The Monthly Ketch-Up

Hello there!

How have you been? I’ve been missing writing for my blog so so much! Feels so great to be back! ^_^

Finally time to do The Monthly Ketch-Up aka Catch-Up of my blog yet again. Like every month, this is gonna be sort of a recap/throwback/flashback of the blog posts I made last month, so that you all can enjoy these posts again or catch-up on those you missed.

Let’s start! 🙂

The Monthly Ketch-Up : May 2015

The 5th month of this blog, and for me it’s been that long of being a blogger. Wow! Well, to begin with, this month I have been a bit lazy or laid back you might say. But sometimes a break is good. You never know, it might turn into some research and stuff too. 😉

Right now, I’m steering clear of all the stats, hardly had a few posts last month. But few turned out well. 😉

Most Popular of the Month

Obviously begin with the best. 😀

The Only Choice : And it’s a flash fiction story written for MFtS challenge. Honestly, this is my favorite too. It almost has all the elements. Well, almost. 😉 You can read and decide yourself.
What is happening in the life of Amaya – the mysterious girl on the beach…

Another flash fiction story for the same challenge

Captain Chronicles : All aboard the ship. Something is fishy. Find out what is bothering the Captain!

More Fiction:

The Danger Sign – Scene 5 : Well this was the 5th installment of the series. But the last one with the flashbacks. Confused? You can always start at the beginning. 😉

Poetry

This month only one poetry post. Not fair, eh? Ok, will do better next month.

Cycle of Recycle : Written for Poetry101Rehab this one is a little tricky. Recycle or Reincarnation or something else? Do find out and read the poem!

Movie Review

You’re Not You (2014) : The movie truly moved me. It’s about an ALS patient (played by Hillary Swank) and her unique bond with her care taker. Very inspiring.

Other:

Friendships, Feelings And MoreMy Perception on different type of friends and Friends’ Relationships; Emotional or Philosophical stuff:

And,

Surprise:

So I talked about a surprise in the last Ketch-up and here it is!!

Smile For Me Baby – (My First Song) : Title explains all. I call it a song rather than a poem since it felt like one and I was sort of singing it out while writing. 😀 So yeah, my first song indeed! I have no idea why I wrote it or for whom, but I just did. Hope someone smiles after reading it! 🙂

For This Month :

Alright people, this was it. For June, expect the final two installments for The Danger Sign, maybe a few more stories and poems.

Keeping it short and sweet.

See you next month,

Keep Reading,

Enjoy

Much Love,

Truth Behind “Moved On”

There are different things that different people want from us. It’s up to us to decide who is worth all the trouble. On the contrary, finding out what we really want, is precisely the most important and most tedious task to be accomplished.

Always heard about guiding Angels and guiding Light that lead us and show us the way to get through the difficulties we are facing. But in reality, one day we wake up and see what we have been looking for doesn’t even exist! Then nothing and nobody can help. Being here in this world alone and facing every problem with a brave and positive attitude is what we need to do just about every day. I mean, we can’t deny this fact that someday we need to give up on “fairy tale” happy ending myths; and the belief of “prince charming” sweeping you off your feet….. ain’t really gonna happen that way! Barring a few exceptions of course, but let’s get real.

When the time comes to face the reality, everything is supposed to change; but obviously it doesn’t. There is no magic wand that would change everything as quickly as we wish it to. Yet somehow, we forget – forget that amidst all the growing up, moving on and facing reality, there remains a part inside us which still wants and craves for the things we wanted; exactly the way we wanted them – the perfect way.

Yes, the reality check here would be to search ourselves, look within to find out the truth behind the crap, “oh chill! I have moved on man!” – What can be the truth? Is it so easy to move on? Even if it’s not, yet somehow most of us get there. But later don’t really bother to see deep down and realize just how much we got hurt in the process. The feelings which were curbed down, the thoughts that were brushed aside, the memories which were sacked and pushed in the corner, the emotions that were tied down and the desires which were brutally killed – altogether did the damage that they could to the heart and the soul which eventually stopped living.

Moving on is not a joke. It’s neither easy nor difficult. It’s basically the only choice left when someone leaves or we leave someone. Yes it applies in both cases. Anybody saying otherwise would be lying.

Also, the duration for moving on varies for people. Time required to finally get over someone, can’t be estimated. But one thing is for sure, 100% recovery isn’t done when you think it’s done. There are times in our lives, when we can really surprise ourselves. There can be a possibility that we may realize that all this time we didn’t really move on; we only thought we did. Just not giving the same amount of attention to that person anymore in our lives doesn’t mean that we don’t want those things anymore which we always wanted. People make mistakes, poor judgments, unrealistic expectations, but hey, it can’t always work as one sided! A relationship has to be a two-way street at all times. Even if a person is supporting the other, it can only work if the latter is willing to accept it. Otherwise it would be like banging your head against a wall and you’ll only end up hurting yourself.

There is nothing wrong in (still) wanting the things we craved for earlier. Moving on only says that we are strong enough to let go. It doesn’t mean the end of the world or end of love and relationships.  Some things and people are just not meant to be with us. Maybe they belong with someone else, maybe it’s not the right timing or maybe it’s something else. That is part of life. I’m not saying that it shouldn’t have happened since everything happens for a reason. Besides, it’s an integral part of growing up and being mature about things; all this without losing faith and hope. So rather than just saying “moved on”, we should really do move on with life and live it the way we want; without worrying about anybody else. After all, we get only one life; make every moment count.
