Ever saved a life?
Ever thought you could give someone a new lease of life?
Ever thought about starting again?
I'm going all Mitch Albom right now, but i don't suppose you've given this stuff much thought. Three questions about a new creation that mothers may or may not answer, but each one of us are certainly qualified at some or the other point of life to do that. My moment's not come yet, it's not everyday that you seek opportunities to rescue people from a situation they could regret.I'm happy today, and that's what matters.Practically perfect if not politically.
I'm starting again.'Yet' again for those who know me.But i'm not even promising this is the last time i'm granting myself yet another fresh breath of the life i think is reasonably good.I can't tell whether this is the right thing to do, or whether this is the outlook i will stick to through life.all that is immaterial,for now, what matters to me, is that i think I'm right.Ever had a better feeling?
Decisions we make through life about ourselves,our kin,our friends are something we give a lot of thought to, na?simple everyday decisions, or even the big ones where each word could alter a life.we weigh the pros and cons, the profits, the losses, everything,before we give a thumbs up to that decision. It's something you may consider obvious. But ever thought about those hunches,impulsive acts people do in the rush of the moment?
We'ce been brainwashed against such decisions, all lores telling us how people act impulsively,making wrong decisons, and later regretting their doings. They may not be wrong,but try shedding light on the right decisions people make when they trust their gut, when someone misses a flight which crashes hours later because it just doesnt feel right, when two people fall in love for no apparent reason in the face of adversity, when you break into a run in front of a hundred people just because you feel like, when you cry like a baby, even though you're macho, without meaning.
a large part of the human development happened due to hunches.due to impulsive decisions, and due to the faith that whatever happens in the future because of one's actions will be one's own doing and responsibility, and having no one to blame jus because you followed your heart. That defines freedom to me. The mute but strong fact that I dont live under the burden of others' decisions which i unwillingly accepted. Apne pairo par khade rehna? Expressing yourself because you feel it can change something, and more importantly, because it can calm your conscience? Nothing that makes me happier.
I'll be living that way. My new makeover. I'm beginning to see people in a new light now. i don't have to stop myself, be polite, watch around for someone else. i learnt that everyone is responsible for their own living, and people who think not are kidding themselves. My mentor here, is, well, Geet from 'Jab We Met'.I'm not a religious film follower, but i just realised how strong her message was. How important it is to kick aside dogma, and follow your heart. I'd never want to blame someone else for having lived my life, give someone else the credit of making decisions for me. I know it sounds selfish and egotist, but when you say 'it's my life', you gotta make it yours. and that doesnt mean doing what you like.it means doin what you like with responsibility, only when your sure that even if the decisions you make aren't planned, impulsive actually, you won't regret them. Follow your heart isn't a cliched movie term anymore, look at it as a way of life, and even if you're living yet another day only, then you'll be glad you lived it under your conditiond and beliefs.
That's when you're saving a life. Yours. That's when you're granting someone a new lease of life. That's when you're staring all over again. a person who learns to do things from the heart learns a lot, and teaches a lot too. Asking for help is a sign of strength, realising your follies a sign of intelligence, and the will to correct them a sign of courage. I guess somewhere down the line I'll be glad i took the decisions i did, and somebody will be grateful for that too. We can't tell what the future will bring us, how much our present actions wll affect us however confident we are about them being right. but somewhere in the future, when i look bck, i know i'll be glad having listen to my heart.
