#AtoZChallenge- Crush Chronicle

The semester just began and Ria was excited to be back in college with her friends. Her first year of engineering was going good with lots of fun and frolic. Though she was surrounded with friends experiencing and enjoying puppy love, Ria never really felt the need for it, nor met any guy who made her crave for it.

One fine monday afternoon, Ria accompanied by her gang of friends, was heading towards the Electronics building from the IT department for lab sessions. As they walked away bantering, Ria noticed someone who caught her attention. A fine looking guy laughing off at his friend’s jokes as he stood with a record in his hands. His eyes sparkled as he laughed and the dark checkered shirt on his fair skin, only made him stand out of the lot. Ria couldn’t take her eyes off from what she just saw. His smile was like a breath of fresh air, which beamed innocence, yet full of charm. As she drifted away staring at him, she wondered, “Who is this guy? How come I haven’t seen him all these days?” During the lab sessions, she did not be her usual self. Her mind was filled with images of him and and his smile. She could neither get over her sight of the charming guy nor concentrate on the lab work.

She came to know that he was also a first year student from Electronics department. Ever since, each time she passed through that building, she hoped to get a glimpse of him. Days passed, semesters passed, but she never dared to approach him. She noticed him throwing a glance at her once in a while and each time she saw him looking at her, her heart skipped a beat. Just like every other college mate, they became Facebook friends, but Ria never dared to ping him.

As time flew by, Ria enjoyed glimpses of her charming guy every now and then, but made sure it didn’t disturb her to much extent. Each time she stared at him, “Please come into my life at some point, when I’m in my happy place, with nothing much to think about, but you”, she whole heatedly wished. Ria knew her priorities and by the time she reached her final year, she shifted her focus on future plans and employment.

Two years passed since graduation. Ria is now a Software Engineer in one of the nation’s top IT firms and is leading a busy life. She completed her training and is currently posted in Bangalore. After passing the hectic training period with flying colors, Ria is now having the time for her life! She loves her job, is completely joyful, devoid of any sorts of stress and is savoring every bit of her independence.

One Friday, Ria was travelling home from work and just like everyday, she started browsing her social media feed. She noticed she had a Facebook message notification staring at her. She went ahead to open it, and what she saw was something she never expected at that moment!

A ‘Hi’ from her charming guy!! “Wow! After all these years?!! He knows me?! He remembers me?!!” she cried out of elation. That message made her day. Her joy knew no bounds and she could feel her heartbeat racing. After she finished cherishing her ‘magical’ message moment, she replied back. The next thing she knew, she was engrossed in a conversation, so much that they exchanged numbers and continued chatting until midnight.

The next weeks were the most cherished for Ria. Endless waits for a beep on the phone, constant texting and blushing became a part of her daily routine. Then one day all of sudden, she receives a text.

Ria, I’ve been waiting to tell you this for years. I have a serious crush on you since college, but I couldn’t approach you back then for various reasons. I will be in Bangalore next week for a conference, would you like to meet sometime? :)”

Law of Attraction Takeaway–  Focus intensely on your affirmations in the present and let go. Do not think about it too much, as too much focus leads to confusion and raises unwanted doubts, which negates the affirmation. Releasing implies your complete trust that universe has taken over your affirmation and you will expect the results when you most need it!

Make a wholehearted affirmation and release it to the universe. This confirms your complete trust and belief in the Law of Attraction. Because greater the belief and trust, better the results!

  1. Rightly said, Srujana, make a wish believing it’ll happen and then move on. Leave the details for the Cosmic Intelligence. The problem begins when you hold it and try to make it happen yourself. It shows your doubt and results in failure.

    1. Exactly! Holding on results in thinking too much and overthinking definitely ruins everything. Law of Attraction is often hard to practice for overthinking minds 🙂 Thank you Ravish for your valuable thoughts! 🙂

    That was very well put. Reminded me of my college days and the best thing was her wanting him to be in her life when she’s in a happy place. Totally loved it.

  3. Very well done. Crushes not acted on can be an infernal mind bomb. At least asking in the first place would give closure one way or another! Still, if it’s meant to be then perhaps it does….that said it’s easier to find out before the opportunity passes in the first place!

    Overthinking is our bane lol

      1. It does unless it was a real valid conscious decision not to. If it was avoiding through not being mindful of why then I feel that is where damage starts. As for overthinking…umm…me and publishing lol
