Came across this blog a few months ago...and had posted it on the yahoo grp too.
It belongs to this girl called Meghana (http://virtualscribblings.blogspot.com).
I loved some of the 'claims' made in that post and I think I can add a few of my own.
I've learnt that...
...most of the stuff is all in my head and how I view it is my prerogative alone.
...there is no shame in tears, but you still don’t want the world to see your vulnerability.
...sometimes being alone helps you disentangle your intricacies, but you secretly wish there was a shoulder you could lean on.
...prayers don’t guarantee miracles, but they still heal certain wounds.
(expressly disagree...prayers dont help according to me)
...every emotion doesn’t need words for expression, you can feel someone's care through their eyes.
...unless you learn to be your own emotional anchor, you cannot be one to someone else and someone else cannot be one to you.
..at the end of the day it doesn’t do to sit and mull over what I’ve achieved coz there’s still a long long way to go.
...how the smallest of instances achieve significance and seem magnified in light of a few conversations and experiences.
...a lesson will be repeated again, till you’ve learnt it well enough.
...the only thing worse than a nightmare...is to wake up and realize that real life is even worse.
...you can have hundreds of friends on orkut and yahoo...and still feel unloved and unappreciated.
and that feeling goes away even if u talk to a friend for a min on the phone...or as in my case get a voicemail(thanks Gmail).
...one 'trivial' mistake can scar you for life.it cud be the difference between realizing your dreams and struggling all your life to do so. it cud be the difference between reaching Atlantis and having to remind yourself that another world,your Atlantis, exists.
...the only thing worse than failure is succeeding and not being able to share it with those to whom it would have meant so much.
...giving treats to friends and taking treats from them are gr8...but the best treats are the ones you give yourself.
...NIIT is wrong: Life begins at an IIT.
(NIIT says "Life begins at NIIT")
... Life's a chemical reaction...you break old bonds and form new ones for better stability...but it invariably adds to the confusion in the Universe.
The last and the best one:
"THERE IS NO SPOON"
