I am another you

Whenever anyone tells me life is hard, it is a struggle, I feel congested, tied down and uncomfortable. According to certain norms, there are certain things that you and I should be doing. For instance, I should be studying right now, but I am not. For anyone one of you out there, you should be working, cooking, travelling, learning, sleeping, socializing, etc etc. We should be working to fulfill our duties. Towards our families, friends, society, workplaces, bosses and the list goes on.

I would like to tell you that all of this is absolute bullshit. We do not need to do this, we do not have to do that. Life isn’t compulsion folks. It’s about taking a minute off and asking yourself, ‘ Is this what I really want? ‘ and if the answer is no, then don’t do it! Go quit your job. Go face someone or something you have always been in fear of. Sleep a little late. Cook your favourite dessert. Take time off to watch your television program. Go for a movie with your kids. Make sand castles at the beach, dance like a maniac in marriage processions, play Holi in the bathroom. Sing nursery rhymes as you walk down the street.

As you liberate yourself, your presence will automatically liberate others.

We are here to enjoy a roller coaster ride not to while away time typing in front of an electronic box (you can count me outta this one for now :P). Do what you have always wanted to do. Make a wish. Hold on to it no matter how ridiculously crazy it may seem.Hold on to it for dear life. If u want it really bad, sooner or later, you will get it. Allow the magic to unfold. Stop trying to plan each day, each hour and each minute of your life. Go for the unexpected and let the excitement thrill you.

As you embark on this roller coaster ride,feel your stomach muscles tighten as you go up the dreaded plane. Feel the wind whooshing past your face as you plummet down the slope. Feel the love, feel the joy. And mostly, believe. Life is fairy tales folks. Not only for me, but also for each and every one of us. After all, I am another You πŸ™‚

About Ria Gandhi

β€œI really think I write about everyday life. I don't think I'm quite as odd as others say I am. Life is intrinsically, well, boring and dangerous at the same time. At any given moment the floor may open up. Of course, it almost never does; that's what makes it so boring.” ― Edward Gorey
