Remembering the Happy Old Moments make me Smile #LetusKISS #MyfriendAlexa


I was in college , doing my graduation . Although it was too early to think of but somehow the journeys of the  fantasy  world  had started -where a handsome Prince comes running on a horse , looking for his princess . That princess in my fantasy world was none other than ME . But the Prince Charming was still unknown . Yes I started dreaming of marriage and that too   love marriage . Watching hero heroines in movies , enormously in love with each other ,and also watching few girls in my college who spent hours talking on phone and blushing , spending bucks on lipsticks and sometimes highlighting their eyes with gifted eyeshadows , their boyfriends waiting for them on bikes in the evening after college time , all this wrote in my mind that I also wanted Love . I would also go for love marriage . But neither in college nor in university there came anybody to pick me on bike , except my father coming occasionally to pick me up on his scooter . I had disclosed my love marriage wish to my parents too and they were also not narrow minded , But , where was the Love whom I wanted to marry ? Even after my education was complete , The Love luck didn’t arrive . Was it because I didn’t use lipsticks and  eyeshadows or my pure bad luck that nobody came to search for me playing mandolin in the sunflower farms , as in DDLJ ? Finally Dad started searching my LOVE LUCK  in the newspaper matrimonials . After lot of search , via many mediums , my marriage was settled – Arranged marriage . Was I to find love out of this Arranged marriage ?  And yes , after the engagement day ,  I could feel  a slow onset of Love in the air . I also felt special when He came to pick me from home . I also blushed when we dated for the first time  , hands trying to come closer and hold on but the stupid shyness posed  a barrier .  Huh ! But just then another  moment made me feel like  flying in the sky when he surprised me & gifted  me a box beautifully wrapped in the red sheet with hearts printed  on it and also a red rose along with it . Aww…that moment was so romantic . I wished he could bend too on his knees  !!!!! I opened the gift with  an adrenaline rush in my heart and Wow …It was a phone …..It was Nokia mobile phone ……and you know what – it was my first phone of my life …..

Hey !   I  was just remembering my happy old times and felt like  sharing  with you .  Those funny moments in the college , the romantic heart-beating moments with my future spouse or the first Gift I got from him –all these memories are so precious for me . These happy old moments are my asset . Well !  Just remembering our happy times can refresh us and make us feel happy , sometimes laugh too . Many times it happens that we remember our old times and smile even if we are just  sitting alone . Doesn’t it happen with you ? Yes it happens with all of us .


Life has become a  race today  , we are all hurriedly rushing  here and there . Life brings along smiles and sorrows together . May be the nature wants to keep a balance . Sometimes when something bad occurs in our life we start grieving , we start feeling stressed and sometimes we  blame even  the Supreme Power .  One little way to keep our lives  simple and happy can be to just remember the  happy old times . No doubt there may be  bad memories also but Let’s focus only on the heartwarming memories — which have the power to make us smile .

Remember the old times when you fell so many times while learning to ride a bicycle , when you used to fight with your siblings for a little piece of chocolate , when you bunked your classes in school , when you draped your Mom’s saree for the first time at the college farewell party , when you had crush on someone ,  when you had a funny meeting with  a matrimonial guy advised by your parents , when God blessed you with a little angel , when you laughed with your friends , when you shared hugs n kisses moments with your spouse or shared some exciting moments with your family at any wedding occasion .  Remember any of such happy old memories . This will help you just Stop from the rush of life and calm you – no matter what is going in your life right now .

The most beautiful things in life are not THINGS . They are happy old memories and moments . Just Sit , relax and remember the happy memories . Celebrate happy memories !

Celebrate Happy Memories ! Celebrate Life !

My writing theme for September is #LetusKISS – Let us keep it Simple and Significant . Life is not that complex or complicated . It is We only  who make it complicated . We just have to find ways to make it  Simple & Significant . We have to find ways to feel calm , and remembering the happy old moments  can certainly prove to be  very significant .


I shared my happy old memories with you . Now it’s your turn . Don’t you love smiles on your face ? Yes ! Everybody does .  Ok then , Do  share some  of your happy old memories in the comments below .  Smile !!!!!!!!

  1. We all go through these experiences and different stages of life throws open different facets of our personality and we need to learn the art of embracing the changes and the progresses that come along with in life. But while doing so we leave a trail of past and these cozily resides in the lanes and by lanes of our memory bank, and only when we sit back in silence and reflect, we have those good memories to ignite us and make us feel better and we periodically need little bit of these stimulates to gravitate out of the mundane activities of daily life.
    You have written it very passionately and it has come straight from you heart, and it resonates with everyone of us.

    Loved ur beautiful love story. And happy that you still feel the same. I had a love marriage almost like the one u expected . Will try penning down my love story too

  3. Life must be enjoyed in its simplicity and no opportunity must be missed to garner experiences. It was wonderful reading about your love life. I’m glad your “loveship” got neatly “arranged” where it was meant to anchor. Such a heartfelt post! I feel I know you a step closer. happiness always!

    Hi…its so nice to read your article. It send me back to my happy memories though we are just married for 3 years but the race of life has taken away those small moments which I miss the most. Thanks for reminding me of my moments.

  5. Shail says:

    Hi..I loved your article it took me back to my happy old memories though we are married for only 3 years still the race of life has taken away those small moments we shared. Your article reminded me of those moments.

  6. Dwelling on the past can take away from the present, so we don’t want to constantly live in our memories. But there’s value in more regularly connecting with the good moments—and the essence of those moments—that we thought we’d remember forever. Summiting a mountain, getting accepted into college, getting married to holding your baby for the first time—those moments. They’re the ones that are with you forever, but present with you rarely ever.

  7. aw! a wonderful article!!loved it #viddhreads #MyfriendAlexa

We need to perk ourselves on dull morning by recalling the times when we had great fun. Great post.
