Thank you God! You again gave me an opportunity to be alive. I woke up with this thought in my mind and smiled 🙂 I smiled for no reasons.
And then without even realizing, within a few second I was lost in these pool of questions-
“Why am I smiling?”
“Why should I smile?”
” You’ve hurted someone and you’re smiling, how cheap you’re?”
“Why somebody will smile without reasons?”, and so on…
And suddenly I became sad. I became sad for no reasons. I found no reason for smiling and no reason for becoming sad.
This all happened in a minute, and the questions never stopped. They kept on popping up the whole day till my colleague sitting next to me cracked jokes. She cracked 5 jokes and I laughed at 1. I lost 4 moments to be happy. Just because of one reason.
… That one reason was to be “absent in PRESENT”. Till she cracked all the 4 jokes, I was present in the past thinking about the morning incident and I was not aware what was going on around me at that moment. And even I fooled myself by this weird question- ‘I was not thinking anything then how come I never laughed for previous 4 jokes?’ But when she slapped me hard, saying “Kabhi hans bhi liya kar”. I told my mind to smile again and that very moment my chain of thoughts was broken. I chose to smile, I chose my thoughts I wanted at that moment. And when the chain was broken I was free, free to laugh, free to think the way I want.
We humans are simple by design but we make it complex by our own thoughts. Till we don’t break the chain of thoughts that we don’t want, we will become WHO WE ARE NOT. Yes, thoughts are the only controlling power and they can make us WHAT WE CAN BE. Let’s recreate them and be better!
Let’s be present, listen to ourself, think what we want, kick off the unwanted thoughts, take a move, and here we GOAL!
Love yourself and be yourself, and the world will love you without reasons. 🙂 🙂 Happy Makar Sankranti!
