Present a gift or curse?
How many people wake up every morning? Aimlessly, wondering what do they truly want from their life? Well talking about people would be a little paranoiac because among them I am the one living creature who really doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life.
I have a confused persona one moment I want to learn French while another playing guitar! I have the most veering mind anyone could ever deal with! Well, the most confused personas are the one who really just don’t wake up aimlessly and sip their cup of coffee. They ponder, over analyze and work on their dreams.
Our decision reflects us who we are in the outer world. Be it a good decision or really a bad one; who is gonna give a shit about it?! Well, we do.
Always so obsessed about what society expects us to be, we gradually forget who we really are. I wonder why people always want us to forget our past and move on. As if nothing happens to the part of suffering we have been through! Some memories are burn while some are bliss. At this age, I rarely recall my childhood days or primary school friends. Human memory is weak, forgetful. And so we are forgetting our real charms.
What it feels like to be free like a bird!? Souring in open sky; even a bird has to be through rough damn weather during migration. That is how human life is. Endlessly running! We are never good at appreciating what we have at present but unsatisfied with the luxury we don’t possess. That’s what makes us humans a futurist!
We are so obsessed by our future plans and terrified by our past; that somewhere in the middle of nowhere we forget we have today. I feel the time is running slow, while you are the one running fast. Missing your life, your relations; barely alive yet not living. Why? Just because you hope your future will be peaceful? I don’t think so; I believe in today because it helps me to keep on going whatever the future beheld for me. You should definitely hear this piece of music “Today is the day” by Ellen DeGeneres.
“You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”
― John Green,
I don’t know what tomorrow may bring for you, but I am sure you can live today. Make this very day count. Make this year count.
Today is the only day.
