Quote Challenge: Day 3 Of 3

Image Source

Parul has nominated me for the 3-Day Quote Challenge and here is my third and final quote as part of this challenge.

This quote resonates in my ear every single day. Especially over the past few months where I have been hearing wonderful things about me, that I myself did not know about. You know, at times I feel like Poonam Pandey. Yes, our very own bikini bombshell. Not because I show case my "assets", but because she never stops being in the news. Well, maybe Smriti Irani would have been a better comparison. Anyway, I digress. What I'm saying is that people are making up so many stories behind my back that there must be a series of my biographies written until now. Every day it is a new story, making me seem like Mogambo and Gabbar. Does it upset me? No, not at all. Didn't these movies become big hits only because of these characters? I love it. And because these characters are fictional. Infact it makes me feel very nice that I am omnipresent in the minds of so many people, even when they have negative space in my mind. It is nice to hear stories from someone else for a change after writing fiction all these years. And you will not believe the creativity of some people. Same story, different versions. Different stories, same characters. Wow, I just want to stand up and applaud them.

I get thrilled when people talk behind my back. Mainly because I form a picture in my mind of farting on their faces while they are talking about me. I have been a rebel ever since I can remember and have always followed the right path. The path that I think is right, I mean. Living life in the open and talking honestly about things is what I believe in. Two faced people and multicolored chameleons are not the ones I want to mingle with. Every time someone talks behind my back, I move one step ahead in life. Today, I have marched so ahead in life that the line of people talking behind my back look like a dot to me. I have risen so high and am so happy, that these people are the last things that would bother me. It is funny right, that I have moved so ahead in life but the ones who talk behind are still stuck in the same place where they used to be. Jobless, with zero accomplishments and only a phone, computer or laptop for company, to stalk others and spread gossip. What a wonderful life that must be!

People talk behind your back only because you are ahead of them in every step of life. I'm busy living a wonderful life, handling a brilliant job, enjoying my passion of writing, cooking, gardening and painting, setting up a house with the man I love and loving the man with all that I have, to be bothered about such petty things. People who have nothing else to do, do the only thing that they are capable of; talk.

So let people talk behind your back. You march ahead with head held high. They are in the perfect position to kiss your ass anyway.

I have immensely enjoyed taking up this challenge. Although I couldn't post this yesterday, there was no way that I would leave the challenge half way. I have shared three of my favorite quotes here. But it is only the tip of the iceberg. Maybe someday I will share my actual collection too. And it definitely shall take more than three posts. Thank you Parul for nominating me for this wonderful challenge. I have loved every bit of it.

On the final day, I nominate the following versatile bloggers to take up this challenge: Shantala, Keirthana and Ankita.

This is what the 3-Day Quote Challenge is all about.

1. Post one of your favorite quotes (different quote on each day) on three consecutive days. The quote can be from your favorite book, author, or your own.
2. Nominate 3 bloggers to challenge them.
3. Thank the blogger, who nominated you.

    1. Thank you Rashmi. Looking forward to read your quote collection.

  2. Well, talking behind someone's back is not that bad... unless, ofcourse, you are just sharing the facts!! Cooking up stories is ridiculous. You must share those stories as well :)

  3. that's the spirit :D ROFL at the farting on the face sentence!!! that's quite a picturization :P

  4. Oh! I so agree with this quote. Like they say, strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people!

  5. Lovely and a very meaningful quote!
    Thank you dear Soumya for tagging me :)

  6. Who has the time to care for those petty people anyway? I always love your quotes Leo, do make a complete collection and maybe a series of posts would do justice to them. Thanks for tagging me, am working on it already :)
