Time and Tide wait for none. It is true. Clock is ticking, seasons are changing with every second of our lives spent. Seconds become minutes, minutes become hours, hours to years and one day… poof! Life meets its end.
I see people striving hard, vying to land up in the roles they desire by abandoning the little pleasures of life. But since when did life proclaim to bestow only those who let go of the smallest of the small pleasures. May be the big picture of life is scary which calls in for our utmost determination and perseverance but giving up on the simple pleasures does not make it any easier. Life is all about ‘Little things.’
If only we could take a second to notice the scintillating beauty life tends to offer us we could muster up nothing less than true magic. No matter how scant things seem, they do matter. From telling your mom how great the lunch is, thanking the driver for dropping you safely, cracking a jest to make light of a situation, seeing the Sun rise, watching a movie, treating yourself, offering compliments to the chef for making our tummies happy with their splendor meal, riding a bicycle, hanging out with those childhood friends who remember us including our birthdays while we are still banging our heads to remember their faces et cetera. Let us embrace the gift of life we are blessed with. Being too caught up with the beautiful prospects of future only impedes us from living in the present. I say, let us be alive to each and every moment and justify the present. I’m sure the future will take care of itself.
Speaking of which, life is not only about personal things. It has got professional front to manage up too. Work hard, have an ambition, take small steps every day to paint yourself in a good picture worthy enough to land you where you aspire to see yourself down the road. Managing this hodgepodge of personal and professional life is what makes us the true master of this chariot of life we drive. But don’t get too carried away by the big picture that you forget about the every pixel that makes it whole. Because no matter how big the picture is, every pixel counts.
I take no position of a preacher. Just a little remainder to unlock the happiness we seek but too swamped with our work that we fetter ourselves from finding the key. Acknowledge the little things in life. Don’t let the pressure and struggle keep you from living. In this Game of Life, there are no second chances. So, live a life, leave a legacy but don’t just merely exist to be gone with the wind. Be alive to every breath you take, persevere but do not let the tribulations shackle you from little things that imbue our hearts with jubilation. Because none of us know when it’s going to be our last breath but while we still have time let’s make it count. To all the unlived life, here I come.
