Wild and Free

Meeting strangers in a new city, partying with them and getting asked out by three extremely good looking guys, was something I thought happened only in movies or maybe to really beautiful women but apparently I was wrong because it happened to me.

I went on a soul-searching road trip and got my confidence back, which was lost when 2016 showed its ugly face. I had a horrible year but I’m not complaining because I’m happy about it. Whatever happened, taught me a lesson, made me stronger and led the way to this amazing road-trip, which put a little magic back in my life.

I wanted to go on a road trip for a long time now, but I had the “someday disease.”

“I’ll go on the trip someday”, “I’ll become a writer someday”, “I will do all of it some day.”

Someday was a day that was never gonna arrive, so one day (which is way better than someday) I just packed my bags and went on the road trip with a friend, which I had planned in my head a million times.

It was an experience I will never forget. I was low on confidence, energy and almost everything when I left for the trip, but as soon as I was on the road, everything changed. Nature has a way of putting your broken soul back together.

We went to Goa, Polalem beach and met a Spanish group of exotic boys and girls in the evening, who had put up a campfire on the beach. I had taken all my journals which was filled with so much negativity that I wanted to burn them and the opportunity arrived. So my friend asked them if we could join them and they said “yes!” We sat there till 2 AM burning all my journals (7 really fat books) and drinking with these amazing Spanish people. I was so drunk, I don’t even remember anyone’s name but we had such a good time, genuine conversations about love, life and universe, which I remember clearly.

The next day, when I was sober, I read.

I had packed my favourite novel “Wild by Cheryl Strayed” and did some pretty wild things as well but I’m gonna spare you with all the details of my trip because it will be really long and I’m planning to write about it in a separate post called “Goa Calling”.

So don’t wait for your “someday”, chose today.

Don’t give up

You might face a thousand problems in life, actually I’m pretty sure you will face a lot more. Don’t stress about it, don’t get upset because no matter what the problem is- if it doesn’t kill you it makes you stronger. Every problem you have in life will teach you a lesson, learn and move on.

Look around, the world is filled with magical things. Every day is a gift, marvel at the beauty of a tree or look at yourself in mirror, see how every part of you is beautiful, feel the way your organs work every day without worrying about failure. Get inspired by every little problem, get inspired to be happy. Read a lot of books, get lost in another world. Embrace everything in life, love life like you have no tomorrow.

Don’t be afraid of anything, be your true self. Listen to music, not just listen get immersed in it. Learn the lyrics, sing it even if you sound bad, just sing and dance and live. Life is uneven, find your balance.

Daily Prompt- Uneven

Love

Everyone talks about love as being this sweet and wonderful feeling that they get, when some boy/girl or family member they like a lot are sweet to them. It’s a feeling, but its a chaotic feeling. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about love, I find beauty in a confused and disordered love affair. I mostly find simplicity in it. I know it sounds contradicting, so let me explain.

Love is the most simplest thing on earth, but we, the people complicate it so much that we often use the term “lost hope in love” or that “love does not exist for me anymore.” However, the truth is that everyone confuses the word love with “hurt”, especially when they go through a heartbreak. Your hurting because of a betrayal, death, or any other reason it may be, but not because you loved.

The feeling of love comes from within you and you connect this feeling to various things, like you boyfriend/girlfriend, parents, your hobbies or any other thing. But that’s where everything gets chaotic, you give someone else the power to control your feelings. You set expectations for your loved ones, they need to remember every anniversary and buy gifts or they need to know how you’re feeling without explanation or something else. When they don’t or if they forget, then blame love for it.

When people are happy, they connect love with “immense joy”; when they are sad they connect it to “awful” or any other horrible word. That’s the specialty of love though, it’s just one word, one emotion but connected to many emotions, it’s chaotic.
