Look For the miracle.
This beautiful morning, I woke up feeling unnecessary anxiety and thinking about my unproductive week. I looked down the balcony; I could witness the reality of life. Almost everybody walking down the lane was bound by shackles of social commitments or responsibilities. A father was dropping his son off to school bus on the stand, a mother was waiting at the bus stop to go back home after waving at her daughter in school bus, an old man was waiting for traffic to stop, a woman waiting for her help to arrive, a group of men at a tea stall were enjoying their cup of hot brew, which was probably the energy drink for them to pull those heavy hand carts loaded by with metallic pipes and rods. A group of young sisters was walking with their bags and books in hand towards their classes, right across my building.
Almost every one of us opens our eyes in the morning to the same, mundane life. We probably live the same life for 365 days a year. As long as our routine dictates the way we lead our lives, our bound that leaves the miracles of life unexplored. Look at the fish in the tank. Poor thing! It doesn’t have a choice but to swirl around between those four walls. But, we human beings have the entire universe to explore.
Why can’t we savour every moment of life and let every second sink into our souls? Why can’t we untie ourselves from our routine life and pour excitement in each day that we live? We find it impractical as that’s not how life works, Right? We do not even realize how our “to do list” remained the same over a span of years.
So, today is a very good day to start anything that we want. Do one thing every day that makes you beam wide and laugh vivaciously. Start living today. Expand your wings, let your feathers breathe and embrace the freedom of life. Let every moment of your life touch your heart.
