Taking 2008 Steps Ahead...

Sparkling Lessons Of Life...

2008 was a very special year for me. I made some new friends, I cut off some rusty old ties, I learnt alot about myself and grew in many ways from all those experiences over 365 days and nights. Sometimes you've just got to stop and listen to yourself...not others. Cos your inner voice will never lie to you. If something is not right, then it's not right...don't try to paint a different color all over it just to get by...you'll only be kidding yourself. Well it took alot of time and heartache before I listened to my inner voice but eventually I did...and I'm glad I was saved before it was too late for me. 3 golden lessons I learnt in 2008 - 1. Never believe an ounce of what people tell you about others until you yourself find out the whole truth...2. Sweet-sounding does not always mean sweet person, and unfortunately that may take a long time to figure out...3. People that care about you will continue to care no matter what, the rest will vanish over time and space. 2008 was indeed a very special year in my life...a year that made me take many new steps ahead for my own personal development. I learnt to bite my tongue and bear the pain somehow when I couldn't take it no more...I watched as my heart was ripped apart in the open, yet I stood there watching it all and coping with it all somehow. And I walked out of it alive, stronger and able than before...and that's all that matters somehow.



A Self Portrait...
btw I have been asked by many of my friends here to take up this cool tag, and so here it is. I think it's a pretty good tag that'll make me realise more about myself and how I portray myself to others. Also it's a good way of resonating the journey of my spirit in 2008. So let's see what you have to say. Please be honest with your answers ok :). Thanks in advance!


Now, here are the questions for you to answer:

1. Who are you?
2. Are we friends?
3. Something I have and YOU want?
4. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it?
5. Describe me in one word.
6. What was your first impression of me?
7. Do you still think that way about me now?
8. What reminds you of me?
9. If you could give me anything what would it be?
10. How well do you know me?
11. How do you see me in the future?
12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t?



A Glance Through My Heart...
And since it's the holiday season and many people are on breaks, guess who's adding herself into that list? Keshi ofcourse. No I'm not leaving Blogville, so don't panic :). Just that I'm taking few weeks off from work. I hope to do some things around the house as well as spend some quality time with family and friends. It'll be a quiet Christmas for me this time around. Now I know that the holiday season is the hardest for single people...especially when you see couples holding hands, basked in the romance of the season and kissing under the mistletoe etc. All I can do this Christmas is kiss a tree I guess! *pictures myself glued to a Gum tree in a romantic position hell yeah!* No I'm not miserable being single...I think I have the best single life ever ;-). But the worst part is when relatives at parties nag you about why you're still single etc etc. I just want to ask them why they are still at it with a stupid biscuit in their hands hmmm. Can you think of something clever to tell them, just to shut them up til next Christmas or something? Maybe I should don a mask this time, so old aunts and uncles will not know who I am? They might just look at me, turn around and walk away LOL! Ok so here's wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Yes this will be my last post for 2008 (ok, may be not the last...just for Ria) but I will be in Blogville as usual, so don't worry. MWAH til we meet again in 2009! *Keshi leaves the building in her Manolo Blahniks ofcourse...tick tock tick tock tick tock... ... ...wooooosh...thud!...hell nah she didn't fall! ;-)*

***I watched as my heart was ripped apart in the open, yet I stood there watching it all and coping with it all somehow.***

1. I was Suresh Kumar in the begining. Now I hav changed a lot at the year end

2. Sure. Sometimes i feel to just giv u a ring or chat with you when i feel disturbed. Bcoz i feel u will be able to comfort me

3. Ability to come out of any hard phase. Your blogs gives me that impression. Though I am 30, I hav not met a situation which tests my mettle. I may hav to face one in future.

4. Keshi... Is a beautiful name and wud stick to it.

5. Bold

6. The girl doesn't care two hoots of what the people around think of her. She bares her mind all open.

7. Definitely. You will one day give shoba de a run for her money with ur writing

Hi,Keshi- those were some interesting lessons..need I add,I reinforced the same thoughts,slightly differently:
-Always listen to both sides of an argument, before blindly believing in just one side.

Merry Christman and a Happy New Year to u too Keshi :)

mmuuaahhh!

Ani said...

awww sweets that was an awesome post:) very very thoughtful one..

i can see that u have put quite a bit of thought into it before u put it up..

the 3 lessons are really important.. self realisation of one's worth and what one feels and needs is important .. even if ppl say that we are being selfish .. i would say its just keepin oneself prepared.. from getting more hurt.. its a self preservation act you see...

Now for the questions..

1. I am Ani and I could be the person who you want me to be :)

2.oh yes definitly

3.Hnnmm.. Let me see.. the forgiving attitude.. I sometimes cant bring myself to do that..

4.Cutie pie.. coz ur cute.. ( but on more serious note.. I need to think :) )

5.Amazing-Fantabolostic ( i made up that word.. is it nice ;) )

6.Wow.. she writes beautifully..n she read my mind.. howww???

7.hehe oh yes.. i do.. ( not the other i do.. atleast not yet :P )

8.Me but had i been more mature , understanding :)

9. hope that what ever happens.. you will have a few of us around you.. its like the cluster of stars.. who just wouldn't loose its shine.. just because one of them has got a broken heart.. or is in pain.. ( guess my stardust effect is still lingering.. :) ) but no seriously.. there is a bond which has formed.. even though all of us are far away.. but then it does exist.. and i hope it does grow stronger as years go by :) hugggzzzz..

10. Depends on how well u want me to know you :)

11. Hnmm successful writer.. married with a bunch of keshlings running about when i visit you ;)

12. You are true inspiration.. so just go ahead with what you want... dont worry about things..

hope it did sound sincere enough.. because it was.. thanks dearie..

hugggzzzz

8. My blog: I know there would be something u must be sharing today.
9. I donno. May be a hug.
10. I guess some part of your self portrait is evident from your writing, but thats mostly how u look at yourself. I believe knowing people is only by spending time with them in real.
11. Keep bloggin more, i love ur blogs.
12. No, I am verbal enough. I say wateva i like.

Phew, You made me think so hard. girl!

If someone asks why u are single:
1.There is no one who resonates at my frequency?
2.My intellectual elevation does not allow me to hang out with morons
3.I am out of all this mundane shit, i am trying to free my self.
Make up any crap.

Hi Keshi,

I thought the post was about resolutions..
But I liked and agree with the lessons you learned... take it or dump it...your choice ;)
(kidding, dear- in line with the lessons!)

Now, i don't know more of you, you don't know me that much..all i can say is I like what you write about you..

Friend -- i can't stop myself from being if I meet a person...don't know why God made it so...I would occasionally love to be otherwise...but all my trails, failed...it gives me more peace than holding an ill-will -- so I give up fast...

wishes,
devika

shooting star said...

Hey Keshi
Sorry been away for so long. Its been a crazy last few weeks..my grandma passed away, and then I went to India for a few days to do some wedding shopping, and now I am back...only to pack up my whole house and move to a different city and state, RIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS!!
So its gonna be quite hectic for a while. But I just wanted to drop in say hey.
Hope you have a great holiday!

-Carolinagal

P.S. Next time an aunty asks you why you are still single, just tell her that you are still single because you had your heart set for her husband, but since he is already taken....
(same goes for an uncle asking you the same question..tell him that you had your heart set on his wife LOL!)

Lena said...

Beach Bum said...

1. Who are you?
On the internet I'm known as Beach Bum. And while I reside in suburban hell that name pretty much also describes me.

2. Are we friends?
I would, of course, say yes. You are a very open and caring person and despite the distance that separates us I feel I have come to know you.

3. Something I have and YOU want?
I can't really think of anything other than your continued presence in Bloggerville. Of course should I win a million dollars I have always wanted to see Australia which would selfishly for me include taking you out for dinner. You would get a kick out of my daughter.

4. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it?
Simple, I would nickname you "Shopper". Dear Lord I hope that doesn't inadvertently get lost in translation.

5. Describe me in one word.
That's tough, several words come to mind: caring, friendly, open, sexy, far too many to list.

6. What was your first impression of me?
That you were someone that judges people on their character and inner souls and not caught up in superficial things.

7. Do you still think that way about me now?
Absolutely!

8. What reminds you of me?
There is a nurse at work who I understand does a lot to keep the various egos around her in check. She is sort like you in that I see her open to all people trying to get them to work together. Does that make any sense?

9. If you could give me anything what would it be?
A big hug and a trip to Disney World in Florida, all expenses pain.

10. How well do you know me?
The internet restricts us to a great extent but all things considered, fairly well.

11. How do you see me in the future?
As a successful lady making her way in the world.

12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t?
No, I'm pretty open with you. Your nature makes it easy.

Happy Holidays to you Keshi and everyone else. Now for myself I would just as soon as skip the American hyper-commercialism and kick back on a beach someplace. But I still have a little girl who is into the holiday stuff. Aloha everyone!

Kartz said...

We are always learning, aren't we? Life is the best teacher. The test comes first. The lesson, next.

We never lose anything in life. Personal losses, maybe... But one thing, though - we always gain. Just that the avarice human mind blinds us from noticing what we gain even in loss. Experience.

Seasons greetings to you and all your family. Pray and wish all ills end without delay and humanity faces a brighter tomorrow everyday.

Peace. Have a great weekend.

Sorry for the delayed drop-in mate... Been a wee bit busy.

Off to see the other post.

Ah! Single, eh..? You can jolly well tell 'em being single rocks! :) I can vouch for that! Ok ok... Getting realistic (Who is gonna go around believing a stranger in this virtual world...)... Be candid. And tell them to understand. I know it can get a bit 'nagging'. It's your life and freedom after all! Even if that doesn't work, gag 'em! ;) *grins*

Peace.

PS: Hey... Can you tell me how you implemented the no-right-click script? Gratias.

but even though these are hard times on all fronts for me...i can see that each of those provides me an opportunity also for me to be a better person and i thank god for that...coz not everybody is lucky enuf to see the opportunities...and then they find that life suddenly has just passed them by

have a great new year's catch u on the other side

SMM said...

Hey Keshi...have fun over the holidays. We took our holiday break already and I'm back at work today (you'l see a post when you get back). Boo hooo :(

Anyway answers to your questions:

1. Who are you?
A lady, beautiful is what I'd like to believe - from inside and outside

2. Are we friends?
I'm hoping that we are

3. Something I have and YOU want?
A couple of weeks off from work :)

4. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it?
Kesh - cuz I mostly call you that

5. Describe me in one word.
Happening

6. What was your first impression of me?

10. How well do you know me?
I think I know you fairly well. I have not been following your blog for years like some of the other bloggers have. I'v been following it only for about the past six months - so I guess I can say that i liked what I know so far and keep coming back to know you some more

Happy & still blogging

12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t?
I'v told you this earlier also and I'l say it again - Don't waste your time on people who speak shit about you behind your back, they'r not worth it and they are most certainly not your friends

Your first Golden Lesson is very true. I have found myself judging based upon what others have told me. Often, those opinions have proven to be wrong. It's just best to learn on your own.

Eternally Curious said...

Hiya again Keshi - I've left a letter for you over at my post, if'n you're interested in being distracted for a bit when you return!

Jack said...

Keshi,

Visiting you after a gap. Read all available posts. What you wrote to those terrorists is what all peace loving persons would like to ask. On distance, you are right if you can not be close and yet give space to other it is no good, even between couples. So this is chrismas touched my heart. I am with a NGO and have seen things from close quarters. It is shocking that more than 90% NGOs are in it for either money or political gains. Fortunatly I am with one of the sincere ones. It will be really nice if you could visit me at

o3.indiatimes.com/niceguy251 and read as many posts as you can. If you feel comfortable kindly do write to me at niceguy251@indiatimes.com . There is lot of sense in what you write and it would be my pleasure to know you.

Take care
