I'm excited today. Actually since yesterday evening. I'm jabbering away, smiling gleefully at nothing and everything. I've become the sole source amusement of my hubby who looks at me now, as anyone humoring silliness does.
I don't know what it was yesterday but today it's a little about the coming months ahead. Isn't it funny how some days we revel in nothing but possibilities. Daydreaming turns into an exciting adventure. We budget, harmonize and frame our plans on the foundation of our dreams and today. We don't know what the future holds. We don't know if the effort we put in will finally bear fruit. We don't even know if we'll be alive long enough to see the seeds we've planted today will grow into the magical bean stalk of tomorrow.

Yet, we paint extravagant canvases of our futures on a look, a thought, a desire, a need. Just the anticipation has us smiling without reason, holding our breath and constructing castles in the air. Cliche' I know. But isn't it true ? That's what we do. We formulate schemes upon schemes shaping all our dominoes in an elaborate style, imagining the first domino falling in the right way giving our lives the shape we desire.


They say the time for everything is now. Then why is it that we plan for things tomorrow ? Why not just live in the moment and to hell with tomorrow ?? Because not everything can be done today. Certain things just can't be achieved immediately. For the rest, the time just doesn't feel right. So we wait, and patiently organize and compartmentalize our lives making educated guesses. And then as we labor, we hope and pray that nothing jinxes it all. We fantasize time and again of how that moment will be, when it finally arrives.

Sure, things may not be perfect when the time finally does comes, but the cherished memories, reasons, lessons will be the best we are designed for at That time. And IF that time is exactly how we imagined, it's truly a piece of heaven !!

Till then know that life is just about the thrill of making the most of each moment, all the while indulging our selves in these visions about what our destinies hold. Me, today, I'm thinking of a wedding in the offing, with blessings and cheer, sprinkled with love of all those near.



What have you been fantasizing about these days that brings the grin above your chin ??? Don't say nothing. A holiday, a job, that perfect home, that special someone, romance, love, wedding, parties, or even if there's that book , movie or dress you're dying to get hold of ... :D There's always something ....

Me, I'm married already dear. Two years now. The wedding I'm looking forward to, is one in the family, towards the end of the year. Hoping for a gala time planning and having fun since I haven't attended a wedding in more than a decade and the last one was also of a friend of a friend .. hehehehehe

Building castles in the air is a cliche. so is living the moment and the best time for everything is now.
There are something's that you badly want to do but it just cant happen now.So the best thing one can do right now is plan for it and make sure you are ready for everything when the opportunity does deem you to go ahead and make a move. Even when you are thinking of something you are doing something that will help you achieve it later on.For that it is necessary to build castles although not in the air.
By the way I think you will like this chinese proverb better than the cliches.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago and the next best time in NOW.

Hi Adisha! Thank you so much for dropping by my blog and appreciating my write ups :D

I can so identify with that feeling when you are happy for no major reason. Something very tiny triggers it, and the sweetness remains long after the day is over. Hold on to that feeling for as long as you can!

Really like the autumn leaves picture that you've put up on the top!

Take care and keep smiling :)
