Are we collecting and analyzing with a purpose? Do we have the guts to do a reality check and see if what we have collected is “meaningful” or “worth”? It can be anything. Memories, reality, dreams, wishes, someone special or a lucky bracelet, anything which makes you question it’s worth. How often have you had those nights where you doubted yourself and your abilities? I know I have.
Have you ever had that feeling when you are stuck somewhere between who you are, who you could be and who you want to be?
“What it is” is what is now! It is a period you live in with your existing state of affairs. It is this period which creates a picture in your head of how it is supposed to be or “What it should be”, because if this period had been better, you wouldn’t have thought of what should you do to make it the best. Focusing on the situation where you are stuck in between what it is and what it should be, you’ll learn that you cannot be loved by all. You can be the finest person in the world- understanding, caring, loving. But there will be people who’ll go against you. You have to understand that if you are the finest apple and someone you love and value the most doesn’t like apples, you have the choice of becoming an orange. If you chose to become an orange, you will be a second rated orange, but you can always be a finest apple because, that who you are and what you are known for. You’ll realize that if you choose to be an orange, there will be people who don’t like oranges too. This is a grim scenario of the ‘between’ situation, where a person deals with heart breaks, sabotage their own thoughts and emotions. Furthermore, you can spend your life trying to become the best orange which is impossible because you can shape your personality and not your nature, or you can seek again to be the finest apple.
The road between where you are and where you should be is just another lane in your life which will lead you to your destination. It is not permanent; it is just a phase, where you learn to handle the odds of any situation, struggle, bluff and risks. After a while you learn a subtle difference between holding a hand and getting chained with a soul, and you learn that love doesn’t mean learning from each other every time, and company doesn’t mean refuge, and you begin to learn that kisses aren’t any love contracts or a brand mark, and presents aren’t lifetime promises, and you being to accept your defeats and learn to confront them with your head held high, with the grace of an adult and not a grief of a child, you learn to build your own roads based on today because tomorrow doesn’t allow any guarantee. After a while you learn that too much sunshine can burn you. So plant your own garden and decorate your own soul and set your own example to the human race, instead of waiting for someone to get you flowers.
Note-to-self: Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity.
