The Life Complex

Life — A simple four-lettered simple word that can give you so many mixes of emotions at the same time. If you are reading this, may at this very moment you might be happy or sad or angry or numb, and that’s completely okay! Before starting, I just want you to know that whatever you are feeling right now, it is completely okay to feel that way. Not all days are the same and thus the emotions we feel also don’t have to be the same.

We all are going through some phases in our life right now, and there will be changes. Those changes may be good or maybe bad, it doesn’t matter; make sure that you treat those changes like a part of life, and not label them. Don’t label those changes as good or bad, because every change you go through in this life would be an invaluable learning experience and that is what matters. That at the end of the day before you go to bed, you don’t think about what good thing or bad thing happened to you, but what did you learn today?

I know easier said than done, but isn’t it worth a try, right?

The thing is — — all the good things that can probably happen to a human being can happen to you only if you spend your day focusing on working hard and not on what you expected. I mean come on, aren’t we too young (no matter how old you are, you are young) to have a planned day? Shouldn’t we groove and shake (be flexible) with our routines? We all deserve that don’t we?

If life would have gone the way we planned or expected it to go like, trust me, it would have become mundane. And no, I am not telling you to not plan at all. Yes, plannings are good and they help you to be organized but don’t expect that everything will happen according to that plan. Because the moment you start expecting and things don’t happen that way, it will bother you and you won’t be able to do any of the tasks.

And I am not someone who could just say this whole phenomenon as “oh come on! Be flexible” ugh! No. That sounds so sad. Rather, I would say “Oh come on!!! Let’s do an adventure today!”. I know those two sentences mean the same, but the way you look at it makes a difference. In the end, it’s all about how you want to look at things.

Life is surely not easy, but if it would have been, would we have had any stories to tell to our friends sipping ‘chai’ or ‘coffee’ on a beautiful evening? Hey you, listen before you finish reading this just know that each effort you put in to achieve something, might not give the result immediately, but at some point, it will surely. No effort put in by you in this lifetime will ever go unrewarded. And before I take your leave, remember YOU GOT THIS!
