[OFF] The happiness in Freedom.

It's new year!.... again.

2012 is the Gregorian Year that has is supposed to wreck havoc and destruction for all mankind. I wonder, if that were to be remotely true, I better start doing stuff I always wanted to but never did.

Somewhere, I heard that, to be successful in life, you need to be desperate and live your life if it was the last day of your life. Well, I never wanted to be successful, but I am greedy, I want to be happy. I recently came across a saying of Sir John Lennon -
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” 
Now it does not matter if the person saying it, is a great man. I do not even know how that quote would change my life. It reminded me of an incident when I was in school (class 10 I guess), I was asked something similar, and I replied that I wanted to be a good human being. There was laughing all around. Years have passed and I am still that fool sitting on the bench talking to himself.

I always wanted to play the guitar. It was a passion that I never really explored. I never knew that after a decade from when I actually bought the guitar I would begin learning it. Now, when I can hear myself playing "Hotel California", I feel Happy!
