Not(e) in the mood- 8

The dream is this: that we’ll finally be happy when we reach our goals. Get a decent job, find the man, start a family…. that’s the dream. Then we get there. And if we’re human, we immediately start dreaming of something else. Because if this is the dream then we’d like to wake up. Now, please.

At some point, maybe we accept that the dream has become a nightmare. We tell ourselves that the reality is better. We convince ourselves it’s better that we never dream at all. But the strongest of us, the most determined of us, we hold on to the dream.

Or, we find ourselves faced with a fresh dream we never considered. We awake to find ourselves… against all odds…. feeling hopeful. And if we’re lucky… we realize, in the face of everything, in the face of life… the true dream… is being able to dream, at all



There is a deep and cosmological connection between my birth, my parent's decision to name me what they did, my profession and my education. This brings me to the conclusion that fate is predetermined and like in Hindu mythology, is written by Brahma when someone is born. Example: My name is unique. I did my grads in Psychology. I then did my masters in HR (offshoot of following all the psychos). I then did the ultimate decision of joining an MNC in ............. beat it, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT. So, I have the concept 'MAD' in my name, my education, my choice of career and all the milestone decisions of my life. Now, is it predetermined or what ? :-D
