3 day quote challenge : Day 1

Hola Amigos! I have been nominated for the 3 days quotes challenge by Savio from theextraaamile. Thank you, ye kind sir, to nominate me for this extra hard challenge because I am not a quote person. And on top of that, picking out 3 top quotes is enough to send me downward the slippery slope of typical Libran indecisiveness. If I make myself cry, its on you. πŸ˜›
Kidding! I will take this challenge.

Quote for Day 1 :

I am so going to sound like a broken record here, but my favorite quote right now is the one I wrote a poem about in my last post.
If you have been reading me regularly, you know that since 1.5 years, I have been in pain. I go on about my life, with a toothy smile in place, enthusiasm reloaded, and with my usual sarcastic and self-deprecating sense of humor πŸ˜€ . But I have been hurting almost constantly. I talked about it on my blog because I found it therapeutic. I would discuss with Moo, Ani, the Pune BFFs and with Abhi-Nish. It helped every time I spoke out loud about it, but the pain still lingered. I have been mortally afraid to let everything go. I had decided to live with the hurt.

I have also been very stressed at work. Things are great with my boss, Dennis. But the LNG and Gas market is exceptionally volatile right now. We have been hit by a perfect storm, as our GM says.

Also, my dog Moony, needs all the prayers and positivity right now. He is in trouble and he needs all the blessings he can.

So, basically I have lived with stress on my shoulders. I want to get rid of it. I don’t know what caused this transformation, but these simple words made a big impact on me. I have decided to turn around. I know I can’t let go of the thoughts and memories completely, but I can try to make peace with them. I want to cut loose, to take chances and to live without my shoulders drooping down. Well, I can’t do much about the shoulders. I don’t like my shoulder shape too much, along with the rest of me. Meh. 

So here it is.

β€œIn life there is no ending. It is always a new beginning.”

Go back to this post here to read my teeny, tiny poem about it.

  1. Arre pig, why you nominated me? Can i pick the start date? Or do i have to do it from tom?

    And about the last 1.5 years, i think youve been super brave.Especially coz it wasnt as though things turned bitter between you two. When both people really want something but circumstances play spoilsport its just so much worse. But ull sail through this. I know.


    • Lol. To trouble you. Haha. No idea about start date. Do it as you like.
      Thanks Moni. I was brave cuz I got you guys. Dunno what I would have done otherwise. Sighhhh. But I see hope now to get past this. We shall overcomeeeeee. 🎢


  2. Hugs PB.. your posts are so cheerful, you hide the pain well. Life, as always, works itself out. Who knows what new blessings the new beginnings will bring… stay strong.


  3. Hugs pb! I know the feeling of walking around with stress on your shoulders.. And then one day thinking, what if I can change this.. So may you have the strength to carry on and may the new beginnings bring you peace and happiness!
