Doomsday Valentine?

An ardent hiatus isn’t it? Hehe. Yes I know it’s been too long since I’ve posted. Too many things happening currently in this prolonged stretch of a time-lapse.

In the essence of true internet “surfing” – you know, where you Google (oops did I offend you? guess not hehehe) for something and follow links – next thing in about 20 minutes you realise you’re reading something that has no relevance to what you were seeking in the first place?

So, as I was saying, in the true essence of internet surfing, I happened to chance upon this particular article. Yes I know – the first thing you’d notice is the domain name there – canada.com and the emoticon in your head would pretty much instantiate a WTF :)

However – so I landed upon this article and couldn’t help but continue to read further. Now to be honest, as I’m posting this, I haven’t really read the complete article yet – but I can definitely tell a good read when I spot one ;)

So here we go – an article on “Forgetting about a love” – How to stop obsessing about your “ex” (as much as you’d hate to admit the EXistence of the word EX in reference to him/her).

A quote from the article states –

“They [your ex] want to feel that they are still important. It is a lot about feeling wanted and loved. It’s that idea in our society that you’re nobody if somebody doesn’t love you, so if this one person doesn’t need to be with you anymore, it attacks your self-worth.”

But, for instance, what if you’re harbouring a feeling of deception in love? Do they give an answer to that?

I guess not! Some answers are so personal that no book, no article, no quote, no song, no movie, no emotion can do justice to them… they apparently seem to only come with time… or so I’ve been told.

As they say, time heals all. Or is it to just only “learn” how to mend a broken heart – just so you’re well “equipped” for the future?

Ooops – almost forgot – here’s the link: http://www.canada.com/topics/lifestyle/valentinesday/story.html?id=b08a9a9d-5e63-4d6a-a2f6-830851b381ab

Who were you in your past life?

I was reading Sathya’s blog last night and saw his post on “Who were you in your past life”.

It’s a website wherein you put in your date of birth and it “determines” who you were in your past life.

So this afternoon, while having lunch at my desk, I thought I’d check it out to have a good laugh.

The result was strikingly similar to most of what I’ve been thinking of in this life!

Your past life diagnosis:
I don’t know how you feel about it, but you were male in your last earthly incarnation.

You were born somewhere in the territory of modern USA South-West around the year 1175. Your profession was that of a leader, major or captain.

Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Timid, constrained, quiet person. You had creative talents, which waited until this life to be liberated. Sometimes your environment considered you strange.

The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
Your main task is to make the world more beautiful. Physical and spiritual deserts are just waiting for your touch. Keep smiling!

Do you remember now?

Give it a shot yourself – you never know what you’ll discover :)

fused!

Yup that’s right!

No more 2 different blogs!

After much contempation and indecisiveness, going back an forth with the idea of doing this, one fine evening, I had a chat with Rits and just took a stance!

The process was relatively easy, used the wordpress export functionality (available for WP installations above 2.3 I think) – exported both my blogs, create a new one (wanted a “clean” feel lol), and simply imported both the exported XML files :)

Once that was done, the hunt began in finding the right theme that struck a chord.

I pretty much decided on “the morning after” theme – installed it, spent a few hours customising it and then all of a sudden, just changed my mind to go with this one :)

Anyways, this one’s here to stay – I made a few minor css tweaks, and was thinking of eventually changing the colours and backgrounds etc. But for now, this will stay as I actually like this look and the colour scheme.

So there you go – this is pretty much all that I am (if you read all the way from 2004).

A few people also asked me about deleting some particular posts – as they are no longer relevant. But I decided that I’ll let them be for now – after all they were relevant at some point of time in my life and this pretty much has become a chronological journal for me.

Anyways, I’m off to bed now – had a real long day today and gonna have an even longer one tomorrow – I’m staying steady in faith… A dear friend of mine called up to wish me luck this evening for tomorrow – in her words I quote: “Fear not, whatever will be, will be.”
