We plan for our lives like the various theories; starting with save our life’s earnings assuming we’d live a long life, we’ll sacrifice the moments in the present for the better times in the future. Confusing is it? But most of us live this life full of confusion.

Life like time is one unconstant phenomenon; Everyone knows this but we kinda don’t acknowledge this and keep planning for our later days in life!

Im saying this at the possibility of sounding pessimistic, but, I am a strong believer of the quote that says, ‘Bitter truth is better than sugar-coated bullshit’.

So, why am I mentioning this bitter truth that life is unconstant, we could die any moment?

Because its this truth that’ll set us free from the worldly restrains/rules/regulations, u name it. I’m not saying that the rules of this word are all null and void; but all that I am saying is that its better to live your life thinking whether you’ll be content and happy when your time’s-up.

If not, then, you gotta take charge and set things right in your life my friend. Cuz the only person saving you of your miseries is you and not anyone else.

I know, now you’d be like: it sounds nice, have heard all this crap a gazillion times but how to do that in real.

Honestly, no one knows but, there’s no harm in applying various permutations and combinations for the same. If it works, attaboy; otherwise, onto the next one. The best part of this whole process would be the fact you’d finally step up and do something for yourself.

No matter who/where you are, its never to late to start in life. You don’t have to quit this life that you’ve lived all this while and start afresh all of a sudden. Just steal some moments from this well-calculated theorem of your Life’s Plan and introduce some different-than-your-current-life-things; like learning a language or an instrument or writing for instance, the canvas is all yours and blank: Paint it or repaint it; who cares as long as the canvas stays in your vision.

Let’s try this exercise for fun, it’s ok if you find this lame. But then let’s try lame for a moment ???? Let’s try visualizing the ‘Happy You’.

Go wild and visualize it big: How do you look? Where are you? Whom are you with? What are you wearing? Who knows you? Are you famous? How much do you earn? What do you own?

You’re going great; The next part is: Lets remove stuff from your life one by one (its yours but hiding it from the canvas for a while); with every removed thing I want you to notice if it takes away the feeling of happiness from you as well.

Notice if it’s something materialistic or a person that alters your state of happiness then you need to re-prioritize your happiness.

P.S.: I definitely need to mention that your happiness or contentment in life would not be measured by the social media followers, or the likes and dislikes on your post/tweet. It’s the fact that you wake up and you look forward to your life.

Congratulations on taking the first step towards finding yourself in this carnival called life.
