Wherever you are in life, nobody can turn down an uplifting post, right?
Whoever you are, you must either be paving your own path, or walking on a fixed path paved by others. You are either embracing your originality while taking unsure steps into the future, or confidently stepping forward with monotonous movements. Whatever you’re doing, it’s defining you uniquely every step of the way so isn’t it great to know that you won’t be lost crowd of identical people with identical movements and identical thoughts because no one else can be like you?
I have a fear of time. I wouldn’t wish for immortality but it terrifies me to think of the past and the future, to notice how quickly time flies by and to imagine that every moment of life will speed past me until I reach the end of this line. And then there’s the fear of regret that makes me want to experience everything the world has to offer.
Is it just me?
Probably just me.
But if you feel the way I do, I want to tell you that it’s okay and you’re not alone. It’s okay to stumble while trying to follow the pre-designed way of life. It’s okay to cry when you trip and lag a few steps while attempting to reach the top. It’s okay to miss a few opportunities because your life is merely a line in the vast field of possibilities. Unless you’re an extremely lucky optimist, you will constantly have these ‘what if’s and ‘if only’s pushing towards the front of your mind but just know that, at the end, all these choices you make will result in your life turning out exactly the way you want it to be. It may not be ideally perfect but it’ll be perfect in your eyes.
So, chase away any remaining darkness from your heart, my readers! Remember to give a smile to anyone looking anything less than happy because, I mean, it won’t hurt anyone anyway. Although if the person responds with a frown or a grumpy look, revert back to your pessimistic old self and frown back. At least that’s what I’d do.
