'Tough times don't last, tough people do!'

Quite often I condition my mind to redeem its vitality by assimilating this age-old dictum. However, there are times when I find myself questioning its integrity! Guess, we all always look for ways to caress our emotional fallibilities and wounds by way of introducing such witty and abstract notions in our wayward thought-processes.

A mere passing thought!

Love is...

I couldn't find a better image to kickstart my blogging spree in Twenty oh Ten!*

How often do we feel mesmerized and moved, noticing a made-for-each-other elderly couple?
Hmmm.Quite often in my case at least!

A strange feeling of ecstasy and wonder grips my thoughts. I feel intrigued to walk up to them and observe their closely knitted world from close. It's a pleasure acknowledging the true embodiments of love, relishing their warmth and exploring a relationship that has been through almost an entire gamut of human emotions that one gets to witness in one's lifetime.

How nice it is to have someone by your side, someone special who has been an intimate companion in your life's journey. Guess now I understand what people truly mean when they say, that they are looking forward to having someone with whom they can grow old with!

May be, love isn't just about spending the rest of your lives together. It's about making each minute of each day of each year of your lives more live-able and worthwhile. It's about relishing the bliss of togetherness. It's about creating a miniature world of your own cocooned and nestled within unfathomable layers of love, warmth and unrelenting commitment.

May be, love is all about overcoming the 'We' in 'Us'!
Anyways, how would I know about this!
Wait till I explore, and let you know! :-)

Cheers to a new beginning!

Another new year, another new beginning! New hopes, new aspirations and new dreams pave way for yet another blessed and blissful year ahead. Assimilating the same flavor, I look forward to relishing another endearing year here, at Nostalgic Reminiscences.

A sense of accomplishment dawns on my mind, as I look back and recollect the memories of the year gone by. A curious mixture of unfathomable emotions takes control of my mind. Anyhow, without digressing further from the flavor of this post, I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year.

Hope this new year adorns our lives with all that we truly DESERVE & DESIRE!

On a personal note, I am indeed, looking forward to this new beginning. I have already made a mental note of all that I strive to achieve and enjoy in the coming days. 2009 taught me a lot in the true sense of the word and I sincerely aspire to assimilate these lessons in my life henceforth.
