The Comeback

Yes, I am back from vacation.
Back from two weeks of fun, good food and family. And back to my regular life.

The past few weeks were good, and the vacation was even better because it helped sort out the few things messing around in my head that I mentioned in the last post and made me see life in the true sense it is meant to be seen.

I realized that you don’t always need a plan, and that things won’t always go according to the one you make.
And that its not even a bad thing.

I realized I should be thankful for everything I have, which includes my family, my friends, the job I have, the food I eat, my new laptop, iPod, PSP and high-speed wireless internet :)

I realized there is no such thing as a dead-end career, and that all jobs will eventually kill your potential unless you keep the edge. And keep moving forward.

I realized knowledge is just about the only thing you can truly own, and that it doesn’t always need to come in a standard package as an MBA or some other degree.
And that to seek knowledge is a quest upon us all till the day we die.

I realized there is more to life that having a job, making money, spending some of it and putting away everything else.
And that money is merely a tool that should help with a greater cause in life.

I realized that time is the most important thing people waste, and many don’t even realize what a crime it really is.
And that it is for that same reason that too much sleep is the refuge of cowards.

I realized... that I realized much today.
I’m really glad I had that vacation; I feel fresh with a ton of ideas, and there’s loads of stuff I wanna write about!

The Square Circle is back in business.

Time being the only true asset and the fact that knowledge need not always be in packaged form :)

@Dhanya

Thx:)
And I'm thankful for all the electronics I have because...well I guess because that's me - a gadget freak.
And no, iPods and wireless internet are quite cheap here where I live
^_^


@Issam
About time being an asset I realized when I was in Chennai last week.
Almost everyone I know works 10-12hr shifts at office, and couldn't even make time to meet up.


@Ela
My last holiday, India: Chennai, Coimbature and Cuddalore.

@Mohammed Musthafa
Na, I don't hope to do more than 6-7 posts a month anyway.
I do like to leave time for people to read.

@Darshan
Thx dude, I realized that while I was on vacation too...that far too many ppl I know stop learning once they hit a barrier, like get a job or get married or whatever.
