Going, going, gone

I know I am lonely, so bloody lonely these days. Especially when roomie went home and that one weekend when S didn’t turn up for whatever reason and even if I had something to do each night I still felt the way I did. I am much much better now. I don’t get up in the morning with a yuck feeling coming right from the pit of my stomach. I don’t wait expectantly every time the phone rings. I don’t feel dejected when I open my mail box and there isn’t any mail inviting me for a job interview. I have accepted the inevitable. No this isn’t some rocky phase in my life. It has been way worse before I think. I don’t know what this is at all for that matter. Seems like everything has come to a standstill. It doesn’t move on. It just doesn’t move on. I keep waiting for something to change, something to gimme an inkling of what future has in store for me but to no avail. I am surrounded with people thankfully but then why do I feel lonely still. These aren’t strangers. These are people I have been living with for a year and people who have known me for almost 7 years now. Some of them have seen me grow up and stood by me through one of the worst phases in my life, when I thought I couldn’t go on , when I hit rock bottom and when everything fell apart. This is different now. I am older now so handle things better. I goof up once in a while but manage getting out almost unscathed. At least I hope I do. I don’t appear to be as morose as I use to but hell I think I am way more indifferent now. I am colder and sometimes I feel I am insensitive to people who don’t wanna do something in their life. Not that I have been some go getter forever but how can people just sit around not doing anything about being stuck in a rut but just cribbing. Think I did that myself until I woke up the other day realising how big a fool I have been and tis time to move on from this plastic bubble. It is never gonna be how I want it to be. I am sick of being confused about what to do and how to go about it. So I am just gonna choose one path and follow that blindly or else I swear I am gonna be stuck right at the beginning of this rat race wondering how is my life gonna shape up to be.
I wish this was easy. I wish this was some something that had been planned from before. I wish I didn’t want everything at one go. I wish I had clear vision of how this will turn out to be eventually. I wish there weren’t any temptations to distract me. I wish I didn’t have as many vices that I do. I wish I could leave all of this and go away and not look back even once with any regret. I wish I didn’t have any “what ifs” in my mind. I wish I was all happy happy and did not feel the way I do. I am so glad that in some ways someone sitting thousands of miles away has started making a difference to me. I hope I make a difference too. I hope I make it. I’ve dreamt for so long, I have gotten lost for too long too. Confusion seems to be overpowering everything else. But there will be a way out, there will be light. They say its the big picture that shall finally prevail. Why the hell cannot I see the big picture now? Why can’t these higgledy piggledy pieces of jigsaw puzzle fit in perfectly into one complete beautiful picture? Why can’t I plan this out with someone who is gonna walk by my side? I don’t wake up anymore with questions in my mind where someone is concerned. I don’t care any more. There ain’t gonna be any answers ever. I don’t wanna know whats going on in your head, really I don’t. Its empty and barren up there. It was all in my mind. I made it all up. Darn I know I did. My goals seem nearer now though impossible. I never again wanna settle for something that is lesser than what I can be. I don’t even know where I am going, but hell I think I am finally gonna be on my way......
“What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? Iit's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-by. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”
Jack Kerouac

ah- you'll get all that and more. It's all about patience.

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."

I tell you these quotes aren't for nothing ;)

Hang in there moti! There is much to be seen and enjoyed- only they come in little measures.

waking up with questions can be a little frustrating, especially when we don't seem to be finding answers... but whatever happens don't stop what if we end up having lot of questions, unless we have them, we will never search for answers right, and the satisfaction at the end when you really crack it, makes the struggle worth.

I'm sure you've come across the link below, however, its good to re-read it when things don't seem clear.

..and there's that line from that Harrison song " if you don't know where you're going any road will take you there"

Happy reading and smile.

well sometimes life is just like that. We feel so stuck. But you know... sometimes you just have to pass through it. I have learnt through my experiences that you have to be patient with life and at times you cannot get out of the situation you are in no matter how hard you try. You just have to let it pass on its own. But remember, that good things are always around the corner. :-)

hey utopia.
dont sweat it, ive come to see that things move of their own accord sometimes and often when you least expect it.
right now it aint moving, time seems to drag and you feel like an alien in your own life, believe me mine aint all that different. im still lookin for a full time job myself and the doors before me are not pretty!
enjoy what you have when you have it and as the french so prettily put it, "ce la vie".. thats life.
dont let it bring you down, try not to feel too wiped alright?
and as a last point, nothing in life worth having is ever easy, so if youre finding things hard, youre probably on the right track! :D
take care,
