Howdy? Hope you all had a good weekend. I was chuffed to nano-bits by the cute crush dedications I received at Mez's Crush post in the weekend. Damnnn I was hooked! All weekend my heart was dancing to this song cos I felt so fresh by it all :). Thanks my darlings here, you all make me feel so fresh and alive! I honestly feel so loved and in top form just by being around you all...you are such an amazing positive energy in my life, you jussss have niaaawww ideaaar! THANKS for being you and THANKS alot Mez for that brilliant ohsoromantic post! Didn't feel this romantic in a while and that was great. btw who called me a Honeypot in that post? LOL that was so darn sweet...I really wanna know who that was, plz plz plz ***falls at his/her BlogId's feet (cos I dunno who) pleading and bleeding to know who it is***
Since that experience made me feel all refreshed and alive, I was wondering how certain things, people, experiences, words, actions, thoughts, feelings etc make us feel fresh...you know like a newborn or like a freshly picked flower. You know that feeling, don't you? We are all so stuck in a rut on a daily basis, studying, going to work, family matters, chasing goals etc we often forget to enjoy such freshness when it occurs in our lives. It may well be a very simple thing or a simple gesture by someone, but unfortunately most of us have learnt to disregard simple joys cos our heads seem to be fogged up in dreams and mangled in the 'Mundane'...and we seem to enjoy that stale life when there's so much more around us to be explored and to be enjoyed. Tell me, when was the last time you felt FRESH and how/who/when/where/what/why made you feel that way? I can honestly say that the weekend made me feel very FRESH from all the love and cute secret dedications I got from some lovely people here...sweet Helen, Jeevan, Carolinagal and Ghosty declared it openly and few Anonymous secret admirers kept me on my toes with their sassy love for me ooh lala! And I was beaming like a little girl getting excited by seeing her rosy cheeks in the mirror :). I felt so brandnew. In the same manner, when my 4yr old baby nephew Dylann (that's him in the middle in this pic) rubbed some moisturiser on my knee saying 'Keshi aunty let me be your doctor and treat you nicely', my heart filled up with a fresh joy...I hugged him wondering how fortunate I am to have such lovely little fresh fairies in my life who really are the life in me.
So when it happens, when something, someone makes you feel fresh and alive, bask in it's newness and live it up...count your blessings, be thankful for small mercies, little wonders, simply joys that bring you the fresh feelings cos they are the ones that really matter. Happy Week ahead guys! And hey don't forget to answer the question in this post (above para). btw I bought new shoes, have a look. Yeah I like the same kind of shoes and I have a ton of them...yet stoked to bits, feeling so fresh! ;-)
