Fading Into New

2007-Keshi: Hey me!

2008-Keshi: Hey you!

I was tagged by the gorgeous Silvara on a very interesting one this time around. This tag invites us to reveal what we would say to the person we were way back in the beginning of 2007. It goes like this. The Keshi who is right now at the beginning of year 2008, is talking to the Keshi who was at the beginning of year 2007. So it's like my Present self is having a little chat with my Past self. Neat or what guys! So here I go. Bear with me if I sound meaningless at some points, cos in here I am talking to myself and only I'd understand certain things :). Thanks in advance guys! Diving in now...

My dearest Kesh-in-2007,

Keshi Keshi Keshi it's 2007...what are you thinking about? That it's another year and how it'll all turn out to be? Well guess what, next year by this time you'd say that year 2007 was a cakewalk, but not without some very important reflections. You'd hear something great about your uncle's case which proves determination pays off somehow, but at the same time you'll fall out with a very close cousin. It's ok...cos from what she says to you, you'd realise that she's not what you thought she was to you. Some people wear thick masks Keshi...they are not as transparent as you are. Get over it and move on..I know you will by the end of 2007. At the same time, you'll learn to love them'll become a freer person than you were in 2006. When 2008 comes around, you'd have a conscience as free as a bird soaring high in the sky. You'll realise that Conscience can either haunt you for life or set you free forever...and the latter it shall be for you.

Family-wise, you already know that sometimes loved-ones are the hardest people to get along with. The foolish games people play with each others' minds even at the cost of relationships are just mistakes that we all make. But towards the end of year 2007 you'd have put all those events behind you and look back with a smile...a smile for the person you have grown to be because of those experiences. Remember how you'd chuck a spaz up until 2006 when someone hurt your feelings Keshi? Well that was cos you were oversensitive and hadn't really learnt how to tackle your emotions sensibly. In 2007 you'll learn how to let go, how not to let people get to you and how to stay strong in character no matter what. 2007's events would make you fashionably sensitive but too cool to care, and that shall always be your spirit.

At times, you'd think life is such a drag...dark thoughts would take over you but light shall be found again...cos you are meant to live a little longer than just a few years on this Earth you know. There'll be few days in 2007 that you'd wanna end it all...yes you'd feel that low...but hey that's not Keshi right? Don't give in to such thoughts...certain events can either make you or break you...which one do you wanna choose for yourself? Have your heart broken but make sure you glue all the pieces back together (go to K-mart to get a good price on supa-glue hehe). Do not get discouraged by what your life has become...2008 will show you the direction to a better path. The map is being prepared right now. All you've got to do is keep driving along no matter what. And remember to follow road rules in this map of life - if you speed, you'd have to pay for it in many diffferent ways.

And oh dear, some friends who you thought were your real friends would also distance from you in'd try your best but they simply aren't meant to be. Let go of the attachment and the longing, for that's when you'd see the true nature of any relationship. You'll make it, I know.

Healthwise you'll improve your fitness levels and you'll also be more determined. Not only physically, you'll also exercise your soul and keep it healthy and loving towards all beings. That'll truly make you who you were meant to be - you'll find you Keshi.

One more thing, you won't find love in 2007 honey, do not be disheartened...for who needs a partner when you have so many friends giving you a whole lot of love right here in Blogville every single day (when you long for some perving, just got to the beach!). You will have a certain Mr.Darcy falling for you in January but it'll all end in just 7 days - pretty short ha! He wasn't worth the drama anyways chica ***rolling eyes***. And you'll get over him pretty soon trust me. Well enjoy 2007 for you'd love it with all your heart when you reach 2008, and boy o boy it's gonna be one hell of a ride from now on!

-Your's sincerely Kesh-in-2008.

Ok have a rocking weekend guys! And a special note to my dearest Indian mates here...I LOVE YOU GUYS and I MEAN IT! No hard feelings between you and me ok. Differences don't make a friendship...similarities do. So let's focus on how 'similar' we and I are human (not Indian, not Aussie, not Sri Lankan, not American)...just human, and we share one more thing between us and that's LOVE...and that's all that matters to me. Friends are like the waves and the can't exist without the other...and we keep reaching out to each other somehow. I heart my hot INDIAN mates, life would be dull without mah Bolly babies MWAHHHH! ;-) Catch ya all soon!

Silvara said...

Hello babe!! Love the letter - 2008 sounds like it's sounding good already :) I think it is important at some stage to reflect on the past, realize and then let go.

Have a great weekend chica! :D

KAYLEE said...

Steph said...

If only we could do that for real.

WP2007 said...

Hi Keshi

Very interesting post.

I think I'll have the 2007 me write a letter to the 2008 me. If these two met face to face, they would likely beat the hell out of each other.

Hi 2008

I know I left you a mess to sort through, but else could I do. I went to England only to have the entire project wash away.

Then there was my friend who met a terrible fate, but I couldn't do anything about it mate.

I wanted to give up blogging, but you're still logging.

Through thick and thin at least we're still kin. So no matter what I managed to do, I did it all for you.


Have a nice weekend Keshi


maverick said...

hey...nice post...especially the letter...well if i was writing..i ld say..."Dude...well done u ve lost abt 10+kgs..way to go...gotta do a lot good luck with the job u r gonna join...n get urself a"..


desperado said...

and all that i have to say to both Keshi 2007 and Keshi 2008....damn you continue to be super hot ;)

krystyna said...

Hi Keshe!
Your spirit shines bright!!!

All the best to you!

Jay said...

Nice letter to yourself there. Keshi.

Nothing much happened around here in 2007 so I really wouldn't have too much to say to myself.

Margie said...

Hi hun
Loved the pis of you!
You are so gorgeous!
And the essence of your beautiful soul shines so brightly!

Loved this post!
Especially the part...
When 2008 comes around, you'd have a conscience as free as a bird soaring high in the sky. You'll realise that Conscience can either haunt you for life or set you free forever... and the latter shall be for you.

That makes me so happy for you swt hrt, as that's what the secret to living a life of joy is all about!
You know the true secret of lasting joy!

Have a wonderful weekend darlin'
I'm feeling a bit sad tonight...missing my precious son as he went back to school today.
It was so wonderful having him home for over a month!
He's such a great young man!
I'm blessed!

Well, I'm going to make some hot cider for me and my hubby!
Nitey nite hun!



Anonymous said...

Nachi said...

ok, so there is plenty that i would say to myself as well...the Nachi right now has truckloads of things to tell the silly fellow back in 2007.

and oh! its a little late to be saying so, but your Indian mates would never desert you. nah, 'neeeever eeever'. you are way too hot compared to any silly game! ;)


tulipspeaks said...

one year makes us lot more wiser isn't it? :)


durjoy datta said...

nice post!

and let the year be predictable.....!!!!
other than obviously telling him which teams to put all his money on....!!!!!

anits said...

Sweetstickychewy said...

Such a beautiful post Keshi.:) Love the bikini pics that follows it..Beautiful the sun, sand and the sea. Love it! gives me that feeling as i read ya post.

A pretty cool tag.

Cheeries. Have a good weekend too Keshi.;)

general_boy said...

I dunno what I'd say to 2007 me from 2008 me. Maybe something like "everything will be great until June... oh shit... I've said too much". LOL

Great post anyway Keshi! =)

Ghost Particle said...

Keshi! A Brand new Kesh baby. Im going to be a bit anti social here, if they dont want to come, u dont have to accommodate them. It was jst another game with men chasing balls...its all bout balls. :p

Just to tell you that you mean more to us, me than so many people that I see daily. Life is just mysterious that way, and beautiful too. You hopes and desires are well reflected in your writings. Never a moment you lost track, or lost yourself. You are the best.

lemonade said...

lovely post kesh..i'm so glad sil tagged us! :)

Asha said...

What a cool post and what a timing too! I just decided to look back, make major changes and get even more time for myself. I am closing my comment section but still post as usual and also decided to not visit 50+blogs everyday!! (Shh..! I will be visiting you of course, don't tell others!:D)
Like you, my goal is to get fit too this year, hope I will keep at it!:)
See you later Keshi, have a great weekend. I will see you on Monday!:)

Cazzie!!! said...

Have a lovely weekend... is that totally away from Blogville :S
cheers!! tc

Beach Bum said...

What would I say to myself in January 2007? Since I lost my grandmother in February and my mom in November it would be to spend more time with them.

La vida Loca said...

homo escapeons said...

Why not just tear a hole in the space/time continuum like I did and you can exist outside the boundaries of negative 'energy', gravity, and caffeine withdrawal...

HA. Of course I am kidding, it's called Denial, and it works like a charm.

Lapa said...

Very good post and nice romantic song.

EBEZP said...

Lovely post, great resolutions and beautiful pics and music - Jeez what more could anyone ask for?

Rock on Keshi!!

Chriz said...

AmitL said...

Hi,Keshi-a big smile at this was like you were chatting with your conscience,only,a year ole conscience,and,it also got clubbed with some astrological predictions and some positive thinking.All in all,of course,the future remains as optimistic as ever,right?

Have a nice weekend.

Renovatio said...

Even if you could send yourself a letter, I'm sure you'd rather have experienced it all yourself anyway.

Nadine said...

That was very interesting and unique. I like your writing style.

Stace said...

I would tell my early-2007-self to hang in there and stress less.

Jeevan said...

I liked the beginning, nice looking back through this tag. It was lovable at end keshi, love you too dear :)

Kavi said...

You have a way of keeping all eyes rivetted on you. ..i mean your writing !!!

Trinnie said...

For me that would be one very short conversation. Mostly about giving up Racquetball and avoiding every blind date attempt by my friends. ;-)

wallycrawler said...

Still Beautiful!

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Keshi,
That's a nice experience you have. The Keshi of 2008 talking to the Keshi of 2007. One thing I noticed from your post. You seem to be drifting through life with no anchor to weigh you in. I would not want to venture to intrude into your life, but have you not gotten the most out of drifting for so long? You seem to be just reacting to the events that unfold in your life and this has caused you to have a mixed reactions, some bitter and other sublime. I want to know more of Keshi, the survivor or the overcomer. God bless you in your continued journey through life's perilous paths. Have a most wonderful day in Australia.

George said...

That was quite a remarkable way of looking at last year, I really liked it. I usually don't look back but I may take this as an example and see what I did in the last 12 months.

Thanks, sweetie

Keshi said...

Take care hun! xx
