Has your bus arrived yet ....?


For a change, I am by myself tonight, as Iv been yearning to be for quite some days.. Very recently one of my closest friends got engaged...wondering about the whole sequence of events...i was just thinking....we dnt need to hunt for love, love would find its way to our hearts by itself. Love is just like someone waiting for a bus. ...
When the bus comes, you look at it and you say to yourself "ooh...so full....no more available seat". "I'll wait for the next one". So you let the bus go and waited for the second bus.
Then the second bus came, you looked at it you say, "eew...this bus is so old...so shabby!" So you let the bus leave and again, decided to wait for the next bus.
After a while another bus came, it's not crowded, not old but you said, "eeee...not air-conditioned ...better wait for the next one". So again you let the bus go and decided to wait for the next bus. Then the sky started to get dark as it is getting late. You panicked and jumped immediately inside the next bus. It is not until much later that you found out that you had boarded the wrong bus! So you wasted your time and energy waiting for what you want! Even if an air-conditioned bus comes, you can't ensure that the air-conditioned bus won't break down ! or whether or not the airconditioner will be too cold for you. So people... wanting to get what you want is not wrong. But it wouldn't hurt to give other person a chance, right? If you find that the "bus" doesn't suit you just press the red button and get off the bus!(as simple as that!) well this was for all the stone hearted people out there ....who just dnt budge from their decisions...
Hey who said life is fair??? The best thing to do is be observant and open while you scrutinize the bus. If it doesn't suit you, get off. But you must always have an extra something which you could use for the next bu
s that comes. But wait........ I'm sure you have this experience before...You saw a bus coming (the bus you want, of course) you flagged it but the driver acted as if he did not see you and zoomed pass you! It just wasn't meant for you! The bottom line is, being loved is like waiting for a bus you want. Getting on the bus and appreciating the bus by giving it a chance depends totally on you!
If you haven't made any choice, WALK! Walking is like being out of love. The good side of it is you can still choose any bus you want... the rest who couldn't afford another ride would just have to be content with the bus they rode on, ugly or not.
One more thing.... sometimes its better to choose a bus you are already familiar with rather than gamble with a bus that is unfamiliar to you. But then again, life wouldn't be complete without the risks involved. BUT THERE'S ONE BUS THAT I FORGOT TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE BUS THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR...IT WILL JUST STOP ON ITS OWN AND WILL ASK YOU TO COME INSIDE AND TAKE A FREE RIDE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE... i guess ...my friend has finally got his bus... :))
"You Never Lose By Loving You Always Lose By Holding Back"
We all are lonely at some point or the other, we all have the urge to be in a relationship... a serious relationship, we want so much to experience the reciprocality of loving and being loved, of sharing the mundane events of everyday life with someone, like washing dishes after dinner or simply curling up on the couch with a book while the other is wasting time on the internet. Those are the kinds of things that touch my heart: spending time together without having to do anything special, where simply being in each other’s presence is enough. A relationship where the little things are what count the most.. My point, I suppose, is that I am deciding here and now not to worry about it.. I am concentrating on becoming more independent, on becoming more comfortable with myself, and on becoming a woman who can create her own happiness. I won’t say it’s easy; it’s not. The steps that I am taking are very small. But I believe that in accomplishing these small tasks, I am slowly becoming the person that I need to be for whoever turns out to be the one that I decide to share my life with. And that is definitely worth it.I ve learned not to give of myself so easily. I've learned that I have a lot of love to give, but more importantly I can’t give it to just anybody...

What can I say? Lovely post. Really loved it. But the thing is that you have decided on something here. Do you think you can hold on to it? In life we all go through times in which we think we have arrived at some sort of conclusion or solved the riddle surrounding our lives. So is this permanent?

By the way, would appreciate if you stopped using colored text, and that too such vibrant colors. Also think about dropping the pink look!

@ Beast... hmm nice suggestion though.. but apparently a bit tricky considering ur reading the post of someone who's named her blog "Crimson shades"!! heh heh...well surely unless she didn't intend it as a Pun!

@ Parul-- I do like your post..its engrossing. i saw a movie a while ago...Ghosts of Girlfriends Past! many people find it as stupid! But dunno i somehow found it a bit Entertaining...even though i admit it was a bit cliche! Still nowadays, which movie isnt!
Anyway, coming to the point, well In the movie i liked one line that Matthew Mcconaughey says : " Someone once told me that in a relationship the person who cares less has the power. But, I've come to realize that power doesn't give Happiness, but the person who cares more Is surely Happy"....It really struck the chord! :D

Keep Writing kid! ;)

@unicorn- yeah ...the color scheme is because my blog's called crimson shades..!
n hey thank u so much for the appreciation..n yes i agree power doesnt give u happiness...when ur less powerful u tend to give more to the relationship...caring more about the person ...expecting less..though it is a lil upsetting at tyms..but i guess love is all about giving and not expecting ... :)
