these days i find it really hard to focus. well, if you have known me for a long time i think you will see that this is not a rare occurence. i am almost always at a loss on what to do. but these days the urge to be sure of what i want to pervades my mind often.
i am not fond of creating plans in my head. why? firstly because i find it too tiresome and secondly i am a such a scatter brain. i think of life as something that is supposed to be grand. and it should be taken just like that-grandly. so planning is out of the question.
but later i found out that when a person is approaching 30s, he or she gets a major philosophical revamp. that’s when i thought, “what do i want to do? what are my dreams?”
if you’re going to ask me that question twenty years before, of course i would have said something like “i want to be a _____”. whatever that is that i want at that time. but now, the old me is confused. what is there to be dreamed about? what can i want to have that will be sure to be mine? like i said, i want to live a grand life. so i am at a loss on how to do it.
because i am a lover of books, and i am a lover of the printed words, i looked for the answer in some of my best cherished volumes of wisdomfound between the pages of the works of leo buscaglia, richard bach, just to name a few…
and i think some clarity came to mind when i read…
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.
this is from richard bach’s book ‘illusions’.
those lines made me realize the power of dreams, of wishes. people just tend to ask for whatever they want without thinking that they have to do something to get it. i was just like that. i always thought that life is there to give, give, give. but i didn’t think that i have to do something to get it.
well, now i am still at a loss on what to do with life. but at least now, i know that life is to be lived grandly and to be lived with fearless hard work.
isn’t life grand?
