Connecting Dots of One’s Life

Life is a series of dots that we hop or connect during our stay in this world. Each dot represents a momentary feeling that makes us go to the extremes in the emotional quotient. At the same time, some are a balanced emotional diet to live with.

It’s been a series of dot trips I have had over the past few years, and each represented a significant milestone of some sort.

Not sure how, but somehow I have left a particular dot with some confidence that this dot helped me complete the picture one day. I am no harbinger to pinpoint exactly how or what significance each drop holds at the moment; bluntly confident enough to say it will work for sure.

I quote this line and sometimes did use previously – “The world we live in is cynical” if not, at least the events that occur make us believe it to be cynical.”

Some part of it is from the movie ‘Jerry Maguire’, and the rest is based on my experience. Our confidence, beliefs, choices, and opportunities we make out of things that life dishes out each day determine the level of cynicism we end up living with.

I ask myself why I chose this particular field. And to be honest, I am not confident in saying this is where I will be in ‘X’ number of years. But the inner fire ignites and gives me a feeling; I will reach that point in life, however unclear it seems at the moment.

How do I identify that particular dot in my life, if I ever reach it in the future? Guess it is all related to my present and, to an extent, my past life. I cannot change my past but can always look at my presence differently and move on with it.

It isn’t a crime to get stuck with a particular dot, but failing to attempt to move to get to the next dot is a crime. Well, that’s how I choose to look at it.

Learning from my past, all I can say – There will be the feeling of being on top of the world associated with when I reach that dot. That particular day, I can visualize and even say eloquently about the different dots of my life and how relevant it has been to get to that feeling. Till then, I say to myself – “Keep on hopping from one dot to another; you never know when you hit that feel-good factor button inside us.” Ultimately it’s all about hitting the feel-good factors on more occasions at our dot stops.

P.S – I do not know to define the ‘feel-good factor.’ So it is better left to one’s interpretation.
