Promise

I made a promise to myself sitting at the edge of this rocky path which led to the ocean and I failed.

My life for the past 3 years has been mostly about work. I have dedicated myself to it because it gives me a reason to live, I learn and working makes me feel good. But like I said, there was this rocky path and I was sitting at the edge and I looked at the vastness in front of me. The water and sky eventually merging somewhere far.

Now you must be wondering what promise? I will tell you but come along and read it. Looking at that vastness and emptiness makes you think and reflect on life and mostly in a positive sense (or it depends). So, I sat there thinking for a long time about almost everything, my relationships with people, my way of looking at life and things that needs work.

I made a promise that I will look at life with a different lens. I would never leave or abandon my passion(s) and would certainly improve my perspective towards life. Then two days later I found myself back in my usual routine with my job and I started forgetting everything. To preserve the memory, I’d close my eyes and try and remember the waves hitting the rocks, vast blue sky and obviously the water.

That also went away, I wasn’t seeing those waves and I forgot my promise. But yet here I am on my birthday making another promise that I will act on it. I will not let myself lose in the rush of this life. In the fast moving cars and the metro. I will find my balance and I will do things my way.

About the title of the blog- Daily Prompt.

All About Me

Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.

Blog title, this blog was named after a long research and was selected from several other options. I wrote down several words related to crooked and amongst them this was the selected one. I had already decided that it would include the word Thought for sure.

Crooked mainly because I think a lot,I mean a lot. My thoughts range from something acceptable to what the…?
So I chose the word crooked.This was the place where I could write mostly what I wanted to and let the world read it without being judged.I have a lot to say,one day I’d write a poem and post photographs and then on some other day I would be writing a short story and then I’ll be offline for a few and on coming back you might get to read a social topic and how I want to solve a particular problem.You see it has no pattern,this blog has none of it.It means a lot to me although in the starting I often wondered if this was the right title or if it sounded right?But it has slowly become my identity and I like it.

Someone amongst you would surely wonder how in the world could a mind be crooked? But c’mon it is not actually crooked but the way it thinks and wanders to strange places makes it crooked. In the end it is the title of this blog.

Something that would be worth mentioning here is this is my 200th post on this blog and I’ve been blogging for almost 11 months(started 23 July, 2014).Never imagined I’d do good here.Thank you.
