Writing is to be brave, it is to reveal yourself wholly. It is looking inside yourself – into the chasm – and writing
about what you see, think, and feel. This is my chapter... This is my life... This is me.
The attitude that says, "The best of times are all behind us" is demoralizing. It only encourages us to lose interest in what is in front of us and what lays ahead. You start to reminisce about the great past that can never be brought back and be saddened in the process. Nothing good comes of it. When you catch yourself wishing for the "good ol times", make it a point to stop and think of something you like and appreciate about today. Else, think of something you are looking forward to, and get motivated about it. Nothing beats today and tomorrow... So cherish it.
