One hour later, it would be one month down. Somehow, it feels like a long time ago, that I was caught up in the frenzy of the New Year celebrations.
Truth to tell, I feel kind of more “off the track” of late. I do feel happy and content in my surroundings but also (sigh!) a little bit restless.
Flipping through the channels, (yes, I am finally sitting in front of the big screen!!) one thought that keeps on nagging my conscience is; its 2013 and you’re growing in no way younger; so what have you done so far? What have you promised to yourself?
Promise?! To myself?! You’ve got to be kidding!!
Why? You have to give an assurance to yourself over something? Or are you not important to promise yourself something?!
No it’s not that; it’s just that there’s nothing much to promise myself. I have already made a list of resolutions.
No, I’m talking about “promise”. To give yourself what you really want. To take an undertaking or vow only for yourself.
I already have more blessings than I can count. So what do I want more?
Are your blessings making you too set in life? What about making those blessings into talents ? What about your dreams? Your dream to make a difference…
….. That’s what I am doing here….
Is that enough? Not the realistic dreams, but your dream to “live life” or are you falling into the good old comfortable routine?
We need routines and yes, I always tend to fall into one.
Then why are you restless? Or is it “dissatisfaction cloaked”? Or are you hiding from taking a chance? What happened to your “bucket list”?!!
My bucket list; there was one maybe five years ago; but no more.
I don’t know !!
Then this what I have to say;
“We don’t have all the time in the world.
You need to live life for yourself; not selfishly but true to your inner voice and to your inner self.
A promise to; free yourself of the constraints of the day, and to just explore life.
To do what you want to do, to take chances and to make changes.
Walk that extra mile, make a new path and if you feel like running, hike up your skirts and just run.
Yes, we do live in a society but do re-script the rules once a while; only for you to live life.
Some bridges may need to be burnt. In that case, burn them and find another way to crossover. But whatever it may be, take care not to lose your passion for life.
Just run with the wind once a while and breathe in what is there around you.
All I am asking you, is to promise yourself to make your bucket list …
And in doing so…dream big, take small steps, jump a little, walk a new path, sail through un-chartered waters, run awhile, find life and most of all in doing so; find peace in your inner self ….
