Life is stranger than fiction. A fiction has to be convincing, life is under no such obligation. The greatest thing to me in the world are cynics amd skeptics, trust me, we are glad when we are proven wrong. We concern you and ourselves with the evils and the uglies to further glorify the importance of good.
Life is full of wonders, adventures and unchecked happiness having hope and faith is not something which is hopelessly romantic or foolish, it is rather a different perspective. A perspective that we all breed deep inside us ;even though we try to hide it in gloom, stress and disbelief. We often forget that our race and time is just more than an era of competition, insecurities, cruelty and greed it has even been the one of compassion, sacrifice , courage and inspiration irrespective of age, origin or circumstances.
You get better when you don’t even realize you are getting better. It is only when you sit on a bench and stare into distance to trace back your life you become aware that you have grown, progressed and been someone that you would have liked to be.
We’d be better off if we spent our time and resources to make ourselves of even more use than we already are. We’d be brave if we spent your life in making or taking someone else a step closer to their ambitions instead of pondering and fretting over things we’re powerless to control. Improve a few lives even if it must be in the simplest of ways.
As Elie Wiesel once said- The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.
Indifference is one of the most dangerous things in the world it makes you blind to the good, kind and the brave. It no longer matters that someone snatched your opportunity, rights, and chance to accomplish, simply because you choose to do nothing about it. You allow yourself to crumble into a nothing, in a vast world which alreday challenges you to insignificance. You refuse the challenge, you give up without trying , you fail to act even if it must be like a coward.
We all ought to have a ikinagi. A purpose for which we wake up every morning. Be it love, family or ambition.The amazing thing about life is sometimes when you fail to get what you desire you might be actually dodging a bullet.
Stop treating life akin to a loan, a liabilty you must repay by the burden of EMI is a systematic matter. Treat it like a author who writes a book ;apart from a few conventional rules there is nothing that binds you. You are a creator of your own story, and the tale is such that the world will be glad to know.
Stop existing start living. The world is not falling apart. It can’t until people like you and me exist, who believe that is our job to be good, who try to make a difference, who choose to act bravely in the face of fear and speak our heart and mind even if our opinion bothers others and does not necessarily attempt to be idealized.
Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations and no road can be more difficult than the life and the world itself.
