Viewer’s envy, Owner’s pride

IMG_5705

I took this shot while driving in the bus to Fort Williams in Scotland.ย I am not a person who is envious of anything of others. No point in it. But this view stumped me for a few seconds. I really wished I could live in a place like that, but then I keep thinking of that , of a lot of places. But this place has all of my favorites: Water front, green plains, view of the mountains and calm and serene environment. I don’t need such a big house. I always prefer small and compact homesย where we are not lost to each other (and not giving the other, enough space to go hide in case I annoy them too much ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). So that is the one thing I would want to change, but the rest I will take it as is. I know this is something out of my reach now, but I can always dream can’t I ? Who knows someday I might be able to make that dream come true too ! What about you, any specific preferences ?

I just want to be a little bit

taller. I am an average ‘5 ft 6 in’ Indian woman. And I am quite tall enough actually, compared to the standards around my place. But still, even when I was very young I always wanted to grow till 6 ft. Why? I have no clue. May be I thought that would boost my ever low confidence when I actually can look down on people ๐Ÿ˜‰ Must have been some crazy adolescent thought but there it was. And I never got away from that wish. Reason or no reason.

In fact there was a time when I was the tallest among my siblings in my family. And when I saw my sister’s growth I panicked. And I used to make her sit down and push her shoulders down so that she wouldn’t grow taller than me ๐Ÿ˜€ , an action she quotes even now to use it against me saying that was the only reason she is still in 5 ft 4 in. (rolls eyes) whatever!!. And I was very sure that my brother was going to be the shortest one and I would get to bully him if he ever was mean to me. But with boys, you never know when they grow up. God! I think he grew up overnight and became the tallest in the family at around ‘6ft 1 in’ and also put on a lot of weight (how can they become like a Hulk in a short span of time, I wonder) Damn!!! Now he acts like he is the biggest and meanest of all ๐Ÿ˜‰ (and he at-times is)

If there is one thing that I could physically change in me it would be, to be a little bit more taller. I am OK with being a little fat (I actually call them big bones!!!) and also with all other physical imperfections I have. But a little bit taller , yeah, I would like that. And no, I don’t want to wear heels (one of my friend’s suggestions) because I cannot walk even two steps in them without falling and with my history of flat feet and injuries, so many mishaps are ready to be happen. So God!, if I do get a next chance, can I be a little bit taller, like 6 ft , pretty please ๐Ÿ˜€
