Thankful Tuesdays #28 – What Has Been…

Written as part of 52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge which I’m attempting this year.


The Past

Week 28 – Thankful Tuesdays

I try as much as possible to stay in the present, but to acknowledge that I have reached this day, what and who I am, the friends I have, the family who supports me, I must thank the past, for it is through that I’ve reached here. Had I not failed at some steps, I wouldn’t have found myself on the path that has got me this job. Had I not read The Hound of the Baskervilles, I might not have found the love I have for reading novels. Had a few friends not been by my side then, I might not have had the chance to find a few best friends now. The past is something that I look at in a glance. It has got me here, but if I mull over it, give it more importance than needed, it’ll hold me back from whatever is happening in life now, and what might happen in the future. I’m thankful for what has been, but now I look at what is and what will be. Que sera sera! (but without the fatalistic undertone).

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
