Dream catcher

March 13, 2012

I love being busy. Being idle is not for me! An idle brain is a devil’s workshop but MY brain is like a workshop of a devil warlord on a high. You.Don’t.Wanna.Know.

My brain has this involuntary tendency to drag itself back to the past, to go over things again and again, to analyze people/situations/reactions a littleย lot more than necessary. So, for me to remain positive and optimistic, keeping myself busy is the best and safest bet. The past one year has been relatively slow and monotonous. Many a times, it has left me extremely frustrated that I was unable to be as busy as I wanted to be. And just when I thought I’d had enough, everything’s changing. Everything’s happening all at once. There are a million things to be done staring at me from different directions, while I am spinning on the spot wondering which path to take first. Irony if life! Sometimes it is simply all or none.

Time to build new bridges and cross them and never look back! Time to build new ladders and climb up and never look down!

    I'm just realizing that I'm a lot happier when I'm busy. Thus I'm doing a lot. I think the detailed skirt and shirt look exciting.

    I don't like being busy ๐Ÿ™ As in I need the time to just curl up with coffee, cake and a book when I want to and right now my life is so busy I wish I could just run away from it all :

    This happens with me. But I like going into the past if the memories are good….No, I don't like being busy.

    I laughed at your comment about your mind being the devil warlord's workshop. Loved your ending- I want to take that- build bridges and cross them and never go back- and build ladders climb up and never look down!!! What a superb thought and a great ending to this piece.

    The skirt is lovely!

    OMG. I'm on a three weeks break and I feel as if I'm lost. I miss my hectic lifestyle, leaving home at 6 in the morning, come back at 7 in the evening, work out, date my books, other chores and that's it, I hit the sack!

    Keeping busy does cease your confusion and thoughts. You're right, time to build new ladders.

    Nice post! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gorgeous skirt. I like being busy too. If I'm not I'm bored, although a break is nice, but too long and I can go crazy!! x

    I really like the contrast between the casual graphic tee and the more dressy skirt. Very Carrie from Sex and the City ๐Ÿ™‚

    I relate to the idleness problem – if I were to sit still without a thing to occupy my mind I'll be in some serious trouble ๐Ÿ™‚

    That's one of my favourite quotes from Paulo Coelho..and a much needed one for the phase of life I am in..
    I too find it difficult to get over things of the past..what hurts/troubles/frustrates you I guess stays with you forever..
    You are right..Irony of life!!
    Love that skirt..I am on a look-out for a skirt like yours..but no luck ๐Ÿ™
