Little did I know that the thing I am being happy for would land me up to the doctor. I remember when I knew for the first time that I'm 6 years old. I said this to my friend who was probably around 7-8 at that time and was loosing her milk teeth. I was playing on the terrace of my house, it was a cloudy day. The sky was darker for the afternoon time. Cold breeze was brushing against my cheeks and making my two little plaits dance along with it and I was shouting to my friend, " I have strong teeth, I am not shedding any like you."
Only to realize later that I am the one who is abnormal to not have shed a single milk tooth. Later, I came to know that I do not have the lower middle incisors for permanent teeth.
But I'm surviving with gaping teeth and still have one milk tooth which never shed!
The first time...
Since ever, I have been hearing that you will know that he is the one when you will just see him.
I was awestruck when it happened to me.
It took just few minutes to know.
A day to confirm.
A week to be sure.
A fortnight that I was ready to give my everything to him.
How many times, you just start by knowing a name and everything about him turns out to be perfect?
How many times, you end up wearing same color out of blue on your first meeting?
What are the odds that 2 years ago we were at the same place at the same time, when I did not know who he was!
Even if we were, how many times this thing comes up while conversations about a random day, a random place and being there.
Life...till we understand
Once her friend told her, "No matter how much you accomplish, more desires will follow. Having every desire fulfilled is not the answer but to savour what you have and keep working towards your bigger goals without expectations."
Only then she realized, she had never loved her life. She had always waited to be someone first and then would love herself. Apparently, she will never get satisfied with the someone she always has wanted to become.
The day she decided to cherish the life she has, she became that someone.
