When I came into this world I knew nothing of my own self.
I did not choose my gender or color or parents or name.
As I grew I began to know ME as an identity, to know my wishes, my dreams, my aims & so the journey began.
As a kid I was dying to score better marks & gave all my time to tuition teachers. I forgot, to play in the sun, to make castles of mud, to stroll on the outside lane, to…
As I grew up, I was dying to make something of my career. I devoted all my time to studies.
I forgot to attend my cousin’s birthday, to chat with my friends, to walk with the wind, to…
When I went to college, I was dying to get a job, yeah the best one. I forgot to celebrate every little joy present in my world, to freak with my friends, to spend time in the college canteen, to…
Today that I think I’ve made my existence, I am dying to get a bigger job, a better life, a beautiful future. I look back to find the remains of the days past by, all shallow. Where are those beautiful moments which I could have lived with my loved ones in the gone years.Now I realize that while I was dying to attain my goals I forgot so many things. I forgot to laugh, to love, to cry, to sing, to dance & so on. I just forgot to live. While I ran blindly to touch my tomorrow, I forgot to live my today.
Yeah life continually gives us more gifts then what we can fathom, it’s only our perception that matters. We should live our today & feel every moment of it. It doesn’t mean that one should stop planning for the future or one should stop setting their goals. It only means that we should learn to relish every moment. Today is our gift that’s why it’s called present.
And now that I’ve realized this folly of mine I’ve promised myself that I will
Live everyday, love more, laugh often.
