you Only live your life. Not a James Bond Pot Boiler. No guns and Gals .So much has been said about life and Bond in one of his movies says,” there’s no point living if you can’t feel alive”
Feeling alive is leading life the way you want-purposeful or not, its one’s choice.
But are we living our lives the way we want? An honest Question, thou. Oftentimes, most people (may be), live their life for others- to please others, to be in their good books (FB included!).
Living one’s life for the cause of others is noble, like Mother Theresa. This is not to suggest that one should not live for others…
LIfe – Best Example Of Human Being Behaviour
For an ordinary mortal, life needs to be fulfilling and fun filling and as the adage goes,” Add life to the years and not years to it”. True.
Do not feel that it is a Heavy Barrel to be dragged and hence is drudgery. But why do people live life that way?
The Prime consideration in most of the cases is such people want an appreciation. A typical Identity crisis pervades them.
Therefore, imitating the life style and not emulating, comes easy. The result is one looses one’s space and shuts off and does not hear, if not listen to the Inner Voice.
Following inner voice may be a challenge as such a course may not be appreciated by people who surround you. At least that is what one feels.
Another reason could be one is unable to accept what is natural. The feeling is Natural is raw, unprocessed and not acceptable in the eco system.
This leads to denying oneself of one’s own uniqueness. Suppose my natural tendency is to speak in a rather informal manner and does not care a damn for an Authority figure.
If you as said earlier, fall in love with yourself, you tend to be natural or normal and enjoy your own life and would not like to hire or take on lease the others’ life.
If you do not like yourself, the alterative is one of aping or choosing other models on the ramp, because for you, life is like a Ramp and you fail to appreciate beyond that.
Mimicking other’s life might give a transient gratification. Because it might give you instant kick and you feel you are being accepted.
The interesting thing is the so called “others”, are ignorant of your struggle..If any of the members of the group is natural and set their own agenda, this may not be liked as this model is , according to you, not worthy of emulation by you .So much so, there is always a constant struggle with in you , to be or not to be like you- the typical Shakespearean dilemma.
Who can pull you out of this struggle? The first person to do so is, ‘YOU’. Before one says, life is short or long, respect the God’s Gift. You are the blessed or gifted soul and you have a specific purpose- the purpose of living for yourself.
You belong to you .You are the Master of your life. You draw your own graph, sing your own tune and enjoy those melodies.
While enjoying our lives, we are also conscious of the, as tweeted earlier, space of others.
You only live once and enjoy it fully!
