Don’t just exist, LIVE!!
Such an overused line this is these days…jo dekho yahi gyaan deta hai..! Live each day like its your last, live life to the fullest, dance your way through life! Boss, easier said than done! People who follow this are mostly the one’s who always have had their way with things. Mostly.
When Geet in Jab We Met said ‘mere toh yahi maan na hai, ki hum life mein jo bhi sacchi mein chahte hai na, actual mein, humare saath wahi hota hai’ i instantly agreed with her. Blame Kareena for being so convincing.
I am contradicting myself already, ain’t i? Let me explain. Its not easy to be happy and accept life the way it is and go on about it merrily. But no one, i repeat no one, can stop us from achieving what we want. Our heartiest desires do come true. Its all about how badly do we want it. It might take time for some to achieve it but if you want it, dil se, there is no way you can’t have it. Because if we want it from all our heart, we won’t just sit, pray and wait till our prayers are answered. We will work towards achieving it. Similarly, if we want to be happy, from heart, no one and nothing can stop us.
Those who wish to sing, always find a song – Swedish Proverb. It summarizes the essence of this post. Ever thought about how desperately we study just the day before our exams?! Like our life depends on it, na? Each minute is suddenly so precious. Because it’s on that day that the we feel the full blow of our desire to pass and most of us get through. Because we want it badly and work towards it, so earnestly that we get through. That’s the intensity with which we must desire to actually achieve what we desire. Almost like we might die if we won’t achieve it. Then there is no stopping! But most of us, including me, wait for our tail to set on fire only then do we go in search of water. Then the search is with such fierce desire that there is no way we won’t get water. The moral from the example is pretty much clear, we need to desire adamantly. Unfortunately its not until our desire is on the verge of falling in death grave that we realise its intensity. So dream, dream to be big…desire to achieve that dream! Many say that one should be practical, even while dreaming. That it’s foolish to dream something out of our reach. I contradict. Dreams are wishes our heart makes. And to be practical in dreaming is foolishness. Dream big, desire bigger…work towards it! You would be surprised to know how much you can achieve.
If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business, because we’d be too cynical. Well that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down – Annie Dillard
