Learn to forgive yourself. For it is you alone who knows what it means to walk on the path destined for you. Others may help you, mock you or won’t bother to do anything about you. How long will you depend on the opinions of others to act like crutches for you to stand on?
It’s up to you – whether you stop and pay heed to everything they say, do OR whether you march ahead on your own way.
To borrow a line from a great movie : ” Life comes down to simple choice – Get busy living or get busy dying”.
It all comes down to your choice – make the right one.
Everyone is surrounded by actions and their results. A person works day in and day out towards goals that are immediate, short term and long term in nature. Sometimes the results may put you down and sometimes they can fire your spirit to rise to greater heights.
When we witness success , one gets easily seduced by the charm it brings with it. For failure, no one bothers to even look or consider.
There are many who come forth to hail a person on top of their shoulders in times of success. But in failure, no one comes forth to even lift the person from the ground. It is important to be there when your near and dear ones face failure. Sincere gentle gestures and kind words go a long way in helping a person stand on their feet so that they can once again attempt and live.
Try to make sure that when in need the “Hand of Grace” that reaches out to others is yours. You never know when you too will need a “Hand of Grace” to get up back on your feet.
Life, instead of living, in today’s world has been transformed into a race.
One needs to have a plan at hand for every day, week or according to task at hand. Sometimes you hit all the right cords sometimes miss some. It is all sunshine if you manage to seize the moment and somewhere between or under the stars and the drain if you miss. It is tough but life always is. Treasure the moments when it is easy on you, for you never know what the future may hold.
Winning and loosing depends on so many factors that are very difficult to count upon. Some tangible and others intangible.
In this race it’s okay to pause every now and then, reevaluate the goals, strategy and move ahead. Never abandon life for meaningless pursuits that only provide momentary euphoria.
Don’t forget to live. Celebrate if things go as per plan, cheer up if they don’t – re-evaluate, change your strategy, bide some time and again go for it. When the dust settles down at the end of the day, it will be you and you alone answerable to yourself.
So, don’t forget to be kind to yourself – if you don’t who will.
