How many times have we woken up to a thought what if what we are expecting today to happen doesn’t go the way we want it to?
Be it a cricketer, who wants to score and contribute in the next IPL game to see his team through to victory,
Be it an investment banker, who wants to make that life changing deal, hoping to retire at age 40,
Be it an advertising professional, who wants to get out the most creative idea, that he has to offer to the world today,
Be it an actor, who thinks of making it big in the Bollywood industry, with his first big hit this very Friday,
Be it a doctor, who wants to successfully conduct the most complicated surgery he has ever done,
Be it a scientist, who wants to make that all important discovery, which would benefit the mankind in times to come,
Be it a student, who dreams of becoming an IAS officer and whose civil services results are supposed to be out the very day,
Be it a labourer, who is hoping to get that meal for the day, which he aspires for everyday in his life,
But no matter, how much one aspires to make this day, the most significant day of his life, there is that fear of seeing it not happening.
Some might have lost hope, seeing the fear coming true everyday of their lives,
Some might want to maintain a so called positive demeanor, hoping the day will come sooner or later,
There are only few, who manage to come out of this fear, and start to live life, as it is supposed to be experienced and cherished.
Have you ever wondered why most of us find ourselves incapable of relieving us from this fear?
Is it because of the assets that we have accumulated over a period of time and for which we are liable to repay a huge debt?
Is it because we have this concept of a wonderful materialistic life towards which we keep putting in the hard work?
Is it because we feel we are burdened with loads of responsibilities and expectations from the near and dear ones?
Whatever might be the reason, for which we see ourselves doing what we do, day-in-day-out, have you ever wondered, whether this was how life was meant to be?
Getting up, rushing into the daily chores, running off to work, coming back late, barely having time for dinner and family, pushing off to bed, and then repeating the same everyday.
Was such the very concept of life, we were born to?
Life is much more than what most of us have made it into.
Isn’t it about getting up each morning from the bed of death to witness another beautiful day?
Isn’t it about getting another chance to spread the joy and make others happy around you?
Isn’t it about working towards a cause that really gets you going, aimed at making this world a wonderful place to live in?
And much more…
If you think, it is, then why not just get that fear out of your life forever and ever.
After all, one day, each one of us know, where we would end up, having realized this, don’t you think, it’s high time we say goodbye to our fears and start living!
