I am a consultant...with a dancer's soul trapped inside me. True happiness for me is defined in that one moment when the performance defined and designed by me ends, the spotlight freezes and the audience forgets to applaud...yes you read it right!!! Audience forgets to clap in the awe. I wish for the reward of silent admiration generated from the spell of creativity that’s en caged in the confines of my mind.

I am struggling to trap it further and get on with my life, but the dancer fights back. It raises its head once in a while and I succumb to the temptation.

And then the realities of life dawn on me. Every time I open my eyes I see myself stuck in a world where I don’t belong.

So where do I belong then? I don’t know... but I do know what it would be like. I know what I want!

I want to be myself.
I want to setup a performing arts academy...that teaches various dance forms, both Indian and International...cuz I did not have access to it when I wanted to learn
I want to have the courage to fall in love again and share my life with someone.
I want to trust in friendship again, I want to believe that the goodness of human heart still exists
I don’t want to feel empty anymore... I feel lonely but I don’t want to be with anyone either. Ugh! I sound strange now, but I don’t mind
I want to blow bubbles and chase after them again, just like I did when I was a little girl
I want to dance in the rain, splash in a puddle
I want a small house on a beach in Goa...so that I can’t retire there.
I want a cafe of my own...D's Corner...just like central perk...where you will get to listen to retro music and get to watch popular and classy series like FRIENDS

My patience is running out, I don’t want to chase after anything or anyone but my own dreams. I want to save my patience. I want things and people to chase after me... lol
I want a life partner who’s a friend, someone who listens, someone I can grow old with.
I want to adopt a daughter and I want to call her Trusha
I want a golden retriever and I want to call it either Joey or Phoebe
I no more want to feel bad about showing you the mirror and tell you that you have disappointed me. I don’t want to feel bad about hurting the ones who have hurt me. I don’t want revenge, but want to be strong enough to let go and tell them that they are not what they portray and I know… I just tend to give them the benefit of doubt. I don’t want to anymore.
And for all the real "Friends" I have, I want them all right besides me, present right here right now... I don’t like distances...It feels like a black screen and I don’t know what’s happening on the other end.
I want to learn to lie and deceive... not cuz I want to, but cuz sometimes it’s necessary to deceive others and lie to them in order to shield myself from them, to not be perpetually vulnerable to all and sundry.
I want to see the whole world...all nooks and corner. That ways I get to meet you all as well. Would be so much fun!!!
I care, I understand... but now I want to be understood as well. I want to stop caring, cuz too much of it doesn’t seem worth it anymore.
I am a happy person, but with time it’s becoming harder and harder to stay this ways... I don like being unhappy, makes me sick inside... and its got nothing to do with things like job, love, money, friends, myself - nothing. I know how to smile in the worst of the situations and I want to stay that ways. I don want to lose it`.
I want to laugh again, direct dil se and not just on the surface. Haven’t REALLY laughed in a long time. I miss it. My friends used to call me crazy and used to ask me to stop it. They said it was infectious... but not anymore. I want to laugh again just like that
Genuine, Genuine, and Genuine - I am tired of hearing that word, over and over and over again... I don’t want to be called that anymore. Cuz people first say they admire it and then they use it against me to hurt me instead!
I want to have more time to read, to sleep, to be with myself and to explore what interests me, not what others expect me to.
I want to blog more often... not once a week, but once a day.
I want to live, just like I want, just the way I am meant to and not lose myself somewhere in the daily grind.
I want to die the way I am, smiling and with the stone on my grave saying – “A Human SMILES in peace here”

Is it too much to ask for? I don’t want everything, just my peace of mind... and well it will come on its own if I have all this...Just this much!!! ;D

i loved how u ended it!!
dont all of us want "just this much" ?

September 4, 2008 at 2:03 AM  


This post is spiced up with so many “woooowww,’ “oh-cool,” “ah-haa” feel.

To make a comment, I’m feeling, "i dont know, I am confused”

Only one thing: I’d quote a song by Martina McBride:

Just being myself
that's all that i can be
Happy being me
don't really wanna be nobody else
I know who i am
and the one thing i do, well..
Is just being myself, yeah yeah

I can be the drama queen, where my emotions on my sleeve
Sometimes, I know, I’m a little hard to handle
Other days I rather stay at home and have the leave me alone
I just need some space, just a little space

Don’t really wanna be nobody else
I know who I am and the one thing I do well,
Is just being myself

By the way:
If HE says “I’m God’s gift.”

Reply him: “Sure you’re God’s creation. But then God always make a rough draft before the final masterpiece. I’m the masterpiece.” :-p


Originality .... is a by-product of sincerity.

September 4, 2008 at 11:16 AM  

Hey girl...those were some very serious thoughts, and very prety ones at that !

And yep, like Sammy said, it isnt to much to ask for. Loved your idea of D's corner with FRIENDS reruns n retro music !! Wow !!!!

But well, I think, in this vast expanse of a complicated cosmos called life, general physics has renedered the renditions of life's happenings toa particular. And I believe we hafta wait until then, and till then keep doing our home work.

I wanna have my own lifestyle store and designer boutique one day. I would love it if it were happening right now, but guess now isnt the time.

So what do we do ? We wait. Cz sometimes thats all that one can do. I dont wanna preach, but its just sumthing I have been telling myself. So thought sharing with you would do no harm, will it ?

A very honest post dear. Loved it.

September 4, 2008 at 11:50 AM  

OMG! well well,i too feel the same..."Genuine, Genuine, and Genuine "...yes they use it to hurt us...:( i hate humans!!! and ya at the moment i hate them even more!! I feel lonely ...i have always been lonely...i want to get out of all this studying business and do things because i love them...i want to learn cause i want to do it...not because it will get me marks...i want to earn money,because money has value,when i earn it...i want someone to love me,for what i am and that i deserve their love...i want to die at the moment...so that i know i lived by my way and not others...

September 4, 2008 at 4:57 PM  

the girl in 2nd row 3rd column is hot


September 4, 2008 at 6:01 PM  

Oh you are a dancer, great..!!
Am an avid fan of dancers. Two of friends who are very talented classical dancers had almost given up their dancing due to the professional life. I succeeded in motivating atleast one of them to rejuvenate her passion. You too, don’t let that go!

~~I want a cafe of my own...D's Corner...just like central perk...where you will get to listen to retro music and get to watch popular and classy series like FRIENDS~~ nice idea..develop it in mind..who knows, someday the entrepreneur inside you will evolve and become dominant.

After reading all your ‘I Wants’ and ‘I Don’t Wants’, I was thinking about mine. Gosh..We all will definitely have lots of such lists.

Wtever, hop u get the peace of mind you want..!!oh, that means everything u mentioned..Gud luck..!! (ur 'just this much' wishes will be granted..!!)


September 5, 2008 at 8:44 AM  

I've jus 1 thing....live the way u wan ur life to be...do only things u enjoi...peace n happiness will follow
