Life's playin' tricks on us.

Ever experienced that when you're looking for something, you absolutely have a very hard time looking for it. Even if you've searched for it over and over again, and exert all you efforts in finding something, it just won't show up. However, when you gave up finding it, or when you are not looking for it it then shows up! Isn't that so ironic or what? I find it very absurd. I don't know if lots of people felt this. But it happens to me most of the time. Its as if like sometimes, things happen or show up when we least expect it. Well that's a mystery.

This happened to me because sometimes I tend to overlook things and that's just natural but I have a rather interesting experience in finding lost things. Sometimes when I lost something and I'd search almost everywhere and couldn't find it, I give up searching and rest because I know, when I wake up in the morning I can find it where I last saw it. Just right under my nose, that's how I always knew that somethings really playing tricks on me. It happens every time when I'm alone. Creepy, funny but true:)

hi resssaaa oh yes I sure have, and looked and looked,'move things and searched in even dumb places. then I sat back and thought 'what on earth is that I am sitting on, oh for pete's sakes my glasses case. NOw how did that get here? Guess us humans all share some things we have in common,misplacing things. I also think its so silly. I mean why would I want to sit on my glasses case? goodthing I was wearing my glasses at the time.

Good thing or you might have no glasses to wear right now. lol :) Sometimes I look for something but in fact I'm holding it. How silly right? Our minds aren't concentrating much lol :) I think we are not that much aware of our surroundings as we think we are.

Resssaaa First of all your name is so odd!!But let's come to the topic.(Please Don't take it in a bad sense and please do not get angry) Yes!!!You are absolutely right.IT happens most of the times.Maybe that's why the elders(it is a saying in Hindi) say "prepare today for what may come tomorrow".Example if you have dug a well and someday fire breaks, you will be able to control it.But if you start digging a well when the fire starts, you may end up with nothing. It happens most times with me, that I am looking for something desperately and I end up with nothing.Then I just say to myself that I know I will not be able to find it today.But I will find it When I least need(maybe to console myself). One trick works most of the times.I just take a break and then relaxed try to find it with relaxed mind.I find it sometimes(with relaxed mind).But if I look for something in a hurry, I don't find it, even if it is right in front of my eyes!.
