Alright people, first post of 2016 coming down nearly at the end first month of 2016. This time my big bad procrastination habit is not the reason trust me on that, it is just that amidst all the chaos going on in the blogger world about “THE” first post of the year, I just couldn’t tumble down the well of ideas that I had to find out the one thing that I would love to share as my first blog of the year. Yeah I know nobody might care much but by the end of first week of Jan I became super obsessed with my idea of putting out something only when I can do it being true to myself and not just for the sake of it.
I waited for the moment when magically something clicks and you rush towards your laptop to vomit down all in your mind as soon as possible just cause you don’t want to miss on anything even by chance. I never believed that ideas come and go, I was of the opinion that once you have an idea or thought in your mind it will stay with you till it takes a form that you can look, see maybe just feel and appreciate. But since I heard the Ted Talk by Elizabeth Gilbert on “Your Elusive Creative Genius” (which by the way is a real good watch) I agreed to disagree with my own prior belief. She beautifully quoted that ideas come and go, if you do not give respect to them and appreciate them the moment that they arrive, they literally might get very offended and leave you to find someone else who understands their worth and acts on them. You see the Universe is all about Action and all for the man who Acts.
I picked and dropped many ideas like : 2015 review, moments I cherished in 2015, things I am looking forward to in 2016, my 2016 bucket list ( that idea went real crazy and really long in my mind), quotes to live by in 2016 & blah blah blah. All came and went leaving me with more love for the next idea that was about to come. Why today and now? Well it was just another Friday evening till I decided to watch “Remember Me” , ( just for Robert Pattinson I thought) and without any spoilers for those who haven’t seen it I would safely say that it hit me hard with an array of thoughts coming in from all dimensions and I just wanted to blurt them out as is. The dialogues are so deep and the fact that life is not always fair but you should still always give your fair share of love and affection to the one great gift that anyone can get “Life”.
We often pass years after years after years thinking about the past or worrying over the future. The present gets lost somewhere amidst our goals and hopes and sorrows and dreams. Sometimes appreciating the moment right here right now is essential to get your center of gravity back in place. It’s not that dreams won’t make you fly anymore or worries won’t drag you down but I am hoping that we all will find our space between all craziness around to smile for ourselves, to love the moments we live, to do to the right things, to do that has to be done and to become a memory that is cherished for ages to come.
Hoping we have an exciting year ahead!!
