The other day I was going through my blog posts since the time I started blogging, which is around 2008 and when I was reading my posts, I could see a pattern, it was that most of my writings dwelled on the past or to put it more directly they were mostly derived from the past.
These posts have instances from my childhood, especially the time which I spent in Kerala , then some glimpses about my student life and some about the time when my children were born etc. , then I realized that how much of our life depends on our past learnings, many times we derive strength from our past experiences. The very situations which seemed so unbearable and stifling and full of strife in the past start appearing different and seems to be containing life lessons when we look back at them later on.
The various friendships that I have had in the past or my relationship with my relatives has also been topics of my post, indicating very clearly the importance of the past journey that each relationship had gone through in our life, how we evolved, how we interpreted and how we learnt our lessons from it, sometime positive, sometimes negative, thus proving once again that our past plays an important role in shaping up our present.
I was just thinking aloud if it comes natural for most of the people to start looking back when they sit down to write, taking cues from their own life and surroundings,. Just wondering !!!
