All humans or most of us, get excited thinking of the unknown or the future, we concentrate more on the 'what's if's' than the 'what is' in life.
We don't realise that while we're procrastinating…worrying or day dreaming of what could be or what will be, we are losing out on the present which is life happening around us.
Realisation dawns upon us when we feel how time has flown by!
Still it doesn't mean one doesn't need to feel that you have wasted your life away.
No person has given us a rule book that has the correct definition of how to live your own life. As long as you're not hurting or harming anyone you are capable of choosing what you want to do with your own life!
I've come across people who feel they need to do things because they feel that they have time and they are not making the most of their lives.
Why do we feel guilty about living our lives the way we want to?
I agree there are many many people who don't have the option to do so because of some monetary or other situations.
BUT the "lucky" ones as admired and envied by the ones who aren't, need not feel guilty about living their lives on their own terms.
Life is all about being happy and cherishing every bit of life. No one knows what's to happen even a few minutes or hours from now.
I don't want to talk about sad things but we must acknowledge the fact that people are dropping dead like flies. There is NO age factor that is safe to predict one's life span!
People keep concentrating on the AGE factor BUT they don't realise that age and time are just numbers. We humans have just tried to make sense of this unknown entity around us. I don't think animals have a sense of age or time. They just live each day as it comes, and that's how one should be.
I try my best to do so… and I try to preach the same!
No one can be happy and have a LORD Rama alike smile plastered on their faces -all the time, but you can take inspiration from that and try to turn the frown upside and smile at your worries.
I always believe smaller issues in life are better than other problems coming our way!
Our sorrows make us realise the importance of happiness in our lives.
Anyhow, live life the way YOU want and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Believe what your gut tells you! The Mind and heart can play tricks BUT the gut isn't wrong atleast 98% of the time.
Seize the day and enjoy life as it comes. Live in the moment! Don't try to catch the waves of life… just enjoy the feel of them on you!
