Realizations on Easter Sunday

Trust is…

…wearing skates, trying to glide with overflowing fear, yet overcoming the fright and moving forward because there are those arms right behind you that have promised never to let you fall. You don’t have to see them, you don’t have to feel them every second…but when you need support, they are right there to hold on to…all you need to do is wave or cry out once or maybe do a short ‘instability’ dance and there they are, giving you all the help you need.

But, of course, there are those moments when you feel like you are going to fall, you scream and shout and do all sorts of drama, still the supportive hands don’t show up because they have more confidence in you than you do. As much as you curse that daring act then, you realize that it’s all worth it; that it’s all part of the teaching-learning process.


Wonder is…

…when a toddler, on his still wobbly feet, succeeds in walking past you, on skates. His pace much steadier, mind more fearless, heart more pleased…leaves you wondering where that once bold attitude of yours got dropped during this journey called life. What all growing up does to you – losing the innocence, the brave heart and what not…why oh why?


Learning to skate, relaxing by the river, gulping down ice cream at a newly discovered coffee / ice cream shop afterward…a nice Sunday, all in all. How was yours?

    You know how they say ignorance is bliss — that’s what childhood is about. There isn’t much knowledge about possible consequences or the future and hence no worry or fear. Unfortunately, once this brain of ours starts to understand it all, you get fear and worry and everything else! 🙂

    Sounds like you had a lovely Sunday. Had a relaxing Sunday here as well…what with almost everything closed…ended up renting a couple of movies one of which was amazing, drinking wine, having good conversation and good food…all at home. 🙂

    But it’s now Monday evening here and I cannot believe the long weekend is finished and it’s back to the routine from tomorrow 😦

    so you had Monday off too? How lucky! We didn’t even have the day off on Friday at our company..I had to take off :D..

    Have a fun filled week, Psych!

    I freeze when I go to do ice-skating and its not coz of the ice 😛
    Good job T! Go girl! 😀

    i’m very scared of ice skating 😀 the one I did this weekend was regular inline skating.. 🙂

    I fell down when i was once(my first and last) trying to ice skate and this person (who was good at it) wanted to lift me up,but i simply don’t how to get up and i was lying down for 3 mins or so and gosh so embarrassed….imagine this was in an ice rink inside a mall…

    Good luck and enjoy,i think it would be difficult for couple of classes and then you might feel like a free bird!

    😀 I know how it feels..when I went ice skating it happened many times 😆 I haven’t been back yet, maybe this winter I’ll try ice skating again…will have to overcome the fear by then 😛

    I tried inline skating during the weekend…not as bad as ice skating, but still a bit scary 😀

    Coughed and sneezed and whined. The flu’s come a visiting at my place 😦

    hugs! hope you are feeling better

    Perfect!! so true that we lose trust and our sense of wonder as we grow up 😦 .. but then kids and their ways make us introspect and there’s a certain beauty in that!!

    yeah true 🙂


  12. #16 by Reema on April 7, 2010 - 11:44 am

    Oh I had always wanted to learn skating but never could

    you still can… 😀
