To a certain extent we can plan our days, but we cannot plan our lives.
We can only imagine what we want our lives to be like, but we can never see the complete picture, because it doesn’t happen exactly the way we’ve imagined.
When we start planning our lives, things seem to be very easy but as we move on towards achieving it, we see the real problems associated with it.
We can just hope for the best, expect the worst or try any combination of mind control to make life be exactly what we want it to be.
We can make plans or change them or simply dodge them but this is nothing but a waste of time.
We should accept that change is the only constant in this world.
The best way to embrace change and live life to the fullest is:
- Let go of rigid expectations.
- Be open and upfront.
- Be adaptive towards any kind of situation.
- Don’t let stuff distract you.
- Live freely and give freely.
- Remember: You only live once!
- Keep dreaming
When things don’t go as planned, you might feel disappointment instead of surprise.
So, don’t plan your future too much because it is better to be surprised than to be disappointed.
So, you better plan to be surprised!
Recognize the beauty of your life and get the best out of it!
And always remember: Change is the only unchanging fact of life…
You might have heard this phrase at some or the other point of your life “Don’t be afraid to speak your mind”. Well, I’m sure nobody ever took the pain to give a thought on it! What does this means? What is the significance of this phrase?
Usually, people overhear these phrases of day to day life…thinking that it’s a part of their life…But is it really a part of your life? Have u ever practiced speaking your heart out?
And the answer is NO
We like to be in a crowd and never try to stand out of it…and in a bid to do that, we end up joining the group of stereotypes.
Even our constitution says that “We have the right to speak” then why do we feel shy in raising our voice against something wrong?
Let me share with u an incident that took place today, one of my classmates raised her voice against mass bunk as she wasn’t interested in bunking the classes for no reason. The moment she spoke up, everybody looked at her as if she’s a criminal who is giving a justification of a crime done by her in front of the judge. After listening to her views everybody started ignoring and commenting on her…
I’m just keeping an example in front of u at a very small scale…We come across such issues in the news everyday!
What I’m trying to convey is that you should never be afraid to raise your voice against the odds because if you will then your thoughts will become unheard.
This doesn’t only apply on these matters…but also when it comes to sharing your thoughts with others or to keep your point of view in front of them…Whether to a friend or a loved one…you should not be afraid to speak your heart as long as your intentions are right!
Keeping things in your heart instead of expressing it to others leads to “regrets”. This regret remains in your heart for a life time and pokes you every now and then…
If you have something to tell your loved ones…then don’t wait for the right time…just make the present time right!
An unsaid and unheard feeling becomes a burden when not expressed properly…
It is said that time and tide waits for none…so, hurry up as “YOU LIVE ONLY ONCE…”
