It's sad and de-motivating phrases or should I rightly term "perceptions" like these which can keep the best in a person dormant for much of his lifetime, and rather make one's life so miserable even before he/she could actually get into his practical realms of life..!
In my life, it's my job/work which has been one of the greatest things that ever happened to me.. I've learned SO SO much; I have developed Professionally as well as Personally. But the best of all I've had the pleasure of getting some best of pals, for life, here..! other than which a few good crushes too.. :P Every single day has been a memory, and I Thank GOD for it.. a lot.
I know this all might sound a little too senti and redundant but then.. It's now or never.. who knows when next I'd get to express something like this.. anywhere ever again. :)
How happy is the blameless Vestal's lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot...
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd.
