We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us

-Joseph Campbell

People say that life is an amalgamation of good events and bad events where mostly, the bad events overshadow the good ones. The thing is, they do, but you can’t look at life from a perspective of ‘when will this get over’. You have the beautiful gift of being. No task is too big and no success is too small.

Nowadays, people quantify the meaning of life under 2 things-

  1. Money
  2. Love

If you have money, but no love, you’re termed as a greedy workaholic. On the other hand, if you have love, but no money, you’re called a hopeless romantic with no future. And if you’re one of the lucky ones to have BOTH, you’re deemed to be living in a fantasy land.

This is what society judges you on, and you being pawns on the chess board, obey it all.

StopĀ caring about what others think you. If you’re a money minded person then give it your all to make enough money that keeps you happy. And if you still aren’t happy, then maybe you’re not that money minded after all.

If you’re a hopeless romantic, find princess bride as soon as you can because even a century with her will be some years too short.

Life doesn’t have a particular aim. We weren’t intended. Life is just a huge miraculous mistake of nature. Something we never had, have or will understand. All that is certain is our ability to decide what we want with it. Nothing is right, and nothing is wrong. It’s just a choice you make. What makes it right or wrong is society’s approval and perception of those choices.

Think of life as a train journey. People will board and get off at their decided stops. Just remember to never get off with anyone till you reach your destination.
