It was not the same day compared with others recently, as I reflected upon few things. Death ends a life, but it does not end a relationship, which struggles on in the survivor’s mind towards some resolution, which it may never find… I read these lines in a book…
Things have changed to an extent that Karma has started inspiring certain people. I am a great believer of the fact that, one has its own destiny and Karma is truly what I believe in.
Situations encountered over past few months where in I am not allowing the so-called other’s to enter and at times when ever opportunity presents, I panicked and I fled. Because in almost liking someone else I felt disloyal to the only one so far I ever loved.
But with time, I did realize, how much longer could I live this way, forever on my guard lest human feelings catch me unaware?
Freud-himself- once said that for the little things in life we should, of course, react according to our reason.
But for really big decisions, we should heed what our unconscious tells us.
Well not every time.
With time, I have tried many things so far, just to confront as to who I am.
I was wondering, what life would have been if certain things didn’t change? All I say, even I would have been alive.
At times, I am agog with the way things are in life. Also, I feel lonely at times, but there is something that keeps me going.
Maybe it is some sort of inspiration from few friends. And how they overcame the asperity thrown to them. Or it might be lyrics of my favourite songs and or certain pod casts that I have kept for myself when I get bugged. Books help a lot, movies too and trust me talking to people also does. There are many sources for inspiration.
But I like to challenge myself to overcome on my own fighting it out within.
At times, its ambulatory, eventually things do pick up very quickly.
In Pursuit of self-found happiness, I ensure I am not bedizened with false optimism.
Early Morning, or late in the night, I was always fascinated with the thought of everyone being a survivor in this world. Somehow, people survive. Whether we like it or hate it, they just survive.
With some maxims (not the one’s I collect) people tend to move irrespective of the direction.
I might be young, callow in most things, but I am getting an opportunity in life to cross off many things.
Past one year, life has made me to float with confidence and it has also made me come down. It’s just that, my understanding to these subtle changes has become microscopic through my own eyes and inner voice.
These words hit me most of the time…I mean inspire…
Risin’ up, back on the street Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive
Face to face, out in the heat Hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry
They stack the odds ’til we take to the street
For we kill with the skill to survive
Risin’ up, straight to the top Have the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive
I agree the rival is within me and no one else. External rivals are so superficial. That’s just to spice up this life game.
The below video is of course that of my idol, Rocky Balboa and how challenges keep coming at him when in fact he is enjoying his life. Champions are tested all the time, in that sense, I wouldn’t mind being tested at all rather than resting on my laurels.
