A perfect world would be one where I would do anything I want, everyone around me cheering about every little thing I do, people surrounded feeding us with inspiration and the energy we need to achieve our goals, all the resources working in our favour, there would not be a single naysayer around. Life would be all Hunky dory! Well, that’s the perfect world! After imagining it for a while, I am back to a little bit of reality now.
I have come to the belief that a perfect world never really might exist. I may be right or I may be blatantly wrong but somehow that seems to be a belief which is capable of driving me ahead now. It makes me realize every time that no matter what I do, there will be problems and challenges, there will be limitations and hiccups sometimes from the external environment and other times from within as well. And I also realize that there seem to be times that I can’t do anything about it either. Well! Nevertheless that probably is the beauty of life.
Amongst the set of reasons I would like to complain about, a starking one would always be about how people around are such morons who would never realize what you are about or what you are trying to do. And I seem to keep meeting such kinds very regularly of late. Maybe it makes me charming that way :P. But I guess when I read this quote, it makes me realize that it is going to be true all through our lives. There will be critics who will always find us wrong, the critics may be our peers, our friends, our family, sometimes our parents and sometimes we ourselves. And it is a very natural course of belief to keep wondering if they are right at all creating self doubt within ourselves which perhaps is the worst deterrent of all.
Then again, I realize they may be true but only to a certain extent, they can be as true in our lives as we let them, but beyond that they don’t have a standing. They don’t make any sense unless we let them. It is easy to fall prey to the external pull in life, but what makes it worthwhile is the internal push. Or like Emerson says, it does take the courage of a soldier to map out a line of action and follow it to the very end. It is going to be heard, people are going to say a lot of things, maybe that’s when we get to realize that we can pretend deaf and if that doesn’t work, we can pretend dumb. They don’t really need to know, you know what you are going to be about and that is probably the only thing that is ever going to matter!
Society May predict but only I determine my destiny!
