One Lovely Blog Award

Hello,

I have been nominated for “One Lovely Blog Award” by Portia who is a beautiful person and a wonderful blogger. It seems we have something in relation- I was her first real reader and hers was the first blog I started following on wordpress. It is cool, isn’t it?

Well, what are you waiting for? Go and visit her blog this very second and don’t forget to follow her. Right?

Well, the rules for this particular award are-

1. Give credit to the awesome person who nominated you.

2. Describe 7 things about yourself.

3. Nominate 15 other bloggers.

Here are the 7 things about me-

1. I’m more of a loner but still I feel lonely a lot many times.

2. I myself think that there is something wrong with my mind.

3. I have recently realized that I feel better when I’m sad than when I’m happy.

4. I really don’t know how to start a small talk with anyone.

5. I am a socially awkward person.

6. I have kept all my childhood toys in a safe closet away from the sight of my parents.

7. I’m quite a hopeless person because I get bored very easily and I even retreat my steps back all of a sudden when I’m on a path of doing something.

Since, I am not actively following many bloggers nowadays because of a little upheaval in my personal life. Here are the bloggers I would like to nominate for this very award-

1. http://worldlywinds.com/ but unfortunately, she is no longer accepting any awards.

2. http://emilyjanuary.wordpress.com/

Are Memories any Good?

What are memories meant for? Why do they nurture within your being and then slowly consumes you, dragging you away from what is present and what will be the future?

I have always pondered about the significance or the side-effects of memories in life. I have always wondered whether the memories are good or bad. What I have always heard and read is that-

“Memories if memorized without any loathing for the present but just for recreating the memorable times you had, once you’re feeling bad is definitely good but when memories cover your decisions and your activities in the present, that is of course going to be terrible for you.”

Well, that is what I have known for so long but still, I don’t believe it- somehow, I think memories are going to restrict you, create a boundary which can’t be crossed, troubling you whenever you find a difficult situation- isn’t it so?

I have put much of my faith in memories quite a lot many times. I don’t know whether I was right in doing so or not but I know one thing- that phase had been the most difficult phase of my life. That doesn’t mean that faith of mine in memories has completely drowned, it still comes by marking the same difficult phase of life to bear for me.

Memories disturb me, though they were good once but are they bad now?

They- these memories make me perceive things in their most ideal way but when is life ideal? You can’t have everything in life in the way you want. If you had had good experiences in the past framing those good-old memories, that doesn’t mean that life is never going to get tough on you. I have experienced it in my personal life and hence, I write- for may be this wouldn’t help anyone but at least me(in such matters, I have already learnt that being selfish is the best way to be chosen because you are the one who matters the most to you), may be it won’t even help me but I would in any case know what I do feel(that is what I gain when I write).

Memories- they are those dried flowers which you have kept within your diaries as a sweet reminder of their blossom.

Isn’t it so? Well, I think it is. Memories, therefore, disturb me and for me, it is more of a side-effect to your emotional and mental well being rather than proving itself to be significant.

Well, what do I know? I don’t know anything. Still, I never forget to mention what I feel and that is what I have done right now.

You’re also allowed(requested) to mention what you feel. Tell me, Are memories any good?
