The Unforgettable Friend/ Friendship

Honestly, I’m not sure what I would do without my best friend K in my life.  Best friends are there for your ups and downs and K has been by my side through it all.

When I think of what a best friend is I picture him and how he impacted my life for the better.  He is the one who keeps me going and motivates me to do my best.  When days are gloomy, he is the one who makes them shine.

Without K in my life, I wouldn’t have my other half. He brings out the real me and let me be myself without judging.  He goes along with my behavior even when it’s embarrassing for him.

He is the one that I turn to for absolutely everything.  To real life problems to telling him about my every move I wouldn’t rather share everything with anyone else.  He is the one who I automatically think of when I see something crazy happen or want to just blab on and on.

Thank you for being my backbone.  Thank you for being the peanut butter to my jelly.  Thank you for being an individual that I look up to.  Thank you for being my inspiration to live my life to the fullest and to never give up on my dreams.  Thank you for allowing me to vent and complain to you constantly.  Thank you for always helping me through everything and guiding me in the right direction.

K you are the one who made me realize that I don’t need to change for anyone and I know that no matter what you will always be there for me.  I may not show how much he means to me but I know that I wouldn’t be who I am today without his presence in my life.  I love you with all my heart and wouldn’t rather have anyone else as my crazy, beautiful sidekick of a best friend.

Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest, it’s about who walked in to your life, said ‘I’m here for you,’ and proved it and I am the HAPPIEST person because K you have proved it. Happy Friendship Day.

I am happy when…

Everyone in this world, with little or much, has something that makes them happy.  One thing that makes me happy is discovering a good book. Not one of those “lousy” books that people have written in the last couple decades, but one of those wholesome, clean, and well-written books that people used to write. I’m not saying that all the authors writing in the 21st Century are writing lousy and detestable books—there are quite a large number of excellent authors writing noteworthy books now! But what I am trying to say is this—in my opinion, I think that as this generation and the next generation pass, readers and publishers of what they think are good books have been slowly letting go and letting themselves think that whatever they consider is a good book, is indeed a good book.

I am happy when I laugh. It is true laughter is the best medicine. Whenever you feel sadness approaching go and laugh it off. When you are thinking deeply about life instead of thinking about it in a bad way just laugh at life. I laugh about my life every day. Life is weird it is okay to let things go and laugh it off.

My best friend is probably the most amazing person in my life. I am happy when we talk. I can talk to him about anything, anytime, and he’ll know exactly what to say. He’s the person I trust most, and talking to him is always a highlight of my day. I honestly think the world would be a better place if everyone had someone as great as him in their lives. Nothing makes me happier than he does.

WOW – Write Your Life Story



1. I have different sides of my life. I feel sorrow, love, hate, care and has totally different emotions at different times.

2. My life will never get boring, everyday that I live, there will always be something exciting going on. Life never gets boring for me.

3. I cannot live without music, it is a big part of my life. Music cheers me up instantly.

4. For me, life without randomness is too boring and my randomness comes from my observations. I am very observant and my observations make me ponder deeply.

5. I love having surprises in life; whether they are good or bad they sculpt me.

6. I likes to find the good in bad times. I feel strongly about making the best of everything I have in my life.

7. I set goals for myself in an effort to pursue my passions. I am passionate about my service to others.

8. I am someone who can’t live without something to do everyday. I always have to be doing something to keep me entertained even though taking a break and relaxing can be good.

9. I believe in love, self trust, honesty and gratitude.

10. I am funny, kind, nice, generous, caring, thoughtful, consoling, curious, smart, artistic, creative, innovative, clever, benevolent, and loving.

I strong believe there are two sides to every coin and that sums up my life well. I am outgoing and sociable, but on the other hand I am reserved and speak less. You can find me warm and loving, but I am also capable of cutting someone down with my sharp tongue. I made up of opposites and contradictions. There are so many different elements that make up this puzzle that is me – a unique individual and this is my life story.

Sunday Surprise #MagicOfWarmth

It was 10 am of a Sunday morning and he was still on his bed lazing. He had been travelling through the week and just wanted to sleep till late. He checked his phone expecting notifications from me but finding none, he thought I must be sleeping late like him and he dozed off. Suddenly his phone rang after few minutes and it was my call. The call came unexpected to him as we spoke till midnight. He immediately attended my call, as I spoke he sensed nervousness in my voice. It made him worried and he asked me where was I calling from?

Without any seconds gap, I instead asked where he is right now? He replied, at home but why? I asked him how long it would take him to reach Airport. This made him worried and curious. He asked me what happened and to this I replied playfully ‘I have just landed at the airport, can we meet now?’ This confused him and he shot me with so many questions, to which I replied ‘Come quickly I will tell you everything’.

He left to the Airport but amidst all these hurriedness thousand questions ran in his mind as to what I was doing in the airport as we spoke till late last night and I never told him that I was travelling to Delhi. He was happy, worried and anxious to meet me. He reached and saw me at the arrival terminal, I immediately ran towards him and we hugged each other. Seeing me smiling, all his tensions vanished. He could not wait and asked me all that he had in his mind and all I did was, I just smiled at him and boy, he fell in love with me all over again and kissed me on my forehead, handed me the gift which he had been forgetting to give me not once but thrice. The gift and his kisses melted me instantly and I hugged him tightly that moment I experienced the magic of warmth. I was so happy unwrapping it and said ‘finally my gift reached me’.

I know he loves surprises and this kind, was too special, where he never expected we would be meeting which took his breath away. That Sunday will remain as one of the best of our lives. I wish to give him surprises often. As I end sharing this memory, let me tell you, we are meeting very soon and I have planned surprise(s) for him.
