" friends are not about words and quotes, they in the journey of your life are a boat"
It’s the first Sunday of August, what we popularly celebrate as the friendship day! As I sit at home being remotely connected to the world, life just keeps screaming how much has it really changed!
May be its not the same excitement that we once had in school! Honestly, friendship day is just another hallmark day- where you can rush and push for gifts, cards, bands and mementos. But what makes it really special is the conscious and dedicated efforts to celebrate friendship.
As kids, the cards and friendship bands were a fancy necessity, a beautiful ritual to us! What made it better was the handmade friendship bands of wool and thread. The cards, the gifts, the special planning for your best friends and eventually a chance to thank your friends at least this one day in a year. The enthusiasm and celebration remained unmatched with those wrist full of tied ribbons and bands! Friendship indeed became a celebration.
As we come the to the present, with ideas like "har ek friend zaruri hota hai",back to today those bands are converted into marker inks and forward texts common for all! An FB status and a tweet on twitter seem enough to express all the love! But there is something that we celebrate beyond the friendship day today, we celebrate a bond of friendship each day! As we share gossips, as we share problems, as we share solutions and as we share support. Those fights, those pranks, those slangs and all that fun are all responsible for engraving a special place for each one in our hearts. Those heart breaks, patch ups, setting and counseling, the success treats and the motivation in failure are tied with the string of our friendship. Distance time, differences and quarrels strengthen the essence of life! Not that we’ll have someone forever. But yeah, if you look through the bright light, the memories shall fail to fizzle out! Smile and let them be! Be and let them smile! J
Not everyone was meant to be a friend forever, but your bitterness shall kill all the sweetness that ever existed! It was meant to happen, they were meant to go! Life is planned before hand like that!
Remember those slam books, with promises of being together forever, never changing and being the same, keeping in touch like the moon and the stars? It wasn’t fake forever, you just didn’t know how things would change!
Remember teasing those times of fun you shared! They were there so that you could remember them with a smile today!
Somethings went wrong, some went your way!
Don’t blame the friendship!
Don’t blame their intentions!
This friendship day, just try befriending the goodness you chose to ignore! Celebrate memories, celebrate friends! Its always great to call an old friend for the good-times sake!
Its nothing you will regret!
Life is beautiful!
Live it, love it, laugh at it!
Befriend happiness, befriend yourself!
Forgive all mistakes and care to care for friends!
Life is this way, no offence!
May be life is nothing like a movie, may be it is!
But good friends make good films (good life, I mean)
Happy Friendship Day to the near and dear and to the gone and far! Every li’l contribution of yours makes my life worth a smile J thanQ for coming right in here!
Lotsa luv! :*
