Taken for GRANTED…!!

So after my first few posts.. I kind of got into this blogging thing.. I like how it puts together what goes on in my head… so I can refer to it later..
Anyway.. I really wanted to write about something I LIKE.. nothing came to my mind ..
but just a while back … as I was going through pictures of one of my facebook buddies…. I was slammed with a sudden feeling of nostalgia.. I said to myself “what the hell am I doing here..!?!?!?.. I should be there.. ”

She was standing in the beach.. a cool/warm breeze blew her hair in such an effortless way… she has got tanned from the constant sun ..and looked really happy.. her eyes were smiling .. like to say I’m exactly where I should be !!!..the coconut trees added a perfect bit of greenery on the side…

While all this was going on I was stuck in a cubical at work.. didn’t know if it was snow or freezing rain outside.. (there are no windows close to wear my cubical is… ).. of course the cold and the winter darkness are highly expected..In my mind I was thinking “what the hell am I doing here.. !?!?!?”

So I miss the sunshine.. the cool breeze sweeping across the ocean… wearing light summary clothes…
Believe it or not.. as I was growing up in this beautiful island country of mine..before I moved to where I am now.. . I used to think “this damn sun … the salty tasting thick wind of the ocean.. the humidity.. and the traffic and all that… ” ….. And all that …is a bit out of a lot .. that I have taken for GRANTED.. !!

When I was a kid …every weekend or most free time we had.. going to the beach and playing in the sand and walking the waves.. and making sand castles … and counting ships that came to the shore as the sun sets in the background.. were some of our popular games.. …

AND Then…

I got bored.. all my friends got bored..everyone got busy with other things.. school… exams.. life.. we forgot all about the beach and the games we used to play… 10 years later.. I feel miserable thinking about it now.. I should have known better… !!! I should have spent more time at the beach.. listening to the sound of the waves and the traffic…!! Now beach is a luxury I can’t afford..

All I have now.. are the sea shells we collected from many trips to the beach …. which I held on to .. after all these years.. 🙂 I’m glad I did …. ….
