It’s 6:32 AM on a Tuesday!

A warm welcome to all my readers. It’s 6:32 AM on a Tuesday morning as I write this blog. The sky is a bright blue canvas welcoming the birds and the streets like always are oblivious to this bustle. I listen to ‘House That Broken Hearts Built’ by Joshua P. Fields and it sets the perfect mood for this day. I have been thinking to start this blog for a long time now and finally, the words you see scribbled are a reflection of that success.

House That Broken Hearts Built by Joshua P. Fields

Today I want to talk to you about a topic that has been wandering my mind for a long time now. As we navigate our lives does the transient nature of things finally hit us at some point in time? What if the setup of the society is a means meant to avoid this eventuality. Yet, somehow we find our way into the unknown much like Harry does in the Goblet of Fire only to find an entire truth previously unknown to him.

Harry and Cedric use the Portkey (Goblet of Fire)

The boy competes in a competition not meant for him but as he is about to win it (gloriously at that) life throws another set of difficulties at him when he meets his nemesis Voldemort. And although this is not his first encounter with him, it is one where he meets Voldemort’s full force for the first time in his life. He is scared and having lost his friend Cedric not sure about his steps ahead. Yet in this moment of horror, the boy discovers his true strength not in his spells but in the bonds of love — one with his parents. And that is precisely it. Sometimes when you chart off to places you have not known before the horrors sure seize you but you also discover your true strength. Now, this might not be true for everyone but more often than not I think this occurs for all of us.

Sometimes when you chart off to places you have not known before the horrors sure seize you but you also discover your true strength.

We deal with one set of problems when life is really like let me bring you another and before we know it the stack is high with solutions nowhere in the zone. Putting up a brave face we set out for a battle just to find being sucked by a whirlpool into a new world with no tools to fight it. Grappling with it is tough and that is the end of it. Some of us do that on a daily basis others might see it once a decade. And maybe dealing with it is one of the toughest challenges we face.

With these thoughts, I leave you with my first blog post. Do leave your comments and let me know your thoughts. Hoping to learn to navigate life with you all!

Until next time.
