Future – One phase we are always worried about.
Past – One phase we always dwell upon.
But what about our present. Are we really living it or surviving it?
I often find myself worrying what my future would be like. I contemplate the events that have already occurred. Don’t we all do this? we all are working towards making our life better. It is undoubtedly great. But in this quest to be happy later in life, aren’t we missing out on our happiness, joys today?
While assembling my textbooks today, I found my old sketching book. Covered in dust, just like my happiness today. Going through its pages, childhood memories ran through my mind.
No, it wasn’t about missing my past. It was about missing my today. Just like that one book getting lost in the stack of thousands of books, our present happiness is getting weighed down somewhere because of future responsibilities.
We are searching for things to make our future perfect. But I guess the most important thing required is to make our today perfect.
Why can’t we understand that our present is the future of our past? We made plans for this day but we are again spending it making plans for tomorrow.
We always compromise our short term joys for our long term goals.
I still remember thousands of plans I made spending my days, hours, minutes for my future which never really happened. How I wish I actually lived those moments instead of spending them planning other moments!
We always think happiness is a ‘Future thing’. No it isn’t, it is a ‘present thing’. We can be happy today.
Do you remember the last time you went somewhere and didn’t click several photos to make that moment immortal?
I guess we believe more in capturing moments rather than actually living it.
Our future hasn’t arrived yet.Till then, let’s step out in the rain more often, laugh at nonsense jokes, dance crazily, draw funky pictures, paint our faces while colouring, smile more. Basically, let’s LIVE today!
