Have you ever been so happy that it felt like a dream? That happy that you are scared that something might ruin everything? Yes, that’s the happiness I’m talking about! I was this happy when the plane took off from Bangalore! I never thought that it would bring me so much happiness, but it did! When I had landed here almost two and a half months ago, I had a total different perspective about the city and the life I was going to have here. But everything didn’t go as planned. What I did experience here was totally contrast to what I had initially thought I would! Life is like that, I should get used to it by now. It rarely gives you want want but what what you need.
I have been living in different cities since my childhood. I have stories and experiences of different cites but this experience in Bangalore had been totally different as of now. It gave me which no city hasn’t given me yet. It taught me lessons which I will hold on to for the rest of my life. It gave strength to bear all the odds that came by. It gave me courage to walk alone when I had no hand to hold. It taught me to hold on to hope even if things weren’t in favor. It taught me even if everything seems to be going wrong, something WILL go right unexpectedly. It gave me warmth and it came from people I had never expected it. It gave me independence to step out and explore on my own. It told me that sometimes the judgement can go wrong and it’s OK. It taught me all friendships aren’t meant to be forever. It showed me that even strangers can help and all people aren’t bad either. It told me that isn’t necessary to meet for creating and nurturing new friendships. Friendship is a gift and should be embraced whole heartedly.
As I take off from here, apart from the heavy luggage I take with me so many life lessons. As I look back now, I feel proud as I see myself successful in facing all the challenges a new city has to offer. I see a wiser and self dependant version of myself. Though there were let downs and many low moments when I felt like giving up. But then the love and strength of parents and friends helped me to get going. There are a few regrets too. As I had anticipated, I couldn’t explore as much as I wanted to. But there’s always a next time and whenever it will be, I won’t be sparing any place.
As of now, I bid goodbye. It was fun exploring and learning new aspects of the journey called life. And now it’s time to add yet another station to this journey!
Have you ever felt happy leaving a city?? Like moving to other city is for good ??
