It’s not about topping exams
It’s not about running races
It’s not about proving a point
It’s not about trying to get yourself understood
Life is only about living it to the fullest.
Some people believe that, We are eternal beings and our Human Life is merely a transitional period where we have to go through emotions and physical hardships till the time we die and pass on to the “other world”
So, in this supposedly shortest period of our existence in Human form, why are we running behind everything that might not matter in the least bit?
Is it because we are being brought up that way- taught to run behind everything?
Or is it because, it’s the basic instinct of the human race- to strive to be better than your peers?
Whatever the reason maybe,
What are we running for?
Why are we working ourselves to death for?
People might answer- success in career, relationship goals.
Two broad categories of the many reasons each of us may have.
But are these really worth all the time and energy we spend?
We don’t think about the purpose of it all unless we are forced to.
Not our fault. We have civilised that way.
In the end, is money, status or your love life going to rate your existence in this world?
No- in the end, it is always going to be your happiness, your satisfaction that will matter.
Regret will be the biggest mistake you can do in life. Yes, Failures will not even come in the list of your “Life Mistakes”.
Never regret anything that happened in the past. They are all tools to sculpt you become a better person. If you can see yourself growing from your mistakes, the bad that happened doesn’t even come under the “Bad” category anymore. It was for the greater good of yourself maturing in ways that you did not realise at that point in your life.
Yes, it is absolutely normal to think that looking at things that way is easier said than done. But trust me, it’s easier done than said.
Making one believe that clouds will drift away to shine a brighter light is tougher than believing it yourself.
Faith is the key to everything. Believe that you will become the better person you should be and you will.
Time is an essential factor in all this. Give everything the time it deserves. Be it moving away from a bad experience or changing your belief, everything requires time. Some may need it more than the other. But always give yourself the time you require.
Then there’s your mind! The hardest part of it all. Convincing your mind to believe in yourself and to let you take the chances that you have to, will be the challenge of your lifetime. Your heart will know what you want but your mind… It is calculative of all the risks you might encounter, have a statistical data of the percentage of failure of your mission and it will also convince you to stay in the safe zone. But staying in the safe zone is not meant for us. We are meant to conquer ourselves and through that, the universe.
Once you take control of your mind, you will end up doing things that you never thought you were capable of!
The last element you will need is ‘Patience’
The result of your actions might not be coming through e-mails or text messages. So, please stop expecting that. People these days are in such a hurry that they expect drastic results with one day of change in their life. That is never ever going to happen.
You are not going to become the happiest and most satisfied person in the world overnight.
Be kind, smile more, help those who are in need, stay truthful to your heart, avoid negativity in your life and above anything else, love yourself. Love yourself unconditionally and irrevocably.
You will receive the fruits of these daily actions only at times of hardships in your life. The results will be so amazing that you will cross through the storm as if it were nothing but a breeze! You might not even realise it because these simple, positive changes in your life will change the way you look at life altogether.
Everyday is a new page. Write your story the way you want it to progress. Our life is a book that only we get to write and read. Make it as good and interesting as it can be for you! It may not be easy all the time. But remember, every writer comes across mind blocks. Beyond that is the greatest story you’ll ever come across. Overcoming it is what requires the strength we already possess.
I am a person trying to make my story worthwhile. Let luck be with us! 🙂
