How would it be, if the world were the way we wanted it to be? Would it be a nice, coz, happy place to be in? Or would we still be wishing for more? Well, we'd still be humans. And so, our thrist for more can never be quenched. I wouldn't be surprised if I dreamt of a different life, if I were in the world I dream of now.
But that's what keeps us going right? The hope for something better. The dreams that seem so real. And all the negatives that make us look forward to them. For, if they were no bad things, there would be nothing good either. Makes sense?
