Amor Vida : Love Life Day 17

Someone today sent me a message and I felt that I must share it with you all. It’s worth a read. Here it is –

*Don’t know who wrote this… But beautiful…….*

Somewhere between *“Crying loudly to seek attention”* 

and *“Crying silently to avoid attention”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Katti!!”* and *“Blocked”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Believing in happy endings”* and *“Accepting the reality”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“stealing eclairs of your sis”* and *“Bringing Silk for her”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Just five more mins Mom”* and *“Pressing the snooze button”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Broken Pencils”* and 

*“Broken Hearts”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Crying out loud just to get what we want”* and 

*“Holding our tears when we are broken inside”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“We are Best Friends Forever”* and *“Knowing that nothing truly lasts”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“I want to grow up”* and 

*“I want to be a child again”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Lets meet and plan”* and 

*“Lets plan and meet”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Eagerly waiting”* and 

*“Forever waiting”*, 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Parents fulfilling our wish”* and 

*“We Fulfilling our parent’s dream”,*

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“ 7 pani puris for 1 rupee”* and 

*“1 pani puri for 7 rupees”,*

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Ground mai aaja”* and 

*“Online aaja”,* 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Craving for pizza”* and 

*“Craving for home food”,* 

we grew up!!
Somewhere between 

*“Waking up at 6 am”* and 

*“Sleeping at 6 am”,* we grew up!!

This is almost the entire truth, with little tit bits of our daily lives. Along with this message I would also like to add my own thought on how we change as a person and get accustomed to something unknown. 

We begin our adulthood journey with great promises to ourselves, sometimes the promise is to change the world, or to make parents proud or to just chill but it doesn’t matter how and where we begin as we almost always ends up in a rut.

Somewhere in between we loose focus and unimportant things becomes important. Who said what, who ignored us, who taunted and who stopped being our friend. We get caught up in day to day redundancy and forget that ultimate goal we had for ourselves. The goal which would make us stand apart. The only goal which would make us proud of our own self. 

I know it’s tough to completely remove yourself from a situation which is causing you pain but if you TRY then you can atleast look at the bigger picture and feel that inner peace.

Do this when next time you are facing an emotional turbulence: go outside, take few deep breaths and ask yourself “is this time going to be remembered after 5 years?” Mostly the answer will be No.

So if the thing is not worth remembering then why to get worked up at this moment. 

Then ask yourself “If I let this go then will I be a braver and better person?”

Most probably the answer will be Yes.

So that is what we ought to do. Let it be. You are there at that moment to learn some resilience and patience. Don’t lash out at someone just because they are lashing out. Don’t hate just because they are hating. Don’t get hurt because things are hurting. Because you are special. You are perfect in your own way. You are the one who takes a high road. And most importantly these all dies not matter when you look at the bigger picture.

Amor la vida.

Adios amigos.
