Last week in Bengaluru was quite a mix of  rain and shine. As I watched the sun peep out from behind the clouds, my mind recalled an evening, almost similar to this one, when nothing was going right and hope was almost lost. I was a little girl in pigtails watching another sunset behind the hills. Naive, unprepared and apprehensive of things beyond my control. It was during one of the darkest phases of life, when time seemed to stand still and nothing seemed to change ever.

Contrasting it with my present, grateful that life has now taught me to be stronger, and aware of the world and it’s moments of unpredictability. Looking back, since then, so much has happened, worth being grateful for! One part of me resolves not to delve into the past again, and another one nudges me to look back, remember and reflect. I seem to have lost track of how many life lessons I have gathered this way!

In some ways, I am thankful for what I’ve been through during those early years of life. It has shaped me to be me, my thoughts and my stubborn positivity to keep going at it. This is why I do not like to give up on anything even today. Nothing comes easy in life really.But, I’m not delving into it. That’s going to be my post for another day.

While taking this shot, I kept deliberating on how life is such a juxtaposition of opposites, where joy walks hand in hand with sorrow, and blessings co-exist with burdens, and triumphs meet tragedies alike.

Our heart despairs one minute and bounces with hope, at the very next one. We tend to forget the present, but relive our memories that replay events from times gone by. Life never fails to baffle us!

Here’s another sky shot of the overcast sky contrasting with the ray of light. May you have a wonderful weekend to enjoy your weekly break and relax. Happy Friday to you all 🙂
