There is something cool about adopting “I AM COOL

Changes in life; in my mind today.

When a big change occurs in our life, it forces us to change direction. We can not envision a new direction with old set of mentality, resources and appetite. We need to alter them to suit the new direction.

Sometimes the new path may not be easy, but we can be absolutely certain that there is something splendour; waiting for us on the new path. We can be absolutely certain that new path, contains things we would not have experienced otherwise.

This has been my life experience. I come from the smallest and poorest state in India. When I mention the name of my state or city, often people look at me like “where the hell is that!”. Irony is that same bunch of people ALSO ask me; why I have 500+ page LIKES in facebook. ANSWER to that is most of the items I liked in facebook; has some connection to me or I may have experienced them in the past. Liking them is to preserve them for an age (assuming facebook will be there for ages) when I can’t experience them as I am today or anymore. Then I can take a look at these and feel good about; what I have experienced so far. All of these are/were possible because I continuously made myself intrusive and forced myself to change direction, knowingly or unknowingly.

So, if I changed direction, what was the change in my life; that forced me to change direction? God, do I need to answer that – look at the world now and compare it to where it was five years ago, ten years ago, fifteen years ago and twenty years ago. You will have your answer. Everything has been changing…can’t put a list together. We all have been there, done it!

And when we look back to analyse a negative event that occurred in the past, we often see how in fact it has transformed our life. We see how that event directed us towards a life, which we would not have dared to change for anything or anyone. I have plenty for my list and I am sure you do have yours?

My friend Mark asks me always “How’s the trick?”. I was baffled when he asked me for the first time. But it’s a British way of asking, “How you are & how are things?”. Learnt from a movie, another one “What’s the fish?”. All COOL stuff. Cool is such a refreshing word, in comparison to its closest contemporaries “OK” or “AllRight” etc.

We often respond with “I am OK”, “I am All right”, when asked “How are you or How’s tricks” – BUT why so SAD?. Rather; there is something cool about adopting “I AM COOL” – brings out your personality, animation, confidence and what not! And it is a change in direction indeed because? Sometimes we change direction BECAUSE: we feel good about it, everyone else doing it or even for the sake of a change!

Good night friends. Sleep tight, Take good care and smile a lot tomorrow, please. Yes; a sincere request. Just kidding.
