While I started writing this topic, in back Ananda Shankar is playing his Missing you. Do I miss myself too? when in the dark night I feel I am empty inside, when the moon gets a little tired for being there so long, the snow stops dripping... I close my eyes and I see one young guy just passed his teen, looking past the corridor of his University residence. The spring breeze is giving a clue for the harsh winter, somewhere near some tiny animals are preparing themselves for the dawn, he is seeing the sky. The dark velvet over the skyline, few stars blinking with dead light, he is not very concerned nor so relaxed about his future. Things still to him, as good as it gets. Dreams got faded with the course of time and I am now sitting here after long 10 years thinking of giving some advice to this young me: No way you could get back these moments, save them. No way you could be so healthy, use it - go for jogging, play football, tennis, basketball - whatever gets you. Just don't sit back and let the time slips away. You really don't want to see yourself with some more extra pounds and some grey hair after few years. Studying is always good; no doubt, but realizing life and realizing that life is not only about education or revolves around success would give you more freedom to pursue your dream. Your dreams are there to shape you up as a person - not your education. I certainly am making this thing so straighten up but to me it's true. And again dream irrationally high, no one will put tax on your dreams. So spend time dreaming about where you really want to see yourself down in the road after 5 yrs, after 10 years, after 20 yrs. Make the plan and no way, no way at all, let other shape it up for you. Take the decisions which feel ok to you (I am glad I have taken some which failed in the middle, but can say my 30s self - I took the chance). Do not fear to handle any situation in your way or do not fear to be in conflict for which you feel you should stand. Your stance, your opinions, your decisions will make you the person you want to be. Enjoy the life, relax - you are not alone.
A little heads up
The Blogorama is collection of my daily blog. Whereas category "Things made my life awesome" talks about my past wonderful experiences in an ascending order, "Now in my mind" says the issues I like my opinion on. "Life, in making" is recently started daily log (not so daily!), "Meditation" is something I come back so often, thought that would interest YOU too. Well, that sums it up (almost).
A constant dreamer, believe this is not the end of the world and try to make changes in my own life constantly. Life sometimes went hard and strict-my life's choices would determine whether I have taken them as lessons or punishment.
If you think someone else is the problem and is not letting you do certain things, that implies you perceive yourself a victim. Being victim is letting the person win. If you really want to make a statement: Ignore him.
