This winter has been ruthless to me. Right from when it started getting chilly in October, I knew things were only going to go downhill.

To save you from a long rant, I will just say that I was put through a lot. I was a big square peg being forced into a small round hole. The edges were rubbing off, the corners were cracking and there were scratches all over.

But – I learnt that you cannot go on doing something you are not good at because it is safe. I learnt that it is okay to take a year off your résumé and that was not the end of the world. I learnt that you need to taste failure to not be afraid of facing what life throws at your face. And I learnt that fear with failure chews you up bit by bit.

After many days of surviving on six cups of coffee and a few Hershey bars a day, I know that moping is for the weak. If your strength has been tested and you have come out wounded but tougher, the weakness then cowers.

The days are sunnier. The wind is showing more remorse. Life is looking up.  Spring is here.

    Are there two kedis – one who posts cupcakes on twitter and another who posts this? 😀

    Cheer up! It will only get easier as time goes on. And I completely agree that you cannot do something you don’t like just because it is safe. Even though you may not succeed at what you like. But then, it is the journey that counts, not the destination!

      Ha ha! It does seem like I have MPD but just wanted to get it out of my system.

      And yes, I would rather do what I like and not worry about where I would be after my degree. After all, I am 22, not 40. 🙂

    Welcome back Lady! Welcome HOME. This looks to be where you rightfully belong! It’s only going to get better! 🙂

    It is after all, the hottest fires that forge the hardest steel.

    PS – I bet it’s just the winter blues. Apparently the Russians do nothing during their long winters but drink Vodka and play chess. And now you know why Russian novels are sooooooo depressing.

    Ok so I’m in my room lying down on my bed just scrolling down my Facebook page to pass out the time and I find a post from a friend of mine to read your blog (especially your last post. Loved it by the way.) and without knowing I kept on reading your entire blog. I don’t want it to seem typical or anything but your blog is cheery and funny. (I’m not much of a word guy I’m afraid). Also I noticed you haven’t posted anything for well over an year? What happened?
