The Missing Tag

Nope..its not a tag that I lost-but a tag that is hell bent on depressing me!

I mean why would I want to sit down on a busy Wednesday evening and write about all the things in the world I miss the most!!..Well coz untill I actually started I realised this was a tag difficult to end!

Coz fact is I probably didnt realise I missed all of these--I mean really missed them till I wrote the list...

1) Miss myself-I, Me, Myself--Who I was born as..just being me.

2) Miss crying (read howling) when I want to and feeling its a part of growing up...rather than feeling am already a grown up

3) Miss the "Shes-MY-girl" look(beaming proud look) on my granddad's face everytime I made a silly drawing as a kid.

4) Miss sitting with my friends at every phase and thinking of "what next phase in life" almost everyday and yet not having to do a thing about it!

5) Miss hugging my mom tight till I feel asleep.

6) Miss my bangalore life-the 3 years of freedom--every emotion- anger, fear, anxiety, joy, sadness hurt, loneliness and still knowing life couldnt have been better!

7) Miss the thrill and excitment of every crush have had and not done anything about-and yet knowing there's another one in store!

8) Miss being the "pampered-tantrum-throwing-spoilt-brat " always and getting away with it..EVERYTIME!

9) Miss all the fights I had with my bro--I mean why do Bro an sis stop fighting when we become older--Isnt that a "must have" for the relationship??

10) Miss being in control of my life--every aspect of it...of knowing I can make is all right.

On the other note--"U miss stuff only that uv had"!

Thank you god for all the misses I feel today....looking forward to many more!

Thx patient for tagging me

p.s:- No one tagged on this one--anyone wanting to visit the world of nostalgia is free to consider themselves tagged!:-)

Hey ekta!

What I can say about nostalgia. I can quote Frost's poem on birches, where he says " I'd like to get away from earth awhile; And then come back to it and begin over"

But I read a quote and it says "Nostalgia is like a grammer lesson: You find presnt tense, but the past perfect".

I think so too, dont you think so?

At 12:56 PM, Blogger Boldnbeautiful said...

it need not be u have grown old so u have lots of memories.

U can be still young & expert in multi tasking hehhehe

Anand is away for just 10 days na, it really helps some time to realise how much other person is important. Yet times we take them granted without realising :)

Hello Ekta:)
We have two things in common. I also use the sayings "life is like a roller coaster" and "life is interesting". I'm with you and keshi on missing being in control. I guess it happens to everyone at one point of everyones lives. You take care, and good blog. Elisa:)
