Death winked at Me

I got up from a nightmare (or so I thought) where death winked at me.

It was surreal with a beautiful girl (I am still not sure if I should count this as a dream or a nightmare) standing in a corner and waiting to grab my attention. When I did look at her, she had death written even in her smile.

After I got up, neither was I wasn’t able to shake it off (like my many other dreams) nor was I able to stop myself from pondering on these thoughts:

– Do I learn more or teach more?
– Do I speak more or listen more?
– Do I smile more or make others smile?
– Do I react more or I help more?
– Do I run ahead or walk slowly?
– Do I frown more or meditate more?
– Do I help businesses make more money or give my family more memories?
– Do I gulp multiples of scotch or drown myself in books and my articles?
– Do I reply to Whatsapp messages or pick up and call my old buddies?
– Do I watch a sitcom so I sound updated or watch my favorite Hrishikesh Mukherjee or Jandhyala’s movie?

I will pull myself up and find answers to these and many other similar questions but my question to all of you – ‘will you be lucky to get away with just a wink?’

Side Note: I always believed that you need to experience something to believe it and this was no different. The difference has to be in how I react to this now.

 

Wrong choice Made

First off, sorry for the long hiatus. Will surely try and kick this habit out.

Jumping right in, what do you when you realize you made a wrong choice. (Of course, its always a choice. Life always gives you a choice and it depends on what you choose.)

No, I am not talking about what would you do to come back to normalcy. You got a question in March and you failed. You get the same question in September. What will you do?

The answer to my first question (in bold) lies in what you learnt between March and September.

Side Note: Go make those wrong choices as long as you are learning. They are probably your best teachers.
