Day 8 #BlogchatterA2Z
It has been a roller coaster ride since this challenge commenced and everything has picked up pace in life. Thoughts are completing the circuit as if the mind is going through a Grand Prix and anxiety levels have their own train to catch.
There is no way to beat the urgency to read and reciprocate to so many talented bloggers on the wagon, that sleep has decided to sacrifice its usual quota for the month and brain has adjusted itself to operate on boost mode.
I know it’s a crazy carnival and we all are enjoying it thoroughly. What is less worrying is the fact that only 18 more days to go and it is quite manageable for most of us (it’s actually taking a toll on me 😛 ), but what after that!
No I am not referring to blogging related activities but everything else in life. Do we intend to slow the pace for once and reflect back? So many minutes, hours and years, non-stop with our heads bowed or looking straight ahead. Every moment we keep rushing into things and let others go over our head.
Stop for a while and refer your routine. Not one pace slower than yesterday, not one meal that you relished but gulped, not one conversation worth replaying in hindsight and not one thought shared all by yourself. This morning I just sat on my bean bag with a mug full of milk (yes I love milk and dairy products) and simply watched the rituals unfold. It’s amazing and incredible how much time we lose all throughout and all the credit goes to haste.
I am not sure why this happens but I can assure it can be avoided. Not venturing into the technicalities of how brain functions and how speed and accuracy act as trade offs while making decisions, it’s important to understand that we are not here for a thousand years but very limited period of time. And for the same reason the supreme force has infused so many wonders, vibrant colors and unexplained yet satisfying phenomenons into this world for us to relish and enjoy.
We are so occupied and engrossed in achieving things which have minimal or no significance in life that we so very conveniently have sidelined the accessible. Try to enjoy that shower instead of rushing in and out, play with your creative thoughts, relish the meals with the ones you value, admire the sky and pinch yourself once in a while.
Half of us crib for what we don’t have and the other half for what we do, the remaining live a life so content, for them everyday is an adieu.
I know this post has stretched a bit and I hate preaching 😛 , so I leave you with my thoughts and welcome all the feedback, criticism and suggestions with a smile and an open heart 😀 .
Till then keep SMILING and LIVE some more while you can, for there’ll be plenty of time to drag on 😛 !
Stay tuned for more interesting and thought-provoking posts.
