Everyone holds people’s opinions on a pedestal and base their lives around it!
However, have you ever read the definition of an ‘opinion’?
A view or a judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.
The opinion is not based on facts neither does the person have the 100% knowledge of your life?
Then why are these opinions so important?
Think about it.
If you think about the past, then you’d regret it.
If you think about the future, then you’d always be anxious.
Be in the present! Live and enjoy each day to its fullest!
Only the achievements are compared, not the goals or the aspirations or the journey or the day-to-day life!
It’s simply astonishing how the society works!
The best way to move forward in life is to follow your Journey and stay in your lane!
Can’t get any simpler than that!
Celebrate others successes instead of dwelling over them!
Support them in their failures instead of enjoying them!
To top it off, walk with others instead of trying to trample them!
Have you ever noticed how the heart beats?
It never beats in a straight line, because that would simply mean you are dead!
It beats upwards and downwards (the heart rate increases and decreases), which means the heart is beating regularly – that’s how it’s supposed to beat.
It also means you’re living.
Our lives work in the same way. However, no one notices it.
If you do the same thing everyday, without any change, for the good or the bad, it resembles the heart beating in a straight line.
Life is about ups and downs. Whenever there’s a down, it also means that you’re going to rise from it and be at the top again.
It also means that you won’t stay at the top for long, and there’ll be a down soon and you should be ready for it instead of being stressed about it or dwell about it when it happens.
Live your life the same way your heart beats!
Some people talk about it, but don’t believe in it.
Some people believe in it, but don’t know how to talk about it.
Some people believe and talk about it, they are the authentic ones.
It can be anything.
Who are you listening to?
Are you letting external or internal factors affect your life?
Either or both have an impact, it’s up to you, your choices define the impact.
You can be in control of your destiny.
Define these factors and taking the first step towards changing them is the first step.
Life is so simple, yet we complicate it.
We twist it with other people’s judgements and opinions; we confuse it with keeping materialistic goals at the benchmark to become successful; we hinder its progress by living a life we don’t want to live.
And for what?
