It’s amazing to understand how words play an important role in our world. Some words cause heart-ache , permanent scars deep inside ; some words cure us sooner than anything available in the medical stores.
I love words.
Human beings are multi-dimensional . But I fall in love with people because of their words. I judge them by their choice of words ! I think that dimension attracts me more than looks , clothes ,education or money! I even fell for the guy who wrote beautiful poems for me, used kind words for everyone I knew. My judgment was not wrong ; I am happily married to him and still fall for his words every now and then .
Yesterday , my journal was about the words. It was a weird day- kind of days that do not happen frequently, but when they happen they leave their mark.
I woke up pretty late and had to run around to fix things that late-rising often gifts me!
Within half an hour , I found myself with a cup of tea and breakfast in front of our favorite morning TV show in which Oprah was the guest . The entire discussion was about her recent safari and certain human emotions that I fail to understand. My husband and I changed the channel soon and I realized – It’s the best moment when both of us look at the same thing and do not see anything different! – when our words echo !
Then , before starting the day, I read Rara’s post and wondered why bad things happen only to good people ! I know , in my life, I have more questions than answers. But, this is one un-answered question I get pretty frequently in my mind.
I thanked Rara for her words of wisdom .I also thought of sending a note to her postal address, pretty soon.
In the afternoon, I found a mail from one of my once-upon-a-time-closest-friends . I mentioned about him and his certain words that broke my faith in friendship in a post. There was a bad event in his life and he wrote that to me , yesterday . Even though my name was in BCC, I felt the kind of friendship and helplessness people feel seeing a sad friend . I sent a reply to him within a minute ; knowing he is in Europe right now, I still wanted to know if I could call him and help! I wanted to see him back in USA!
I did not talk to him in last 6 months even though he was sweet enough to send an apology bouquet and to call many times. My husband was trying to re-build my faith in friendship , all this while. I was so hurt that I did not care to look back .
But after reading his mail, in a crazy mid-afternoon, I could not even remember the past 6 months , anymore! Nothing matters when my friend’s words want to reach my ears. That’s friendship to me , when we stand for each other to hear and share!
I thanked myself for I could let a few things go and forgive. It was easier than I imagined.I could not be like some people who were always there during my good time and vanished during my bad time.
I thanked him because he thought of writing to me during the best and worst times of his life , in last 6 months.
I thanked life for not changing my friend’s faith in our lost friendship.
In the late evening , during a discussion on a social reform , I found myself talking non-stop about the subject for 2 hours! When I ended , I found that my husband silently recorded everything I spoke . He was mesmerized by my words on the topic – that’s what he expressed to me!
I thanked God for changing the best friend of my life to my life partner.
In the end, when I was closing the day, I finally wrote about bringing three changes in me :
1. I am born with a very sharp memory. I wish I can change that! I wish I can use a filter to drain out all bad memories to create a big void ! I started working on it and hopefully , one day, I can be better than who I am now.
2. I am the worst forgiving person I know. I wish I can forgive people easily and can hug with love even those people who wish me the worst and use wrong words for me at the wrong time !
3. I wish I can always choose good words for people I come across in life. I wish my words work like wonders – healing scars and fixing broken hearts.
