The New Beginning

                    Today, I turned a new leaf.

 The fire burning in my soul is finally extinguished.

             It did leave burns, It did leave marks.

  The damage caused is irreversible. But this doesn’t

                     mean it can’t be repaired.

           Once upon a time, I was a strong girl.

Hurricane, flood, nothing could wipe that strength away from me.

But, all of the sudden I found myself surrounded with dark clouds,

                The dark clouds of melancholia.

I was lost, fighting each second, to find my way out.

       It seemed as if all my efforts went in vain.

It felt as if I was thrown into the sea, not knowing how to swim.

                           I felt suffocated.

                There was avalanche of panic.

              But no one was there to save me.

                  I was alone, all to myself.

           No one could save me but myself.

I put myself together and escaped from the cage of utmost

                              dismay.

I experienced depression, insomnia,loneliness and

                           self-hatred.

          But it failed to break me apart

       Because today, I turned a new leaf.

 

Jack Of All Trades

Is there a difference between being an all rounder and a jack of all trades?

Jack of all trades is a figure of speech used for a person who is good at doing all sorts of work but isn’t master of one. Its usually said “jack of all trades but master of none”.

Is it bad to be good at everything when someone out there is the best at one. Well I guess a person is his own worst critic. People have tendency to convince themselves that someone could be better than him. I can do number of tasks and I’m good at them. So it called being an all rounder or jack of all trades. All rounder sounds as positive as negative hack of all trades sounds.

But if we look in broader sense being a jack of all trades is not also a common trait as being best at a certain thing is. Sometimes, the thing you feel you are really great at may not be felt by other person. Here is the place where ego and criticism meet. Or maybe it’s just confidence.

Being a jack doesn’t make you good for nothing. At least one can do several tasks at average level.

Are Side Activities Actually are Side Activities…

Are you triggered when people call your passion a “side” activity?

I don’t know if I am using correct term but side activities are basically the passion or the hobbies that a person pursues. For some people it may not be appropriate to call their activities a hobby or even side.

They can include blogging, dancing, singing and various other forms of art, sports etc. Being in the final year of the high school, the term puts me into state of dilemma. I may sound crazy but if you are an artistic or active kind of person who is overburdened by the study, you may get it.

Aren’t these so called “side activities” be enough to be just more than a hobby or passion. People say follow your passion, but why those same people question the promising future in them.

Being academically qualified may sound safe and secure but what’s the fun if you aren’t happy or satisfied. This is basically hypocrisy (did I just overdid it???). If a person has full capabilities and is motivated enough, I think it can be secure as well, maybe struggling for a few. But the patience kept during the struggle time is the actual measurement of the desire.  And isn’t it worth it? I failed twice in blogging.

I don’t think that mocking at people or saying that they are stupid to pursue it is a smart idea. 

It is said that, ‘a little knowledge is dangerous”, it must be said for a reason.

When not aware about the things how can a human be a superior judge for it. Maybe its time to do something and not be swayed by the ideas of others.
