I Know for Sure

Writing today’s post had been on my mind, since yesterday. A blank Windows Live Writer had been staring at me since yesterday. I stared at it for a few more minutes and then went on to check the Facebook notification alert. I spent a few minutes on my timeline and then clicked on a link that led me to Twinkle Khanna’s latest article. I read it and smiled and then moved on to another link of some another article and suddenly I realized that I had a task at hand.

I came back to the blank Windows Live Writer and stared at it for some more time. So, the thing is that I want to write but I just don’t know what to write.

A voice in my head said, write what you know. Writing about what I am sure of or am familiar with would be easy, I thought. Well, I wouldn’t know, until I made an attempt to do so.

So here I go with the list of things I know for sure…

  • I know how it feels to lose an unborn child.
  • I know that one small, thoughtful gesture can make a big difference in someone’s day/life.
  • I know what it’s like to struggle and wait for the success to come your way.
  • I know what it’s like to have to sell one’s most prized possession.
  • I know how it feels to buy it back too.
  • I know how it’s like to risk everything for an idea.
  • I know what it is like to hold on to the past.
  • I know for sure how freeing it is to let go.
  • I know what it’s like to live with fear of death of your loved ones.
  • I know what it feels like to lose hope and then finding it back again.
  • I know what it is to have pain so deep, that you spend countless nights crying yourself to sleep.
  • I know what it’s like to feel alone, like you have no one to turn to.
  • I know what it is to receive support from unknown quarters.
  • I know how it feels to sing at the top of your voice with the singer on the radio.
  • I know that failure is just what is needed to learn some important life lessons.
  • I know for sure that this post has a melancholic feel to it.
  • And I know for sure that a blank page is no longer staring at me.

What do you know for sure?

    • Yes, love and loss, ups and downs are part of life. And we all have our share of these.
      I have read Mrs Funnybones and I am now looking forward to read her second book, The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad.

  1. Hugs, dear Shilpa. You are right. I too can feel the tinge of sadness permeating through your words. But, must say, glad you shared those heartfelt, emotional and deeply personal moments in your post. I’d like to ask you something, Shilpa – how did it feel when you bared your deepest feelings on paper? Was there a difference between thinking of sharing them and actually penning them down?

    • Thanks a lot, Esha for understanding. Looks like I was upset about something and that one sad thought led me to ‘talk’ about other deep rooted emotions too. I know that I think about these sometimes, but after I wrote them here, I am seeing them in a new light. And I am glad that I did that! Hugs right back to you!

    I also know how it feels to trust again.

    Off topic: I also think you might have landed in Kuwait, so let me know till when you’re here 😀
