Get up. Do that thing you always wanted to do.
Get up, brush yourself up and start afresh.
Get up and say it loud, “I am what I choose to be.”
For, what is life if not a bunch of decisions that defines us? Be that decision you want to be known and remembered for. It is never too late or too early to begin. And trust me, I don’t say that just because I hear everyone say it. It does mean something.
The other day I was feeling low. To cheer myself up I started to think everything I love about myself. I thought about what is the one thing that I want to do right now, and this thought kept popping up in my mind. It wasn’t something adventurous or something fancy. It was just this little idea that I had since I started writing. I wanted to have my own website. Yes, just that. Nothing fancy, nothing out-of-the-world fun, just a website. It was exciting. I bought a domain name and a monthly hosting plan and gifted myself my first website. The feeling I had was something I hadn’t felt yet. Such satisfaction! And that day I realized something. It’s important to focus on your feelings. It’s important to focus on yourself. Do things because you want to do it and not because someone expects it of you.
It took me a while to figure these stuff out, but now that I do, it feels great. I don’t have regrets. I don’t feel that I should have done this a year ago or I should have done that a month ago. It just doesn’t matter. I’m glad that I did it now.
Would I’ve felt better had I done it a year ago? Maybe.
It doesn’t matter.
What matters is how much I want to change myself. What matters is how much I’m willing to sacrifice. And I’m willing to give my everything for this one thing I love. Are you?
This is what it comes down to, you know. It all comes down to the one thing you want more than anything else in the world. Get up, grab it. Choose your race and win it. Everything else is secondary.
So what if you got low marks in your exams?
5 years down the line it wouldn’t even matter.
So what if you screwed yourself in the one thing you thought your life depended on? Get up and take that challenge again. Face it head on. Stop worrying that you might fail. Just get up and face the freaking thing. Look it in the eye and say “Come on, you! I ain’t afraid of you.” So what you fail again? Brush yourself up and stand again. Stronger than before. Wiser than before.
Life is not fair. Accept it and stop whining. Just because someone got it easier doesn’t mean that you’ll too. Get it into your system that life is fair to no one. You have to stand upright through everything. Look at your problems in the eye and face them. Be the one thing you always wished to be.
Remember, nothing in life is permanent. After you die, nothing stays except the footprints you leave behind with the kind of work you do. Whatever you do, just make it count. Don’t just live because you have to. Live because it is beautiful to be alive. Cherish the small things around you. Embrace it and appreciate it.
Take a day off from everything and everyone. Take some time out for yourself and think. Stop filtering your thoughts. Let them flow. Let your heart and your mind decide what they want. Listen to them. Stop everything and just focus on that one thing you always wanted to do but kept on ignoring. It doesn’t matter how stupid it sounds to you, just listen to it and do it.
Just do it!
