When Time Stands Still

Funny that this post should begin so when I haven't written anything for the last three months! But time does stand still – when you wish that second would last just a little longer, when that extra second means so much more and when you wish the universe would pause just for that one second. And when you're not alone in sharing that moment, it's what makes living all the more worthwhile.

What stationary time also provides is a chance to reflect – on how much life can change…how a single moment or a fleeting glance can push you into stupidity, despair and even joy. When while taking the first step you think phew, half the battle is won but no – what lies ahead is a rocky road with no destination in sight. When a glimmer of hope turns out to be a flame that will hurt and when a (at-the-time) harmless gesture brings with it scary repurcussions.

But what all this doesn't take away is the fact that periods of darkness are precursors to bright sunshine, how riding the rough seas makes one stronger and how happiness can wipe out blots of sadness as if they never existed. And that is what I've come to realise…if you strongly believe in something or someone , nothing can take that away from you.

    but how many of us are brave enough to rise.. when we fall from a high such as this… coz only the one fallen has the idea of all the shattered dreams.. and the impossibly un-attainable wish we believe in inspite of ourselves.. ?
