The only thing we can truly never get back is words. Everyone says time is one of the things we can’t get back, but how can we take back something we never owned?
For me it’s words. Words once spoken can truly never come back. You can make amends, you can go back on your word, but what is once said or written, can never be wiped away.
Off all the things that I wanted to start writing about, I never thought it would be about, ‘Words.’ Maybe it is because, I have frequently said too much or never said enough. I must say that I’ve rarely been accused of not saying enough. It’s probably only at work that has ever come up.
It is most likely because, I will be putting into words my most intimate thoughts. Every wish that I have spoken out loud has come true. One of them, most remarkably is where I work today.
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be in San Francisco. It began with something I read about the 'Fisherman's Wharf' years ago. I've read countless books that have taken me to almost every place on this earth. But San Francisco was always it for me. A few years ago, I made an off-hand comment to my dad, that one day I would work at 333 Market Street.
And that is where I am writing from (there is a Star Bucks in the lobby ;)
And this is where I am putting in words, my 333 Market Street Dreams.
Some of my favorites Clichés can be summed up in one straight forward sentence. Live the life you want to with the time you are blessed with. ‘They’ say that one truly comes into one’s own, when one accepts who one is. According to me, it’s a lot of B.S, pardon the abbreviation.
Who I am today, is not who I was five years ago. Today my life is about acceptance; my life is about living true to myself and honest to the God within me.
My gift is to write, with a unique perspective about the world around me. My secret desire would be to live the life of Carrie Bradshaw, except I don’t want to spend my 20’s, 30’s or 40’s hunting for Mr. Big.
On her show last week, Oprah Winfrey said that the Universe is always talking to us. Well for me, that voice is like a boom box in a 12 year old’s room.
So this is a start, to write about the things I see around, about the adventures I go on, it’s to me and it’s to the Universe that calls me.
Some days writing is easier others,at times, a gut wrenching experience. But always, it is the most honest thing I ever undertake.
The best dreams are the ones played out in actuality, writing this is my first step towards it…..
May you live your dreams too.
