Musings of a wandering mind.

She turned demure from  her effervescent  self! She always looked at her worries as something ephemeral. She hoped for something enchanting to mesmerize her soul again.To each of them, their daily chores seemed imbricated.The lassitude of monotony took over their felicity.

Phew!! That was some great choice of words  up there…most of these words have been rated amongst the top 100 words in english language.

Funny isn’t it, how we have come to choosing  things  that are a trend.

Be it an electronic gadget, a fad diet, be it the top fashion trends, choosing  a healthy lifestyle, choosing a school and sometimes even a top rated career!

We often  say this  to people, ” the world is a small place”. I’d  say, life is even smaller and unpredictable and the planet  we live on is almost round ( scientifically). So what goes around, will  come around for sure.

You are the one who decides what comes back to you.
