Life is uncertain….the other day as I was flicking through TV channels I came across a news item saying 2012 being the year of end of this world. With Global warming taking over the world it’s high time we realize that this will soon lead to make the world a massive ice age. Remember the movie, “The Day after Tomorrow”, which depicts catastrophic effects of Global Warming and Global Cooling. The movie had brought chills down my spine and so did this news.
It is said, “Procrastination is the thief of time”. However our life today is more or less rules by this procrastination. There are many things we wish to do but somehow they are passed on to tomorrow because of our commitments to the world which need to be fulfilled today. Have we ever thought how much this world cares for us? And how much will it bother others, when we breathe our last.
Life gives us a lot of opportunities….but we don’t make use of them. As a quote from A. POWELL DAVIES says”Life is just a chance to grow a soul.”Our life in itself is a learning experience. What we do today becomes a lesson tomorrow. It is said,” The philosophy of one generation is the common sense of the next.” (src: orkut) Learning helps us grow as a person and make us to be a better human being.
However this learning somehow is not given the required importance after a certain age. We get so much involved in family, jobs and the like that we hardly ever think of our dreams and ambitions. Please don’t get me wrong, I am not blaming the family, nor am I talking about ignoring responsibilities. I am just talking about involving yourself into your list of priorities. This is something many of us can’t seem to do. And while taking so much are of other things we somewhere forget to dream.
Dreams sometimes become the mirrors to our souls. They express our unfulfilled desires. When we stop dreaming it’s as if we have stopped communicating with ourselves. Our soul this way is just left to itself, lonely and disappointed. Remember, “Shahid Kapur in Jab We Met.” He had given up on his singing on being showered with responsibilities. And thus we saw his character was unhappy and depressed.
Dreaming is not only about you. It’s about others too. Living forever is all about leaving a legacy. (Robin Sharma).
We can’t predict tomorrow. But today is in our hands and we can definitely make the most of it. And it is important to make the most of today. This is all about enjoying what you do and having a perfect day. Living as if there is no tomorrow. As ABRAHAM LINCOLN put it “And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
🙂 Good Luck
