You won’t get a second life

On the first day of this decade, I posted about how I want to celebrate my life more.

To tell you the truth, I had a horrible start to the year. My celebration post started to seem like a false pretense. Things have been getting back to normal.

I really don’t know why am I even putting this here. Maybe just to record it. So that when I ever come across this post again while diving into the past, I’ll be able to comfort myself that things can always be better. Yes, little things can make a difference.

I woke up yesterday morning I woke up to this message on my WhatsApp:

“You left me baffled
When your attitude towards life
Triumphed over mine👍🏻”

The message seemed similar to the poem I wrote a night before yesterday. This friend of mine rephrased my words. R gave a great start to my day. He made me feel positive about myself. He made me realise that my words are making a huge impact.

I don’t really expect people I know in real life to visit my wonderland. But R has always dropped me a message whenever he reads something I wrote. We have always engaged in meaningful conversations.

Later in the day, I met my uni professor at my workplace. I just happened to spot him. It’s always lovely meeting people who’ve encouraged you, who believe in you, who trust you.

And the icing on the cake was a great day at work. It was literally a “lottery” day for me. It was a hurrayyy dayyyyyy!

Finally, the cherry on the cake is the news that my blogging chum Sam/Robert (who used to blog at The Non-Alcoholic Student) is back home. He’s now blogging at Not Much To Brag About. Wondering why is the best news? I feel my words made an impact on him.

At the end of the day, I felt as if I should make the most of the little happy moments. They are going to count. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.. Yes, you won’t get a second life.
