The complicated response

Life. It’s so complicated. Right? Makes us question our simple decisions. Even the ones that we think don’t matter. What if we were to choose differently. What if we chose the chicken instead of pork or to watch cricket instead of chelsea match. How does it even affect all our judgements and in turn our life? How on earth are we supposed to know what is right to do and what is not. We can’t even decide which shirt to put on in the morning before office. We can’t decide weather to listen to Blink 182 or Black Sabbath. How on earth are we supposed to recognise the right from wrong? The ultimate truth from the ultimate remorse. The fallen with the enlightened.

So many question haunting us each day. Right? And most of it we are still wondering on ur heads even now. How can we know make sure what to even think and what to ignore and move on in life. Well, life is a complicated thing after all. Maybe we are not supposed to figure out everything after all. Maybe we will know when it’s time to know. And we will act when it’s time to act accordingly. We might just step into the someone else’s shoes and act unnaturally for a while. Try filling the eternal void with things and people who don’t belong there. But eventually someone somehow will come and rescue us. We all have someone we can rely on. May it be the dad , mom, sister, brother, lover, or the dearest of friend. But then again, what if we don’t recognise whom to rely on. Quite disturbing, isn’t it?

Freedom to Think can sometimes be contagious

Freedom to Think can sometimes be contagious

How about we don’t think of anything. The good. The bad. None of it. What then? Will we cease to exist? Will the distractions and need of ours suddenly change? Will be gather enough courage to let go? I guess we won’t. Humans by nature tend to return to the thing they want the most. Even when they don’t know that they want it. So, Let’s step back a while and reflect upon the last 2 years of our lives. What were we doing? Who were in our life? Are they still there? Who left? Whom we left? Why? Who came? Who stayed? Who cared? Who tried using us? If you can answer all the questions of those correctly, maybe your life ain’t that messed up as mine.. But let’s pretend we all are sitting on the same boat anyway. Would you tell me the answers to all of those? Or would you just ignore that and move on with what it is you were doing? Don’t ignore.. Not yet at least. We are not done yet. There still are a million and more questions unanswered. Are you curious enough to ask me to ask you to answer them? Maybe not. But you do want to know the questions. Right? That is the basic of what we have become now. We don’t listen others to understand the gravity of the situation or to understand what the person means. We simple listen to others because we need to respond. We’ve programmed our brains to respond to anything and everything coming from everything and anyone no matter if it matters or not. Because we ultimately do not think about what matters anymore. Let’s turn the page up and read again of where we started of from.. It all matters.

So, lets all take a moment to grasp the dire need of the situation and analyse what has been the most thoughtless moment of the day. You are devising a response to all that read right now. What if I told you, Scratch that off. We don’t need a reply here. All we need to think of what we are doing with our lives right now. 

I’ll give you some space to think.. Let me know what you thought.. 

Oh wait! That would be a response….. 😉

Dare to Dream?

Dreams come in various forms. Not just some goal you want to achieve. Not just any place you want to visit. Not just someone you want to becomedreams_quote_4. It can be as big as becoming the president or next real life superhero, to getting to that one special person who have wanted all your life.

Really, just think, why did we start dreaming in the first place? Why do we imagine weird stuffs in our dreams? Why even do we have to run away or towards certain things the way we do? There has to be a reason behind all this. Of course there is. It’s all our subconscious mind playing nasty tricks on us. Telling us what we don’t have the guts to accept. Asking us to forget everyone and think about ourselves for one tiny moment. Let everything go and pursue your own one piece. However, we don’t do that.  Instead, we get up and do what needs to be done, regardless of what we want to do. We have become so headstrong and adamant on things that we can’t handle the little things that we can otherwise.

When did we step out that childish dream pursuer and step into these adult boots that weighs down on us? When did we stop listening to our own hearts and start hearing other people’s nonsense? When did we start becoming the person we once swore we shall never become? I’ll tell you when. It’s when we gave up on our dreams. You can dream of world peace or being the richest man or getting together with your dream girl even. But you will not get it, unless you have actually started working for it. Maybe you are doing what you can, but it might or not might not work. We need to have that reality check in life and get to our dreams by asserting to our goals whenever we can. Someday, you might make your own stand. So, let that day be today. Even if your dream personifies and tells you it can’t be done, you should be that adamant and head strong to make it happen. Nobody else will come to your dream rescue. Everyone is busy fulfilling their own goals. Let’s gear up and get to work. For a day wasted in dreaming to achieve that dream, is another day wasted in not having it. And if you have no dream, wait for it. We don’t go searching our dreams, our dreams come to us. Make sure you recognise them, before it’s too late. 

As for me, I’ve started working to my dream. Whatever life has in it’s arms, I’ll gladly accept it. And I’ll cherish it for the rest of my life. I’m certain of what I want, and I’ll have it in due time eventually and most definitely. And if by chance, I can’t have it, well, then it was worth dying in trying to have it.. Right? 

A dream thirst can only be fulfilled with the dream itself. 

Ciao..

Life at 23

I guess writing is now a quarterly thing. Believe it or not, I’ve been meaning to write since a long time now. Just never got through with the lazy no-time cursing part and to the actual writing part. Well, here I am.

Life Awaits you on the other side

Life Awaits

 

But now that I’m here, I’m not sure what exactly to write. But I guess I’ll write something that’s been stuck in my head since a long time now. “What am I doing? Who am I doing it for? What’s my purpose?” Maybe some of you can relate to such questions. Maybe not. Either way, you are at a stage of your life where you have some important decisions in your life. Some decisions that you might not be sure about yourself yet. But you’ve made them nonetheless. How asking yourself now, “How many people actually benefitted from that decision? And has it really, no I mean Has it REALLY made the change in your life that you were expecting? Are you happy about the decision?”

Too many questions. But then life’s one big question in itself. Anyways, what does a normal 23 year old guy do? Well, I wouldn’t know. People call me weird anyway. And I don’t blame them. But I’ve been trying to figure out what exactly does a 23 year old guy do anyway. I left my old job at ProvenLogic. Joined Opinio couple of months ago. Got my first Bike. And drove 250+ kms straight up on one side of the trip. The return, we of course found a shortcut. The journey is yet another story. 😉 Wait for it fellas!! Got my dream phone. Yes, the iPhone 6s at a price where everyone laughed at me. Literally. But who cares. Nobody plans on future saving at 23 anyway. Though my bank manager keeps telling me otherwise as she tries to lure me in different schemes of investments. Lol!

And so, that’s what I’ve been upto during my last few months. Lately, I’ve been bored and running out of things to do. Or maybe too many to do at once. And then none to do at times. Life’s been irregular. And my plans seem to have ditched me. 😛 Well, what can you expect from someone who dedicatedly lives the No-Shave November. Lol! My office mates literally freaked out when I did shave. And yes, So, I broke the November record. But this time I went on till more than a month. Now, that’s a new record! Achievement Unlocked! 😀 Ok, I’ll send someone to that prize for me. In the meantime, I went to my first rock concert. Slash was in town and I had to see him. (Thanks to a friend of mine who informed me though). And glad that I went. Been a long time since I spent any time for myself. And I loved it.

Well, Ya’ll Good folks who are still reading my boring life, here’s a good thing that I learnt. Life lesson learnt number #whocares : “Heart comes first. Live with no regrets or don’t live at all!”

 

Cheers Mate!

Walk Away

Walk Away

 So, After a long gap of 6 months or so, I’m back here. Not like anybody was awaiting eagerly, or was someone? You never really get to know unless you are approached over it. Isn’t it? Trust me, I’ve been meaning to write since I moved to Bangalore about 8months now. Gosh, been a long time. Never realised how fast time flew in the midst of all the happenings and non-happenings.

So, today’s just one of those mornings, when I work up from a severe headache sleep, and felt life’s more than living on the edge and not caring. We can live our life as if we don’t care as to what happens with us, but to what consequences? We often run after fun and easy life so hard, that we forget the reason we all have reached this far for. Where we started, the people who were there to help us out. I’m not talking about the person who helped you simply cause they thought you’re cute. I’m talking about that person, who knew you were out of your league and still helped anyway. I’m talking about that person, who wanted to see you cross the limits and be where you are right now. I’m talking about that person, who got no benefit from your success other than watching you grow. And still these are the person that we forget most easily. Cause they don’t expect anything in return. They are just people who love to see you be happy with what you are doing. It’s funny, how we easily forget these people and move on our life with those who just hopes and tries to get in your life so bad. Today, let’s take a moment and ponder over our lives and search for all those people who was there for you, when you didn’t need them to be but wanted them to stay.

If you are reading these, probably you are already thinking about such few people. What if I told you, you are still not thinking about the real ones. You are still thinking about the ones right infront of your eyes, maybe some of those whom you don’t wanna talk to again. Yet again, proving the basic human nature of pushing out the good ones and keeping close the ones that we only think we can’t live without. We think if we abandon this group, what if we never find any other so fun to hang out with.

Look Back

Maybe something you left behind..

So, we end up letting go the ones we actually want to be with, to stay with people whom we just wanna spend some “fun” time with. Cause they will talk about you otherwise. Such afraid creatures are we. Afraid to let go of the shiny new smartphone while trying to hide the old Nokia. Yes, smartphones are better. I, myself can’t stay without it. But, why does that even let me ignore that fact that I loved my Nokia phone, only cause our society would think I’m classless and has no sense of fashion. At the end of the day, when you actually need to talk to someone, it’s the Nokia that comes to save your life. Smartphone’s are just dead long ago. 

There’s always a future to look up to. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t look down at the ladder, which helped us climb so high that we are now clouded by our own judgmental behaviour. Look over your shoulders. There’s someone watching over you right now. 😉
