Living On The Edge...

I'm sure many of you must be wondering what my disappearing act was all about. Hey I'm still alive :). Thanks Ria, Mayz and Rakesh for being so concerned. I got too busy at work and things at home took a sudden and sharp turn. Changes. Yes that's what I'm going through right now. And it's not a slow change. It's a very fast one where I have to make on-the-spot decisions without much time left to ponder upon. I have always been a self-made person. Nothing about me is borrowed, bought or forced upon. So, for a person like me, I have no one to turn to or ask for help. I don't like asking for help unless I'm totally near-death :). Even then I'm not sure if I will ask for help...I might die with some dignity. Why do I sound so proud? Well I did ask for help long time ago, and I have given the dues in return too. But I learnt a big lesson. Depending on others often makes you a slave. Some people help without any expectations and never remind you of the help so generously offered. Some others spew venom on you for years and years. And yes I have been at the receiving end of it and I know just how it it rips your heart and makes you bleed. Something that someone said recently shook me totally. But it's all good. Cos I believe that God or nature (or whatever it is) don't put you with people and circumstances that you want to be with. We are put with people and situations that we can learn from...where our personalities grow and develop from those very experiences. If not, it will be one big happy party you will never wake up from. Though it sounds good to be like that, I'm sure we will all get tired from it, especially when there are no challenges. Life is about challenges. And those challenges come in the form of people you can't get along with, situations that make you feel like you're better off dead, sudden changes that don't give you ample time at all. I'm in such a situation right now. Though I'd like to be somewhere else right now dipping my toes in cool waters of Haiti or Hawaii, somehow I see that I'm walking fast towards my distant dream right now. Difficult situations in life sometimes pushes you towards reaching a dream much faster than you thought you would. A dream that slumbered at the back of my mind as a 'some day' kind of realisation, is now approaching me faster than I ever thought it could. That's the good thing about sudden changes. It wakes you up from your sleep and makes you work harder...under pressure it may be, but I know that from almost all the achievements in my life so far, I've worked the best when I'm pushed to the limit and when I am given no time and space to flirt with.

Right now, I'm living 48hr days, packing as much time as I could into my schedule, balancing both work and the personal issues at hand. And I'm proud of myself. Cos now I realise my potential even more. I can do amazing things. I will survive this. And I know I will walk out of it unscathed. Cos my instincts say so. And I believe one's Instincts is the best mentor one else. I don't want your help, I don't want your guidance, I don't want to cry on your shoulder, cos I have my Instincts. And with that, I will get by and I will live, be it on edge or not. And I promise I will show you what I'm capable of by myself. I like taking risks and I don't mind seeing myself dangling at the edge of the cliff. I'd like to test the unknown territories of my survival instincts. Cos if I don't get pushed, I'll never know them. You gottta be pushed to KNOW your potential. Your wings need to be ripped off and stolen from you for you to find new skills in you...

btw I won't be regular with blogs as much as I'd like to be for the next X amount of days/weeks, I don't know. It all depends how my fate unfolds in the next couple of weeks. But I'll be here checking comments, publishing them and dropping by your blogs whenever I can. I will reply to you all and I will also post whenever I get time, I promise. This doesn't mean I'm leaving Blogville, so don't panic. Just that I won't be as regular as I used to be til I sort out the current issues, that's all. Please bear with me and I hope you'd understand where I'm coming from. Thanks to all those who keep dropping by my blog even though I haven't been visiting you for some time means alot to me. Send me alot of positive vibes and your love please :). Stay gold maties MWAH luv ya all!

We will miss you, Keshi...

Just remember this quote which was shared with me by a good friend of mine, ""I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!""

***Cos I believe that God or nature (or whatever it is) don't put you with people and circumstances that you want to be with. We are put with people and situations that we can learn from...where our personalities grow and develop from those very experiences.***
This is quite true. I partnered with this person for my new venture some six months ago. Now the same person whom i thought of a caring nature has bcom a type of irritation.

Kartz said...

Oh yeah, I agree. It is good to be independent. I can quite relate to what you say. But in my opinion, nothing wrong in asking help. 'Cos, more often than not, U *know* the person you'll approach. But what you dunno is whether they are still the *same* person that made you approach them in the first place. ;)

Happens... People change so much! Anyway... I wish you well, Keshi! Good things happen to good people. :)

Always a buzz away... Tc.

Heyy Kesh d,

Of course you need no support from others. Why the hell should you be saying it all.

Take care dear. Be well and return of course when you have time. Will find us here.

Adisha said...

Hey babes... All the very best for the " changes " that you're going through... Being self made is hard going, but it gives you a reason to be proud of who you are, every moment :) Keep facing challenges head on and rock life to the fullest !!!

I too have found, asking for help comes hard to me. It's like an art, you need to know just who would be kind for the sake of being kind and not collecting debt for later on.

Don't worry about Blog ville.. Everyone will still be here, waiting for u always :) Take care of yourself.

Cheers gurl ,

La vida Loca said...

Hope everything works out well and/or to your liking.

Take care. I'll see you soon.

Jay said...

"You gottta be pushed to KNOW your potential."This is very true. You really never know just how far you can go or how much you can handle until you push yourself (or someone else pushes you) to the edge and beyond. I think a lot of people would surprise themselves with how much more than can handle than they think they can.

♪♪HARINI♪♪ said...

ill miss you!!!
but i wont stop u from going ahead!! youre absolutely right an i totally stand by you :)

will keep visiting though..

ps- my instinct told me to come ol cos i felt u would have posted. and the irony is i was thinking of how many people are missing from bloggerland and i said to myself "but keshi is here.. and she always will be. "
take care and good luck.

preeti said...

you rock the way you are dear.. am i ll be off fora while again now. going to Bhilai again for a month.. still will bug ya now and then :)
take care
and do miss this sweet innocent little dumbo :P:P

Mike said...

You know what they say - there isn't pleasure without pain.

Good luck on your journeys.

Cess said...

It s not the circumstances that make our lives... but the way we react to them... if u have a strong will ( actually it s not a question but more of a statement :) cz i m pretty much sure u have a strong will ) ur emotions will follow behind... you have the power..keshi's power and the freedom... to choose your good luck for whatever u re facing at the moment..
Sorry haven t been regular... ;(... i m back in a place where i don t belong.. hard to find time to blog... still reading you...
take care girl


Hi Keshi

Another great post. I agree about not depending on other people. A person must depend on themselves in order to travel over the hills and into valleys of life.

When we are old and wearing diapers, we will be forced to depend on others, but until that time, diapers should only be worn during a kinky sex romp. LOL

I'm back!


Salil said...

Good luck with your engagements. Hope to see you back in full swing soon.

Tabitha said...

Hey Keshi

Sad to know u wont be around dat often..All the Best 4 ur new ventures...I love reading your Blogs....Take Care

joiedevivre said...

even i have so busy with things..i cudnt even look at blogs properly..nyways
come back soon

and yeah you shud definitly feel proud not only because you can manage things but also manage things in a quite managable way :P

Devika said...

Living life on the edge is all fun, if you know how to :)

Yes, Buddha is the way, :)
those who are too caught up with material things will be ever left to gather himself/herself

Have a good break and come back soon, Keshi :)

I am sure you will be back in full spirits as 'Keshi' as ever :)


!Teq-uila Del Zapata said...

so as u have already said.
Help should be done and forgotten and shuold not encashed! but we are surrounded by cheapos!

u r packing ur bags and relocating?

SMM said...

Hey Keshi...hope things are fine at home with you.

Anyway take care and don't worry abou tus. You take your tme and give a holler if you need a shoulder or any other form of long-distance help :)

Jack said...


" When the going gets tough, the tough get going " .

" Adverse situations separate men from boys " . In this I will say strong from weak.

Follow your gut feelings and mostly you will be right but if you go wrong you will at least have the satisfaction of not having been misled.

Hope to keep seeing you. Best of luck for all that you are stepping into.

Take care

Ash @ thy...Call sign:Humbug said...

Rashmi said...

But after reading this post...I really dont have words as what to say? Coz I have been hearing things like this...about my other friends too!! I am trying to boost the moral...will it help dear?

Tell me...I have seen you the matter how windy and how tough storm it is you have survived...and I am sure you will as you are strong like a rock! Yet we should not forget that there is a delicate heart inside it too !

My prayers are there always and dear if I was near you all I could give you want a tight hug!!!! May God listen to my prayers and make you happy !

Luv u dear

WarmSunshine said...

Amit said...

Hi, Keshi..grt to see this's great hat you're coping as best as you can with the changes..yes,trust your can take other's opinions but trust only your own instincts-they'll never fail you..:)
Knowing you,you'll come out much stronger at the end of these challenges!!Cheerio and TC.


Jeevan said...

I really hesitate more before asking someone’s help, and I don’t like disturbing anyone in sort to help me, because it disturbs me a lot than those help me unwanted. In no way I can’t do many things in life without someone’s aid, and this sometime stops me going beyond them in seeking my dreams and interest.

As usual, this post gets me some courage to look into self confidence. Take care dear, Hugs

The Phosgene Kid said...

I have gone over the edge. The world really is flat!!

Hi Keshi,

Needed help. How do you add that you tube video as is on the right side of your blog ??

I only got the " youtube widget " and that doesn't allow me to add the video I want ... I want to add some specific videos from you tube to a personal family blog that I've started.

Thanks for your help
