“In this journey we are on, there will always be moments of peaks and troughs, a little loneliness and a little audience, a little too less and a little too much.” -Nitin Gupta, Journey
Dive deep. Fly high. Dream big. Express yourself. Laugh out loud. Bake a cake. Share moments. Make memories. Believe in yourself. Escape the ordinary. And, above all, LIVE WITH LOVE. Just do it! Wait, was it too much? Is it Robin-Sharma-phobia? Whatever! Bring it on, I say. Let’s Just do it! YOLO *Determined look*
I still remember those good old days when I was a toddler, trying hard to stay in my dad’s arms and how he struggled to send me to preschool. Okay, don’t laugh! Because I am not the only one. Even you must have been a preschool-resistant child in your toddler age. That was our first encounter with the world outside. Welcome on board. Let’s screw you!! 😉 *Reminds me of 3 Idiots ragging scene*
Well, we live in a world where dreaming of a happy life is too overrated. Just live. And, I say, Live with love.
To quote Maya Angelou –
“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Over the years, I have realized the most amazing thing in this world is to let people live your dream. How amazing it is to talk to someone about your dreams, inspiring someone and making them believe in you. You can win people by love, not by force. It’s something like this –
‘Try to take some grains of sand in your hand and clench your fist. Now clench it harder. What do you observe? The harder you try to keep those grains from slipping through your fingers, the faster it slips. It’s the same with people.’
Believe in the power of love for love can do what daggers cannot.
Let’s take a pledge this 2016. Let’s take chances, explore places, breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens. Let’s live, for a change. Let’s break the wheel of monotony.
