Past Tense Present

Was watching myself transform through some old photographs.
I think I have become darker. I am sure I put on weight in the last few months.

It is a good thing to compare yourself to a past-version of yourself. Of course, with age, some changes are inevitable, but I don't think I have aged so much that I should ignore the changes in what I look!

I found a picture of me, when I was two years old. I have always been excessively fair complexioned. I sometimes even wonder, if I am a south- Indian at all! Well, about the picture; it says I was very fair.

I found a few more pictures taken a couple of years back. I was still very fair. It is now hurting me, that I am turning darker and darker with every passing day.

I have also put on an incredible amount of weight. (Oh, I must tell you that my mother woke me up in the middle of the night, to tell me that I must workout and lose some weight! I have a strong feeling that tonight, I am going to lose my sleep, without her efforts!)

Now that I have written about these things, that matter so much, I am making it a point to work on them from this very moment.

Writing things down, always gave me clarity!

Isn't it funny that we don't at all look like how we were in our childhood.
