Looking for Love?

Yeh Tumhari Meri Baatein....

Sometimes some songs just stick with u for a lifetime. Whatever you try in order to deattach them, whatever you try to forget them, they always come back along to haunt you in the most intriguing manner you would ever imagine. And the most charismatic thing is that - they always come back in new situations and tends to bring an entirely different gamut of emotions all along. I just felt the same listening to this song from 'Rock On' after a long time (Where in the past, at times I have deliberately tried to avoid listening to it :P).

There are times when u feel the need to share the joys and sorrows with that someone special. There are times when you miss having those umpteen conversations who used to listen to you all day (and night). There are times when ur cell beeps - and what you get is just not a SMS - its a Special Moment Shared. There are times when you still believe in love at first sight and secretly wish it to come true one day in this lifetime. There are times when you are sleeping alone, yet that tangible feeling of someone's hands in your hairs moving across so slowly, so gently, so carefully as not to disturb your sleep still wants you to feel the warmth across her fingers to its ultimate destination - your Heart.

Ya, i am a big sucker for mush and will always wonder i am writing all this today when my all time fav romantic Hindi movie - DDLJ has completed straight 700 weeks in Maratha Mandir Theatre in Mumbai. Just makes me feel like meeting those people who still goes to see the movie after all these years and ask them just one question - what make u come to see this movie again and again, year after year - the fact that you have been in love for 700 weeks or the fact that you have been unsuccessfully searching love for 700 weeks. I am quite sure, higher percentage would lie with the latter.

They say people learn when in love; well ya, they do learn about themselves a lot - I can bet my life on that. I keep pushing the limits and keep testing the boundaries which were so rigidly predefined in my mind before. Ever since this illusion of being in love has shattered, all avenues have opened to be explored. Love is the most natural emotion of life. Love is the most euphoric, ecstatic, overwhelming joy one can ever experience.But, Before you start loving again, you need to be convinced about one thing - Love yourself before anyone else [Something which i have always failed to do whenever I have been in love in the past :| ]

Self love forms the foundation of your single, most important relationship - that with yourself. The strength of all your other relationships is exactly equal to the strength of this foundation. To love yourself is not simply a self esteem boosting piece of advice. It is the prerequisite to truly loving others. You are likely to have heard it many times, expressed in different ways, thinking it is about loving others. Look a little closer though and you will find that at its very center is the command to love yourself. Self love is a win-win for all. It provides you with an inner happiness, confidence and peace of mind that is not easily swayed by outside events and opinions. It enables you to make healthier choices and the best decisions across all areas of your life from your intimate relationships to your finances. It allows you to truly rejoice in other people's good fortune rather than wondering why, not me or even resenting it. It enables you to be more genuinely loving towards others and to be of greater service to the world at large. Ultimately, the more you love yourself, the more every thing and every one you encounter benefits. How much you are able to practically follow is a Million dollar question !!
