What Is Life?
What Is Life?
I Truly learned the answer to this Question during this LockDown! So here is what I learned :
Life is strange, it’s weird, imperfect, and definitely not what we thought it would be. Because if it would be exactly how we thought it would be, then that would be a movie. As children, we create this perfect illusion of how we want our life to be. I remember when I was a kid, I had planned how my life would be - after my 10th I would get into college have fun, study, party, live free. Finish college and head for a degree, again enjoy, study, party, graduate, and by the time I was 21, I would have a great job, at 25 own a house, have an amazing partner. Sounds perfect right? Just like any reel life. And now that I am around that age, I see my plans nowhere! Haha! But that is okay! I am just settling in with a job, and that’s not bad. But this also doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have guidelines to where you wanna be. It is not always rainbows and sunshine, there comes along storms and tornadoes, your life even feels like it’s completely disrupted. But it’s not. It is just a phase of living. And in that life, you have people too. Some come around in your happiest times, play their part and exit, some come in your lowest times, play their part, and leave. And there are some people that come and stay around the longest. And that is okay, accept that every individual in your life plays a part meant for them. Some teach you lessons that break you but build you stronger, and some are around supporting you, encouraging you to be a better version of yourself every day! So with a warm heart welcome everyone, those who stick around, as well as those who leave because their part in your life has ended. We wonder, what did we do to get such a life? We wonder if we are living correctly. There is no “way” of living life. Every way you choose to live is your way of living. Learn to be happy with the least and accept, be grateful for even being alive each day, living through life good or bad. We, humans, have this crazy habit of cribbing about the littlest things in life; it could be work-related, personal life, love life, or just life in general. Stop asking the questions of, what is life? Is this how I am living called life? The answer to all these questions is a simple YES! Be grateful for even having a life. At moments when you least expect you could be showered with unexpected moments, you cherish a lifetime. Look at life positively, live thinking about nothing but good thoughts. Wish good to all, especially to those who have done bad to you. Be kind in the littlest ways, especially to people who come across on your daily commute; be it your rickshaw or cab driver, office janitors, Service staff. Etc. Life is all about giving and accepting, being grateful for everything you have. Our life is too precious to let it just go, to bow down to certain harmful thoughts or diseases that want to disrupt our living. Life is much more than just earning and surviving, it is about Living, learning, experiencing. We surely encounter some temporary setbacks, that doesn’t mean it’s the end. It is just the end of a book, the new book is blank and about to begin. Be prepared as to how you want to write your LIFE. Don’t let small speed breakers break you down. Get Up and Live it through. But also, don’t forget to Pause for a moment and Breathe! Because life is just not about Living, But also Creating!
