A friend: What if I died tomorrow, will I go to heaven?
Me: Look up!! Just see how the sky is turning blue losing its drabness and monotony.
A friend: what does this even mean?
Me: It means you’re not dead so stop acting like one! Just like the sky, you are a beauty and a bringer of happiness and smiles. You were placed here to live not to just exist. So don’t be afraid to take the extra mile and stop assuming for the worst.
I have hurt and I have been hurt. I have loved with all my heart and I have been loved. I have lost and I have been lost. I have laughed…I have cried…I have yelled…I have thrown things…I have made the most of each moment and I have wasted time…I have thrown myself into things that I was not ready for and I have waited too long to jump on the train of opportunity. But all in all…I have learned and still learning.
There are days when I feel impatient with the way my life is going and I feel angry or frustrated. Yes my career is not going the way I planned and my job is not satisfying, yes I have financial problems, and yes caring for others can be tiring sometimes and I can’t find time for myself. I need to learn how to be patient. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to do nothing: to wait for events to unfold in their own time. I need to learn to relax and stop trying to force things to happen. I can’t control everything in my life, and it is this is the right time to stop trying. I don’t have to achieve all my goals in one day or even one month.
Despite the disappointments of our complex lives, we should begin to learn how to live. I will continue to strive for progress and be satisfied to be an imperfect human. Each day is a new start for me and each moment is a new beginning.
