Opened doors…

Opened doors…

#100DaysOfBlogging Day 6

I had recently done a quotes challenge on Facebook, where I had shared quotes I love for a week. I find some quotes to be inspiring when the mood is low, or just relatable to what I feel. Maybe that’s why they say “Been there, done that.” Recently, Tina Basu had tagged me to do a 3 day quote challenge on my blog.

The rules are simple.

  • Post for three consecutive days
  • Post one to three quotes each day
  • Tag three blogger buddies each day to attempt the challenge.

I’m bending the first and last rules slightly. I’m going to post on alternate days, not consecutive. And I’m leaving the tag open for any blogger buddy to take it up.

Some part of life is about chasing dreams, if not all of it. So we’re determined to unlock the doors that lead toward it. Yet, life is as unpredictable as the weather, maybe even more unpredictable. I’ve once been so focused on a dream that I didn’t realize that there was another opportunity opening up for me. It took me a while to notice it, but I am glad that I did. It brought happiness. Maybe it is cliched, but life is too short to be anything but happy. The more we brood, the more we go into depression. The quicker one realizes that and leaves obsessing over that closed door, the better.

What about you, my dear reader? Can you relate to this quote?

From 23rd September, exactly 100 days are left in the year, the idea is to write on each of these days. A few other friends chose their own themes. I thought I’d collaborate with Aniesha bon on the challenge. We’re choosing topics on alternate days, and each day, we’re writing on the same topic too. I chose the topic HAPPINESS for Day 6.

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.

  1. Being obsessed over closed doors is a common human trait. Wallowing in misery is often considered a strange sort of penance. But the sooner we realise neither is healthy, the better we become as a person. Amazing quote and an even better post, Leo!
