Old Memories – Fresh Pen | Series 9
Every second that just passes becomes a memory. You can never have enough of them. This is the last post in the series and my fresh pen can’t decide which way to proceed. Growing older was never so much fun until I reached my college.
From the core
Those were the golden period of my life. I made friends for life. The confidence in my attitude was a big surprise to many. From a docile girl, I changed into an independent girl. Now I was able to travel alone in public transport and book a table or a movie ticket all by myself.
Back home, my bonding with mom changed to that of a friend. Suddenly, life became ecstatic. My driving led us to many new interesting places. And for every new movie, I and mom were the first spectators. I never realised that life could be so colourful and fast.
Life was just shopping, roaming, eating and watching movies. Controlled eating or diet was not in my dictionary at that time.
Lessons learnt later in life
Time is never the same. Every stage has its own teachings. But when we are enjoying the most we don’t bother to look deeper into life.
During my school life, mom was working. When she actually left the job, I realised that life could be so interesting. It felt like I have lived my whole life in those three years.
That time just froze there. Many times when I am not happy today I remember my college days. I wish those times could have been some more. But then I thought anything that is overstretched lose its charm. Maybe it is best kept in memory as the happiest moments.
Now in present, my life revolves around my writing, earning, family and kids. I am happy in my own space and thankful for all that I have today.
Memories are old but the pen is fresh
