Dreams are funny things, aren’t they? One feels unbounded in the realms of dream as if they are invincible. Letting their imagination run to the Neverland, Wild and Free. Situations like these make people say often “Sky is the Limit”, but I say it is just the beginning.
Struggle an Explosion Box :-
When you talk about dreams, struggle follows. Struggle is like an explosion box all wrapped up and ready to gift with a beautiful bow on the top. When you receive it, you get all cheery and jittery from inside thinking about various possibilities of what’s hiding in it. And as soon as you open it KABOOM!!!, explosion right on your face.
Did you ever notice, the explosion that brings a shocking terror on your face is the same explosion that leaves behind a wide smile etched onto your visage?
In case of dream we often get so lost in our struggle that we forget about the end result. We forget about our wide smile, our nonchalant laugh and tears of joy. Don’t give up in the name of struggle, because nothing would make you happier than the end result.
I know easy to say, hard to accomplish. But it can be achieved. I trust you, to turn your can into will.
Existential Crisis :-
If you ask me, times are really tough on me right now, and not a moment goes by where I don’t question my existence. Do I have a dream, yes I do. Do I know how to approach it? Nope, not a clue. Am I going in the right direction? God really knows. Will I make it? I wish only if I knew.
I still am struggling. But I know one thing and that is, no matter how and no matter what, KEEP MOVING. I am not suggesting you have to go with the flow if you can make it happen otherwise, do it, but until then try to go with it.
Everyday I convince my heart to get up and fight and I insist you do too. Cause it is better if we are walking rather than waiting to hitch a ride on the abandoned highway, where nobody is in sight.
Closed Door: –
It is said that we often look so longingly at the closed door; we can’t really see the ones that are already open for us. And that is indeed true.
Maybe we keep looking at it because somewhere our heart still yearns for it to open again, that we would find our way in, and when we don’t we feel disheartened.
As much as I hate to say it, how we feel depends on us. And yes, it applies on me too. Because “Nobody is going to help you in carving your own destiny.”
Solace in Inspiration:-
I still remember what Jack Pearson said in “This Is Us”, “You got to own your choices. Choose them fully and don’t look back.”
Or what “Chris Gardner aka Will Smith” advised his Son in, The Pursuit Of Happyness, “Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they’re gonna tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.”
Or what Matthew Hussey said in one of his videos on YouTube channel, “If you put a small value on yourself, rest assured the world will not raise your price.”
Life is fair since it’s unfair to everyone. So if you think you are all alone, you aren’t, I m here to accompany you.
Don’t think I m depressed, I am not, I m just not happy. Doesn’t mean I don’t laugh here and there. I just see people around me doing something with their life or at least with a dream whereas my aspiration went adrift.
Some people say to me your future holds great things for you or at least they wish for it, maybe they say it to console me, or maybe they say it cause they don’t know what else to say. I got no idea how many of them actually mean it. And while writing this web log I realized, there isn’t any way to find out even.
I wanted to make this a motivational journal post, but I guess not every blog post needs to be motivational. Some should allow people to cry and whine.
Then do it while reading this, and when you are done reading it, make sure you are done with your whining episode too. Because right now, you need yourself more than you need others.
Try approaching the productive side, you don’t know what your dream is about, you are one lucky fella. You have abundant opportunities, to make things work for you. Various horizons to explore.
Life has funny way of working out just when you start to believe it never will.
Even the prominent Chinese Philosopher, Confucius, quoted “We all have two lives; the second begins when we realize we only have one.”
Therefore, I implore you to perceive, that you have got just one life with plentiful chances either you make one hell of a ride or you keep sweating and regretting.
My friend asked me to write a letter to my future self. I wish only if my future self could write to me, I have so many questions to ask. But I guess they will remain unanswered for a while.
This blog is dedicated to all those who are standing in my shoes right now, and those who aren’t I m happy for you folks, and if you know someone who is standing today where I am, do me a favor if you can’t encourage them to do better, the least you can do is not to discourage them.
They are really trying hard, even if it doesn’t look like it. The world hasn’t ended they know it too but sometimes not knowing what to do with your future feels like it. One kind word of yours can change their entire day.
