Confessions of a teen

Compromise or sacrifice.. not too sure about which word I am supposed to use.My career does not demand lab tests or mapping. But it does require loads of mathematics,mental construction,talent and ofcourse practice. I am sure many of you might be dumbstruck by the importance of maths in music.But if anything works it's only cos of simple maths and some can even get complicated.And music is also used as a medicine.If it wasn't for my voice,I would be studying Mass Communication somewhere in this world.And today I realise my greatest asset.God gifted in other words.To be God gifted makes me feel special.Infact so special that now I have to take the responsibility of nurturing it.And here comes the worst part. Advices from seniors..boring lectures, mandatory attendance to each class. Passing phase in every life.But when I was asked to give up cold items that too stuffs like ice cream and curd I was in doubt if I was really lucky about being gifted.Then I realised that kuch paane ke liye kuch khona padta hain .So precise!And trust me this isn't a sacrifice but a compramise with God for all the success in the coming future that is awaiting me.And no, I havent given up ice creams :) but I know my limits. I had read somewhere that Rahul Dravid had to compromise on a lot of things he loved to be cricketer. That list included his best of friends.

I am sure each one of you must have compromised something or the other to gain something you have longed for.Weird is life and it's ways and so are we.One thing I am very proud of is my positive attitude towards anything.Being an optimist always keeps your mind happy and confident to face a storm.Sadly I have seen a very small count of optimists. Neverthless, in a half glass of water learn to see it half full.

right said!
to gain something, u have to lose something.
but Lose is not the word there, u say u lost when u lose something and dont get anything in return.
but here u dont lose anything, u are just givin up by choice. :) and u will get what u wanted in return

jeevy:
ultimately I lost the comment...lol..juz kiddin!!

@the blog:
Now, this is motivating...hope your sacrifices will bring you the deserving rewards.

I have a question,can a person who is dumb in math ever be a good singer?

Ultimately the priorities in life is what determines what each one of one will be sacrificing.

Good luck!!

Jeevy: yes, precisely why I used the term 'compramise' instead of 'lose'. Cos I know I am not losing anything.

strollinthunder: BTW I never sucked at math ! But yeah if a person sucks at math and is talented in music , he/she can definately make a career out of it provided he does not suck at 'BODMAS';-).
