This line, could summarize everything that’s on my mind right now. This is all I wanted to say and I would have left it there, but well, it won’t make sense because there is always a need to satisfy the “why?”
All of us have a story, a sad story, a sob story. You broke up, you are broke, or it is broken breath or someone broke free of their body. Anyone and everyone you ask will never say they are content. No one will ever say they are what they want to be or they have everything they’ve ever wished for.
Everyone has made sacrifices, everyone has made amends in their plans because life never gives you what you wanted. You have to steal it from life and it isn’t easy. Eventually, you give up and lose to life. Our insides are broken, but guess what? We still work.
We keep moving on, the lights inside are out. There’s no more motivation in life. We lost out on the special someone, we lost out on our dreams, we lost out on someone close to us, we lost out on everything we ever wished to have. But guess what, when you lost it all, you earned so much more. You lost someone and you got someone. The new person will never be your someone, they will never replace them but they have a place of their own.
You lost your girl probably and got a brother-for-life. You probably lost your dream but you got the experience you need to start over, this time you have a headstart
We might lose our edge or our motivation but we can still serve our purpose. Everything will repair with time. Everything you’ve lost will be given to you anew. It’s not the light that keeps you going, it’s the sound of the pennies that make you work, it’s the heartbeat that makes you move forward.
The light might be broken but the vending machine still works.
The insides might be broken but the heart still works.
Have you ever walked in a room and then you forgot why you went there in the first place?
It is difficult to cope up with yourself sometimes. You wish something from life and pursue something else. You are out to be a musician and you spend nights completing college assignments. You have set out to be a photographer and you are reading a blog here, or spending your time on social media. Is it really that difficult to put your head down and work?
Well, it is never wrong to have a backup plan, in case your dreams don’t work out fine for you. Completing assignments is okay, but to be honest, your dreams, they won’t work out and you’ll have to settle down with your “backup plan” as your primary life purpose because you are never giving it all to your goal. You are just loitering around it, scared to get to the unknown, afraid of falling down, and afeared of starting all over again.
Dreams just don’t come true if you don’t put in all of it. Risk it. Push yourself to the limit. Give it all in. Forget everything else and work on yourself. Work towards what you need and forget about what you want. Still, if you don’t get what you need, then there’s nothing wrong with it.
It is too easy to be lost in the moment. It is too easy to think that you are never going to make it or you are not even close to where you want to be. When you set out to what you want to be, it is going to take decades and not minutes. It takes years to get somewhere and be someone significant, someone of value to the people. You want to have something, but there’s no way you can forget about the rest while pursuing the thing you want.
You want to have a big business. You cannot make it big all by yourself. You need people to help you on your way up. You need to invest in property, in assets, and in liabilities to get that little extra. You’ll have to spend your money on things besides your business to get your business going. A car will run on fuel, but it needs engine oil, brake oil, coolant, water, maintenance, servicing to get you to your destination.
Everyone wants to get married and settle down for good at some point in their lives. But you need to have a house, a job, a car and money to get a well-settled life. It’s not just the girl or the guy but everything else too that makes a married life successful.
Have you ever walked in a room and then you forgot why you went there in the first place? It is too easy to get lost in materialistic gains and forget what you set out for. Have an eye for what you want to be and everything else will fall in place. Being afraid isn’t exactly going to get you somewhere. The fear of height isn’t going to let you enjoy the view from the top of the mountain and you won’t make atop in the first try.
It is never too late to start.
It is never too late to start all over again.
Just remember incy-wincy-spider, and climb up that spout.
Can you meet me? No, I’m busy.
Why don’t you reply to texts? I was busy.
You aren’t taking my calls these days, is everything okay? Nothing, I’m just keeping busy.
There are a lot of people drifting away from each one of us every year just because they are busy. Now is someone really so busy that they can’t even take calls? I’m busy too, most of the day and I don’t get time to read books, watch TV or play games, but I take calls. I reply to texts too. Well, not always and not immediately but yes, eventually.
If I don’t reply within the next 15 minutes from the time you texted, just know that I’m sick and I cannot look at my cell phone screen because my eyes burn of prolonged exposure to bright light. That’s it. There’s no other reason why I won’t take a call or won’t reply to a text during the day.
People aren’t exactly busy. Let’s face it. We have all been busy for someone at some point in our life. And these lines run in your mind,
“Who’s calling? Him? Uh… I’ll call him back later. The game has almost loaded.”
We have been busy to someone, and free to someone else. You walk away from the keyboard when you get that special call, the call you have been waiting for the entire day and then you don’t want to look away from the loading screen for someone else. No one is busy and no one is free.
People make time for important things and no one wants to waste a second on events that sound vain. People and place from where you won’t get any returns. It’s not about being busy all day long or being free because you have nothing to do. In this wire connected world, we are socially selective. We are available to someone and busy for someone else.
No one is busy, You are just not a priority.
On one day in their entire life, everyone is a King. Nothing goes wrong on that day. You get the train even though you were late, you get a promotion, you are not late for your date, and you get back home to find leftover cake in the refrigerator, the King of little things.
But then there are days where nothing goes right, even though it was meant to be that way, it was planned to go right. You want to buy a second-hand car, you look forward to your payday so that you can finally get it. Your cheques, which have never been late in your 5 years at the job is delayed by a week and the seller won’t wait. You lose the car. You lose the battle that was meant to be won.
Then we think about what went wrong, why am I cursed?
The problem here is that we try too much. A bit too much to understand that we are a mere speck dust in the wide vast universe. It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try, it just means there’s little we could do. There are no coincidences, there are no blind miracles or unexpected tragedies, it’s all going to come in someday, and it does.
All we can do is try and resign; resign to our fate. There are going to be uphills and there are going to be downfalls, all we need to do, is fasten the belt and sit tight on the rollercoaster.
